    Massive spoilers are to be in this topic. With that said, do NOT spoil anything from ME2 or ME3 unless I've gotten past it.

    Once I beat the full trilogy, I'll add an actual review to the review section. Till then, this topic just serves as my current thoughts on people/things/whatever.

    So, I got the ME Trilogy on the 360, just finished ME1. Didn't change much from my original LP (on my youtube page). Personality of my guy is basically a complete douche who does what he needs to finish the mission. If I gotta tell someone I'll protect their entire species just to get inside the base and kill everyone, I'll do it. =D

    Only difference I really made was I SAVED the Rachni. I was curious as to how it will turn out. Other than that, killed the Council because fuck them. They talk about not meddling in, but they do it anyway then they don't believe me on anything. Die and rot you prats. So now, Humanity takes over. About to start ME2 before my food is done. I do regret getting on the good side of Ashley however. She's fucking insane.

    I am interested to see your progression through this trilogy. I loved all the games and it just keeps getting better. Enjoy :)

    Well, I remember I actually played a decent amount of ME2. Since I bought the actual Trilogy box, I got the DLC for Zaeed. Just did his mission. Good God, you hear the employees screaming as they burn. o_O

    Otherwise, ME2 is going just as I remember it. Just got to the planet of the Krogan squadmate. I remember hating this planet...so this will suck. But I do love being Renegade. Just so much more fun. The reactions are priceless too. Very curious as to where the story goes in this game.

    Just did the mission to get the Assassin, Thane. Not big on the whole spiritual thing, but I'll give him a try on the team and see if he is worth having.

    Also, is it my imagination, or are my eyes glowing REALLY red? I didn't realize ME2 went the Fable route with good/bad. Gotta see if they glow bright blue now too...

    Couple things to note.

    Originally, I disliked the "ammo" system in ME1 and was happy how they changed it in ME2. I take that back. >_> Lately, I've been running out of ammo and it bothers me.

    Also, I don't recall this happening in ME1, but when we get to certain "points" of the game (big things we can't turn back from), EVERY squad member has personal things to do. I love that. IIRC, you had to actually get on the good side of your squad in ME1 to get to their stories. Fuck that. I prefer ME2's way.

    Also, Collectors possibly Protheans? That's a twist I did NOT see coming, if it is a fact anyway.

    this is actually true. I assume you have finished the collector ship at least, because that is where you learn that fact.

    Yeah, finished the ship. Got like...2 companion stories to do and I'll be heading to the reaper ship or whatever.

    But wow. Collectors are Protheans...interesting. Can't wait to see the ending for the game.

    Just got done with getting the IFF thing from the Reaper ship. Worst fucking fight ever. Scions are the worst fucking enemy. What jackass thought of those things?

    Oh, and playing as Joker was cool. =D

    What do you think of Legion?

    Is he an actual ally throughout the rest of ME2 and all of ME3? If he is, then I love him. But when I brought him onboard, I kind of felt like he is just there to help out till he dies at the end or something...

    Nah, unless you fuck up the suicide mission, he's with you 'til the end.

    Just whatever you do make sure that loveable droid makes it to 3 you will not regret it!

    Yay! Hopping on in a second, guess I'll do his story mission real quick. I'm curious as to how this will end. I don't want to fuck it up and lose someone I actually like.

    Don't worry if you know the characters it should be natural on who to choose. Just remember Zaeed's motto: "I was the only one to make it out alive."

    Currently fighting through the home base. My only hope is that there are NO Scions. uuuuugh I hate those things. Miranda and Garrus with me though, so we should dominate.

    I am guessing this is the last portion? I'm very excited. Literally shaking here.

    Mass Effect 2. Finished. A Reaper-Human. Did not see that coming. I'd rather fight that over Scions though. Still wondering who the Illusive Man is though. And where the fuck he is at. Does he ever go anywhere outside that room? Will I get the chance to kill him in ME3? =D

    Without Spoiling any details. You will face him face to face in ME. Did anyone die?

    lol Ariman, that made my day.

    Suicide mission went well. Scions aside, mission was fun. No one died. Sadly. =( Was hoping there was a "There are millions of enemies, send someone to die and give you more time" option and then I'd send Jack. I hate Jack. Starting ME3 today.
