Even I have too much faith in BW to believe that to be even a possibility.

Would be a pretty boring game, if everyone was living zhe dream, right?

Honestly, I'm pretty sure the circuitry was only there to make synthesis seem sillier and hint to you that it can't possibly be real.

It definitely had that effect on me. When I saw the circuits on tree leafs, that's when I was sure what I was seeing couldn't be real and something was up. It really struck me as the writers prodding the player as if to say, "you know this isn't real, right?"

I have trouble believing Synthesis is seriously considered as canon here. Just the fact they put that green circuit overlay on everything in sight means they've already told us they won't canonize it. Say what you want about BioWare, but their art department would never allow that to happen.

Besides:



This is what we'll get. Hanging out with Harby. Sure.

If they canonize synthesis..... Then Mass Effect will have officially ended after Shepard defeated the collectors and blew up their base....... I'm just sayin'.

"Synthesis is seriously considered as canon here"?

How the devil did you get that crazy impression?

Synthesis is universally hated, no one here believes it's real. AFAIK most people here think it means you're volunteering for the harvest and "ascension"; in other words, becoming a Reaper.

I believe what he meant to say was that he can't believe people are even giving any notion to the thought that BW might go with synthesis canon for ME4.

And he's right, I can't believe you guys are either.  But you are.  Now stop.  kthxbye.

I sure hope you wouldn't pick it in-game.

I've never picked anything else than destroy (except when EC came out, then I accidentally got the refuse ending by shooting at the catalyst to see if it would do anything now).

And no, I completely agree that the idea that Bioware would canonize synthesis is absurd. Will never happen. I've never taken those rumours seriously, in fact I even refused to comment on the whole 'green cloud' thing.

So Rif, you're talking to the wrong person. ;)

I said "you guys" because I was talking to the group as a whole.

Green cloud... do I really want to know what that entails?

Here you go...

Pretty innocuous if ask me...but there was more than one synthesis joke passed around because of it.
