Mass Effect Characters Not Worth Trying To Save | Screen Rant

The Mass Effect series allows players to potentially spare several characters from death throughout the franchise, but some aren't worth the effort.

The Mass Effect trilogy introduces players to hundreds of characters throughout the course of the series, and Shepard's actions when interacting with these NPCs in many cases has a large impact on later events in the franchise. But not every choice has significant effects, and that can result in making certain characters not worth the effort of trying to save.

Various are rendered mostly pointless in later games. For example, saving the Rachni Queen in ME1 still results in the indoctrination of the Rachni in ME3. However, the explanation as to how this occurs will vary based on previous choices.

Other  are minor to a point of not having any noticeable consequences. While characters who are spared in ME1 may have cameos in future parts of the series, these often don't add any notable content to the player's experience.

Fist is a character that Shepard is able to get into contact with in Mass Effect 1. As a former agent of the Shadow Broker, Fist is being hunted down by Wrex - a task that Shepard has the option to assist with - and is responsible for setting Tali up in a meeting with Saren's men. While on the Citadel, players can track Fist down to his office and fight their way through to confronting him. Ultimately, this ends with Shepard being given two options on how to handle him. Fist can be either executed or released - if he is released, he goes into hiding from the Shadow Broker and has a small cameo in Mass Effect 2. But if Wrex is in the party, he will execute Fist regardless of Shepard's choice. Given Fist's lack of relevance, it's easier to just let Wrex kill him.

Dr. Saleon is encountered as part of Garrus' personal assignment in Mass Effect 1. A Salarian geneticist, Saleon escaped from the Citadel following an investigation into his illegal organ harvesting practices. Shepard has the option to help Garrus track him down, and players can then confront him aboard his ship later on in the game. Regardless of how the conversation with Saleon progresses, he will turn hostile and has to be killed by Shepard's party. And while convincing Garrus to spare Saleon from execution and take him into custody first does have an , this change is disregarded in ME2, making the player's decision regarding Saleon almost entirely pointless.

While the Mass Effect series does feature several choices that have lasting consequences in regards to later events in the timeline, not every decision has such significant ramifications. Ultimately these characters aren't worth the effort of trying to spare unless players are looking to experience new dialogue for the first time.

KUWTK: Khloe & Tristan Appear Indecisive Over Surrogacy Option

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are sharing their reluctance with using surrogacy to conceive on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is following Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's journey to welcome a second child together. With the couple's strongest option being surrogacy, there appears to be some reluctance after they were asked a series of "uncomfortable" questions. Khloe shared how "freaked out" she is over the possibility of the surrogacy process not working out.

Fans were surprised when Khloe and Tristan opened up about their plans to expand their family. The two just announced their reconciliation last year after more than a year apart. It was during Khloe's first pregnancy when she learned about the NBA player's first cheating scandal. Shortly after welcoming their daughter True Thompson, the Boston Celtics player was caught kissing Kylie Jenner's former BFF Jordyn Woods in his second scandal. But after taking some time to just co-parent their daughter, Tristan was able to get back into Khloe's good graces over the course of the quarantine. Now with them back together and fueling engagement rumors, the family appears ready to make True a big sister.

During the latest episode of KUWTK, the Good American founder shared the evaluation process she and Tristan had to do ahead of hiring a surrogate to carry their baby. "I have been instructed to go the surrogacy route," Khloe told the therapist, as captured by E! News. "And Tristan, luckily, was onboard and felt comfortable. I think more so because he saw my sister go through it." But after getting asked a series of "uncomfortable" questions, the couple became worried over the possible challenges. "What are your beliefs about fetal reduction or termination of pregnancy due to multiple pregnancies," the therapist asked. "Say the embryo split and the surrogate was carrying twins suddenly."

After saying they were fine if this were to occur, the therapist reminded them of all of the decision-makers in a surrogacy pregnancy. "What if your surrogate wasn't onboard with that?" Khloe shared her surprise with the question. "But, don't they have to kind of go with what our wishes are?" she asked in response. "So, she could terminate the pregnancy with any unplanned outcome," the therapist said while reminding the couple that it's still the surrogate's body. During her confessional, Khloe expressed how "freaked out" she is by the process now that she's been reminded of the possible setbacks. "I think, as the questions go by…I know it's her body my baby, but I really did not put two-and-two together that that means she has the control whether she would want to terminate the twin," Khloe said.

While talking to her mother Kris Jenner, Khloe shared her worries about surrogacy and compared it to her sister who welcomed two children via a surrogate. "It's just scary like hearing a lot of those things," Khloe said. "Kim just made this seem so seamless, and maybe for her it was. I think she's way less micro-mangey than I am." After talking it over with Tristan, Khloe still seemed reluctant but wants to take time before making a final decision. "I do think this is the right choice for us, but I'm not gonna be rushed into it. I'm not gonna force it," she said. She might be keeping a positive mindset while working out the kinks with her boyfriend. He's currently involved in yet another cheating scandal that could put a pause on things.
