    Saren killing himself was such a great moment. Right after he did it, I thought "Noo.... YOU JUST STARTED TO SEEM DECENT."
    I was like "Aw fuck yeah. I knew you weren't a bad guy."

    and then I was sad.

    I wish I lived in a time like this.. though war wouldn't be glorious and there wouldn't be any redos.. man.

    I hate people who like war.

    Edited:

    Comic shoulda been like .. 'I should have saved Ash..' or something.

    Also, how is it that all the humans in the game aren't funny at all.. seriously. In the future do we evolve to lose our sense of humor?

    Edited:

    Something tells me that kid doesn't exist, and was just a figment of Shepherd's imagination.
    Mass Effect isn't like that.

    It's not very figurative.

    You can analyze it like literature with literary devices.

    But that kid was real.

    See we can say kid's death is a symbol of the innocence of humans in this alien society dying or something. But I'm sure the kid's there.

    News on Mordin, hope it's true. If someone knows otherwise correct me.

       Depending on what happened in the loyalty mission, he can either survive or die during the krogan princess mission. Now I just need to figure out what option would keep him alive. I'm guessing keeping the cure data would aid in his survival but I'm not sure.

    Presumably so, otherwise he's working on data from scratch. The additional research would prove useful I'd imagine.

    speaking of mordin i was watching this video ( contains some spoilers) and at 2:00 mordin's voice sounded a lot more like Michael beattie than mark meer's impression

    After opening up the audio files from the demo, I'm all but convinced it's Beattie.

    Either they did a hell of an amazing job turning Meer into Mordin with voice editing or Beattie was
    A. Contacted late to record dialogue
    B. Fucking with us



    Also, the fact that Mordin is    commenting on the Prothean must mean he's around later in the game.. unless that dialogue was lifted from the krogan princess mission. I am remaining hopeful.

    Mass Effect 2 had a special cutscene activate if you took Legion on your mission to recruit Tali, which was simply impossible for several different reasons, so you may not want to bank too hard on things like that.

    That's nice. Completely incorrect, but nice. Writing and gameplay elements are completely separate from each other. One of them is awesome, one of them is not. Speaking of opinions, maybe you should do some research before opening your mouth; cause the cool thing about opinions is if you back them up with data and evidence, they're much easier to defend or push forward, as you say.

    I've noticed that Bioware has gone down a dark road. First they kill a little boy in the Demo (whether or not he's real, the imagery is still there), and then they killed (or implied the murder of) a little girl in new trailer. I mean what are they trying to prove here? Personally I don't care, I'm all for being able to kill children in Skyrim. Is this their way of telling people "if it's okay to watch it happen, then why isn't it okay to be the one doing it"? Either that or they really want this final game to be dramatic to the core.

    That's in AUD, which equates to about $106 USD.
    If I brought it in NZ (where I live) it would cost $150 NZD/$116 AUD/$124 USD.

    Yeah, fuck our prices.

    I don't get it, why do you guys get screwed so hard for the price difference? There is no reason it should be more expensive for you than anyone else. Honestly, I'm surprised no one has done anything about it yet.

    Some say it's shipping the games that ranks it up, others say it's the retailers setting the prices and maybe because we have a higher minimum wage than other countries.

    I rarely buy physical copies of games because of this since I can buy cheap CD-Keys for my average gamer PC, but for some things I love having a collectors edition of stuff.

    They're pretty blatantly hitting the "no one shall be spared" angle. They said before anything was even released that this iteration would be the darkest and the funniest.

    Good fucking luck backing up your opinion about writing quality, all the truly matters is whether people are convinced and interested, and you are likely not because you are full of hatred for some reason

    That's slightly easier to explain; after Mordin, all squadmates could be recruited in any order. It wasn't until pretty late in the game that the game was given some more structure with the core missions.


    EDIT: Nvm.

    backing up your opinion
    There's plenty already to back up what I've said, and all of it is publicly available, else I wouldn't have bothered to come to the conclusion in the first place.

    Being blunt != hatred.

    I can waste four paragraphs spitting out flowery shit-diction about the "issues in describing an dynamic narrative in our era of commoditized gaming" and the "foibles of producing a consistently entertaining yarn in heavily populated genre based on past examples, which certainly needs to make or exceed customer expectations in order to bring a thrilling conclusion to the trilogy, a proper send off for fans and developers alike".

    or...

    I can just say

    aside from the interpersonal dialog, the writing and plot devices in Mass Effect 3 are hee haw fucking awful, luckily the game play is spot on except for the one button does everything crap they refused to abandon.
    One of those gets the point directly across, doesn't it. I'll leave you to figure out which one.

    the more i think about it, the more likely it is that the child was a figment of Shepard's imagination, the reapers could possibly be attempting manipulating people's minds so that they become too broken to fight back or something

    I wonder if you get screwed over by the exchange rates that EA like to use.

    On origin. ME3 normal is $60 while the N7 edition is $80. A difference of $20.


    In the UK normal ME3 is 35 (reasonable exchange rate there.) but the N7 edition is 55 which is a difference of 20.


    .... good job EA, I'll be happy to teach you maths if you're still having problems.

    Origin, at least for me, is saying the N7 edition is $109.99. I have no clue if this is in USD or not but it wouldn't surprise me if it is.

    I believe you can copy the save from your HDD to a USB drive then use the modified unofficial save editor to re-save it in PC format, I know someone posted how to do this in the reverse.
