Not silly. They need to prove it's not of similar quality to DA2.

@Joaquin Crowe
the leaked alpha version of ME3 was better then the finished DA2...

anyway, the demo is worth playing just to listen to the new sound effects.

Playing some Lotro this weekend. Rolled a new guardian on a brand new server, found a fairly decent guild already and am getting sucked back into the game again, yay. On the side I'm playing Alan Wake on the PC, this game is awesome.

Kickstarting games....hmmm. Nope, not unless I was the major investor and knew a ton about the game in development. I've seen some friends lose money to Stargate Worlds who tried to do kickstarting with donations and that was a fairly major IP and it tanked. Now they lost all that money. Yeah, I don't think so.

Gonna be playing the tera beta this weekend, if I ever get in that is, massive queues now.
If that doesnt happen I will try and finish off the darkness II instead or I might even think about getting myself out of the house and getting blind drunk. Decisions decisions.

The demo not only allayed many's fear that ME3's MP would suck but has gotten quite a few people (myself included) excited about it.

Its a solid MP coop game, I will have fun with it.

Well not excited about ME3 at all , I am not surprised as infos about this game were not to my liking far before demo came out. They just went route I don't like (more shooter , even more casualization & streamline).

So going to pass.

I can resist any game. It is not that hard - try it sometimes.

the demo was a PR disaster. if anything, it made people paranoid that ME3 will be another DA2.

before i played the demo, ME3 was a sure and blind buy. lets just say that after playing the demo, i'll wait for a couple of reviews to come out first.

i dont know if it's the people running BW who are slipping, or if it's EA penetrating its tentacles into something that used to be so good

What makes you think it was a "PR disaster"? I'm wary of that assessment, since I know how people like to generalize/project based on personal experiences.

Basically those who thought ME2 strayed too far away from BioWare's RPG origins, are now complaining that ME3 has moved further away, based on the limited conversation choices presented in the two levels of the demo.

And we all know these people are incredibly vocal, as they were for ME1, ME2, DAO, DA2 and everything else BioWare has done since Baldur's Gate.

Everyone else seems to be pleasantly surprised by the demo. They know it is foolish to judge the conversation choices for the full game based on a few minutes of demo and they've also seen that the co-op multiplayer is actually pretty good and fits nicely with the way the game plays.

BW lost their touch once EA bought them out.

I would be playing Dance Central 2 (or at least the demo for it), but my 360 doesn't have a HDD and the flash storage built into the console is already filled up so yeah...

Other than that, I might play some Street Fighter 3rd Strike and practice my Elena in the hopes she actually shows up in Street Fighter x Tekken like the rumors say. Don't know if I'll play anything else really. I got a ton of unfinished console and Steam games so I may or may not pop in one of those for a bit. We'll see...

I need to finish Mistborn book 3 too. I read like the first few chapters a month ago and haven;t touched it since for some reason.

The ME3 demo made me very dissapointed. They've destroyed the character graphics in my opinion. ME1 and ME2 look so much better.
I don't feel I will be able to continue the story with my hero since she won't look the same in ME3 :(
I had already preordered the CE but now I almost regret that I did.
Why must developers and programmers always change things that are already good?

If you regret then cancel your order. Simple.

you have to download and install Origin to play the demo . That is the reason for the demo ..they want that installed on your machine, so they can hopefully sell you more stuff. Not a big mystery.

Demo killed the last vestige of interest I had in ME3.

Terrible, terrible dialogue, Ashley looking like Pamela Anderson, Big McLargeHuge, horribly implemented context sensitive commands, and consolization ruining graphic options. On top of that, the reapers are suddenly the tripods from the War of the Worlds remake.

I find this odd to say on an MMO site, but I don't find multiplayer shooters with an implemented level grind very appealing.
