100+ things you might have missed in Mass Effect 2!

#1 Posted by LiquidPrince (15842 posts) -

So Mass Effect has a bunch of things to do. A bunch. So much in fact that you might have missed some stuff. Post some stuff you feel some people might have missed.
 
1. Kasumi and Zaeed actually have a ton of dialogue options if you get them early on in the game. They have stories for essentially every mission.
2. Once you beat the Shadow Broker, you can do various things on the ship such as watch spy videos from hidden cameras all around the galaxy, or you initiate assassination contracts or smear campaigns.
3. Default male Shepard is the way to go.

As a side note, Soldier is the most boring way to play Mass Effect 2. It was fine in Mass Effect, but in Mass Effect 2, the biotics are so much fun. Infiltrator is the best way to play Insanity.

As a side note, I don't like getting all invisible and being an asshole to those poor mechs.

8. If you did "The Fan" quest in Mass Effect 1, you'll meet Conrad Verner in the bar at Illium. Its an Awesome quest and really funny.

I disliked the gameplay pretty much all around, so soldier was the least painful class for me to play as.  (and I did try to play as an infiltrator on insanity)
 
9. If you don't know what the Space Hamster is a reference to you're a bad person.

That makes me feel much better about not being able to talk to them. Haven't actually got Kasumi yet, but I might now.... 
 
Also, default Shepard is a crackhead.

Maybe not the best phrasing. I meant, I was annoyed at not being able to engage Zaeed in an actual dialogue, but I am not as annoyed knowing he has more to say if you get him early on. That kind of feel better. Not like, I am suddenly rid of this small headache I've had all day.

Yeah, if you get them early on, they both have stuff to say about the different missions and team members. Be sure to visit them after every mission.

16. If you recruit Zaeed after completing the main story you have the option to kill him at the end of his loyalty mission.

So far 14 and 16 I actually did not know.  Thread success.

Default male Shepard sucks. Female Shepard was my first choice. Imported from Mass Effect 1, of course :p

18. On the Citadel in the Sirta foundation store there are two NPC's talking. They are both from a side quest in Mass Effect on the Citadel in which you help them come to a decision on whether or not to Vaccinate the womans unborn child.
 
19. If you steered the Asari and Krogan couple to stay together on Illium, you can find them again on the landing dock of Tuchanka.

21. If you stand behind Joker on the Normandy, without actually talking to him, he'll say stuff. Sometimes you have to wait a while.
