Pile of Shame Sunday - 25th July 2021

No, Tali. I'm pretty sure we don't know what you're talking about

The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Sunday to update readers on what Mark G has been up to with respect to finishing off games on his "Pile of Shame". The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 93%

I'm getting very close to completing Mass Effect 3 as I've just finished the Thessia mission. As is the case with this game, it's definitely worth giving a thought to who you bring on the missions since in the case of the Thessia one, Javik has some amusing remarks to make.

Also the Citadel DLC is one of the best DLCs I've ever played. It consists of huge fanservice for those that are fans of the Mass Effect series as you end up experiencing a buddy cop style adventure with almost all your old squadmates and there are a whole bunch of laugh-out-loud moments such as Shepard becoming self-conscious of his trademark "I should go..." farewell or when Wrex and Grunt start a dialogue with Shepard consisting of only their names (possibly a reference to how the conversations normally end between Shepard and his krogan squadmates). What I think is pretty cool too is you can pick up a Lancer assault rifle which doesn't rely on thermal clips, so it basically works the same way as the rifles from the original Mass Effect. Nice.

My only issue with the Citadel DLC is the fact you can start the mission and party before all squadmates are available. Apparently you're able to get Miranda to the party but since I started it before a certain point, she wasn't available. They probably should give some indication when is the best time to start the mission and the party so you're able to get everyone there.
