Yes, Blame me and not you're strong urges to KNOOOOOW! XD

There are actually two spoilers revealed by the "Art of Mass Effect" (though they were already known due to the leaked beta), both of them exceedingly underwhelming. The one posted last page was easily the worst of the two though.

I recommend nobody click it, you will be disappointed. It could even put you off buying ME3 with how ridiculous it is.

Are...you being serious? Because that's seriously not the case for me.

That I find the spoilers ridiculous? Yes, quite serious and I'm far from alone on that. In fact reaction has been negative across the board.

I am in the same boat as Darkbeat. I will pass on Mass Effect 3. The two spoilers confirm the leak to a degree, which I found it a completely underwhelming story. Furthermore, watching the leaked gameplay was enough for me to change my mind already. I just do not like the direction of the game. Furthermore, Bioware's statement that they were going to make the story easier for new players to the series just does not bode well in my opinion. They already have a preset of choices for ME/ME2 if you do not have a save file.

I am sure Mass Effect 3 will be a good game, but I do not think I will miss anything by passing it up.

I'll be getting ME3, but it's still an exceedingly underwhelming development, disappointing even. Too many of their ideas seem to be aimed towards making some of the more...unusual...Mass Effect fans on BSN happy, rather than making it a coherent, believable and above all mature and epic storyline.

I'll give Bioware the benefit of the doubt though, after all, they brought us Mordin, Legion, Samara and even Miranda in ME2. Those were characters I would easily have brushed off with disappointment, but turned out to be excellent.

Actually, I do believe you guys are holding more spoiler info than I am, I was only referring to the images last page, not any grisly details they may have accompanied.

Ah, that explains it. The spoiler in the last page is one of two spoilers that leaked (presumably by accident) along with the "Art of Mass Effect" manual.

These were actually already known, by and large, as a massive leak happened a few months back when a beta-build was put up on XBLA for an hour or so. A few people on NeoGAF got it and managed to unlock the entire game's dialogue trees buried within the code. This ended up with the forum being served a Cease and Desist by Microsoft, on behalf of Bioware and the spoilers being taken down.

Bioware denied the spoilers were the final product and that changes would be made. The two that have been leaked along with the Art of Mass Effect however confirm that some of them, at least to some degree, are real deal.

I do recommend staying away from spoiler details and judging the game fairly/on it's own merits though.

Mass Effect 3 was accidently uploaded to Xbox live, thus people were able to download the game and play. Although it was unfinished people were able to extract script and story notes of the game. Furthermore, some uploaded parts of ME3 such as the beginning, a full planet mission, and the Co-op mode to youtube.

Those spoiler pics at least confirm one massive part of the leak.

edit: Darkbeat, sorry I did not mean to imply you were also avoiding ME3, but rather the leaks caused concern.

On a more (?) positive note, here's a new Special Forces (multiplayer) trailer;

I'm really liking the gameplay. Fast-paced and chaotic.

I was kind of skeptical about the whole multiplayer thing. NOT ANYMORE!!

Pretty decent tie-in to the campaign, too. I don' think people will complain much anymore after seeing more of this.

More amusing is the blog linked on that vid:

Until she zips out and leaves you surrounded by husks. That’s just uncalled for.

So uh.....what happens if all of the players in the squad are vanguards? That guide just assumes that only 1 player is a vanguard.

A shame you can't play as a Geth Soldier.

It might actually work, come to think about it. The biggest weakness of a vanguard is leaving the safety of your squad to charge the enemy, who often outnumbers and/or outguns you.

Charge in with an entire squad though, and suddenly the enemy group faces a wall of shotguns at point blank range.
