So that ME3 Citadel DLC has made me go back to ME1 & ME2 and play through everything again Renegade style over the last weekend.
Man evil Shepard is such a jackass.
Also with that said ME3 is really not as bad as I remember it. Combat wise it certainly plays a lot smoother than its previous incarnations and there's this sort of lingering urgency in the atmosphere and reflection going on that was missing in 1 & 2.
That said things are going to feel weird hitting that DLC again as my evil Shepard.
