    Any main character can die but Garrus, I mean.

    I'm sure he'd get over Shepard eventually and find himself a surviving Turian hottie to settle down with and become the ruler of what's left of Palaven.

    I don't know...even if you don't do it yourself.

    Garrus seems like the type to sacrifice himself in a final blaze of glory...only person more likely to do so is probably Shepard.

    Ugh. There's too much truth in that. Damn you, Bioware.

    indoctrinating Garrus would be so easy

    We all know Zaeed is going to be the only survivor at the end of ME3.

    you know with Garrus' fucked up worldview it wouldn't be hard for the Reapers to convince him that nobody is truly innocent and therefore everybody must be punished and then rehabilitated into a higher form of being

    Garrus will actually be the main villain of ME3 and Zaeed will put him down, if Zaeed died then the Reapers win

    No, Shepard feeds Zaeed to the Reapers.

    his pariah dog curse will make all reapers but one instantly self-destruct. Making the war for organic survival a shooting fish in the barrel entertainment.

    There is a flaw in your argument Buttcleft. How the hell are we supposed to be able to kill Zaeed in reaper form?

    It hasn't happened to me (in fact, I'm replaying the game to ensure I save my favourite dead character from Playthrough 1 - Legion), but what happens in Mass Effect 3 if you were a complete idiot and Shepard died at the end of ME2?

    Save doesn't transfer.

    You have to upload a valid save(ME1 save or successful ME2 one) or start a new game.

    Or maybe you just get to play a ghost Shepard who just gets to watch the game play out without him. Press LT to stomp the ground in impotent rage, press RT to gargle incoherently.

    "Once I was reduced to grey goop and fed into an ancient mechanical god. Well, that wasn't going to stand, so I assumed direct control of that guddamn bastard and started fragging every bastard in sight. Reapers lost a third of their Asari task force before they knew what hit em, and Shepard's boys got the rest. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get some hard liquor in these tubes."

    Curly, your new avatar is Faith, right? It looks sort of weird to me, like it's someone's render of Faith or something. That's not from in-game, is it?

    There's nothing to import for dead Sheps, so it can't happen, but a long scene berating the player by going into intricate detail on the horrible deaths of everyone but the batarians would be hilarious.

    That's Faith, as rendered by Saints Row 2's character editor.

    Apparently Faith likes stripper poles.

    yep. just goes to show the flexibility of SR2's character creator if i can make pretty convincing characters from other games in it.

    also, playing Faith as a gang boss is hilarious :D

    Yeah, well, Mass Effect 2's character creator is really good because you can make characters that look almost human in it.

    Another insanity run finished, engineer certainly wasn't the most entertaining class but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

    Only 2 classes left for insanity now, adept and infiltrator. I think I'll flip a coin or something because I cannot decide which one to do first.

    Infiltrator is crazy easy compared to adept. I would save that for last, get the adept run done and it will be a nice easy run for your last go.

  • EnderEnder Registered User regular
    Imma do infiltrator next I think.

    Just finished insanity sentinel, was a pretty easy cruise honestly.

    I'm pretty sure every class has been declared "easy mode on Insanity" in this thread before, except Vanguard. That's why it's the best.

    Vanguard is over-hyped not all that exciting mode on every difficulty.

    Yeah, Vanguard if played like a Vanguard is challenging. Only real easy mode on insanity is Soldier, probably followed by Infiltrator shortly after. I wonder if they will nerf Adrenaline Rush in ME3.

    From what i saw they increased the cooldown time, not sure if it will stick.

    I'm wondering if they will make concussive indeed not suck.

    Honestly, as much as I poke I really dont care if Soldier is overpowered...well...beyond my personal enjoyment of it since I dont like cruise control classes but I understand why some do. I just hope they strike a better balance among the skills so it is optimal to have to use them is different situations.

    That's not just for soldier too I feel. I think one way to do that would be to have more moves like stasis that ignore or at least have some effectiveness against shields. That is why I'm interested in the new ability system. I feel that a good deal of me2 powers weren't optimized for higher diffs so it will be interesting to see how people set up their powers when given control.

    Had a lot of upgrade slots for leveling, though.

    I don't really care about relative balance too much since it's not competitive, but they should at least make the infiltrator the best with the sniper rifle. A soldier with adrenaline rush does better with the same rifle than an infiltrator specced for sniping, and has the added bonus of being better at everything else. At least skirmishing is still awesome.

    Engineer insanity is surprisingly easy thanks to 3 second drone tanking + overload/incinerate. A non-cheesed Horizon was hellish (my first insanity run), running in circles avoiding shockwaves and taking fiery potshots at the zombie horde during lulls, but the collector platforms and near every other hard spot was effortless.
