    Off topic note about the lore of the universe:

    The Asari are supposed to be hot because they can't reproduce amongst themselves, and require other species to mate with in order to survive. So, they attract other species with their good looks.

    They were designed by a horny dude with a tablet, so their beauty standards are obviously mirroring that of human standards. But here's the problem - would another species like the Krogan, Turian, or even Vorcha find those qualities attractive? Wouldn't the Krogan be more attracted to a female Krogan because she'd possess certain qualities that are attractive to them? The Batarian space-pirate would probably be like "DAYUM look at those gorgeous quad-eyes."

    How did the Asari even manage to survive as a species if their only hope for attracting a mate relied on horny space humans? Did they just venture out and find victims to rape until they had a relatively large population?

    The strip club scene says that Asari are attractive to Salarians who don't feel sexual attraction.

    For me, that's why I always liked the fanon statement they don't actually look like humans.

    :)

    They just have MIND CONTROL.

    Perhaps. It just sounds so dumb that a species like that survived before FTL was discovered. Their entire existent hinged on bumping into another species.

    clearly, they used to have men before their space vampires ate them.

    It's still kinda a stupid idea, without any context given. Or do they ever explain their "evolution"?

    But Mass Effect is anyway, pretty conservative when it comes to alien species, I mean most of them are humanoid, kinda like in Star Trek.

  8. Kinky. And people looking down on ecchi when those do that.

    Are there anaerobic (no use for oxigen and/or can move in space freely) sentient aliens in ME? Those are nearly always my favourites. Normally look freaky and are segregated from other species if they happen to drain O2 or something.

    Yeah, but science fiction isn't about aliens, it's about us.

    * No one wanted a new galaxy
    * No one wanted a new character
    * No one wanted a new cast
    * Mass Effect, itself, was a tainted brand.
    * No wanted a Wild West in space

    So I'm not surprised.

    Uh...what?

    Science fiction isn't about aliens. It's about speculative situations to talk about real world issues like classicism, racism, poverty, imperialism, and so on. No one cares about 8 armed monsters but two humanoid aliens fighting to death over race allows issues to be confronted.

    Just sayin.

    I used to like Tali-Shepard but then woke up and suddenly was all space racist.
