PlasticTree:
A choose-your-own starter? As in, you can choose what Shepard did in ME1, or as in, there is simply one start-option for beginners where Shepard made choices that Bioware thinks are the best for enjoying the game?

The former. The important choices can be made by you without having to play ME1.

"The M Rated Content was most titillating". Your wit, good sir, cuts like a knife.

But seriously, from the way EA is milking the marketing for ME2, it's looking like an interglactic badass shootout fuckfest. It seems that trying to make a BioWare game "sexier" is a running theme for them.

I think developers should make there games more mature. I mean don't make a game thats entirely porn, thats for the japs to do, but Mass Effect was really grown up with their romance plot.

I completely agree with you. I really liked the romancing in ME1. However, you should look up what EA is doing marketing-wise with ME2. Take a look at the newest unveiled character: Subject Zero.

Now maybe it's the direction that BioWare wants to take it in, but I feel EA's heavy hand behind this.

Well I mean thats actually pretty realistic, there are girls like Ashly and then there are girls where the conversation starts with a Hi and ends up a few minutes later in a bed, Subject Zero. But I feel even with Subject Zero's attitude Bioware will make it deeper than that.

Yeah, I get the feeling she'll be more deep than she seems. No doubt we'll be treated to an entire analysis of the insecurities at the root of her blustering, and she'll turn out more sympathetic.

Awesome, thanks a lot for that. Have been looking around for info like that for quite a while.

You know what I really like about the character creator in Mass Effect?
I looked at the comic and immediately thought: "Thatīs not commander Shepard, he looked totally different" :-)

swaki:
really classy, didn't stop me from giggling like a school girl though.

Shouldn't feel bad, everyone does it.

everytime someone says Commander Shepard i think of the protagonist from Opposing Force, who was cooler anyway

Ah, but remember, Adrian Shephard was a Corporal, not a Commander.

Y'see, Shamus, I keep track of what attitude each of my characters have by way of naming. For example, my good character in Fallout 3 was Daniel "Don't Call Me Danny" Lupiero, because nobody ever names a bad guy Danny, right? However, the bad girl of the Capital Wasteland I played on my second playthrough was named Alisha "Sin" Sincavage, because thinking of a heavily-armed and leather-clad woman who calls herself "Sin" makes me happy in my happy places.

...I'm sorry, what were we talking about again?

I did the same thing. I have 2 saves: one male, one female. (Hey, I don't own ME, I rented it once or twice.) I named my goodie-goodie Adrian (Accidental reference to HL:OF's protagonist. I meant to reference the C&C guy.), and my female engineer... something else.

Hey, it's been a while, OK?

Metro is a cool character...

Another great After Curfew Shamus! Looking forward to more Metro.
