    i never understood that. What is so wrong with an editor having it's own digital distributing plateform. Origin is a good plateform now, having discount as deep as steam in most cases. Mass effect 3 is currently 6€. That's pretty good for a game that came last year.

    and one thing i like better on origin, compare to steam, is the clarity of DLC available for the game. On the game page you can clearly see the DLC available, their price and those already installed.

    Considering it requires Origin to actually run, I highly doubt it. Origin is as integrated into ME3 as Steam is integrated into Counter Strike.

    Never really understood how people can be Renegade anyway. Killing Mordin, dafuq man. Being an ass to all those lovable characters, ugh, I get a bad feeling just thinking about it.
    Who says you have to kill Mordin to be renegade? My Renegade Shepard killed Mordin only once, and I never finished that playthrough because it felt so bad, especially after Wrex tried to kill me. But my next Renegade Shepard didn't kill him. She aimed a gun at him, but couldn't fire on an old friend.

    The way origin handles DLC is a motherfucking stroke of genius, steam definatly should try use the same system.
    Blizzards own "steam" have something similar thats smooth as snake scales.

    And Mordin, i love his despair death scene, but i always keep him alive.
    Except for one run just to get Wrex on the party.

    Man, you cant let those space lizardvikings run free.

    First she was completely blind to see that the alliance was denying help to the people in the terminus systems.

    Then says how changed shepard is because he is "WORKING FOR CERBERUS!1" Even though he's just working "with" them, and just because there's no other way to stop the reapers and help people out. The council couldn't care less if he was alive or dead so shep was out of options.

    Then on ME3 as we are working together to stop the earth invasion, she just keep whining over and over why she can't trust shepard.

    If you don't trust shep just leave! Omg, just take a shuttle and go do something else! But nope. she has to stick around and do that.

    Then when the elevator thing happened, gives shep no benefit of the doubt, goes straight to " I KNEW IT ALL ALONG! f'ing cerberus operative!"


    So yea, good riddance.


    Also, my shep was never "100% renegade" I like to keep my renegade shepard as someone who will do what it takes to get the right thing done. No talk, no reasoning with bad guys. My paragon is the opposite, I try to resolve everything without fight/bloodshed.

    I've never killed mordin with either.

    Yes, there is that. And, still, I freaking love Ashley, not romantically of course since Liara is there, but still. She is a very loyal Alliance soldier and keeps her loyalty even when her favorite commander denies the Alliance and invites here on board. Yes, she is a bit thick, but, still, such a loyalty is very rare. Alliance is happy to have her, and she definitely deserved to be promoted into Spectres after ME1 events right away.

    And I always kept her in team. And killed Kaidan. Don't know why, but he really didn't make an impression on me. The same Karth Onasi who has gotten quite annoying after 10+ KotoR walkthroughs.

    Weird, I've only had one or two KotoR playthroughs where I've had Bindo and Juhani survive. Most other times I've ended up killing them. It was the same thing for KotoR 2, I was only able to convert the Hand maiden into being a Jedi. I had no idea that all the other human companions could be Jedi as well. So when I converted Atton, I was quite surprised (this came to me this year as well). I didn't look into the walk through guides, just stumble my way through and find out new things all the time.

    Ashley's best talent is being roasted by nuclear hellfire.

    The first time I didn't manage to persuade Juhani to return to the enclave, even though I'd spent literally all the points into "Persuade" skill and had quite good Charisma. So I thought it was impossible and killed her the next 4 or 5 walkthroughs. When I learnt that she could be saved... I started a new walkthrough that very day.
    I didn't like her that much as a companion though. She felt too whiny and generic. But the fact that I saved her from the Dark Side... Well, I like to do good things, even if I end up having someone in my team I don't like.

    As for Jedi companions in KotoR 2, I never really bothered converting them to Jedi. I used only Kreia and Visas in my team anyway, switching Kreia to Mira when she leaves, so Mira is the only companion I converted into Jedi every time. Also, since I love power builds, I never level Mira before she becomes a Jedi, so I always have to fight that wookie (don't remember his name as I've never recruited him anyway) with Mira being level 2... The only way I manage to do it is through an exploit in the engine: I get close, hit him, instantly save before he hits me back, load the save - and the round restarts and I get to hit him again. The fun thing is that I also have to do the same with all other enemies in the area, and there is a lot of them, and they all are very durable... I really hate that mission now.

    It's as if you are describing me. I did a Dark Side playthrough of Star Wars The Old Republic (Sith Sorcerer), but I made nothing but Light Side decisions. I just can't be that guy to kill here and be an ass there. I'd much rather be respected/loved than feared/hated. Both are powerful motivators, but in the end, I think respect/love come out on top.

    Even pointing a gun at him is wrong. It shouldn't have even crossed her mind, in my book. I will never ever do any Dark/Renegade playthough in any game. I hated that I had to (spoiler for Battlefield 4 ending) choose between those two characters at the end of Battlefield 4.

    Still need to start that second playthough of ME3 with all the DLC, but I'm having too much fun with other games and not to mention the fact that I dread having to do a lot all over again.
    Statix will suffice.

    related to bf4 ending: you can actually not choose any of them at the end of BF4 xD but they destroy your ship...
