Re: Mass Effect 2

So any N7 missions I wanna do, I need to do before Reaper IFF? How much actual game play is left in the game once you start this endgame?

Oh dear, how badly have I screwed up in having 3/4 loyalty missions (Zaeed's, Thane's, the mystery character and maybe Samara's, can't remember if I did her's before or after) to do after the incident that happens due to the IFF incident?
I know that the team you bring to the very last boss fight has to be loyal or bad things will happen. Other than that, I don't think anyone outside of Bioware is entirely sure exactly what loyalty does in the endgame.

It's possible that you could still get the optimal ending.

Re: Mass Effect 2

You can do the N7 missions after the game if you want.

The optimal ending thing depends on your definition... for the true optimal ending, you'll want to have done all the loyalty quests available before activating the IFF mission.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Decided to have a little break off Mass Effect 2 so I went and played Mass Effect 1 . Doing a renegade female character with opposite Universe choices to my main character so I can experience a different Mass Effect 2 universe.

Later in week I will probably finish off Mass Effect 2 so I can read these spoiler tags

Win! Scary how Shepard's voice played in my head saying that when I read it.

Re: Mass Effect 2

So what are everyone's favorite two squad characters? I always use Miranda for her Overload ability and Samara once I got her, unless I'm fighting the Geth then I use Tali.

Garrus and someone else. I used Thane most often with Garrus, but I also used Miranda, Zaeed, Morbin, and Grunt a bit. I used Jack once and I have never used Jacob.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Won't say he's my favourite, but I did use Zaaed quite a bit primarily just as firepower. Used Miranda for her overload ability.

I also used Tali and Garrus for old times sake.

I didn't use Mordin much (though he does have his funny moments)

Re: Mass Effect 2

First playthrough I mostly used Miranda for warp/overload and Mordin because I wanted to hear him talk... and for incinerate. The two of them together can burn through a Harbinger crazy fast. I just started my second playthrough as a Sentinel which means I have warp/overload myself, so I may mix it up a bit more.

Tali is actually one of my favorite characters in ME... shame she's not that useful this time around if you're not fighting mechs/Geth.

Re: Mass Effect 2

To heck with "useful" - I love Tali to death, and brought her along on every mission the moment after I recruited her.

It means I'll need to do a second playthrough to finish off the Incinerate/Warp achievements, but oh well. I need a second anyways, as a guy, since I don't like any of the romance options for femShep. (Except maybe Jacob, but I still have qualms about anybody voluntarily signing up for Cerberus, as opposed to being railroaded into it by the writers.)
