You clearly never played Jade Empire Trollololol
Nope, I haven't.
I know, right? I had the same knee-jerk reaction. People who aren't minorities kind of have the luxury of forgetting that the entire concept of "tokenism" is based on the fact that the majority literally forget you exist.
Whoa, whoa, whoa! Jade Empire was a great game!
I hoped that Normandy will get some action.
We have one of the best ships in the galaxy and all we do is blow up a couple of oculus in the final battle?
Normandy is undetectable to everyone but the reapers.
When you get to the Grissom Academy there are 2 or 3 Cerberus cruisers there and a group of fighters.
Shepards asks Joker to make some diversion and he just turns off stealth systems and starts running away. Why the hell would you do that?
They don't know we are there. We have a huge advantage. Joker could use the thanix cannon and tear apart one Cerberus cruiser, then he should start running away.
If I'd add anything (and I'm not sure if this hasn't been mentioned anywhere) I think the "dire consequences" for cheating on Kaidan or Ashley in ME2 seem to be a quick close up of the bum being subtracted from the cutscene of either character rejoining the Normandy after the attempted Cerberus coup.(Cutting corners much?) The hospital scene hardly counts as any kind of convenience. Not that I don't like it itself though. It's a sweet. scene
Call me a nitpickers, but the thing that pissed me off the most besides the ending (and no best ending for us non-Xbox Gold players), is Priority: Tuchanka's ending.
Oh hey the tower the spread genophage will ALSO spread the cure but it is guarded by a Reaper WHO ALSO HAPPENS to be standing on top of an ancient city containing the biggest Thrasher Maw in the universe and ALSO between the two strongest ground thumpers on the planet. IT'S AS IF THE ELDER KROGAN KNEW. I can only take so much.
You know, you if they were dropped from the air they wouldn't even have to add a cut-scene, just change the dialog. It was such a plothole within a plothole within suspension of disbelief I could feel blood vessels in brain go *pop*.
It's another of those moments that were the ending good, you could easily overlook it as "Eh, I'll let this slide, Tuchanka was awesome and so was the end."
Oh but we dream....
To be honest I could have overseen all the minor flaws in the game.. the little mistakes, some not so well handled conversations.. I even could have overlooked our loved Space Ninja.. and it would still have been a pretty great game.. but as we all know.. than there was the ending.. and the ending is like a slap in a face or a rollercoaster ride stopped appruptly by a steel wall...
The ending even makes people to search for more flaws in the game to somhow make it worse.. I think it is a kind of "When the whole game is sh... the ending doesn't hurt that much anymore" thing...
Yeah, I suppose once you have cheated merely looking doesn't matter much any more, right?
Yeah, I grumbled briefly about the journal, and I hated Kai Leng's magical plot-armor shielding on Thessia, but I looked past it for the most part. Those were all just little threads, but the ending helped to give them a tug and make everything fall apart.
I wouldn't have had a problem with Kai Leng if you killed him on the Citadel. Or heck, it'd be even better if Thane had killed him.
Having to go scratting round for all my stuff, I mean seriously, how much did they want to steal my ship? couldn't even be bothered to box it all neatly together for me, just spread it everywhere! and ditching Space Hamster down by engineering has to be some sort of animal cruelty right?....and it took me ages to catch the little thing!
Yeah, he would have been fine as a kind of AP (advanced placement) Mook, but as a major antagonist he was just lacking. The final showdown should not have been with him in the Cerberus base.
... or Aria.
For personal reasons.
I disagree. I don't think the problem with Kai Leng was that he was an uninteresting character. I think the problem, really, was that he was not handled properly. I haven't read the books, so I didn't really have the background on him. If he had been fleshed out more and given a more three-dimensional persona rather than simply being dropped in like an uninvited guest, he would have made a far more worthy adversary.
I don't necessarily, either. But like you, I didn't read the books. I knew nothing about him. My motivation to defeat him was based solely on "That jerk killed Thane, and then cheated with his stupid plot-armor on Thessia." He may very well have been an interesting character in the books, but you're right that they needed to flesh him out.
Kai Leng may not have been an uninteresting character, but in Mass Effect 3 Kai Leng was an uninteresting character. I'm shooting for a subtle distinction there.
Haven't read books or comics, apart from the one with Vega. That one didn't give much, though, ha, and I do prefer when all relevant stuff is contained in the game. They can write books and what not if they want, but please include all relevant information and introduction in the game too, thanks.
Knew nothing about Mr Space Ninja until I played the game. Wonder what Anime he had escaped from...
Not to mention Twitter and nonsense, but bah, enough about that... Let them make other apps and crap (crap, because I don't use it, heh) but let that be stand-alone or adding cosmetic stuff, not affect critical game elements.
Games should be self-contained, I think. Or maybe I am asking too much, eh?
Nope you are quite right. Games should be self contained. The books ,if there are any, should add to the game but plot relevant information (such as Kai Lang) shouldn't be in books.
