Damned you beat me.
I can get behind that.
Guys, do you think we'll get some news on N7 day?
>Blue waifus best waifus
>Tomboy femtur waifus
lol (lots of laughs)
I will have a look
>tfw can't stand her
what a fag
"news" like in 1 wasted hour of saying nothing? then yes. actual news? no.
>liara x femshep canon pairing
you've got me confused with someone else ladm8, i don't start the liara/femshep posting i just fan the flames for a laugh sometimes
The top post on the mass effect subreddit is a guy saying how sorry he feels for Bioware, and he posts a screenshot of a twitter convo from 3 years ago about a guy complaining about the ending.
The thread itself is full of shills defending ME3.
I give up on reddit and come here but everyone's just posting porn and memes.
>everyone's just posting porn and memes.
literally failing to see the issue here
no, it's definitely different from human skin
I've got all 3 games. I've been trying to play the first one but I'm pretty just dragging through it. Is it better in the 2nd and 3rd ones? Does the story get interesting? Last I remember I saved the blue alien chick from the collapsing cave and the krogan bad guy.
>I will never caress that hard-earned abdomen
>I will never tickle her body with my tongue as I work my down to pleasure her
I thought my life to be good, /meg/. Friends, coffee, video games, and occasionally women to sex. I've never considered suicide.
Not until now.
The first one is the clunkiest and slowest gameplay-wise, 2nd and 3rd are smoother, so it gets better in that sense.
> Does the story get interesting?
Once you get to
You are not alone, I am here for you.
>a guy saying how sorry he feels for Bioware
reading through the comments made me realize how quick time flies. it's a reflection of the way bioware/ea treat their customers as much as the way the game (didn't) end. the extended dlc (not available without an internet connection) is neither here nor there. it never would have happened if so many people hadn't traded in their games and been so pissed off that they stuck a dlc screen after the credits and a rubbish 'shepard lives' with multiplayer points - which i resent for a different reason i now have to play less of the game to avoid that stupid shit so i can let shep die.
not to mention all the lies they told and then didn't apologize for. it's inexcusable they deserve all the shit they get until the end of time and anybody who disagrees can suck a dick because they didn't play it from the beginning of the series and before the extended cut. but what can you do we have to move on.
Honestly there's not a single person in all three games that would make a good president, except for maybe Shepard through power of plot speeches.
Tim and Udina might be capable but they are shown as corrupt war criminals. Even Helena Blake would've been preferable to either of them, assuming paragon resolution of her problems.
>kasumi on the normandy
so many missed opportunities
And one step closer to finding the Reapers
So now that Fallout 4 is confirmed to look much worse than both The Witcher 3 and DA3 how smug do you think the MEA devs are about them frostbite grafics right now? Do you think MEA will look even better visually than DA3?
it's the voice definitely. guy is a wannabe badass pencil pusher in me1 he only got vamped up in 2, and if you don't romance him he's calibrating all the time. if he was human he'd be on kaidans level.
aka the superior mate for those with patrician, humanity loyal tastes
>Purple because filter is purple
that shit does annoy me because it's automatically what your brain thinks. i like the idea that they're translucent and bald. definitely not this, the poor bastards are put into bubbles and suits as soon as they're born.
>Corrupt war shouldn't be president
IIRC, it's supposed to be a Cerberus assassin.
Does anyone else feel weird about the waifu/protagonist in Fallout 4 being voiced by Jack's VA? It was almost too much for me to romance the same voice in both KOTOR and in ME2&3, not sure a third time would be healthy.
thane was literally created as fanservice. he's barely even a character. although i liked him in the 3rd because he tells shep he'll defend the vs in the hospital glad i didn't send him down the vents afterall.
i always thought he should have been a c sec officer replacement for bailey.
Surely that's a ruse right? I don't know about Fallout 4 (It probably looks great but fanboys are crying because it looks "too bright and colorful" or something) but DA3 looked like shit.
I can't remember the last EA game where one could seriously say "wow those graphics blow me away"
crystal occasionally posts here, it's become less and less frequent though
>I don't know about Fallout 4
It's pretty clear you don't, it looks much worse than DAI. It's true that the Sims inspired artstyle is causing some fanboys to protest but graphically it looks awful too. Especially the distant land. It's still running on gamebryo and yet it will sell much more than both DAI and the Witcher 3 did combined.
>tfw there's not a single candidate in real life that would make a good president either
>corrupt war criminals
The whole Cerberus in ME3 and taking over the Citadel thing? The really were war criminals by our standards, but the real enemy had no rules of engagement of their own other than the systematic annihilation or assimilation of sentient interstellar species, including their own creators. TIM and Udina where always on humanity's side and enemies of the Reapers. Sure Cerberus turned completely no-ethics Nazi scientist mode in ME3, but they succeeded in both exploiting Reaper tech AND controlling Reapers forces to the point where the Reapers felt forced to track down and destroy their experimentation camp much like they tried to do with Leviathan. Imagine if they had more support or at least, Shepard never interfered. I don't think TIM and Udina would be corrupt war criminals in real-life's situation, they'd have no reason to be, but TIM sure has balls and wit.
I remember that.
I didn't care much for the trash on Omega so my edgelord Sheploo and her got really well along until she wanted to choke the nice cerberus chess playing guy and I wouldn't have it. So it ended on a bad note for me.

It's Grunt, Zaeed and Joker.
Alternatively the community gets to vote and Bluberry, Lesbian whatsherface and Garrus gets swimsuits because of the fanbase.

Doctor Underwood is very upset, you've missed several appointments and haven't had a PI in several months! Now she'll have to be extra thorough to ensure proper functionality and health.
pull her panties aside and use her wet gingey for the inspections, to ensure her patients cum numerous times and as quickly as possible, or does thoroughness mean she takes her time with long slow phenomenal handjobs?
The majority cancer fanbase.
>Or they stop being lazy pieces of shit, and they just make them for everyone.
Let's keep it slightly grounded because that's pretty far out there. Next you'll be saying they should just include all the content in the base game to begin with and that's crazytalk.
I'd like to convert some furniture from Citadel DLC to Sims 4
also Tali so I can live waifu dream with her. I don't really know anything about 3d design but I wanna learn it so I'd think converting objects would be good practice.

Galaxy Edition worked fine, had all the DLC. Dunno what it used to fake activate them.
Maybe don't let the game connect to the interbutts if that's what you're doing?

One of the worst Shepards I've ever seen.
Andromeda means "ruler of men". The protagonist will be a canonically female badass who will go around kicking the ass of the patriarchy. Bioware is trying to please the main bulk of their fans: tumblerinas SJWs
That's where we're going, anon. How, you may ask? We have no fucking clue.
>Caked on makeup to hide black eye
That's just how you look after an encounter with a group horny batarians that doesn't take no for an answer.
I saw a study that said that gay and bi people currently make up around 3%. Assuming that people will become more comfortable with coming out, and acknowledging it to themselves, some people think the number will 'increase' to around 6%.
Trans people is even lower, it's around 0.1-0.3%.
They don't need to "come out" to answer a damn survey. Honestly I think their numbers are exaggerated because of leftists who claim to be homos even though they aren't. Like political lesbians and people of similar disposition, not to mention virginal special snowflakes.
>They don't need to "come out" to answer a damn survey.
True, but they have to acknowledge it to themselves. Some people don't because of several reasons, homophobic parents and environment in general, strict religious parents, etc.
>You will never get your head dunked in a toilet of a sushi restaurant while a huge batarian rips off your panties and prepares his foam dispenser
>"Yuo will literally noat be ablu to shit for a week, hughmon slut"
Sounds like a rapefic prompt on MassKink.
Pls stop, this is not a real thing. Anyway, if they for some reason completely abstain from the sort of perverted fornication that is classified as a part of the gay mafia approved list of acceptable deviant activities to the extent they won't even admit it to themselves they might as well not be it at all. They just have their mental illness under control.
Well I meant any speculation WHY the next game will be there. Maybe the player is a descendant of the normandy crew and the planet in the end of ME3 is in andromeda? Maybe it's A LOT of time into the future and the people of the milky way colonised andromeda because the milky way was fucked?
THAT kind of speculation.
It takes place roughly at the same time as ME3. You're sent there in case Sheploo fails and the reapers win. You're a completely new character and pretty much nobody you meet will have anything to do with the previous games. It's a soft reboot with a new ancient evil and new races to meet.
It's all in the leaks, bro.
>Maybe the player is a descendant of the normandy crew and the planet in the end of ME3 is in andromeda?
Oh, God no. They won't have anything referencing the original trilogy.
>Maybe it's A LOT of time into the future and the people of the milky way colonised andromeda because the milky way was fucked?
According to the leak, it's part of a program to get away from the Reapers, or something.
Bioware said that the game will involve you playing as part of the first expeditionary force to the Andromeda Galaxy, a previously unexplored place, as all races in the Milky Way Galaxy have been unable to reach it.
I think it's because a previously unknown mass effect relay was discovered that leads there but I don't remember if they said that specifically.
I don't think that it's because the galaxy is falling apart or anything, you're supposed to be paving the way for future human colonization though and it was hinted that there might be some sort of settlement building mechanic.
I live in a liberal European country so maybe I'm not the best judge, but I see gay/bi people all around me, seems like everyone is a bit bi nowadays. But yeah maybe actual 100% gay people are around 3-5%, bisexuals/pans/whatever 15% or more and bicurious who knows.
what a powerful representation of love and fidelity
Anyone else think the vorcha were super under-utilized in the series?
They were supposedly so adaptable that they could live in low atmosphere/toxic conditions and were used as slave soldiers by the Krogan. Why didn't the salarians adapt them for space combat or something similar?
I'd buy MEA day one if there was an ass slider in character creation and proper ass physics in the game. Not even joking.
The butt looks weird when she crawls
There's so much different studies: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_sexual_orientation but some of them are slightly misleading when they ask about homosexual experiences instead of preference. I don't need to have sex to know I'm straight.
All this gay talk reminds me of our dear friends at /dag/.
>We will probably get to know more on N7 day.
I kinda doubt it.
It's just speculation on my part but I have a feeling Bioware has very little of the game actually complete and doesn't want to show it off just yet.
The ancient evil plot got in the way for many cool possibilities. We hardly ever got to know the more interesting species such as the hanar or the elkor very well at all. There's so much potential in the setting and they went for the lowest hanging fruit for no good reason.
MGSV is one of the best games I've played when it comes to technical stuff. Shame about the story, cut content, repeating missions in act 2 and Hideo "the rusemeister" Kojimbo
>As you may have noticed I never read the leak
Good for you, ever since I read it I have felt like I've already played and finished the game. It's pretty much DAI in space mechanically and the plot is pretty much a rehash of the previous one but sort of different.
Do you guys think bioware could get away with ass jiggle physics if the men got detailed crotch bulges too? Or is there no way they could realistically implement it?
they could do it if they just didn't call attention to it. Physics and graphics upgrades across the board means that people expect more realistic body physics. As long as none of the chracters or advertising are overly sexual they could quietly implement it.
Nah, they'd still get their pansexual panties in a twist. Lionhead Studios did something similar with barmen/maids. The maid showed off some cleavage, the man showed off his entire ass.
MUH SEXUALIZATION AND OBJECTIFICATION
THIS HAS OFFENDED MY SENSIBILITIES, AND I AM DEEPLY TRIGGERED BY THIS.
No fun allowed, basically. Gaming is an art, and has to be treated really seriously. How else will the medium and its consumers grow up?
They would have to be REALLY tight for any noticeable crotch bulge effect, whereas ass jiggle doesn't even have to be that tight. See: yoga pants. So it's not really the same thing.
Just give the male character a bulge slider.
In fact, give it to the female character, too.
I like the gameplay, but sometimes it feels not like a MGS. Also, I've seen a lot of people who play it shooting their way through, not going all stealthy. That disappoints me.
What if there's some sort of alien that's hung like a horse? You're not using your imagination.
Technically being able to give men jello asses should be enuff but that pretty much only pleases the gays. I suppose just being able to play as a buff ripped guy ought to be about the equivalent but you already do that.
It was actually recently, some hags on twitter got mad that there was a womyn with cleavage on a pic that lionhead posted. I wonder if all feminists are secretly muslim extremists or something because last time I checked breasts weren't something to be ashamed of.
It wasn't in the game, it was something they posted on Twitter. I can't really remember what, Valentine's or some shit like that.
>Technically being able to give men jello asses should be enuff but that pretty much only pleases the gays.
No need, just go the Metal Gear Solid route, and give the guy a shiny, skintight suit.
Pic: I tried to find a close-up of his ass during the main mission where it's raining, but I couldn't. Sorry!
Libruls. They made lionhead their bitch and made them apologise and everything. Anyway they get raving mad when they see a little bit of cleavage or thighs, I wonder how they handle going to a beach during summer.
They posted this for national cleavage day in the beginning of of the year.
I haven't played fable, but apperantly the foaming juggs is the name of an in game tavern
>This shitlord actually posted it
Reported, this is a worksafe Christian imageboard, such filth is not allowed here.
>National Cleavage Day
The madness! Oh, the humanity!
I kinda do too. At least it starts a spinoff in a way which doesn't interfere with anything in the original which they ruined. I don't think it'll be great but it could be okay or even good.
What's even funnier is that they initially replied with this image and the tweet "just to be clear we at lionshead don't descrimate[sic]" before taking them both down and replacing it with a PC apology
according to wikipedia it's a South African thing created by wonderbra

Sasha Grey, for those wondering.
FUCK THESE CONNECTION ERRORS.
So, /meg/, which waifu would you say was best written? I'm not asking you to pick your favourite, just the one that had most talent and thought put into her.
Jack had a nice arc going from ME2 to ME3 but due to being cut from ME3 pretty much she lost a lot of development time. Samara was also pretty well written due to not being initially designed as waifu bait. Meaning she doesn't orbit around the player and actually has her own will and values.
Chris L'etoile had talent and actually did use his brain.
>And while we won’t have any major announcements for Mass Effect: Andromeda this N7 Day, keep an eye out on Saturday for some surprises that we’re sure you’ll enjoy.
>Tomonobu Itagaki gets put in charge of Bioware and doesn't have to answer to anyone
What would change?
like >>121192684 says
Jack had the most personality of the waifus but got rekt in ME3; undergoes actual character development, even being cut out like she was. Also like Samara she isn't a 'muh shepard' hero-worshiping yes-man with a vagina.
I think Miranda is pretty interesting, lowkey. I think her character doesn't get enough credit. But maybe interesting is not necessarily the same thing as well-written.
Liara probably had the most effort put into her by virtue of her being Bioware's go-to LI. They gave her the most time and space, which makes her all the more disappointing since despite that she's still fundamentally uninteresting. I guess that would be the downside of being the 'canon' romance; you need to be appealing to as many as possible, which means being as inoffensive as possible.
I just dont understand why they insisted on doing away with a perfectly use-able, well developed, familiar, well liked setting with Andromeda. Even with the reaper war devastation is was still fine, its just mind boggling. I wanted to see Shep become the fascistic strongman that would lead a war ravaged humanity to greatness like he was meant to
Too much divergence in the endings for that, plus most of the mysteries and conflicts were solved in ME3. There's no way they would be able to make a satisfying sequel.
Miranda was pretty cool but they didn't do much with her, they should have done more with her ubermench backstory. The resolution in ME3 was very half-assed. Bashir in DS9 was a much better take on the superhuman.
I'm ok with it. It allows them to sidestep a lot of the damage they did to their lore with 3 and start over with hopefully new concepts and ideas. There's a lot of room for them to grow the franchise here and do something interesting.
I really hope they don't shit the bed with it.
This is the dried-out husk of Bioware we're talking about here.
EA has long since culled all their "volatile elements". The only type of game they could concievably make is the aggressively mediocre safe bet type.
Andromeda will bring nothing new to the table. It will be okay, but it won't be anywhere near memorable.
So far through ME3:
-Was mad at the beginning when Ashley and James were forced on me but now that more people I actually care about are popping up it's not so bad
-The pacing at the beginning of the game felt very rushed and I kept feeling like there were major gaps of the story between 2 and 3 I had missed. The first hour or two of the game is strictly combat and cutscenes whereas the other two games had you on the ship and exploring much sooner
-Ashley's face is seriously one of the most bizarre things. Every other character who has appeared in other games have all progressed naturally as the graphics got better over the years, but Ashley just looks like a totally different character now. When I do my all DLC playthrough of the games eventually I'll be choosing Kaidan instead
-Kinda lost as to what the fuck I'm doing with War Assets as well as scanning and Reaper Alertness
-The ambient conversation system is great in theory but in practice they keep overlapping with other sound effects and voices and I miss half of them. Also sometime I'll randomly get a new mission before I find out I apparently was just out of earshot of whoever was saying something
-This really is some great combat gameplay and the cover system is pretty great. Firefights are really tons of fun
-The game instantly improved when I went to the Academy and found Jack but now she's not on the ship or Citadel and I apparently have to advance halfway through the game before I see her again
-Playing without any DLC just to try and see how mad I get at the ending
Don't you only need like 100k of each mineral?
And you get half of it on missions?
Why would you do your first go at it just to get mad? id want to do it with the dlc first so that 3 would hit me with a max of the good feels it can deliver than the unintentional rage inducing ones
I got so lucky, i did one full go of the whole series and didnt touch it for a while, so i didnt realise my endings were truly colour coded and i somehow remained insulated from the massive shitstorm, so ME for me has none of the sharp, negative emotions the ending engendered in a lot of people. I understand completely but my insulation prevented me from receiving the emotional gut punch most got. I am just so happy that this means I can still enjoy all of it relatively untarnished by the 3 catastrophe
>have 150 000 units of element zero, 300 000 of the rest
>can't sell it on the black market
ONE JOB BIOWARE
Either give me back my 9 million credits, or give me the option to sell shit I don't need.
Did you play all of the DLC in ME2? That might be the gaps in the story you're missing.
To be fair, although I still hate ME3, the DLC did add a lot to the game. Particularly the Leviathan and Citadel ones. The extended cut of the ending didn't really fix anything for me though.
she has murder on the mind, she very clearly operates in a cutthroat environment and profession and wants to see her efforts since Shep's death to their natural conclusion. She, being the awkward girl she is, feels guilt about putting her ends ahead of you and so masks her negative feeling with coldness when how she feels is the opposite of what she is expressing. also her makeup on illium is hot
she's a growing woman :)
there's literally no one around though
its not like the guy on the phone is listening in or on hold or anything. besides, she acts more robotic than professional. nerylla acts professionally
sleeveless dresses with sandalspart of asari culture
I can have my own opinions thank you, I frankly find her change from aggressive, formal business type on Illium to my submissive mate by 3 to be perfect. I bet those blue savages have no problem with conforming to other culture's gender roles, oh yes
She acts robotic because I am sure you realise people often try to take on an act in certain environments, and their act doesn't come off entirely as what they are aiming for. For all she knows you abandoned her under the cover of death to join a bunch of human space fascists, she may even feel a need to be cold toward you.
>For all she knows you abandoned her under the cover of death to join a bunch of space fascists
If you read Mac Walter's shitty comics or listen to her dialogue you'll know that she recovered Shepard's corpse
>bothering to learn about foreign/alien cultures when yours is so clearly superior
Its like you don't realise the Turians wish the ancient Romans had made it into space as humanity's ambassadors instead of whatever gay extension of our current culture rules earth in ME.
>If you read Mac Walter's shitty comics or listen to her dialogue you'll know that she recovered Shepard's corpse
oh yes I forgot. Well that alone leaves a lot of room for her to act weird seeing you, shit man I dunno
Are you trying to make me sperg out in defense of Cerberus anon?
