So, after changing into that humiliating short ass dress, we're allowed to choose our date for the casino. You can actually pick Wrex here, which is hilarious, but instead I'll dance with the girl I came with.
So there's this red carpet scene?
Everyone else loves the red carpet scene, I get second hand embarrassment from it. It's pretty bad.
One of the complaints about Mass Effect 3 was that there weren't enough romance scenes. Some people wanted a dating DLC where you could actually go out and do stuff with your significant other. No, really, and they were gonna pay money for it, too. Like, JFC, either get a real date or discover An Archive Of Our Own.
I like the romance scenes, but if it's not obvious, I don't have a high tolerance for overly scmoopy crap. I think what Bioware gave us was a nice compromise.
Liara says to mingle with the other casino patrons to look natural. Get surprised, Shepard's not a not a mingler.
Eventually, Brooks figures out how to slip into the casino's panic room.
The contacts make the wires glow colors.
Oh, and also it makes your eyes glow green. I'm glad we were worried about being conspicuous.
Brooks will sometimes call in and give you a little mini mission.
Of course, being a video game and all, you then do the mini mission.
One time Garrus does it, which is ... weird.
When you finish, Shepard will call Brooks.
Anyway, off to the panic room with us!
I'd like to take this moment to congratulate Khan for being the one motherfucker in the 2180s who uses a desktop instead of a space iPad.
There's this big static-ey screen overtop that lights up. You know what? I think I see -- you know what, never mind, that's likely my bad art.
.... annnnnnnnnnnnd Brooks is the only one trying to earn her paycheck today.
