Also, I listened to the voice samples and they are GLORIOUS.

I have a shocking revelation: You don't have to use the Prothean. Or get the DLC.

There is no JarJar Binks, there is no JarJarBinks, Phantom Menace doesn't exist, there is no JarJar Binks, there is no... :)

My faith in humanity is dead, not only is there a Prothean squaddie, the rumors about EDI having a body are also true...we are doomed as a species.  Our stupidity decrees it.

True, but sexbot EDI is still there. Cobra-levle Cerberus and TIM are still there. Stupid lines are still there. Plot holes are still there.

And, even if you don't play the DLC - it is officialy part of the setting.

Or get ME3, for that matter.

Re: Mass Effect 3 - There's a demo now
hey here are some multiplayer build tips for the classes i've done so far:

VAN GUARD: you can play this class as sort of a tactical 'front runner', sort of a 'forward disruptive element', as if you were the 'vanguard' of your 'fire team', it has 'good effect' on 'targets'
-just use the katana, it's for good vanguards
-don't bring an SMG, it's for bad vanguards
-weight is your enemy, you need to travel as light as you can
-put all your points into the two passives and biotic charge. your tactical capabilities depend on your ability to recharge your barrier by charging.
-use the vanguard flowchart, as follows:
             -am i charging? if no, go to step 2
             -CHARGE
             -SHOTGUN
             -goto 0

KROGAN SOLDIER
-I AM KROGAN
-FOR TUCHANKA
-*headbutt*

general tips:
IF YOU SEE A TURRET
-call the adept
-call the dudes with the widows

IF YOU SEE AN ATLAS
-call the dudes with the widows

IF YOU PLAY WITH GUYS WITH WIDOWS
-get out of the way

Re: Mass Effect 3 - There's a demo now
here are things everybody knows by now

-the plot is going to be full of dumb things
-preorder dlc is stupid
-biodrones are creepy

let's set these issues aside and focus on having a good thread

katana?  No Gravity Hammer?  Vanguard needs a Gravity Hammer.

Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

if you write 'gravity hammer' on the krogan's forehead it works pretty much the same way

This be truth y'all.

A few further notes:

Quarian Engineer:
-Spec your turret with cryo ammo and a flamethrower. Instant flanker-in-a-box. Note that you can have only one turret active, so
-Travel light. An assault rifle (like the Mattock) is all you need
-Also, incinerate ALL THE THINGS

Salarian Infiltrator:
-Energy Drain. Level it, steal other people's shields, or straight-up vampire them

All Infiltrators (Sniper builds):
-Your flowchart should be Cloak -> Shoot -> Reload -> Cloak. Throw in grenades/energy drains every now and then to mix things up.

Infiltrators (Backstabby builds):
-Get a shotgun.

Asari Adepts:
-Stasis, especially stasis bubbles, are the number one thing to use against Phantoms. Couple with a good pistol and a pistol scope, and watch how the infiltrators on your team will not get any headshots.

Vanguards:
-The barrier recharge you get from a charge will work quite nicely together with the asplodeyness of the nova.

Human Soldiers:
-If you are not adrenaline rushing, you are doing it wrong
-Grenades are there to be thrown

GENERAL ADVICE
If anyone complains about killstealing vanguards, you're doing it wrong. Be glad you have a vanguard buddy to draw the attention away from you and concentrate on getting objectives done and softening up targets for your vanguard to take down

Keep your missile launchers for emergencies. A single Atlas is not an emergency, just a particularly tough and slow target. An Atlas with a Phantom running around it is a worthy kill.

The Widow AMR can overpenetrate targets. Get more kills per shot. Also, you can fire through the shields Guardians use. If you have a high-level Infiltrator, you can kill an Atlas in 2 or three shots.

The Revenant is a really useless piece of heavy crap. Unless you have a rifle scope. Then it's just mediocre.

a brit talking about what he thinks of how the DLC is being handled for ME3

Watched it. Up to the point where he starts into his rant with the words "The game shipped incomplete". This is, to put it simply, wrong. The way it went down is, ME3 was finished in January. It then got handed off to the certification process necessary for all console releases; a process that takes roughly 2 months. During that time, in addition to doing all the final testing and stuff, a part of the team created this DLC.

Also, it's DLC. Noone is forcing you to buy it, noone is even forcing you to acknowledge its existence.

Far be it from me to ever say that. I argue against it quite often.

Rather you've repeatedly informed us you hate this, so, seeing as how you hate it, it makes sense you're not getting it and have deleted the demo and thus have nothing left to contribute to a thread about the game. Because you're not playing it. Because you hate it.

Except  I didn't say that. I said I hate the writing/plot that I've seen so far.
Since when does that constitute as "hating the whole game and not wanting to play it?"

Another classic example of you putting words in my mouth cause you have a chip on your shoulder.

Yes, there is a difference between bashing the writing and bashing the game. However, since you have been bashing said writing quite strongly, the assumption that you would not be buying this game is easy to draw. If I had such strong opinions about a story-driven game prior to release, I certainly would invest my 50€ elsewhere.

In addition, as noted in the previous thread, you are NOT BRINGING ANY NEW FACTS INTO THE DISCUSSION. You keep repeating your talking points ad nauseum. We get it, you think the story sucks. And I can certainly see why someone would come to that conclusion. However, at this point, all you are doing is just doing the broken record thing over and over again, which we are quite sick of.

Re: Mass Effect 3 - There's a demo now
A few facts about the DLC (straight from a source I know in Bioware):

1. It was started after the completion of the rest of the game content.
2. It was intended to be post-launch DLC.
3. They finished early and decided to make it day-1 DLC.
4. Putting it in the game would have delayed the release by several weeks due to reprinting, certification, etc.

I'm guessing that was made for ME2 originally?  It's bang-on.  I say this as a career Vanguard (I actually haven't played any other class because I'm too busy and too lazy to replay the whole game just to get a different class experience).

I must say, ME2's addition of the Charge ability made the class so much better, and it was already near the top end of awesome.  Maybe I need to suck it up and get Origin to play the demo for multi.

You can use Sandboxie - http://www.sandboxie.com/. I'm not sure how effective it is, but I'm using it, just in case. There is a custom dll which should discourage Origin from looking where it isn't supposed to -  http://www.sandboxie.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=4885
