Re: Mass Effect 3

I think I found a bug in the Citadel DLC: Shepard refuses to play the Towers of Hanoi game in the arcade.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Well that was... interesting.

I was half expecting the end to reveal it all had been a vid or something.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Played some more last night - love the idea of the combat arena, the whole 'gameshow' presentation of it. Good customization around it as well. Had a couple of quick goes, got two silver awards so unlocked the Reaper units and Elites.

Went to the arcade and played some of the mini-games, didn't realize that there were so many! Won a load of music tracks and a plushie for the apartment.

Ended up going back to the Normandy, progressing my next mission, which was the Geth Dreadnaught, and then had a load more hookups unlock via email.

Not a bug. An in-joke.

I know - I was being sarcastic. And mildly disappointed that they played it straight instead of reviving and old friend.

(It showed up in several other Bioware games too, before Dragon Age had a tombstone for the "unmourned" T. Hanoi.)

Re: Mass Effect 3

Just finished it... that was some damn fine DLC. I haven't had that much fun in a while. Nearly every moment was perfect. Some touching moments, many hilarious ones.

It was a good way to wrap up ME3 and you can tell the effort they put into this pack.

Some of my favourite moments:
-Joker's story to the bartender in the casino about how he "helped" defeat Cerberus during the attack on the Citadel. It was just so over the top that I had to support it.
-Coming across Shepard's hamster on the Normandy. "Oh... that is not okay! She messed with my hamster guys. Now it's personal!" "All right, sit tight little guy. Anybody gives you trouble... go for the eyes."
-Shepard dancing in front of the crew at the party and their comments.

Oh... and all the conversations you overhear from the "N7" soldiers on the Citadel about their missions and dealing with their squads. Nice little jabs at the multiplayer folks there.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Probably one of the most satifisying is the soft romance stuff as I felt that my choice of an ME2 romance was really sidelined in ME3 and this extra stuff made it seem like it matter now.

Re: Mass Effect 3

I have to admit, I've only played the Citadel DLC with a character who (sort of intentionally) got ALL of the Cerberus personnel on the Normandy killed in ME2. Yes, even Jacob and Miranda. Yes, I made sure to put off the suicide mission long enough to watch Kelly Chambers get chopped into smoothie, just so I could take Legion to Tali's trial and watch the Quarians shit bricks.

I almost feel like I'm not really missing anything, but now I'm curious...

My favorite by far:

Shepard: Glyph, did you find the target yet?
Glyph: He is accessing a secured archive. He does not wish to be disturbed.
Shepard: What?
Glyph: I thought he was you.
Shepard: Argh! Find him again!
Jaavik: Stupid machine...


Close tie for second place:
"I don't wanna talk about it!!!"

Re: Mass Effect 3

One save file after the Cerberus coup attempt on the Citadel and the gibbed save game editor is coming in soooooo handy at the moment.

Is it possible to do that and have Chakwas survive? If so, I have a new playthrough to do...

I thought the Citadel DLC was fun for the most part.

Chakwas survives pretty much no matter what.

Loved it! I cracked up multiple times.

"'I should go'... does that sound like me?"
"Yeah, pretty much."
"Hmm... I should go... I should go."

So many other moments that I can't remember them all, but that was the best of all.

You know you can still do that without putting the suicide mission off.

Re: Mass Effect 3

I loved the bit where you go to get Grunt out of trouble and he's recanting what had happened. The bit where he flys past the window in the Presidium - literally

Also liked the last lines;

FemShep: "I love you Grunt"
Grunt: <Beavis mode> "Heh heh heh......" </Beavis mode>

Brilliant!
