CC: BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka has said that the experience you will get from Mass Effect 2 is 'over the top amazing'.
but this is one rare case where i believe him MAG and ME2 day 1 purchases in late January
ME2 = Day One Purchase MAG = No Way, maybe 2 weeks after or as a birthday present in February.
I played the MAG beta and it's cool (I just couldn't get into it) but I'd take ME2 over MAG. Anyways one is an FPS and one is an RPG. No comparisons needed.
i've played the first 5 hours of the game holy **** there's alot of surprises
Us too! Man it's good!
Again, more people comparing two games just cause they're releasing around the same time. When will they learn? SMH.
If he is trying to hype this game to oblivion and back, its working for me.
the constant need to shill your product as opposed to letting it stand on it's own merits is completely annoying. When did Bioware become self-aggrandizing as$hats like Turn 10? I really hate the new, commercial, aggressive nature of this industry. These people aren't sports-stars ffs, they're game developers (or corporate suits, in this case - but the developers have made similar boisterous claims). Just make the product and shut up please. I don't need their opinion on what is "epic" or "mind-blowing" or "over the top". This is not Hollywood, their opinions don't matter, it's a commercial relationship between my $ and a publisher. Sure, there's aspects of artistry and whatnot also involved, but it's mostly the transaction of my (and your) cash for some entertainment.
I dont think what you said can apply for Bioware. Bioware are simply talking about their own products and never mention other studios or games unlike Turn 10. Moreover its not in over the top way like Turn 10 once again.
Either this is all some very selective reporting over the past few days, or, Bioware is developing a bit of an ego. Bioware on JRPGs being stagnant: http://www.n4g.com/gaming/N... Bioware on the competition: http://www.n4g.com/News-445... Bioware on ME: 2: http://www.n4g.com/News-439... Seriously, just search Bioware on N4G and read some of the stories that they're headlining in. Great studio, don't get me wrong, but they haven't really done anything to their formula since the NWN days other than add more layers to dialog trees. Oh, and they threw some awkward, weird-handed (sorry, but the hands in DAO are just "off") sex in there too :P Again, ME was brilliant (while being still very Bioware cannon). I'm sure the sequel will be the same. But there is an ego at work here, and I find that irritating. That's all I'm saying. @ below. Yeah, they're all guilty of it. Seems to be the trend to hype your game to Hell and back.
BioWare CEO: ME2 is the best game evaaaa Square Enix CEO: FF13 is teh pwnz0rs game evaaaa Activision CEO: Tony Hawk ride is the bestttt game evaaaa!!111!! Valve CEO: Donuts are the best thing evaaaa!!!
Im gunna stowe away 120 bucks just in case this and Conviction make the jump to PS3.
Only game i'm getting in Jan is Ao2 >.< rest will have to wait till Summer lol
Chris Bioware is about to release their game next month, they are doing interviews, I don't see anything they have said as cause for concern, they haven't bad mouth any developer or game in particular. Yes they are hyping their game and ME2 deserves every bit of it imo. BTW, they were answering questions asked in interviews, whats wrong with that? _______________ Bioware on JRPGs being stagnant: http://www.n4g.com/gaming/N... "While up at BioWare's headquarters in Edmonton, I had the opportunity to throw some questions at company co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk. I was curious about how the duo felt about the current RPG landscape in general, and why we're seeing more and more western-style RPGs while JRPGs have, at least among North American audiences, fallen somewhat to the wayside." -Destructoid "The fall of the JRPG in large part is due to a lack of evolution, a lack of progression," Zeschuk said." Chris, I'm not sure how else he's suppose to answer how he feels about JRPG's, you may disagree but many like me feel that everything he said was legit, JRPG's haven't changed much over the years. ________________ Bioware on the competition: http://www.n4g.com/News-445... "Cho was asked about the amount of releases in the coming months"-CVG "There's a whole bunch of titles but I'm not worried about it because it's a great game. It didn't really matter when we were going to put it out, I think it's going to blow people out of the water." "We're so proud of the game that I'm not worried at all. I feel like this is actually the best game that has come out of our studio in the history of BioWare." -Cho(from Bioware) So he's not worried because he's proud of his game, Sounds like a great answer to me. ___________________ Bioware on ME: 2: http://www.n4g.com/News-439... Muzyka: "Mass Effect 2 to be 'best thing yet from Bioware" yeah, every dev says their latest game is the best game they have made, if they dont think so I would be worried, why make a game you dont think is better than your last one. Maybe you should skip the next ME2 hype article Chris.
For sure. I see nothing wrong with anything Bioware has said. I personally can't wait for Mass Effect 2.
just saying im getting them cuz they come out at the same time... fanboys look into this too much
It seems to that any anticipated game that is to be released for the 360 gets alot of "Horn Tootin" from the parties involved...aint nothing wrong with that I'm just sayin!
Yeah you're right! There is (for example) absolutely no one talking nice about God Of War III, Heavy Rain & MAG.
Bioware have balls of steel with the confident comments i've seen from them recently!
They're confident because they've had good feedback from it so far. I played it two or three months ago now and it was brilliant :)
after the first ME, I expect nothing less. and ofc bioware aren't gonna say anything bad about their game
OTT isn't always good...=S
stop saying it. This is the 3rd story on N4G where someone from the company says this. Its not news, though I have no doubt it will be a good game, OBVIOUSLY someone from the company will say its good Common sense
The fighting/shooting felt cheap and the game studdered here and there. Elevators are horrible. I hope they corrected some of those things.
lol you don't follow mass effect news do you? Everyone knows the first game had elevator problems, texture pop-in, bad frame rate etc. But the game was so damn good story wise we all overlooked it. They've already stated it's a constant FPS, texture pop-in is very minimal if at all, the elevators are now fixed. They've added guns, balanced weapons, said they made shooting more fun. Upped the powers so you can use them more often etc...it's going to be a killer game.
I enjoyed the first one, Bioware has my respect cause of ME and Dragon Age ^^ Best PC games ive played in a long time.
Best 360 games i've played in a long time as well.
Multiplats.....the best 360 games ever.
"BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka has said that the experience you will get from Mass Effect 2 is 'over the top amazing'" My opinion is that he is going to hype this game.
more variety i hope in the planets and stuff not that every area looks the same.
The gameplay will hopefully be better than the first game.
I don't know what it is about you, but I want to slap you in the mouth..... with a commit. The first one was amazing, and all indicators say this one with be better.
even if i were making disney game .
A guy from Bioware says that ME 2 is good ? I'm surprised, really.
And the trash talk begins. Is this the new fad or something?
"says BioWare CEO" gee, i wonder why hed say something like that *rolls eyes* Mass Effect 1 was severely overhyped. i played the superior version on PC and was still pretty bored
It's not surprising that you only have two bubbles
Menoyou, I wouldn't expect a frothing-at-the-mouth PS3 fanboy like yourself to say anything different. Mass Effect was amazing and is by far one of my favorite games of all time.
Way to hype it up.
I'll have then write you an apology for hyping their own game, here it is: "we here at bioware apologise for attempting to market a product we spent around 20 million on creating, we regret trying to take measures that would ensure we make that money back so that we can continue to produce more games, after the negative feedback, specifically from N4G users, we have decided to drop support for this game, and will no longer release it, we have filed for bankruptcy as well"
just look at all the trailers they've released (and all the massive names they have in their voiceovers). they did a great job of promo-ing it through dragon age (and conversely promo-ing dragon age through it). they're dropping demos and getting rave reviews. they're bioware! However, if they even come one point short of the standard they just set, lot's of people are gonna hear about it. for example: I came into video games pretty late in life, on of the first I played was fable (like 2 years after it came out) and within a week of playing it, whenever I'd mention that I was doing so to anyone relatively into gaming, all I'd hear was that damn acorn story, and that it was overhyped. I still look back on that game fondly, but hearing that immediately made me weary when fable 2 rolled around and Peter started talking it up. When a company overhypes just one game and that game falls short, they are doomed to have that bad reputation for the remainder of their days. That's why I'd say, rather than take the risk, they should just stick with their current phenomenal advertising campaign. I'm not gonna sit here and say, "it's ok, he's totally right, this game is gonna be the best evar!" because I haven't played it yet, and I'm not gonna walk into it with blind faith. I will say, based on the fact that I'm playing through the first for the third time, and that I've had such a good time with Bioware games, that I feel like it has the potential to be balls-out amazing, and I really hope it is for the sake of my enjoyment/bioware's credentials. Nonetheless, news like this does get around outside of N4G, so saying every single article that appears here is limited to our little bubble isn't exactly true and doesn't require such blatant sarcasm. (unless it follows the lines of ps3 vs 360 or why MW2 is the glitchy game of the year)
...and I know that I'm going to enjoy the hell out of Mass Effect 2 (just as I did the first), BUT they need to shut up. I was totally fine with them talking about improvements, but just saying "we're the greatest ever" isn't exactly what I associate with great developers (see silicon knights...even lionhead though I think their games are good but waaaay overhyped) Personally, I'm extremely critical of Bioware games because I hold them to such a high standard. I've been following their company since KOTOR and I fully know what they're capable of producing (consistently awesome games) I was very tough on dragon age when I first started playing it (my friends gave me hell for how much I b1tched and moaned about it's tiniest flaws: like the oversized hands, shoddy selection of mage armor, immediate continuity of action following a selection of a skill from the menu, and lack of pc voice acting) but I still love it. And while I can sit here and say, I think Mass Effect 2 will be GOTY contender... it isn't because the developer sits around and says "ME2 is over the top amazing". It's because I've seen the gameplay, the improvements, the voice actors, and I know it's building on IGN's 2007 GOTY. That said, if this game turns out not to be up to the standards just set by Bioware (even if it's damn close) they will NEVER hear the end of it, and in my opinion it will hinder sales for their third installment. They should just let the game speak for itself, because I certainly think it will be able to. p.s. seriously...n4g needs to lighten it's policy on swearing (you can hear the word b1tch on national television but you can't write it here? wtf!
"The first game was a hyped POS. I don't expect to much more from the second one." I still don't know what is so great about this game. The GFX were good on the first one, and that was it.
the story was great and the fact that you could pretty much define the way shepard acts. Another good thing about it were the abilities. so, there were 4 great things about it. the game was far from being a "POS".
I am going to get lost in this game.
The best RPG of next year hands down , and one of the best franchises to emerge this generation
The best Wrpg for some people.....his hype however doesn't work for me, Final fantasy 13 FTW however i'll pick this game at a later time :) since it will be a good game.
DAY F///ing ONE
you guys just watch blurays.
Of course, other games are around too, like FF13 which will be over the top amazing also, especially on 360 with the stunning in game visuals
the team that made Forza 3 , and wee all now what happened when the game was released.
