Nice little snippet about the new husks, especially the asari husk.

I think I'm about this close -> <- to taking off a couple of days from work to play ME3 with everything they've been teasing about it.


I'm with you. Yes, I'm a grown man with children and a wife and work and responsibilities. But, damn....what's one day for little old me? I don't think I've ever taken a day off just because of a game release. This might be worth it, especially if there is a midnight launch.

I think that is some fine advice. ;)

In other news, my order of my Normandy SR-2 replica has shipped out. :D Should be here by the end of the week. I went with the Alliance/non-Cerberus variant you can find all over the place, as the Cerberus variant was only order-able from the Bioware online store at the time I placed my order.

Linky (though I had it price matched to other sites down to $27.99):

Looks like they have also the Cerberus version for order as well, which is just the "old" Cerberus paint scheme from ME2, versus the Alliance paint scheme that is supposed to show up in ME3 when the Alliance "claims" the Normandy from Shepard during the trial:

please post pics of the actual Normandy model. I've been on the fence about this forever and would love to see the final, real thing. I should order is now or else they'll probably sell out.

BioWare: Mass Effect 1, 2 "just a preamble" to Mass Effect 3

Nice article overall but this bit made me grit my teeth a little:

You could say the previous games were just a preamble to this moment. Everything has been building to this. It's like the Superbowl. Who cares what happened in the regular season? Now's the one that matters.



Um, pretty much all of us care a lot about what happened in the regular season, since one of the major selling points of your game series is the continuity of playing the same save file over multiple games. Of course I understand what the guy is trying to say, but seriously, BioWare needs to figure out how to keep their people on message.

I think EA is lending their marketing people to Bioware for ME3 to make talking points, and that's where statements like this come about.

I would agree, there's quite a few of us that have been working through both prior games with the tales of how everything flows through from ME1 into ME2 and into ME3, both small and large plot points.

Bioware needs to let Casey Husdon talk it up instead of someone like this general manager who sounds more EA than Bioware.

We're spending the morning reviewing all the romance plots and scenes in #ME3. The team has done some amazing work - our best so far.



More blue side-ass for ME3, or less blue side-ass for ME3? Speculate.

There is that to find out, yes. I have to see what happens when you had a LI with Liara in ME1, a LI with Tali in ME2 and then reconciled things with Liara during LoTSB. :D

As for the keyboard, I could find someone to come in and clean it for me for less than half that price though. Highway robbery.

No homo is so Mass Effect 2. In ME3 everyone embraces the full homo.

Hope you're ready for Jacob and Kaidan to fight over your man Shep's heart.

I know I'm ready for Ash and Miranda to get all grabby with my fem Shep. In fact I was born ready.

Ugh... you're bringing me back to how awkward it was when Anders hit on me for the first time in DA2. Literally almost seconds after I did his recruitment mission and had a chance to talk to him.

Anders: If only I had known the Templars set a trap for us. I really appreciate what you've done for me.

Hawke: Yeah... well I kind of didn't have a choice. We need your ma-

Anders: Praise the maker your ass looks riper than a well fed nug that robe...

Hawke: Oh thanks. I work out at least five times a da- wait, what?

If it's anything like that there's a Renegade interrupt with my name on it. Fair warning is all I'm asking for here. I don't mind every living being on the planet admitting their unbridled sexual attraction to my protagonist in the span of five minutes. Just keep it nonchalant, your hands to yourself and don't cut him out of the friend zone because penile fencing duels between the sheets doesn't interest me. I paid for those extra conversations damnit. Quit cockblocking. (pun totally intended)

Exactly. They need to tread carefully to avoid another situation like Anders in DA2. Especially since (like Anders) these characters are already established as straight, or at the very least, have displayed no evidence of bisexuality thus far. Jack, for one, specifically denies being attracted to women, so making her bi is a full-fledged retcon.

Mine is supposed to arrive tomorrow.

Supposedly, the Cerberus version is more rare over the Alliance version, so keep that in mind if you decide to bite on one of them.

Makes me wonder how many points out of 1000 will be MP achievements. Hopefully less than 20%.

The lack of local splitscreen is no big loss.

Limited collector's edition of Art of the Mass Effect Universe is up for pre-order at the BioWare store. It's tempting, but for the same price as the N7 edition of the actual game, I think I'm going to pass, especially since Amazon has the regular edition of the artbook up for a little over $26.

It's honestly the only trilogy I absolutely HAVE to full achievement score despite how feel about its current direction. My love for ME1 runs that deep so Bioware dodged a bullet forcing my hand with nerd points. Still irked they'd nickle and dime like that though when Tali has no plot armor to speak of by the end of ME2 and is a CQC shotgun empress on the battlefield. Dragon Age is a close second but I won't return to the sequel until an Awakening esque expansion is announced. I almost wish they hadn't spoiled me so much with Origins in the first place. ;\

By the way has the Halloween Pulse special surfaced on YouTube yet? I'm too lazy to deal with the hassle of forcing my relic of a PC to dare stream it on the official site.
