My decisions made no difference at the end of ME3

Bundle ALL DLC and the three games, and for $40 I'd be in.

Just wait between weeks to 1 month after release. Price will drop when they figure out those who wanted to play it already did when the games came out.

Most likely, given the timing, the bundle will include the DLC for ME1 and 2, but not 3.

I wonder if there will be any additional improvements. Since I already own the games + the DLC I'm interested in, that would be the only reason for me to grab this. A light cover- and shooting mechanics overhaul for ME1 would be nice, for one. The same goes for the incredibly clunky inventory and tedious loot and weapon mods stuff (made even worse by the aforementioned inventory). I'd really like to replay ME1 for the story stuff at some point, but the overall gameplay is just way off in so many ways I've never been able to get very far in any of my attempts. Plus, the majority of the game is spent doing side-quests that are mind-bogglingly generic and boring.

I did enjoy the first and second installments. But I got the first for $5 and the second for free, so that might have something to do with it. Won't play the 3rd until it's $5.

Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

Just checked origin, 60% sale on many games, you buy all three on PC and they will cost $30. (right now)

But this package is $60!? If they include all the dlc then I can understand this but looking at the contents I don't see extra discs. First game is 1 disc, 2nd and 3rd game are 2 discs each, so seems unlikely.

I love the product image where is says Exclusive Artwork! It's the fucking box! Do they expect you to display it open like that on a shelf? Why can't they include a poster or something, a t-shirt. Can you get anymore barebones than this offering? We made a BOX!!! It holds all the discs!!! For only $60!? Why do you have to suck so bad Bioware? Put something in this package that makes it interesting. How about making the box big enough to hold and 8.5 x 11 artwork thing that you can frame. Make it all nice and shiny. Throw in an N7 patch. How about a keychain that looks like a sniper rifle? Doesn't the new ending have all these stills that people really liked? He here is a crazy idea, print those on high quality paper and put those in.

Jeez, these guys could learn a thing or two from kickstarter.

Make it easier to get Bring Down the Sky, unify the face creator, and include an all-paths save editor, then we'll talk.

This would have been good (including DLC etc) if I didn't already own everything in bits and pieces.

I plan to play again once all the DLC is done and dusted (and cheap), probably next year.

Everything up to the last 15 minutes is great for me, and tbh the stills ending they finally added would have been a perfect wrap up to the series if the deus ex machina crucible bullshit wasn't so bloody annoying (I personally love the idea of the indoctrination ending).

    I went to the 'Water and Ice' store near my house and I asked to see they're 'Secret Menu'.

    Won't happen, but would be awesome if they upgraded the engine of ME1/2 and made it one 'seamless' game, or at the very least added some new content.

    $60 seems laughable for this. I bought the first on on steam for $5 and the second on amazon for $7.50. Origin sales have it super cheap often seems like this is asking a lot.

    If it comes with all of the DLC for all three games and I find it for somewhere between 40 and 50 bucks...I might be convinced to buy it for PC and give my individual copies to one of my kids. If it releases as just the vanilla games they can fuck off at that price, and pretty much any other.

    Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffthahahahahahahah

    Seriously, though, at least PS3 users finally get ME1. Wonder how much EA had to pay Microsoft for the publishing rights...
