    The "I don't want to spook him. SLAM HEAD INTO TABLE!" scene was ridiculous.

    It looks like Deus Ex, if Deus Ex was 99% less intelligent and had 99% more testosterone instead. I know you have to please the lowest common denominator if you want to stay competitive, but was it really necessary to lobotomize thoughtful material like this?

    Remember the new shit trailer for DA?

    I'm hoping this is the same kind of deal.

    This woman's every spoken word is an attempt at a badass quote or something.



    What happened to regular conversation?

    Perhaps she is intended as comic relief? At any rate her lines made me laugh.

    It could be that she wants to sound tough, but isn't very good at it

    Yeah, they ditched the serious real-world feeling when they ditched Mitsoda. Now they are trying to go more for the campy over-the-top vibe. Hopefully, they will go far enough to make it entertaining.

    Maybe I'm completely wrong on this but, shitty though ME shooter part is, with more options like AP stealth crap, it just might be enjoyable. Add to that the cutscene collar grabs like in ME 2, which were admittedly fun on renegade, hey who knows.

    It's so incredibly cliche and poorly done that you can't tell if it's supposed to be tongue-in-cheek or not.

    Synthetic testosterone, surely.

    The biggest problem with AP is that the Jack Bauer options don't show well. Badass female Shepard is fun. Thorton appears to be lame.
