I just got the game and installed it... played about 2.5 hours so far and enjoying it. I have the graphics all the way up @ 1920x1200 and then im using "nVidia Inspector" to force the AA at 16x [16x CSAA (4 color + 12 cv samples)] and then on top of it I added 2x Supersampling. Smooth as butter! ...and yay... Ash is back! lol.

Ash is so hot right now.

I read Mass Effect 3: The Final Hours. You relationship with Ash can really nose dive if you let it. ::

Will make playing Renegade hard.

Yeah, I played as a heavy renegade in both ME1 and ME2. Im determined to stick with Renegade tho! I'm just making all the "caring" choices toward Ash but everything else im trying to pick the renegade option. I do like how all my armor and levels converted right over into ME3. Im not sure so many came over from ME1 to ME2.

They carried across, similar to ME3, you got the level and the points to respend on the new skills for your class.

Has anybody seen any FPS issues with ME3? For the past week, every time I start the game, I get single digit FPS, and none of the settings have changed (and before that, it ran a solid 60 FPS all the time - I use vsync). The only thing that seems to fix is reinstalling the driver, which is nuts, or running in a windowed mode.

I don't know how long it will hold up, but yeah the MP is surprisingly good.

So the last 10 minutes of this game manage to ruin the entire trilogy. What a waste, Bioware can eat a dick. Who wants to bet this horrible ending was done so they can sell tons of DLC so we can really find out what happened?

I'm better now.

It was immensely disappointing how the series ended. They spend years trying to get you to care about these characters, stories, and use thousands of lines of dialogue to make them feel real to you, only to wrap the entire series up in a two minute video that completely negates everything you've done up to that point. It's easily the most disappointed I've ever been with an ending to a series and it makes the entire experience feel hollow.

I am not sure how long it would take to do the main storyline alone, but for doing a good deal of the side missions my first play through took about 37 hours maybe a little less. So maybe 25 or less if you only do the main quest stuff and ignore everything else. Maybe even less if you never speak to any of your crew.
