    Thanks.
    I'm gonna get it up to around 90% and then finish the game.

    Then I can be disappointed in the ending like everyone else. :)

    Another speculation I hear a lot is that the phoenix could be turians since the design of their race was based on birds. I can see all three theories making sense. Regardless I look forward to reveal of the phoenix.

    I got my galactic readiness to 92% last night.
    I'll probably play one match tonight to keep it in the 90s and then finish the campaign (or hope to finish it anyway.)

    I also added the flamethrower to my Geth Turret -zowie is that a game changer!

    I’m getting a little frustrated with the multiplayer because I’ve bought three Specter packs and haven’t gotten any new characters nor any weapons better than an Arc pistol. :mad 
    I needs me a Krogan!

    Whether the ending is good or bad is debatable, sure. But I was disappointed that I ‘looked’ at one thing to do at the ending and was locked into doing it.
    In regards to your Galactic Readiness level and the campaign’s ending, I was at 98% readiness and I have no idea what impact that had on my ending.
    There wasn’t even a vague reference to it.

    Well, essentially the Asset score can unlock the center option if I recall correctly. But, yeah, they are pretty bad at letting you know which ending does what; and what, if anything, the War Assets do. It all felt very different from the rest of the game, and lends weight to the theory that the ending didn't go through the same peer review process that the rest of the game did.

    Does anyone play gold on any map other than firebase white vs geth? I like that it's ridiculously easy to survive all waves but I'd like to get credit for other maps

    I've never survived a Gold map. Ever. :mad 


    Yeah, the ending didn't feel like I was playing the same game.

    Either that or they pushed the game out the door before it was ready. Either way, I blame EA. EA's just a cancer in the videogame industry. Sooner or later, everything they touch turns to crap.

    I really don't feel like anything was rushed except the ending.
    I completely enjoyed the game again -except for the ending.

    The multiplayer has been great fun and doesn't feel 'tacked on' at all.

    Add me on Xbox and ill help you. We get 2 more semi competent players and we can do it. Spam engineers and infiltrators. The area Down below just inside the doorway with 2 barricades. The 4 hide out there together vs geth and its quite survivable. Wouldn't try it with repearrs on account of teleporting banshees...

    I agree. I had expected the multiplayer to feel like a half-assed afterthough, but it's actually a lot of fun. I feel like I should be playing more, especially since I still have so little unlocked, but I've been distracted with other games.

    I wouldn't say rushed, just that EA might've imposed a strict deadline on Bioware to meet that March release date, and Bioware may simply have just run out of time.

    My buddies and I do that vs Cerberus - I'd figure it'd be harder with Geth what with the Pyros and all, but maybe we'll give it a shot.

    Nah dude geth are the easiest I think. Pyros run up to you At barricade and boom you do a grab. Geth primes are the biggest headache but even then not bad.

    I'll add you, but my work schedule is hectic (going in at 3 AM today) and then I'm out of town. I'd sure like to give it a go though.

    Yeah, I could totally see that happening.

    Yeah, and I've been complaining that I don't have the unlocks that I want, but I started looking at the characters I have but don't use, and I have a ton
    of things unlocked for them.
    I'm gonna start playing them -that Krogan Vanguard will come.

    Smasher, my times on live are erratic but I have no doubt we will find a time to give it a go.

    Wow, the DLC so far has been pretty impressive. I like everything in the new one except...

    Escort missions. Oh god no.

    I like that we're getting new characters and maps (don't really care about the new weapons), but I'm disappointed that the Prothean speculation turned out to be wrong. Take away their unique abilities and we're left with what is likely just a pair of humans in different armor. Big whoop. Yeah, yeah I know. "Living Protheans messes with the lore!" Multiplayer is barely connected to the campaign as it is. If it can make the game more fun, so what if the story goes out the window?

    I hope the Ex Cerberus Agents have another racial bonus to have them differ between the other human classes.

    I agree we're at a point where BW should drop the whole lore restriction and give us Protheans.
