Civ IV is leaps and bounds better then V. And G&K, even though I havent put in that many hours playing it yet, was a HUGE improvement in gameplay and replayvalue. I played tons of Civ V while I was in the navy last year, and it doesn't leave you craving for more the way IV did. The games play out rather similar after a while and if there are two capable players playing against eachother, more often then not the games will turn out as a stalemate and a race for scientific victory. G&K creates a much more diverse, more fullfilling experience.

Vanilla Civ V is a fun game, dont get me wrong, but G&K took it above and beyond what it was when first released.

The soldier class is kind of the standard thing that you'd expect from a shooter. I'm thinking of either Adept or Sentinel.


I've been a soldier all along, my Shepards too badass to rely on biotics. + i can always use my teammates.

I guess, if Faith is a big deal for you. Personally, I liked it's implementation in IV better, but sure, it improved V from what we had.

I just started an engineer with additional assault rifle skills. So that's pretty badass too. I guess I could add the assault rifle skill tree because I finished the game with a soldier before, I don't know. Anyway, I'm actually quite pleased with the decisions I've made with my soldier so this won't be an alternative playthrough but rather the same thing all over again with more sidequests and a non-traditional class.

I found that opposing all the politcians in the game gets you paragon points most of the time so that's cool because I hate the politicians and I don't wanna be a bad guy.

Yeah, after you score a certain amount of kills with a rifle it unlocks to all the classes. I went to the paragon route as well, still get some renegade though, in times when you have to be badass. Went after Ashley for the trilogy.

You have to go all alien-racist with her in ME1 to have a chance with her.

I usually go with Liara (you can have great romances with her in 1 and 3, and a pretty touching if shorter one in 2) but Jack's is fun because she's crazy. Miranda's isn't bad if you can get past the weird modelling of her face. I think I did Ashley waaaay back the very first time I played ME1 but she's so bland that I never did again. Plus, I love aliens

I went with Ash the first time but I wasn't planning on it. It just kinda happened because I was nice to her. I definitely wanna go with Liara this time.

Definitely should. Based on the quality and content of the various romances I believe Liara to be the "default" romance, it is definitely the most satisfying to me.

My last playthrough I did Tali which I had never even really put any thought into before (I mean she's stuck in a biohazard suit, who knows what's under there?) but it was actually very sweet. She is a real cutie.

Too bad we can't get too see what she's working with under there. Ash got a boobjob and a new haircut in the 3rd, can't let that go to waste.
