Leaving Earth, when that kid died (and before I knew the Catalyst was going to take his form) I actually shouted "NO!" in horror.
When Grunt died, or I thought he had, that hit me hard too.
Jeff and Liara at the end, trying to escape the Crucible's blast. Liara and Jeff's expressions just hit hard.
And finally at the end with Kaiden putting up Shepard's placard on the memorial wall . . .
I don't normally get torn up by movies, books and video games. But ME3 was effective. I think it was as much the music as the storytelling though.

If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers. -Cracked.com

When Thane died I almost lost it to. I would have to say it is the most heart seizing and wrenching experience since Lost Odyssey. The music had a roll to play in that for sure but the whole saga overall just added this weight to it. It was almost to much at times. You've been with these characters for so long over so many years and theirs a bitter sweetness that permeates through everything because you know this is the end.

The first time ME really made me cry was Virmire, having to choose between Ash and Kaidan. I hated Ash but it was still hard to leave her behind.
In ME2 I can't think of any particular moment that had me crying or close to crying... I think that game was more of a "Well, shit. This is bad. What now?" sort of thing for me. Though everyone survived the suicide mission in my original play through so I have a feeling I would have been crying had some of them died.
ME3, though. Cried SO much playing through that. When we left Earth the first time, when Kaidan nearly died on Mars, when Shepard went to visit Kaidan in the hospital the first time, when Grunt told Shepard to get to the shuttle and he'd hold them off, when Grunt came stumbling out of the caves, when Mordin sacrificed himself for creating the cure ("I am the very model of--*BOOM* *sob*"), when Thane got stabbed by Kai Leng, when Thane died, when you find that quarian on Rannoch who tells you to tell his boy Jonah that his daddy got to see the homeworld (kid lost both his mother and his father in a matter of months - poor thing)... the list goes on and on. One of, if not the, most emotionally powerful video games I've ever played.
So anyone who is still following ME3 know anything about the upcoming Singleplayer DLC??
From what I've seen BSN has died down alot since the EC and Leviathan. I used to rely on it for the latest tweets and bits and pieces of info about the DLC's but nobody really seems to care anymore. Mass Effect 2 was so amazing that I went and bought every DLC for it and then thought, "Well Mass Effect 3 is going to be incredible, may as well stock up on Points"... Horrible decision (Couldn't get a refund either), but alas I have Points enough for 2 SP DLC's and ofc I've already bought Leviathan.
So I'll be playing the next DLC and then I'll be waving goodbye to BioWare forever. So if anyone has any links in regards to the next SP DLC that would be just wonderful! I still like the Mass Effect Universe as a whole, and I really hope the next DLC is something interesting and not just more sadness and reminders of what the game could have been :S Cheeers! (Although everyone might know nothing at this point)

So naturally I have the points for one more SP DLC, and I'm hoping it'll be something interesting, just wondering if anyone here was keeping up with the ME3 world more than I and know something about the next DLC! Tx for replying anyway, bit of googling didn't get me anywhere so perhaps BioWare is keeping it fairly hush.
The lack of information kind of gets me excited because it means they're keeping things under a very tight lid, but I am someone who does like reading about little theories and discovered tid bits, and yea the BSN is lacking on that atm
It's confirmed to be about Omega, and we've seen a poster from that con about a month ago with a pissed-off Aria on it. That's about it so far.
Its cheaper to buy alot of points isnt it?
I bought 1600 and stocked for future DLCs since i like the game and they do make good DLCs.
"Omega will be "double the size" of the largest Mass Effect 3 DLC so far,"
So Omega will be 4GIG.
About half will just be Aria slaughtering everything.
Funny, just a few days ago, I've read an article where EA were praising the PC, saying that a few years ago they wouldn't even look at it, now they say it's leading the market with the freedom it has compared to consoles.
