    Just bought the digital download of mass effect 3 today and I have to say that the cinematography, the story, and voice acting so far are just amazing.

    I did play Mass Effect 2 as well but never finished. I hope that I'll finish Mass Effect 3. I'm currently playing it on 1080p and I am just amazed at the quality of this game.

    What are your thoughts on ME3? Have you bought it? Plan on playing it? What kind of romance are you looking to see? That character Kaiden is sure flirtatious with my main character...

    Making another run through ME1 and ME2 keeping Kaiden alive and no romance at all so that Shepherd can finally claim Alenko for himself.

    Haha I see... But in ME3, you have an option of keeping Kaiden alive when you don't want to load a saved game from ME2.

    Im guessing your playing on PC perhaps?

    I have both ME1&2 but only barely played the first one. lol
    I bought it through a sale on Steam. Thinking of getting the third installment down the line but am thinking if I should finish the first two to get where the story is going.

    Yeah, you could do the same in ME2 if you didn't want to load a save. But I am really interested to see what effects many other choices will have--saving the Rachni Queen, keeping Wrex as part of the team--so I want to play my Shepherd through.

    I do play on the PC. ME1 and ME2 via Steam. I have the EA Origen software installed to run the demo and I think it's another piece of bloatware. But it looks unavoidable.

    Yes I play on my desktop PC. She's loaded with a GTX 560 card, and i7 core and 16 GB of RAM, so I'm just blasting away on full graphics with no lag. It is just amazing!

    I have ME2 as well but didn't finish. Bah I figured I'll just go along in ME3. So far they don't make it too confusing if you didn't play the first 2 games.

    That's true. I think if you play through ME1 and ME2, you may get more attachment to the characters over time.

    I have EA Origin and so far it doesn't seem like bloatware. It's just another program like Steam. The only thing is now I don't have all my games in one place. I have to install both Origin and Steam. Oh well, life's not perfect sometimes hehe.

    For the first couple of weeks I had Origin, it showed up on my taskbar as running as soon as I started up, and every time I shut down I got a message from Windows saying that it was having problems closing Origin. Now that's not happening. Don't know why, but it's better.

    Pfft, Kaiden...don't you know about Garraus and his calibrations and he's got the reach if you've got the flexibility.


    Also Jacob.

    Garrus? Eeek! Vaguely insectoid mandibles just do not get my engine running.

    Jacob, absolutely in a heartbeat. Great voice, too.

    I meant if he WAS human, his character growth from 1 to 2 is incredible, he goes from a sort of green cop with a super strong sense of justice and fed up with the politics and red tape that comes with his job, and in 2 hee has kind of grown to this wounded "can I even really make a difference" type.

    The same goes for Tali, she started the first game as a sort of uncertain yet eager to prove herself young woman and when you meet up with her again in 2 she is a BAMF

    Garrus was very thin characterize in ME1 and he is much better realized in ME2. But still not my cup of whatever.

    I hardly used Tali in ME1 because I played through as an engineer, which made her superfluous. But yeah, when she first appears in ME2, she's strong and effective and you think, "She'd be a real asset!"

    Jacob has his head screwed on right and doesn't agonize about too much. A moral guy but he wants to get the job done, too. And just about the best ass in video gaming.
