I need to play this game.
I need to play this game.
Still need to beat this on insanity.
" Who else paused the video to read the description? :3 "I did
I kinda got annoyed by the fact that Vinny wasn't using warp to take down the armor in the Geth Primes and then popping them with Singularity...but I'm still half way through. I hope he actually uses it eventually.
" @TorosOfTheDead said:So the game is even easier on consoles? I know Dragon Age is harder on PC but I didn't know ME2 was harder.
"That sort of run-and-gun play wouldn't fly on the PC, even on Casual difficulty. "Agreed: On the PC you've got to stay under cover whenever under fire, else you're dead in seconds. It was of the big changes I noticed from the original, where you never really need to take cover. "
Vinny sounds really tired lol
This game continues to look visually very good.
Except for the fire effects. No, seriously. The fire looks awful. Watch the QL again and look at it coming at the camera... Ugh.
That Archer guy looks like Thom Yorke.
Loved Overlord. The ending was fantastic. Well worth the $$. Mass Effect is my favorite new IP this generation. Can't wait for more DLC.
While a bit pricey for what it is, it was 2 hours of good fun. Some of the most beautiful setpieces in ME2. Loved it.
Wow, this game looks so much better on PC.
Ashley Greene should play femShep in a movie.
" I thoroughly enjoyed Overlord. What you have to remember is it is a glorified side mission, but with a bit more story, thicker atmosphere, and some quasi-non-linearity. I am really looking forward to the upcoming prequel-style DLC(s). Side note: This is the first video I've watched of ME2 on the XBOX 360 and it really highlights how much more forgiving it is. That sort of run-and-gun play wouldn't fly on the PC, even on Casual difficulty. "I don't know where you're getting this from but I own and played both the 360 and PC version extensively and didn't notice a difficulty difference.
This was my favorite DLC out of anything that is currently released. Kasumi was a huge disappointment.
Don't make excuses for your Shepard Brad, she's fine : )
Disagree with Vinny's lukewarm appraisal. This blows the Kasumi DLC out of the water. And I don't even like the Hammerhead.
Both Vinny and Brad main male Shepard? I am disappoint, female Shepard is so much cooler.
I'll probably have to pick this up, along with all the other recent DLC, whenever I get around to replaying ME2 on Insanity. All my save files got erased recently, so I'll have to replay eventually.
Getting this when I get back to my ME2 insanity playthrough, after I'm done with Dragon Age.
I have this for PC and you do not have to stay in cover or you die faster. I be out of cover and don't die...maybe your a bad player because it is awesome on PC. Not played X360 version but the PC version is awesome.
pretty short dlc i finished it in like an hour
Yeah bought this the other day, great value for $7.
I enjoyed the DLC, it was very character/emotionially driven and fits far better with the Mass Effect style than any of the previous DLC.
I also like that it had a sort of hub world with multiple missions, it definitely feels more integrated with the actual game and the end of it was very well done. My only complaints are again, that your team mates do nothing which is very jarring and also that there are zero rewards for completing the quest besides some money and materials.
A new weapon or armour would have made this a fantastic set.
Really not into any of this mid-game DLC, but the stuff that bridges ME2 to ME3 could be awesome.
I don't know why, but that quicklook totally put me off ME2.
I really wanted to play it, but the UI just looks awful compared to the first one.
Yeah, while this didn't give me a character or gun like kasumi, i enjoyed this one much more because it actually allowed me to blast shit for a couple hours with my old 120+hour savegame crew. Like Vinny said, i enjoy soaking that up and will keep buying if it's that level of quality.
I'm still trying to figure out a way to reset the quest progress on my save in such a way so i can replay the story missions with my 100% crew and gear, but the game's scripting would probably glitch out.
There are some funny lines for legion if you take him on some of the early missions though!
I played through this game twice and none of this DLC is really enticing me to come back to it.
" @RoadCrewWorker: do a new game plus, its basically a quest reset. "
Done that 3 times out of my 6 playthroughs. And no, it's not, i want to keep my squadmates and upgrades to switch to the hidden "difficulty_level_6" (or just make my own harder-than-insanity difficulty setting).
I'm starving for more ME2 and it shows ;-)
The ending for this DLC is gross...
" @RVonE: I got it from watching that video. :P It may be misleading, but it seemed like he was taking way more fire than he should have been able to survive. "I see, but I', quite sure there is no difference in difficulty. I might test it sometime soon with a new game on both the PC and 360 to see how many shots it takes for Shepard to be killed. I've also been digging around on the internet and couldn't find anything on the PC version being more unforgiving.
I was mostly just fine with the Mako. I don't know why all the whiny babbys have to complain about it all the time. The PC version let you aim down from the start, and they patched the 360 version to fix that issue well. If anything I'd complain about the repetitive nature of the planetary exploration. Actually driving the mako was awesome. Made me think of really old games with exaggerated physics. I swear there was some old atari moon driving game or something like that.
The two games are identical in terms of damage modeling and difficulty. Bioware was making one game, not two. Use some common sense. There is absolutely no reason the PC version would be harder.
As for the Mako vs Hammerhead, they both suck for different reasons. The Hammerhead is this little fragile RC toy that dumbly spams homing missiles and is jarringly disconnected from the core gameplay. The Mako controlled like crap and every little bump in the terrain completely wrecked your ability to aim.
We need something more like the APC from Aliens. Heavy, tough, aggressive. Punching a hole through a gauntlet of enemies at top speed. Whatever doesn't get killed by the cannon, gets crushed beneath. Or just copy the damn Warthog. Whatever you do, Bioware, just don't go 0-3 on vehicles. Be prepared to leave them out entirely like I wish had remained the case with ME2.
I thought it was decent. The hammerhead section felt very much like padding but the ending was fantastic. I could have wholeheartedly recommended it if it was more along the lines of a $5 Bring down the sky episode rather than the $7 we had to pad parts to justify the cost dlc. Other than that, worth playing for die hard fans, Bioware continues to deliver on writing and story.
Just beat this on Insane...it was...nuts.
Good job Vinnie & Brad. I'm now back into ME2. THANKS A BUNCH.
Seriously wish they would stop letting Brad into quicklooks.
I have yet to play through any of the DLC, watching this makes me want to play ME2 again.
Queen Latifah reference FTW
