I am new to mass effect, Got the 3rd one for free so starting with it. I did the little beginning action, Then ended up on a ship. How do I stay on the main story? I found how to use the warp to fly the little ship from planet to planet, occasionally finding action, is that the story..? Just rescued female krog!
I know its probably a bit too late now but this should answer everything and help you further on: http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Mass_Effect_3_Guide Also I found this guide very useful even for my 3rd playthrough: http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Equipment_Guide_(Mass_Effect_3) I would recommend playing at least Mass Effect 2 because the majority of the emotional thrills of Mass Effect 3 depends on how attached you are to characters from Mass Effect 2
