GOONL!NE: According to a brand new listing, from the most unlikely of places, Mass Effect 2 will now be releasing in late 2009.
This Facebook was started by Bioware so I'm going to approve. And oh please let this be true!! GOTY 09 if it does happen and it moves to my #1 most anticipated game of this year. Just as long as they didn't rush it to get it out at this holiday.
This will be my GOTY 2009, please let this be true. ME2 = greatness.
But my GOTY is Mafia II. Have you guys seen the latest trailer? That game is top notch. http://www.gametrailers.com...
im a ps3 fan but this game is srsly fckin aweosome, its really worth chkin out , dont let ur fanboyisim stop u from playin it , im just gonna say this, story-wise its deep and i really wasnt expecting that, think metal gear but in space, so plz if u dont have a good pc get a 360 for it, its THAT good
It really was an amazing game I confined myself to a 5 day rental but I won't make that mistake with this one.
Mafia II has been delayed to 2010 i think. cant wait for ME2, which routes did everyone go on the first with characters?
I hope this is true because Mass Effect 2 is easily, by a country mile my most anticipated game. [email protected] Below - Saved Wrex - Saved the council - Saved Ashley (we are an item lol) - Played as Paragon
SPOILERS: -Killed the council -Saved Wrex -Let Ashley die -Played as paragon character Edit @ above: fairly similar, I killed the council to allow captain Anderson to get the position he deserved, plus the council really pissed me off throughout the game with their "ignore everthing your saying" kind of attitude
@ XxPh1l5t3RxX Spoilers: I was the same, except i saved Ashley because her and Wrex were my main powerhouse team. Never used Kaidan really. Was glad i put my paragon skill up so i could talk Wrex down though, my mate had to kill him. Is it bad that i didn't even batter an eyelid at the end when i killed the council? They just annoyed me all the way through so it was like "dont care..."
Best news I've heard all year. This seriously has me pumped and I hope it's true. One of the very few games I'm looking forward to so an early release would be a godsend.
OMG this is awesome news, I just hope the quality of the game doesn't suffer.
cannot wait to play the next. coming out sooner too is amazing, i wonder what Bioware will do with the Mass Effect 2
**MORE SPOILERS** the Council annoyed me after a while but I spared them for the sake of being a squeaky-clean good guy. plus I thought humanity would lose some credibility with the other races if I just casually sacrificed the Council. @Yipee: lol nice avatar
That is too soon for me. I don't have a good feeling about this. Please don't rush this game.
I'd perfer if they took a few extra months (if needed) to work on the game instead of rushing it out. If its really done and ready to ship in 09 that be great. oh and I saved everyone my 1st play throught then killed them my 2nd play through lol.
spoilers! everything really came together nicely with the first mass effect. *saved the rachni (most dramatic part of the game imho, just awesome) *saved the colony *saved wrex (he'd be pretty pissed if i didn't try, lol) *saved the council *saved ashley (but it's liara who i end up with) ilos was my favorite part of the game, it was just so different from the rest of the game's levels. and the outside battle before saren was pretty awesome (climbing down the side of the elevator...wow).
I agree with Megatron. I hope this isn't MS putting pressure onto the devs to get it done this year. I want a proper polished game. I'm hoping it will be done properly before its released since I loved the first game.
I'm sure the game will be ready by the end of the year. It was originally announced for January wasn't it? If it comes out in December, that's not too bad.. But, haven't you guys seen the trailers? They look really good. And, there is still about seven(7) months before the Holidays..
GOTY hell yeah Mass effect is going to fvcking epic.
hope it's true
Oh hell yes.. can't wait for this bad boy. I was hoping it came out early next year since this year will be packed, but I can make room. "New to ME? Don’t worry, we’ll give you a new character in Mass Effect 2 and bring you up to speed on the story." PS3 release confirmed (kidding =P)
Even if it "bring you up to speed" why would you wanna do it that way? There is still a lot that you would be missing out on.. It wouldn't be worth it, in my opinion..
Woah now THAT was unexpected, and to think E3 hasnt even started yet Seems like GOTY 2010 just got moved to 2009
No just no. Youre just being silly. This game looks good yes but nowhere near at all as good as GT5 or GOW3 im sorry but thats stupid to say
Your right it looks far superior to them. As good as those games will be i dont know the last time a racer has got GOTY as for GOW3 it doesnt look like its doing anything new enough to warrant GOTY. Whatever year ME2 releases it will be nominated and win GOTY awards you just got to accept that and move on
youre extremely deluded, what you have to accept is that GT5 and GOW3 look better than ME2 by far. As for innovation with GOW3 thats funny to say because ME2 doesnt innovate at all. SP only but a high quality rpg and yes it may win a few goty awards, but not overall. Thats silly to compare GT5 GOW3 and ME2. Yes its been a while since a racer won goty but its also been a while since the best racer series, gran turismo, released a game. Accept the truth
GT5 could be a strong contender. Not only graphically, but from what I've heard it sounds to be one of the deepest entries into the franchise yet. I'm not a GoW fan so I'd have to take a wait and see on that. Now shazui...your definition of 'innovative' is adding multiplayer? Please. Stop. Most RPGs that aren't MMOs don't do that. Fallout 3, Oblivion, Valkyria Chronicles...these RPGs must all suck because of no multi. None of them deserve the heaps of praise because you can't nutshot your friends. Feel free to skip them and save us your ignorant complaints. Seriously, abandon RPGs. All you talk about are graphics and multi and think that makes goty.
no one here noes enough about any of the so called "GOTY" contenders to declare them the winner yet @omega, what exactly is ME 2 doing thats so new exactly? and do you really no enough about GOW 3 to say its not doing anything new? i love mass effect but baseless accusations have to be called out
It has to go against the title that achieved goty against the original which seems to have grown substancially as well bioshock 2. I used the same argument last year in Bethesda (fallout 3) vs Epic (gears 2) and fallout got about as many game of the year awards as the overall game of the year mgs4 with gears pretty much not getting one. So this year i expect a similar outcome with bioshock 2 contending with another title (not mass effect) for the prizes, if it emulates 2007 its probably gonna be modern warfare 2. Although i expect it to be pretty much rpg of the year since jrpg dont get much love at goty nominations lately. Albeit interesting the main problem with mass effect universe in the original is that it was heavily influenced by the companies previous work on Kotor which gave it a slight star wars clone feel. Looking at the information available they seem to want to break comparisons by making it darker and grittier but unless they do something drastic it seems to emulate the feel timeline. With mass effect 1 being episode 1 and/or 2 and this one being episode 3/4. Anyway i expect it to be a great game but the use of unreal engine will take away the graphics factor, the use of bioware trademarked conversation system will score it less for innovation. However it will be redeemed by its revamped combat engine and great storyline so i expect AAA but no Goty)
ok I'm being a bit of a broken record here, but it really REALLY takes me out of a game sometimes when I get to some corny dialogue. which almost ALL games have in spades - except Mass Effect. 1st true console game for us 'grown-ups' with a brain IMO. however, innovation seems to score lots of points with the GOTY judges. since ME2 will prob be more of the same as far as actual game mechanics, I think you're right that GOTY is not a sure thing.
Gran Turismo 5 and God of War 3 are not even confirmed for 2009. Just the fiscal year.
You're comparing GT5 to Mass Effect? o.O You're silly..
I'm buying this on day one. Loved Mass Effect, I feel it deserves far more praise than it got.
??? It got plenty. Chill out.
well not here on n4g it didn't. the sonyfans like to refer to it as an 'elevator simulator'. but yeah people who aren't just being an arse mostly recognize ME as great.
It's a great game but those elevators are a pain. Luckily that'll change in the next one.
I never got into the first one, mainly because i rented it at a time where i had too many other games to complete so i just pretty much played it for the first hour.. then quit it and never went back. I'll have to try get back into it again before ME2 comes out.
I'm sorry.. But, why would you rent an RPG? o.O Most take a few hours before you actually get into it..
Xbox is more like RPGbox this generation. I've got soo many rpg's to play, it's a welcome change from all the fps's of last generation. Mass Effect 2 GOTY for me
Never much liked Mass Effect. Still, nice to see a games release date pushed forward instead of back.
I hope this gets confirmed on E3. And for the love of God, please dont rush it Bioware.
I very very much doubt itll be goty 09, the competitions too strong this year, but definitely a contender if this is true, looks good :)
I dont see any other game big enough on 360 or PS3 to stand up to ME2 this year. Maybe Alan Wake if its as good as its sounds or GT5 if its comes out this year either than that...dont see any other PS3 exclusive or 360 exclusive (well we dont know whats coming). And KZ2 just doesnt have much of an impact to get it.Except for core online PS3 gamers nobody seems to care for it anymore.
alan wakes not out this year is it? Nd we dont know anything about the 360 version yet so i dont know, but uncharted 2 looks better than this imho. UC2s online looks amazing, its got it all, coop on and offline story mode coop an awesome singleplayer unique multiplayer modes youtube uploading and match recording, plus the graphics are unparalelled so far on consoles :) so i dont think any1 should jump on the ME2 goty bandwagon just yet, does it have MP btw? And be honest dude, KZ2 had a huge impact, its got as much if not more chance of being goty 09. The MP was amazing, im still in my clan nd it keeps pulling me back to it. GFX outstanding, SP satisgying, yet not outstanding, MP outstanding so yeah it does
Mass Effect has one of the best stories,sublime characters and deepest universes that i have ever seen in a videogame and Mass Effect 2 looks to top the original in everway possible and also eliminate the only problem ME had which were framerate and some other technical issues. To say that a game is better than that just because it has multiplayer and (lol) youtube upload is just hilarious.I can't remember Bioshock having all those features when it was winning all those awards back in 07.And pls don't even go there with Killzone 2. As for GOTY, i am not going to make any predictions until E3 is over because we might just see a few contenders pop up.
I havn't played through the first one yet as i mentioned above, but after reading the reviews and hearing about it - i'd say it was a contender. If god of war 3 comes out this year, then for me - even if i play mass effect 2 then god of war 3 will more than likely be my goty. It is my second most anticipated game this generation (Behind MGS4). I'll have to pick up mass effect again, really want to get into it. Contenders for GoTY, at least by the media: Uncharted 2 Modern warfare 2 God of war 3 Mass effect 2 Bioshock 2
you do realize GOTY is determined by how good a game is and not how much it sold right? lol only a few vids of mass effect 2 have been shown and already ALL other games have no chance in your mind except the hardly seen alan wake (what a surprise) and GT5 your bias is to clear and strong for anyone to take you seriously
Neat, better get through the first one faster.
Can't wait to play this game.
Pls God let this be true.
Mass Effect 2 GOTY 2009!!!
Please no, too many games on 2009 already, specially if you like me with PS3 and Xbox 360 Make it something like march 2010 after the schedule clear a little bit. I know a lot of people will kill me for this.
Dude I agree. There are so many games I want. Halo 3: ODST Bioshock 2 Modern Warfare 2 Mass Effect 2 Prototype Assassin's Creed 2 I don't know how I'm going to afford them all. I guess I'll just have to put some of them on the backburner and pick them up later.
Xbox 360: Mass Effect 2 Halo 3: ODST Splinter Cell: ConViction Forza Motorsport 3 Alan Wake Prototype Assassin's Creed 2 BioShock 2 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Playstation 3 (I only buy exclusives): Uncharted 2 Heavy Rain God of War 3 (if it comes out this year) Gran Turismo 5 (if it comes out this year)
not sure if it will b goty 2009, but i'm sure it will get some kind of award, then again i really don't care who wins that much anyways all i care is that i will be playing this sucker!!! hehe
Hmm, my stack of games for '09 is building up... Currently in to inFamous, and just received an import version of Demons Souls, plus got Persona 4 to finish... Really need to go back and play Mass Effect 1 again before 2 releases. Ah well, who needs a social life anyway! :)
I think I just wet my pants. But Bioware DONT RUSH THIS PLZ!
As long as they are taking their time and making sure everything is tested properly then i won't mind it coming out this year.
Please let this be true...
on my PC!
For some reason I feel like Microsoft still wins that one.
That was the case for the first game but now with EA MS makes nothing on the PC version of this game. All it does is give people another reason to not buy an Xbox as this person is a perfect example.
ooohh yea! hope it is true!
how come fallout 3 wiped the floor with it and stomped its face in? didnt fallout 3 get goty and sell more on the x360? mass effect had tons of pop in, bad framerate, long as heck loading times. environments/planets and missions all looked the same. game is overated and its releasing earlier to have even more buggs then the first... Im sorry but talk tree gameplay is wack and kotor wipes the floor with mass effect series still.
Um you're wrong. Very wrong. and Kotor is made by Bioware as well, so obviously you're just being an idiot. Everyone knows Bioware = RPG = F'in awesome
MASS EFFECT 2 GOTY 2009 CONFIRMED. plus who said GOW 3 is coming out this year.....gamestop has a release date of 4/10/10 or something like that. and to the kid comparing MASS EFFECT 2 to GOW 3 GT 5.....we will see those games in 2010 bro.....
I remember when gamestop had a release date for FFv13. Guess what it was. 12/27/07. Your comment has no credibility. Just wait for E3, then we will know some more release dates.
Huh? What in the f**k does that have anything to do with Mass Effect 2? For one... why in the world are you taking Gamestop as a credible release date company.
Hmmm just checked the group and the release date has now been changed to Spring 2010. Makes you wonder, was the original just a mistake or are they going to wait until E3 next week to confirm a 2009 release? Either way, I cannot wait to get my hands on this game.
