Mass Effect 2: More waxing goddamn nostalgic.

The survival of the hacker is dependent on their skills, loyalty *and* likewise those of the person you pick to lead the second Fire Team. Pick the right person for the Fire Team and they'll order supressing fire at the door while the hacker works to close it. Pick the wrong one, like the Baby Krogan or the Selfish Mercenary Loner Who's Spent 20 Years Caring Only About His Revenge And Is The Sole Survivor In Nearly All His Missions...well, bad things will happen.

Spoiler below maybe.

I chose Miranda as Fire Team Leader and Tali as hacker. Tali died at the door.

Not at the moment. It has one new character, one very short, but nostalgic, mission and a shotgun and piece of armour. It might be worth it at some point in the future, depending on what they release.

Thanks.

Thought that might be the case.

If I can pick it up on the cheap then I may invest earlier.

About to start the game now, good times ahead I think.

Bob, one (or possibly both of them)

were not loyal then. Both Tali'Zorah and Miranda's loyalty can be lost once you complete both theirs and Legion and Jack's missions (and vice versa) - whoever you side against requires a massive P/R check afterwards to get them back onside if you don't manage to shut them all up.

Edit - HAHAHAHAHA, Vemsie is so fucked. I hope he records himself playing it and posts it later.

Betcha it was

Zaeed's

fault. It's always

Zaeed's

fault.

Actually, with me it was bloody

Samara's

fault. I mean, she's supposed to be wise, and has

centuries of experience

... but I should have realised she was someone used to working alone. And, in fact, is clearly a fucking lunatic.

Oooh, post the code, Rach.

Pretty damn good likeness here :)post-12619-1266508656.jpg

Been slamming through the intro mission with her on Engineer class on Hardcore - the 'combat drone' power rocks...

[x360] Just start a new char story, scroll down and enter the code at the bottom of the custom face screen just before the Lazarus cutscene.

Have just bought this 2nd hand for £22. The Cerberus network code has been used, is it worth 1200 points?

Cheers.

So far not even a tiny little bit (especially as that would raise the price to that of a new copy anyway). You miss out on a squad member (but not one that's fully voiced anyway) and a nice, but ultimately pointless Mass Effect 1 flashbacky mission.

Later it might be worth it but you won't be too upset with your first playthrough without those things.

There is also a nice dlc shotgun and armour. But I agree, don't splash out for the network until there is something really essential on there or something you really want

I don't get why people say this. Zaeed has loads to say. You can't engage him in full conversations but he's got a huge fund of monologues about his past adventures and he also comments on every other squad member and the missions you've just done, and he's got the full range of interjections and the like when you take him on a mission.

Yeah, I've only just figured that out. When I first visited him, I got him to comment on his trophies but selecting him only prompted the phrase, "Shepard! I was just waxing goddamn nostalgic." On subsequent visits, he'd say the exact same thing so I assumed he had nothing more to talk about. It turns out you have to select him once more after that to make him chat about all the other stuff you mentioned. :)

Bob Hoskins would never get almost killed by a fucking Hanar.

By the way, have any of the rest of you been keeping up with the Cerberus Network updates? There's been a fun little story each day about a new race to have found a relay, the Raloi. Gifts and welcoming messages have been sent to them, ambassadors deployed, Krogans committing cultural faux pas, you name it. Personally, I just like the idea of these poor, terrified little guys joining the community just in time to find out there's a race of all powerful, near eternal superbastards on their way to fuck up anyone with interstellar travel.

"If only we'd waited a few more years before using that fucking relay..."

I never realised that, so I never used Zaaed.

At the end I made him

escort the crew back to the Normandy

because I didn't even realise he was there. I thought he was like human beige.

Just got Archangel and Mordin on my Vanguard Insanity run, really enjoyed the part where you have to close the shutters it was really intense.

It's going to take a bit of getting used to though considering I almost always play the straight non magic classes like a Warrior in a fantasy game or a Soldier as the case is here, still unsure when I should be using the charge and when I shouldn't. I'm making a few mistakes but getting better with it as time goes on.

Just got to the the Citadel and when Captain Bailey asked about my my current state of affairs I said I''d like the system to keep the same status for me and he said

"Fine by me you're a god damn hero, it's not like you're gonna smuggle weapons in right!!"

He didn't say it to me on my first playthough on my Paragon guy but it made me smile on my renegade female when I remembered smuggling weapons for the Hannar on Novaria in the first game, I love the tiny little details.

Garrus recruited. Didn't even take me that long. :lol:

Awesome battle though, one of the best I played in ages. On Normal I could really hang back with my Vanguard, but this time I had to carefully position myself for the Charge and make sure that the timing was right. So cool when it works. :D

That big Krogan at the end with his regenerating shield? Heavy charge and Firestorm took him out quite easily. Even managed to make him fly over the ledge by charging into him. I can't stress how good Firestorm is for a Vanguard by the way. It has tremendous stopping power and eats through armor like it's nothing.

This game :)

Awesome going, sir! It really does shine and make you think on the higher settings, doesn't it? Just a pity about those wretched ball-breaking spikes in a couple of places but I am going to give Insanity a proper go of it soon.

In other news, there's a petition on the Bioware board for this to be included in Mass Effect 3. Anyone else dumb enough to save the Council like I was must surely agree it simply must happen:

Not that I'm bitter or anything.

Turian prick.
