It let me download the content from the website and install it, but I can't access it when I get in game. Installing the downloader got me a little farther. Instead of the game just hanging at please wait this time a box came up telling me it couldn't connect.

It won't accept my CD key for the EA downloader activation either. Seriously all this copy protection and DLC stuff can go fuck itself. I'm actually regretting buying the game instead of torrenting it and it's not because I had to pay 40 bucks.

And I thought Bioware said they fixed it? EA is just being EA I guess. I hope you aren't the only one having problems with it and EA is forced to change their practices (like they did with Mass Effect--oh the iorny).

It's not as bad as it was, but I've had to validate/register the game in about 4 different places (three times online and once while installing it) and it still doesn't work like it's supposed to.

I found it pretty amazing that the full torrent was out on some popular sites about 2 weeks prior to the release date.

Any way, I bought ME1 on steam a while ago and I am going through my 2nd time and then I will get this game :). I love bioware, mass effect is a great game but I don't like it as much as dragon age:respect:

Just went to play this on steam, preloaded it a couple days ago. its unlocking game files which is taking time.

My windows hard drive gadget says my HD is goin nuts for read and write. as much as 20MB/s read and 40MB/s write. I may have that reversed. just a up and down arrow as symbols

DLC is working now. It was a problem with their servers.

Got it, started playing it, HOLY AMAZING! Got the DLC stuff too (yay 2 extra armor's!!) I'm on the third level. Imported my ME1 guy. Not sure I like the character upgrade system as much as the first, but I like the hacking much more. I like the two different kinds. And Miranda is a hottie! Who the hell does her voice?

Can't wait to play again after work!

I just started playing ME1 last night, no hassles so far other than it would crash on save sometimes and the shadows on the faces kind of bother me (it flickers a lot). This looks like a long game. lol, it will probably take me a month to finish.

Miranda Lawson is modeled after Yvonne Strahovski, who also voiced her character.

Speaking of in-game characters modeled after real people - The one thing I want in ME3 is a character modeled after Summer Glau :)

I'm a few hours into it so far. I'm loving it though I wish I knew how to get my assault rifle back. I ran out of ammo on the Archangel mission and my assault rifle completely disappeared. It doesn't show it as a usable weapon anymore and I can't seem to find where I can get it back.

They did that to make weapons like assault rifles more useful and the soldier class has a serious advantage with having lots of ammo.

How they think taking installed in the PC Mass Effect for 2 years after 2 new ( Vista/7) operating systems and changes in the socket. I no longer have 'saves the first to influence the history of the second

such a confusing sentence. Are you talking about saves carried over?

Yes they said that the choices we have made in the first change the history of the second chapter, but only if you have the saves of the first mass effect.

A shot in the dark: get ammo for it?
Heh, I wish it was that simple. I went to go grab more ammo and I couldn't pick up anymore because the rest of my weapons were full. When the other weapons run out of ammo, I can still switch to them, I just can't use them. The assault rifle is completely missing from my inventory. I went to the weapons locker and that didn't restore it either. My only hope is to find an improved version of it and hope that it shows up in my inventory.
