Either one would've been brilliant if handled properly.

@Karuma: The percentage (readiness) only increases if you play the retarded multiplayer.

To make the Reapers leave a system, go do a mission (any will do, even an N7 sidequest). They'll be gone when you're done.

So who are your favorite squad mates?

I generally take Liara (stasis is boss) and randomly switch out the other characters for random missions.

Prothean is pretty strong with his Dark Channeling and Lift Grenads (ridiculous damage). Garrus is okay with Overload, ammo, and concussive shot.

Anyone with an assault rifle is actually pretty good at doing damage with the modded Particle Rifle (since squad mates have unlimited ammo).

Tali is pretty good against Geth.

EDI/Ashley are okay, but their skill sets just don't seem to be as useful. Finally, Vega just seems completely useless. Terrible character too. I don't think I've used him since I've gotten a 3rd squad mate.

These endings for these games usually are subpar......

Other than that it's a great game.

Ok this has made the most sense to me so far, in fact, it makes the game ending A LOT BETTER if you do this.

Liara and Javik are the best squadmates gameplay-wise, but I roll Liara and Garrus because that was my ownage squad in ME1.

I feel so sorry for you.

Man you guys are fast, I still haven't seen Tali in the game yet o__o

I'm rather pissed that that ME3 skimps out on some of the cooler companions from ME2 (which imo is still the best in the series) such as Thane/Grunt/Miranda to be playable.

I really dislike EDI in this game. Ugh. Trying not to spoil anything, but I dislike Bioware's move regarding EDI, anyone else feel this way?

Also, holy cock and balls, everytime I go to the damn citadel: SHIT TON of side quests!! Being slightly compulsive about my questlog, I hate it when I have too many sidemissions, and I end up doing all these damn little side quests, scanning things left and right..

I've only played till Priority : The Citadel II thus far, but honestly, the new squadmates have been pretty lack-lustre.

Part of the problem is that they don't mesh with the... chemistry of the game events well, imo.

Well glad I am not bothering with that. Thanks.

Spoiler:
I thought about this, and I decided that if this was their intent, I'm even more angry than just assuming the ending sucks balls, is full of inconsistencies, deus ex machina and bad writing.

Because if your suspicions are true, the ending is nothing but blatant DLC pandering. You don't plan for your game's ending to be in a fucking DLC. That's just low.

I was also annoyed and put off by what they did with EDI. Until later on regarding Joker. Then it became much more amusing.

I played the entire game with Liara and Garrus, except on missions I was required to use others (Tali, Ashley, etc). I did this mostly because those two were my "ownage squad" from ME1 and it was nice memories.

I loathe Vega and the bimbo reporter modeled after Jessica Chabot. Both of them feel excruciatingly out of place in the Mass Effect universe.

Seriously, this was my reaction upon discovering that James Vega was not only voiced by, but also modeled after Freddie Prinze Jr.:

Square-Enix and Konami have done this.

Gamers are starting to become increasingly annoyed with how the industry, having gone mainstream, has started to treat us more like bundles of potential revenue and not actual humans.

I remember a time in gaming when this wasn't so. And in certain areas of the gaming industry--specifically indie games and Eastern European developers--this is not so. I would include mobile gaming in this paradigm, but it seems that mobile game developers have wholeheartedly embraced the "free to play with microtransactions" paradigm, which is a goddamned blight upon gaming.

I know, I was just saying. This isn't exactly without precedent.

Except that these people are, unfortunately, a vocal minority. Most seem to buy games very blindly.

I happen to enjoy multiplayer for a few reasons:

1. Purely PvE, so you while there are idiots on your squad sometimes the necessity for teamwork in fighting the AI is there, and it's practically required.

2. No rankings, leaderboards etc. so it doesn't demand that you get competitive.

3. You can easily pop in for a 15-20 min game and stop.

Overall I like it because it's a nice casual distraction. It's not a "heavyweight" like pure MP shooters, but it gets the job done enough to be enjoyable in it's simplicity.
