I went straight-up soldier but I'll probably play it again to do the douchebag Renegade route.  Thinking I'll do the biotic path next time.

I'm doing the ruthless bitch route myself, but so far there hasn't been alot of 'ruthless' choices.

I miss the KotOR method of switching between characters and using their skills instead of being stuck having to balance out everything on one character- it made me feel a greater attachment to my party members.  Do other characters non-combat skills automatically roll over to everyone in the party?  I'm guessing they do, otherwise some of the skills would be useless for your NPC's to have.


Yes, passive abilities like first aid and decrypting are based on your total party level in that skill.  So to decrypt a "hard" lock you either have to have one person with a high enough decrypt skill for hard locks or enough total skill across all three characters to decode hard locks.  So if you don't want to personally gain those skills then just make sure you have a strong tech person in your party anyway (which you should for good party balance anyway since the combat aspect of those skills are extremely powerful). 

there must be some conversion when adding everything to the pull because between my PC and Tali I should have had enough to do hard decryptions but it wouldn't let me.  If I remember correctly both of them have it up to at least 'average' and 'hard' is only 3 or 4 blocks away from that.  maybe it was just a hiccup in the game.

am I missing it, or does the galaxy map let you know what planets you've visited (whether to land or survey) in a system without having to go back to them and finding nothing to do?

I got into an extended firefight with some pirates last night.  both sides had pretty good cover and armament and it finally boiled down to me making a suicidal pistol charge into the main room and taking out a bunch of them Jack Bauer style., only to find out that the treasure they were guarding was in 'Hard Encryption' lockers which I couldn't open (yet)  mad  I miss the KotOR method of switching between characters and using their skills instead of being stuck having to balance out everything on one character- it made me feel a greater attachment to my party members.  Do other characters non-combat skills automatically roll over to everyone in the party?  I'm guessing they do, otherwise some of the skills would be useless for your NPC's to have.

I had a better time with the Mako too, but it still feels like they should have made it handle heavier, and made the controls so that whenever you press forward it would move the Mako in whatver ever direction it's forward bow was pointing instead of it moving it forward depending on what direction the camera was facing.  a couple of times I ended up moving in the wrong direction becaue I'd swing the camera around to see what was going on behind me while holding down the thumbstick to go forward, and I'd end up going in reverse back the way I came.

I'm not sure that's true but IANAL, just descended from them.  It sounds like it can a cause for disbarment, like in this apparently notorious case.

that's the situation where I encountered the worm.  there were a bunch of dead marines lying around and I got a quest to inform the Rear Admiral about finding them.
