The multiplayer is a ton of fun and for people w/ two consoles who's going to be doing what on each system is a good enough factor to determine which copy you get. After all is said and done I bet I put almost as many hours into the multi on ME3 as I do the campaign. Of course this depends on how long the campaign is.

Thank you J. Jonah Jameson. You made me lawl. That running looked silly. I'm glad I'm a boy.
Just Greg, thanks.

It's like the running drill where the tires are on the ground and you gotta jump from tire hole to tire hole.

I know I'm late to the party on this one, but I played LotSB last night, and to echo the thoughts of Kirk Hamilton in his article about ME3, if all of ME3 is like this DLC, I will love every bit of it. The writing and interactions between Shepard and Liara were great, the action parts were well done, and it delivered TWO memorable boss fights. I loved all the in-jokes too, and they really captured the sense of that special relationship between two really good friends/comrades.

The part that really got me was the personal continuity. During the first boss fight:

Code: [Select]
I chose the Paragon dialog option, and Shepard brought up his actions regarding the Rachni and how he saved the council (in my game), and used it to intimidate Tela Vasir. I really dig these throwbacks to these previous decisions, since they were kinda sorta super important, so why not bring them up more.

Ha. I love the Renegade text (Intimidate) that my FemShep used on that boss, even if it's mean.
Code: [Select]
It's not continuity like the Paragon text, but renegade Shepard just calls Tela Vasir a coward, telling her that asari should really just stick to dancing. 'Play to their strengths.' She then threatens to kill the hostage and then show her how a [i]real[/i] Spectre gets things done. (Last time I didn't have enough Intimidate so I wounded the hostage.)That fight is most badass if you're also a Vanguard. Zooming around the map in a cat-and-mouse game of 'who can biotic charge who harder' is so much fun. The second boss fight, the one at the end of LotSB is probably my favourite in all of ME2.

Thanks a lot guys. Just when I was getting over my ME2 file being corrupted and not being able to play LoTSB, now I read this stuff. Thanks SO much.

Marathoning ME1 and 2 just so I have fresh games to import into each other with the release of ME3. I actually want to replay all as MaleShep at some point, but I do love my FemShep so far. Finished ME1, and almost done ME2 (I think).

I was thinking she had a loaded space diaper.

I loved Vanguarding it up in ME2. But man... getting yourself separated from the group could really do you in some times. I kinda' wanna' play LotSB now! Everyone's had pretty positive reviews about it, but I just didn't take the time or spend the space bucks to dive into it!

Also, to recap, who should I be adding to XBL for ME3 multiplayer goodness?
Just Greg, thanks.

LotSB was really good. It's cheap now, or it was a week ago when I got it.

LotSB was awesome. Get it!

And Vanguard... I try to charge if there aren't TOO many enemies. At least in ME3 we'll have heavy melee AND Nova. Oh god yes team Vanguard.

Don't know how many of you are getting it digitally, but here you go.



Also, I feel sorry for people in the UK whose preorders all got screwed up yesterday.

Also also. I refused to triple post but I really love this launch trailer.
