False. Doing that only makes achieving the "best" ending possible easier.

The ONLY thing that does is decrease the penalty for the groups that join your alliance making it easier to hit 100% pwnage.

I lol'd quite a few times when Joker got his new robot girlfriend.
And almost constant epic moment music..

OMFG!!! I love a lot of the dialog they added between characters that you need to speak to. Standing in the cockpit listening to Garrus and Joker crack jokes at each other. So much funneh!

At certain readiness levels your decisions in the final outcome decide if earth is destroyed and so on. Certain things can only happen at certain readiness levels.

1. Derp.

2. It is not required to do multiplayer or any phone apps to hit 100% EMS.

edit: How EMS and the "perfect" ending works...

Readiness Rating = Galactic Readiness.

This percentage is multiplied by your Total Military Strength. Your Effective Military Strength is your actual rating.

IE you have a TMS of 3000, but only have a Readiness Rating of 50%, thus your EMS is 1500. Your EMS is what is factored into the games various endings.

Doing Multiplayer or the phone apps will increase your Readiness Rating percentage, meaning you have to do less exploration and farming to achieve max EMS. However you do not need to do MP or the phone apps to max out EMS.

The book makes it sound much more confusing. I understand it now.

Alright, where the **** do I find

Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)
Sedaris. Supposedly in a C-Sec prison cell somewhere, but I can't find it.


****ing menu interfaces in this game are terrible for PC and the new journal menu seems even less helpful this time out.

For those who played the "from ashes" DLC, who thinks that should have been part of the full release? I think it should have been part of the full release after playing it... but I don't regret paying the extra $10. Pretty good story.

That's the one where you get the Proethean (or whatever) as a squad member, right?

If so, then yes should have been part of the game.

I thought there was going to be co-op? Don't tell me they just meant the survival style multiplayer.

Also, weren't you supposed to get exclusive weapons or something if you pre-ordered the game? Or was that just Gamestop?

I don't think it was just gamestop. My wife preordered ME3 as a gift to me at Best Buy. I purchased it on release day, and Best Buy sent an email to my wife with the Promo code. You enter the promo code in the redeem promo page after you login:
http://social.bioware.com/redeem

After you enter the promo code... the M55 Argus Assault Rifle will show under registered games section. To get the gun, go into your ME3 game, and go to the shuttle bay in the Normandy, and it will show up on the weapons bench.

I would think that other stores and websites would do the same if you preordered from them.

After playing 'From Ashes' the only thing I will say is... I think I do miss the YMIR mechs after all. Maybe its because I'm insanity but holy hell those Cerberus forces are like the fist of an angry god sometimes. And it's never just a small squad of them, it's waves.

Weird, I got it from Best Buy. Maybe the code is on my receipt or something. They emailed my DLC code to me.

30mins until my work week is over. Then sleep.

Then ME3!

Thanks for reminding me about the promo code. Amazon emailed me mine, and I would've forgot to load it probably.

Why couldn't this come out last week when I had NOTHING to do ...

Maybe you have it from the same code. Did you go to the weapons bench, click on Assault Rifle, and scroll through the different types?
