    Just to be sure, does your total military strength go down if you screw around? Never paid much attention to it, since I played through the game so quickly. Still, I swear I noticed my Alliance War Assets to be lower after a certain mission than before the mission.

    Just because you are a jerk doesn't mean you don't see the Value in having additional resources. You just won't be going there to save them. You'll be going there because they are another meat shield to use in your quest to destroy the Reapers. You bring up one of the flaws of most "bad" morality in Bioware systems. Its not about being "bad" but about limiting what a person does and labeling that as bad.

    Instead of exploring the motivations and reasoning that make you bad and how that applies to all the situations. Besides Jack is queen Renegade (or rather was prior to her brain washing in ME3) so renegade Shepard would certainly go and save her. Then he'd likely want to shove her out the airlock along with all her my little pony dvd's.

    But that would then make it the opposite of what you feel Paragon and Renegade is. Because wouldn't it be the paragon thing to save Earth before the final countdown? And it would the Renegade thing to ignore the countdown and do whatever you want until you feel you are good and ready?

    That doesn't make much sense. Why one a person who doesn't care about anything but himself and what he wants to do care if more get killed now or later? You aren't a renegade by not doing side missions. You'd be just as much of a renegade saving Earth right away or saving Earth 10 years from the time it was invaded. Because its all about the attitude in how you approach things and not if you've done X number of side missions.

    I hope not, because that is an even further limiting of the Paragon and Renegade system then now and really has nothing to do with your Attitude and how you act nice or mean towards others. Both a Paragon and a Renegade can find value in getting everyone and risking Earth, or getting no one and hoping you can save Earth.

    You are confused. Renegade != Jerk. Paragon != Angel.

    Renegade is a guy who bends the Rules, as much as his goal requires, even up to breaking them. His goal is not automatically EVIL. He may be saving Galaxy and be a Renegade. It's a guy who will club 100 baby seals to save 1 sentient being. Efficiency is his motto. Getting things done is his principle. Lt. Rational is his Strategic Officer. He is to moral limitations as Vulcan is to emotions.

    Paragon is a guy who follows the rules no matter what. Even if 1 sentient being gets to die, because clubing baby seals is animal cruelty.

    I really don't think I will ever play a 100% Renegade playthrough just because I miss out on many Quests and since I'm a completionist I always try to get everything I can out of a game.

    *EDIT* The only cool thing about playing Renegade is the Facial Change if you don't remove your scarring and smacking Khalisa been-senile-all-year-long in the Face.

    Looks like it will be easy to farm gold/plat this weekend with people firing missiles all over the place.

    On what Difficulty do you start using Gear? Gold or Platinum?

    The only thing on Platinum is that you encounter every boss from any of the races, right? And from what I've heard you only encounter the Boss Mobs...

    You encounter everything but collectors all at once.
    A real shame.
    You havent known the thrill of the hunted until you have a few pyros, phantoms and banshees at your ass.
    And then all the boss goons shows up, geth primes side by side with brutes, ATLASes and banshees...
    Thats when the fun begins.

    ^ He's wrong.

    Collector's are encounterable if you join or start a match that has the Collectors as the designated enemy.

    Also, you will not only get boss monsters on Platinum but you will get tons of them. There will be enough of the random mid-tier enemy sneaking in here and there, especially if the wave budget is not depleted but the budget for various boss types are emptied by killing those types.

    IE: A wave might, for instance, only spawn 5 Geth Primes, and when those are all killed... no more Primes will spawn that wave. If you focus on only bosses, you will still have more of the wave to kill, but you will only face the weaker units.

    You get collectors if you designate them but they wont spawn if you didnt, so they arent part of the platinum assault team.
    So no, im not wrong.

  13. #13613
    I guess adding a few Prets and Scions to the Slaughter would be a bit too much

    I'm curious if non-Collectors can bei possessed...a possessed Banshee would be unstoppable.

    No, you are, you are just hiding behind semantics. Your post mentioned nothing about the inclusion of the Collectors in Platinum, nor did you even open for them to be a possibility. You said, and I quote; "You encounter everything but collectors all at once."

    Your post was misleading and it was wrong. The Collectors are a perfectly playable race in Platinum.

    @Garrus Vakarian: No, only Collector units get possessed in the same way that Sabotaging an Atlas won't make it Synch-kill everything nearby while under the conversion effect.

    150 bucks, and then you have up to September, or later, to get the rest. Go ahead put a deposit on Bioware Store.

    If you have to specificly add something that otherwise wouldnt be included, then its not to be generally included.

    I generally don't use gear on bronze missions, except for things that aren't consumable. Silver, yes. Because I suck.

    I actually like it that FemShep isn't that bulky. Male Shep is way too muscular for me.

    Would you prefer a female incarnation of James as FemShep? I think she is pretty fit if you consider her cybernetics and stuff. FemShep always had that body shape even in ME1.
