    Default Mass Effect 2

    I rarely geek out over movies, music, games, etc about to be released, but this is the exception.

    I am thrilled that the game will allow me to import my Shepard from ME1 and continue his/her adventures in the ME universe. Apparantly upwards of a hundred plot decisions you made in ME1 will flow through into ME2 and ME3 (it's slated to be a trilogy) in an overarching story. Classes are the same but have been highly reworked. Superior AI that varies between squadmates, enemy races, and difficulty level. And a risk that if you play through to a "bad" ending, that Shepard is dead and not able to import into ME3.

    Anyone else waiting not so patiently?

    Haha, I completely geeked out on Mass Effect. I read almost every single bit of news I could find, and devoured the entire ME wiki at one point.

    I would be waiting impatiently have it not been for my demanding classes this quarter. I want to start ME on its release date, but I know I'll get hooked in and forget about everything else too easily.

    Ahhh, the joy of being a Playstation elitist.

    In order to get all the good games, you have to buy all the consoles - which is actually isn't any worse than building a gaming computer (I know people who have put thousands of dollars into their computer)

    This could go into the psychology of Computer vs Console... hmmm

    I've got a high level Sentinel ready to go. I recently played through the game again to have all the plot choices I made fresh in my mind. The reworking of biotics looks fun - apparently Adepts will be deadly even without weapons, and Vanguards have their new "teleport to the enemy" move which gets them right into things.

    Wow, nice on the Sentinel! I know they were never really a popular choice but I always had either Kaiden, Garrus, or Wrex as my teammates because their CC and Debuff abilities are just superb on hard. But yeah, while I thought Biotics are nearly OP once you start maxing their powers [singularity and lift are just insane] they can start out rough. Definitely looking forward to the refinements.

    Just debating PC vs. 360. My PC can handle it but I loved the experience on the xbox for the first one, and I'm not liking the whole 2 discs thing unless I can install both to the HDD and play off one disc.

    Will be way cool but am not thrilled on being hooked to the box until I finish. Thats what sucks about being a P is it seems like all my focus gets sucked up into entertainment value.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Sentinels are, in my opinion, a fun but not very "strong" class. You give up the very best stuff like singularity, warp, hacking, and dampening, in addition to having the weakest weapon skills. But you get the batman utility belt to deal with every situation and that made them fun for me. Also I could pack a couple goon characters like wrex and ashley then go wreck things without having to babysit them.

    The PC version of most games are usually superior in my opinion. High res textures + mouse and keyboard control.
