I guess the launch trailer is our Zapruder film, analyzing it from all angles to find the shooter on the grassy knoll? :lol:

Speaking of BSN, I think I'm going to stay away after today. People are starting to put mild spoilers (squadmate names and so forth) in thread titles, but I have a feeling it's only going to escalate from here. I'm not interested in finding out about major plot twists or how the game ends from some mook on BSN. :lol:

Just watched the launch trailer, and I agree, it's goosebump-worthy.

I do need to watch it in 720p at home on the big TV, though it's the best launch trailer they've done from ME1 to ME2 to ME3.

In other news, just received my email from B&N about the pre-order DLC code from the Art Of The Mass Effect Universe book purchase.

Redeemed it on Bioware Social Network and it came up as "Unrecognized Item", though it was successfully redeemed. :-s

Might want to wait until Tuesday before redeeming, just to be safe. I did see that I had the Chakram Launcher and the Reckoner-Knight listed under my registered game content with the ME3 "3" next to them. The MP early access was also listed there as well.

EDIT:
Found this posted by The Crotch in the GGT thread about the changes in the rep system, which isn't spoilerific, BTW:

So I went and read something about Mass Effect 3. I willingly put myself in danger of spoilers.

And it was totally worth it. Not spoilers ahead:

There's no penalty for mixing Paragon and Renegade: In Mass Effect 2, if you wanted to get the hardest Charm options, you had to play an almost completely Paragon character. We intended many of those Charms to be fun Easter eggs, but many players felt like they had to play pure Paragon to avoid being penalized by the loss of a dialog option. In Mass Effect 3, your Reputation score determines both Charm and Intimidate options, and that score is determined by adding your Paragon and Renegade scores together. You're still rewarded for being a completionist player and doing as much content as you can, but you can do it as a Paragon or Renegade player without penalty.

Perfect? No. But a billionty times better than what ME2 and ME1 used. Such a huge improvement. Like, if the charm/intimidate system in ME1 and 2 were "Good Berries", then ME3's system would be "Cure Major Wounds" or something.

Yeah, I always wondered why the hell I was getting Renegade points in ME2 when I was doing a pure Paragon path. I always neglect to post this stuff because I assume someone else already has, otherwise I would have posted that :)

I just got a chance to watch the official launch trailer. Wow, just when I think they've reached the top, they figure out a way to leap over it. That was flat out amazing. Got goosebumps from another stupid ME3 trailer! That music is haunting.

I checked raptr and it says I've played the demo for 9 hours. I know that's paltry compared to some of the folks on this thread, but still......9 hours on a demo!

So glad I got Tuesday off of work. :)

Is it bad that I never imported my save from ME1 into ME2 and wont import my save from ME2 to ME3? I plan on beating ME1 on the hardest level after ME3 then importing it to ME2 and doing the same with ME2 then importing it to ME3.

Has anyone tried to hijack an Atlas in multiplayer? I didn't even know you could do it.

its not bad, you just get less bonuses and a not quite fluent experience. Hell, I played ME2 before ME1 as i actually wan't fond of ME1 until i beat ME2. I plan to go through my 3 complete playthroughs in ME3 from imports, then turn around and do a trilogy run with another character.

as far as hijacking an Atlas, no you cannot. I tried nothing but carnifex and widow shots to the glass and it never breaks. I'll be at midnight launch, probably up all night... and took vacation for a week after release... awww sweet sweet Mass Effecting time. Amazon is shipping my one CE 2 CE guides, regular guide, and sealed Japanese ME1, picking up my other 2 CE's and regular edition from Gamestop at midnight.

I am finishing the trainwreck that is Mass Effect Deception just to be all caught up before I dive in, and have already warned the wife I may be a little vacant for at least 2 - 3 days after launch... the glories of being a gamer.

Hell after the 6th you wont seem me post in this thread for maybe 2 or 3 months. With all the work we have at work I don't know when I will be able to play ME3. I might be able to get a day in every 2 weeks. After single player I'm going into the multi and starting back at ME and playing all 3. If I had to get rid of all my games I will say this is a trilogy I would fight to keep.

Same here, i but 192 hours into Skyrim, I've put about 100 into ME1, 120 into ME2, and xxx into ME3. With my 3rd baby in December, i realized i have no need to horde games and sold most and am cutting down to only what i will play a lot. Skyrim, Saints Row TT, MW3, BF3, Dead Island, Fallout 3 and NV, and ME 1 - 3. Now I collect Mass Effect everything instead of hording backlog. I could easily spend another 200+ hours (and plan to) go back through with all the other classes in trilogy runs with at least one on insane to get all the achievements just because.
