Re: Mass Effect 3

I like the Normandy's new paint job, except for the new symbol (not getting into specifics). I kind of wish in ME3 Shepard could have just said "Screw all you various organizations, I'm my own man this time."

Oh well, it's not a game-breaker or anything for me.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Well,
were the ones who were taking it apart and rebuilding it, so it's only fair they plaster their symbol over it. Kind of like how you're stuck with the Cerberus signage in ME2, no matter how hard you tell Mr. Illusive to cram it up his smoky, mysterious ass.

Yeah, I know. If I have to fly around the galaxy with somebody's logo on my ship, I'd rather it be this group's than Cerberus'.

Re: Mass Effect 3

It should have flames on the nose, the logo should be a stylized version of Shepard's face, and somewhere, there should be prominent readable text that says

"I DON'T HAVE TIME TO JUSTIFY MYSELF TO YOUR DOCKING TRAFFIC AUTHORITIES. I HAVE A GALAXY TO SAVE"

Re: Mass Effect 3

You know it rather bothered me how freely you were allowed to come and go on the Citadel in a Cerberus ship. Omega and Illium sure, but the Citadel? The Normandy should have been impounded as soon as it cleared the mass relay. For that matter, even being able to visit the Sol System feels a bit odd as one would assume you have to pass through Arcturus first, and that system must be a fortress.

I'm still convinced that BioWare conveniently "forgot" that you have to go through Arcturus to get to Earth. And that Earth isn't the capital of the Systems Alliance.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Well I like that it's just a new paint job and they aren't blowing the ship up again.

Re: Mass Effect 3

^I'm sure that'll happen at some point anyway, I mean it's the last game, no?
Apparently it's not just a new paint job but a total refurb inside and out, so it really may as well be a different ship regardless. Not that I'm complaining; just copy/pasting the old hub map would have been exceedingly cheap--even if the basic layout will be more or less the same anyway.

That's a thought actually; what new additions do we all think the Normandy SR2.1 could do with and what could it stand to loose? Personally I vote for it having more than two private quarters. Seriously, did Tali, Jacob, Mordin, Joker, Kelly, Dr. Chakwas and Garrus all have to share a bunk rotation with the rest of the crew? That must have been...crowded. While conversely I think the room dedicated to ejecting cubes of rubbish should go. I mean what happened to omnigel recycling? Did fixing the locks put the omnigel people out of business or something?!

Damn that sound like I'm going to lose my big honking space gun.

Are we sure that part of the ship actually exists outside of interacting with Zaeed becuase one of Shepard and Jacob's conversations totally ignored the fact that the other observation lounge had a bar in it.

I assumed that Kasumi brought the bar with her, along with all of her other crap.

I don't think it's meant to be scrutinized that closely.

(Less they have some sort of Ultra Violet technology.

She built it from scratch with her omni-tools.
