That's how it's described... But it might just be near instantaneous compared to conventional FTL speeds! Otherwise it's just a big plothole. :iva:
That's a nice way of putting it.

Quote from: Aazealh
Joker himself is cyber-enhanced, if you check carefully.
And EDI has human eyes and is cyber-enhanced as well.

Quote from: Aazealh
I interpreted the "explosion" pursuing the Normandy as traveling through a relay, hence the destructive effect it had on the Normandy. Only way it can make sense in a context where the wave spared everything on Earth except Reapers.
Isn't traveling through a relay instantaneous?

Quote from: Griffith
Yeah, but if you can't trust the kid or it's all a big manipulation, why would you ever be given the real option to destroy the Reapers? Wouldn't he completely misdirect you instead? "Oh, that red switch, yeah, that's the one that kills all humans, don't touch that!"
Red ending: Since the dead reapers are just lying around on earth and they still "dream" don't they indoctrinate everybody to rebuild the reapers ?  :troll:

Quote from: IcePuck

BTW, what do you guys think happened to Shepard at the end? Everyone seems to be talking about it like he dies in most of the endings, but personally, I'm hard-pressed to see how he would have died in any of them. Clearly not in the control ending, since he's now in control of the reapers (replacing the kid maybe?). He even survives the ending where the fucking citadel blows right in his fucking face, so it's weird to think jumping into the harmless synthesis beam would spell his death where the other two options didn't.
Shepard died. But the servants of the Reapers, the Collectors, are still around. And they avenge their masters death by rebuilding them using humans and so mocking Shepard's efforts. Only Cerberus under the guidance of TIM realized this threat and revived Shepard in order to stop the Reapers once and for all.

This thread looks hilarious with its grey block posts. Do we continue like that?

After shooting the kid and walking into invisible walls unsuccessfully searching for the hidden fourth choice
I just went with red, because huskify-/reaperfying the galaxy (how do programs become part organic? or is it something like this?)
was not an option and "Yeah, YOU can totally control us! here are the keys. Now have a nice day and go electrocute yourself." seemed rather stupid.
I like the synthesis option in theory but a bit more effort than cyber-leafs and Joker's cyber-hat would be nice.

What about Kelly Chambers eh? eh?
After saving her from her worst nightmare, preventing her from being shot, not scolding her into suicide, she finally has to relive her worst memories when Husks grab her and she knows all screaming, crying and begging won't save her.
Nice, I like that.

Time for the million dollar question... Did the Mass Relay in fact destroyed all the planets around each Relay, or was this a magical explosion that delievered the code or data... or mythical signal that would express Shepard's decision?
Well, green is DNA changing space magic, red is a mighty powerfull EMP, blue is a signal override...
Then again, the explosion the Normandy tries to outrun seemed rather destructive...
I'll go with d) LOTS OF SPECULATION FROM EVERYONE as intended by the author

Both Casey and Ray's statements say we will release additional content to address questions, not necessarily alter anything.

It's also true that some parts of 3 bring shame. The first game struck a brilliant balance between what to tell you and what to leave to your imagination. Unfortunately, intentionally making a conclusive game sort of means filling in those blanks, and so it offered some clunky pseudo-explanations for things just for the sake of having them. On the other hand, it didn't cover some basics that really could and should have been explicit by the end. Like all the ways your choices specifically affected the outcome, to put it vaguely. I have plenty specific to say about it, but I'll wait for more people to finish the game.

Seriously? Does that mean you should take care of all the citadel side missions and whatnot in one go, before moving on with the main storyline?

In a massive show of force on Monday, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant and arrested the homeowner, Jesus Llovera, on charges of suspected cockfighting.

Llovera was alone in the house at the time of the arrest, and he was unarmed.

“I think taxpayers should be shocked,” said Robert Campus, Llovera’s attorney. Campus said he believes the operation costs tens of thousands of dollars.

Deputies had no probable cause to believe Llovera was armed or dangerous, according to Campus.

Campus said he believes the entire scene was basically a stage, to help actor Steven Seagal’s TV show, “Lawman.”

Seagal was riding in the tank.

Seagal and tanks should be the solution for everything!

But Ezekiel refers to him as a cherub.
My bad, I mention the "Isaiah error" and make the same mistake. Lucifer is of course a cherub.

Lucifer was a but unlike other Seraphim who had six wings, Lucifer was featured to have twelve wings.  :badbone:

I've never heard of this. What's your source?

My interest in religion is rather rudimentary but perhaps I can shed a bit a light concerning that.

First of all, Lucifer was a Seraphim but has only six wings Cherub.
Sammael (jewish lore, Angel of death) has according to jewish legends 12 wings.
So, no definite source with name and date, only a quote:
"that great serpent with 12 wings that draws after him, in his fall, the solar system."

Sammael's etymology is "Venom of God". He's referred to as accuser, destroyer and seducer hence
he's also known as Satan. (One might argue that as well, since the Book of Enoch, the old Testament
and other sources, depict them as different beings (i.e. Satan=Sataniel))

Lucifer =/= Satan (translation error, a misreading of Isaiah 14:12)
Lucifer: 6 4 wings (Seraphim Cherub)
Sammael (or Satan): 12 wings (source: jewish legends)

Can't argue with you there about Cheetara :carcus: but I don't think those are tattoos. I think those are the fur(or skin?) spots. But I don't remember Lion-O ever having spots like Cheetara.
Yes, unlike cheetahs, lions don't have spots. :schierke:
And it's a tattoo - or a green coloured, tribal shaped birthmark.

It's because growing up on the streets as a young cub is tough. Its a way to show that he has street-cred.  :troll:

I don't really care whether they roll with that steampunk/FF design (Snarf might as well be a character straight from a FF game) or go for a more cartoonish look.

On another note, ori's link also states that the Live-Action 'Akira' movie is dead. Good News.   :serpico:

That's also puzzling to me. I mean I'm not the best looking guy in the world but when I see girls practically drooling over a guy that has the face of a dog's ass it makes me question my appearance. To attract girls I need to look like ass? :???:

Judge for yourself.

You have yet to discover the powers of approaching deadlines.  :troll:
