I read that spoiler. It seems I did everything right. (According to BioWare)

I blame lag.

Not really, I definitely underestimated Vanguards. I also found out Atlases have a one-hit kill move. I mean kill, no bleed out, just die. Who knew? I thought it and I were having a delightful boxing match before that.

Yeah, Vanguards are a beat but play havok on my nerves as I'm constantly switching between 100% and 0% shields. I can only play a few rounds before my nerves are shot.

Are you sure about that? I thought and still think there are a few bugs. Sometimes you just die in this game for no apparent reason. Also happened in the demo a few times. Like ZOINK; no blood or anything to reveal cause of death.. Not like there is really anything to reveal that, no bullet holes or anything.. Apart from the Female Krogan of part 2 of the demo that blow two Cerberus away with Wrex's shotgun I don't remember any blood splattered and death rattling enemies lying around.. It's so clean.. It also happened once when I was ducking for cover with no enemies close..

Yeah, I'm sure. Phantoms also have one. There's a special animation. Phantoms will skewer you with their sword. The Atlas picked my Krogan up and crushed him.

Yup, those are the only two things that can kill a Vanguard mid charge/nova as well.

The only time I tried a Vanguard in ME2, I charged, got stuck in a box and got killed.

Phantoms and Atlases both have an insta-death move at melee range. The Phantom one you can't even revive from.

Headshots are for infiltrators.

Speaking of which, a Salarian infiltrator just solo'ed gold.

Are Salarian infils using shotguns or what? Mine is not nearly as impressive as I expected it to be.

No matter how many times hear it.. the conversation between Liara and Sheperd about "omni-gel and that security upgrade" always makes me chuckle.

Which also makes me think, the odds of them re-using that car-chase style of sequence in some mission in ME3 or not.. hmm. To ponder.

Charge -> headshot while enemy stunned -> nova -> charge new target.

Charge -> headshot while enemy stunned -> nova -> charge new target.

Aren't you dead when you get sniped after nova? That's how things would work in PvP, I imagine.

What PvP? That's why you upgrade Nova to only take half of your shields instead of all of them.

Yeah, those samples are sounding great - much more like ME1 than ME2, thankfully.

Random thought - those "missions" you could pay to have influenced via the Shadow Broker once you'd completed it.

Odds on whether you'll get any "emails" or relevant effects in ME3 due to them?

Looking at the ending(s) what you did in the other games does not seem to matter a great deal.
