Five Things You Shouldn't Do in Mass Effect 2

Just because Shepard can save the whole galaxy doesn't mean he can do everything. Here are just a few things you really shouldn't do.

I agree with the dancing. Jeez, Shepard... you're a war hero, and yet you couldn't find the time to learn something that doesn't make you look like an uninterested git on the dance floor?

I Agree about the fish, I mean seriously I've spent a freaking fortune on fish, just because they were cool to have in my Captain's Quarter. Though the best part is not having to feed, and instead just enjoy...The Space Hamster

At least if you romance Kelly, she feeds your fish for you.

There IS an automated fish feeding system built into the Normandy - It's called Yeoman Kelly Chambers. To bring it online, flirt with her every chance you get and eventually you can have her feed your fish (that just sounds wrong).

Oh God, that last one reminded me of a certain song...

AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!

*run awaaaaaaayy*

You know, if the Collectors just challenged Shepard to a dance contest for the fate of the galaxy, the game would be a alot shorter....

Whoa, whoa, whoa! "Kinda tragic" is an understatement of the century.

It would have been funny if they gave you a different set of dances depending on your race. You go with white skin, you get the finger snap, you go with black and you do break dancing or something.
But yeah, having to go upstairs just to feed my fish constantly pissed me right off.

I forgot to feed my fish....sad face.

I melee krogans all the time! Just gotta soften them up a bunch first. >.>

Of course, just as I got all thwack-happy, the game threw a bunch of exploding bugs at me. Don't melee those.

My question is: Why doesn't the frickin' space hamster starve? You don't feed it yet it's a live and kicking all through to the end.

What the hell is that thing living on?

No spoilers in the main part of the video (well, except for some super weapon I may obtain at some time), but I had the impression the intro part did contain some spoilerific stuff... I'm not sure though, since I closed my eyes after the first hint there were cinematics from further ahead in the game than I currently am.

Oh well, guess that teaches me for looking for MassEffect 2 content, but not wanting anything spoiled. :)

I meleed a Krogan and lived!

Although only because I followed it up by frying him with the Particle Ray.

I'm a Vanguard, I headbutt krogans for a living!

5. i have fuel?
4. but its fun... till i die QQ
3. I HAVE FISH?!?!?!... oh yea. i have fish :D... wait... THEY ARE PROBABLY DEAD!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!
2. it looks fun to fire indoors, as long as you stand behind something... >.>
1. BUT I HAS TEH NEW HOTNESS DANCE MOVE

I think what we all need to take away from this lesson is that it is a 'Miniature Giant Space Hamster' named Boo. GO FOR THE EYES!

I am guilty about the fish thing...lol

And great list Susan! =D

Bioware wants to preserve the spirit and memory of Boo, I would guess.

Utter and complete awesomeness.

OT: imma want dat big gun o.o.

The Cain is the only gun since Doom that gave me that warm, fuzzy, giggly, "I just fuckslapped the fuck out of that fuck" that the BFG gave me. Some have come close, but none have matched it.

Apparently, I was too busy playing with my ship model toys to notice there was a fish tank.
I don't think Miss Chambers will have to bother feeding them anymore.
This puts me in a difficult position though. Use the restroom to flush them through, or press them in a little cube and vent them with the waste disposal system.

"I've had enough of your disingenuous assertions!"

Now I'm looking forward to the "spoilerific stuff you have to do" video. Nice call on no.1! XD

I think I used the Cain only twice in my playthrough, and it kinda felt like cheating, against two of if not the strongest bosses in the game, and it chipped away almost 3 1/4 of their life bar.

edited and removed the spoiler tag which contained the names of the bosses, I apologize to anybody I might have ruind the surprise to.

my bad.

That's not much of a spoiler tag if it's on the exact same line.

The Spelljammer campaign setting described them as giant hamsters bred to paddle wheels for flying ships, which can alternatively be bred in miniature form, looking like a normal hamster. But imagine that you had to feed these hamsters to keep them paddling, then you might as well buy regular fuel to power your ship, instead of hamster food, right?

And Minsc would be very, very upset if Boo would starve to death.

I didn't know i have to feed the fish. I rarely go to my quarters anyway. I hope they are not dead by now! :(

Indeedie - he's possibly the whit-ist dancer I've ever seen. And I'm white and can't dance!

As for the fish, I think you can get Kelly to feed them if your nice enough to her, but yeah, an automatic fish feeder should have been included.

I'm not sure if its a bad thing that my own style of dancing rather closely resembles Commander Sheppard's... Maybe I just shouldn't dance either...

Yea...my fish died pretty easy and i never bought another. i love being an infiltrator, sniperrific

Another thing not to do is to not hug Tali... seriously, if you don't hug Tali when the time arises then you will feel like a complete douche-baggin' shit fuck forever.

I've done all of those things! :D

I even killed the Krogan before his bastard little Vorcha mate got me!

That trailer was released before ME2 was on the store shelves. There's absolutely nothing spoilerific about it in regards to the story of the game. Nothing.

Not bad video, I guess. But the fish thing is easily avoidable, and if you move in to melee a krogan to death then you deserve to get a CMF.

What about the MIRV in fallout 3? That thing was nasty.
