"There's a reason I don't date crew, Commander..."
Sure, Joker, that's why you skipped the crew and went straight for the ship. I'm still not sure whether to laugh or get goosebumps around these two. I mean, it's not that weird for a pilot to love his ship... but for the ship to reciprocate? That's some serious stuff. I love both of them though. I really hoped they (plus D&D engineering duo, who also makes a comeback) would both make it back to the game. And they did.
And they deserve a way better art than this. But oh well. I got myself two books on digital painting today, so I'll practice. Uncharted goes next. But after that, I'll probably come back to the Normandy. I loved the third game.
Even though this is not the ending I've chosen (I went with Control), I kind of liked it, too. Even though glowy-eyed Joker creeped the hell out of me. Unlike a lot of people, I'm not hating Bioware for the endings (they could've done better, I missed seeing what happened to the rest of the people I grew to like, but still). I was way too busy to think about computing capacity of an oak leaf to care about plotholes
And, to quote Joker's VA from some three years ago: "I've been jocking to get screen time with Tricia Helfer for a quite a while. I guess it's sad that our first couple in a video game is where she's a disembodied voice..."
Oh, ye of little faith, Seth Green, ye of little faith
... now I wonder... since they're both synthetic/organic now... shouldn't this be flagged with mature content? I mean, what if sparks are something really, really explicit from the AI point of view?
