Mass Effect 1


So I'm a little behind the times. :P

Great game. Enjoyed it as much as I did the KOTOR games. True, there was no huge-ass surprising plot-twist that equaled the Revan thing, but the true purpose of the Citidel and the Mass Relay monument were pretty cool.

I managed to complete every single assignment except for the Renegade/Paragon ones. Apparently I'm too damn neutral. And apparently the romance sub-plots in these things are to be forever closed to me, so I never got to see any of the infamous sex scenes. Ah well.

But even without a huge personal plot twist, the game still messed with my head. In my play-through, I had Garrus and Ashley on my team for most of the game...until Ashley just friggin' shoots Wrex in the back of the head and I sent her on the suicide mission. Then I decided to save the guy (Mister Boring) with the mission-critical nuke. That was the hardest video game decision I ever had to make...I actually paced the room for 5 minutes thinking about it :lol

So, I played through the rest of the game with Garrus and Tali...which means I'm glad to see they can be in my party in the next one.

No no, Wrex drew his weapon on me and I was in the process of talking him down when Little Miss Triggerhappy put a couple bolts into his back. That's why when the Solarian asked for a team member to go with his commandos, I sent Ashley as "punishment".

How much did you put into Charm or Intimidate, incidentally, Deino? I suspect the options that allow him to survive may have been grayed out due to you being insufficiently persuasive. :lol

Not that jerk :lol

But yeah OM, My Charm and Intimidate trees were grayed out most of the game. I was only able to use Charm once the entire time.

Part of it could have been me doing things wildly out of order. Mostly I flew about looking for side missions so I could do as much as possible before the story progressed so far that things were cut off, as has been my experience in many RPGs. I didn't even do Noveria until near the very end.

And it's not like I was happy about Wrex dying. Nor was my wife, being woken up at 1 AM by me shouting "YOU FUKKIN' !@#$!!!" at the TV emoticon

Re: Mass Effect 1


Well, I finally got my Xbox... was it last week? Whenever it was. Maybe two weeks ago. Anyway, I snagged Mass Effect 1 from my brother and for the past three nights I've been playing it pretty much non-stop. I really like this game. I see I'm not the only person who prefers the Garrus/Tali team. I haven't done much of the actual plot yet, like Dein I've been doing the side missions first trying to scrounge up every last bit of XP I can before I hit the story. I've gotta say though, Garrus is !@#$ awesome. That man is going to totally be on my team when I get around to #2.

Gundam and Kamen Rider, two flavors that taste great together.

:lol Garrus is indeed the man. And he *was* half the reason I made a fem-shep emoticon

But him, Tali, Wrex and Mordin are up there in my favorite characters of all time list.. Bioware did a really fantastic job at making you actually give a damn about your party members, something that makes me easily able to overlook some of the game's other flaws.
