where I get to spread my DNA everywhere like Wilt Chamberlain

What exactly do you mean by "spread my DNA"?

I believe similar analogies would be something like

Doing the dirty with as many girls like John Holmes
Creating little Alexanders like Alexander the Great
Spreading the love like the Vikings....

etc...etc...etc....

I think that's along the lines he was speaking...I would imagine that paints an even broader picture...if not...

well...It's too graphic to really get into here...talk to someone about the birds and the bees...might help understand it a little...

Ok, just to be clear that we're on the same page.
Also, I'm not sure that "spreading the love like vikings" qualifies.

I thought they plundered the women and raped the land.

As long as they remembered to pillage and then burn...

Or as the Pirate King is fond of saying the "the ships go down and the women yield.. or is that the other way around?"

That was my positive view of the situation back then, and it was nice that the extended cut simply fleshed it out.

It still sucks to be EDI though, as she is "tied" to the Normandy and presumably can't leave it (she said something to the effect of her borrowed body had to stay within a certain range of her core on the ship). Joker might start building a tent to live out the rest of his life in.

This being space fantasy, they can of course put the Normandy back together and fly off towards the setting sun (I seem to remember seeing that in one of the youtube videos) :p

That's what I got in my ending. Of course, EDI wasn't exactly around for it... :p

One of these days I'm going to attempt a speed-run, with a newly created character for ME3 (no imported character), just for the giggles.

Heh, watched my cousin's son (around 16) play some ME3 and DA2 the other day, I was in near-physical agony with his total lack of min-maxing. :p

I don't know what min-maxing means. :(

Basically maximizing certain specific stats or whatever in favor of others. So basically making something very specialized, compared to an all around character.

Noot so much, more a question of of focusing your character build so that it excels in the role you envision for it and dump all the stats/abilities that don't support it. I mean, that's the way CRPGs are played, in general. :p

I don't have it, so I don't know all it entails, but I've gathered enough info to be informative. I'll send you a PM.

Played it last night when my connection was too finicky for swtor... Was pretty good, positively surprised. There's several "investigation" sequences that are actually pretty good (unlike the ones in the main game). Story is really good on it's own, gives you some more background info for your Final Choice (there were some rumors pre-release that it might actually change the ending with more dialogue or something, but I CBA to play that far for now) and addresses some stuff that has seemed a bit random before. Mechanically the combat sections are quite boring, but they recycle ideas from the MP that add a bit of spice to it. Too bad said MP has kind of given me my share of cannibals, husks etc. All NPCs have new VO work, probably mostly thanks to the EC, but it still makes a big difference for the better.

Subjectively not as good as Shadow Broker, objectively possibly better.
