I preordered mine for PC through amazon. Had it preloaded already so at 12:02 (because EA servers are clearly behind) I was in game. I didn't start the singleplayer and jumped into multiplayer for a bit. About 6 maps, only 3 enemy types(Geth, Cerberus, Reaper). Same 3 difficulties. They added the Spectre Pack in the store and the BioWare points crap for people who wanna buy their way through it.

Unfortunately, I think me3 multiplayer is pretty demanding on the internet. My internet dropped during every game I was in at around wave 5(out of 11). This didn't happen with the demo. Not sure if anyone else has this problem. Kind of peeved me a little since I played like 5 games but I couldn't level up since I'd disconnect. you don't get anything if you d/c or crash or whatever. Whatever the issue, I'm pretty sure it's on my end.

I think I'll start the singleplayer tomorrow. I have to edit my me2 savefile so wrex isn't dead anymore. I didn't import a me1 save into me2 and maybe I was being dumb and didn't see the option when I was choosing all the events from me1 like saving ashley vs kaiden.

Be careful with that, like 4 of my edited saves don't show up for import.

It's 360 though.

Story is good so far, graphics seem much better in this than they did in the demo version for 360, that's for sure.

You probably won't be completely lost but you'll have missed out on a lot. The first one lays out the world(galaxy?) you're in, your place in it and the main bad guys. The second continues the story revealing the intentions of the bad guys. And I'm assuming 3 is the big showdown with the bad guys.

just go on youtube and watch a "let's play" video. You can watch the game from start to finish and skip through the boring parts.

Honestly, just play the first two. It's worth it. The games are excellent and if you play them in quick succession together you will be able to pick up on just how tightly woven the narrative is.

You can play 3 without the first two but I don't think the story would be nearly as compelling nor the interactions with certain characters being as interesting.

Actually, now that I've thought about it, you really only need to play the first one imo. I've started up a fresh game of ME2 while waiting for 3 to download
(poo's taking forever) and now remember that 2 can be summed up in a couple of sentences. If you want the full story immersion and character interactions then play 2 by all means, but the first is all you need to be into the game and know what's going on.
