I FUCKING LOVE BUTTS


Ugh, EDI. In a game full of gratuitous lady butts she is the worst of all and I was very disappointed when her new body turned up. The amount of fanservice piled up on her is just gross and creepy and I just try to pretend she doesn't exist. Also her model is surprisingly poorly done and she's got texture errors all over. Blegh.


Everything else, though, I'm super hyped about. Geth Juggernaut? Krogan Warlord with biotic hammer? Put me in, coach.

Congrats dude, you have a serviceable caster gun! It has it's own niche in the pistol category as some weird SMG/babby Carnifex hybrid. As far as I can tell, the Valkyrie has no such niche and is objectively worse than the high tier ARs.

Fun Shoe

I'm sure the Geth Prime will just scale all the gun models up to his size, but it would be much better if you could give him tiny pistols, and his fingers were too big to pull the trigger.

EDI in multiplayer actually won't be too bad because the camera won't be lingering over her massive robot tits. No worse than the N7 Shadow.

I'm curious as to the power combos for these dudes.

Also wondering about the limitations the big characters might have, the krogan warlord leads me to believe you won't be able to give him weapons.

Talon IX, sorry, what?

I know the Eagle isn't the terrible worst of the worst it used to be but of all the promo guns it's probably the one I have the least use for, so I make fun of it.


also I put a Valkryie II on a TGI and decided to see what I could make of it and as long as you can consistently aim for headshots it tears through Cerberus on gold pretty quickly. I don't think that makes it great, because it has some pretty significant downsides, but it could be made great fairly easily. Make it so the second shot always hits exactly where the first does and you're talking.

As soon as I hit 12 million credits they announced DLC. I think there must have been some flag on me.

Also looks like they used that guys idea for an operation in Robin Sachs memory. That's a pretty cool thing.

This would be a major game changer for the Valkyrie, yes.
It would also be like a real life AN-94 Abakan, which is all the more reason to like it. Fun fact: the Locust's Codex description seems like it was inspired by the Abakan as well. Too bad it's utter crap in ME3

I dunno, level IV Cryo is just about as useless (in the sense that level III Cryo does the job just fine).

The amount of Rare Gear I still have at low levels is ridiculous (hell I still haven't even gotten several of them), for God's sake release a "Supplemental Pack" or something that "has a higher chance for Gear and Weapon Mods".

Welp, I'm all giddy now over this DLC announcement. This ME3 multiplayer thing blows my mindgrapes every time they announce something new for it. I gifted this to a buddy for Christmas and he just started playing last night, it's almost hard to remember what multi was like before my manifest got all pimped out (though I'm still nowhere near some of you).

I'm down to game tonight if I'm not waltzing through bronze with my buddy. I've played with a good chunk of folks from the thread and use a microphone in addition to having access to Ventrilo or TeamSpeak if anyone uses those over the built-in chat. Origin is teh_DK (manifest).

Also just noticed this:


^re: gear and weapon mods I've been pretty successful with the regular Spectre Packs. I've unlocked a lot of new mods and gear. Maybe that is because I can buy them more frequently, though.

Inferno Grenades, huh? When I think of Zaeed's voice, I hear, "Firing a concussive shot!" and "Firing a high-impact shot!" and "Guddamn!"

Interestingly enough, Zaeed did have lines recorded for using Inferno Grenades in ME2 but for some reason they went unused and he would never say anything (a bug?). Stuff like "Torching the bastards!"

From that picture of EDIAIU though it does look like there has been a bit of a reskin with more armour so it might not be a problem.

It looks like the EDI skin from the costume DLC, the armor plates on the sexbot's shoulders and forearms indicate that it's the same model.

Gonna put racing stripes on an EDI, gently caress all yall. We know the Juggernaut is a Soldier now, but what about the others? Would the EDIs be Infiltrators or Engineers? What about the Raptors? So many questions and it's less than a week away!

Jeez, no wonder we don't see Turian females on the frontlines more often, looks like they're about to snap in half at the touch of a mild breeze.

Sincere apologies to whoever Buck Rodgers is on Origin, I'm cold-ridden and was playing with a few off-site friends of mine who probably would have been better on Silver

Well, if the Juggernaut's old power is the Geth Turret and one of his new powers is a health/shield restore (going off what Fagnan's given us) the third power's probably going to be either direct damage of some kind or something like Fortification, just to make him a complete brick (...geth-brick?) wall.

Eric Fagnan has hinted that one of the Juggernaut's powers is the Geth Turret and he also has one with healing abilities, apparently not the same as Defense Matrix.

e:f,b. Although the Geth turret might be the healing power.

I swear on a stack of Bibles that I actually heard him say something like that on my last ME2 run. I remember it because it was the only time I'd ever heard it. So maybe it was (partially?) fixed for the PS3 port?

I think the third power is something like the prime pulse cannon, based on something posted in that BSN thread linked above.

I know, it's just, in that pic, the upper torso / chest piece looks like it's the same exact one as the male models', when it probably should be a tad less bulky. The angle from the side isn't helping either, I guess.

Dammit Bioware I am totally going to waste $15 on the SP DLC.

Wait, so what classes do we think the additions are going to be? I'm assuming Asari-esque duplicates are okay--like, I can't imagine what the Geth Juggernaut would be besides a Soldier given the escription. Adept or Sentinel...?

Also PC people, I'm on the list, but add me on Origin and explode everything with me and LogicNinja. (I am totally up for helping out newer players by playing lower than Gold/reviving 50x on Gold. He is probably just going to Charge everything.)

As part of this DLC pack, we are reducing the amount of stagger that the Geth faction will perform on players. If I remember correctly, the Geth Prime pulse shots and his turret no longer stagger players. Geth Hunters are unchanged.

I switched to PC from Xbox after playing ME3. I never played the multiplayer back on the 360.

Is the multiplayer good enough to warrant a purchase of ME3 for PC? I'm in a gaming glut right now while I wait for Bioshock Infinite.
