    I kited those giant floating things that shoot lasers at you, mostly because my guys would always die if I didn't draw their attention.

    Keep in mind that I stupidly started the game on Insanity on my very first playthrough, because I assumed I had as many options as I did in ME1... boy did Horizon prove me wrong (although, because of enemy scaling, playing a New Game+ on Insanity actually makes the game harder, so it worked out in the end). I was extremely lucky that I was playing the class with the power armor, because my teammates were essentially useless throughout the entire mission (whoever decided that there should be a limit on omnigel when the friendly AI is so bad must be shot :p).

    By the time I finished the game, I didn't feel like I figured out how to play the game - it was more like I figured out how to trick the game into letting me win... and that just isn't a very satisfying experience.

    Actually I saw a walkthrough of ME 2 recently and It looks like after you do the mission where you get Legion you have enough time to do his loyaly mission plus another mission before you have to go through the Omega IV relay.

    Tali: "Oh, Legion! That was amazing. Was it good for you?"
    Legion: "We are still building consensus."

    If the quarians are at all similar to humans, we all know what the geth were really used for.

    Manual labor? Is that what they're calling it these days?

    ^ As do I. Despite some of her... character traits, I still really liked Ash in ME1.

    ^Yeah, since she could've died in ME1, if they were gonna do that, it would have to be possible for Kaiden and Ashley. Some major alliance operation.

    The trailer seems to imply that none of the other characters will speak, just like the other DLC. Figures.

    "Assume control of THIS!"
    - SPCTRE, five minutes ago. ;)

    Finished the Insanity playthrough in Vanilla gear, what a ride! Wouldn't have thought max difficulty would improve the combat that much, fun-wise. Highly recommendable.

    I tend to not bother with the high difficulty levels as in my experience all they doo is add more enemies and/or make them more of a chore to kill. I'm curious though, exactly what difference does the "insanity" setting actually make to the game?

    Just watched the Shadow Broker trailer; looks like we finally get to fly one of those skycar things, fun! Mind you, between this and Firewalker I can't help but wonder if Bioware are using the ME2 DLC to test or iron out gameplay elements for their Star Wars MMO next year. From what I gather from Gaimtrailers.com they announced a very similar looking space combat system for 'Old Republic' about the same time this trailer hit.

    ...Oh and my femshep is totally looking forward to *ahem* "seeing" Liara again. ;)
