    The game looks absolutely amazing, but I don't think I'll be buying it at launch. I just don't have the time to dedicate to it, and it would be a shame for me to buy it and have it collect dust. I hear the demo is super bad ass as well.

    Saw the trailer on Walking Dead the other day, pretty damn cool. I've enjoyed the last two, and well, I'll probably be getting this. ;)

    I've loads of stuff I've not got around to playing yet (Skyrim & Dead Island amongst others) but I'm def picking this up.

    It's my birthday at the end of the month and I've dropped enough hints that if I can't not get this (or at least the pre order receipt).

    ME2 is one of my favorite games of all time, so I'll definitely get 3 at some point, but I don't really feel the need to rush out and get games at launch anymore. For one thing, games drop in price pretty quickly now days, and if you wait long enough, they always release a special edition that includes all of the DLC on the disc. Plus, like you guys, I already have a bunch of games I haven't even started yet, so i'm not in a big hurry. The game looks awesome, though. The only thing that worries me a little bit is I've read that this one is supposed to be more action oriented, and less focused on the story. The story and interactions with characters are what makes these games cool, so hopefully they don't cut back on that aspect too much.

    I've got it pre-ordered (first time I've ever done this for a game) and am finishing up a third playthough of ME1/2 to have the character ready for import. However I've got misgivings about the depths of your system the Origin software plumbs; reading browser cookies, for example, could lead to my account here being compromised.

    I hate Origin with a passion.

    I can guess why it needs/wants that info, but it seems a little invasive.

    As much as I'd like this on PC, ME1 and ME2 were played on Xbox so in order for my progress to carry over, I'll have to get get this on Xbox as well. The Kinnect commands will be quite interesting too. I didn't think I'd be a fan, but they worked quite well in Halo Anniversary.

    Downloaded the demo last night. Seems pretty good.

    I've no objection to reasonable marketing/diagnostic data being gathered, but the EA/Origin EULA is way too vague yet all-encompassing for comfort.

    I thought I had it on pre order too, but I received an email from Gamestation today advising they won't be able to fulfil my pre order.

    Gamestation - Mass Effect 3

    That's roughly the same wording as the email I received. Gutted because a Gamestation voucher specifically for the purchase of ME3 was my birthday present from my son. Thankfully Zavvi appear to have copies available.

    That's the 2nd time Gamestation have let me down; they screwed me over with the Limited edition of Halo: Reach. In that instance, Zavvi also saved the day (I also got the game a day early).

    Wonder what's happened? :mad:

    I've ordered the standard edition via Play, so hopefully I'll be okay. Gamestation lost my custom a while back for employing emos insted of human beings, and for playing cr@p nu-metal at ear-bleeding volumes. :)

    They couldn't reach an agreement by all accounts: Game, Gamestation won't stock Mass Effect 3 in March | T3

    Rumour has it they're in pretty dire financial straights.

    But yeah, the ridiculously loud metal is annoying and very off putting. However, they do some pretty good pre owned deals and I'm a cheapskate unfortunately :(.

    I've just started another playthrough of ME2 as well. Not sure how I wanna do the relationships this time around though. My ME1 is set, 100% complete of everything... the only reason i am considering running through it again is I'm not sure if i wanna have/keep my liara relationship or not... decisions decisions :)

    The Demo is off the chain but I am rusty. That's the reason I went ahead and decided to go through ME2 again.

    I also am gonna stick with the xbox version as that's where all my original saves/profiles are. Love the whole importing profile/decisions/etc in ME, it's one of the many things that make this one of the greatest game series of all-time...

    (edit: also not gonna rush to get it at launch, though the collector edition does look killer)

    I, honestly, do not find a problem with Origin at all. Sure, it's not Steam, but it does what it says, and lets me play my games. As much as I love Valve, I also love Crytek, DICE, Bioware, etc., and some stupid client that takes 5 minutes to install won't stop me from getting my games.

    Those "protesters" against Origin really think EA will put their games back. Obsession over Valve much? (the protesters)

    Not a problem here. My Soldier is besotted with Liara, my Infiltrator carries a torch for Ashley but seeks solace in Kelly, and the Vanguard is intrigued by the woman behind Tali's mask. :)

    Good for you, that's your prerogative. However do those of us with concerns the favour of not simply assuming we're driven by fanboy-ism. If that was the case I simply wouldn't have pre-ordered the game.

    Ahhh, Kelly :)

    But no, I've only ever had one real play through. And I always stick to solider. My ME2 saves are at a point where I can go back to right before I 'seal the deal' (lol) and switch it up if I want. Though I am hoping Miranda is in fact in ME3 (i havent heard anything) I really love her in Chuck and that Deniro movie :)D) and hope to continue things with her

    Oh yes, especially her off-duty dance moves! ;)

    I did two playthroughs like that, but wanted to see what the Tech and Biotic side could bring to the table.

    I've read quotes from Bioware confirming that she'll return provided she survived ME2. Not a problem Kaiden will have in any of my playthroughs..... :D

    Mmmmm. I was amazed when I saw just how close her in-game appearance is to real-life, apart from the hair colour. Legend has it that she turned dark to better-offset the Cerberous uniform design.

    What? She has dialogue?? Wonder how I missed that??? :eek:;)
