I really don't think that Thane won't be a major character in ME3. He's a love interest for female Shepard, was featured in the promotional CGI movies for ME2-- he's even on the cover art! BioWare didn't go to all that trouble just to drop him unceremoniously in the next game.

With Jacob, it seems clear that BioWare intended for him to be a popular/likable character, but he's failed to resonate with most fans. Still, I don't seem them marginalizing any potential love interests from prior games.

You're right about Thane being a number if places in the promotional bits, so that should get him a pass into ME3. I can't see ME3 cutting out any of the ME2 characters that were love interests, just to see where it goes into ME3 from ME2.

I took Jacob to be a drop-in replacement for Kaiden when I first saw him once I made it to the Normandy in ME2. Same type of backstory, same type of personality, at least how I had seen it. Since he's a love interest in ME2, I think he should get a pass into ME3 as well, especially with the times that Bioware has talked about the flow of decisions into ME3 from ME2. Love interests certainly seem like a big one to me for flowthrough into ME3 from ME2.

The human male LI has never been popular in Bioware games. Carth, Kaidan, Jacob etc. That's because most of us are playing are males, and if our femshep is going to get nasty, it's going to be some alien dude. Part of this is because we're perverted and part of it is because we can't take the emotional implication of placing ourselves in a character's mindset that loves another human male in a sexual way.

I know that's true for me. I enjoy role-playing as a woman, sometimes moreso than as a guy, but a romantic relationship with a man, even within that context, is not something I'm interested in. My fem Shepards generally go for Liara or stay foreveralone.jpg.

Gold star for you, then. :applause:

I saw no point in it, since I knew it was going to be one of the biggest games of 2011.

I'm sure Tha X and Arikado can make you some space in their bunker, if you need to go dark.

I tried to stay in the dark for about a week after the GaneInformer article and caved after that. I think all I need to not be spoiled about is the end and I'll be very, very happy.

I'm a big Garrus fan and his design for 3 looks awesome. Can't wait for my man to join the crew.

OMG I thought this was part of a pre-order bonus for Mass Effect 3 lol. Super cool though.

I think this belongs in the ME3 thread, given what's actually on the ship now. I looked at this earlier and was bummed since it does seem to be a little spoilerish. Still trying hard to go in as blind as possible for ME3 (although if there's an E3 trailer, I doubt I'll be able to help myself).

This was also on that product's page earlier today, but was taken down later in the evening:

"We join the legions of gamers and graphic-story fans who've been anticipating the October release of the new Mass Effect game."

Delayed until Q1 2012. I can't say I didn't expect it.

Nope, not yet. ME2's CE was announced a few months before release, so we probably won't see anything until Q4 of this year.

Nooooo!

I'd rather have them delay it into Q1 2012 than rush it into Q4 2011 and have it need polish. Q4 is a hard release time for games, as we all know.

Q1 2010 release for ME2 didn't hurt it one bit with some of the games that came out in Q4 2009 that would have been competition.

Do I want my ME3 already? Of course, though they need to take their time and make it shine than the buggy mess other titles have been recently (FO: NV, DA2).

I don't mind the delay really. I care more that they make the game as good as possible, and this will let me focus on other fall games like Gears 3 anyway without ME sucking up all my gaming time. :D

Gee sorry, didn't think that link I posted had any spoilers, my bad. As for the delay, thank god, I mean really this year's holiday schedule would be very tight if ME3 came out along with everything else. I kind of like Q1, that's when I have gift cards and money from Christmas lol.

Lol I always get a laugh when people seem happy that we will have LESS games to play. You realize that it is only May, and a score of more delays are bound to follow? I wouldnt' be surprised if the only two AAA titles after Sept are Gears and the latest COD game. Q1 also means we will be waiting for a whole year from now.
