TMC: GametrailersTV host Geoff keighley gave his impressions of Mass Effect 2 on Twitter after finishing the game.Keighley believes the game will receive universal acclaim with over 95 overall score on the website Metacritic.com
it's only the God of RPGs
Demon's soul has already took and locked that title. Keighley just likes to hype... no i'll rephrase that, keighley is payed to hype. Edit: funny I didn't even claim game was gonna be bad and the Disagrees are pouring like the rain in the amazons. @1.3 so it's like saying to a preson who's been driving in his whole life is not a driver because he prefer another brand of car than yours :/
sorry but...never heard of it
And that's why you shouldn't call yourself a gamer.
"Geoff Keighley- Mass Effect 2 is Genre-Defining Game, expects it to have over 95 in Metacritic" this is coming from a guy who's played the game and had his team review it. as far as both WRPGs/JRPG are concerned there are no other games like it in the genre. if there is, name a few.
LMAO @ Bungie, dat was funny lol. Anyways yeah MASS EFFECT is the best RPG this gen.Period. XBOX is the RPGBOX this gen. Looking forward to some Fable 3 and Mistwalkers new JRPG too.
That actually was pretty funny.
Ok I can agree that Mass Effect is an amazing RPG and Mass Effect 2 is simply AWESOME but to call the Xbox 360 or the PS3 the RPG King of this generation or whatever is absolutely ridiculous. Wake me up when there is an array of RPG's coming out that are not for the DS. Seriously this gen is lacking
WOW, already 120 degrees. Its crazy how emotional people get when Geoff says something
It's disappointing that the game's combat has lost any sense of being and rpg and is pretty much a third person shooter now. That half the game is hardly genre defining. However, the "role playing", so to speak, of being your own Sheppard is stellar.
Lol, he actually dared to mention Demon souls and mass effect 2 in one line. Sorry for you, Mass effect 2 completely outclasses Demon souls. Its like you are comparing Cross edge to Final fantasy 13. @below, I already played Mass effect 2, and when it comes to Demon souls, if it would be Mass effect quality, then the world would have let us know about it. And we all know by now that demon souls is a game easily forgotten.
Bungie is the same account as "OWNED" and and should get banned immediately. "Lol, he actually dared to mention Demon souls and mass effect 2 in one line. Sorry for you, Mass effect 2 completely outclasses Demon souls. Its like you are comparing Cross edge to Final fantasy 13. " Says the fanboy that has played none of them.
Actually I'm more in favour of a banning of you, how many 360 articles have you commented on in the last 12 months?, 100?, 200?, 300?, number of ps3 articles I've commented in in the same time = 2 You might want to tone down the fanboysim, you'll give yourself a stroke, and we're all concerned for your health...honestly.
I don't think it'll have over a 95, but it'll still be pretty high. I don't know about Genre defining though. I wouldn't say that.
Of course you wouldn't. Why do you sit on this site 24/7 waiting for 360 news you can post stealth bashing comments in? I looked at your history and you have been commenting in 360 rooms every hour as far back as the site records. Me2 is the Best action RPG ever it's not just Jeoff saying this but every reviewer so far. Only pro Sony review sites trying to lower the ME2 score will cause the game to go under 95.
The PC has plenty of staggeringly good games, but the 360 has been short of any *really* good games for a while. ME2 - you're at Bat - don't let the 360 down! r.
shipped me my collector's edition. On another note, everyone should go ahead and try to de-bubble Saaking, I'm tired of reading his stealth troll comments. Go to any FFXIII article and I guarantee you'll come across a comment of his with the word 'gimped' in it.
Keighley also said Mass Effect 2 will come to the PS3 too. Good to know EA isn't going to limit the "god" of RPGs. EDIT: And ME2 being "genre-defining" is inside info? If he thinks it is cool. If he thinks it's coming to PS3, I say cool too. It isn't really implausible with EA's stock performance.
Thats not inside info. Keighley thinks ME2 will make its way to PS3 just like I think FF Versus will make its way to 360. Doesn't mean much. Is this the twilight zone? The 360 fans have more disagrees than agrees.
Comparing them is like weighing apples vs. emus. Creation: One is Western, the other Eastern. Setting: Sci-Fi epic vs. Cthulu style fantasy. Control: 3rd person shooter vs. classic - methodical - hackn'slash. Characters: Aliens, Robots/ Demon's, dragons, mythical creatures. I fail to see any similarities other than the fact that they each fit under the rather broad description of an "RPG". They are COMPLETELY different games. And each one is brilliant in it's own way, as wekk as totally distinctive. Props to Mass Effect 2 (I will be playing this once I'm done with Magna Carta 2 - which is actually not as bad as reviews would indicate), and a shout out to Demon's Souls, which was one of my favorite games this gen. A 360 and a PS3 are basically the same price (I'm not going into the "value" argument, yes one is more featured, but to just play games, they're about the same price), so shut up and bite the bullet and find out what the other side (or multi-console) owners get up to. You would probably find that a lot of your misplaced rage might suddenly dissipate. You could come out from the basement - blinking in the sun like a lizard while your eyes adjust to the searing light of which they are unaccustomed. You might even meet a girl and fall in love! Who knows? Being an angry nerd isn't productive or sexy for anyone. If all you fan-boys want to be mad at someone, pick the corporations who make us buy several consoles just to enjoy a full spectrum of titles this gen. This is easily the most expensive generation in decades of gaming for me. More than all this pixel-counting and console loyalty bs, THAT makes me angry. Less QQ, more pew-pew. So much of these "gamer zone" posts really belong on the other side. Mass Effect 2 is fantastic and so is Demon's Souls. Accept it, move on.
the game is great im loving it
Good on them if that all comes true. I see the good scores as indicative of BioWare delivering on their many promises for ME2. But right now, I am more concerned with finally playing the game than some guy's soothsaying.
Gosh I f*&^in hate metacritic.
@bungie "Lol, he actually dared to mention Demon souls and mass effect 2 in one line. Sorry for you, Mass effect 2 completely outclasses Demon souls. Its like you are comparing Cross edge to Final fantasy 13." =/ Imo, Demons Souls is that to JRPGs what ME2 is to WRPGs. But equally epic in different ways. I'mma huge fan of Me1 and DS. But I dont think I could be content of had just played ME1 or DS. I'm glad I played both, bcoz neither of them can offer what the other does. Anyways, getting ME2 day one. It could get a 80 metacritic for all i care. It's not gonna cancel my preorder :)
I know it will be one of my favorite games. Mass Effect 1 already felt like the pinnacle of action RPG gaming for me and I have no doubt Bioware have elevated this one to the next level. I simply can't wait.
Don't get me wrong, I'm as excited about the game as most of you. I'll be playing the 360 versions just 2 days and I can't wait, but I'm just saying that the game may not score as high as people are speculating. UC2 has OVER 100 reviews and has still managed to keep a 9.6 average. I don't think ME2 will be able to pull that off.
that this game will be a great addition to the 360 AND PC library, as he usually does. HAHA! He's trying to get approval from everyone, don't fall for it!
I was talking about duplicate accounts, not about comments from 360 fanboys in PS3 threads and viceversa. But now that you mention it, your opinion on heavy rain is ignorant, and that's assuming you aren't a fanboy.
@Chris399, how you got even one single disagree, I will never understand. Demon's Souls was my game of the year last year, and Mass Effect 2 is right on track to be my game of the year this year. I cannot freakin' wait for Tuesday! Both games are totally different and totally brilliant (well, I'm kind of making an assumption about ME2 because I have not played it yet, but you get the idea).
I can hardly be a fanboy when I don't go around talking about what console I play on, I don't need to justify my purchase, and neither should you, there is no need for competition, just let it go, any game that gets over 9/10 is a blessing as we are flooded with so many mediocre games, I suggest you buy it for pc as you don't seem to have a 360
Dude do you ever rest? You are the ultimate fanboy LOL
I never said the game was bad, I was just pointing the fact that Bungie writes the exact same things as the former duplicate account "OWNED" and all of his open zone accounts, just like WhyDis/WeWon/Ididnotmurderhim and then I pointed out how FoxGod has never played either Mass Effect 2 or Demon's soul because the first is not out (I don't believe anything he says anyway) and the second is on PS3; just check this bullsh1t of his justification: "if it would be Mass effect quality, then the world would have let us know about it. And we all know by now that demon souls is a game easily forgotten." And this is his gamer zone comments, just imagine his open zone comments lol. Seriously, ignoring the fact that he is a fanboy, he is a very ignorant gamer considering Demon's soul actually won a few GOTY awards, so yeah, the world did "let us know" and yet he chose to ignore it. Furthermore, somebody that needs to "hear about a game" or the mentality of "let's buy it because it sells and therefore it is good" is that of sheep which need to be herded, i.e. not very bright. Ignoring all that, you changed the subject calling me a fanboy in spite of your Heavy Rain comments; I never called you a fanboy either, I simply said that in my arguments I was assuming you are not a fanboy, that you are simply ignorant. Hell, I didn't even say Mass Effect 2 sucks, I've even acknowledged that the first one is a good game as I own it, but I don't think its gameplay is groundbreaking, not like I need every game to have groundbreaking gameplay as long as it has other reasons for me to play it like a few innovative mechanics or storytelling devices. The worst part is that the same fanboys that say that Heavy Rain sucks because "it's just a movie" or "it's too slow" are the same fanboys praising Mass Effect 2 for its storyline and for the fact that you can also manipulate the story, even though Mass Effect 2 is also a slow game compared to Gears or Halo (not like it matters to me as I don't care how anyone else labels them, I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy).
most people hating on heavy rain don't like it because it doesn't have any realtime combat. they could have resident evil (1996) like combat and GTA4 hand to hand and the game would get its dues. but all combat is qte.
Then its well deserved. Lord knows the 360 needs some better games. 2009 sucked for them (in my opinion of course). At least Bioware does step up its game and knows how to make a quality game. I wonder if the PS3 version will have extra missions. u know, ala every "RPGBOX" game that comes over to PS3. Oh wait, Bioshock came over with more content didnt it? Bashing Demon's Souls??? Really? 1.Read Chris399 and skv007 comments. Couldnt have said it better myself. 2. Demon's Souls is my favorite RPG this gen. not because its a PS3 game, but because of the unique (and utterly frustrating) experience its bought me. Im playing this game and I'm literally learning new things about the game everyday. Noone is holding your hand in that game and telling you how to shoot. That is the rewarding thing about it. Keep your minds closed and you are going to miss on some real good stuff on both sides.
Mass Effect is my favorite RPG this generation. There were some other good ones I like as well, but none as much as Mass Effect. Btw the graphics are amazing. Mass Effect 2 is the best looking RPG on any console.
Keighley is a tool. I'm not saying he is wrong, just that the man is a damn tool. His quotes don't constitute news.
Look out they're coming...DROIDS Avalanche...
Not this time, I guess. Anyway, ME2 is in many ways a defining game of its genre. Certainly among the RPG elite.
Just a couple more days to go! Sounds like it's going to be a special game, much like the first for me.
Awesome game so far.
even though someone spoiled the ending for me, I'm still going to put over 200 hours just like ME1.
ah sorry to hear :( You should go hang the guy who did that lol
"It's not the end but the journey".
well said... well said indeed. Someone Pm'd me the ending of ME1 b4.. (stupid N4G)... But never the less, the ending still was awesome when you play it yourself.
nice, can't wait to pick up my copy on Tuesday
Lucky you, EU has to wait till the 29th :(
mwahhahaha midnight launch ftw >.> Oh wait.. i have college *slits wrists* it'll make the wait less painful D:
hmm yes tomorrow night..... im gonna be at gamestop @ 9:30 to make sure i claim a spot near the front of the line, then ill jack off for a couple of hours then come back take my spot @ the front of the line and claim my gold. cant wait!
i own a ps3 but that doesn't matter - a great game is a great game. and those tv commercials are awesome!
exactly, it's all about being a gamer, not choosing sides and bashing the other
agreed I only have a ps3 and very happy with it , but would love to play this game. Might have to get it for my laptop , it's got a 512 video card and 4 g ram du core 2.4 , maybe it will run on low settings.
I certainly love Mass Effect but I wouldn't call it "Genre Defining".
Why not, its a completely new form of action rpg. Theres a good chance more games will try and follow the gameplay that Mass effect 2 offers. Its an rpg that offers controls that equal that of a shooter. No other game has done that, look at Fallout for example, Fallout 3 is a great game, but its controls are by no means revolutionary for an rpg. Mass effect 2 is. If fallout Vega's will follow Mass effect 2 in its footsteps, then it would be a major step up for the Fallout series.
The first one may have been genre defining. This one has just fixed all the little things that people b1tched about the first one. So I guess ME2 is restating the definition.
I think ME1 was really genre defining.. the things they introduced was amazing. But.. unless Me2 is bringing more to the table then just improvements over the first one, it won't have the same effect on the WRPG genre as the first one did.
Yeah, that's exactly what we need, more shooter saturation of the RPG genre. /s Mass Effect is a shooter masquerading as an RPG, it shouldn't be called an RPG at all. And no, we don't need more games like Mass Effect, we do need more games like Demon's Souls. Old-school difficulty with great gameplay that ISN'T just a rehashed shooter.
I own both consoles but there are waaaay too many fanbois on both sides with some rediculous comments. If demon souls was considered what GT states, it would have been over 90 on meta. I played demon souls and it was great... but not what you make it out to be and seems like others critics agree. What Geoff said is his opinion wether it comes true or not!!!. Its all perception, regardless on how you feel, otheres will feel different.
I doubt many critics took the time to actually play through the game. Most of them play the games on easy and Demon's Souls is at least a 50 hour game not including any multiplayer.
I'm importing my C.E from Gamestop, I hope they ship in advance so it gets here on release day... I got excited an hour ago, a delivery came, and the look of glee on my face would have been embarrassing, it was the same size as a game, I felt it...and it was a god damn uni text book for my girlfriend, I threw it across the room, perhaps not the most sensible thing to do, but I was so sure it was my copy of ME2 here to save me from another boring day playing old games...
lol I dont blame you. I did that when I was waiting for my copy of MGS4.. So it's understandable D:
Coming from the guy that said halo:reach trailer would blow people away uhmm ye. I have no doubt im gonna love me2 since me1 was alrdy brilliant and the improvements with classes looks very good but i dont trust anything that comes from keighley mouth. Wow 3 disagrees alrdy the xbox fanboys are hunting.
I just ordered my new graphics card for this game. I'm really looking forward to playing it once I've finished my project. I guess it is pretty much genre defining since it's about the only TPS/RPG I can think of.
Geoff does tend to over-hype things [VGA's anyone?!] But in saying that, Mass Effect 2 is still a wicked game.
I've bought plenty of games recently and I want to give them playing time sorry ME2, I'll get you some other time :(
Xbox 360 game Mass effect 2 answer all PS3 games lol Waiting for next Boom SCC and Alan wake
Considering that toast always falls butter side down, and a cat always lands on it's feet, what happens when you strap toast butter side up on the back of a cat? @GiantEnemyCrab I figured it was that, or blue/red shift, and when we recovered the cat and toast will have disappeared so that the secret of the universes physics laws were not revealed to us
I believe the cat will fall on its side. Then the time/space continuum will rip open and we will all be swallowed up in a black hole.
Simple really. Anti-Gravity field. http://scottthong.files.wor...
haha, and there it is: myth busted.
