    Has anyone that ordered on Origin received their BF3 code yet?

    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.

    AH, I see, I didn't hear about that.

    Reading up on it, that was a US only promotion,so no wonder I didn't know.

    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.

    Like I said in the old thread, I don't really get that mad about it. What I don't like, though, is knowing this I'll get to a point where it'll be time to complete the game. I then have to save, go grind up my multiplayer stuff, and then resume. It doesn't flow right, to me at least.

    Now, my plan is to just save, get my ending, and then play multi and load it up and do it again. Hopefully that works.

    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.

    Not to get off topic in this thread, but I'm 800 pages into the third book. You have no idea what is ahead, assuming you haven't read the books. So good.

    Edit: third book of the A Song Of Ice And Fire series, which is where Game Of Thrones comes from.

    This isn't spoilery, but talks about number of endings and clarifies how multi affects it without actually spoiling anything about the endings, but spoilered just in case.

    Amit:
    I would like to say, please wait for some time if you are bought the game before offer ends.
    Amit:
    You'll definitely get your game.

    you:
    Will that be today?
    Amit:
    Yes, it might be some delay due to any reason but you'll be get your game.

    Aside from not getting something that was supposed to be included, you're not missing out on too much unless you play a class that has absolutely no concern for power recharge. The Argus rifle is amazingly heavy (maxed out weight), and the Raider shotgun is half-way decent as a bit of a novelty (it's basically a sawed-off, double-barreled shotgun: two shots before a reload and MASSIVE scatter).

    Still, that's pretty raw that you didn't get the original Origin pre-order guns.

    So far I don't really know what to think of me3. In terms of shooting, it is by far the best game in the series and I really enjoy it for that. Also like the choices involved with the different war assets and how interesting they have made the core missions. But in other ways I am not finding this as enjoyable. They've made planet scanning and many side quests just pointless wastes of time, which do not seem to fit with the games dire situation - honestly am I really going to be space postman during the fucking reaper invasion?

    Also really do not like what they did with a certain character immensely. Maybe it will grow on me after more play, but really not liking some of their decisions involving the characters in this game.

    Considering they get jumped on and called liars or have "news" sites take their comments out of context that get them in trouble when all they do is post their own honest thoughts in their own free time, I don't blame them.
