◤ So I finally managed to recover the audio from the gitched Zaeed dialogue in ME3 ◢
Okay so this requires a little explaining.
Last July I had the opportunity to go to San Diego for Comic Con. While I didn’t have a badge for the actual convention itself, the Bioware Base didn’t require a badge was open to anyone so I spent most of my weekend there hanging out with the devs and my friends I went to visit.
On the last day, we got into a conversation with Sylvia, Liara’s writer. I forget how it came up exactly, but she told us that Zaeed’s dialogue loop was glitched in ME3. Supposedly he was supposed to have a whole rant about what happened to Vido, but the trigger broke a few days before they shipped the game off to be printed, and they never got it fixed.
So she told us the story and I spent the last year sad inside that it wasn’t in game, and sad that no one seemed to have discovered it while datamining. It seemed like my three friends and I were the only ones to know it existed.
Using ME3 Explorer I datamined the audio files out and have strung them together in a video you can find here, so you all can enjoy Robin’s wonderful voice acting of the piece. For now, here is the script of the lines, pieced together as best I could from what I had.
◤ The Citadel DLC gets 11/10 ◢
I almost cried at the end I didn’t wow I ddjudfgfdgdg
wow i am dead in a good way
“I very immensely desire to touch the butt of Kai Leng.”
◤ THE LINDOCTRINATION THEORY ◢
haha get it linsneakers indoctrination lindoctrin—
Excuse any shoddy/awkward phrasing, I was terribly exhausted when I wrote it (because haha sick) and I’m still not quite certain how to explain this nicely. Deal with it, primitives.
“I don’t understand how people hate the everlasting hell out of Kai Leng, but then turn around and praise their Renegade Shepards. Both of them do absolutely terrible things. Renegade Shepards are more than just a ‘jerk’. The two are practically on the same spectrum as each other. I enjoy my Renegade Sheps, but I can admit they’re absolute bastards. Same with Kai Leng.”
◤ I just misheard a line in the Leviathan DLC. ◢
“So Leviathan can regulate Birth Control?”
◤ Here’s a random headcanon of ME3’s ending. ◢
That sudden realization that FemShep’s butt and breasts change shape (sometimes drastically) depending on which casual outfit she’s wearing.
