So the end of Mass Effect 3 foreshadowed at the start of ME 2. Brilliant!

Nice! Not sure if coincidence, though. It does seem to foreshadow the kid, but it might as well be a Stephen King reference or something.

Thanks, I've had a LOT of help finding these, though!

Joker: "Hey Commander, check it out! Big news! The new Blasto movie is breaking opening week records! There's also a big expose on quasar tournaments, tips on how to make your apartment look bigger, and...oh yeah, a big ass Reaper invasion. These people have no idea."

Shepard: "Sometimes I think this whole Citadel is a mistake."

This seems relevant in light of the upcoming Citadel DLC.

It mentions gambling, casino, apartment, citadel, while Reaper invasion, people having no idea.... I mean: MIND = BLOWN

Also:

Arrival DLC - Datapad of one of the indoctrinated scientists: I woke up this morning in a cold sweat. The nightmare was back, the one with the enormous starship crawling through the Citadel and all my friends turning to dust. Even now I can see it in my mind. Why won’t this stop?

Great find by Raven

MIND = BLOWN

BUMP

My fellow IT-ers!

I'm bumping this thread to ask you all to help me find IT quotes in the Citadel DLC.

There's some major IT hints and (destroy) ending foreshadowing going on, as well as several breath scene / pull out of rubble references.

Anderson's datapads and interview especially are noteworthy. There's a lot more though.

You know the drill, I need exact, literal quotes! Wink

Breath scene references in Citadel DLC:

Jack: Good enough so that if you're ever hurt, barely breathing, lying under a pile of rubble at the ass end of this war, you're gonna have...
Shepard: You worry too much.

Zaeed: It makes me feel uneasy, like when you're alone in the dark, lying in wait, and a cold wind brushes across your face, like the kiss of death.

Anderson: Why'd I join the military? Sometimes, you just gotta howl to make things right.

Anderson: And the boys fought great that night. Sometimes that's all it takes. A joke. A pat on the back. Just a little reminder that everything's gonna be okay.

Anderson: We pay a price for that curiosity, that drive. Our relationships suffer. People we love suffer. But that's reality and it's worth the cost. I must have thought it was... I guess I still do. In the end, you just have to hope you made the right choices.

Anderson: I did what I had to. If I had been wrong, I would've gladly accepted the repercussions. The real trick is never being wrong. Ha. If you're looking for more action and less philosophy in these notes, let me know.

Anderson: Sure, I can talk about Commander Shepard. Big topic. There's been a lot written about the Commander, but most of it isn't true. People are quick to judge. They don't know the whole story. I don't even know the whole story. But I know the man. Worked with him, fought with him. Trust him with my life. Shepard's had some rough patches. Who of us hasn't. He's been forced to fight a lot of battles alone. God only knows how he got out of some of that. Makes your head spin. Thing is, you never heard a complaint. Never once got 'No sir, I can't do that'. He never hesitated. Few people know what Shepard's been through. I'd like to think I come pretty close. And I worry sometimes he forgets: there's a whole bunch of people who lose sleep over him getting back home. Maybe it doesn't need to be said. Maybe we're too dumb to say it. Soldiers like the Commander are rare. Men like Shepard... even more rare.

Anderson: Every soldier reaches a point in their career, sometimes more than once, when they are asked to give more than they ever thought they could. That moment is the test. I've seen men and women, almost sure to fail, persevere long past the point of breaking. That experience changes them. Others, with all the gift and abilities, fail in that moment. Sometimes, they pick themselves back up and carry on. Sometimes, they're just done. But I think the toughest tests are still ahead of me. [...] Call it a hunch. [Soldier's intuition?] Something like that. [Do you trust your intuition? I mean, do you follow your heart over your mind?] Well, huh, it depends on the day. No... I suppose if I were to be honest I do trust my instincts. The problem is war isn't orderly. And the enemy is never predictable. Even the most experienced veteran is going to find themselves in situations they haven't trained for. In those instances, and there's more than I'd like to admit, your instincts are the only thing keeping you alive. That, and the men and women you're fighting beside.
[But soldiers are only as good as their leader, isn't that true?] Yeah. A good leader can make an okay squad great. A bad leader... well, war tends to make examples of them. [What makes a good leader, then?] Hmm... A good leader is someone who values the life of his men over the success of the mission, but understands that sometimes the cost of failing a mission is higher than the cost of losing those men.

Shepard: So you're a con man.
Rolan: Con men leave their marks angry. Con artists leave them smiling.

Anderson: Learned an important lesson that day: No matter how good you think you are, there's always someone quicker, faster and a hell of a lot smarter than you, just around the corner. That little lesson has kept me alive more than once since then.

Elcor actor: And in this harsh world, draw thy breath in pain, to tell my story. (...) I cannot live to hear the news from England.

Shepard (to Miranda): Sounds like you need some time to catch your breath.

Wrex: Korball! It means "Victory or death!"

DoomsdayDevice wrote:Major ending foreshadowing:

Miranda: I was hearing some confusing reports. Sounded like you had lost your mind.
Shepard: No doubt. My communications were hacked, among other things. I'm sure the news had a field day.
Miranda: It did. So... a clone?
(...)
Miranda: My focus at the time was bringing you back. We needed the real Shepard, not some cheap knock-off.
(...)
Shepard: I did. Fell right through the fish tank.
Miranda: How did you manage that?
Shepard: It... exploded. Hey, it was the clone's plan, not mine.
Miranda: Blowing up a fish tank shouldn't be part of anyone's plan. Although executing marine life seems to be some sort of hobby with you. No wonder your clone couldn't resist.
Shepard: It was the first step in taking over my whole life. We stopped it.
Miranda: Good thing. But why would it want your life? Why would anyone? All that running, jumping, gunfire? it's crazy.
Shepard: I try not to think about it.
Miranda: Probably for the best.
Shepard: Trust me, I know all this isn't normal.
Miranda: Speaking of trust... With all this clone business, how do I know you're the real Shepard?
Shepard: I don't know. You just do.
Miranda: Do I? That's the trouble with clones: You can never be sure.
(...)
Shepard: Well, clone or not, I'm the only Shepard left.
Miranda: Good point. I guess I'm stuck with you.
Shepard: I do have a crazy life, don't I?
Miranda: That you do, my friend... That you do.


'executing marine life'... yeah, giant space cuttlefish.

I think all this clone talk is major foreshadowing of an indoctrinated Shepard. So many references to the ending... blowing up a tube doesn't make any sense, neither does blowing up a fish tank, especially because the fish tank wasn't blown up in the first place. Interesting choice of words, Bioware. And then the reasons why anyone would want to indoctrinate Shepard, 'be' Shepard...

Your communications were hacked among other things, eh Shepard? Yeah, that's one way of putting what happened in the ending.

Awesome stuff, there's more.

Another reference to saving Shepard:

Liara: There was always something more important to do; a ruin to uncover, intel to gather... a commander to save.
Shepard: Hah. You just couldn't sit still without me.


NO SHIT, BIOWARE!

Check this out, the space chess game between Traynor and the Asari:

Polgara T'Suzsa: Neural feedback, It disincentivizes sacrificing pieces casually.

Or, how the catalyst tries to sway you from picking destroy. Nice one, Bioware.

During that same game, take the renegade interrupt:

Shepard: You're trash-talking. That's another strategy that doesn't work on the Reapers.

Is Shepard saying refuse won't win you the game? Sure sounds like.

It gets even better.

You know the claw machine that totally foreshadows the endings? (The balls look like the explosions, the machine tells you that you win even when you lose, and the order for the colours from best to worst is orange/red-pink-blue-green)

Check this out. Zaeed thinks the game is obviously rigged:

Zaeed: There was a kid here, snivelling brat, spending all his credits, crying.
Shepard: So you thought you'd get a prize for him.
Zaeed: He asked. Looked simple enough. Goddamn it.
Shepard: Where's the kid?
Zaeed: What do I care? Got any credits, Shepard?
Shepard: Isn't there something better we could go do?
Zaeed: What could possibly be more important than Zaeed Massani not getting bested by some fucking kids' game?
(...)


Now, let Shepard have a go instead of Zaeed. Shep will win the orange/red ball.

Shepard: Beginner's luck.
Zaeed: It's obviously rigged somehow.
Shepard: But I just... never mind.
Zaeed: I'm going to hunt down the shit-for-brains "inventor" of this crooked game and pull his inspiration out through his arse-hole.
(...)


Now finally, take the renegade option, the one that's labelled "You conquered it. Move on."

Shepard: Zaeed, will another victory ever match the one you just experienced?
Zaeed: You're right. I guess you've been around that block a few times.


Really, Bioware?

Some brat is making you play a rigged game? What could possibly be more important than not getting bested by some kids' game?

Also, nice little reference to all the ending hate directed at the writers. You're obviously just having a laugh at the whole ending fiasco. Laughing

Will another victory ever match the one you just experienced? REALLY, BIOWARE? Rofl

Everyone seems to ignore the part about communications hacked.
QEC, anyone? ))

The only wat to hack the QEC is to be on the other end.
Are we really taking our orders and reporting to the reapers the whole game?

Communications hacked is an ending reference, IMO.

@Swoby: I know you're joking, but Shepard never actually killed any Leviathans, so yeah...

At the very least its suggestive that "refusing" is bad...and that should have some impact on the ending choice or lack there of...

People will die if you refuse to be a leader... leaders have to take the big decisions.

Maybe.

Thats it exactly. Shepard, as a leader, HAS to act. Leaders have too much riding on them in war to simply refuse to act because the act comes at a cost.

DD - think of it in context of the quote from the Anderson interview about having to understand that sometimes the risk is worth the cost of lives - its more than suggestive that "refusing to act" is not a good choice. As much as I want to think that refuse brings balance to the end choices (2 somewhat good, 2 somewhat bad) - it is a pretty hollow victory when you consider that no one from the current cycle has an opportunity to enjoy the "victory" if you refuse.

On a side note, since this rant mad me think of it...is it possible that in the refuse ending that the Asari we see at the very end is a descendant of Liara (and in some playthroughs, Shepard)?

I see all the endings, including the refuse ending, as Reaper illusions. I do not believe any of them tells us anything about the actual future. So I couldn't say.

I think Joker and EDI have some of the best foreshadowing lines, as constants on the Normandy.

This should be here (a bit surprised it wasn't):

Shepard: "And there will be peace?"
Child: "The cycle will end, the Reapers will cease their harvest, and the civilizations preserved in their forms will be connected to all of us."
