    The Council to everyone but Humanity is their SINGLE form of Government, that is what is heavily implied based on its usage and importance. Us controlling it means we control every other race.
    Not really a good thing.

    Humans are far from benevolent. Just like them, we would treat races that aren't our own with contempt. The council needs to be multiracial so each species doesn't feel like they are being misrepresented and cause trouble.

    Even if we made everything good and made everyone happy including other races there would still be complaints that other races couldn't join the council. No matter how well humans rule, we would need some representation from other races. The Salarians barely did anything in the old council but still had a say.

    Interspecies politics is fucking complicated.

    If you have ME1 on PC you'll be able to use those for 2, right?

    This seems like a dumb question but I'm not willing to rule out that being an Xbox only feature, especially since a secondary company did the PC version of ME1.

    Yeah, you're fine. Just leave them in the default save directory, and you're good.

    Also, Subject Zero's "Fight for the Lost" was shown abridged on TV. Personally, I want that biotic-charged punch as an ability for my Shepard. That'd be amazing.

    Yeah, no problem. For more specifics concerning save importing: http://meforums.bioware.com/viewtopi...4907&forum=144

    How does the Mass Effect 1 Import System work?

    On PC – First you will use the Mass Effect Configuration Tool to locate your save games, from there it works much like the standard Load menus from within the game, choose your career and import your game. We will have a much more in depth guide relating to setting up the ME1 import feature on PC created closer to the launch of Mass Effect 2.

    On Xbox 360 – When you use the Mass Effect 1 Import Utility on Xbox 360, you are prompted with a list of Careers and their accompanying saves attached to your Xbox Profile. You then will select which Save game to use and be brought directly into the start of your Mass Effect 2 experience. This can be repeated a many times as you wish on as many saves as you wish.
    So I was partially wrong about location. But I'd still assume, for ease of application, leave them when they go.

    Yeah, ship your Xbox to me. I'll extract your save and import it onto the computer.

    Oh and Wiggles, post a link or two to the previous Mass Effect Megathreads somewhere in the op.
    Good idea, I'll do that when I get home tonight.

    Thought you were going to have a collage of all our Shepards, Wiggles.
    I'll do it when ME2 rolls around so I can make my Shepard look the way I wanted him to be.

    Also, I hit a bit of a conundrum last night while reading through ME: Revelation. I won't spoil anything major, but Ambassador Goyle gives one hell of a speech on humanity and it's relationship with the council, which made me change my whole perception on how humans have been treated since they were first accepted into the Citadel. Now I'm stuck in a rut about my ME2 character playthrough, and time is desperately running out for me to finish. Should I go with a pure paragon playthrough like I was planning, or should I make the decisions I truly believe in?

    Is anyone else replaying Mass Effect again to make sure they did everything right? Because that's what I'm doing now. I also tried to make Shepard look like a drug addled hobo to fit with the sole survivor backstory.

    Well. I wake up today and find that my brother ran off to college with my Modern Warfare 2. And my Mass Effect book.

    Fuck.

    So, what exactly did Goyle say? I'm curious as to how mind-shattering it is.

    While we're on the topic of how our Shepards acted, my Shepard was a nice guy, who acted like an asshole to assholes, and whatnot. Smooth-talker.

    Does anyone have a spare save for Mass Effect so I can import it to Mass Effect 2 to get the bonuses and stuff? My saves are on my 360 but I'm getting it on PC this time.

    I'd prefer a paragon.

    My Shepard is a generally nice guy, who gets extremely touchy when someone talks about Akuze (Sole Survivor origin) with an strong morale compass that sometimes leads to him being manipulated by others.

    And hates big stupid jellyfishes.

    Also, goddamn, a thread where half of it is spent theorising over Inter-galactic Human politics and doctrines, and the effect caused by Humans being in a leading role in the galaxy. This is awesome.

    The main thing I'd worry about if I were to have Udina elected would be that he's, you know, fucking psychotic. I wouldn't be surprised if at the first minor conflict he managed to start a major war (assuming that the council were not saved).

    Do you mind uploading your save (assuming you're on PC and have completed it)? He sounds the same as my 360 guy.

    You'll find out with me, since I both had the council die, made a Human Empire, AND elected Udina as Chairman.

    Just beat ME, again, before I was that engineering thing with a sniper, pretty meh, Vanguard this time. Beat both downloadables, did everything but one or two collectathons, concentrated on Sovereign    Blew the Council to smitheroons.   , gave the info to the Shadow broker, Rachni Queen lives, Ash lived, Wrex lived, Anderson is the new king, did all ally quests, sole survivor colonist, and did everything how I would do it, i.e, 80% paragon and 20% renegade, apparently.

    When you blew the Council to Smitheroons, did you ask to have them reform the Council, or make a Human Empire?

    Me, for Paragon playthrough:
    Saved Ranchi Queen
    Wrex lived
    Ashley is KIA(3rd playthrough, on Hardcore)
    Liara is love interest
    Gave geth shit to Tali
    Saved Council
    Said fuck you to Terra Firma
    Scared the shit out of the fan(3rd playthrough)
    Did Diplomacy(the whole sister of that Asari diplomat is a slaver)
    Did the Colonist sidequest(peacefully)
    War Hero.
    Ambassador gets punched in the face, and is not part of the council.

    Renegade(tech) playthrough right now:
    Ashley is going to maybe live(and more)
    Scaring the living shit out of the fan again.
    Allow the 2 aliens that can die, live.
    Save the Council(need powerful allies)
    Don't be an ass to squadmates.

    Renegade(biotics) plan:
    Scare the shit out of everyone.
    Punch everyone.
    Let the Council fuckers die and the Ranchi.
    Ruthless or Sole Survivor Earthborn or Colonist.
    Basically, try to do all quests like a Renegade.
    Maybe act like an asshole to squadmates(kinda hard).
