The third one looks so wrong. That guy has a huge head and then a tiny tiny weapon, that may not even be tiny, but it sure looks that way, so uncanny.

Judging from these screenies, I can get the feeling than this iteration of ME is way more focused on gun combat than anything else, all I can see is explosions and big guns.

Prove me wrong SJosz?

It's been like that since the first game. I don't know for the weapon though.

So, Bioware didn't ditch the idea of low res textures after all...

After seeing comments about those Krogan guys, I'm wondering who here actually played the first game.

Well, the first game did get criticized for slow, clunky and repetitive combat... So they are naturally going the opposite way with it now. I'm just hoping they don't make the same kind of mistake as Insomniac with Resistance Fall of Man vs Resistance 2 and overdo it.

Well, yeah, but how often do you get the opportunity to paraphrase a Joseph Conrad quote with such fitting results?

It's a joke. Like anything with Michael Bay can be taken seriously.

shame.
it's a great game.

I'm really looking forward to ME2, regardless of the speculation about how it's going to be different from the first. as long as there's still tons of character customization and the same degree of production quality as in the original, the gameplay is an afterthought.

I can't imagine they would change it too much. they want people like me who have saved their Shepard from the first game to be able to jump in and pick up where they left off. I hope...

oh, and I think this is the first post I've ever made outside of the Off Topic forum.
ever.
