Me too, but it'll be worth the wait. Plus... we have Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 to keep us busy.

This game cant come soon enough, i recently replayed ME1 and ME2 all the way through. Saved the Rachni and managed to keep everyone alive at the end of ME2, ive got my save backed up in multiple locations. Looking forward to some more Garrus storylines and an end to the saga.

In preperation for this game I decided to give ME2 another chance and I bit the bullet and bought all the dlc I didn't already have and started a new playthrough. Maybe I'll actually finish it this time. Gonna try to marathon it and get it finished by the time BF3 is out. That's looking doubtful though considering I had 30 hours into the game before I stopped playing it. :rofl:

You really owe it to yourself to play through the whole game and the two "big" DLCs (Arrival and Shadow Broker). The way each piece wraps up the story is really well done. Not to mention it's just fun to plow through enemies once you're higher level.

I know. I've pre-ordered the ME2 collectors edition and played it for a while after launch. Then it came to light that they would be releasing a lot of dlcs for the game so I just gave up on it and haven't gotten around to playing it since.

Though I still think it's incredibly lame that part of ME3's plot revovles around a dlc from ME2.

Here's a co-op screenshot. The quality indicates that it's from the X360 or PS3. You can see more at Joystiq.

I just finished replaying ME1 from scratch. I got myself a level 60 shep, with all the story decisions how I want them. The game never gets old, I love it. Time to move on to ME2 for the dozenth time or so. I can't wait.

Mass Effect 3 Private Beta Unintentionally Released With Xbox Live Preview Update

Posted Image

That’s certainly what it looks like, going by these screenshots. Weighing in at a hefty but manageable 1.81GB, the private beta has provided a number of users a glimpse of the game well ahead of its March 2012 release.

Posted Image

According to the NeoGAF thread where the images were uploaded, the beta is missing textures and sound effects and is by no means the full experience as BioWare intended it. A poster with access to the download mentions there’s a difficulty level “below casual for people who really don’t like the combat” and “a mode that selects dialog automatically for people who don’t like the talking bits.” I’m hoping these are simply jokes, but something tells me they might not be.
Let us know if you’re able to download it. Currently, it appears it’s only showing up for US users that are a part of the Xbox Live Preview Program.
More shots can be found below, and at the NeoGAF link.

Of course some people are already screeching about the apparent addition of auto dialog and easier combat modes. Although these modes don't affect you if you don't want to use them, people have wasted no time complaining about them.

Those screenshots look awesome. I love how they got rid of the stupid skill system of ME2 and went back to a more ME1 type of system. The HUD looks great too.

Damn, I want this game so badly.

I hope they allow a higher fov than ME2. After played that game again the last week or two the screen feels entirely way to cramped. So either the fov needs to be higher or they need to move the over the shoulder camera further back.

Everyone's complaining about the quality of this leak. For something 4-5 months from release I found it to be worthwhile. I've said it a dozen times now. Sure I encountered bugs but it's unfinished and there's placeholders all over. It's not something people should be concerned about.

Accidental or not it was great to glimpse some of the possible design changes. They could stay or go but seeing what they're up to was definitely nice.

All in all I'm glad I had the chance to play it. Especially since it wasn't the same as what I saw at PAX, E3, etc.
