Mass Effect was the first game that actually made me rationalize my moral decisions. It wasn't killin' granny, it was killin' granny to make the world better.

I just loved the world.  It wasn't about humans mingling with aliens, but a community of aliens and humans together.  We were actually aliens too in this game.  And I loved how it started as time had pasted and humans had integrated themselves in a galactic society beyond the "oooh, aliens!".

I actually squeed when I was able to overhead a Salarian and human woman having a normal conversation about work.  I know it seems very mundane, but it was a common scene in an amazing view.  I hope to see moments like that and then some in the sequeal.

I already pre-ordered and I am waiting for tomorrow midnight to bring my copy home. 

My friends have actually made fun of my obession.

They say stuff like, "You put the disc in your 360 and it red rings."  Grrrrrr!!!!

And then they come up with this scenario of me being cast away on an island like Tom Hanks except the plane is full of copies of Mass Effect 2.  I end up building a raft out of the cardboard boxes and game cases.  My rope is the tape that held the boxes shut and the beach ball friend is a mint copy of Mass Effect 2 of which I speak to Shepard's face.

"We got to leave soon, Shepard."

"I know we need more rope, Shepard."

The sail has the Alliance Logo on it.

Mass Effect 2 copy falls in the ocean and I scream, "SHEPARD!!!!!!"

I hate those guys.

That is possibly the funniest Castaway parody I have every read!

"Shepard! What do we do now!"

Too funny.

They came up with some other stuff.

I'm stuck on an island with a huge shipment of Mass Effect 2 copies, but NO 360.  So I tried to build one with parts of the plane as they wash up and when I have a mockery of a x-box 360 together, a whole one washes up on shore.  Then I realize, there is no tv.

I'm in a cave and I paint pictures of the Mass Effect cast on the walls.

One thing that people haven't mentioned, which I think is somewhat underrated, is the music in that trailer. O_O  It's really good, considering the epic nature of the story the game is telling.  Does anyone know who the composer for ME2's score is?

I don't know, but I've always thought that the music in that game was awesome too.

I'm wondering if there's anywhere around here I can buy it at midnight. But I think I'm going to try to rent it before I buy it. I'll probably beat it within the time it takes for the rental to be up anyway.

I don't think so! I got it, and it's two freaking discs! I opened it and nearly had a happy stroke. Just from the shear amount of main-story quests I've got in my journal already nine or so, I think you're in for the long haul.

Played my first couple of hours, and it is awesome!  I can guarantee that I will already play through a second time, just to see what will happen if I make different choices.  Oh, and nothing makes you feel like a bigger badass than taking down a gunship with a grenade launcher. :D

I really really really doubt that. I'm like 27 hours into the game. (had to stop to save wear on my xbox and the fact that both my powercells are DEAD)

Mwahahaha. 37 hours into the game and counting. I really do waste too much time scanning planets though.

Dude... something I've always wanted from the first game happens in this one. Awesome.

It is absurdly easy to get renegade points again (though I'm hedging ahead with paragon ahead of renegade)

FUN Note..

Some of the level 4 powers are OMFGWTF?? awesome. Had one guy's power REALLY pay off at level 4. :D Most of them are like that or really helpful for character or party defense/offense.

Concussive Shot is probably my favorite "new" power.  It's just so helpful to be able to stagger a powerful enemy so you can just lay into them without worry of being shot at in return.  Oh, and heavy weapons... :D  I never knew how much they helped until I took down a heavy mech with about 4 good shots.

Hmm.. let's see the level 4's I like so far.

-Overload (both versions are good), you get a 'let's drop all grunt synthetics bunched together' or the 'BOOM' on one.
-Incinerate: Heavy Burn =  bye-bye to most middle level or lower guys in one shot.
-Warp (group version).. another 'black hole' attack. :D
-Adreneline Surge: a 70% increase in speed and an amazing recharge time equal a save my butt tactic. Used it to dodge missles, acid spit and a few other things.
