    I don't even want to post here without the previous OP in place. Booooooo.

    Also, I really need to play the single-player. I spent most of yesterday playing multi-player and my wife is getting mad at me. "I want to talk about the single-player but I don't want to spoil any of it for you. Hurry up and play the damn single-player!"

    I've been yelling at her for a month to hurry up and finish Saints Row the Third so I can talk to her about that. But oh no, now I'm the bad guy.

    Women, am I right fellas?

    About the 5000 points and the ending, since there's confusion: You can get the "best" ending without getting that many points. But you get a small extra cutscene (VERY SMALL) if you get that many points.

    Here is a spoilery link about what the endings do and how to get them: SPOILERS AHOY

    I just want to comment on the "why anyone would be upset about the required multiplayer"

    Now I'm not super upset but it's super inconvenient. I don't have a gold account. So I have to make use of the two day pass they gave (and if they didn't give that it would be SUPER bullshit). Now this is inconvenient because I have to wait until later in the game (because readiness can decay? wtf? why?) and make sure that I use it during a 2 day span where I can definitely play enough to get readiness to where it needs to be.

    So, really, the multiplayer shouldn't have any bearing on the single player game. It's pretty retarded.

    More like "looks like someone stopped playing Magic for a reason." :P

    And I'm with him. I'd rather have the option to pay 100k credits for an unlock pack for a particular race/class and some related gear. I just want my Salarian Infiltrator. Until then I have to ChargePunchNova all day long. This is Bioware's fault!

    So has anyone talked about how Newegg shipped Madden 2012 instead of ME3? 'cause they did, and it's not awesome.
    We’re contacting you today regarding your recent purchase of the Mass Effect 3 Xbox 360 game. It appears there may have been an error when fulfilling and shipping your order. We’ve received reports that some customers may have received Madden NFL 2012 Xbox 360 instead of the intended product.

    To correct this error, a Customer Service Representative will be contacting you at the phone number provided by you within your account to arrange an advanced replacement, if necessary. The Representative will also arrange an RMA with a prepaid return shipping label. Please note that when arranging advanced returns, we do require a credit card number to be on file in the event the originally-shipped product is not returned. Please expect this call within the next 2 to 3 business days; of course, you may contact Newegg customer support earlier as well if you wish.

    We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. As a courtesy, your advanced replacement game will be shipped via overnight delivery at no additional cost to you in the hope that you receive your game as quickly as possible.

    Sincerely,
    Newegg Customer Support

    But as a consolation, I watched a few more episodes of Game of Thrones last night, so I have that going for me. The commentaries are pretty great.

    Wish we could trade race/class combos...I'm dying to get my asari adept back, and all I got are a worthless krogan soldier, quarian infiltrator, AND a salarian infiltrator. Le sigh...guess I'm stuck spamming singularity/warp/shockwave >.<

    I have not, and it's very unfortunate--I was hoping to give it to one of my friends so that she could relish in the glory of shooting mans with various automatic weaponry. Additionally, even though the pre-order bonus only lasted two days, it was also stated to be a retroactive promotion (namely, people who pre-ordered before the promotion was announced would also get it)...and I pre-ordered back in the tail-end of January.

    BF3 code?
    If you preordered using Origin before a certain date (When they pulled the promotional deal without any warning) you're supposed to get BF3 for free. It's also supposed to be nontransferrable, but if it's a code it probably will be anyway. The problem is that as far as I can tell no one has received one yet, and it's supposed to be sent out when the game released. The email I got said the 8th at the latest, but it's the 8th now, and I haven't gotten a thing. Gonna try Origin support and see if they have any word.

    After that ending, I need to shoot mans to recover. Because damn.

    and no goddamn payback for those airquotes, either!

    I don't know if it's intentional or not, but I've noticed a lot of NPC's in places like the citadel or other places giving air quotes to each other. Seriously, keep an eye out.

    Also I was unaware of this "multiplayer effects galactic readiness and influences the ending" thing.

    I pretty much hate to see multiplayer effect the single-player game in any way whatsoever, considering it's been a single-player game to this point.
