    So I'm two hours in. A little late I guess for first impressions since it's been out about a month, but if anyone cares to discuss:

    I really like the combat, nothing to complain about at all besides accidentally rolling into walls while trying to interact with stuff. What I don't like though is that there have been zero hacking opportunities so far that I've caught and there are barely any places where I can choose my dialogue. It's odd just watching Shepard be all angry and snarky when normally there's an option to be a little more civil or cooperative, or even an option to be angrier and more of a badass. I'm used to there being more people to talk to in an area or having one or two reputation dialogue trees mixed with 4 or more dialogue wheels per conversation. This time I'm just watching.

    Is it going to be like this for most of the game? Or do conversations get more Mass Effect-y later?

    If anyone has trouble getting into the game and has a error, I have this problem too. Gen Machine has a solution.

    Just load up the game and it'll create a new file for saves, then copy and paste back the files into the folder, cheers.

    It worked for him, hopefully it'll work for anyone else.

    Edit: Oh lawd, it didn't. I'll do a repair install.

    Something tells me he didn't play the first two games.
    I played ME2, not the first one though. I was satisfied with the ending of the story. Cycle got wiped but now reapers are gone so next cycle can do w/e

    I'm curious.

    Who here still wants completely redone endings?

    And Who is happy with the plans for the extended cut providing clarity, closure and making it personal?

    So. Rainbow for new ending and Artistic for extended cut.

    First time playing the multiplayer, and I fucking hate it (the gameplay itself is alright, but it's the players). Everybody's a cunt and sees 'level 1' and kicks you immediately.

    And then for the few rounds I HAVE played where my fellow players have been decent enough to let me join a match with them (despite a level gap) my fucking connection has dropped out, and I've gotten NOTHING for the match.

    Fuck you people, and fuck you Australian internet connections!

    I get that sometimes, but the best thing to make people like you and not kick you in games is revive them, and not leave a man or woman or turian or krogan etc behind.

    I only play due to getting more endings, then the one. Maybe the default ending is where you get to blow up the thing and you get pwned, whether you die or not.

    I'd be happy to host a few rounds sometime if you want to join, I'm in Australia and my friends play fairly often.

    How long are you gonna do it for?

    I'll move my stream up a couple of hours and stream Alan Wake in that time if that helps suit you. By all means don't hold it off because of me.

    A few decent people let me play with them despite being 13 levels below the next minimum level.

    Got to level 6 in one round, then level 10 in a second!

    I just started ME2 (playing through series again) and I find that I enjoy the combat less than ME1. All the weapons feel pretty shitty apart from a few select ones (Mattock which is OP, Locust which is OP, Widow, Geth plasma shotgun which is OP). Especially the Avenger is terrible.

    After ME3 it feels really weird. Everything is clunky, and it feels heavy.

    Assault rifle. That Mattock is fucking deadly at close range, fits the Vanguard play style quite well.

    Y'know, concerning Legion, it kinda sucks that you couldn't hug it when it sacrificed itself to give sentience to the other geth. I mean, it looked all over the galaxy for you, joined you on your mission to defeat the Collectors, was generally a helpful bro, and now it's become a martyr for it's entire people.

    There shoulda been a Paragon interrupt whereby Shepard hugged Legion and thanked him for everything.

    Also, concerning my earlier "Assume Direct Control" ending, i've two more "special endings" to formulate; one being "Song of the Stars" and the other being "Space Battleship Citadel". I think i'll work with "Song of the Stars" first, since i've already laid down the groundwork somewhat for "Space Battleship Citadel".

    A possible ending, maybe; certainly more beneficial for everyone earthbound, instead of Shepard becoming Space Ahab.

    Nice! On a very related note, I noticed the other day that Major Coats (Big Ben Sniper) is voiced by the VA who did MaleHawke. Go figure.

    Guys, may I ask you for a favor? I want to finish one my of character's story. The thing is I started playing as her in the pirated version (which included the "From Ashes" DLC), so when my legal copy finally arrived, I couldn't continue in the story. And no, I'm not going to reinstall the pirated one.

    Ellen Shepard; Infiltrator; I kept making mostly Renegade choices; Kaiden, Tali, Wrex are dead;
    Closer info regarding my decisions: http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/k...nho/elshep.jpg


    Here's the download link:
    - http://www.sendspace.com/file/795s3a
    And please, make some screenshots during your gameplay (if anyone decides to accept this challenge)
    I'd be really grateful if someone finished her story..

    This is why we don't go charging into a group. Remember, this is how a gentleman plays ManGuard.


    This is for ME2, but the techniques are important.

    The easy credits on Gold is against Geth on Firebase White (Noveria). Make sure you have Quarian Inf. and Salarian Engies on your team, hang out in the bottom floor of the building, behind the computers there, the ones furthest from the landing zone. Spam decoy and Sabotage. Tada! 70 000 credits!
