Will the multiplayer have split-screen?

multiplayer in this game might actually get me to wanna buy it. I've played so many games that have no online to them, and, no matter how much they put into them they get boring real fast. just saying, they might reach a larger group of people getting more interested in it

Sorry for my english i'm french, but why do you destroy a epique game, who touch sky's god, with a multiplayers of sh.te? you realy read all comment of gamers on forums in world ? you want a second DAO II ? What do you doing? don't listen EA. You kill a god with a multi. Respect Mass Effect respect your work. Don't for me but for you and everybody. A next game with multi in Mass Effect univers ok but a multi inside Mass Effect 3 with shepard story, just this idea is an act of vandalism.

Any hints on what it'll be like? I'm hoping for the quick paced combat of Crysis 2 but in 3rd person with more linear and flat maps with a cover system with Biotics, Tech, and Soldier combinations instead of a suit with stealth, speed, and power settings. Or is it going to be large Merc skirmishes or human-geth battles? Or just a big virtual reality combat simulator almost like AC Brotherhood?

Ok, seriously, what is up with those faces? Wrex looks fine, but Sheploo and Liara look horrible.

Also, how can you call it a December issue when it's going on sale in October? This is either the October or November issue, not December.

Believe us -- our issue dates and their actual corresponding calendar dates are as mysterious as the pyramids, even to us. Our December does come out in October, we carry thirteen issues a year (including a Holiday issue). The math gets a little nuts towards the end of the year because our magazine goes on sale every 28-30 days, pretty much.

Haste in Time

The dates you do the magazine comes out for a certain month usually ahead of time in oreder to cover that pecticular month's games and events. Its not hard to understand why OXM and you Francesca of OXM all do it this way. Love the articale. Thanks from a long time OXM subscriber! I hope to keep coming back, for more goods on the work that devlopers and publishers do. So Keep it coming! :]Also, my three cents on the articale is: 1. We have asked about a co-op multiplayer feature every year that ME has come out. It should not be very surprising at all that they do this. From what I've read on comments: I may never have played more than the first DOA (horrible quality control in my opinion) and DOA II's demo. However, this wont stop me getting a collectors copy or pre-ordering it. 2. Bioware and EA are two serperate companies. I doubt that Bioware would just decide to purposely screw up thier biggest money-making title and not to mention of the first? right. Also Bioware planned ME as a triology, so the story is all planned out, most of the events and game features too. The only thing that may be additional is anything new during development, and they dont make very light choices, its usually give that 110% or nothing. Heck, I didnt need to work at Bio-Ware to know or expect this. Agian, We all asked and we all shall be recivied. Hooray! for Co-op! 3. I wonder if Co-op is 2p? or 4p? I think that 2p makes sense and doesn't seem distract from the series as a whole too much. I would not be too surpriesd at the choice of a 2p mode. I think if they came up with a 4p mode it may be interesting, but I'd probly kill the game experiance to have jumped from solo to suddenly 4 other "human" controlled people. Hey though I'll play the game eitheir way when it comes out, its all cool with me. After all its ultimatley up to you on how you wnat to play. Just if we do have Co-op 2p or 4p... ask Bio-Ware to add a "Private Invite" only feature for Co-op so the fans can get along and just adept fine. Cause, I dont need someone whom went to the luanch night & maybe is 4+ hours into the game to spoil it. witha Private feature, let that be my own screw up not yours. What do you think?
