    The Mass Effect 1 "romances" were actually far better done than the second game's... at least in the first it was semi-believable and had some progression to it. The Mass Effect 2 ones consist only of like one conversation (in which Shepard gives 'em the creepo smile) and then the sex-with-clothes cutscene at the end.

    Both games have the off-looking female, though (Ashley and Miranda). Jack's probably the best bet... I'm betting she'll have clothes and hair for ME3 since she'll have been out of prison for a while by then. And we know her face isn't going to be ****ed up (could still happen to Tali!).

    I'm thinking about going with Tali as I'm trying to stay inline with my paragon ways. Miranda seems a doucher at times so might leave her to my renegade playthrough(Or jack).

    Tali's loyalty mission was one of the best imo, storywise atleast.

    Btw, can you have a romance with Samara?

    Jack doesn't really count as a "romance" option, though.

    Quick **** under the stairs, and she gives you the cold shoulder for the rest of the game.

    If you don't sleep with her the first time, but wait for the Omega 4/suicide mission it does.

    My Shepard slept with Garrus, and that felt pretty natural. So to speak. They've known each other a long time, it built progressively and they've fought together more than anyone else in the team (including ME1), btw. Only option I felt was really viable.

    I personally enjoyed the song at Club DarkStar a bit more.


    Also
    How the **** do you keep Thane alive? Did both his and Garrus' loyalty missions as they were the only 2 I gave a shit about, but Thane was carried off by the Collector Swarms.

    You chose.... POORLY. Use a better biotic for the bubble next time.
    Samara/Morinth or Jack

    ^

    Leave Jacob out, he's ****ing useless on insanity. Miranda is handy for overload+warp but dies too easily, so keep an eye on where she's sitting. Consider upgrading your team mates with more health rather than weapon damage, you'll chew through medigel like nobody's business. Besides that big guns are the order of the day (pick Zaaed or Grunt and someone to fill the gaps in your abilities).

    With warp ammo you can more or less take down any kind of enemy, just don't expect to wear through their protection as easily as before unless you're using the widow sniper or something. :)

    Edit: Also, don't be afraid to use your heavy weapons. The M-100 is handy as hell starting out, partially because it does a decent amount of damage, but also because it knocks enemies on their asses regardless of protection (I think... armor at least). This is nearly essential if a krogan gets in close. Those mother****ers will TEAR YOU APART.

    Seeing as I cant play ME2 till I go home on the first day of May, I might download ME from Steam...though that might take a week or so haha, 30kb/s...its so painful!

    I'd like to go through the ME story again though before ME2, just to refresh my memory. Havent played are looked at the ME universe in atleast 3 years.

    Guess I could just watch one of those ME-story-in-5-minutes videos.

    Was she loyal?

    My brother did the same thing and Jack wasn't loyal and that happened.

    Nope, I thought the loyal ones stayed alive.

    Gotta do it again now. Never did like Jack though.

    i finally kept my unloyal jack alive by never picking her for any tasks, always keeping her and miranda apart (which means always keeping miranda with me and not leading a team that had jack in). everybody else was loyal.

    i used tali as tech specialist, samara as biotic, garrus as second squad leader both times, and i sent zaeed back as escort. as i said, i always kept miranda with me and left jack with the others. every other variation i tried always left me with a dead jack or dead team member, whether i kept her with me, used her as a specialist, sent her as escort etc etc.

    finally, everybody lived! happy happy joy joy :E

    I still haven't gotten around to even opening my ME2 CE, simply because I haven't had the time to do my final ME1 playthrough, the one I plan on using for ME2.

    Last Mission Spoilers

    **** You Miranda. I trusted you to keep the barrier up and you didnt pull through. Because of you I lost one of the best characters. Legion. GODDAMN LEGION. I hope you are happy, because I'm never using you for the final mission again.

    Uhh, she's a biotic/engineer. Nice job choosing the most specialised character for the job.

    I wish there was more drunken shepard dialogue or just generally more stuff to do while drunk.

    Seeing him hit on women would've been hilarious.

    All that matters is the loyalty thing.

    Also, Miranda is a bitch.

    But only some biotics are capable of doing it without killing your teammates.

    Yeah but those hips are hypnotic. Love a woman with a body like that.

    I get a feeling she will be accompanying me as well as..maybe..hmm..Tali or Thane the most.
