    The Geth SMG had already become one of my go to guns and it's even better now. At level 4 on a soldier with level 2 armor rounds, kicked on Marksman and just shredded Bruts.

    Then I got level 5.

    My freebie pack had a Geth Infiltrator, so that was pattern and color unlocked. Then I saved up for a Resurgence Pack and got pattern and color for my Geth Engineer. Not a bad night at all :D 

    Oh, also landed a Graal Spike Thrower V, but I suck with that. Go-to shotty is the Eviscerator VIII, love that gun.

    Still havent unlocked either of the Batarians, I'm not exactly devastated.

    I actually quite likke me batarian sentinel. I also unlocked the soldier but haven't yet had a chance to play him

    Supah punch is pretty neat. He has like a giant omni-fist or something :p  its hardcore



    Haven't yet redeemed my pack for the challenge but I'm hoping ill get the krogan battlemaster. He's the only one I have left to get out of the new guys

    Yeah the Batarian heavy melee is great. Especially pairing its damage reduction with the blade armors. Try and punch a rocket on Gold, you'll take a tiny amount of damage compared to just getting hit with the Blade Armor up.

    My first thought about them was, "the alliance lost a colony to them?"

    Then when mass effect 2 came: "oh yeah, the alliance did lose a colony to them." :lol 

    Anyways, does anybody have any recommendations for a class and race? (I was thinking about a human adapt)

    If you have him unlocked, I'd recommend the Batarian Soldier. Inferno Grenades speak for themselves, Blade Armor fucks up enemies going in for a melee, and Ballistic Blades not only stagger enemies but also can be upgraded to explode after a couple seconds. Plus, their heavy melee is beast:

    I love the Bat-Soldier. At a Silver session I was able to kill 3 Geth Hunters and 2 Geth Pyros within a blink of an eye.

    I just now successfully downloaded resurgence on my
    Xbox, but none of the new content has appeared in the game. No maps, no new character slots, no anything. Do I need to do something different to install it?

    If you got it in the game, you'll need to quit and restart.

    So, I've been ignoring multiplayer for a few days to focus on campaign and this thing called 'real life' and I just noticed that my Galactic Readiness has fallen from 100% to 72% in like a week!

    Well now...

    This weekend is Operation SILENCER. Our tasks: kill 3 million Banshees and complete a Full Extraction of Gold difficulty/Any enemy/Any Map.

    Of particular interest is the implication that playable Vorcha may be coming soon. And, if the rumors are true, playable Protheans may be coming with them...

    With the comment about the Cerberus Defectors could possible mean the rumored Phoenix are EX-Cerberus Agents.

    Maybe. I personally am leaning towards Prothean due to this theory:

    The phoenix is the mythical bird of fire that is consumed by flames in death, and rises again from the ashes. From Ashes being the name of the DLC that adds Javik, a living Prothean.

    Course this is still all just rampant speculation.

    I'm pretty sure I've only got the last section of the game to go.
    However, my Galactic Readiness has dropped to 67%.
    Should I play some Multiplayer to get that rating up?
    Does it help you get a 'good' ending or anything like that?

    Speculation, yes -rampant, no.

    It can help get "an" ending but its value as "Good" or "Bad" is debatable.
