Title: Mass Effect 3 playable demo is out.
Post by: IceAge on February 23, 2012, 02:20:03 am
Hi Maybe this is old news ( i just returned from a 4 week holliday in the USA) had a great time!

I just saw an email from EA that i could download the dutch version of Mass Effect 3 Demo wich contains 2 hours of playtime.
Just started it and it looks fantastic.

Have a nice day
Here is the link ( In dutch)

Grabbed this about a week ago. The multiplayer is surprisingly compelling, especially since I ususally favor single player content. That's probably because it's all co-op (at least for now), so it's less likely than a competetive game to bring out the worst in the other players.

Hi all,

Unfortunatly ME3 has a HUGE bug which is still not fixed.
Its impossible to import your shepard created in ME1-> Imported in ME 2  to ME3.

There is a topic on this with more as 50.000 views and loads and loads of reactions.

I also set a complaint and in the end i said :-> So i will not play ME3 until it is fixed.

I am gooing back to play Star Control 2 ( Urquan Masters) which in my opinion is the best SF game ever created.

Maybe this will bring fresh blood into SC2  (I hope so)

Take care you all.

Well if that's true then thanks, you spared me a futile installation.

I hadn't heard about this at all until now. Is this limited to one version, or across all platforms? Does it apply if you created a new character for ME2 (since I never played the first)?

Of course, ever since the day 1 DLC fiasco broke, I've decided to wait for my usual price point for the game instead of grabbing it on launch. So it'll probably be a long time before it hits $20, so this should get resolved by then.

try it before you curse it. .
Normally I'd be happy to just let the bot be silently deleted, and I'm sure it will be, but I think this sentiment needs to be preserved. Sure, it might *look* terrible, and it might have a bad reputation, and you might have several concrete reasons why you're pretty sure you won't like it... but do you know? Really? No. You must try it to be sure.

That said I don't like the look of the CCG aspects of the multiplayer, and wasn't planning on buying the game anyway since it's probably more graphics-intensive than any hardware I've ever seen in my life can handle. I'm still smarting after Quantum Conundrum and its UNALTERABLE GRAPHICS SETTINGS NOW ENJOY YOUR MOTION BLUR.

Hi
of corse many of us aalready knew that a lot of Mass Effect was "coming" from Sc2.. But it amazed me that on the ME forums it  seems that the fans just now discovered that :)

Well maybe due this SC2 may get new player blood.

see this topic:

my comment with promotion for P6014 and telling there they should play SC2 is on page 10 (Emphyr) io.

take care and regards from The Netherlands.

I am working so cant stay online.
