I think I've read somewhere that only successful last mission can be imported to ME3.
Code:
How many people can you lose while still being successful?

One thing they said and I'm not sure how I feel about it, is that every class can use every weapon in the game, but you can only carry two weapons with you at a time unless you're a Soldier (then you can carry all of them). It might be alright but I can't realistically see anyone bring a Pistol with them unless they buff the Pistol.
That really depends. If your class does not have the skills necessary to use certain weapons effectively (Sentinels, for example, can only use pistols and SMGs pre-upgrade), it makes more sense to bring in a pistol which you can use effectively than an assault rifle which you cannot. I mean, try using an assault rifle as a sentinel in ME1, it's impossible. Besides that, each class outside of Soldier has abilities that are weapons unto themselves (tech and biotics), which can be infinitely more effective than weapons - as an Adept you're pretty much never at a loss, offensive-wise, because even with no ammo left you can throw out shockwaves and singularities and wait out the cooldown timer. It pretty much depends on how they balance weapon usage among classes.

I assume that, like in ME2, there will be a mid-game upgrade that allows you to carry another weapon or upgrade one existing weapon type.

I think I've read somewhere that only successful last mission can be imported to ME3.

Technically, 10. Maybe 11.

Code:
You need the last two people to hoist you into the Normandy, and I've never had only one person in my party survive.

I forgot the main reason I posted in here... I was trying to figure out why I am not a rabid fan, yet 100% sure to buy ME3.  Is it because the gameplay is what is so great about these games, and there is little else to chew on when you aren't playing?
I suspect the reason is the same as all of us, because you've molded Shepard into your own character, with his/her own distinct personality and choices, and want to see how it all ends.

Yeah, many of us have already invested a lot into the game and now want to go through that last leg of the journey.

A couple of the pistols in the second game were very powerful.  One or two shots to the head and the enemy was down, and it was more effective than me using a shotgun or sniper rifle at medium range.

Yeah, I actually used pistols quite a bit, they were fine in most situations.

I only invested in ME2, but at the same time got really invested there; spent about 57 hours including all the DLC and loyalty missions. I can only imagine how much those who played both games, are looking forward to ME3.

Don't get me wrong, I used the pistol a lot as well, but I feel that's more because I couldn't use other weapons effectively. If I could train in any weapons then odds are I wouldn't pick Pistol as one of my weapons, but that's just me. The impression I got from the article is that any class can use any weapon viably, although they never specifically said if there were class specific weapon skills you can train in like ME1 so that may still be around.

I think bioware just killed my 2011.Apart from the Dragon Age 2 disaster,this delay of Mass Effect 2 really killed it.

EA is about to find out what happens when you piss me off.

Half of the reason everyone was disappointed with Dragon Age 2 was the fact it was rushed. Do you REALLY want that to happen with ME3 just to play it this year?

Totally expected this to happen by the way.

There are too many great games this year anyway, 2012 needs some love. I don't think I have anything on my radar for the first trimester so I guess it's not bad.

Exactly. I would have loved to have played it this year, but will happily wait a few extra months for an even better game. Plenty of other good games coming out to tide me over.
Now if Uncharted 3 gets delayed, too...
