well if shepard policed Gotham none of those problems would have happened because Shepard knows that a bullet in the head solves most every problem. Batman's villains come back because the city is to stupid to realize thaat they need to be executed. Your argument is invalid :P.

There are hundreds of superheroes who aren't afraid to stain their hand with blood.
Yet their work is never over.

Also : Dragon ball Z rule. You kill one villain and he'll become replaced by _Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger_ one :)

My point still stands. :)

Well in batman they come back because he won't kill them and this isn't dragon ball Z
MY point still stands.

Every protagonist of every heroic work of fiction needs some enemy. Otherwise there's nothing more to tell. This is universal rule appreciated by writers and designers alike.
Third installment of ME will mean the end for this franchise while on other hand Batman will probably fight with evil for long, long years...
...which by the way delivers next argument : BatMan fights countless enemies, both old and completely new, and Sheppard is "Reapers oriented bloodhound".

My point still stands. :D

Atleast Shepard can defeat his enemies who have destroyed every species since the beginning of time. Batman can't even defeat a stupid madman. plus by the amount of episodes and movies and comics batman should be dead. Shepard has a beginning middle and end.
My point still stands :P.

As i stated before :
- Emperor Joker
- Final crisis
Batman Saves f*ckin' REALITY. At least twice.
Reality isn't "jsut" universe - it's multidimensional collection of every possible universe, including Sheppard's. AHA ! :)

Batman can't even defeat a stupid madman.

This argument puzzles me everytime... :)

By the way - it's not Batman's fault that his enemies come back, you know. ;p

plus by the amount of episodes and movies and comics batman should be dead. Shepard has a beginning middle and end.

Sorry to break your heart, but...

Also, what argument is this ?

My point still stands :P.

No FWay ! Kneel before Batman ! Accept him as a true savior, superior in every sense to Sheppard ! ;)

both songs are amazing gavin. and now when i listen to one, i must listen to the other. good job

Superior in every sense eh? Batman couldn't do any of what Shepard can do,ok well some of it. What Shepard does requires killing and batman, well batman was scared(is that how you spell it ? sacred scarred?) for life and can't kill and is devastated when the joker dies in dracula(or somewhere else I won't spoil). Even with all the tech that Shepard has Batman would never be able to defeat the reapers. It would require him to kill because I think that batman would still be against it because they are sentient and you can't knock out a machine.
Plus What Shepard does is actually grounded in reality. While yes it does require the existence of element zero it is still more realistic than a simple mad man getting a hold of some wacky device that destroys reality. plus in arkham city batman doesn't defeat the jker, the joker defeats himself. Yes it is his fault his enemies keep coming back, if he would kill them gotham would go back to pre-batman peace.
But Batman is better at finding non-violent solutions than shepard but that is his weakness too seeing as he is so set to that goal that he will refuse to consider any others.

Forgive me this little manipulation of your word, but i feel that both what you say at the beginning and the end should be answered with this :

Batman isn't afraid of violence or bloodshed. He won't kill because he follows code of honor. He is THE KNIGHT after all. The symbol of courage and justice.
But is he afraid to use violence ?
Phuleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee. :)

Is he afraid to pull the trigger ?

Again : not at all.

You're mistaking strength of character with weakness. Resigning from easier, but bloody path is not the sign of weakness. To not succumb to darkness requires the self-control and strength of Jedi Master. :)

Speaking of strengths and weaknesses :

Could Shep do that ?
Even with all his happy crew - could he even hope to do that ? :)
By the way : you keep forgetting that Shep almost always is supported by his happy band of cosmic outlaws and outcasts while Batman often succeeds completely alone.

Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure. :D
"Comic superhero vs video game oversexed soldiah boy bloke" thread is as far from reality as politicians from honesty. Aliens, relay gates, Citadel Station, yeah, suuuuuuuuuuuuure.

The_Lost_King:

Yes it is his fault his enemies keep coming back, if he would kill them gotham would go back to pre-batman peace.

Actually... No.
It's the comic creators fault, because in the world of superheroes nothing really dies once and for all. Unless we are talking about more matured content, superheroes and villains die and return as ghosts, clones, reincarnations, zombies, cyborgs...

Once more : Don't forget that at the beginning of ME2 someone kicks the bucket too. :)

Gav can you do an article on Back in Time? I have been a fan of PoP since sands of time and the song you did about it was incredible.
Might I ask, in the lyrics you say "I went from white to black to grey, Over the course I lost my way". Is that a sneaky reference to the tonal shift of the trilogy and how the games started deteriorating?
Also what mode did you use?
