Maybe one of them will lend me theirs so I can wear it as a really stiff belt. :U

Fantastic. I definitely want to try that at one point. Already conquered my fear of rollercoasters. All that's left is heights :P

So every knife in the world gains flight, becomes sentient, and becomes angry at all humans. Gameplans to not die?

I think I just stumbled upon a new RPG idea.

Hi, by the way. Been a decent long while.

Considering the average human:cutlery ratio, we wouldn't last long. Ironically, the homeless would be the most likely to survive [initially] as most do not have any cutting utensils in their possession.

A while, yeah. How goes?

I did that recently. People tried to encourage me to go renegade after, but I feel like being nice is more rewarding than being a jackass. XD

Being a Renegade in ME2 is fun though.

After watching a bit of an ME3 walkthrough, I quickly decided that I prefer Wrex living over Wreave.

I like Wrex a lot, ye. Always did like a dry sense of humor.

"Shepard"
"Wrex"
"Shepard"
"Wrex"
ad infinitum. :P

And yeah, I never liked Wreave. He just embodied the evil hyper-aggressive Krogan stereotype and it annoyed me. So naturally when the incident where Wrex was potentially gonna turn on you in the original game, I did everything I could to placate him.

But yeah HF, I would suggest doing a Renegade playthrough in ME2 at some point. Some of it is mean, true, but a lot of it is just being brutal in delivering what's deserved. And it's badass as all hell.

Maybe one day, if I'm ever in a bloodthirsty mood. For now I'm content to not be a jerk. :3

If one chooses to save Tali over Ashley in ME1, does it result in some kind of conversation with any family of the latter in ME2?

You mean Kaidan? Not that I saw, although I didn't actively go looking for side quests in my blind run through ME2. I was more concerned with doing everything I had to to make sure everybody lived.

Though you do see the Virmire survivor in ME2. Once. It's a gutpunch.

According to Kotaku, that Monster Hunter movie talked about a few years ago is happening. With the track record a lot of movies adapted from games have, this one will probably be a black mark for the series.

Never meet Wreave, Wrex survived ME 1 thanks to nifty diplomacy.

I only played through the series once, from start to finish, same character.

Femshep for biggest ***** in the galaxy all the way!

I did a pretty balanced ME2, with a slight leaning towards renegade. I found it the most satisfying way to play. You could be fair and compassionate when it called for but just cut through the ******** when people are being unreasonable.

I don't like being a **** for no reason, but I also don't like calling the mission to an immediate halt to go save some garbage space kittens, so I find it hard to play pure paragon or pure renegade.

In other news, I did my first free fall jump, no more static line!

Here's me, unfazed, preparing for the big moment

A while, yeah. How goes?

Personally I'd go for the old 'dress up as a knife and pretend to be disabled when they question why I can't fly' approach. The classic, ya know.

Pretty good. Just started learning programming and actually finding it pretty good fun (I wouldn't have considered it a few years ago), even though Java is kind of a fussy b*stard.
