Bioware seem to be making some good progress with the new Mass Effect 4 game, which is thought to have the name of Mass Effect 4. Bioware said on Twitter that the game was coming along great and fans were happy to hear it.
The memory of Mass Effects 3's ending is still too raw *wipes tear away*. Ah, if only Drew Karpyshyn had stayed on as lead writer. Make the story completely separate from the original trilogy, please. Don't beat a dead horse.
I wish they'd make a "Mass Effect: The Rachni Wars" game. You could play a Krogan in the Rachni Wars... It would be so much fun.
Still awaiting a Mass Effect movie, or rather a trilogy. Story is too unique and too epic to not put it on the big screen.
Please god no
I agree. I really want it to be years later with tons of events that have happened since. I wouldn't mind if they threw in Shepard or some of the old characters as part of the story or whatever but I want a new universe of people and stories.
I knew it. I just knew that people STILL be bitching on the ending. But not the first comment... not like this :[
Don't beat a dead horse? Stop talking about the ending of ME3.
Mass Effect 3's ending was without a doubt the biggest insult to those of us who played the series for years, carefully making decisions with the hopes they were correct and we'd get the ending we desired... Just like Casey Hudson had promised. He clearly told fans that all our choices through all 3 games would influence dozens of outcomes and how they would never slap players with some predetermined A, B, or C ending that had little to no correlation with what you did. It was widely reported even by one of the series main writers that Casey Hudson pretty much sent them home, and he and a few others finished the game without any consultation with the guys who wrote the whole series. I still have the theory that everyone decided to go on vacation and told the new intern that it's his job to finish the game. Because nobody who had been part of that dev team would have thrown out every decision you made through three games only to do exactly what Hudson said they wouldn't do, an A, B, C ending. lol. I will not pay for their products ever again. TPB for me.
Every time I hear about a game made by a company EA bought for some reason I always think about that scene in Ghostbusters where Dana Barret is possessed by Zool. "There is no Bioware only EA"
I just hear "ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL"...
There is NO Dana only ZOOL!
What a terrible article. "So it looks like they're working on Mass Effect". Yea, no shit.
Really cant wait to see what Bioware have got instore for this amazing universe
My issue with ME3 wasn't so much the ending, its just the overall game was so sloppily done and it felt like a very cheap game. I hear ME4 will be on frostbite, so a much needed boost to graphical quality is anticipated. But they will have to do much more in terms of gameplay in order to make it better than ME3
ME3 was indeed not a very good game overall. Not just the ending, but how things were designed in general. It felt like a DA2 game, in which they hardly tried to make a compelling product. Whatever they do with this game, shouldn't have anything to do with previous history.
I didn't mind the endings really. And I def think it was better than DA2, but that was mainly because ME2 was possibly the best game I've ever played. I loved the 'Seven Samurai' storyline and all the characters. I get you though. I've thought about how they could pull this off. If they go to the past then humans are not involved unless they were abducted or something. If you go the future that might be interesting but the faaaaar distant future. I have faith in BioWare (preparing self for 'disagrees'). =P
The things that killed ME3 for me were obviously the ending which Casey Hudson did himself without the writers input, the focus on multiplayer, the lack of focus on dialogue (which IS the thing that makes Mass Effect such a great game. crazy isn't it?), the stupid, idiotic space-ninja, and how after 3 games and countless hours where your goal is to stop the Reapers... that all gets thrown out the window for the space-brat. I'm still pissed that after 3 games, there was only a single encounter with a Reaper where you actually had a real conversation with it. I don't count the encounter on Rannoch since you really didn't have meaningful dialog choices. I doubt there is anyone who didn't get a chill down their spine in ME1 where you talk with soverign. man that was epic.
I'm beyond stoked. I played the hell out of all the MEs, including all the DLC. I played each game at least 5 times (first paragon femshep, then renegade maleshep, then renegade femshep, then paragon maleshep, then again as femshep just because she was the best...). Totally brilliant...brilliant story, brilliant acting, brilliant art, brilliant universe, brilliant everything. I thought the bruhaha over the ending was silly. The endings were great, all of them. so im def interested in seeing what they do, especially with the cloud and new tech.
"So it looks like they're working on Mass Effect" that was genius
Man, I wonder how they figured that out?
Illusive "Man" must have told them...
is it really called ME4? I thought they said Shepard's story line was over.
No official title yet, but 4 is a placeholder likely.
I can't bear to read anymore comments about the ending of mass effect 3. However miserable it made people feel (myself not included because I waited for the revised ending and was very happy with it) it can't make them feel as miserable as I am having to read the same boring comments over and over again. We get it some people didnt like it and millions of other people jumped on the hate bandwagon. Move on!!
Am I the only one who wants to see a Mass effect RTS?
I wouldn't mind one. EA and RTS though is scary thought. They couldn't even satisfy themselves enough to say that they latest C&C game they were building would sell.
Eh. Maybe if it was made by a different company.
tbh I don't think they have the balls to make a sequel where they have to choose one of the endings over the other 2. But I hope it's not a prequel.
I expect a VGA teaser.
Yeah, it's "EAware" now and it wont be a groundbreaking game which will enhance the RPG genre(unlike a CDProject's project) but it will still be big and it will have certain quality. I mean I'm still excited for new bioware games. There arent many good rpg devs and bioware is still decent.
This articles author is an idiot. Correcting him: - Commander Shepard in NO WAY plays a part in the new Mass Effect game. - There is NO evidence suggesting that the next title will be called Mass Effect 4. - There is NO evidence that ANY of the characters from the Mass Effect series will play a role in the new game. This author is a moron. He also spells Mass Effect wrong. Pfft
The ending sucked, yes. However, the Franchise is awesome. I can't wait. One of the best character-driven franchises I've played!
No links to any of the tweets mentioned in the article. How'd this thing get approval?
