I've had ME for a while and haven't played it yet. I'm a bit embarrassed to say it with the sequel out now. I was trying to finish the novel before I started the game but I'm either gonna have to start speed reading or just skip it and start. After reading several reviews of the 2nd game I'm a bit excited to play the 1st. I want to see how my choices will effect the sequel. I've always wanted a developer to do that with a game which is why I was so interested in Fable but it seems this game really delivers.

Hey the Halo novels are some of the best reading I've ever enjoyed so I understand where your coming from. On a side note how are the Mass Effect novels?

I'll hook up the 360 tomorrow and fire it up. I've been itching to find a reason to finally play through this game.

Awesome, lol, I should have my copy in tomorrow as well. :)

I hear that the install helps load times, so you might want to consider that.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

I'm playing through ME1 too right now. I had been planning on buying the game for awhile, but I just ended up getting it about 2 weeks ago and I've been playing it quite a bit. I think I'm currently at about 22 or 23 hours into it.

I'm pretty sure I could run through and finish the game, but I'm doing all those side missions in order to get the Completionist achievement.

Once I clear the game, then I'm going to import my character into ME2 and play through that. Then I can go back to ME1 again and go for another play through on the harder settings and to get more of the accomplishments.

Installing is supposed to help reduce/eliminate some of the loading screens, though the elevators are hardcoded into the game, so those are the same.

I'm definitly going to install it, even if I only have a 20GB 360.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

I lost my savegames in a hard drive crash a couple of months back and I did consider playing through ME1 again to get some benefits and freshen up on the story.
Guess what? I couldn't bring myself to do it, the first one simply didn't do a good enough job at keeping me intrigued and excited (it had me bored to tears even, at times, especially the drab sidequests and immense loading times).
I'm currently playing ME2 on the PC and can't help but feel disappointed yet again, unfortunately.
Maybe I'll do them both in one run some day, to get the full story, the launch of the third one is probably as good an incentive as any but I do dread the day I'll be climbing up into the Mako again.

Well I finished it for the first time last weekend and loved it so much that I've only been really playing Mass Effect 2 since Monday and I'm already 20 hours into it.

I'm loving Mass Effect 2 so much that I'm going to go back through Mass Effect again and play Paragon this time (since I'm renegade now) and see how some other decisions plan out. 

My first full Mass Effect playthrough took me about 15 hours on easy, though now that I know more what's going on I could cut that down a lot.  I didn't many side quests in that playthrough though.  I'm going to read up on which ones affect Mass Effect 2 and do those if I can find a good list without Mass Effect 2 spoilers.



good for you!



Even if a sidequest doesn't get affect ME2 in a gameplay way, you usually at the very least get an email about it, explaining what happenend due to that decision over the past 2 years.

Actually, I'm pretty sure nothing affects the gameplay, but it makes a nice little illusion.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

I beat the game first on PC but lost my save. Found that game to be less fun on the second go round for 360. Go right ahead and play ME2. The save data transfer isn't fleshed out like you think it is.
