Wow thanks! I didn't see any thread about ME3 CE $20 previously. Checked online gamestop, in stock near by, went to store, the employee was holding it for himself to buy after his shift, but I got it. He said it (only 1) came in yesterday, new $19.99 sticker came off easily.
I'm pretty sure this has more content than the $60 Trilogy will have, right? Since CE comes with From Ashes DLC, and the online pass was different than normal, labeled CE and comes with some guns?
Already had ME2 with Cerebus network (just missing 1 DLC The Arrival only, right?) for $10. That $60 price on the Trilogy set is such a joke.
Now I just need to wait for ME1. I'm positive it'll be PSN download only for PS3, with the Trilogy having a voucher like Resident Evil bogus set. So we'll see, I'm in no rush with my backlog collection.
Glad you bit on the series now, instead of waiting. I skipped Arrival and just watched it online but Overlord, LOtSB and Kasumi's Revenge are definitely worth it. Haven't played any ME3 DLC aside from the CE and the From Ashes DLC....Omega is coming out soon and should be interesting. Not sure how much more DLC will come after that.
It's strange for me to imagine playing through ME2 without knowing the story in full or having a save from ME1, so I feel for you...but compared to ME2 and ME3 the controls and fighting will feel slightly odd. They did a lot of revamping with the past two games compared to ME1 obviously.
You could always trade in ME3 + ME2 and get the trilogy, since you have the DLC already, no? It would end up being about $30 in total probably but maybe BF will have a deal or two on it.
ME1 is worth the play and/or buy. People really love it more than the latter two, although I must say that ME2 is my favorite. Then ME3 barely before ME1. ME1 was pure and uncomplicated. ME2 was big in scope and epic, ME3 was different but still good IMO (due to the changes and multiplayer mode). One of my favorite series to play through and I am even going to go back and do ME1 through ME3 after the holidays when I have the time myself.
