Mass Effect 3 [Massive Spoilers]

I started a thread on ME3 over a year ago, when all we had was a teaser trailer. Now, we have a heck of a lot more. Specifically, a demo (out for Xbox 360 and PC, coming soon to PS3) - anyone checked it out yet?

The release date is a few short weeks away - 6th March in America, 9th in Europe.

I'll be picking it up for Xbox 360, since my saves are on that medium, creating a direct chain back to the character and decisions I made in 2007 (my Earthborn Adept Sole Survivor, generally paragon but with a bit of a rough edge), which is absolutely insane and unique in video game history as far as I can tell. It's also unique in that your squadmates from previous games can be killed - if they are, they won't return for the third game. My only worries are that I'll be unable to pick out the exact save I want to import and remembering my BioWare account details for future DLC and stuff.

The only bad news is that on the PC it looks like you need EA's Origins, which can generously be described as a Steam knock-off. I'm watching a let's play of the demo since I can't be bothered with that nonsense, looks to continue the tradition of the trilogy improving with each instalment.

Moderator's Note:
This thread gets pretty full of endgame spoilers very quickly. If you're still playing through the game, I sincerely recommend starting a new thread if you want an unspoiled discussion of the game. Read on at your own peril.
