Re: Mass Effect 3

@psychopez regarding the mass relays I absolutely agree that they had to go. Ever since Sovereign described them as part of a system of control, their destruction was a condition for breaking the cycle, not only symbolically but for practical reasons. The relays were how the Reapers accessed our gal...

Re: Mass Effect 3

I quite like the indoctrination theory, or if not indoctrination at least a theory acknowledging that there's a lot of dream logic at play after you pass through the conduit. Somewhere secretly I suppose I was hoping that Bioware had some post-"end" DLC in mind relating to that theory,...

Re: Mass Effect 3

I'd really like to think that's a bit of trolling by Bioware. I'd have been happy to not know what Tali and the Quarians look like inside those suits. Secretly, I was holding out for "gestalt spider organism".

Re: Mass Effect 3

Oh absolutely. Endings that try to answer all the questions tend to bore me. I'd rather have something interesting to talk about and that tends to require ambiguity.

Re: Mass Effect 3

@Geoff_B: Interesting, I dig it. I'm not sure how useful it is to speculate on some things, but it's still fun: At a guess, I'd say that whoever the Reapers were pre-Reaping designed the Crucible as a countermeasure against their other creation, the Catalyst. I agree that synthesis is what the C...

Re: Mass Effect 3

Is this where I go to talk about what the ME3 endings mean? Because I'd like to without being told that they're garbage and that they raped my dog or whatever, so can we just take that conversation as read? Okay, here goes: I think it's implied that the Catalyst is the first AI, and that it'...

Re: Episode 46 - The Masses Are Effected

I loved the game and liked the endings. I thought they were thematically appropriate to the games. Mass Effect set out to be a pastiche of classic science fiction, and the destroy/control/synthesize trifecta is a very common conflict in the genre, but this isn't really the thread for that argument. ...
