View Full Version : Is EGO becoming more stupid as the game progresses?

I'm at E-1800 right now, and I swear that EGO has suffered a serious case of the stupids as the game has gotten to THIS point. It's like EGO had a memory wipe since the original EGO during the training sessions, and has regressed to an ignorant fool who not only repeats blather, but gets stuff wrong all the time, babbles incessantly and has not much worth listening to.

I hope to God it doesn't get worse, or she'll be singing nursery rhymes and talking about potty-training before I make it to E-2800.

CORTANA was at least relevant, if only she would have played a bigger role.


EGO, otoh, should just shut up and take a bus to someplace too noisy to hear her.

I'm sure IRL she's a very nice entity, but the script they wrote for her should have been shredded, and the devs who OK'd it should be given a stern talking-to, and then kicked in the balls several times.
Twice.

jmho.
I can't imagine why it wouldn't be.

Well look at it this way. She's inside your head, right? The higher your ego rating, one would assume the more punishment you've taken. So higher ego level = higher brain damage = dumber ego. It's simple really! :cool:

Yeah, I was going to make a joke about her going rampant, but then I remembered that even when Cortana was rampant she was still fairly useful, if not a little unreliable.

Pretty much. It's like she was trying WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too hard to be Cortana. And failing so super hard at it.

Am I the only one who likes it? I like the way she says 'let's roll!' I thought whoever gave her a voice and script did good job.

I like her. But in saying that I can block of annoying sounds and have a tendency to enjoy the consistent beeping of a car door.

I think the soldier npc's at roadside emergencies are far more annoying.....

Soldier : "Tango sighted! I think Tango is sighted! Tango sighted! In case you didn't hear me....Tango sighted! Tango sighted! Tango sighted! Tango sighted! Tangosighted! TangosightedTangosightedTangosighted!"

Me : " DO YOU THINK THAT TANGO HAS BEEN SIGHTED??!!"

Angel was so much better. Especially in BL1. Her character changed significantly in BL2.

Yeah I didn't like her in BL2. In the first one it was just the eyes so it seemed fitting.
In BL2 it was like 'LEDS GET PRETTY GIRL IN FRONT OF FAN', she looked smug as jek to me everytime I saw her pop up, her darn head tilting and judging eyes.

It's like a marriage in real life. The first 30 days are awesome. Then it just goes downhill from there.

I already have a suggestion in the other forum requesting we be allowed to kill those inbreds once every half hour.
