Giant Bombcast Mass Effect 2 Edition

We sit down with BioWare's Casey Hudson to discuss Mass Effect 2's sci-fi inspiration, DLC, sexy aliens, the BioWare doctors, and more.

Does this contain spoilers for ME1? I never finished it in 2007 and is currently playing through it in anticipation of this.

Did not expect this podcast, I just thought Casey Hudson would be guesting on the regular on. This is the only game I would mod my 360 for just to play it a week early.

Oddly enough, I really liked the parts that weren't about Mass Effect 2.

OK, somebody listen and tell us what the spoiler level of this is, assuming you've played ME1.

I really want to listen to this, but I am super afraid of there being any ME2 spoilers, so I gues I'll hold on until I finish the game.

I just listened to it, I don't think there were any spoilers directly. Mostly just talking about how complex the choices in the game get, and how they affect the final mission. Also some talk about how/why you get to "re-roll" your Shepard at the beginning of the game.  (Again, nothing direct, but Casey alludes to something significant)
 
But if you want to go in 100% fresh, probably hold off until Tuesday.
 
 
Great to listen to though, glad they answered all those questions.

I am glad you can change the physical appearance of your imported Mass Effect 1 character because I made my dude way too ugly looking.

Yeah just got the e-mail too, I switched to regular edition. I figure I put away those Mass Effect nickles for the DLC instead of an extra armor and a special casing.

To all those wondering: it's true this Bombcast was virtually spoiler-free; it's also under forty minutes long. I recommend it.

There are no real spoilers on the bombcast. He talks very briefly about a fish tank. I won't go into more detail if you guys think that's a spoiler, but it's a good listen.

When you get Bombcasters off topic, it's a hands-off job from there to... ahem... "epic win".
