Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

But then [Mass Effect] began to smell my greatness!

    In ME3, somehow, Joker needs to get laid. Dude deserves a break, even if he did accidentally incur most of the responsibility for getting Shepard killed.

    It would have to be pretty gentle or he'd break a lot of bones in the process.

    So

    Infiltrators are not like Vanguards at all.

    That's going to take some getting used to.

    This is why Infiltrator < Vanguard. On the other hand, Infiltrators definitely fit well with settling back and tagging hostiles from cover.

    Certain kinds of brainsex are more strenous than others. Some, for example, can kill you.

    I really liked having Dominate as an Infiltrator, personally, because since you have AI hacking you can pretty much turn any enemy to your side (with exceptions, of course).

    So, most of the time I would just Dominate the guys in the back (or use AI hacking if they were synthetic) and pick off the rest with my sniper.

    I really don't expect very many new squad members in ME3, even if they decide to have half of the ME2 cast bugger off. When combined with the old ME1 members, half the ME2 cast is still a boatload of possible team members.

    And I fully expect all of the love interests to be recruitable. The other castmembers are a bit more iffy, but I think we'll see them play a large role. Especially because of the rumored conflict if you 'cheated' on your ME1 love interest.

    I know Power Drain is kind of redundant on an infiltrator, and AP Ammo or Dominate would be more useful

    but it feels so right

    If they ever fixed the stupid eyelash thing. The only workaround I know is annoying and doesn't do anything for the character creator.

    Pancake, Bioware just needs to hire you as their tester for ME3's character creator. With your insight and critiques they'll make one that is so advanced that every Shepard will have perfect looks, and we'll be able to create an accurate likeness of almost anyone....

    Of course the downside to this is that you'll spend their entire budget on it, and there won't actually be any gameplay in ME3, it'll just be a character creator.

    I just want to know if we're going to start off at like level 20-30 or what.

    I hope they don't pull some Metroid Prime stuff for a second time. "Oh noes! You accidentally touched bare wires and now you have lost all your powers!" It certainly, absolutely worked once but that kind of thing grows thin after awhile.

    But I can't really see starting at level 20-30 either.

    Getting eyelashes to show up won't use up their whole budget, I'm sure. They managed to get the eyelashes to appear in ME1.

    The problem isn't that Shepard doesn't have eyelashes at the beginning of the game.

    The problem is that you can't tell if you're picking eyes that have horrifying six foot long spider legs for eyelashes from inside the character creator unless you just already know what eye options have what.

    Yes.

    But would it not be infinitely more convenient if you could do it, say, from in-game? Perhaps even on the very screen where you select your character's eyes?

    They really do need to improve the character creator a bit.

    At the very least they need to give us more options in terms of hair and noses. It would also be nice if they let us have a 360 degree view of our characters face, and perhaps a choice of lighting so we could see what it looked like under different circumstances.

    As I understand it the Unreal engine that ME2 uses doesn't do hair terribly well (at least long hair). The only character with long hair is Miranda (and it doesn't look that great imo).

    This would be great if it didn't completely cut off my shot.

    And that would probably be OK if the bastard didn't regenerate like crazy.

    Which in turn would be less frustrating if I weren't on a time limit.

    Fuck this, I want my Vanguard back.

    Yeah, that hair, Kelly's hair, and Jentha's hair are strangely absent from the character creator. Not an issue if you're on the PC I guess.

    Doing the Mordin recruitment mission, are you ? Those hallways by the exhaust fans are teh suck. Honestly ? Switch to your SMG and pump lead into him until he drops. Hopefully you have someone like Garrus or Zaeed with you to put him on his back with Concussive Shot.

    those hallways don't lack cover though.

    again Optimus which exact spot are you referring to because I have done an Insanity Infiltrator run and had no significant problems with Krogan. Also I don't recall many hard time limit areas except in collector or geth missions.
