I wouldn't bother playing me1 because it is so clunky in comparison to me2. If you DL 'genesis' for me2 it runs through an animated comic Of me1 and let's you make the important decisions.
Edit: and me3 is awesome!!!
I just got my ship in me1. Liking the game so far
Maniacal Laugh, Maniacal Laugh, Maniacal Laugh
I'm either making the worst decisions ever, or the best. Doesn't seem like there is going be a happy ending regardless of the choices.
I beat it, so now I'm on my third play-through of the first. The ending was a little Battlestar Galatica-ish.
Just finished it. I rather liked. A little galacticaish, but a solid sci fi ending to me. Worked well with my character. Felt good. Sad that the story is over of course but I don't see the issue that people had with the ending.
There's actually 19 different things that can happen in the ending depending on decisions from me2 and me3, and your galactic readiness. You MUST play online to get your readiness up to 100% for the best endings.
That being said, I loved this game. Such a great break from modern warfare 3. Not quite as deep as skyrim but a story much more relatable.
There really isn't too much difference in the endings. They just change the music and the color a bit and a few cinematics.
Doesn't who lives and dies and how change?
