    The age of gaming is starting to soar high. 2010 will definitely be a age for gaming to become AWESOME. Mass Effect 2 + Final Fantasy 13 = What life?

    Nice to see the Illusive Man after his introduction in Mass Effect: Ascension. From what I saw, there were ten squad positions: Grunt Subject Zero The Drell whose name I can't remember. Human male Human female Asari Tali There's still three open spots. Here's hoping one of them is Legion!!

    So, from what I can guess, Shep actually died and then was revived as a cyborg. That's just an educated guess, but it makes sense when he talks about how Shep changes and the image shown of him along with it.

    so... you know how the save game from mass effect one effects story and such in mass effect 2? does that mean that one would have to go back and unlock all the endings in 1 to unlock all the endings in 2? and the same for 3? anyways, looks amazing. i hope one of those consequences that happens later wont be the death of a character. i shit myself when i accidentally killed wrex!

    I can not wait for this game. Seriously, I'm in the process of building a time machine that will allow me to go into the future and get this game. =P

    I have my reservations about this game. Subject Zero looks terrible, I'm still not sure about the ammo/thermal clip system and the whole Renegade Shepard marketing thing they're doing pisses me off. And yet...I still pre-ordered it. And I'm still excited.

    The first mass effect was just legendary and number 2 looks like it has surpassed it by a lot. a definitive buy for me
