I picked a female character as I'm not the sort of man who likes to spend the majority of my time looking at another man's backside. Needless to say Kaiden isn't geting in my panties either.

Lol.

Same here.

Third person games, female characters. Going to spend days perched in voyeur position for poaching some guy's behind? Nay.

Needless to say it's the third playthrough and Liara's getting her work cut out, definitely.

Starting over.. again.

This will be my 3rd time reseting this thing. Started off as an Infiltrator but had no damn clue what was going on. Just fumbled my way around and tried to figure crap out on the fly. Was getting my ass handed to me pretty good (veteran).

So.. started over as a Vanguard which was fun but didn't take my time with side quests. I rushed the game and got to the end pretty damn fast. Turns out it makes the game pretty hard if you are a low level and are trying to fight the end boss. *small spoiler* I pretty much knew I missed about half the content when I got back to the Citadel for the big showdown. */spoiler*. Instead of persevering with my puss character, I am going to start from scratch since people are saying the DLC is going to let you use your existing character.

Probably going to go the Vanguard route again since that telekinesis stuff is pretty fun. I'll see if I can put of some screenies this go around. Noticed there is hardly any here. I also will be exploring every nook and cranny I can find for side quests.

Quick question. What are the best crew guys to consistently use? I was thinking since I am going to be a biotic user that Tali and Ashley would give me a good balance of combat and tech. Seems it would also add to my pimpness if I rolled with two chicks all the time. I'm also having a tough time unlocking the extra dialogue options. Most everytime I see them, they are grayed out and unusable. Any trick to that or is it tied directly the Paragon/Renagade alignment?

It is tied to your charm/intimidate skill.

As for crew members, I liked to roll with Wrex and Vakkarian.

Speaking of Wrex. (Wrex fate spoiler) *Is there anyway to save him or is he destined to die? I tried a few different tacts at the point where he gets shot but all ended in either me shooting him or Ashley shooting him.*

I would like to use him more if it wasn't for the above.

Ditto here, I don't I ever used other characters, oh wait I used Garrius on the Citadel when you first meet him.


Thats about it.


Oh wait, I had Ashely on shotguns but other then that, same combo

Well just started over. Had to ditch the nVidia 175.xx drivers cause they are a PITA. Issues with the few games I tried them on (all sorts of glitches with ME). Also had problems with some 3D graphics programs I used. Anyway..

Here a few screen shots from the beginning. Kinda wallpaper worthy shots. I decided against the Vanguard and went with the Infiltrator with shotgun bonus ability. Gonna miss the Lift and Throw but.. aw well.
