    what's the track name?

    On YouTube it's "The Catalyst", and it's the unofficial OST.

    I'm getting a little annoyed with the official OST for games tending to exclude good tracks.

    You can find almost all of the excluded tracks on youtube if you search for them. I was amazed that they didn't include the Virmire assault music in the OST. That's maybe the most recognizable music of all of ME1 for me, tied with the Vigil theme (which they did include).

    The most incredible thing for me is still that "Vigil" is embedded in the machinery sounds in the war room. Every now and again when I was in there I always almost, but not quite, felt like those chords were there. The really awesome thing is that it also really drags out the intro chord - like the whole room is sort of "waiting".

    Really, a most of the ending commentary I've seen has been really well argued - and I'm actually kind of happy that we've had so much discourse on broader storytelling concepts in general. For gaming in general, these are important things to talk about since they affect the entire medium.

    EDIT: And yeah, ME needs to win all sorts of awards for it's music.

    Yeah, yeah it is. Well articulated. Hasn't changed my opinion, but I can certainly understand why people are unhappy with it now. Hopefully this becomes viral.

    Hiya folks. Been playing mainly SP here since I only had the 2 day gold pass atm but I had a question for those who are playing on the brobox. Has anyone been having issues with the discs? I've been getting it freezing on loading screens, when it asks to switch discs and when I've literally walked up to a door and highlighted it to open. Has anyone else who's been playing had this trouble? Should I look at replacing my discs?

    Also Salarian Engineer is at least borderline overpowered due to how enemies react to Decoys like an impassable road block.

    I agree with what the video says principally but not in execution and detail.
    Also, ironically, your ending to your video was just as bad as mass effects. Perhaps that was intentional.

    Any advice for speccing combat drone in multi? I'm guessing extra shields is rather pointless which makes ranks 4+5 rather easy but unsure whether to plump for rockets or chain lightning at rank 6.

    I went Damage & Shields/Damage & Shields/Chain Lightning and it worked fine

    I don't know about the other upgrades but I hear Shock and Rockets make the drone's behavior kind of funky, and the exploding effect is basically useless so I'd rather it be able to maybe survive a couple more seconds and distract things.

    I too was hitting the glass ceiling - but I kind of attributed that to class burnout. I've been having an absolute blast playing the Salarian Infiltrator, and having unlocked the Raptor I'm all about the MP again.

    I'm hoping that Bioware releases a new type of Pack that is just rares, it's seriously about time already. Make them 100,000 credits or something, but give us a better chance at something we actually want..
