Mass Effect's Hilarious, Unintended Subtitles

This article was originally published on June 6, 2012. We're bumping it up for Mass Effect week.

Like almost every other game, Mass Effect 3 has official subtitles. But that's not what we're looking at today. No, what you're about to see is what happens when people record themselves playing Mass Effect 3, upload videos to YouTube then let Google's service try and guess what's being said on screen.

It, um, doesn't always get things right.

Sure, of the tens of thousands of lines of dialogue to be found in the game (note: there's a few from earlier Mass Effect games as well), this is just a handful of examples where it says "piss", "cat" and "ass cheeks". Still. They're some wonderful examples.
