Hahaha. I love the elevator scenes in ME2, the conversations that take place between Garrus and Wrex are occasionally quite hilarious.
Olo, I think you are a bit confused here mate. Elevators, like the Shinji, were features from ME1 that were taken out of the second game due to fanboy backlash. When said fanboys realized that Bioware would have to replace said elevator rides with gasp
loading screens, there was even more raeg. Apparently Bioware did such a good job masking the loading screens in ME1 that people actually thought the long elevator sequences were part of the main game. If Arrival is any indication, the elevator rides are poised to make a return for ME3.
My Imported soldier from ME1 - specced out to squad incindiary and squad disrupter ammunition, along with adrenaline and damage spec.
Combine this with Garrus and Grunt with all upgrades - I pissed my way through the final battle without a second thought, hell - I pissed my way through most of the game without much trouble.
Revenant machine gun for the fucking win.
That's basically what my little brother did, although he hated the idea of "using dumb powers" so ignored Adrenalin Rush most of the game. When I pointed out to him that that + Widow resulted in perfect headshots, he never went back.
So moving on, what about Mass Effect 3.
What I want to know, is if Earth's Liberation is the Suicide Mission this time round, what will the final boss be?
From the GI article, it sounds like it is going to be even more epic than that, with dozens of different endings depending on which of the main powers you have on your side (Quarians, Krogans, Rachni, etc) and, oddly enough, on who you used in your main squad throughout the game. Personally, I hope there is a sacrifice the earth option, as all my colonist Sheps are far more worried about Reapers taking over the freaking Citadel than some random backwater planet.
