Show of the Week: Mass Effect's 7 Most Deranged Renegade Moments
As the last generation of consoles recedes into the distance, Show of the Week takes its eyes off the road to the future of videogames, peers over one shoulder because it has a shoulder in this metaphor, and looks back to the Mass Effect trilogy: as glorious an RPG space opera as we could have have hoped for. Join us to salute BioWare's sci-fi saga and recognise Shepard's most violently erratic Renegade interrupts.
As a science fiction fan with a taste for RPGs, a soft spot for romantic subplots and a fantasy about having my own spaceship, I am someone whose interests were laser-targeted by Mass Effect. It stole my heart in 2007 with the original game and never gave it back, so I can't wait for what comes next for the Mass Effect series. For now, I'm more than happy reliving the Mass Effect glory days on Xbox 360.
Show of the Week commemorates the near-irresistable options for interrupting conversations in Mass Effects 2 and 3. Of those options, these Renegade interrupts were the most entertaining for lurching between Commander Stern But Fair and Commander Borderline Psycho. Watch out for spoilers.
