So being an early adopter of Mass Effect 3 has turned out to more of an event then I would have expected. This all started with Newegg shipping the incorrect product practically nullifying the idea of a “pre-order”. Not that I didn’t get a good price from them but considering time, effort and gasoline to return Madden 12 (with no compensation really) I would have been better just walking into Best Buy day of release. After calling Newegg CS (who are good at their jobs) they did a next day ship but that doesn’t help when UPS doesn’t deliver on Saturdays. My favorite thing about all of this is this wonderful sticker the over sized shipping box had on it.
When I finally got a chance to sit down with said title I went back and did a Save File Transfer of ME2 into ME3. It’s alarming I spent so much time with my ugly male renegade Shepard. He’s also a complete asshole and has a thing for aliens. Note: While galavanting though the galaxy he’s also had brief “interludes” with a Consort and a Criminal Biotic.
The next step on the import is confirming your appearance and of course I ran into this…
Since I’m taking screenshots with a HP Touchpad the above says “Mass Effect 3 cannot successfully determine the custom face code used by this imported save game. Please update your character’s appearance”.

Since I’m over character creators from this point I decided to just roll with default Shepard. Most of the best Mass Effect videos on the internet just use default Shepard it seems right morphing “my” Shepard in with everyone else and since I paid top dollar to get this game on release I’m not waiting for the patch.
When it’s all said and done all that matters is somebody should buy me a capture card.
