      A Nice Look At.... Mass Effect 3 The Extended Cut Endings

      4 years ago

      TIME FOR BACKSTORY:  Mass Effect is my favorite action/rpg series. When I first heard of Mass Effect, I dismissed it as a typical sci-fi rpg, with the tedious quest, repetitive combat, and blah blah blah. But then my good friend showed me some gameplay footage on his PC back in high school, and then I played the PS3 demo of Mass Effect 2, and I was impressed! The gameplay was what really blew my expectations, along with the narrative, dialogue, and customization options for Shepard. Oh, and the rpg options were also really good, I mean i find myself being immeresed in the world of Mass Effect, even customizing my armor, ammo, and powers. The squadmates were really interesting (Garrus and Tali are my favorites). Mass Effect 2 was my favorite game in the franchise, though I was a little put off with how the rpg elements were streamlined, the game was basically a gift from the gods. And so, like most fans I was hyped for Mass Effect 3, when the reapers finally arrived.

      www.youtube.com/watch

       

      I was in London, the final mission in ME3. Just as I had killed more Banshees with my Vangaurd Shepard, the time came for us to reach the Crucible. Dodging all the blasts from Harbinger, getting knocked out, confronting The Illusive Man, and then sitting down with Admiral Anderson in his final breaths. Then we hear Admiral Hackett say this: "Shepard, nothings happening."

      Immediately I thought "Well what's more to this?" as I see Shepard rise on a platform and meets the Godchild thing ghost memory.com who explains he started the Reapers to kill us to save us from our synthetics. And then I thought..."Dafuq??". Bewildered, I saw the choices I was given: Destroy all synthetics, Control them, or achieve Synthesis (I chose synthesis, more on that later). After watching Joker manuveur the Normandy away from the blast (which destroys the Mass Relays), it ends with him and your squadmates crash landing on an alien planet, with ALL THE MASS RELAYS DESTROYED mind you, and then it clips to black. I immediately got up and said: "Thats it???". 

      Yes like most of you, I too was dissapointed with how Mass Effect 3 originally ended. I couldn't stop thinking about it for a while. What about everything I did in the previous games? What about my war assets? What the hell was up with all the plot holes??? The greatest insult to us, the player, is the ending message after the credits. Oh yeah, you guys remember that?

      Why would I if it wouldn't affect the ending in any way, shape, or form???

      We all know about EA and its business practices. I'm not sure if Bioware is fully to blame, but EA is the #1 culprit here. Telling us to buy DLC when we all know its going to end badly? Why should we continue to waste our hard-earned money on something as pointless as this? There is a reason why EA was named The Worst Company. And now, for the Extended Cut

      The Incodtrination Theory

      I was dissapointed with how ME3 originally ended (though never in my right mind has it ever occured to me to ever complaing to the FTC (seriously who would ever do that...oh yeah)). I knew they were going to do something about it though. They couldn't just ignore everyone and their mothers about this. Most of the time, I would see fans posting videos of the Indoctrination Theory. I think the best known has to be this one: 

      www.youtube.com/watch

      I admit, I was intrigued with the Indoctrinaion Theory. Not only does it show how creative fans can be, but it almost seems legitimately true. In fact, after seeing this, and hearing that Bioware will address the ending, I was actually hoping that they would go the route of the Indoctrination Theory. But alas, it was never meant to be unfortunately. 

      Reaction Towards The Extended Cut

      After the Extended Cut was released, I decided to see for myself. And, for the most part, I'm happy with how the EC turned out. Yeah it wasn't exactly  what I was hoping for, but it really did address some of the plot holes and did give closure to the state of the galaxy after the choices you've made, and it gave me a reason to start playing ME3 again. Still, I was dissapointed the Bioware didn't go through with the Indoctrination Theory; if they did, it would've been one of the greatest twists in writing that I've ever seen.  It would've given the story much more depth and suspense than what was originally intended. Why Bioware didn't go throught with it is anyone's guess. 

      The Starchild and The Final Choices

      I hate you so much right now

      One of the biggest criticisms of the ending is the Starchild. It is never explained what it truly is and why it takes the form of the child that was killed on Earth at the beginning of the game. Also, in the original ending, he explains the purpose of the Reapers in probably the most bullshit way in the existance of mankind (stop me if you've seen this one before -_-)

      Well said Xzibit, well said. 

      In the EC ending, you're given more dialogue choices that explains more about his origins as well as the Reapers. Afterwards, you come across your choices: Destroy, Control, and (if your EMS is high enough) Synthesis. People have complained about all of these endings and the ethics of each of them. I chose synthesis in my initial playthrough so as to save the geth and EDI. I later chose Destroy because, honestly, I liked the idea of Shepard surviving. In the EC ending, you are given the choice of shooting the starchild in the face (which is sorf of satisfying) and the Refusal ending, where Shepard can refuse the 3 choices, leaving the Galaxy doomed.We later see a hologram of Liara giving a message  to future races to stop the Reapers. I thought these changes were pretty good and was happy with what i was given for the most part. 

      Closure

      This still doesn't forgive what you did with Tali's face!!!!

      Closure is the one thing fans have demanded, and the EC does provide closure....mostly. However, I thought the EC did bring enough closure to the series. We see the krogan giving birth to children in the end and rebuilding Tuchanka and colonizing other worlds (that is, if you actually helped Mordin cure the genophage). In the Control and Synthesis endings, we see the Geth and Quarians rebuilding the homeworld, as well was as Quarians without masks (again depending on your choices, and we still see the Quarians wearing hoods....with their backs turned >:l). One of the biggest things that was fixed was the Mass Relays. In each ending it is stated that, instead of being totally destroyed, they are simply damaged but can still be repaired. I thought that was great! NO MORE BEING STRANDED ON A PLANET!! 

      However, if there was one thing I really didn't like about the EC, is that we never see our war assets in action. I was really hoping to see the Batarians leading an assault, an army of Geth Troopers killing Ravagers, the Rachni taking down a Brute, or Geth Primes fighting off Banshees. Why have us looking for War Assets if we don't see them in action? It would've been great seeing them help out the troops in London!

      So that was A Nice Look At Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut Ending. How do you feel about the ending yourselves? Did you enjoy them or viewed it as an abomination to mankind? Leave your thoughts below.

      5 Things That are Wrong With Mass Effect 3's Multiplayer

      4 years ago

       Now before we start, I want to clarify something first: I enjoy playing the multiplayer mode in Mass Effect 3. Its fun, enjoyable, and is pretty competent overall. Like i said, there are a few problems that players might encounter while playing the game.  I'm gonna narrow them down to 5. Now remember, I'm just gonna list them, but i'm not gonna dictate which is worse.

       

      #5: The N7 Ranking

      For those of you who don't know, each multiplayer user has an associated N7 Ranking. The ranking serves as an indicator of players' overall level of experience with the game, and is calculated by adding together the player's level in each class, plus 10 for each character that player has promoted. The thing is, what is the purpose of this? Other than appearing on your screen, it really doesn't affect gameplay at all. There is no increase in damage or powers, both of which are upgraded in the game in between matches. It serves no purpose other than showing everyone else that you've been playing for a while. Its like having a Franklin badge that has no power in Earthbound. It looks pretty, but its useless. 

       

      #4: The Galactic Readiness System

      Galactic Readiness and the Galaxy at War systems dictate the percentage of how much of your war assets will be used at the end of the single-player campaign, which also dictates the state of Earth depending on the ending you've chosen (I'll get into the ME3 ending soon). What's very annoying is that the percentage would go down everytime you turn off your console, forcing you into playing a few multiplayer matches to increase your rating again so you can see the "secret" ending. Prior to the release of the EC ending, the amount of war assests needed for this ending was 4100; afterwards, it has been decreased to 3100, rendering the Galactic Readiness entirely redundant. 

       

      #3: Reusing the Same Maps from the Single-Player Campaign 

       Fire Base Ghost

      The Same Map from The Side-Quest Benning: Evidence

       

      Though this is kinda nitpicking, prior to the releases of all the multiplayer dlc, the maps that were featured in the multiplayer are simply reused areas from sidequests in the single-player campaign. They get really old and boring, and displays a lack of creativity. Fortunately there have been more original maps that have been released with the Rebellion, Resurgence, and Earth packs to give more variety. 

       

      #2: Glitches galore

      Glitches are a bane in several online multiplayer games, and Mass Effect 3 is no exception. One notable issue was with already unlocked kits, characters, and items that are being locked again, typically after switching kits, along with the zoom-out glitch in one specific map. Another bug occasionally happens when you are playing as a Vangaurd; by using Charge immediately before getting knocked out. It will cause the player to glitch heavily during movement, float several feet above the ground, before getting stuck either right underneath the map or several hundred feet above the ground. There is also the Invincible enemy glitch, where the grabbing animation behind cover doesn't occur, and the enemy appears beside you, invincible to all attacks. Though some of these glitches have been fixed, others are still, as Mordin would say, problematic. 

       

      #1: The Roulette-based Item Store

      An annoying system that constantly gives you random items or characters, regardless of whether or not it is what you want or is something that you rarely even use.  Depending on the pack you purchase, even the most expensive pack in the MP can only give you weapon upgrades instead of weapons themselves, or constantly getting bonus xp and customization options for a character you don't even use instead of actually unlocking a character, and even then, you might be dissapointed when it unlocks a character you don't want. All in all, its more a gamble than anything else, requiring more luck than skill.

       

      So that concludes my list of the worst things about Mass Effect 3's Multiplayer Mode. What do you guys think? Oh, and I will give a quick look at the EC endings next time.

      NinjaRed64: REVEALED

      4 years ago

       

      Favorite Game Franchise (yeah you knew this was coming)

      Seriously, what were you expecting? You can literally say i was born into the Mario series. No joke! From what my mother said, i was still in her womb while my older sister would play the original Super Mario Bros.  My mom would go crazy because of the sound fx! She believed her disdain for all things gaming would pass on to me....... AND YET HERE I AAAMMM!!! Yeah basically i grew up playing the Mario series, from SMB and SMB3, to Super Mario 64 on the, you guessed it, N64, to NSMB on the DS, and finally to today playing  Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2. So as you would guess, i was and still am, a Mario fan.

      Favorite Game Company/Publisher

      i might as well get this out of the way right now. From what you would've all guessed, me being a Mario fan also means being a Nintendo fan, right? 

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1W7c8QghPxk&list=FLDOwUar-KVQ9iKG4O1Jh4YA&index=183

      My parents rarely got me NES games back then. However, my favorite uncle (whom i consider a second father) would get me any game I wanted as a gift. So thanks to him, i was exposed to The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Tiny Toons Adventures, to name a few. To this day i continue to love Nintendo, and currently i'm kinda anxious for the Wii U. But as I got older, my tastes in gaming started to branch out a little....

      Second Favorite Game Company/ Publisher

      Yeah.... though Sony didn't become the next best thing in my life until '08, it actually entere my life back in '97. At around the time i got my N64 (my reaction wasn't as extravagant as the N64 kid), my sister had already gotten the Sony Playstation. In 2008, my sister's husband gave a Playstation Portable, and later a PS3, where i now play God of War, Uncharted, Resistance, Tekken 6, Super Street Fighter 4, and the like. Still,  i fondly remember playing all the games on the demo disc; Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Parappa (is that how you spell his name?), and last but definitely not least...... 

      TOMB RAIDER!!! Yes, my sister was a huge fan of the series, and I enjoyed watching her play the game, since i was too young to understand the gameplay mechanics until much later.  But the main game that really cemented my new fascination with Playstation is.....

      Favorite Fighting Game Series

      Oh hell yes!!! After moving to my current home back in 1999, my cousin, who lived across the street an is just as old as my sister, would bring over Tekken 2 so that i can play with him. Being a kid, he would let me win, but just playing the game was fantastic. However, it wasn't until he brought over Tekken 3 when i truly got into it. That was the game that instantly had me hooked onto the franchise for good. I played the original Tekken in its arcade format, and yeah Tekken 2 was a good game as well, but Tekken 3 was what really got my interest. T3 is by far my favorite game in the series, as well as my favorite game overall. Tekken 4 was meh, 5 was great, and 6 was ok but could've been better (though the juggle system seems a little out of hand, but thats just me), but none could beat the pure shock and awe i felt after playing Tekken 3. Don't get me wrong, i also enjoy other fighting games, including Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, Super Smash Bros., King of Fighters, and recently Blaz Blue. Mortal Kombat is also good, but i'm not entirely invested into that series, and i don't like Dead or Alive (sorry  DOA fans). 

      Top 5  Favorite Tekken Characters

      #5: Lars Alexsandersson

      Sure his overall style may seem silly, with his Super-saiyanjin-like hair, but he really is a decent character with a great fighting style. With swift moves and decent combo opportunities, Lars is a worthy successor as the series protaganist. Plus, i mean come one, you gotta give him credit for his sweet armor (yes i am a fan of armored suits, they're significantly better than rubber suits with nipples.... egh)

      #4: Kazuya Mishima

      Kazuya, to me, is one of the more unique fighting game characters. I mean he started off as a generic fighting game hero, but come his appearance in Tekken 2, i was shocked to see how much of a villain he became. He is all around a badass, and his fighting style is pretty good to master.

      #3: Jin Kazama

      Jin Kazama is another character that i also felt went through great development. Though yeah his conquest for war in Tekken 6 put me off, considering how much of a tragic hero he was (though he does, in a way, redeem himself in the end), he is still one of the better characters in the game. His original style in Tekken 3 was good, but say what you will about is move change in Tekken 4, because i absolutely love it. He felt much more original, and did give a great idea of what karate is supposed to be (even though his style does not exist). in my opinion, if he had kept his original style, he probably would've felt more and more like Kazuya or Heihachi. Good thing it was given to Devil Jin, with his ability to fly and shoot lasers and such. 

      #2: Hwoarang

      Yeah, yeah, call him a spammer all you want, but Hwoarang's gameplay and style is overall great, at least to me. Honestly, the reason i like him so much is not just because of how he is handled, but because i see a bit of myself in him. Though i enjoy Japanese culture (be it its customs, weaponry, and martial arts), my primary fighting style is Taekwondo, and Hwoarang shows this off rather well. I was originally gonna go with Baek Do San, but Hwoarang's youth allowed me to relate to him more. 

      #1: Yoshimitsu

      The first Tekken character i have ever played is in the Tekken arcade cabinet is Yoshimitsu. He is everything i enjoy in a character: he's a ninja (though a rather unorthodox one), wears great suits of armor in most games (my favorite being his Tekken 3 suit, as seen above), helps the poor (and having grown up poor, this means a lot to me), enjoys video games and the internet as much as any of us g1's (as stated in the Tekken 3 manual), is partially a cyborg (cyborg ninjas are always cool), and finally, HE HAS A FRAGGIN AWESOME SWORD!! In fact, the instance when i saw he had a sword in Tekken 1, i knew i was gonna love him. Throw in some pretty awesome kicks, great combo opportunities, and some sweet teleportation  and flying abilities, and you have a pretty awesome ninja, though he may need some help in the stealth department (his interactions with Raven are among my favorite moments)

      Favorite System

      To be honest, I wasn't sure what my favorite system was. I was stumped between my NES, Gamecube, and my PS3. But then i realized something: the Nintendo 64 was the first video game system i legitly owned, for myself. The NES and Playstation both belonged to my older sister. I guess nostalgia is a powerful thing right? Yeah, i still recall the day i first popped in Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, Mario Tennis, and especially Mario Party.

      Games I play that are underrated (at least in my opinion)

      Sonic the Hedgehog was a series i didn't get into until i was in the 4th grade. Now when i say underrated, specifically i'm talking about the Gamecube ports of the Adventure games (Sonic Adventure 2: Battle and Sonic Adventure DX), Sonic Heroes, and Shadow the Hedgehog. Despite the flaws (and perceived flaws that others seem to point out), i had lot of fun playing these games, and i still do.... though the voice acting is a bit grating, but thats me nitpicking. Each of those games had great level design, good gameplay, and some of the best video game soundtracks i've ever heard.  In regards to Shadow the Hedgehog, i understand the displeasure of weapons being used in the game, but since its Shadow, I really didn't mind. If it were Sonic himself on the other hand, then yeah I'd go apeshit over it as well. But like i said, i had a lot of fun playing those Sonic games, and i do not regret ever getting any of them. I didn't play any of the Genesis games until i was 11, when my friend brought over Sonic Mega Collection, largely because i never owned a Sega Genesis. True, other Sonic games are garbage (Sonic '06 still makes me cry at night), but the Gamecube games i mentioned are my favorites, despite what other people say. Speaking of consoles i never owned...

      Top 3 Consoles I Never Owned but Wished I Did

      #3: The Sega Genesis

      The Sega Genesis is a console i completely missed purely out of ignorance. I was too young to know it even existed!!!! Back then i thought only Nintendo and Playstation were the main console giants!! I didn't even know of the Sega Genesis until 1999, when my friend invited me over to his house to play Streets of Rage. However, my parents refused to get me one, since i already had my N64. 

      #2: The Super Nintendo

      Ok this isn't so much ignorance, but more of bad timing. I knew what a Super Nintendo was back in '97, I mean used to play Earthworm Jim and Super Mario Kart over at my best friend's house. The thing was, the N64 had already been released, so yeah..... but hey, i recently downloaded...... an SNES.......emulator......on my laptop........... please don't hurt me Stuttering Craig e_e

      #1: The Sega Dreamcast

       

      Now here is a sad story: when the Dreamcast was announced, I was as excited as a fat guy in a candy shop!!! But, of course I had a hard time convincing my parents to get me one. But then in 2006, my dreams have come true.....sort of. My brother-in-law gave me his own working Dreamcast (not just a Dreamcast, but the Sport Black Dreamcast!!!!). I could see it then; Marvel vs. Capcom 1 and 2, Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, and Street Fighter 3 Third Strike in my room!!!! But then tragedy struck..... my father threw it out.......... (demonic roar). He claimed that I never played it, even though I DIDN'T HAVE ANY GAMES FOR IT YET!!!!  When I told him this, he realized his mistake, but it was already too late. The trash had already been picked up. Alas, so close yet so far :.(.....

      Most Hours Spent Playing

      Possibly my favorite action/rpg, I had so much fun playing Mass Effect 2. I had the PS3 version of the game, though I have played the original Mass Effect on my brother-in-law's Xbox 360 (which he let me borrow, and no its not a console I wished I owned. Sorry Xbox fans), and am currently playing  Mass Effect 3. The reason I got the PS3 version was because 1. I gave back the Xbox, 2. I didn't want to go through the hassle of switching discs, and 3. It had more content. The last time I checked, the most amount of hours i spent playing Mass Effect 2 was around 49 hours...... in about 8 PLAYTHROUGHS!! Thats 4 campaigns as a custom male Shepard and 4 with Femshep. Of those 4 male Shepards, 2 were New Games Plus with a Soldier, and 2 New Game Plus with Vangaurd. The same can be said with my Femshep, 2 as Vangaurd first, and 2 as a Soldier. Thats 392 HOURS!!! 

      Favorite Handheld Game

      My first handheld was a Gameboy Advance, then a Nintendo DS, and, for a short time, a PSP. It was hard deciding what handheld game was my favorite, so I'm giving you a lot!!!

      What Do I Do Aside From Gaming?

      Aside from gaming, I enjoy leisurly things like walks in the park. I am a big fan of comics, especially DC, with these guys being my favorite DC heroes:

      Superman stands out as my absolute favorite of the three, but the other two are just as badass. Still, I'm not entirely restricted to DC. I also enjoy Marvel comics, with these guys standing out as my favorites as well

      Yeah they're all awesome, though I prefer DC overall. I also enjoy anime/ and manga, with Bleach and Dragonball Z standing out as my favorite shows of all time. Azumanga Daioh is fraggin' hilarious, Sailor Moon is a bit of a guilty pleasure (well this is referring to back when i was young, but hey, what little boy wasn't a fan of Sailor Moon?)

      What about music?

      In case you didn't read my description, I listen to a lot of heavy metal and hard rock, largely because I grew up listening to AC/DC, Aerosmith, Santana, and Pink Floyd with my dad. My cousins also introduced me to other heavy metal bands, most notably these guys: 

      OH HELL YEAH \m/ ^_^\m/. Metallica stands out as my favorite heavy metal band of all time, introducing me to the most complex song writing and structure there is. These bands also introduced me to other bands, including Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Motley Crue, Motorhead, and Scorpians. One of my friends introduced me to Avenged Sevenfold in my senior year of high school. I have to admit, at first they didn't impress me at first, but then they grew on me, and i now consider Avenged Sevenfold one of the greatest metal bands out there. I also listen to old school hip-hop and old pop songs (like Michael Jackson, may God Bless his soul). I don't like screamo bands. Also, to be honest, i don't like most of the contemporary music that people listen to these days. If you like them, then you are entitled to your opinion. Its just that, to me, today's music just doesn't have all the complexities of older songs, and that they lack the heart and soul poured into what they do. But enough about what I think. I also enjoy listening to classic video game BGMs, especially 8-bit music. 

      Favorite Action Star

      My personal hero. Watching Jackie Chan performing stunts that seem super human, it is truly spectacular. My father and i would also (and continue) to watch many of Chan's best movies. Both hilarious and dramatic, my absolute favorite Chan films are Wheels on Meals and Dragons Forever, where he delivers his absolute best fight scenes, along with his "brothers" from the Opera school he attended, Yuen Biao and Sammo Hung. 

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&list=FLDOwUar-KVQ9iKG4O1Jh4YA&v=oy6Em-2uFJo

      Favorite Kid's TV Show

      Yup.The Power Rangers. Specifically my favorite seasons are the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo, In Space, and Time Force. As corny as this show was, i absolutely loved it as a child, and i still watch a few action clips on Youtube every once in a while. Sure the characters started off bland (they do get better), and Disney nearly butchered them (i stopped watching after Wild Force, though RPM was ok), but what really got me hooked was the action; the fight scenes, great depictions of martial arts, and epic weaponry, this show had me buying all of their toys and sucking my parent's wallet dry. Speaking of action, this show is the main reason why i enjoy martial arts, and why i'm a martial artist right now.  None of that Adventure Time crap for me, because ITS MORPHIN' TIME!!

      Anything Else?

      Oh yeah.... I'm also a 2nd degree black belt in taekwondo. You saw my black belt in my header. And i did mention this earlier.

      Top 10 Video Game Guns to Own in Case of a Zombie Apocalypse

      4 years ago

       #10: The M-920 Cain

      Talk about heavy fire! The M-920 Cain is probably the most powerful heavy (pun fully intended) weapon in Mass Effect 2. This badass gun fires  high-explosive rounds that is applied to a 25-gram slug that produces a devastating effect. I mean it produces a mushroom cloud and takes out almost every enemy in the area! Hell, its even labeled a "Nuke Gun" with good reason. Unfortunately, it consumes a lot of heavy ammo, so knowing when to use it is key. Also, it only appears at the end of Mass Effect 3, which is kind of a bummer. 

      #9: The Portal Gun

      The Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, or Portal Gun if you're lazy like me, is probably one of the most original weapons i've ever seen. Producing entrance and exit portals throughout the place during ingenius puzzles is great fun, i would definitely like to play around with it.It would be higher on the list, but it doesn't exactly deal damage, instead relying on clever tactics with protals. Also, its inability to work on certain tiled floors, metal, any kind of prop, doors or windows (which is kinda pointless thinking about it) is a bit of a set back, so if zombie try to bust through a door, the floor and ceiling better not be reinforced with steel. Now if only it came with those feet suppressors Chel has. I Can't risk breaking my legs. 

      #8: The Auger Mk. II

      Appearing in Resistance 2 and 3, the Auger Mk II has a pretty cool ability to detect the thermal signatures of enemies and the ability to shoot through walls. And if thats not cool enough, it comings with a fraggin' shield!!! Hell YEAH!! Though the shield won't last long, it does provide ample amounts of defense and can damage to any zombie who touches it. 

      #7: The Gravity Gun

      Appearing in Half-Life 2, and considered Gordon Freeman's signature weapon, the gravity gun can be used to lift and shoot heavy objects (be it cars, trucks, giant slabs of concrete) at incoming zombies. However, the gun is really heavy, and requires the HEV suit in order to carry it with ease. 

      #6: The Leichenfaust 44

      The Leichenfaust 44 (translated as Corpse Fist, which sounds pretty awesome) from the Wolfenstein series, is an example of the Nazis' experiments with the Black Sun Dimension. Created in the Castle of Isenstadt, it fires a glob of energy that, on contact, detonates, disintegrating most any target, and levitating everything within its blast radius for a few seconds. This weapon is badass, but its scarce ammo is a problem, and like the Cain, each shot must be taken with precision and care, mainly when there is a horde of zombies coming your way.  

      #5: The Mk. II Lancer

      You know what's more badass than a gun? How about a gun with a fraggin' chainsaw on it?!?! The staple weapon of the COGS appearing in Gears of War 2, the Mk. II Lancer is an upgrade to the Mk I with more accuracy, less recoil, and more ammunition. Even if you run out of ammo, just sawing a zombie in half is probably the most satisfying (and bloody, don't forget bloody) moment you'll ever experience. Though i'm more a fan of guns that turns into swords, I'll make an exception to this rule with the Mk. II Lancer. 

      #4:  The Devastator

      A rapid fire rocket launcher? Sign me UP!! The Devastator from Duke Nukem 3D fires rockets with the firing rate of a machine gun. DAMN!! Considered the most powerful weapon in the game (sadly the same can't be said in multiplayer), it launches 2 rockets everytime the player fires it. Because of this, I might chew up its amount before i'm done killing down zombies. Crap

      #3: The Minigun (a.k.a Sasha)

      The Primary weapon of The Heavy from Team Fortress 2, its an enormous Gatling-style machine gun capable of tearing down hordes of zombies who dare to get too close. Spitting out rapid fire slugs, this is a must have for anyone planning on surviving  a zombie apocalypse

      #2: The BFG

      The infamous, and arguably most powerful weapon of the Doom series, this badass gun can take down a Cyberdemon with a few well placed shots (as stated by Boomstick). Fortunately, we're not dealing with demons here, but zombies. And the power behind each of its slugs can take down hordes of zombies from a mile away. Though its ammo is a bit of a concern, its well worth it. 

      Now before we get to Number 1, lets do a little recap:

      10. The M-920 Cain

      9.  The Portal Gun

      8. The Auger Mk II

      7. The Gravity Gun

      6. The Leichenfaust 44

      5. The Mk II Lancer Assault Rifle

      4. The Devastator

      3. The Minigun (a.k.a. Sasha)

      2. The BFG

      #1: The Scarab Gun

      HOLY SHIT!!!! The most powerful weapon in Halo 2 (as well as the hardest to find) the Scarab Gun may look like a typical Plasma Rifle, but it has the firepower of a Covenent Scarab! Anyone who's played Halo 2 knows how powerful those things are. What makes this gun the most important gun in your arsenal against zombies is this: UNLIMITED AAAAAMMMMMMMMOOOOOO!!!!!! Oh , and it never overheats. 

      And so that was my Top 10 Video Game Guns I Want to Own in Case of a Zombie Apocalypse. I hope you've enjoyed this list, and as always, feedback is always welcome. 

  • About Me

    I am a huge fan of screwattack, and as with most g1s, i am a gamer. i prefer action/adventure games, platformers, fighting games, fps', and certain action/rpgs. i have been playing games since i was 5, when i saw my older sister play Super Mario Bros. on the NES back in 1997. i own a playstation 3 and a wii, and might get some new systems soon. not a true xbox fan, but i do respect its franchises, like gears of war and halo. usually whenever i play games, i almost always listen to many of my favorite heavy metal and hard rock fbands like Metallica, Megadeth, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Anthrax, Slayer, Accept, Led Zeppelin, Avenged Sevenfold, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Dio (not a real fan of death metal, i can tolerate so much shouting). Recently, i've decided to be more proactive, so i'll be posting several things, from personal Top 10's to A Quick Look At articles on games, news, or any show that we may or may not have enjoyed in our childhoods. still, this so the rest of the g1's can get to know me and maybe make a name for myself.
