    Once you level up a Quarian Infiltrator you can get a spectre pack every round and still have around 15k left. I mean you might get bored of playing the same class every game versus the same enemies every game, but it's good for unlocks.

    I'm guessing you basically go to Gold and set the enemies to Geth then abuse sabotage?

    I figured character unlocks would stop after hitting max appearance customization options (lights), not just max level. Or does it keep happening even if you've got the lights unlocked.
    You can still get characters even after you have all the appearance options; there is still an EXP bonus associated with the cards.

    Yeah if you do a quick match it usually puts you in a game with at least 2 other Quarian Infiltrators since everyone is doing it. I chose Duration Bonus, Explosive Hack bonus, and Berserk bonus. Shit goes down

    Multiplayer is still awesome.

    I think my personal favorites go like so:

    - Drell Adept (Consistently get ridiculous scores with Reave + Cluster Grenades)
    - Human Infiltrator (Easy to solo waves with Widow + Tactical Cloak)
    - Quarian Infiltrator (100% Heavy Melee + Tactical Cloak = hilarious)
    - Human Vanguard

    I still havent gotten Krogan Solder in either the Demo or the actual game, so take with a grain of salt; but Solider and Sentinel both seem really lame in comparison. Engineer can be fun, simply because you have the tools to take out any enemy, but pretty bland otherwise.

    The worst combination seems to be Asari Vanguard.

    I would love to see some DLC expanding on the MP maps, and adding some more character types like:

    Okay. Stayed up until 4:30 in the goddamn morning and slept through my alarm and was late to work, just so I could talk about this thing with you guys.

    THESSIA/DLC CHARACTER STUFF:
    Spoiler:

    The vast majority of this game is everything I ever wanted in a Mass Effect finale. The character interactions are ace, and, unlike in ME2, your crew actually has relationships with each other. Coming into a room and overhearing Liara's conversations with the DLC character were especially well done. I really loved the War Room stuff, reading about the traits and numerical values of the units and fleets I unlocked.

    You can still get characters even after you have all the appearance options; there is still an EXP bonus associated with the cards.

    The exp is irrelevant. The game tracks it by simply giving each item either a specific number limit, or no limit at all. For weapons and consumable stock upgrades, it's 10, and mods 5. All other unlocks have no limits.

    You know I think I'm going to spec my Vanguard for hp/shields instead of melee this time. I barely use melee and I would like the extra survivability more.

    Mods never went to X, and the weapon restriction is only in SP. That restriction gets lifted on NG+; non-collectable weapons (starting stuff and pre-order stuff) can immediately be upgraded to X using the terminal, and guns you collect in missions can be upgraded to VII (they then go to X for free when you collect them again).

    That's what I did in the demo and it works great. The added HP buffer really helps.

    I really should resurrect my Vanguard, I've been too busy trying to figure the adept classes out. Each one requires such a different playstyle and takes some real experimentation to make work efficiently.

    Well, except for the Asari Adept who just fires off Throw as much as possible.
