Mass Effect 2

I wish ME2 would have as much sex as GTA4: Ballad of gay Tony. Its like playing a HBO series. AND they managed to sneak it utterly and completely under the radar of the morality mafia.

A word from real life. Relationships don't 'flow naturally'. At least mine don't. They ****ing defy gravity and make 30g turns.
IMO relationships are one of those things that never ever should be portrayed realistically in a video game. Except maybe sim games.

Yeah, I totally agree. Otherwise you'd spend 6 months on a game only to have it abruptly end with an excuse you could've beaten given 5 minutes, a hamster and a bottle of vodka.


You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

What I meant was they shouldn't be a quest that abruptly ends when you get laid.

Yeah, and it's a very valid point. Even the BG 2 romances were guilty of that, to a degree (but were saved by ToB in that matter, and Viconia deviating from the norm). I think DAO handled this a bit better.

 

Btw. I'm just having a rough patch with the future mrs. Nepenthe. :)

Imagine getting an SMS from the Normandy while you're on the way to the Big Bad. "I don't love you anymore, let's break up." *Honey-bunny has blocked your number* Shepard breaks down crying, the Big Bad eats him and the universe is destroyed. :)

Yeah! We want corny love-talk in plot conversations till the end of the game!

You just described my relationships. Maybe they are on to something after all. :)

Like I said Oner, there's a world of difference between doing it, and doing it right.

Or ME LI: 'You make me feel unlike anyone has made me feel before... But since we must save the universe, I just don't think we have the time for a proper relationship... and I respect you too much to just take advantage of you!"

 

Shepard: '****'

 

 

edit: yeah, that last one was incomprehensible, wasn't it

Annah romance is overrated.

 

FFG romance is nonexistent.

 

Deionarra romance is the best unilateral romance of all time.

I think sexual subplots are unnecessary.

Paragon, because Renegade looks like that.

I meant the manic smile.

Word, bro. And more relationship drama:

 

SOVEREIGN: Your extinction is inevitable, we are the end of your existance.

SHEPARD: But why are you doing this?

SOVEREIGN: We exist in a realm of existance so far beyond your own you can not possibly understand.

SHEPARD: Ok, I dig your scary speech an imma let you finish, but seriously... why?

SOVEREIGN: We... get lonely. Dark space can get very quiet and even though we are each a nation of our own, we run out of things to talk about.

SHEPARD: That doesnt really answer why you have to eradicate all intelligent life in the galaxy?

SOVEREIGN: That isnt really our intention, we just have very deep seated commitment issues. We try to be nice, yet organic life always fails to meet our impossibly high expectations. So we get a bit cranky.

SHEPARD: So you kill us all?

SOVEREIGN: Yes, to a reaper, that is the equivalent of removing you from our friends list on facebook.

SHEPARD: Couldnt we talk about this? Maybe try couples therapy this time around?

SOVEREIGN: No, that is too expensive. Total eradication is a cheaper solution.

SHEPARD: God, you're impossible!

SOVEREIGN: Its not you, it is us.

I hear the 'Fighting in Tunnels' mod one of the forumites is working on has a great deal of 'tunnel' exploration. :p

I think "blockbuster" here is in the sense of style over substance, e.g. big explosions and car chases instead of a plot in a Hollywood movie.

"Yes and that's my major gripe with them, because that was not my impression of them and their goals after playing through the Baldurs Gate series."

 

BIO always intended to go for blockbusters.

 

 

 

"I'm a sucker for unflinching dedication to either giving something fresh each time (eg. Troika)"

 

Nope. Doesn't describe Troika at all. I enjoyed ARC and BL just fine and even TOEE had some good things but none of them were 'fresh' or 'original'.

Arcanum was one of the very few steampunk RPG's if not the only one worth noting. Bloodlines is the only Vampire themed RPG worth anything, and one of only two at that. TOEE was the most generic of the lot, but it was well made in many parts.

 

Seriously, take your dried frog pills for the day.

"Fresh" is only a plus if it's combined with "good." Troika might have been 2-for-3 on "fresh," but they were 1-for-3 on "good." (And 0-for-3 on "relatively bug-free.")

 

 

To bring us back to the ME2 topic, from what I've seen of the hype-making videos, the Salarian dude is the only NPC that has really interested me for non-mammory-related reasons. Hopefully, some of the others will surprise.

Stop being such a Troika fanboy. Seriously, none of those are original.

 

 

"but it was well made in many parts."

 

It was crap. Only thing made well about TOEE was the character system which they copy pasted from pnp. Heck, they couldn't even do a pre made module right. LMAO

 

ARC + BL are good games but are not original. Deal with it
