Yep. Volus were so adorable.

The adorable Volus was the one in the merc base on Illium. The one with the line "I am a biotic god!"

Hypersonic boobs?

I wouldn't go so far as to say EVERY question of morality is solved by a simple question. But the concept of good and evil is an easy one.

That might be part of why I was able to look past the bad parts.
I have made the argument that the ecchi wad in the series to keep it from being too horrifically dark. There are all sorts of biting commentary throughout the series, if it was just zombies and that the series would have been unwatchable.

The comedic moments do more good here than the ecchi. Take the sexism out (not hard to do) by having them each rescue each other rather than the girls rescued by the boy. And replace the fanservice moments with more comedic ones and the show would have won my highest praise.

removing the fanservice means Freehold no watch.

Really? UC Gundam has no fanservice for the most part.

that's what the dojinshi are for!

If you removed the fan service from High School of the Dead there would still be dojinshi made for it. Frighteningly they probably have dojinshi for ALL anime and manga.

Just make a d3.

I bought some dice with removable faces. Take a d6 and number it 1 to 3 twice.

dice...with removable faces?!?!

Yeah I got them at Gen Con one year. The faces are printed on little disks that can be plugged into the die. You need a d6 numbered from 2 to 7 no problem just pop out the 1 and replace it with a 7.

The best compromise I have seen so far is the ability to have your friends drop into your game NOT as a new player but as an NPC depriving them of story choices while letting them fight by your side in the boots of a character who isn't going to vanish when your friend heads off to Florida. BUT that isn't hugely rewarding for your friend and so it isn't a feature likely to generate interest all on its own.
No, we don't all want it. At all. I don't want to play a video game with other people any more than I want someone reading over my shoulder when I read a book. It's an individual activity and I don't have any desire for it to be a group activity, in principle or in practice.

Sorry, I am a LAN party geek. That will color my perspective a bit.

Heck you could even leave a little bit of the ecchi in the show tastefully done and it would have been fine. But you can't say scenes like the hypersonic boobs did anything good for the show.

Meh; BL and BL2 just seemed like a basic FPS with a little bit of Diablo injected into it. FPS is so frat-boy, and Diablo is my least favorite RPG series.
I hate fps myself, but something about the series really called to me.

But... Mass Effect is FPS. How can anyone not like Mass Effect?


I also love Shonen action heroes. The over the top action is fun... it reminds me of why I like JJ Abrams movies.

Harems ... I don't automatically dislike them I mean playing up the angle of many girls chasing one boy IS high school level realistic. But please don't take those into creepy or sexual directions, I am NOT a fan of hentai.

I like to think I'm good... But everyone thinks they are good. Even horrible people.

So I'm guessing I'm probably Neutral... Like 90% of human population.

It isn't so hard to figure out.

If someone was in trouble but you were on your way to a job interview, would you stop and help them anyway even if it's likely to cost you the job? If yes then you are good.

I don't think there's any one single question that can pinpoint your "alignment". Certainly not one as vague as the one presented.

What kind of trouble is that person in? Why is she in that trouble? Can I actually help them? Could I make things worse? Am I unemployed or just looking for higher pay? Do I have any other sources of income? Do I have a family to support?

Life is not black and white.

Yep your Neutral. That is a classic neutral response.

Implicit in the question is the assumption that you can help.
But your other response questions boil down to: Does she really need help and just how much is this going to cost me. Or in other words can I justify to myself NOT helping. If I can justify doing so via one of the many means for such justification then awesome I can just hurry past and pretend not to notice.

The Good and Evil responses would include very different questions.

I can help you with some depression advice.

Keep a close friend who can check in on you at regular intervals. Someone who will recognize your depression and can pick you up and take you out to do something they know you will enjoy. Because DOING something is the fastest route through depression, and if you have had severe moments were you couldn't even watch TV then that friend is a lifeline.

This is why I used both "gifts" and "kills" because in inquisition it was kills instead of gifts. For example if I wished to get in good with Blackwall but was busy treating him like a jerk I could go farm dark spawn until his approval was good again.


7 people marked this as a favorite.

Oh no... I hope they DON'T add the insane approval/disapproval system from Dragon Age. YUCK. Far better to leave the mission based approval system from Mass Effect. Nothing breaks suspension of disbelief faster than an approval system based on numbers... Sure I did everything he hates in the game but he loves me because I bought him some gifts and killed 300 dark spawn...

D-... dang it.

I HAD STUFF TO DO. >:I

WELP. IT'S 3:50 AM. THANKS, ARANNA. >:I

That was so coooooool~! :D

Your welcome.

I thought it was cute too.

I wanted to ask: in episode two, something... hm, significant happens. In episode three, it's referenced in an important way, and in episode four, they say a phrase about it.

(It also influences an important event in episode five.)

SO~! Here's the question: does anyone, on the entire internet know what they said in episode four?

I've listened to it... a lot... but I can't really understand it at all (due to one of the players kind of talking over the others).

It's been bugging me non-stop, soooo... I figured I'd ask.

"What is dead..." the rest is impossible to make out because they talk over each other and shift the camera so you can't even try to read lips.

I didn't see a transcript online either. So it remains a mystery.

But count me in the "I love Giblets" crowd.

I had issues getting my wireless router to play nice with Win 10. And after a long period where computers would just drop offline with no ability to reconnect I finally got the right settings and updates to make it work... UNLESS... unless someone comes anywhere near my router with certain models of cell phone after which my router goes absolutely crazy and I have to wait till that person leaves and then reset all my settings before it will talk to Windows again.

Go to Shell.

Use Shell gift card.
It doesn't work; it tells me to talk to attendant.
Wait in line to see attendant.
Fifteen minutes later, attendant shows up.
ATTENDANT CANNOT HELP ME WITH CARD*.

Words of Wisdom: don't use a gift card to pay at the pump. When you pay at the pump the system places a hold against the card equal to the maximum amount that store expects to be charged, before you pump a single drop. If the maximum amount they try to place a hold on is more than the card is worth you get the default message "see the attendant for help" which isn't helpful if the attendant is just some kid who really has no answers.

Just had a bad queue experience. Burger joint, two cashiers, people standing in one lump between them. Two lines form, and a group of three girls around ten or so split up between the lines to join whoever gets there first. Obviously so. I ask them which line they stand in. They get there right then, of course, and I have to wait for ages despite being right behind them.

I am not violent.

But... drawn and quartered comes to my mind. Graaaaagh!!!

It didn't matter how many lines there were, the food orders get sent back to the kitchen in a single list with priority given to drive thru orders. If there was a large group ahead of you your best option would have been to leave and try the drive thru instead.

I have never done a MOO2 lan party, but it is one of my most played games in my library.

It is a testimony to how good MoO2 was that people were willing to LAN party on a game that was buggy and used an obsolete networking protocol.

*sigh* GOG and Steam teamed up on me...

Shadowground on Steam (the promotional price was so much lower than on GoG that it easily off-set the Steam's stupid insistence on me paying in Euros, urgh) and Sword of Stars on GOG...

Should have checked the list first. :P

SotS is the best space 4X I've ever played. I love it so.

SotS is the second best one in my opinion... MoO2 being the best.

I love that you can build races that play very differently in MoO2.
SotS races DO play differently but everything is pre set whether I like it or not. However SotS has the best combat system to date of any 4x game especially if you include the mods. Well SotS 1 does SotS 2 was a royal mess that destroyed the company it was so bad.

I have a question; Will you guys be doing a developers Blog? So we can follow along with the state of the game as you guys finish it?


If by clean you mean legal to drive but with no attachments to you than no it isn't possible.

The BEST you can do is a false set of out of state temporary numbers... which might be enough to keep the cop from running your plate randomly.

As to buying it just buy it out of state (preferably a different state than your fake license numbers) from a private seller using cash while wearing a disguise (a nondescript one).

Nondescript disguise? You know, use a temporary hair dye to make your hair a different but normal looking color. Get color contacts to change your eye color. Wear a different hair style than normal. Buy very real looking fake glasses. Change your clothing to something poor class and different than something you would normally wear. If you are a boy then shave your face (if you normally have a beard) or get a beard. Also fake identifying marks such as beauty marks or tattoos are a good choice.

I'm not sure if you really want to have ME 1-3 in your mind when playing Andromeda(and not just because I didn't like 3 much) .-.

Like, whole point of dropping number in title is in order it to be "new" thing without Shepard and ties to old trilogy. So reminding yourself of the old one is basically prepping yourself so you will compare Andromeda to 1-3 all the time.

Nonsense.

None of us will be expecting a continuation of Shepard's story. We have all read the latest tidbits about the new title. And it IS going to get compared to the three previous titles whether we play them or not. And this isn't going to color any expectations beyond the expectations of the type of interactions we can expect with the story that all the games are famous for. Because game play changes from 1 to 2 and from 2 to 3 so that part sets no expectations. So we aren't doing ourselves any harm by playing the trilogy first. We are immersing ourselves in the lore of the franchise however and that WILL be good. I fully expect that lore won't change just because they are exploring a new place.
