    hopefully that means a majorly improved planet exploring mechanism,
    mass effect 1 was repetitive, mass effect 2 was tedious, hopefully they can come up with a new and better solution

    as for the delay, if it results in a better game, i can live with a few months delay.

    Ah well, if it makes for a better game then it's worth it. Let's pray for no more delays.

    Looking forward to this, but I can wait.

    Shooter-meets-RPG?

    Oh no... Just... Oh no... If thos turns out to be some EA driven drivel designed solely to make as much money as possible from stupid teenage console owners then I honeslty do not know what I'll do... Pray to Minsc and Boo that that ominous statement turns out to be hyperbole...

    It's probably for the best, ME3 was going to get swamped by other games in the pre-Christmas rush otherwise, like the next CoD etc.

    More mass market appeal sounds a bit worrying.

    I'm willing to wait, gives me time to playthrough ME2 properly :)

    Other than the mining I ME2 exceeded my expectations gameplay wise. I hope they don't take a step backwards with more mass market appeal. I thought things were plenty simplified. Fingers crossed on them getting the end of the trilogy right too, I'm trying to keep my expectations in check.

    And yeah, what's a few months delay if it means they get it right.

    "One of the things that Ray Muzyuka and the team up in Edmonton have done is essentially step-by-step adjust the gameplay mechanics and some of the features that you'll see at E3 to put this in a genre equivalent to shooter-meets-RPG," said EA boss John Riccitiello in an investor conference, "and essentially address a much larger MARKET OPPORTUNITY than Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 began to approach. "
    Yeah, the above sure doesn't sound like it bodes well for us

    After Joe's scathing SWTOR Preview, he obviously shocked the entire Bioware office into reexamining everything ;>.

    After what the other team did to Dragon Age 2..I don't know what to think about this now.

    I just hope it has some of the original games RPG elements.

    What? I don't see how they could simplify Mass Effect any more. They talk as if ME2 was hardcore or something.
