So I finally had a chance to try a section of the multiplayer and had a good time. It was one of the wave style matches. I was the lowest ranked person in there but had fun none the less. I will have to try it out some more this weekend.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

ME1:
Save Wrex (United Krogans = awesome)
Save Racni Queen (Rachni Queen = ally)
Allow Thorian lady to live (Give insight into indoctrination?)
Save the Council (Humans will need other races ASAP in ME3)
Insert Udina on Council (Can do better diplomatically)

ME2:
Destroy Collector Base (Can't trust Cerberus)
Everyone survives suicide mission (Need people to say hi to in ME3)
Kill Zaeed's mortal enemy (Bad guy)
Remain as a Spectre (Council recognition in ME3)
Save the genophage (More Krogan = More Win)
Destroy the geth (Can't trust them, think Reapers are Gods)
Allow Tali's exile (Need Tali with Shepard, not Migrant Fleet)


Others to suggest? Running low on time, will return and edit later.

I might suggest:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Spoiler  
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Letting Legion use the virus to convert the "Heretics." Legion's Geth oppose the heretics and Reapers. Might make for a number of allies.


Although I get what you're saying, it's a tough call on that one.

I have never failed. I just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

Legion was an awesome character in ME2, I wish they gave a bit more "context" dialog in missions.

Kinda reminds me of HK-47 if anyone remembers him from KOTOR, one of my favorite characters

Man it stinks getting old. I remember playing both ME1 and 2 but dang sure cannot remember charactors, missions etc. I surely do not remember the choices I made, guess I will find out when the game drops.

Does anyone have a feeling for whether any class is over-powered or under-powered in terms of single player play?

Finished ME1 this morning. 24 hours to do all major story missions plus *most* of the sidemissions. Would've finished last night if it wasn't for the xbox freezing two times and getting stuck in the Mako and losing 45 minutes of gameplay. I think the autosave is what I'm looking forward to most for ME2.

Also, with ME3 launching Tuesday, it might be a good idea to learn how the spoiler function works. It's really easy - you just need two blocks around what you are going to post. These blocks are defined with brackets [] around the word "spoiler". It works like this:

spoiler

Enter what you want to have hidden here.

/spoiler

Done. Again, remember that you need to have brackets around spoiler and /spoiler. I don't because otherwise you wouldn't see the code. This will hopefully help avoid any moments.

Load up ME2 game and check the main menu pair of terminals. The right terminal used to display Daily News in ME before Bioware shut it down a year later.

The right terminal has come back to live again with hints something is going on. (Suggesting Reapers invasion has started).

Here's the funny part. On PS3, the right terminal screen has always been closed since the game came out because Bioware already shut down the Daily News. The right terminal screen is still closed. Maybe it's only a dumb/fake terminal. So, PS3 gamers aren't receiving early warning on the Reapers invasion.

Some comic artist should create a comic on X360 and PS3 comparison. The comic should say like: (left frame): X360 Shepard and Alliance are gearing up to start fighting the Reapers invasion after received early warning and more lives are saved. (right frame): PS3 Shepard and Alliance are still sitting around debating over the politics on what Shepard did in ME2. Next frame: Reapers ships already landed and destroying everything. Shepard has to try to get ready and lot of lives are lost. I think this would be cool showing the early warning news is important to how ME3 story starts.

I know Amazon is offering $10 in credit plus an in game item. I want to say that Best Buy is offering $20 but don't quote me on that.

For pre-order ME3 deals, Amazon $10 credit is regular edition and a weapon DLC. Best Buy is $10 or $20 gift card depending if you have unlock gamer account. Also same weapon DLC. K-mart gives ME3 free if you buy X360 4GB with Kinect or $20 gamer coupon if you buy the game. If you buy enough games from K-mart, it's the best deal.

So I went back to my first character and did find that he was only level 26 when I finished the game. However, he's at 29 after finishing the Kasumi and firewalker DLC, and a couple side missions, and I expect him to hit 30 with Shadowbroker or Arrival.

I hit 30 last night without Kasumi, but I did have to do a few random anomaly missions to get it. I was at 26 after doing the main quest as well.

I finished the Arrival DLC this weekend in anticipation of ME3 but only reached Level 29. I've also finished the Overlord and Shadow Broker DLC. Guess I'll have to seek out a couple of side missions to get that last level for the achievement.

I just cracked 30 while doing the Overlord missions. I still need to wrap up Shadow Broker and The Arrival before starting Mass Effect 3. It looks like I may not start it before the weekend.

I'm only basing this off the Demo single player and multiplayer experience.

I would say a stasis explosion is the single most powerful thing I have seen. Get Liara and then use another biotic power to detonate, preferably throw. Also tricked out combat drones setup to chain stun are pretty groovy as well. Two of those on your team would give the opposing AI fits. Basically CC trumps huge damage, how you want to pull that off is up to you.


I did manage to unlock the asari adept and I changed my mind how I would build her. I would go with the standard 6-6-6-6 build and don't put anything into warp. I thought warp would have more effect on weakening an Atlas mech but throw staggers it pretty well and throwing throw bolts at it every second seems to weaken it just as much as hitting it with warp. I also thought infecting it with warp would set up biotic explosions but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Just did Operaion Overlord. Totally forgot this even existed, let alone that I had bought it! It was great, but that means I still have to do Shadow Broker tomorrow before I can start ME3

I'm 50% through ME2, so I'll be finishing that tomorrow, possibly even Wednesday. I'm OK with that - with the way the video game industry is going, I don't mind waiting a day to make sure it's worth opening

With video games unlike movies, the longer you wait, the less buggy it becomes as all games are shipped with bugs. Just don't understand why games must be played on day 1.

I'm surprised there is no one here telling us about their midnight launch purchase. ANyway, Ars has their review up:

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/review...3-reviewed.ars

In short, on par with Mass Effect 2's quality level. It's about what can be expected from Mass Effect at this point. Not shockingly improved, but certainly not a disappointment.

My copy shows up from Amazon today.
