There is a reaper that is destroying all the ships attacking it. Any sort strategy that isn’t focused on destroying it could mean dooming the galaxy. Shepard sacrificing the alliance fleets to help the destiny ascension escape has him put the lives of three politicians above the lives of the entire galaxy. And it’s supposed to be a paragon option. Saving a few of elites is the good boy option. So dumb. The choices in mass effect make nonsense. Just like curing the genocide all because you care about making your friend happy rather than making sure the galaxy wont be engaged in a war to stop the krogan after the reapers are dealt with.

shepard talking the reapers down like bruce boxleitner did would unironically have been a better ending than what we got. especially considering that ME made the reapers seem even further beyond the races of the cycle than the shadows were to the young races in b5.

ME showed a single reaper shrugging off the combined firepower of a whole fleet and only losing because shepard killing saren lowered sovereign's shields or something retarded like that. while b5 showed the narniggers being able to damage shadow vessels even in an ambush while completely outmatched. a much wiser approach to storytelling. but i guess bioware couldn't stand it that something might happen in the game which wasn't due to the efforts of their special snowflake mc

>only losing because shepard killing saren lowered sovereign's shields
An assumption by some players that makes no sense at all and is not supported by anything. Sovereign dies because it was overwhelmed by all the firepower brought to bare against it. Vigil tells you that Sovereign is not invulnerable and could not survive the full might of the Council fleet. That's why it needed the geth. The game ends when you kill its Saren avatar because there is no more game play after that and it is the most cinematic point to end the narrative.

One thing that ME2 did get right was in having technology advance by studying Sovereign's wreckage. So it follows that in the future the odds would not be stacked as badly.

supported by how the scenes at the end were "directed" by bioware.

>The game ends when you kill its Saren avatar because there is no more game play after that and it is the most cinematic point to end the narrative
that's very logical and all but i think it's giving bioware too much credit.
for what it's worth, i'm just shitting on bioware for the fun of it. i use the same headcanon as you to rationalize bioware's retardation, but i really do believe mass effect's ending scene is an example of poor writing and the desire to have the mc be responsible for everything important that happens. rewatching the scene now, i even see they couldn't stop themselves from making it so the normandy gets the final killshot kek. i'd forgotten about that.

forgot to say this i agree with as well. the thanix cannon tech helps me cope too but same as with thermal clips, it's just not very likely that it was adopted by everyone everywhere within the timeframe.

Being under the age of 18 must be horrible these days, especially for taste building in games.

So much evidence led us to believe it was. I read some anon on here say indoctrination theory was true and that bioware meant to leave it open to interpretation to drive discussion of the game. I wonder if that anon is still posting on this board. He seemed very knowledgeable on mass effect.

>some sort of evidence or admission from the original staff
In the distant past, seething "reverse contrarians" would demand in swarms on the Bioware Forums that any threads discussing Indoctrination Theory must be transfered over to the fan fiction section. Occasionally when this happened, lead Bioware staff members (such as Casey Hudson) would sometimes enter the thread to bluntly state:

>"No. Indoctrination Theory still remains a valid interpretation of Mass Effect 3's ending, which neither stands as officially confirmed canon nor as officially denied as canon at this current point. So this thread will Not be moved to the fan fiction setting. Good day."

It's honestly hilarious how the "bad guys" in this game are just the good guys but working for the bad guys. It's the equivalent of drawing a silly moustache on Superman and having Batman fight him.

Yes, people irl between ages 10 and 50 often comment that I seem to look and act like a video game character. When they ask me why that is I'm not really sure what to tell them

This, thanks

>I'd like to team up with this party animal and share war stories
Maybe I'd be down if there was some /vrpg/ meetup on the US East Coast in the future but maybe not, idk, as I work pretty hard at keeping off the grid. Alternatively my lawyer is begging to drag me to Comicon (whatever the fuck that even is? Like Wtf even is Comicon?) so maybe lurk there and keep and eye out for me, if you see me, you'll know, I kind of stand out

I recently finished this game and wanted to talk about it. I thought the combo system was neat, and everyone sharing a single mana pool for casting adds a nice amount of depth to the combat. I also really like the way gems and OOParts allow for a wide variety of builds.
Anyway, what's your favorite route and why? For me it's Janice's because of the epic battle against the Self-Eaters at the end. God bless those brave meatshield decoys.

The major is Nat x Lavie, the side characters are Vio x Prim.
The others aren't there. They're close but it's not the same - easy for a fanfic writer to make them into a romantic couple if they wanted to, but it would still be fanfic.

You play as Prim in every single route. The whole game takes place in her coma. All the girls are dolls, why do you think she gives you a Vio doll? What's more believable, the events of Hat World or a girl having a long dream in a coma?
That's what I thought.

> bouncing from pointlessly bitchy and childish to aloof and distant
Yeah I noticed it too. "Bitchy" is a pretty accurate way to describe her.
I think that the steamworks was fine, but there should have been another area in which she opens up a bit more. Like, when Starlo comes to tell the party that ceroba is up to something, she should have picked up Clover's hand and took him to the elevator with her to run away together. Then have space for more emotional interactions.
>On Pacifist the whole place focuses on her and her murderous husband
This too btw.
We basically learn
>Chujin was not particularly competent amongst the royal scientist
Yet Ceroba acts like completing his work is the most important thing ever.
>Chujin murdered a kid
Nobody seems to give a shit. And it turns out the kid didn't even kill a monster.
Ceroba murdered her own child lmao
Yet despite all of that, she's mad at Clover.
The pacifist fight against her doesn't make her look like she's doing something she doesn't want to, like Asgore in OG Undertale. She's really angry for some reason.
I don't understand why they didn't give her a single redeeming point.

Now, hold on. I'm mostly in agreement with the other stuff but that's one thing they got right. She starts crying like a baby in that fight. That's why she has to put on the mask.

Here's a timestamp if you don't believe me
>>
>>3464832
Mmmm I don't see it.
She only starts crying *after* you finally defeat her and break her mask. And she's crying because she failed to fulfill her husband's goal and save her child. She doesn't give a shit about Clover.
She explicitly wants you to die during the initial phase of the fight.
It is very different from Asgore, who can't even look at you because he's ashamed of what he's doing. I find it funny that in UY they try to present Asgore as this stern guy when he's clearly much more tormented by the idea of having to murder children (even if it is to save his people) than Chujin or Ceroba are.

I've been playing for at least 10 minutes or less, killed everyone in the first town after skipping the tutorial (after killing the geckos), heck, I even added a Dagoth Ur mod but I don't know how to find the 1488 trading post to recruit him. But the game simply isn't fun. What am I doing wrong?
Like, I understand the premise behind the game, it's supposed to be a shooter rpg. Or fps first, rpg second but I'm not feeling the rpg part. It's just so weird to me, that's all. I can't seem to understand where all this praise is coming from. It's fucking weird, man. And I enjoyed Morrowind as well as fallout 1 and 2. And my friends told me NV is a combination of all of those.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to shit on the game. I'm just trying to have a genuine discussion here. Especially since the Fallout TV show popularized the franchise. It's just weird. Please, someone explain to me what am I supposed to do to have fun in this game?

It eventually led to Brad being forced to rape Lisa. Buzzo is also a complete nutcase, and projects his failure to protect Lisa onto Brad, since he’s incapable of taking accountability for his part in her suicide.
