As I hear, dodging is suppose to give you some damage protection for a few seconds, maybe it's the same for Phantoms? With them being agile combatants and constantly dodging and flipping, I imagine when they're in that dance their damage protection is up.

That's the case in MP anyway. I imagine it's probably the same in SP.

I don't know if players have been complaining about multiplayer in here, but here goes:

Why?!

I join a game, three other players already in the lobby, the settings were on some particular map, with Geth as the enemy, on the Bronze difficulty. As soon as my screen shows the lobby, I've got 1 kick against me. Seconds after, I'm booted from the lobby.

I know it's not a measure of immense skill or nothing, but my N7 rating was the second highest in the lobby (behind by 12). I messaged them "what was the point?" but I've had nothing yet.

I would like to put it down to the possible MP credit glitch thing, where if true, GTFO. No offense to anyone who has tried it here, but put the god damn lobby to private FFS if you're going to do it.

It happened to me again yesterday. This time about 4500 kills are gone. I must admit that I was about to cry to vent out the frustration, but then I joined some friends' MP game and forgot about it.

I will take bets now on whether I will get the Veteran Achievement on the third try or not.



And thank you for the kind words last time. o/

Have all achievements done except Unwavering and Insanity. Have had the wonderful EA server log in crap pop-up to wipe my progress on Unwavering 3 times now. I'm about to say screw Unwavering in the campaign and try my luck just beating the multiplayer maps on gold.

I kept my save files for ME1 for over three years, and my save files for ME2 since release. Unfortunately, the HD where I kept them gave up on me a day before ME3 came out.

Movement/cover... AGAIN!

Standing in cover and a banshee is coming towards me, I'm firing in the other direction. I think 'I'd better move or she's going to kill me' so I try to move to the next piece of cover, but nothing happens. I try again, nothing. I try to simply walk away from cover, nothing again. By the time I actually move it's already started the animation for her to grab me and kill me (which by the way is fucked anyway as you stand there without her touching you long enough to at least attempt to get away!).

I've avoided spoilers and ignored people who have said the ending is shit just to see for myself but at this rate I somehow doubt it's going to be worth it!

Yeah, that's pretty crazy. When I heard Bioware were adding cover maneuvers I thought "at least the game won't be as stiff as ME2" but it just ended up making it stiff AND clunky. Two steps back I guess

yeah, the movement/cover thing has got me killed a bunch. usually when a grenade comes in, i'm already in cover and either can't unstick from the cover quick enough, or i roll straight into another piece of cover within the blast radius. not sure if it's an insanity thing, but it's caused me to rage a few times.

the problem is they (EA) want it to be plain shooter while trying not lose the fans that made Mass effect the hit and you can't do that very well. Re-using the same engine with the jerky and stiff animations.

I wish EA would just choose if they want to do plain 3rd person shooter for the masses or a proper action RPG shooter, none of this half and half shit. Its just like RE5, as faster paced shooter it was bad because of the controls.

Have to laugh at the indoctrinated biodrones (on every other forum) that defend the ending as NONE of them can't defend the ending without screaming insults or explain why the ending works (or explain the plot holes) No spoilers (sorry don't worry abiout that) All their comments are constant spew of bile being the Internet hardman that they are. There is a great quote from Casey Hudson saying something about the ending choices and the final game proves him wrong and Bioware refuse to answer any questions from gaming sites about it!

At the end of the day, its just a ending to the game but these idiots need to be called out on this bile (like 1 complete fuck wit on EG calling everyone else nerds, whiners etc but has not even played the 3rd game

Really hope it does not set a trend where developers can't be bothered to finish the ending in a decent way, so they just make up some bullshit last minute so they can go back to eating all the deep fried pizza and acting like a celebrity on developer diaries videos

What annoys me is the cover system in ME2 had nothing wrong with it and was actually praised as being a more refined system than ME1 and i am still at a lose as to why Bioware changed it as now it is completely messed up. 90% of my deaths have been due to cover system doing something other than what i want.

I am trying to force myself through the SP to unlock the insanity achievements but i have no desire to push through. I just played the Thessia mission and besides Liara's constant bitching and moaning, "really Liara, you just lost your home world to the reapers, join the club," the fight against Kai Lang feels so cheap and out of place. It honestly felt like i was playing a Japanese game from the late 90's where the character has an unbelievable amount of protection and instead of fighting like every other character, cartwheels around the area like an idiot. It's been a long time since i have seen a boss have to retreat to recharge shields, honestly these types of boss fights died out years ago and there was a good reason. I can't believe this is the same company that made ME1 and ME2, they have completely messed up the gameplay in my opinion.

Start your own public matches and you shouldn't have this problem. I've joined quick matches exactly three times and two of those times I was kicked instantly. I only play in public matches I create and never have a problem. People just like to be jerks and you're right, they should go private if they're gonna just kick people or glitch.

i was no fan of either Leng fight and granted it's been many years since i played it but i seem to remember the Saren fight being essentially the same, him running around a big ass room occasionally throwing stuff at you.

Mass Effect 3 cannot successfully determine the custom face code......

Bah! Not a major issue really, but bloody annoying all the same. I like my Shepard, I spent ages designing him back on ME 1.

I liked ME3 but can't say I enjoyed it as much as the first two games.
ME3 felt rather linear with limited exploration with the Citadel being the only real place I could go visit (I do understand that there's a war on and going to Tunchanka to watch varren fight in a pit might not be a possibly).
I don't think I could do missions in the order I wanted to like in the first two games. I've only been through once so I could be wrong.

The section of the game on Earth at the end I feel went on too long. When I got to the missile activation thing I was hoping it would be it, but they decided to throw hordes of reapers at me.

The dream sequences where Shepard is in the forest really annoyed me. My renegade Shepard cares for no one.

Well after completing the game on insanity I failed to get the unwavering achievement pop which as many of you have suffered from was due to my stats being reset. Says I have completed 23/27 of the missions which I can assure you is totally wrong. I have done all 27 on insanity including the dlc. I even checked all 27 missions on youtube to be extra sure and I can recall doing each and everyone of them.

Thing is...there is just no way of knowing which of those 4 missions they are. So I can't for example start a new campaign...blast through some missions on easy and then when I get to the required mission to complete on insanity switch it from easy to insanity. Basically I have to start the whole game again on insanity...noooo. ---------->EA

Cool

After playing the game through 3x now (I know, I know... WHY?), I find my list of complaints growing. A few of the biggest are:

The Ending: Great way to null out 4.5 years of gaming!!
Multiplayer: Really? The franchise was built on single player. Not everything works better with multiplayer.
Am I the only one that feels maybe the design team just got plain tired of this game? Everything seems (poorly) cobbled together in the hopes that we (the series mega-fans) won't notice.

I rated Mass Effect with 5 stars because I loved the "every decision has consequences" idea (reminiscent of Star Wars KOTOR). Even the arduous task of exploration with that MAKO was not enough for me to drop my rating. In Mass Effect 2, I did take off a star for the pains of exploration, although the designers did actually improve it, slightly. Also, I thought the timing issues with finishing all the loyalty missions and the attack on the Collector base was in a sense, unfair. With Mass Effect 3, they FINALLY got the exploration right (more right would have been a mix between the system scans and the MAKO (I really loved that tank)). Unfortunately, one star goes away for, not the inclusion but the necessity of multiplayer. Another star falls for the ending and being left with a feeling of utter futility. If I was a real hard ass, I would take yet another star away for “forcing” me to purchase DLC right out of the gate making the game $70US rather than the advertised $60US. Plus, the more I play this game, I am finding more and more areas rife with the design teams’ obvious lack of enthusiasm. One would have thought that this series would have ended on a much higher note. Instead, it just seems to portray the feeling of “let’s just get it over with.” Sad. I feel like I have been slimed .

Game is good, but not so good as in ME2, reminds me of KotOR2, good but many issues/bugs.

For me multiplayer is great, but it suffers from EA money policy (aka buy random packs) and many bugs. Today's patch for example completely shutdown both single player and multi player, because game crashes on EA servers connection.

I've had to restart my insanity run thanks to that bloody Eclipse bug. Whoever thought it would be a good idea to reset the flags after loading is a genius.

I'd quite like to bitch about the lack of any real exploration (really why remove the vehicles?), but i'd be here all night.

Oh and the loading time for the armour takes the piss.

Slightly disappointed in the Krogan Vanguard. I thought that he would be a powerhouse, but he just might be the worst vanguard. Nearly identical to the Krogan Soldier as well.

Krogan Biotic powers compared to Krogan Soldier powers
Carnage-Carnage
Fortification-Barrier (pretty much same thing)
Biotic Charge-Grenades (Only difference)

Cool

So, WTF??? I have been playing mostly MP over the last few days and have purchased well over a dozen Spectre Packs maybe a half dozen Veteran Packs and numerous Recruit Packs. My question/bitch is this: where in the effing hell are the Med Kits?? I used to get at least 1 in every few Recruit Packs and a load of 5 for every few Spectre Packs. Lately, nothing! With the amount of individuality in this "COOP" experience, those med kits come in handy. Come on, programmers! Gimme an effin break!
