Re: Mass Effect 2

18 hours of play and I have plenty to do still (on Illum) the mission to get Thane was fantastic and I have gotten Miranda's trust too. Doesn't feel like 18 hours I am hooked

Re: Mass Effect 2

Okay, I beat the game: the last boss battle was a bit too video gamey, but better than the final form of Saren.



I'm going to finish up the side quests I had left and then start my FemShep Renegade play through.

Here's what I think happened regarding your spoiler:
Since you didn't use that character, you didn't invest squad points into that person's skills, so that might have made it easier for that character to die. Plus, you might not have done research into stuff like tech skills or armor, which might have had something to do with it.

Maybe, I did do a lot of the upgrades (including all of the armor), but not all of them. And I set up for all of my characters to auto-level except for Shepard. It just seemed a bit random

Re: Mass Effect 2

When you buy an upgrade for something, does that make it automatically work? Or do you have to equip it to your weapon/armor somehow? Man, I'm playing on Casual and I find the game surprisingly difficult! I just finished the "Archangel" mission and I almost died many times. I'm learning to use my squadmate's shield-strip powers as much as possible, though, so that helps. I'm a Soldier. Oh yeah and having ammo is really annoying, I miss the old system. I keep running out of ammo on my assault rifle in the middle of a fight.

People are saying that replaying the last mission again, they got a different result... so no one knows for sure any more. It would really suck if it was completely random.

Armor upgrades have to be equipped in the captain's room (which is kind of lame, since you have to load a few times to do that and come back to the mission). I believe that the damage upgrades are automatic, but they usually upgrade a new item to research, so you'll have to trek back to the ship to do that as well.

They probably could have found a better way to do that from a menu anyway.

Re: Mass Effect 2

The game gives you enough time to


I'd be curious to see some of the less optimal playthroughs. On youtube, someone posted an ending where... well, bad things happen. It was hilarious actually. :lol

Re: Mass Effect 2

I think this was the best game i've ever played............ omg that was an epic experience. We wait 2 years on average for a film sequal that lasts 2-3 hours...... I just waited 2 years for 50 hours of pure epicness...


Thank you bioware!

100/5 Stars!

Regarding the ending, I managed to have everyone survive on my first try.

Re: Mass Effect 2

No where near finished this game I think, but I am just so loving the epic feeling

Gotta admit, walking around the Citadel listening to all those updates about things that happened in the last game, and getting messages from people I helped in the last game make me happy inside, getting to know the things I do get remembered

Have to admit I love the new Normandy's feeling of realism, in terms of areas to visit.

Re: Mass Effect 2

The only weird thing I did was have Thane as an initial squad leader.
