Finished Mass Effect 2
You guys were right, it was awesome! And they kept the story interesting, which is more than you can say about most sequels. Looking forward to ME3.

Just as when I played ME1 I found the game quite boring the first hour, but once you got in to it it was great. I think I ended up spending 26 hours playing ME2 in total, which is 7 more hours than the first game.

I liked how my decitions from ME1 actually had an impact in ME2, even though it didn't matter as much as I wanted it to, but I hear that the choices you make in ME1 (and ME2) will have an even bigger impact in ME3.

I think it's a shame that they removed the inventory system, and that they removed the infinite ammo feature. I often ran out of ammo, and as far as I know you couldn't buy ammo between the missions so sometimes I had to let my teammates do all the work. Luckily the AI was better and more controllable than it was in ME1.

Also I've been playing the BF3 Beta. It's fucking awesome, but quite buggy so far. Love the intensive firefights, they really feel vivid. I really enjoy the new suppressing feature. When you're getting shot at, you feel the danger even though you are behind cover. Feels like I'm playing Company of Heroes from a first person perspective. I'll probably end up wasting even more time on this than I did on Battlefield 2.

I believe that your ammo auto refills when you get on your ship. Also, when you run out of ammo on one gun, all the others still have full ammo. Picking up an ammo clip refills all weapons, so it's pretty hard to fully run out of ammo.

My ammo didn't refill when I returned to the ship :< It was rarely a problem though. But I had to fight my way to the final boss with my fists.

Perhaps it's a problem solved in later patches? I never bothered with updating the game. Perhaps I should have.

ME3 will be on origin. Have fun with that. I think EA is just trying to kill all of their PC brands by using that Shitty piece of spyware they call a gaming platform.

The only gun I was ever short on ammo for was whatever heavy weapon I had on me at the time, and that was kinda the point. Those guns are all badass killing machines. Collector's Beam especially.

I'm hopeful EA and Valve will work something out for ME3 and future games. I don't think BF3 sales and feedback will be as impressive as expected because of this bullshit. It might make them rethink their approach, or they'll just continue be their same old stupid selves and push more people towards pirating the poor developer's hard work.
