I'm pretty new with Origin so forgive me if this is obvious. I'm playing Mass Effect 3 and I'm trying to see what the achievements are. Problem is: I can't find an "Achievements" menu item in-game, and I can't find it in the Origin overlay either.

Is there a way to check the achievements without leaving the game?

It depends on what you mean by "in-game". You cannot get to them while actively playing as your character, but you can get to them from the main menu when you start the game. They're under Extras->Accomplishments.

By the way, is there an achievement for completing the game in hardcore? I'd check it myself, but I'm afraid of getting spoilers from the achievements. =) – Malabarba Mar 6 '12 at 6:15
@BruceConnor I see one for Insanity, but not for Hardcore. – Sterno Mar 6 '12 at 6:17
@BruceConnor ME series has generally been pretty good about spoiler-free achievements. – Raven Dreamer Mar 6 '12 at 6:33
Yeah, most of them were pretty vague, though there was a little bit you could glean from the list. – Sterno Mar 6 '12 at 6:36
@RavenDreamer I'm usually not too worried about this stuff, but with this game in particular I got spoiled even before release just by clicking the Add-Ons page in origin. =/ – Malabarba Mar 6 '12 at 7:26
