    Update April 30th

    To complete the article series, and conclude my forum thread rather nicely, the editors at GameInformer made a podcast to answer some of the questions people have aired since the series started. Not much of what they say is new and there are no Bioware staff in the podcast. But if you can't be bothered to read the magazine article, I'd say this is a good complement to it. Only new thing I heard in it was that you're suppose to be able to grab dudes over cover if you're sitting behind the same one.

    Update April 21st

    PSM3's article have been scanned and, while very little is new, they are confident to say that " Liara will be part of your standard crew" and that you will be able to "sex her up till she turns blue(r)in the face!". Yes. Smooth...

    Update April 20th

    Two screenshots have been published. Most interesting part is the description: "Both of the screens highlight Commander Shepard fighting Cerberus forces on the Salarian homeworld"

    Mass Effect: Evolution
    Mass Effect: Evolution
    Update April 11th
    The hinted Game Informer reveal was a preview of the final issue of Mass Effect: Evolution. No wonder the Illusive Man is such a racist. It's always over a woman. Next update is the 13th.

    Update April 10th 
    High quality scans have slipped out. Take a look at them before they're taken down
    • Normandy SR2 have been taken by the Alliance and is being taken apart, examined and refitted to suit them
    • The beginning of ME3 is only a few months after the Suicide Mission
    • Earth is pretty much fucked from the get-go. The goal revolves more around retaking the planet
    • The means to do this are very much unclear and there seem to be several ones to retake Earth
    • Oh shit, son! A female Cerberus assassin with a sword and a glove that seem to hint at genetically engineered biotics
    • The means to gain the support of an allied race will not be as simple as doing a simple loyalty mission this time. It's possible you need to wipe out an entire race to gain the support of another
    • New Game + will be a breed of both ME1 and 2, using the "continue play" from ME2 while also allowing New Game + from ME1.
    • Shepard will be able to roll and leap over object without having to duck behind them (also, ladders. No more giant ramps to get to an upper level)
    • Movement while in cover and in combat is suppose to be more fluid and fast paced
    • Melee will have a bigger focus and each class will have a unique close-quarters attack (do I hear biotic falcon punch, anyone?)
    • You'll be able to pick up enemy weapons
    • Why The Illusive Man hunts Shepard is not going to be revealed, but he has a reason
    • Thresher Maw vs Reaper wrestling is mentioned as scale in events that will take place on the battlefield
    • Sanders is a regular Alliance soldier who will be about as oblivious to what goes on in ME3 as a new player would be who haven't played the first two games
    • Hudson mentions how an MMO that takes place after the finale of ME3 would "make sense", though no word about any plans about new Mass Effect related games was mentioned

     

    Update April 9th

    New pictures surfaced
    • First one shows Shepard standing with Kaidan and Liara. Looks like Kaidan have gotten a haircut and he seems to sport a heavier armor type now. Liara looks like she came straight from Lair of the Shadow Broker
    • Second one shows Reapers patrolling a city with large spotlights, hunter-killer style
    • Third one shows husks and what appears to be some kind of Reaper constructed assault husk, made from a Batarian
    • Last one is suspected to be a corrupted Keeper and looks like a bomb on four legs
     

     Well hello there, Ash!
     Well hello there, Ash!
    April 8th
    • Game starts out with Shepard on Earth, standing trial for what happens in Arrival
    • The reapers will attack during this process
    • Shepard fights his way to get off the planet, to mobilize allied armies to fight back
    • Shepard is definitely not with Cerberus anymore since it seems they aim to kill him now
    • Weapons will be similar to Mass Effect 2 but will be possible to customize with addons such as scopes
    • Squad mates so far are Liara, Ash/ Kaidan, Garrus and James Sanders (I speculate he's a relative to Kahlee Sanders from the books. And no, he's not the sniper.)
    • Other confirmed characters are Legion, Mordin, Anderson, Udina and Wrex (depending on whether they're alive or not, and I'm not sure they will be party members)
    • Several endings
    • Bigger freedom in choosing skills, distributing skill points and there will be specializations later on in the game
    • All classes can carry any weapon this time but will have limited slots - while the Soldier will be able to carry all types at the same time
    • ME3 will ship with an interactive comic book across all platforms.
    • Bioware seem more keen to keep the lid on excessive spoilers this time.
    • No multiplayer


    Also, GameInformer have a site page that seem to get updated with the information from the paper on the 11th.
     
    Lastly, please note that just because a character's name isn't in the article, doesn't mean he, or she, isn't in the game. As mentioned before: Bioware is going to be a lot more restrictive with revealing details this time around.
     


    Personally, I'm effin stoked for this game. Can't wait to kick some Reaper butt with Garrus, Liara and Tali at my side. I might just give Kaidan a chance even if he was such a dick in ME2.
    The holidays just can't come sooner.

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

    Edit: now that' I've calm down a bit from my initial excitement, I am so fucking stoked to see Liara and Garrus confirmed. Ash can kiss my ass, she dumped me, but the only thing that worries me slightly is the lack of confirmed Wrex companion. I suppose with where he is in his own story it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for him to drop everything on Tuchanka and join my crew, but goddamn it I want him back!

    Also glad to see Mordin and Legion are back, we didn't get nearly enough time with Legion and I really want to see where Mordin goes with the genophage data. I take it that Sanders is the British sniper from the trailer? I figured he'd be a companion considering Bioware doesn't waste trailers using shit that has no bearing on the game itself. If a character shows up in a Bioware trailer, you can be 90% sure that the person will be in the game somewhere. Now for gameplay...

    The choice of weapon types is a much better decision, I feel. I loved playing Vanguard and using the uber-powered Biotic Charge, but sometimes it wasn't tactically viable, so I'd be stuck plinking at enemies with a heavy pistol at long range. Using Vanguard with Shotgun + Assault Rifle (with scope, of course) would definitely be a more advantageous load-out from the start. Do you know if there is any word on whether or not class importing from ME2 will provide us a chance to change our base class?

    Overall, for class skills and specializations it seems they're making it a mix of ME1 and ME2, which is probably better than the really linear upgrade path of ME2.

    Sounds too good to be true. Weapons customization is HUGE, every game should have that feature.

    If you look at the characters, note that the ones that aren't confirmed as squad members are characters you couldn't romance. While the ones confirmed as squad members, save for Sanders, are characters that you could.
    I'm confident Tali will be at Shepard's side.

    Thank fuck Tali isn't in that list. She was beginning to get on my nerves, so I killed her off. Stupid OCD Quarians spawning the Geth >___>
    As for gameplay, I just hope there is more exploration. I don't want it to be focused entirely on Earth.

    @selbie: From what I've gathered, you'll only be on Earth in the prologue and when it's time to hit back. No idea how much time goes between that, of course, but Shepard need to mobilize the other races.

    Fuck yeah, Garrus confirmation is half of the squadmate confirmations I need before going on a media blackout (like that'll happen)!

    Everything else seems to be as expected. Mobilizing the races, more RPG elements, no multiplayer, thankfully.

    Kind of disappointed in the Cerberus revelation, I had hoped they would be smarter then that. And yeah, what the fuck happened to Ashley. I'll be having Kaiden anyway.  Wonder how much time has passed since the end of ME2 and the beginning of ME3.

    @General_D23:  There was never a nailed down time lapse between Arrival and ME3 but there was word that the destruction of the Alpha relay would delay the Reapers by months or up to a year.
    Which makes me believe Shepard will have spent some time in jail, or have at least been stripped of his ship and resources, while awaiting trial. Making Arrival pretty much a waste of time.

    Admittedly, we kind of already knew that after playing it, but nice to get confirmation, I suppose.

    I could see Shepard being taken in a year after ME2, right when the Reapers arrive, and another year passing with Shepard in prison while the Reapers set up for the long haul that inevitably comes with exterminating the galaxy the old-fashioned way.

    @Dany: Pretty much squat since the "reaper threat" was turned into an attack of one reaper and an armada of geth.
    Only people that actually know are the ones around Shepard. The others can't really confirm more than that they have seen one reaper, and they killed him in the battle at the Citadel.

    Hmm...

    The Alliance leadership seems to know. The geth know, the quarians, thanks to Tali, at least acknowledge it. The krogan under Wrex are probably aware too. The batarian government may or may not know. Because of the events of Retribution, Aria from Omega seems to have some knowledge if I remember correctly, though that is dubious ally to be fair.

    I think I'm coming around on the 'Council knows and is doing something behind the scenes' theory, though I could see Bioware going either way with that.

    Sooo stoked for this. Now I just have to go back and replay the first 2 games because of a hard drive failure that killed my Shepard.

    Game starts out with Shepard on Earth, standing trial for what happens in Arrival

    I wonder how they'll handle that if you didn't play Arrival.

    Shepard is definitely not with Cerberus anymore since it seems they aim to kill him now

    Why? If you give The Illusive Man the Reaper base you should still be friendly, and even if you didn't, he my not like you, but it's still in humanity's best interest to keep you alive. Cerberus might be full of spiteful jerks, but I don't think they would be so shortsighted.

    That was my hope, too. I destroyed the base, but really, the Reapers are still coming and there really shouldn't be any infighting for the moment. I had hoped the Illusive Man would've at least called off payback until after the Reapers were dealt with.

    Well one never knows in what mysterious ways the Illusive Man works. If you blew up the base, I'm sure he's pissed at you for that. Not to mention the fact that EDI is unlocked now and give Shepard access to sensitive Cerberus data.
    If you give him the station, one could guess that he has no need for Shepard anymore and wants him gone for the same reason as above.

    Also, since you turn yourself into Alliance hands after Arrival, I'm sure he's considered too loyal to them for The Illusive Man's liking, or perhaps a liability, again going back to EDI.

    I don't know, I'm just guessing on this. I could never figure that man out.

    What I hear has me excited...I still have a million other questions I want answered, but I can wait for the game itself to answer those for me.
    Me, I hope the game focus' more on "gathering allied armies" rather than recruiting squadmates...obviously recruiting Kahlee (I'm so glad I read those books) and maybe that British sniper would be good to sprinkle in throughout the game, but I wanna delegate between some Krogan death squads, and the Rachni swarm, and the Quarian fleet, and the Geth strike force, and the Turian armada...let me make promises and deals (ala Fable 3 style) and assign them certain tasks during the final counter- attack against the Reapers.
    Should I send the Krogans up the middle path, when they may have to encounter my Rachni forces along the way, is that going to cause problems, or do they trust me enough not to let it be a problem? This is the stuff I want. I have a team of the most badass individuals, give them roles on my ship (Tali can run engineering, Mordin can create upgrades, ect.) while some of them can join me on away missions (Grunt, Jack, Legion).

    I can want all day but im just happy to see they're starting to let us know what to expect.

    Still...is Kasumi going to be there waiting for me?

    No Thane? That makes me sad. I felt like he could turn into a really well-developed character. I guess we can't have them all though.

    Mordin and Legion being back are awesome.  Liara as a party member again, also awesome, but where the hell is Tali?  I wanted my love interest from the first game to fight with my romance option from the second game.  The winner gets some good good lovin'...the loser has to hold the camera. 


    I'm glad Shepard is at odds with Cerberus.  I never liked or trusted any of them. 

    The biggest question I have is what irritation will replace the Mako missions from ME1 or scanning for minerals in ME2 in this third outing?  What's going to be the game element that pisses me off?

    I severely doubt that list is exhaustive.

    I wouldnt be surprised if they kept some squadmates as a surprise.

    A bit like Legion.

    I still hope Tali is in though :P
