    Well if you think about it then Husks like to come really really close and at this close quarters your pistol will do shit because the husk is running pretty fast and also likes to come from behind you.

    So you are being hugged to death by them faster than you can even shoot your pistol. Hence the people in Mass Effect need some sort of melee weapon to fend those off in the very close quarters. Just because your pistol in the game works against them does not mean that it also works for the countless soldiers in the game.

    Seriously James would definitely be the country guy because can you seriously think that he would be a metal guy? No he looks rough but he's actually a pretty soft person. Hence no hardened hard rock dude.

    I like that line of thought with the different music genres for the Mass Effect squad Tali and Legion would be either Techno or Dubstep artists, Mordin an Opera singer, Garrus some kind of RnB or Blues singer, Jack definitely dark metal, Javik would create his own music style called Troll-rap where he would basically troll everyone in his rap songs, Zaeed would fit with hard rock or heavy metal, Kaidan would be the perfect ballad singer (he´s pretty bland too ).

    I always pictured James as the type of guy who would listen to stuff like Fall Out Boy. Dunno why, just have.

    What´s wrong with Dubstep? Of course it is music or otherwise some trance stuff would be no music too.

    Yeah I instantly thought about Javik as a Rapper trolling everyone in his songs. That woulds be hillarious.

    Im gonna say that pressing a spacebar to replicate the noise made by old 32k modems booting up isnt music and close this before we argue for 5 pages and the mods get angry again.

    I had no plans to argue about it anyway. I was just curious why it would not count as proper music to you.

    Anyway Javik as Eminem would be so fucking great. I wonder whom he would diss first in his songs.

    Oh man ... how can I not think about that?

    So his first song would be about Harbinger and the Reapers. Sounds good.

    Then we will finally find out.
    Can Reapers get mad?

    No one on my Normandy listens to that crap!

    Nope, they're not zombies, you shoot them and they die. In real life you could have a katana, an axe whatever, you get pounced on by an electro-organic husk, it's going to end you, however badass shepard has reflexes of a photon and can take them out with a pistol, just like badass shepard can wade through a legion of cerberus troops and kill them all. Trust me, in real life it aint going to happen, but you can do it in game.

    Well, they are.

    Also katanas are not what you want in a zombie apocalypse.
    They are meant to slice flesh, which isnt all that effective against zombies.
    You want a claymore or a zweihander to cleave them apart.

    You want something with alot of power and reach such as a large battleaxe, naginata or a claymore.
    If you are strong and get used to them, you will also increase your attack speed and build up combo movements thanks to centrifugal force.
    Katanas are also poor defence should they get close, whereas larger weapons can hold them off and allow you to kick them away and smash in their skull.
    And should you get swarmed, a larger weapon can buy you a second or two to breathe.

    Best way to kill a zombie is with a lawnmower, here is my evidence:

    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.

    why if i may ask? if i would hit a person with it at full strength it would crack their heads open thats for sure
    someone else might have gotten it wrong.

  18. #17138
    With enough strength and or skill anything is a lethal weapon.
    Its design is still combat awkward and inefficient.
    it will take far more to get a good hit in than a shovel, which is actually far better than one would think.
    Streamlined, good balance, attacks are easy to connect and follow up etc

    Well hello there, wonder if they'll do this for any other of the guns in the game. It actually looks pretty good but damn, that price tag is pretty nuts.

    Anyone here thinking of grabbing one or not something you're personally interested in? Curious to know whether people like this type of thing or not.

    Edit: Press submit before I was finished.

    Shame that it doesnt fire.
