At any rate, about the last mission on ME2.
Because Miranda wasn't loyal, I didn't choose her for my Fire team leader either time. I also separated her and Jack during the mission. I thought that in real life, their mutual antipathy would compromise the mission on the field. I knew that it was a bad idea as soon a Jack bitched over Miranda being a group leader.
As for the hacker, I chose Tali. I know most people chose Legion, because he seems like the logical choice. But really, he wasn't loyal so I knew that would kill him. I chose Tali over Legion in their little argument because, well, Tali was my girlfriend. I wasn't about to lose her loyalty. I also figured that being my girlfriend, the game wouldn't let her die. I was right. She was a great hacker btw. Other than winning about the vents getting hot, which I can understand, choosing her was good decision. From what I've read, Legion ends up with a blown up circuit.
As for the bionic who protected me through the corridor full of nasty bugs, I chose the Justicar. I know a lot of people chose Jack, which I found strange. The Justicar is 100s of years old, is probably the most powerful bionic of the group and she volunteered for the job. I don't know if this has anything to do with loyalty points or not, but from what I've read, Jack buckles and falls at the end of the corridor, causing one of the guys to die (usually Garrus, who should be leading the other team). The Justicar did fine and managed to pull off a wave of bionic energy at the very last second which saves everyone in my group.
For my last team, the ones who actually take down the Reaper, I chose Miranda (because I worked well with her) and Mordin, the Salarian Scientist. I know! Who else chose him? I can't think of a single person I've read who chose him a part of the team to take down that thing. And at first glance, it would seem like a silly decision. After all, Mordin's attack don't pack a lot of punch, but he's a smart fighter. I've noticed that some of my team-members need more babysitting while on missions than others. A few, like Jack, seem to like running off to the front of the pack in the middle of a fire-fight and get themselves killed. Not so with Mordin. He's a methodical mid-range guy who has been programed not to run out and get shot at first opportunity. Although Miranda seems to die too much for my personal satisfaction, so my female Shepard doesn't pick her as much as as John.
Overall, the end was fairly easy and the whole thing a success. I got rid off two team-members I didn't quite like too much, although I did feel a twinge of sadness when Miranda died. It was to be expected. Maybe if I had picked someone else to join me, like say, Jacob, she would have survived under Garrus' expert leadership.
As for the Reaper technology, my John Shepard was too much of a good guy to save it. He told the Illusive man to shove it and blew up the thing.
Granted, when I do this again, it's going to be different. Maybe I'll pick an off-the-wall member to be my hacker, like say, Katsumi or Mordin. Who knows.
I do know that my Jane Shepard is nasty, so she'll keep the Reaper tech.
Anyway, the game was fun.
Is old, I know. But I just finished it. That's what I get for doing things the legal way instead of watching fan-subs on the internet. Truth be told, the older I get, the less I like ripping off people like that. The thing is, these people work like dogs to produce a product. They should be compensated. I don't have the money to pay $50 a series, so I just watch them on Netflix. Problem solved.
Of course, this means that everything everyone's watched, I have just now started watching. And everything that everyone's going to watch, is not going to be on my list for a couple of years. But, I can live with that. It's not like I know many Otaku around here anyway. The fact is that I'm rather lonely in this area.
At any rate, Mushi-shi is one of the best series I've seen in a long time. I'm not going to call this "mature" or "adult," because whenever someone throws that word around, it usually involves gore, nudity, and pr0n. This has none of that, but this series is definitely for grown ups. I can't think of very many children or teenagers who would be too involved in this series without going to sleep. Most of the episodes don't have any real action to speak of, and are filled with all sorts of symbolism that would be lost to most empty-vessels that pass as humans these days.
It's a goo series. I'm go bored to continue.
Besides, I'm watching Black Jack.
