Re: Mass Effect 2

Just finished LotSB. It was fantastic! Love the little references to the new omnigel proof locks and the taxi being better than the Mako.
The ending was nice too and yes, my femshep got her blue squeeze back.

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.
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.
I didn't either; indeed I only bought ME1 about a year ago when it was going for just a few quid on steam. I think the problem in this instance stems from my just using the default face in my first maleshep playthrough (couldn't be arsed to muck about much.) Once I finished that play-through I think the voice and face were pretty much engrained.
Actually, it also feels a little weird when I see videos of other people's femsheps too. I think, in my head at least, this will always be the face I associate with that voice.
Hell, just while play ME2 it took me a while to get used to her not having that scar anymore (I tend to think of it as a battle wound she got on Akuze.) I miss that scar...

I was never a huge Liara fan, but LotSB was awesome.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Hrm, with the ending of the DLC, doesn't that imply that she's not going to be a party member in ME3?

One of the developers confirmed via Twitter "ongoing benefits" of that outcome. I also am looking forward to keeping an eye on it.

That was my impression as well, but I hope BioWare finds a story reason to work around it. I'd really like to have Liara on my team again in ME3, especially now that she and my Shepard are together again (sorry, Miss Lawson and low-cut jumpsuit).

Re: Mass Effect 2

Ha ha, I liked when the Shadow Broker had the shield so Shepard says, "Then we do this the hard way" and you have to run up and punch him. There were some great cut scenes during the final fight.

I also liked that they included a level where you have to walk on the exterior of the Shadow Broker's ship. It reminded me of the Citadel Tower level from ME1.

Making the "evil" Asari Specter a Vanguard was a great idea too. She was biotic charging all over the place. Cool.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Has Bioware by any chance announced how many DLC they intend to release for ME2?

Personally, I think she'd be of more use in her current position than she would be running around with Shepard again.

Re: Mass Effect 2

^As much as I'd like to have had Liara around again as a squad member in ME2, it's true that her talents are wasted in a gunfight. Same goes for Tali really...which is and odd thought really. I mean how many other video games can make you actually care about the lives and careers of it's characters? That's just bizarre.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Another thing I really, really enjoyed was the "Dossiers" console. I think I spent over an hour just reading through all of them.

Gotta love the World of Fantasy references BioWare keeps making

Re: Mass Effect 2

^Yeah there's some pretty weird stuff in there. Off the top of by head, you learn a little too much about Tali's "special time", that Miranda is trying (unsuccessfully) to get pregnant with the aid of a dating service, that Grunt has developed an interest in Hemingway, that Samara used to be a clothes horse and a dancer, Jack fancies herself a poet and is into online poker and keeps getting banned for flaming, Garrus has a sick mother and a sibling back home, Mordin like amateur dramatics (but we knes that already), Kasumi has a crush on Jacob, and that Legion is an avid FPS gamer ("N7 Code of Honor: Medal of Duty") and is so good he keeps getting accused of hax.

The video logs also have some interesting details. Aside from Liara's father it also has Anderson meeting secretly with someone in a Cerberus uniform on the presidium and that reporter getting punched by someone else. Entertaining stuff!

I wonder what the Twitter comment was about? I wonder if there some hidden info buried deep somewhere in the network, have to keep looking I guess.

Well, there is the console that allows you to come back regularly and collect Credits, tech and resources.
