I haven't played any of the Mass Effect games, but plan to soon. So is it correct that I can import my Mass Effect 1 character into Mass Effect 2? Is it also correct that I can import my Mass Effect 2 character into Mass Effect 3?

I have Mass Effect 1 and 2 on the 360, I am trying to decide if it matters what version I get in regards to 3.

Thanks.

Yes. Get the same version. And Mass Effect is a truly amazing game. I just recently played the first one for the first time.

Ditto. About half way through Mass Effect 1 on 360. The visuals may have dated poorly but the game kicks my little bum bum (i.e. it's awesome).

Yes to all your questions. You can import your end game save of Mass Effect 1 into Mass Effect 2. Subsequently, you can then take the ME 2 save to ME 3.

I would recommend playing the whole series on Xbox since you got ME 1 and 2 on it already. You can take your shepard(and decisions) across the 3 games

Why not just get the new trilogy release? Available for either 360 or PS3. (I wonder how ME1 plays on the PS3?)

And yeah your characters _can_ carry over. Not sure if it is mandatory though if you want to make changes.

I already own 1 and 2 on the 360, have for quite some time. They have been in my backlog but that is about to be fixed.

Thanks guys.

Yeah, no reason to get the trilogy set if you own the first two.

you do yourself a disservice if you just stop there. Go all in and do all the dlc for 2 and three. Very fun! Insane story. cool characters. great universe.

I'm willing to bet that as much praise and attention as this series has gotten, it could reach near-starwars/startrek popularity if given enough time.

without giving away any spoilers, in ME 2 you have a chance to reset shepherd's class assignment. So in ME1, if you played as a soldier (like I did) and wanted to use the same character import, you can switch to a different class, like Vanguard (like I did). But from ME2 to ME3, you import character/choices/class without the option to change (unless you just start from scratch on ME3).

All Mass Effect games should most definitely be played on the same console.

This was largely done because two of the classes were completely redone after Mass Effect 1.

Mass Effect 1's Sentinel was redone to basically fill the same role as ME1's Vanguard, and ME2's Vanguard became a whole new class. The original Sentinel class in ME1 was incredibly useless.

I don't believe it was useless. It was the only class where you could have tech and biotic abilities.

Now that we're on the subject of ME1, I liked the majority of the armor types better. Colossis armor was a beast, and easy on the eyes.

agreed....i wish there were more armor options (that you dont have to pay for). I worked hard to get my squad decked out in Colossus Armor in ME1. The N7 armor was pretty useless in the first game

DVvM says:
It wasn't "useless" per se, it was just comparatively underpowered in both survivability and "ability to defeat bad guys" (particularly in the context of ME2 where you weren't fighting Geth all the time.)

So in between ME1 and ME2 the Sentinel was reworked to fit in the "tank" role that the Vanguard formerly occupied and the Vanguard was made into more of a "berserker" class with the addition of Biotic Charge.

I didn't play any on the same console! Or even different ones! :-)

I never played Vanguard in the SP, but in MP it is a blast!

There are no worst teammates in MP than Novaguards ;p

Well, except for bad Krogan players who try to kill everything with melee.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 28, 2012 7:13:27 PM PST
Haha, I was usually pretty good about not rushing into the middle of the wave and gettinf killed instantly.

Did you get some Live time cards to play again?

DVvM says:
The worst is when Novaguards trigger that bug where they get stuck in the air in the falling animation and then refuse to leave the game so the rest of the team has to play short-handed.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 29, 2012 4:40:54 AM PST
Never encountered that. Is it a 360 specific bug?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 30, 2012 7:45:34 AM PST
I probably use biotic charge and reave (my chosen squad power) more than any other Vangaurd power.

No, it was a common bug for months after release on all platforms. I think it's finally fixed though.
