Damn, I know some PC-only gamers who will be annoyed by this.

Oh well, at least it isn't a HUGE delay.

Another Xbox game I can play on my PC. If I wanted to that is...

ruibing3902d ago

I wouldn't mind gaming on my PC, but I just hate all the driver issues related with the different OS. But I'll probably try this game on my laptop since I don't have a 360.

Hmm same day as MGS4 in europe i think. I'll wait till late to pick mass effect up now.

Ps3 comes first especially when its MGS4 :P

MGS is released June 12th, Worldwide.

Ah, a couple of weeks is nothing to get stressed over.

I've been waiting for what seems like forever now anyhow. I frowned on getting it for my 360, 1. because of all the little problems my friends complained about and 2. I knew it would be a matter of time before DLC arrived and I should get that all together with the PC version.

Cant wait. Anyone give me an estimate on how long the game is (hours)? I want to make sure I complete it before MGS.

on my first playthrough which i made it to lvl 52 before finising the game (cap is 60) and did pretty much every side quest i found (but still missed some) it took me 58 hours.

Mass effect is by far the most cinematic game ive ever played and its definatley worth a look for RPG fans sick of turn based combat.i would go so far as to say it edges out Orange box as my GOTY 2007.

Dont be blinded by console fanboyism give this game a shot!

Fishy Fingers3902d ago

Thank you dude, I really appreciate the advice. 50 hours is easily do-able before june 12th which is great. I really didnt want to rush through it after waiting so long for its PC release.

+bubble for you bro.

Oh "Dont be blinded by console fanboyism" dude that wasted on me, I'm no one's fanboy, I have every system out there :)

That seems kind of long. I finished out at a level 48, did more than half of the side quests and it took me 23hrs. I think thats more along the average time. Anyways, its a great game, and the first good rpg this gen imo. (unless you want to count bioshock, which was more rpg than fps)

Charlie26883902d ago

the length is depending on what you do

the main quest is kind of short around 15 hours on normal difficulty

BUT a HUGE part of the Mass Effect experience is the sidequest that will take around 20-25 hours to complete and you could take even more since some quest involve collection stuff and that depend on your luck or skills searching for them

for example In my first play thru I got to level 50 (max level on first play) completing around 95% of the sidequest and leaving only the 5% of quest I couldn't complete cuz of my specific character creation and it all took around 48 hours

at the end Mass Effect is one of THE best RPGs ive played and my top RPG (and maybe even overall game) of 07 next to The Witcher and I TOTALY recommend getting it either for the 360 or the upcoming PC version
