should be noted that mass effect is actually 20 dollars with a 5 dollar rebate. Still a good deal, just not quite as good.

Hmmm...I tried to do Crackdown from them using paypal, but they wouldn't give me the discount. :bomb: I'll try Mass Effect and see if I can grab it for that...if not, it's either wait to see if Gamefly goes for it this week, just spend the extra five bucks at Gamestop or wait for it to drop further.

God made me funky! :bomb:

These are specifically mentioned in a short list, so these shouldn't be an issue. DRM aside, I think I'll wait for the PC version which CC has at $20. You don't have to pay for the DLC with the PC version, also.

Is is true there's major slowdown on the 360 as compared to a decent PC? :(

Whoa, thanks mate! I finally picked up Mass Effect. Thank you so much! Don't know when I'll be able to play it. Still have to get through Fable 2, Far Cry 2, Fallout 3, and Banjo.. And Gears 2 keeps eating up my time.

Well, the PC version of course is going to run and look better if you've got the hardware, but that pretty much goes without saying. I waited to buy but then skipped the PC version because it has 'activation'.

The 360 version still looks AMAZING. Basically I think the issue is the game pushes the 360 to its absolute limits. (Also has the best looking characters and virtual acting I've ever seen-IMO even better than Metal Gear Solid 4, which is saying something). There's no slowdown really but it chugs here and there. It really doesn't affect anything though, and wouldn't in the slightest affect my opinion of the game.

Only real issue with the game is its inventory system is basically just a big list of everything. It's really dumb, but even still it just means selling your junk between missions is slightly more annoying than it should be (and that wasn't fixed in the PC one).

Installing Mass Effect to the 360 hard drive resolves some graphical stuttering and other minor complaints.

That's a good point. I played it before the update, but that doesn't surprise me that it would help it run better. Even as it was though it worked, it just really pushes the hardware more than any game I've played so far.
