Wrong Game. It's called Lemmings.
To Topic: As long as you do not feel the need to throw your boss (or wife) out of the nearest airlock, cause a discussion did not go along as planned, you'll be fine, don't worry.
Oh.... James is Drax then.
Samara = Scarlett Witch
Jack = Rocket Raccoon
And the Ironman goes to....Garrus
Grunt would be Hulk then
Miranda is Black Widow
Kasumi = Spiderman or Ant-Man
Zaeed = War Machine
Wrex = Thor
Jacob will not be Black Panther.... never, that's Steve
Javik = Captain Marvel
Mordin = Dr. Strange, although he is more the combined genius of Stark and Banner
Well you can be renegade and have almost all character's surviving the playthrough.
Except the Renegade interrupts, playing renegade is not automatically being bad.
The lower right option on the dialog wheel is the psychotic on.
My worst deed, was a whole playthrough foccussing on maximizing everyone's suffer and killing, or at least being directly responsible for the deaths playthrough. Whoever I romanced did not survive long enough. Example: Tali..... as one of the view SM survivors she committed suicide on Rannoch as I sided with the Geth, who in turn die because I choose Destroy, after Harbinger vaporized my 2nd main romance Liara before my eyes.
It was a really sick playthrough, but it shows the variability and diversity of the games. Too bad you can't court Miranda and have her killed on the SM though.
As for the excourse above, it is the same with all ammo mods from ME1 being turned into powers out of the necessity due to the change in combat mechanics in ME2. Without this, the Soldier and Infiltrator Class would be stuck with 3 abilities, AR, Tactical Cloak, Class Passive. You could add grenades or hack, but this would eliminate them as Bonus Powers or reduce the standing of the Engineer Class. Them being consumables like in MEA was simple decided to put single player combat on par with multiplayer for smoother transitions. ME3MP has these purchaseable ammo consumable restrictions, so that's were it comes from. But even there it lasts the whole battle, not just 3 clips like in MEA, as to why they are utterly useless on most of the arsenal in Andromeda. Quite sad. Don't get me wrong, but changing from heat sink based weapons to thermal clip ammo crap was one of the stupidest dev decissions ever made and their justification for it is pretty lame. Those heat sink mechanics were one of the reasons ME is special in the first place. Funny thing is, adress this community controversity quite humorously by chatting wirh Conrad Verner in ME3, as a form of apologize ( next to the PPR and M-7).
There are some nice fanmade illustrations of the various cycle races in reaperfied form on the web.
Another good explanation as to why more if this then of that reaperfied unit is the galaxy entry point and the flightpath of the reapers:
Batarian - Human - Turian -then spreading out to Krogan and Asari
Salarian main space is off that route, and to be fair, there is no need for a smartass hyperactive husk, as this is what the Salarian's abilities are about.
Now the Asari fought back on Illium, thx to their biotic abilities, so the reaper forces tried a more subtle approach with the Kalini Monastery.
As you can see in the Dragon's Teeth, the nano tech that transforms the subject does need much time to align to the lifeform it is converting.
Oh, and on Virmire.... there are a bunch of indoctrinated Salarians.
Care to elaborate your source?
From my experience and of others, ME3 has the greatest variety of combat efficient setups and tactics in the franchise (squad members included, as otherwise this crown would go over to Andromeda).
The Adept was and is not an easy Class to master and does lack the variety of abilities beyond biotic powers. Plus the absence of Stasis as a base power is not helpful either.
However, as the majority of enemy troops in ME3 is without defence layers, the Adept can shine with it's crowd control and ranged peime and detonation powers.
So the question is: do you struggle with your playthroughs. If so, rhen adjustments might be necessary. If not, why chance a winning team.
If you are bored by the same tactics, well be creative, try new things as ME3 is a very good playground to do so. But most importantly, have fun whilst playing the game. If playing a game becomes more of calculating the gravimetrical current of a black whole to boost your dps by 0.5 percent, it might not be worth it, unless this your preferred playstyle.
Unlike your other squadmates, Liara is unique as she can spam her singularity almost as often as your adept with around 2 seconds cd.
With her in the squad I ended up never using singularity myself, most of the time.
My preferences do not have to be yours. That's the sweetness of taste.
I cannot handle grenades, so that is the power I skip/do not max out.
Go for DMG in your skill tree. Pull is fun, especially the double pull evo. Plus this power has a cd of 1 sec, so almost instantly ready. It even staggers shielded /armored units and removes Guardian shields, so quite helpful early on.
Be the detonator. Your squadmates can prime almost everything.
From pure maths the full serrice armor plus the umbra visor provide +50% power dmg. The Cerberus Spirit armor does provide 80% boost in total, but only 30% power dmg and 50% in stats you actually do not need.
Again, when playing, preference is what matters. My adept used a pull/warp combo with energy drain for those nasty shield bearers, as it boost/refills my shield too. This is what makes it the best BP in ME2 prior to the suicude mission (no use there thx to barriers and armor, so switching is a good idea). And the squad primed too.
Almost all classes can be specced and played in various ways.
Infiltrators can be the best melee warriors, sentinels can become literally invulnerable, except for sync kills.
You can build a full specced power focussed Vanguard, that charges in and uses Nova, Charge, Nova, rinse and repeat. Due to this mechanics you are surrounded by biotic explosions all the time so shield your eyes.
With a bit of training you can dance around banshees and nova them to pieces. Grab Full Serrice or Blood Dragon/Inferno/Arena Armor and equip a pistol with power amplifier. Packs a hell of a punch.
Downside is, it gets boring as you press 1 and 2 all the time and nothing more.
My BP always depends on the class/subclass (Novaguard is quite effective too) and how I wanna play it.
As you are refering to ME3 most of the time, my favourite BP are Marksman and Stasis with the Bubble evolution.
Just Charge in and reshape the face. The beauty of invincible insanity on tour = Vanguard.
Hm... they are around 20 years old and the titles that made BW famous in RPG games in the first place. They were groundbreaking at their time.
The problem with Javik as a DLC character is, that once you have him, it more or less creates a completely new game experience.
As Liara is quite capable to support you with all sorts of enemies you'll encounter the other member is a free pick, as all share the same dialog pool, except for Javik.
Never played DA, but is seem kinda more in line to classic action RPG like Baldurs Gate or Dungeon Siege, where you needed a tank, healer and 2 DD's to come along. ME is more in line with the KotOR type games, overpower through OVERPOWER, so the MC + 2 sidekicks is deemed sufficient.
Think how easy the Arrival DLC would be with a full crew.
It is meant to get to know your team.... in the field, not just the kitchen.
To be fair you can skip most of this content.
IIRC you only need 7-8 loyal members to leave no one behind on the SM.
You don't need LM's in MEA either, except for romance.
I think you need a different perspective on it:
Stand in the tears of a dozen rejected crewmembers and ask them, if squad selection matters. Their wheeping is your answer.
You don't like forced squadmembers, like EDI in Cerberus HQ, or Tali on Rannoch and the Geth Dreadnaught, Liara on Thessia... oh wait wait.... every squadmates Loyalty Mission throughout the franchise?
Hm you really must have a hard time enjoying your playthroughs.
'He knows too much'
Sometimes, just sometimes, I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.^^
