    - If EDI was one of your two 'preferred' squadmembers, can she emerge from the Normandy in the 'Destroy' ending?
    Allegedly EDI can live in the Destroy ending, but I have yet to see proof on that.

    I still want a game set during the First Contact war.
    I know this is kinda late, but the First Contact war really isn't that interesting. Pretty much the turians find human explorers activating an inactive relay and attack them because activating an inactive relay is illegal in council space.

    From the ME wiki:

    Not knowing what enemy they faced - at first, some even wondered if these aliens might be Protheans - humanity sent probes into turian space, armed with nuclear fusion warheads to prevent the probes from providing dangerous insights into human technology. With humanity's resources stretched thin due to exploration efforts, the turians managed to defeat several scout and patrol fleets.
    Eventually the turians broke through to attack Shanxi, the closest human colony to the mass relay, and settled in for a protracted orbital siege. With the turians in a superior position, able to kill any human soldiers from above, the Shanxi defenders began to starve, unable to get food or supplies without risking civilian lives. Eventually General Williams, Ashley Williams' grandfather, was forced to surrender the Shanxi garrison.

    The turians - who were also suffering logistical problems, as they had to ship in all their food - believed they had defeated the bulk of the enemy forces. But they would be proven wrong when a month later Admiral Kastanie Drescher led the Second Fleet against Shanxi, catching the turians by surprise and evicting them from the planet. The turians and humans prepared for full-scale interplanetary war, drawing the notice of the rest of the galaxy.
    Fortunately, the Citadel Council then intervened to negotiate a peace and bring the war to an end.
    So pretty much a few space battles (not enough for a space combat game), and the siege of Shanxi which was pretty much an arial bombardment and the human defenders being starved into surrendering. Not really enough for a game or even a movie (imo).

    Quick couple of ending questions I'm still looking for clarification on:

    - Do the pre-rendered scenes showing the Hammer and Sword battles change depending in your EMS? I know they take losses regardless, but there seems to be a few things (like a Destroyer tearing apart a Turian dreadnought) that I've not seen in my playthroughs.

    - If EDI was one of your two 'preferred' squadmembers, can she emerge from the Normandy in the 'Destroy' ending?
    I did all of EDI's dialogue and her stuff regarding Joker, and at the end of the Destroy ending she came out of the Normandy with Joker and Liara.

    Wasn't it confirmed that the Catalyst was flat-out lying about some things?

    I think it was the ME3 official Twitter that said the whole "kill all synthetics" was a lie, when faced with the sheer contradiction of EDI and Shepard possibly still surviving.

    It really is funny when you have to write the plot around the developers being lazy.

    Then they'll make a sequel, throw away all your choices, and make all your old party members either disappear or look like they were beaten for an hour with the ugly stick.

    So you know how one of our chief complaints is that our choices have no consequences?

    Well I just found out that our precious Conrad    lives or dies in ME3    based on a minor, unrelated sidequest from the first game that I didn't even know existed

    Dammit Bioware, that's not what we meant

    I can't believe that I'm wishing some of our actions or lack thereof didn't have an effect in the third game

    Bioware confirmed on their twitter that the Star Kid was playing about a lot of things, but they didn't say which things specifically.

    The synthetic thing must be a lie, because if it was true, Shepard, EDI, the Geth, the Quarians, and a shitload of other people would be dead. He said even partially synthetic beings would be destroyed.

    I have yet to find Conrad on any playthrough... even though he was there on both saves I carried over from ME1 and 2. So I'm not sure what choice I made that killed him off or what.

    Im planning on possibly getting the Mass Effect 2: Digital Deluxe edition on Steam next time it goes on sale, would it be worth it?

    I just really want to own a Mass Effect on PC, not to mention if i buy the Deluxe edition il have owned every special edition of a ME game and I will actually have the Cerberus network.

    Welcome to the megathread. Snacks are to the right, sympathetic hugs are at table #2. Just don't eat the nuts in the bowls; they're for turians.
    I may or may not bring Tali along with me on occasion, is it safe to assume there will be some emergency induction ports lying around somewhere for her?

    Yes, there are some great mods for it like the HD textures from our very own JeanLuc (I believe) which really improve the game, presuming your PC can handle it.

    Oh Yes, I plan on getting those Texture packs for the Squad mates that JeanLuc did (Brilliant Job on them too)

    But I am referring to the Digital Deluxe edition itself, Is it worth paying extra for instead of getting the normal edition on Steam during a sale?

    I'm absolutely going to get ME2 on PC, I just want to know what edition to get.

    Well it has a good few extra things with it, like the soundtrack, digital art book and in-game armour and rifle, and based on previous sales there's only around a 2.50-5 gap between the two so yes I'd say its worth it.

    Alright Thanks, Il buy it next time its on sale.

    My only experience of ME2 on PC is the ME2 Demo on Steam. I gave it a go and tried to Mod it and there were times i failed:



    And there were times i succeeded:
