My name is Shepard.
EDIT: Oh god. I just stood up and danced while shouting for a minute. This quest is so dumb, but so rewarding.
 
Oh and the game is cool too, but I knew that.

Awesome!

I liked killing Ashley better.

Already got the quest. Yay more Mass Effect!

Sigh, missed it. I'm interested in the PS3 version so thank-you.

I'm Commander Shepard and this is the most pointless quick look ever.

I'm commander Shepard, and this is my favorite site on the internet.

welp im gettin it

How did jeff make liara show up at the start. I thought it could only be kaiden or ashley, weird.

Posted by gla55jAw

Kaiden and Ashley were both my party so it sucked when I had to kill him....mostly because I missed out on an achievement.

I enjoyed the comic, but really if you've played Mass Effect 1 you know how much they kind of leave out there.  They don't even mention the Spectre you go with or one or two of the main storyline planets and missions you do.  I wonder if you will still into the "green girl" on Ilium?  I haven't gotten that far yet on PS3. 
 
Basically, people will whine but its the quickest way for them to get people up to speed, and I have no problems with it.  I enjoyed it but I'm glad I've played through ME1 for more supplemental stuff.

Wow playing this on the PC now, played the x360 version earlier.
I love my PC graphics, this looks kinda bad in contrast. The AA on the sun in the background in the beginning is kinda grueling.

Posted by GamerChiCcK

i like how they explain to you what happened  in mass effect 1 thats pretty helpful for the people who didn't play it otherwise they would be lost story wise i think

Posted by litrock

I've never seen this game running on a console before. Frame rate seems kind of janky. That said, still an attractive game. I mean, obv it isn't going to approach the PC version. 
 
Also, Male Shepard is the wrong Shepard. Just sayin'.

Posted by Jakethesnakeyea

woohoo! playing through the 360 version again...love it!

Posted by Cazamalos

i don't know why i own the three versions of this game....i can't stop playing (and buying) it

Congrats, PS3 owners! You're in for a treat!

Did they really not make use of the blu-ray storage medium with the FMV cutscenes and loading scenes? Thought that was just the demo for the sake of space

PS3 version doesnt have shepard having the face scars? 

Posted by TzarStefan

Ps3 ftw!

what's Liara doing on the Normandy? i don't remember that part of shit the Normandy exploding in one of the greatest and most tragic ship destructions in entertainment since One Piece

Posted by Chris2KLee

Totally agree with Jeff, when I saw the video for the comic, thoughtful reflective Shepard really put me off. Also a shame we didn't get a lady Shep in the comic to.

In Mass Effect 1, I was in a relationship with Liara. So in the beginning of ME2, she was the one talking to me.

Dudes! You might like to have a spoiler alert for a game like that!!! Don't go and tell everybody how saving the queen affects the rest of the game. People haven't played  the game yet!!

Posted by D34dM4n
@beeryayghost: ah, i see. i went with Kaiden

If you romanced Liara, she's the one who runs up to you in the beginning.
 
That being said, the PS3 version makes it so Liara is the one who runs up to you even if you pick someone else in the interactive comic.

I'm assuming that is a PS3 change as the decision of who to save shows up after that scene, which would make it weird to have had the dead person alive on the ship after they die.

Well dammit, now I'm going to have to play through Mass Effect 2 again.

Posted by jagenheim

Mass Effect on PC is way better than the 360 version. And this is after playing through ME1 on the xbox360 6-8 times. ;) 

Posted by PLWolf

Even though it was a 12gb download, I downloaded the ME2 1 hour trial from PSN and now contemplating buying it. It would be awesome to be able to play ME2 at anytime and leave RB3 in the drive.

Posted by Martdawg

Does anyone not kill Kaiden?

whats the name of the song when comic starts?

Um, you do, if you choose Female at the start. 'Twas what I did, and 'twas a lady Shep narrating my comic.
Posted by Kraznor

Ugh, seeing a male Shepherd is just weird.

Edited by bybeach

It looks great on the PS3!  
 
Congrats.  
 
Just listening to Jeff and Brad in the beginning, I heard what I've always suspected, the PS 3 would (mostly)be as good as the 360, maybe a bit better in some spots, not in others. Both are now what someone else said, middlin computers that this game has been optimized for...and that tells me alot about what can be done on the development side. Interesting and Impressive.
 
Now the negative..I guess I understand the cartoon bit in the beginning, but ...well, guess I would have to get used to it. A well done Graphic Novel I might like, but I'm a reader. I never played Mass Effect , and maybe just accepting the default whatever was best for me for getting into ME 2 and skipping what I did not experience anyways.

does this QL spoil the first game? I started playing it recently in anticipation for this, and I will make the comic mirror my choices...but I don't wanna ruin 1

It's inexcusable, really.

Oh, wow, that motion comic voice-over is awful.

Ah I see, didn't realize that. Does she sound better in the line readings? Male Shepard sounds like he's sitting next to the fire reminiscing with the grand-kids.
Posted by Davin

They're playing the game wrong already. Everyone knows Shepard is a lady. Seriously.

Posted by ObsideonDarman

 Played and beat it on the 360 but it doesn't mean I can't get it for my PS3 and beat it again. Can't wait to go and pick it up. 
 
Great Quick Look as always guys.    

Posted by allenibrahim

I need to buy this ASAP! My PC sucks and I don't have a 360. Fireside Shepard is not a problem because, in my opinion, that's just a recap. It's like when the main character on a TV show recaps a season before the epic finale. I don't know. I just...reallllllly want this in my PS3.

Posted by Venatio

Always go with Liara in Mass Effect, Ashley sucks, though she's still better than Kaidan

Posted by prestonhedges

Some people do not own every console and do not have good enough PCs to run modern games.
 
Still, they waited a good long while, didn't they.

Posted by Sooty

That comic looks shit, feel sorry for those that are jumping straight into Mass Effect 2 without having played the first.
