Re: Mass Effect 2

A new patch on the PS3 version of the game has been released and it has info on trophies for the upcoming DLC, which is to be named "Arrival".

Very mild spoilers: http://thegamingliberty.com/index.ph...d-arrival-dlc/

Arrival, eh? The arrival of the Reapers or someone else?

You know the best thing about the PS3 version is that Overlord, Kasumi, and Lair of the Shadow Broker come WITH the game.

It's cheaper to buy the 360 version and the story-based DLC separately than to buy the PS3 version, though.

Yeah but I don't have to change disks out half way through.

So an extra few seconds is really worth that much to you?

That and not havinjg to replay ME1 if I don't feel like it thus sparing me from using the ever annoying Mako. Plus I don't have a 360 so to buy one to get the 360 version and the using a controller is way easier than the keyboard for the PC version, also the comic they used in place of ME1 was kind of cool.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Speaking of ME1, I just finished replaying it for the seventh or eighth time a few days ago.

And don't sweat it, by the way, I was just giving you a hard time. It'd be nice to not have to swap out discs, but I've already played ME2 six times and have all the DLC for it that I want, so it'd be silly of me to buy a brand new copy just for that. Plus I didn't really like the way it 'felt' when I played the PS3 demo.

Really how different is it from the 360 version?

Re: Mass Effect 2

It was mostly the sticks. Moving Shepard around and controlling the camera felt too loose and awkward, while doing the same on the 360 controller, it felt smoother and much more natural. But that could just be because I prefer the 360's controller over the PS3's in general.

The mako could climb the highest mountain!

Seriously, that thing could go anywhere.
