MP is soooo fun. But you know it throws me off when team mates are wearing silver/blue armor when we're fighting geth. I've wasted a handful of overloads from turning the corner, seeing my team mate, and instinctively overloading them!

What? Is it really a spoiler to bitch that there's a shitty shoehorned-in villain?

(Also, would it REALLY inconvenience Shepard to follow Rule #2 - Double Tap)


At least we know he follows rule one since he does cardio.

I don't even read or have the ME comics or books so it's news to me who this new villain is with no introduction in the video game series. I thought perhaps the Illusive Man used shepard's DNA to make a evil shep that was a ninja but looks like that's a no when i finished the mission.

This is not a spoiler at least I don't think so but I found this on the ME wiki last night when looking at war assets. It gives me some hope for the ending.

I do not know if this a rumor or legit since it from 4chan but Bioware did say to hold ...
If it is true than it goes against what was revealed here: http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/355/index/9999272/1

Specifically... (to quote a non-OBer friend)
Somebody said:
...there where production notes that showed that they were going for a Matrix ending, but the pics got pulled for copy right reasons (i saw them before they got pulled)


Now, I'll admit that BioWare may have lied to the guy who made that app, he's in on it, or this is just a bunch of bullshit.

Related is this article from Forbes on the endings of Mass Effect 3 (yes, THE Forbes) http://...forbes.com/...nicious-myth-of-gamer-entitlement/ which ends with this bit:
Erik Kain said:
To be fair, I do worry that an alternative-ending-DLC that was not free might be perceived by some as the plan all along – a deliberately unsatisfying (and possibly unreal) ending followed by the “real” ending a few months later for another $10. Maybe not a horrible idea on its face, but with the rest of the tumult and controversy surrounding the game – probably a pretty terrible idea.
And he's spot on. If they do charge for a DLC with a new ending instead of just uploading it for free (which they could do, even on XBox360 via the EAOnline Pass thingie which was included in ME3) the outcry will be HUGE and the BioWare namebrand wouldn't be likely to recover from it...

Mass Effect 3 'N7 Challenge' this weekend, unlocks bonus weapons

http://...shacknews.com/...-this-weekend-for-mass-effect-3

Somebody said:

Electronic Arts is boasting 1800 years of multiplayer gameplay time in Mass Effect 3 so far. And that number is likely to go up even further thanks to a new promotion starting this weekend. Electronic Arts has announced the "N7 Challenge Weekend," starting today at 5PM PDT and going through Monday at 5AM PDT. The challenge will offer PC and Xbox 360 players some rewards from "Operation: Goliath":

To receive the unlocks, "any player who is part of a squad that beats the Reaper faction on Silver difficulty or better will unlock one Commendation Pack." So long as one member of a squad is extracted at the end of the mission, all squad members will receive the reward. "Each player can earn a maximum of one pack and each pack contains a random N7 Arsenal Weapon: (1) N7 Crusader Shotgun, (2) N7 Eagle Pistol, (3) N7 Hurricane SMG and (4) N7 Valiant Sniper Rifle."

Additionally, the community is being encouraged to kill as many brutes as possible. "If the multiplayer community kills a combined 1 MILLION brutes within the hours of the challenge, ALL players will receive a Victory Pack as a reward."

The only stipulation to the rewards is that they will unlock on Tuesday, March 20, at 5PM PDT, and you must claim them within seven days or lose them with no chance of restoration. Players must also have data tracking "on." If it is off, participation cannot be charted and rewards will not be given.

I'm down with that but then again my N7 rank is 101. I should level up some of my guys though since i did promote some of them. Good thing I've been buying packs to update weapons and mods.

OK, finished the game. Also, you pretty much can't convince me that EA didn't deliberately plan to release a "fake" ending with the game and a "real" ending that costs money after release.


Alternately, you pretty much can't convince me that they deliberately planned to release a "real" ending after the fact.

It's such a bad idea that you'd think Lucas was involved.

I've been playing the ever living shit out of the multiplayer, to the point where I probably have more hours in there than I do the actual story mode. I haven't touched a silver or gold mission yet, since I'm still getting my ass kicked in Bronze every so often. I've been buying Spectre packs with my credits (fuck paying for shit), but I can't for the life of my manage to get a Krogan Soldier. I have the Sentinel, which is cool, but not the same. Not entirely sure I like the randomness of the packs.

You may be more likely to get a Krogan soldier by buying three veteran packs (or two of the next one up) with your credits instead of Spectre packs.

Speaking of buying multiple packs with the same amount of credits, I spent a few days buying only Recruit packs and now have Avenger and Katana Mk Xs. Even those basic weapons can do respectable damage--and have dramatically reduced weight--at that level. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't have some mid-level uncommon or rare guns that they really enjoy. The other advantage of this is that you'll get a good smattering of mods and a crapload of consumables.

Holy shit, Fiver and I just made it through a multiplayer match with just the two of us. Full extraction, though it took me using a Medigel with both us down around the 5 second mark. Damn Pyros, Hunters, and a Prime right on our ass.

I honestly rather buy the Veteran Premium since you can get more rares in it. It's been worth it for me so far since I've pulled a M-98 Widow 1, M-27 Scimitar V, Asari Adept, M-29 Incisor VI, Phaeston IV, M-12 Raptor IV, SMG Scope III, M-25 Hornet II, M-12 Locust,Asari Vanguard, and my most wanted item Medi-Gel Capacity +1

I say buy recruit to build up your basic weapons and mods, then Veteran, and finally Spectre.

I hope I can build up my N7 Valiant since now that I have a Level 5 sniper barrel mod to go with it; killing Cerberus, Geth, and Reapers has become a little easier.

I wouldn't recommend buying actual points since there is a big bug where stuff can reset and disappear for good right now but bioware is working on a fix

Too bad I couldn't play with you guys as Infiltrator as I spot those Geth hunters when they're coming for you. What map and level did you play (Bronze, Silver, and or Gold)

I wonder how many more OB people would be playing on PC if this had come out on Steam though.

Next weekend they're going to have a Promote Event where you promote your multiplayer characters to single player which show up under the War Asset "N7 Special Ops Team" in Single Player.

Nearly Done with the game just have to do Prioity: Earth which might happen tomorrow evening if I can level some more multiplayer to boost my war assets to 8k.

It was Bronze, and we were at the communication station. I was using a level 20 Infiltrator, but so many geth meant I'd have to back down to using my heavy pistol a lot. Didn't help that I have not been getting Sniper rifles or heavy pistols in the packs I buy, so both are level 1s. But damnit, we won!

So I'm not reading this thread anymore until I finish my first run because I've heard about how many people are unhappy with, pissed about, and/or disappointed by the ending of ME3, but,***SPOILER WARNING*** these dream sequences?

I'm guessing it's Reaper indoctrination. No idea if it's true, but I want my guess on the record.

And Shepard has to choose about sacrificing him/herself or something at the end because of it.

I sincerely hope I'm way, WAY off, because I've never enjoyed that kind of fiction: Oh, that awesome hero that you're so sure is being such a Hero? Yeah, actually working for the Bad Guys against their knowledge. WooooWWWWooooo.

Seriously bored of that twist. Seriously stupid idea for such a time and labor-intesive epic production.

You know, assuming I'm on the right track.****END SPOILERS***

I've brought this up too jokingly and hope it isn't the case. But Shepard does have a way with words and it wouldn't be too far off if true. =/
