    Permanent squad members? Around 6-8 I think?

    -Garrus
    -Liara
    -VS
    -Vega
    -Tali
     Prothean   
     EDI(?)   
    I'm willing to bet the protagonist from Mass Effect: Infiltrator, Randall Ezno, will become the second DLC squad mate. That, or hopefully a batarian. But that's just me.

    I really want Miranda to be a squadmate again. Not only is she voiced/faced by my favorite actress, she was really in depth and my personal favorite character in Mass Effect 2.

    It has two grips each one with a trigger, I suppose you hold that one whichever firemode you want to use.

    Yes, all of them. Chobot is bs though, she stays only on the ship if you let her.

    Just finished Mass Effect 2 for the first time.    Only me, Miranda, Jacob, and Tali survived. The only loss I really care about is Garrus. I'm going to redo the mission soon and try to keep the results the same besides Garrus.

    My biggest hope is that Miranda will play a big role in ME3, unlike Wrex or Kaiden/Ashley in ME2.

        I'm convinced he isn't because I was talking to my brother about it and he brought up that he read somewhere that Shepard is going to have nightmares about everything that's happened to him, so maybe the emotional shock of everything he/she's gone though is going to catch up   
       I would say the kid was real just to play those emotional strings and to set in motion those nightmares in the future. I think people are looking too much into it and his 'survival of the laser in the vent' can be attributed to either designer oversight or he was in the vent prior to the explosion (coming out when Shepard saw him but backed away in fear). I doubt he would play any larger a role than a remind of what is at stake.

    There is no way he removed the vent cover and got into the vent in time. He's just going into the room when those Husks climb up the wall. And the explosion would have went into the vent.

       I meant that he was in the vent coming out of it when Shepard approached. As in, he was never in the room when the blast occurred.

    Why is the kid always a boy? Implying there is symbolism. Femshep still sees a boy or they didn't want to make it obvious that it's a hallucination.

    But you can see him enter the room. Which is why the husks are banging on the windows trying to get in, they were chasing him.

    I think it's the fact that they're standing about a foot and a half in front of the wall, rather than actually leaning against it for support.
    Their armor is too shiny, it looks like plastic instead of battle-hardened war gear.

    Really? I have never noticed. If that's the case, then I say it's designer oversight. But who knows for sure.

    Yeah, when Anderson says to shoot the husks crawling up the wall, look to the right. You can see him run in. And then the husks come up following him.

    Finally got around to pre-ordering the Collectors Edition

    Sad that I sold my 360 through, I wanted my original save files;
    - 360; 100% on ME:1 & ME:2 with paragon, renegade and paragon with ending choice supporting TIM, all achievements, romance

    Sold my Xbox :(

    Just finally finished ME:2 this time for the PS3, not enough time to go through fully, just paragon with the choices that I made in the first game and the way I wanted to play for the 3rd, quite stoked, never been this excited for a game for years.

    I feel for you, my first Xbox with my main saves are with my family... about 600km away.

    I've got one of the newer 360's with me but since I won't have the opportunity to transfer the saves over for another couple of months I'll have to start again.

    Your hand goes into the slot between the two grips, the other hand goes on the front grip. No idea how you hit the second trigger though.

    It's just like driving a European car, you use your dick to hit the third pedal / trigger.

    I think I addressed that fairly well. Also, I checked out the planet itself; .85 ATM for atmospheric pressure, and .85 earth's gravity - meaning less re-entry heat, but otherwise similar terminal velocity to Earth.
    This already been gone over with a fine tooth comb at BSN, he/she would have decompressed, "frozen", burnt and splattered, and none of that actually accounts for the fact he/she left the Normandy going ridiculous miles an hour. They'd be lucky to find enough to identify, much less reconstruct.

    Edited:

    No, not really. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xE71aKXjss0]Remember the dude that parachuted down from the edge of Earth's atmosphere?[/url] Dude fell down, reaching almost the speed of sound, and yet somehow he was not burnt up and smashed flat. Saying he had no parachute is moot because lots of people have survived terminal velocity falls before. " reaching a maximum speed of 614 miles per hour (988 km/h)"

    Also Atmospheric pressure for Alchera is 0.82 times that of earth, and Gravity is 0.85 times that of earth, so slower fall speed but less wind resistance ultimately balances itself out.
    He/She was moving at whatever speed the Normandy was, which is slightly faster then parachuting. Shepard had no ascent and then redirection. Shepard had massive velocity that went one direction, and was way faster than freefall terminal velocity. Down. In full armor, which likely would not have helped the situation. Lots of people have survived tv falls from say 4 miles up, not entering the atmosphere at the cruising speed of a spaceship. Shepard would have left a crater.

    Can kinetic barriers even protect areas from vacuums, like in the cockpit at the beginning? And the holes in the Normandy at the end?

    Yeah, considering that the Normandy could easily have been doing Mach 20 in space since it was casually cruising past a planet, we're talking re-entry speeds of over 10,000mph.

    I mean consider that the Normandy can do FTL travel, the speed of light in a vacuum being Mach 908,462, and we could even be talking about the Normandy doing like Mach 500 or Mach 1000 very easily, which is 660,051mph.

    I mean He/she would have slown down to terminal velocity, sure, and the kinetic barriers or suit would maybe absorb a lot of the impact, but the sheer friction from the atmosphere if Shep hit it at 660,051mph would surely destroy any suit.

    Really the plausibility of Shepard's survival depends almost entirely on how fast the Normandy was going.
