Eremiel:
SPOILER WARNING!!!!!

Dude, use spoiler tags please. This is one of the cooler bits in the entire game and you just posted it.

Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm not), but wasn't there a renegade option where you headbutted a Krogan chief? Moreover, didn't shepard both karate kick and subsequently punch out a Krogan mercenary on Omega?

'Cause I know he did when I played.

I melee krogans all the time. Plus pretty much everything else. (Charge is a useful power to get this done)
"Have you ever faced an Asari Commando Unit? Because with my biotic powers, I could destroy your mind with a thought! So don't-"
"Think fast then!" (Wham)

Main reason an enemy would respond badly to meleeing is armor. Generally a good idea to wear down most of their armor anyway.

Krogan seem to suffer from cut-scene weakness. Normally they are a forced to be reckoned with, but in cut-scenes they can easily be dispatched with a single bullet.

Something I think you should never try to do is use the Flamethrower heavy weapon from the DLC. It has so many problems. The first being that it's a short range weapon. If an enemy gets up close to you, you can whip out a shotgun or SMG quickly to deal with the new threat. But if you try to switch to the flamethrower you'll waste to much time switching weapons, resulting in you getting killed. So you can only use it for offense. But because it's a close range weapon, you have to walk up to the enemy and get riddled with bullets along the way. But even when you are close to an enemy, it still sucks because Shepard is knocked back when he takes melee, flame, or explosive damage. So trying to use it in close range usually just causes you to be knocked around a few times before dying.

Wasn't aware of'em and I DID post an all-caps "SPOILER WARNING!" with numerous exclamation marks. You could've just skipped it.

It wasn't a spoiler to me, because I have finished the game already. The spoiler tags are there because they're safer to use. Someone else could accidentally read your spoiler if you don't hide it.

why not?

Because they explode when you punch them to death.

I didn't even know about my fish until I spawned in the captains quarters after beating the game.

Oops.

Eh, I usually like taking my messages in my quarters anyway so they haven't starved on me yet.

I love the ship models too. If those are at all to scale then the SR-2 Normandy is HUGE (though judging from the model of the Destiny Ascension I'm guessing they're not).

Nice...

That CAIN nuke gun is awesome but I never can seem to find enough ammo for the damn thing. Maybe If I switched classes...right now I'm a vangaurd

This has got to be one of the most unfunny things Ive ever seen the escapist sponsor.

How about this TOP 5 things not to do on The escapist.

All 5 being STOP MAKING VIDEOS YOUR NOT FUNNY.

That said Im quite shocked "Having sex with Samaras daughter resulting in DEATH...." didnt make this sad list.

I have to feed the fish... well... not that i really care about them... but I'm still sad :(

HT_Black:

Yeah, that was fun. I'm playing Paragon pretty much exclusively at the moment, but I just couldn't resist doing that even though it's a Renegade action. It just felt right.

I've used melee on the odd varren (primarily in Grunt's loyalty mission), but that's about it. I guess my Shep just prefers ranged combat.

And yes, my fish keep dying. It makes me sad.

Distorted Stu:
I feed my fish regually :)

They should have made an achievement for that or include the fishes in the "keep your whole team alive" achievement :-D

Simalacrum:
Oh God, that last one reminded me of a certain song...

AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!

*run awaaaaaaayy*

You evil fiend! Now its suck in my head! IT IS IN MY HEAD!!! AAAAAAAARGH!!!

OT: Krogan + Pull + Charge = Frog-Bird! :D

Oh oops. Those fish die when you don't feed them?

<_<
>_>

Casual Shinji:
My question is: Why doesn't the frickin' space hamster starve? You don't feed it yet it's a live and kicking all through to the end.

What the hell is that thing living on?

It's a space hamster... It lives on space, and plus what would you have die, a space hamster, or fish. CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE NOW!

Forget Fish

SPACE HAMSTERS are where it's at!

Aardvark:
The Cain is the only gun since Doom that gave me that warm, fuzzy, giggly, "I just fuckslapped the fuck out of that fuck" that the BFG gave me. Some have come close, but none have matched it.

You sir.... you sir have given me a new word.

Fuckslap.

I...love you man.

Wait, if you're completely out of any and all fuel, how exactly are you powering that superluminal propulsion system? Do you throw your fish into the reactor or what?

Considering how well Bioware handles some of their little details, I was actually expecting something more climatic happening if you ran out of fuel with no minerals. Imagine a short mission playing out where you had to fight off Batarian slavers who find your ship adrift.

Your fish dying was also a incredibly weird moment too. I took me back to being a little kid who forget to feed your pet. It was very much a "oh yeah I have to feed those to keep them alive", but what made it weird was that you didn't need to do any other remedial tasks other then airing out your enemies heads.

Hahaha, totally agree on the fish. The space hamster doesn't die, neither should the fish. Especially considering how sad the tank looks empty.

I've done two of those things, which I don't know what that says.
I've meleed multiple Krogan's to death, and I got to watch the equivalent of a slow motion trainwreck when I pressed the dance button...
In other news, this video was the first I have ever heard of having fuel, which I guess is good. Better now then when I start needing fuel. (I got it two days ago, and haven't played too much)

yeah but they don't kill you unless your low on health...
that's why you go invis :P (or that's what i did... but i just liked punching stuff)

Bioware wants to preserve the spirit and memory of Boo, I would guess.

Pardon my stupidity, but who/what is Boo?

It's a reference to Baldur's Gate. There was a character who had a pet hamster named Boo. He claimed that Boo was a "miniature giant space hamster", which is another reference back to the AD&D campaign Spelljammer.

Curse you Slycne! Now I will accedentally call the space hamster Boo even though I named him Wilbur D:

Ok everybody! It's time to do THE SHEPARD! Just shuffle from side to side in awkward and embarrassing fashion! It's so cool and everyone in the club will take notice of your sexy dance moves!

Seriously, I know the dancing isn't integral to the game, but they could at least give Shepard some better moves in the sequel.

Or at least change from his combat armor and weapons to his casual clothes. I think 1/2 of what makes it so awkward is the outfit.

I forgot to feed my fish >.< made me sad when I remembered them and had to clean em out. i wonder what happens if you run out of fuel, minerals, and can't afford to buy more gas....hmmm

This wasn't funny. ... Sorry for being honest.

uh oh....
I danced...

lol Shepard's dancing is worse than mine XD

i may have done all but run out of fuel....

I think you should give a special mention to no probing Uranus, in the eternal words of EDI, "Really Shepard?"
