Found out last night that I had deleted my ME2 save from PS3!!! WTF!? I have no idea why I did that as I knew you'd need it for ME3, I had all members alive as well! HAD ONE!!

I wonder if this will have a little prologue like 2 did so you can make some choices, I don't think you can import ME2 saves onto PS3, I know you can do it with PC and XBOX 360 but think I am screwed for PS3 :(

Anyone know if it's at all possible, seems such a waste doing so well only to be "vanilla" in ME3

So does anyone know if it's possible to copy a ME2 file onto PS3????

If it's like Xbox, no it's not.

They lock your save with a unique ID, so when you copy saves, it won't work as they have a different ID.

It's possible to do so on XBOX and PC, you just don't get achievements for that specific game BUT I am on PS3 and even if that were the case, I don't want to scam trophies, I just want to be able to continue the story with the Paragon ending and all squad memebers alive.

Fucks sake, why did I delete the file, damn 60GB original PS3 and your small HDD!

Been playing for about 3 hours and I have only one word to describe it so far. Amazing.

The only downside so far is

Isn't that how they games have been all along? I've played ME1 on my Xbox, but it was too long ago to actually remember it. I'm currently playing ME2 and it's piss-easy... ;)

You can always up the difficulty level. I find it not too bad myself and I have only died a couple of times.

I died with that gun turret thing.

not found enough time to play this yet. The Mrs is going away this weekend though so will be all over that shit tonight, can't wait. Just got to get through the working day.

On the difficulty level, I am seriously crap at games and managed to get through ME2 without much hassle, so it's not too surprising that this one isn't rock hard.

Few hours into it, dissappointed with the auto dialogue, my Shepard will be saying line after line of things I don't tell him to, I want to complete this trilogy with my shepard not Bioware's, the Citadel and the normandy are letdowns as well, too dark, confined, nothing much to do. On the plus side the combat is great, but thats not what I bought it for.

I've just done the first few missions and it's a quality game, as were the 1st 2!. Combat is as brilliant as it always has been, if anything it's improved (I'm only playing on hardcore.) My favourite improvement thus far is that the actual shooting aspect of the game seems to be much tighter in terms of accuracy- probably as a result of multi player! The only noticeable downside's are the lip syncing whenever cut scenes /conversations come into play (It's just poorly done compared to Skyrim or Deus Ex) and the graphical detail on characters armour compared to their faces. As I said though great game and I'm not disappointed!

Not much interaction with people in the wandering sections, just people who are plot involved, sure there were more random NPCs in the last one.

This worth getting or not, I played the demo and thought it was okay but didn't strike me as anything special. Everyone is saying positive things and negative so don't know what to do...I've played the first and second and to be honest preferred the first one simply because it felt more like a rpg and the second felt more like a third person shooter, then the third one feels like they're trying to go the uncharted and the cinematic route but it just doesn't feel right..

Plus pretty pissed off with all this pre-order to get unlockable content shite, It's bullshit.

I only played the second one and while it was a polished game it was barely a RPG.
Played it up to half a game, didn't really care about the characters or developments, found almost no initiative to develop my character and simply gave up. This one is probably even less of a RPG and more of a third person bang bang duck duck.

I think the criticism about it not being a RPG is right. It isn't there are some RPG-elements in it, but basically I'd rather say it's an action-adventure. What I don't get is the criticism about the characters and the story. I'm currently playing ME2 after playing the first one ages ago on my Xbox, and I have to say the story is the thing that's keeping me going. The fights are not really a challenge, but they don't have to be in my view, because to me it feels like I'm really on that quest with Sheppard. You always have that ultimate goal in front of you, yet you are able to do other stuff in between, that's not really relevant to the main story, but helps you making it easier in the end. You also have quests for every single team-member that helps you to get to know them better. You learn about their past and about stuff what is going on in their lives. Mass Effect does that better in my view than many "real" RPGs including Skyrim. Where everyone is a twat and I couldn't care less why they are and what they're thinking. I've done Jack's mission in Mass Effect where you go to the research station or whatever it is where she was kept as a kid. And it has made me sympathise with her and it explains why she is the way she is. That's more impressive than all the characters in Skyrim put together...


And I did something pretty stupid today in terms of Mass Effect 3. Bought the DVD-version of Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning and didn't realise that it uses Origin. I thought it runs on Steam, because it's available on there as well. I didn't want to install Origin, but now I have to and that will lead to me buying Mass Effect 3 once I've finished the second one. Initially, I wanted to wait until it's available on Steam or until it is cheaper. Impossible, now that I have installed Origin... ;)

Pretty pissed off at Bioware really, they've turned their back on their fans to suit the masses who just want to shoot things, what little choices you get to make feel irrelavant, the citadel is awful, just doesnt feel like mass effect, only 4 hours in but I can't see it changing.

Is my only criticism about the game. Its very streamlined, but I accepted the fact. They slowly did this with ME2, but with ME3 they even streamlined the conversations which pissed me off. But i stuck with it, and just now ive completed ME3 (dont worry I wont spoil).

The story pretty much made me play through this game despite its problems (which I overcame).

Just like to say its one of the best endings Ive seen in gaming. There are alot of fan boys at the moment apparently who hates the ending. God knows why. Maybe because they suddenly appealed to the more causal gamers, they cant handle a more mature ending then what they use to? I dunno.

Amazing game. Just need to replay it now as the renegade shepard.

I will accept absolutely no criticism of Bioware and their games. Seriously though, I'm loving this. Only played a few hours but it's improved subtly and the graphics are immense. I see what people mean when they say it's barely an RPG, but it never really was. It's an action-rpg with emphasis on the story. The way they've weaved five years worth of play into this one story is incredible. Fair to say I'm enjoying this more than I did the superb Skyrim.

I'm about eight hours into this, and I'm totally sucked in. As I have a PS3, I've only previously played ME2, and while I overall loved that game, I was semi-disappointed that the decisions I made throughout the game didn't have a more tangible effect on the story (no pun intended) and more consequences for the characters than they did. This is where I wished I could play ME1, to see if it was any different in that respect, as even with regards to ME2, that was accused of being dumbed down from ME1.

However, I feel this have already been improved upon in ME3 in the relatively short time I've been playing it. Your decisions seem to affect the outcome of immediate events pretty directly (and at times shockingly), not to mention the long term consequences that I'm sure they'll have on the story. In one particular mission I've played, it makes it pretty clear at the start that you'll have a big decision to make, so as you're playing through the mission you get time to think about it, and at one point even get a chance to knock it on the head, but the time comes when you have a choice to make and the effect it has is pretty devastating. You feel genuine guilt and and keep thinking 'what if' in terms of doing things differently. As much as I loved ME2, I didn't really feel that at all with it. That alone makes ME3 a winner for me, as the whole decision making thing was what I was looking forward to the most when I first played ME2 after hearing how awesome that whole thing is in ME1 and even going back to The Knights of the Old Republic, and in that sense, ME2 didn't quite measure up for me, but ME3 so far seems to be making up for that.

Hmm, not quiet sure you speak for everyone here. I'm a massive fan of ME (ME2 is the best game I've played this gen and possibly the last one too), and I found the second (which contained less clutter that some like to call RPG elements) a much, much better game than the first. What you have to remember is the context of the story and the continuation of it is much more important than having daft things, say, like, more armour choices, or a couple of additional characteristics to build in the character. The crux of any kind of RPG is the story regardless of any other feature.

I agree. Whilst the streamlining aspects are possibly appeasement for the masses so to speak, I don't think it's all bad. I've loved each entry in the series and if you went back to ME now, it does not hold up well against ME 3. I think people complaining a lot need to look at the game in isolation. It is superb. It's a work of love by Bioware as much as it is a product. Some of the little touches are absolutely superb. Going to illuminate my ME geekiness to illustrate my point- (SPOILER When you can buy the collection of Tennyson for Ashley when she's in hospital. Lovely, lovely touch. END SPOILER Love Mass Effect

Finished it. Was totally engrossed from start to finish. Ending is a bit controversial to the more loyal fans of the series, I think Bioware tried to please EVERYONE and that is always a difficult task when the scope is so big.

What I will say is that we as fans deserved a better/longer epilogue.

Hated the ending. Didn't matter what you chose as they were all the same movie with different colors and some details. For a series that was all about choice they really fucked it up. The game was great except for the last 5 minutes.

The combat was kind of boring. It was the same enemies all game. You were either fighting Cerberus or Reaper zombies along with the Geth (again) once. 


That said I played it so much I got motion sickness yesterday.

My review for Func_Msgboard:

Quote
Mass Effect 3  2012/03/12 10:40:46
I've just finished this.

What a bad game.

I can not remember ever having played a game in which I did not die once. Well, I did one time when I went too far from the objective. The game decided to kill me, out of the blue. I actually tried it again and got killed the same way. All the fights are more or less the same. Get behind something and shoot at the bad guys from behind there. There is absolutely no need to upgrade your weapons, the normal pistol could get you true the whole game.

At one time I was supposed to activate 2, ehm, things in the map. There were lots of enemies around. I just ignored them and pushed the buttons and that triggered a cutscene.

If you look at the game stripped to the core basics, you are left with mostly random shooting bits in very very simple made maps.
The maps look nice (decent anyway...), but you can only walk as far as the invisible walls allow you to. The playable part of the maps are so bad that they wouldn't even be rated on Quaddicted. Often it's just hallways surrounded by inaccessible map areas.

The sidemissions are the dumbest thing I've ever seen in games. You walk in the Citadel and overhear people talking about stuff they want. That stuff you can get from doing planet scanning, a part of the game most doable after smoking some cannabis sativa. If you already did all the planet scanning thing, you don't have to search for anything anymore and just collect your reward from the people with the red squares around there head.

And then there is the interaction part. Maybe it's got something to do with my being Dutch and not having a degree in English, but it looks very much open to interpretation. I can't recall a specific moment in 3, but I've got one from 2: At one point an alien spoke to me about a spider queen I released in the 1st game. One of the options was to say: "Tell her to be good". I choose that one. I thought it was a nice thing to say but my character made it into a warning !

And then there is the love aspect in the game. I chose to save the games being a faithful and a not cheating partner to the blue girl. Sure, she was nice to me for the pre-endgame battle, but before that she used to greet me by saying "Shepard", or "Nice to see you". That's fucking love for you ...

And then there is the ending. It is so mindbogglingly stupid that I regret not only playing part 3, but the whole series.

But the point I'm trying to make is this:
The game gets stupidly great reviews from almost all the gaming media. One of the best games ever, they dare say. The reviews I've seen on the internet say more about the state of our planet then about Mass Effect's, I'm afraid ...

My score, for what it's worth ...

My review for Func_Msgboard:
Extremely harsh and I can't agree with a lot of the complaints in this review. If it's too easy for you, there are increased difficulty levels available to you. I assure you, you won't go through on insane without dying once. You say that the combat is all about getting behind cover and shooting at something?! Is that not self-evident for all third-person shooters? I've gone into rant mode but 4/10 just doesn't cut it. Even if you hated the combat, just look at the technical achievement that is the game itself, surely worth a few more notches. A tip, don't write reviews in first-person. It invites criticisms such as mine in that you're making it too individually subjective to a reader, it makes the gripes you have seem personal, linked to you, rather than the games' actual problems. Our opinions are extremely divergent when it comes to this game.

The game isn't a shooter, it is a role-playing game and for that you should be grading it on it's story, which for 24 hours and 50 minutes is amazing and every bit equal to the hype.

The mission on the Asari homeworld turned the series into something more than a game for me.
