Having finished ME 2 twice and currently playing it again on Insanity, I feel it offers challenge and story enough to make it worth the money. Are there things I have quips with? Yeah, but that pretty much goes for all games. Most folks who enjoyed the first like the sequel, if that's any indication.

Try going to the Friendly Arm Inn, then exit off the map via the western border. The woods should start to appear if you've finished all the quests correctly. ;)

I don't expect my suggestion will fly with too many folks here, but frankly, we have game forums that haven't been posted in for years . I'm all for condensing those down into one subforum because it's just clutter at this stage. Keep the "big names" and forums for games recently introduced. I'm not...

Ladies, ladies! I'm all for the discussion, but I feel the conversation is moving out of the "Quality of DA" and into the "Arguing Semantics of Each Others' Posts" area. Maybe I'm wrong. Regardless, both sides have expressed their opinions clearly. The onset of "but you said blah blah blah first" is...

I'm not especially picky on the size. Just pointing out that pretty much every community gathering site I use goes by 100x100 as standard, and it's the size most icons are made in. I don't think 75x75 or less will be detrimental, really. As for the post farming, I think our community has died out to...

Infiltrator is my favorite class, but I attempted to bring my Infiltrator as well as a Sentinel through Insanity mode. Actually, I started them on Insanity+, having re-imported both characters after playing ME2 with each once already. Even with all the best skills capped out from the get-go, Infiltr...

1000 posts seems pretty fair to me. Sounds kind of like an initiation rite though... does this mean all of us "exalted ones" get to haze and generally abuse fledgling members? Don't we do that anyway? Speaking from a graphic point of view, 100x100 avatars are far more prevalent and are the most com...

Mechanics of Suicide Mission Explained (Spoilers)

Hey, guys. I was poking around on the Mass Effect livejournal comm, and one of the contributors offered up this from the official boards. I thought that some of you guys might be interested.

I imported a character with a maxed our paragon bar in Mass 1. On the Xbox so the best I can give ya is that I got half of the first bar in my paragon morality as soon as I started. in essence, it's a pretty insignificant jump start. ;)

My personal favorite is the Renegade prompt on Tuchanka while you're doing Grunt's loyalty mission. My Shepard had earlier watched Wrex knock another krogan into line by headbutting him. Later, when that same krogan started getting uppity at Shepard, my dainty little femme commander just leans back ...

If what you're looking for is old school BioWare games, yeah, you're setting yourself up for disappointment. The company itself is in a completely different state than it was when Baldur's Gate 2 was made. Even this last attempt to get back to the golden age via the "spiritual successor" Dragon Age ...

Given that the thread is marked as spoilers, and the title is a clear indicator that the topic is going to ruin the ending for those unaware, I think it's okay you not hide the text.

Mass 2, to me, was fun to play. I'm a fan of the franchise, I feel like the in-game universe is "growing up" into an actual sci-fi setting instead of just ripping elements from "those who came before", and I think BioWare listened and corrected a lot of the original issues. A lot of my initial fears...

You can choose a new class and redo your face even if you're importing an old Shepard. It's normal. ;) Although I don't get how, say, a soldier can all of a sudden develop biotic powers.

I had it, but I never used. When it came down to having one - maybe two - shots for a mission or having 20 shots with a standard missile launcher, it's a no-brainer for me. You never know what's waiting for you in the next room, and there's nothing quite like the feeling of, "Crap, I'm really screwe...

You gain certain bonuses based on benchmarks you hit in the first game. I believe if you had something like 100,000 credits or whatever earned you a good chunk of cash to start with in the second game. You also start at level 5, are given a percentage of various resources to start with (which is mod...
