Mass Effect 2: Sole Survivor by higheternity Mass Effect 2: Sole Survivor by higheternity
Mass Effect 2 - Bioware

Anyway, going through my second playthrough with my Adept, Noah Shepard. Practical Paragon. Colonist and Sole Survivor.

Yeah.... given that Cerberus is responsible for one of the two highly traumatic events in his life, Noah isn't going to be all lovey-dovey with Cerberus.

I look forward to having him deny Cerberus information and resources throughout the game. I can just see him flipping the Illusive Man the bird at the end before he flies off with the Normandy...


tl;dr :

Akuze is a touchy subject to bring up, especially if you work for CERBERUS.


EDIT: Fixed a typo (hur hur, 'experment') and polished up the text bubbles. I didn't expect people to you know, see this (O_o)

CHARGE!

I was always annoyed that you couldn't mention Akuze to TIM (since Liara seems to bring it up EVERY TIME YOU TALK); second only to not being able to throw "Ah, yes, 'Reapers,'" in the face of the turian Councilor. ;)

yeah this was one of the most disappointing things about ME2 for me you can't bring up your past with cerberus if you choose sole survivor the other disappointing thing is can't get legion early

I didn't even choose that background and still had a vendetta...shooting people in the face is fun.

Damn I never even thought of that. Guess I'd make a good writer for BioWare... :lol:

Funny as shit. I wanted to kill them all anyway when I learned it was Cerberus. I also noticed Shepard doesn't actually ever mention anything Cerberus did in the first game either regardless of his background. No mention of Kahoku (spelling?) or anything like that.

*Laughs* My Vangard Bart Shepard agrees with Noah on this, then again he's sole survivor AND Spacer, so yeah he's very, very pro-alliance.
 I just started my first ME2 playthough, but I was kind of hoping for a moment like this, or one where Shepard goes to Anderson, and asks (or begs if it's a comedic fan comic) to rejoin the Alliance, or the "Hey! I just woke up from a coma a week/month/short-amount-of-time ago! It's not like I chose to wake up in a Cerberus lab!" when he talks to Kaiden come Horizon.
Any way, Brilliant comic.

I know right? I almost stopped playing after this scene, it's just incomprehensible to me that there's no option for a sole survivor to take another path.

I always went with Earthborn. If I had gone through Akuze I would have probably started shooting the second I heard Cerberus. Any Cerberus operative around would only have survived long enough to provide info.

A flaw in the script.

I felt a high sense of acomplishment blowing up the collector ship just to piss off the Illusive man. Cerberus is sneaky...and not the cool ninja type sneaky....they are more like...the herpes on the toilet seat type of sneaky....

I REALLY wanted Shepard to mention to TIM Akuze in the final battle, their conversations and then get his revenge on the entire Cerberus organisation as they betrayed him. But, no............

I always thought it was annoying that Bioware tried pushing the "Cerberus isn't really evil, No really!" outlook on us and yet didn't give us the chance to slap Miranda& Jacob in the face with the While Thresher maw lure experiments and Rear Admiral Kahoku's fate.

Probably my favorite thing relating to this was when Shepard encounters Tela Vasir in lair of the Shadow Broker. Shepard is unable to justify how his/her working with Cerberus is any different from Vasir's own dealings with the Shadow Broker. There's not even a paragon option.

This is true to the edge! During all of Mass Effect, you are given clues of a group pulling the strings in almost all major corporations you find, CERBERUS. Then, Corporal Toombs tells you the truth in the face, landing like a bomb over a recovered city.
