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.
11404  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

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.

Yeah I'm going to 'borrow' one from Costco tomorrow until my replacement comes back.  Hopefully they have some in stock.  And it's #3, asshole

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?

Ok guys really noob question here; if I take the default appearance of Shepard am I stuck as a soldier?  Do I get to change that somewhere else?  Or do I have to create an entirely new avatar to change what class I want to be?

Select to customize your character and when you get to the appearance section you will have the option of taking the Shepherd face or making your own. 

Thanks, Kevin.

I belive the chase is part of the assassination. Infact, the entire city goes on 'alert' once you've killed your target, as guards who see you from pretty far away give chase.

Yeah once you assassinate someone the city alert sounds and even if you get stealthy, you are still under red alert until you get back to the bureau.

Right, but that just means you get noticed that much easier.  In the scenario above, the guards were on me like flies on shit the moment I did the hit and it was about the most secluded place I could find.  It wasn't clear to me if fleeing at top speed or fighting my way out of the hospital was mandated or because I had somehow botched the assassination. 

Yeah I'm under the impression that it's just part of the assassination.  I'm 6 assassinations in and every one has become a chase after I make with the killing. 

EDIT:  I've been doing all my assassinations as stealth, if I mess up I die and start it over.
