The thing about Sera that pissed me of the most is the scene where she blackmails an elf inquisitor into renouncing their religion if they want to stay in a relationship

That was really bad, but I found Sera's party banter to be pretty good (depending on who else is with you, obviously)

Her accent was a mistake though.

Yeah, same. Only human protagonists, and humans being the bestest at everything for no reason has always been one of the worst parts of mass effect.

Kind of wish humans where a little more like how they are shown in Babylon 5. Sure they showed up and ended up kicking a mid-tier species rear end but then got curbed stomped after picking a fight with the toughest species on the bock.

They should really tie the DA and ME games together by putting Iron Bull in. We know from Kasumi's loyalty mission that they take place in the same universe.

How so? (I never played any of the DA games so I would have no idea what to look for). Was it something similar to the Alien head trophy in Predator 2?

I really want to be excited for this but there's this nagging voice in the back of my head that keeps saying "feature creep ruins everything". Based on a few of the things I've read and after what they did in DA:I I'm worried they're going to add a ton of annoying resource gathering/management and superficial base building crap.

You mean like the reapers? And wasn't there a Human-Batarian war before the series? Or was it Turians? I forget.

Turians and humans had a minor skirmish which introduced humans to the broader galaxy. Humans and Batarians had a small scale war right before ME1.

the fart sound travels infinitely far so there will be a random point in the game where you hear a reaper fart out of nowhere

This is probably a lost cause but is it possible to change which PSN account I have linked to my EA account? I want to keep all my ME3 multiplayer stats with it from playing on the 360 but the PSN I had linked to it is an old throwaway (which I probably should have just kept but it was different than my name basically everywhere else and you can't change PSN names for reasons).

Not in this case. A Krogan crash landed in Ferlden and died. They chopped off his head and put it on the wall. Then used the tech to do things.

Like a krogan wouldn't survive the crash and conquer the planet. What is elf magic compared to noodle fueled krogan might?

If it's like ME3 then definitely.

Just play a human engineer since those are unlocked from the start with the lightest pistol available. You're only there to spam powers anyway so the loot box gear grind is a non factor

But the little doohickeys and widgets on some guns make you spam harder and/or faster so you can top the scoreboards in this cooperative game.


They couldn't be bothered with competitive MP, could they? Volus Vanguards vs Volus Vanguards would look like the Sonic game we never got.

One of my favorite multiplayer builds was a N7 Demolisher with max grenade gear and my level nine harrier. I'd camp my ammo pylon, poo poo tech grenades everywhere for the vanguard to charge into, and finish off stuff with a rain of bullets.

This except with a Krysae back before they nerfed it. Also either the Piranha or the assault rifle that fired grenades, can't remember it's name.
