Mako Effect by JamesDonaldson Mako Effect by JamesDonaldson
Mass Effect 2 is out, but I wanted to do a comic on Mass Effect 1 before it was too late.

Even with the PC port having 'better' Mako controls -that still couldn't save you if you wanted to reach that mineral deposit sitting up the side of the mile high cliff.

Just saw this via Tali Zorah Vas Normandy's Facebook page, I could NOT stop laughing.  Beautiful and funny comic strip, it actually made my morning.  Thanks! :)

Walk it off, Tali. You have gameplay ally immortality, quit whining.
And Wrex, don't make me headbutt you.

Why does Tali look like she would have at least 4 fingers? (Because you can't see her thumb.)

I was find driving and shooting, that still didn't mean I didn't get pissed trying to reach a mineral spot only to have the Mako taking 30 and even 180 degree auto-turns as you try find the right way up a cliff face. XD

Believe I'm not a completionist but I must have driven over every part of every planet XD

See, everyone complains about the Mako controls and I can never understand why. The only problem I ever have with the dang thing is the fact that it can't scale a sheer cliff without falling and busting a tire...

Seeing as there were no vehicles in Mass Effect 2, I take it that's why you're confused, Mass Effect 1 had many vehicle-sections in both the main and side "planet exploration" quests.

It wasn't really bad, just a number of locations were in locations that the Mako (ME1's vehicle) couldn't get to too well.

Yes, true on all points. But at the time of my comment, someone was wishing to drive a vehicle in Mass Effect 2, and I merely answered their question, nothing more. My opinions on the vehicles have no bearing to me pointing out something to help them.

Okay. Throwing it out there; you can get Silver for no cost, all you need is a Windows Live ID. Some games let you use Silver live so you can download stuff for games. Others like Halo and junk need Gold to work. Just so you know.
