Be a hero and do 100% completion on ME1. The mako drove me nuts before I drove it over random moons

I've been waiting patiently for ME3. If they make it a game of the same calibre as the previous two, I will be very happy.

I just recently completed a new play through of ME and ME2 with all of the DLC's and I believe I got every 100% completion on both. Of course doing that full play through has made me want to play ME3 just that much more.

Really as long as I can take my Shepard into ME3 and have my decisions made before truly affect that world, I'll be happy. I know I have done my best to befriend many races and would love to be able to get all of them to my side in the final fight. You know, Turrians, Quarians, Krogens, Asari, Geth, and all the rest.

But there is one thing I'm hoping for, I want a fight, a truly epic battle. Kind of like the suicide mission in ME2, but on a much larger scale. And I want to be able to fight beside more than just 2 people. Don't get me wrong I don't care about controlling them per-say, but would love to go into a fight with Grunt, Wrex, Tali, Ashley, Liara, Garrus, and all of the rest in one giant battle. I want that feeling of accomplishment when I finish it, very much like in ME2 but just taken to the next level. I don't know how to beat a enemy like the Reapers, but I'm sure we could leverage the military strength of the Turrians and the shear power of the Krogens to help accomplish the goals.

Remember I know the reapers are obviously attacking earth but their goal is to wipe away all organic life, so hopefully I can get the council on my side for once.

Speaking of Mass Effect, how did your guys' first game of ME2 end? I destroyed the Collector tech because f*** the Illusive Man. I really enjoyed how his character fleshed out in the game, but his xenaphobia had to be punished. I also sent Legion in through the ducts on the last level because I figured if I lost anybody, it should be the droid opposed to an organic. I also chose Garrus to lead the second team because besides Sheppard, he had the most natural leading skills. Nobody died! Did you guys lose anybody?

I was fairly neutral, leaning Paragon, throughout the game. I think the most Renegade move I made was killing the mechanic so that the vehicle was less of a threat during the Garrus pick up. I also remember pushing the guy off the edge of the tower, but he was a combatant anyways; more of a neutral move.

Send a tech through the tunnels, legion should do, but the best choice is Tali. Garrus is best choice for leader.

Otherwise..I had pure paragon and pure renegade..then I did a playthrough where I had enough paragon and renegade for either conversation options. Boy was that difficult to do

If anyone is playing vanguard, pick up the new "firepower" pack. The geth shotgun is crazy
