DAMN is it a shooter though.
Hyper-dialog Gears of War in space, isn't that what everyone wants? Professional reviewers sure lap it up.

Pretty sure this game, despite being a shooter with RPG elements, has a lot more depth and story integrity than Gears of War.

From another forum:

Anti-aliasing works using the 00000045 AA & HDR compatibility tag. I was actually surprised that it turned out to be that one instead of any of the Unreal 3 options. Some also found that the same tag in the first Mass Effect works, but that seems to be hit or miss. This was using the most recent driver (196.21).
Worked for me.

P.S.: Cerebus Network and EA account works for me now, got all my DLC and sitting pretty!

Okay so I entered my code for the Cerberus Network, and I have 3 DLC options to downlaod.

Does anyone know how I redeem these 2 other keys I have showing in Steam? I think they are for the collectors edition but I don't see anywhere to add them.

Nevermind, got it.

Wow this game rocks, it's much better than the first one. It has a more polished feel, it almost makes the first one feel not quite a AAA title. It IS more shooter than the first, 3rd person shooter that is.

I'm glad I got the PC version, loving the controls.

Fun game so far. I'm only a couple hours end, but I'm already far more impress with ME2 than was with ME1 at the same point. So far I'm mostly positive with the gameplay chains, although I wish they kept more skills and kept the ammo types. I do not miss the inventory system (Bioware either needs to go back to Baldur's Gate style inventory in its games instead of the damn lists they've been using since KotOR, and a little bit of thought about the control set up would make work well with console D pad, too, with possibly something like context sensitive display).

The new Normandy is slick, with much better lighting. EDI is a little freaky - Tricia Helfer used the same tone for EDI that she used for a fairly annoyed Head Six... Keep waiting for Baltar to show up...

This game has been a blast so far. It's leaps and bounds better than the original, and considering that all the reviews said it was going to be completely different, I wasn't expecting much. Dang, I was surprised.

This may be in the running for Game of the Year 2010. The ante has been upped once again.

Damn you all and your compliments for the game. I think it's time to just use my moneys and get the game instead of waiting for a videocard, lol. Should I? Seeing how Fermi got pushed back till April, I don't think a GTX 260 is going to drop anytime soon.

Can anyone go in-depth about the combat system? I really didn't like it from the live streams I was watching. It just seems pretty hectic and there was nothing more to it than duck and cover + biotics. It seems that if you see crates or something to get behind, you know theres going to be a rush coming. I guess it's something you have to actually play to understand.

The scanning for resources worries me though. I thought that part of the game wasn't thought out well at all. It's like, "Hey Illusive Man, care to spot me so I can upgrade stuff to save humanity? You spent over 4 billion on my ass, what's another 450K for upgrades?"

LOL.

Okay forcing AA through nHancer is really not working right here. I can get AA to work, but I get weird random slowdowns when looking at certain areas but when I look at others it's 60 fps. It's unplayable because every time I turn I get the slowdown.

Can anyone tell me how to set up the nHancer profile for this game?
