Who said Commander Shepard was dead? According to Deeko, the July issue of OXM has Shepard on the cover, and a ten page article inside.
fuk yeah!!! Now leak the scans!!
I want a video! Give me some gameplay! I want this game right now.
lol why do 360 games have such corny names for the lead characters? Master Chief Commander Shepard Marcus lol you might as well call dude Commander reject.
F*ck yeah to your "f*ck yeah!" DUDE I'M WILLING TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE SH*TTIEST GAMING MAGAZINE IN THE WORLD TO READ THIS STORY! I absolutely love my Xbox 360 and even more, the game Mass Effect, but there is no denying that OXM simply sucks asshole. Literally. They suck rectum! They give sh*tty reviews. But who knows, maybe this story will save them... let it be so. GAME INFORMER FTW
Why did you even bother commenting?
You mean like Solid Snake, Sergeant Sevchenko, and Nathan Hale?
then the ones in Xbox games...
Hmmm... Cant wait to play this and go on the planets.
If they're not all barren wastelands and actually have some depth to them that makes them worth exploring (and that does NOT include random arbitrary collectible minerals or some crap like that), then I'll share your enthusiasm.
Yes, because we all know that all the planets should be overly populated, eh? -.-
I don't get why people think he's dead. It was just a teaser trailer, it's clearly indicating that at some point in the game, your ship probably explodes or your team goes missing and everyone *thinks* you're dead but it's just a big misunderstanding and you come back in a blaze of glory and eggs. That's what I got out of it the first time I saw it, I never once thought that he/she would actually be dead, that's just silly.
Yeah, it's kind of obvious...
Yea.. There is no way he would be dead. How else would your previous stats be transferred? Also, he didn't die in the first so, He has to at least make an appearance in the second.. And, not dead at the beginning like some people assumed. But, also, I agree with what you said. Especially after seeing that one video that showed the ship on fire. I would assume that because the ship is destroyed he couldn't transmit a signal. Just makes me wonder how he escapes and survives, and all that.. o.O
So it probably means he's officially dead, covered by the Council.
the council die in my 1st playthrough.
I ended up letting them die every time I played through.
SPOILERS: I made a career where i let them alive (they invite Mankind to the Council) and in the two other ones, i've let them die and chose who will be at the Council. If Mass Effect's save datas have indeed an influence on Mass Effect 2, i just want to see what differences you can have with those options.
Yea, I did the same! :D I wonder how much an impact the choices will have. For example, would the story be different if you.. *SPOILER* =P Saved Ashley, over Kaiden, and saved the council, then if you Saved Kaiden, over Ashley, and saved the council. o.O Hmmm, hopefully.. That would be cool and have LOTS of outcomes!
Mass Effect 2 is going to be even better than the first one, which was already in my top 5 games of all time. I cant wait to find out more about it at E3. I also wish Bioware would make a new Jade Empire. That game was awesome and deserves a sequel....crossing my fingers.
Eh... I still prefer KOTOR over Mass Effect.
I just want more diversity when you choose between the different characters. Story didn't really change outside of who flirted with you.
Oh yes! A Jade Empire sequel would be awesome! :D The order I like those games would be: 1. Mass Effect 2. KoToR 3. Jade Empire But, all three games are awesome and amazing fun.
so he/she makes a come back in the 2nd, yay i guess i can keep working on my recent save. http://tinypic.com/view.php... http://tinypic.com/view.php... http://tinypic.com/view.php... btw, i made two profiles so i can see two different perspectives of the game :)
Is that a new person? I dont remember her.... Edit just remembered you dont just play as a male.
I'm on the last profile now, I played them all with a diffrent ending so I can start off with Mass Effect 2 with the most choices. I even played some of those saved games a 2nd time through so I could max out my stats.
Nice To me the ending was how you say...epic. Your final decision was a pretty big one.
I agree the ending was epic! And, it was a big decision, But, it wasn't a hard one for me. =P The council treated me badly.. Bunch of meanies. =(
...so OUR Commander Sheppard didn't look that.....we played as the female. :/
Nice! can't wait for this game
i played as a female shepard how would they put that in the game?? hmm, also how n when did he die or in my case she, i don't remember this after beating the game...
Bioware teased fans with Shepard's death in a promotional video. Don't worry, I seriously doubt they're going to remove your choice of gender out of the game. Male Shepard is the default option for the game which is why he's on all the boxes and junk.
Yeah.. you will still be able to play as your female Shepard in Mass Effect 2. Shepard never died in the first game. There was a promotional, or a teaser, video that made people assume he died. But, it was probably just an attention grabber. However, I'm certain that there will be an event in the game that makes the [in-game] people assume or predict that he has perished. I highly doubt that Shepard will actually die, though.. Doesn't seem likely, or to me, make sense.
i see i never saw that teaser lol, yeah makes sense to still b able to play as my female sheppard cause then that would kill the game if that were to not happen, well good then can't wait for ME2 i hope they fixed all the bugs the first one had
Game of the Year for sure :D
Mass Effect 2 is going to be awesome. ME1 in my opinion was the greatest RPG ever made. ME2 is going to redefine the RPG genre. LONG LIVE BIOWARE!
I too love Bioware and Mass Effect. It is one of my favorite games on the 360 and the sequel is one of my most anticipated games.
WhooHoo! :D But, oh well, I never thought that Shepard was dead. Especially after seeing that one video a few weeks ago..
Yeah!!! badass commander is back :) Good to hear. Now I can´t wait for this game to be out :S...
Yea, that will be another story within itself.
