I rarely geek out over movies, music, games, etc about to be released, but this is the exception.
I am thrilled that the game will allow me to import my Shepard from ME1 and continue his/her adventures in the ME universe. Apparantly upwards of a hundred plot decisions you made in ME1 will flow through into ME2 and ME3 (it's slated to be a trilogy) in an overarching story. Classes are the same but have been highly reworked. Superior AI that varies between squadmates, enemy races, and difficulty level. And a risk that if you play through to a "bad" ending, that Shepard is dead and not able to import into ME3.
Anyone else waiting not so patiently?
