Kaiden or Carth

Posted by chaleur23 on 2007.12.14 at 12:24
What do you think :)?

I'm actually having trouble deciding. Which is saying a lot given (1) how much I love Carth, and (2) that I'm only a quarter of the way through Mass Effect (aka KotoR++).

Kaiden isn't quite as sassy as Carth. I miss that. I don't get to insult him and hurt his man-feelings quite as much, which I always really enjoyed. But some of the dialog options are definitely much more interesting with Kaiden :).

I wanna know what everyone else thinks!

When I finally get my grubby mits on a copy of Mass Effect (and an XBox 360 for that fact), I'll draw my conclusions.

Hehe, I can empathize. My sister and I pooled our resources to buy an XBox just so we could get Mass Effect. Well, we also plan to get Force Unleashed when it comes out, and some other games, but Mass Effect was one of the major driving forces.

carth, hands down. carth is all about the sass + the undying love and kaidan is a little bit of a worrier, especially about the regs, which annoys me. i mean, you're a spectre! come on! who cares? you own the galaxy!

plus, carth is much cuter, orange jacket and all.

i think the romance dialogue in mass effect is a little lacking and not quite as romance-y as i would like it but ooohhhh! if we had that culmination to the romance with carth that we get with kaidan?

*falls out*

what really irks me are the sheer number of guys on bioware's ME message board who bitch about how much they hate kaidan simply because kaidan is voiced by raphael and since he voiced carth, they have to hate him.

i think raphael has a perfect voice for angsty romance and bioware are very wise to keep him on for the ladies.

Yeah, that seriously annoys me too (the Carth haters). But they can be idiots -- as long as BioWare doesn't stop. Thankfully, it doesn't seem like they are going to. They used him in Jade Empire too, I understand, but I never played that one.

I haven't gotten to the end of Mass Effect yet, but I am looking forward to it :D. I'm taking my time and enjoying all the dialog. The game is certainly welcome, and is going to be one of my all time favorites.

I'm only about seven hours into Mass Effect, so I haven't gotten too far with the Kaiden romance plot yet. I like what I've gotten so far, but I have to admit, I kind of miss being called "gorgeous." ;) And Carth is definitely better looking than Kaiden, in my opinion. But I'll have to reserve final judgment for once I'm farther along in Mass Effect.

Carth, ftw! Although, with Kaidan you get the hot love scene...

Okay, I'm now finished Mass Effect (at least the first time through). I have to say, it had a lot less character development in general than KotoR, including Kaidan, who was not as well developed as Carth. I guess I can hope they are saving some of his story for Mass Effect 2. Though it may be all the characters are completely different.

Is Kaiden the big angst ball that Carth is? Cause really that's what made me just want to love him. He needs hug so badly!

Yeah. He's still an angst-ball. It's great :).

hmmmm If there isn't alot of character development I have a feeling I would go with Carth. But I'll definitly need to get the game before I can properly decide. Will have to wait till we get another new adapter though. The one we bought to reply the adapter that popped, melted. Microsoft is on my shit list right now.

You should probably wait until you've played the trilogy before you decide. And that will take about four years (my guess). So in the meantime, you'll just have to deal with angsty Carth/Kaidan goodness :).

(P.S. I had just started playing the XBOX version of kotor when my 360 got the three red rings. I think Malak broke it because he knew I was coming for him.)

Wow that is true evil. Breaking your 360 in order to avoid the ass kicking he knew was coming. I think my brother was playing Halo 3 when the adapter we bought only 30 days earlier had melted. Halo 3 was just too rubust.

I have to say Kaiden, although I think I'm in the wrong community to voice that opinion. Carth does get extra points for the fact that his hair moves!

I don't think it's the wrong group. I think the voice acting is a lot of the brilliance. And I'm pretty sure they knew what they were doing when they made it as close to the same character as they could get away with ;).

I honestly love both of them and can't decide... and I don't want to decide :P I see no need to *hehe*

I always love the one a bit more, whose game I'm playing
