Hmm, Liara and Garrus have their own personal Paragon/Renegade meters? What's that about?


Shepard has had a lot of influence on his companions throughout the series, particularly Garrus. It would be awesome if Garrus actually acted differently in certain situations based on how you've influenced him.

He refuses to mention the unspeakable things he's doing for Casey Nelson in exchange for being in the inner circle of ME3 info. ;)

(SPOILER WARNING FOR THIS LINK) In case anyone missed it earlier, here's a great rundown of footage from E3, as well as some stuff not seen in any conference. Again, SPOILER WARNING.

Also, don't get too excited about squad paragon/renegade. Looks like it was left in by mistake. From Casey Hudson's Twitter:

Yea, we wanted to show some of the RPG stuff, but screens aren't done. Squad renegade/paragon won't be there.

Crap, when you say spoiler warning, you mean spoiler warning. There were definitely a few plot details in there I hadn't already known.

Ah, damn, sorry. I edited the post a bit to hopefully help people out who may be on the fence about watching.

Honestly, I told myself I wasn't going to watch stuff like this, but I couldn't help myself. The spoilers out there now bring more questions than answers, at least.

No worries. I'm sure there's going to be lots of other awesome secrets in the game itself. But damn, that spoiler came right out of left field in the video, didn't it? Maybe I should put a moratorium on watching any ME3 videos.

I was thinking the "why doesn't it work with just a headset" but it seems like using the Kinect will allow Bioware to focus on the game and let it do the voice recognition work for them. Also I've been wanting to quick swap weapons for a while now, yah!

Full details on the N7 edition:

I wanted to bring this up again because I don't think there has been much discussion about the character/mission that has to do with "the prothean". This is one piece of the CE that has me really curious. Has there been any talk of this out of E3?

I actually read on the BioWare board that they're now calling "The Prothean" a typo/mistake. But then again the same devs denied that Garrus was a squadmate in ME2, etc. It could be that the title/content of the DLC was supposed to be an Archangel-like surprise but the cat got out of the bag early.

I follow you and that does make sense. I could see this being a " find an artifact mission" but how crazy would it be if somehow there was a prothean in your crew?? Maybe having an actual "person" might be a stretch, but what if they have a prothean AI that you can bring on board the Normandy to give you insight into the last invasion? That'd be interesting.

Sorry for the double-post, but this is on something different......

For those interested, there are Mass Effect 3 lanyards on ebay from E3 last week. I picked one up for about $20 shipped. Sure, that's stupid, but it's a unique ME3 collectible and I'm sure I'll get comments from it at work (we have to wear badges on lanyards around our neck). I kind of collect gaming lanyards and this will be the jewel of that collection.

Phenomenal footage in that Q&A conference, and the three demo items they showed make me think that they have the right match between RPG and shooter. I also agree that there's certainly some spoilerific items there, though I think it's worth the look. Thank you for posting it, my hype for the game is now on overdrive from that item.

I actually read on the BioWare board that they're now calling "The Prothean" a typo/mistake. But then again the same devs denied that Garrus was a squadmate in ME2, etc. It could be that the title/content of the DLC was supposed to be an Archangel-like surprise but the cat got out of the bag early.

I think they're protesting too much.

Maybe having an actual "person" might be a stretch, but what if they have a prothean AI that you can bring on board the Normandy to give you insight into the last invasion? That'd be interesting.

Could be Vigil from ME1 that was recovered in some form, though I remember that he was destroyed after giving his final message to Shepard. Backup copy found on another Prothean world, like an offsite research colony that escaped the Reapers?

Frankly I don't believe it. But then again I didn't believe the "Better with Kinect" cover art either. And EA added multiplayer to the Dead Space series, which is only slightly less ridiculous than multiplayer in Mass Effect.

If it is real, I just hope that, like Dead Space, I can safely ignore it and not miss any achievements.

As long as the single-player doesn't suffer, I'm indifferent towards it. I've already ignored plenty of games multiplayer modes.

Not buying it. Site has no credibility, and any time someone brings up a "secret source," I'm not going to believe anything until I see concrete proof.

I'm also in the "it's complete crap" category about this ME3 multiplayer "rumor".

Reading over what they listed for this mulitplayer mode, it reads like something you'd have for Halo 3 ODST, Halo Reach, Gears of War 2 and the numerous other shooters out there.

I think people should tweet this link to Casey Hudson and the like at Bioware, plus post this link on the Bioware forums and let them rip the "author" apart. :D

Two other articles from the same site. First one has mostly minor spoilers but one semi-big one regarding the opening scene shown at E3. Second is about regrets of Mass Effect 1.

The one issue with a pre-order at BB is that you have a rolling/repeated authorization on the purchasing credit card until the order ships, so you'll be seeing these one a week from now until March 6th.

Amazon doesn't do that, so if you're thinking that a BB pre-order works like an Amazon pre-order, it doesn't.

I'd prefer to get it from Amazon, so hopefully after enough time with BB having the price @ $69.99 and enough emails to Amazon, they lower the price to match.
