In general, ME3 was a huge downgrade from ME2. I played both beside each other and I'm watching the wife replay all three now. Just in general, ME3's storytelling is worse, its graphics are actually overall worse except the environments (holy shit did character models get a downgrade besides Shep), animations are worse, questing is worse, etc etc etc. There are basically only three major improvements in ME3: Upgrading weapons using the bench, the non-stereotype gay option, and the melee controls. Pretty much everything else is worse.

I'd probably need to replay the games, but I think if it's worse it's not by as much as some series dips. It's still a pretty good game, and isn't completely jarring in contrast to ME2, but I do miss some of the stuff other games had and it just doesn't feel like there's as much to do as either ME1 or 2, especially bad in contrast with ME2 which was basically less filler, more good stuff.

Don't see how it's worse. There are things it could do better but it's probably the most solid in the series.

It's rare that I'd disagree with you, but I'd give 2 that title.

1 was the best at world building and exploration.

2 was the most well paced.

3 was the most solid and well-rounded.

Well, that's how my judgments of quality goes with the series anyway.

Couple of questions since I want to try this for myself one day:

1. How awesome of a computer do you need to play all 3 games? I don't care about graphic optimization or anything like that. If it's PS2 era quality I'm golden. XD (I don't have the cash to shell out for a 360, or the room space, otherwise I'd just go that route.)

2. If I buy Mass Effect 1/2 on Steam and 3 wherever the heck they're selling it for PC these days; will my saves from Steam carry over to ME 3 despite it not being Steam platform software?

Oh, and as a side note of amusement; I got curious and Amazon'd ME3. 154 One Star reviews, 50 Two Star Reviews; all crying 'ruined forever'

You sir, are an incredibly poor judge of quality as far as Mass Effect is concerned then. I did read your review, and I haven't seen someone work a dick that hard since Gauge got into porn.

But then, you also ignore arguments that actually poke giant holes in your logic. Hi there FTL theory.

(I am fully aware of how antagonistic this is. I was incredibly ticked off how fanboy you got in your review.)

Aahhhh, that was hilarious. He had such a shit fit, good ole DiosGX, lol.

I can't say ME3 is bad, I love it honestly, but I also loved the Super Mario Brothers movie, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Chowder, Xenosaga, Earthbound, and a number of other movies and games and tv shows that some dislike greatly. My opinion isn't going to change cuz of someone's well worded review, though it may open my eyes to aspects I may have overlooked originally. Hidoshi's 2 cents regarding the game honestly is pretty accurate, even if it sounds like  he wrote it after bioware stabbed his penis with a rusty pair of kabob skewers. Alot of the game left a salty taste in my mouth too, like the terrible TERRIBLE character animations and facial expressions, or lack thereof. I'm no writer here so I'm not going into this further, but you both have a pretty good grasp on what mass effect 3 is, even if each of your appreciation levels
differ greatly.

Anyways, premium spectre packs now up on multiplayer. 2 rares minimum, better chance for N7 super rare, 99000 credits. The victory pack sucked this time, just an equipment pack with an extra ammo. Commendation pack upgraded my valiant, hooray.

Enough of the unnecessary petty crap.

Zeron - I don't know how good of a PC you need, but you'd need to get ME3 on Origin. Your save should still carry over.

D - Oh I read Chobot's entries. You know the second was only damage control. Note she's far from beaten the game. And if she REALLY wants to talk entitled...

I don't like Chobot very much, but a lot of gamers today are entitled as hell. It's a buzzword nowadays, but my editorial has already described my beliefs on this quite accurately.

And yes, STeam saves do indeed carry over, as long as they are in the appropriate folder.

Jessica Chobot reminds me of Olivia Munn, fucking retarded and only there because boys have penises, except Olivia Munn is hot, and Jessica Chobot looks like an old lady had her body's skin pulled super tight to make it look like she has a nice figure, and uses the excess skin to stuff behind her pants and give her an ass. Seriously, I don't understand why the industry uses women like that, it's fucking obvious she isn't a real video game fan.

We need more people like you, Kyuusei, or Dice, or ....heaven help me Morgan Webb. You ladies LIKE video games. Girls like you should be promoting xbox videos or ign articles. I mean you don't see me advocating pro sports, and I bet money no sportscaster or sports news anchor is not interested in sports. I find it offensive that we get someone like her to even talk to us about video games.

AND HOW THE FUCK COULD SHE DEFEND THE GODDAMN ENDING WHEN SHE HADN'T EVEN SEEN IT WHAT THE FUCK YOU DUMB (glances at word of the week) "BALLOON"?

I think it's a travesty she's in ME3, but the fact that a shitstorm occurred after she defended the ending (regardless of if she saw it or not) is telling of your average gamer's maturity.

I agree that some fans feel 'entitled' but man I am getting sick of that word. The original entry just rubbed me the wrong way though.

I don't find her *ugly* in real life, but her character model, wtf was that. I know, you don't have to let her on the Normandy.. and I don't. Even my Paragons won't.

Also, she loves games. Isn't that why she licks PSPs?!

And - it should be noted that she hadn't even beaten the game. If I recall she was nowhere close. It seems silly to me to complain about people being unhappy with the ending when she hasn't seen it herself. Just saying.

Eh... I mean, you don't have to see the ending to know that some of the reactions are pretty overblown (like taking stuff to the FTC/BBB). Entitled is thrown around too much, but in this case it's apt. Disappointment, I feel, is fine. Some of these people are... well, being really sociopathic about it.
