Ok, i now have something to bitch about.

I just recieved my game. Got the LE N7 version.

Just opened it up and slid out the metal case to find scratches on the metal casing. So much for being able to keep it pristine. I'm pissed.

Buying it from a store doesnt have anything to do with the case being scratched.

Only way this could have happened was during manufacturing and packaging.

Someone on bioware's forum suggested I send it back then. I have to laugh at that one since the CE was already in limited supply.

It's just a scratch but still.... I bought it NEW, not in a pre-scratched condition.

Only complaint so far is James Vega. If he calls me Loco one more time, I'm gonna leave him standard on a planet full of Reapers and let him fend for himself.

So far, lots of minor things bug me. Some were in the demo but I didn't really think about them.

The sniper-focus mechanic for Infiltrator's is gone, as far as I can tell. It would help more than ever with the increased combat speed.

I preferred how weapons - specifically sniper rifles - sounded: futuristic.

There is no motion whatsoever on the loading screens I have seen.

The little mech "dog" from the CE should follow you around the entire Normandy, imo.

My online pass entered, downloaded from ashes for free, and now the menu says I need to enter it again and it's invalid.

Super.

lmfao, the best is next to your post you have that pic of shepard with a shit eating grin on his face. not gonna lie, i did have a little hostility toward vega before i played the game (seems weird adding him in for the last game). but i left my mind open, i have always loved my crew and dialogued instensly with them, so i figured why not talk with him and get to know who "james" really is.

ya calling me loco lost him some points, along with saying "pendaho" and stuff like that. one thing i absolutely did not like, is what he did on the end of the mars misson (not giving anything away). im hoping over time he will grow on me. have you noticed how unnecesarily ripped that guy is? lol i was watching him to chin-ups forever, apparently he is just working out until you want to talk / kill things.

Couple of things so far:

Bioware needs to hire some fucking animators that didn't just get out of DigiPen. Raising team members puts people in their default "T" poses for a minute, rendering them useless until they pick up some AI commands.

Sometimes I lose my helmet in the vacuum of space. It's cool. I get it back in the middle of combat.

A shooter oriented RPG that won't let me fine tune stick sensitivity? Really?

I like how people in group conversations will step in, say a few words, and then back away from the group. Like, all the time. So unnatural.

I had to watch Anderson run again. That was fun.

Audio pops occasionally. It's usually from explosions, but only when a lot is going on.

I hate that I'm in the opening stages of the game and I'm running in to this stuff.

EDIT:

Oh, and the cover system is a mess. I've been spoiled by Gears of War 3. Sometimes, cover will bug out, and you will have to back a good 3 feet away before being able to take cover. I'm doing insanity right off the bat, so it's caused some very avoidable deaths. Unacceptable.

EDIT 2:

Spoiler! (click here to reveal)

Been trying to play the multiplayer this afternoon, and get the same map, and the same enemies, every single time. Even selecting different options before hitting find game, still gets me the same god damn map.

I know, right? I was about to shatter the damn things when I pulled them out. I'm going to put them in sleeves. Seems safer.

Potential spoiler alert:

... unacceptable glitch, though. Characters are stuck staring at things on either side of them.

I don't like the new Normandy. It's way to dark, way too cluttered, and it feels like they've messed up a lot of the layouts. Particularly Deck 2. Why did they rip the labs out and replace it with an obnoxious, time-wasting security scanner? And why did they feel it necessary to move the Conference room away from the center AND why did they feel it necessary to not so much move the armory, but to flat out eliminate the room itself to begin with?

I miss the original SR2 with the bright decor and the chatty crew members. I'm only just returning to the Citadel from Palaven's moon and I found Gabby and Ken, so I'm happy my two favorite Normandy Crew Members are back, but I haven't had much opportunity to talk to them yet.

I experienced a weird glitch when talking to Liara the first time I was set free on the Normandy. When I mentioned Glyph to her, Shepard's head kept following the drone instead of looking at Miranda. Only happened once though.

Sometimes when I'm in cover and reloading my sniper , I'll press the left trigger to pop out and take a shot and my scope will display, but I'll still be in my 3rd person perspective. Not a big deal since I can just release and press it again, but annoying when I'm on Insanity where a missed opportunity can spell life or death.

The worst glitch so far is sometimes I'll try to to go into low cover (like a crate) and Shepard will repeatedly pop off of it for no reason. This has gotten me killed a few times. It mostly occurs when I try to sprint into cover.

Yes. This is exactly what I was referring to. Glad I'm not the only one. Hope it doesn't happen anymore.

I had the same thing happen to me. Must be a universal thing. I couldn't help but laugh, even though it was something pretty obvious to anyone who tested the game

The one think that pisses me off more than anything is their inability to be able to match the moving lips with what they are saying. Its so painful to watch I try to look through the person when they are talking so it doesn't stand out as much!

Doing the very first N7 MISSION (only 3h in) --> Please Insert Disc 2.

...after that...

Doing the very first MAIN-PLOT MISSION (after Mars) --> Please Insert Disc 1.

Seriously...WTF!???

Ashley looks considerably uglier and.. the game told me I romanced no one in ME1 and Miranda in ME2. Clearly incorrect. It was Ashley in ME1 and Tali in ME2.

Sigh, oh well. What do you do.

Still in the beginning stages... I was a little perturbed that I couldn't get one of my main Shep faces from ME1 to import, but I have a couple of alternate facecodes from customizing my Sheps in ME2 that are pretty close so I'm not as upset as some others are.

I think the graphics are beautiful, much better than in the demo, and the cinematic cuts really show it off, but I think about 15 minutes went by between completing the first mission after leaving Earth and getting to the next destination (trying not to be too spoilery) where you couldn't pause or save. I had to pee and my phone kept buzzing lol, and I didn't want to move in case the cin. stopped!

Really annoyed with taking cover being such a pain. It was so easy in ME1... or maybe I just got used to it that way.

Not looking forward to all the disc changes I keep hearing about. Maybe I'll try to hold off on N7 missions until they rack up and do as many as possible all together?

Not really complaining yet, but just an observation. I just got to the Citadel and so far the whole beginning of the game that I've played up to this point has been pretty tame, which is my polite way of saying boring.

The whole thing on earth could've been so much more exciting, dramatic, and emotional. Get us really fired up. But I was just meh.

My hope is that the beginning is slow and that it picks up story-wise from here. Oh, and there better be some twists and turns in the plot cuz so far it's been predictable and straightforward (granted it's still the beginning...).

Well im glad everyone has minor complaints or are enjoying the game so far. My UPS delivery guy left my pretty shiny Collectors at my neighbors door, when i went to check, it was gone and no one is home. He missed my building even though the address is on the package. Today is a DARK day for Breed...after securing a LAST minute CE i get it taken by someone else.

Im keeping my eye out for the lights to come on before i go over asking to see if he received a package that he will deny receiving, lol.

Will Keep You Updated what happens, keep checking back!
