a few more months. Wonder why they had a sword. They know I love swords

I thought Arrival was ok.

looks alittle too much like ME2, which isn't a bad thing, but a bit more variation WOULD be nice, and I am guessing that will happen.

what magazine is this by the way? I mean it's not often that you see 12 page features in mags anymore.

and yes great quality scans.
someone posted an article with the same screens, but using an gameboy camera to take the pictures.

I can't wait either. I have always been a big Bioware fan and think the Mass Effect series is some of their best work.

The lighting and shadowing looks improved. It looks like they might be using actual dynamic lighting and shadows similar to other upcoming Unreal 3 games like Gears of War 3. To me this makes a huge difference in the quality of the graphics.

I'm also really happy that they are expanding the RPG elements in the game. Mass Effect 2 was still a fantastic game for what it was, but more depth will be greatly appreciated.

I can't wait to see how all the story arcs play out in Mass Effect 3.

I'm SO happy that my choices in the Original Mass Effect are going to take effect in the Third title. I was dissapointed with characters who could have potentially died in the original, however survived, only making cameos in the second title. It sounds as though Bioware had the plot mapped out from the begining, what with the choice of killing or saving the Rachni Queen. Also, I'm glad to have heard in the details released a few days ago that the third installment is going to feature enhanced RPG elements, hopefully like the Original Mass Effect (My favourite out of the two) with the addition of the second games combat. I look forward to finishing one of the finest trilogy's this generation...

Mass Effect 3 is probably my most anticipated game for 2011. I can't fucking wait to conclude my Shepard's journey.
Kingdom Come  +   1765d ago
I'm intrigued as to what will become of the Mass Effect Universe after the release of Mass Effect 3. I remember thinking on the release date of the Original Mass Effect whilst playing it that the Universe would make a fantastic setting for an MMO...
VictoriousB13  +   1765d ago
Beyond the Mass Effect trilogy, I wouldn't be surprised if an MMO was conceived based in that universe. Although I think Bioware has got it's hands all tied up with SWTOR at the moment.
LightSamus  +   1765d ago
The fourth page looks amazing. Melee attacks could be quite fun.
TheLeprachaun  +   1765d ago
Can't wait for the ending to the greatest gaming trilogy ever in my opinion. Also looking forward to the inevitable MMO in a few years.
B1663r  +   1765d ago
And a movie...
tubers  +   1765d ago
Hope the PC version gets significantly better textures at least.

The games gonna be great anyway so I'd nitpick on that :)
CoLD FiRE  +   1764d ago
Especially the armor textures.
theafroman  +   1765d ago
and entire civilization could die wow.
B1663r  +   1765d ago
If they stick to the hard core sci-fi literature that it is based upon, all of civilization will eventually die... But for an abundance of reasons I suspect they will choose a candy coated version, because the reality of Galaxy wide extinction events is probably too hard for people not versed in current thinking in hard core sci-fi to accept.

So it will end "happily ever after".
jrbeerman11  +   1765d ago
well ya and I think they would like to expand, so to basically handcuff yourself into only prequels, would take a lot of future away from universe.

I hope that they dont kill off all life in universe, though no one would see that coming.
Aloren  +   1765d ago
Well, the whole point of mass effect was to have your decisions influence the sequels. SO I think that If you did everything "wrong", you could very well have a bad ending. I'd like that anyway.
Lamarthedancer  +   1765d ago
enhanced RPG elements....

So no more focusing on the shooting elements with ammo and non customization to weapons...because they were the two main things in ME2 that buged didn't feel as much as an RPG as the first one

The more I see, the more I want. Going to have to get Mass Effect 2 this summer in preparation for it!
huzzaahh  +   1765d ago
It's totally worth it.
AnonUser5555  +   1765d ago
I'm on the verge of finishing up Mass Effect 2 (PS3). Already looking forward to 3!
jrbeerman11  +   1765d ago
well you need to finish mass effect 2 AT LEAST 4 to 5 times to get full experience, and hardcore or insanity difficulty.

too many do 1 normal soldier playthrough and stop, and thats just a crime.
AnonUser5555  +   1765d ago
lol, i'm 25 and about to graduate medical school. I'm lucky to have beaten it once. i just dont have the time for 4-5x through a game like this lol.
evrfighter  +   1765d ago
at least 4-5 times?

jeezus christ man that's borderline trekkie status.

this isn't a mass effect fan site. We're gamers most people will beat the game and go on to the next game on their list.

me I've started about 10 games that I havn't finished. Mass Effect 2 is one of them. I enjoyed it corrupt save file leaves me at a "meh, someday" phase.
jrbeerman11  +   1764d ago
you can beat this game 4 times in the same amount of time it takes to beat fallout 3 once
No_Pantaloons  +   1765d ago
I hate that they say it ends the trilogy, but then the following scan says they're not done with the ME universe.
Makes me think they have some lame plan to milk it in the works.

The original story was so epic they could easily make it longer than 3 games, especially when not a lot happens in ME2 concerning the reapers. I would much rather see them pace things out than try and cram everything into one last game.
Plus where does that leave the next games if the reapers are stopped, spinoffs like DA2 only named correctly.

And don't even get me started on seeing the word "multiplayer" in those scans. Stay on track bioware, I'm warning you, we all want this to be good.

Why does that Shepherd look so much like Kaiden Alenko?

Never mind. Forgot you could choose between either him or Ashley.

God damn, there is a chick in the style of Grey Fox, or Cyborg Ninja. So epic looking. I'm very interested in Mass Effect 3 given all the information I know already. Although I did absolutely love Mass Effect 2 and all the released DLC.

The only thing I'm hoping for is that they made the animations more varied and less stiff. Also, I'm sure each species moves/acts differently, so how about we see that exist in gameplay too. This won't make or break the game for me though, I'll buy it regardless.
jrbeerman11  +   1765d ago
you wont see new animations I will assume. I honestly think that the gameplay will largely stay intact, while adding new story, characters, stats, weapon options, levels. It is a 2 year window, not enough time to change animations and core gameplay all too much
vil311  +   1765d ago
The article does mention new close combat moves, rolling, and climbing ladders. That's a handful of new animations for sure.
PRHB HYBRiiD  +   1765d ago
wooo i love mass effect :3
earbus  +   1765d ago

iNMyFiN4LH0uR  +   1765d ago
scans or screenshots don't do Mass Effect justice.
telekineticmantis  +   1765d ago
Is it me or did I just see
Grey Fox. lol
huzzaahh  +   1765d ago
With boobs.
ME1989  +   1765d ago
I can't WAIT!

My most anticipated 2011 game. I can't wait to see how everything turns out, so many variables and different scenarios, and YES, old squaddies back!!!!!! FUCK YES.
analsupreme  +   1765d ago
Clearly not aware of what HQ means. Scan it so that it's large enough to read.
UnRated  +   1765d ago
Finally some decent scans. I'll still be picking up the magazine when I go pick up Crysis 2 some time this week :D
MRMagoo123  +   1765d ago
Well imo im hoping this is a better game overall with alot better rpg intergration because to me ME2 was underwhelming at best and ME1 lacked polish and could of had some of the more mundane parts removed or improved.
xlockingupthesunx  +   1765d ago
Kaidan looks badass.
tommyth3cat  +   1764d ago
So glad I picked him over Ashley.
Inzo  +   1765d ago
Same old, same old.
Maester07  +   1765d ago
Same old new news you mean?
iamironman  +   1764d ago
quality of scans are okay
krazykombatant  +   1764d ago
Woah Woah Woah, just read that the Alliance takes back the Normandy cuz they feel it's theirs??????? WTF? I know its just an excuse for BioWare to make the Normandy look better, but if in my renegade playthrough, and in most peoples i'm sure the alliance and "the council" don't like you now. Doesn't seem to really convince me. Anyways I'm gonna try to avoid some of these articles, ME2 was spoiled wayy to much for me.
xlockingupthesunx  +   1763d ago
I bet you they take it a step further, and that's the reason why Cerberus is after you: for 'stealing' their ship.
realgamer890  +   1764d ago
That chick ( i think) cyborg thing with the katana looks kick-ass

I'm really interested in the new companion, and if hes related to Kahlee Sanders. I figured they would tie in the books eventually.
