Commander Shepard and his crew have just landed in the middle of a hot zone, where they must decide whether to save an alien race from a dangerous plague, in this scene from the Xbox 360 game.
i like the idea behind this game. but, that was 4 minutes of nothing but talking. i hope the pace of the game doesn't suffer due to this focus on conversation.
if you didnt like KOTOR, you wont like this. Its an RPG first, so it is certainly going to be much more slow placed than traditional shooters.
agreed,and i'm not attacking the game. i think this new conversation mechanic seems like a good idea, but i thought that having to micromanage every conversation could get tedious and lead to the game playing "slow". i hope not, as i'm jazzed about the story.
Man all those choices man Ima love this game. Im going to make my squad all human and kill that krogan right away cant stand that hunchback it has.
November will be here soon enough..
I have a budget to buy just one more game be it on the 360 or the PS3 ... and I am seriously considering this one. Unbelievable graphics and ever since I beat FF7 like 6 months ago, I've just been hooked on RPGs.
One thing though.. I'm kinda dissapointed in the facial features of these characters. Its like sometimes they look that their just staring into la-la land or something. Besides that though... beautiful.
this looks like a great game the 360 stepped there game up this generation but its still not enough to contend with the ps3
You couldn't resist mentioning Sony in this thread could you? It started off so nice but there is always one knob to start the conversation going downhill into a PS3 vs 360 flamewar. Btw, you are correct it's not even contending with the PS3, it's crushing it.
This game will be another fantastic AAA game and definately my most wanted title this holiday.
if your not going to say something nice, dont say anything at all. This has nothing to do with PS3. Give props, game looks nice, Ill be sure to recommend to my friends who own a xbox. The way of choosing your comments and answers seem very cool. It will probably make you want to play it again to see what would have happened if you said something different.
HAHA LOL!! He made a funny.. he was trying to imply that the PS3 actually has games when it really doesn't! Great sarcasm!
whats the game
talk 2 everybody
boring crap boring boring boring
better off on the cartoon network
This is one aspect of the game. I watched another trailer that was all gameplay and the battles were action packed, also there is another one where you are driving vehicles which is cool.. This is an RPG game with action elements..
I spend a lot of time watching CGI footage in Final Fantasy as well as lots of dialogue in Oblivion.. I don't think those games are boring..
You see Xbox 360 and it doesn't matter what it is you instantly hate it.
ps3 is a joke.
i dont see why people complain about the dialogue system. its completely revolutionary. something as simple as talking to an npc turns into a huge movie like cinematic with AMAZING graphics and people complain? would you guys rather walk up to someone and press A then a box pops up and says a bunch of text? then you press A again and it shows you more text.. no cinematic camera angles or anything..
come on people, this is an rpg! just by watching that video i can tell the story on this game is just going to be massively immersive and i can say for shure this game IS the game of the year.
EDIT. you know what i just realized... everyone complaining about it is a ps3 owner/fanboy. i guess it just hurts deep down inside that there fanboyishness is never going to allow them to buy this game since the trilogy is 360 exclusive.
People will always complain sadly. Everyone is a critic. Unfortunately thats something you and I gotta deal with.
It's called jealousy. There are no current or upcoming games at the moment that can match the graphics of Mass Effect, no matter how much they go on and on about the power of the cell and blablabla. It's hard to accept for some. I'd actually take Mass Effect over Halo.
This dialog crap plus slow gameplay is a major turn offff.
And i'm pretty sure your one of the few that though Lair was fun!! and that it was wrong for Edge to give it a 3/10!
.........................wait. .........................hmmmm. ............what was that......oh...... oh this is news for GAMERS.........oh im sorry wrong place.
that dosent even make any sence... i guess its a complement to the game... the graphics are soo realistic you confuse it for a real life movie.
you know, its a good thing these ps3 fanboys are letting us know they are jealous of 360 owners as they click on a video for a 360 exclusive game,wich is under the 360 section, and complain about it EVEN WHEN THERE NEVER GONNA PLAY IT.
seriously dont u guys have anything better to do like watch videos for games coming out on ps3.... oh wait..
I cant wait for this game. I loved KOTR and Jade Empire although they lagged a little for me the games were great. So I am expecting good things from this game
I guess everyone else here Hated Heavenly sword with all the
'Its all cimetatics' and whatknot....
Another AAA game for Xbox360, another reason for Sonyfans to commit suicide.
Its always the same people bashing this game. We know this title bothers you; your opinions do not need to be repeated in every Mass Effect thread. We seen some gameplay already and the devs say the game has plenty of action packed gameplay its not like devs of this calibur with an history of greatness needs to show off anything to hating fanboys.
In the long run I feel this series will do as much damage to Sony as Halo does, this must be why you people are looking to nit-pick comforting themselfs.
Doesn't make any sense Playstation consoles have always been known for RPG's, not the case this generation compred to the 360. Many PS fans fell in love with epic JRPS for their epic story telling with lots of movies. All they show for PS3 RPG's is screens of cutscenes/CGI yet you complain and bash when the 360 has found its FF.
You bash Mass Effect because it has Epic scale with ingame interactive story telling that has better graphics than 99% of Sony CGI cutscenes.
Sony troops Hate Mass Effect because its an 3rd person tactical shooter that can be played almost turn base style or like GRAW and GOW. Sony people hate ME because it can be played like a shooter and you can tell the AI team members where to go using the D-PAD( Like GRAW, U do not have to pause sh&t!).
Its understandable when you combine Vehicle use, space travel; exploring worlds, GRAW and Gears gameplay, Story telling where you dicide how to play it and the choice making altering the outcome(not overall).
Sony kidz are afraid that this will be a monster. I know you people are actually more envyous than anything else your fanboyism won't allow you to own it but you want it. You also maybe upset this is being done on the 360 and not the PS3. The technical side of this title has you people upset.
Think to yourself if a dev thinks they have revolutionized story telling what do you think they'll be showing off the most, the new state of the art ground breaking story telling or the same 5 or 6 year old 3rd person shooting gamplay that became mostly popular with Graw and GOW?.
You keep dissagreeing because you know PS3 will be dead last this whole generation. Play B3yond Welcom3 Chang3.
Is that a page from your diary?!
Meh i couldnt even watch the whole video felt to sleep. lack of interest really.
Forza 2, Bioshock, Halo 3, PGR4, and now Mass Effect. We're getting AAA titles almost monthly. Mass Effect will be another contender for game of the year.
This game proves blu-ray is not needed. You can add Heavenly Sword, Lair, Motorstorm and Resistance and you still don't get the amount of gameplay (50 hours) and the graphics of this beauty. All on one good ole DVD.
Oh yes ps3, get pwned!
With these AAA games, the death knell of PS3 is ringing so loud it has driven the Sony foot soldiers in a panicked frenzy that's why you see them firing wild shots in every 360 post.
I wonder how long the loading times will be on this game.
yikes i sure wouldnt want to be an x360 owner.
Whenever you load up crap like Lair, HS and Warhawk on your Blu-ray player and must be telling yourself WTF if I'm playing sh!t I'm sure as hell going to tell others that their games are sh!t too.
LOL, no one cares what your opinion is Tools !
Stop CRYING & go buy a $30 BluRay movie !!
We'er sorry SOny sold you a movie player !!!
It's not our fault you spent $600+ on the #3 out of 3 consoles & your Exclusives suck & your Multiplats are Inferior !!!
We'er sorry all the AAA titles & GOTY awards go to Xbox 360 !!!
LOL, GO CRY TO YOUR MOMMY ABOUT IT SON - WE DON'T CARE !!!
hah ais he joking about halo 3? cause the game is brilliant and i knwo what im talking aoutt the graphics are awesome but we 360 owners expect to much nothuing on any conole atm plays like halo 3 fact its like ur ina movie haha tusavo high way s jawdropping and tons more out door areas good i love it resistance fall of man is a crap game and has identical grapics to halo 3 whhich to me is a let down from haklo 3 and halo has no anti alias but the gameplay and textures+ lighting never seen that ina console game only on half life lost coast it hs full hdr eveywere
.. a significant day for gamers. Mass Effect and Uncharted both release on the 20th, as well as 2 other AAA titles the names of which escape me now (but they were mentioned on G4's The Feed last night). We'll get to see a head to head comparison in sales for all these games but really, only same genere games should be compared. I have ME reserved already. It looks to be a great season for games...
This isn't actually a game play video, just a cinematic cut scene. It looks nice, but we've seen enough negative results from cut scenes to actual game play. For all of the "news" posters out there, please keep your titles accurate because I feel as if I wasted my time waiting for in-game action.
