Just broke 4 million credits saved up. Was shooting for 5 million by Tuesday but 6 may be doable.

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

Does anyone want to be gay lovers with me in Fable 3?

Yeah when I learned there was one spot in that part you could cover in and overall be ok I was like ohhhhhhhh, was able to get it a lot easier then.

Finding that spot and hunkering down is what saved one of my controllers from meeting my TV in an ugly manner.

Shrike, buddy, well said. That was a bear of a sequence in an otherwise tame mission. Felt good after that achievement popped.

I can deal with getting mobbed, I can deal with getting mobbed on my own, though there were some cheap moments in that section of Arrival.

I think spamming Singularity with my Adept made parts of that easier to deal with, though often random spawning enemies tended to make things a bit cheap. Spamming Charge with my Vanguard seemed to be easier to deal with it as a whole.

If you are looking to save up credits for the DLC Tuesday I would suggest checking this out.

Speedrun Tutorial

A few buddies of mine teamed up with the guy making the video to give tutorials. They are also teaching on BSN, just look for the Team AreleX speedrun tutorial thread if interested.

So got Paragon Lost for my birthday and registered the code. What does it unlock for MP? Didn't say on the slip and doesn't say on BSN.

It just unlocks a pack in MP. Nothing exciting, just some gear. I don't think you get any weapons or characters even. Hope you enjoy the movie! I liked it better than the DA movie from last year.

I don't know why my post never went up but I basically said wow that's a beast of a speed run. If only I knew spawning was related to where you look!

Anyone else just watch that livestream of the new Reckoning DLC? Hoo boy. Wish I had saved up my credits like theredworm did.

Edit: had to come back and put in what I caught. I missed the beginning. I caught the Krogan with the hammer (works on a charge base for power, but his heavy melee is still the animation), an equip pack to add the Batarian melee to classes (yes, they used a volus as an example), the Alliance Infiltration Unit (EDI basically), Geth Juggernaut (missed most of that, did see some nice shield and drone powers), what I think was a batarian (right when I came in, it was the "archer class", much like the ballistic blades, but like a crossbow), and they danced around what the adept would be the entire stream. Right at the very very end, they snuck over to it.....looks like a Collector.

Forgot to mention the Turian female too. Had a charge-through attack like a Vanguard, but she phases through and damages enemies. Also a poison blade attack.

Anyone think this should be spoiler tagged?

Wanna see the Adept? Edit 2:

I'm pretty impressed by this last bit of MP DLC. So many great things. From the Geth Juggernaut with those crazy shields and health, to the Batarian melee gear (volus w/ melee what???), to the omni crossbow, new challenges and banners, etc. The new adept has me scratching my head, though. I'm not too hung up on what would work in canon and what would not, but that just strikes me as odd. Why not a straight-up Prothean? That's like having a husk be like "hey dudes, don't shoot, I've had a change of heart. I'm not a good aim with an assault rifle, but I can lob some grenades or something." It's just odd. I wonder if it has something to do with the Citadel DLC?

Also, it's a crying shame we never got our throwback ME1 maps. Ilos and Virmire would've been badass. Same for no Omega MP maps. Those were screaming for multiplayer. Oh well. I'm perfectly content with what we're getting.

Hey, I'd love a husk kit where my heavy melee was some frantic arm flailing followed by leaping into a trooper's arms...

Wow...that sounds....weird...

I'm guessing the new Awakened Collector is a Leviathan thrall.

Ooh now that's good. I'm a sucker for the leviathan alpha race and what it/they could mean for the future of the franchise.

Has anyone posted a list of all the new weapons included in the DLC? I saw the kits a couple pages back. I have about 2.5 mil saved up and I don't know whether to buy reserves packs or arsenal packs. I have dreadful luck with unlocks so probably won't be getting them all with my credits (still don't have the N7 Fury!)

I invited Wombat to the thread b/c apparently he didn't know there were so many CAG's that played the ME 3 MP regularly.

I guess it may be time for me to get back on the horse also.

- This game has one of the best Horde modes (maybe *the* best so far).

- All of the DLC for multiplayer has been free. Each includes new characters, which keeps things fresh (vs. Gears where each match feels the same).

- Matches only last 15-30 minutes; great for casual friends who don't have as much gaming time. You can also marathon several in a row if you want to earn some serious XP or in-game credits.

- The base game is only $14 right now on newegg. Because all the MP DLC has been free, it's been easy to get friends on parity and in the game with everything, cheaply.

This has been a great experiment and I've had a ton of fun with it. I'm kinda sad it's probably lightning in a bottle and that the next attempt will monetize it too much, or screw up something else...
