    Default Mass Effect 3 announced!

    Link to video

    I seriously cannot wait. When I saw the trailer I almost peed my pants.

    ME3 and TESV within a month of each other? I'll not be getting any sleep this time next year.
    When Adam delved and Eve span, Who was then the gentleman? From the beginning all men by nature were created alike, and our bondage or servitude came in by the unjust oppression of naughty men. For if God would have had any bondsmen from the beginning, he would have appointed who should be bound, and who free. And therefore I exhort you to consider that now the time is come, appointed to us by God, in which ye may (if ye will) cast off the yoke of bondage, and recover liberty. - John Ball

    Wait, so what is Jason Statham shooting at anyway? Geth? That'd be boring.

    Also, Earth is supposed to be an overcrowded slum in Mass Effect - a few million dead in a week sucks but isn't going to set humanity as a whole that far back.

    Its not Geth. Its arms are too long. Most likely a husk-like thing.

    Also, the Reapers take centuries to wipe everything out. It will take a while. Plus we cant really judge the game based on a one minute clip. So Ill wait for more info before I say anything more than the fact that I am very, very excited.

    I thought it was Gears of War 3, untill 5 seconds near the end when you saw Reavers.

    By the sound of it, it's citywide London, not global. A bit different on the scale then.

    We are all aware that the senses can be deceived, the eyes fooled. But how can we be sure our senses are not being deceived at any particular time, or even all the time? Might I just be a brain in a tank somewhere, tricked all my life into believing in the events of this world by some insane computer? And does my life gain or lose meaning based on my reaction to such solipsism?

    I wonder if the English guy will be the heir to the ME franchise now that ME3 is supposed to be the end of Shepeard's story.

    That or he will be the leader of the resistance (in other words, the one in charge of Earth forces until Shepard gets there). Or he could be dead, considering all the destruction around him and his injuries.

    Hope not. There's only so much Simon Pegg I can stand.

    Depends on how they handle the inventory system. Story will be great, but the gameplay needs to be better.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    I doubt it.
    How would that be accomplished? Only one person can play as Shepard.

    Not hard really. Co-op drop-in isn't that far-fetched of a concept depending on how they do it. They could even add support for npc interaction if they wanted, they could either give the host full control of dialogue choices or allow the lobby to vote on which path to take.

    The article said co-op like GoW horde mode(?) I hevn't played the game but in my understanding it's a situation where there isn't any story, just waves of enemies whom the players have to fight.
    In which case it would seem that BW want to exploit ME3's seemingly improved shooting features and gameplay and allow to player to play the game as a pure shooter instead of an RPG with a story. Which is fine, as long as the shooting is at par with other FPS games.

    I dunno doesn't seem that hard to me man sure only one person can be Master Chief but it didn't stop co-op there.
    They slew him with poison afaid to meet him with the steel

    Yeah but there is no real interaction and dialogue choices to do in Halo.
    A full story I doubt would be co-op, but I get the whole "fight the horde" idea. That could work, but there would be no real ME-style plot with dialogue wheels and everything.

    It could be possible to do it even with dialogue etc you make controller one the lead your mates are the squad they must protect you and advance the story.

    But yeah it's prob gonna be Horde thingy still I dont care a fig as long as ME3 is a cracker

    Think any coop would be a separate game mode from the singleplayer. Can't see the campaign getting coop treatment, but never know.

    Separate horde mode co-op, or a module made specifically FOR co-op is perfectly fine with me. I won't shed any tears if the campaign doesn't see co-op.

    Thanks for the link Krusader.
