    I have only literally just started 2 so this will probably work out quite well for me! I do like to play these to the fullest so take my sweet time doing all side quests and missions.

    Eiren you are on the ball this week with sequel threads, good stuff. I will look forward to this game more than any other release next year i think. So far, this, Deus Ex then Elder scrolls are the big 3 for me.

    Good games, but need to be "bigger" it's a pity you look at the map of the galaxy and think ooo lots of exploration...but no :-( In fact Mass Effect 2 has less exploration than 1! Great stories but too linear (even if you do side missions all based in only a few places) It's not like every system has a space station with own plots/stories/missions. Little point in using the rover to explore.

    Really looking forward to this, i've completed both the others several times. Hopefully some more DLC for the second one still to come to keep us going, although it's going to have it's work cut out to top shadowbroker :thumbsup:

    Text taken from dealspawn.com

    Mass Effect 3 features a new class for us to explore; the Heavy Melee option, which takes advantage of the third game’s newfangled close-quarters combat. That’s according to Spanish magazine, MarcaPlayer, whose exclusive preview on Bioware’s climactic conclusion to their genre-busting space opera sheds new light on what might be in store come the end of the year.

    The Heavy Melee class – name I expect mauled in translation – seems to have been included to showcase the new melee system Bioware is implementing in Mass Effect 3. I’m expecting brutal takedowns – and hopefully stealth assassinations – with a new SWAT-turn maneuver mooted, too. The cover-system is said to be reminiscent of Max Payne, and Shepard can roll or jump “into small holes in the ground”. Quite what that means is unclear, but don’t worry; I doubt Bioware is turning Mass Effect into whack a’ mole.

    According to the rest of the article, Bioware is mulling space-battles. At this late stage in development, I very much doubt they’re only considering including such a feature – which would require a hell of a lot of developing and testing – but they’re obviously unsure on whether it’s fit for duty. Confirmed locations include London and New York on your earthbound ventures, a Salarian world – Mordin! – a moon and even Mars.

    As we all know, Cerberus is hellbent on offing Shepard, and though the details of this sudden breakup remain foggy, we do know the pro-human organization has deployed mechs and ninja-esque shock-troopers to eliminate him. The mechs apparently feature target-specific weak points, and Shepard can slice off arms or shatter armor. Combat in general is described as “more dynamic” and 10 to 15 percent faster.

    But Cerberus isn’t the prime enemy in the third entry, as the Reapers finally take center stage, emerging from the depths of space to remove all organic life from the galaxy, as is their custom. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from five hundred meter long vessels to individuals like Harbinger, who tops out at two kilometers in length.

    The rest of the details include up to five mods available for each weapon, much more loot to pillage, new skills for classes like the Engineer who can build and repair turrets, and seemingly confirmation from Bioware that we won’t be seeing the return of the Mako. In fact, we won’t be driving at all. Which is somewhat sad.

    I'm already worked up and excited about Portal 2. Bringing this game into my mind is almost too much to handle. Portal and ME2 - the best two games of the last 15 years.

    Not sure where to put this as we now have 2 threads, other one here;

    http://www.avforums.com/forums/pc-gaming/1445242-mass-effect-3-a.html

    Looking for a release date for ME3, I found this;

    Not sure if I like the sound of that.

    Edit; early 2012 confirmed

    I hope this is a bit of scaremongering as the storyline and side missions are what made ME2 so addictive. I personally thought the shooter side of things was already spot on too - loads of weapons and different biotic and tech moves.

    It's going to be like Dragon's Lair... press X at the right moment, then hold the bumpers etc etc. Also you will need to control it via the Kinect dance mat.

    I see Mass Effect 3, at least on the Xbox, will support Kinect - one of the first AAA, mainstream, games to do so. This will be interesting to watch. Will Kinect support be ported to the PC? What will it add - and how will it interface - with the game?

    Did you see the video of it?

    He was using the Kinect to control Shepard and shoot. Also it was reacting to his voice commands... so he was saying 'Liara move up' and 'Liara fire singularity' and his NPCs were following his commands.

    It was pretty smart... but not for me.

    Here's the video:

    No I missed that - I was at work at the time which 'blocks' videos.

    Sounds fairly good - I suppose the proof of the pudding is how effectively it works in practise. I wonder if the PC will get a port of these features?
