They both look amazing, and it's great to see them, as well! :love:  Sha'ira was such an interesting part of the first game, and it felt a little cheap just to get a note from her in the second! :/

By the way, I saw in comments below about Nelyna...I remember that from ME2, hearing the Asari on Illium talk about her late daughter who worked for Sha'ira, and I also feared the worst.  But checking into the Mass Effect Wiki, I saw she wasn't described as dead.  We need to remember a lot of acolytes worked for Sha'ira on the Citadel...so add that to the fact no name was mentioned, and I prefer to believe Nelyna is well and still serving the Consort! :)

You're very good at getting asari to look different, considering we're just working with one face mesh without being able to morph. Thanks for the work!

Thank you! I am trying my best there. But I wonder how that works in game. You can notice that there are much more different head types, especially nose types. Or the width across the outer tendrils. I wonder if there really is no was to access that information somehow.

The asari definitely have morphing parametres, but doing it in the same way you put together a custom Shep model doesn't work. It must be deep in the game files, because I've searched all over the place. I figured there would be some way to find out the human face codes since they're made with the same engine as a custom Shep, I assumed (e.g Traynor and Cortez). But nothing so far. I figure someone would have worked it out by now if it were possible.

~(spoilers)~    If I remember correctly, Nelyna turned out to be the daughter of the pure-blood asari you talk to in ME2 that had a contract with Zhu's Hope.  She had died during the attack on the citadel. =(

Wow, I managed to completely forget about these characters again. It's been so long since I played the original ME game... 
I have 2 and 3 on the PS3, with the digital comic for the first one - ME1 wasn't available on the system until the trilogy came out.


I actually ran into Sha'ira on the citadel DLC after I got it a while back, and had this exact same "Oh yeah, you were a character!" moment. Hahaha

oh yes, she was! I liked that they integrated her in Citadel.
I just started another playthorough in ME1, meeting everyone again!

I really liked a lot about ME1. Someday I'll find the trilogy at a cheaper price and be stoked to play it again.

I like the gunfighting and the class rebalancing they did in the later games, but ME1 had all the culture background, more citadel stuff, all the Sovereign plot of awesomeness, and (even though I did NOT like 99% of the exploring w/Mako) tons of awesome views.


...yeah, there are things that the comic doesn't cover at all, too. Stuff that I'll never see in ME2 and 3 no matter what decisions I make in the backstory decisions without a Mass Effect 1 import. Nothing HUGE, but I like all the small stuff. It ties it together.

Yes, The Citadel in ME1, so different and still so awesome.
I actually loved the Mako and all the exploring. The planets were beautifully desgned on the surface. I hope this comes back in a way with ME4. Open worlds would be amazing

I just didn't like how vertical everything was with the Mako exploration. I LOVED how all the worlds were more unique when you could land on them and check em out that way though.

So what do you like playing in the games?
Male/Female? Paragon/Renegade? Favorite classes? Romance choices?

:icontaleeze:
Taleeze Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
mostly female paragon. i sort of have a "head canon" shep, she's the first I made. I like Sentinel class and mostly end up with Liara:) I also did one game with Tali.
This time it's a male soldier for starters, will change the class in 2. But Liara will also be LI.

what about you?

To do everyone a favor, I'll summarize that wall of text:

My favorite ME character would be a Female Paragon Infiltrator, and would usually romance nobody/Garrus/Garrus in 1/2/3.

I almost always tend to go Paragon. Went Renegade once, but I usually block myself a bit with it morally. I've seen a few friends and family members play them all as renegades though, so I know what I've missed.

-

I prefer the female Shepard in the game for Paragon players overall, so I've actually ended up playing more female charas than males. I feel like Jennifer Hale's voice work adds more emotion to the game, which I like.

-

The classes I use can vary by the game. I remember going through ME1 as a soldier twice, but I never owned the game myself, so I didn't finish a play with most of the classes.

In 2, I go Soldier, or Infiltrator usually. I prefer the latter. Something that's awesome with a weapon. 

ME3 is so balanced. I love that I can use any class on it. The straight-up powers classes are way fun in 3, too. Adepts and Sentinels and Engineers can dominate with very little weapon use, so that's fun...
But I still prefer the Infiltrator in ME2 and 3. I play much better with them than I do with any other class, and can make Insanity feel easy. 

-

For romances, I've yet to ever carry a Liara romance through the three games. I don't know what it is about her, but her character never really drew me in. I know I didn't romance anyone when I played ME1 (where I was a male), because I NEVER consider Ashley. Lonely Shepard. Hahaha
The one thing I always do note about Liara, though, is that she's DEFINITELY a Shepard fan. She wants to be there, and is on Shepard's side 110% of the time, no matter what you do. I think my next save will pick Liara through all three.

As a male in ME2 and 3, I like Tali's personality, and go with her most of the time, but at the same time, part of me likes Jack.
At first, Jack was just a fascinating character that looked really wierd. But if you do the full romance thing for her in ME2, she tends to win me over. Seeing the foul-mouthed hardass break down and be human helped her likeability.

As a female in ME2 and 3, it's been Garrus most times so far. I also think Thane is a mega-badass character, but Garrus is always out on missions with me, so I always fall towards giving him the unique dialogue. Plus, Turians are pretty badass. Hahaha

-

...though there was the first time I played through ME3 with a female Shepard, and ended up calling it my "Accidental Lesbian" save. Traynor was taking the shower, and I was trying to ignore her advances when the joystick slipped up and I accidently went into the shower. I rolled with it a while to see if I could cancel the romance for someone else instead later, but learned I couldn't. 
My friends and I refer to this save as "The time where Shepard was accidentally a lesbian." 
Hahaha





...Sorry for the giant wall of text. I ramble.
