I bet the saves will effect some dialogue and codex entries, but probably not the whole game world... that would be too difficult a task, I would think.

Most Japanese RPGs use this save system, and it's pretty awesome. The most it'll do is change some dialogue and keep your stats, money, skills, etc. Basically anything that's dynamic. The latest one I've played allowed you to continue your levels from the last game and even threw in a bonus skill.

PSP did the same with Monster Hunter 2, and it was pretty cool as well. They gave you vouchers in the game you can trade in for extra items and stuff.

Don't know if this is the route they're taking from here on out, but it would be awesome to see a lot more variety in games like this.

One thing I'm pretty sure they've addressed is the crappy inventory system. As someone mentioned earlier, you acquired a lot of useless crap along the way.
Stats and combat systems I felt were spot on, but it was a pain in the ass to sort out through my equipment in order to choose what I wanted for my peeps.

I also strongly agree with what most people have stated. Have less worlds, and make them more diverse. Having 13242435 billion worlds, and have them all be barren wastelands with nothing interesting on them is just obnoxious.
This would be especially useful for those side missions where they send you to rescue some dude's second-cousin's long lost daughter of his mother's best friend's uncle.

I was able to tap both that blue chick AND Ashley in one game. That is if you are talking about the one in the citadel.

I fled the citadel before I managed to complete all the tasks... hmm

Heh. You should go back and finish all of the quests.

It's the Consort chick. After you help her, she gives you a necklace (which is rumored to have some significance in Mass Effect 2), and if you tell her "That's all?", she'll BOM CHIKKA WO WOW you. Yes, even if you're female.
