if that krogan is mp dlc can't wait till pug groups are full of those getting sync killed


It took one sync kill for me to go look up online which enemies can do it and what their patterns are.

I wish people were more intuitive.

I play bad games

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

There are just so many un-Godzilla like things it should be easy to see why people didn't like it (also the annoying cast). Zilla being killed by missiles was the biggest thing that bothered me Godzilla is supposed to be far stronger than that. The army shouldn't be able to hurt Godzilla unless they are using something like MechaGodzilla or Moguera.

Much obliged, time to get the DA2 stuff.

Also just re-upped gold, might be time to start playing multiplayer (first time since beta) now that I'm way behind and everyone else's interest is waning :lol:

It's worth it, even at 800 msp. Javik's hilarious pessimistic statements will go a long way to making you smile.

Personally, BioWare should've included "From Ashes" in every new copy as a "thank you" to the fans.

They did include is as a "thank you" to the fans. The fans who spent the money on the CE. ;)

Don't worry about it. The bonus disk was reprinted with more stuff added in the P.H. version, and the sample art book in there is just a small portion of what's in the hardback art book packaged with the strat guide.

All your missing is the Gears 1 style oversized steel tin and a tiny history of the universe book that's contents I'm sure are on the ME wiki.

It's overpriced to try to pick it up now b/c of its scarity (GameStop.com exclusive) as it sells used for $150-$200 online.

I almost didn't either, though that was on GS for nearly screwing up my order.

It's one of my favorite CEs, even though it's not a real steebook and just a metal case.

I don't know......the ME1 CE is one of my prized possessions. I love that thing. Not that it's anything special or a very good CE. It's just, you know, Mass Effect 1. Thus it's awesome.

As for From Ashes, it's required at any price. THe content it adds is necessary for the dialogue on Thessia alone (no spoilers just cuz I'm a swell guy.)

That's why I stopped playing and decided to wait for a sale on it.

Now I'm wondering if I should not finish the game before picking up Leviathan? I hear it adds to the fiction enough that it makes the ending better.

I wish I had a :360: CE of ME1 or 2. I do have the ME2 PC CE, which was much cheaper and less rare, and the DLC codes worked for 360 as well, so that was a pretty good deal.

Now I'm wondering if I should not finish the game before picking up Leviathan? I hear it adds to the fiction enough that it makes the ending better.

FWIW I would say just go for it now. From Ashes adds so much content to the overall game that I would recommend replaying the game to fully experience it. Leviathan, while really good, is just a standalone mission and you're not missing anything by just playing it later.

Really just the fact that you're going to have the Extended Cut as your first experience of the ending is going to radically improve your experience over those of us who beat the game before the EC.

It had never occurred to me, but I can't imagine playing the game without From Ashes in terms of the story. Makes it kind of crappy all new copies didn't come with it.

And with the EC, I think it exposed some of the absurdity in the original ending in how they had to patch it up. However, playing it that way fresh may not be so bad.

I've said it before, but plot issues aside, my biggest problem with the original ending was the lack of information. It wasn't even really an ending, more like the game just stopped in mid-thought without revealing anything about what happened or what it meant. I think anyone would agree that the Extended Cut addressed the basic issue of revealing what happened at the end of the story. Now, whether that ending was satisfying in terms of plot is another question. :lol:

No you need to play through Leviathan if you're on your original ME 3 play through. The fiction reveals are that groundbreaking.

So f'n true man, it's the origins, it's where it all started (with a nice little codex book to compliment it too). My ME1 CE holds a special place in my gaming heart for sure (prob because I paid too much to have it day 1). So not only am I a CAG but I'm also a MECE WHORE (Have ME1,2,&3 CEs) hahaha, and for ME1 and 2 - since I lived out in the boonies then - I paid a shit ton on shipping to get it launch day. Was it all worth it in the end? \\:D/ Hell yes

I have to agree. Great background info and worth replaying the end sequence again just to see it a second time.

Patch out today that is supposed to get rid of missile glitchers.

Also info in patch confirming the dlc rumors. http://www.clevernoo...-info-incoming/

"So, I just got my paws on the patch 1.05.
Stuff found so far:

- Assault rifle, shotgun and sniper rifle ultra light materials (probably primarily for multiplayer).
- Most of the recent single player DLC weapons are getting added to multi player.

There'll be more exciting stuff shortly I hope, I've just scratched the surface ;)"

Man, they STILL haven't figured out how to stop missile glitchers? They're the main reason I stopped running Platinum (and probably fell out of the mp overall.) I enjoyed the free credits as much as the next guy, but that got boring fast.

Otherwise, the idea of Ultralight Materials for my shotties and snipers sure does sound nice.

Don't know how far down you have to go on the sellers list to find a complete copy, but used ME 2 CE on 360 start at around $20 bucks on Amazon. Just forget about ME 1 though.
