Other buying options will be Steam and directly form the. ???

Note:  buying form them gives you a steam key and the above goodies so everyone go that route to give them the most monies!

In a bit of a hurry when writing this, weren't you? slywink

The game can be bought directly from the developers here. You get immediate access to the preorder bonus stuff, as well as a key that lets you add the game to Steam. And as morlac said, it's a good way for you to support the devs since they'll get more money when you buy directly from them even though the price is the same for you. I expect GOG and Steam both keep about 30% of the money paid through them, so it's significant enough.

Anyone who's willing to pay for Bioware to change the ending doesn't deserve to be called a gamer. "Tool" is more appropriate.

I took him out a few times(just trying to use all my team),but i didn't get anything from him,maybe its for certain missions

I did get one or two stories on the ship when i did my rounds and a cutscene where Liara was going Apeshit at him,but that was about it

People you encounter will notice him and involve him in discussions, and he will break into many discussions just like other team members. In fact, unlike Zaeed in ME2, the prothean is just as fleshed out as the rest of your crew. I used him for the first few missions after I found him, and every one of them featured extended conversations due to his presence.

that link isn't working for me, so i don't know if it references one book per season, but in previous articles - there has been reference to the later books in the series getting two seasons per book (starting with storm of swords)

No, there's been talk about ONLY Storm of Swords receiving two seasons, while books 4 and 5 will most likely be combined, though they'll still occupy two seasons in total. That means we're looking at 6 seasons to cover all the 5 books released so far.

not sure I like real time, and I know I dislike kiting the enemies.

yeah, the combat seems very clunky

This subgenre of RPGs is built around that style of combat. You're supposed to be moving around instead of standing in place, but moving presents its own dangers if you don't know the environment well. You could walk into a trap, stumble upon more monsters, or get surrounded if you're not careful. It's not clunky. It's highly tactical and deliberate. If you always played Eye of the Beholder or Lands of Lore by standing in one place and hitting the attack buttons, you were doing it wrong and probably found the game to be far more difficult than intended.

Bleah. I don't mind difficult, but having to reload to play the same sections

It's not that kind of difficult. You don't save or reload like you're used to in this game, but you can rest and save at bonfires scattered around the levels. This also respawns all enemies, which sometimes means you may just skip a bonfire. Dying means that you've learned something you can use the next time you're at that specific section.

Indeed. Why are you so upset about what Lordnine does with his own gaming time, Sparhawk? It's not like it affects you. My point earlier was that there was no chance in hell we'll see a quicksave for Dark Souls since its entire foundation is built upon the lack of that concept, whereas you seem to go on the offensive and actually attack Lordnine for his gaming preferences. That's just uncalled for.

It seems Amazon has managed to silently sneak in a feature that has been much wanted for the Kindle: The ability to clear the furthest page read. If you go to Manage Your Kindle on the Amazon site, you can now choose "Clear furthest page read" on the action menu for each book. It's about time they added this very basic function in my opinion, but I'm glad it's finally there.

Because Bioware flat-out lied about 'being able to see all endings just doing single-player', perhaps? And years in the future, once EA has shut down their servers and such, it will be completely impossible to see the 'best' 'ending' period without visiting Youtube.

unless you're on the PC and grab the save game editor and give Diana Allers a war asset rating of 12K biggrin

I dunno how much difference that would make. I mean, most GTers would probably have the same rating before and after meeting her. slywink

"Coming in April: New paid DLC that expands and explains the ending to Mass Effect 3."

I saw the indoctrination theory video and immediately dismissed it. It's grasping at straws ("you can see the boy smirk" - No you can't!), doesn't have a single piece of evidence in it beyond absurd speculation, and is jumping at a conclusion that goes against the evidence we've seen since Mass Effect 1. Indoctrination has been subtle (for the person suffering from it) in every single case we've seen. In every case the indoctrinated person has believed himself in full control of the situation. In fact, I can't find anything about Shepard's situation that reminds me of other characters' indoctrinations.

What the heck was Shepard indoctrinated for anyway? If he was actually given the power he had at the end, that wouldn't really make sense for the Reapers to allow him to defeat their entire purpose like that. If he was indoctrinated they wouldn't have let him.

If he didn't have the power to do anything about the Reapers and it all took place in his mind, that's even worse. No other indoctrinated character experienced anything like that in any of the sources I've seen.

No, indoctrination is a poor theory and should be dismissed.

Your other option is to play the free iOS data pad app.  I've been doing that and for minimal interaction, you can get a good 4-5% readiness increase per 5 hours.

I would do that IF I had an iPhone or iPad and IF I was at all interested in mobile games and IF that method wasn't still a cheap way for Bioware to earn even more money from me. Thanks, but no thanks. I bought Mass Effect 3 to play Mass Effect 3. Why should that be so complicated?

Highest sales numbers for the iPad ever at launch.

Sony and Nintendo have got to be pissed/scared. The iPad is a sales monster.

Nintendo might be worried since their focus is on the casual/family market, but I seriously doubt Sony has any concerns about the iPad. Their markets barely overlap at all.

I don't know about that.  I've got a PSP.  I would probably get a Vita, except I just can't justify it.  I don't travel that often and when I do my iPad can fill in for the on-the-road gaming I would have used a Vita for.  I'm going to bring along the iPad anyway for casual work support and recreation (videos, websurfing, etc) so it doesn't make a lot of sense to have a second expensive device along just to play games, when I can play decent, but not great games on the iPad.

Now as far as giving up my PS3 or XBox for the iPad, no, but the iPad is definitely a reasonable replacement for a PSP, Vita, DS, for all but the hard core gamers.

You are in other words a casual user. You're not the target audience for the Vita, at least not at this stage of its lifetime. My point stands. Sony isn't planning on regaining the entirety of the PSP market because they know that is practically impossible at this point.

yeah i have the guide and even with every side mission,and planets where there is random crap on there for your galactic readiness is not enough for the 4000 you need for the best ending

There's another ending tier unlocked at 5000 supposedly, which is the one I referred to with my math above. That means there are two whole tiers of endings locked away even from people who grind every bit of single player content.

Guys, you don't have to play the multiplayer.  Everything I have read about this says there are more than plenty of points to accrue doing side missions and scanning and such to counteract the 50% readiness you would have by not doing multiplayer.  Most people that play RPGs are super anal about doing every piece of side content and so should be easy to accomplish.  So, quit getting angry and go play all the single player content.  You'll get the best ending.

That's what Bioware said, but it's wrong. I did every single mission available to me and got alliances with every single race in the game, yet my final score was 3500. That's 1500 below what is needed for the best ending. The "progress bar" in the game implies that the maximum is 3000, but it lies.
4027  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect 3 on: March 21, 2012, 11:53:57 AM
This is the second game in a row that Bioware has managed to mess up mostly because of economic decisions. The core game is still great, but it is diminished compared to the previous ones. Where are the more complex decisions we could make before? Why is every one of them now reduced to a choice between Paragon and Renegade and nothing else? Why is everything so formulaic? Why do I have to either play multiplayer or buy into Bioware's additional platforms (iOS, for example) just to get access to the best endings, and grind dull, meaningless content as punishment for not playing MP? Why do I have to have an EA account to play unless I want to avoid DLC altogether? Why must one of the most dramatically surprising NPCs in the series be kept away from me unless I buy day 1 DLC? Why do I need to read the novels and graphic novels, play ME2's DLC and follow the marketing to know who some of these NPCs are and what all these situations I come upon are all about?

I swear, if Bioware hadn't stuck closely to the core formula that worked with ME2 (unlike what they did with the transition from Dragon Age: Origins to Dragon Age 2), I'm sure the core gameplay would have sucked too. I enjoyed the majority of the game, but it felt like it was all too carefully laid out according to the wishes of a committee, and the amount of truly interesting choices in the entire game could be counted on one hand with fingers left over. For most of the game the choices were either "show empathy by clicking the dialogue option in the upper right corner" or "be an asshole by clicking the dialogue option in the lower right corner". Other choices would just add more dialogue before you were returned to the same choice. There wasn't even any need to read the text as I knew what the choices were about before they even showed up. I might as well have enabled the option that had the game pick dialogue for me for all the impact my own decisions had.

Speaking of choices, I also got the distinct impression that as long as I was reasonably consistent in my choices I would never get punished. There was always something that would balance your choices out. Did you decide to protect a civilian fleet instead of focusing on a military operation? Okay, the civilian fleet will be stronger and the military fleet will be weaker. Did you decide to focus on the military operation instead? Okay, the military fleet is stronger and the civilian fleet is weaker. The overall numbers are exactly the same. Did you protect the Destiny's Ascension in the first game? Okay, it'll be there to help you out but humanity's fleet is reduced. Did you let Destiny's Ascension burn? It won't be there to help you, but humanity's fleets are stronger. Same numbers.

Where's the impact? Am I playing the game, or is the game playing me?

Have you read any classic sci-fi, like say, anything by Arthur C. Clarke? If you're familiar with the kind of stuff that happens in those stories you might not have any issues with the ME3 ending, but if you're a a sci-fi virgin (Star Wars doesn't count) the end may feel a bit... random.

I liked it, but I can see why others wouldn't.

I hope they keep all my favorite Bioware features in this game:

- Day 1 DLC that feels central to the game, is included on the disc, and costs $10.
- Tons of moral choices, but they're all strictly black and white. Shades of gray are for losers.
- Half a million preorder packages offering you extra powerful equipment for buying from specific retailers.
- Origin exclusivity.
- High cost for the base game.
- DLC that resolves important plot points.
- Mobile apps, Facebook apps, Facebook Likes, Twitter subscriptions, email lists, all of which can have a dramatic impact on your single player game.
- Show the single player fans who's the boss by denying them the best endings if they don't play multiplayer with all the cool guys.
- So much merchandise that even manic collectors will feel overwhelmed.
- A message at the end of the game reminding you to purchase DLC.
- Required EA login. Extra bonus: If you lose your internet connection your DLC is disabled, because you're a filthy thief who doesn't deserve to be happy!
- Much loved NPCs from earlier games in the series who suddenly change personality 100% and turn into the least liked NPC in the series. Oh, hello Anders! Didn't see you standing there, all sullen-like.
- Characters and storylines that make absolutely no sense unless you've read all the books and comics and played all the DLC for the previous game, as well as watched all the marketing campaigns.

Hmm, suddenly this sounds much worse now that I've written it down. Maybe I'll have to reconsider...

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess what's going on in this movie right here, right now:

Spoiler for Hiden:
An alien race (the space jockeys) is trying to exterminate all races it considers a potential threat to itself. A signal is sent across the universe to attract those races advanced enough to seek it out. Once they arrive, the aliens do something to obtain the location of their home planet (probably some kind of brain extraction) and then sends a warship laden with bioweapons in the form of xenomorphs to wipe out the entire planet. The crew on the ship sent to seek out the alien signal discovers the plan and desperately tries to stop the ship before it can reach Earth. In the end they deliberately free one of the xenomorphs, which kills the space jockey and crashes the ship on an unknown, barren planet. The survivors then head home and tell their story, which leads directly into Alien, where Weyland-Yutani is trying to rediscover the location of the planet where the ship crashed to obtain the xenomorph for themselves.

Any better theories? smile
4036  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect 3 - Impressions Incoming! on: March 18, 2012, 05:04:48 PM
I finished the game yesterday, having completed every single mission and task that was ever assigned to me during the game. In other words, when I started the final mission that was the only active entry in my mission journal, and I had no failed missions. Playing as a paragon who did things pretty damn well, I had an effective strength of exactly 3500 in the end. I won't touch the MP even if I get paid for it. To know that even with all the time I spent maximizing my military strength (total playtime was about 45 hours) I still had two possible ending permutations completely out of my reach infuriates me. It also further shows that my decision to boycott Bioware from now on is the right one. Under EA they have become way, way too focused on the money, doing everything in their might to squeeze just a few more dollars out of us and making sure we're continually told in the SP game that we haven't bought into their agenda enough yet (through the readiness stat).

On the other hand, I actually sort of like the ending. I can see why others might not, but for me it worked. This may be because I've read quite a bit of classic sci-fi, and stuff like what happened in the end of ME3 is very typical of that genre. It was surprising, but it also made sense, was alluded to in all three games (even though that was probably accidental for the first two), and tied everything together without revealing too much about the fate of the galaxy (trying not to go into spoiler territory here).

What probably caught people off guard is that Mass Effect's story (all three games) is honestly quite weak and clichéd, whereas the ending suddenly turns everything on its head and goes into the realm of philosophy. What works so well with this series is the character development and the characters themselves. Remove them and you're left with a story that is paper-thin. Games like Freespace have a very similar story that is told much, much better (again, apart from the characters).

I can honestly say that if the ending to the game was what everyone probably expected, in other words:
Spoiler for Hiden:
the Reapers being destroyed by the MacGuffin and Shepard probably dying,
most of us would have been left bitterly disappointed (or at least I hope so). An ending you can see coming even before a game begins is not a good ending.

I don't care who they were. If they annoy and repulse me as a viewer while the director wants me to root for them as heroes, something has gone wrong at some point in the process. There are great movie characters that are likeable, and there are great movie characters that are unlikeable. Aliens has great characters that are likeable and a much larger amount of shitty characters that are unlikeable. They just suck all the fun and energy out of the movie for me.

I honestly don't see what the big appeal is with Aliens due to my issues with the characters and certain other aspects of it. When I rewatched the movie I was actually looking forward to giving it a new chance with a reasonably fresh perspective, but it took less than 30 minutes for me to hate almost every single character's guts again, and not in a good way.

It reinforced my opinion that Alien is the best of the three, followed by a distant Alien 3 and an even more distant Aliens. I just never could stand Aliens. It's filled with almost nothing but unlikeable characters (the best part about them is watching them die just so I don't have to listen to their shit any more), incredibly weak sound effects and aliens that suddenly aren't anywhere near as frightening as the one in the first movie. The section with the queen is good (and the first 15 minutes or so of the movie), but I had to suffer my way through the rest of the movie to get there.

Yeah I know. You don't agree. Deal with it. This is my opinion, and I'm sticking with it.

VERY much looking forward to Prometheus.

Ow, careful with the spin there! Someone might get hurt. slywink

It's not HBO's best selling DVD. What HBO says is that the Game of Thrones DVD has the best sales numbers in its first week of any HBO show ever. I suspect it's got a long way to go before it can claim to have sold more copies in total than the other shows.
