Skyllian-Five Poker by pokketmowse Skyllian-Five Poker by pokketmowse
Game night aboard the Normandy. It's actually quite competitive. Tali likely has the best poker face. Legion just has no face.

I'll probably re-do this later. So it's less...crappy.

(I reuploaded it with a different background so more people would get the reference. Haw.)

It reminds me of Star Trek: TNG. Enterprise crew playing poker. I like this a little better though.

Not true for the fingers.
The asari have 5, also the Drell (somehow)

That's cause you can't read their faces. However reading BODY language is a different story. I'm sure that's how Quarians know how the other is feeling.

I'm wondering if the other player's can see the reflection of the cards in Tali's helmet... that wouldn't be the best pokerface after all. :P

But yeah, amazing just like the rest of your gallery! :D

Grunt: "What?! This poker variant has more aces?"
Tali: "Yes, 8s, 9s and 10s are aces."
Grunt: "I will not play this. With all this aces it's a game for woman!"

Thats an really amazing picture.

You know, it would actually be really cool to see scenarios like this on ship between missions. Say they're waiting to dock somewhere, or stuck waiting for orders ... have them actually react with one another in more "human" ways.

Well let's see,

You've got Tali who would have the best poker face in the room, no emotion is shown considering the mask and what not.

Legion who does actually make some tells due to his facial flaps, but regardless is a computer and would likely be making many (if not all) of his calls based on the best possible pot odds and probabilities.

The genius doctor Mordin who I feel would quickly pick up on tells from other players making it very difficult to bluff against him.

The loose cannon Garrus, who would likely be making very aggressive plays while still remaining strategic in his overall plans. He would likely be thinking five hands ahead (although i'm not sure exactly how you do that in a game of poker)

Finally you have Shepard who is simply a badass. I don't think I need to say much more here.

Yeah, this is one table I don't think I would want to sit down with.

Whatever the case, would love to see an updated/improved piece.

P.S. I just realized that Tali is holding a drink.... How exactly does that one work?

i think the light area on tali's mask that blinks when she talks also doubles as a food/drink opening....they eat nutrient paste from sealed tubes i guess there would be a built in sanitizer to process the drink before she swallowed it

This pic is okay, but I doubt they would really invite Legion to play. For one, he's a fuckin' bore, and two, he'll probably just calculate the probabilities and such to win the game in his favor. Asshole must have invited himself...

Honestly though, a great picture. You captured everyone's look pretty well!

Though Legion apparently loves playing games, if you look up his file on shadow broker DLC he even plays asari love sim games :slow:

Scu-Lives Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2011
That's funny I guess. Actually seems out of character, like most of the Shadow Broker content. The guy has a hard time understanding the small sentimentality behind the N7 armor he grafted onto himself and he plays love sims? Maybe he's trying to get in touch with his inner Geth.

Well Katsumi writes haiku poems about Jacob and admits she likes him dialogue wise. Jack also writes angst poems and submits the content to contests :lol: because she wants to tel her story, or vent or whatever

I don't think it is out of character per say, there is a lot more to Legion than meets the eye. Don't forget, he was built to speak--in other words, commune with non-geth. But data is simpler to understand...why not play video games? (also, on the asari love games, his score rating is awful) whereas logic and shoot games his scores are so high he gets suspended on suspion of cheating. :lol: It is little touches like this that make me smile I guess

Don't get me wrong, Legion is one of my favorite characters and honestly one of their best. There is SO much depth to him, he's awesome. I just found the main story and content of the Shadow Broker pack to be lacking. I'm probably being too harsh on the side content the pack offers because of this, it felt like it was written by another group of writers. The back and forths between Liara and Shepard, though funny, felt like a buddy cop script, not the two well fleshed out characters they really are. All in all, I was disappointed by the pack and in result am a tad harsh on it's side content. Honestly, I probably need to ease up on it. Legion playing games isn't really out of character, just hard to picture, which is why it's interesting in the first place. He'd probably spend all his time on the net exploring countless sources of information while also participating in many social and competive networks in an effort to compile data. Heh, and he'd probably do it in the blink of an eye, since he mind can process information at the speed of light.
