I love both KOTOR, but am always surprised to see that most people seem to prefer the first one; probably because I was, and still am, in awe before KOTOR2’s writing (its careful deconstruction of the Star Wars universe, among other things), when KOTOR1 feels more… generic, in a way.

If ME4 is set before the events of ME-ME3, I hope we at least get a brief mention of Shepard. Like if we past by a hospital, we can hear about a new baby called Shepard being born. Or even funnier, a teacher NPC can talk about a ‘kid named Shepard who keeps saying these monsters are coming to get him/her’. Basically, any foreshadowing.

I really liked how in ME1, you and your team could be sent to the ground from a biotic attack. It made the battle feel more urgent and careful not to just charge through. A part of me wishes they incorporated the ability of you and your team getting knocked off your feet in 2 or 3. It would’ve made the battles more realistic and challenging.

If they do make a Mass Effect movie, I don’t want it to be about Shepard. I really want it to be focused on Anderson instead. His experiences in the First Contact War and its aftermath especially. And the perfect ending would be him giving his first order as the Normandy’s Captain, especially if it’s to an off-screen Shepard (still voiced by Meer or Hale).

I can’t believe no one’s done crossover fanart of Ashley as her name sake Ashley ‘Ash’ Williams of The Evil Dead fame, she even refers to her rifle as a boomstick in the game.

Having recently played through the Mass Effect series, I can honestly say that nothing about it stood out to me as a “pop culture phenomena”, except for the N7 armor and Quarians. First time I met Tali’Zorah in ME1, my honest reaction was “holy shit, so THAT’S what they’re like”. Needless to say, Tali was my romance in ME2. :P

Samara’s loyalty mission was the first time I ever saw Mass Effect (at the time it was my brother playing it and I never knew we owned it). I thought the animation was wonderful compared to other games I was playing at the time and it was amazing to watch. To the day Samara’s loyalty mission has a special place in my heart and I always look forward to re-living the nostalgia when I playthrough Mass Effect 2.

I can never tell Chakwas to stay with on the Citadel as opposed to rejoin the Normandy in Mass Effect 3.

I simply LOVE the atmosphere Gamer Poop has created in ME3. I adore default Shepard because of these videos and I kinda wish the game was like that too. It makes me sad that normal Shepard doesn’t say “We’ll bang, okay?” and acts like he doesn’t want to own females

Mod’s Note: I linked the first episode of this on the x, but be warned: it is a bit… well, I will allow you to make your own decisions, but WATCH AT YOUR OWN RISK.

I find it simultaneously funny and sad that Bioware, who are so proudly Canadian, made it so that in the Mass Effect Universe, Canada is part of the United States, and that the UK in Mass Effect 3 is a Republic. Anyone want to guess what the K in UK stands for?
