Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer – Paul’s thoughts

The worst case scenario

So it was confirmed today that Mass Effect 3 is going to have a multiplayer component.  Casey Hudson, executive producer of the Mass Effect series confirmed via twitter that at the very least we’ll be having co-op multiplayer missions. He didn’t say anymore than that though, I assume it is because any more details would surely break the 140 tweet character limit. True to form, posters on the official Bioware forums have exploded with their typical acerbic attitude (P.S. don’t visit the official Bioware forums unless you want your head to explode.) But honestly, I cannot see the reasoning behind such anger other than maybe being upset at Bioware for being so damned hesitant to confirm the multiplayer rumours over the last couple of months. But even so,  people just need to freaking relax. Side note: I like how the release date delay till next year makes a lot more sense now!

So what do I think of this announcement?
