I just finished that mission a few minutes ago. Use your map to help you find the locations of the terminals.

Re: Mass Effect 3

I was able to play for 44 minutes last night using an imported save on the PC to mirror my 360 play through of ME1 and 2. I am not too far, but the scope seems to be suitably epic. My major complaint so far is that the textures seems to be lower res then ME2. Other than that, I am enjoying the fact that load times are much less then when I played ME2.

I found the PC textures to be really nice although when your in the same locations sometimes its hard to retcon the look and feel of the place.

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.
Nah, mine involves
I know where the terminals are, I just cant click them

They seemed a little low-res, though mostly during conversations when you are up close to the characters. Not a bad looking game, just a bit distracting.

I'm about nine hours into the single player, but I'm going to take a break now and try out the multiplayer, see how that effects the War Assets.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Goddammit.. Amazon has apparently fucked it up. It's 8.09pm and i've only just received an email that the package has been shipped.. on the 7th.

I doubt it will get here tomorrow on time at release day.. and if things really go bad i'd not be able to play it until Monday morning (get notification in mail box but won't be able to pick up on the same day, am away all Friday until late at night and have class Saturday until 1pm at which time the post office has already closed).

I'm thinking of getting home tomorrow, checking the mail box or if there was a package left with a neigbor and if not hopping to the nearest store and buy the damned thing and do a first ever.. return an Amazon shipment for a refund.

And the worst thing is.. my colleague got his PS3 version today in the morning

*stumbles in wearing a spoiler proof blindfold*

Just a little something for my fellow PC gamers; Alienware are giving away promo codes for a DLC sniper rifle. You have to sign up for a free account with them (which is of course the whole point) but what's one more piece of occasional spam? Besides, free stuff!

I ordered mine from Amazon. But ON release day, here they are at the Camp Casey Powerzone in Korea, including a copy of the Collector's edition they said was no longer available.

Ok, I had to laugh out loud on the Citadel when:


Little stuff like that just makes this series magic.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Is the Citadel actually a fully-explorable area like in ME1 this time? I felt totally cheated by what they did in Mass Effect 2.

Re: Mass Effect 3

It is indeed, though it's a fully non-combat area. Though in ME1, you had to take elevators everywhere. You just get loading screens instead of the elevators in this. Really, it wasn't all that different in ME2.
