Mass Effect 2 FTW???

Check this out for a taste http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0GfpxRfUs0 This game looks sweet.  Avail­able to us on Jan­u­ary 26th, this has the poten­tial to be a kick ass game.  For those boys at ING.com that had the chance to play through the 1st lev­el of the new game they point­ed out some notice­able improve­ments from the 1st.    The game is bet­ter, obvi­ous­ly, or they hope­ful­ly would not have tak­en the time to put togeth­er anoth­er one.  The com­bat style is redone, or ramped up, even the in game tuto­r­i­al shows you quick­ly how to take cov­er, the pow­er wheel, equip­ping and man­ag­ing weapons and giv­ing com­mands to squad mates.  Those that have played through the orig­i­nal will not feel out of their com­fort zone, and noo­bies (me includ­ed) will be quick­ly brought up to speed.  But then again this is a stan­dard in any game, to lessen the learn­ing curve of com­bat, speech, equip­ment ect, to get to the nit­ty grit­ty : )
A few new fea­tures are it now auto-regen­er­at­ing health sys­tem, heavy weapons as well as new skills to each class.  And the hack­ing games (I hat­ed in Fall­out 3) have been redone; one requires you to remem­ber which wire goes where, a mem­o­ry game.  I per­son­al­ly don’t real­ly care for this type of thing in games, some ppl love it though.  But I real­ly can’t say if it would be frus­trat­ing dur­ing game play or not, not until I am able to play the game.   Shep­ard (main char­ac­ter) has got him­self a new ship as well.  This has all the poten­tial to rock.  Some­thing neg­a­tive, they noticed that the way load­ing is han­dled leave some­thing to be desired, but wtf, noth­ing is ever per­fect with any game, right?  Any­way this game looks sweet and I will defi­ant­ly get my hands on this bad boy.

    This game looks total­ly sick. I can’t wait for it to come out. I don’t know if i am going to be able to buy it. Hope­ful­ly I will but I have oth­er oblig­a­tions unfor­tu­natly.

    This game indeed looks to be abun­dant with ass­kick­ery, Im cur­rent­ly play­ing through the first one again to get more done and have a more com­plete expe­ri­ence when I trans­fer my save game file to the sec­ond game. One thing that makes me super hap­py is they have two devel­op­ment teams mak­ing the 360 ver­sion and the PC ver­sion rather than make it port like they did the first, grant­ed it was a decent port which is hard to come by (i.e. turn­ing point, rise of the arg­onauts, etc.) but a fresh cod­ed specif­i­cal­ly for PC Mass Effect holds enor­mous ammounts of promise I think. 😀 Got my pre­order and cant wait 😀

    I am good friends with the Lead sound engi­neer for Mass effect 2, also he did Drag­on Age. Any­way, good man, good man love talk­ing to him and see­ing pic­tures from the office. Now that I gloat­ed into your face and showed you that I feel like I am bet­ter than you.. Just kid­ding i’m a strange guy. I have to say that this next install­ment from the “sound” side, is blow­ing my socks off. This is one game I will nev­er Down­load, as I know who get’s paid on this one. it’s ok when I don’t know the peo­ple behind the mag­ic!
