    Since I'm a renegade shepard what should I do for the endings?
        Should I do destroy but wipe out all of planet Earth or roleplay that I take control of all of the Reapers and destroy everything?

       Control is meant to be the Renegade option, whereas Paragon is /meant/ to be Destroy despite requiring you be in the mindset for genocide. There's also Synthesis but that's basically the biggest dick move ever.

    How is control the renegade option though.

    Also, I don't see how renegade Shepard has to be a mass murdering motherfucker. He's the Ends justify the Means dude.

    Because it's red. There's probably a lot more to it than that, but that's the basic gist.

    Plus the Illusive Man wanted to do the same and it actually kind of betrays everyone who wants the Reapers destroyed, and as you say Renegade is an ends justify the means guy, as well as risking the Reapers turning on you for power.

    Control is blue though.
    Destroy is red.

    I don't care what the Illusive man said, if the control end does what I think it does, then it's the Paragon choice.

    the difference between the illusive man and shepard is that one is a space gigolo who kills whoever he wants and holds humanity above everyone else and the other is martin sheen

    To be honest the gameplay in ME1 was pretty fun if you played as an adept. It was tough to start with, but ME1 followed the 'linear soldier, quadratic wizard' trope quite well, and by the end you were this maniacal, unstoppable, killing machine (which could be downright hilarious at times).

    What you talkin' 'bout?
    Mass effect 3 was absolutely fantastic both Story and Gameplay-wize. It only lost it at the very end, with the last 10 minutes of the game.

    And Mass Effect 2 was fantastic too, though a bit unrelated to the actual Reaper threat.

    ME3 was good, but even without the ending, in my opinion, the weakest story-wise.

    In cutscenes maybe, but on Insanity they hit you as soon as your pinkie leaves cover and their grenades bounce off the celing, a tree, a window, then land right under your feet.

    Speaking of Cerberus, as stupid as their ninja get go is with the phantoms and Kai Leng, the use of swords and melee weapons are quite novel, and a backwards way of countering shields used by soldiers throughout the galaxy, as the shields only block bullets and shrapnel (Lorewise anyway). Same goes to Geth pyros.
    It's kind of like the arms race going on in Afghanistan with IEDS:
    1/ Jammer-proof bombs
    Summer 2004

    Insurgents start using EFPs — lengths of pipe packed with explosives that launch a molten slug of copper. Because they’re tripped by the engine heat of passing vehicles, coalition electronic jammers prove useless.

    2/ Bomb-proof decoys
    May 2006

    Individual soldiers improvise heat decoys, like a toaster hung on a pole in front of a truck, which inspires a countermeasure: the Rhino. It consists of a heating element housed in a steel box and extended on a 10-foot boom.

    3/ Decoy-proof targeting
    Summer 2006

    Insurgents recalibrate the aim of the EFPs, angling them backward to account for the decoy. EFPs comprise just a small percentage of roadside bombs, but they soon account for hundreds of fatalities.

    4/ Bomb-proof adjustments
    Fall 2006

    The Rhino II, which costs less than $2,000 and has an adjustable-length boom, changes the position of the decoy. More than 16,000 Rhino IIs are deployed overseas in just 30 months.

    5/ Jammer-triggered bombs
    Early 2010

    New EFPs ignore heat signatures and are triggered by the high-power radio waves emitted by coalition jammers. In other words, the latest bomb is set off by the countermeasure that defeated its predecessors.

    I thought at first it was a buttfuck for snipers only as you couldn't take time to aim

    I started playing a turian soldier with an assault rifle, and it was worse

    Aren't big enemies like Primes resistant to hacks? Most of the time i try to hack them the hack just wears off faster and then they ignore it.

    Hmm, lets see.

    Rocket troopers can do enough damage to take out your shields in one hit.

    Can fire accurately and constantly.

    Are everywhere because they are generic troopers as opposed to rare.

    Have decently strong shields and health about that of a normal geth trooper.

    Yup, sounds balanced guys!

    I always imagined that constantly hearing alien languages superimposed of their translation over several years would be a great way to passively learn them.
