    Even though I have plenty of work ahead of me, I went out to Best Buy yesterday and picked up a copy of ME2.

    I freaking loved ME1, and just about anything BioWare puts out, and couldn't wait any longer.

    And OH MY GOD...

    I'm playing on a desktop, 3.0ghz quad core, 2 4850 ATI Cards, and at 1600x1200 on a 22" screen. I wasn't able to run the shadow video options, but can run AA at x8.

    The game is stunning, the carbon fiber suit you wear has more details than most games have in an entire screen!

    The one thing I see that changed a lot with ME2 from ME1, was how there's not a lot of the typical RPG grinding like there was in the last one.

    No running around doing the same things, just on different worlds, or at least not yet.

    Anyways, I can't wait to get off work, so I can play again!

    It's bullshit I still have a day job I know, I'm working on it though!

    Do you guys have plans to buy it/did you already buy it?

    Anyone like it as much as I do, or should I be an ashamed fanboi?:eek:

    Good graphics equals Best Game Ever? Stunning review there, Sherlock.

    Best game of the past decade was either Mass Effect 2 or Dragon Age: Origins.

    Yeah it's definitely solid. I'm also having the problem of not being able to focus at work because I'm busy thinking about getting home to my sweet sweet Mass Effect haha.

    Big weekend coming up. Lots of Mass effect.

    Maybe not best game ever, but a contender for game of the year.
    Keep in mind that 2010 might possibly be the biggest year in the history of gaming..literally.

    Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2, God of war 3, Final fantasy XIII, Final fantasy XIV (possible), Halo Reach (possible), Alan Wake, Star Wars the Old Republic, Gran Turismo 5

    and a HUGE huge IF....we are lucky... Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3.

    If he likes the first, the 2nd is a MUST.

    Make sure you wait to give it to him until right after he beats the first one.

    He'll be so shocked and happy, he'll probably pee his pants:cow_yello

    I have ME1 for the Xbox 360 but stopped playing it awhile ago but when I head the second one was coming out I popped it back in (started from the beginning). I wanna beat ME1 first.

    Also did they change the crappy controls for vehicles in ME2?

    Me either, you get to toot around in the new Normandy in the galaxy map, but it's 2d.

    Haven't had full control of a vehicle yet?

    no vehicles that I know of.

    ME2 is good, but they took away a lot of the classic RPG elements of ME1 or any RPG for that matter.

    they streamlined the combat and expanded the story and universe though as part of the trade off. armor is still pretty customizable.

    I finished the game last night, my thoughts were "That was a great movie" It was definitely fun, but it didn't feel too much like a game to me, more like an interactive movie.
