With this game, I'm not worried about price. I'm more concerned with pre-order and retailer exclusive bonus'. I'll go with Amazon because I heart Amazon unless some other place has a killer bonus.

Yeah, after tax it's only like $4 cheaper than Amazon for me. However, the prospect of going to pick it up at the store myself rather than leaving it in the hands of the postal service has a certain appeal... This is ME3, nothing must be left to chance. :lol:

well it was just my personal experience. it was my first pre-order too at best buy. i had to travel to a different best buy a couple of miles away to get my copy. it was also the only copy left for the 360

whats ironic is that the copy i purchased was a reserved copy. it was under the counter at customer service. the rep declined to sell it to me, but then said that there is probably more in the back (which i doubt).

lol...

so i think its "safer" to get it shipped.

The only other site-to-store preorder I've done with Best Buy was L.A. Noire, and that worked out fine. Now that I think about it though, they put a bunch of ugly stickers all over the game to mark it as a reserved online preorder. No big deal since it was on top of the shrink wrap, but will the outer packaging for ME3 N7 be shrink wrapped? Argh.

If you're doing the BB pre-order for in-store pickup, then I would suggest keeping both pre-orders.

If you're having the BB pre-order for shipment, then I don't think you should need to worry about it.

Dude looks just like Soap from Call of Duty. And I will comment no further. ;)

ETA: Actually, I will comment. The ME wiki has this to say about Vega: "While Vega is an experienced soldier, he is unfamiliar with the seedy underbelly and political workings of the galaxy... According to BioWare, James Vega will reflect the perspective of a new player coming to the franchise."

I love this. Vega is the entree into the Mass Effect series mythology for Call of Duty players, so they gave him the same role as a Call of Duty protagonist, and even borrowed his appearance from a Call of Duty protagonist. The whole thing is delightfully meta.

I don't know man, I don't think I like this. I thought this was the "Sanders" character that we heard about. I just don't want my beloved Mass Effect to be dumbed down for my douchebag brother in law who only plays Call of Duty and Tiger Woods Golf, know what I mean?

Little piece of news for you PC gamers:

On the plus side, this article states that no content (other than physical items for console CE) are exclusive to either PC or Console. But it will be the only way to get the "Deluxe" edition.

Is this the character you play as if you import a game where Shepard died in 2, or is this going to be the Zaeed-type character I give 2 shits about?

If Shepard dies in ME2, that's it, he's/she's dead. That save file isn't importable.

Oh, and don't hate on Zaeed. He's the shit. 8-)

Speaking of the angry aussie, Zaeed, do we know if he'll return in ME3? Or how about Kasumi? They're decent enough characters, but with staples like Garrus and Liara and so on, I don't see them being that worthy of much attention in ME3.

BioWare has said that every squad member from ME1 and 2 will appear in ME3, including Zaeed and Kasumi. They seem like prime candidates to be relegated to NPC roles though.

I actually really like kasumi so I wish they would do more with her than just an npc appearance. You are probably right though unfortunately.

Mass Effect lead gameplay designer Christina Norman leaves Bioware

I have to think that ME3's gameplay is pretty well locked down by now, but still, it seems a little weird to me that such a prominent person at Bioware would leave the company right before the release of such an important game.

Yeah, it's gotta be pretty solid. It's no wonder that after all of the improvements she did that someone else nabbed her. Sometimes it's time to move on. Good for her.

Zaeed has more personality than this Vega idiot. Did one of the artists at Bioware let their 13-year old design him?

I'm pissed off at Zaeed because to succeed in his mission I had to slaughter tons of innocent people. The final scene was cool though.

Also thanks on the confirmation that a Shepard dead save is not importable.

Actually, you can do that mission without letting those innocents die, if you have a high enough Paragon or Renegade score. I went through it and managed to save those innocents on a Paragon playthrough. Renegade playthrough, let them all die.
