That one almost made me cry. It was heartbreaking to hear her cry. I think that's the only game that's almost made me cry in a really long time.

Forget crying, I was out for Geth blood after that little scene. And I almost cried.

I will ask this once. Keep the Bayonetta out of the Mass Effect 2 discussion thread please. Reasons equal obviousness.


I heart the Legion!

Yes, I also heart legion.
 
I got pissed off at the end. I kept him...er...it in my squad thinking it would be kept safe from the life/death situations only for it to be killed anyway. I picked Jacob as my bubble guy thinking he was eventually going to bite the dust only to watch Legion get offed instead. By a seeker swarm no less. How the hell does stinging insects kill a robot exactly?

Tali is my alien crush. I love her character. She's a very tragic character when she has romantic feelings for the manShep. To be inches and worlds apart Something Greek about it.

(Plus I wanted to see an unsuited Quarian but that was academic.)

A little glimpse of Quarian booty would not have hurt either but no partial nudity on this rating. XD

xD Yeah. No more "sideboob" controversy. *sadface* Her story was cute, though.

And afterwards "I'm running a fever, <other symptom I forgot>, and there's stuff coming out of my sinuses I don't want to think about, but it was totally worth it."

Minor allergic reaction. Antihistamines and all that. Epi-pen stuff.

I thought it was tragic you couldn't romance Tali in the first one. She's so damned cute.

"Just to let you know, I have a slight fever, a bad cough, and some stuff in my sinuses that I can't even identify. And it was totally worth it."

I love Tali. Also, just had some chicken go down the wrong tube. If anyone here has played RE5 or Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, Legion is voiced by the same person who did Wesker's voice.

The Geth are aiming for COMPLETE....INTERGALACTIC....SATURATION, then?

Also, look what some smart fellow found by hacking into some of Mass Effect 2's code:
Quote
SFXGame.BioSFHandler_CharacterR?ecord2]
m_nMaxRenegade=1900
m_nMaxParagon=1957
m_srXPFormat=340881
m_srSpendTalentPointsMessageXBox?=348754
m_srParagonRenegadeMessageXBox=3?48755
m_srSpendTalentPointsMessagePC=3?48753
m_srParagonRenegadeMessagePC=348?755
m_srSpendTalentPointsMessagePS3=?348755 <<<<
m_srParagonRenegadeMessagePS3=15?3007 <<<<

Looks like I won't be in such a hurry to get the PC version after all...

Yeah but you can't "see" her. It's just a model. I meant I wanted to see the character.

I had a hard time choosing between Garrus and Thane.  Garrus had been my long time crush, but Thane. . . .his story is so compelling and when he called me Siha and then teasingly said he would tell me later, I fell for him.

I loved the teary scenes.  When characters cried, that was something that was lacking in Mass Effect 1, was the more emotional scenes of people dealing with loss and grief.  Though Ashley/Kaiden's death was sad, it was glossed over.

A little too emotional, in some *cough*Tali*cough* scenes.

Also, I chose Garrus. Major awws were had.

The thing with Garrus is that, it seemed more like Friends with Benefits than a true romance. 

It was still sweet and it was odd that the Paragon choices had it where you backed out and said you wanted to remain friends whereas the neutral choice was to continue with the plan.

Friends with benefits suits Shepard's personality, anyway. Lone ranger on a quest to save the galaxy... not much time for love. Plenty of downtime for sex, though. ;D

Personally, I think the pairing that has the best potential for long-term love is Shepard and Tali, just because it took so long for Tali to figure out that she loves the guy.

I think it was more of "took a long time to admit she loves him". She does mention Feros a couple times during the romance, which implies that that is when she started to have feelings for him. And Yeoman Chambers spots right off that Tali is attracted to Shepard.

I nabbed it for ten bucks a while back, with the DLC for five. Brilliant deal, really.

I should point out; twenty bucks, in a country where most second hand games go for fifty.
