Default Mass Effect

Have a question on Mass Effect. I've never played the first one and created my character in the second one. Anyway, with the 3rd one coming out soon, I thought I'd go back and play 1 but I'm not sure if I can use that character or have to start from scratch?

You mean import the save from Mass 2 to Mass 1? Or Mass 1 to Mass 3? You should be able to from Mass 1 to Mass 3 I believe.

I like how the POP at GS states "Game for the experienced gamer and newcomer" You do not need saves from Mass 1 or Mass 2 to enjoy the game. Which is true but it brings more of your own story as it's the Shepard you created and have carried though two games. To not have him and start from new would suck.

Your first response neoz, use the character I created in 2 in 1 or will I have to basically start from square one. I know the graphics aren't are great on the first one, but I like how my character resembles me in the 2nd one and would like to use him.

I don't think you can carry over your save from 2 to 1, so you'll probably have to start all over again bud. As far as I know it only works 1 to 2 and then it'll be 2 to 3 and maybe 1 to 3.

As here is come reading material.

Doesn't look like Mass 1 will be able to transfer to Mass 3. Only in progression, so Mass 2 saves only it looks like.

Yep, get to start over again. Too tired to do this tonight. Worse case scenerio I'll have my wife create my character. I believe she did that when I lost my original character, which looked like a Hollywood version of me. I'll read that link tomorrow and thanks.

Thanks again for that link neoz. I just read up on things and got the gist of things. I'm trying to wrap up my ME2 gameplay before I go back to the beginning. Seems I don't have enough time to play both right now. I like the way I break codes, door and safe's in this one. Apparently my only choices is deal with that fast ass code breaker or blow up things to access things in ME. I wonder if the ME3 demo went live today? I had heard they were having some issues and postpone it according to their Facebook page.

Thanks, it is weird. Some of the 360 folks are posting in the PS3 thread for whatever reason I've downloaded it on both of my consoles, but haven't had a chance to play. Haven't decided if I'm just playing the set up or customize my character. Played a little bit of 1 last night. Man that easy decoding is becoming a *****. I think I need to melt some stuff down to plastique because I'm not fast enough to always hit the right letters How do the graphics look on this one neoz? With both games their seemed room for improvement.

OK, have a question on the Homecoming side mission. Is there a way to convince the husband to let them run the tests that will result in paragon? Right now my renegade is the only option it is giving me. I'm also wondering if these tests will help in the next game or it doesn't really matter?

Sorry to resurrect ancient thread but I didn't know whether to create a new thread and where to put that thread and UGH I'm at my wits end. Not with that - with the question I am about to ask that I hope to God someone can answer for me because I've been googling for hours and coming up with no straight answers.

So, I bought my 360 and made a LOCAL Gamertag (that part is really really important) now for whatever reason Microsoft do not allow local Gamertags to be upgraded to Live accounts so you have to make a separate Live account, download DLC through that onto the harddrive. ****ing stupid.

Now I've read mixed reports that say that if you download it via Live, switch back to your Local profile you can still use the DLC that is on the hardrive others say it's linked to the tag not the harddrive.

The problem is that the game I'm trying to get DLC for - Mass Effect 3 - doesn't provide a clear answer on this. If I log into my Live tag I can see the DLC checked off under the "DLC" option in the menu. However on my local tag I cannot log into EA servers because of the ****ing local can't be upgraded design so I have no way of checking whether the DLC is actually installed. I can't even just start using the Live tag as everything is saved against my local tag. I don't wanna pay the fifty or whatever quid all the DLC costs to find out I can't use any of it but apparently the only way I can find out if it's loaded is if I see extra missions added to the journal.

Ugh, feel like I'm gonna pull my hair out. Why make it so hard for me to give them my money?
