Mass Effect: Stock Exchange

It's a good thing she didn't have a hungry cat.

Aw man, I was loving these Mass Effect comics D:
Poor Tali looks so excited and then Shepard sends that XD wow

I cant tell.... are those limes, or dextro-amino lemons? Im not sure you could even get limes in space. The import cost would make the Black Widow look cheap.

Why can't Shepard hold all those limes?

Well, it's the last part of the love affair until the rumored DLC comes out and we see which theories are right.

Why can't he hold all these feels?

Because we are all the feel.

In other words, we all know the feel if we actually wanted Bioware to give some effort to Tali's picture... or not reveal face at all, if they wanted it half-assed.

Stock photo for stock photo, I like it.

Haha love Tali's excited little pose in panel 2.

She isn't going to be giving me any pictures. I chose the Geth over the Quarian's and she committed suicide. Whats really bad is we did the horizontal hop in Mass Effect 2. And after we met in 3 she was giving me all sorts innuendo while she was alive.

Cute comic. I love Tali's excited pose in panel 2.

I remain one of those few people who actually isn't bothered by the whole "Stock photo" mess. I was actually a little dissapointed that they showed her face at all really, I liked the mystique my imagination brought to it, I guess it's kind of along the same lines as why I think women in more 'reserved' clothes are far sexier than those who walk around with it all hanging out.

I don't get it?

-M

:P Gotta say, while I've never fully understood the appeal of Tali that makes so many people fawn over her...but she DOES look incredibly cute in this comic. :3

Eh, it just seemed lazy to me, and the photoshopping done to the picture looked a little... well, weak. If they wanted to show her real face in the game, there was an awesome fan-made image done that one of the developers even touched up a bit. They should of just used that then given credit to the guy for it.

"Why can't I hold all these limes" is a stockphoto meme. It's a joke related to the fact that a picture of Tali is in ME3, and it's just a photoshopped stockphoto.

Same... I mean... I get that it probably has something to do with the stock photo... but... I don't get it.

Well, 'dem hips!' are a good place to start :P

In all seriousness though I think she's definitely one of the better written characters. She's flawed but still very likable, and the mask adds an air of mystery (or should I say 'added' -_-). All things considered though I'm more of a Liara man, or Garrus on the occasions where I happen to be a woman.

Why?
You could just have both.

Also, that apostrophe should not be there.

Good point I suppose, it is a touch lazy, and I can understand where people are coming from when they don't like the fact they used a stock photo. I guess I'm just more dissapointed that they showed her face at all. I mean they tease you with it on Rannoch, and I was almost cheering when they didn't show it then, and then the very next conversation with her is when she gives you the picture. It was a big "god damnit" moment for me.

Also this is completely off topic but whoever was behind changing the Captcha to Solve Media needs to be given a promotion, a raise, and a box of Turian Chocolate, just saying.

At first I didn't get it simply trying to see what the meaning was behind Shepard holding all those limes until I realized that the picture itself was a stock image with a few 'edits' lol just like Tali's original picture. Now I am laughing hard because I got it XD nice work. Also loving how you made Tali look excited in the 2nd panel.. she's my favorite and I romanced her in ME2 and ME3.

Sadly ... yeah *shakes fist at the ME3 ending*.

I understood what the joke was straight away, but I never knew that stock photo before now. Great, now I'm going to have to make one of myself at work holding lemons...

I'm with Liara through and through. I've done every possible romance option through all the games (cept for Kaiden...poor, poor Kaiden, he's the only crew member of the Normandy that has never gotten some "action" :P). But for my "canon" playthroughs, Liara ends up being my lover whether with FemShep or MaleShep. Personally I think her love story through the entire series is the best written of them all. Think about it: in ME 2, she's the only one that cared to look for you after the destruction of the Normandy, whether you romanced her in ME 1 or not. She gave you to Cerberus, but only because they told her they could bring you back! Sounds like she never gave up on you after you save her from the volcano.

The whole drama wasn't so much about the fact that they photoshopped a stock photo, but because that they did a really terrible job at it. If you look at her hand (the finger placement is completely different from the Quarian anatomy you see in the games, by the way) you can still see the 3rd knuckle from the ring finger.
That's why people accused Bioware of being lazy and such, because it looks like the creator was using photoshop for the first time in his life and did the whole thing in 15 minutes tops.

I don't get it.

...oh, it's a meme... uh huh... yeah, I suppose that its kind of funny in the way "arrow in the knee" was funny (i. e. not fuunny).

I'm Commander Shepard...

...and why can't I hold all these limes?

Thanks for the good laugh XD.

Serves Bioware right for being lazy after talking so much about how epic their will be.

You are being very insensitive to Quarian culture, Shepard. Their species have learned to adapt to their limitations, such as being identical to stock photo models and being unable to hold large number of limes.

In fact, I'm starting a petition to have the final panel of this strip changed. Also I donated money to cancer research so if you don't sign my petition you're essentially saying you like cancer.

OK, that was pretty funny; definitely got a laugh out of me! =D

I mean, I am not at all upset that they used a stock photo and just photoshopped it, and I still laughed. Was glad they showed her face at all.

Hehehe.

Saw this yesterday and loved it, although didn't get the entire Stock photo thing until today xD

Very well done.

Why can't I stop all these Reapers?

It is rather disappointing that Tali just got a stock photo for her reveal. Somewhat because I wanted the Quarian's to be more Alien. We already have human-faced aliens with the Asari...

I'm told, that's actually how you're supposed to get the photo. It pops up after she's offed herself, though I'm not sure where.

*sigh* Yknow, I didn't get it either at first, so I'm not gonna be a dick to you. Just... for future reference, try not to sound like such a... well... tool(?) when expressing that you don't get/like a joke.

Anyway, this should clear some things up.

Don't you just hate it when media use a meme punchline that you've never heard of?

Hell, I first thought it was Cole McGrath, which made even less sense.

Damn Shepard, you eat all those limes, you'll get a wicked bad tummy ache.
