Mass Effect 3 Disc

I don't have to ask if you're getting it, obviously...but who is super pumped for March 6th?

Did I take a week long vacation from work starting that very day? ...Yes!

I have barely just started Mass Effect 2, its Skyrim's fault. Everytime I make a note of playing ME2 I just end up going back to Skyrim. Skyrim was giving me trouble last week with constant freezing so I just went to Mass Effect 2 but I was never happy with my Femshep, I gave up on the 5th try, because I was really tired of the whole comic before you start the game.

Anyway, I downloaded the demo and i am glad they added some more options to make your shepard, although i still think is rather restrictive, for the women, I have never created a male shepard. In my head, Shepard is a chick, like in the vein of Ripley from Aliens, a hard ass chick.

I'm playing through ME2 again since I lost my old game saves from forever ago.

I am so very much looking forward to ME3!!!

I'm still waiting for my copy to arrive in the mail. Ah well, I guess it helps build anticipation or something. At least Amazon shipped it promptly rather than on the 9th like they were indicating.

My copy arrived today! No sooner than I had put in the codes and downloaded the stuff than the game promptly pissed me off. That's got to be a new record. Even Skyrim's crap UI didn't piss me off until I'd actually played the game a bit.

But I regress. I went to start a new game and import my ME2 game only to have it not import my character's face. As in the Shepherd I'd created for the original game and carried over to ME2. Apparently the system is bugged and it's only the fans who played from the start, the most oldest and most devoted that is, who are screwed over by it. Thanks Bioware. It's a nice touch to reward loyalty.

What really gets me is how this got thought testing. Seriously, this is a core feature and a main selling point. How do you not test for this? This is basic funcionality.

You guys keep an eye out for the mother of all Thresher Maws. That mission was awesome.

Got a Kinect after an unexpected bonus at work. Totally worth it just for the ME3 coolness. Never have to open the battle menu, just me yapping at the TV.

If anyone was wanting to buy the game used but worried about the Cerberus Network type thing, I have a code I don't need.

And I can finally play the game I payed for. And my character looks pretty much the same. It's about time, and I'm still pretty pissed about the whole thing.
