I'll admit I am a Mass Effect fanboy. It's just something about the space genre, building a crew, saving galaxies, and abilities that throw people across the room I guess. My co-workers probably get annoyed with me hyping it up all the time. I totally follow Casey Hudson, the Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series, on twitter (@CaseyDHudson). You should too.
Anyways, Casey recently announced that there will in fact be multiplayer in Mass Effect 3. This is a controversial subject for fans of the Mass Effect series because, up until now, every game has been solely single-player and debatably one of the best RPG/Action/Adventure/Shooter experiences out there.
I think the fear is that Bioware would have to compromise some of that greatness in order to implement multiplayer capabilities. From what it sounds like, the multiplayer will be more along the lines of co-operative play rather than PvP. I have mixed feelings but I am confident in Bioware's ability to meet the desires of their gamers.
Any other ME fans out there? What do you think?

In my personal opinion, it will be like the Bioshock 2 multiplayer. I am also a Mass Effect Fangirl and I think it's a great concept, but I don't know if it will fly. I tried out the Bioshock 2 multiplayer, and wasn't really impressed. The Big Daddy mode was fun, but I don't necessarily think it added any significant value to the game.
I think this will be similar to adding multiplayer to ME3. Will it add significant value? How will it be unique to ME? If it flops and doesn't make any impact to ME3 as a whole, could it potentially hurt the overall awesomeness of the game?
Those are my questions.
