The second is the fact that the Quarians literally have their entire civilization on those ships, and they can't very well risk the entire fleet in a huge battle with those kinds of stakes. Even if they somehow find a way around their immune systems issues and manage to colonize a planet I still doubt they'd be willing or able to commit their entire fleet to a battle against the reapers.

Ok. Sure. Why not commit only "20-30%" of yourself? I mean, it's not as if your entire species is being threatened of total extinction or whatever /sarc

As it stands, the Quarians are the ones most able to survive the Reaper invasion. They could just set course for the nearest Oort cloud and start hibernating.

The "most able" does not mean "really able to avoid extinction". Just means they are the species with the best chance of surviving if they hide. Like 1%.

Nope. I do expect to see that guy killing Reaper-mook-of-the-week with a hearty "DISMISSED!" though.

Here's what I want the Mass Effect 3 opening to be.

Shepherd is on trial on Earth. That Turian guy is there because whatever. He's all WHY DID YOU BLOW UP THE ALPHA RELAY and Shepherd is like REAPERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRS

And he sighs and he's like 'Shepherd, there ARE NO'

and a giant Reaper claw crashes down through the roof and CRUSHES HIM

There is a shocked silence. Shepherd makes air quotes and mouths "reapers"

Funny ;). I also like to play with the female sheppard, and no it's not for "datass", but for her voice. Damn. What a sexy strong voice!

I know the Flotilla is enormous, but I don't recall ever having read that it was anywhere near a potent military force. Most of its ships are old, many are decrepit, and the Quarians themselves aren't exactly the best soldiers in the galaxy.

Not to mention it was a fleet that had its ass handed to it by the Geth when it was still brand new :P

Finally finished ME2 and all its DLC, and I want MOOOOOOOORE.  Damn, Vanguard'ing kicks ass even more than it did before.  Charge is awesome, even on Hardcore.

There are 3...

And that mission is *bliep* horrible. But I beat it by hardcore (Also with vangaurd) by luring two Yvir mechs toward me, and headshot one, where the other would be taken down by the reactor meltdown of the first one (it kills him instantly :D) and then use all my heavy weapon ammo on the last remaining bot.

I did it early on without the Cain, but the missile launcher fires around corners... so if you stay at your start location and launch missiles at them, they come at you one at a time.  Dropped the first one entirely with missiles and the second got lured so we took it out with guns (Miranda and Garrus strip shields easily, and warp + inferno ammo drop armor)... after that, pull keeps it constantly staggered enough to allow your teammates to kill it.  The third one just walks toward you once you shoot at it so it's fairly easy to kill.

In the end, I couldn't be bothered to keep replaying it to perfection, so I think I lost 3 crates.  Regardless, I was swimming in credits with all the DLC anyway so no big loss.

The toughest mission for my Vanguard in the game was actually trying to get the Last Stand Achievement in The Arrival DLC.  All the enemies are shielded, so even my level 30 vanguard had some difficulty, but I was dying when the YMIR showed up.  Eventually, I swapped out the Particle Beam for the Cain... and Heavy Reave took care of the rest.  That, and charge-balling around the room earlier on with my shotgun (Eviscerator, since I chose Assault Rifles instead of the Claymore on the Collector Ship).

Needless to say, looking forward to ME3 now =)  I've carried this character through from ME1 with a Liara romance and pretty heavily weighted to Paragon.  Once the third one is release, maybe I'll do another complete 3-game playthrough with a FemShep weighted to Renegade.

So I went and played through my FemShep Vanguard twice in Mass Effect since the first play through didn't seem to take when I tryied to use it ME2.  On the plus side it was fun starting out at 50 with my gear load out from the first round.  So wrapped it up for the second time in a row, cranked up the Bose and let Faunts rock it out, slapped in ME2 and again not showing up as a valid import...

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...

I think I'll run my male Soldier Shepard through the last mission just to see if Import picks up at all since it worked the last time.  If so then I guess I will resign myself to doing the FemShep Vanguard from scratch.

Err, not sure if it's the same issue I had. I just didn't get anything except my first Shepard to show up in ME2, so I went and copied the Char_-----.MassEffectSave files from \Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect\Save to \Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 2\Save\ME1 . Has worked so far.

I don't think Slayer is playing on the PC, though. This is probably another issue of console gaming being all simpler and superior :P Seriously though, never had an issue importing a character on the PC. Not sure what's wrong there but it really is weird.

New Mass Effect details have emerged via a Spanish games magazine.

According to the ladies and gents over on the BioWare forums, the unnamed mag reveals new details on the game including plans for dynamic enemy damage, Shepard SWAT moves and possibly even space combat.

Here are your bullet points:

    * The reason that Cerberus is now against Shepard is explained at the beginning of the game.
    * Cerberus' troops include mecha, assault units and ninja-style shock troops.
    * Reapers come in different sizes ranging from 500-600 meters of the smaller ships to 2km for Herald.
    * New skills for Shepard: He can dive in search of cover ala Max Payne, roll, perform a SWAT turn and strike the enemy with greater variety of melee attacks. The mag specifically mentions a new class, "Heavy Melee" that takes advantage of these capabilities.
    * New skills: Engineer can build turrets.
    * Customize weapons with sights etc - there are five variants in each section.
    * More items to "loot."
    * Space Battles? Perhaps, but unconfirmed.
    * Locations include New York, London, a moon of the Krogan world, a Salarian world and Mars, among others.
    * Enemies can suffer dynamic damage. The Cerberus mecha, for example, require that you shoot a weak point - the glass cockpit - in order to destroy them. In other enemies you can cut off their arms and break various pieces of their armour.
    * Fighting is more dynamic, forcing you to move more frequently. Game speed is said to be 15% faster.
    * Exploration: You won't drive vehicles seen in previous games. The main gameplay is designed without them and will continue so. This does not mean that there are no vehicles in the game.

I am hoping the spacebattles bit is true!
