    apparently the widescreen support isn't great.

    i don't remember the originals having good support either, pretty sure something like flawless widescreen was needed. I enjoyed most of the series and how they often interconnected or choices you made came back later on. It was just #3's ending that ruined it. Didn't play much more then 30mins of Andromeda it did look glorious in 4k though

    I've only encountered an audio bug in the new edition and I gotta say it's good to be back. I love these games.

    Probably not me. I loved the games and left no rock unturned when I played them back then, so I don't know what could I do differently. I even finished Andromeda...didn't do all the collectables though, it was not good enough for that.

    Anyone know if the weapon and movement systems are the same through out the trilogy?

    Yeh same here. I'm still salty that I couldn't get the final ending to ME3 because there's basically no one playing the online game anymore.

    Yeh but i don't think I can bring myself to do everything all over again just for it now. Maybe in a few years when it's like $5 and I'm really bored haha

    I would love to, This is something I've wanted forever. Just don't have the time or energy these days. Haven't even looked at the price, but I reckon I'd pay it, if I had the time to play.

    I started off with a dodgy russian version of ME3 for a "LAN" game, and then I fired up the single player the next morning and I was hooked! Finished ME3, and had to go back to the start. Can't remember what order I played them in, but I'm pretty sure I played ME1 once, ME2 twice and ME3 3 times!

    Loved the story of ME1, but couldn't handle the gameplay after playing ME2 & ME3.

    gameplay feels like it's been changed up in 1 to me, but it's a long time since i played the original.

    i'm nearly 20 hours in.

    I remember me1 very well...
    me1 felt very clunky and that reload/overheat thing, took awhile to get use, huge maps of rpg nothingness. Not to mention the countless hours flying across space to collect minerals (I enjoyed this alot for some reason).
    me2 was smoother/faster gameplay (much smaller and simple linear console maps)
    me3 = cod blackops (well, i thought so anyways), flogged coop as vanguard

    I'd be keen if they had the same mechanics through out the series.

    1 still has weapons cooldown, the maps you drive on are the same.

    which one had the mining from space - i hated that.

    i dont mind if they have the cooldown type weapons, I just hope it is the same across all 3 games

    ME1 had the mining
