Jesus! Look at that Turian fleet closing in on some Reapers! There are gonna be some massive battles in this game for sure!

Plus. I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Normandy looks GREAT in Alliance colours!

Roll on March 6th!

Re: Mass Effect 3

^They named their Shepard "Gorilla"? Cute.

I like that the enemy health bars have become segmented, it looks like it gives you a much better sense of the damage you're doing (or not doing, as the case may be.)

Also, am I crazy or is that a different voice actor for Mordin?

Re: Mass Effect 3

So, looks like it's about time to upgrade back to XBOX LIVE GOLD again with the demo out in less the 2 weeks and the game out in barely a month. Damn that game is costing me alot.
Collectors Edition = $90
Live Gold for Multi = $55
Turtle Beach Headphones = $80

Grand Total: $225 for the complete glory that will be Mass Effect 3.

Plus I'll probably end up gettin it for PS3 at some point. So add on another $70.

Still.......WORTH IT.

We will need to get a Trekkbbs Special Forces squad going.

One, Microsoft is giving away Gold to anyone who downloads the demo, and two, you can get the Live Gold cards for at least $20 off at various vendors online.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Wait, you have to PAY to access the multiplayer servers on a console? Sod that for a game of conkers, I'll stick to PC gaming methinks!

Which BTW probably means I'm out of the squad since I doubt the MP will be cross platform.

Re: Mass Effect 3

I played the first two on the 360, so I might as well finish up the trilogy there. I am not going through at least 10 different playthroughs all over again just to play the game on PC or PS3!

The PC route at least would be relatively easy, with Gibbed's ME2 Save Editor (or the modified version, for that matter).

I will also be finishing the trilogy on Xbox. I received a free PC copy of ME2 when I purchased a new copy of Dragon Age II for Xbox, but outside of SWTOR and STO I'm not much of a PC gamer.

^If necessary I think you could even use the Gibbed editor to reproduce a custom appearance as I'm pretty sure it works with xbox save files too. Handy little program that.

Personally, I've used it to do the non-intended romances (i.e. femshep with Tali, Miranda or Jack) just to see what'll happen if I import them into ME3. Also used a version of it to fix the Conrad Verner flags and finally get the paragon version of his encounter.

I'm going PC for the trilogy and PS3 myself.

Not on the PS3 you don't

And its a better working console that uses blu ray technology so you only have to deal with ONE disk to play a game.

Re: Mass Effect 3

If you can put up with the out of sync sound and somewhat worse graphics then the ps3 version is ok. atleast in regards to ME2.

Yeah, if I had a PC capable of running the games well enough (which I don't, sadly), I'd definitely go the save editor route. Oh well.

I'm not sure what you've seen/heard, but sound was perfect for me on my PS3 playthroughs of ME2, and the game looked frigging great to me.
