    Just been thinking about who is likely to be recruitable in Mass Effect 3, and how difficult Bioware have made it for themselves with all the possible outcomes.

    Here's my thinking on who will/won't be in ME3 and why (assuming everyone was recruited, loyal and survived):

    As the only character guaranteed to still be alive it seems likely that she will be a squad member.

    Quite likely. Not like he's got anything better to do (or does he?)

    It's possible that whichever one survived Virmire could become part of Shepard's crew. The additional dialgoue required for this might dissuade Bioware from doing it, though.

    Mainly recruited to help fight the Collectors, and after their destruction presumably those particular talents…

    Ok, so I've finally caved in and bought Mass Effect 2 for the 360, albeit at the low-low price of £15.85 inc. postage.

    Why? Achievements. Sad to say but it annoys me that there's no evidence of the fact that I've ever played ME2, and my e-peen needs some stroking (too far?)

    Sony, Microsoft, Valve, Bioware et al...if you're reading this: give me a damned cross-platform achievement system so I don't have to buy the same game twice, just because I prefer playing it on the PC.

    Not only that, but I'm also going to have to buy all the DLC again.

    Mass Effect 2, if you weren't such a good game I'd hunt you down and kill you for this!

    More of those lovely homophones today- two, too and to. What's the difference?

    Two - Simply the spelling of the number 2, e.g. 'Two plus two is four', 'Two nuns walk into a bar'.

    Too - Is used when you are describing something that is to an excessive degree, over, or more than enough, e.g. 'There are too many stupid people in the world', 'Bill Gates has too much money', 'I've had too much wine'. It is also used in place of 'also' or 'likewise', e.g. 'Can I play too?', 'Is The Old Republic going to be awesome too?'

    To - Used in all other cases, of which there are many. Just remember the rules above and if the context doesn't fit then it'll be 'to'.

    Hey kids! Welcome to Learning with Fridgey, a series where I'll be looking at common grammar mistakes. Yeah, talk about exciting! Keep in mind that as a (sigh) 'limey' I use British English spellings (which basically means, amongst other things, you'll find extra u's in various places such as armour, favour, etc). Don't worry, I know that not everyone can talk proper like what I do [sic].

    One of the most common mistakes I see when reading forum comments and instant messages is the incorrect use of there/their/they're. I'll set out the groundrules of how we determine which to choose with some examples.

    They're - They're is a contraction of the words 'they are', and is only ever used in this fashion. For example, "They're not very good at runni…
