Mass Effect's impact on the RPG genre is undeniable. Now, Sarcastic Gamer offers this smart little survival guide. Some really great tips in here for the new player and veterans alike.
From the article: "It takes at least 3 play-throughs of Mass Effect to unlock that 1000 gamerscore, and a lot of planning on the player's part as to which achievements you want to go after in which difficulty. Here are some tips to make the decision easier.
*Pick a specialist class - Soldier, Adept, or Engineer. You can do many things with the combined classes, but you won't be getting all the achievements. Choosing a mixed class means you won't be able to use every ability for the set number of times. During battle, make sure to use the weapons or abilities you need achievements for constantly."
