When you go to the side mission on Luna (Rogue VI) and destroy the last core, you are given a message on how there is a constant stream of binary and then the machine dies down.

Well, being the geek that I am, I figured the stream meant something.

The stream:
01001000
01000101
01001100
01010000

Well, the first thing I thought of (and the most obvious) was ASCII values, which corresponds to the letters
H E L P




...


What?! I'm a geek. :D

Oh yeah, Mass Effect is one of the greatest games I have EVER played.

I can find 2.5 flaws with it:

1) Texture loading.
2) Tediously slow elevators
2.5) Quoting Yahtzee: The Mako drives like a fat man on a unicycle.

Other than that, it's pure awesomeness. Plus, you get laid in the game! :p

The textures loading could be a engine setting/function,have the exact same thing with UT3 wich is also UE3,dunno if that could be called a fault.The mako gets easier,annoying to line up targets though.
