Was anybody watching the Gamespot live stream when that guy asked Casey Hudson about Elcor husks?

I haven't seen the Gamespot stream other than the little bit about skill, but I remember that from the IGN stream yesterday. That would've been funnier had the guy not been such a huge dweeb. I kept thinking that I was watching a live-action Artie from the older episodes of The Simpsons... Does the Gamespot stream bring anything new to the table? Seems like they're rehashing the same two maps over and over. And will the interview with Hudson later tonight be fresh material?

By the way, is it just me or does the skill tree advancement screen look awfully 90s? I wonder how much it's going to change until the end.

Genuine enthusiasm: I was. Luckily Casey was joking about the possibility of adding them to the game. I'd hate to have to kill elcor.

I like everything I've seen so far. And I have a feeling the opening mission will be a blast. Just the fact that Anderson will accompany you really give you that feeling like this is really the beginning of the end [of Mass Effect trilogy], a full circle. Maybe it's just me but that's what I felt.

This is probably the game I want most from E3.

I will not be talking to a mic except in combat though...

It WOULD be nice if when you spoke, you didn't have to hear shepard do the same exact thing as if you just pushed the button - THEN it would be immersive... But saying takes longer than a button, for the same outcome, that's just corny.

Still gonna be awesome.

Oh yeah, my mistake, must have been IGN. Couldn't remember which. I've watched so much.

The demo on that link I posted didn't show any new footage. But they did answer a few questions. One of them was PC specs. They're aiming at similar if not the same specs of Mass Effect 2. Not really surprising. You can't make a game look much better with UT3 engine than it did in ME2.

Thanks CC for posting the pics. Looks like we're going to back to the ol' ME1 level up system but stick with the ME2 skill points system?

I have never played DA2, but I wouldnt mind karma points for my squadmates. If it means different dialouge if they are Paragon or Renegade then f*ck yeah!

Actually the leveling up system is quite different from both ME1 and ME2. You have 6 skill levels and when you gain a level you can of course chose which skill to upgrade. But it goes beyond that because you can chose how you want to upgrade it. For example if you want to upgrade one of your biotic powers you can chose if you want to upgrade it's duration, damage, radius etc. You couldn't chose to do that in previous ME games. You could only chose which skill to upgrade, not how to upgrade it. So it's a deeper system.

Oh yeah I just look at those pics again and it is certainly deeper.

Just read Gamespot preview and I'm loving this piece of info.

Shepard's omni-tool has also changed so that it's not just for hacking robots or stealing credits. Depending on which class you play, the device will have a new ability for you to use. As a soldier, our omni-tool came equipped with a short blade designed to relieve an enemy's guts from his body.


Good riddance Omni-Blade for me then tounge.gif

Exactly, I just hope I don't bang Garrus in his manhole by accident...

LOL I don't think Bioware is stupid enough to bring DA2 into this. Imagine the sh*tstorm if people start thinking DA2 was better YIKES!
Their still getting hate for it.

BTW I LOVE the Omni Blade... The possibilities in melee is saweet... I am so going stealthy my first play.

The Milky Way? We'll be able to visit other galaxies? I thought we were done with that after Omega-4 or whatever the last mission in ME2 was called. That's pretty cool.

Don't get your hopes up about visiting different Galaxies, there is every chance that Milky Way text is just place holder text I am afraid. It would be nice idea mind you but don't expect it.

Anyway who is up for new footage ? Yeahhhhhhhhhh :-



It starts off with old footage then about 20 secs in you get to see combat in some different areas. There are no real spoilers but once again you watch it at your own risk.

You'd imagine they'd have the name of the planetary systems down by now. You're probably right, but a man can dream.

Loved Shep beating the living hell out of a guy with his weapon, heh. Not much ambient sound going at this point in the development. Sounds a bit empty, doesn't it? It really makes you appreciate the sound work that goes in to games. TV too, for that matter. If anyone has seen the shooting of a TV show the first thing you'll notice is the sound. Good stuff.

Everyone gets the omni-blade, just different versions of it

you can be a mech wow.gif a heavy mech wow.gif

http://masseffect.co...game/biowaretv/

the paragorn and renegade bars are just a bug apperently, it just doesn't go away even when you enter "liara" or whoever.

(according to the interview they are doing right now)

so you wont need to worry about bumming garrus.


Just ordered the deluxe edition. =)

Charles, video doesn't work. Or is it just me?

Ugh I'm having the worst ME1 playthrough of my life. I currently have only Kaidan, Liara and Tali in my squad. I did not recruit Garrus and Ashley anf Wrex died in Virmire.

And I'm a Vanguard so there's no one who can use Assault Rifles in my squad now!


Hey you guys think that the ME2 anomaly missions will have any impact in ME3? Because I'm too lazy ass to go through all that.

Did you check these four videos :-

- The Kinect Demo
- The Reaper Chase Scene
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BhvQS98stY - Combat Demo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqrniKpEYic - Emotional Earth Level

That is essentially all the ingame footage they showed this year at E3. I have just checked and all 4 videos are still up on Youtube so they should work.

Meanwhile Christina Norman did an interesting tweet last night. She suggested that squad mates may not work exactly the same way as they did in ME 1 and ME 2. Not quite sure what that is supposed to mean but can't wait to find out.

Hmm, actually, I might try that sometimes, and see how me2 works out when you see him.

Yeah, don't do what I did. Just met Garrus in ME2, there's only a slight change of the dialouge. Bullsh*t, did not recruit Garrus in ME1 just for that encounter.

Seen it, done all.

Can't honestly figure out what's she trying to say about the squadmates. Maybe they are changing the way you give orders to them?


That's it, this will be my new sig soon.

I am eternally grateful. *Bows*

About different galaxies, yeah odds are that's a place holder, even though it'd be awesome to go to a different galaxy and see what's out there.

Oh also someone (foregot the name sorry) said that the Omega 4 relay took you out side the milky way, I only though it took you to the center of the galaxy. (You know the chewy Nugget center full of black holes)

Anyhow thanks to Charlie and everyone who’s posting news and footage, makes me more exited every time I wonder in here.

Nope but they are going to shove that bullsh*t in there whether we want it or not. The fact that we can't get Bioware to use the two letters "N" and "O" in any sentence regarding multiplayer pretty much says to me they are tacking on an MP mode.

I hope they don't. It will seriously f*ck up the game. People that play Mass Effect are RPG fans and they play it for the SP story. Not many people will buy ME3 if they didn't play the previous 2 games. And if they do, they won't buy it for the multiplayer. And people who did play ME1 and ME2 will buy ME3 anyway, so they don't need MP as a selling point AT ALL. If anything, MP will make some people believe that Bioware didn't invest their full capacity in SP mode which can result in cancellation on pre-orders until they're sure the game doesn't suck. Or maybe that's just me.

They should just stick with the single player and if they really want to cash-in on ME later, they can always make more games based on ME universe. Just let us have our trilogy unspoiled.

I 100% agree with GTAvanja, multiplayer is totally unnecessary for the game, and like he said, might lead people to think they didn't invest all they could into single player.

I honestly hope they don’t add it as it's unnecessary and well rather stupid IMO as people who are buying Mass Effect 1 2 and 3 are here for the story line and RPG mechanics, though if they do it's not like we're required to play co-op.
