    Ok, so after sitting on my desk for several months, and gathering a thick layer of dust...I finally got around to installing Mass Effect 2 CE, along with all the DLC.

    Now, I've been playing for a few days straight, and I have a few questions.

    • I ran across Tali during the Veetor scene, but where can I find her to put her on my team?
    • In ME1, Liara was my "love interest"...she was also one of my best party members. Where is she? I want her back on my team asap!
    • Anyone have the 'stolen memory' DLC? Is the NPC any good?
    • When choosing weapons, how the heck do I know which ones are better than the others? (I like the ME1 weapon/armor setup better, you could clearly see the differences between each weapon/armor)
    • Also, when I get an upgrade (say, assault rifle damage), does that upgrade *all* assault rifles?

    Some answers:

    Tali can be recruited later. You will also run into Liara later, but she is not a recruitable party member. The new DLC coming in early september is about Liara and the Shadow Broker and apparently you can continue your romance with Liara.

    No opinion on Kasumi as I have not played the DLC yet. Weapons data and yes.

    There's only 1 question to ask about ME2; Is it amazing? Yes. Yes, it is.

    Well...duh! [​IMG] I could have told you that after 5 minutes of actual gameplay (after the overly long prolouge). :p

    Kasumi's 'Stolen Memory' quest is ok. Nice loot. The character is interesting, like an infiltrator.

    Weapon and armor or biotic and tech upgrades benefit the whole party.

    Ok, so I have another question now that I'm nearing the end of my second runthrough.

    Is there any way that you can avoid having your entire crew abducted? And if not....what is the point in upgrading the Normandy's shields, armor, and weapons??? :hmm:

    I'm just about to start the sucide mission, and I'm 90% sure that I had researched every ship upgrade offered...and my crew *still* gets taken away! :grr:

    You can`t avoid having the crew captured. The point of the upgrades...well...try playing through the game without upgrading the ship at all. I did that during my first playthrough. It had some severe consequences for certain companions.

    Explain....


    I see a use for certain upgrades, like larger fuel capacity, more probes, and a better scanner. But better weapons? At no point in the entire game does the Normandy shoot anything. :skeptic:

    At the end, the Normandy shoots the collector ship to bits. Also if you don`t upgrade the shields and whatsnot, several of your companions dies on the way to the collectors base. During the cutscenes there. When I played, Thane got impaled on a metal bar, Jack got blown up near a panel, and Tali exploded\burned to death near the core of the ship.

    Likewise, if you have lapsed on loyalty missions, there will be repercussions during the suicide mission.

    PS: I currently replay Mass Effect 1 in order to replay Mass Effect 2 with a level 60 character :)
