"This is loco!"
By the way the iOS game is actually pretty darn good, worth playing even without the extra stuff for ME3
The game itself is £4.99 too, already a premium price for an iOS game without the mirco-payments. At least there's no ads, I guess. And it is good. Far better than Galaxy, and actually quite impressive for an iOS title graphically.
I see. If an iOS game is 3D I generally stay away as I'm absolutely crap with them. If it goes down to £0.70 (which it will), I might pick it up then.
I started playing, and had a lot of fun.
I did the obligatory visit to everyone in the Normandy, asking about his problems, whats going on, how is everything working. It was like returning to my ... ship, I was captain again of this ship doing missions, and its great.
So I've looked around and I've definitely effed up my 360 save files for both ME1 and 2. That means 3 characters have now disappeared. I'll be honest, I'm pretty disappointed by that. I had a look on the ME saves thing, but it's hard to find my paragon character - no romance in ME1, 'Focus on Sovereign' at the end and Paragon throughout 2. I might have better luck with my renegade character, but...man, I'm not going to complete the trilogy with my Shepard.
Tried it, but there are a few too many variables. Have found one for my renegade run-through, so that's something. I guess if I put some time in, I could re-create it through the save editor, but there seems to be a *lot* of flags to do. Something to do on Friday while I wait for the post!
ME3 wouldn't recognise my character's facial customisation, so my renegade male Shep, who has been with me from ME1 all the way through has had a slight redesign, I think I did a pretty good job at it though!
So far I'm enjoying the game, although I have found myself doing a lot of to-ing and fro-ing around the citadel in pursuit of small tasks and conversations with former friends/allies/enemies. The game still does an excellent job at remembering what you did in the previous games, it's gotten to the point now though, where NPC's are asking "Remember me? You did blahdeblah and saved my thingybob back over in wotisland?" And I honestly can't remember who the hell they are, or what they're banging on about.
I feel like I'm skirting around the main storyline a little at the moment, I don't want to rush it, because I get the feeling once you get to a certain point in the story, you'll get rushed forward at a breakneck pace. Despite the urgency that's there, I still like to potter around the galaxy.
Also as I mentioned in the other thread - I'm really enjoying the MP so far, which is a welcome surprise.
So far (10 minutes in…) my biggest issue is the FOV. It is extremely tight, just like dead space. It wouldn't be an issue if I could plug a controller in and sit back from the screen, but that's not possible. This is really ruining it for me.
Also it seems that, although there is a separate voice for female shepard, they didn't bother with a different set of animations for her.
The cover system is actually more annoying in this one. It's much too easy to get flanked and then stuck, unable to shoot people either side of you.
Can anyone tell me how do you get From Ashes DLC? Can you buy it direct through game itself, or do you need to go to Origin? Or, some other way?
Also, can you change class if you import ME2 save?
Can't wait to get my hands on it, and knowing that I'll have to wait 7-10 more days until mine arrives is driving me nuts :(
Thanks for the good news!

They say The Witcher 2 has tough decisions to make and they're right but I think ME3 tops this.
SPOILER, mark to read
I just shot Mordin in the back and betrayed the entire Krogan race.
I don't remember the last time I felt that terrible about something I did in a game and the worst part is that I still believe it was the right thing (for this incarnation of Shepard, anyways).
