    It'll formally be revealed tomorrow night at the Spike Video Game Awards, but the blurb on EA's site has already got me hyped.

    Would be pretty dumb to only spend a year on the final game of the trilogy. Assuming of course they're sticking with the trilogy that it was intended, and not stretching it out for several more games, which is a very real possibility.

    I kinda regret not buying Arkham Asylum. I thought it was just one of those "another" Batman franchised game based on a comic. But damn, was I wrong.

    "Ferelden is burning. Striking from the Deep Roads, Darkspawn have begun their destruction of the human race. As Character Name, a Gray Warden, your only hope for saving Ferelden is to rally the civilizations of Thedas and launch one final mission to push back the blight."

    I'll wait for more info before I get all moist over ME3.

    Yeah that might have raised a few eyebrows Matorbogl where it not the plot for pretty much every fantasy title ever.
    Still, while it doesn't have the most originall plot, it's still good. And BioWare pack great dialog.

    Yes. If anything my complaint with the previous game was that there wasn't enough dialog and character interaction with your shipmates. Here's hoping for more dialog and hilarious opportunities to act like an asshole to everyone. FALCON PUNCH

    So.... I guess I shouldn't have been all "HUMAN GLORY ALIEN SCUM" and all that?

    Well **** you. Humanity prevails. Alone.

    In my playthrough I saved the Collector base, so the technology acquired from there should give us an advantage. The Terran Empire shall prevail!

    I thought the reapers didn't have emotions? For them to go straight for Earth Shepard must of royally pissed them off in the last game.

    Won't be buying unless they've changed the shooting. Spraying then reloading is lame.

    What? Have you tried upgrades? I mean the freakin smg can become an AR with that shit. Don't even mention the sniper accuracy of the Vindicator AR.

    Interesting. But I hope grey Earth is just one part of the game, and that we will still have shiny, pretty, colorful space thingies to explore and see like in the first two. Part of why I liked the Mass Effect games, all the colorzzz.

    Reapers destroy other alien worlds, not just Earth.

    I'm betting there are multiple possible endings for ME3

    1. **** other aliens, save Earth and only Earth, and maybe Asaris

    2. Ally with Reapers and **** other aliens

    3. **** all aliens, including Asaris

    Looks awesome!!!
    I just hope that the whole games isn't "OMG EARTH!!! NOOOOOOOO!" Humanity (and even to a lesser degree, Earth) is just a fraction of the galactic civilization. The Reapers are supposed to target ALL life... not just one species. (I get that humanity is special to the reapers)

    I really wan't to see the greater context here. If humanity is just their first stop I'm cool with that, but I really wan't then to drive the point home that once humanity is taken care of the rest of the Galaxy is next.

    It be nice to have the Reapers make a trail thought the galaxy to get to Earth... you know blow some Assari, or Turrian worlds as they pass by so that we know they aren't ignoring everyone else just to get to us.

    COUGH COUGH HACK COUGH (falls over)

    Not a prequel so Im getting it

    I doubt the reapers are pissed off, they seem to hold humanity in high regard as a threat but just keep on doing their thing

    Well I'll be buying this game day 1 thats for sure! I'm hoping to Baby Jesus that M$ does a digital pre-order someday with their games on the system. you download the game data and it releases at 12:01am release day just like PC games. I have all my mass effect games on the xbox...and i do have the PC version of Mass Effect but it looks lousy. anyone know of any mods that change the resolution and such?

    ...I might be that happiest man in the world.

    Also, that British soldier is taking the Kaidan/Jacob position. Calling it now.

    Shep vs a planet full of Reapers?

    Doesn't seem fair.

    They're gonna need more Reapers...



    Also good thing I still have my saves, from my playthrough. Will be interesting to see how it influences the new game.

    I forgot what I did with that base, but I'm pretty sure that I did everything I could in the best interests of humanity.

    All Glory to the United Earth Direc.... er.... Humanity.

    Hah! That's going to come back to bite me in the ass. Especially the thing in ME1 where I <spoiler>.

    As for the Illusive Man, I doubt he'll be a big problem if you pissed him off at the end of ME2. He gives off a major "dude you don't **** with" vibe, but so does Shephard, and with humanity at risk he'll probably be practical enough to put past grudges aside. What happens after the conflict, however...

    Man, I really love the interplay between sequels with this franchise. For all the misgivings I had about the first game, the way my actions affected the second one easily made up for it.

    The likelihood of them taking out the space travel aspect entirely is pretty remote, I'd think (and hope).

    Anyone getting a big Halo 2 vibe from the Earth invasion thing? Same fallen future metropolis kind of look.

    Why would they be working with the Reapers? Since they are all like: "You will be assimilated! Resistance is futile!
