Garrus is my co-pilot.

Well, so is Thrall. I guess it's a big ship on a long cruise, then.

comment Cut-Scene Archive in Mass Effect Series
N.B. - many of the cutscenes in that folder are loading screen loops and shuttles descending on planets. That said, if you want to see pieces of the various endings, or clips of some of the battles, this is the way to go. Otherwise, it's to YouTube with you to find playthrough videos, because that's the main place you'll find what you're looking for.

comment Cut-Scene Archive in Mass Effect Series
OMG Bink! I can remember back in, like, 1999, we wanted to compress a class movie and one of my friends suggested using Bink, since it was pretty lossless with respect to our other choices and also free. It pleases me to see that it's made it this far (and that I get to pull a Hipster Gamer/Internet-Person and say I knew about that before it got super-popular).

comment Is importing a character from Mass Effect 1 to Mass effect 2 worthwhile?
Yeah, a save editor will go a long way if you want to keep things yours and not lose out with the premade choices (e.g. there are some characters that are a lot more fun if you didn't make the same choices as the default (e.g. a salesman on the Citadel won't be as nice if you let the Council die)).

Essentially! MAN I wish the script hadn't been leaked.

comment Fabricate Mass Effect 3 File
You can edit your save file partway through in ME2 using Gibbed (to add resources, for example, or unlock Legion for squad use from the start). If Gibbed for ME3 is at all similar, theoretically you could do the same thing, ticking off the various mission flags you know you've done already. That said, it's not an exact thing since not everything is accounted for, and there may indeed end up being conflicts. Kotekzot's right, though - having to restart and restore an ME2 game is a pain since you have to sit through the opening Normandy destruction before you can do anything to the files.

comment Who's the little boy in Mass Effect 3?
I wouldn't say my hopes were up at that time, just that in April of 2012 the ending was arguably ambiguous and Indoctrination Theory wasn't out of the realm of possibility. My speculation here, based on the data we had at the time, was just what I said (that he's a just kid when we first meet him), not that Indoctrination Theory was right or anything.

comment Mass Effect 2: Delay Reaper IFF Instalation
I hadn't wanted to mention Kasumi above, since you said no spoilers, but I'm glad you have her because not only is she acceptable as a tech expert but she's hilarious and introduces you to the gun that killed two presidents. Zaeed's just a delightful crusty tank.

comment Mass Effect 2: Delay Reaper IFF Instalation
Hooray! And I'm glad you're having fun. I've never taken the time to do an Insanity run, mainly because I'd probably drive myself insane with some of the fights (like that one in Arrival where you get an achievement for staying up through all the waves).

comment Defend against Biotic Attack in Mass Effect 1
You know, I thought I could answer this, and then I realized I had no idea either, and had been just as frustrated at that stupid swooning thing as Starkers. So, I too would like to know how to avoid these, beyond blitzing biotics asap, which is obviously a pain in places like Noveria.

comment Why can't I 'enter' the Omega 4 relay?
Have you completed at least 5 loyalty/side missions since getting all your dossier squaddies? That could be doing it.

comment Is there a downside to not be all Renegade or Paragon?
When you hit ME2 - If you yourself are of a mixed Paragon/Renegade persuasion, you can edit your game file to give yourself a load of both points, so you never need worry about having enough to make the choice you want to take. I have personally played a mostly-Paragon game in 2 but there are certain Renegade options I will always, always take, because MAN are they satisfying. Even then, I was able to pass reputation checks. Also, Shadur is correct about that one interrupt. But yeah, ME1's talent page was... confusing sometimes.

comment How can I change casual clothing in Mass Effect 2?
Whoops! Basically what Kexlox said. I don't know how I didn't see that before; clearly I can't read. But hey, now you don't have to go to YouTube proper.

comment Mass Effect 2 Heavy Weapon Choice
I almost always carried the Arc Projector (chain lightning ftw). The Collector Particle Beam is pretty good too. The Cain I think I only really used for one boss. But yeah, I loves me the arc projector.

comment Which Mass Effect 2 DLCs are relevant for Mass Effect 3's story?
@DjangoReinhardt - Arrival is the prologue to ME3 in the sense that where you start the game is directly due to the events in Arrival. The reason I say it's skippable is because none of the choices you make in it matter to gameplay/story in ME3. The story for ME3 assumes the events of Arrival without you actually having to do them - Shepard was there even if you weren't, whereas if you don't do LotSB Liara still gets what she wants but you weren't there to help. I mean, really, I suppose technically LotSB is the most skippable in terms of story because of that but DUDE it's so much fun.

comment Which Mass Effect 2 DLCs are relevant for Mass Effect 3's story?
Arrival you can safely skip, if you're looking to save money. It's fun and all, but it doesn't have the same ramifications in ME3 as Kasumi, Zaeed, and Overlord (LotSB doesn't have as many ramifications either, but it's a helluva lot of fun and if you do it before the end of ME2 there are benefits for you in-game). But yeah, tiddy is right.

comment When to play Mass Effect 3 DLC?
Is it something you could do right before the Cerberus base, since that's where the game last saves you (and where, if you've already finished the game on a character, it automatically boots you back to after the credits roll)?

comment How do I unlock privacy in multiplayer modes mission settings?
I'm assuming you're not referring to the Quick Match screen, where you can only search for public games (and so there is a lock on the team settings thing).

Still happening, and now asari adept/justicars have Reave too! Hooray (and by "hooray" I mean "man that woobly noise can bite me").

comment How do I use Decoy effectively?
I upgraded Decoy up to rank 6, in part because I was going off of a recommended build, and I've found that its explosion is really handy for reminding me I need to recast him if I'm looking somewhere else. Silly, yes, but sometimes every little thing helps.
