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.

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.

CapsLocke1054d ago

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.

AndrewLB1054d ago

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.

I just hear "ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL"...

MizTv1054d ago

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

Roccetarius1054d ago (Edited 1054d ago )

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.

mightyhokie1054d ago

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

AndrewLB1054d ago

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.
