I lost my save files when I got a new computer, expecting Steam sync to actually sync save state is too much to ask I guess. Replying through 2, no desire to do 1 again, and I realize how indifferent I am towards the game.

You can download other peoples' saves if you want. I think the website is masseffectsaves.com or some such. I came out to Afghanistan without mine, and I picked up a Paragon save that was close enough that I don't care. Then I downloaded a save editor so I could edit Shepard's first name to what I want.

I did, I grabbed a ME1 save that was close enough to what I wanted, only difference as I sacrificed the council and this save saved them. I greatly enjoy the combat missions (outside fo stupid boss fights), I just don't want to space bar through 15 hours of dialog.

I recently reinstalled ME3 and discovered that multiplayer got even better in my absence.

Care to elaborate?

I had a massive boner for the Multiplayer mode back when the game released, and I've been itching to try it again, but feared there wouldn't be enough players anymore.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I've never had to wait more than a minute or two for a game, there are loads of new classes now, some that really change up the gameplay and enough to cover most play styles, still surprisingly fun for something I never thought I'd play.

Basically, this.

There's lots of new fun stuff, from guns, to race/class combos (including playable Vorcha and Voluses, both of which are totally awesome), to maps, to objective waves, to a whole new enemy faction. Yes, the Collectors are back - apparently, we didn't quite kill them all in ME2.

The old stuff's gotten better as well - classic maps now have "hazard" variants, old guns are more balanced, some of the more annoying bugs got fixed (e.g., it's no longer a death sentence to play Vanguard off-host), and there were some nice quality of life improvements (fire/cryo explosions now trigger like biotics/tech bursts - kills are no longer required).

Is it really a collector? Wouldn't it be a Protean like the From Ashes squadmate?

"When the Reaper-killer known as Leviathan fought the Collectors, it severed their connection to Harbinger with a thrall device. Most Collector forces died as a result, but a few surivived. Now, these rare individuals fight for the memory of their people, a proud race broken by the Reapers.

Protheans appointed avatars to embody and model a single virtue for their society. The Awakened Collectors' virtue is vengeance."

If that image was any lower in resolution I'm sure it'd be made out of green text on a black display screen.

I didn't even know a new DLC was coming out until the day before it was scheduled to come out. I ended up getting the krogan warlord and tried him out for a few matches. Fun but I'm not really into the melee part of the game. I went back to the turian ghost for most of the day and ended up unlocking the new EDI character as well. It has been months but it is always fun to come back when a new DLC comes out. I'm so far behind though. I have a massive amount of characters to unlock yet. A few friends started playing again too so it is a nice distraction for the time being.

Thread necro!

So I FINALLY got a PS3 last September (Fuck paying $60 to watch blu rays on my computer every 2 years) and got the trilogy for christmas. Made a slight noob mistake of rolling the base class for 1. However, I also made a renegade shep who wants to know if she HAS to go to Virmire? I'm guessing yes for all the storyline reasons, but the choice? God, I went there on my male paragon soldier expecting to lose a squadmate thanks to minor spoilers, but for it o be so sadistic of a choice?
For reference , I had Keidan go on the suicide mission metaexpecting to off him, then came the next part and it felt like the Normandy could out run the explosion, but not the AA tower....

Also, I was under the impression Shepard dies at the end of ME1?

After watching Captain America: Winter Soldier, I became convinced that Kai Leng would actually work if he could just shut up.

No taunts, no emails, no monologues - just a living weapon that appears at the most inopportune moments and brutally murders crucial NPCs (and is actually your squadmate that was abandoned on Virmire and got recovered by Cerberus).
