Has anyone found any side quests that teach you more about the protheans(sp)
Since most people cannot finish a long game like this in less than 24 hours you might want to MARK YOUR ****ING SPOILERS ASSHOLE.

Thanks.

I love this game! GOTY for me. Wait, it's January.....

Doesn't Miranda look like the girl from Chuck (TV):

Yvonne Strahovski

Of course, Miranda is a brunette version, but I am in love with that chick and it's the only reason I watch Chuck. <3

Yes, I was getting like 20 fps with the 00000045 mode. nHancer didn't have a ME2 profile so I just made my own. Did you make all of the other settings the same as ME? Maybe I did something wrong.

Don't say your sorry, go back and fix it for the others, it's still there.

Also maybe 15+ years of common home Internet should be enough time to learn this common act of polite forum behavior, so you might want to work on that.

Yeah, she is the voice and they based the models on her as well.

I have everything max in-game at 1080res... never touched anything in the ini, forcing 4xMSAA in nHancer using 00045 mode, 60fps locked at all times.

I have tested with it off and see much more jaggies and same performance.

The good thing is that it's an awesome shooter in a massive world with RPG elements like quests and skills and upgrades. I love RPGs, LOVE THEM, but I thought the original Mass Effect was too much of an RPG for the kind of gameplay it had... this game is a ton better in my opinion.

I do hate the helmet thing though, I want to use the Blood Dragon armor but no face in dialogue means no sale.
excactly, when you buy Bioware game you expect an RPG. I didn't say it was a bad game, just worst Bioware game, which is stil better then others.

Yeah but was there a Mass Effect 2 profile in your nHancer already? I had to create one myself meaning I had to set all the SLI modes and stuff like that. I am thinking maybe I did that stuff wrong.

now the bad parts
1) Inventory system, almost completely gone, you can pick type of gun, and pick type of armor, thats it
2) custom armors (blood dragon, inferno), why can't you remove the damn helmet. Animation in bar when you ask for drink, goes through the helmet
3) 4 times I got stuck in different objects, ceiling, barricade, floor and a rock
4) Almost all types of guns use same type of ammo, same bull**** they tried in Deus Ex2
5) RPG elements almost completely gone
6) no In-game DLC download system
7) maybe a spoiler ---> Jack, come on, WTF, she was able to destroy half of the ****ing ship, blow holes in the side of steal walls, and jet in the fight she is weak and keeps dying. the Jack intro scene was a bit over exaggeration, don't you think?
8) Why does Zaeed have no conversation system? did they forget?
9) very limited amount of guns - pathetic, they turn the game into shooter and have less guns then before


Conclusion: Worst Bioware creation to this date
Agree with your post. I was hoping they would go MORE rpg and tactical but seems they wanted to appeal to the Gears of Wars type crowd. Sadly, this game has the Fear2 syndrome.
