@pornstorestiffi: It's been posted on this very thread already. I'm guessing you went right to posting?

You can get one free item from someone who feels bad enough about you to help you out enough just so they wouldn't have to go in, one free item but it has to not be something insane like a flamethrower.

Well then, that eliminates my choice. I'm fucking dead. Also, I find it very weird that it's only up to my family and I, I would think plausibly there'd be more to it.

One last thing. As fantastic an experience I had with the series, I don't think the ending of this is quite good enough to warrant a recommendation for someone who hasn't played any of these games and wants to see it through. I think by now, going through it would seem wrong, unless you went through it without any idea and experienced it as most did.

Your Crazy! The whole series as a whole is amazing, by missing this series who would miss the introduction to the world in 1, the story of putting together a team and some of the best characters in games to take on a intense final mission and ME3 where you unite the species to fight the reapers. I regret nothing about the 200+ hours ive put in with my various playthoughs. There is something amazing about choices I made in 2007 being realized in 2012.

Ha ha, no, I didn't say I regretted it, I just said from someone that hasn't played it, and if they were to ask me, I wouldn't be able to recommend it because of the ending. I would simply say play it because it's a great experience, and you'd love the world and characters, but don't do it because you want and hope for a fantastic ending. I didn't mean I regretted it. I also don't mean the ending sucks, but I think it'd be worse for those that haven't yet played it and if they now start it, they'd probably hope for something better in the end of their long journey. I've played way over 200 hours of this series, and for me personally, I didn't regret any of it. I guess I should have been slightly more clear about what I was saying.

I don't know, that's why I'm asking. What do you think the most powerful, and in an evil "I will destroy you" kind of way, not a "Oh, I am holy and I can heal the univerrrrrse!" No. Now, some examples, from a video game point of view would be, Combine, Reapers, Covenant, Chimera, and etc. What do you think? Discuss. There's probably a definitive one out there, and I don't know it, but someone might, or maybe there isn't. Right now, I'm thinking about the Engineers from Prometheus 'cause that films been on my mind ever since I've seen it a few weeks back, and the Reapers because of the new ending DLC, that's basically why I made this thread. Oh, and as for the question, I don't really know I'd think the most powerful is, but I'd like to discuss it if you would.

@Liquidus: Yeah, that does sound ridiculous to me too, but still. Well, let's say if it were one of my friends and he/she wanted to play the game near me, I would kind of... not like that. I'd just keep thinking "NO! You have to do this 'cause it'll make the experience better!" but then on the other hand I'd be thinking the total opposite and go "Fuck it, this stuff won't have much of an effect on the end anyways." That's one of the reasons, but there are a few more. I think It'd be hard for someone on their own to experience it like the rest of us did.

@NTM: I was very excited when it looked like it was going to get the HD treatment, but recent news leads me to believe that it has been put on the back burner if not outright canceled. While I do like Killzone 2 and 3, both single and multiplayer, it seemed like a departure from where I thought the series was going to head. The last games lacked a certain sense of class and seemed to strive to be more like other games in the FPS genre instead of striving to be unique like the first installment did. The characters in K1 were far more interesting than Sev and the crew, and the varied mission types kept the game on point. I actually just bought Killzone 3 about two weeks ago, which in turn makes it pretty evident that I wasn't exactly running to the store when it came out after playing K2. Killzone: Liberation on PSP was also quite a good game and I felt it was more in line with the original so every fan should check it out. I would love to see what someone could do with the Killzone universe if it received some stellar writing and went back to introducing fresh ideas like the original.

Initially, since I loved the setting of Vekta, the change into Helghan made me kind of dislike it, but maybe that was the purpose. Anyways, yeah I agree with you about all of that. I thought Liberation was alright, and yeah, it did seem more in line with the original.

@NTM: Yes, I believe he was! There were some discussions on that a while back; but I am pretty certain that was him. Major Coats. "He spent three days inside the Big Ben clock shooting at anything that moved."

Yeah, exactly. When I went through it again today I heard that line which I didn't remember hearing originally, or it's one of the small things you don't really take notice of enough to memorize it. I mean, I kind of assumed it was him before, but when I heard that line today I kind of just treated that as reassurance.

I hope giantbomb does a quick look of it, or we at least hear what their opinions of it are. It was alright.

Also, I'm not sure if anyone else caught it, and it's not really about the ending DLC, but the end mission in general, but did anyone know that the guy with Anderson (the British guy) was the same guy in the original ME3 trailer? I noticed it the first time, but I never saw anyone else mention it, maybe it wasn't that important.
