Picked up ME2 today!

. Picked up ME2 today!

Post by Denial048 on Sat 22 Oct 2011, 10:21 am

I got it for nearly a quarter the original price, brand new! It came out in Aus at $108, but it dropped to $50, and today EB Games had a sale, so it was only $28!

SO anyway, looking forward to finally playing this, any tips?

Have you played the first one?

Anyways....picking a class you will enjoy is somewhat important.

Yeah I played the first, never 100%'ed it though. I also originally played it on my older xbox, before it went through a house fire and died (with my account as offline Sad )

But now I have a couple saves on the new xbox, never hit level 60, but some good characters.

I played the demo a while ago, played an adept (i think, the ones that use a sentry turret) and enjoyed what I played, I don't like that now you actually have ammo.

About to sit down and read the manual, my fiancee is watching SoA at the moment

Ehh the bonuses for the achievements and being level 60 isn't a necessary thing to have.

If by sentry turret you mean combat drone then you would have been playing as an Engineer, which is a class I personally liked in ME2 and not ME1.

Well if you enjoyed it then possibly try that for a full game then. Everyone really has different playstyles so my opinion on classes doesn't really help much.

Yeah, I just thought, seeing as they have the new abilities, someone might give pointers there, or just a good tip for the start XD

Well my opinion for character classes, in ME1 I was fond of the biotics, it was fun to use and actually quite powerful, but in ME2 I usually played as a Soldier because the adrenaline rush was perfect for me, except on insanity mode I wouldn't really recommend soldier lol.

For Insanity I'd import a save if possible to get extra exp to start and play Sentinel. They're the most tankish, and have Warp and Overload, both nice.
Otherwise, I enjoyed infiltrator and Soldier the most, with Vanguard a close third.

Warp and Overload I think are undisuputably the most important powers.

To start this reply, I just thought I would mention I have now put about two hours into my first play through - a non-imported engineer. It seems alright at the moment, on normal difficulty, I'm about to start the "Recruit the Professor" mission.

Seeing as armour, weapons, and scanning has all changed, any advice there would be good. I would use the Cerberus Network code to get the extra stuff, if Microsoft didn't suspend my account like d*cks. (They say I haven't payed for my gold membership, when the money has been in my account)

I've never been big on biotics, I like the tech moves.

I guess I'll have to practice my biotic use then!

They are the most important powers imo yes, but it doesn't mean you need to have them. Only one class has them both.

Well armor has no real value any more. All you can do with armor is customize the pattern, color, styles. I think some armor may give bonuses, but I think the bonuses are insignificant so I just pick the armor I think looks the best.

As for guns, there are only a few guns for each category. Every class gets at least a pistol. Every class except Soldier, for some reason, can use sub machine guns. Every class has access to heavy weapon guns.

Infiltrators can also use sniper rifles.
Vanguards can also use shotguns.
Soldiers can also use sniper rifles, shotguns, and assault rifles.

As for finding a gun that is good, you just have to experiement with them and see which ones you prefer.

There is also a point about mid-way through the game where you can have your character learn either assault rifle, shotgun, or sniper abilities.

Scanning.....well scanning is the worst part of the game. If you don't know what you're doing, and you won't until you get used to it, it's going to take a couple of hours total of your gametime if you want to get all the necessary upgrades. I only scan planets that are deemed "Rich" and only probe areas with large spikes of resources. You'll hopefully understand once you begin.

And DO NOT start scanning until you get the possible upgrade from Miranda somewhat early on in the game. I usually just do all my scanning as soon as possible. I've learned that you need about 200,000 of each resource to get all the upgrades. (You don't need Element Zero). Some people scan in spurts throughout missions but I just like to get it over with as soon as possible. It will bore you but really that's the worst part of the game.

Armor is really important on insanity; +10% shield recovery rate can really help, and when Sentinels get their monstrously large shields, the additions start to add up. And the Widow+10 headshot damage is awesome.
I'm just upset the stupid Dr Pepper giveaway refused to give me the Sentry Interface.

Okay, so I'll watch my armours bonuses a little, but not worry too hard about it.

Why shouldn't I scan straight away? I've already scanned all three planets in the starting system, which shouldn't be too bad

It's fine to scan right away, but Miranda gives you an upgrade that increases the speed of the scanning tool which makes scanning much easier.

Ah that's good. Whilst I quickly figured out to only probe the spikes, it took too long to find them lol

Well what I do is I start at the top of the planet. I hold the left trigger I think it is and spin the right stick. Once I see a large spike I stop and probe it. Then move my way down to the next level.

Or you can just rapidly tap the trigger to go at normal speed and wait for a vibrate. It's not very exact, but it is faster than pre-upgrade.
