There is what seems to be a female Krogan on Tuchanka. It could just be a weird male, I guess. The novels stated that female Batarians look almost identical to males, as well. As for Tali, lesbian romance dialogue was recorded, and can be found on Youtube. Unlike with Ashley in the first game, they seem to have simply truncated the relationship for femshep, where in ME1 Ashley's dialogue was just sent in a more benign direction.

Liara's change annoyed me too, did Shepard dying really make her change so much? I think there is still good in her but shes caught up in underworld politics and trying to out maneuver or out do the shadow broker

I think something happens to Liara in Mass Effect Redemption comics that made her cold blooded.  The first two issues of four is already out and the third one should be coming out soon.

If you mean the one during Mordin's loyalty mission then she is covered by a red sheet, denying any close inspection. If thats not the one you mean, can you be more specific?

I dont suppose you have any links? If not Ill just have to do some looking tommorrow

I meant the ambassador. Had a really strange voice, and was smaller. As for Tali, I can't find it in the chat logs, so you'll have as easy a time finding it via searching as I would.

Tali unmasked is Wrex.jpg
This one's my personal favourite:


Also, my copy of ME1 finally arrived.  Just rescued Liara and I've already accidentally romanced her.  Son of a bitch.

I like how Garrus defies gravity.

I should've taken some screenshots of my playthroughs, had some funky stuff happened to me as well :P

Where did you get that hate? I only found 2 other helmets, and maybe 2 other pieces of armor in my first play through.

Yeah, I've never seen that beret.  I think it'd look great on my Soldier.  Is it a female-only thing?  DLC?

By hate I'll assume you mean hat; it's NPC wear that's been made available by modifying Coalesced.ini. Google it, instructions are all over.

Well, there's one ME1 save file in the bag.  Wrex, Rana, Shiala, Ashley and the Council all lived; Kaidan died; helped Rachni Queen and Gianna, stupidly gave no suggestion for the human Council member, and there'll be a picture of blue girl on my desk.  I want another file going with no date, a recommendation for Anderson to join the Council, and as many of the personal quests as I can get done (first file only has Garrus').

So this Mass Effect thread is alive and kicking. And another thread brought up something terrible and potentially inspiring as well.

I give you the Mass Effect Kink Meme. It is NOT WORK SAFE.

If you just rescued Liara, you didn't romance her yet. You can't romance her for a while, assuming you started with rescuing her. The romance doesn't reach the point of no return until after the third planet.

Oh I'm so mad at Mass Effect 2 right now.

Spoiler!









In order to have everyone survive the mission is really strict. You need 100% Paragon or Renegade. You need to have the loyalty of everyone on the team, and you need to talk all their conversations trees to some kind of end. (Romantic interests equals drop the other person etc.)

Because now matter what you fukken do. You're going to lose a disloyal squad member.

End Spoiler








So lets just say Tali isn't going to be coming back from one of my Mass Effect 1 import games.

On my first playthrough, I lost Tali and Thane.  I teared up for Tali, because it was so sudden. 

On this playthrough, I'm working to get everyone through alive.

Wrong. The loyalty missions do determine how everyone survives the last assignment, but romance doesn't quite factor into it. Just because you shagged one of the members you can be loyal with his or her counterpart.

You don't need to lose any disloyal squad members as long as they do not do anything vital (or not placed in your actual team) during the final mission. You'd be surprised how far a full Paragon or Renegade bar can carry you even if you do not immediately bring their missions to their favoured endings (think Zaheed, for instance; fucker is a loose cannon, but you can Paragon him to be loyal).

I do agree this game does seem to favour full Paragon/Renegade again. Still, you can be pretty darn Paragon while headbutting Krogan left and right.

In this game, who you romance doesn't matter, but the developers did say that in ME 3, that it would have serious consequences if you choose to cheat on your love from ME 1.

But it's hard not to want to romance someone in ME 2.  Garrus is really cute and Thane is just sexy.

Loyalty missions arent the only thing that determine team survival in the last mission. My first, second, and third play throughs I did everyones loyalty and succeeded in all of them. Yet in every play through when I do the vents, whoevers in the vents gets killed at the end. Doesnt matter who I put on the job, they end up taking an RPG to the face.

If I put the same people on any other job, they do fine. So I dont know what criteria is for getting everyone out alive but loyalty missions and upgrades arent the only thing that effects their survival

Who you pick to do what at the end phase is pretty crucial as well. For the vents it's only Tali and Legion I think.

I usually put legion in charge of it (mostly since hes best used as a sniper which is what I almost always play) and he gets killed every time. I've reloaded the save and picked every other tech specialist and the same thing happens, RPG to the face. Ive also seen a video where someone put Mordin in there and he succeeded so I know its not just Legion/Tali and the play throughs I've done have proven that loyalty missions aren't the only thing that effects team survival

Team 1 and 2: Jacob, Garrus, Miranda
Vents: Tali, Legion
Send back crew: Mordin
Biotic shield: Jack/Samara/Morinth
For the final battle, it's recommended to take your weakest people, as they do not contribute to the door defense. Tali, Thane, etc

Get all loyalties, buy all character upgrades. I never lose anyone.
