Wrex and Ashley. Wrex cause he's badass, and Ashley cause I want to bang her. Sent Kaiden to his death because of the latter reason. I love this game.
how did you choose your party?
Mass effect is one of my favorite games of all time, and a lot of it has to do with the great characters and dialogue.
so when i was choosing my party members i would usually choose based on who i would want to have when talking to an npc or who i liked the most as a character.
rather than choosing the character who would have complimented my character in combat. unless i knew that there was a really hard fight up ahead i would think of combat second. i still need to play through a second time, so maybe ill try it the other way around this time.
who else chose characters like this? or was it just about whose powers/skills you liked the most?
(i guess my internet is being really weird.)
It depends. Tali and Wrex for the most part, but I usually had Tali switching out with Garrus depending on who I wanted to come with me.
Used the others a small bit, but not as much. Tali + Wrex worked fine for me. Though Garrus was a beast with a super-powered sniper.
Wrex and Garrus. They initially have some beef with each other (with the Turians making the Krogan infertile), so I brought them along just to hear them banter at each other. Then I noticed that Garrus is a killer with the sniper and Wrex is a monster when you give him a shotgun and let him run around.
Totally fucked Ashley in my first playthrough. I'm on my third playthrough this time with Garrus and Wrex to clean up some achievements and to familiarize myself with the universe again before the sequel comes. Anyways, I chose them because I decided to be an Engineer this time around and shooting just isn't my game unlike my first character, where I played as a Soldier and easily trounced any opposition in the game with Ashley and Wrex backing me up. Not that it matters in this thread, playing any class other than the Soldier actually made the game challenging and more enjoyable.
Anyway, I liked my setup of Garrus and Wrex with tech and biotic skills while I'm wasting dudes as a Soldier.
They were also my favorite of the characters. Garrus died a lot and was crap with a sniper though.
