This game feels so gooood!
I just beat it. I think it was something like 36 hours for me. Doing everything I could. With the ending I'm sticking with, I can't wait for the sequel(s). I do plan to load a previous save to see what different endings I can get.
If anyone is interested, the ending I'm going with is:
NOTE: DO NOT FREAKING READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T BEAT THE GAME, PLAN TO PLAY THE GAME, OR DON'T WANT TO KNOW OTHER POSSIBLE ENDINGS THAN WHAT YOU MAY HAVE PICKED.
I told the fleet to hold position and concentrate on Sovereign, and the Council's ship was destroyed. In a sneaky move I didn't see coming, humans are taking over the council and I picked Anderson to be in charge. My Sheppard was pretty much a ruthless Renegade.
You save the Council and they allow a human on the Council. I picked Anderson.
I'll see if the other choices I make at the end make any difference.
Hmm... how do they plan to let you play as your Sheppard from ME1? I don't see anything special, and you can't keep playing after the credits.
