Bioware is being accused of using a lot of fan-made and stock images for certain screens in the game.

The spoiler involves Tali.

SPOILER: show
Someone managed to find the stock Getty Images of what was used for the unmasked Tali.

SPOILER: show



I think the trailer or intro to the game also has images that were blatantly taken from stock images and fan art.

One annoying thing, my multiplayer characters from the demo didn't transfer over. Going to have to rebuild my level 20 engineer now, yaaay.

Is there a comic that explains what happened between ME2 and ME3? I kind of figured Shep would have just kept his ship and went around preparing for the coming war.

SPOILER: show
I had figured that Illusive man would have the same motivation this game and the whole problem would be that he'd go too far in protecting humanity. Didn't think he'd turn into such an obvious villain bent on galactic domination.

No comic and the only reason it was done for ME 2 was because of ME 2 debuting on the PS3 and Microsoft owning the rights to the first game.

Only reason the comic was made for the Xbox 360 was to generate some extra money as a DLC piece and try to bring in new Xbox 360 owners to the series if they didn't play ME1 or didn't want to have to spend 20+ hours to finish the first game just to have stats carry over to ME 2.

I meant like a paper comic. I just want to know how Shep went from where he was at the end of ME2 to now.

Oh in that case, yes there is one coming up although don't know the date.

Just checked and its supposed to come on April 4 and is called Mass Effect: Homeworlds.

ME: Invasion was the previous one that was a 4-part series and ended on January.

Even if you do et caught, just a simple resume and you're in that syste.

I do like that the Reapers are nice enough to wait for you to scan a planet and just wait inches away from you.

I am hoping I can hit the right parts for the stuff with Tali and the geth.

Otherwise I will go back to through all three games.

Also need to play some more multiplayer, really enjoying it. However, not fairing so hot by myself. Tend to get flanked a lot.

Getting this for Xbox 360 tomorrow! I've read about the importing glitch. Can I still import all of my decisions from the first 2 games? I don't mind rebuilding my Shepard's looks because I pretty much remember where all the sliders go.

Decisions mostly seem to be fine apart from some of mine from ME1 don't seem to have carried over. Not seen much else from anyone else apart from appearance.

So based on my playthrough of the demo I figured my first playthrough was gonna be the action one.

Do you still make choices on that one? or is it a set path on your decisions from the other 2 games.

The whole game the Illusive Man is painted as an evil bastard that wants to control the Reapers. That's the paragon choice at the end!? That makes no fucking sense.

I'm honestly okay with the endings. I know a lot of people are upset but the only other direction it really goes is everyone holding hands and singing praises of victory at the end. And I think that would be pretty shitty and cliche. I give Bioware credit for at least trying to break standard convention.

It's in the options.


Was it ever mentioned in previous ME games why all the aliens speak English (or whatever language the game is set to)? I feel like I remember learning about it in a codex entry but I'm not sure.

Yeah I think it says in a codex. Some sort of instant translator built into their omnitools or something.

Spoiler tags just in case someone (FA) hasn't played the games to that point

I assume the tech is Reaper technology so that the civilizations could get to a point where the Reapers could justify coming back and harvesting them

Was it ever mentioned in previous ME games why all the aliens speak English (or whatever language the game is set to)? I feel like I remember learning about it in a codex entry but I'm not sure.
I just assumed universal translators ala Star Trek.

Spoiler tags just in case someone (FA) hasn't played the games to that point

I assume the tech is Reaper technology so that the civilizations could get to a point where the Reapers could justify coming back and harvesting them
That might be true.
SPOILER: show
The Prothean in the DLC had to touch Shepard to understand the language. They could share knowledge with each other just by touch as he explained it.


So I dunno.

All the aliens use translators. It's mentioned in the codex, it's also mentioned in the Shadow Broker DLC on Tali's profile.

Did they come up with something better than mining for resources in this one?

You still scan planets but it's a more stream lined process. Basically you fly the Normandy through a system and ping. Once your scans pick something up you fly to it, scan once, and retrieve the item. It's either a quest item, intel (which is used via a terminal on the Normandy for upgrades), or credits. It's a much better system. The system in ME2 was unnecessarily mundane.

So finally got to the one mission we were talking about:

SPOILER: show
where Mordin dies. I wonder if I had lied to him if he'd have survived or just given up his life for nothing. Or what if I hadn't saved the genophage from the last game? Very curious. Also, are the Rachni in the game for people who didn't save them in ME1?

The genophage thing would happen anyway, not sure about Mordin if you lie to him.

I just want to know what in the hell happens if Mordin or any other key characters died at the end of ME2. I need to see this as well.

Rachni are still in the game as my stupid save says I killed them when I didn't. They just keep running around saying "BUT YOU KILLED THE LAST ONE SHEPARD!!!"

I don't know if I would rather see that or Elcors performing Shakespeare.

Speaking of which, haven't seen one Elcor yet

The Rachni are in the game. But if you save the queen again, you only get drones for working on the Crucible.

Not to spoil anything, but the DLC from ME2 has been paying off for me in dividends. Glad I bought it all.
