|Legion; Geth Infiltrator|
Right now based on what I’ve read online I’m concerned that my favorite characters aren’t going to be “permanent” squad members in ME3. I’m a bit upset/POed. I like the characters in ME2 much more than ME1 for a variety of reasons.
My favorite ME2 characters are Miranda, Grunt, Mordin, Kasumi and Legion.
EA/Bioware has said that the squad will be smaller in ME2 perhaps down to 6. They said publicly (http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Mass_Effect_3) that the following are on Shepard’s permanent squad:
- Kaidan Alenko
- Tali’Zorah vas Normandy
- Liara T’Soni
- Garrus Vakarian
- James Vega
- Ashley Williams
Why have I spent all this time with ME2 characters I like better than ME1 characters to not be able to take them on missions with me as permanent squad members in ME3? I thought that one of the premises of ME was to be involved with the story line and characters? Now the characters I like will only get some lame video scene like what they that did with Ashley Williams/Kaidan Alenko in ME2. That’s just wrong EW/Bioware!
Notice that EA/Bioware keeps playing secret squirrel games with their customers about the characters. It’s not about giving away the plot (that is already out, one of the worst kept secrets about ME3) its more likely that EA/Bioware is afraid we won’t buy the game when we find out we won’t have our favorite ME2 characters but are stuck with ME1 characters for missions.
Wondering why I shelled out $80 for the “Collectors Edition” at this point.
What are your thoughts?
