Dude Shepard, all paragon all the time, no deaths. Max level (there's probably a bonus for that, there was in 2 at least).

When you start ME3 your level from ME2 carries forward, so you'll start at lvl 30. Cap is 60 again in ME3 there's an achievement for hitting 60 anyway

I heard that your Shepard will start with the level they had in ME2. Also the level cap is suppose to go to 60 this time. Hope both are true.

EDIT: @Tomkang: son of a bitch you beat me to it.

Awesome! I was hoping they'd do that.

No way! After playing the demo I wasn't looking forward to being level 1 again. That is awesome.

That sounds wrong... I don't have any proof that it is, but I figure if they let you start at 30, then the first half (or so) of the game is going to be a cake walk (which means people will blow right through it and become bored), and that isn't what any designer wants... but like i said, i don't have any proof that your assertion is wrong, but I hope it is.

Oh the enemies scale with you. The Penny Arcade games did it where if you imported your character they started on their previous level but all the enemies scaled with them.

No, it's actually true. Level scaling.

I'm also pretty sure that the only reason they didn't do this for importing from ME1 to ME2 was because of the extensive changes they made to the combat system.

@Tomkang: I have a paragon and renegade save. On my paragon Kaiden is alive, I romanced Liara didn't cheat, everyone else is alive and Anderson is on the council. On my renegade Ashley is still alive, I romanced Ashley didn't cheat (he may be a dick but he is faithful), everyone else is alive and Udina is on the council.

I'm doing a True run through right of ME and ME2, not aiming to go paragon or renegade thou when the time comes Jacob is dead I don't like him

#16 Edited by WilltheMagicAsian (1546 posts) -

My only ME save which is a male Shep full paragon and everyone is alive at the end of ME2. I only play through these games once.

#17 Edited by stinky (1549 posts) -

Fem shep, renegade, killed Wrex, couldn't stand that frog man for questioning my orders. Kaiden dead also, what a bore that guy was.

samara is dead, evil daughter in her place. (had to play through twice to get that)

let Zaeed die and i think someone else but can't recall who. people who i didnt like.

kinda wish Grunt had died now after playing the demo as i would like to see how ME3 would have handled all krogen crew members dead.

#18 Edited by SoothsayerGB (1468 posts) -

Decided to replay 1 and 2 before release, due to severe lack of commercial hype. Going for male Shep, sole survivor, everyone dies(especially the emo metal bald female thing) cept Wrex and I. Haven't played ME since 2 so there is need for a refresher course.

#19 Posted by Deranged (1837 posts) -

If you want to get super technical:

  • Kaiden died
  • Council saved
  • Anderson on council
  • Wrex lives
  • Space born
  • Sole survivor
  • Pure Paragon
  • Everyone survived
  • Base destroyed-end of ME2
  • DLC completed
  • Rachni Queen saved
  • Colonists all saved on Feros

Can't think of anything else...

#20 Edited by TheHT (11520 posts) -

Custom MaleShep
Colonist
War hero
Vanguard
Wrex alive
Kaiden dead
Rachni Queen saved
Ashley romance
Council dead 
Anderson is councilor
Samara alive 
Normandy crew alive
All ME2 companions survived
Collector base destroyed
Illusive man told off
Mostly paragon, healthy dose of renegade
 

 serious face

I have my actual save with a male paragon shepard but I picked up a female shepard save file that I might switch to for ME3.

#22 Posted by MentalDisruption (1642 posts) -

Male infiltrator shephard. Mostly Paragon with a little renegade.

Everyone is alive except Jack and Kaiden.

Romanced Tali

Old council still alive with Anderson joining them.

Rachni Queen saved.

That's all I really feel like typing out.

#23 Posted by Redbullet685 (6054 posts) -

Played through it with a male Shep on 360 around when it came out and most people died.

Playing through it again right now on PS3 as a fem Shep and I going to try and save everyone.
