I'm most angry about the people raging over every single new announcement about this game, and the people spouting shit like OMG THE PROTHEAN IS ESSENTIAL TO THE STORYLINE

Its probably not but it would be pretty cool in-game
just a shame we have to pay more for the assumed awsomeness

If Me3 is shit. There wont be enough bandwidth in the universe to contain what I'm going to say.

Edit: Though I am interested in what Bioware voting threads you are talking about.

Your opinion will probably be the least important of anyone on this website in regards to ME3 because you've been completely insufferable throughout the whole process.

Did you ever think that maybe, just maybe, the fans are willing to deal with the faults to enjoy what's good about the games, rather than them being mindless idiots? Because I doubt it. People like you NEVER try and see it from the other side.

Seriously, just give up. The people that will enjoy the game will enjoy the game and you can't do anything about it, and they aren't worse people for it.

I'd rather talk to them than to a, as someone pointed out, fanatic like you.

Yes.

You're a fanatic.

You're fanatically against Bioware. To a sickening degree. I've never seen anyone cheer on Bioware in any way comparable to the way you talk about Bioware's fans.

Seriously, grow the fuck up and move on with your damn life. Stop being so worried about what other people enjoy. It's a 100% fruitless endeavor.

Of course a fanboy would equate reasonable criticism with "Fanaticsm". Good job, you just keep proving my point. Instead of actually defending your Massah. you come in here, frothing at the mouth just to make your silly and useless point: You can't make people not buy games.

Well, con-fucking-gratulations. You have just come to same realization as every-other-person on the Earth.

Anyone who's only defense can be summed up with:But it's Bioware. Should be purged from this planet.

*tries to claim he's not a fanatic*

*claims anyone who likes Bioware even a little is a fanboy that will defend everything they do*

*claims they should be purged from the planet*

Are you even paying attention to what you're writing?

Get some help. You're way too obsessed. It's unhealthy.

Zeel:
Look at the no's. Honestly I got so much slack for calling you guys fanboys, but am I wrong? You're telling me NOT ONE THING IN MASS EFFECT 3 HAS BEEN SOMETHING YOU DISAGREED WITH?

This. BY ITS VERY DEFINITION MAKES YOU A FANBOY ZEALOT FUNDY.

Oh Zeel. Your foaming at the mouth tirades are fast becoming the most entertaining thing on these forums. :)

I don't know, man. I miss EternalNothingness. Still waiting for that guy's grand finale.

I personally thought the worst thing in the demo was captain Anderson's running animations. That and how the squadmate's movements just looked so... robotic in the earlier trailers.

Zeel:

I'm getting sick of your holier than thou attitude towards basically everyone who likes the games. Maybe it's time for you to stop frothing at the mouth and stop making your silly and useless argument that anyone who disagrees with you is a fanboy, because you need to realize that you can't make people not buy games by posting on the Escapist about it.

Why does the Soldier Class suck so hard now?

It used to be the Soldier class what the go to for Getting all the weapon types and maining heavy armor, now its been reduced to the most shitastic thing ever, if you even think about playing a human soldier in multi, you better get used to being dead half the fucking time.

Their Def bonus are atrocious, their skills pathetic, concussion blast is pretty cool when it actually hits something, but there are skills that are better.

The worst part is that since now any character can carry any weapon, the Soldier has become the HARDCORE GET YOUR ASS HANDED TO YOU CLASS. Its unforgiving to play a human soldier, at least the krogan gets a monstrous Meelee and def bonus from fortification, but the Human, is fucking shit. I hope they get another weapon and armor buff in the main game, because not being able to use time dilation via adrenaline rush makes them the shittiest class all around.

Soldiers get Frag Grenades, which is easily one of the best abilities if not the best. That coupled with Adrenaline Rush make you an absolute killing machine. The last rank of Adrenaline Rush also gives a passive 50% shield increase. Honestly though, the assault rifle should have been kept a soldier only weapon.

I've made up a new forum game. Without using any "find posts by user X" functions such as checking his profile - try to find threads you're 100% certain Zeel has raged and/or insulted someone in.

If you pick one and he HASN'T been in there, the counter starts over. I'm going strong at four atm!

I'm happy that I'll never see Ashley once in ME3, so her new model doesn't bug me in the slightest. However, anything would beat having to look at Miranda's ugly mug again.

OH NOES HE'S GONNA CALL ME A FANBOY BECAUSE I ENJOY A GAME MADE BY BIOWARE

SOMEBODY SAVE ME

My gripe is that Ashley is back in the first place. She was a total bitch to you in ME2 and she was highly unlikable in the first. Other than that though when the 6th comes my life is gone.

Goddamnit, I picked the "Mass Effect fans rip book to shreds" news story and he hadn't been in there to call anyone a rampaging fanboy.

Oh well, four in a row wasn't bad.

And yeah, careful. You're not allowed to enjoy things Our Great Leader Comrade Chairman Zeel does not enjoy. It's called free will and it's overrated.

Zydrate:
Of all things, I don't like the spike in difficulty. I play games for story and experience, not to get my ass kicked.

I quite enjoyed the extra challenge but I imagine there'll be an easy mode for those who just want to enjoy it for the story - I think they said that Normal in ME3 was the same as Hardcore from ME2.

Not really, in all honesty. The demo seemed perfectly playable to me, and nothing about the story has alarm bells ringing.

You have to understand, story is normally my primary concern when it comes to games. I love the ME series for its story first and foremost; the fact that I enjoy the gameplay is just a pleasant bonus.

So yeah, nothing too upsetting here. James Vega doesn't concern me too much, at worst he'll be nondescript like Jacob. The showdown has me interested, the return of old characters has me excited, and I find the story-linked multiplayer an intriguing concept; awesome if it works out, ignored if it doesn't.

So yeah. All in all, pretty stoked for two weeks to hurry up and get out of the way.

jibjab963:

Wait. You thought the single player demo for ME3 was hard?

Well difficulty is subjective but, I will say in ME2 having never played a cover based shooting game I played on the hardest difficulty and I didn't fined it that hard. So I am all for an increase in difficulty.

well the Ai isnt a dumb bag of bricks that screams ENEMIES EVERYWHERE anymore, thats for sure.

Fuckers are working together to kill your characters, flanking manuvres, cover fire, tactical formations. It took me a while to leanr how to deal with each group of enemies and work together with other people to counter their advances.

To be fair I didn't find my companion AI to be that much better. I remember taking I think Kasumi and Grunt all the time. Kasumi because she couldn't be shot half the time and Grunt because he didn't die.

Zeel:

3) Now you're on dangerous territory my friend. Fanatic? FANATIC? I don't ever want to be compared to these holy bioware knights. THey exercise little thought and their completely content with Bioware reaming them.

And there I was thinking I only loved Mass Effect because it was a great game that made me feel awesome. Silly me, eh...

i plan to play it but i'm not sure about the difficulty stuff since i am on veteran so i hope i don't have to change it or hit a brickwall

I believe you are right

Don't like the new way Tech Armor works. It makes me concerned for the future viability of my old ME2 Sentinels.

I was almost tempted to say "don't feed the troll", but he's just so fun when he's mad.

ps. Looking forward to the future adventures of Fwappy :D

My main complaints are thus:

1: The difficulty of getting a hold of a Collectors Edition that ISN'T already pre-ordered. DAMN THIS GAME FOR BEING SO POPULAR! Thankfully, I managed to last-minute pre-order one at Best Buy.

2: The fact that in multiplayer, getting a new character, a new gun, or an upgrade for a gun you already have is extremely hit-or-miss: You usually get either an upgrade for a class and race you already have, or one of the starting guns. But, I've heard that the retail version of multiplayer is going to have character and weapon packs, at least supposedly. If thats the case, awesome!

3: Not all classes in multiplayer were created equal. Yes, I know, some are very specialized, but some are clearly better than others. Not REALLY a bad thing, but for me, its just not fun playing as anything other than my Level 20 Quarian Engineer. Though, part of that is due to the fact that, well, shes a Quarian.

4: The changes of some weapons. Very minor complaint, don't get me wrong, but I remember the Mattock being more powerful, and a little more accurate. On the other hand, I also remember the Revenant being less accurate and more powerful. Still pretty damn fun to use one or the other though.

And lastly, 5: The fact that it hasn't come out yet. I seriously want to play this, and I want to play it NOW. March 6th can not come soon enough even if it was suddenly March 6th this very second, and I had the game in my hands at this very moment. Well, actually come to think of it, that might be soon enough, but you understand my anticipation and excitement regardless.

It's true, he's like our own little pet beehive. We poke him and the bees fly out and try and sting us and call us fanboys.

Little to they realize they have no stingers and we don't give a fuck what they think.

Haha. Silly bees.

March 6, 2012: 1. Mass Effect 3 is released. 2. Zeel goes ballistic. Mark your calender!

Wierdguy:
pancakes vs waffles

Pancakes! Death to the square pancakes, they are the false ones, full of lies and untruths! They are the bringers of all ills and shall be destroyed by the power of the pure pancake!

Forgot where I was going with that.

Oh well I typed it out too late to delete it.

I have not played the demo but have seen it played. it makes me wonder how my sniper will play. It seems to have a focus on mid to close range combat. That may or may not be a negative change from ME2.

I fear I cannot say much until either I play the full game or at least watch a lets play of it. But I am curious of Ashley's new look and I wonder what other changes/ new characters will be less than stellar. All I need is wrex, tali, and garrus and I am set ( liara is a nice bonus).

It would be a kick in the teeth if the crew from ME1 and ME2 were not able to join you.

I fear I cannot claim any major issues at this time.

@Mass Effect 3 Rage!!!!

-'Is there anything that changed in ME3 that you don't like?'-

I voted yes, and here is why.

I am am absolutely insulted that they put the number 3 in the title. Who the hell do they think they are to add such crap! Way to jump on the band wagon of other titles released with the same number. I was a fan of the other games because it didn't have the number three in the title. I was positive that the lore had no number three in it, they even went so far as to flat out tell you that the Mass Effect series was either numberless, or had a two in it... now they up and crowbar in a number three there?!?! Way to break cannon. Bioware sucks now. Fuck you EA.

Remember when the games were great, and they didn't have the number three in the title? Those were the golden days, now it's all three shit.

Well, the dislikes of the demo, from Ashley's new look and the slightly dodgy animations, have already been covered, so I'll give something I liked, and how I might dislike it.

I liked how the guilt and stress of Shepard's career is reflected when he tries to help a young kid escape, and when you look back it was a figment of your imagination. Then, when you're about to leave, the hallucinations return to haunt you as take off. It's a nice bit of symbolism and fragmentation of reality that adds an aspect of character building, even if it's a mandatory bit that every shepard regardless of personality goes through. However, the blade is double-edged. If they follow this up with some more psychological hopelessness that interferes with reality and needs to be dealt with somehow that isn't pretentious, then it's the bit that could turn this from a good game into a great game. If it's just something they put in there to have a shocking moment, then it's going to be a stupidly out of place scene that we'd rather hadn't been thought up. I'm hoping that the former is the case, because Shepard has come across rather like Batman in the sense that both are completely competent and can handle anything thrown at them with nothing ever shaking them. Some sense of vulnerability and emotional weight would be a welcome addition.

ME3 Gripes:

-Origin Exclusive. I only buy PC games on Steam, and I don't accept the practice of publishers like EA forcing me to make an account with them just to play their single-player game.

-I don't mind so much that ME 2 turned the series from an "RPG" into a shooter, but the series lost me by changing the tone to "action blockbuster", by the end of ME 2 I felt it was about as sci fi as Michael Bay's Transformers, and everything that's been released and leaked about ME 3 confirms this shift. For me the first Mass Effect was a decent imitation of KoTOR, and the revelations about protheans and reapers were fun. But by the end of ME 2, I realized that they had already wrapped things up to my satisfaction in ME 1. The only thing left is to have some mega battle, but there are no character arcs or plot mysteries left that I really care about - and after the boring answers about the collectors and omega-4 relay, I don't trust EA to wrap up mysteries in a satisfying way anyway.

my main problem is You gotta come down here with an attitude, actin' all big and bad I could've been at a barbecue! But I ain't mad removed some stuff that wasn't relevant

I'm just going to come out and say it: ME1 was the best ME. The combat was kind of weird at first, but, I liked the fact that you had to train in crap to be good at it - not every class was a crack shot, unless you put points into it. Also, there were so many skills, it made you want to play through the game a few times to max your skills out. I liked the different classes of armor, manufacturers of guns, etc. It was cool, and I liked all of the detail it added into the game. Flavor text is sweet.

I like the fact that they're bringing back some of the inventory from ME1 that they gutted in ME2, but, I don't feel like they did enough. Yes, I know we don't get to screw around with the inventory in the SP demo, but, if it is anything like the MP inventory, I'd like more. I was really, really disappointed with the lack of a true inventory in ME2.

Otherwise, I like some the design ideas. I like the idea of allowing every class to carry any weapon, but some classes (soldier) can carry more weapons/heavier weapons than other classes (adept). I'd prefer weapon skill trees, but this is a pretty good idea as well.

Oh, heavy melee is great. I think it was a really good design decision. Makes your character feel a lot more flexible in combat.

Zeel:
2) Don't even know why you think I care about the people in the middle. As far as I'm concerned, anyone unwilling or unable to make up their minds are pussies. Full stop.

There's a difference between not being able to make up one's mind and one being open to faults and still enjoying the games. The idea that someone must either be a fanboy or hate the series is like saying somebody must either be a democratic extremist or a republican extremist. There is a middle ground, in fact that's where upwards of 90% of people are.

Do I like the game? Yes.

Would you call me a fanboy? Most likely, as I even call myself that sometimes.

Do I think the Mass Effect games are perfect? No.

1. Shepard's face is almost always lacking emotion in normal dialogues.
2. You can always tell when there will be a fight due to the appearance of chest high walls.
3. Several of the characters are rather 2-dimensional.
4. Friendly AI has it's moments that annoy me. Such as when they randomly charge 5 enemies.
I could continue this list for quite a while.

I have pointed out faults in the games, therefore I don't think the game is perfect.
I also pre-ordered the Collector's Edition because it is one of my favorite series.

I am the middle-man. I like the series, but I don't think it's perfect. I don't know if you care about me. But you can't deny I exist.

jibjab963:
First off this is not about the launch day release of DLC for Mass Effect 3, this is so I can voice my own gripes, and allow you to as well, with what I have seen and played of Mass Effect 3. My first problem is probably something that is just due to the demo but it doesn't feel like you got much say in what was going on. I know that some of you might think that it is because of what kind of play setting I was on, but I played on both Story and the RPG one and there wasn't really a difference. And for my secondly, and this only occurred once, was a lag in the Multiplayer on the Urban Ghetto map which caused me to fly up in the air, fall back down, die on impact, and then respawn while falling under the map to where I could apparently kill people when I couldn't see anything. Finally is Ashely's new look. I know most people don't care but Bioware or EA or whoever is to blame just made her look like a hoe. When I seen it I was just "Nu >:C" Besides these little things everything else is awesome and I can't wait until the 6th.

I think it is just the fact that it was a demo, I'm sure they'll give you a better feel for things (hopefully) in the full game. Your second problem is just some glitch that will hopefully be fixed, nothing like that ever happened to me so it isn't too big of an issue. Thirdly I don't mind Ashley's new look, some chicks get slutty, it just happens man, it time to rejoice not be upset that the prim and proper (bitch) woman has changed.

I voted no. There are a few minor issues but I don't really care about them enough. I haven't seen anything that has changed and that I really don't like.

Ashley disliking Toombs dislikes Ashley.

Also worried about Prothean, but not disliking.

Extremely worried about [bodied]EDI though.

Main complaints:
-Fluctuating overall quality of dialogue(sometimes its good...sometimes its really bad)
-Reaper villainous 'decay'(our humanely incomprehensible Machiavellian plan of dominating the galaxy is landing on earth and shooting red lasers so things go BOOM!)
-Still feels clunky/stilted compared to Gears of War
-Still too cover-reliant in terms of combat
-RPG elements are threadbare(I know its a demo, so this might expand in the future)
-Multiplayer feels somewhat lackluster(was hoping more diverse and interesting objectives. Feels too cookie cutter for a horde mode)
-Ashley's character design looks eh....too unprofessional? She looks mocked up for some beauty pageant or a date, what was wrong with the last design?
-Prothean DLC

I'll see what others say about the game before I purchase. Still way too apprehensive.

Sewa_Yunga:
Hold on a second!

I didn't play the demo yet and I don't plan on doing so.
But I do remember that woman in blue Armor from one of the trailers... Don't tell me this is supposed to be Ash?

yes haha lol. You should play the demo, it will save you 60 bucks
