Mass Effect 3 romance guide

Diana Allers


Above: Given Shepard’s track record with reporters, this could go very wrong very quickly

Race: Human

Role: Reporter

Preference: Males and females

Personality: Promiscuous, annoying

Diana Allers serves as the television reporter for most of the galaxy, and will accompany the crew of the Normandy if given the chance. Throughout her stay, she’ll ask some invasive questions (none of which include “where can I get more clothing?”), which can be countered with intelligent, calculated responses for a boost in reputation, or frustrated dismissal for nothing more than personal satisfaction.  If at any time you becomes less concerned with romancing her and more concerned with getting her the hell of your ship, all you need do is speak to her twice in the starboard cargo bay.


Romance walkthrough

The first step is to seek out Diana and invite her to stay on the Normandy. Find her in the lounge of Normandy’s docking bay at the Citadel the very first time you visit. Simply talk to her and agree to bring her along.

Diana will request private interviews with Shepard after two of the games Priority missions (Citadel and Thessia). As long as you don’t get angry and select “this interview is over” during your conversation, you can initiate things by flirting at the end of the first interview. You can also visit Diana at anytime down on the engineering deck.


Closing the deal

It is during the second private interview (after Priority: Thessia) that you can confirm your romance with Diana. Unlike many of the other romances, this is the final scene, meaning nothing else happens before you embark on the game’s final missions.

    Absolutely loving that picture! Thank you for the laugh as always Gamesradar.

    I love how the husk looks all clingy and Shep looks like she just wants to get out of there. I told Diana to get lost from the get go. I think Chobot is attractive irl, but they made her look hideous in the game. She looks like she has Droopy Dog's face. It was all a bit too much uncanny-valley for me to have her on my ship.

    I hear that. Her cheeks look like she just had an allergic reaction to peanuts.

    Agreed!

    Shame I couldn't punch her when I rejected her, My Shep just hates reporters and people who lick video game controllers
  • DevonOO7 - March 9, 2012 1:29 p.m.

    I just beat the game.

    Wow... Samantha's scene is terrible.
  • sutrebla15 - March 9, 2012 1:58 p.m.

    No Miranda Lawson in this game? :(

    She's in the game and you can have a relationship with her, but it's a long distance one, and I'm not sure if there is a romance scene. All I know is that you need to have a ME 2 save where you have a relationship with her.

    They made up for it with Ashely...visually, still wanted to punch her in the face a couple of times though. And Jack's hot now.
  • majorsuave - March 11, 2012 11:22 a.m.

    Mini spoiler about Jack ------ Jack's hot as hell now... When I talked to her at Grissom Academy she said "You want to pin me against the wall of the cargo bay again?" Which my Carlos Sheppard did in ME2 before romancing Tali.

    Man.. That is the funniest thing iv ever heard

    That image is hlarious! I wish your love interest got turned into a husk at some point in ME3 now, but you could still "complete the romance"!
  • inkyspot - March 10, 2012 4:19 a.m.

    I romanced Miranda Lawson, so I guess I don't get to bang before the final mission, (Sad) That dude who takes care of the ships in the cardo bay tried to romance me in the club (what gives?) Needless to say, while I was flatered my male Shepard kindly turned him down ... lol

    ashley williams guide, 2nd paragraph: "Both new and imported female Shepards can romance Ashley, but actions you took in previous games can complicate things." I assume this is just a typo, or is it possible to romance ash as a femshep??
  • Matt Hughes - March 10, 2012 8:29 a.m.

    Oops, definitely a typo, thanks for the catch :)
  • Mishmonster - March 15, 2012 9:14 a.m.

    They finally made a FemShep, but they still didn't improve the romance options for her. They're crap! Three females, some not human; one human male that possibly didn't make it thru ME1; and a Turian? WTF??
  • Stegga - March 21, 2012 1:56 p.m.

    Has anyone actually kept Kaidan alive all the way through? Of all the people I know not a single one kept him alive in ME1. Although for my second playthrough I really don't want Ashley as a squad member, she's such a moany bitch
