"Happy 40th. Back up in that ass with the mass affection" is not a sentence I was expecting to hear.

The quarian homeworld totally still exists. A lot of quarian culture is an expy of Jewish diaspora stuff, down to a lot of toasts and blessings revolving around seeing the homeland again someday.

I hope they do Vermire before doing more side quests. These past couple of episodes have been a drag.

@beartaco: it's kind of interesting to watch because I skipped pretty much all of this stuff. But it does confirm that it was the correct decision.

Me too, sounded like from the beginning of the episode though that they're going to continue on soon enough.

Vinny has forgotten his time with ME3 if he thinks the Quarian homeworld is destroyed.

Ever check out Baskin? It's kind of the Turkish surreal horror version of Hellraiser. It probably falls that extreme territory.

Just a heads up for Virmire:

When you see the geth Juggernaut charging you (it'll be alone), remember you can lift.

The Quarian homeworld is definitely not destroyed. It's kind of a thing in ME3, Vinny.

I think this is the second time now that Alex said "They call me The Trooper" and I immediately get confused because it reminds me of The Who's "The Seeker", but it's mixed with Iron Maiden's "The Trooper". These are two songs that already get scrambled in my head for some reason I don't understand.

In Mass Alex, the Endurance Run goes to space!

It's not a good sign for the franchise.

This is the one in the series I didn't play, so this has been super interesting so far. I do have to say that from what I have seen, ME 2 seems so superior that I'm glad Alex is teh one going back to play this for me.

Does anyone have the footage of the drone following the race car they were talking about? Sounds really neat and I can't find it (I think) on google.

I remember when 2 came out and how disappointed I was with the way they corrected (quite valid) complaints about the first one (inventory management, Mako exploration, poor map layouts), as they simply removed those aspects instead of improving upon them and focused on cover based shooting instead.

It could've been done better but some of those things, along with the strong mainline story, made me appreciate the original game a lot.
Ultimately it was probably the right way to go; at least they finally nailed the combat in 3.

Alex hasn't even gotten to the meat of 1's story yet, hurry up :p

The guys mention the Purge series of movies. I've always preferred the Binge series myself. There's a lot to take in, there.

Someone please tell me Alex levels up by the end of this. He's been sitting on two levels now and this video only has 25 mins left. Please level up Shep Shep and friends. Vinny help please!

Sorry, seeing the flashing Squad option every time they look at the map or save is constantly poking at me.

This has been kinda bugging me since day one.

@Alex - You can use the jump jets when you're in the mako to avoid rockets and laser shots.

It takes a little bit of timing but it will save you from taking so much damage in the mako missions.

They better do Virmire in this episode. I don’t know how many more generic missions on generic planets I can take anymore.

I don't know if this has been posted before, but jumping over the geth missiles is the easiest/cheapest way to deal with them. Wait till they fire at you while you are on the ground, then just jump the make when they get close. You will sail right over the shot. Rinse/Repeat.
