What was the reason for the Hale hate?

Probably something deep-rooted. Female Shepard killed his father maybe?

They already sold out with the multiplayer online garbage. Nothing else surprises me.


Wow, it's like I'm really on the BioWare Social Network!

We're starting to get close to time for this thing to go gold. Anyone nervous yet?


About stumbling upon spoilers? Pants shittingly so.

I was going more for the it not going gold on schedule and release being slipped. I have a vested interest in 3/6 because I have a baby due 4/3

ME3 not hitting its target 3/6 date would shock me. Honestly, it slipping into the following week for my spring break would thrill me, but that just isn't going to happen. :cry:

I hear he has a Jennifer Hale poster down there that he uses as a dartboard. And a Tali poster that he uses... well, nevermind.

I think it's more Tali blow-up doll than poster, as a poster can only do so much.... :D

What was the reason for the Hale hate?

He believe it's Sheploo/maleShep or death in ME2.

Probably something deep-rooted. Female Shepard killed his father maybe?

She was a bitch my playthrough, so it is possible.

ME3 not hitting its target 3/6 date would shock me. Honestly, it slipping into the following week for my spring break would thrill me, but that just isn't going to happen. :cry:

Nope. They let it go from Q4 2011 to Q1 2012, so it's not going anywhere.

Oh snap. Guess Chobot's character hits for both teams then. Like good old Kelly.

This just seems like they are catering to the lowest common denominator. I know I am taking it way to seriously, but I really don't need her in my space opera video game. Mass Effect is a groundbreaking series with real consequences to your actions(with results possibly years after you made them. To trivialize any of my possible interactions with a "wink wink" cameo could really pull me out of the moment.

Any other game and I wouldn't care - but don't Fuck with my Mass Effect!

Tha Xecutioner

Posted 01 February 2012 - 10:32 PM

I'm sure Tha X can spare you some bunker space from now until the 14th, and then from the 14th onwards. :D

There's always room, except for Hale fans.

I hear he has a Jennifer Hale poster down there that he uses as a dartboard. And a Tali poster that he uses... well, nevermind.

Actually, I swapped the Hale poster out for a shot of Miranda's ass (and, of course, bought special darts for the new board that are all in the shape of a pe...nevermind). I'm currently using the Hale pics as urinal cakes.

What was the reason for the Hale hate?

Unearned praise for two straight mediocre performances, exaggerated comparisons between her and Meer (in addition to unfair ridicule of Meer's performances), and recent overexposure of her and femShep.

Probably something deep-rooted. Female Shepard killed his father maybe?

Yep, she bored him to death.

Chobot tells G4 that...

This should be in spoiler tags.

I think it's more Tali blow-up doll than poster, as a poster can only do so much.... :D

No one ever goes for the "Here, take off this space suit real seductively and start acting sick while I stare at you with this rape face" request; so it's going to be me and the doll for a while.

He believe it's Sheploo/maleShep or death in ME2.

FemShep and customized Shepards don't exist.

That one does seem like pandering and could be nothing more than FUD to try and make Chobot's character seem more important than she is. From the clip we see of her, she looks like the ship's aerobics instructor more than anything else. Hard to think she's not more than that, which again, comes from a 2 second blip of her character.

And here we go....

There's always room, except for Hale fans.

I guess that's why you welcome me in and then kick me out of the bunker. :D

Actually, I swapped the Hale poster out for a shot of Miranda's ass (and, of course, bought special darts for the new board that are all in the shape of a pe...nevermind). I'm currently using the Hale pics as urinal cakes.

Harsh, on more than one level. I mean, what did Miranda's ass do to you, anyway? Or more likely, what didn't it to for you?

Unearned praise for two straight mediocre performances, exaggerated comparisons between her and Meer (in addition to unfair ridicule of Meer's performances), and recent overexposure of her and femShep.

I know we agree to disagree on that point, so we're moving on.....

Yep, she bored him to death.

:cold: Wow, that's cold and harsh, all rolled together.

This should be in spoiler tags.

Will fix in a moment.

No one ever goes for the "Here, take off this space suit real seductively and start acting sick while I stare at you with this rape face" request; so it's going to be me and the doll for a while.

Do remember that eventually, even the doll needs some time to rest and have a smoke.

FemShep and customized Shepards don't exist in Tha X ME3 spoiler-proof bunker, anything else is your own delusion.

Fix'd.

Looks like the facebook edition of the Galaxy at War game has begun (disturbingly quietly). Go here for more info: http://t.co/ZQES2YYZ

I don't quite get it, but I signed up and tried to recruit some friends. Maybe it'll make more sense with mission 2. What really rubs me the wrong way is that you can get the Normandy avatar prop as a prize. This is now the 2nd time you can get it without getting the LE. It bothers me because why the hell spend all the money on the LE if they'll give away unique pieces of it via other media? I mean, yes, I got the prop for way too much via ebay back in May...but still. I don't know why that bugs me so much.

Because it's taking away from the exclusiveness of a special edition.

Del Ray Publishing and BioWare's official comment on Deception:

Mass Effect fans have been asking for a comment on recent concerns over Mass Effect: Deception. We have been listening and have the below response on the issue.

The teams at Del Rey and BioWare would like to extend our sincerest apologies to the Mass Effect fans for any errors and oversights made in the recent novel Mass Effect: Deception. We are currently working on a number of changes that will appear in future editions of the novel.

We would like to thank all Mass Effect fans for their passion and dedication to this ever-growing world, and assure them that we are listening and taking this matter very seriously.


I've read through the prologue and the first chapter, and it's... not very good so far. I've already noticed a handful of errors and inaccuracies, and I've barely made a dent in the book. If this "revised" edition ever sees the light of day, I imagine it would have to be close to a complete rewrite.

I guess Del Rey decided to retcon the entire book and start over from scratch?

I'm sure they were getting flaming email after email about how things were pretty broken and I'm sure it hit some critical point with their marketing department.

I wonder if they'll give "2nd edition without the fuckups" version to everyone for free who bought it the first time?

EDIT: In other news, this seems a bit weird:

Here is how they can fix Deception. Get Dietz off the book and Karpyshyn back on and actually give Karpyshyn more than like 4-6 months to write the book. As much as I love Mass Effect. I want more than 300 pages for 8 bucks.

How many are getting the CE? Wow at ME1 and ME2 only being $70 (And why didn't I get the CE for 2..wasn't into ME1 at the time)..but $20 more for ME3? Still thinking about it.
