- The choices made in the trail at the beginning of Mass Effect 3 will determine the tone of that playthrough.

All of this sounds awesome. Its seems that they are really listening to the gamers.

Hopefully more romance options means we can be a true pimp and have more than one honeydip

Thane was my favorite. I replayed the whole game. And kept redoing the final mission till he was left alive.

I don't have any of the DLC unfortunately. Kasumi seems like an awesome character.

Yeah she is. The DLC was definitely worth it. Kasumi is not only a good character outside of battle, she is really good in battle as well.

This is why I'm a diehard Bioware fan. They take fans seriously. Casey Hudson who is in charge of the Mass Effect project always listens to complains and tries to fit them into sequels with this series. I think Mass Effect 3 is going to be one of the greatest games of all time.

Sounds good indeed.

I hope they hit a homerun with the mini-games this time, because those in the first games sucked.

I wish Bioware made this 4 characters instead of 3, and just amp up the difficulty.

Would make for more strategy in battles.
