Re: Mass Effect 2

^ Yeah that's the point I failed to make, I hope it's going to be the first heavy-duty, meaty DLC for ME2 precisely because it comes with a pretty hefty price tag attached.

This is our biggest DLC yet, period.

It also marks the real beginning where we expand the ME2 story in preparation for ME3.

As time gets closer to release, we'll have coverage on more of the awesome things you can expect out of LotSB
Well, we'll find out in a couple of weeks anyhoo.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Yeah, I'm looking forward to the DLC, but I'd really rather have one featuring Ashley instead of Liara. Never was a big fan of hers.

Okay, I think I'm re-obsessed with this game again. I just completed my third playthrough, this time as a Renegon FemShep (by the end of the game, she was about 90% Renegade, 55% Paragon). Now I just need to run through it with my Paragade Shepard to hit for the cycle.

Re: Mass Effect 2

^ You're not obsessed as long as you remember the number of your playthroughs. I've lost count in ME1 back in the day

I've lost track of my playthroughs, it's at least 7.

Re: Mass Effect 2

I can't imagine doing seven playthroughs. Can there really be enough variation that you're still finding new stuff in #7? Or are you including multiple playthroughs with the same character?

I'll probably have at least six playthroughs in ME2 by the time I'm done. I need to replay it with both my male Shepards, one because I finished him before any post-release DLC had come out, and the other because there were a couple choices I made that I want to do differently.

Re: Mass Effect 2

^ I thought 2 was enough

I have a male and female character in my saved games. My male one is original in terms of there from my 1st playthroughs of ME 1 & 2 so what ever happens, happens. My female character for the most part follows the opposite choice paths so I can experience a totally different universe.

I just don't see a point for a 3rd character as of yet though I was thinking of maybe a new character to be killed off at the end of number 2 so it would change ME3 even more.

Both, done different characters and just reloaded and played again. Paragon, Renegade, different classes. Getting Legion waaay early was a very interesting playthrough.

I'm a cheapskate and trade in values are wimpy, i get a lotta mileage outta my games.

I kind of like the variations of characters I came up with (four).

1. Paragon Male: Vanguard, Colonist/Sole Survivor, saved the Council.
2. Paragon Female: Infiltrator, Earthborn/War Hero, sacrificed the Council.
3. Renegade Female: Adept/Sentinel, Colonist/Ruthless, saved the Council.
4. Renegade Male: Soldier, Spacer/Ruthless, let the Council die.

It definitely makes things more interesting, especially the two female characters, whose morality is less black and white than the two male characters'.

I'd love to be able to get Legion early, but I'm not sure if I want to get my whole crew killed to do it.

Bringing him along on Tali's recruitment and loyalty missions would be interesting, though.

Re: Mass Effect 2

ME2 made #1 in IGN's Top25 Xbox 360 games list.

Well deserved I'd say.

Agreed! Glad to see the game is still getting the recognition it deserves.

And the first game made #7 on their list. Also well-deserved.

ME2 deserves it, that's difficult to deny. It's a tribute to Bioware that they can make a game with a great story and great writing, while allowing the gamer to create their own character, and I hope that other game companies figure out how to do it as well as these guys can.

Absolutely. It's an instant classic. I'm looking forward to seeing if Deus Ex Human Revolution can rival it.
