I loved the Mako,
Mourned it's loss in the sequel.
I hope it returns.

The Hammerhead was a fair bit more fun, I think, even if it had that stupid scanner display thing that made it feel like a plastic toy.

I absolutely hated the Hammerhead segments, because combat was boring. You had to sit back and lob missiles at anything because it was frail as **** and even a few geth troopers would make quick work out of you.

What made it so bad,
was improbable terrain -
not Mako itself...

With that I concur.
Such tiny, yet steep mountains
Were ever a pain.

 
But that little mako,
Could easily conquer,
Those impossible mountains.

and after everything we've seen here maybe even more.
I know we're not the only ones, and we were not the first,

Part of the problem,
Mako's performance was:
No vehicle can
ascend a slope steeper than
forty-five degrees angle.

(branching out to tanka.)


(provided that the coefficient of static friction between the surface and the wheels is less than or equal to one)

This thread
has become
really weird
you sick ****s

Regarding the death toll in the trailer, are we assuming that's the whole planet's death toll?  Couldn't it just be London's?

It could
but then
that would
imply
that greater london
has its own defenses
which are not integrated
with any other defenses anywhere ever
which would be a little odd
unless future earth is reenacting the period of warring greek city states
which would be a little awesome
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

The Mako was okay. The problem wasn't the Mako itself, but all the repetitive missions you had to use it in.

The Hammerhead is way more fun to just move around in. It handles like the hovertanks in Battlezone, and I haven't seen any other game in the meantime that recreates that feel.

That's true about the general movements in the Hammerhead, though it really needs to be toughened up with a health bar (or something more noticeable than some smoke plumes coming from it) to tell you the health. :p

Haiku is a poem;
middle line has seven bars,
first and last but five.

Tanka is much alike,
it has five lines in total.
First three like Haiku,
but the rest is different;
seven syllables per line.

Nope. The Doc (of BTTF fame) takes Shepard back in time to nuke the race that created/sublimed into the Reapers

Meh, Chuck Norris can do it alone. You know, that guns carry HIM to be more tougher  :lol:

I liked the mako, even if the controls were a little to sensible and I hated to climb mountains in that thing. Mostly I liked it's weapons.

The Hammerhead also wasn't that bad, but totally unbalanced. Way too strong weapon and too weak hull. But the moving was OK. As stated, it really reminded on the battlezone games, that was fun :) Stronger Hammerhead with Mako-Gun, that would it be for me :)
