Yeah, that happened on my first ever play through. Ever since then, I max out Charm or Intimidate whenever I make a new Shepard in ME1 so I can always get the most out of the conversations.

So one thing has been bothering me about ME3 since Bioware first released information about it, is the tech-blade melee attacks.

Has anyone read any explanation about how a virtually displayed stabbing weapon is capable of doing actual harm? Is it like mini mass effect fields projected in such a way as to cause harm? I just don't get it.

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

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

4QVm6.jpg

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.

ZI3vS.jpg

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.

An egg-faced BioWare scrambled this morning to contain any damage done by
. The developer chalked it up to ?human error? and ask that everyone please, please remember this is all unfinished stuff.

The beta was made available by mistake to those in the closed beta for the new Xbox Live dashboard. BioWare got the beta taken down and deactivated, but not before tonnes of screenshots and even a little video made it out to the internet. So now, it?s time to unring the bell. Take it away, BioWare:

Hello everyone!

As most of you know by now, this evening an accidental leak occurred of some early
Mass Effect
3 beta code. Microsoft has advised us that through human error at their end, content which was meant for internal beta testing was flagged incorrectly and released to individuals who had signed up for the beta of the Xbox Live dashboard update. It has since been taken down and deactivated.

We?d like to stress that the leaked code is in a rough, unfinished state and was not meant for public release. The content is not final, and is not reflective of the quality of the finished, polished game due for release on March 6, 2012 (March 9 in Europe).

One feature that was present in this early build is a set of game play modes that are in development. In the beta code they are referred to as ?action mode?, ?story mode? and ?RPG mode?. We want to stress that these features are still in the early stages of development and will receive considerable iteration and refinement.

These modes are designed to give players an even finer degree of control over their game experience than ever before. Whether it be someone who finds the combat difficult but wants to experience the amazing story, someone who wants to focus on the action and combat game play, or fans who want the rich, story-driven RPG
Mass Effect
experience they?ve come to love ?
Mass Effect
3 will support all of these options. We?ll have more info in the days ahead!

Mass Effect 3 Internal Story Files Leak

BioWare: "We urge fans not to read them if they want to experience the purest form of the story."

Bioware hasn't been having the best of luck lately. They should just release Mass Effect 3 now to prevent any more leaks... :shifty:

I probably should have have mentioned that the IGN article doesn't disclose any of the leaked story elements. It's really just a general alert about the leak. So feel free to click on it if you like.
