The bootleg trailer is posted on WWTDD at the moment, I'm sure it'll be down soon though. If you're avoiding spoilers or don't get to see it... it looks awesome. smile

Holy hell that trailer was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to play through again with a tech focus, but I want to use the assault rifle.  I don't see a combo that allows that frown

Actually... if you play a class that has assault rifles one time, and get the assault rifle mastery achievement, the next time you start a game you can give the assault rifle skill your character regardless of class.  I really like the achievement system for ME as it deals with my main criticism for achievements, they usually give you no tangible gameplay benefit for getting the achievement.  Whereas in ME, getting an achievement often gives you a reward like extra damage with that weapon, stuff for future replays, etc...

The only thing I hoped for was some sort of achievement/special mission for those who go the paragon and renegade route equally.  Something like "unpredictable".

Nice I didn't know that.  Thanks man!

Activision's response (pilfered from kotaku)

Quote
The recent announcement by MTV Games/Viacom's Harmonix division that Activision is blocking Sony from releasing a patch and their plea to enable Rock Band software to work with Guitar Hero hardware paints a very misleading picture.

In fact, Harmonix and its parent company MTV Games/Viacom recently declined Activision's offer to reach an agreement that would allow the use of Guitar Hero guitar controllers with Rock Band. We have been and remain open to discussions with Harmonix and MTV Games/Viacom about the use of our technology in Rock Band. Unfortunately for Rock Band users, in this case Harmonix and MTV Games/Viacom are unwilling to discuss an agreement with Activision.

Activision's top priority is to provide consumers with a seamless marriage of best-in-class hardware and software. We are focusing our efforts on innovating hardware and software that are designed to work together, work flawlessly and provide an enjoyable gaming experience.

Yeah I tried the AK based on your glowing reviews of it.  Unfortunately, I sometimes spray with the bullets and after 1 bullet that damn AK is all over the place.  I try and squeeze off a couple rounds, but invariably I get one up close and panic!

Oh also having the X button function as 'select response' AND skip dialogue during the convos is such a completely baffling mechanic I cant even begin to imagine how it made it into the final version of the game.

Personally, I think that was the smart decision.  You can hold the stick to the appropriate response quadrant and rapidly click through a dialogue while still having the game register the appropriate paragon/renegade options.

The alternative (X to skip, A to select response) would be far more cumbersome IMO. 

I know on more than one occassion I hit X too late and it picked a dialogue choice.  There was only one time though that I wanted to go back and see what I skipped though, or choose a different response.

I've completely changed my play style from actively seeking opponents to waiting for them to seek me.  My k/d is up to 1.06 now, my best ever.  I also unlocked taht G36C and it's my fav-o weapon ever.

I'm with Calvin on the controls though, I'd be about 50x better on the PC with a mouse and keyboard.  But alas, I wanted to get involved with the XBL crowd on this one.

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 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.
