Ah so talking to Calvin yields that there is apparently a 2nd gun on the Retardtruck that is you know... actually useful relative to the shit gun mapped to RT.  Way to tell me, Bioware.  You stupid fucks.

I'll try again next time with the better gun and see if I hate it less.

There's a second gun?

Since this is an impressions thread.  I will say that I saw RB for the first time at BB tonight and I watched a couple guys play guitar and drums.  I can't believe how simplistic the interface is.  I definitely like the circle notes and design on the fret board that the GH series has.  I never played it and it looked fun enough, I was just shocked at how bad it looked.


So who is paying you to say this? Sorry but GHIII looks like crap compared to Rock Band.

No one, I just finally saw RB in action for the first time at Best Buy.

Ceekay I never found anything that told me that I've visited a galaxy.  I was hoping for a visual notifier as well.

Yeah to add, that 5th button just ruins me.  I could deal with a setting between medium and hard that still used 4 buttons, but was faster or something.

I have a spoiler-ish question about game length.... 
Spoiler for Hiden:
I see there are 3 achievements for completing certain worlds.  I did Feros and Virmire and there's just Novaria left to do.  However, my way zoomed out galaxy is 3/4 empty....are there more worlds that will show up?

On another note....I've found that I've put my self into a position that I wish there was a more difficult setting in the first playthrough. Once you are at around level 30, well equipped and have a balanced squad, the combat is over too quickly.

I thought you could bump it up via the Options menu at any time. Hardened/Insane are locked at the beginning, but I thought there was a Veteran mode or something right off...

And the 1 million credit thing - Yes and yes. Just make sure you visit the Spectre Quartermaster (downstairs at C-Sec) as well as the one on the Normandy once you've hit it. The Spectre one especially. biggrin

Ah ok I thought that's what it was.  I visited the Normandy guy, I see it's time to go back to the Citadel!!

GH2 I can do some songs on Hard without missing 9/10 notes.  Medium is a good balance of hard and doable.
GH3 I can't do crap on Hard.  It's impossible.  Medium is tough, but fun.
Never tried RB.

So with regards to saves are there only like 10 or 12 slots? Because I don't get the option for a new save anymore.

Yeah.  I just go to the bottom of the list each manual save now.

Maybe it was a smaller worm?  A Maw Thrasher?  I found one by a distress beacon, got out of the Mako, and owned it.  I don't know either, but I was wondering why I didn't try this the first time.  I figured my upgrades had something to do with it.

that's the situation where I encountered the worm.  there were a bunch of dead marines lying around and I got a quest to inform the Rear Admiral about finding them.

Yeah that was the second one I came across.  I got out of my vehicle and destroyed that one.  The first one I found ambushed me after I recovered some downed satellite.  It looked exactly the same as the one you listed above.

I also started fighting the real big Geth outside of my vehicle since I can take them down just as fast on foot.

What does knowing how to play mean?  Camping a lot and ambushing?

Seems like for every 17-7 game I have, I have two were I am on a team that just gets overrun.
11179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect Impressions on: November 27, 2007, 04:35:13 PM
The first worm I fought was in the vehicle and it was as lame as you described.  The second one I got out and fought on foot and it died about 10x faster.

I thought you could tell a Falcon unit if it had HDMI output?

they started putting HDMI outputs on the non-elite 360's before they started putting out the Falcon.

But as far as the non-elite systems go only the Falcon models have HDMI, no?

From what I've read at other forums, several runs of HDMI enabled non-elite systems are still non-falcons.

Yeah I have a pro with HDMI but it's not a falcon.  Manufactur date is 7-4-07
11188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: This is the Way Customer Service Should Be on: November 26, 2007, 12:44:49 AM
A little off topic, but what on the box details it as a Falcon system?

Hey guys I have a question in Feros...

Spoiler for Hiden:
I just killed a bunch of Krogans and retreived the guy's data on the OSD.  I now see an orange X on my map but I can't get anywhere.  All the areas I can walk to are enclosed and it appears I can go no further.  Did something bug out and I can't continue?

Not sure about that. But I landed on a planet and cleared it and wanted to get back to the Normandy. There was nothing I could do to get back. Totally bugged. I had to re-load a save 2 hours back. It hasn't happened since, but I wont get caught with my nearest save being that far back again.

It ended up being that the stairway was so dark I didn't see it at first.  When I finally came back to that particular room, I used the map and found there was a dark stairway there.

Has anyone else come across free roaming wild life yet?
 I was on a side quest on a planet and I stumbled upon a heard of animals that looked like kangaroos with strange limbs. I got out of the Mako and walked up to them and was surprised that the talk icon appeared. They didn't run away so I tried talking to them, but neither the critters or Sheppard said anything.
So does anyone think there might be talking animals on some planet?

I found those same animals.  I figured they just didn't code them properly to take away the talk action.

Good luck with that.  I hit 4 Costco's earlier this week trying to do the same thing, and there wasn't a 360 to be found anywhere.  One of the stock guys actually laughed when I asked when they were getting more in.

Worst case, I'll order one online.  I don't think it'll be much of an issue.

Gellar I live in the Bay Area and every single store I've gone into has 360s piled to the ceiling.  You'll have no problems finding it anywhere.

This question might've been answered in here... but I dunno... it's a long as thread full of potential spoilers.

How do I go into low profile mode?  I'm on the first pickpocket mission and the guy keeps turning around and looking at me... it said I need to be in low profile mode... does that just mean that I need to NOT be pressing the right trigger?  If I'm not in high profile mode, I'm in low profile mode?

Tips on pickpocketing?

Yeah if you're not holding the right trigger, then it should be low-profile mode.  When I pick pocket, I just watch the guy for a moment or two, so he has a chance to look over his shoulders, once he starts walking, I try and get close and pick pocket him right then before he starts to look again.

I am really not liking combat either.  I just don't get who thought this method of combat would be good for an RPG.  I also try and use Biotics during combat, but it seems like the enemy moves before it hits him and I'm just screwed because it's on cooldown.

Has anyone figured out how to use a headset plugged into an instrument to sing?  Or can you even do this?  Is that jsut for talking on Xbox live?

On a related note, does anybody's headset work when plugged into the drum set?

Mine does. You just have to tweak the connection by turning it in the jack until it works.  It's very touchy.  And you're using the adapter right?

I've been reading these impressions and it strikes me how easy you guys are going on this game.  Tweak the headset jack?  Online not working?  Guitars breaking after a couple hours?  So many people here were lashing out at Guitar Hero for the same things, but Rock Band gets a free pass?
