Likes:

- everything but Aria

Dislikes:
- Aria
- Aria's line "Don't f@*& with Aria." I think that wins the award for most awkwardly placed line in a game with a swear word in it just for the purpose of trying to act cool. :P

You should try them with "Insanity" difficulty, it's an absolute nightmare! ;)



Heehee...
Someday, with some character I will. xD

Probably not a vanguard though...
I'll definitely want something better than a shotgun to take against insane YMIRs. xD

+Beating up armored husks with melee.
-Hardcore difficulty. OMG! Armored husks! OMFG! Near-instant deaths! XD

Just did Horizon on Hardcore for the first time. Damn, those husks were annoying!

Strangely enough, I didn't find the praetorian to be any harder than on the other difficulties though.

The derelict reaper could be a "fun" mission on Hardcore and Insanity...

Why do people hate Aria so much? I thought she was a well-voiced example of what a mafia boss should be like in the ME galaxy, namely a ruthless member of one of the long-lived races, complete with former rivalry with one of the other long-lived races. Adding to that that she came across as an intelligent, if somewhat overly dramatic character; plus, she's helpful to Shepard, basically giving you everything you need every time you go ask for her help.

As to her lines: I personally found the "Boss, CEO, Queen..." line the worst, and the "Don't fuck with Aria" line perfectly positioned (and voiced in a way that reminded me of Spartans), and it's not like the game is without swearing otherwise (Jack, Joker, and Renegade Shepard come to mind).

Oh it's not the swearing that cracked me up, Lord Ernie. I think what it was with that line was that I totally didn't expect it and so it seemed awkwardly placed for me that it came off as cheesy.

I wished that we could have seen Aria exercise her power and influence a little bit more. The quality of her voicing was fine - as it was with all the characters. Bioware seriously rocks on voicing. :)

I don't really *hate* Aria, myself, it's just that she was awfully, well... *tame* for someone who's supposed to be the queen of all that's unlawful on Omega.

I've found a few more:

Loves:
* Joker: Seth Green's voice acting is spot on, and he's funny. Plus, (spoilers ahead)
Spoiler

* Grunt: A solid side-kick, a character more complex than he first appears (although I was a bit put out at first, he put a dent on *my* ship ;) ), and a good old fashioned gun crazy, fight lovin' krogan.
* Insanity difficulty: I know I've spoken of it before, but I'm getting a lot of fun out of the "insanity" setting. Granted, some of it is tear-my-hair-out-out-of-frustration fun, but still fun. ^_^


Hates:
* Lines from the Miranda romance (minor spoilers ahead):
Spoiler

* Not being able to blackmail/threaten people for more money (ie, I'll return your precious family heirloom, but cough up the credits first!)
* The Citadel's size: in the first opus, we got a glimpse of the sprawling vastness of the Citadel. Now, however, it seems to have shrunk, and we barely get to run around in a fraction of a ward. Slightly disappointing, as I would've liked to walk along the Presidium's lake, drop in at Barla Von's office or Sha'ira's, or say hello to Dr. Michaels in her clinic ni the Wards. Or take another spin on the dance floor at Flux. ^_^ I know all that is silly, but it still illustrates my point, that the Citadel in ME2 is too tiny.

If both Shepards were straight, it would be one thing, but that "it's icky when boys kiss, but lesbians are totally hot!" attitude is getting really old. Trying to hide it behind excuses like "Liara is not actually female so it doesn't count" only makes it worse. (And now I guess they'll tell us Kelly doesn't count either because apparently you don't get an achievement for boning her. ARGH. Or maybe she's a robot or something. Or OH WAIT I KNOW she's actually a Reaper in human form come to spy on you! Bam, plot of ME3 right there!)



I think of Asari having their own separate third gender. Since we don't have a third gender to define it apart from the linguistic "it", you might as well try and have a one-night stand with a log of wood. :doh:

I fully agree. At least Illium had a bit of the atmosphere of the Presidium, as a tiny bit of the "Um, where did I end up now?" moments you got at the beginning when you ran around the place. But it's still not the same.
