The Escapist Presents: Five Things You Shouldn't Do in Mass Effect 2

Couldn't Shepard dance a lil' bit in Mass Effect 1?

Besides, he's ironic dancing :P

He has the fat man dance, where you just kinda shake rhythmically in place.

I take it you feed the fish between every mission and you don't have to feed them more than once between missions.

Loving the game so far.

Susan, I do have a question: Are there any really suprising spoilers in ME2? By suprising I mean in the sense of the original KoTOR where the entire outlook of the game shifts because of one unknown detail about your character's past circumstances that color the rest of the game. Are there any "Luke, I am your Father."-type moments?

The original Mass Effect didn't quite have that level of reveal to it, it was more of a "These insignificant details in the beginning of the game really meant something down the road."

It's never been a good idea to melee a Krogan!

...unless of course you are playing on easy in which case it is still somewhat inadvisable

Excellent. You should make a series out of this, Susan.

"5 things not to do in ______!"

The dancing is hilarious. The best part is the conversation with the random lady in the VIP lounge on Omega. Priceless.

There are a few twists that are only really noticeable if you played the first game and remember the overall plot pretty well. Nothing akin to the epic KOTOR twist, but then again BioWare has never really come close to anything like that since.

VyperX:
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. :)

Don't worry, I've unlocked the Cain and I only played for like... 6 hours or so.

Spectre39:
"I've had enough of your disingenuous assertions!"

You know, for such a pretentious line, that was followed with such a badass/dickhead action.

lockeslylcrit:
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?

Well it added to the immersion for me since Shepard is about as skilled in the art of dance as I am. ><

I dunno...Shepard still looks like a loser on the dance floor, but it seems to me like he's improved since Mass Effect 1.

I mean...at least now he's shuffling from one side to the other...

Myrph:
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...

No, it's a good thing. It means someday, you too can save the universe. Seriously-bad dancing is one of the genetic trade-offs for badassery and leadership.

Congrats to you.

I'm an intergalactic war hero - saved the universe numerous times (of course you don't know it yet).

But noone can stop me groovin' to my beat. Oh yeah... I like to shake it, baby.

That was awesome.
I have to agree about the krogan thing, though I learnt that the hard way in ME1

Daystar Clarion:
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.

True. i find it funny, i mean, hte mission before that i snaped a merc's neck and then droped a crate on his pals while the only surviver looked like he shit his pants, then i give Tali a hug. I think Shepard is bypolar.

I come out of semi-retirement JUST to say...

That Susan's Shepard looks almost exactly like mine... odd...

I feed my fish regually :)
Also, i dance like that when im complety drunk and cba lol

5. What brilliant numbnuts would forget to buy enough fuel when they're exploring ...
4. Well, what a surprise. You'd think that one of the strongest and most violent races would just let you slap them silly?
3. I've got Kelly. She feeds my fish while I'm gone and I don't want to bother with any space rodents in my cabin.
2. If it's a Heavy Weapon, you know you shouldn't be near the explosion when you hit something.
1. You know what? Shepard is such a badass that he can dance the Chicken Dance and still retain his coolness.

I just parried this entire list. God, that felt awesome.

Agreed! You really SHOULD NOT DANCE. EVER. I saw this and thought "hey, dance? Sounds fun, let's see what it looks like when Shepard shakes his boo-... no no no no no no no STOP"

Is it tragic that I dance like Shepard?

I only used the Cain once, against the Geth Colossus thingy. Oh, and on my first play-through I used it

that killed me dead.

Sentinels (like it says in the game) are neigh on invincible, biotic push with the area of effect upgrade at level 4 is amazing, swarmed by husks, push, BOOM! All gone. got myself the assault rifle training to, and power tech shield, tank just evolved!

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?

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

Pardon my stupidity, but who/what is Boo?

I once fired the Cain in close quarters...

I was trying to figure out how to fire the damn thing, then I thought I may need to charge it. I did, and I and everything around me exploded...

Not bipolar, it's just that Tali is so damn hard not to like. Her and Garrus are my favs.

It's a reference to Baldur's Gate. There was a character who had a pet hamster named Boo. He claimed that Boo was a "miniature giant space hamster", which is another reference back to the AD&D campaign Spelljammer.

yea, speeking of that, am i the only one a little weirded out by the fact garrus is a love intrest?

Nah, Garrus is probably the only guy on the team that my badass FemShep trusts 100%...

He's the only logical choice.

Why can't you just let the fish die? Saves a fortune and lets you not have to worry about it.

actually for everybody commenting on Sheperd dancing, take a closer look at the dance floor and you can see that all of the male NPCs dance the same way, doesn't make it less horrifying to watch, but it might be some new intergalactic law against dancing with style that we people of the past cannot understand... yet?! *shiver*

The #1 thin you shouldnt do in Mass Effect 2 is Mornith

Can I get a high five?

Learned about fish the hard way, but that was nowhere close to how fast you can melee in game. It is a good idea to not even try to melee or shotgun though, you don't want them close to you at all.

Wait, so the hamster is Boo?

It doesn't matter if it's Male Shepard or Female Shepard, they both dance like they are on heavy depressants. At least the female NPCs add variety.

Alex_P:
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.

-- Alex

why not? you can just go invisible afterwards and not find cover :P
(yeah i like hitting stuff then bailing out by going invis)

Do the Shepard everybody!
Also, I am sure I was not the only person who routinely beat Krogan to death as guns are for wusses.

No, you're bad and you should feel bad.

No high five for you.

Ah yes, feeding the fish. I didn't do that, I sorta just let them die followed by purchasing new ones. It's a good thing I was able to get Yeoman Chambers to feed them before deciding I was bored with her and switching romance choices.

I was able to win a Melee fight with a Krogan once, of course the Krogan may have been under fire from my squad at the time.

SPOILER WARNING!!!!!
