The World Famous Mass Effect Thread

posted by Fealiks on - last edited - Viewed by 276 users

I just started playing Mass Effect again and because I'm a massive nerd, I feel like talking about it.

So discuss anything Mass Effect related in here. Suggested topics include: the upcoming Mass Effect movie, speculation about the upcoming Mass Effect movie, Mass Effect 3 and any future books (if anyone reads them (I don't)), "I haven't played Mass Effect but want to come into this awesome thread anyway because I can sense that it's great and world famous", the plot, the characters, "What's up with Tali's face?", "who did you romance?", gay alien sex, straight alien sex, alien sex, "aliens: sex?" and anything else you can think of, including, but not limited to, alien sex.

DISCUSS!

  • @Fealiks said: Tali's character was way more developed in the second game IMO. I can't believe you're calling her a slut, though, what was slutty about her? Are you just saying it because you were able to romance her?
    Also you made tons of choices in the second game. At least the same amount as you did in the first. I agree that it was less of an RPG though, but IMO that was a good thing. It was more of an action-adventure game than an action-RPG. Keeping track of all the armour upgrades, ammo and stats in the first game was kind of annoying, I thought. I would have liked some more guns/armour in the second game, though.

    Agreed. The most annoying thing about ME1 is the crazy weapon customization stuff. I liked it for a while, but was always left with the feeling that I hadn't quite tweaked everything perfectly and it just didn't seem like it was worth all the effort. ME2 weapons are much more straight forward. I also like that there are only about 4 stats to mess with in ME2. Don't get me wrong, I like a full fledged RPG as much as the next guy, but with Mass Effect it took too much away from the enjoyment. If you are going to do RPG stuff, I prefer the way Bioware did the KOTOR games.

    Also: I really love both games, but I cannot stand driving around in that dang car looking for stuff in ME1, and the stupid probe thing in ME2 wasn't much better. Although I did enjoy probing Uranus.... "seriously Shepard?"

    I used to agree with you, but now, after starting to play ME1 again, I'm thinking that my memories of the Mako were worse than my actual experience. I'm finding it pretty fun to drive around exploring planets again.

    My only qualm with it is that when you stand next to it you realise that there's no WAY you could actually fit three people in there, even if they were all lying down (and they'd have to), especially not Wrex. I know that that's stupid, but oh well.

    I'm hoping a vehicle returns for ME3, but not the Mako. Maybe something that hovers so you don't have to deal with all the annoying mountain climbing. And I'd like it if Joker drives it. His character was developed nicely in ME2. And it'd be nice if it was a bit bigger so that I don't have this annoying OCD image of shepard being all claustrophobic while driving it. In fact, it'd be cool if it was big enough to fit the whole Normandy crew on board... like a mini Normandy... yeah... and like, when you get out, everyone gets out and is all standing outside with clipboards and stuff and they're like "let's get a team out to survey the planet" and they do all cool stuff and everything and some dudes get out with cool suits on and they wander off and like go and do things and it's...

    Sorry, I think I just had some sort of seizure but carried on typing. On second thought, that might be an awful idea.

  • *pokes head into thread*

    ... Shepard.

    *moseys on out*

  • Mako > Hammerhead

    And with slutty I mean that she drools all around Shephard while being completely proffessional in ME1 (my prefered way).

    And... what meaningful choices did ME2 have? The ending, choosing a planet's impact for missile (bugged) and... giving the disks or not (yay, bugged!).

    *moseys on out*

    Wrex...

    Also, and spoilerific here, I'm not romancing anyone in ME2 because of my choices in ME1... although, god damn... Miranda... that's all I'll say.

    Same. :p

  • Miranda sucks?

    Can't stand the little bitch... 0_0.

  • I got Mass Effect a while ago and I didn't really like it... I can see that it is still a good game but I like to do missions before advancing with the story and the sheer number available makes them get boring after a while... :o
