    Prequels can be good if they are not done with horrible writing and Hayden Christensen. Though I do agree I would like a new story in ME universe rather than a prequel. As long as I can be a Krogan or a Batarian protagonist. Maybe an Asari Justicar? Well, maybe not, it would not be much fun when the conversation wheel turns into "Paragon, Neutral, Renegade, "Let's check Justicar code book".

    Justicar code is usually quite simple: If they did something bad, kill them. If they tried to stop you from doing anything, kill them. If someone defended themselves from somebody else, who attacked on vague reasons, during which one of the parties got hurt, while another lost someone and it is hard to decide who was in the right... kill everybody involved.
    It's astonishing how confused people get when a sentence does not end as they potato.

    Just a bit polished version. I mean Samara would've been forced to kill the police who captured her on ME2 if Shepard wouldn't have recruited her. So yeah.. A pretty simple code when you think about it.

    i guess garrus code is if it is far away kill it. pref with a sniper rifle, and also rockets are good for the turrian diet
    someone else might have gotten it wrong.

    This is probably the first time an ending to a video game have made me feel depressed.

    I want a prequel where you play as a prothean, or an alien race during a previous cycle who are in the middle of fighting each other, with no reapers anywhere. Or a game that explains who built the reapers, not just a hologram which says it did.

    so my brother has spent about 100 dollars on specter packs, he how has the geth shotgun at level 8 and one shots pretty much everything on gold except brutes/ravagers/atlas/banshees/geth primes
    I have spent no real life money and still have the geth shotty at level 1 and it takes me 3 shots to kill the basic trooper/cannibal

    fair?

    The Harbringer didn't make an appearance in this game, so no need for prequel rubbish yet

    LOL that reminds me I was playing the demo with a friend, as a vanguard and she was...something else. Dont remeber. Anyway, she gets downed and I'm like "oh gosh, gotta save her!" So I charge to the trooper thats about to crush her face in, and start rezzing her. As I'm doing this I swing the camera around to see if any enemies are incoming. Oh look...the atlas spawned here, with friends. -.- She was like "Yeah, I was surprised you'd charge in with the atlas." Yeah, thanks friend for the warning.

    But truthfully, everyone is stupid like that. I've had several randoms that decide to go off on their own and end up dying...A LOT. The best way to get through Silver and Gold is to 1.stick together. Going off alone tends to get you killed. 2.Make use of the Survival Kits (instant shields/health), 3. Try and save med. packs for near the end. Same goes for rockets. 4. Kite, kite, kite. Save the big guys for last and take out the little ones. ^^

    Also, turian sentinel is more certainly baws. I miss my turian so much. *sniffle* I want him already. Dont want these silly salarians or asari. :<

    Even if it's not MP, try Energy Drain as your bonus power on a Vanguard. Helps resolve the lack of "boom" against shielded / barriered opponents and is ridiculously strong with its drain component and its small CD and you can even damage health with it^^

    Full leveled Vanguard makes a shitton of fun, but I don't see how he is viable past normal difficulty. Highpowered Disciple X with 50% accucary and 25% more damage makes a nice ME 1 full-leveled spectre shotgun-sniper^^
    True, but the difference is that in GTA3 you're only shooting (and robbing, murdering, having sex with, etc) pixels. In WOW you get the pleasure of dealing with some of the most despicable human behaviour you'll ever witness.

    On the plus side: He spent $ 100 and you didn't. It's not really a competitive game, so I personally don't think it's that bad.

    Yeah, I hate that too. But to be fair, once I tried out a Vanguard I started charging around like mad too, it's just so much fun

    But I quickly changed back to Sentinel afterwards, so my team didn't have to suffer for me

    Can someone tell me how much of a difference it is between playing with and/or without an imported savegame?

    Is it worth while playing the prequels again just to get a nice savegame or are the effects minimal anyway?

    Depending on what you do in the other games the differences could range from 0 (you somehow play through exactly how a new game sets you up) to basically playing a completely different game. Overall if you have a save I'd use it but otherwise I'd just play through the basic new game (assuming you have played the other games on say a different system, if you haven't played them at all do it).

    With an imported playthrough you can meet some of the people who you've met along the way and most of them will accompany you against the Reapers. There's also some choise that you've made in the past that affect your chances and possible choices on ME3 if you import a saved game. One of the biggest one that comes to mind is that if you saved Maelon's data on the genophage cure or not. Ummm... What else... Those are the ones that come to my mind quickly. I've only played with imported saves, though.

    Either Quarians or Geth are likely to bite the dust, if you don't use a savegame.
    He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

    I was severelly dissapointed in the lack of a mutual destruction option.
