Just picked up Jack and heard the words I've been dreading... "The Illusive Man wishes to speak with you in the debriefing room Commander." :lol:

I started Mass Effect in 2008 and finished it in 2012. Beat the 2nd one and all the DLC. I got at least halfway through Mass Effect 3 and never finished it. This thread has inspired me to do so. However, it will have to wait a while. Destiny is upon us.

I was just at a job fair today and haha one time I said thanks for talking with me to one of the vendors I thought in my head, "I should go."

Dude, you have to go back eventually and finish ME3 along with its DLC. Just forget anything you've heard and play it, then make your own judgement.

$14 to have the entire trilogy digitally?  Worth it.  No question.

All right, this is impressive.  Playing ME without firing a single shot.

I liked the game a lot and still have avoided spoilers. I just have issues where I play the shit out of one or two games and then something new comes out, and I abandon the old game(s). It bugs me, but that's just how I am. I rarely ever get rid of games, though, so I still have ME3 on my shelf.

Oh, most definitely. I put more hours into that than any game ever, in all seriousness.

thanks in advance.

 

can anyone point me to a solid insanity walkthrough for me3. my last two achievements will be completed with an insanity playthrough. I never attempted on the first two entries. with work, and new(ish) baby, time is limited. that said I have not been able to stop playing this game. I avoided the multiplayer for so long (figured I would be horrible, thought it would be more emphasis on gunplay...silly me), but grew to really enjoy it recently. I just feel like I owe it to myself to knock everything out in this game.

1. Squad Cryo Ammo

2. Pop Adrenaline Rush, snipe all the conveniently frozen enemies

3. Profit

In a way, I think it might have killed some of the replayability of the ME3 campaign for me. Part of the reason why I played ME2 4 times (aside from the awesome plot, awesome characters, awesome gameplay, awesome everything), was because I just wanted to play more Mass Effect, but with ME3's co-op, I spent a lot of time getting more ME that way. Also the whole "mystery box" element sucked me in. That was my favorite thing about Zombie mode in Call of Duty honestly.

There's some new ME merch at the biowarestore including a jacket and a calendar for 2015.  But, here's what I found interesting, the write-up on the calendar:

 

"Mass Effect is an award-winning, best-selling series of science fiction role playing games developed by the Canadian company BioWare. With 4 books and 5 comics in publication and both a film and anime adaptation in the works, Mass Effect has mass appeal. Sellers is proud to offer the Mass Effect 3 16-month calendar."

 

http://www.biowarest...iowme2in1jacket

 

We haven't heard jack squat about the movie for years and they mention *another* anime in the works.  I wonder if it's legit?

I'm a big anime fan and I was indifferent with the one that came out focusing mainly Vega. Movies take forever, yeah.

In a rare serendipitous occurrence for yours truly, I just happened to receive a $15 Best Buy rewards certificate over the weekend. The only Mass Effect DLC I was missing was Citadel and Omega. So I picked up a $15 XBL currency card and my collection is complete! Still need to finish the last 1/3 of ME3's campaign with my Paragon Vanguard FemShep.

Dude, if you haven't played some of that DLC, get yer ass back into ME right quick because it's some of the best DLC out there.

So I read today that EA's license for Unreal Engine has expired and not been renewed. Meaning a next-gen remaster of the Mass Effect trilogy is now MUCH less likely, since they'd need to port the games to Frostbite. Or, I guess, if/when re-releases do happen, they will necessarily be ground-up remakes rather than quick spruce-up jobs.

Hey, I figured you guys would know this so thanks in advance. Can the DLC be played immediately or fairly soon independent of story progress?

I lost my ME3 save file in a tragic hard drive crash a couple years ago so I've always been too mad to even think about the DLC. But I'm tempted now.

Could I import my ME2 character and just go right to the DLC worlds? Or at least not have to play for too long to get the ability to travel there?
