This. I didn't have this problem in ME1 because I could set how I wanted to play by raising the Intimidate skill (my Shepard is 70/30 Renegade/Paragon, Jerkass heroine extraordinaire) rather than having to farm Renegade points.

For a while with ME2 I'd just farm all the easy/meaningless Renegade points (Zaeed's loyalty mission, intimidate options with merchants) and add those to my bonus from importing an ME1 character. But really, it's so bad, especially when you need HUGE amounts of Renegade or Paragon points to make the special dialog choices when they really matter.

Thank goodness for save game editors. Opening that and giving my Renegade score a 300 point boost made the game significantly more fun, without having to make choices that my Shepard wouldn't naturally make (like leaving Dr. Archer's brother with Cerberus at the end of Project Overlord, or losing the loyalty of Miranda or Jack after completing both loyalty missions).

Hopefully ME3's changes to the Renegade/Paragon system will alleviate this problem, allowing me to take the Intimidate or Charm options as I see fit, as feels natural for "my" particular iteration of Commander Shepard.

The actual footage used isn't (likely ripped from the Space Edition), but the trailer itself is made much like any other AMV's it appears.

The footage is what I meant, not the actual video. I was meaning there was no way the footage was fake.

well kinda why couldnt the premiere be today xD 2days of no life :P

but still im kinda pissed at the demo at the moment ^^ since im lev110 and still I cant unlock the damn widow, reverant assult rifle or even the pistol m-6 kat or something like that.... and its like 100-200 veteran packs already >__<

last time I got like 3x veteran packs one after another... and I got 2x the same upgrade male-soldier class level up..... but I already have this char at max with max look upgrades long ago.... so it pissed me off seriously (it should be like if you get something to max it shouldnt appear ever again)

it made me angry becouse after sooo many packs I cant get it... while I see a level 5-10 with a widow or reverant it seriously makes me angry.... for me it should be like in ME shops :P you get credits and buy what you need for a certain ammount of them (like new weps above 50-100k credits) since ya work on the battlefield to the fullest in order to get some credits and then it drops such bomb as you buy the veteran packs (maybe in full game we will get like recruit,veteran,expert packs)

Not obsessed enough. The video is not available outside America.


They are going to have to try real hard to get the Japanese back on board. The ME3 trailers on NicoNico barely have a dozen hits so far.

Considering that Paragon Lost is directly marketed by Funimation, I'm not sure it's targeted towards the Japanese. Rather, it's similar to the Batman: Gotham Knight, Halo Legends and the Animatrix of being alternative media, and not necessarily focused on the anime crowd.

A non spoilerific podcast I found:

Skip to 52:00, no spoilers.

-Thought ME1 was OK, hated ME2 (all levels felt like space dungeons, too streamlined), really liked ME3. He said it was the best out of the three
-Really liked the gameplay and levels. only some "go from Point A to Point B" in ME3, but for the most part, they do a really good job making the levels more spectacular and less linear. Areas are also a lot wider
-RPG elements are back and much better, finally figured out a way to combine RPG/shooter and make it feel coherent.
-ME3 really feels like the most confident game Bioware has done since KotOR
-Really loved the story, they resolve a lot of of really cool, long-standing arcs from previous games. Fans will love how plot arcs are resolved.
-Really loved the ending, and loved that Bioware took a interesting bold choice. Agreed that some people might not like, but he personally, loved it and felt it tied all the knots to the Mass Effect trilogy.
Edit:

Also, this is one reason why I don't trust supposed "spoilers" on the net: Conflicting accounts. On the "From Ashes" DLC for example, two players who have supposedly played it early said different things. One says "the DLC seems important to the game", while the other says "he feels there are no holes in the game that need filling by DLC". Which is why I'm reserving judgement until I actually get the game for that one, because sometimes it's difficult to tell who's telling the truth, and who's yanking your chain.

Given the nature of the DLC, I'd think that how much it is needed would depend on how much the player has dug into the background. The deeper you dug, the more questions were raised and the more questions are answered.

"I find the best advanced battlefield strategy is to have more bullets than the other guy. Technically its thermal clips, not bullets. But who says 'I filled them with five detachable heat sinks?'"



Shame they didn't voice the "I delete errors like you on the way to real problems" line.

Now, I have to ask the obvious question... Where is the Femshep version?

It would be interesting to hear the female take of the same lines.

Some minor (if not inconsequential) spoilers in the following vid, but does give an idea of what to expect dialogue wise.



Also, Captain Bailey is back

Oh F**K yea, Bioware, well done. I knew you wouldn't let the fans down.

Conrad's epilogue should also been in the game then, judging from this.
