Anyone has any idea on when new DLC is coming to the Cerberus Network?

Thank God you don't have to do as much on the second playthrough.  You start out with a bajillion credits and 50,000 of each resource.  You won't be able to get every upgrade, just the ones you need (which is what I did my first playthrough anyway).

So my second playthrough I'm being a paragon sentinel (I'm picking the cheesy "paragon everytime" options in conversations...bleh).  Its a lot of fun, especially since I don't have to rely on Garrus or Miranda to take down shields and Warp can go around corners.

Warp is probably the most useful thing in the game.

Yeah, I considered not using Warp and using Reave instead, but you need points in Warp to get to Overload, and after playing with Magic Missile (aka Warp) a bit, I found I liked it despite Reave's vampiric tendencies.  I'm using Warp Ammo as my bonus power and its been a pretty good investment so far.

Has anyone noticed any bugs in the game so far?

Three times I've been stuck on an object while floating in mid air (I've had to load my previous save file to fix this) and Shepard didn't actually say anything when he was supposed to once (you could see his mouth moving and he got a response).

Yeah, ran into my first bug a few days ago.  I was recruiting Grunt, fighting a bunch of Blue Suns, and one of them had no health left, but was still standing, reacting to getting shot/punched, but wasn't shooting or anything.  Just sorta standing like a zombie.

The only one I've seen is one where Shepard's mouth moved but no audio came on.

Was it when you went to get the assassin, by any chance?

Also, just doing the loyalty missions at the moment (I've done 3).

I've come across the shepherd getting stuck on scenery glitch quite a few times. Whilst annoying its hardly a game breaker.

It certainly isn't but another bug I've come across is one where Shepard will just get stuck facing one way but can still shoot in the direction the crosshair is facing...even though the gun is not pointing that way :S

It fixes itself eventually but it's quite annoying how frequent these bugs are.

I have no idea why you're getting so many bugs. I can only think of one instance where a enemy went all zombie ish, and I couldn't hit him for a little bit. Beyond that, I can't think of any bugs I've come across, visual or otherwise.

Maybe you should get a Mac.

I hit two annoying bugs.

One, I got stuck on a piece of scenery and had to reload.

Two, during a firefight in the final mission, Shepard froze. I couldn't move or attack, but I could issue orders. My teammates killed the remaining guys so I saved, and reloaded and I was fine.

It's definitely not as bad as FO3, which I was playing right before I started ME2. I swear the game would crash pretty much every two hours or so. I've also had corrupt save games and numerous console freezes in FO3. Bethesda couldn't properly code a game to save their lives.

How are you guys getting so many bugs? I can't think of hitting a single glitch in FO3.

I didn't play Fall Out 3 for very long but I stopped playing because of a bug.

I got fucking locked in a room and couldn't get out and no one ever came into the room and I waited for ages. My previous save file was absolutely miles back so I was like: "Nope, fuck this, I'm not playing this game anymore" and switched off my Xbox. Rage.

I have Oblivion for the PC and that game is just as shittily coded as FO3 is. I stopped playing Oblivion because the game would crash whenever I fast traveled anywhere. I honestly don't know how Bethesda could release one patch that barely fixes anything while the members of the community have to release a fan patch to make the game stable. And even that doesn't totally fix things.

Bethesda are a bunch of incompetent fuckwits.

The only bug I came across in Oblivion was one where it would point to this rock outside of the city when the quest objective was actually back inside the city.

This happened on both the Xbox and the PC versions.

You're lucky, I've had nothing but problems with Bethesda games since Morrowind, and this is across two different PC's and an XBox. Granted Morrowind was fairly stable, but it had a lot more hiccups (especially relative to the enjoyment I got out of it) that most of the other games I played.

I had virtually no problems with any Bethesda game, and I've probably logged 500+ hours between Morrowind, Oblivion, and FO3.

That's odd.  As far as Fallout 3 is concerned, I got this really weird bug where the game was boring as hell.  ;)

ME2, on the other hand, there's a few spots where my characters likes to float up and get stuck.  Happens in the same two spots.  Aside from that, hasn't been too bad.

Yeah, I just can't work out why he floats up. It's very strange.

You must be lucky then. I enjoy Bethesda games (except the pos that is Oblivion) but they're ridden with bugs.
