Just beat Mass Effect 2 and, although I could easily just post this in the Official Video Game thread, felt the need to start a new thread because at the moment I'm overwhelmed by how awesome the final mission was.

My only criticism of the game is that the story seemed non-existent up until the end. Yea, it was there in the background but it wasn't like the first game where every second you felt like you were part of something big, and the game constantly reminded you about it. Otherwise, it's better than the first game in every conceivable way. It'll be interesting to see how the first game holds up when I play it next. Don't know when that will be - could be in a month, could be in the summer, could be in a year (nah, I'm too big a fanboi for that).

**Spoilers on ending** Jack died - I basically sent her to her death because she wasn't loyal to me and I was worried if I kept her with me something bad would happen, so I sent her away with the survivors. Used Tali in the shaft and Garrus leading the other team to start. Samara for the barrier and Garrus leading the other team after. Chose to destroy the base.


dude, your game ended exactly like mine.

Playing the first Mass Effect and it's too goddamned hard.  I just left the Citadel and am up to exploring on my own now.  I can't get anywhere or do anything half the time and when I do land on a new planet I die pretty much everywhere I go.  What am I doing wrong?

1) Make sure you always look for items in crates, safes, etc. Good items are more important than leveling up.

2) Make sure when you level up, you focus on specific talents. Don't worry about making your Shepard balanced.

3) Especially early in the game, use lots of Unity. Also remember the Mako has a cannon (press RB). And hide a lot.

Biotics are your friend.  If anything, use your biotics before resorting to conventional weaponry.

I don't even know how to use biotics lol.  I feel like the game just throws you in without explaining how to do any of the cool things.

The Geth things in the garage at peak 15 are killing me in seconds... I have no idea what I'm doing wrong...

As far as reading the book goes... can't.  I have all my games at school in a CD binder so I don't have any of the original cases with me.

WTF are you talking about?!?!?!

Did you even level up?!?! Have you change any of the weapons and armors?!?!

Are you a n00b?!?! (Rhetorical question)

What the hell are you doing man?  Maybe you accidentally put it at the highest difficulty?  I mean jeez man, unless you're charging into skirmishes like Master Chief, there's no way you should be dying this much.

Eh, I don't know.  I feel like a total n00b, but I put the game down for awhile so I pretty much forgot to play and now I'm having a really tough time.  I'm playing as an infiltrator, but a friend recommended I restart as soldier.

Plus, for some reason I couldn't even afford to buy ANY new weapons and armors.  I feel like I missed out on something the first couple hours in.

Just finished the game on Insanity.  That was fun.

Anyway, if you haven't heard yet, we have some new vehicle-based DLC coming next month and a new weapon coming sooner.

The Hammerhead assault vehicle is coming to the Cerberus Network in late March!

Free to all Cerberus Network members, the Firewalker pack includes 5 all new missions featuring the Hammerhead. Hovering over the battlefield at up to 120 kilometeres per hour, the Hammerhead also boasts a guided missile system ensuring accuracy even during aggressive maneuvering.

Additionally we will be revealing a new heavy weapon available to all Cerberus Network members very soon. Stay tuned for more info on this new addition to the Mass Effect 2 arsenal, coming this month!
