oohhhhhhhhh i havent read anywhere "dont have kaiden & ash in the same team"

Well suppose i have 2 choices do more side quests .... then try virmire an pray to god both ally achievements unlock before one of them dies.

OR

continue after one dies get to Ilos and hope the survivor unlocks there, then go back and save the other one .... get ilos .... this is so stupid!

Well ive completed 16 story missions
and 28 side quests .... is that enough to unlock the achievements during virmire or Ilos??

Uhhh I'd say you need to do at least 34 assignments for those achievements.

Yes, you get the chance to use your save for the game and continue the story with consequences that happened from the first.

I was going to suggest a strategy similar to what I did on Dragon Age. I didn't feel like playing through twice. SO I made a save before I had to make choices, did one method, and then reloaded for the other. SO in this case, you could have saved on the Normandy before going to Virmire, chose to save Kaiden, and then after that was complete, reload and play through to save Ashley. Boom, you get both achievements, assuming you have enough side missions done to unlock both on Virmire.

But cool that you got it anyway

Well i actually tried that but when i landed on ilos the achievement still hadnt unlocked ... so i jus reloaded my save and did a few side quests ... i think i logged around 55 quests in total (including main quests) to trigger the soldier and sentinal achievements. Im guessing jus hand full more on the next play through to trigger the rest of them!

Anyway thanx for the tips everyone!

I got the sentinel ally and then nuked him on virmire.
It was quite hard to do, since I've gotten in the habit to nuke Ashley and "get it on" with Kaidan. It's around 30-40 sidequests and 10-15 mainstory thingy you have to complete with them in your squad.

on my fist playthrough i just played for the fun factor and the story and i missed out on my second ally achievement. i was rolling around w/ ashley as my main mate and any random team mate. i didn't know you could 2 for 1 in a single playthrough. ah wells.... n-e-wase just unlocked liara's (which is the most annoying) and tali's. damn i still got garrus, wrex, and kaiden.... argg!!!
