* Jacob's situation on Arrae is the exact opposite of how his father ended up after the Gernsback crashed. Ronald put himself at the top of the food chain and relied on the toxic food to render everyone else mentally incapable of resisting. Jaocb, by contrast, becomes an actual leader to the Cerberus defectors, risking life and limb for them and their families and ensuring they can do make the most of their intelligence.

* All throughout the series, geth weapons have magically done way more damage and been way more accurate in the hands of enemies for no real reason. They could also seemingly track you no matter where you went on the map, even if it made no sense. Mass Effect 3's multiplayer actually gives a reason: all of that is part of one of their combat powers, Hunter Mode. And the game lets ''us'' use it now, when playing as a geth, essentially canonizing TheComputerIsACheatingBastard.

And the game lets ''us'' use it now, when playing as a geth, essentially canonizing TheComputerIsACheatingBastard. The description for Hunter Mode explains that the geth reroutes power from itself into offensive capabilities to boost weapon damage, which makes sense; guns in Mass Effect are coilguns, so putting more energy into the mass effect field generator would mean more velocity and therefore more energy for the bullets.

*** Oh, please. The Americans prevailed on vast industrial and logistics capability, massive amounts of heavy artillery, and lots and lots of bombers. There was nothing at all subtle or clever about US ground tactics, which were crude compared to the Germans or British..

* Remember Kai Leng? Yes, this jerkass with several layers of [[PlotArmor plot armor]] who [[spoiler:murders at least one of your friends.]] If you think about it, he might represent humanity im Mass Effect uniwerse, or at least how it is seen by aliens. He just arrived at the scene, but somehow managed to defeat much more experienced killers, just like humans in First Contact War. Just like humans at Shanxi, he uses theoreticly inferior technology - in his case sword - but thanks to some luck and, well, plot armor he wins. He is extremely xenophobic, just like some - "You humans are all racist" - aliens consider us to be. And, of course, he works for the organization focused on ensuring human dominance in the galaxy, which seems to be what humanity is striving for, especially if Shepard allowed Council to be destroyed.

** Earth diameter is around 12 000 km, her orbit around 300 000 000. And the fleet made jump to pluton orbit, which is around 5 250 000 000 km from earth. Space is really fucking HUGE. Lets say the odd aren't that bad.
