Just don't believe everything you read, good or bad. People claim to have completed the game in like 7 hours, but the shortest play through I’ve ever had was like 24 hours the first time I played. My guess with your knowledge of other games, you take your time and really explore. My last time through, I believe my seventh, took 56 hours. There are many Easter Eggs hidden throughout the game, many I had no clue what they were about, but with your knowledge of games you might.

Still have to play the game as a renegade, I’ve tried, but was not able to get to 75% in order to get the Xbox achievement. I am trying to figure out with all the help you’ve given me in the past would I recommend this game to you. After all, you made Oblivion complete enjoyment for me. Best I can say, Mass Effect is a beautiful, well written and has a great ending, but it also has flaws and some plot holes. Yes, I would recommend it, especially since you did not follow all the hype. Just know that combat is not turn based.

One request, if you do indeed get Mass Effect, I would really like to see the PC you create with the Character Creation system Bioware came up with for Mass Effect. If you can do what you did with Oblivion’s Character Creation system, I can’t wait to see your Mass Effect PC.

They probably used the wonderfully PR-diplomatic phrase "We have no plans at this time to..." which is a No which could change into a Yes at any time.

Sounds like a typical Bioware RPG in many respects, from what I've heard so far, so chances are I will probably like it when I get it. Since I've been unable to play it so far (due to its console-only nature) I haven't bothered looking much at the game before though.

I'll post screenshots of my character when I get the game.

Much as I look forward to being able to get this for the PC, I'll probly be cheaper to buy an X360 than to upgrade my PC to be able to play this.

Still, nice knowing another good (I hope) game will be on the PC. Now if we only knew if The Force Unleashed is getting a PC release or not (same for GTA4). At least Mercenaries 2 is coming soon.

I'd recommend this one, as it's a whole bunch cheaper than the PNY version.
I agree. It also has a lifetime warranty (as do BFG and XFX cards), which the PNY card lacks.

@Jimbo: Your monitor dollars would also be better spent on an 8-bit (PVA; MVA; IPS) panel instead of a 6-bit one. TN panels should never be that expensive, IMO.

OT: Yeah, I knew that a PC version of ME would be released eventually; I just didn't expect that it would happen so soon.

I might just try this. My Xbox 360 play through died halfway through because I cannot for the life of me play first person shooters (even in RPGs), but I suspect my aiming would be much better wth a mouse. Wouldn't count on it, though. I really suck.
Am I the only one slightly put off by the voice of female Shepard? All I hear when she's talking is a silly cartoon my brother used to watch...

Really? It's Jennifer Hale's, the same voice as Bastile in KotOR, if I'm not mistaken. I thought it'd be good.

You are correct it is Jennifer Hale, and personally I thought she did a wonderful job in Mass Effect as the female Shepard. I thought her Shepard was way better than the male version.

However, in fairness to MasterWaffle, Jennifer Hale has done many cartoon voiceovers.

I guess I am the only one then!

I think it's because her Shepard voice sounds similar to the cartoon voice overs and therefore I cannot take it seriously. Bastila sounds British at least, so it's not as noticeable.

Oh well, just thought I'd ask.

The Mass Effect Engine

As someone that hasn't played Mass Effect, would it make a good engine for Knights of the Old Republic III?

Edit: I somehow missed the Mass Effect thread in the forum. Moderators, feel free to close this thread or delete it.

Chris Priestly has announced Mass Effect for PC will be released on May 6 in North America.
Mass Effect for PC release date announced

Uh, yeah. I have the feeling I'll be infected with some nasty virus that will require me to stay home for a few days starting May 6. Being the kind, considerate person I am and all I don't want to contaminate my fellow co-workers.

I didn't mind the male Shepard's voice while going Paragon. It seemed a bit too soft for my renegade exploits though.

It's kinda funny listening to the female Shepard talking with Kaiden, since Kaiden's voice is Carth Onasi in KotOR.

If you close your eyes when they talk, it's like being on the Ebon Hawk again.

Hm any example´s for that? I didnt notice them preventing stuff like that and i know of some very good starwars mod´s for non-star wars games.
(BF2142 First Strike is the most recent is guess, and Warlords for Homeworld by EvilJedi is another very popular mod)

OT: Iam just glad i predicted this and didnt buy ME for my Xbox, i kinda knew they would sooner or later bring it out for the PC.
And the PC version allows Mod´s and Mod´s are what makes games like that even more fun to play for even more time!

Iam hoping for alot of sweet stoffe mod´s :-)

Nothing wrong with the male voice, Jennifer Hale just did an outstanding job IMO. Actually when I wrote that post above I did not have a full appreciation of how good a job Jennifer Hale actually did. Her Renegade voice is classic, you can hear the subtle sarcasm in her voice.

They have not released the specs as of 02/26/2008. It pushes the Xbox360 to it limit, so I’m hoping my three month old PC can handle them.

If you are going to do a complete exploration job and you are planning to sleep some, you may want to make it 72-hour virus.

I’d like to see how Mass Effect translates to PC before making that determination. However, I would say with a few small tweaks the engine would make a great Star Wars RPG game, including KOTOR III.

Can’t wait. All my female Shepard’s look basically the same except with different hair styles and color. Now some of the images posted on the Mass Effect forum look amazing. Needless to say my favorite PC creations have been other people’s work. Although the one time I really worked at it I got a fairly good likeness of myself. No matter your skill level it is hard to create a bad looking PC with the character creation system.

Well, they need to either implement the melee fight well, or simply abandon it. Though that's not likely.

Not true. Take a look on the character tha spawn up every time you choose a male character. That's ugly.

Looks like the release date for the PC version of Mass Effect may have been pushed back 3 weeks to May 27. No official confirmation from BioWare on this but some retail websites like Amazon, Gamestop, and GoGamer.com now list May 27 instead of May 6 as the ship date for the game.

Guess this means my life-threatening illness won't occur until the end of May now.

I'm oh so glad I remained patient and didn't buy a 360 just to get this game. I can't wait to be playing it on my machine in a few months time! I know it will be worth the wait!

Hope they fix the haircuts... Serious, what the problem with doing good looking haircuts in game ? in Mass Effect for xbox they sucks, in Neverwinter Nights 2 most of them suck and in Oblivion almost evryone sucks. And it can't be so hard to do them either, since modder have fixed it for all the above game, except ME since it's pretty hard to mod a xbox ^^

The Mass Effect Config program will automatically adjust your settings on first run, to attempt to give you an optimal play experience. As with all PC games, computer performance varies from system to system and adjustments can be made via the Config or through the in-game options to tailor your experience.
The "Mass Effect Config program" in itself sounds epic, extreme, and ground breaking. (I told you buzz words were fun). But in all seriousness: it's nice to see a game out for PC that isn't going to need a nuclear power station to run it.

Happy gaming, PC-ers!

since when can you have a decent gaming experience at min specs...!! in my thrifty student days I experienced constantly the disheartenment caused by trying to play a game on its min specs....

Also, on LCD screens, dumbing down rez and quality settings is not a forgiving process...

I'd upgraded my rig to play NWN2, a year later, my specs are still decent for Mass Effect Gotta love BioWare.

The only thing I'm worried about is my graphics card. It says the minimum is an ATI X1300XT while I have an X800 Pro. Hmm...

Most excellent! BioWare had been saying they were shooting for making the MEPC run on a high-end PC from 2 years ago.

My system meets or exceeds all the recommended requirements except for the video card and that isn't by much. Considering that my PC was high end back in October 2005 when I built it I'm excited at the prospect of experiencing MEPC without having to turn down a whole lot of the quality settings.
