All of these reviews are so funny, imo.

I would like to get a HD DVD player, but this format war keeps me at bay.  I'll take a clear winner, please.

I would have been a sure thing for this until I bought COD4.  I have zero interest in paying for these maps.  I'll get them when they're free in the spring.  How about you guys?

Well I still suck pretty bad with continuous notes, but something somehow clicked in game for me.  I'm now able to play on Hard with pretty good success.  I've found that Rock Band is much easier on Hard than GH2 and 3.  I've even been able to play and 5 star some Expert songs, which I thought I'd never be able to do.  Fun, fun gaming!

Thanks for the invite last night Pete, that was fun.  I've never played domination before and I must say that was my favorite game type I've played so far.

It will not, however, be a boon to your K/D ratio...  Tongue

I dunno, one of the domination games I went 24-10.

I had a great night last night and got back to 1.03.  I need to stop worrying about k/d though and just enjoy the game.  I got the G36C and I am sure loving that.

I finished as a Renegade Infiltrator-  did the lesbian tango with Liarra, sacrificed Kaiden, hit Wrex with the butt of my rifle and filled him full of lead as he lay there, freed the Arachni queen and intimidated Saren into eating a bullet just before deciding to eliminate the council and put the Captain in charge.  I purged Feros, killed the ancient thorian, executed the Asari he had been holding, and brought executioners justice to all others who did wrong.

Good lord were you one evil son of a bitch. Still a fun game playing as a total bastard out of curiosity?

hell yeah!  as far as I can tell you don't get penalized for doing anything horrible.  However, the annoying part is that your allies are fine with whatever you do.  I was expecting Liarra or Tali to freak out over me executing Wrex but they just shrugged it off.

I have to say once you hit level 50 you pretty much roll over anything- it'll be interesting to start a replay with the current career on Insane.

Poor Wrex, he was my wingman!

Level 50 is the max on a first playthrough- Level 60 for New Game +.

And, yeah, I would recommend doing as many sidequests as possible before going to Virmire.  Though there is a bit more left to the game than you think. 

Level 50 is the max and unfortunately I missed it by about a 1000 XP points. I think I completed every side quest there was, so there must be side quests that are very difficult to find or unlock. I think if you're at the end game and you're close, it's probably worth visiting any systems where you're not 100% sure you've scanned everything.

Even if you don't get to 50 on that initial play through, if you start a new game with your old character and get to 50 on that game, you still get the achievement.

Hey KePow, some examples on Hard that kill me are Sabotage, Reptilia, and The Hand That Feeds.  The sections in those songs just ruin me.  I can never keep strumming properly.

Chaz is right.  If you keep the beat with your foot, you pick the notes per the beat and are not trying to pick as the note crosses the line thingie...

leo, how new are you to music theory?  Have you tried doing a mental "one two three four one two three four" or "one and two and three and four and" count as you try to get the timing right on those long strings of notes?  That kind of mental count can especially help if the song has occasional other color notes in the midst of the stream of the main color.  Instead of thinking "ok, here come those two blue notes" and trying to time it as they cross the line, you just know to play them on the "three and" part of the count.

Hey Wonderpug, I'd say I am a total novice.  I have an idea of what you're saying, but it's not something I have been doing in game.  I'll try and do that.

give us some specific examples of songs on Hard

then I'll know whether to recommend downpicking exclusively, or if it's too fast and you need to alt-pick

most of the time, it's a lot easier to keep rhythm on those types of passages with downpicking

Play a solider and make sure that you have Garrus or Tali along for the ride the whole game and limit their ability to use powers autonomously. 

Hey Kevin do you get achievements if you are the one triggering their powers?

He was definitely there earlier- you must have walked right by him. 

I remember this guy being well along the path the Mako takes with the colonists that are taking refuge. However after this level, he's back at the main area with the rest of the colonists.

Question about starting over.  If I want to try a new build, does my career use the same 10 save game slots as the game I finished, or does it give me new ones?

Each character gets 10 save slots of thier own, no oeverwriting by accident of another character.

Thanks Arkon.

Regarding Para/Rene, I got points in Renegade when I didn't even think I was being bad sometimes.

Hey all.  I saw all tho hoo-haa here about how Harmonix just plain does better note charts, which led me to pick up Rock Band and concentrate more on GH2.  I have found that after some solid playing, I can do a-ok on Hard mode now.  I don't just fail a song after 10% automatically.  Whether that's because the notes are more natural or because I play more, I'll never know!!

Any way, I can do ok with fast moving fingers and chords and stuff.  HOWEVER, the thin I just cannot nail is multiples of the same notes really close together.  Like a string of 25 red or whatever in a row.  I screw up EvERY time. It sucks to be doing really good on a song and them BAM no bonus.  To make matters worse, it seems like as songs go up in difficulty it basically means that they now have lots of the same notes in a row.

My question to you rock gods....how did you get better on repeat notes?  Please help me GT, you're my only hope!

Are you down-strumming exclusively when trying to hit those notes?  Or are you strumming both up and down?  Keep in mind that there's a practice mode in Rockband that allows you to play a particular part of a song slower

I started by trying to go up and down, but I could never keep up, so I just strum down with my thumb on these parts now.  I can just never keep the beat, as it were on these long single note sections that are so close together.

Positive- he told me so himself Tongue  I think it depends on how you handle his personal subquest.

I replayed the Wrex interaction on Virmire a couple times, too.  I thought there has to be a path to save my buddy Wrex's people.

I don't think all hope is lost.  Just knowing that Saren was able to find a cure means that other, more benevolent scientists, should be able to do it too. 

The question is more wether the council would allow it.

In my world, the council perished in a fiery onslaught from the Geth.  Long live the new council!!!!!
