    The best part is, I'm not sure which tracks were edited in and which tracks I can imagine Bioware thinking appropriate for that scene. :lol:

    The African music by the end of the movie, I assume it's real, I mean, it's the only one to fit with the context.

    It actually sounds good, could use more synth but it is far better than what I expected after Jack Wall left. Well the derpy dramatic no synth tracks sound bland. But it has some nice tunes to pop futuristic moles with.

    Commander Shep saving his crew of course. Can't leave them stranded, devoid of Shepard's sex and collar-grabbing.

    It must be real. It fits the game atmosphere too well to be fake :smug:

    So, what, is that it? Is that the Reapers' grand motivation? "We're synthetics who destroy organic life top stop synthetics from destroying organic life."

    Scene: Normandy crash.
    Quiet gust of wind and the sounds of an awakening jungle give cue to an African soundtrack. The hatch opens, revealing surviving members of the Normandy crew. Battered, tired and broken, they face the rays of the sun with a faint hope for a new beginning.
    The camera reverses angle, revealing a chainsaw rape gang waiting for them. The camera reverses again, showing shock on the survivors' face. Scream of shock are heard. The music begins playing louder and louder, drowning out all the background sounds, as the scene shifts to credits.

    And if crazy AIs really are such a threat in this universe, then all you did in ME was to remove this protection mechanism. Hawkesome. Although I thought the AIs were sentient in ME, so what is the purpose of maintaining the germ of organic life (specifically, by killing the individuals) at that point anyway?

    Reaper's agenda makes no sense, they should have stood within the Citadel to warn every race about synthetics, eventually destroying the ones who failed to abide by their rules.

    Totally right, but it is said they only "rape" life that is a starefaring civilisation with a big enough developed tech. In the last "cycle" when those Brotheans were reaped, the humans were left untouched. They just love organic life so much that they utterly destroy well enough developed species in a very brutal and perverse way, it's only for the bigger good!

    In some twisted cheesy way, I really like what they have done with those reapers, I am satisfied. :smug:

    I get that, sort of, but since the old races get killed anyway, why does it matter if the next ones are sentient AIs or whatever evolves from the remaining germ of organic life, especially given that the "organic life" option involves periodically destroying their achievements and inflicting massive misery on them? (maybe this doesn't make any sense, I think I broke my brian trying to grasp these SHADES OF GREY)

    Because in "their thinking", such a singularity and the resulting AI would just eradicate everything, making planets, solar systems, complete galaxies void of life and ressources as it spreads out further and further - on the contrary to biological life, which always values ressources, ecosystems and the health of their planet and all.

    Wait....




    :lol:

    Well atleast that's the reasoning and I am ok with that.

    ME3 should have a secret ending that's like the architect scene in Matrix Reloaded (or was that Revolutions? Whatever), except it's Shepard meeting Mac Walters. "So it was you all along!" Shepard shouts. He demands to know why everything is suddenly grimdark and his pilot is fucking a robot, and Walters strips naked and starts playing with his own shit and asks Shepard if he's emotionally engaged. Shepard sinks to his knees and says: "Now it all makes sense." Then he shoots himself in the head. Walters starts humping a Reaper.

    Our minds just can't properly comprehend the complexity of the reapers. :smug:

    On a more serious note, this could be a big deal in our future too, ofcourse not that particular event, but who knows what some AI on the loose will do? Before ME3 I have only heard good things about AI-research, but the concept of this is popular as seen in various movies, books etc. In the end we are talking about some B-Movie game, don't take everything too serious and the game has a decent fun value. ;D

    :lol: And the reaping shit, what is that? Why not just develop better weapons while you're chilling in dark space and at least destroy the developed races in a mercifully humane way, rather than WAGING CENTURIES OF GRUELLING WAR AND TURNING THEM INTO GOO.

    This is probably what Walters envisioned (and most likely wrote) for the ending of ME3, but the EA overlords said they couldn't put this into the game because of the obvious Adult rating the game would receive, thus hurting sales.

    Masterfully skilled Biodevs masqueraded Walters' superb ending with subtle storytelling and cinematics, emotionally scarring you forever and causing irreversible brain damage to anyone that attempted to make any sense out of ME3's ending.
