    i never played the first one, but i am trying the second due to recommendations by otters

    i don't think i'm enjoying this as much as i should since i don't really have a clue wtf is going on

    Planet scanning was the only part I didn't like about the game

    ME2 is a good game but it's not really an RPG. ME1 was a good game but the inventory system was horrible.

    You shouldn't have to do that much scanning though to max out everything.

    yea, you are basically a one man army in ME2, ME1 teammates actually helped you.

    Playing the second without playing the first seems kind of odd...

    I would imagine the epicness is totally diminished if you didn't play the first, knowing the experiences of the crew.

    You get better at planet scanning, but after about 30hrs I was nearing end-game and just used a save game editor and gave myself a shit load of minerals. I just feel like I saved myself time, rather than cheated.

    My team mates acted fine for me in ME2 but I would actively command them to do things, otherwise they were as you guys describe.

    Mine go back and forth between too much and too little :rofl: Sometimes they'll be raping the opposition before I can even get a shot off, then sometimes they stand around doing nothing while I'm getting my ass handed to me by husks :uh:

    Honestly, it didn't make that much difference IMO.

    It did cause me to have some disappointments though, I expected to be able to really visit the Citadel again instead of just one area and an office.

    side missions. Kelly usually will tell you to go chat with your teammates.

    And :werd: to Planet scanning. It got to the point where I had a ton of random minerals and not enough credits. Want to buy planet full of credits

    each one will have a loyalty quest. you need to get pretty high paragon or renagade and the class with max para/ren stats before you do the loyalty quests.

    I think it's important to play the first before the 2nd. At least to understand the characters and the storyline. I think they downplayed the whole spectre thing which I liked a lot in ME1

    Just keep talking to your crew whenever you get back to the ship.

    protip: look online for a list of Element Zero and Platinum rich planets. Will save you hours of scanning
