:rotfl: I have a feeling this thread is going to be a very odd reading experience over the next week.

I'm undecided whether to start from scratch or use my ME1 save.

Any advice welcome as I'd rather not play as the class I used before but I'd rather try and do the game in one run-through...

While I have a level 60 Shepard, I am using my level 40 first. Seeing how it was my first ME save game.

Only? How I wish I wasn't limited to a 20GB with 9 Gig free, Faster load times and no noise from a spinning disk I think

How many discs is ME2 on? I was reading a review at lunchtime (a PC mag BTW) and it specifically said " installation discs" - ie, plural...

Use your ME1 save if you're interested in seeing the results of some of the choices you made in the first game.

Gutted, Just went to play it to discover that the plastic clips holding the games in place are all broken, and have trashed all the bonus DVD and Disk 1, Can't get it replaced since you were ment to pre-order it to get it apparently :mad:

Not happy.

Why not contact the manufacturer to express your disappointment? As you have a LE version, that would be my first port of call if the LE was no longer available.

If you start with a level 60 character from ME1 you will start ME2 with that character at level 5.

One achievement is to play the game twice or play once using an imported character from ME1.
So if you intend to do one run-through you are going to have to use an import.

Has anyone played and completed Mass Effect Galaxy for the iPhone? I have completed it and it says that my reward is waiting for me in Mass Effect 2 but I can't see a download to it anywhere.

Any ideas?

Mine's waiting for me at home but from what I could see of the start of the game from the preview...
(commence spoiler)
The games picks for you which one is alive. It assumes you chose the love interest so Ashley is alive if you're male, that drip Kaiden if you're female. Personally I was playing as a woman and didn't put any potential love interest before the fate of the galaxy. I had no hesitation in sacrificing Kaiden after he turned down the offer of a threesome with Liara and Doris
 
My girlfriend is awesome. She's offered to drive me to my local Tesco to pick up a copy and some beer at midnight tonight, what a legend.

Rang the store and they confirmed they are selling from midnight on, so anyone else its worth checking if you don't fancy waiting till tomorrow.

Does anyone know what the price will be at Asda or Morrisons over the weekend? I'm gutted that I missed the £30 offers that were around a couple of weeks ago.

whats this game all about? is it a shooter?

its an RPG with combat elements that involve shooting and some tech powers. I have to say having played this game today, the shooting and combat has been massively improved over the first game. The cover and targeting system now has a feel similar to GTA IV and Gears of War, its extremely satisfying.

The game itself is nothing short of awesome, totally immersive and atmospheric like nothing I ever played before, it feels like a sequel to a film thats had its budget multiplied (think alien vs aliens, or terminator vs T2, the originals are classics but its that rare case of the sequel nailing the first) this game grips from the opening set peice.

P.S. anyone having issues with save file transfer from their first game, I had no files detected and the same was true for a mate I have in the US?
