    I am going to assume significant upgrades for SMGs and pistols if they ever want anyone to choose them

    like, Locust and Phalanx are the beginning guns

    So, Liara.

    How creepy stalker is she going to be this time, do you think?

    Also, hope there'll be armor options for everyone. Always felt silly fighting the Geth on airless bases with just a rebreather and a lot of skin showing.

    Though I'm not sure about the apparent boob job they've given her, it's seems like they've tried to turn her into Ashely Lawson.
    Ashley wasn't exactly small chested in ME1. It's rare that we get a good look at her outside of armor, but she definitely wasn't lacking in that department.

    Well, regarding all weapons being available to all classes, they might bring it back to the me1 system
    where any class could use any gun but only specific classes could be GOOD with certain ones (I.E. Weapon skills).

    Yeah, she wasn't lacking, and I'm guessing the catsuit adds to it, it's snug in all the right places.

    Really, I have no complaints, I'm just glad to hear that the Ashley/Kaiden fans aren't going to be shafted in ME3.

    It's obviously too soon to tell, but with the info released so far, the return of potentially dead squadmates, insane set-pieces, it sounds like Bioware went. "Fuck the budget! Let's go all out on this one! Let's see just how over the top, and crazy awesome we can make it!"

    I would be happy if they dropped weapon typing altogether and just gave us a bunch of different weapon options with corresponding performance stats we can compare. I don't need to know if this is supposed to be an assault rifle or a shotgun, I need to know how fast it fires and how hard it hits.

    And if there are a couple of guns that go back to the infinite ammo with heat build up, I would be so goddamn happy.

    Yeah, it says that it will have stronger RPG elements, but not to the extant of ME1, I'm guessing that's one element they will leave out.

    I hope one of the weapon upgrades is a suppressor/silencer, that would essentially decide which class to be for me.

    I like killing people without them knowing it.

    i wouldn't mind weapons skills effecting things like damage or reload speed, like upgrading weapons in RE4

    but yeah crippling my aiming with artificial wobble and forcing me to work back up to my actual level of competency, my mouse precision, is silly

    I don't like the cover for the Game Informer article. Could they use something slightly more original than him standing in front of a burning Earth? Also this reminds me a lot of Halo. An alien race invading Earth surprisingly, all odds look against humans, Shephard has to fight husks (flood) and the only part of Earth that's being attacked is Africa (lol racist?).

    Edit: I meant Game Informer, not Gamespot.

    So, why is everyone looking forward to the return of planet exploration a la ME1? Was that mentioned in the article?

    Because there's really not much time to loiter around the galaxy during an ongoing Reaper invasion. And judging by DA2, we're likely to get a more linear story constrained to a limited set of locations.

    Super excited though.

    The N7 missions were so much better than ME1's exploration I can't even stand it, but accessing them was too tedious. Many of them were very relevant to the ongoing story. Mix those with Hackett/news stories/other missions telling you about them.

    Linear location and a linear. Oh boy. If I wanted to have linear locations and story, I would go play space FPS #122324.

    Also, why is Bioware making me pay more money by buying the DLC just so I can understand what's going on in the game?
