It's already common knowledge that any character who died in your ME2 won't be in ME3. So that pretty much answers any questions on who will be in ME3. Who you'll be able to recruit is still unknown.

And Liara if she dies there will be a riot. Especially after the DLC for Mass Effect 2 she is kinda vital.

Plus they have to keep some safe because Mass Effect 4. Although i can see all minor characters dying and endings where Shep lives or dies.

As long as ME3 has Jack, Miranda, Garrus, Zaeed ill be happy

IT really depends on who you'll be able to team with, which from what I've heard, won't be as many as ME2.

And Joker is probably the only character who's safe.

So lets say your F Shep slept with Liara in the first one and Thane in the second she wont be able to romance in ME3

They wont just watch Mass Effect in ten minutes on youtube and buy ME2 for PS3.

On the PS3 version you just play through an interactive comic were you just make the choices as to what happened in the previous game.

OK, I have read through this entire thread and can tell a few of you folks are Mass Effect light weights. If you have not played through both games at least 3 times as a paragon and renegade you are really just missing out on some of the finer things in life. I have been replaying ME nonstop for the past year and a half now and am still finding new things. Granted it is becoming kind of a religion for me now, but I digress.

Since nobody has played ME3 yet except for the awesome people at Bioware I do not consider there are spoilers yet. You may not want to read the next line if you are fragile to post game release rumors.

One little nugget that is relevant to this thread is that if you romanced a different person in ME1 than in ME2 there will be a love triangle for you affection in ME3.

With all due respect to wrestling this is the best thread on the site.

I was thinking about ME3 the other day. I wonder if you will still be able to get an Asari lap dance at the strip clubs like in the first two games? I might feel a little bit bad about that while Earth is burning, but you have to have priorities I guess. If you can that should definitely get you some renegade points.

Just finished proper Marathon play of ME1 still love that game even if the 2nd one is sooo much better.

Did all the missions spoke to everyone about everything and didnt skip wht they were saying and turned subs off.

Took me 24 hours LOL

Going to do Mass Effect 2 over the next few days/weeks because this will take around 40 hours to do.

Dont know who to chose as my duo though. I had Garrus and Tali in ME1 but not sure who i should use now.


@Bodom

I just was informed about the romance angle thing.

If you have had sex with one character in one game and they are still alive you can only have relationships with that person.

BUT if you have sex with 2 different characters over the 2 games rivarlies will start to happen and a love triangle will work.

But if you havent had sex in either game you can have sex with anyone no matter if your MaleShep or FemShep. Appartenly anyone party members past and present can become your Shepards lover.

And i thought my Femshep having sex with Garrus was weird ^^^^^

So hey, all this talk of how great Mass Effect is around these parts has made me finally take the plunge. Saw the first one for £8 preowned in grainger games today, so I thought i'd get it and give it a shot. I know that the second one is supposed to be loads better, but I couldn't really play a sequel without finishing the first one. Now bear in mind that I think i'm allergic to RPGs so this is a risk me for me. I'm gonna start it tommorow, wish me luck!!
