While it is clearly a bluff I will be so jee-darn pissed if Shepard is actually dead

Do not disallusion yourself brothers, today we die, our bodies broken and our souls shattered, we will be remembered as corpses on a battlefield.Raise hell my brothers for one day our great Father will hear of our struggle, and he will be honoured to call us his Sons.

I should have maybe explained better, they have released a teaser trailer, I won't say more but if you don't want to know more don't watch this video, it is a minor spoiuler for the next games plot.

The release date is somewhere around March 2010, though it likely be a bit late, as with most games, but I would put my next out and say definately 2010. And my Shepard did every single side mission on hardcore mode, had the best everything, and all my team had lvl10 spectre gear, I was level 60, there is no way I would die. I personally don't think he will be but you never know. And keep your save data it will be useful in the next game.

On the plus side, it seems the rest of the Normandy crew is still around and kicking. Perhaps you'll play as the new leader of the old squad?

This could be a way of them telling us they can't migrate our progress in ME1, so we have to make a new character in ME2.

Which would suck because I bought ME1 on release day and have had a Shepard ever since then (lvl60).

hmm, I played it with a friend, and we kinda thought it had an amazing story, lovely grapichs, a good combat-system and o.k side missions.
Downside? damned short main story to boot, which made it not so worth the money in our opinion... xD
Still gonna play number 2 when it gets released... (drools)
Migrating the character from the previous game seems like an awful waste. It should only be allowed after you have finished the game at least, so as not to ruin the game by already having an owerpowered char from the start.

94% of teens have moved on to rap. If you are part of the 6% who still listen to real music, copy and paste this into your signature.
95% of teens would cry if they saw the Jonas Brothers at the top of a skyscraper about to jump. Copy and paste this if you are part of the 5% that would yell "DO A FLIP!!!"

Completely agree.
I was in love with the game until i saw how irrelavent the side quest were to the main game (Bioware promised that small descitions would greately affect the final end game prior to release... ill link the quot later when i get home) and how short the main game was to begin with...
