  1. Being online is a blessing for buyers of this game looking at this list eh?

  2. Bioware are also working on a new Mass Effect II patch as there are problems caused by the ‘Backstory/Genesis Comic’
    Here’s the official Bioware thread:

  3. I’ve been waiting for the patch before starting my third play-through, but I don’t mind if it doesn’t arrive until at least several days after Portal 2.

  4. “The options menu now includes auto-attack.”
    Single best line ever. My thumb was getting tired from button mashing -_-

  5. PS3 patch has been approved by Sony, will be online tomorrow worldwide.

  6. I’ll be getting this when the complete version or GOTY version releases.
