The dancing in mass effect one was so much better.

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?

Hey! It's a heavy suit!

It may be great for absorbing incoming enemy fire and the occasional tech/biotic blast, but damned if it doesn't impede on your flexibility when you need it most.

Edit:

For a patch, they should add some penalties to running out of gas and being stuck by the side of the interstellar freeway like a bunch of irresponsible idiot roadtrippers.
Instead of getting a free pass to the nearest fuel depot, you should have to call up some kind of emergency road space-side assistance and get towed there, for a hefty fee of course.
And if you're feeling cheap you could always refuse that service and sit around waiting for your oxygen supply to run out so you can come back the "long way" like in the beginning.

I like to melee Krogans. It's like dealing with a charging bull, only he can shoot you too. I'm also the one that likes to get his kicks in video games any way he can, even if it means multiple deaths.

What can I say? I'm easily amused like that. ^^;

I have to say it:

I lol'd

I haven't played the game yet, so I want to know if your old crew is dead or Shepard just left them for the new crew of deliquents.

Sentinels can melee a krogan if the use their extra shield. I melee them all the time.

Heck I melee everything because my gun isn't so good.

FastFoot92:
The #1 thin you shouldnt do in Mass Effect 2 is Mornith

Can I get a high five?

Oh go on then. *high five* It made it that much more funny when the words "CRITICAL MISSION FAILURE" came on. I'm inclined to say don't drink the "mystery drink", but its effects are too damn awesome.

Ok everybody! It's time to do THE SHEPARD! Just shuffle from side to side in awkward and embarrassing fashion! It's so cool and everyone in the club will take notice of your sexy dance moves!

Seriously, I know the dancing isn't integral to the game, but they could at least give Shepard some better moves in the sequel.

Or at least change from his combat armor and weapons to his casual clothes. I think 1/2 of what makes it so awkward is the outfit.

In Samara's loyalty mission you get to dance sans armor... it's still really awkward and embarrassing looking, the best part is that one of the dialogue options here is "I'm a good dancer" which Bioware didn't quite have the smarm to label with "(Lie) I'm a good dancer".

That would've been SO AWESOME. :D

I constantly melee krogan. Let's hear it for soldiers oooh-rah!

Heh, I played a Vanguard, every time a Krogan wound up for a charge I said "I can do that too!" and sent 'em flying with my own charge attack.

I like the Singularity gun from the preorder dlc. Nothing says "I laugh at your attempts to hide" more than a black hole. Just wish it didnt have that orange tint to it.

Dancing, yeah, the girls on the floor know how to mix it up. Shepard's dance skills are like..., well, don't quit your day job there. GTA had a DDR style minigame for dancing, maybe something like that could have helped. Get yo funk on with some glo-sticks.

God, I thought I was in a large room when I first used the Cain. Not large enough...

Situation: Team dead. Medigel depleted. Surrounded by Krogan and Vorcha. Out of thermal clips. One option. Bash party.

I won't lie. This legitimately happened to me. I won.

Crap. I should have watch this video before playing ME2. Because I did all of thoose things :( Execpt running out of fuel.

Couldn't agree more with the not dancing part, the first time I let him dance I facepalm'd... for one hour straight.

lockeslylcrit:
I agree with the dancing.

He could dance way better in the first one, now he just looks like an idiot.

Thank god for Kelly, fish never die. I named my hamster Boo.

hehehe remember to feed the fish. Always important thing to remember

I forgot the fish thing too, I think everyone will. The story is so good you forget to do something.

I thought this was relevant.

Omikron009:
I forgot to feed my fish....sad face.

I didn't even know you had to feed your fish...

I was wondering what that smell was.

when she said you might as well have bfg on the side of the cain i had n idea wtf that meant (sad i know)then i paused the video and googled it and found out and lmao.

I had bought every single fish and they just died when I forgot to feed them after

The only thing I disliked about this game.

Who thought it was a good idea to melee Krogan? I try and keep as far away from those things as possible (cryo ammo works pretty well against them though...)

Internet Kraken:

HT_Black:
Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm not), but wasn't there a renegade option where you headbutted a Krogan chief? Moreover, didn't shepard both karate kick and subsequently punch out a Krogan mercenary on Omega?

'Cause I know he did when I played.

Krogan seem to suffer from cut-scene weakness. Normally they are a forced to be reckoned with, but in cut-scenes they can easily be dispatched with a single bullet.

Something I think you should never try to do is use the Flamethrower heavy weapon from the DLC. It has so many problems. The first being that it's a short range weapon. If an enemy gets up close to you, you can whip out a shotgun or SMG quickly to deal with the new threat. But if you try to switch to the flamethrower you'll waste to much time switching weapons, resulting in you getting killed. So you can only use it for offense. But because it's a close range weapon, you have to walk up to the enemy and get riddled with bullets along the way. But even when you are close to an enemy, it still sucks because Shepard is knocked back when he takes melee, flame, or explosive damage. So trying to use it in close range usually just causes you to be knocked around a few times before dying.

Because if you're a Vanguard you get the Charge ability that closes the distance instantly and smashes the guy you aim at across the room. When fully upgraded it can also either:
A) Knock down all enemies in a wide radius.
B) Become super powerful and have the 'Adrenaline Rush' slowdown effect for about a second after you collide.

When you combine this with the Flamethrower you can tear apart most enemies, especially mecernary groups who don't have Flamethrowers of their own. I've ripped through a squad of five soldiers in one go using this tactic.

It's simple. the hamster doesn't starve because it's a SPACE hamster, i.e. it's magic. And as for fuel, you should have to wait to get towed back to a fuel depot while your crew harangues you because they TOLD you the gas tank was nearly empty but nooo you had to press on and they most certainly will not be paying to be towed. And then the tow-ship driver laughs at you. It'd probably be hilarious the first time, an afterward you'd definitely avoid letting it happen again.

The person narrating this video sounds like a Salarian.

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

Agreed. This should be awesome... been waiting for days now!

I have to agree with regard to dancing (yeesh . . . no, Shepard, just . . . no.) and the fish. How does it work that the single most powerful AI in the known galaxy--one, I might add, which is capable of working the entirety of the Normandy on its own while calculating firing solutions and dodging space-station-sized debris--can't spare a few processes every now and then to feed my frakkin' fish!? Those little bastards are pricey and annoying as hell to replace.

wHOA whoa whoa whoa.

Don't melee a krogan? WHY NOT? I've killed many krogan this way. Of course, this was right after Charging them, but still.

Dammit, too late...I already danced...

Really? Really? Are your sure... and if so Why? I was pretty sure they were the same.

wheres 5 things you should do?
