    Joker, he falls in love with EDI, an AI (which are illegal), and at that point she doesn't have a body or her body can be thought of as the Normandy SR-2 itself. Which is pretty unconventional!

    I thought Vyk was referring to Cortez rather than Joker!

    He's your pilot in ME: 3! I haven't romanced him yet. I was gunning for Kaiden with my M!Shep. Maybe on another playthrough...

    I haven't played Tales of Zesteria yet. So how overt is it? I do sometimes wish games would just flat out make something of it instead of 'oooh, are they a couple'?

    That reminds me that I still haven't bought and played that DLC.
    DLC how it should be done. It's beautiful and brilliant. Get on it.
    Apparently I already bought it and never played it. I have zero memory of this.

    Yeah, Cortez. I was on my phone so I couldn't go into great detail. But Cortez talks about his husband when they are separated and presumed dead. Even a voice log was left for him as a final goodbye. A hard moment for the guy that Shepard has a chance to help him through

    It's never explicitly stated but I really feel like it would be generally accepted that they're a couple if it wasn't a gay couple.

    That's kinda what I was angling at. That the best it can be is 'well maybe' and rampant shipping, as opposed to canon or given official status because it is a gay couple.

    When I get to playing Zesteria I'd find it very interesting to see how it is represented in-game.

    It's Cloud and Tifa if they didn't spend 10 years away from each other, and constantly picked on each other. It can be interpreted both ways, but there's still a valid argument to be had for it

    I've only clocked a few hours in and it seems pretty clear to me. I mean they never stated it, but yeah.

    When I get to playing Zesteria I'd find it very interesting to see how it is represented in-game.
    Here are some of the hints:
    -At one point another character asks the main dude to check out the babes. He checks out the other guy.
    -Another time the same dude is talking about ladies. The other guy tells him basically that he's barking up the wrong tree with the main dude.
    -The other guy gets jealous when main dude has to be pretend married to one of the ladies
    -There's an ending thing I don't want to spoil.
    -It's basically stated that they're soul mates and the non-shippers are like "But like... FRIEND soul mates!!!"
    -They argue like a married couple.
    -Main dude knows other guy's true name, something stated to be very intimate for a seraphim (the mystical creature thing the other guy is) and something they by no means share with everyone.

    And many other little odds and ends here and there that you'll discover when you play the game!

    I feel like I missed a lot of this stuff...
