She isn't tweeting - she's using a text-only quantum entanglement communicator.

Yeah, but such advanced technologies are beyond the grasp of our primitive minds, so to us it just looks like she's tweeting.

Re: Mass Effect 3

In this game, war assets and reputation add to a score that determines your choice of endings. You can play the single player, but you will find that meeting your desired score is more difficult. However, if you play the multiplayer, reaching the score becomes easier. I don't like that I have to play this game with a calculator and a notepad, and I don't like that I am hobbled as a player if I choose not to play multiplayer.

So how about you leave the calculator and notepad behind and just enjoy the story and game itself no matter what the ending is?

You can always calculate the game in subsequent replays and try other choices and approaches or simply go watch Youtube after a while to see the different endings (no matter how good a game is i rarely ever replayed a story driven game.. especially not something so big like Mass Effect that takes days or weeks of continuous play).

When I play ME3 I'm going to go in blind and I'm going to make decisions based purely on instinct. I'm going to screw up on some of those decisions and I'm not going to achieve a perfect victory with my main Shepard, but I'll own the consequences of those choices. In the future I may read up on the mechanics and pull off a perfect victory, but I certainly wont be doing that with my first Shepard, that would defeat the purpose of playing the game to me.
As long as the game is fair, I agree.

I don't think that all of the choices in ME2 were fair. At least one choice during the suicide mission had your team lying to you about their capabilities.

I suspect that the "get a good ending" system will be more straightforward this time - just do all the quests & don't be a dick...

Re: Mass Effect 3

Alliance forces have not hurt Reaper ship. No damage. It's coming straight for us. Straight for ME
This signal, going out and being rebroadcast everywhere… I think they picked it up. I led them here

Uh oh. Sounds like Emily is in trouble.

Indeed! It's actually very interesting, this whole twitter thing that is. I find myself sitting here waiting to see what happens next. Kudos to you Bioware! For actually making me give a crap about Twitter.

Re: Mass Effect 3

I know! I've never even once sat here and stared at a Twitter feed like this. They're actually telling a story here that's relevant to the game. I wonder if they're actually gonna kill Emily off, here.

I'm not gonna lie, I kinda wish we could have actually seen this happening, rather than just reading the story through Twitter. It's pretty entertaining.

Is anyone going to watch the midnight launch? It starts streaming on BioWare TV in half an hour. I'm still trying to decide if I want to or not.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Nah. I don't wanna see all those happy people with their copies when I have to wait till I get home from work tomorrow at 4. On a plus note, my girlfriend is awesome! She's driving 2 hours to pick up my collectors edition while I'm at work and she has the day off. Plus, she surprised me with my very own N7 curtains shes in the middle of making me for my gaming den. Real keeper this one, I love her!

Re: Mass Effect 3

Same here. Work until 4 tomorrow, but should come home to my collector's edition on my doorstep.

Also, anyone not reading the Alliance News Network twitter feed needs to do so, right now. I don't care if you don't like Twitter. This is plot relevant stuff, and it's getting intense. Holy hell, Emily. Don't do it! Don't do it!
