Ha, this is so funny, oh man, hilarious... guess I better start looking for a new job. Let me know if you hear anything.

I'm sorry, the idea that it's not renegade to commit genocide on an entire form of life is ridiculous given you're presented with a peaceful option.

The reapers were an enemy to fight, and as such they must be destroyed, but as with all things the context changed and what once was considered the bad choice can twist. The illusive man trying to control the reapers would never have worked and his own hubris destroyed him; however their creator was offering control.

That's completely different.

Taking control ends the war without firing a single shot and creates peace without having to destroy anyone, even the reapers are a unique form of life that are merely subjugated by their own programming and doomed to repeat this cycle for eternity.

Holy crap, awesomeness will rise from this. AWESOMENESS.

The fact we're even having this discussion is perhaps a good thing, this is far more interesting than if the choices at the end of the game were black and white. I took a long time thinking over my decision.

If you destroy all AI life you're committing genocide with the Geth and your kill EDI, that's majorly renegade. If you take control then sure, you could be a bad guy, but that isn't what it implies. Besides you don't really "control" them in the strictest sense, you become come them. The synthesis is also a paragon choice but frankly you're imposing a new form of life on an entire galaxy that they might not want so, for me, control is the only pure paragon option. The only person that suffers is Shepard. If the Geth and EDI didn't die in the destruction option this would be more ambiguous, but the potential erasure of an entire civilisation really colours the choice.

Also they probably won't give you a cash refund, store policy is credit for a deposit and really the our hands are tied by that. It you want to take it any further you'll probably have to call customer service.

I don't think that'll be the case at all. That would all kinds of illegal. Store credit if the customer pulls out of the pre-order, sure, but not if the store fails to supply goods.

Well I'm not in this week, so I don't know, but if you're right I'd hope they'd change the policy; it's not in our hands at all.

I work at GAME as just a sales assistant and we had no clue this was going to happen, my pre-order got boned along with everyone else and it sucks.

Also they probably won't give you a cash refund, store policy is credit for a deposit and really the our hands are tied by that. It you want to take it any further you'll probably have to call customer service.

Please don't kick off at the people working there if you go in, it's just a job, they're not responsible, and they're as disappointed as you are. I know I fracking am.

If you were going to make a Republic guild with a similar themed name you could call it "Steve's Sabers" or maybe "Lemon's Lekku"

Is there any way to see the last quest step you did?

I was looking up the DLC for a game so I put in the name on search, clicked through to the page, and then immediately went to the DLC link. As I clicked a quest popped but I didn't see what it was before the page moved on.

I do some quests, here and there, so I'm not as devoted as some but... it'll drive me insane not knowing what quest I started.

I may have done a little internet sleuthing and either the Giant Bomb guys went to extreme lengths to prove the users are real or they are. Most likely the latter.
