Playing as an Engineer has allowed me to storm my way through firefights with sheer ease. Rocking an Assault Rifle, and a Heavy Pistol. The pistol itself hardly ever gets used, since my Powers do most of the work before I even have to think about pulling the trigger.
Incinerate fully powered up chews through armored targets, and can usually one-shot kill any enemy without shields/barriers or armor. Overload Takes care of the Shields, and Sabotage handles turrets and blowing up the opposition's weaponry. With the weapon mods and such that I have, I've got just under a two second power recharge time.
14 hours into this game, and I'm finding it really hard to discuss anything else in the game. There are tons and tons of things that could be spoiled bigtime in this one. I've been finding myself cringing when I realize a few decisions made back in Mass Effect 1 could really come back to bite me in the ass.
Every time I alert the Reapers while scanning the galaxy, I find myself compelled to lead them on a Benny Hill-like chase around the current system's sun a few times before leaving the galaxy itself to escape.
Listed below are past ME 2 squadmates I've met up with once again. Could be considered a spoiler. (Highlight text to read)
Found Jack, Mordin, Thane, and Kasumi. Jack looks a lot like Tank Girl now. Wrex and Grunt are now some very humorous krogan. Wrex easily being towards the top of my list for Funniest ME 3 character.
Suggestion: Anything that could be considered any kind of spoiler, just set that text to black. Forces people to highlight the text to read, and no chance for accidental spoilers.
I'm a bigger X-Strike fan than you.
