Mass Effect 3 characters... (no spoilers as far as I know)

#1 Posted by arkadysmile (145 posts) -

I was just replaying Mass Effect 2 and I really want Anderson to join up with Shepard in the 3rd and kick some Reaper ass. Enough sitting on the side lines, time for Keith David to take charge. Who else would be a good fit for your last crew?

Character list should be: Miranda, Garrus, Mordin, Grunt, Thane (maybe), Jacob, Joker, Tali, Legion, Jack (maybe), Zaeed (DLC), Samara (maybe), Dr. Chakwas (not fighting),  David Anderson, and maybe Wrex's clan will assist you at some point.

No no no I think its obvious to what Bioware were building towards from the first one and second The Rachni, Geth, Krogan, Humans your going to be recruiting Planets in a war against the Reapers also Yeah those dudes seem pretty good if they came back maybe we'll see Ashley/Kaiden, hope  Thanes still in it he kicked ass.

I think your party (I assume that's what OP means when he says crew) will mostly consist of whoever survived Mass Effect 2. I'm sure they'll have a few more characters for you to recruit (they kind of have to since everybody can die in ME2), but I agree with Dylabaloo that ME3 will probably have more of a focus on recruiting entire armies Dragon Age style.

Conrad Verner obviously.

@Marz: Just go ahead and make Mass Effect 3 center around him.

Kaiden was unlikable and I only enjoyed him for having Carth's voice and Ashley is a racist.

I never even met this dude... What?

@Atlantus_Air: Didn't Ashley have a change of heart if you romanced her as a good guy?  I'm pretty sure I remember her speaking more carefully towards the end of that game if you kept her alive and romanced her.  Kaiden, similarly, could become a total asshole if you were a mean character and romanced him.

@LiquidPrince: He was some random guy in ME who wanted your autograph and wanted to be just like Sheperd. Depending on your actions, he appears in ME2. Paragon action, he doesn't appear, Renegade he does.

I was paragon, but I didn't even meet him so that's that.

I think they will go with mainly a new cast, it saves them on voice recording for people who lost crew members and need new characters to replace them. Instead of having dialog for two characters, they'll just have new ones, with cameos by old characters. Like ME2 did.

@LiquidPrince: He was in the citadel in the first game if you ever want to go back :)

@Marz: Is this going to be one of those stories where the lame guy (Conrad) does nothing but suck, but then at the end somehow saves the universe through a stroke of dumb luck? 
... 
That should be the ending if you beat Mass Effect 3 on Insanity. Just a huge F U to everyone after playing through on the highest difficulty.

Actually... I was paragon in ME 1 and he still showed up. I remember thinking that everything he was telling me in Mass Effect 2 made no sense at all in comparison to what I did in the first game.

No, what I meant was if you were like nice to him (Depending on your actions when talking to him) he'll appear in ME2. He only appears if you were mean to him.

Holy shit. That guy is in ME2?? I had no idea, I killed him off by being a total douche in my last playthrough of ME1.

Yeah. I know what you meant. I was nice to him. Told him to forget about it, or whatever the Paragon choice was. That's why I thought it was weird when he shows up, blaming me for his being there.

@FunExplosions: It's bugged.  They assume you put a gun in his face even if you didn't
#23 Posted by J_bomb3 (1 posts) -

I rhink your crew depends on your actions, paragon would probably mean more aliens, and renegade would probably more humans
