    I got a problem though. I saw people run with the item you are supposed to retrieve. The item dropping and being picked up sound plays over and over again in the map before the announcer has a chance to say "Object has been dropped"

    Is this a hack or a glitch? I mean, I know a few faster ways to retrieve (Walk sideways, backwards. Heavy melee on Vorcha, Krogan and Armiger Turians. Perhaps N7 Fury and sword users too, never tried) but I couldn't figure out how to run around with the objective, retrieving both in about 15 seconds.

    I guess that makes it legal then?

    I'll give it a go in a few bronze solos to get used to it, thanks.

    First time I heard that I thought the person was trying to troll spam the group with that noise.

    Yeah I found the decalls options, set them to 4 minutes durations but body disappearing really contributes to make the game unrealistic. They pay a lot of attention to have plenty of npcs in the background in the citadel. But in fighting area everything seems disconnected from reality. You stand a spot and kills dozens of husk just to see the place clean as new 15 seconds later.

    That's typically done to accommodate lower-end PCs, as having a lot of objects (such as corpses) littering the entire playable area eats up a lot of enemies. Though they may have removed it for another reason, who knows. Honestly, I never really noticed them disappearing because I'm always focused on moving forward. lol

    Another thing that i'd like to edit is to replace the standard Liara suit to look like one of the armored suits (Ideally the new armor from the last DLC). I hate the one she wears in the early missions before you get access to the normandy, she also wears on the normandy and the citadel and in most of the cutscenes.

    This kind of stuff is just based to accommodate lower end consoles, I mean every consoles. They have like 256mo of RAM, while most PC users would consider 4go lower end.

    Well, obviously, though I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say 4GB is considered lower end for most PC users. I know a ton of people who still use 2GB. lol When I said lower-end PCs I kinda just assumed you'd include consoles in that (since, as you said, they're even lower). This is why I detest console gaming and avoid it if I can! *hugs his PC*

    I actually like her default ME3 and LotSB outfit. But then again that's probably because I compare it to her science uniform from ME1. lol

    I always knew that you can not trust those Leviathans. The only thing they want to achiev is to be the "apex race" once again and rule over the galaxy and kinda indoctrinate the races much like the Reapers do.

    The Leviathan states that the catalyst is still doing what he was programmed to do when you ask Levi why they don´t destroy the reapers or never attempted to do. That means that the Leviathans still hope that the Catalyst achieves synthesis as this was their plan after all. This is why they created the catalyst, to find a way to unite organic and synthethic DNA because then they would not need those artifacts anymore to control the species. They could do that naturally because in synthesis every life is kinda connected much like a cell phone.

    Anyways I never kinda trusted them. BTW: I heard the interesting theory that Omega station is infact an old crucible from a former cycle. Maybe that is true as the station does look almost the same as the current crucible.



    On the ME wiki it is stated that the Protheans once tried to "mine" Omega because of it´s rich Eezo. What if the Protheans did not mine it but build it? It does look a lot like the current crucible.

    Everything but the asteroid was built by people of the current cycle. It really isn't a sound theory. The Asteroid omega is built into was split in half. The theory if you follow it was assumed to have the asteroid not split in half but crash onto the prothean crucible. It doesn't make much sense why an asteroid would make a perfect replica of the crucible in a random crash.

    Nor why the codex wouldn't indicate that the station was already there when the Eezo rush happened this cycle. It is just a hive of scum and villany built from the husk of a once very rich mine. Nothing more nothing less.

    Pro-tip: Buy your BioWare points today, just in case the whole system crashes tomorrow like it did with Leviathan.

    Well if I think about BioWare and their love to retcon things in ME then this does not sound that bad to be honest. The things we know now are that it was built by miners but the kodex entry for the citadel does say that it was build by the protheans too.

    Silly theory nontheless if you consider current lore on omega. Does look a lot like the crucible tho.

    You used to be able to do that on PC video game, like 5+ years ago, before every game had to be released on console too...I remember doing in Deus Ex 1.

    Oh that, i thought Yakobo was talking about unleashing a singularity in the citadel bar that tosses all the shit around.

    You can do it in Deus Ex: HR.
    You can throw vendingmachines at people if you are strong enough.
    You know you pissed someone off when theres a flying vending machine heading towards your head.

    Right, but storywise, everyone but Shepard and crew believed that the Citadel and Mass Relays were built by the Protheans. Remember that only Shepard got to chitchat with Sovereign and the Prothean VI on Ilos was too damaged when the Citadel forces found the hologram (the Council states this in ME2.) Shepard and a select few knew the truth behind the Citadel and the relays but most of the galaxy still believed them to be built by the Protheans.

    Its not really a retcon, the codex is simply stating what most of the galaxy believes. It was suppose to be a twist that these structures were actually built by the Reapers.

    Codex is supposed to be encyclopedia written by someone in the galaxy, not a wiki.
    Its like expecting a real encyclopedia to know where all the nazi-gold was hidden.

    I totally forgot that only Shepard and his crew got that amazing background infos on protheans, reapers and stuff. The most galaxtic citizens had no clue about the reapers till they showed up as the citadel attack (ME1) was told to be a geth attack and not an actual reaper. Only the very important guys knew about the true nature of that.

    That would also explain why the explanation for the citadel is still "believed to be build by protheans" in ME3 when Shepard knew since Ilios that this is not true.
