Can I be bothered going to the midnight release, or will I just get it Friday afternoon...
As far as the DLC is concerned...they could have made it be the Super Duper Deluxe Downloadable Edition that was +$10 and included the Prometheans...
Except this way you can can CHOOSE if you want it or not without having to pretend like buying a "Limited" edition download copy of the game makes any sense when all they have to do is turn off the download to make it "limited"
To be honest get rid of the Collector's editions and the Deluxe editions and just make a list of options you can buy on start. That's all it is anyways and I've yet to see any "Collector's Box" mean dick after the fact unless it was sealed with a working code inside. Game development is expensive and to be honest if they can milk a little extra money from the people who want it all to subsidize a better game then more power to them. Not to mention it allows me to throw them an extra dollar for a game that kicks so much ass.
Haters are gonna hate
Getting ready to pick it up this evening really excited to play it really hoping they didnt bork it up.
And this is the reason I don't bother with the user scores. But sure, ladies and gentlemen. Take your time to click on the users that have downvoted mass effect 3 anb behold, they have less than 2 reviews 99 % of them. Atleast the professional game reviewers aren't blind fanboys with "trolololol" agendas and that's why I put more weight to the reviewer score.
And no matter what the user score is, it doesn't affect my gaming experience. And you who said that "EA loses a lot of money QQ QQ QQ if they don't stop making origin exclusive games" then why the hell did battlefield 3 sell more than 8 million during the first month? (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlef...es_and_revenue ). And besides, I have never had any problems with origin and I bet most of the "problems" are blind fanboy hate and made-up excuses.
Oh and anyone can make 1000 e-mails and spam a metascore down. Even manually. There aren't even that many votes.
The bonus mission took me like an hour (including a lot of dialoge before, durring, and after.) Its worth the 10$ if you really care about the game. It doesn't make a difference towards the story. Just another character to help against the Reapers.*
Also, I'm not feeling the lack of choices in dialoge. Feels the same to me.*
Loving it so far.
Looks like a cool game, never really played 1 or 2
The only complaints I have with ME3 is that I *had to switch discs like 2 or 3 times and that I don't have a small army of squadmates... Yesterday I had said to myself that I was only going to play for like an hour or so, next thing I knew it as 1 am and 12 hours had passed.

Moving off of that subject though, my issues with ME3 is that it just seems watered down compared to the other two. I liked Mass Effect, and the second one didn't exactly meet my expectations, but I still enjoyed it. The third one just moved even further away from the first game in terms of gameplay and RPG elements. What happened to the customization that we had in ME1? I even kept my expectations low but I still can't help but be disappointed with it. Compared to the first one, and even to the second one by a lesser extent, it just seems like a generic shooter now and less of an RPG. But that's just me.
I deal with reviewers the same way I deal with doctors and mechanics. I find a few I trust, agree with, and like, and pay attention to them.
I'm enjoying the game so far. I like that you seem to get a lot of your squad mates very quickly this time around. Also, it seems everyone has noticed how much time Garrus spends calibrating things :P.
Reality is nothing; Perception is everything.

They even made Conrad apologise for accusing you of pointing a gun in his face in ME2 (medium spoilers)
Also, needs more reapers (no spoilers in pic) *http://i.imgur.com/xnbMS.jpg

A little off topic: what was so wrong with Dragon Age 2? I thought it was pretty fun. Not my favorite, but fun nonetheless.*
My personal review of the game, some spoilers in there are marked.
- Combat system improved
- Weapon customization was much needed
- The mix between ME1 RPG + ME2 Action systems is a good one
- The world around you feels more "alive", specially in the Citadel
- Interaction between your squadmates is very well done
- The length of the game is bigger than ME2, same as ME1
- Multiplayer is very addicting and provide some tough challenges
- There are some WTF plotholes through the Endings
- Harbinger only makes a very brief appearence, which is disappointing
- The dream sequences with the Kid aren't needed, or at least it should be cutscenes instead of boring gameplay
- Many squadmates only have two or three major conversations through the game, in between these, they get "Zaeeded"
- That blue wall in the Normandy's CIC is annoying as hell
Still, ME3 is a great game, although i can see why some people are calling the weakest of the trilogy, mainly because of some plotholes and the endings, but overall is a great experience.

Hah, try and prevent me from saving before final decision eh?
