Welcome to THE EXACT SAME THING everyone else said a month ago. Talk about being late to the party.

Talk about being a giant asshole.  Guess what, dude, people play games at different rates than you.

Ah cmon, I meant it more sarcastically than anything. Besides, I'm pretty sure someone actually used the same wording he did regarding the ending. It's just....so exact. You can't honestly tell me you didn't think the same thing when you read his opinion.

...Actually, didn't you say something like this regarding the ending too, John?

John's not talking about the guy's reaction to the ending, he's saying don't hassle the guy because he's late to the party. That's not cool. Not everyone can get on this stuff right away. And I actually DIDN'T think the same thing. I thought "Oh good, another person who agrees with me. Awesome!"

*grumblegrumble*people got no sense of humor*grumble*

Sorry draak, was only busting chops. Can we be fwends again?

:)
(it's sarcasm only in a humorous manner, I sincerley wasn't aiming to piss anyone off, it was all meant in good fun, which draak actually seemed to accept based on his reply)

You do realise that sarcasm translates pretty poorly in text, right? Just checking. ;)

Chill out, guys.

@ Back on topic

MP is surprisingly fun, even with random disconnects. I lucked out and got an Asari Adept in a veteran pack, so I've been basically setting up biotic detonations everywhere. Got a Batarian in our group and the heavy melee reminds me so much of a falcon punch.

Now to get that Salarian Engineer...

What do you spend credits on? Generally, your best bet is to nab spectre packs and pray for a good buy. Also, salarian engineer is the best meatshield ever. Decoy fucking owns.

Geth Infiltrator is pretty crack, just know that small stages are your enemy. You wanna be shooting before anything is close enough to hit you. Otherwise, hunter mode will get you killed.

The shield reduction from hunter mode is actually not too bad, since apparently it only affects your base shields - the increases you get from putting points into advanced hardware aren't reduced by it.

Yes, but my point still stands. If you're close to enemies, that small shiled reductiom could mean the difference between making it to cover or convulsing on the floor waiting for a res. Course, hunter mode could save you from turning a corner into a shitfest of enemies. It haa its ups and downs.

I haven't even touched gold yet, though silver isn't that hard as long I stick to my trusty Geth Infiltrator. I remember thinking even bronze was tough a few weeks ago, and now it feels incredibly easy. How much of a leap up is gold from silver?

Super enemies start on wave 3, they take more damage, deal more damage, are more aggressive, and in larger numbers. Expect no less than 6 Phantoms on an extraction round of gold cerberus, nevermind the atluses (atli?). Geth are really fun, they throw hunters at you all day long, which are arguably more annoying than anything else outside of primes, and even then, primes are fewer in number.

For anyone that hasn't done gold yet, decoy got nerfed a bit, so have fun now.

Made a couple of attempts on gold. The first ended disastrously, with the whole team executed by phantoms on wave 6 in Firebase Dagger, so I decided to do it the easy way (White/Geth/Gold). It was surprisingly simple - even with no communication everyone knew what they were doing, and aside from the objectives we just hid in the corner of the room at the bottom of the map spamming powers while the Salarian put decoy up.

Finally beat ME3 yesterday (late to the party, I know... playing FFXII-2). Enjoyed the game, don't understand all the hate against the ending (c'mon, I can name countless games with far worse endings!). I'm not bothered by the Tali reveal, and she's still the greatest character in the series, IMO. Overall, not as amazing as ME2, but probably not for the same reasons people are saying.

My biggest gripe with the game is the move back to centralization. I loved ME2s decentralized feel, you have a number of different "home bases", that you get to play around in. Omega was especially cool, but the Asari merchant planet was breathtaking, and there were a few other smaller ones too. The citidel got old, I wanted more varried community locales. On the same note, I wish they had changed things up a little more from ME2. For instance, I liked the concept behind the Mako driving sections in ME1, but agree that they were poorly executed. I was hoping they'd have something a little similar in ME3, but maybe with the Kodiak's... instead of just the boring planet scans. Too many of the side missions were just planet scans, instead of raiding bases or rescuing people, it made the game feel rushed out the door.

That said, I enjoyed the experience. Not GOTY material like ME2, but great none-the-less. And *GASP* I'm okay with the ending as is, I know I'm in the extreme minority, but I actually think it fits with a lot of the themes of the series. Well, at least it was a hell of a lot better than the ending of Fallout 3, but I know that's not saying much.
