Also, here's the list I've been going off. This is from the Bioware site:

1.) The decision to save either Kaidan or Ashley.
2.) Whether or not the player kills Wrex on Virmire.
3.) Whether or not the player decides to save the Citadel Council at the end of Mass Effect.
4.) The player's choice of love interest.
5.) Whether the player spares or destroys the Rachni Queen at Peak 15.
6.) The player's treatment of Conrad Verner.
7.) Whether or not the player completed the UNC: Asari Diplomacy sidequest.
8.) Whether the player chose to allow the Alliance to conduct experiments on Nirali Bhatia's body.

With reference to no.8, I chose to give the body back to the husband, and stop the alliance tests.


I'm starting over because my file was deleted but this is what I plan on doing.
1. Ashley
2. Save Wrex (I hear he becomes leader of the Krogan and therefore not in your party).
3. Save Council
4. Ashley
5. Spare Queen
6. Treat him kindly if I can find him again
7. Going to complete it.
8. Gave it back to the husband.

What's the Cerberus sidequest? I believe that the level of your character is reset to 1, unless you saved with level 60 guy. Then you start at level 5 and get other bonuses.

The one you get from Admiral Kahorku about his missing marines. Anyway, who's your favorite squad member from 1 and favorite new squad member from 2? Garrus is my all time fav, because he gets the most character development, Wrex in second out of characters. Mordin's my new 2nd all time fav, all because of his singing and him giving Shepard the talk on crosspieces breeding(which i just cannot find the link for) and because him not using conjunctions reminds me of Roscrach. Leigon second, because he's voiced by Albert Wesker.

My first playthrough, I used Ashley and I want to say Wrex, then Garrus (I accidentally let Wrex die, I think). Second - Fourth, Wrex and Garrus.

Fun fact: Joker will be the only non-Shepard character you'll have direct control of. i've read this on the Mass Effect wki. I know my facts! :huh:

EDIT:But more importantly, i've heard that the text is really bad on SDTVs. Like, it's dead rising bad, and that it's like impossible to do the hacking mini game. Can anyone here verify that?

True? That sucks if it's verified. I haven't gamed on an SDTV for ages so I couldn't tell you though :S

My Dad has a HD TV, but my Mom doesn't(they're divorced). Thanks anyway. So, who's your favorite squad member from the first game? Who's your favorite squad member to premiere in the second?

My fave squad member from ME would have to be Wrex. The elevator conversations alone were sheer awesome.

"So (member), who do you think would win between you and Shepard?"

"Anyone who goes against me is either on Saren's payroll or is stupid. Killing the former is business. Killing the latter is doing the universe a favour" (or something).

Or even when you get to the Rachni Queen, and she start's talking in riddles.

"Now THIS will be a good conversation..."


As for ME2, I think I love the look of Legion. Just the idea of having a Geth squadmate who can actually talk is brilliant. Apparently though, having Legion in your party really puts Tali off, but I don't care; I hate Tali.

Really? I like Tali, though I do admit her defense for why the quarians needed to destroy the geth was majorly annoying. I took more offense to that than Ashley' "racism"(which it's not. He was pointing out that humans would be more loyal to their species and the aliens theirs. It's like countries. You may like other people and you may work together, but when your countries go to war, most people side with their birthplace).

Agreed. Ashley wasn't racist as such, and she would have been my choice of romance if I chose one in ME.

The only reason I didn't is because I wanted to romance Miranda in ME2, and from what I've read the characters you romance in ME only have cameos in ME2 so you don't romance them again in ME2. But, if you romance someone else in ME2 after romancing someone in ME, then in ME3 both relationships have disastrous side-effects, or something.

Hence, why I'm playing safe :huh:

I like Ashley's sense of humor more than any other character, which is why I'm sticking with her.

Well HOP TO IT, SOLDIER!

And, to make this post relevant to the topic:

My favorite character is Garrus.

He's a renegade cop. A renegade raptor cop. A renegade space raptor cop. In Space.

RENEGADE SPACE RAPTOR COP IN SPACE!

So you like to play as a female? I prefer to play as my own gender, i.e. male, but that's just me. Judging by that comment, you didn't romance Kaiden or Liara. Was this before ME 2 was announced and you just didn't like the, or was it after it was announced and you didn't want to be tied down for the sequel?

I play whatever whim seems to fit better, I am actually in the midst of playing it now (As up until recently I did not have a system that COULD play the first one).

And I had my eye on Garrus before I knew it was an option in the second one. He's just that awesome.
