" @JJWeatherman: I'm about twelve hours in and still assembling the crew. I only have the Krogan left to recruit now. Don't worry about spoilers, I don't think I'm in a position to provide any - this is my first playthrough of the game. "
I'm 16 hours in and I still have to recruit probably two or three more crew members. I've been doing a bunch of side missions and loyalty missions, so it's taking me a while. I just completed the Krogan loyalty mission, which had some exciting points. I've been mining a ton of planets for materials to upgrade too. I don't know about you, but I can't pass an unexplored planet anymore without mining every last mineral from it. I guess that's just my OCD shining through a bit.
I'm gonna be sad when I beat the story, but I'll probably just start over and play through again.
