    Explaining Synthesis is more difficult.
    Of all the things in ME. Biotics made the most sense, since they've explained to you what Eezo does and how it effects things. Most of the Human Biotics are made up of people who were affected by disasters with Eezo. The other Biotics are people who've been experimented upon for it (genetic alteration is counted in here). Humans are relatively primitive in evolution compared to the other biotic races.

    There might actually be an element like Eezo in our universe. We most likely cannot comprehend what it is with our current instruments. Or worse, identify it.

    Hell, just a few months ago we discovered a new element; Ununpentium.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    The Unun is just a place holder until the finder comes up with a name. Learned that from my high school physics teacher, who has a doctorate of physics in two countries (Russia and Canada). Why she teaches high school, I have no idea.

    It wasn't so much discovered as synthesised - ununpentium is faux-Latin for 1-1-5 (the chemical number) and doesn't really do anything to shake our understanding of the universe, it's basically the same as a natural element but much less stable and the heaviest 19 elements on the periodic table were produced this way (when I was at school element 105, Dubnium, was called unnilpentium or 1-0-5-ium).

    Eezo is likely a form of neutronium (Element Zero = no protons in nucleus ~ mass made only from neutrons?) and is kinda broken in the way it works with regards to FTL and artificial gravity. The way it gives people biotic powers only makes sense in super-hero logic and it definitely sets the tone for ME allowing a lot of space-magic.

    AMG, Reapers invading the universe of Star Wars! Galaxy Fleet under the command of Shepard forming an alliance with the Jedi Republic and the Sith Empire. Galaxy Fleet vs Star Wars Fleet. Biotics vs the Force. My boner has a boner.

    I wish I had some skill in 3D design and modding. I would totally make a mod for Sins of a Solar Empire so we can have epic battles.

    I've been playing the Battlefield 4 campaign the last few days, and I noticed it has a soundtrack song very similar to Mass Effect 1 - Vigil. It's heard througout the game, especcialy during the Singapore mission.

    Did anyone else notice this?

    I fail to see where the 'first person' part is applied.

    Hmm. FPS = First Person Shooter. In ME3, you play from the first person POV and shoot things...

    ME3 is not first person PoV, its third person over the shoulder.

    Ummm, what? Besides using the Sniper Rifle's zoom or a few turret sections, the entire game is from the Third Person perspective.

    But you yourself play it in first person.
    Bet you didnt think of that.
