[QUOTE=Jackald;34823993]Option 1: Character is vitally important to plot in which case the day 1 dlc is bullshit. Option 2: The character isn't important to the plot when the lore states they should be INCREDIBLY GROUNDBREAKINGLY IMPORTANT, and are just tossed aside like some gun for fucking hire. There's no way out of this. Bioware fucked up (probably due to EA being dicks but still)[/QUOTE] Actually there is a way out of this: if the squadmember is actually an important part of the story and included in the game without the DLC, but just isn't someone you can recruit for your squad like this. The DLC then would allow you to do a mission for them to make them a squad member. Still a dick move, but better than the current thought that it's a plot critical element of the game you have to buy as DLC, or making such a plot critical revelation not matter at all by making it just side-DLC.
Am I the only one concerned about that client side crate thing in the main game?

Anyone know if it's possible to edit a file in Mass Effect 2 to make a planet / planets have unlimited resources for probing and give you all 4 when you launch one? I've thought of making a super motherlode planet for a while but I don't know if it's possible.

Use ME2 Mod Manager with [url=http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7211550/MassEffect/ME2ModManagerFiles/RandomMods.me2mod]this file here[/url] and you're set.
Anyone know of a save editor which lets me edit Mass Effect 2 events? The gibbed's one only allows editing of events from the first one. I only have one playthrough on my PC (ugh like 6 on my xbox but I really don't want to buy two copies) and I want to only change that I save the collector base, and that I romance Miranda.
I just heard the [sp]Protheans[/sp] voice for the first time. I can't possibly have a conversation without laughing.
[QUOTE=Sardonus;34827409]I just heard the [sp]Protheans[/sp] voice for the first time.

I was pleasantly surprised to hear it wasn't laughable. It hardly sounds Jamaican like so many people say.

I live across the country from both US ones. Florida :<
Hopin it goes toward New Jersey Fun little promo though, even if I don't win
No love for Australia but still sounds fun
Hopefully that New York one somehow ends up all the way down here in Maryland. It'll probably just end up lost at sea.
[QUOTE=Novangel;34827614]No love for Australia but still sounds fun[/QUOTE] Alter the direction!
For multiplayer, should I unlock like 4 recruit packs or one veteran pack?
[QUOTE=Death King83;34828279]For multiplayer, should I unlock like 4 recruit packs or one veteran pack?[/QUOTE] If you want human classes, recruit packs. If you want cool shit, veteran pack.
[QUOTE=GetBent;34827461]It isn't that bad, I listened to it for the first time today and was expecting Sebastian from the Little Mermaid. I was pleasantly surprised to hear it wasn't laughable. It hardly sounds Jamaican like so many people say.[/QUOTE] To be honest, I think it sounds pretty cool (when he says "Every war has its traitors" for example, sounds pretty cool). To me it's only humorous because you have all the shouting lines put together to make him sound demanding and aggressive all at once. Other than that, he does seem to have the potential to sounds pretty badass. Plus, it's nice to have some variety in the accents (like Donovan Hock's Afrikaans accent for instance).
So I've got two playthroughs I plan to import to ME3. My Infiltrator, who I MIGHT change to an Adept after seeing what those fuckers can do in MP, and my Soldier. Infiltrator is done. Pretty sure I've gotten him to 100%. Soldier is about 1/4 of the way through the game. Hoping I can finish him before March 6th. Thing is, from what I hear, there's going to be a [sp]War between the Quarians and Geth in ME3 and you have to side with one or the other[/sp]. I love both of those races. I don't want either to be wiped out. On my Infiltrator, he's normally a Renegade. But Overlord... well, I couldn't do that to David. I took the Paragon options. I feel that maybe now, knowing about [sp]what happens between the Geth and Quarians in ME3, that may have been a mistake.[/sp] As horrible of a thing it is, on my Soldier I'm going to let Archer keep David, and continue his work. It may prove immensely useful. I can't risk not having at least one playthrough with it.
[QUOTE=DFC;34828334]If you want human classes, recruit packs. If you want cool shit, veteran pack.[/QUOTE] well that doesn't help much, I dunno if I want human classes, do I? Do I want cool shit? probably?
It should be interesting to note the differences between a "numerous casualties" Shepard and "Kaidan/Ashley" Shepard. I just need to make up my damn mind on who to kill and who to keep alive for said playthrough. Is it possible to kill all but two or three squadmates? :v: Starting to wonder just how much I'll miss out on in ME3 without Kasumi or Overlord too..

[QUOTE=Arachnidus;34825983]Look, they've made some arguably bad decisions business wise and some plot elements are contrived, but Mass Effect is almost universally praised for its writing. Though, I can't tell if the theme of daddy issues in ME2 was coincidental or intentional.[/QUOTE] After you play 3, remember this you made this post.
[QUOTE=Sardonus;34825169]Saren killing himself was such a great moment. Right after he did it, I thought "Noo.... YOU JUST STARTED TO SEEM DECENT."[/QUOTE] I was like "Aw fuck yeah. I knew you weren't a bad guy." and then I was sad. I wish I lived in a time like this.. though war wouldn't be glorious and there wouldn't be any redos.. man. I hate people who like war.

'I should have saved Ash..' or something. Also, how is it that all the humans in the game aren't funny at all.. seriously. In the future do we evolve to lose our sense of humor?

[QUOTE=Errorproxy;34828921] Mass Effect isn't like that. [/QUOTE] Yeah, you can't say that for a fact. :P
[QUOTE=jechtman;34798595]Hope is now restored, thanks guys.[/QUOTE] [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/31693224/Mass%20Effect/yus.PNG[/img] Grand total of $15 cheaper from using the Aus version of the website, can't wait to take Earth back.
[QUOTE=Delta616;34829011]Yeah, you can't say that for a fact. :P[/QUOTE] It's not very figurative. You can analyze it like literature with literary devices. But that kid was real. See we can say kid's death is a symbol of the innocence of humans in this alien society dying or something. But I'm sure the kid's there.

News on Mordin, hope it's true. If someone knows otherwise correct me. [sp]Depending on what happened in the loyalty mission, he can either survive or die during the krogan princess mission. Now I just need to figure out what option would keep him alive. I'm guessing keeping the cure data would aid in his survival but I'm not sure.[/sp]

The additional research would prove useful I'd imagine.
