I was driving around in the first Mass Effect just last night and was reminded that a) the Mako is the bounciest vehicle in the universe and b) Mass Effect 2 actually looks a lot better than Mass Effect. Based on the screenshots (http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/01/04/mass-effect-3-screenshots-show-new-baddies-expert-posing/) and trailers (http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/12/12/mass-effect-3-trailer-pits-reaper-vs-giant-worm-thing/) released so far, it looks like we can expect a similar visual leap for the grand finale, which promises more than a few enormous set pieces.

But will your PC run it? The full system requirements have popped up on the Bioware forums (http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/324/index/9006820/1). We slipped the Shadow Broker a few credits and he sent them over stapled to the forehead of a courier Volus. Here they are.

I was talking to our Chris Thursten last night about possible superweapons that could be used to defeat the Reaper menace. He suggested using a Mass Effect relay to shoot the Mako through the heart of the Reaper mothership (if such a thing exists), turning it into a massive, bouncy bullet. That could be quite awesome. How would you defeat the Reapers?
