I've been known to write some pretty good stuff from time to time. Just ask the mods. They probably know me like a brother by now. -MIxeD

That's what I hated about Gears Of War 3.
I read the first two Gears novels and they were AWFUL. Traviss is not a "writer". She's a fan fiction author who has somehow conned her way into legitimacy. Gears was never the best written story, but she actually made it worse.

Well, clearly I have to check out this Karen Traviss person and see how she stacks up with George R. R. Martin.

oh well yeah, hears ago, I thought you meant recently. But for AC, I also hope they do post, I actual.y liked the few times we played as Desmond in III, I found it fun and a little bit more challenging. I'm also curious to see what Juno is gonna do exactly.
Yeah I'm a stalker what about it?

Yeah, it was more challenging, right? No animus markers, no HUD options, just you and your training. Honestly, I've been waiting, since AC I, for them to make an entire game without an animus. I really hoped that's what they were going to build up to. Desmond was supposed to be getting training, right? And we take on that role. So I felt like the Animus was teaching you what to look for and, eventually, you'd be on your own. No markers for who is or isn't attacking, no waypoint. Just your training and experience guiding you through the missions, which you would know your mission through storyline events and maybe a cell phone you could pull up to re-read e-mails, texts and maybe even listen to voicemail pertaining to whatever mission(s) you were doing. It would replace the animus spelling everything out in a more realistic way. That was my hope, but clearly not going to happen, now. Still, could have been fun.
As for Juno, I agree. Again with the deus ex machina, though. It bothers me.
But yeah, I'm with you. Desmond's missions were really fun, definitely more challenging in regards to no hand-holding and Juno was left on a pretty big "Now what?" moment to really end anything. Hopefully we'll see something really good come from it, though.

^ Hahahahaha, no.
Wow you are oblivious. Try watching the vid again. But this time, listen to what the Didact says following the gesture. Why would he say that if he mind-controlled the allegiance of the Elites in the room? Why wouldn't he have just mind-controlled John then?
Your lack of comprehension is disturbing. ...or at least it would be if it wasn't so hilarious.
So please, keep arguing like you have an actual point here. It's very entertaining for the rest of us.
And the best part is YOU posted the vid in the first place. Absolutely incredible.

Back to the topic at hand: One thing I always loved about the Mass Effect series was the encyclopedia type menu it included in game. I would literally spend hours reading and listening to everything that thing had in it to learn more about that universe.
