New Normandy walkthrough. Oh man it is going to be so depressing going to all the old stations and not seeing ME2 crew.

Eh, not really - as well-written as most of ME2's characters were, I didn't really like any of them.

It looks like a ghost town almost depressing watching that.

No Hammmerhead in the shuttle bay.. Hm, and no Tali on ship. So looks like she's going to be elsewhere...

Wonder if you do run into the ME2 crew in any format as you wander around tho... Kelly or the Engineers mayhaps.

IIRC, Kelly at least is supposed to be in the game. For all we know she could take the yeoman's place if she survived ME2.

Ah, but if (as it said) the Ensign they've got there is the lesbian romance for FemShep, then I doubt they'd casually have Kelly replace her. Hm, then again, with the way Kelly was played in ME2...

I doubt any of the Cerberus crew will be allowed back on Normandy. For any reason.

Joker, Chakwas, and EDI being obvious exceptions. Two are former Alliance, one is the Normandy itself.

Could well be reading off the same script. :p

But yes, for all i know, all the Cerberus people from ME2 could be showed into some five-minute blink and you miss it cameo. Which is kind of sad, I was really looking forward to a soothingly voiced away team of Ashley and Miranda. :p

Well they have said all those times that you'll see a lot of people turn up again as squad-mates if only for one-off missions... so there's that potential. Throw in the whole "romance triangles, and personal conflict" that's been talked about.. I wouldn't be surprised if they manage to fit that in.. ;)

Avoid the usual spots if you're worried about spoilers. They've been trickling for a couple days, but a deluge is starting.

Hm, something from IGN's Q&A Mass Effect 3 Preview Report


The other complaint pertains to side quest timing. I've failed several side quests because I didn't do them soon enough, but you're never given much of an explanation of timeliness, or given fair warning that time is even a threat. So take heed from my experience, and knock out side quests as soon as you earn them. Otherwise, you may eventually get cut off from them forever.


So it looks like you won't be able to amble around regardless once you've picked up certain quests.. That could be interesting. Depending on how well it's handled.

Ugh, that Normandy tour already depressed me. Hopefully it'll be more lively in my game.

Well they are going for urgency, so timed quests isn't that bad an idea. Hopefully it'll be done alright.

And this is the weapons bench, which you can romance if you're a psychopath (male or female).

I actually like the idea of quests having a window of opportunity. It always bugged me that the sense of urgency of some quests was conveyed exclusively through dialogue but you could put off actually doing them forever. It's all about implementation, though...

No, that's Zaeed's gig in ME3.

There's going to be a love triangle between Zaeed, the weapons bench and the trash compactor? SPOILERS!

Did BioWare fire off their entire animation team or am I suddenly wearing rose-tinted glasses for a franchise I don't love? I distinctly remember run and walk cycles as much smoother in ME2 and ME1.

That gives "gun porn" a whole new meaning... :brows:

Blame Kinect.
