    Well, here's the first bit of info for Mass Effect 2.

    If this is to be believed, I think we'll be seeing a much closer look at the Geth and how they are made.

    Thoughts?

    Cool. If it's true, I didn't much like "him/her" anyway. >_>

    Explains why there is a new patch in the works for the first game, or at least they are saying there is a patch in the works

    This looks awesome but Im a little confused is the Geth in the clip holding Shepards "body" or is it wearing his armor? It looked like the N7 marker was on the Geth itself.

    I'm guessing the Geth transformed Shepard and either you play as the newly transformed Shepard or he'll be the final boss.

    Although, maybe you don't play as Shepard and you have to search for him and what happened to him.

    They always have to switch it around somehow. Seriously, you can't have an RPG when you've already unlocked everything.

    Well, you could, but I've never seen it happen.

    Machine was wearing shepherd's armor. Did the world look like Noveria to anyone else?

    Fuck that, I liked Sheppard. I would rather play as him then a new character. I hope it's not like KOTOR to KOTOR 2. The Exile was alright but nowhere near as cool as Revan was.

    If Shepard could survive everything he did in the first game then I don't think anything short of a Reaver could kill him and especially not some Geth. I'm calling BS on Shepard dieing.

    Well the armor is only special forces for humans... maybe Earth was attacked by the Geth? Shepherd's KIA status is too throw them off while he's on his ultra top secret mission.

    Well the Cerberus group will probably be playing a major role in the next game, maybe they've moved on from bio experiments to Geth? Geth/human hybreds?

    I doubt Shep died. According to Bioware you play through the trilogy as Shep can't do that if he/she is dead.

    Doubt they would kill Shepard, But turn him into a Human/Geth hybrid via Quake/Doom/Resistance methods they just might do. Would be kind of epic if you where a Tech specialist in the last game.

    This looks to be a turnout to an awesome game which I am definitely going to play. And I won't mind so much playing as someone other than Shepard, it'll most likely be a good thing.

    I played through it and bought an Xbox for it awhile back.. You know, when they said there was no chance in hell for a PC version. Then EA bought them, lol. I've forgotten about the story enough that I should be able to play it again soon, yay me.

    I am still fucking pissed that we haven't received any real information about the patch for MEPC. The one they said was "coming soon" 5 months ago.

    Mass Effect 2 looks fucking awesome.

    That beeping noise just annoys me in one of those videos...

    From the looks of it, we aren't going to see much from the Geth compared to ME1. LOKI mechs are probably Cerberus and the ship that attacks the Normandy in the trailer is probably theirs as well.

    Official site reveals you are teaming up with Cerberus... so no.

    Looks like a very cool game, the company makes some very quality stuff. I'm looking forward to Dragon Age as well.
