Just saying, there's no good reason to stick it out. If you want to, great. Go for it. For others, there's less reason to spend extra time.

Getting stomped on gold and platinum is the worst shit ever. Like, "I kinda don't want to play this anymore." bad. Apparently Atlas mechs have a ground stomp? That's news to me.

Got the Harrier, anyway. Stoked to try swapping my Saber out for it on a few characters.


i've died to Atlas stomps...though i think if they just walk over you, you dead. kinda makes sense but there doesnt seem to be an animation for a XXX - ton mecha walking over your fragile under armored body.

ah saber...the other s-word.

is there a mod that lets you zoom faster?

Mass Effect movie script is written

It's based on the first game. Shepard is male. Apparently those are the only details that are known!

For me....two of the most important boxes checked. ME1 would lend itself very well to a big budget Hollywood caliber film. Having this turn out decent will require the infinite power of the Enkindlers, the Goddesses, Andastre, and who knows what else. Game-movies don't have a great track record.

Here's a thought.....what if Shepard only plays a bit part and its really about a young mans journey to find himself, in a galaxy where human kind d is just barely coming into its own. That man? Conrad Verner. God, please no.

I'd love to see Brandon Keener, Liz Sroka, et al. lend their voices to the movie for any characters who would likely be CGI or have concealed faces anyway. Tricia Helfer and Seth Green could actually play their characters wholesale.

Squad goal...this should be cake, esp if you have an earth pack character. I think I'll do it on silver just to get it out of the way 1st unless CAG in d'house then we do it bling bling style nahmsayin?

Special Circumstance? so, we all turtle longer in FWG? roger dat.

if they be stompin your heads in gold, I might do a lot of silver runs to level up my characters. I never really recovered from the promote 3 lvl 20's operation.

I'll be on deck for some golds this weekend. I was a little heated when I made that post last night; it's honestly not the worst thing in the world. It's more of a bummer when your random teammate lets an Assault Trooper waltz right past him to make paste out of your face.

Harrier's cool, but damn that ammo dries up quick. Think I'll probably stick with the Claymore/Saber setup on my Destroyer for now. That class has grown on me hard.

If they don't use the voice actors that have voice the non-human characters, they'd be insane without question.

I can't imagine any of the non-human characters without their respective voice actors. It just wouldn't work and I could see it bombing for that reason alone.

Keith David as Captain Anderson and Lance Henriksen as Admiral Hackett would be good choices as well IMO.

Although thinking about it just makes me wish they had an actual actor potray Shepard, and not some male model.

Anyway, guess I'll have to play some in the next couple days to try and unlock an N7 character.

I'd think those should be other "they'd be crazy if they didn't use these actors for their characters" choices like the voice actors for the non-human characters. Besides those two, there's no other ones that jump out at me that would be mistakes if they didn't cast.

Seth Green for Joker also seems like a "duh" choice, though you never can tell.

Yvonne Strahovski, assuming there's elements from ME2/ME3 in the film or a sequel.

In terms of "It's not Mass Effect without ___'s voice", Martin Sheen's performance as the Illusive Man is maybe the one performance that defines Mass Effect for me. That would hurt to hear a different voice for that character. Martin Sheen is probably too old to play TIM though.

Yea, Harrier really needs an increase to spare ammo, say 80 to 120 minimum. I don't actually mind the magazine size, just that the spare needs more. Also, being made a Rare item would help a lot. Even with the Destroyer's 60% magazine increase, it's only 48/80 at Harrier I (with extended magazine, I might add).

I'm sure Yvonne Strahovski wouldn't mind one bit playing Miranda, since the character model was made off of her, of course. :D

TIM would have to be done by Martin Sheen for the voice, yes. Unless they pulled a Jeff Bridges-style de-aging process like they did in Tron Legacy, it couldn't be done properly. No question there. Was odd that I saw him when he was in The Amazing Spiderman as Uncle Ben and that same evening I finished ME3 with the endgame including TIM. ;)

I honestly hope the movie gets stuck in development hell. I just can't see it being good.

The Bioshock movie's been in development hell for a while, so this might suffer the same fate.

I can't see them getting it right either, though you never know. Give it to a director that knows what he's doing and we might get lucky. Anyone but Uwe Boll. :shock:

So, what happens if you have all the Earth DLC characters and customization options? I have all and I'm getting close to maxing out all options for each one.

Chris Priestley tweeted that if you have all of the Earth Characters that you'll get a rare card instead. So, at least they thought of that. It seems like they tried to be extra specific about the details this time, which is nice.

Thanks for the info; it's good to know.

And while it's nice that they'll try to "do better next time", it's kind of sad they won't own up to their mistake from last time. Clarification wasn't received until halfway through the Operation, possibly resulting in a lot of frustrated MP people.

I talked to support a few days ago and they said oh yeah you should have gotten a Commendation Pack, you can wait for the next weekend challenge as today it's expired (or something like that). Wooot, another Operation! I'm gonna get two CPs this time. ^^
AND my vote for Shepard would be Karl Urban but than again I'm looking forward to Dredd 3D and I thought he was a good soldier in Doom.

I mean come on, Mass Effect weapon action shot.

I had also thought Jessica Steen, Armageddon notoriety (badass astronaut vibe), for femShep but like you mentioned they're going with a male actor.

Also I don't understand how, as this is the main quality of the series, a movie could show branching storylines with Paragon/Renegade decisions. Yeah in that sense I agree hope it stalls out, hoping it's completely as awesome as it sounds under my breath.
