    They let us preload Battlefield 3 so I assume there will be one for ME3.
    Which begs to ask the question: will they also ship early?They did if for BF3 too.

    Oh man I'm so excited. Mass Effect 3 comes out on March 6th. I have March 6th off. My gamestop is doing a midnight release. AND My college's spring break is March 4th-10th.
    Mine's March 18-25. Damn.

    what do you mean by early. for retail things always arrive before the release date (and end up sitting out back for a week), imagine the madness if they didn't. this is how every major game ends up being leaked a week early.

    Well GameStop says the shipping date is March 6th for PC CE. And Standard Shipping is like 5-10 days.

    Yeah. It'll probably arrive like 3 days after general release for those who got standard shipping.

    Gonna call the GameStop near me tomorrow to see if they have any PC CEs left. I hope they do, but I doubt there will be any. Otherwise, I'll have to get the DD.

    I'm not singling you out here, but why do so many people wait until it's nearly release day to order a limited edition item? I don't mean any disrespect when I ask this, but I really just don't understand. I had a customer the other day who was pissed off at us for no longer accepting pre-orders on the Xbox 360 version of N7 ME3, even though we ran out of copies almost two months ago.

    Because I'm sure he and many others (including I) are not ready to waste or plop money on something we don't know if we really want or if it will even be good.

    They're probably hoping that the closer to the date, the cheaper it's gonna be. Luckily, I averted that customer's fate and preordered in July.

    And on that note, it's been (and still is) a fucking long wait.

    Yeah, but that's why you pre-order early and get a refund if you end up not wanting the game. Win-Win situation.

    Ugh, I had to get it preordered to a random friend in the US, so they can ship it to me. I was to receive it as a gift and the plan was to get it ordered around Christmas. (I was going to buy it online, as there are no local game stores near my current residence, however I didn't have a credit card until just recently) It wasn't until a few weeks ago that I was told that they didn't even bother looking into it until now. Had to order the CE from some random American Best Buy store near a close friend.
    Who knows when I'll actually get to play the game.

    Yes because retailers make you pay the full price right then and there when preordering and it isn't refundable at all.

    The minimum down for preorders at gamestop is 5 dollars. Five fucking dollars. And it's completely refunded if you cancel your preorder.

    Pre-order is free online too. No money paid when I reserved it, no money paid when I cancelled it.

    Hey so has this happened to anyone?

    Over the course of a match I started to lose functionality of various actions and items. First my assault rifle stopped doing damage to enemies, then my shotgun, then my powers, then melee. I could still fire/launch powers or melee but there wouldn't be any affect on the enemy. Then I also became unable to pick up ammo, and my ammo didn't resupply between each round either. Then doing actions using the space bar pretty much stopped working. I could sprint and take cover, but I would automatically pop back out of cover after three seconds. In addition I couldn't use the space bar to do anything else such as revive people or do objectives. By the sixth round or so all I could really do was run around and distract enemies so my teammates could kill them. My two other teammates didn't have this problem though.

    Sounds like lag? I've noticed when I get lag spikes my guns do/powers do no damage.

    Well, that is if Mass Effect 3 has sex scenes.

    Man Lokis were piss easy since I ran engineer with Tali.

    Get one of them down to health bar, AI hack him. When the other lokis/other dudes take down his shields, either hack again or have Tali hack.

    I'm playing on Insanity so they all have shields AND armour. I'm having to switch between Heavy Disruptor and Tungsten ammo to kill them quick enough and the hacked lokis don't do shit. They just stand there like retards until they die.

    Out of curiosity I really want to see what Tali looks like under her mask.

    But I know a lot of people don't.

    So I hope Bioware has something pop up in the very beginning of the game before you play "DO YOU WANT TO SEE TALI'S FACE?! YES - NO"

    Everyone wins

    They always have shields and armour don't they?

    I take cover, concentrate on one motherfucker, and then hack.

    Also hacked lokis are great. Seriously.

    No. Sometimes shields but usually no armour until Hardcore then both on insanity

    Hacked lokis don't do anything to me.

    Are you sure you're not confusing YMIR with LOKI?

    Naw, Loki's still Loki.
    I guess I just don't see where you're coming from, I never had an issue with YMIRs or Lokis on my insanity playthrough.

    And hacked lokis do attack other dudes, I don't see why that aint working for you.

    I'd rather see the Pyro's face.

    Tali's mask gives her a sense of unknown but she's so open and down to earth. So I'd rather never see an official face.

    oh god, I just unlocked the claymore and put on a mods that give 25% greater damage and 50% greater accuracy. it can 1 hit kill assault troopers from one side of the map to the other, so it's basically a sniper rifle that you dont have to aim.

    it can also kill an atlas in 6-8 shots lmao
