Re: Mass Effect 2

Arrival is going to be 5 solo missions.
You got it. Admiral Hackett rings you up once again, but this time for a personal favor. A friend of his, Dr. Amanda Kenson, has been captured by Batarians and accused of terrorism. Hackett urges discretion, so he requests that you go in solo (really, no squad mates).
There is more info and a rundown of the first mission here:

I don't mind the being solo thing. It's not like dragon age where your party is critical for your success

Besides, they don't record additional squad dialogue for DLC anyway, so it's not like we'll be missing much.

Did you choose the Paragon or Renegade options for the fight? IIRC if you did that they both still talk to you after their argument.
I was a full paragon by that point so I had the option, but my Shepard was desperate to boink Miranda so he sided with her anyway and pissed Jack off. Later, I went to talk to Jack and I had another paragon option available so I chose that, she forgave me and became loyal. So I got both of them on my side and got to boink Miranda. Result.
You talk to Mordin during your Romance? The stuff he says about having sex Miranda is hilarious. I romanced her on my 2nd playthrough just to see what would happen when Miranda and Ashley meet each other.
what happened or do we wait to ME3 to find out?

Do not read if you don't want a major spoiler.

Hoping something will happen in ME3 .
If you really want to spoil the first level, watch the last few minutes of this. http://www.giantbomb.com/ask-me-anyt...rival/17-3929/

Yeah, why do some people keep talking during a walkthrough video anyway it's annoying.

Re: Mass Effect 2

So I finally got my copy of ME2 for PS3 last week. I already played the game on my PC, so I knew what to expect. Anyway, instead of playing as a soldier I'm playing as an infiltrator. And man, I am having a ton of fun. I never played any of the DLC on my PC so I'm also having fun with that. The Kasumi DLC was a lot of fun, and I like using her on my team. I also enjoyed the Overlord DLC.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Both Stealing Memory and Overlord are solid DLC packs, though I think I prefer Overlord. For the most part I thought it was just an excuse to run around and shoot some geth, until I got to that final sequence and the ending... Good stuff.

Yeah, that sounds like the primary reason why they decided to leave out the squadmates at all. Although for someone playing as a soldier, it's going to be so boring.

I think this is the first time I've actually been really excited about DLC
