I'm curious as to the majority choice on here, too. Also if, as players using the trainer, the choice we made was actually influenced by our use of the trainer, or the possibilities it provides us for the third game.
I'll start off by saying that personally I chose to destroy the base. Handing over the base to TIM felt like handing the only collector beam weapon in existance to Stalin and making him promise to only ever use it against Hitler's forces.
What about you?
But than again like you said, it would be like giving stalin some super powerful weapon and telling him only to use it on hitler.....
But THAN........ The allies did use a Nuclear weapon on Innocents to end the war. We cant classify all the Japanese as the bad guy...
So... My stand would be, either decision's would be Good and Bad.
one minute he's for humanity and the next he's for global domination.
Since I have the Rachni, Geth, my survived Team Members and maybe the quarian's I don't see the need for Cerberus and the Illusive Man.
Like what Shepard said (I will continue to save humanity without the help of Cerberus and the Illusive Man)
I'm now on my 5th playthrough (I know, junkie^^), one of the 4 completed ones is a triggerhappy renegade, evil SOB who completely agrees with TIM, tells the council to shove their reinstatement where the sun doesn't shine and bangs the nasty little b*tch Miranda, betraying Liara with her.
Another is a pure paragon who is faithfull to Liara, humbly accepts his reinstatement and views TIM as nothing more than the bank-account to his mission of saving the galaxy.
If you don't make each playthrough a different experience, what's the point?? And those dudes and dudettes at the Bioware-Forums who feel the need to actually justify a decision they make in a computer-game, well, need I say more?
One was the default BioWare female shepard when I didn't have a PC save of ME1
Second was my own imported Paragon female shep
Third was my own imported male Paragon shep
Fourth was new game + with the male Paragon shep, but made a lot of renegade choices
So I have four different sheps to choose from, but I prefer my fourth - the male half paragon/half renegade shep - and will be using that to play ME3, at least the first time through. However, despite playing through 5 times with various different choices, I still always destroyed the base.
I went back to a previous save with one of them and saved the base, but I just felt dirty when I did it, so I went back again and blew the thing up.
If we hand it to TIM then it will be like all the fighting against the Collecter will be for naught as its our ass that is busting fighting, and then we just gladly hand it to TIM.Its just doesn't seem right somehow.
Quick question:if we want to play a new game where the Council still survives,how do we do it?
From what I've heard there's no other way except than that to import a save.
