Austin Powers will not survive for long in Mass Effect universe

Unlike the parodic nature of the Austin Powers franchise, Mass Effect’s realm is something different. Hostile alien factions, intergalactic criminals, and godlike beings in Reapers taking over the world. Austin would find himself in a rather difficult situation, where he might not what to do aside from shagging his crewmates.

Romantic relationships in this top-rated sci-fi franchise were a key side quest that gamers loved to explore. Surely Austin would use every opportunity to interact and flirt with everyone’s favourite, Miranda. In the video, he can be seen running away from alien mobs, to his encounter with Khalisah resulting in a brawl that surely most gamers tried to explore. It is hard to follow the non-violent paragon approach, as sometimes a good old fashion knuckle sandwich can open many locked areas.

However, due to the elusive man’s generosity, the legendary commander was brought back to take on the mounting danger. Meanwhile, Austin can be seen shooting a damn pistol on a Repears guardian that fails to even scratch the surface.
