I like having Liara in my party as well. But the really annoying thing I found was when I was playing a Sentinel class the first time through. I would take aim at something with my sniper rifle and the next thing you know, Liara would send the target up in the air with Throw.

I always chewed her ass out when we got back to the ship.

I usually play with Ash and Wrex, and then switch to Liara when Wrex is no longer in my party.

As long as I had space to upgrade charm, I did. I maxed it out really fast.

When you have the option for charm\intimidate the standard dialog options are usually pretty lousy. I bet it really changes the outcome of a lot of situations.

Spoiler:

What happens on Feros if you don't charm the ExoGeni guy into continuing the colony? It seemed like a happy ending for everyone when I did that... except for the guy who blew his own head off.

Another big one for me was maxing out Electronics for Shepard and Decryption for Garrus. This way, I could get into any container or probe on any planet. I think I've only missed one probe and I've been to a crap load of planets so far. I can't imagine having to go back and drive around every one of them later on to complete the side quests that involve finding artifacts. I'm really trying to complete them all, and I'm getting very close.

It's actually quite fun being a total ass to people in this game.




*SPOILERS*



On the Krogan Cloning facility, there's a researcher that you meet.

"I was forced to work here! Thank God you came along. Now I'm saved!!!"

*BAM*



How evil and twisted can you get?

Strange, I edited my last post but it didn't save.

I just realized that I posted a couple spoilers earlier, so don't worry about it madpistol.

This forum could use spoiler tags. Normally they work like black bars that when highlighted or mouseovered the text turns white. Our white on white text works fine except a few things.

#1. On a LCD you can see the difference between the background white and the text white.
#2. New users might not know to use the white text
#3. When someone replies to a spoiler how it is now, it'll become visible because of the blue background to quoted replies.

Hehe, I shot the ExoGeni guy. He was the poster child for someone that needed to be shot!
