Started playing “Mass Effect” again so I can max out a character and then import it to “Mass Effect 2” in anticipation of . . . . Well at least that is what I had been doing until Sean dropped off his subwoofers, fargin bastage.
Originally I was planning to just power through it to gain levels but very quickly I got into the story again and started playing along. Usually I don’t ever replay a story based game but I’m actually enjoying this more the second time through. Mostly because I know I don’t need to drive the Macco to every corner of ever planet. This actually makes the Macco sooooo much more fun the mining planets. They guy that came up with that one should get spaced. OTOH I still hate mini-games and for some reason the decryption game is kicking my butt. Well at least until I got some omni-gel built up.
Another plus is I figured out that since I usually take the same two NPCs those are the only ones I really need to keep well equipped which saves a lot of time sorting through inventories.
I also realized that just using a pistol is simpler since I can just blast away even while on the move and usually not worry about overheating.
Learning my way around the citadel again was a bit of a pain because the arrow doesn’t always point you where you really want to go. I’m also finding I like the elevator better than the newer graphic. Lean back angle the camera straight up and spin the image real fast. I’m not prone to motion sickness but I can’t do it for a whole ride w/o feeling a bit queasy.
