    After the debacle that was MW2 for the PC, ME2 is my most anticipated upcoming game. The original ME was one of my favorite games of all time and I pray pray pray that despite being a console port, the PC version will have decent graphics and controls.

    The screenies I am seeing make this game look so good! I have to keep reminding myself that the first one is the only Bioware game I have not liked (that I've actually played and yes Dragon age is good I’m sure I am just anti-fantasy so that one doesn’t count).

    Eh I will Gamefly it out of curiosity (and yeah I have a weakness for sci-fi games). If it’s good great if not fuck it!

    Pistol is about the only fire power you get as an adept. But try to upgrade his adept abilities and a pistol wont be even needed. You can also ugrade to medium armor or low armor. I really cant remember since its been some time... but im going to replay ME one of these days. I got Dragon Age today (finally!! :D thank the lord :respect::respect:) so i hav pushed ME for the time being... lol

    And you wont need the AI even... when you reach about level 20+ Shepard is like untouchable :p

    and yes DA is pretty good. :cool:

    Yes well it will have decent graphics and is very well optimized and the controls will be pretty much the same like the first one. :D:D

    Why didnt you like the game?? :eek::confused:

    what? how can you not need the pistol? i'm playing veteran, and i most definitely need my pistol. powers don't actually deal much damage and the ones that do are too few. the powers also recharge too slowly for me to be able to rely solely on them.

    and i also need my AI allies... and i'm about level 40 now. on ilos finding the conduit.. game should be ending soon.

    i played garrus wrex in my first playthrough cus well.. they looked the most exotic looking. on my second playthrough i'm actually more hooked to the humans and even tali/liara. garrus's actually kind of a boring character, and wrex is well.. not as interesting anymore. ashley was great despite being human.

    annoying? haha i didn't find her annoying. i just thought humans would be boring. turns out garrus was the most boring character for me lol... he's handy though, i took him to saren last night. anyway, i'm done with it.. probably not playing anything till me2 comes out.

    haha tell me if you enjoy the fade. i absolutely hated those parts and the thought of going through them again is keeping me from playing dao again. that, and the repetitive monsters that you fight.. lack of variety there.

    well there's not much difference actually, except you get to bang her at the end. i'm assuming you can't do that with kaidan (never tried), so that's a good enough reason to keep ashley instead lol.

    I wonder if how you ended Mass Effect will have an effect on that. I mean, if you never dealt with Admiral Kohoko, he would still be alive meaning they wouldn't have to turn Anderson in't an admirable. There's also no way that ambassador would have allowed Anderson to become an admiral. Hmm...


    I second that. Kaiden is useful against Sovereign with his bioics (throw, lift, singularity). Ashley is useless against Sovereign. Ashley, therefore, is only good for lower difficulties, the romance achievement, and human solider ally achievement. Once you got those two achievements, there's really no reason to pick her--especially when I play as a soldier first. Remember, you can always bang Liara as long as you pick her up first (male or female).


    The only members that are required are...

    Morrigan, Oghren, and Allister/Loghain. You can ask Morrigan and Oghren to leave but you'll always be stuck with Allister or Loghain.

    ah well.. i basically killed saren singlehandedly in my last playthrough anyway.. my allies were just sitting there. and as an adept, all my stun powers were useless, i just pistoled him to death.

    i think the assassin he's referring to is zevran. actually i might consider playing through as human rogue again. i find the rogue to be a really fun character... more so than mages after awhile, although toward the end on hard mode it's all but impossible to complete without mages. it's just as hard to kill revenants without mages.

    fort, was the human rogue campaign start interesting?

    I too wonder how he is admiral. But i think anyways he will become admiral. Maybe in a different way if you take the ambassadors side in ME1

    Check update #6 (Page 4)

    Ashley is good for romance basically... I've banged Liara too many times.. now i need some human banging.. Not some blue p***y :p lol


    Oh thats cool. Its good to hear that i gotta a long way to go. :cool::D:D:D

    Btw any tips on how to get Morrigans approval up?

    just about the only way to do that's giving her gifts, or being an asshole in general.. which would upset your good characters. she gets upset at the mildest of things though.. so yeah..just pile jewellery on her. on my playthrough i didn't really bother with approval rating though.. just get enough to proceed with her sidequest. you'll know what i'm talking about when you get there.

    so far i actually prefer the simpler character relationship system of ME. daos' too complicated lol.
