Default Mass Effect 3

I was looking for a way to connect with people for the multiplayer section of ME3. Is this the place?

Thanks,

Shayne

There is a Mass Effect 3 thread in the shooter section of the forums.

Well ME was an RPG, ME2 was a squad based action game with RPG elements. I fully expect ME3 to complete its transformation into CoD ...

I just played through ME1 and started up ME2 for a second time on Sunday. It's so incredibly depressing when you make the transition and find how much they removed from the game to make it more like Gears of War.

Out with weapon customization, companion armor customization, 90% of the character customization, the contiguous story swapped out for missions, the overheating mechanic swapped out for ammunition, the more strategic slower paced combat swapped out for high paced cover mechanics. It's all quite disheartening

I liked ME2 more than 1. There was a lot more moral ambiguity happening in 2. 1 was pretty cut and dry good vs bad decisions but there's a lot of stuff in 2 that is unavoidably both good and bad.

Overall I thought 2 was a much better game, better story that made you think about your choices and better combat too(combat in the first game felt like an artillery simulator) Of course, ME1 had the whole "brave new world to explore" vibe, and it was such a fantastic world too, a squeal will never capture quite the same feeling in that regard.

For me RPGs are about story, or more pricicely about playing a role in that story.

RPG does not = stats and dice rolling. It's not roll-playing, it's role-playing. Some pen and paper RPGs don't even use dice as they wanted to steer away form that stigma. Sadly, it seems with computer games that's the only thing people think RPGs are - stats, dice, leveling up ect.

My ultimate computer RPG would have no levelling, no stats, no stupid things like character "classes" just a wide range of possibilities to play through a story however I want and have the world and NPCs react to my characters actions in appropriate ways.

This was the reason I liked Dragon Age 2 more than the original.

The biggest problem I had with ME2's story, was that it never seemed like one story. Each character had their own story and the mission story was independent from those. In my opinion, the number of small stories in the game ended up diluting them to the point where I couldn't remember what was happening in the main story.

I played through the game again recently and there were huge reveals in the story that I had completely forgotten. Something that did not happen, with the first game.
