Deserves it's own thread. Holy shit is this hard! :lol:

I said it in the other thread, but I'll say it again here. The first Krogan Battlemaster fight SUCKS. I'm an Adept, and the first ~10 levels or so worth of talent points I put into armor, class training and assault rifles, so the only biotics I had were warp and throw. No life, no statis, just pure "holy fuck I am getting destroyed" for about two hours. Ended up beating the fucker, but just barely.

Did Husks always blow up next to you on Normal mode? I don't really recall that, but the last runthrough of this that I did was at level 60 for achievements, and I had my whole squad decked out. Anyway, one of the side missions has you go to a research lab and just check on some engineers, and they're turned into husks. Like 15 of them at once, in this little area full of boxes, all of them kamikaze-ing at you to blow up next you. I ended up having my squad die/unity about 4 times, because the only way I could kill them all was to kite them around in circles waiting for overload to be back up.

I'm level 15 now, and will give that a shot, Josh. I don't have any of the biotic achievements, and am going to get 'em all on this runthrough. Kind of a bummer I can't fully achieve it, with the Faction Ally stuff being once per playthrough.

I can't imagine how ridiculous the Matriarch fight is going to be.

Seriously, Singularity is ridiculous. It will end entire fights for you. It just sucks because the cooldown is so stupidly long.

The only thing about going biotic is that, unlike my Soldier, you spend a shitload of time flipping around the ability wheel. It would be nice if I could bind more than one ability to a button.

I went Adept my first playthrough. It was nice eventually getting to pistols that just don't overheat. I basically just used Warp occasionally and Singularity, and shot everything else.

Ran with Tali and Wrex too. Tali's explosives fit really well with Singularity, and Wrex could Warp bosses.

I beat ME1 on Insanity, you kinda have to go through it with a stacked ranked-up character. All I found for difference between the difficulty levels is the enemies have a billion more hit points, but their tactics, numbers, and abilities aren't any more difficult.

ME2 though, I'm on an insanity run right now and it's totally a frigging blast. The first mission IMO is hard as hell b/c all you have is the little handgun and you have a ton of robots coming at you. Later as you get more weapons, it becomes quite a bit easier, but I've heard the last level is ridiculously hard. I'm looking forward to it :agreed:

Oh and Chris, Soldier class or Vanguard. Adept in ME1 is pretty hard, but in ME2 it's great b/c Singularity is friggin' awesome in ME2.

I'm making my way through it starting from scratch, but damn is it tough. I'm at the last part of Bring Down the Sky and it's taken me about 3 hours. It's like playing Counter-strike, the enemy AI is a shitload better, they regen health/shields like mad, and every trash fight is a 5 minute game of hide and seek. :lol:

I think I might casual the rest of the adept, just for fun, and do Hard/Insane on my Soldier. It's not that I can't do it on hard w/the newbie character, it'll just take me 9 fuckin' years. :lol:

It's got to be damn near impossible if you're starting from scratch :lol:

Good luck :yesway:

That krogan with the geth you were talking about is one of the toughest fights in the game.

Yes, it sucked massively. :lol: Especially since I had Garrus, who dies immediately, and no biotic anything to try and stop the bastard from charging in and shitting on me. :lol:
