Mass Effect 2: Where’s My Solo Scene?

Can’t really say I blame the guy.  After our heated night prior to Ilos and saving the Citadel, I randomly disappear for two years?  That’s gotta hurt.

Anyways, in ME2, you have a larger selection of choices if you’re looking for a romance (from one option to three).  One flirtatious comment can send you into a whirlwind of romance and have them knocking on your cabin door the night before the suicide mission.

A side note – I gotta admit, I was a little disappointed in the choices for romances this game.  Granted, Jacob is a sexy beefcake, but there’s not really a deep emotional connection with him.  Thane kinda freaks me out the way he looks like a frog and has those crazy eyes and precise memory.  And Garrus just looks…sharp.

I decided to hold out, since in the third Mass Effect, I’m just 100% positive I’ll be able to see Kaidan again.  I’m not even praying that he’s in it because I’m so sure that he will be.  (You hearing this BioWare?  Don’t let me down!)  I’m also positive that there will be some amazing reunion action.

However, poor Shepard had to suffer the consequences of the lack of romance.  The worst was on the eve of the suicide mission, my lonely Commander Shepard locked herself in her room and stared at a picture of Kaidan, potentially resorting to, erm, Polishing the Console.  *wink wink, nudge nudge*  How sad is that!

By the way, since every other relationship culminates in a sexy scene, why doesn’t Shepard get her own, solo scene when she decides to forgo a relationship?  Can you imagine Fox news reacting to that?

Garrus

"Talk to me, Garrus. It's sexy."

Another sad fact?  I’ve become so deprived of tenting action that I’ve even started thinking Garrus is sexy.  Mmmm, that growly voice…

I’ve already started a second game and can’t wait to get my flirt on with all the guys.

PS – BioWare, feel free to consult myself or Wadoobie on ME3.  Or send us copies and we’d be happy to help test!

Thanks for ruining KOTOR for those of us who have yet to play it.

Spoiler alerts null after game is over five years old and on an outdated system. If you haven’t played it yet…what are you waiting for? Xbox 10,000?

Yeah, that game is super old! After 2 years you can’t blame someone for spoiling a game for you. If you really wanted to play it, you would have by now.

Garrus is awesome, but since I’m not into dudes, gotta go with Tali. Now there was some interesting dialogue (especially Morbin’s input…).

Hah, yeah, I played KoTOR when my (currently 6th grade) kid was barely a toddler, so I think ‘spoilers’ are not up for discussion on that one!

Me, I was Garrus’s girl before I knew I was Garrus’s girl. I admit I hurried through the original Mass Effect and skipped a lot of side story because at the time I didn’t have a whole lot of free gaming time. There were only two love choices and frankly I wasn’t all that fond of either of them. But I’m a relationship junkie with Bioware games, so I just picked one, and Kaidan seemed the most natural plot choice for my character. Through it all, without really giving it much thought I talked to Garrus the most, kept him in my party the most, and he was the only one whose sidequest I completed.

When Garrus first showed up in Mass Effect 2, my Shepherd’s exclamation of surprise was drowned out by my own “omg wtf, Garrus, man I’m so happy to see you” ranting at the screen. That was my first realization of how much I’d actually liked the character…and then the darker, deeper path they took with him in ME2 hooked me utterly.

Garrus is another one of those characters whose alignment is malleable depending on the sort of example you set for him. He has a deeply-ingrained sense of injustice and a tendency to take on responsibility for everything that goes wrong around him. He does the wrong things, but for the right reasons. What he’s gone through and what he’s done between ME1 and ME2 have left him in real danger of losing himself. Keeping it vague, I will say that his confrontation with “Fade” was unsettling…and the scene following it heart-wrenching.

Meanwhile, though I hadn’t found Carth II/Kaidan too interesting initially, I had gotten a bit attached to him since I’d made him my boyfriend…and I was quite put out when he wouldn’t even *listen* to my side of the story. I perused my messages (THANK YOU KELLY. GO MAKE SOME COFFEE OR SOMETHING) and considered holding out to see if I’d get him back in ME3. But when conversations took a really unexpected turn with Garrus (I hadn’t read any rumors, reviews, or forums), I boggled, then went for it and never looked back.

His appearance is definitely jarring at first, but once I got past that, I realized he is totally the Captain Mal of Mass Effect. Sexy voice (bless you Brandon Keener), wickedly ironic sense of humor, former soldier turned vigilante, dangerous to cross but vulnerable and sweet at the core. Ain’t no power in the ‘verse can stop him.

The only reason I played ODST was because Nathan Fillion was a voice of Buck. It’s a secret shame.

Ain’t no shame in that. Heck, I’d listen to a statistics and accounting lecture if Nathan Filion were going to chime in once in a while. Hmmm, I smell an opportunity in the higher education business…
