Sorry Mass Effect 3 huge fan but I'll wait for a price drop in a couple months after release. Twisted Metal, SSX and the Vita launch are taking all my money.

The majority of ME players played as a soldier. It's messed up but true

Messed up? ME2 was barely an RPG anyway. It was a TPS with rpg-like elements.

How in the world could people play this RPG that uses third-person shooter combat mechanics as the shooter class! Those people are clearly inferior human beings! I heard that if you play as the Soldier, you don't even get to engage in conversation with NPCs, customize your gear, or even level up! It's like you're not playing an RPG at all!

Also did someone just whip out a Katana... Space Ninjas?

I would say something negative, but Meal Gear Solid 4 had a terrible multiplayer component too, and I loved that game.

@EchoEcho: It's more the fact that it's pretty dumb to play a bland-ass class like Soldier in Mass Effect. There's a whole bunch of powers you could be messing with to make combat more varied in interesting, instead of opting for SHOOT DUDES SHOOT DUDES SHOOT DUDES.

Could be cool but I'll reserve judgement until I actually play it.

I like this very much. I see some pretty nice moves there. Most anticipated game of 2012 :)

Posted by EchoEcho

@Skanker: Are you seriously going to make that argument? That is like saying anyone who plays a Fighter in D&D is "doing it wrong" because Wizards get SPELLS, yo! Having a bunch of powers is cool. Getting to use the full variety of guns is also cool. I played an Infiltrator in ME1 and ME2, but my most satisfying moments in combat were popping off headshots with my sniper rifle, not using my tech powers. To each their own -- if people are having fun shooting dudes in ME, why in the hell is that something to criticize them for?

Some people you know, like the shooting mechanics in ME2 and 3...and soldiers get powers too.

Clearly you've never considered that there are just as many abilities with each of the classes. I don't play soldier, but I get the appeal. And if you're really going to reduce it to just "SHOOT DUDES SHOOT DUDES SHOOT DUDES," you might as well go all the way and say all the classes are just "CLICK ON DUDES CLICK ON DUDES CLICK ON DUDES."

If those cutscenes with Shepard don't show your Shepard I will be extremely, EXTREMELY disappoint.

Do i get to shoot the guy claiming to be Shepard?

Oh my god that looks fantastic.

I would totally buy this for PC if EA wasn't forcing Origin down my throat. There's no way in hell I will support Origin. In my mind, it's just as bad as Ubisoft's ridiculous uPlay and always online DRM. I don't believe in pirating games myself, even though it's very easy. It's almost certain that once again, pirates will have the best version of the game. Publishers will never learn, unless their name is CD Projekt Red. Shame cause I really wanted to play this. Oh well, I'd rather support publishers and developers that trust their customers and give them the best experience possible.

I was hoping for Drell or Geth classes as well, anyone else with me on this?

Edited by drac96

@Blood_for_the_blood_God: There are Drell in the multi-player. You can see one on a recent episode of GT.TV. Also, they're mentioned in this article.

Posted by hermberger

So I haven't heard any details about multiplayer, but is there no PVP? Just co-op/horde mode?

Except for the fact that the generic soldier style class is the most overpowered class in just about every Bioware game since KOTOR. (can't speak for BG since I haven't played it)

Also, go screw yourself for using that tone.

Cooperative multiplayer? I can get behind that. I'm relieved they didn't try to do CoD: Mass Effect.

Yes, why would anyone play as the shooter class when the core combat mechanics of the game was that of a shooter?  Unbelievable.

Asari Vanguard? Oh hell yes :D I wasnt going to play the co op but being able to be an asari vanguard Biowre has won me.

Posted by jackelbeaver

good job throwing in a preview of the speech from the end of the game bioware, also ahhh your guys will get to line up with sheperd at the end ahhhhh (I wonder if they let you customize armor or faces at all?)

Posted by PenguinDust

So does Shepard send the team (players) out into these maps? If so, what if my Shepard has girly parts? Will the mission assignment look different for each player depending on what their ME3 Shepard looks like or will everyone get the same generic Bro-Shepard? Or, is that bit in the video just there for effect and it's not in the actual game?

All-in-all, it looks pretty entertaining but I'm still not much of an online multiplayer person these days. I have nothing against this, and hope it's as good as the trailer makes it out to be.

Yes, that's right. Bioware didn't want to turn it into a competitive multiplayer game - core of the series has always been the Shepard single-player story so this is just meant to support it.

I suspect that if this is well-received, the next entry in the franchise, if there is one, will have more multiplayer options. Testing the waters with co-op first.

Posted by RVonE

Absolutely unsubstantiated and I'm probably just projecting, but looking at the buzz around this game compared to ME2 before its release I get the feeling people are less excited about this third installment.

Posted by Nevos

That actually looks rather entertaining, though I still find it odd how many publishers want multiplayer in games. I never imagined anything like this being added to Mass Effect when I first played it.

So, let me get this straight. Claiming that a class is overpowered is "silently cursing Bioware" and telling you, random internet person, to not make a jackass statement is "beating down a girl".

I told YOU man/woman/thing to go screw yourself. Oh, but I guess I should feel bad because you're a gurrrrrl gamr right? You are no better than the immature little XBox live brats that piss their pants every time they hear something that sounds like a female on the mic. Congrats on contributing to setting the females that happen to enjoy games back a few years with your silly mentality.

Once again, go screw yourself.

Since it looks like I can play as a Krogan I'm pretty sure I will try this out at least once.

Looks pretty fun even if it is just another horde mode.

There was a drell in that video. I'm with you on the Geth though. Even though this is stupid and I'll never play it.

Yeah...

And that 70% of people who picked the shooting class go on forums and complain about how much more of a shooter Mass Effect 2 was.

But in regards to the trailer....man.

Hopefully they let you pick Krogan and he has Biotic Charge...that would be incredible.

Posted by Chris2KLee

Looking good, co-op multiplayer in an ME universe looks pretty sweet.

Posted by jorbear

Yeah, this sounds okay.

"9 - 3 - 12"

It was okay until you had to ruin it, video.

Posted by PurplePartyRobot

So, is this game getting pushed back to September or something? Maybe I am misinterpreting the "9 - 3 - 12" date?

Posted by FieldCommanderRick

That would be day-month-year.

I think the Bombcast crew almost exclusively played Soldier, except Vinny on a 2nd playthrough. It is the most straightforward way to play and for people on the clock I guess I can see wanting to streamline gameplay between games as much as possible. Though I agree with you in that given options that seems the most boring way to go through the ME universe.

EDIT - And I think the vast majority played as soldier as well.

They spelled Sentinel wrong....

Along with Cluster "Gernade" for the Drell Vanguard. Oh well, maybe it's a clever way to show how language changed in nearly 2 hundred years.

What? I can't be an elcor?

You win!

EDIT: What about Hanar?

I'd love to play as an Elcor Heavy with my very own turret, or as a Hanar Spectre, but I'd love to play as a Volus Biotic God. Maybe those drugs didn't enhance biotic powers but supressed them? Guy couldn't even stand effectively after all.

Then again, I'd love to play as the last survivor of the DC1938 system. The one rescued by the MSV Kent and who breathes Krypton. I'm thinking Charge, Adrenaline Rush and Incinerate (and yes being a tech, biotic, combat combo) Overpowered? Definitely.

Maybe you shouldn't use that kind of tone when I said nothing of the sort. Ass. :3

It's using the European date format, not American.

Everything I've seen about this game in leaks makes it look like Dragon Age 2: Mass Effect Edition.

Strap yourselves in for more creepy fan pandering, courtesy of Bioware.

Soldier was also the most played class by a huge margin, they released statistics.
 
Also, heaven forbid someone have different interests than you! How dare they! Everyone knows they put the other classes in as a joke and there's only one real way to play! Derp derp derp, shut the fuck up.
