^ Speaking of "badass," I have just one name for you: Liara. Just finished "Lair" a little while ago, and loved it. Absolute blast all the way through, and lots of nice little things you get to interact with following the battle against the Broker.

I don't understand it either, but that's partly because if I was to roleplay myself into Mass Effect, I'd be too lazy/scared to go on any of the missions. But my brother says that he played through the game twice, and both times he played as himself, which means that he probably made the same decisions.

When I created my first character, I intentionally made him black because I wanted him to look nothing like me, then I hit onto the idea of making him look a bit like Sisko. Then I named him Benedict, because I thought that would be mildly humorous. The second time I played through, I made a female character intended to be completely unlike Benedict, that way I could make the opposite decisions to see how they played out.
I did actually try making Shepard a black guy in an ME1 play-through but for some reason it felt weird with that same voice and aborted that game before the first mission was through. Perhaps stubbly potato-head-shep had imprinted itself in my memory so I couldn't associate that voice with anything else.

Didn't have the same problem with femshep though for some reason.

I have a pretty diverse set of Shepards, actually. My Paragon male is the default face, my Paragon female is a Latina, my Renegade female is Asian, and my Renegade male is black. Meer and Hale's voices sounded fine in each iteration.

Re: Mass Effect 2

So the new DLC, is it playable within the game or do you have to have beaten the Collector Mission before it unlocks?

Re: Mass Effect 2

I haven't gotten that far since I've started a fresh Shepard for the DLC, but the ME wiki has this to say:
The DLC can be played during the game or after the suicide mission, but the dialogue is "weighted heavily toward the assumption that the player had already completed it".

Re: Mass Effect 2

A Shepard quote from Lair of the Shadow Broker (while waiting for Liara to hack a locked door): "Remember in the old days, when you could just slap Omnigel on everything?"



I love it when BioWare puts in these small ME1 references. I love LotSB.

Another Shepard quote (while fighting off the waves of mercs interfering with above lengthy hacking process):

LIARA: "Their attacks are disorganized. They would be more effective if they attacked all at once."
SHEPARD (annoyed): "Please don't give the mercs ideas."

Re: Mass Effect 2

^ And another one I LOLled at:

Shepard: "What weapons does this thing have?"
Liara: "... It's a taxi cab. It has a fare meter."

Come to think of it, the whole background conversation during that section of the game was quite hilarious.

LotSB is the best DLC I've played through so far. I really enjoyed it.

When I get some time, I might just have to dust off ME2 for another go around. I might actual find an ME1 save to play to the end where I romance Liara first.

I didn't pay much attention to the pre-release stuff for ME1 so I never associated Mark Meer's voice with the default character so, in my mind, I think of Benedict Shepard whenever I hear it.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Currently reloading the Lair DLC (Last nights attempt went a little pear shaped).

I've heard it's quite funny in parts

Re: Mass Effect 2

Finished it and it was very good if not a little shorter than I expected but the ending changes everything . I wonder how are Bioware planning to transfer the changes in the universe over to ME 3 to those who don't buy the DLC's ? intended to bridge the gap to ME 3.



Cannot wait for the next DLC.
