    So I was making some scrambled eggs for my kid earlier this morning and started thinking about this game.

    I came to the conclusion that I want Sheperd, Garrus, and Wrex to all not survive. I want all three of them to sacrifice their lives together since I'm pretty sure Sheperd will be offing himself in some heroic way, these two should be obligated to come along for that ride.

    Anyway, I need a break from MW3 and this can't launch soon enough for me.

    I've always tried as hard as I could to have all of my characters survive but I have a feeling Sheperd is going to go down in a blaze of glory at the end of this game no matter what :(.

    I just want a Quarian to be unmasked. Doesn't even have to be Tali.

    The face of my Shepard isn't being accepted by this game. What a bummer.

    This is one series that I wish I actually had enough time to play back in the day. I was too busy to play when the first title came out (too poor as well I think) and didn't invest enough time into it. Eventually I will invest more time in the series!

    I'm bummed because I've lost my ME1 and 2 saves somewhere down the line. Currently running getdataback on all my HDDs to see if I can find them somewhere so I don't have to go back through both before 3 :(.

    Bioware promises High resolution textures on PC on release for Mass Effect 3. They lied.
    But I guess that happens when companies only care about the baseline to port a console game to the PC with little or no care to take advantage of the hardware since profit=Consoles. And they care more about day 1 DLC.

    I guess if you are playing from 10 feet away on a big TV. It won't matter.

    I just don't understand, when logically all assets are made in high resolution and then downscaled/compressed for consoles. Same thing with Models.Last time I checked, 3D modelers make High polygon versions and then reduce polygons and use normal mapping to retain detail when they get inserted into the game.

    So WHY is it so hard for them to simply use the Original uncompressed assets and insert them in place of the compressed ones on PC?

    And I don't understand how it could be so difficult for them to insert 360 controller support either.
    Insult to injury, ME1 on PC has more graphical options than ME3.
    I don't understand how they expect this to be acceptable in 2012. Or how they expect people to sit 2 feet from a monitor with such low res textures where the difference will be much more apparent.

    Has there been any indication as to when a patch will be pushed to fix the face import glitch?

    wow, so i just beat the game, and i loved it upto the ending. i'm still not sure what i expected, but i was hoping for another option.

    I chose sacrificing myself to basically create the next generation of dna(or whatever the citadel was talking about), i thought it'd keep the relays around, wouldn't kill the geth, and the reapers would stop slaughtering, but i guess it pretty much fucks the galaxy in the short game. i guess i was hoping they'd explain more about what i had achieved by jumping into the stream, but i guess everyone's going to have their own opinion on how it should have ended.

    edit: http://gamepolitics.com/2012/03/06/mass-effect-3039s-ending-tied-forced-multiplayer-participation

    i guess since i played the single player straight instead of doing the multiplayer first, i'm forced to a shitter ending.

    that's good to know i guess that the ending i received wasn't the "prefect" ending, but also makes me a bit angry that i am forced to play multiplayer to get that ending.

    actually from what i've been reading, my initial assumptions about the ending's are horribly wrong. Im pretty disappointed in bioware now after what i've been reading.

    essentially all 3 options can't be changed no matter what, and the readiness number only changes very minor differences in the ending, no decision's from your game's seem to really carry a substantial impact, no matter what the relay's are destroyed, tons of new questions are left completely unanswered(like what the hell was Normandy doing at the end?), and basically the entire idea of your actions being important are tossed right out the window.

    knowing that i can't really change the end-game at all kindof makes me not want to play this game again.

    The only thing i can say, is it feels like the ending was rushed, and personally, i felt it was badly executed.

    I must say it sounds pretty disappointing. ME1 was a game where your decisions effected the end of the game and whether major characters died or lived, or if you blew up the space station or whatever. ME2 was the same thing, where your decisions from the first carried over and affected your whole game again and whether or not people died etc. That was always why I loved ME2, the actual continuation of story from game to game and ability to change the outcome. It's very disappointing to hear how none of that seems to really matter now.

    Plus people are beating the game this fast? = \

    that's what i enjoyed about ME2, the choices, the loyalty's, the upgrades, it MATTERED. but now, it's just...meh

    it took me ~30 hours(normal difficulty, listened to all convo's, and did 99% of all sidequests. the 1 i didn't do was because i forgot to turn it in before i started the end mission.)

    People are playing it nonstop thats why. My friend got it on release date and I'm not sure if he sleeps but I go to work and hes playing, I come home and hes still playing.

    He beat the story twice now with different characters. I keep hearing bad things about this game compared to previous ME games though.

    If anyone is anal like me and wanted to get their Shepard back. I followed this post on the Bioware forums to get my guy like 95% back.

    The items that I had to tweak because the below method didn't work were: Complexion, Iris Color, Nose Shape, Hair, Beard, and Facial Hair Color.

    http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/323/index/9661093/83#9723814


    Now I can finally start this finale.

    Edit: Here is my Shepard code if anyone wants to use my badass.
    Code:
    562.WWL.ECQ.D3L.DQM.FBR.T1R.1QB.AR1.6H4.E76.7

    I ordered ME 3 from newegg and they messed up my order and sent me Madden 12 instead so I didn't get the game till yesterday. I didn't play the arrival DLC for ME 2 so I was kinda loss at the beginning of 3. I've played a few hours so far and am really enjoying it but I find the side missions to be silly. The reapers are destroying the universe and Admiral hackett wants me to go to a Cerberus lab to find some relics? Come on. I hope the side missions get better and have some real impact on the story. Oh and Bioware did a real poor job with splitting up the content on the two discs. I had to switch disc four times already and I've only completed like 3 main missions.

    I still play a lot of MP. I think my N7 rank is over 200 now. Hit me up with a message of you want to party up.

    I also thought ALL of the endings sucked arse.
