    SO this is interesting. Taken from the Bioware boards (Regarding the Dragon Age Blood Dragon armor for ME2):

    God Damnit they had to go and make this armor so badass...

    I pray that Mass Effect 2 does not fall prey to the unfortunate condition that plagues so many rpgs: as the level of the armor goes up, it looks sillier and dumber, while cool looking lower level armors become obsolete.

    no my friend, remember this is an EA move

    remember Dead space? they did the same for that game giving you a bonus armor if you preordered the game. that "elite" armor was THE SECOND most powerful armor in the game. only the soldier armor was better and you could only get that by finishing the game and starting a NG+

    most probably this armor will follow the same logic

    I hope not! When we discuss in-game promo items, we (marketing) ask the team specifically NOT to make the items unbalancing or "too good". They have to fit properly with all the other items in terms of power and balancing. We don't want to break the game for people that way.

    So it isn't going to be super-awesome like in Dragon Age where you had to wait a while to use it?

    The Singularity Gun with the Terminus Armor (which has shit bonuses admittedly, bar the 10% negotiation) already looks fairly overpowering.

    Giving it to a Vanguard, he now has all of the Adept's powers I reckon.

    I've heard it was going to be pretty good, but not necessarily the best. And who knows how the whole armor mod system works in here.

    Any news on a Steam release?

    Hopefully they do something similar to the Digital Deluxe version of DA. Complete with the low mismarked price of $54.

    Retail bullshit. Not only will they sell used games, they will demand special copies of original games as compensation for any digital devilry being committed.

    I think the best news is that none of the achievements are going to be obviously annoying

    You can come pretty close to identifying the 10th member of your crew, but without broader context you won't spoil anything significant significant.

    There is an achievement for gaining the loyalty of each crew member, the titles of which are likely significant in terms of personal quests, but for now there is little to be gleaned.

    So like a lot of you I've been reading stuff. Since we all play this game for hot human on human/alien action first and foremost I read what the ESRB had to say via IGN. I won't post the whole thing, but this made me chuckle in a "takes off his robe and wizard hat" sort of way.

    Really, people just need to chill the heck out. Sure it's not up yet, but does anyone actually think that they'd sell it on other DD sites but not steam? Just wait, like DA, and it will show up eventually, before the game comes out
