    Anyone else download the Mass Effect 3 demo yesterday? I think I'm gonna have to get a kinect just for this game. So far, I really like it.

    I was holding out for the full Mass Effect 3 to come out in March.

    But your post makes me want to check out the demo now. icon_biggrin.gif

    So I just got a Kinect today and tried it out with the ME3 demo. So freaking cool. Voice commands are awesome. Like "Shepard, Machine gun" and he switches. I can't wait for the real game to come out.

    sorry i missed your thread yesterday :

    i've played as adept , started a soldier and was interrupted, then started a sentinel and had to stop !! >:-(
    keeping vanguard for last icon_smile.gif)

    i was going to wait till March 6th ( already preordered the downloadable ), but i got sucked into the Demo from watching vids and talking to BSN friends. lol
    I still have to finish a Shotgun Engineer and a Claymore Soldier in ME2 !icon_eek.gif

    dunno if i'm ready to invest in Kinect yet, but it looks like fun. I know there are very diverging opinions regarding it so it's cool to have some "real" feedback.
    Tell us more about it ?

    i'm just going to wear my N7 T shirt..haha.

    Done multiplayer ?

    Anyone playing on the PC (despite the Origin debacles :/).

    Put together a multiplayer group? I mostly play vanguard, looking for a good group to play Gold on (though I'll settle for Silver).

    Just pre-ordered the Collector's Edition. Can't wait.

    Played the demo and loved it. Should try the multiplayer now. Anyone playing on PS3?

    The demo was badly put together. There's no argument. Honestly, Bioware really isn't that good at telling story, it is pretty decent at creating characters and atmosphere. They tried to be legit story tellers at the start of the story. You just have to let that go. Gameplay's a lot of fun.


    ...I wonder if there's anyway I could sex Mordin up...?

    The game looks amazing... I'm just disappointed I can't start from the beginning icon_sad.gif (I have no idea what's going on)

    Had a run through with an engineer and infiltrator so far (not happy about the lack of sniper rifle, I miss my baby), gonna go sentinel and adept at some point this week. Will use the kinect then.

    I'd say start from the second game, they have streamlined the system since the first, it's good to get into. Then play the first one as the complexity picks up then.

    The second game will also have enough exposition for you to dive straight in.

    I am pretty sure that will happen to me. icon_smile.gif

    I am looking forward to having a same-sex romance with Kaiden in ME3. icon_lol.gif

    i'm just a rank 12 Adept right now , but unlocked a rank 4 Engineer which could be fun. ( i love Incinerate ) .
    Had a bug earlier on, none of the Singularity and Warp worked ( probably lag ) .. so i was down to using my guns only.. an embarrassing Adept moment..hahaha.

    i read the MP in official release will also affect your SP , so watch out .. ;p

    i'm still playing Bronze but will jump up when i reach a higher level.

    I heard there were big spoilers in the demo, and I've worked really hard to avoid anything regarding this game, so as much as I want to play it, I'm holding out. Won't be that much longer anyhow...

    I also tried to get the collectors edition, but I was told they stopped taking pre orders for it. I am sad.

    Fighting the urge to play the demo, i want no spoilers of any kind.

    Currently re-playing through Mass Effect 1 and 2 in preparation for 3.

    That was a very... cinematic demo lol. The art was amazing, gameplay a little odd.Took a bit of getting used to with the controls and what not. At any rate, I guess I'll pick up 2 and 3 and expand my game collection beyond the Resistance trilogy that I love so dearly.

    P.S. Is it wrong that I find Shepard (male) hot? icon_eek.gif

    did you use the "Save" that unlocks all the gay dialogues between Shep and Kaidan?

    Got the chance to play it a couple of days ago. I gotta say everything about it is amazing! The only thing they're missing is team death match in addition to the multiplayer challenges. Graphics is a little dark... but its expected with Bioware games.

    It was originally in, supposedly higher ups pulled it, you can still unlock some of male Shepard's gay romance dialogue [thoug only Kaiden's hetero dialogue is persesrved, so there's a 'glitch' at the very end unfortunately :]:

    (Jump to 0:40 for delightfully corny come ons.)

    But the option for male-male romance (and then I assume non-graphic sex as is typical for the series) is confirmed for Mass Effect 3 http://www.joystiq.com/2011/05/16/mass-effect-3-will-have-gay-romance-option-for-male-shepard/
