I never actually played any of the Mass Effects, but this one looks awesome, I might have to keep an eye on news about this game.

Why would you want to play the third game when it's a continuation of the story from previous 2 games? You will miss out on 2/3 of the story.

Garrus without his scars! inlove.gif


I think it's pretty much confirmed that we are going to see turian and krogan women.

From the BioWare Twitter... those are Reapers around the explosion.

This is the ME3 logo concept for the E3 reveal on Monday.

I'll repost this again since it seems the mods have been doing a bit of tidying up in here and deleted it by mistake wink.gif :-

Game Trailers are streaming most of the other Spike E3 stuff, so hopefully they'll be doing the same with this.

OK here are some of the places you can watch the E3 coverage :-

http://live-event.ea.com/e3/press

http://e3.gamespot.c...ess-conference/

http://www.g4tv.com/

http://uk.ign.com/ev...2011/live-video

http://www.gametrailers.com/e3/

http://www.gameinfor...m/p/e3live.aspx

Only 7 hours to go biggrin.gif

Update

Whilst I remember, although we are all waiting for the EA conference it might also be wise to check out the MS conference I hear there is gonna be some ME 3 stuff in that conference too, although it will probably be the Kinect crap stuff.

Here is some news on the Collectors Edition of the game, it seems Amazon.com have just put it up for sale. The Collectors Edition will contain :-
  • The game (well duh)
  • Premium metal case featuring commemorative artwork of Commander Shepard
  • 70-page hardbound art book featuring hundreds of unique and gorgeous illustrations from the BioWare development team plus an exclusive 4x6 lithographic print featuring a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork
  • Limited edition Mass Effect comic by Dark Horse Comics, complete with unique cover artwork
  • Join the ranks of the N7 with the premium fabric N7 patch
  • A full collection of in-game content that can't be found anywhere else!
http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/B0050SY06W

It is retailing for $79.99, personally that Collectors Edition sounds a bit naff to me when you compare it with Duke Nukem Balls of Steel edition. I will wait to see what the UK pricing will be before I hope on board.

Not the most exciting of collectors editions, would have been awesome if they threw in a statue thing similar to what Epic are doing with Gears.

Video of ME 3 gameplay from the Xbox conference :-



The Kinect features include the ability to read out loud the available responses on screen (erm ok). The other Kinect ability means you can issue voice commands, so if you say "Garrus move to cover" Garrus moves to cover. I dunno I will stick with selecting the response with the mouse and using Q and E to tell my team mates where to go.

The E3 trailer is up :-



Remember there will probably be spoilers so stay away if you don't want to know about them.

I've watched the trailer and it looks pretty impressive, the only complaint I have is the f*ck awful music. I don't know what they were thinking having that electronic guitar rock crap blaring away, it really doesn't fit the video.

There is also now an official release date which is the 6th March 2012 so we have a fair few days to wait yet (274 days to be precise).

Well the EA E3 ME 3 (enough acronyms for ya ?) is over and basically "blink and you would've f*cking missed it. They gave ME 3 just 5 mins of coverage but spent nearly 10 minutes showing off the next sh*t need for speed game.

The demo was basically centred around Shepard destroying a Reaper base and then getting chased by Reapers and Cerberus. At the end Legion picks you up in some sorta hover ship and the Reaper chases after you whilst you blast it with a turrent gun. As soon as I find video I will put it up on here.

They also used the opportunity to push EA's new Orign DD platform for the PC. It seems that the Digital Deluxe Edition of ME 3 (PC) will be exclusive to EA's new Origin DD system. The DDE version will include :-
  • N7 arsenal pack – N7 Sniper Rifle, Shotgun, Pistol and SMG
  • Squad-mate alternate appearance pack
  • Normandy mechdog companion
  • Shepard casual appearance– N7 hoodie
  • Exclusive extended soundtrack
  • Exclusive 4x6 lithograph
  • Day 1 DLC – the Prothean (Adventure/Character) - huge spoiler believe me.
  • XBL Normandy Avatar
  • Exclusive forum, social avatars, badges and perks
Oh and it is a mere snip at £54 f*cking quid. They have put up an "exclusive" CGI trailer of ME 3 on the Origin site you can find it here :-

http://www.origin.com/

Just click on the Mass Effect 3 Video icon, no huge spoilers it just shows Earth under attack. There is still 2 more demos to come apparently in about 20 mins.

At least there was smth new in NFS video. In Mass Effect it's the same shooting every time.

NFS it's a whole different game and experience every new game.
Mass Effect 2 looks like an add-on to ME1. And now ME3 - as a second addon to ME1.

Wrong thread then, go make your points in the NFS thread then. Completely out of place.

Not that it isn't obvious, trolling at it's worst form, I mean the least successful...


Anywho, story-wise this got me pretty excited. I am now baffled whether I should pre-order that for the prothean DLC. I wonder what that is all about. I'm pretty sure I can take a rough guess and not miss by far though.

Yeah I wasn't disappointed with what I saw, I just found it a bit odd that they dedicated such a small amount of time to Mass Effect 3.

As for the DLC it is just being given away free if you order the Collectors Edition or the DDE version. You will still get an opportunity to purchase that DLC after the game comes out (this is EA after all).
