Yay for xbox! Multiplayer on the demo is online and fun. Everyone I play with is fucking horrible though. Maybe I need to turn the mic on...

Been playing alone on the White Firebase and just racking it up with my little engineer. Never knew the combat drone was so useful since I've always played as a sentinel (tech shield ftw).

Wow...I...generally didn't care very much about the combat in Mass Effect 2. It wasn't bad or anything, but I felt like it was just a hurdle I had to overcome to get to the next part of the story.

Been playing the shit out of multiplayer now and, despite a few flaws (reviving a squad member usually puts you in the cover position), it is really fun. I might not make my teammates do all the work in the next game.

From Penny-Arcade's Tycho:
Quote:
Anyway, we were talking about Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer, and why it does not suck, and why it feels like an actual game and not like the multiplayer cyst which sometimes grows on long-running franchises. I wanted to know how it all feeds back into the single player, and I could have used Google, but I prefer to learn things from people when I can. I thought you might be curious about these connections as well, so asked him if I could post his response.
His response follows.
“As you know, Mass Effect 3 is all about the galactic war with the Reapers. We have designed a system to give players a status update on the state of their personal war as they progress through the game and accumulate war assets so they can take the fight back to the Reapers. The more you succeed in the game, the more war assets you earn and the more prepared you are to enter the final stages of the game.
An addition to this system is the Galaxy at War, which shows the player who controls which territories on the Galaxy Map and gives players an opportunity to enhance the total military strength of the galaxy by participating in optional things like Multiplayer, the iPhone app and the iPad game. You can get best possible outcome in the game by just playing single player if you want, as long as you are willing to do a lot of the side missions and content. However, maybe you only want to do a critical path run of the single player. Well, by playing multiplayer you also increase your galactic readiness rating can affect the final outcome. Using the iPhone Datapad app and the iPad Infiltrator game will also tie into Galaxy at War and update this final rating.
As a result, you can play the game how you want and not be negatively punished if you don’t want to play multiplayer or don’t own any iOS devices. You can do a little bit of all the four pieces and be able to get the best possible outcome. Or you can play a ton of multiplayer and just the critical single player stuff. Or just single player and all the side missions. We designed the system to give players choices, but also tie all the products together in a meaningful way beyond ‘unlock a new gun in single player.’ Galaxy at War is a really fun, interesting meta-game that is part of Mass Effect 3 and we think players will love it when they get the final game.”
He also told me that I should link his twitter feed @manveerheir if you had any questions not covered by the above, which I thought was very nice of him.
(CW)TB out.

You won't be able to play the full multiplayer without it.

That's kind of what I mean, I always do the side-quests, so I don't need to bother with the multiplayer to get the best ending.

I know how to invite people, yet I am pretty confused about how to join games. Been playing with a Brit and an American pretty frequently. Can't find anyone good enough to finish a Silver game so far.

More often than not I join a silver room only to find that everyone is level 1. A good portion of the times it's half and half...with me and one other dude being level 18+ or something and then two people who have never played before.

If I'm the leader I change it to bronze and just play it.

I'm just glad they didn't make it so that some of these other portions of the game had to be played in order to get 'X' result in single player.

The first DLC packs for the game was accidentally leaked by the Xbox Marketplace and will be called "From Ashes".

The DLC pack also confirms earlier rumors about the Mass Effect 3 story changing part of what was previously known in the other 2 games.

SPOILER: show
Quote:
Mass Effect 3: From Ashes, released February 20 presumably by accident, will apparently allow players to "unearth lost secrets from the past" and enlist a member of the game's Prothean race (confirming previous rumors).

The digital version on PSN will be having an exclusive pre-order not available for the PS3 version.

Quote:
Sony and Electronic Arts are taking a step forward with Mass Effect 3, as the PlayStation Blog notes the game will be available day and date on PSN alongside the retail version on March 6, and you can digitally pre-order on PSN now.

Anyone who pre-orders through PSN will gain access to the M55 Argus rifle. What’s that?

“The Argus is a high-powered rifle and an excellent close-range weapon. Its bursts of fire ensure ammunition conservation during lengthy conflicts. Law-enforcement agencies across the Mass Effect galaxy are adopting the Argus as their standard rifle, as much for its intimidation factor as its suppression power.”

PSN consumers also gain access to a system theme that won’t be available anywhere else.

Bioware also confirms the first DLC pack called "From Ashes" will be free to anyone who ordered the N7 Collector's Edition of the game while everyone else has to pay regardless if the game was bought used or new. The DLC was never originally intended to be part of the collector's edition until very recently which is why its only a download code and not on the disc itself.

Is it really a spoiler? I mean, people already know about available characters and whatnot, and considering all the news on this ya know?

Anyways, glad you're kidding.

How does talking about a DLC character, that would've been announced when the dlc was announced, spoil anything anyway?

The biggest issue was either Bioware, EA, or Microsoft themselves ended up accidentally spoiling a piece of Mass Effect 3 when it went up too early on the Xbox Marketplace. It wouldn't be that big of an issue if it wasn't for the fact of it changing what was known about the story in the previous 2 games.

I know on Kotaku, people were screaming for the heads of the editor in charge of the report just because the DLC picture he uploaded for the article ended up having the tag line that was in the DLC pack on the marketplace.

Well my opinion on is that it shouldn't be dlc...and if it is, it should be free to all via a cerberus network type thing. It's simply too big of a wave in the ME lore to make it simply something that is "premium"

I feel I am obliged to use the last game's mook race since they took out Legion, the first game's mook race.

And since I didn't get to use Legion until late in the game, I don't want the same event to happen.

Im gonna snatch up all my team members right away. I felt the same way as Fryza with Legion...you get him so late in the game, and he's so damn cool, gut you dont get to use him too much.

Im currently powering through another play of ME2, and snatched him up asap, which had been entertaining, especially when taking him on missions like Tali's loyalty one and citadel ones.

In case anyone doesn't care about being spoiled and wants to know how the ending and parts of the game actually play out.

http://www.giantbomb.com/mass-effect...t-3/35-537798/

SPOILER: show
The ending is done Deus Ex Human Revolution style with a series of choices available but not everything will be available since its based on space points earned and decisions done in the game.

Also ends up setting the stage for Mass Effect 4 but not in a Halo 2 way.


Didn't actually spoil the ending with the tags but gives an idea of how it occurs if you've played a certain other game.
