Re: Mass Effect 3

^Your argument would be valid if Bioware have actually said they only decided to up Cerberus's game *after* they made ME1. They were always going to be players, just not as major as they turned out. I'd provide a link, but I can't be bothered.

Anyway, on to other things. This is something I found interesting. As expected, the latest patch has been datamined and low and behold they've found a list of *sixteen* future MP classes.

Guess which ones really caught people's attention.
Keep in mind of course that Bioware knows full well people data mine these things, so I wouldn't be surprised if they've started planting misinformation just to troll. Either way it's hilarious!

^Yeah, I decided not to go there.

...Bioware on the other hand may really be going *there* after all. Either that or this is a very elaborate piss take. I'm not sure which is funnier.

Doesn't matter. EVERY aspect of the Mass Effect universe was more thoroughly developed in ME2, including Cerberus. There were, in fact, quite a few things that had only niche roles in ME1 that came back in a huge way in the second and third games. Notably, Nassana Dantius, the Terminus Mercs, the entirety of Krogan civilization (such as it is). And going from vague references to "pirates in the terminus systems" to "The Eclipse, the Blood Pack, the Blue Suns... also, don't fuck with Aria" was a much bigger change than finding out where Cerberus kept their more interesting toys.

At some point you have to take into account that Mass Effect 1 really wasn't THAT sophisticated of a game to make a fair comparison to the sequels.

Guess which ones really caught people's attention.
Quarian marksman was mine. I immediately thought "somebody read my mind!" I've been using a quarian character as a dedicated sniper for months; they seem faster, and their camouflage lasts longer, a combination of traits that is IDEAL for a "shoot and scoot" plink-artist like myself.

The former. You can't vault or grab either so you have to be extra careful of your surroundings. I unlocked the Volus engineer right out of the gate and I have to say it's an interesting class to play. Mostly though I found it a little disorienting having the camera so close to the ground.

Re: Mass Effect 3

Could this mean that elcor are just around the corner?!

I think I'll stick with my infiltrators. I like sitting in one area and sniping enemies. Which made that one run through the comm array map on hazard mode a lot more interesting/choatic. Kinda hard to snipe enemies when you can barely see 2 metres in front of your character.

Re: Mass Effect 3

I am really curious how the anime will do. The director also did Lair of General grievious so its good in my book.

Is it going to be sold as a dvd?
Free online?

Netflix?

What are my options.

Re: Mass Effect 3

I like how they've fixed Firebase White& Glacier so they're no longer the credit farms they once were. As a result, gold matches have suddenly become more interesting!

Oh and it appears cobra missiles aren't the all powerful one-shot panic weapons they used to be. At least not against possessed scions. It takes two missiles to down those buggers!

Speaking of scions, does anyone else wonder where they fit into the lore? I mean they look very mech-like, but the only mech we've seen the reapers co-op are geth, so could they be what's left of the AIs the protheans were fighting before the reapers showed up?

^More to the point, it'll feature a female turian! I don't know why I'm looking forward to that, but I just am.

Timed exclusive, according to that article (much like how the Skyrim DLC was). If true, it'll show up on other platforms about a month after the 360 release.
