You can still use it since you downloaded it, right?

Not going to get that far in the game this late (class in the AM), but the DA:O Armor showed up, and the Inferno Armor (both of which I had previously put in keys for) and
Spoiler
. I'm hoping it's just a "it's not the 26th in all time zones" thing.

EDIT: NVM it's showing up at the appropriate place in game, just not in the DLC menu.

Man this game is excellent. A small learning curve if you played the first one, but it's really top-notch. Gonna go play now.

Oh MAN. I've been playing for an hour or so now and it is weird because this is the same game.... except completely different!

Best things so far... no more annoying texture problems and hooray you can actually sprint outside of combat.

Worst thing so far: EA Online nonsense.

Yeah I was pretty shocked.

I got stuck in an invisible wall one time, and the second glitch involved being unable to progress because I had to clear out all the enemies in an area.... except the lone enemy remaining had fallen through the game world and was unreachable. :applause:

Game is fucking brilliant though. At first I was completely out of my element due to the changes from ME1, but I'm getting used to everything and I am really digging just how humorous the game has been so far.

Looking forward to putting in a 12 hour session tomorrow!

Well as of right now I got my code for preordering online with gamestop but nothing saying my CE has shipped. I'm starting to think I'm going to get an email saying backordered and if that is the case I will not be happy. I wont be able to look for a copy then till thursday. It is bad enough that with the slowest shipping option(free) I wont get the game till chances are next weekend.

EDIT: Well I just looked on my account with gamestop.com and they game shipped only it says "Allow 5-10 business days for transit & 2 business days for processing." Anyone know if it usually takes that long with them? I know it is coming USPS so I am hoping for no dents in the case. I don't know how long it usually takes with GS.com as most of the time I order from Amazon.com and the free shipping takes about a week or so.

Can anyone that has imported saves give me an idea of what kind of bonuses they got for having a high level character?

I'm interested in what you get for importing a 60 vs a 30ish? Anyone have any ideas yet?

Go ahead and spoiler it if people don't want to know.

I don't remember all of the exact bonuses off the top of my head, but:

Thanks so much, those seem pretty cool, but not game changers (just like they should be).

I was about 3/4 through my completionist 2nd play through(about level 57) when I got stuck in a elevator loading screen and my both my saves (manual and auto) were stuck in the same spot.

So I'm reduced to importing my 1st play through only.

Thanks again for the info.

Ugh.. i'm still waiting for it to arrive but I just found out the install is 12.4 GB? Even if I wiped one of my 20 gb hard drives, that would still only be 13 gigs and with DLC already available, I doubt there would be enough room for everything on one HD. Damn MS and their tiny-ass hard drives.

Just finished my first 12 hour session, and just wow. This game is beyond fantastic. Every aspect has been improved upon. I'm forcing myself to take a break right now, but I just want to keep playing.

How does one redeem their collector's edition code? I'm reading the card that came in the CE and it says nothing about going to XBL or anything...

EDIT: If someone could take a snap shot of their code card that came with the CE (just black out the code), that would be most appreciative. I'm not seeing anything on here about downloading the content off of XBL.

'Bout ready to start the game. Damn, this is gonna be good.

EDIT: LOL, wow, I didn't realize my character from ME was all the way up to Level 59. I would have sworn it was like 57 or 58. I should have gotten around to capping him off. Oh, well.

I've only played through the first two missions so far, but man this game is retarded good. I'm 21 years old and the last time I was this excited for a game was Halo 2 I think.

I kind of got into a really bad habit on my last mass effect play through of jamming X during convos, lol. Gotta stop that shit!

Lame, the release button for disc two in my case was cracked, so it won't stay in place.

Seeing this waiting on my doorstep was like Christmas morning or something though, seriously.

Mmm...just picked up the second to last Collector's Edition at the Beaverton, OR Best Buy...

Only put in about 15 hours into the first ME before the terrible Mako sections, tons of technical glitches and bugs and not-very-good shooting gameplay basically made me say "mmmm nope"

Hopefully its better...still on the fence on opening it though.

Basically every review I've read have went on and on about how they fixed ALL of that. Those were the BIGGEST complaints from everyone about the first one.

Fuck me. Got home got the disc from Amazon and the first disc does not work at all. So fucking pissed right now. Although I am lucky that amazon is letting me keep the defect CE stuff and crediting my account to buy another. But either way I still need to wait for this game.
