    Well default ME3 shep never recruited Jack so theres that.

    Although, mixing Mass Effect and Elder Scrolls would be.. interesting.

    But if people would die because I demand it, then Jack would have been spaced shortly after meeting her. Yeah sure, she's "redeemed" in ME3, but at the time in ME2 there is NO way I would bring someone that volatile on the ship.
    I was explaining to my brother who usually overhears me playing ME. He asked my why I kept a psychopath on my ship. I told him because Shepard was a glory whore and he tamed the untameable biotic. There isn't anything he can't do. It's the primary reason he saves most people, I saved Reegar because I wanted to do it alone, screw sharing the spotlight.

    Because not even Jack who woke up on the wrong side in TIMs bed could be as destructive or dangerous as ReneShep.

    I cant even remember her dying when i played on insanity, except when defending the missile launchers on Earth.
    Maybe your Liara is braver than mine.

    I dunno man, every time I turned my head, she was down and out for the count. And I'm like "WTH Liara!" And yes, I play on Insanity too.

    I am annoyed that he implies that a puny destroyer is Sovereign.

    The amount of money I would spend if there was a Mass Effect lego series. It's bad enough I bought the Limited Edition Millennium Falcon and Star Destroyer. Although the most gratifying thing is seeing all those little parts come together. Been trying for the past few years to get the AT-AT as well.

    How is that possible? You can't progress in the game until you've gotten Garrus/Mordin/Jack/Grunt, can you? Are you sure default ME3 Shep just didn't upgrade the Normandy armour, so Jack died on the way to Collector Base?

    Looking at the save editor, the box for "recruited" was left unticked, and the dead box is also unticked so its not a "death by bugs" thing.
    McFuckNuggets Shepard simply handles things in the most logical way possible.
    I wouldnt recruit someone like jack either.

    Also, default shep doesnt need to progress like we do.

    I don't think I would either, not after the way you meet

  12. #16132
    Having some fun with the Omega DLC, wasn't going to get it but I changed my mind. Will say more once I finish it. Also Javik, i think that is his name, seems like a wimp other than his amazing no ammo rifle you get.

    But I will say more once I finish the dlc tomorrow.

    If we're not recruiting someone based on first impressions there's a lot of people I wouldn't have recruited. Miranda, Grunt, Zaeed, Thane, Javik, Jack, and Samara.

    Miranda - snarky, appears to be as much of a glory whore as Shepard

    Grunt - an unknown, first thing he does is attack Shepard

    Zaeed - mercenary with loyalty as far as his next paycheck, meet him under questionable circumstances

    Thane - uses you as a decoy before you even meet

    Javik - first thing he does is attack Shepard

    Jack - penchant for homicide and doesn't want to play nice with Cerberus

    Samara - first thing we see is her execute an unarmed merc in cold blood, impossible to be certain she won't do the same to you if you happen to look at her wrong



    Sometimes you have to look past first impressions for a mission that important.

    Well, besides Javik(who doesn't attack shepard, just pushes her/him back) and Grunt the other people you are told to recruit by mister illusive who is your boss in 2.
    Still bitter.

    By that then Grunt doesn't "attack" Shepard either, just pins her against the wall. Either way, point still stands. And TIM tells you to recruit Jack as well.

    Everybody you recruit is more or less a loose association with you based on your name alone. Shepard, him/herself is an extremely charismatic leader. After spending awhile with Shepard, there isn't anyone who wouldn't dedicate to their cause. Hell, the people you associate with are essentially considered their top of their field by association. Merely by spending time with Shepard, they are considered a folk hero. But Shepard himself is comparable to McArthur. A great strategist, and overall good leader.

    But since he is the player, his style of leadership is the style of the player. Which ultimately is the developer's goal to make the person who is playing them more self'confident and able to take leadership roles in the work force.

    I am completely wasted right now. Thank god for auto-correct.

    I was going to mention that grunt doesn't really attack shepard, but he kind of does, he pins him to the wall with the intent to do battle. Javik just pushes everyone back because he's dazed, it's not an attack at all. And yes, Jack is on the list of people you're told to recruit too. Jacob, Garrus and Mordin as well.
    Still bitter.

    Technically it is possible to complete the mission while only recruiting Garrus and Mordin. Since afterwards, if you complete the missions afterwards. You are given a time limit to recruit the others and do their missions. So by doing any of the DLC, it counts toward that limit.

    Like I said, my point stands either way. People were saying they wouldn't recruit Jack because of how she is when they met her. There's a lot of people whom I wouldn't recruit on a first impression basis. First impressions are secondary to the mission. :P
