Omega Contest - How would You retake Omega? by Sorceress-Nadira Omega Contest - How would You retake Omega? by Sorceress-Nadira
FOLLOW or REBLOG on Tumblr, thank You!

Please credit if You repost it anywhere :D
-----------------

I was quite late to realise there's a contest being held at The Citadel, but I hope I made it on time :) The prompt was to make a picture, answering a question "How would you retake Omega?"
I got pretty crazy with the number of people I've taken (including a field biomedic, but I just had to take Danielle out once XD). I recently heard the only companions on Omega will be Aria and Nyreen, and I'm quite upset I won't be able to take Garrus with me... but I won't complain XD I mean, it's Nyreen, the Queen of ME fandom, no? XD

Multiple thanks to people, who make my arts possible:
~SumireHaikuXNA (for Tali, Danielle - my OC, Jake Shepard, Garrus alt, EDI alt, tweak on Aria, omnitool)
~nach77 (for weapons and Atlas)
*MrGameboy2012 (for Aria and Cerberus soldiers)
~Goha7777 (for Cerberus Phoenix soldier)
~Decan (for katana)
Models posed in XNALara, screenshot taken with flycam (curse You, *Vinghen for that!!! XD). All other work (shading, etc) made in Photoshop.

Bioware owns everything, except for my OC, Danielle. And did I mention that my husband just bought me the Trilogy pack???? Cannot wait to start the multiplayer!!
PS. Did I mention I got married last Saturday? XD

I'd blow it up with fire and brimstone. Places like those need to be destroyed.

I'm not going to spoil, but after finishing it, Omega was a total let-down and a huge waste of money for me. :no:

I'll wait before talking about it in case you have not played it yet.

I played it... I'm afraid I have to agree - it was quite boring and the fact I couldn't bring my squadmates with me made me feel like I wasn't playing ME at all, just another multiplayer mission >.>
Nyreen was awesome, of course, but the fact they killed her so easily was more than disappointing :P I was kinda hoping for a chance to keep her with me on the Normandy and boo :P
(I'm somehow certain the fact of both above comes directly from the problem BioWare could have had with employing their voice actors for this DLC. I mean, we don't hear any of the squadmates talking about it, right? >.>)

You can't overlook the rewards, though.  Lot of ships, good soldiers, and a huge supply of E. Zero can really help your rallying fleet in the final battle.

For me it was like the entire game (without EC) : pretty good... except the end where it's crap. When they killed off Nyreen that was so random and out of place, not only did I cry, I also nerd raged over it. Also my Shepard standing still, emotionless, like nothing happened at that moment was the icing on the cake. It had no point, except making Aria angry, that's pretty low : Nyreen's role get downgraded from awesome character to a plot-tool at that point, though Aria could've entered into her berserk mode by just seeing Petrovsky with her own eyes.

My biggest gripe, is the anti-climatic ending : Nyreen's completely forgotten, the bad guy gives up, Aria coming back to the Citadel instead of staying on Omega, and like you said, our squadmates aren't aware or don't even care of what happened while we were gone. Not even the Romance ! Garrus, I could've died there you jerk !

Had the developpers tried something like, you act Paragon/Renegade : Nyreen/Aria goes along with you for the last act and the other dies, the DLC would've almost completely redeemed itself in my opinion.

But hey ! There's some hope left ! Let's just say Nyreen had a teleporter device on her before the grenades explode ! Since we don't see her remains, we can guess she's still alive ! So, next up, in Mass Effect 3 : Citadel (20€ only !!), Nyreen makes a triumphant return by THE POWER OF LOVE & SPACE MAGIC ! :imhappyplz:

Meh, I was really disappointed at the DLC. Nyreen seemed much more badass the way I imagined her, and while I liked her, she was... somehow not developed well enough. I didn't fall for her like I thought I would :P Not to mention her out-of-the-blue death really left me with a WTF painted all over my face. It really just seemed like a cheap trick to set Aria on fire >.<
Not to mention the fact she kept on disappearing from the team, saying "hey, I need to meet my men" or "I need to save some civilians" and I was all like "Hey, girl, come back here! I gave you my favourite pistol!!"

What I was really missing in this DLC was the RPG, choose-your-way-through-this part. The only thing I noticed was the fact my (like three throughout the game) paragon choices made Aria refrain from killing Petrovsky. I mean, okay, fun, but... seriously? I thought I was playing the game where "each choice has tremendous effect on the Galaxy" :P

Well, I am kinda hoping Nyreen had survived, but I'm not really expecting to see her anywhere in the future DLC's... although I admit, I'd love that :D

I'm also kinda hoping for a turian female biotic class in MP along with those awesome Omega locations as new area :D

Go to the Citadel. Talk to Aria (after doing her missions to get the Blood Pack, Blue Suns and Eclipse to line up behind her). As her how she's planning to retake Omega.

Damn it, that should have read "Ask her how..." but at least you got it.

That's pretty cool !

For me the biggest drawback of this DLC would be not to be able to get Nyreen as a crew member. I totally understand for Aria, but Nyreen... I wanted some interactions between her and the crew members, especially Garrus (I totally imagine her dissing Garrus because of his scars, :lmao: Turians don't like scars right ?)

Too bad she'll probably finish as a war asset... or maybe she'll take Omega by herself. That would be nice if you have to choose between Aria & Nyreen as Omega's ruler at the end of the DLC, I bet Nyreen is completely different from Aria and could bring both peace and order to Omega.

Thank You ^.^

Maybe it's going to be as You say - that at the end of the DLC we will be able to choose between Aria and Nyreen, which one of them should rule Omega... and in this case, leaving them behind and not making them join as crew members makes some sense :)

I must say I'm waiting with great eagerness for this DLC and I az so excited to see what will they come up with! :D

As for turians not liking scars - I guess You're right! I remember discussing that with a friend once, when we came to a conclusion that scarred plates mean a turian reached a certain old age, so scars would make them look older and unattractive, I guess :)

The obvious solution is to swarm the station with Elcor tanks until they perish... Gawd I need to find that picture now, it's an Elcor with huge a$$ cannons on it! xD
