Nice armor and casual outfit pics, Ryuu. The armor from KoR looks interesting.

First ME3 review from a German mag, no numerical score but it's quite positive.

From the comments: "Sorry to dissapoint you, but it's a Preview. That's what the Word "Vorschau" stands for. And that's the reason why there is no review-score."

Interesting then that it mentions things like the game's length, how many cutscenes there are, and the presence of an additional scene after the end credits? Call it a review or preview, unless the translation is just completely made up, it's clearly describing a full-game playthrough.

Yes, but I think it's a cursory overview probably to get all of the initial traffic. They're still working on the actual review but wanted to bring up the salient points for discussion as soon as they could.

I'm interested in trying a Gold run with some CAGs either tonight or tomorrow. Anyone game? I'd likely be running Asari Adept w/ Stasis Bubble & Throw.

I probably need to get some HP upgrade since I'm heavily invested in my powers at the moment, but I'm willing to try since my unorganized coworkers and I aced a Silver run late last night without any real issues.

I would for sure but I don't have access to my 360 until next week. Good luck though, remember Phantoms start coming at wave 4!

I'd look for the original article, toss it into Google Translate and see what comes up.

Should be amusing in either case.

i've trapped more than 1 phantom in a stasis bubble before...and if they come out from multiple locations.

...that's what my 3 other teammates are for. ;)

inferno grenade, carnage, bitch slap works great with my Krogan. any cags that wanna friend me i am down for trying whatever, i been playing bronze only as i dont have enough on for silvers or better and they always turn into pooch screws and drop outs with randoms. Hell, most of the time on bronze I end up carrying a team with almost double the score.

One was great they were making fun of my (had my mic unplugged with baby awake) pistol only approach. After they all 3 went down from a single turret on wave ten, one dropped out, the other two watched as i took apart the rest of the wave myself and the atlas. The only thing said after that was.. Holy Shit.

Some of my impressions:

Drell Vanguard has a really pathetic barrier (300ish). It's fun to play on bronze where you can just charge everyone and spam cluster grenades everywhere and be #1 on score easily but you get raped on silver and gold.

Stasis makes Phantoms a joke, they can't even get close to you.

For the purposes of the demo, the best classes right now seem to be Human Vanguards, Infiltrators, and Asari Adepts.

A fully upgraded Claymore will probably be able to one shot everything except an Atlas or Phantom on Gold. And you don't even need to get up close, it's even good at mid range.

Carnifex will headshot kill normal humans on bronze :)

I've been able to solo bronze with some classes, do silver without much trouble with a competent group, and got to wave 6 on gold with an ok random group.

If anyone wants to do regular silver runs or give gold a serious try, add me gamertag Tony20811

Got in an open room and a guy glitched out of the map causing everyone's shields to recharge crazy fast. Was weird we were all pretty much unkillable.

my favorite glitch so far was a Guardian that REGENERATED shields when we shot him after he got knocked down and stuck in the floor without his shield., not allowing us to finish.

I am wanting to fight some reapers now.

Spam? You get max 3 after the upgrade.

A krogan soldier isn't half bad either. High melee with quick carnage recharge does fairly well.

Yes, I'm quite encouraged by the video I saw. Looks like it encourages exploration without making it monotonous and forcing you to pay attention or suffer the consequences.

Apparently the penalty for touching one of those map-roaming Reapers is instant game over.

it's not all about the phantoms because when there are nemesis sniping at you and atlases coming around the corridor your concentration wavers sometimes. and there's always that engineer that sneaks into the middle of the group and puts down a turret. not all the phantoms will charge at you on gold, they will split up, snipe at you while others flank you. they don't all go down with one shot to the head either, if you have anything lower than a widow II. SO MUCH trust is required and i doubt that i will ever try it with a group of randoms. after you go gold, everything else just seems so much less epic haha

I just read that the Cerberus Daily News is updating again. It should be bringing us news of the Reaper invasion all this week. :D

Krogan soldiers hold up fairly well in gold as long as you resist the urge to headbutt everything in sight ;)

basically we agree that our tactics and strategic observations will always be or never be prepared enough for gold level challenge. at least we both want to slap cerberus hard. cheers mate :)
