    I think it's going to be an above average space RPG, I'm not particularly excited about it as what the original left for clues on the sequel gave me the impression it would be taken out of proportion. It leaves the possibility for a positive surprise, though, and I'm definitely going to buy it once it's on sale- I don't buy games at full price unless I absolutely have to have it (which is the case for FFXIII for instance). They've got a decent concept, and I hope they try to keep it original and implement something new in each instalment, or just write one damn good story - truth be told, I wasn't that much impressed with the story in the original, I just liked the game-play as well as Shepard and Saren. I managed to create a Shepard very much like myself, and it felt good to have that style work out in the end - although I didn't like the outcome of my last decision, SPOILERALERT (skip the rest of this post if you haven't played through Mass Effect, the original) humans becoming the rulers of the universe doesn't quite appeal to me, and although I would probably leave the council unguarded, I would have preferred an option to reinstall a multi-cultural council yet again.

    You can actually kill the council and still find a multi-racial council.


    But then again, I guess you already made the decision.

    Damnit, still gotta do Virmire, Ilos and side missions in Mass Effect 1! Guess I better pick up the pace. Anyways I pre-ordered the Mass Effect 2 Deluxe Edition from Steam.

    It should be fun, especially more so now that more of your team is made up of raving lunatics.

    LOL.

    But to the point- the first five seconds of Mass Effect 2 made me piss myself, with that whole "Normandy being blown to bits" thing. And when I went to Omega, and recruited Garrus? Epic. Then I decided it was the last straw! I will hold myself back from playing the game until I finish my re-run of Mass Effect 1 for my import savegame, because the default Shepard's story is too renegade for me.

    By the way, just in case you guys didn't know about this: a Mass Effect savegame repository, with all sorts of different Shepards. Very useful.

    While you're playing your ancient ME 1 I'm kicking it real, already halfway throught, in ME 2 with a full Paragon save from ME 1.

    Ya well I just beat it for the 3rd time and no don't judge me. It was a very good game more RPG then combat game but it still good. The story I kinda didn't like since you could have explained it easily in like 30 min now for thoughts with spoilers.

    Spoilers
    The ending where you see the human reaper was sad because what was the point of it a better stronger machine a leader? It left to much out and the collectors being messed up protheans was pretty awesome I didn't see that coming at all.I also didn't like that you had very little conversation with your old team It made me sad and that the ship upgrades were only needed for the suicide mission which I didn't like. Thought playing it on the 2nd time it's quite awesome to see Shepperd die.Ill post later if I get bored about this subject.

    I haven't had much time to play the game yet.
    I've recruited some companions and such and I must say, I love it.
    It's freaking epic this far anyway!

    Love to here that!
    And yes, I would love to talk about the game once I'm done :>
