If flawless widescreen doesn't work with steam, I'll be tempted to download ME1 and ME2 through origin. I should treat myself since I just got a 8k increase today... but in California... I might not see any increase in my paycheck. Plus it just doesn't feel right buying the same games 3 times... even if I bought them for really cheap during winter combo steam sale.

Again... where are my video cards!?!?!?

That's awesome, man. Congrats!

That's the problem with high end setups like that. You rely on applications to get your total experience, and when even one doesn't work it can throw off your entire gaming mojo!

But seriously, for me... I love sci-fi and the Mass Effect series is just so well done that I never hesitate when it comes to buying anything ME if it means improving the experience.

Congrats. I bet taxes will take pretty much all of it. They did for me

Looking at my Origin account... looks like my DLC will transfer over. I will buy it since I know it's a game I will play over again... and take different paths.

Well I get a promotion and a cost of living adjustment. It ends up being pretty favorable on my end

I didn't say it's not a nice place to live... maybe... LOL... It just isn't paradise compared to other places you lived.

I did drive there once in a while to buy things tax free...

woah easy easy haha

its not bad in northern delaware in the suburbs like newark and pike creek but the closer you get to jersey or lower slower like dover the worse it gets

and Im with you ninja mouse, Im a big sci fi guy and mass effect 1 really captivated be when it was released, just such an epic start to a universe

my favorite part of that game was at the end when you break through the elevator on the citadel to attack the reaper, the scale of the reaper combined with the interior pedals of the citadel surrounding you just really stuck with me all these years

yeah I think Im going to have to download the series now that I think about it

that is after I give mechwarrior a spin

sorry for the DP but this is annoying as ****

just downloaded the mass effect trilogy on origin

installed ME1 to start playing

realised it was going to install on my SSD so I changed it to install everything on my hard drive which has way more space (the only stuff I keep on the ssd are the OS and BF3 because I basically built the computer for battlefield)

so I get the game installed and when I hit play it gives me the "syncing with cloud" popup

then nothing happens

all the search results I have seen say that you need to run the program as administrator to get it to launch, but I have tried that to no avail

I have exhausted my knowledge of what to do aside from breaking down and un-installing it and trying again

It is nice, especially for the cost. San Diego was nice too, but it didn't warrant the cost. I wouldn't be going to Hawaii if my paycheck wasn't going to double and my house was free.

I have no clue for what can cause that

I just installed ME1 as well and had an issue where I would click play game (in steam) and the application would crash before it even opened.

I fixed it by going into the mass effect folder and changing all .exe files to run as administrator, and to run in compatibility mode for windows xp service pack 2.

Then you go into the Mass Effect > Binaries and do the same for all .exe files there as well. Works fine now.

This is such a fun series to revisit every couple of years because there is so much depth you forget so much and when you replay it there is always something "fresh".
