I don't know about you, but I greatly preferred roving around in the Mako in ME1 over the shitty scanner clicker shit we got in place of the Mako.

It was fine on the mainline planets but when you had to go on the minor sidequest planets that all look like someone made them in a Far Cry map editor the shitty controls of the Mako really start to show.

It's one element of a game, fuckwad. Most of them wouldn't make a good standalone game, that's not a reason they're shit.

It only ever controlled remotely well in the handful of plot-critical segments it cropped up in, while all the sidequest planet roving shit had atrocious level design. It's not that the Mako was necessarily bad, but the way it was used most of the time fucking sucked.

Eden Prime/Citadel, Therum, Asteroid X57, Feros, Noveria, Virmire, Ilos/Citadel is my preferred way of playing Mass Effect.

Which is still cool, since Cuttlefish are fucking weird looking motherfucks.

It's kinda a shame what happened with ME1's side planets and side missions. Yeah, the worlds were dull as shit and looked like they were made in some funky random terrain generator with some copypasted assets thrown on top, and all the side missions on planets/ships were the same copypasted scenario in the same copypasted room with the only difference being who you met after you defeated the enemies.

But it was something they could've IMPROVED on. Instead they just scrapped it.

That's literally the best way to play though.
You have to start at Citadel, Therum gets you the best companion early on, Asteroid X57 gets you good gear, Feros is easier than Noveria, Virmire makes more sense to do later and Ilos is last by default.
>>
>>323311852
>Instead they just scrapped it.
Literally all they did was get rid of the shitty planet roving, which couldn't really be improved upon without dedicating a shitton of resources to a game that already suffers from a bloated sidequest log and a bunch of filler. The sidequests are still there in about the same capacity as they were in ME1.

Some people give Mass Effect 3 shit for reducing the amount of dialogue options, but I kinda like it.

It's a shame really, because in Mass Effect 1 they actually did make the Reapers scary. Sure, it was kinda generic idea, but I thought they executed it perfectly. But in the other games they kinda 'humanfy' the Reapers or downplay their motives

the problem is that the reapers are supposed to be this lovecraftian-style horror that you simply cannot comprehend. They worked well because you didn't understand them or their motives AND your feeble human brain could never dream of comprehending them.

There was basically no way to give them a fleshed-out backstory and understandable motives without it ruining their characterization and making them lame as shit. That's not to say bioware did "the best they could" with ME3's explanation, because they did an awful job even with what I said considered.
>>
>>323312452
Krogan just shrugging off your bullets, rushing you and headbutting you to death was a god damn pain.

Say what you will about Mass Effect 3 but it was the closest thing to good combat the series has, to the point where the horde mode multiplayer was actually fun as hell.

I think its funny as hell in Mass Effect 3 that if you didn't do the loyalty missions and your squadmates somehow survive the game just up and kills them off immediately the first chance it gets.

Like "Oh, you're a lazy cunt who got lucky? Well too bad nigger, all the Mass Effect 2 squadmates and most of the Mass Effect 1 squadmates are fucking dead."

>the third one just ends on a sour note
oh god especially when you loved playing 1 & 2 so much you made multiple characters..and then having to play them in 3.

Can you imagine what it's like to end ALL of them with "Tell me another story about the Shepard" and finding the will to go on and do another save?

>>323312709
And running at you head on with a shotgun in their hands. Oh and them regenerating once you put them down.

I say asari because of them making you ragdoll and then taking cheap shots at you while you got back up.

Horde Mode is still fun as hell.

One problem I had with the whole paragon/renegade thing was that Renegade seemed like the "make the hard choice for the greater good", Dirty Harry side, but Paragon was able to ALSO resolve things equally well wihle saving everyone, so Renegade just comes off as an asshole

Renegade almost always seemed like the worst option, because it's the 'fuck you I'm a space cowboy and I give no fucks about you' but at the same time you're fighting to save the galaxy, so you're not really a renegade, you just come across as a dick.
>>
Good. You opened this message. This isn't actually asari military command. They're busy tending to what's left of their planet.

So you survived our fight on Thessia. You're not as weak as I thought. But never forget that your best wasn't good enough to stop me. Now an entire planet is dying because you lacked the strength to win. The legend of Shepard needs to be re-written. I hope I'm there for the last chapter. It ends with your death.

Goes to show you should never introduce a new and important character in a video game series in a motherfucking book.
If you think your video game story can be expanded upon in books, fucking go for it but don't make it fucking required reading for the sequel just to know who all these new jagoffs are.

As for Kai Leng, it might have helped if he was actually a threat. The only fights he wins are in cutscenes and the only way to die in his actually boss fight are if the Phantoms catch you off guard somehow in that fuckhuge room and sync kill you.

If you have ME2 for PS3, download the comic that lets you make your file for 2.

If you are playing on PC, theres a site where you can download save files based on the most important decisions, from there you can use the ME2 save editor to fine tune the ME1 decisions.

And yes, I think you should play the rest. I though ME3 was alright. It was dissapointing based on what we were hoping for, but it was still alright, especially with the updated ending.

Even though I know each game had a different tone, I was a little annoyed that 3 went full military vibe.

I mean the first game was space cops and the second game was secret agents so its not like changing it again in the third was unexpected, but I thought it was kinda wierd how everyone went super military mode.

I mean I guess that can be easily explained by the fact that a actual war was going on, but the cynic in me feels they might have been trying to grab the battlefield crowd.

Does anyone have hope for Andromeda? I feel like it has a chance since its been at least in the concept phases since 2012. Mass Effect 3 was clearly rushed out the gate. I'm gonna hold out until they finally reveal some gameplay, but I also know they will be shoehorning gay characters in my face to seem progressive instead of having a gay character and them not having to constantly tell me how gay they are

Though it did microtransactions right.
Tons of free content updates and all paying does is let you unlock more crates, and since you get money for crates at a perfectly reasonable speed, it never feels like you HAVE to spend money to get crates.

It was surprisingly reasonable.

Well they did say the Mako is coming back, and its about (at least initially about) exploring a new galaxy.

Though perhaps cooldowns shouldn't have been universal, I liked biotics in 2 and 3 because they could be used more actively. In 1 they were basically nukes that had minute+ long cooldowns. In 2 and 3 they were active weapons, even if they were increasingly nerfed.

Plus they were pretty broken in 1.

It's going to be Cerberus trying to take over the galaxy to benefit humans and neo-shepard stopping them. Ceberus is going to be portrayed as heartless white men for sure, though.

Sure, you got to press the hotkey for warp a lot in 2 and 3, but had little reason to do anything else thanks to the cooldown system and how blatantly better it was compared to everything else. Using it more made the decision making process a whole lot less fun.

Cerberus is probably dead. You blew up their headquarters and the man who was running them died.

At least I hope they don't bring back Cerberus.

What I wanna know is which ending will be canon.
I assume/hope Destroy is since it would have the least plot reprecussions. With Control you gotta wonder why the reapers aren't being sent to help and Id imagine the synthesis ending would come up somehow.

A lot of the abilities in ME1 are broken as fuck. that pistol ability that significantly lowers the overheat so you can just blow as many bullets into an enemy for awhile is stupid, witch a powerful pistol you can clear areas before that thing wears off

Hell Id like it if there was a full biotic class with no guns. In Jack's recruitment mission she breaks out and destroys a whole lot of shit with nothing but her biotics.

ME1 had the best atmospheric music i've ever heard in a game. 2 and 3 massively cut down on the ambient and you could only hear your footsteps most of the time.

>exploring and unknown world
>ambient music filling your ears
>nearing an enemy
>music picks up

it helped that each major story encounter was basically a variation on the regular music. reinforced the notion that each event flowed into the other. i can only think of DEHR giving me the same feeling. any other games that had amazing sound design?

does anyone know if they said anything about the original trilogy saves being incorporated somehow into andromeda? i'm legit playing through all 3 again if that's the case.
>>
I hope they bring back the super synthy music that ME1 and 2 had.

They went full orchestral on 3 and that just wasn't as enjoyable. When the ME1 theme started during that scene with Liara though, I was pretty happy.

>>323314509

What's even more depressing is that Karpyshyn got shipped off to work on TORtanic. They dumped their main writer and really entire plot for a failure.
>>
>>323318129

In 1 you had to shoot biotics and your gun because your biotics have a meaningful cooldown. In 2 you spammed warp to get through shields and then you could finally use one of your other awesome abilities to finish the guy off...or just click on his head with your pistol. Shields in combination with the cooldown change marginalized all the other biotics. Anyway I'm sure you get my point. More wasn't better. It was just more.

Offing that faggot felt so damn satisfying. Especially after all the cutscene shit that they pulled.

They said Andromeda takes place a good while after ME3 so probably not. I believe they are basically trying to start a new story with few to no strings attached.

I dunno, I know you were supposed to hate him but I hated Kai Leng for the wrong reasons. He was just this little shit who talks constant shit but only manages to ever overtake you because the plot dictates it
The part that bugged me most was just how all your teammates keep talking about how much they hate him and it just felt like Bioware was just really trying to sell this guy as a good villain.

But he wasn't, at least I don't think so. I know a roommate I had bought into the character more than I did.

I think that both 1 and 2 have a good number of very atmospheric moments.
2 actually has a good number of atmospheric handcrafted environments for side quests.

I really wish they had more physics objects in ME2&3. I remember having some fun in ME1 using my biotics to crush enemies with what they were using as over or having a bunch of stuff floating around the room when you used singularity. It didn't effect everything, but it was cool when it did.

Biotics in general need to be more physics-based. You should be able to push containers at such velocity they kill whoever gets hit by them, for example. Or charge into some debris and fucking explode them with all the junk being thrown to the sides while harming enemies a little.

No, none, not a drop. ME3 was an absolute turd, I thought the fighting somehow was less polished than 2's and let's not discuss the story. Everyone fucks up once, and it just so happened they killed a series doing it though.
My big thing is how mediocre DA3 was, not bad, just mediocre. Almost like they knew what they did wrong, tried to correct it, and couldn't even do that right. So even if they DO know what the problems were and are taking steps to fix them for Andromeda, all we're going to get at best is some 50 hours slog through recycled environments, boring story, a flat cast that loves you for you with maybe one memorable mission or party member.
>>
>>323319931
Well what I meant was like a gunless biotic class that does nothing but various biotics.

Also I really wanted to like Vanguard, in 2 at least, I just felt it was terrible. Throwing yourself into the middle of an enemy group is just suicide and if theres only one enemy left then you might as well just kill them the same way you killed everyone else.

Vanguard on Insanity is actually the most fun way of playing ME2. You just need a good team that will debilitate and stun enemies before you charge in to unleash the hell. Miranda/Kasumi combo is great.

But why wouldn't the Reapers be able to go to the ones in the Andromeda galaxy or whatever?

>>323319169
I hate to be 'that guy' but in the supposed Bioware survey, they mention 'a mysterious alien race known as the Remnants you will rush to secure their left behind technology'. If the survey is to be believed, anyway, then I can easily see the Remnants not actually being gone but instead the villains.

So I played ME1 and I really enjoyed it.
Now I'd like to play ME2, but what is it worth (more specifically compared to ME1)?

This is actually fine with me.

Definitely they're going to smuggle Cerberus troops/Reaper-indoctrinated into ARKCON forces though.

>>323320927
Its pretty good. The gameplay is a bit more corridor shooter-y than ME1 was, but the gameplay mechanics were generally improved

The people who determine the direction of a game are the director, lead artist, writers, publishers, and producers anyway. The rest are just literally who grunts who have no input into the game at all. The thing that hurt the series most is losing Karpyshyn, and having EA as the publisher. It was EA who overrode design choices, it was EA who removed Karpyshyn, and it was EA who rushed the damn thing.
>>
>>323321236

Oh shit, what if they make a big point about how Shepard could have been indoctrinated?

Then as players we have to doubt whether the ending of Mass Effect 3 "really" happened at all.

That would be cool but I'm not sure Bioware would risk alienating the casuals.

Probably none. My bet is that they started a top secret ark like generation/hibernation ship with verified unindoctrinated members of the coucil races after the fall of the Asari planet. That would explain Shepards motivational speech we hear in the trailer. Once you arive in the new galaxy the ship gets blow up by the new antagonists of ME:A and you are amongs the few survivors fighting with new friends you meet there against the new evil.
