DAMN. 2 Gigs for a DLC?! I hear it's just a Fallout-style epilouge, though.

Had a dream they finally released Mass Effect 1 on the PS3 and I played all three games and had a f**king great time. I'm highly debating picking up at least 2 and 3.

ME1 ain't the hottest but it was my favorite. It's quite sloppy, though hands down the most interesting in terms of universe.

But there's no harm starting with ME2 since it doesn't have much of a plot, and ME3 basically flushes the narrative down the toilet after that. Just get to know the crew and have fun! Great shooters.


Mobius 1, engage...

I'm doing a whole series replay now, actually, after finishing ME3 in April. Mass Effect 1 was tremendously flawed, even back when it first released. It has a torturous save system and some very awkward, boring and downright unnecessary vehicle combat. Each of these was so bad at times I considered just putting the game down and going straight to ME2, which offers a download that let's you view a 15-minute movie that briefs you on ME1 and allows you to make all the important decisions in it. I highly suggest others to do this and start with ME2.

I'm currently on ME2, and I think I'm enjoying it a lot more than ME3. I still think there's plenty of interesting world to explore, and BioWare really understood what went wrong with the first game with this one. I'm hoping to wrap it up soon so I can give ME3 another playthrough before going into the Extended Cut. It's been a mostly fun series replay.

No! Bad Davila! Begone with you, foul beast!

ME3 feels like a distant memory. When did I play through that? March or something? I'm surprised how much such a disappointing ending affected my enjoyment of the game. Absolutely loved it my first time through but I just couldn't get into it on replay knowing what would eventually happen in the end. It's not unusual for games to have awful stories, but I think it just left a bad aftertaste considering how excellent the first two games did with narrative, game world and characterization. That and a combination of a sizable backlog of PS3 games and a looming Xenoblade release caused ME3 to gather dust on my shelf much sooner than ME2 ever did. I think what most people want is a simpler, predictable ending where the Reapers are destroyed/controlled and Shepard is hailed as the galactic hero/emperor with various "here's what happened to all the races/factions" messages. It would be nice if the DLC completely wrote out the goofy child-god-jesus-thing but the early rumors sound like it won't be changing the actual ending much.

Zipp - Just buy ME2 and play that for awhile. Watch the story for 1 on Youtube, import your choices with the comic in 2.
