Well, two responses to that... First off, they need to deal with stuff like that in the actual game. Having it dealt with in third-party material is pretty pointless, since there's no guaruntee people will bother reading them

You DO realize this is EA, right? They put vital storyline info in DLC as well.

Secondly - bullshit. The star in ME2 is identical to the one in ME3. Unless the secret base takes the star with it when it relocates. Rolleyes

I think we can chalk that one up to the art department not wanting to create another background.

Of course, nobody says that Miranda was AWARE of where the base was. They could have easily taken her there blindfolded. Apparently only 6 people know where the base is at any given time, and of that 6, 5 are stationed there permanently. (the sixth is the Illusive Man himself.)


On a completely different note, just finished five multiplayer games with really, really awesome players. Once you get four players together that really cooperate and know how to play, the MP is absolutely glorious fun. Unlocked my Quarian Infiltrator AND my Salarian Engineer while I was at it, too.

And got my Galactic Readiness to 96%. Hehe. Oh, Reapers... come to daddy...
