I can understand just from a technical standpoint why saving the council doesn't drastically change things, just because of the sheer amount of stuff they'd have to make specifically for each starting point. But I'd still have liked to see it have some effect on the game.

My thought that since the Council was pretty much non-existant in ME2, they may have a bigger role to play in ME3.

@ Anybody who's finished the game: What upgrades do you recommend the most, not including the ship upgrades?

Any armor upgrades and the skin weaves or whatever they're called. I also recommend maxing out the weapon you like to use the most.

And as for my teammates?  Like there's the Mordin omni-tech thing, the Krogan armor, all the weapons upgrades that pertain to the various guns they use...should I take those into consideration or focus on my own weapons and abilities?

Definitely take them into consideration. The geth sniper for Legion and the krogan shotgun for Grunt are a must.

Thanks mang!  Now if only I didn't have to go back to college tomorrow, I might just tackle the suicide mission in the morning. :laugh:

Unless you really hate mining, just do them all. You can get everything but the Element Zero upgrades fairly easily.

Hourglass Nebula has some great spots for mining, half the planets there are rich.

I wish I hadn't gone neutral with my paragon/renegade thing; now I can't get Jack's loyalty back, and it's looking like things with Tali won't go so hot either.

You should've went balanced! Both my paragon and renegade gauges are in the last capsule, if you will, in the gauge.

Oh, when I said neutral I meant I'm balanced, just apparently not enough.  I really just need to find some more missions to boost my renegade score, as it's slightly higher than my paragon score.

Yeah if you go with the neutral responses too often you get screwed over in the end, which sucks because oftentimes they're the only reasonable response there.

I went neutral the whole game and I didn't get screwed over. I stopped the fights between Jack, Miranda, Legion and Tail without losing any of their loyalties.

Obviously you didn't if you had the paragon/renegade scores to get to do that.

I had both options available (The paragon and the renegade ones)! So I obviously did!

Whenever I watch that Fox News report on ME I fill with a uncontrollable rage. It's amazing how such ignorance can be aired on news channels.
