No Mass Effect fan am I, but I would like to point out that the Baldur's Gate games also featured multiplayer, with no adverse effect on the single player experience. So Bioware is absolutely capable of getting this right.

Ahh, that's right. It'd require something REALLY stupid happening on some level to screw things up. Certainly I don't see them being like Capcom there!

A great fucking way to get minerals and shit is salvaging from a battle. Have a space battle, or maybe an assault mission and then you just recover items. The harder the mission, the better the payoff.

The problem is with space battles in the ME universe. If you read the codex crap from ME1 they say that it's basically huge capital ships in a battle of attrition. Fighters are basically suicide attacks because automatic targeting vaporizes them

Then let's go pirate and have it be more of a scavanging operation. You find a derelict vessle, have to traverse it's creepy hallways, and pinpoint locations where minerals can be extracted. Some of them contain aliens, renegades, or volitile conditions.

ME 3 is "a single player game" confirmed by a moderator on the forums!

That's a damn fine idea. Taking that a step further with a renegade twist...raiding and boarding ships that aren't abandoned!

Female Shepard for paragon.  Male Shepard for renegade.  Do this for maximum enjoyment.

Really?  I do the exact opposite; female Shepard is a total bitch. :P

Yeah same here.My FemShep tortures,murders and intimidates her way into the galaxy.If the Reapers think they are ruthless,FemShep will show off human cruelty at its finest

I'm glad you say so because that's the route I was going to take with my FemSheppard.
Since my main male Sheppard is the good guy I'd like to see how is it to play on the other end. Maybe even

When I started ME1 I didn't even think of making a ShepBro

Female all the way. My Shepard don't take no guff.

ME3... can't remember last time I looked forward to a game this much. Ocarina or Mario 64 probably.

I played through Mass Effect 1 & 2 a lot of times. CUrrently I have five 'main' characters for transfer into ME3 - three male, two female. The female voice just seems so bored and subdued a lot of the time. Male Shepard is much better voiced.

For ME3 I hope they take away the ship navigation on the galaxy map. Keep fuel expenditure, maybe, but the actual piloting around of the normandy felt ridiculous. In a game where you're trying to impress w/ the size of the galaxy which is filled with brilliant looking planets and nebulae having something so completely off scale is cheapening.

In the 1st one it could be made that it was simply a scaled map. in 2 since you actually flew around that doesn't work.

Also. Please let me see what Tali looks like :)

You are assuming Bioware will do the multiplayer. Remember, EA owns their ass. Stuff like this has been outsourced before.

Yeah, I went the Tali route. First off, I thought she was the most interesting female character in the series, bar none, and the most likeable, especially since I tend to play paragon. All the other women seem hollier-than-thow in some way. And secondly, I have to admit, BioWare did a damn good job of making a suited, faceless character attractive.

Still, all the sex scenes were crap. Miranda's wasn't TERRIBLE, but it still felt wrong. All of them are too abrupt, with people GRABBING EACHOTHER REALLY FAST! I guess they're trying to show how non-committal the relationship is. Still, they feel off.

Taking the suggestion of the Illusive Man... I mean, he's Martin Sheen.[/color]

Too bad the illusive man's son is a crazy lunatic.
