Me neither, was that in the Shadow Broker DLC? It seems highly unlikely.

Yeah, there's a video feed of the character sitting at a table with a drink just gazing at a picture of her.

Shepard went back in time and became his own grandfather too. You guys miss out on so much.

edit You can see what kvp is talking about halfway through here. I don't think it means she's her father though.

The wiki does say she has a daughter, and I seem to recall some dialogue on the subject as well. And yes, she is the father, we met Liara's mother earlier in Mass Effect 1.

Whoa, wait a second. That means Liara and her estranged father live on the same planet in ME2. Less than a minute's walk away, even. And we're supposed to believe they don't even know each other? This reeks of retconning, considering that, in her most entertaining stories, Aethya omits having mated with the asari that helped Saren almost wipe out galactic life and produced the daughter who helped prevent it.

Edit: Look at that, same line of thought on the Gamespot forums. It seems likelier and likelier...

Hey who knows, maybe the matriarch just got tired and sat down in at a random table upon which a framed photo of Liara was carelessly left by someone who actually had a reason to own one in the first place.

Or she's been sent by the Reapers to assassinate Liara and she's psyching herself up for the job.

Liara's real father is Harbinger.

I think there was a Gameinformer interview that said something along the lines of that the writers hadn't initally thought of Aethyta as Liara's dad, but now that everyone had been talking about it and speculating, they're thinking about whether or not to actually make it so.

Some fans have speculated that Aethyta (the Asari Matriarch behind the bar at Eternity) is Liara’s “father.” Is there any truth to that? Will we find out more on that topic in Mass Effect 3?
The writers are keenly aware of the speculation and there are indeed discussions about how this plot line will resolve in Mass Effect 3. And that’s all I can say about that.

It's a bit too vague to draw any conclusions from, but when they say 'keenly aware of the speculation' it does look like another way of saying 'we hadn't thought of that'.

So, I really like Mass Effect 2...

I bought a copy of Mass Effect...

This now seems pretty accurate to me:


I am constantly getting my ass kicked.  I drive the fucking seemingly indestructible car into lava pits.  In short, I am drowning.
Currently I have a mission to get through, the one where I rescue Liara, I believe, and CAN NOT fucking get through it.  Add to that the fact that I got all the way to the base on the planet (I had exited the car because I couldn't drive any further), and someone seemingly shot me around a corner.  And I had to start the entire fucking mission again, all the way from driving through the goddamn lava pits and shit again.  At this point I restrained myself from throwing my controller, and took the game out and put boxing in to beat the shit out people.

In short, the first game is somewhat frustrating, but I really love the 2nd one.

I've never played either of those.  I guess, if I have a point, it's that I find 2 refreshing in regards to controls and mechanics, after now trying to play through 1.  I don't hate 1.  I just have a preference, and it's 2.

That's the same vibe I got.

To be honest, I hope they do write that in, because Aethyta and Claudia Black's voice are two of the best things that happens in Ilium

It would be unwise not to utilise other direct download platforms. Keep in mind that Origin is the company store so of course they'll have the preorders first.

actually that's a good question, the direct download version of SWTOR is exclusive to Origin.

ABuy a physical retail copy and open the launcher with steam. This way you may even be able to avoid price gouging.

From what I hear it's just replacing EA Download Manager which came with Spore for me. They'll probably put origin on the disc because the ME3 launch will be huge and will sell well regardless.

Whoa, just finished my first playthrough.  So great.

Which dlc's are worthwhile? I've heard a lot of good about The Shadow Broker, but otherwise, a lot looks like new skins and other stuff. Recommendations?

Shadow Broker is probably the best, but play Firewalker cause it's free.

Shadow Broker is absolutely necessary. Overlord is interesting enough, but purely optional. Kasumi is a great team member and her mission is fun enough, but short. Can't say it's definitely worth the money. Haven't played the Arrival yet.

If characterize Lair of the Shadow Broker as Mass Effect 2's epilogue, I'd say Arrival is Mass Effect 3's prologue.

^This. It's been explicitly said that the game takes place about 3-4 months after the events of Arrival and begins with the aftermath of what happened in the DLC, so I strongly recommend getting both LotSB and Arrival at least since they are both fairly integral to the overarching plot of Mass Effect 2 and 3.

Workin' on my 2nd playthrough right now since this came out. Went with an Engineer Shephard and am diggin' it. Finishing up all the anomolies on the planets before I collect the IFF -- everyone's loyal (but Legion - don't have him yet).

Anyway, speaking of DLC, is there a way to get them without XBL? Or do I gotta pay for that, and then pay for the DLC? I don't play enough to warrant the cost of XBL on top of the DLC.

Nah, gotta do it through XBL. You don't have to have Gold to do it though, just the ability to connect to the internet. To be honest though, I don't really play multi much at all but the sales for Gold members pays for itself in my case.
