Game Theory - Mass Effect 2: Zombie Shepard
We unearth the mysteries behind Mass Effect's Lazarus Project to see just how close we are to reanimating the dead, uncovering a potential plot twist for Mass Effect 3.
I love how you predicted the plot to Mass Effect's Citadel DLC! I won't spoil it but it definitely solves this plot hole.
Wonder game theory, I'm a mobile apps developer and would like to say that the mobile game development has acquired a cast area of expertise in the field of games.
Well, I guess that latter part does make more sense as we're still talking about the future.
Thats not how i meant it. You take the datafiles and project them for the person maybe. Use pictures, somehow make sure that anything written is translated for the brain. Or synthetic parts could be added to the brain to let the brain translate digitalised data.
You say datafiles... that's not really how a normal human brain works. How do you make this "data" work with an ordinary brain?
You could go into datafiles and find records of past events and simulate memories. It could be hard to make detailed memories that would replicate a persons exact actions and interactions during the events, but the person would still have memory of what happened.
How, exactly? Can you explain this to me scientifically?
But the memories can be recreated.
You can replicate a brain but not the memories.
Good point but remeber he hadn't played ME3 yet.
Ya, stem cells are bad ass but no one seems to care enough to do something about it... FFS the damn thing can cure cancer and people are still dying from it every years.
There is one thing you have forgotten about. You have looked into past science for the answer, but you havent conscidered looking into future science. We dont know what they are capable in the future. They could have cloned Shepards brain, or as you can find out in ME3, Shepards brain survived enough for Cerberus to restore it. So what do we know?
It could be a cloned body but still the real Shepard if they installed a previously backed up brain scan from him.
Plus, just because it's a leak doesn't mean that he was instantly exposed to zero pressure, could've been a slow leak.
...and what raydal said.
Mass Effect 3 states that the brain survived enough for them to restore the original brain, apparently their science fiction technology works fictionally, Shepherd isn't a fake. :)
It's sailor Venus, not Mercury -> Mercury is blue
Alchera the planet that shepard was falling to at the end of the prologue is a low density carbon/frozen water with a atmosphere of methane and ammonia with a atm of 0.83 of earths and at the end of the prologue it is visible that shepard was entering the atmosphere which would have kept his blood from boiling. the impact into the planet would have been softened due to the planets density and as explained in the mortal combat episode of game theory shepard's body would of almost snap froze at -22C forming little to no ice crystals which would have aloud the lazarus project to be successful
What...Commander Shepard is a clone and not a zombie? Nooooooooooooooooooooooo...
Nice vid by the way. I know some of the Bonus answers but I'm sure that others have already stated them.
Damn... When you said what happened to him, one of the first conclusions I came to was Cloning, dood... Beat me to the punch though... /sadpuppyface/ Oh & just as a bonus titbit, an organic body (Human or otherwise) can survive in space without protection (Like a suit) for roughly 40 secs to a minute, with no ill effects at all... I believe the chances of surviving in this circumstances is... 10 to the power 17 thousand... or something like that, dood...
Following up from my previous comment, during one of the last missions of ME3 you find out a little more about what happened when they found you.
"The Helmet kept the brain intact -- For whatever good that would do."
Yes, but you forgot that the radiation would wreak all sorts of havoc on the body. Even INSIDE of the ship, modern astronauts prefer to sleep in the energy storage, or "battery" room, as the lead in the battery actually stops some of the radiation from hitting them, temporarily relieving the constant headaches caused by prolonged exposure to radiation. So no matter what that suit had on it, it probably can't match the radiation shielding provided by an entire ship.
My apologies, sir, but you're argument is, dare I say, invalid. Here, have a pear.
