    Its still just wishful thinking. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Bioware _does_ do something similar to that, but it's not because they had planned it all along, it's because Bioware is realizing people fucking hated the ending. They wouldn't have put polls up on the website asking people their opinions on the ending if they hadn't intended it to be the final, canon ending from the beginning.

    The collectors edition came with a box that had http://i44.tinypic.com/14brmnr.jpg on the back.

    Could be related to the "good" end

    The hell? I did every single quest in the game (including some that I'm p. sure require importing a ME1/2 save) and my played time according to the end save game is 18~h.

    What difficulty did you play it on? Having it on a harder difficulty will add quite a few hours to the game.

    Importing a character could save you a few hours aswell, you get an extra 20-30 levels off the bat IIRC.

    I tried to start a thread about the outcomes of the decisions in over the series.

    If you have the answer to any of those questions I'd really appreciate a PM or a post. I tried to PM edgecrusher to see if he would be willing to unlock the thread, but he has yet to respond.

    I played my first playthrough on normal and I spent a bit over 30 hours playing it. About 20-30 hours seems to be the most common finishing time. I scanned all the planets and did all the quests I could. I think I only had about 5ish quests unfinished when I started the final part of the game.

    Is it just me or does mass effect 3 feel like it has less replay value than mass effect 2? I dont know what it was, but mass effect 2 just seemed to have more content, before the dlc's, and a better replay value.

    I felt like the side quests, especially the loyalty missions, were longer in ME2.

    But then again I've spent over 20 hours playing multiplayer with my friends in ME3, which is something I can't say about ME2.

    That depends, ME2 had very few variables that it imported from ME1. They did make some minor impact but not enough to justify multiple replays. And it was pretty linear overall. Plus the combat was mostly just hiding behind a cover and shooting stuff or using abilities on them and then shooting them:P However the endings varied greatly so I could see people wanting to replay it for the different outcomes.

    As for ME3, I think it is more replay value than ME2. The endings are limited and such but the rest of the game isn't very linear at all and varies greatly depending on the decisions you made in previous games. Almost every mission can have a different outcome. And the gameplay is much better too. Weapons and styles are highly customizable with armor choices adding much more to it than in ME2.

    Question about the ability "Fortification." It says you can purge it to increase melee damage, and I assumed it purged similarly to Tech Armor. But, I don't seem to get an animation that makes it obvious my armor was purged. With Fortification on, there are like electrical currents going through my armor, and when I purge it, they just disappear. Am I missing something?

    The blue ending this is the ending that shows you as a paragon you become one with the reapers and watch over all life synthetic and organic forever yes you are no longer a human your body is destroyed but still it fits the idea of a true paragon.

    red you destroy all synthetic life this shows the renegade you I want to live at all costs kill the reapers to hell with edi, geth robots are not real living things me first you somewhere down the line.

    the green ending shep gives up his/her own life to save every one the reapers the geth edi every one. granted by the time you make this choice most are all ready dead but not all HOPE for every one alive is left. i think this is the good ending if you don't do any of the Mutli-player.

    now what most of you don't seem to know Mass effect ment something mankind found the mess releay and with it got a jump start in to space so all 3 endings show the destruction of the relays ( the end of mass effect ) the conclusion. space travel was still posable with out them just took longer as in we join our spot in the galiaxy no longer needing the training weels of the past. shown by the guy telling the kid a story all of space is your to find out.

    what people seem to want is to see the smaller story of what i did to each person and that is for you to decide not them.

    ^ You still want to spoiler tag that or you might get infracted. Some people have NOT finished the game yet but they actively visit the thread.. You don't want to ruin it for them, now do you?

    Also I'm absolutely in love with the soundtrack, especially the songs "I Was Lost Without You" (the song that plays during romance scenes) and "I'm Proud of You". And naturally the main theme. I just keep pressing repeat for these songs, just wow. Here's a playlist on YouTube that has all the OST tracks if anyone wants to listen to them: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...B&feature=plcp
