    Multiplayer? Unless it's "take control of squad member" type multiplayer, I'll want to pass. There's no need for a "deathmatch" bullshit in this game.

    I just don't think there's a need for multiplayer in this game, period, whether it's death match or co-op.

    I don't think there's a need for it either. Makes no sense why they add it for the final installment. But if it has to be there, at least let it only be co-op.

    I think co-op would be fun. Multiplayer would be stupid.

    I just think on a game driven so much by story, co-op really wouldn't do it justice. Let's be honest, how often do you pay attention to the story of a game when playing it with others? If they want to make a multiplayer Mass Effect, might as well make an MMO (which I'm also not too keen on).

    Fuck multiplayer on ME. The greatness of these games lie in the story, not some half assed multiplayer deathmatch or co-op shit. This is definitely a game where you want to immerse yourself in it, and having your buddy yelling and screaming because some kid just killed him would be annoying. Plus I HATE it when people talk over cut scenes...

    Anywho, I Pre-ordered the collectors edition the other day and am feeling no buyers remorse. I'm playing through ME1 right now on a couple of different story arcs. I'm progressing really slowly thanks 2k12, work and school though. I'm kind of happy I still have a few months before it comes out.

    Yeah I am gonna preorder the Collector's Edition pretty soon here I think. Lots of in game bonuses so it's worth it I think.

    I was ripping thru 2 on Insane (not terribly hard as I said before but it has some RIDICULOUS moments) and then I got GoW3 so now I'm playing that. I'll get back to ME2 once Im done.

    What do you think of GoW3? I set down my insanity play through of ME2 for GoW3 as well and I thought the campagin was decent on GoW3 but they need to tweak Versus MP before it can be considered balanced.

    I'll wait until Amazon offers some credit towards a future purchase to pre-order the CE. I'm glad I discovered that so I can save some money on all the games I'm buying the next several months.

    Enjoying the campaign a lot but the Lambent are nowhere near as fun to fight as the Locust. Havent touched MP so I can't comment.

    i can't wait to get the latest ME2 dlc, im also kinda glad that they pushed it back, that way all the games released this fall with get some attention before March when a couple months will be dominated by ME3

    i wonder how they're gonna do resource/base hunting this time around as both of the previous methods (dumb-ass driving and planet scanning) both left alot to be wanting

    I'd be fine with the way they did it in ME2 cause once you bought the upgrade that increased your scanning speed it was pretty quick and easy. I HATED having to land on the planet and drive for 5 mins over huge mountains to find shit.

    It almost sounds like they're going to try and force you to take part in the co-op in order to have a COMPLETE game experience and get the best possible ending. Lame...

    IDK at first I was apprehensive to the idea of multiplayer, but it sounds pretty cool. I like the idea that you don't have to be human. Being a Turian or Drell would be kinda cool.

    When I play Mass Effect I tend to shut myself off from human communication lol

    I don't think multiplayer on this game is for me.
