Picked up a copy of Mass Effect 2 today, without having played the original (some of the game elements don't agree with me, but I'll probably play ME1 at some point anyway).

So, does anyone have any tips for me, where ME2 is concerned?
If you want your squad mates to survive you need to do their loyalty missions and talk to them afterwards.

Incindiary ammo is great against armor and organics
Use disruptor ammor for shields or mechs
You can ignore the random missions but they are short and fun

Really the gameplay advice depends on what class you play as.

In lieu of actually playing ME1, there's always the Genesis DLC, although I'd recommend actually playing the first game personally.

I'm playing the soldier class, just going for a "meat and potatoes" approach, for my first playthrough.

I've just finished the mission, in which you recruit the hyperactive alien doctor. I've also just finished scanning the three (currently visible) planets for resources, in the starting sector.

Any suggestions where I should go from here?

If you've got the Doctor then you're at Omega - may as well go after Archangel while you're there.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Since you're a soldier just take cover and shoot. Soldiers get every weapon in ME2 so you have a range of shooting options. Shotgun for close combat, assault rifle for medium range and sniper for distance. Use adrenaline rush to line up head shots with the sniper.

As Angel4576 said do Archangel's mission next as its required anyway. The galaxy opens up a little after that I think. You don't have to deplete every planet of resources just get enough to fill your meter. You can find side quests on the planets by scanning when edi detects an anomaly.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I normally dislike Western games, but I thought I would try to broaden my horizons and give one a shot. I picked up the Witcher: Enhanced Edition last night after hearing quite a few good things about it. It's a WRPG that's supposed to be a sort of anti-Oblivion, so I'm very curious to try it out. That's my plans for the weekend.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Since we had no summer this year, I thought I'd get some vicarious African sun by re-playing Far Cry 2 and trying to get all the buddy missions and Jackal Tapes...

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I tried to get all the diamonds in my second play through. I got all the hidden suitcases but somehow screwed up an assassination mission and didn't get the payment for it. Apparently if you don't kill your target on the first try you don't get paid. Its the only single player achievement I have left.

I got all the diamonds first time round, but not all the tapes and buddies.

I think that with the exception of the Saints Row trilogy, it's my favourite 360 game by a long way. I hope FC3 will be as good.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've finally been broken down to join the consol gamer community and I picked up an X-Box. I grabbed the new Madden, Halo: Anniversary, and Halo 3 to go with it.

Got a free copy of Civ 5 so I'm playing that while I'm waiting for XCOM.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

just started playing star trek online. Last time i played it was at launch, and it was HORRIBLE. Worst launch i've ever seen.

The game has come a long way, it's actually quite fun now. Flawed but still fun. And you can't beat the price: Free!

Bad Piggies! Okay, Angry Birds (especially Angry Birds Space) got me with physics. Now we have physics *and* engineering?! It's like catnip for rocket scientists! (So says this particular aerospace engineer.)

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've still got to get around to finishing Black Mesa. In the meantime, I thought I'd give the Doctor Who adventure games a go and I'm also in the mood to try one of the Dredd games again.

There's also one of the Tomb Raider games I'm slightly stuck on so may try that again tomorrow. It's just figuring out how to get to where I need to go.
