I think Mass Effect 2 is all around a better game then Mass Effect. A lot of what they stripped away and improved was just what they needed to do, but there were also some things that they removed that I personally enjoyed quite a lot in the original Mass Effect. I loved exploring the planets with the MAKO, even though the structures on most of the planets was the same, I simply enjoyed it. The could have kept some what of a loot aspect, but it was absolutely horrible in Mass Effect, so I think it was a good decision to remove it, rather then keep it as it was. The loadouts worked well in Mass Effect 2 worked very well with the game they made. Overall I think it's no doubt that Mass Effect 2 was a better game then the original. I've spent probably close to 200 hours in those to games combined and they are both a blast, and I love this series soooo much. But no, Mass Effect 2 is the superior game. IMO of course.
There’s no stopping the Normandy right now! Rightly so in my opinion, Mass Effect 2 is superb from beginning to end. I’m even the weirdo who found the resource hunting with probes to be quite therapeutic.
Passed the written and the driving tests for both my car and scooter licence on the first try, and now my younger brother is just the driving test part for his car licence away from doing the same. Was the same for my father and mother as well... Guess it's in the family ^^
The Poland trip is a part of school where you go to Krakow (spend about 5 days there) and travel to the concentration camp around in Poland and Germany. We also spent some time in Krakow it self and visited the mines there (they are AWESOME), but it was mainly a trip to learn more about the horrors of WWII. We had a survivor with us who told story of the horrors he endured.
When it comes to the country it self, I found anything from Poznan and south to be very nice. We traveled from Sweden to the north coast of Poland, and from there to Krakow things seemed very far and "Cold War"y. Much of the nature was just like taken out of "All ghillied up" in CoD4. Long concrete roads made for tanks and far between the houses. But all in all it was an amazing trip.
Born in Norway, have been in (number of times in parentheses); Sweden (double didgits amount of times, can't recall), Denmark (5), Poland (1), Germany (2), France (4), Monaco (4), England (3), Netherlands (1), Luxemburg (1), Belgium (1), Italy (3), Malta (2), Spain (2) and the US (2). Would love to go to Asia sometime though.
