Here's some video of the opening of Mass Effect.Enjoy!
This is CWAZY !!!
Edit : Why did I get a disagree ? When I said this game is cwazy I mean this game looks awesome in the visual side. You cant deny good looking game, so why disagree ?
yet another game using the unreal engine that has unbearable pop up textures, well count me out im not buying anymore pop up games! bioshock has put me off for good!
notice the chair on the guy who is saying check alot? its awefull and not next gen to see texture pop in, it fully takes me out of the experience
I am just hoping that that was sarcasm.
If not, that is the stupidest comment i have ever seen.
I was just gonna submit this!
This game has just tonight become a must buy for me.
Nice to know I'm not the only one. For a moment there I thought I have been living under a rock.
EDIT: To the guy/guys that disagreed with mine and ToughName's comments explain yourself please.
People will disagree with any comment for no reason at all, even if it doesn't make sense to disagree with it. One time I told someone Bioshock had already been released and someone pressed disagree (this was just after I had finished playing Bioshock for the day).
DrPepper I know all too well about it my friend it really annoys me each time. I cannot stand when people disagree and dont have the stones to tell you why. Or if its done in a situation where it just doesnt make sense to dissagree.
A good example on my part would be I once said I havent played Dead Rising on the Xbox and someone disagreed.
EDIT: Okay I found a better example just today I made a comment saying that the European version of Ninja Gaiden Sigma got censored and someone disagreed.
EDIT: OMFG I got another disagree, someone is doing this to take the
p!$$, But jokes on you because this time I found it hilarious.
Dissagreeing is a way for people to vent on other gamers.
I never seen such loyalty and malice although this game would make anybody envyous most would buy the system to play it instead of attacking the people willing to do what its takes to give it a go.
This Trilogy could end up being legendary up there with Zelda, Halo & FF.
There were scum out there that disagreed with the Colin Mcrae condolences on this web site. That says a lot about those individuals
Example: I was making an apology to Maddens Raiders for being a d!ck to him two days before (I just got out of surgery so I was a d!ck to everyone) and I got like 6 disagrees, for f**king saying sorry. LOL all I said in the entire comment was "Sorry Maddens for being a d!ck to you the other day"
Be afraid. Be very very afraid.
Microsoft kids got ther own good games and Sony kids got ther own good games. You make it sound like this game will destroy a system that alot of people want. Stop acting as if your console the best direction, your nobody important why should someone take you seriously, only a Fangirl would want to make a statement like that ! LOLOLOLOLOL
this game does look sick!there's so much inovation involved in this game it's amazing.I will buy this game even though i'm no fan of rpg's
Unbelievable!!!!! Seeing that 42 min video (watched a good chunk) showed that this really is good. Watching this 720P video proves that all the screens released so far are Totally 100% in-game. I am obviously a Playstation fan, but I'm so glad I own a 360 too!!
Overall graphically, I think this hands down is finally the 360 game to destroy GeOW graphically, I think it beats Bioshock as well. Add to that it is an RPG and it makes it all the more astounding. I currently am thoroughly enjoying Heavenly Sword (for gameplay and graphics), but I must give props. I think the fact that these are near on par quality-wise but are interactive, will take things to things to a whole new level of immersion! (I love the music they are using in ME as well, great choice).
Before people flame, I know ME is Sci-if RPG and HS is a fantasy hack and slash. It is just that these two games are right now appear to be doing the most convicing facial-motion capture ever in a game, so they do make a sort of natural comparison.
WOW WOW WOW!!
Sony and PS3 will be in a big trouble in November.
The PS3 has plenty of good games to keep it going from November and onwards.
the Mass Effect looks nice, but what you said is just LOL.
AC6(for ps3 only spring)
Eternal Sonata(for ps3 only spring)
UT3(for x360 only spring)
you forgot to include
BioShock, Naruto, Beautiful Katamari.
You should take out Lair an HS.... those games arent going anywhere.
and take off Socom.
Man... you really need to do some homework.
we cavemen believe graphically this is probably the best looking game ever...
No way can the 360 do these visuals with dvd 9,
and without Blu Ray! (SARCASM)EDIT:oops,and don't forget the cell!
So says the Ps3jects.
The good doctors at Bioware are masters of their craft and Mass Effect
is a console owners wet dream!
It's good to be a MS 360 owner...........hot damn.
EDIT:Now look at the all the trolling PS3 tards disagreeing!
Fvcking how pathetic and jealous you guys can be.
Blu-ray simply allows for more content, and a larger variety of content. It's up to developers to use that space constructively. We'll have to wait and see what the environments and gaameplay for Mass Effect are like throughout the title before making final judgments. Bioware was pretty vocal about having problems fitting Mass Effect onto one DVD.
Google is a wonderful resource, learn to use it. In fact, here's the URL if you can't even understand that much http://www.google.com
Have fun. It's entirely too simple, and I HAVE TO wonder how people can but turn a blind eye to one of the easiest resources before them by using the little cop out phrase "Link please!"
Bioware, Mass Effect, disc space in the search bar, and voila....lookie what I've found, and on the first page, no less.
http://www.destructoid.com/... http://blogs.ign.com/BioWar... Does “Mass Effect” fit on one disc?
Yep, but just barely.
Asking for links is a pathetic little excuse to continue one's denial. PATHETIC in this day and age of search engines. If you've tried and failed then that's understandable, but none of you obviously did, as I found these on just the first page. Don't expect this from me again, just demonstrating how effortlessly easy finding a bit of information can be, because the whole "there's no link, so I MUST BE RIGHT by default" business is idiotic.
DJ said "Bioware was pretty vocal about having problems fitting Mass Effect onto one DVD."
Genki's sources pretty much said that BioWare had *thought* that they would have problem fitting the contents onto one disc... but it turned out that they could fit everything onto one disc without problem.
You saw the first half because that's all you wanted to see, and that's the half that you could use to spin. And you deliberately ignore and misinterpret the second half that proves you wrong.
P.S. The burden of proof is on DJ, because he's the one who made the claim that "Bioware was pretty vocal about having problems fitting Mass Effect onto one DVD." (which is still false, by the way.) If he made that claim for BioWare, then he better showed the proof. That's how it works: the burden of proof is on him, not on anyone else. Other people should not have to look for proof on someone else's behalf when he makes a ridiculous claim.
sit down Genkie.........and put this dunce cap on on son.
You've been p___d!
"Right now it looks like we're going to get it on one and it's been difficult because there's a lot of content."
Says enough to my ears and eyes. Deliberately ignored what...? Sounds pretty cut and dry to me.
As far as burden of proof, you're absolutely right, but on the topic of gaming, and quotes while we're on the subject, should people really need to hunt for old links and sources every time they make a post? Is that to say that I can't make a declaration without carrying a laundry list of sources with it? I would hope not.
Really though, I agree with you wholeheartedly, but the extremist group within this community(both sides, btw) use that sort of thing as a crutch to more or less say "Since he can't prove it, I can say I'm right!" to either hold onto denial or just use that little crutch to favor their stance. It's contrived. If we had a more civilized community here, it wouldn't be so much a problem, but take a good look at the vast majority of the characters that say these things...they're probably not level-headed gamers in most cases.
Like I said, in this day and age, it's not the hard to do a simple search of a handful of words, especially if you have a search toolbar in your browser. The way I look at it is like this. If what I say bothers you so much, tell me why I'm wrong or move on, otherwise, I don't think I should have to spoon feed someone information that they can find with a couple clicks of the mouse.
In any case, if you read between the lines, they're more or less saying that they did have problems fitting everything onto one disc. Sorry, but I wouldn't exactly call "just barely", or "it's been difficult" a breeze to be honest. I couldn't care less, because I'm not one of those BD or die fanatics either. Preference for my PS3 aside, I won't question the creativity and prowess of developers these days. The Gamecube era is proof enough that talented devs will work beautifully and effectively with what they have. Look at Resident Evil 4. Shipped on 2 discs, was visually superior to the version on my console of choice(PS2), and it was released much earlier than it as well.
This whole disc space argument is for the birds. Devs will work with that they've got and do it admirably, that's all.
the game is huge at 20 to 30 hrs core gameplay and up to 70 to hrs or more if you explore all the worlds and yet it ALL FITS ON 1 DVD9
ha ha DJ's just upset because if games like this can deliver top notch graphics, great gameplay, and many hrs of gaming on 1 DVD9 like ME has shown in the gameplay vids and trailers so far, it makes bluray seem like its only neccessary if the dev's dont use good compression and "optimize" (which according to Bioware its an art) hmmm I guess there's more to the "art" of using the space that you have for adding to interesting gameplay, game length and graphic's instead of a short game with 10gb of sound. ha ha how ironic sonykids boast of space yet 360 games are doing more with less.
I'll take my hat off to having more space, I'm sure dev's prefer more than less, but talented dev's seem to be doing just fine with DVD9 and I'm sure micro's devs tools help alot, also considering most games arent nearly as big as ME in gameplay length, the vast majority will likely fit just fine on DVD9, and in the future I'm sure most gamers will gladly take ME2 or other awesome games on multiple discs if neccessary.=
All these 360 guys are ignoring Genki’s proof that I was telling the truth. Bioware stated “Right now it looks like we're going to get it on one [disc] and it's been difficult because there's a lot of content.” Why you guys are ignoring the proof and deeming us haters and liars is a bit hard to understand.
Joker stated “the only thing really bothering DJ, is this game is NOT on the ps3”.
Nothing’s actually bothering me about Mass Effect. The game looks fairly impressive so far, and though I have a few gripes with how the humans look/animate the alien races look amazing. Unfortunately, I haven’t really kept up with progress on the title, but I’d love to see how the final game turns out. Hopefully my friend Alex gets this when it comes out.
As for the Blu-ray hating going on, stop doing it. You guys look like idiots when you complain about giving developers more room to work with. It's akin to complaining about giving developers too much processing power, imo.
Halo 3 versus Mass Effect.
If you can play only one game from between the two, and you have to choose, which one would you pick?
Personally I'd pick Mass Effect.
My Reason I study Animation and it's my passion so the character designs in Mass Effect are just incredible to me. I also love how dramatic this game seems to be.
Mass Effect, for many reasons.
Halo 3 all the way. I'm not a huge RPG fan, so H3 is the obvious choice for me. Although I may have to make an exception for ME and buy it. It looks amazing.
But if I had to choose...Halo 3
ME looks better, appears to be very innovative, and I'll surely be checking it out later this year. The above video was insane (graphically).
However, I'm not a huge fan of RPG's and have only played one thus far (Fable). That combined with the this supposedly being the last true installment of the Halo franchise n' I've got no other choice but to choose Halo 3 (if forced to make a decision between the 2). ME will certainly have a longer story mode, but ultimately Halo 3 will provide more replayability.
I can't answer that..........somebody else?
O.K. Round Peg here it goes.......................... .............................. . .............................. . ............Mass.......definat e ly Mass.
Why?Well i've played Halo and know mostly what it's all about.
Mass is something extremely new and groundbreaking.That's where I guess I'll stand for now........tough question man.
Reading these comments make me sick, why do you guys keep calling out other guys? Its about the game, why bring in some stupid discussion we have had a million times. The game look sick and can't wait for it!
Not bad. Looking forward to this game and COD4.
I'll be playing a movie called Mass Effect come November. Can't wait!!! Is this coming to PC next year?
Jade Empire took over 2 years to get ported to PC.
Halo 2 took about 3 years.
Mass Effect looks absolutely gorgeous, and I'll certainly be picking it up, but the 2 guys at the console look like talking waxworks. The visuals, once again, have surpassed the facial animations.
Full body animations are as good as they're going to get thanks to mo-cap, but I just wish they'd work on a system of realistically and convincingly animating facial movements.
has better real-time, in-game facial animation?
Real-time and in-game. Not pre-rendered cinematic cutscenes.
The Humans are stuck in the uncanny valley for some reason (I'm a CG artist, so trust me, it's HARD to get humans right), but the Alies are absolutely amazing. I especially loved the subtle lip movement for the frog-looking team-mate.
Theres nothing on a console that looks like that period! people saying its not good enough are living in LA-LA LAND. The two guys were sitting in front of an Big Orange Screen The lighting and the way it reflects on Flesh is stellar far more advanced than Anything I'v seen.
I use to think that to, I was saying to myself why was the game charactors looking great in pics sometimes but like painting in other pics; the more video I see the more I realize the surrounding lighting was producing differnt looking pics. I now know this is unmatched the flesh tones are stellar. An light skinned Charactor is going to pic up on vibrant lighting.
With Mass Effect, there are now 6 solid GOTY contenders, 4 of which are Microsoft exclusives (Forza 2, Bioshock, Halo 3 and Mass Effect), 1 exclusive to Wii (Metroid Prime 3) and 1 multiplatform (Call of Duty 4). A few other multiplatforms may qualify, and I'm thinking hard if there's any exclusive from the Sony camp that might possibly remotely be GOTY contender, but I don't think there is. It is great to be an "Xbot" ain't it?
But it's the BEST at the moment. There's no other game that can do better at the moment. In real-time anyway.
HS easily rivals this for facial animation and overall effects
Of course non-interactive cutscenes would look better.
All those facial animations in Mass Effect is REAL TIME, INTERACTIVE, REACTIVE, and DYNAMIC. Those facial animations are parts of the interactive gameplay.
You guys keep comparing facial animations from non-interactive cutscenes from some PS3 game to those from the interactive gameplay from Mass Effect.
It was in realtime IDIOT
Most of you will disagree, but from HS videos, especially when there is a lot of talking going on, the facial animations while looking realistic in one way also clearly feel like having motion capture just pasted over the models(the constant shaking and stuff which feels over exaggerated) and that to me is distracting. I won't say Mass Effect has the best facial expressions but they look damn good, are subtle and fit well with the game and do not distract you from getting immersed in the story(of course this is my opinion)
This is getting seriously ridiculous. The 360 keeps on releasing AAA titles. This is getting way to expensive for me. Maybe I should of bought a ps3, I would of saved ALOT of money since their ain't many titles to choose from. ;)
Maybe I should of bought a ps3, I would of saved ALOT of money since their ain't many titles to choose from. ;)
LOL,my thoughts exactly!bubbles for the 360 V.I.P.
Well,my time is up......going to bed.........my wife is screaming "get in here"...............guess she wants something.
But I'll be dreaming about Mass Effect............Bwa.........
Bwahahahayahahahahahaha...... ...................poor PS3 owners.
Party on 360 crusaders.
This is so going to rock my end of the 2007.
have to go to work.
This game looks better than any PS3 games.
MGS4 + Final Fantasy + Killzone
Ahhh.. and it's a new IP.
It does look better than KZ2 & MGS but these are two different types of artwork KZ & MGS are more of a realistic darken war type of setting. But from wut i seen of FFXIII that will give this a real run for its money and that the same type of artwork sci-fi action. but theres not enough screenshots/vids of FF to = compare.
that's a pretty bold statment!it look's real good,but i don't know if it looks better then mgs or killzone for that matter.
MASS EFFECT = 50+ HOURS OF GAMEPLAY ON DVD9 WITH INCREDIBLE GRAPHICS
MASS EFFECT = BEST FACIAL ANIMATIONS EVER SEEN IN A VIDEO GAME
MASS EFFECT = ENDLESS CHARACTER, ARMOR & WEAPONS CUSTOMIZATION
MASS EFFECT = AN RPG WITH GEARS/GRAW/R6V/RE4 TACTICAL GAMEPLAY
MASS EFFECT = A BIOWARE NEXT GEN TRILOGY
MASS EFFECT = GOTY
You can keep KZ2 (Guerilla who? 720p @ 30fps what?) & MGS4 (1984 Gameplay + Weird, convoluted storyline that you need to be on acid to follow). I'll be playing MASS EFFECT & THE GEARS OF WAR TRILOGYS for many happy years of gaming bliss along with the rest of the Xbox 360's growing library of consistantly great games. They just keep coming every month, after month, after month.
FPS, Sports, RPGs, Action, Strategy, Arcade, & some great RTS's on the way too. Superior Multiplayer, Co-op, Betas, Demos & global chat with my XBL friends. Do your thumbs a favor & play GEARS & MASS EFFECT & melt your face.
agrred,some really sick visual content in this game
