omni tool universal translator
[QUOTE=mac338;35697938]What was the explanation for everyone speaking English again?[/QUOTE] Omni-tools have an auto-translator built in.
Bit of a cheap explanation but eh, better then having to read subtitles I guess. So what about creatures that don't have omni-tools - let's say a hanar or a poor vorcha - how do they understand Shepard?
Universal translators. [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] Holy shit ninjas

[QUOTE=Arvuti;35697134]some more good stuff from deviantart [img]http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/114/8/1/ty_and_kaiden_by_kkr01-d4xfns5.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] Who the fuck taught this person anatomy. Deviantart is a breeding ground for terrible art practices.
I loved Freespace 2 because it had aliens speaking their own language with a unique sound and rhythm which then got dubbed over by a rough machine translation, made the game much more immersive than english spoken with an alien 'accent'.
[QUOTE=BreenIsALie;35698101]Space Magic and Mass Effect fields On a more serious note, Implants perhaps[/QUOTE] I don't even they've thought of an explanation for that, but I'm ok with that.
They have a trade language (i think).
[QUOTE=BreenIsALie;35698101]Space Magic and Mass Effect fields On a more serious note, Implants perhaps[/QUOTE] I think the hanar have implants since they can't even produce audible speech without them. Vorcha are just Vorcha, they don't adapt modern technology for fear of tricks.
Omni tools are like they equivalent of the telephone in ME. They are computers, flashlights, cameras, translators, swords for some reason, and whatever else you want a holographic arm computer to be. I mean telephone as in if you don't have one then you probably aren't encountering many aliens/ cant count to 9.

I shelled out £60 for the collector's edition and this blatant rubbish even has EA's shitgoblin logo stamped on it. It's like someone over there hates me. And this happens the same day Origin disappears from my list of Steam shortcuts.

Holy dicks I'm late
[QUOTE=JeanLuc761;35699286]I'm confused. Why would an EA game NOT have the EA logo on it?[/QUOTE] I'm pretty sure he was talking about the second image that seems to sometimes not load. The one where it says he didn't buy the game when Origin clearly says he did.
[QUOTE=JeanLuc761;35699286]I'm confused. Why would an EA game NOT have the EA logo on it?[/QUOTE] That's not the point. For your benefit: Picture 1: I own the N7 Collector's Edition of Mass Effect 3. Picture 2: EA disagrees and thinks I'm either a new purchaser or that I didn't buy Mass Effect 3 at all despite the fact that I launched it from Origin as I have done since it came out in March. This is just more bullshit I've had to put up with from EA on top of constantly losing connection to servers or not being able to join them at all.
Does anyone have noticed the Pillar of Autumn making a brief appearance in the background during Mass Effect 2 suicide mission?
Well we're mining asteroids by 2020 so we're on track to mine Charon. :v:

Gotta love game devs making easter eggs of other games
Just looks like a smudge, But yeah, i could see that being Pillar of Autumn [B]Hold the fucking phone[/B] The Forunners were early Protheans and the Flood was a bioweapon created by The Reapers (Flood are mentioned to be from outside the galaxy in one of the novels, i know this shit) Halo and the other installations were prototype Crucibles or using the same tech Javik said that the galaxy was united under a strong Prothean rule in his cycle Several spicies united in a civilization = Covenant Grunt = Volus Engineer = Hanar Elite = Turian [B][U][I]MY GOD[/I][/U][/B]
Parts of Mass Effect were inspired by Halo, yes, but engineers actually inspired the keepers and not Hanar. Don't know 'bout the others, but the Forerunners and the Protheans have p. much identical architecture. Elder races is however a fiction stereotype.
Y inspired by B is nothing new, hell, half the design of Halo CE were near-carbon copy of Aliens.
I just never made the connection before. Don't know why. I already know way to much about both series
Isn't Mass Effect 1 filled to the brim with Halo references though?
I wonder if it was just a sprite or could it be possible to dig up the PoA's model from ME2's code. [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=certified;35699788]Isn't Mass Effect 1 filled to the brim with Halo references though?[/QUOTE] Do tell
[QUOTE=smeismastger;35699803]I wonder if it was just a sprite or could it be possible to dig up the PoA's model from ME2's code.[/QUOTE] But isn't that section prerendered though, So there would be no need to have it in the actual released game
Ok EA, what the shit. Unable to authorize listed DLC: From Ashes; so I can't play. AAARGH.

It makes my saves unusable so I'm kind of pissed right now.
