Mass Effect 2...

Recommended Posts

You bastard haha.. I hope the game is long enough that you aren't finished by the time I get mine.. I could spend that time rushing through ME1 for a refresher and saved game....

 

 

I just checked the ME2 wiki and you should be pleased to know it also lists the US date as the 26th.. So looks like your set..

no.. the only thing u keep is the choices u make..u can still change the class and what u look like..

 

 

its better running of the saved games because it makes more sense lol i was glad i saved the council :P and kept anderson on the council..

 

 

the biggest change about this game is the way u find minerals on planets and fly through all the galaxys..u actually need petrol lol.. and when u find things like safes and documents/locked doors u need to do these memory test instead of the ME1 get to the middle mini game lol

Ok an Important bit of info, if you guys wish to start preloading no matter what region the game is about 11GB and you have to type the following into windows explorer and hit enter, it will bring up the install box for the game regardless of its current state.

 

steam://install/24980

 

you won't see it downloading but trust me its downloading.

After you finish downloading it, can i buy a steam backup of Mass Effect 2 off you?

 

I can't really spare the download pain of steam.

Err.. won't this cause issues down the road?

 

If steam doesn't think it's downloading.. but it *is* downloading.. then.. what happens when you go to unlock the thing?

 

Wonder if it'll screw up the pre-load / unlock process?

the correct files are showing up in the ME2 install directory for me, all it is doing is downloading the game as per usual you just circumvent the North America only pre load that is in place atm.

 

I did a similar thing yesterday, I copied an actual install of COD MW2 into a folder in steam instead of doing the whole steam backup thing and it worked perfectly.

Steam is surprisingly robust like this.

 

If any of these tricks don't work straight away, deleting ClientRegistry.blob normally fixes it.

Can I ask preemptively anyone who gets the retail version of the game or lives in a country where you can play it ect to not post anything related to story or spoilers (unless they are in spoiler tags of course) I have been waiting so long for this game and don't want to read such and such does this ect and have it ruined for me (and others).

lol I just want to know if there will be lesbian action so I know if I should keep my blond bombshell character from ME1! :-P

 

 

Also I like to play my RPGs with a walkthrough. Makes things easier cos I hate missing out on interesting items or cool plot scenes. -_-

Haha I'm joking and I also agree with you chances are due to time constraints I wont get a chance to play this game for another week so I will be the last of the lot of you to find out the fate of the universe..

Thanks for the heads up dude.

 

Just showed up as "Pre-load Complete" in Steam.

 

The odd thing is my quota hasn't be thrashed either... which would mean internodes already got a copy on their local servers?

 

Maybe that's part of the reason for the delay? To give the mirrors time to replicate the game files?
