Favorite Garrus Moments - Mass Effect 2

So more with my favorite Turian. We’ll call this: Part 2. Again, this is in no particular order—just how I remembered them. And again, this is not all of Garrus’ dialogue, just my favorites. In fact, I know I’m missing or forgetting so much! You all know the third one is going to kill me, right?

Shepard: Archangel?
Archangel: *removes helmet* Shepard … I thought you were dead.
Shepard: Garrus!

Shepard: How’d you manage to piss off every major merc organization in the Terminus System?
Garrus: It wasn’t easy. I really had to work at it.

Garrus: If you were turian, I’d be complimenting your waist or your fringe. So your … um … hair … looks good. And your waist is very … supportive. Hopefully that’s not offensive in human culture—crap … I knew I should have watched the vids.

Shepard: What if we skipped right to the tie-breaker? We could test your reach and my flexibility.
Garrus: Oh! I didn’t … hmm. Never knew you had a weakness for men with scars. Well … why the hell not? There’s nobody in this galaxy I respect more than you. If we can figure out a way to make it work … then … yeah, definitely.

Shepard: Since when did you start calling yourself Archangel?
Garrus: It’s just a name the locals gave me for … all my good deeds. Ha … I don’t mind it, but please … it’s ah … just ‘Garrus’ to you.

Garrus: Are we crazy to even be thinking about this? I’m not—look, Shepard, I know you can find something a little closer to home.
Shepard: I don’t want something closer to home. I want you. I want someone I can trust.
Garrus: I … can do that.

Garrus: If I wanted to do more than take your shields down, I’d have done it.

Shepard: You know, Garrus, if you’re not comfortable with this, it’s okay. I’m not trying to pressure you.
Garrus: Shepard … you’re about the only friend I’ve got left in this screwed up galaxy. I’m not gonna pretend I’ve got a fetish for humans, but this isn’t about that.  This is about us. You don’t ever have to worry about making me uncomfortable. Nervous … yes. But never uncomfortable.

Garrus: A quarantine zone for a plague that kills turians. Why don’t we go anywhere nice?
Shepard: It’s safer to stick with a squad that’s immune to the plague.
Garrus: It’s your call, Shepard. If you need me, I’m not going to let a cough keep me back.

Garrus: Is it hot in here, or is it just— *begins coughing*. Oh … that’s not good.

Garrus: You ever miss those talks we used to have on the elevator?
Tali: No.
Garrus: Come on … remember how we’d all ask you about life on the Flotilla? It was an opportunity to share.
Tali: This conversation is over.
Garrus: Tell me again about your immune system.
Tali: I have a shotgun.
Garrus: Mmmaybe we’ll talk later.

Shepard: So when should I book the room?
Garrus: I’d wait if you’re okay with it. Disrupt the crew a little as possible. Take that last chance to find some calm just before the storm. You know me, always like to savor that last shot before popping the heatsink.
Shepard: *smirks*
Garrus: Wait … that metaphor just went somewhere horrible.
Shepard: I’ll let you get back to work.
Garrus: Riiight … cause I’m in a great place to optimize firing algorithms right now.

Niftu Cal: Bah! I will wreak a revenge upon his people! But first … the leader of these mercenaries is in the next room! I shall toss Wasea about like a rag doll!
Garrus: Shepard … this guy couldn’t tie his bootlaces, much less fight.
Niftu Cal: I will tear her apart! My biotic are unstoppable!
Shepard: Wasea will tear you apart. Take a nap—you’ll feel better.
Niftu Cal: Are you mad? I’m unstoppable! Feasting on her biotic-rich blood—
Shepard: *knocks him over*
Niftu Cal: *getting up slowly* But … great wind. Biotic God. I’m … I … what was I saying? I’m … tired. You may be right. Yes … I’m tired. I’ll nap. Destroy the universe later …
Garrus: *watches Niftu stumble away* So much for Godhood.

Garrus: Part of me still thinks we’re crazy for even considering blowing off steam. But I want to try it with you. I want a few moments that are just for us, before we throw ourselves into hell for the good of the galaxy.
Shepard: I want that too, Garrus.
Garrus: Glad to hear it. I’ll do some … uh … research. And figure out how to … you know.
Shepard: *raises brow*
Garrus: Okay, that sounded bad.

Shepard: I couldn’t do this without you, Garrus.
Garrus: Sure you could. Not as stylishly, of course.

Shepard: Have you got a minute?
Garrus: Can it wait for a bit? I’m in the middle of some calibrations.

Mordin: Repurposed Krogan hospital. Sturdy. Built to withstand punishment.
Garrus: That’s unfortunate. Hospitals aren’t fun to fight through.
Shepard: What is fun to fight through?
Garrus: Gardens. Electronic shops. Antique stores … but only if they’re classy.

Shepard: My name is Shepard and I’m here to get you off this ship.
Jack: I’m not going anywhere with you. You’re Cerberus.
Shepard: I’m offering to be your friend. You don’t want to be my enemy.
Garrus: They have a way of dying.

Garrus: Nobody would give me a mirror. How bad is it?
Shepard:  Hell Garrus, you were always ugly. Slap some face paint on there and no one will even notice.
Garrus: Ha—ah … don’t make me laugh, damn it. My face is barely holding together as it is. Some women find facial scars attractive. Mind you, most of these women are krogan.

Harkin: I don’t give out client information. It’s bad for business.
Garrus: You know what else is bad for business? A broken neck.

Tali: My brain agrees with you. My gut says I should jack his suits olfactory filters so that everything smells like refuse!
Zaeed: A rifle butt to the head would be faster.
Garrus: Remind me never to get on your bad side.

Bailey:  … Selling illegal VI personalities. Actually, he was selling one of you.
Shepard: Me?
Bailey: Yeah. When you erased a file it would say, ‘I delete data like you on the way to real errors.’
Garrus: That’s pretty extreme, Commander.
Shepard: Laugh it up, Garrus.

Garrus: It’s easy to see the world in black and white. Grey? I don’t know what to do with grey.

Garrus: I’ll find some music and do some research  It will either be a night to treasure …  or a horrible interspecies awkwardness thing. In which case, fighting the Collectors will be a welcome distraction. Sooo … you know, win either way.

Garrus: I’ve never considered cross-species intercourse. And  damn … saying it that way doesn’t help. Now I feel dirty … and clinical.

Mass Effect 4 announcement inbound as Bioware is “pushing hard before the holidays”

Posted on LoadTheGame.com, by: Jason Moth

The long awaited Mass Effect 4 trailer or some other important announcement regarding the game could arrive soon. Creative Director Mac Walters recently revealed that the upcoming title is “looking better every day” and that the ME team “is pushing hard before the holidays, and it shows.” This suggests that Bioware could be preparing to share some more details with us in the near future. We probably won’t hear anything official by the end of the year, but early 2015 seems like a good time to reveal something. Ideally, we would like to finally see the Mass Effect 4 trailer and learn about the game’s real title but any other news would naturally be welcomed as well…
