Slight cross post from Tumblr, but it's easier to chat over here so. Yeah. Potential spoilers for Mass Effect 2's ending and DLC.

Firs things first, I like my Shepard a lot, y'all.

Hailey Shepard )

Renegade scarring is amazing. HER EYES ARE GLOWING. It's been a great incentive for me to choose "mean" options and whatnot because it looks amazing and I am weak for cool ass scars. I do like, though, how the intimidate/renegade options aren't necessarily "bad." Using it to negotiate with Erinya was actually pretty sympathetic, but just in a no bullshit kind of way.

I am having so much fun with it--Waaaay more than when I first picked it up. ME2 was one of the first games I bought when BF and I were able to afford a PS3, and that had been one of the first games I had played in a while--I'm not a "good" gamer now, but after a dry spell (vidya games aren't exactly a priority when you can't even afford to keep electricity on), ME2 even on easy/casual was hard for me. I'm advancing pretty comfortably on the normal difficulty right now. I've only died a couple of times, and I haven't died in the same spot more than once.

I remember the fucking Harbinger destroying me the first time I played, but I got his creepy ass back this time.

Also, the sniper rifle is my jam. HEADSHOTS BABY.

I had some extra BioWare points from getting the Dragon Age II DLC, so I decided to load up on ME2 DLC as well. Of the DLC, I've only done Kasumi's mission so far, which I've played before, but I got a couple other story-based ones to check out. I also very much appreciate the options to put Miranda and Jack in more appropriate clothing. I think I might have had one for Samara, too, but I just started her recruitment mission.

I might be trading in Shenko for Shakarian. Garrus' "You don't make me uncomfortable. Nervous, maybe, but never uncomfortable" line kind of destroyed me last night (which reminds me that I have some gif'ing to do later this evening.) We'll see what happens in ME3, but I think they're a better match than her and Kaidan. I have heard that some of his writing is pretty atrocious in ME3, too--Apparently he'll forgive Shepard for "cheating" on him, but like. He made it pretty clear on Horizon that they were done so... We ain't playing that game, Alenko.

(I believe, too, that if it was a male Shepard with Ashley that he "forgives" her instead, regardless of what he does in ME2, which is a gigantic pile of bulllllllshit. I have a feeling I'm going to get angry again when I get to ME3.)

I could actually see myself playing a few more Shepards just starting with ME2--I've got that Genesis comic add-on so I can produce a ME1 worldstate without going through the tedium of playing it again.

Oh, and for anyone who wants to use a controller on the PC, I found that this mod worked the best. There's one on the Nexus too, but it doesn't properly replicate the combat wheels, which is frustrating.
