^^ Hey, see those buttons right up there ^^ that say "Mixed Alignment" "Renegade" "Paragon" underneath both "Male Shepard" and "Female Shepard"? Click on whichever corresponds to your choice to start downloading saves. Read below for news & announcements about this site.
**UPDATE 9/20/2019** It's 2019, Let's do an update!
Hey everyone! It's been exactly two and a half years since I did an update, so I guess it's about time!?
I approved "new" saves today, aka everything since early 2017. If you filled out the text box correctly, your save(s) has been approved. If you left the text box blank or just copied the questions in there without answering, your save was deleted. Also, I've always meant to say this, but so many of you leave nice messages for me at the bottom of the text box. It always makes me smile when I read them, thank you guys for that! I always delete them before approving, but they do mean a lot to me.
I've gotten more lazy about making sure the text box is formatted correctly, but if there's a good amount of information in there, it's approved. I didn't keep count but there were probably over 20 from each game approved today. Look for new saves in March, 2022 at this rate! :D
Hey do you have like, old mods that aren't on the Nexus that you think should be hosted somewhere? Or copies of BSN old posts that are useful that you think should be hosted somewhere? Let me know @annakie on twitter, maybe I can host those things where people may see them? I'm willing to help out with such things if they're necessary. Remember I do have mods hosted here, too. See the menu at the top of the page.
On a personal note, I'm pretty sad there's been no Mass Effect news lately, let's hope Bioware has a secret project that will surprise us all. Andromeda was a good game with some definite flaws, and it didn't deserve the hate it got, so I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.
I'm on my like eleventh playthrough of the original trilogy now. The amazing mods coming out for the games, especially ME3, have helped keep the series fresh. If you can, play the game on PC and head over to the Nexus sites for each game. My eternal love to the modders for Mass Effect Happy Ending Mod (+ other ending mod flavors like LIME and JAM), Citadel Epilogue Mod (aka the "I actually look forward to the ending now" mod), Expanded Galaxy Mod + all its extras, ME1/2/3 Recalibrated, Hair Mods as DLC, FemShep's Closet, ThaneMod & BackOff, MEModder, Priority Earth Overhaul Mod, Better Journal, Operation Paladin, Spectre Expansion Mod, Lights Effect, Project Variety, Respawn, ME3Explorer, Ark Mod, Omega Hub, Better Dreams, ALOT, and all the texture modders. I'm sure I forgot some of the ones that I love, sorry! But honestly, I couldn't imagine playing ME3 especially without all you guys ever again. <3
And to re-iterate, this site and masseffect2saves aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Still over 2k visitors a day(!!). The site doesn't even pay for itself anymore what with adblockers blocking out the few ads I have up, but I don't care. This site is for the fandom. Be good to each other.
**UPDATE 3/20/2017** Andromeda Launch Update!
We now know that original trilogy saves do not import into Andromeda. Therefore, the fact that I never got ME3saves up and running isn't much of an issue.
In addition, Bioware has gotten around to doing their own save file system with Mass Effect Archives. It's likely that from here, Bioware will probably do a Dragon Age Keep thing. So, any further Mass Effect Save site would likely be redundant, and that's before if Gibbed gets around to doing his own save tools.
I want to stress again, though, that Masseffectsaves.com and masseffect2saves.com WILL stay up for the forseeable future. Like, years. I may not do another update here ever again, but if I don't, I'm still going to keep paying the domain hosting bill as long as people keep visiting the site. I still get about 2500 visitors per day here and 1500 to ME2saves, so if it's still useful, it's staying around.
I did update the FAQ to have 2017 answers instead of 2011, and moved all of the pre-2017 news off this front page to the News Archive
PC players, Nexusmods now has sections for all 3 ME games with a lot of great mods there. I highly recommend you go there for your mods needs now that Bioware shut theirs down. Some of the stuff I host here is still useful, and not on Nexusmods though. Just sayin'. I wrote a blog post over here with some recommendations which will completely refresh your ME3 game. Hope this helps!
