Yeah. It's been a good 30 hours, but (for me, and my play style) about half the length of ME2 and a third of ME1.

Anyway. I haven't touched the Live stuff. I let my Live account run out (to detox me from MW2 and get me to play some RPGs, this and New Vegas).

Anyway, I have almost a full green bar for my "green bar of war" thing. I have a readiness of 50% which I think (if I have this right) is some kind of default for not having played Live.

As I got all my crew out in ME2 and made a lot of turns-out-right choices I kind of want the option of having the most choices for the end of the game.

Just how much MP should I have to play to get them? How long does it take (say a few MP games per evening) to get the GR percentage to go up to 100%?

Basically want to know the time-reward-investment thing for getting back onto Live just to finish the SP game off as I want.

Then you don't need to play MP at all.

Oh, did the Extended make the GR% redundant or something?

Without MP you cannot change GR, but with the EC, you do not need to raise GR above 50% in order to have a high enough EMS to get all ending options.

Before the Extended Cut, the best ending required 8000 war assets at the default 50% galactic readiness. Now it only requires 6200.

How the heck did you get 90 hours from Me1 O_o (unless you count multiple playthroughs)
If steam is to be believed I have 29 hours played, and I played through once+ started 2 games I never really got around to.

I can finish a full run of ME1 (sidequests, minerals, etc.) in roughly 18-20 hours. Just sayin'. Was it your first time and did you have it on Insanity from the get-go?

It took you 90 hours to finish ME1? Even on my first play through of it I only to around 25 hours, now I can do everything in around 15. You are terrible.
