    With the release of ME3 getting so close, I'm wondering if anyone else plans on playing the multi-player content and would like to add each other on xbox live to team up. I get this particular glee from the idea of a team of gay special forces commandos kicking Cerberus fascist ass across the galaxy icon_smile.gif I'm imperator prime on live.

    there's a thread here :

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/2183384

    i've done Multiplayer Demo in most classes and will certainly play it along the singleplayer .. but i'm on PC : and the game doesn't allow mixed platforms. icon_sad.gif
    it's sad, i got friends on Xbox and we can't play ,ever.

    you got a very modest title..lol

    I'm aware of that thread, but as of the 6th when people start playing the full release of the game, speaking for myself, a thread called "ME3 Demo" isn't going to get my attention anymore, because I'm not going to be playing the demo anymore. I started this thread to try and get ahead of the inevitable obsolescence of the other one.

    For comparison, regardless of the popularity of a thread about- say- "Avengers movie trailers," once the movie is actually in the theater most people are going to look for a discussion about the movie, not the trailers.

    So far I've mostly played the demo as a human soldier and engineer, but when it occurred to me that those characters will probably become irrelevant once I get my copy of the game and it creates new data files, I became a fair bit less invested in leveling those up. Until I'm playing the real deal, I see the demo multiplayer as just practice.

    i see.

    i find the Demo gives you the flavor of each class, so leveling them up is useful , also with more and more Veteran packs you unlock the more interesting weapons and get to try them out.


    As of March 2nd the Demo will go offline and we're all back to square one on March the 6th .

    I'm probably one of the more enthusiastic fans of the series-- I pre-ordered my collector's edition on August 12th, as soon as I was able once they started taking pre-orders. And on the 6th, I'll be getting off a midnight shift at 7:30 so I'll probably go home, have breakfast, then show up at the mall looking like a total geek in my N7 t-shirt, military style shirt and hoodie to pick it up.

    The $64k question is whether I'll sleep at all that day, or show up to my next midnight shift that same night full of Mass Effect and Red Bull icon_neutral.gif

    Taken a look at the class listings for the multiplayer?

    Not happy that they're fixed, was hoping for something more flexible where you can pick and choose power assignments to suit the individual player.

    Oh well, let's take on some fascists!

    i found the unlocking system weird at first , but in the end you get more options than in ME2 where you could only switch one bonus power.

    Mind you, i can turtle in there forever figuring which character i feel like playing .

    I have not had time to try out the multiplayer yet. I also preordered the collector's edition of the game. My xbox live id is An0ma1ous. I look forward to exploring all aspects of the game though.
    Also, I fixed the subject of the other forum thread to keep it from fading into obsolecence icon_smile.gif

    just bumpn =)

    this thread cannot die before March 6th.

    --

    as much as i love the Multiplayer, i'm so looking forward to the Single for the RPG and i'm frankly more than curious to find out how they handled the same sex romancing.

    Btw, what do you think of the endings that have leaked ?

    Control
    Merge
    Destroy

    to me, it makes total sense that it has a dark ending . You can't fight such an enemy and come out unscathed.

    I don't know if it was ever confirmed but there were rumors that there would be a sequel to the franchise but without Shepard.

    Vanguard is ace. So much fun to play if you spec correctly. Definitely OP but soooo much fun.

    You really should play the first two before the third, they're both such amazing games and it would definitely make the third more intimate and epic!

    yes, i maxed Charge and Nova asap .On Bronze you're unstoppable. On Silver also but you have to be a bit more clever with it. I charged a Phantom on the LZ yesterday only to find out they were two.. and no squad mates around... oops. 'I'm bleeding out!" ... I haven't played it on Gold yet.

    Agreed* I'd go ahead and say that for any game that has sequels.

    Ahh I hate those damn Phantoms, that always happens to me. Now I just charge, nova, and give em' a nice shot in the head for good measure. Carry a pistol and nothing else and your recharge is practically nothing. I hope they keep Vanguard the same for the full title, I'm having too much fun.

    I'm thinking we should set up an RJ Team.

    i'm on PC . It would be fun to have a whole list of RJ friends on Origin. icon_biggrin.gif
    nick is xassantex there .

    and it's fun when there's good communication between players. I have sound turned on all the time , but i find it surprising how many players just don't talk at all.. no warnings , never saying what they're going after etc.
    --
    got a friend who soloed on Silver a few times and there's a video of a guy ho soloed on Gold and made it.


    /edit

    oh and i REALLY hope EA fix their server issues. Setting up a team with NA and Europe players ends in major lag and everyone dying .

    That's actually the first spoiler I've seen about the ending, but I won't hold it against you-- I'm really ambivalent about spoilers for ME3. One day my anticipation will be so intense that I just want any info I can get about it, including the whole storyline from start to finish, and the next day I'll really want to hold off and be surprised. I don't think I'll enjoy it any less if I know what's planned to happen, but I'm not sure, some of it might be way more impactful if it's out of the blue.

    But from what you've already said, I gather that those options refer to the Reapers and the discovery of a way to either destroy 'em, join 'em, or "assume direct control" over 'em (which right from the start was something I speculated about; I figured Cerberus or the Alliance or both might be working on some secret technology-- maybe powered by the same dark matter that was collapsing Haestom's sun, which might have been Keiji's dangerous secret-- to reverse-engineer the Reapers' ability to control implanted beings like Collectors or Saren's corpse and turn it against them). In which case, I can already start to envision which option might appeal most to each of my different Shepards.

    i won't elaborate on those options as i don't really know more ... and also wouldn't want to spoil your feeling of anticipation. ( i feel a bit cheap for having already done so , meh )
    Something i read though is the devs have made some changes due to the various leaks that occurred in the past year. Of course that is only a rumour.. so.. *shrugs*

    Your theory makes sense , i honestly don't know how it will end, but whichever are the choices , i will certainly try them all . I'll be playing this game for the 2 years to come for sure .

    i thought the Demo was going offline on March 2nd, but here we are.. i just played 2 rounds on Silver ( Krogan soldier , who's just adorable , and Vanguard with a Scimitar -- slower cooldown but it's fun to pow pow targets ) .

    If you're on PC talk to me. (Assuming I've sufficiently shrugged of my recent bout of game addiction enough that I can safely play.)
