Nope, my narrative option is set to Full Decisions, and I am making my own choices during dialogue interactions - but, like Garrett observed, it feels like I'm presented with choices less often in conversations than during the first two games.

You replied too damn quickly; I was just about to come back and edit that post.

I just ran into an old friend on the Citadel, and I was presented with dialogue choices for almost every time Shepard needed to say something, so it looks like perhaps the frequency of choices is on an increase.

Its funny, because I feel the same exact way. Its good to hear the rate of choices picks up though. The reviews also say there are plenty of choices so I guess it just rail roads you in the begging

Yep. It looks like I spoke too soon. There's quite a few dialogue choices opening up now.

Has anyone played the DLC missions yet? I'm trying to decide if I want to pick it up.

I'm playing the the DLC mission right now. Without getting into spoilers, yes. Pick it up. It's pretty awesome, though it's also very apparent that it should have been a part of the main game. Day One DLC for the loss.

Right, I think it's time for me to avoid this thread until my copy arrives, hopefully on Friday...

Re: Mass Effect 3

You know what I find interesting is that while many people thought that Mass Effect 3 was going even further into the cover based shooter direction, I find that in many games the game has picked up on some of the RPG elements that I missed from ME1. Character customization is much improved when compared to ME2 and yet doesn't feel as overly clunky or time consuming as it did in ME1. It seems to me that the really hit the sweet spot this time.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Not exactly an auspicious start. The game wouldn't import my Shepard's face correctly. Had to remake her from scratch.

It was all uphill from there, though. So far it has the makings of a better story than ME2 had, although I suppose I'd better hold off on saying that until the end.

Yeah, makes me glad that I wrote down all of my custom Shepards' face codes back when I was playing through ME2. My current Shepard uses the Sheploo face, but all my other ones have custom faces. It would have sucked having to do them all over again from scratch. I'll probably have to edit them a bit like I did for the demo, but that's not as big a deal.

Re: Mass Effect 3

The first broken quest I thought I came to had to do with Colonel Tie and the Blue Suns, but I was able to figure that out after exploring more....and more.

I'm only bout 5 and a half hours into it right now though. But its been fun. The changes to the combat mechanic dont bother me at all as it playes similar to how i played the second one.

In this thread, you should be safe. There was a consensus a couple days ago to keep this thread spoiler-free, which is why I've kept my posts about my play experience as free of specific details as possible (using a vague phrase like "an old friend," for example).

If it involves not being able to speak to someone after being told to go to them, save your game, then load that same save. That situation has happened to me, and doing so allowed me to talk to the NPC after loading.
