Madcow MadcowSpy zappin my udder
Last week I was complaining about how I couldn't get Mass Effect to work but eventually I did, however I still suffered from some major problems such as not being able to load my saves (which was quite a pain)

Today I beat the game, and I have to say that this was probably the best game I've played in a long time. It was awesome. The story was incredibly imaginative and the gameplay was very entertaining.
This is probably the first game that truely had me care about the characters. They were very memorable.

I'm buying Mass Effect 2 next week, and I'm guessing that will keep me entertained until they release Battlefield 3.

Mass Effect 2 is even better.

ME2 is ultra cool!

Is it bad that I let Ashley die purely because she's a religious idiot?

No, people like that don't help you, they only drag you down with their constant bullshit.

I let her die because I never used her and liked my bro team.

Anyway my story is that I was replaying ME1 before ME2 was due to be released but it took longer than I had planned because I wanted to do everything, meet every NPC so I could see the changes in 2. So ME2 arrived in the post and it was sitting on my desk looking at me and I played like I never played before.

I literally went through all the main planets in an hour or less. It was a blur. Anyway after seeing the credits and listening to the awesome song they used I immediately stuck ME2 disc in and when I started playing I was very surprised at how improved the visuals were. It's something you rarely see in games unless you play them on the same day and it left an impression on me forever.

Regardless while 2 greatly improved a lot of ME1, I can't help but hold 1 higher for introducing the universe and because I loved the snow planet with its calm music. You can set your captains room to play that in ME2 ;D

Anyway you'll love 2.

Mass Effect 1 would be basically flawless if it wasn't for the driving sections.

I actually liked the driving sections. The planet exploration just ruined the mako I think. Trying to slowly push the thing over a huge hill/cliff was a painful experience. >_<

I let Ashley die because the bots really suck at aiming, and because she was a bit xenophobic (which annoys me). Granted I never used Kaiden that much, his abilities aside from shooting makes him a better choice.

ME2 is pretty damned good. The simplified inventory system alone makes it better.

I let Ashley live, cuz she's hot. Come on guys, what the hell?

Oh and I don't see what's so awesome about the Noveria theme Habboi. It's just the same phrase repeated over and over again at different piches?
I didn't care much for the music in ME, or at least I didn't think it was that special. However I did like the track which played in the prothean world which you visit before you go back to the Citadel in the end

It's atmospheric. I've learned over the years that not everyone can appreciate the atmosphere that music can add to the world. It's just the way you're in that cold blue lighted snow base and the way the music adds a sense of sci-fi, mystery, darkness etc.

If you read the comments in that vid I think the people have described it better than I.

All bunch of Atheists. Shit. Anyways, I like ME2's DLC, first one didn't have any I think, I got it on steam, so maybe just me, Can't wait for the third one.

Ashley is a racist bitch! She will die every time I replay ME1 in the future. Liara is totally sexier, anyway.

Meh, I got Shepard to bang Ashley and Miranda. Way I see it, my Shepard is a space pimp.

I should really play this game shouldnt I?i
Commented 10 years ago2011-09-21 18:34:16 UTC Comment #46837
I can't believe I didn't play this game until last week. I'd have shat my pants if I played it when it was new. You ought to play it Tetsu0, it's really really good.

Outside of wedlock, Brendan? Oh no, what would God think?!

I think Mass Effect 2's inventory system and combat system are bad. Mass Effect 1 ftw.

I Lol'd at Archie's comment

Well, it was more of a chuckle, but you get the point.
Commented 10 years ago2011-09-22 16:16:44 UTC Comment #46838
I thought the inventory system of ME1 was one of it's greatest flaws. It was very inconvenient. I can't imagine they made it worse for ME2?
Commented 10 years ago2011-09-22 20:20:50 UTC Comment #46841
The thing with ME2 is that they removed the inventory entirely :P
