    Anyone think that

    Was still a better menu theme than the other song they used? I mean, I know its from arrival but it had that sinister feel to it.
    If nothing else, Arrival sure had some good music in it.

    Shepard uses his basketball skills during his downtime to convince the other races to join the fight against the Reapers.
    Or he defeats the reapers in a game of Space Jam.

    Somebody hasn't kept up to date. That's James Vega, one of Shepard's new allies.

    that's Vega

    the fans do not like him very much since everybody figure's he's replacing the obligatory bro-tier Krogan squadmate

    Blast McHardcheese

    in other news, I feel terrible

    While speaking to Miranda, I pretty much bullied her into kissing me
    and now she's acting completely different to me
    But I don't wanna cheat on Liara because that seems like such a douche thing t odo.

    Pretty good, though I think it would be better if Shepard wasn't in it.
    I agree. When they try to transfer the protagonist of any videogame into live action, it never looks quite right. Skryim, had this problem, Halo 3: ODST had this problem...

    Since it didn't exactly require acting, they would have been better off getting Vanderloo.

    I only really noticed a couple of easter eggs though; the explosive container in one of the riot scenes (just before the chair goes through the window), and the husks coming out of the Aldrin Labs building.

    I'm playing Mass Effect 2 again and I wanted to have a romance with Miranda but everytime I go talk to her she says "There's a lot to do Shepard". Does that mean that I screwed up and now she's not available to be Shepard's relationship?

    No, she just has a lot to do

    I'm in the opposite boat

    I don't want to
    But she seems attached :C

    Damn. I already did her loyalty mission, I talked to her a few times but now she only ignores me. I was trying something with Jack but then she started to act jealous because I talked with Tali.

    I guess I'm terrible with women.

    squadmembers do that occasionally, continue with recruitments and such.

    Get to the conversation where Miranda starts ranting about her father again, and Shepard can pretty much bully her towards a kiss.

    I can hardly remember the music from Arrival, while I still remember Overlord, Shadow Broker, and Kasumi's music. That was one of the big things that disappointed me about it, actually.

    I think the camera should be positioned looking directly into Shepard's face, and you should have to play the game entirely by looking at the reflection on his super-high-def visor.

    Mass Effect DLC traditionally has unusually good music, they set the precedent with Bring Down The Sky and it only got better with Overlord, Kasumi and Shadow Broker.

    Everyone is recruited. I'm pretty much with only the Reaper IFF mission and 2 DLCs missions left. And I guess I already went through that conversation (Without the kiss). >:

    There is a very simple solution to this:

    fuck her then purposefully get her killed during the suicide mission

    absolutely no downsides and you get laid

    But of course. Right next to the entire section on gratuitous violence and ass poses.

    I mean, I have no complaints. Always like a little bloodshed and sex along with my well written plot and intriguing characters.

    Indeed. As I said earlier though, that trailer would have had a lot more impact if it ended on the scene of the bridge getting destroyed.

    I romanced Liara in ME1, but in ME2 I'm conflicted between being loyal or romancing Tali. I like Tali a lot but I don't really want Liara mad at me I guess. On my 1st ME2 play through I didn't have the Broker DLC.

    Tali is probably going to end up being the most horrible looking thing ever and it's going to be hilarious.

    It wasn't the main character, but they did feature the ODST uniforms which, to me, seemed a bit off.

    Despite those complaints, they were pretty good ads.

    Watch her be a Star Trek style alien. I'm guessing that's the most likely event, where she's mostly human with just a weird nose or forehead or ears.

    Quarian Skeletons look pretty much human, and I could've sworn the books mentioned they look basically Human facially except for weird ears.
