    I like what Bioware did with the whole MP Coop. It’s like Horde, but they throw in objectives every now and then. And I love the customization you can do with each character/class. I would love to get a room full of Stranded going, would be great fun. And tell Cornie I said happy birthday!

      Sounds great, guys! Sounds like Cornie wants to spend the evening playing BF3, rather than the demo anyway, so we might not get to it until the weekend. By they way, as of the 17th, the demo is available to everyone. Will pass on your greetings, Grymmie!

    Haven’t tried it yet. I never finished Mass Effect 2, so I bought it again, and now on my way to finishing it. I might not get ME 3 right away, but it’s on the wish list now for sure.

    Penny Arcade had this to say about the MP demo:

    Ths multiplayer, though. Holy shit. “Horde Mode” is an insulting characterization. The characters you create in this mode accrue experience and invest in skills just like a single player character would, except here you’re earning money that you use to buy what are essentially CCG style Booster Packs of varying quality. These packs contain single use items to help you through tough rounds, weapons and weapon upgrades, along with alien races to play as. It has many, many barbed compulsion mechanisms affixed to tentacles which dance and sway.

    Traps for the reptile mind can only get you so far, though, and what surprised me the most about it is how well it comports itself as a shooter. It’s not just a weathered sidearm resting on an ornate doily. It’s very “heavy” in my own estimation, methodical, a more nimble version of Resident Evil that retains that series’ omnipresent gravity. It had dodges, and cover, but when you traverse an area the sense that you are committed to it is impressed upon you. I didn’t entirely know what to think when they announced this portion; the rumors I’d heard were that it was intended as a stand-alone product at some point. I tried to imagine what universe such a thing would be desirable in. This universe, actually; it is desirable in this universe, as soon as is humanly possible.

      Played through 5 rounds last night with 3 other randoms. One was already a level 22 (and carried our team). I am just trying to get my “sea legs”, but first impression is… FUN!! I had to leave the 6th round (to put kids in bed), but saw some huge bosses in mech suits coming into the fray. Was disappointed that since I quit early, I got NONE of the experience points that I was racking up. On second thought though, this is actually pretty nice (quitters beware). Will play some more tonight (fo sho).

      Have fun with the ME3 demo tonight guys! Going to Atlantic City tonight, and for those of you who arent near New Jersey, its basically our version of Vegas. Lots of casinos/gambling and bars, so I wont be able to game tonight (which I really wanted to), but I will definitely be on Saturday night! If anyone will be on then, lets play some Gears! Maybe some Gotham City Impostors as well for anyone who has it.
