    Does anyone here who has it for Xbox 360 find it kind of dumb how you have to switch discs after every main mission? I don't know if this is how the whole game is but so far i had to switch discs like 5 times already everytime i would do a main mission. I usually don't mind swapping out discs when it's where you swap the disc out because its the second part of the story but this is after every main mission kind of annoying. Also for the fact that since i got the collectors edition its a pain in the ass to take out the discs so i have to just put tissue over it and just lay them on top.

    Which brings up another issue im having and that's just taking the discs out of the collectors edition case. It felt like i was going to break it in half and my thumb was hurting by the time i got the disc out. Anyone who got the collectors edition have this problem too? And maybe a solution to make it easier and safer to take out the discs?

    There are plenty of EU players who are already playing, having gotten around the activation time by using a bypass thing (there's information earlier in this thread).

    My Amazon pre-order is scheduled to arrive on the 8th, too.

    Use a different cd case. Install the game to HDD.*

    I'm sorry but I have to take this moment to take a shot at the 360 fanboys that gave me crap for having a PS3. The PS3 has a digital download or a single disc version. So yeah, how about them apples.

    Yeah but that sucks that the 360 version has so much disc swapping. Better luck next console?

    Are you actually taking forum post seriously or just trolling?

    Far worse imo, here we just sit and say "oh well, fuck whatever I did in the last previous games, it matters not."

    Is just me or it seems that Bioware asked Obsidian to do the endings? I mean it is just like Kotor 2 and Fallout New Vegas...

    The Good
    - 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

    The Bad
    - 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.

    My ratings on the previous games:
    ME1: 9.5/10
    ME2: 9.8/10

    My rating for ME3:
    9/10
    + another to the BAD, less conversation choices, more than 70% of the things shepard says is just auto-dialoged, comapred to maybe 10-20% auto-dialog in ME1,2.

    Mine showed my romance option.


    My main problem wasn't the ending choices so much:
    It's not always going to turn out ok, I get that. That's why the actual 'best' choice, combining all the DNA, kills you. You sacrifice to give peace. But, you can choose killing all*synthetics*and live. Except you don't get to see yourself live. You don't get to see if your crew who mysteriously got on the Normandy ended up in some place you can get them. You don't get to see anything.


    It was exactly opposite from what they said they wanted to happen. They wanted no loose ends and they wanted closure. No, it wasn't going to be a party with everyone alright, but it basically ended on a cliffhanger. I remember them saying if you stayed loyal to Kaiden through 2 you would be rewarded in 3. Being separated forever..maybe! is not a reward bioware...

    You don't build such an amazing world and get people so attached to your story then just not finish it right at the end.

    May I ask who you romanced? Kaidan?

    Yep


    filler...

    Just did a little digging:

    apparently, the game only recognizes ME1 romances, so your third flashback will be Liara,Ashley or Kaidan. Still a major immersion breaker for those who romanced somebody else in ME2

    Most of the fan base is not completely upset. Since you can't really prove that statement anyway, it can easily be ignored. I think I'm done posting on these forums, like legit. Their are to many idiots, who feel their opinions are universal and don't have the good sense to understand what tact is. Their are to many people who are convinced that their feelings are gods owns words and must be shared. Everything is negativitiy and cynicism. I don't care what the endings are, I have yet to beat it but mmo-champion is not gonna spoil another experience for me because kids have a vendetta against a game developer. It's a sour environment.*

    I could be considered fan based. I'm not upset.

    I've played ME1,2 and now 3. Read all the lore and info I could and played all the DLCs.

    This game, to me so far, has covered a lot of bases and touched on a lot of subjects. I haven't finished it yet because I like to gather everything, but I think it wont let me me down. It's delivered so far and keeps me wanting more.

    Anyone who complains or says this isn't what they wanted can easily be tossed into the "can't be pleased bin" that you normally find on the internet or with new launches.

    My biggest complaint is the "From Ashes" DLC. This is entirely too much info to withhold from a player. It should have been included, especially since the mission itself was 30-45 minutes. You're essentially paying for a new companion who kicks ass mon, crazy ganja, jerked soaked lore and super hot outfit for EDI (sweet lord). It should have been included imo.

    All in all.... I'm drawn in like before but even more so. My Shepard is the last hope. And I'll be damned if these assholes win again.

    A super hot outfit for... your metallic android? I mean... is she even a romance option?
