£2.50 is great for anyone who hasn't jumped on board yet. I pretty much played 1 to death on 360 though. Anything new for PC?

Also, what's the DRM for the Steam version? I seem to recall people complaining about DRM when it first came out, dunno if there's a difference between disc/download versions though.
#2
hated 1 but loved 2
#3
Steam is DRM so it shouldn't be a problem, I don't know if you need a GFWL account or not (like GTA4) but it isn't much hassle if you do at this price :).
#4
I thought ME1 was better than ME2, apart from graphics... the planetfall moon buggy stages were class, now only feature as a small part of one of the dlcs in ME2 from what I remember, and the planet mining minigame in ME2 sucked bigtime.. without it the game was very short. When they release the ultimate edition with ALL DLCs then i'd be interested... until then... ME2 offer is bit COLD, but heat added for ME1.

Neither game uses GFWL, but you need a free EA/Bioware account to access the DLC.

ME 1 is a good price, probably better buying Dragon Age 2 for £10'ish and getting ME2 free (if they are still doing that offer?)

Bought ME1 last time it was on offer. Tried playing for a couple of hours but really cant seem to get into it, must give it another try some time.

Have some heat though.
#12
ME1 on PC is better than on the 360, because the PC has an improved inventory system and lower load times (which were the biggest flaws in the 360 version).

ME does take a bit to get going, but it's well worth persevering with it.

DA2 was so poor compared to DA1 that they had to entice everyone with ME2 to sell it on PC...lol
#15
both brilliant games and definitely worth getting. worth noting that both have free dlc that can be activated on steam as well (requires a bioware/ea account but no details)
#16
is the dlc for mass effect 1 still around?
i get page not found when clicking dlc from the launcher and when clicking it ingame i dont get a list of stuff to buy?
mass effect 1 doesn't seem able to be registered on bioware site either?
dunno but DA2/ME2 both went fine.
#17
I've played this on the Xbox and have been waiting for Mass Effect 1 to pop up again on Steam (I didn't want the annoying DRM that comes on retail discs that you still have to deactivate if you plan on reinstalling your computer) and was regretting not picking it up at Christmas when it was a fiver. Kinda glad I waited now. :)

Off for another space adventure with Wrex and Garrus then!

I think the problem I have is I just seem to have spent most of the time talking to people and asking them lots of questions, and while I'm sure I could ask them less I dont want to miss stuff. Now dont get me wrong, I do want story but I also want a bit more action. Does it stay like this or is there more action going forward?

After the first part with that ton of talking (you'll definitely be able to tell when that "chapter" is over), you certainly get into the first person shooter aspect of it, and far more action happens seeing that you're actually undertaking the important missions (trying very hard not to be spoilery here). The story is still strong throughout, but the beginning is more of a slowly-paced intro that you can zoom through if you really want and the rest is (in my opinion, at least) the perfect balance of action and story. Try it again, I implore you! :)
#20
Both completely different games. 1 was an RPG, 2 was a shooter, 3, unfortunately, is all shooting, nor RPG, which is why I wont be buying day one.

Good price for Mass Effect 1 though, pretty bad for the 2nd one though.

Takes a while for the story to get going, but once it does, it blows the 2nd one away. If you put the time into it, its one of the most intense and rewarding games you can play, and it actually entices you to play through the game multiple times, unlike other games which just tack on some poor multiplayer to increase its longetivity.

ME1 is great and well worth the money. ME2 is not so great because of all the stripped out RPG options, but will be needed when 3 comes out so you know whats going on :)

Yeah i've read that quote, i'm also aware they've promised more RPG-like customisation and depth. Whilst you probably can't have it both ways - without having played the game how are we to tell if they're dumbing down, or simply making it more accesible? RPGs dont have to be impregnable fortresses with steep learning curves...
#29
having problems running the game, wont start. seems to be a common problem, followed a few fixes but cant get it started. On windows 7 64 bit. Un-installing and will download again see if that works. But end of day got it for 360 and only cost £2.50, but still a wee bit annoyed :(

Unfortunately its impossible to appeal to make an RPG that appeals to the masses, as the masses prefer generic FPS games such as CoD which involve minimal effort which results in killing people online. I'll still play it for the story conclusion, but it will more than likely be a rental, as 3rd person shooters get stale pretty quickly after completion.

I'm really hoping that the change of mechanics involves the shooting and cover mechanics more than anything, as updates to the combat is always welcome. I just hope it doesnt end up being a sci-fi Dragon Age... those games are awful.

Not sure what you've already tried, but I also had problems at first (also running 64bit Win 7) and got it working by running steam as admin and then launching it, only had to run steam as admin the first time.

tried everything mentioned in forums, the last thing I done worked, although Steam games are meant to be patched, but downloaded latest patch and it work right away. This has worked with people who have tried everything, although some people say you should not patch it as steam does this automatic. But got it working. cheers for reply.

I bought ME1 on day of release after the hype.. Hated it.. It sat on my shelf for a year until I gave it another try.. Hated it even more.. Sat on my shelf until last Christmas, when I gave it another try and played it through to completion twice in a row without a break in between, and now regard it as one of the finest games in my collection! It really is about your state of mind when you pick up and play a game, I think.. I used to adore the Need For Speed series, now I can't stand them..

Personally, I preferred ME1.. More of an RPG with action elements, whereas 2 is an action game with RPG elements.. Plus, the "Build Your Team!" aspect of ME2 gets awfully repetitive.. It's a much more polished game though, very slick and beautiful to look at.. Carries the narrative on nicely too..

Incidentally, hasn't ME2 been significantly cheaper than this? Like £2.99 cheap? Even if you can't get that price, around a fiver seems to be market value.. ME2 at £3 is a must buy though :)

thanks, never thought of them making a different hub site for their newer/older games.

where is 2nd cheaper atm?
#37
there is a thread on steam forums about the dlc for both games. me2 needs the bioware account to download the installer and an in-game login to activate (seems an one-off) but me1 just needs the installers, which are a **** to find - steam forum has a direct link to a bioware page where you put in the code and get the installer.

you can still buy me2 paid dlc from bioware site, no idea on me1

I would pay $9.99 for ME2, but not £9.99. It is priced at $9.99 for Steam users in the states, any way around that for us?
