Finally completed ME1 on the PC. Was a total hard ass throughout the game and got me some of Ashley.

Thinking about going back and starting a hardcore campaign with newgame+.

Hardcore is pretty brutal in places. Mako shield and armor drop faster than bobs panties and then the shield take for ever to recharge. Then fighting biotics can be impossible as they have almost instant recharge on their powers. So you have to the perfect team with perfect tactics to win.

Dragon Age didn't... That I know of. Bioware is serious business.

I think the main reason I never got into ME was because Shepard is such a boring character. He has no personality. Just another "all-American good guy". Compare that to a game like Crysis Warhead... now there was a protagonist!

Also the 3rd person shooting was pretty crap. But I just don't like 3rd person shooting...

I am so excited for this game, I love the universe. It really is one of the best melding of shooter and rpg.

I can't wait for the game next week, I am going to finish ME1 before then. I loaded it up last night and noticed I was actually quite close to the end so I'll be done by Tues for sure . I actually finished the "bringing down the sky" DLC by accident, I was just planning on finishing the game but it was great to play new content I never played on the 360 version I rented.
