So, anyone here playing it? I nabbed myself the collectors edition and cannot stop. I suspect this will be the most fulfilling experience I've had since I finished my song "Pair Annihilation". I got the first Mass Effect on the day it came out, and played it over 20 times, with six characters. Mass Effect 2 I paid for in full 6 months before release, easily played that over 30 times, with the same six characters.

Now Mass Effect 3 is out, I am only 10 hours in but I am completely engulfed in this. I am just starting to see the consequences of decisions I made in a game years ago, its a great feeling and one I hope games try to take on in the future.

So if you do play it? how many characters do you play? class? renegade or paragon? My two main characters are one male and the other female. Male one is a soldier, war hero, earth born played Paragon. Female is a Vanguard, ruthless, and spaceborn, played Renegade.

Also, to show my fanaticism, heres my collection, or at least what I could fit on my desk.

Wow, you're hardcore with this game.

Until yesterday, I had never played a ME game (even though I'm a big gamer). I tried the ME2 demo after watching some ME3 gameplay.

I'm really impressed by the story, usually these things don't get me, but all it took was a few minutes and I was loving it.

Do you reckon it's worth starting at #1 and working towards 3?

Nice collection, definitly one of the best videogame ever wink.gif I've ordered it and should receive it soon. I don't play videogame much, but this one is just one of a kind and is the final chapter of Jack Shepard's adventures... I don't think i'll be able to restrain myself from diving into it.

In mass effect 1 and 2 I played a sentinel class specialized in levitating foes into the air, it was very powerful and fun to play.I mixed paragon and regenade actions. my choices are not focused to one or the other but more to personal choices I'd make in real situation, its my movie after all smile.gif

I will probably play ME3 two or three times in a row, then my absolute full intention is play 1 through 3. It would basically be an evolving experience of at least 200 hours gameplay. The story is immense, you play 1 and the feeling is huge at the final battle. The second installment tops that, the ending absolutely leaves chills all over your arms, even thinking about it now does that to me. And the start of the third is just as epic, with the attack on Earth - the trailer for the attack is even better in game.

I would highly recommend it, ME 1 is probably $10, ME 2 is $20 brand new, by the time you beat those two ME3 will probably be $40. or at least cheaper than $65.

Of course most people know I have a bias for Science Fiction, but the inclusion of so many species, with so many choices, prejudices, and a deep history make the experience incredibly human (The codex is ME3 has exploded in size). The emotional involvement is heavy, when faced with a decision to wipe a species from existence in ME1 for safety now, or benefit later, there isn't really a right choice, and you wont know how it benefits you or hurts until the last second, I love that aspect. Every choice has a consequence, and you carry those decisions with you since Mass Effect imports your save games, along with your decisions.

I cannot recommend this game highly enough.

I do that as well, although with my main characters I have that strict paragon or renegade as I like to see the benefits of it. Of course, I couldnt resist taking out the blue suns mechanic in the assault on archangel, that was just fun.

Thanks for the reply, Unc.! Unfortunately, ME2 is showing as £20 on Steam, but I'll see what I can do about ME1.
