Mass Effect 3 stuffs
Full magazine scans
Game Informer April hub
Humans aren’t the only species that can be Husk-ified.
ME3 begins with Earth’s assault by the Reapers, and things don’t look so good, but there’s something that is a silver lining, that makes it look like it’s actually possible to not lose against the reapers.
TIM has sent his top agents to take down Shepard, The combat is going to be much harder and melee attacks are going to have more focus.
Shooting specific armor parts can have certain effects, and the AI of the enemies will have them routing Shepard and will coordinate with each other
Battlefields are going to be a great deal larger, and combat will be very varied.
Enemy Weapons can be picked up. Soldiers can carry all kinds of weapons, and other classes understandably less so.
There is a larger skill tree and RPG aspects are going to be more integrated.
Weapon Modding is a greenlight, with things like barrels and scopes
Modding your weapons will vastly affect their appearance and how they function in battle
So far the CONFIRMED SQUADMATES are: Ashley/Kaiden, Liara, Garrus, and James Sanders who is mentioned is an Alliance Marine
Species Loyalty cannot only get obtained via Quests
Levels will have ladders
Available Squadmates will still maintain a balance, if per say Garrus had not survived ME2′s events
Mass Effect 1′s decisions, such as sparing the Rachni, will have a grave impact in ME3
There’s no railroad to the end of the game, there are multiple paths to take back Earth..

Quick Summary of Mass Effect 1



Morality System
Mass_Effect_Paragon_x_Renegade_by_ghostfire.png
ME wiki wrote:
Morality is measured in Mass Effect games by "Paragon" and "Renegade" points. Unlike many contemporary role-playing games, such as BioWare's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, that represent morality as a single sliding scale of good and evil, Mass Effect keeps track of the Paragon and Renegade points on separate scales. A good action will not make up for an evil one; therefore, being nice occasionally will not stop people from fearing a killer or remove the reputation of an unsympathetic heel, but nor will the occasional brutal action significantly damage the reputation of an otherwise upstanding soldier

Are you on your second+ game? Stop sweating the small stuff and install this: http://www.masseffectsaves.com/mods/kbo.zip


Features:

No startup movies

Infinite "Storm" AKA Sprint

Modified Krogun - 6 shot magazine, 24 spare ammo (40 after research upgrade), semi-automatic, high speed ROF.

Modified Widow - 6 shot magazine, 24 spare ammo, semi-automatic, high speed ROF (same as krogun's).


Just drop this in your Mass Effect 2 install folder under \BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked\ , make sure to backup your current coalesced.ini first, just in case

GoodKingJayIII provided the following way to skip much of the introduction:

1. A lot of people don't like the opening 10 minute intro movie, but there is a way to get rid of it. Go to


C:....mass effect 2BioGameMovies


Change the extension of the following files to .bak:


Opening_End_Seq.bik


Opening_End_SeqFM.bik


Opening_Seq_INT.bik


ProCer_300_FirstFlight.bik


ME2_Opening_SunMid_INT.bak

ProNorEscapeKaid.bik


ME2_Opening_SunMid_ESN.bik


ME_EAsig_720p_v2_raw.bak


BWLogo.bak


ProNor_Shepard_Rebuilt.bik



This will not get rid of everything, you still have to watch the non-CGI cutscenes and Save Joker. BUt it does cut down quite a bit. If you want those movies back just rename them to .bik again. If you're worried your renaming the wrong thing, you can download a BIK palyer and confirm the files.



2. Changing the first nam of your character does require an external program, but is pretty easy overall.


Download Gib's Save editor here: http://mod.gib.me/masseffect2/saveedit_rev23.zip


Open a save game here: C:Documents and SettingsUSERNAMEMy DocumentsBioWareMass Effect 2Save


Backup whatever save data you want.


Delete all the files except the one you want.


Open it in the editor, go to the Raw tab.


Under squad, click player, and change the first name.


Save the file under something new, since it won't allow you to overwrite for some reason. Make sure it's a save name that makes sense like Save_0002.pcsav, has to follow that format.


Rename the directory the your desired name, and you're done!


3. For those who hate planet scanning and hacking, there is an easy ini file edit floating around. This is just a colaseced editor that you guys have already been playing with but this one seemed pretty idiot proof to me. This again needs an external program but is non-excutable.


http://www.mediafire.com/?yjjzlzzzmyj


This has all kinds of stuff like god mode, extra weapons, infinite ammo etc., but if you just want the money, just use it to get your resources, save, then exit the game and revert to the non-hacked state.


I think that's the same guide I used way back when. It works, just rename the movies to .bik.OLD or something. Pares it from 10 minutes down to ~3 minutes.

just....leave me alone. i gotta think.



Dox the PI converted the Grinch who stole christmas into

The Batarian Who Stole Christmas


Every Human Down in the Milky Way Liked Christmas a lot…

But the Batarian, Who lived just north of The Terminus Systems, Did NOT!

The Batarian hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!

Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.

It could be their slaving isn't right.

It could be, perhaps, that his jump suits too tight.

But I think that the most likely reason of all,

May have been that he has eyes, two more then normal!


Whatever the reason, his suits or eyes,

He stood there on Christmas Eve, hating the Humans,

Staring down from his ship with a sadistic, Batarian frown,

At the warm lighted windows below on the planet.

For he knew every human down on Earth bellow,

Was busy now, hanging biotic mistletoes.

“And they’re hanging their ez-zo!” he snarled with a sneer,

“Tomorrow is Christmas! It’s practically here!”

Then he growled, with his brown Batarian fingers nervously drumming,

“I MUST find some way to stop Christmas from coming!”


For Tomorrow, he knew, all the Earth girls and boys,

Would wake bright and early. They’d rush for their consoles!

And then! Oh, the noise! Oh, the Noise!

Noise! Noise! Noise!

That’s one thing he hated! The NOISE!

NOISE! NOISE! NOISE!

Then the Humans, young and old, would sit down to a play.

And they’d play! And they’d play! And they’d play!

play! play! play!


They would play M-E-1 and play M-E-2.

Which was something the Batarian couldn't stand in the least!

And THEN They’d do something He liked least of all!

Every Human down on Earth, the tall and the small,

Would stand close together, with Christmas bells ringing.

They’d stand hand-in-hand. And the Humans would start singing!

They’d sing! And they’d sing! And they’d SING!

SING! SING! SING!


And the more the Batarian thought of this Human Christmas Sing,

The more the Batarian thought, “I must stop this whole thing!”

“Why, for Twenty-Three years I’ve put up with it now!”

“I MUST stop this Christmas from coming! But HOW?”

Then he got an idea! An awful idea!

THE BATARIAN GOT A WONDERFUL, AWFUL IDEA!

“I know just what to do!” The Batarian laughed in his throat.

And he made a quick Space Santa Claus hat and a coat.

And he chuckled, and clucked, “What a great Batarian trick!”

“With this coat and this hat, I look just like Saint Nick!”

“All I need is a reindeer…” The Batarian looked around.

But, since reindeer are extinct, there was none to be found.

Did that stop the old Batarian? No! The Batarian simply said,

“If I can’t find a reindeer, I’ll make one instead!”

So he called his Varren, Max. Then he took some red thread,

And he tied a big horn on the top of his head.

THEN He loaded some bags And some old empty sacks,

On a ramshackle sleigh And he hitched up old Max.

Then the Batarian said, “Giddap!” And the sleigh started down,

Toward the homes where the Humans Lay asnooze in their homes.


All their windows were dark. Quiet snow filled the air.

All the Humans were all dreaming sweet dreams without care.

When he came to the first little house on the square.

“This is stop number one,” the old Batarian Claus hissed,

And he climbed to the roof, empty bags in his fist.

Then he slid down the chimney. A rather tight pinch.

But, if Santa could do it, then so could the Batarian.

He got stuck only once, for a moment or two.

Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue.

Where the little Human stockings all hung in a row.

“These stockings,” he grinned, “are the first things to go!”

Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,

Around the whole room, and he took every present!

shotguns! And spaceships! hammerheads! guns!

Mattocks! Locusts! Omni-Gel! And plums!

And he stuffed them in bags. Then the Batarian, very nimbly,

Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney!

Then he slunk to the icebox. He took the Humans’ feast!

He took the Human-pudding! He took the roast beast!

He cleaned out that icebox as quick as a flash.

Why, that Grinch even took their last can of human-hash!

Then he stuffed all the food up the chimney with glee.

“And NOW!” grinned the Batarian, “I will stuff up the tree!”


And the Batarian grabbed the tree, and he started to shove,

When he heard a small sound like the coo of a dove.

He turned around fast, and he saw a Human!

Little Commander Shepard, who was not more than two.

The Batarian had been caught by this tiny Human,

Who’d got out of bed for a cup of cold water.

He stared at the Batarian and said, “Santy Claus, why,”

“Why are you taking our Christmas tree? WHY?”

But, you know, that old Batarian was so smart and so slick,

He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick!

“Why, my little tot,” the fake Santy Claus lied,

“There’s a light on this tree that won’t light on one side.”

“So I’m taking it home to my ship, my friend.”

“I’ll fix it up there. Then I’ll bring it back here.”


And his fib fooled the child. Then he patted his head,

And he got him a drink and he sent him to bed.

And when Commander Shepard went to bed with his cup,

The Batarian went to the chimney and stuffed the tree up!

Then the last thing he took Was the log for their fire!

Then he went up the chimney, himself, the old liar.

On their walls he left nothing but hooks and some wire.

And the one speck of food That he left in the house,

Was a crumb that was even too small for a mouse.

Then He did the same thing To the other Humans’ houses

Leaving crumbs Much too small For the other Humans’ mouses!

It was quarter past dawn… All the Humans, still a-bed,

All the Humans, still asnooze When he packed up his sled,

Packed it up with their Cains! The Helmets! The Trophy Bots!

The DLC! And the Amps! The Launchers! The Heat Sinks!

30 million feet up! Up earth atmosphere,

He rode with his load to the ship to dump it!


“PoohPooh to the Humans!” he was humming.

“They’re finding out now that no Christmas is coming!”

“They’re just waking up! I know just what they’ll do!”

“Their mouths will hang open a minute or two,

Then the Humans down on Earth will all cry BooHoo!”

“That’s a noise,” grinned the Batarian, “That I simply MUST hear!”

So he paused. And the Batarian put his hand to his ear.

And he did hear a sound rising over the lands.

It started in low. Then it started to grow.

But the sound wasn’t sad! Why, this sound sounded merry!

It couldn’t be so! But it WAS merry! VERY!

He stared down at Earth! The Batarian popped his eyes!

Then he shook! What he saw was a shocking surprise!

Every Human down on Earth, the tall and the small,

Was singing! Without any presents at all!

He HADN’T stopped Christmas from coming! IT CAME!

Somehow or other, it came just the same!

And the Batarian, with his feet ice-cold in the snow,

Stood puzzling and puzzling: “How could it be so?”

“It came with out guns! It came without flames!”

“It came without mattocks, locusts or cains!”


And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.

Then the Batarian thought of something he hadn’t before!

“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store.”

“Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”

And what happened then? Well... on Earth they say,

That the Batarians top eyes fell out that day!

And the minute his eyes didn’t feel quite so tight,

He whizzed with his load through the bright morning light,

And he brought back the guns! And the amps for the fights!

And he, HE HIMSELF! The Batarian was carved up and burned with roast beast!

By little Commander Shepard who sold his testes


Bobble Mad an ode to the death of Batarians to the tune of Gilbert and Sullivan
I am the very model of a killer of batarians.

I've shot at many orphans, several teachers and librarians.

I love to use explosives in event of an emergency -

and even when it's not they tend to manufacture urgency.

My genocidal point of view is rarely called contrarian -

I am the very model of a killer of batarians!

    Ashley wasn't exactly small chested in ME1. It's rare that we get a good look at her outside of armor, but she definitely wasn't lacking in that department.

    Yeah, she wasn't lacking, and I'm guessing the catsuit adds to it, it's snug in all the right places.

    I would be happy if they dropped weapon typing altogether and just gave us a bunch of different weapon options with corresponding performance stats we can compare. I don't need to know if this is supposed to be an assault rifle or a shotgun, I need to know how fast it fires and how hard it hits.

    And if there are a couple of guns that go back to the infinite ammo with heat build up, I would be so goddamn happy.

    I always thought Ashley was cute, anyway. I also never thought she was being racist so much as realist.


    Though I'm not sure about the apparent boob job they've given her, it's seems like they've tried to turn her into Ashely Lawson.
    Ashley wasn't exactly small chested in ME1. It's rare that we get a good look at her outside of armor, but she definitely wasn't lacking in that department.

    Yeah, she wasn't lacking, and I'm guessing the catsuit adds to it, it's snug in all the right places.

    Really, I have no complaints, I'm just glad to hear that the Ashley/Kaiden fans aren't going to be shafted in ME3.

    Now shep on the other hand... :winky:

    I don't like the cover for the Game Informer article. Could they use something slightly more original than him standing in front of a burning Earth? Also this reminds me a lot of Halo. An alien race invading Earth surprisingly, all odds look against humans, Shephard has to fight husks (flood) and the only part of Earth that's being attacked is Africa (lol racist?).

    Edit: I meant Game Informer, not Gamespot.

    Eh?

    We already know London's Calling (To the faraway towns), War is declared, and battle come down.

    Unless Africa kicked up in the last couple centuries, it makes sense they would focus on the least developed parts of the world for easy harvesting.

    So, is there an editor that allows you to create your own savegame to be imported into Mass Effect 2, such as the editor that some intrepid modder made for Dragon Age 2?

    It's for the good of Yoomanity.

    So, why is everyone looking forward to the return of planet exploration a la ME1? Was that mentioned in the article?

    Because there's really not much time to loiter around the galaxy during an ongoing Reaper invasion. And judging by DA2, we're likely to get a more linear story constrained to a limited set of locations.

    Super excited though.

    I want to see America(!) under attack. Like, what does a futuristic Seattle look like?

    The N7 missions were so much better than ME1's exploration I can't even stand it, but accessing them was too tedious. Many of them were very relevant to the ongoing story. Mix those with Hackett/news stories/other missions telling you about them.

    Linear location and a linear. Oh boy. If I wanted to have linear locations and story, I would go play space FPS #122324.

    Also, why is Bioware making me pay more money by buying the DLC just so I can understand what's going on in the game?
