Yeah. New hotmail, use it for windows live id, then sign up for expertzone and use walmart as your employer. I was going to make a dummy account for everyone but I can't make anymore live id's. They have some weird system that stops you from making so many in a certain time frame.

It does that from time to time. Especially in high traffic moments like today.

It didn't ask me for an ID. Just the store number, and phone number of the store. And customer service rep

Maybe I lucked out, I dunno, but I have never had a problem using Walmart in the past. Maybe it's just the store I use or something.

Ahhh this still works? I did this for the Gears beta, I'll try it here. Is there a limit to the gamertags you can make? I might be able to make another so I'll do a dummy account if so.

It's slow on the xbox, you need to allow the demo to fully download and then pass the info on. With PSN you just need to start the DL.

Just make a new live account, then download the demo with that account. Then delete the account from your system and give the login details to the next person. The demo will still be on your hard drive and you can play it with your main account.

Some random ass address I made up. Doesn't have to be real.

I don't know if there is a limit or not, but I know that there is a limit on live id's you can make in a certain time frame.

Gnarly charile, you have to go back to the home page where the banner was for the survey, it should say get your code now instead of training.

It's on the main page. There should be a banner about ME3. Click take this course, and then once you finish that go back to the home page and the banner should change to get your code.

Oh man. Default fem shep in the demo is the one from the trailer that was released today.

Also, since you can't bring in a character, they let you choose who you had die. Ashley, Kaiden, or your entire team from 2.

Pretty great. As expected.

I don't think default FemShep fits well with Hale's voice. Default looks too young to me.

Full creator. I didn't use it though.

Also, the stupid universal cooldown is still in :(

Walmart works, fools. Make sure you're a retail sales associate and use IE9, I couldn't get the banner to show up in firefox.

edit:shinobi if you can't get it to work I'll use my code for a dummy account, unless Papercut's got that covered.

Its probably not as bad, or maybe there is some class talents that reduce it later. Because i heard the same thing too about making biotic classes less weapons dependant than in ME2.

I just spammed singularity and warp trying to figure it out. It's still in, but at least with whatever default settings the demo is on the cooldown is super short.

Also, the Adept is a lot less weapon dependent. Heavy melee is basically a biotic explosion from your hand, and singularity+warp makes a pretty powerful explosion now.
