    I need to just write down the path through the stupid doors or something.

    You lose track of him at about the part where he and his guard start running, right?

    You start running too. The countdown doesn't stop until he stops running. Try not to get too far ahead of him.

    well obviously we defeat the reapers in a mini-game in space where a bunch of biotics warp dark energy'd suns near reapers so they blow up, while batarians form a meatshield around the normandy to protect it

    the clues are all there

    I always play Paragon Shepherd who's all for the galactic community and alien/human relations but even I like the sounds of Batarian mass sacrifice.

    No, to defeat the reapers Shepard and co. must travel to the long-long-long-long-long-long-long-long-long-lost homeworld which constructed the head [strike]vampire[/strike] reaper, and must unlock the secret to destroy them.

    With a 256-column Tower of Hanoi.

    gah

    How?

    You can take too long to get the info, and if you don't have the right stuff (sufficient P/R points or Spectre status reinstated), the lawyer pulls out his client and you leave empty-handed.

    I didn't have my Spectre status when I did his mission. I picked the Renegade option one(maybe twice) and was done, it was pretty hilarious in fact.
    Shep: "I need to know who you ordered the hit against."
    Dude: "Why the hell would I tell you that? Not like you can do anything without my lawyer."
    Shep: "I'm a Spectre, I'm above the law."(Shep says this even though I chose not to be reinstated)
    Dude: "Yeah? Where's your proof?"
    Shep pulls out his Carnifex and shows it to the guy. "I don't need proof."
    Dude: "Point taken. I sent him to take down [Turian Politician Name Here]."

    Shep and Thane walk out.

    Thane: "I think that was the shortest interrogation in history."

    I'm pretty sure every single loyalty mission and all the content on Ilium is on the second disc, including all of that dialog. There's dialog shared between discs, but not all of it has to fit on one disc.

    When you go to meet Anderson on the Citadel the first time and you talk to the council, (don't know how it works with the all human one) instead of telling them to go fuck themselves, you play nice.

    Well, considering I ended using the stock story (Council dies, humans take over, Udina is the ambassador) I wasn't able to meet with them at all. Guess I need to hunt down a copy of ME.

    So, I just finished my first playthrough of Lair. AWESOME. Really good, especially the setpiece as you approach the lair.

    I played with a female Shepard who had romanced Liara - does it play differently with male romance Shepard? Or one who didn't romance her? Or one who cheated on her? By which I mean, are there interesting alternate conversation options?

    Yea. Male vs. female only has a couple of quips, but yes, many, many, MANY different conversation possibilities. It's even different between you cheating with her and letting her down gently vs. you cheating on her and trying to lead her on.

    I think you can be reinstated whether you saved the council or not, but I might be wrong. If you saved them, they definitely do offer to reinstate you. If you didn't, I'm pretty sure Anderson still offers to do something to reinstate you.

    no, you get to pick who is the ambassador through conversations on the shuttle no matter if you imported or not since the end of game save that me1 does takes place before you make that decision in me1.

    he also didn't have the authority to release the Normandy but that didn't stop him


    just saying, he could punch all the Councillors then use their terminals to approve your status

    Let us know how it goes. Personally I couldn't be unfaithful to Liara after this intense dlc. But... in theory you could:
    tell Miranda you want to bonk her. Dump her for Liara (whom you've already bonked in ME1), bonk Liara, then go back to Miranda and get funky in the engineering space before the suicide mission.
