I’m really starting to run out of name for episodes where everything is fighting all the time.
In any case, I want whatever Vasir’s having. Seriously, this boss fight took most of the episode. And let’s have a look at the sequence of events here:
1. We crash her spacecar into a building. She’s apparently injured, but not enough to keep her from shooting a bunch of robots and walls for no reason.
2. She walks into a large bar while bleeding out to the point that her boots are covered in her own blood, and takes a hostage.
3. We shoot her (and the hostage, yay!) which is apparently the equivalent of a mild breeze to Vasir because…
4. Only after all of that do we finally launch into a lengthy seven minute boss fight wherein we discover that she still possesses an enormous reserve of spare shield energy and armor (and a respectable supply of mooks).
I swear, she has more lives than Saren. And she’s more of a pain to kill to boot! I know the Illusive Man keeps telling Shepard that she’s “humanity’s savior” and that she can “do anything,” but sheesh, this was just one of the Shadow Broker’s agents! I mean, we do have the “reload last save” button on our side, but really, my years of shooter experience tell me that “godmode” is better.
Maybe we could just settle on noclip.
