Whenever I saw a thresher, I'd drive as fast as I could to a rocky area, and snipe it with the big gun on mako.

 

The thorian wasn't too bad for me as I didn't randomly die, and by that time I had a really nice configuration with my guns, where my assault rifle never overheated, and it always was perfectly accurate (Frictionless materials did all that I think), and that mixed with immunity, shield boost, and adrenaline rush let me go through the entire thing without dying. But those thorian creeprs were annoying to kill. Took two shots with a shotgun each, which is a lot of if there are like 50,000 of them.

Somehow I never experienced any of the glitches you guys listed. I didn't really have a problem with thresher maws either, I just kept circling the area and blasting them with the big cannon as soon as they appeared.

Same. They really weren't that bad if you did that.

Mass Effect was the first game I played on the 360. It was the [cabbage], and it justified me dropping ~320 USD for it and the pro system. However, there were a FEW problems.

 

 

 

1) There wasn't enough content. As kickass as the gameplay was, it seemed too short. This might just be me wanting to play it longer, but still. Get a more varied library of things to do, and I'll be fine here.

 

 

 

2) The areas I could go to were VERY limited, and too much of them seemed cookie-cutter.

 

 

 

3) The weapon types I could use were limited. Opponents got freaking ROCKET LAUNCHERS where we got grenades. Sure, the explosive rounds mod might effectively turn a gun into one, but it's just not the same.

 

 

 

4) The way that special abilities were done seems lackluster. When I'm playing a soldier, the only abilities I use personally are the weapon attack abilities. While some of the effects seem useful, I really dislike pausing the action every time I want to use them. I'd like that fixed, please.

 

 

 

5) Sniper rifles are WAY too finicky. While I can understand the low accuracy unless if you use the zoom feature, having the targeting reticule move around like I'm drunk is somewhat overkill. Reduce that, and I'm good.

 

 

 

I can't wait for the next one!

All the faults of Mass Effect would have not mattered to me if it was possible to have 3 person co-op. Your friends just take the place of your two allies, one of you is deemed Shepard, so they control what areas you go to.

 

 

 

I'm really hoping that Mass Effect 2 lives up to the claims of the makers to the fullest extent, as almost all 'consequential actions'-based games fail to do.


There's no such thing as regret. A regret means you are unhappy with the person you are now,

and if you're unhappy with the person you are, you change yourself. That

regret will no longer be a regret, because it will help to form the new,

better you. So really, a regret isn't a regret.

It's experience.

Adept was *the* most badass class in the game. Lift -> Throw and Singularity were just too awesome.

Go to start a new game, the first option you have is between three things, just play as John Sheppard, change your name/gender (I think?) and the third is to use an existing profile. Use an existing profile.

Damn, I started playing this game again and I'm hooked. Mass Effect, where have you been all my life? My guy's a level 12-something Soldier, though I feel like I'm missing out on the Biotics and Tech skills. Great story though, and tons of exotic things to do.

 

 

 

Quick question: If a squad member has Biotic and/or Tech abilities, do you yourself have to activate them for that squad member to use the member's capabilities in battle, or will they just activate the powers themselves? Decryption is an example, and the various Biotic powers. I can't get this straight.

They use them on your own.

If you say so, but my squadmates frequently die early on whenever I enter a battle. It's annoying. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

If you can afford it, give them the best of everything. Best armor, weapons, etc. But ALWAYS upgrade Shepard first. And isn't there a way you can give them commands, such as like... "attack/defend/hold"? (Btw, give wrex the best shotgun you got. He's a beast with it. [hide=Spoiler, yet VERY GOOD ADVICE!]DON'T KILL HIM! Up your... uuuh... Charisma? The one that lets you use the Paragon options when talking. TRUST ME![/hide]

 

 

 

I think I'm level... 58 I think on my soldier. I have the best of everything for Wrex and Garrus, max cash. On my third play through I think. I have another file that is an adept or something. 'Tis an awsome game :thumbup:

I just let them die and use Unity every so often. I never notice them making a difference, but that could be because I'm currently playing on Hardcore... Also, there's an option to change what your teammates do with their abilities. You can set it to User-activated only, Defensive only, and then there's just automatic do-whatever-you-want. I have mine set to User-Activated, since I use their abilities a lot (I'm a soldier).

Thanks for the squad help guys. I usually just use Unity now whenever they die, and I don't rely on my squadmates as much now, although Liara is a really good member to have around for her Biotics.

 

 

 

So, I finished the game, which was incredible by the way. It was an unbelievable story, and a great final battle, kind of like a movie. But now, when I hit resume, it just goes right back to the auto save at the final battle. Does anyone know how to continue on and do the rest of the many side quests I left off? There's also DLC.

I beat the game last night (played it through in a few days) even though I do have a question.

 

 

 

[hide=spoiler]People make a big deal out of Shepard being dead (he isn't, due to the ME2 trailer. But before that people thought he was). Why do people get the idea that he died in the first game? I didn't get anything that hinted at him dying when I beat the game and watched the final cutscene[/hide]

[hide=]I guess they're just crazy. There really is nothing I can tell that shows he's dead. Besides, it's been known for a while that ME2 would be out, and that your ME1 saves would come into play. Shepard walks away from the Udina and Anderson (Also the Council if you chose to save them), after saying how the Reapers are coming and he's going to stop them, and then the ending cut scene is over after a little bit of talk from Anderson. It could be the ME2 Trailer, where his 'status' is listed as KIA.

 

 

 

EDIT: After watching the teaser and then the trailer, Shepard goes MIA, and is assumed KIA. I'm guessing that The Normandy is destroyed and most of the main characters are able to escape. Then he decides not to resurface, for whatever reasons, or he simply faked his death because it was beneficial (This is unlikely).[/hide]

So does anyone know if I can continue my first game after beating the last battle and finishing the story?

I'd probably like to know the same thing too. I didn't even really do any side missions, was too focused on the main one.

You go to start a New Game regularly. The first choice you have to make is I think what profile you use. The default choice will be John Sheppard. I believe that below that is Jane Sheppard, and below that 'Choose/Use Existing Profile'.
