Yeah... I heard even Miranda expresses some doubt in your decision to leave the base to Cerberus. You know you likely have messed up somewhere when even she disagrees with a significant pro-Cerberus decision such as that. Anyway, I destroyed the base. As much as giving the base to TIM seems like a good idea, I just wanted to give the guy the middle finger once in while. Hopefully, I'm not going to regret it.

I was surprised when I discovered that.

Mark Meer adopts a rather stoic, military persona as the male Shepard, (which some might find boring), but his role as Jethann, the male elven prostitute demonstrates that he can bring out different personalities with his voice.

My coin is on IM's cyber-eyes turning him into Saren V2 and he's a puppet for the Reapers.

Playing ME1 again, and... was there ever a way to turn helmets on or off? I vaguely remember this being the case, but I can't for the love of my life remember how.

The equipment window, there's a 'toggle helmet' button

*nod* And I always loved it in ME1. I could run around without it and simply switch it on in combat situations.

Was a little disappointed that I had to choose in the ship if I would wear it or not in ME2.

That's because helmets aren't just cosmetic in ME2--they actually provide separate bonuses, except for some of the DLC armor that can't be broken up into pieces.

I usually just use the visor from the Citadel because that little headshot bonus makes it a lot easier to one-shot-kill people with the Phalanx pistol. Rarely do I get that little tiny sliver of life remaining.

Still no reason to left out a "toggle helmet" button.

But maybe it was similiar feedback that made them put one into DA2.

Srsly hope ME3 has more melee attacks or techniques. I love playing Vanguard and having more than just a tackle-buttstroke would be awesome. Gotta love the Charge > buttstroke > shotgun blast to the face combo. Would be cooler with different melee attacks.

True, I'm quit interested in this "every class has access to unique close-quarter attacks" myself.

It worries me that Tali still isn't confirmed when other "minor" character like Legion and Mordin is.

Depending on how you completed her loyalty mission (if you do it by using the Charm or Intimidate options or grandstanding the trial) then there's a high chance the Admiralty Board will promote her to her father's former position.

I suspect Tali will have a big role in ME3, specifically getting the Migrant Fleet on your side to fight the Reapers, but I don't think she'll actually be a squad member--unless they write an entirely different path (which would be a lot of dialogue to record) for Tali'zorah vas Normandy (you agreed to keep her father's involvement silent and could not either use the Charm/Intimidate options or grandstand the trial).

Let's all Post Our Shepards!

Nobody likes her! Nobody ever did! It's a good thing Bioware understands that! It's time to forget about that silly alien and move along!

Well it's the middle child so they can't have too many deviances from the major lines. With the third since its the end they should have more opportunities.

As far as I'm concerned, it's his best role to date. At least he shows genuine emotion, his Shepard voice on the other hands sounds so bland and tranquil like.

And my sentinel Shep for greater justice. She is pure renegade, don't let the plastic pretty face fool you!

I can't play Sentinel or Adept, it's just too frustrating. They're good at not dying, but not so good at doing damage. >< Soldier is just boring. Infiltrator was more fun in ME1, still very useful in ME2 though.

Vanguard's my favorite, which is funny--Vanguard sucked balls in ME1, but Charge makes it oh so awesome. It's just so much fun to get in a big room full of bad guys and bounce back and forth between them like a Shepard-pinball, Charge, punch, shotgun to the face, rinse and repeat. Just wish my dumb shotgun held more than three shots.

A rough and tough Vanguard up-close-and-personal Renegade, that's my Commander Shepard. About 1/4 Paragon, 3/4 Renegade. Good to my crew, ruthless to everyone else.

Tali fans were legion on Bioware's forum during ME2. My guess is that they are delaying the announcement to make things more interesting through the long, long, long wait

I guess it'll show itself in Mass Effect 3 properly as the game railroads Cerberus into being your enemy anyway no matter how much of a Cerberus fanboy you might be in Mass Effect 2.
Perhaps, but I base my decisions not on morality or even logical thought.

I base my choice on "what kind of setup would make the third game interesting in a convoluted way"

Why play it safe? The more wild cards the better.

Hey, if I was given a choice to make my own Reaper in ME3.. I would totally do it.
