Oh it's definitely possible that some things are bug riddled, still...

Ugh, I really got screwed when the 360 I played ME2 on died. Apparently I was supposed to meet

^You might be able to recreate your old save by going here and picking the closest match. You can then use the modified version of Gibbed's ME2 Save Editor to change the name, gender, alignment and ME1 plot flags to whatever you like. Not perfect, but it might be a start.

Re: Mass Effect 3

That looks way too complicated but thanks

So what happens if you scan too much and the Reapers actually catch you? I keep running away I'm-a scared

Re: Mass Effect 3

The Reapers catching you just means a critical mission failure screen.

Doesn't automatically happen when the Reaper alertness bar fills, though. You'll have a chance to escape them.

I liked to scan all over the place until I uncovered all of the assets in a system, and if I didn't have time to retrieve them all, I'd fly out of the system to avoid the Reapers, then fly right back into the system, make a beeline for the asset, then scan it/pick it up before the Reapers got to me, then make a beeline right back out of the system again.

Done that a few times myself. Right now, involved in Quarian/Geth affairs, have gotten the mercenary companies on my side and settled the Turian/Krogan issue.

I LOVE going hand to hand. HATE the glitch that occasionally occurs in combat that does not allow me to switch weapons.

That site saved the whole scanning thing for me. It was feeling beyond tedious until I found it. Of the three games, I found the resource gathering in ME3 to be the worst.

Re: Mass Effect 3

You'd rather be slowly scanning a single planet for minutes each?! I definitely prefer ME3 over the first two in the resource gathering.

I think I liked it better than ME2, but I miss having actual exploration in ME1.

Re: Mass Effect 3

ME1 was ok in that retrospect, but it got somewhat dull when you had to expend time searching for things that weren't marked on the map for example and going through terrain that will slow you down considerably (that was my biggest grief... aside from that it was fine).

ME2 was actually good in terms of resource gathering - plus the interiors were not repetitive.

ME3 is obviously further stripped of necessity for raw materials... but that's probably because in the previous game you were part of Cerberus and needed them for upgrades. The Alliance merely retrofitted the interior and repainted the hull (going back to the first game actually - although I must admit that the security field between the bridge and war room is annoying seeing how you ALWAYS have to walk through it).

Anyway... I'm on my second playtrough (want to raise my EMS to 4000 this time) as a male Shepard (much better looking than my previous one) and will be romancing Kaidan this time (seeing how the scenes/dialogue between the two are more fleshed out/detailed/less rushed compared to Cortez [which is a shame as I think both deserve equally fleshed out scenes]).

Btw, is it me, or does the face editor in ME3 seem to be a bit more... limited compared to the first 2 games?
