1. - answered - but I will add, I REALLY got into Mass Effect after the EC for 3 came out. We held off buying it due to the ending drama, but got in via Game Fly, we kept that disk until the trilogy was released for the PS3, and canceled Game Fly.
6 - Preferred Shepard backstory - Colonist, it gives the most room to play with who Shpeard was when they were young.
10 - which game do I prefer? 3 - the characterizations are solid, everyone has come into their own, Shepard can jump. I dig the game play mechanics, esp. the inventory system. AND romances aren’t rewards for starting endgame, so yeah.
47. Something I do EVERY playthrough - use an assault rifle & romance Kaidan in ME3, 100 percent the suicide mission in ME2, level Jenkins up in ME1.
60 - A character I t hink deserved better from the series - Kasumi. yeah she was a DLC character, but she could have been treated better than grieving but fixated on someone who’s oblivious - plus Space Thief! how cool is that to do naught with in the third game.
65 - Best non-Shepard quote:
“Who votes we take the well-armored vehicle into the deep, creepy bunker?” (this is why we survived the creepy bunker).
75 - A moment that still give me feels/chills - After Kaidan/Ash are incapacitated by the Cerberus droid & Shepard carries them to the medbay. near the end, when Shepard braces against the gurney the VS is laid out on, not looking up or responding to Liara, so that she feels she needs to lean in under Shepard’s face to make her point and get Shep going again? Ugh, kills me.
76 - What am I hoping for in ME4? A new set of characters to fall in love with, a continuation of the slightly off kilter, slightly cheesy, snarky humor that all of my fav sci-fi indulges. Moving on from some of their fixations to find new buttons to press, more and better queer representation.
98 - If I could be any non-human species, what would I be? Quarians & Volus are right out - I don’t wear shoes from May through October unless I’m in an establishment that requires them, much less a full body suit (enviro controls or no). And Turians have a supposed meritocracy… and salarians have shorter lives and shorter emotional escapades. I suppose I’ll go asari then - long lived and biotics… could be worse.
101 - What would I say to Shep? slightly more seriously than last time, I’d probably ask them if THEY needed anything. I don’t like approaching celebrities (uless it’s like a book signing or something structured and obviously consent for the encounter is mutual) and I kind of think it’d be nice to do.
