I had been looking forward to Mass Effect 2 for a long time.
I remember when Mass Effect was all the rage. I heard it was an XBox exclusive that would never come to PC and stopped caring immediately. That was a long time ago.
Then it came out on the PC. Jack was all “lol this is teh awsum”, so I bought it hardly shy of release day.
Luckily there were no such shenanigans for ME2. A pre-ordered Collectors’ Edition arrived last Thursday morning, a day before true European release. Despite being unable to get my DLC entitlements due to the internet fiasco, ME2 did not require internet activation and I was able to get started… While I wasn’t raging at BT tech support people.
Very minor spoilers may ensue, but I don’t explicitly discuss plot details so you should be okay.
