-SPOILERS- The Final Boss?

#1 Edited by JDW519 (148 posts) -

Thought this was pretty funny up until I realized this actually was the last thing you fought in the game; If this wouldn't be considered the final battle then what would be?

EDIT; I guess to add some more depth to this post I'll just ask if anyone out there felt any of the 'boss fights' were good? Kai Leng seem to be the only character that was given much weight when confronting him, and I could care less about Kai Leng.

He will be remembered as the most badass boss in the video game history... having waited THREE games to face you! He/she is hardcore!

I think this is funny enough to exist in some form on these forums, but it was already posted and locked before as content-lacking spam.

Can someone make a character page for Marauder Shields?

still better than a big robot human filled with human mush

Oh man Marauder Shields is such a great name.

I don't think anything has ever entertained me as much as that video did. God bless Marauder Shields.
 
The boss Mass Effect 3 got, but not the one it deserved. His name was Marauder Shields. We'll fight him... because he can take it.

What if Marauder Shields is actually Nihlus?...think about it.

RIP, Marauder Shields.

Also, the Husk triplets you fight just before that are way tougher.

I feel like BioWare just found out about the ability to use slow motion in gameplay, that's why we got that horrible walking section at the end and those shitty dream sequences.

Nobody ever talks about Marauder Health.

Marauder Shields gave his life to try to protect us from the ending we must all remember the sacrifice he made.

Probably, Bioware is so smart in bringing back old characters like that

ME4 confirmed: Cerberus uses cloning tech to revive Marauder Shields. The game revolves around tracking down and killing Shepard in the past so the ending of ME3 never happens.

Seriously. I died so many times at this part on insanity. I had to shut the game off. It was harder than the final boss in ME2 for sure.

Marauder Shields is a really funny name.

#22 Posted by Jaytow (693 posts) -

I laughed, but on a more serious note I have no problem with bioware not having a boss fight at the end. Mass effect has always been a story/character driven game and that's why I'm playing it, the fighting is fine but it's not what I came for.

Marauder Shields. A true hero. Never forget.

Not every game needs a final boss. ME2 had a stupid final boss. ME3 does it better.

Goddammit. This is such a dumb thing to complain about, but you see a lot of these types of posters, and it's annoying to see how often they get this one detail wrong. The top of the head crest should meet the edge of the frame, creating a natural division of both sides, and the blue background should extend passed the midline to the natural barrier.

That was quite funny. Holding out at the Thanix missiles was seriously one of the most difficult fights in the series, though. Definitely more satisfying than the Terminator fight at the end of 2.
