Where do you go to actually get a code? I finished the quiz but there's no where to go after that.

Go back to the home page and there will be a banner at the top that says click to redeem your code.

Is there a PS3 version of the demo or is it just 360? I wasn't going to play the SP portion of the demo but I was wondering if someone could do comparisons.

Combat is a lot more satisfying and fluid. The powers still seem limited and I don't know how I feel about the branching thing yet.

Also, you couldnt talk to your squadmates whenever in the game, I thought that was in? All in all it's a good shooter. Glad they removed the death veins and I thought it was cool that if you try to fire with no ammo, the ME1 Overheat sound plays.

And about Kinect, it's totally not for me. I was somewhat excited about it, but it's way more of a hassle than its worth. And I found saying the dialogue out loud sort of takes you out of the experience... and I was having a lot of problems with Kinect thinking I said something and it actually got liara killed at one point. I was flanking the turret and then all the sudden Kinect thought I told Liara to run in front of the turret (no joke) and she died. Haha, pretty clear I wont be using this!

Only 360 at the moment. PS3 and PC demos will probably be released on the 14th,

Steps to get super awesome Mass Effect codes:

1. Create a Hotmail Account

4. Use Walmart's store locator http://www.walmart.com/storeLocator/ca_storefinder.do
To find your store's number and phone number

5. Submit your registration

6. Verify account through the e-mail you should get

7. Take Mass Effect 3 quiz on ExpertZones site by going to > Training and Resources > 360 > Xbox Games. You should see the quiz there.

Go to the Expert Zone site and say you're a Wal-Mart retail sales associate, and input a real store number/phone number using a store locator.

Thanks! I've finished the quiz and passed (got 80% and could'nt be asked to get 100) and I still have no banner. Just the "take the course" one that appeared originally.

Losing interest in trying to get this demo, might as well just wait at this point. -_-

I just did it 20 minutes ago on Safari. It's more of a drop down than a banner. Don't just expect it to be there waiting for you.

You could try refreshing or taking it again. I took the quiz on IE and it showed up the second time I took it.

It seems like certain accounts are getting flagged for demo access while others aren't. I had to make two accounts cause no matter what I did the first account I made was just getting the generic take ME3 quiz banner even after finishing it. The second account got the "Get access to ME3 demo by taking the quiz" banner straight away and after I finished it the banner switched to the get your code now banner.

Just finished the demo!

Loved:

+Combat is much more refined. Combined the fluid nature of ME2 with some RPG mechanics akin to ME1.

+Giant skill trees.

Hated:

-Dark color of graphics. I don't know what it is, but something rubs me the wrong way. Mass Effect 1 and 2 are colorful games, but here the colors look very dull. Don't know how else to describe it.

Back during the leak and via some developer comments, it was mentioned that the Action/Story/RPG choice was really just setting up presets in an option menu down the line for combat difficulty and dialogue style. Is that still how it's done? What if you try to set dialogue to auto-conversations and combat to "story" difficulty? (Not saying I want to do this, I'm just curious.)

Impressions:

Pros:

+ Combat feels more fluid and snappier than ME2. A massive difference between the first game and here.

+ Game looks real nice overall with smooth animations during combat.

+ Solid voice acting and amazing music during one particular scene.

+ Wrex! Need I say more?

Cons:


- Facial animation still not where it should be, however it's a bit better than ME 1 and 2

- Framerate dips during cutscenes at times

- Could be more colorful

Overall, I enjoyed it quite a bit even though it's the same demo I played earlier through the leak.

This is what you should be looking for. If it's not on the first panel, don't fret - it could be on any of them.

Some one that has it should put it on a Xbox formatted USB drive then find it via their PC then up load it somewhere.

If it doesn't have anything new added to it since the leaked version then I'll just wait till the full game is out. I was hoping to try out the Kinect stuff.

Yep, I don't see that at all.

On their forums, it says Walmart employees don't qualify, but people here put Walmart as their employer, didn't they?
