    The hacking and...er, the other one, weren't actually that bad. Once you got the upgrade for each mini game it gave you a ton of time to do them. I don't think I ever failed one, and I'm generally a failure at those kinds of things.

    I saw somewhere, can't remember where right now but it did show the hacking mini-game.
    EA is the anti-Midas touch company. Everything they touch turns to garbage.

    I can not find any other data. But I do not think the hacking mini game is in it.

    the code for hacking mini games and for the other mini games that we had for the last trainer was in the demo, even though it wasn't incorporated into the demo gameplay-

    whether or not this will be in the final game is speculation, but i'd say likely since the code is still there-

    fyi,
    Cal

    Oh well maybe it will be in it. I still hope its not tho. I failed maybe 4 out of 10. Could never quiet get my mouse over fast enough :s

    I'm lucky since I can turn my mouse sensitivity up or down on the fly. Gaming mice love you.

    Right sadly Mass Effect 3 will keep the mining mini-game, "it serves a purpose"

    Casey Hudson of BioWare confirms the return of the planet scanning mini-game, where players plunder worlds for resources for their ship.

    It will be in Mass Effect 3 - "functionally" has purpose, with feedback saying it was "strangely addictive". Didn't expect fans to strip mine galaxy.

    "The feedback we had prior to releasing the game was generally exactly that. It was like, 'It's strangely addictive. It's kind of therapeutic'. But there were different personality types, too," lead producer Hudson tells VideoGamer.com in an interview (Link).

    "And one of the personality types that we hadn't encountered was there were a lot of people that when they know that they can go and get resources through something like that, they literally want to mine the entire galaxy that night."

    "And then, yeah, when you spend eight hours in a mini-game, it does become… there's only so much too it. And we never expected that it'd be played that way."

    "We thought people would noodle in it a bit, get a few resources to get an upgrade, and then go back and do the rest of the game," he continued.

    They need the mining min-game for the next sequel - it servers a vital role in feeding the player resources which can then be spent on investing in new technology. Ship upgrades and better weaponry or armour relied on several types of mineral.

    "Again, when you look at the feedback, there are things that people liked about it, and functionally it serves a purpose. I don't think there's a problem with any of those."

    "I think it's the way people relied on it, and the way we relied on it maybe too much in parts of the story. And also just when you think about the speed of it," noted Hudson.

    So we can likely expect an improved mining scanner next time around, with the greater galaxy picked clean in the name of war against the Reapers. Mass Effect 3 won't be unveiling to us for "quite a few months" yet warns Hudson, but DLC will stream (Link).

    I did strip mine several clusters, but never the enire galaxy.

    Well, either way, not too much longer before we find out about those mini-games.

    Looking forward to it.

    If it's anything like the ME2 Trainer it will rock!

    Even though the old coding for the hacking mini-games may still be in the code, during the demo you didn't have to play a mini-game for the locked doors, Shepard would just move their omni-tool over it to hack it open. Hopefully thy will keep it like that in the actual game.

    The first time I played ME2 I strip-mined the entire galaxy. I had enough coffee, so why not. Same in ME1, I would drive the entire zone, every zone I could land in, to find every resource I could. Subsequent plays I still sent at least 1 probe to every planet, but maybe my OCD kicks in because I don't feel satisfied until I hear the little chimes saying I've found enough resources on a single planet to be worthwhile before leaving to hit the next.

    The bypass and hacking kicked me in the daddy-bags a few times when I forgot to turn on the trainer. I never liked those 2 game at all, and hope they don't appear too often in ME3.
