    I'd Hit That...

Posted 28 February 2012 - 02:36 AM

yeah i have found that being the charge in Krogan gets you dead fast with teh horrible hit detection of melee... wqhich i hope changes in release... nothing more annoying or unrealistic than a full on charge that swipes through them or fails to hit them as they fall because it seems to not be possible to aim down.

all in all i can see several classes excelling in MP, i really think the pistol/powers combo is going to be the most efficient, but i still wanna try a wide variety and see how well they bounce off others for support. Finally unlocked another race in the Quarian engineer and am now in the market for a Claymore which i have only seen once.

ill be loggin in for a few rounds of whatever if anyone wants to add me up.

Apparently the penalty for touching one of those map-roaming Reapers is instant game over.


Doesn't really make sense. So you go back to the auto save the game did right after you went into exploration mode?

I don't know about you guys, but I've been trying to stay in the dark about this game as much as possible, so I don't get anything ruined for me. Can't decide if I should preorder with Amazon or just run to Best Buy Tuesday morning.

Not trying to call anyone out, but it always kind of amazes me that people are scrambling around right before/on/after the release date trying to get CEs, when it's been available for preorder for months.

I mean, it doesn't surprise me that some people who don't follow games super closely would just be unaware of the release until after the fact, and would need to hit eBay for a CE. But this is CAG! You'd think everyone who's into games enough to be a member at a site like this would be well aware that they could preorder in advance.

You'd think everyone who's into games enough to be a member at a site like this would be well aware that they could preorder in advance.

You can nail down a pre-order at Amazon and never have to worry about it until right before release, when you'd have to pay for it. You'd be covered just in case you don't find a better deal beforehand.

Anyone who frequents this site even just a little should know the drill by now.

As I commented about in said thread:

I'd say zero to none pre-release. Post-release, however, there's a very slim chance. Whenever a CE sells out, Amazon almost always puts it back up for a very short period because of returns.

There's also usually some that comes back into the order availability because people forget to update their credit card information or some other stupid move that prevents the order from being processed.

I doubt you will see any more from now until release date save the occasional pre-order cancellation, though they're likely to be non-existent at this point.

Maybe in the first 30 days after release, with returns, though beyond that, it should depend if EA allows any more stock to hit the channel besides pre-orders. After 30 days post-release, I'd say that it's likely to be gone.

Everyone that was running around the last few weeks trying to secure a pre-order, good luck with that, though it's been months of time before now that could have a pre-order secured.

Exactly.

I think I found a buyer for my extra copy of the CE. :) My brother finally tried ME2, and he's become an instant obsessed superfan. And it only took two years of me hammering on him! :lol:

If you have a GS that is run by a manager that follows the letter of the law, any unsold CE that was reserved is available for free sell starting on Friday morning, unless someone called and asked if it was held a little later for financial reasons.

Thanks for posting that. I forgot my amazon.com card expired at the first of the year. I just changed it to another card. Funny thing is I don't remember getting a new amazon card.

A very bad-ass article (IMO) about why Mass Effect is the most important scifi universe of our generation (it's on io9.com, so if you dislike io9/Kotaku/Gawker/etc., this link isn't for you):

http://io9.com/58861...-our-generation

I thought it was a fascinating read, though it's spoilerific if you've gone through ME1 + ME2, and since it's in here, you obviously have. :D

There's always some butthurt people making comments with broad-sweeping statements like in this article.

I think the review embargo is likely to be Tuesday, though we'll probably see some inking out later Monday evening. Since Europe gets it on the 9th, we won't see any advance reviews from there.

Remember when Fox ran that piece about Mass Effect and calling the Xbox the Sex-box? I got an Entertainment Weekly sent to my house a few weeks ago and on the cover was something about Vampire Diaries and there was a chick in her underwear on the freaking cover. It's a family magazine!!! God forbid you get a blue digitized alien ass for 2 seconds out of 50+ hours of gameplay though...

Based on what little I know of the ending, it seems a lot of people have unrealistic expectations as to how this could be resolved. That doesn't mean it can't be done well though.
