>Mass Effect 2: the binge

>I technically finished Mass Effect 2 late last night, but was unhappy with the ending. So I went back and re-did the end sequence, and then went the other way on the very last choice, and now I’m agonizing over whether or not I should’ve made the choice I happened to make.

Anyway. I put 38 hours into my first playthrough, managed to get up to level 30, and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen about as much as I could see (given my character’s parameters). I’m trying to figure out what to do for my second playthrough; do I want to import my dark side character from ME1? Do I want to re-use my fully-leveled light side ME2 character and play dark? Or do I start completely from scratch? Consider this: I’ve put almost 100 hours into the Mass effect franchise and I still haven’t used an assault rifle.

You know what – I’m not in any shape to write a coherent review. I seriously binged over the last 3 days, and I’m a little Mass Fatigued.

Here’s all you need to know about how I feel about it – I’m going to fire it up again anyway.

  1. >Great game. I finished it recently myself. I'd be curious to hear more specifically about what went down in the ending for you. I'm trying to avoid posting any potential spoilers here though. Fortunately, things played out pretty much as successfully as they can my first go, which I'm glad of, because much as I loved the game, and much as I'm eager for part the third, I'm glad to be done with it for now. I may come back to it in a few months and tackle it as a renegade, though, or make some different decisions just to have an ending that has a darker resolution.

  2. >Caro – I played the ending 3 different times, actually…#1. Lost Legion and Mordin, blew up the ship. Wanted the achievement for keeping everybody alive, and I had second thoughts about blowing up the ship, so…#2. Kept everybody alive, and kept the ship intact. But then I felt bad about that, because it would defeat the purpose of playing as a Renegade, so…#3. Kept everybody alive, blew up the ship. Now I can go full-on Renegade and see what happens.
