Finished the arrival, was a fine ending and yes the fact there was no paragon option sucked. but heck my paragon actions have all been messed since I missed out on getting Jack loyal and to that end i didn't cry when she died.
I have about 900 rounds of heavy ammo I don't use. My standard weapon seems to eat through shields fast enough and i switch to another weapon for armor piercing. I play as an engineer.
all in all, I tried to warn the colonies, and I would like to know why they wanted me alive. Is it wrong of me to have had reload that part a few times to see if I could live?
