Old thread was DING DONG ROKKUDU, so I took it upon myself to make the new one. First time making a megathread so sorry if I fuck this up.[URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/50983/"] [IMG]http://img696.imageshack.us/img696/1972/bannernyo.png[/IMG][/URL] [IMG]http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/1359/s1le.png[/IMG] [URL="http://twitter.com/#%21/ME3News"][IMG]http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/9681/s1dailynews.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/323/index/7358840"][IMG]http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/440/s1stalkadev.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/323/index/7636043"][IMG]http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/117/s1cedetails.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209440/"][IMG]http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/6035/s1condensemass.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENGR436&q=can+it+wait+for+a+bit+i+am+in+the+middle+of+some+calibrations&btnG=Google+Search"] [IMG]http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/3296/s1contribute.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/27871/"][IMG]http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/9036/s1screenshot.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209441/"][IMG]http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/7311/s1video.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209762/"][IMG]http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/4162/s1otherlanguages.png[/IMG][/URL] [IMG]http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/9366/s1le2.png[/IMG] [IMG]http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/9913/s2le.png[/IMG] [URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/35955/"][IMG]http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/5765/s2story.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209442/"][IMG]http://img233.imageshack.us/img233/9623/s2rpg.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209443/"][IMG]http://img851.imageshack.us/img851/1087/s2combat.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209454/"][IMG]http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/918/s2exploration.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209445"][IMG]http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/7919/s2importsaves.png[/IMG][/URL] [URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209453/"][IMG]http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/5961/s2aesthe.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENGR436&q=can+it+wait+for+a+bit+i+am+in+the+middle+of+some+calibrations&btnG=Google+Search"][IMG]http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/3328/s2characters.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENGR436&q=can+it+wait+for+a+bit+i+am+in+the+middle+of+some+calibrations&btnG=Google+Search"][IMG]http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/3168/s2enemies.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENGR436&q=can+it+wait+for+a+bit+i+am+in+the+middle+of+some+calibrations&btnG=Google+Search"][IMG]http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/21/s2locations.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209452/"][IMG]http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/8103/s2other.png[/IMG][/URL] [IMG]http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/6395/s3le.png[/IMG] [URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209450/"][IMG]http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/9167/s3story.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209448/"][IMG]http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/9127/s3gameplay.png[/IMG][/URL][URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209447/"][IMG]http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/8885/s3aesthe.png[/IMG][/URL] [IMG]http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/7041/s3le2.png[/IMG] [URL="http://social.bioware.com/2035423/blog/209451/"][IMG]http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/16/s3rumors.png[/IMG][/URL] [IMG]http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/7058/s3le3.png[/IMG] And don't forget the rest of the instalments in the Mass Effect Universe... [IMG]http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/4756/me12b.png[/IMG] [IMG]http://img42.imageshack.us/img42/9620/me1r.png[/IMG] You take on the role of Commander Shepard onboard the SSV Normandy en route to the human colony of Eden Prime in an operation to recover a recently unearthed Prothean beacon. The crew is joined on the mission by the turian Spectre Nihlus Kryik from the Citadel's Office of Special Tactics and Reconnaissance. The mission was meant to test Shepard's suitability for the role as a Spectre, but quickly changes when the Normandy arrives at the colony to find it's under attack by an unidentified alien space craft. When your squad arrives you identify that the colony is under attack by geth forces led by a rogue turian Spectre named Saren Arterius - who kills Nihlus. When you locate the beacon it activates, imparting strange visions in Shepard’s mind before becoming inactive. After the mission is complete you return to the Citadel Council to inform them of what happened and the actions of Saren. After the Council rejects your initial accusation you start your own investigation, uncovering evidence which leads to Saren being declared a rogue Spectre. Shepard is then granted Spectre status and given command of the Normandy with orders to hunt down Saren. While doing so you unravel his plot to bring back the ancient machine race known as the Reapers. Now it is no longer just about bringing one man to justice, but also to save a galaxy from extinction...

On the fringes of known space, something is silently abducting entire human colonies. Now Shepard must work with Cerberus, a ruthless organization devoted to human survival at any cost, to stop the most terrifying threat mankind has ever faced. To even attempt this perilous mission, Shepard must assemble the galaxy's most elite team and command the most powerful ship ever built. Even then, they say it would be suicide. Commander Shepard intends to prove them wrong. Available for PC, XBOX 360 and PS3.

I never did get around to finishing the last thread's OP. :v:
:v:
Also, I've already said this before but thanks again DM for giving me the confidence to try a megathread. :unsmith: [editline]1st February 2012[/editline] What do you guys think of the name? I was going to go for something to do with the recent odd split-thread-personality-type-thing where people discussed Tali loads despite most thread regulars not particularly liking her, but felt I should have gone for the safer option.

I would have called it something like "Everyone's a Critic edition" but that might just be because I don't get the title

I wish ME series got a sale on Steam.. I'd love to play ME3 on PC now that I have a computer powerful enough, but since I have the first two on Xbox I have to get the third for that too. Shame.

[QUOTE=Gripen2;34496861]Like people will listen to that. :([/QUOTE] Leave the thread if you are so concerned of spoilers, problem solved. Griefers don't care about bans. The Portal 2 thread made this very clear.
Also thread name is hilarious [editline]1st February 2012[/editline] goddamn my automerge
[QUOTE=Terin7;34496892]Is it possible for Morinth to be unloyal? You can only get her on Samara's loyalty mission, and that counts for her, as well.[/QUOTE] You technically saved her life, I'm sure she is loyal if you kill Samara.
[QUOTE=tommo400;34496464]I thought the "ding dong bannu" thing was about the old republic?[/QUOTE] Yeah, but Bioware.

[editline]1st February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=JgcxCub;34496989]Yeah, but Bioware.[/QUOTE] A better title would be "Mass Effect Megathread: 'Virmiring' people since 2183" or something
And now I'm downloading Mass Effect at <50 kb/s. :/
[QUOTE=Creeper;34497125]And now I'm downloading Mass Effect at <50 kb/s. :/[/QUOTE] I was going to say "Where the hell do you live, that's 11 times worse than our lines in Germany", but then I saw an Australian flag. Retail release was too expensive? Though there are at least 20 cities in our country with super-speed FTTH/FTTB with reasonable prices, they won't upgrade our darn city. People have 200 Mbit just a few kilometers away and 1 Gbit is planned. I only have I have 5 Mbit down and 0.55 Mbit up, but I guess I should be thankful.
[QUOTE=WeekendWarrior;34496409][t]http://mimg.ugo.com/201201/9/1/0/217019/masseffecttimeline.png[/t][/QUOTE] It would have been interesting if BioWare went as far as making any of the six team mates able to die on Virmire depending on whomever you leave with the bomb or Kirrahe. Hopefully, in Mass Effect 3, everybody and anybody is vulnerable to die by some means.
merge Edited: Small countries with low population are usually more advanced, see Norway or Arvuti below me. I hope your country doesn't monitor what you download so you can make use of it.
[QUOTE=mercurius;34497299]merge[/QUOTE] 100 mbit down Estonian master race. Imagine how fast the internet would be in mass effect, considering it would be in the entire galaxy. And imagine then ping you would get.
Perhaps the title could have been "wtf bioware why can't i virmire tali"
[QUOTE=JgcxCub;34497458]Perhaps the title could have been "wtf bioware why can't i virmire tali"[/QUOTE] That's why we have the Suicide Mission [img]http://sae.tweek.us/static/images/emoticons/emot-science.gif[/img]
[QUOTE=JgcxCub;34497458]Perhaps the title could have been "wtf bioware why can't i virmire tali"[/QUOTE] There isn't even that much tali hate, just that her fanbase sucks. Really the only character that is being hated is that news reporter and only because of how she looks like and her voice actress.
[QUOTE=Arvuti;34497328]100 mbit down Estonian master race. Imagine how fast the internet would be in mass effect, considering it would be in the entire galaxy. And imagine then ping you would get.[/QUOTE] Considering how most interstellar communications are instantanious, I'm fairly certain their internet has 0 ping at all times. When speaking to Legion about potential Upgrades for the Normandy 2 he will request access to the Ships information network. I can only assume that is the equivalent of the internet in Mass Effect.
[QUOTE=WeekendWarrior;34497499]That's why we have the Suicide Mission [img]http://sae.tweek.us/static/images/emoticons/emot-science.gif[/img][/QUOTE] It's just too bad that gave bioware a reason to scrap every character except tali for me3.
I think EDI said that the quantum communicator in the briefing room, connected to Tim's office, offered instantaneous communication via quantum entanglement.
I don't want this to get into another science discussion, even though in reality quantum entanglement is faster than light; information can NEVER travel faster than light. You cannot communicate through it.
