Hah!

After the Mass Effect debacle left me a bit sour, I found this to be quite a fun little diversion. Good work, it couldn't have been easy trying to write out so many different scenarios while keeping it all together.

I don't have a problem with the endings Mike, I'm just glad my choices ACTUALLY matter!
I DO have a problem with .61 where you almost mentioned "the microorganism that must not be named". Stealing that idea from George Lucas shows you CLEARLY have no sense of artistic integrity.

I loved this, great work! Played through the Asari, and I was laughing a good bit. =) And no need for a different ending with Mass Effect story. It was smart, funny, and above all made sense, with closure at the end to boot!

I loved the bit about the stock photo from Kat.. My wife thought something was wrong with me hehe Also the Elcor play.. wow that was painful and funny at the same time. =)

I can't wait to play the other two.

edit: BTW I'll be buying your three books for this great effort.

I sure hope I'm not the only one who read all of Virgil's lines in Johnny Depp's voice

By the way. That was amazing

Did the Krogan story, thought it was smeggin' brilliant (though, he did seem a bit...soft for a Krogan, but oh well). Plus, I love the whole aspect of following Sheperd's story throughout Mass Effect 2, felt very Forrest Gump-esque. Actually, that sounds like a good idea for the next Mass Effect game, where you import your save and just follow Sheperd throughout the story, always missing him/her at last second.

Top marks, Mr Writer Guy, well done.

Great story, Mike Kayatta, I especially liked the consistent facetious tone you managed to maintain throughout the adventures.

Love it. The tone seems to stay humorous even throughout the high action bits. Only complaint is
Captain
Katyana'Zorah nar Rayya. First, Tali'Zorah is an only child, and
if she is a Captain, she would have a "vas" name not a "nar" name.

Hey, that's awesome! I hope you like them.

Also, thanks to everyone else in the thread for your kind words! I'm super pleased that you guys seem to be getting a kick out of it!

That was awesomely entertaining.

Better writing than most of ME2 at that <_<

Typo on 60: "I no that must have been difficult." And 62: "I always knew the Collector's harvested other species,". 92: "I'm more fit than [a] Batarian on his mother's hatchday". 114: "You've proved that and more in the short time I've know you." Also, on 114, shouldn't references to your father actually be to your mother if you picked Asari?

"I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite choose-your-own-adventure on the Escapist."

Oh yes, I really liked this one. Keep up the good work!

I enjoyed my asari adventure right until the end when I realized

She is probably dead thanks to the Reapers moving The Citadel to Earth and murdering everyone inside it.

But other than that, it was fantastic. Was spot on to the tone of the actual games, well done.
