I know, but you labeled it as a Corvette, which technically (as far as we know) is not a classification of vessel in use by the System Alliance navy. So far, there are only Frigates, Cruisers, Carriers and Dreadnoughts.

And I wouldn't count the Normandy's combat capabilities out just yet. At the end of the first game:

And who knows, the Normandy S2 might be even more combat capable than the first.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Does anyone know if Paragon/Charm carries over? It just hurt every time I had to allocate something to to charm. D:

Oh that'd be fun, I abused the Noveria bug so my Shepard has full marks in both charm and intimidate. I think they mentioned a skill reset though, not surprising considering the complete rebuild they did on the skill trees.

Yeah really hoping a similar exploit will come again in mass effect 2. Also pretty funny they never patched it.

I'm not the type of person that replays games. So I had allocate the skill points to charm, since you only get 4 for free. ;_;

edit: I just noticed. Is the game going to have ammo? I liked the fact how ME1 was based around the fact you could use anything unlimited(Didn't mind the medi-gel since you get a lot anyhow and unlimited grenades would just be OPed).

No medigel, you regenerate health.
No grenades, you get heavy weapons instead.

Technically your ammo is unlimited, you just carry around "heat sinks" to cool your weapon and you need to replace them after a certain amount of shots are fired. It is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. /sarcasm

Ah so you have something similar ammo. Can't see why they suddenly added that. There's already enough to manage with the armor and upgrades and shit. D: The game really has to much loot. Hope they turned down the quantity and turn up the quality of weapons dropped.

Man, choosing ones companions for the first playthrough will be hell. Not to mention I need every background story for each playthrough in ME1 to probably get the most out of them, if that's one of the things carrying over. Although I don't remember exactly if it does.

It is not heat sinks, I looked at a trailer and it was your regular ammo count on the HUD (or whatever you call it) that went down every time you reloaded.

That sucks.

Snowblind Rounds X + Frictionless Materials VIII< + Scram Rail X + Kinetic Coil VIII< + Assault Rifle = Overkill weapon without overheat

They must have noticed that.

Quite. It really was no challenge anymore once you got those parts, just charge in guns blazing, and as long as you weren't facing something that could kill you in one hit you'd be done in no time.

You forget that Snowblind rounds have a -40% RoF penalty, which means that you can't just spray, you have to fire in prolonged bursts.

Meaning, assuming a tap from you fires 5 rounds, you have to hold it down a longer just to get 3 rounds out. I never use it due to its lack of DPS (which can kill you when you are fighting Juggernauts or Battlemasters), and I use Tungsten/Shredder rounds more. And besides, it is useless when you are strafing or clearing blind corners, you tend to overshoot and hit your enemy only once or twice.

Always arm your pistol with Sledgehammer rounds and your main weapon with the round of your choice other than Snowblind/Cryo. Ice rounds are perfectly useless in the late game when you want to kill fast when backed into a corner.

I only really ment to imply it was smaller ship (like the corvettes in homeworld) as I dont really know enough about the S.A Navy to identify its exact class =]

Its hard to say how capable the N2 will be at this point but to me it actually looks smaller than its predecessor.

On a completely different note I see theres quite alot of talented actors voicing new characters this time round which is nice to see. Almost like a big budget hollywood flick =]

I think it was something they changed because of feedback from the fans iirc.

Imo it'll certainly make fire fights and little quicker but I didnt really see much of a problem with the old system.

Ehh, I used... incineration rounds I believe. Those that made the enemy die in pretty pink sparkles. Running and holding the trigger became quite easy after that. And pretty.
