LOL! So true.

First time I played through the game, I was Paragon all the way. The second time through I was Renegade and an ass to everyone, and didn't care about the outcome. Which was pretty fun as hell. Now I'm currently on my third time playing through this, and I really don't care for anything. But the funny thing is that I'm still seeing new dialogue and events!

I have a Sentinel build now with specialized Assult Rifle skill, and I'm plowing through everything with no mercy. The achivements make it so damn fun!

I have a question to others that have played it through with a Sentinel. I'm not sure if it's class specific, but did any of you get a quest on the Citadel with spoiler start - the Rogue AI computer skimming credits from the Flux casino? - end spoiler. Never seen that until now.

I always got that quest, and completed it. ::

I reinstalled ME today and finally it's working, and not just working ok, it's running great. Which is good because the Disc read errors on the 360 were driving me nuts.

Just did my first elevator ride. I'd heard they hadn't sped them up, but I can see they are much much faster. The Normandy lift on the 360 would take 15-20, on my copy here it takes 2-3! I know it's not much, but for someone who played the 360 version 5+ times it's a big deal.

I am a little bummed a few textures are still the low res 360 version, especially on the 'lesser' characters, sure you don't see them much, but it really breaks the flow. ::

I also like the fact I can use the console to recreate my 360 character without have to start from scratch. :: I'd miss my Spectre X gear too much. ::

Hope I don't run into the Kaiden Liara bug. Those two are 2 out of the 3 possible romance quests. I'd hate to miss out on a little girl on alien girl action. ::

Wow, Kaiden is a romance possibility? I take it that's only for female characters.

That's a pretty rare thing in games. Most female player characters in games turn out to be feminist lesbians for some reason.

Ah ok. Thanks guys!

My first character was a custom female Shepard, and got some alien action with Liara. I was a little at first, too.

Check this out.

Most Bioware games have an option for female characters to have a hetro relationship. Carth in KotOR, Sky in Jade Empire, that smart guy in KotOR 2 :: and I'm sure NWN had some guys too. I only ever played through those as male characters. Of course Bioware games also have the option for gay relationships. Juhani, Sky again (He was bi), Silk Fox.

lol... nice. I knew I should have played this game through as a female. Hey.. I wonder if you can be a player in this game and get with all the possible female characters... lol. Right now it looks like I am lining up with Ashley... it appears all I have to do is listen to her BS stories after a major mission and be nice to her.... again... much like a real women to get into thier pants.. haha. The combat system does not bother me... feels like Tomb Raider...

Yeah, it's a mod. They basically replaced the male Shepard with the female version. There's also a mod that allows you to play as any of the party members already.

Would be kind of interesting to see Wrex and Ash.


or even Wrex on Wrex. ROFL.
