    This is a very nice article. Very minor spoilers (some of which was already known through achievement list). Could help people make sure they have that perfect ending.

    And... bookmarked this page. ^.^

    I like this guide better. Its single-page nature makes it much more usable:

    Once again, Planet Scanning in ME turned out to be rather silly. In this case, due to the aforementioned flitting in and out of systems once the Reapers are giving chase, I had to mute my TV so I wouldn't hear "REAPERS EVADED" for the fiftieth time in a row. What they should have done (dreaming here) is added an actual spaceflight mini-game in which you dodge through an asteroid belt or something to lose the Reapers.

    I agree with the mini-game idead of yours it sounds like it would make looking for resorces much less boring especially when getting away from the reapers

    Looks like they still need to update this with the stuff the Leviathan DLC put in.

    While I haven't listed exactly what is found where, I have posted screenshots of the Leviathan scanning locations, separated into three albums (one for each scanning part of the DLC) if it helps anyone. Leviathan - Find Garneau: Leviathan - Find Ann Bryson: Leviathan - Find Leviathan:

    If you use this losers guide , you have to be gay .

    If you have to address people as gay or losers, then you clearly have no life.
  • MiKaBoShI - May 25, 2014 4:24 a.m.

    I was already gay before using this guide... what's your point?
  • jeffrey-sickels - October 17, 2014 6:24 p.m.

    I was already gay. What does that have to do with this guide? What a moron.
