Saw the teaser last month, I wet myself a little when I saw it.

The May issue of Game Informer is going to have a feature on Mass Effect 3. Does anyone here get the magazine? It would be great if someone could scan the pages for us.

Not sure about anyone here, but if Skyrim is any indication, scans should be up within 12 hours of the issue release. Also, it's rather considerate of the Reapers to attack West Africa and the Atlantic Ocean first.

Is it just me, or is that another redesign of Shepard's N7 armour?

I think it's just you. Looks identical to the ME2 N7 armor (unless you're seeing something I don't )

EDIT: Link

Not a drastic redesign, but there are a few differences:
1. The border around the N7 logo is gone.
2. Lighter colouring and a different pattern on the inner lining
3. Strap between the shoulderpads and the chestplate have been added
And probably other things I didn't spot.

Yeah, not sure how I didn't notice the difference in the lining.

FWIW, that looks like an artist's rendering not a screenshot taken in-game.

Am I missing something?

Are the changes to the armour that important?

Not considerate, that is where farmer Reaper sowed the first amino acid on earth some 3.5 billion years ago.

I heard about a Mass Effect film months ago, and tweeted @sentuamessage to ask them to confirm it and they actually answered me on Inside Xbox, but all they did was confirm it was true and didn't have any other real details. http://yfrog.com/c9i2yj. I was under the impression it was going to be a live action film, but I guess not.

While I'm no fan of anime, it's probably better that way. A live action film would probably suck serious ass.

lol, dunno how I missed that link.. and it makes me sad cause at first I thought that Astor was just mistakingly saying "anime" instead of "animated"... but now I've come to a realisation that we have to deal with another forced Americanised anime movie.

I mean, it was amusing the first couple of times, but now it's just getting old. I mean XD I know it's pointless to be a downer on this when it's JUST been announced... but after watching every forced anime adaption released so far... they're getting progressively worse, so where will Mass Effect fit in?

Look at the brightside, maybe it will be Canadianised instead of Americanised.

You mean like Beast Wars was to Transformers?

Oh right, I keep forgetting BioWare is Canadian even though it's American owned now... but there's not really that much difference between Canada and the US when it comes to this sort of thing...

The armour in the pic is just the prerendered CG version (probably made by Blur - assuming they did the teaser).

Mass Effect 3 to have deeper RPG elements, expanded skill trees and alternative endings

I had a feeling Cerberus would be an enemy in Mass Effect 3, which makes a lot of sense if you go with the Paragon ending.

Good news about the skill trees and everything.

As for the story we have to wait and see how it plays out, can't make any comment now, i'm a bit dissapointed that my pro human Sheppard is getting chased by Cerberus, but let's wait to see how they explain that...

Well, my money's on the Reapers taking control of Cerberus somehow. Maybe the Collector Base did the whole indoctrination thing.

I'm betting it's more a case of Cerberus seeing the Reapers as a perfect opportunity to gain galactic power... if it looks like Cerberus is the one to save the galaxy from annihilation then they'll be in a primer position to gain a lot of support and pretty much take over politically. I'm sure they've been planning and orchestrating this for awhile now... though to be honest I didn't come to this though until after I read the latest chapters of Gantz in which a similar scene is being played out...

Impending doom; the main powers of the world being practically wiped out; a group of people who knew it would be happening planning ahead and enacting their plans to take over the world while at the same time fighting off the impending doom...

At least that sounds cooler to me cause then it's enemies on two sides with two different agendas instead of one controlling the other...

That sounds really good, which means it probably isn't the case


I was thinking something more simple, along the lines of:

the Illusive Man (this is for pro-Cerberus/kept the base guys) has used Shepard, but he has served his purpose and the TIM thinks he might cause trouble to him personally and or for Cerberus in the future, and must be removed.
Illusive turns on Shepard, and one of the missions mid game is to remove, arrest or kill TIM, and put Miranda in charge of Cerberus.

I would be ok if it played out like that.
Or maybe Shepard just says something about Cerberus/TIM at the trial.

Anyway... it's all speculation at this point.

I would imagine the reasoning behind the Cerberus thing is simply that they needed 10-15 hours of filler combat before the cutscene at the end where you kill the Reapers.
