So, I spend $129AUS, that's $137.09US for you americanos, and I can't upload my Shepard's face to the game, and therefore can't single-player. Y'know, the reason why I buy a sci-fi RPG...

No, I'm talking about how I can't upload the face I played through Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 because EA either skimped on testing, or deliberately are trying to force the fans who have been playing from the beginning to play multiplayer while they wait for a patch.

Have you stored the data using the cloud? I've heard that has been causing some people to be unable to import their Shepard's faces. Oh man I'lll be playing it in a matter of hours once it's delivered, so excited.

  • No. There is more. But you are not worthy. Not yet
The game gets off to a rough start, but once you get a few hours in it returns to the Mass Effect you know and love. :)

I loved the game, one of the best I've played, all up until the last three minutes. If you haven't heard, this is a lot of outcry on the Internet from fans who feel let down. I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't beaten the game yet that wants to, but i felt raped after investing so much time and mone into the series for such a shitty ending. When someone has finished the game (postmortem?) let me know how you feel about it.

I will. Trying to take my time with it. I've heard the same thing, that you don't get a good ending if you don't invest some time in multiplayer, so I'm doing that in between playing campaign.

I'm really taking my time with it, I only played like 4 hours of it today, which is odd for me (for a new release anyway). I've been highly impressed wiith it so far, the only negative thing is the crazy glitches during cutscenes and conversations (like Shepard looking over his shoulder for an entire conversation). But it hasn't detracted from the immersion much, so I don't care. I like funny glitches, just not game-breaking ones.

I can't play, because I'm waiting for the stupid patch. And multiplayer takes years to connect most of the time.

ME3 actually has taken the least amount of time to find a match of any game I've played. Thats weird.
