So now that the Extended Cut is out and done with…
Day Twenty Six: Least Favourite Companion.
Jacob “The Priiiize” Taylor.
It’s not that he’s a bad guy, he’s just super boring. I don’t dislike the man, I can just never remember him. In a series full of interesting and awesome characters, he’s just yet another ME2 character with daddy issues. And that doesn’t make him unique at all because like half your ME2 squad has daddy issues.
Then he cheats on you in ME3 if you romanced him. Oh well. He’s still a bro I guess. I wouldn’t have minded Shepard heading to Rio to hit up that bar with him.
Day Twenty Seven: Opinions on the Genophage.
On one hand, I can understand why it was deployed. On the other, it’s horrible morally. It just depends on who I have alive during my playthroughs if I cure it or not.
Under Wrex, I could see the krogan actually working out their issues and becoming an allied Council race. Especially with Eve at his side, there’s really no reason not to cure the genophage; they paid for their mistakes, and for the most part this is a new generation of krogan.
Under Wreav, however, I’d be more hesitant. All he wants to do is conquer other worlds. He doesn’t seem to understand that aggression is what got his race sterilized in the first place. Even if you cure the genophage for him, there’s still a likely chance that the Council will still wipe out their race if they all survive the Reaper War.
But yeah, bad morally, sort of makes sense in a horrible way strategically.
