That would make sense if it was in-game multi hours only, mening not in lobbies or what not.

So I'm rollin with a group of randoms on Gold and my team is all dead. So I play the run away (I'm a Salarian Engie) snipe, power, rinse repeat. I systematically take out enemy after enemy and there are like 5 enemies left when the hosts leaves. FFUUUUUUUUUU

So is progression tracked as a whole or just if you finish a round because I had so many headshots with my widow!

No new character classes unlocked, got collector rifle and N7 Shadow though. I want that Turian Havoc!

Seriously, glitched perhaps (they found a loophole). How the hell do you solo Platinum!?:cold:

Use the Turian Ghost (Infiltrator) with Harrier, it is almost an automatic win. Already solo'd gold twice with him with very minimal effort.

To get the lone wolf title you only need 3 of the 4 though and doing a gold also counts 1 for silver and bronze. So 2 gold also gives you 2 silver and bronze, 3 silver gives you 3 bronze, and that leaves 5 bronze to do for those who can't or don't want to solo Platinum (like myself, too many synch kill units).

ME merch news:

I just got the 2013 wall calendar and its awesome! It is full of art from the lithos and features shots of the weapons, locations, and characters. I got it from amazon for $10. Best calendar ever.

Quick question: are the online passes tied to gamertag? It has been a while since I played and I don't remember where/how I redeemed that. My son will be 13 soon and I think at that time EA deems that he is able to play online so I might want to get him a pass if he can't play under my redemption. But I think you redeem those in-game and not as XBL codes, so that's why I thought maybe it was tied to gamertag.

GS is giving nearly $20 for ME3 with their +50% promo and I just picked up a new copy at Best Buy the other day. So if I trade my old one and keep the new one I'll get another pass for him to use (thus why I am asking ;)). I haven't played in a long time - never even bothered to watch the new endings. But I hear the multiplayer is ever-changing so maybe I'll jump back in at some point.

Lol hmm I guess I have something for my Christmas wish, that is a perfect gift for me. :)

Omega out the Nov 27th, 1200 MSP. Double the size of any previous ME3 DLC and you guessed it focuses around Aria. Hell to the yeah!

Supposedly this picture outs Aria as a temporary squadmate. It's hard to make out but it's blue and it doesn't look like Liara's icon. :)

The Online Pass is just like any other DLC. Not only is it tied to gamertag, but you have to make sure you've downloaded it to the current xbox (via your Download History). So, yes, your plan should work, especially since ME3 is 2 discs and either disc can be used to play online. You'll just want to make extra sure that the correct account is redeeming the new Online Pass, and that each account downloads the online pass on both Xboxes, in case you guys switch around or something.

I haven't personally done this, but it should work. I have 2 consoles, and since the downloaded DLC will activate for any user on the first console it is downloaded on, I've had friends come over and use my primary unit and disc 1 to play multiplayer, while I redownload everything and use disc 2 on the 2nd unit in the Office.

That's awesome, man. My playarts Garrus finally showed up and he's just as good as I'd hoped. Even more stoked for Femshep and Tali now. And DAT REAPER.

Also, stoked for Omega. This has been an awesome year of Mass Effect for me.

If its not too much trouble, could you post a pic or two of the Garrus playarts? I'm still on the fence about it due to next to zero funds for collectibles. Still....Garrus is muh boy!

Omega sounds cool, but there's nothing rally tangible for us to sink our teeth into though. I should reread that comic series. I remember it as being solid.

Lastly, last night I opened the best premium spectre pack yet. Got the adaptive war amp IV (biotic gear that I use a lot), the krogan battlemaster that I still hadn't unlocked and the Volus engineer! I promptly specked out and named that pudgy little bastard "Danny Devito ". Heh.

I was super lucky too. In my first PSP after installing the new content I got the Volus engineer and the collector assault rifle. I was pleasantly surprised at how effective the Volus was. With an area tac scan and area shield refill he's like the perfect support class. Also a bit of a tank on bronze. A brute couldn't drain my shields as fast as I could refill them. It was pretty funny to stand toe to toe with him as a Volus. Haven't taken him into higher difficulty yet but now I'm back up to lvl 16 so I feel like I can give it a try.

I dunno. IMO the whole Blasto thing was a mildly funny one-off joke that becomes less and less funny the more they try to stretch it out. This just seems... desperate.

If it's twice the size of previous ME3 DLC, I guess we're looking at 4-6 hours of playtime. Since Leviathan was about 2-3 hours at 800MSP, I guess this is a "bargain". :lol:

Thanks for the pic, Ian. I don't know what I'm more impressed with....the Garrus figure or the fact that you have the Stacking Russian nesting dolls. That's pretty hardcore and I'm still pissed we never got Costume Quest toys.

And I love the ME comics. Ill be all over that Blasto comic!

So reading the official Omega description, on Bioware's blog, one has to assume we get a paragon/renegade torture scene led by, who would have it any other way, Aria!!!? :P

Collector's are no joke. Diggin' this. Not sure if MP seems harder because it is, or if I just kinda suck at it now.

That thing is sweet, but $500? Just can't do it. That's insane, even if it is a nice, high quality watch.

^Oh I already am lol, planning on picking up the Normandy ship and Mass Effect playing cards as Christmas presents to myself, and may snag a couple of the figures too! Way too many goodies for me to not get at least a few lol especially since I wont buy Omega DLC (and have yet to buy Leviathan)
