    Hmm - I'll have to interpret the "cerberus" label a bit more widely. Anyone taking the cerberus penny (zaeed, kasumi spring to mind) have to die.

    Do people realise that cerberus and terra firma are names of private equity funds in the "real world"? They should use Martin Sheen as their selling voice.

    There's only one place she can even die, and four people precede her on the death list there. You can send one as escort and take two to the boss, but that leaves heavy hitters on the line raising the average (and you'll need it low enough to kill Miranda and the person before her).

    So, uh, don't do anyone else's loyalty.

    Thanks, but ugh. Cerberus bitch. What's the list of people for dying while holding the line?

    Mordin, Tali, Kasumi and Jack. And if you choose to kill Kasumi over Tali or Jack, you're a bad person.

    But looking at it, I think it'll be impossible with loyal Miranda and all 12 party members.

    The problem is she's already loyal, otherwise it would be cake to get rid of her.

    Ah. I see.

    Also, you know playing through ME2...Jack's personal upgrade really annoys me.

    What's the point of giving a character a 20% boost to damage in their biotic abilities when their abilities do shit for damage?

    ... They ate, slept and worked. Some of them found uninteresting partners at work who they married and came home to. Sometimes they would half-heartededly thrust into each other and children were made. They lived a middle class existence until their deaths to heart disease and cancer.

    Because its extremly racist that they aren't included as a race in your squad.


    Especially since they are the best races.

    I added an edit - if you skip the multicore shielding and get the other two Normandy upgrades, you can do everyone's loyalty since Miranda will be first in line at the end (though if you skip the shielding AND skip someone's loyalty, you might lose another person).
