Shadow Broker Aftermath

Instead of an opening comic, who minds if we discuss recent Bioware news?

Come on, you knew there'd be another Mass Effect. The only way we won't get one is if Bioware is like, "Huh, we just don't like money." My personal bets are on either something during the first contact war or Grand Theft Auto Starring Garrus, just because those seem to be the two people are making the most noise for. I'm kind of worried they'll do Brother Tim during the First Contact War, just because we already had that story and I'd rather see something different. Follow some grunt around.

Garrus futzing around Omega being Archangel would be exciting, but do you think they can sell a game that doesn't star a white guy? Mass Effect is really one of the few games that doesn't star a white dude and also sold well. Even then, if you want to play a white dude, you can. (I don't know anyone that did, but it's totally in the realm of possibility.)

You know what? I'm sick to hell and back of Shadow Broker, let's finish it up today.

Welcome Glyph to the stage! He really only comes up in Mass Effect 3, but we meet him here, so. The important thing to remember is that he's the Shadow Broker's VI, and also he fucks up and thinks everyone's the Shadow Broker.

Hey Liara, how's shit?

Oh wow! For once you all are glad I'm a shitty artist! That's a first.

Remember how the Shadow Broker was going to buy Sarenistotallyguilty.mp3 from Tali? Refresh your memory here and here if you need.

You can look through the Shadow Broker's files if you want. They're not very plot relevant. Probably the most significant plot wise is the fact that Garrus has a father, sister (Solana Vakarian) and a terminally ill mother, but even then, that is just barely touched on in Mass Effect 3. Grunt's is pretty funny, but you won't roll over and die if you don't read it. I think it's easier to read them on the wiki instead of in-game. Hey, though, that link has a spoiler for a character we haven't encountered yet!

There's a few videos, too, like Jacob doing sit ups because this is the horniest game, and a turian getting hit by a car. I don't know either. But there is one of Anderson talking to a Cerberus guy. Aww, he's checking on Shepard.

Let's move on. Hey, how is Feron?

Holy shit, there's a music data pad close by, and if you turn it on while talking to Feron, holy shit, holy shit, it is so loud.

Also, hey, Star Trek comes out tomorrow! Unless you see it tonight. I see it tomorrow, don't spoil it for me.

You have the option to invite Liara up to the ship, let's do that now.

... I'll do a post at some point where I count Liara's costume changes, because damn, woman.

This happens, because this is the horniest game.

(That's supposed to be Shepard's little office. Don't look at me like that!)

... just remember the tags thing for me, okay? Keep it in mind.

I'm pretty sure this is the part where you re-bang her if you banged her in Mass Effect 1.

NEXT TIME: Walking titties. No, really.


  1. Spoiler Alert: Half of the new ST movie is Kirk and Spock making out, then they do drunk dials to whatever character Cumberbatch is playing.

  2. I already had a vision of the future of the series as a franchise. ME4 is going to be a 4x strategy game. It takes place a very short amount of time after ME3 and deal with the fallout of the mass relay system.

    The galaxy's fleet is all at Earth, which cannot sustain them. You must research tech until finding a way to travel faster than light without draining fuel. Then you must guide fleet members home safely past angry vorcha and batarians to get them to their home solar systems. On the way, new and existing crew members will point out known locations like Ilia, Omega, and the Citadel, where you may carry out transactions and interact with personalities from throughout the series. Keep 'em! Collect 'em! Trade 'em with your friends!
