Hanar won't be happy with ME3 until they release a DLC allowing his Shepard to bow down and lick TIM's boots. I swear he actually believes in Cerberus's racist ideals.

Not just incredulity that Bioware would try to do something like that, but an apparent belief that Bioware are incapable of doing something like that.

No, it's not indoctrination, it's not foreshadowing, it's not hidden depths and deeper meanings, it's all just bad writingz! /facepalm

Even if it's not IT, I am 100% certain that Bioware will have a twist in the tale for us before the DLC cycle is complete. They have something planned, and I can't wait to see what it is.

Seboist is not even the only one with the red scarf in his/her avatar. I've seen multiple users with exactly the same red scarf. Heretic_Hanar has one, Costin_Razvan has a red scarf too.

What is going on here, are they starting an online gang or something? Laughing

Considering its the same pattern, I suspect they are a little forum-gang who don't understand how to remain secret (or want to think they are smart and bold by having similar sigs).

Well, to be quite honest, I don't think they want to be a secret. Never heard of "reppin' the gang"? It means you "fly the colors" of your gang, in public, showing everyone that you are part of said gang. It increases the notoriety of the gang, which is exactly the point.


PS: I'm not a gangster myself, I simply watched a documentary about it once. Laughing

It'd be hilarious to roll back onto BSN and start our own gang.

I'm trying to imagine gang that would have Mitsuru Kirijo, Monkey D. Luffy, and Jim Raynor in it.

I wouldn't want to run into them as a villain that is for sure.

Also if Luffy was placed in the decision chamber he would break free. Never mind recognizing it for the trick it is, the moment the Catalyst said "I know you have thought about destroying us" Luffy would smash that tube open without waiting for the Catalyst to finish Laughing

Luffy would not recognize any tricks. He doesn't need to. Luffy is so gullible and stupid, yet through his own stupidity and rash behavior, he often makes the best decisions in hindsight. Hehe, Luffy is awesome.

I have to say, even though Hanar is an annoying troll, he does know his anime. One Piece is absolutely awesome! Laughing

Hanar secretly likes IT. He just doesn't want to admit it. He's like this guy who hangs around this girl that he claims to hate, but there's nothing he'd rather do than make sweet love to her.

Hanar has revealed before that he dislikes IT simply because it would make his ending choice wrong.

The entirety of the game made his ending choice wrong. Even in the literal interpretation, Shepard must have been tainted with indoctrination when TIM forced him to kill Anderson. You cannot control that which controls you.

This isn't a case of literalist's failing hard at logic, but its an interesting thread regardless.

I believe his reasons for disliking the IT where a bit more complex than just that. Although I wouldn't doubt that this is one of the reasons why he doesn't like the IT. I also saw him posting other reasons however. He once said that he doesn't like the IT because it would just be a "cheap reset button" and turning the current endings in "just all a dream", or something like that.

I disagree with him obviously, but it still shows his reasons for disliking the IT are more than just "it makes my ending choice wrong".

Is he still spending so much time in the IT group? I haven't really been lurking there ever since this forum was started. This place is much cooler and I feel much more comfortable to post here than on the BSN.
