Did You Know?


In the DLC 'Citadel DLC' Ashley Williams and Commander Shepard have a drinking contest at the casino bar. At that moment a Vorcha and Batarian walk over to them. This is the conversation they have. [The batarian hits Commander Shepard's arm to get his attention]. Batarian: "My friend doesn't like you Alliance types". Ashley Williams: "Listen dude, we're trying to do something here". [Commander Shepard focuses on the game again. The Batarian hits his arm once more]. Batarian: "I don't like you Alliance types either". At this point Ashley and Shepard get annoyed and beat up the Vorcha and Batarian. This is a huge reference to Star Wars. See more »

Unforgettable game, the kind it will be remembered like a true ground breaker
11 March 2012 | by spadurar-271-261202See all my reviews

I've started playing ME2 and it appealed to me so much that I went back and played the first one, so that I will create - to quote Dr. Okeer - "the perfect specimen". In other words, I love this world and I would recommend to anyone to give it a try. When I've started ME3 I was at first unnerved by what I considered sloppy writing, but the game proved me wrong -it grows steadily and ends up a giant. Don't believe the whiners that complain about the ending. It's not only the best ending that I saw in a long time, it the only possible ending (within the logical frames of the story). This game depth and capability to draw you in the story are unparalleled.
