wow...i think i'm going to have to re-play ME2 with all DLCs keeping in mind all these possible outcomes.
Of course the DLC come into play in a way that can benefit you. Like if you completed the Shadow Broker DLC, then you get benefits like weapon mods that will give you and advantage, Information and Creds.
There is also a big choice you have to make in ME2, where you nice to the Illusive Man or not, i.e. if you are Pro-Ceberus or not.
Then there is the choice you made with Morden to keep the cure data or not.
There is so much decisions that may result in things being changed.
And of course don't forget the Rachni Queen from ME1 :P
Either way, there's going to be a crap-ton of decisions from both previous games that they're going to have to find a way to resolve, and not just with an e-mail on your terminal like in ME2.
I figured most of the LI's would come back with major roles, I mean, they're bringing back Ash (haven't seen any mention of Kaiden actually, but I assume he'll be back for those who chose him) and Liara, and Garrus. I'm surprised Tali isn't playable, but given her position with the Quarians, Geth AND the Normandy, I assume she'll have a big part to play, even just as an NPC. Jack I'm not bothered about... didn't particularly like her, but Miranda would definitely be useful with her knowledge of and from Cerberus. Sure, they've said all main characters will return in some form or another... I just hope none of them are lame cameo's like ME2.
Wonder if the Shadowbroker base will have much of a part to play?
If they include post-game gameplauy, I hope they do it a little better than ME2 also... at least have some people's dialogue change to represent that you're not just starting the game.
So many questions, too much time to ponder them x.x
i already have a few saves with collector base kept and the illusive man happy and then vice versa. then with the genophage data kept/erased. then with kasumi's grey box kept/destroyed. i'm wondering 2 things.
one: what impact if any will uploading cerberus's data to the alliance have on the story?
two: will kasumi's grey box have any impact on the story?
It's funny to see some stores already offering pre-rorders for the game, but not only that, but to see people have already reviewed it to 3 stars average: Link
Damn time travellers ruining it for the rest of us (I'd rather think it's time travellers than that people are still just that stupid).

..i know u're not ignoring my post buddy. i know it wasn't memorable in terms of size or content but y it seemed so relevant to me is because the grey box is supposed to contain a huge load of info. on the nefarious activities of the galaxy and added to that it being important enough to be in the highly secure vault of Donovan Hock. it just made me wonder if it was important enough to impact the story in the finale.
and about the pre-ordering thing...isn't it way too early especially since there isn't a definitive date of release. stupid is right...how can u rate something when u haven't played it yet or know the exact story and content
There's the same problem with reviews all over the place, though I know some have disabled posting reviews until the release date, but one which sticks out is Amazon. So many people leave reviews for unreleased games/books/cd's/you name it, but just saying "Can't wait for this!". Then others will leave a pre-reease review complaining about people leaving pre-release reviews, thus continuing to screw the whole thing up...
It drives me completely bonkers; you may be able to tell.
