First off, BioWare's Yannick Roy reassured one fan that BioWare is making "sure to be friendly both to old fans and to newcomers." He also promised that the character animations during gameplay would be much smoother, reassuring, "It's one of the things we would like to improve, yes."
Finally a self-proclaimed "gaymer" asked if there would be same sex romances possible in the new Mass Effect. Roy replied, "There is no reason to believe otherwise at this point, don't worry! :-)"
More intriguingly, BioWare's Jonathan Warner announced, "A successful first project review for our new IP project today. Life is good!", while project director Casey Hudson revealed that the teams that worked on Knights of the Old Republic and Mass Effect were working on it, stating, "Most of our core team that worked on SWKOTOR has been together throughout the Mass Effect series, and now our new IP project."
