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

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.

look, i'm sorry guys i didn't mean for that to happen. YES i know that was our backup plan. YES i know we don't have any "spare" puppet species. YES i know just how much energy we spent on the collectors and on that base.


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 wrote 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!

then create or link an existing EA classic account. Origin should figure out what's up without you doing anything more at that point.

    Kicking some ass in MP. Unlocked the Claymore and the Hornet last night in one game. Just need to finish up all the biotic classes.
    Regarding the spoilers..
    Saving the base only nets 10 more points than destroying it. Hell just recruiting a DLC character gives you 25. So not a very big deal at all.

    Bless your heart.

    In all honesty, I'd say the fan-made World Collapsing trailer is the best one so far, though the flashes of fleet-level combat in the Take Back Earth one make me seriously salivate. Fuck yeah, show me that sense of epic scale. I live for that shit.

    HOLY SHIT KROGAN SOLDIER

    It was the first alien I unlocked (after two great Silver games, thanks Athracht!) and since I've been playing Human Soldier all the time, I had loads of points to spend.

    So I spec him and hop into some random Bronze game to try him out..and who is that game with me? Two other Krogan Soldiers and some Turian.

    It was absolutely hilarious. All the time you would just hear "WUAAAAH..AAAAAH...AAAAAAARGH..WUAAAAAAH..JAAAAAAH!" while some Cerberus fools were being headbutted and pimpslapped around.
    Between waves me and the other 2 Krogans would gather and spam the basic melee attack, screaming and headbutting all day err' day.


    I think I found my favorite class once the game is released <3

    I did a round with my Asari and three Krogans. Every time I'd set up a warp bomb, some random lizard would be all headbutting his way through my perfect strike. Bastards.

    Sorry if this was asked in the other thread...

    But how reliable is Best Buy with pre-orders? I was able to pre-order the CE from their website, with in-store pickup, last week when it was out of stock elsewhere. Then it immediately went out of stock again, to the cue of internet folks saying they did the same thing during Christmas and lots of people had orders cancelled the day before release.

    I'm aware nobody can know for sure, but I want to know if my searching for a CE should go from "relaxed" to "panic panic".

    This is only supposition but I have to assume having the regenerated rachnai fleet, the krogan fleet, the geth fleet, and the migrant fleet buddies for being a goody goody paragon probably will offset whatever advantage the renegades have. Honestly glancing at the spoiler I thought it had to be something like that all along or the renegades would be at a serious manpower disadvantage.

    I kind of want two more saves but I don't know if I have it in me to do it. I want a neutral manshep who will essentially be a kind of..."what can I do to defeat the Reapers." So he'll be a mostly good soldier who tries to help people, but will sacrifice the Council at the end because he can't risk NOT killing Sovereign, and will keep the Collector base, just in case. There are probably other good renegade choices he could make.

    Been that way for awhile. Pre-ordering the CE was a money crunch decision around the holidays I put off, and then as I finally got out of my Skyrim haze they were gone... but who knows, maybe my local Best Buy will come through and have enough CE's to honor my pre-order.

    One thing I noticed was that Shadow Broker and Arrival offer very few actual choices. This is because the DLC is designed so ME3 can assume they happened either way with no major story ramifications! I dawned upon this realization when I was arguing with one of my friends who says "Paid DLC is dumb I shouldn't have to pay for things that are integral to the plot." Well, you're not paying for things that are necessary for the plot, you're paying for backstory, like an interactive novel, since it will happen no matter what.

    So, what I'm saying is, I think they'll be accounting for the content of the Shadow Broker DLC.

    Wow. My OVERLOAD favorite part of playing OVERLOAD an engineer is all of the OVERLOAD different abilities I typically OVERLOAD use in a multiOVERLOADplayer match. They all feel very OVERLOAD well balanced. OVERLOAD.

    Loving the multiplayer.
    OVERLOAD.

    Liara's actually the protagonist in ME3. The first mission after you escape Earth is her recruiting you.

    OVERLOAD.

    So totally this. It's just drone and overload spam. And it's oh-so satisfying. I think I found out that if I was part of the Milgram experiment, I would have tried cranking the voltage until it started arcing around the room.

    If we get to play as Liara in her snazzy new suit, I'm down.

    After which she spends 20 minutes sorting the reapers out as it's only a sidequest.

    No no no. Liara needs to find a way to defeat the Reapers and by god she's going to do it the only way she knows how. With archaeology.

    Krogan Soldier: the new Vanguard?

    You get 50% DR and can melee phantoms with impunity. It's great.

    Only one (so-so) skill that uses a cooldown as well, so you can rock as many weapons as you want. I have a bladed shotty, an avenger, and a mantis for atlases.

    EDIT: Can't wait to get the Krogun and the Widow.

    Damn it draft save, you have failed me. I swear that thing only saves things I don't want it to...

    Anyway; the extended trailer is awesome. I can see why they trimmed it down, but I did like the moments of soldiers fighting back while being overrun. The huskification was suitibly horrifying.

    Good rounds with various PA'ers last night. I imagine I'll probably save Bronze for random pubs while I level up lower classes.

    Silver and Gold? That shit is Forumer work.

    First they came for the Muslims, and we said NOT TODAY, MOTHERFUCKER!
