this last time however i chose Udina.
now for the mass effect 2 part:
everywhere i go in my new ME2 game import (using my latest Paragon-Udina combo) i hear Udina is ****in **** up. im about to pick up Archangel but it bugs the heck out of me if i should stick it out with Udina or return to ME1 and pick Anderson again!
this latest ME2 run through (my 3rd ME2) im playing on Insanity, btw and since ive just started it wouldnt be too much of a hassle to restart with Anderson picked in ME1.
can ya help a space pimp out!?!?
Well I don't know the impact in ME2 of having chosen Udina over Anderson, if there is one at all or if it's simply cosmetic.
But I'm pretty sure that you can make that choice anew when you start ME2, during the little 'debrief' bit while you are in the shuttle with Miranda and Jacob right after the beginning. You can choose either Udina or Anderson at that stage, and whatever you did for real in your ME1 game has no impact.
So there's no need to go back and replay any part of ME1 to make that change.
I've also read that insanity is pretty tough unless you do it from a new game +, so good luck with that!
I myself ran into the horrific 'can't get Samara if you start the Shadow Broker DLC before getting the info from Liara' bug with my only competed fem Shep from ME1, who was also my only renegade from ME1. What a brutal let down that was. So now I'm faced with starting all over again with her after having put in about 16 hours or so prior to that point. I hope I'll feel up to it before ME3 arrives, although maybe after a run or two through that I'll be more excited about a return to ME2, much like how finishing ME2 got me jazzed up to go back and finish ME1 another time with a different dude.
