Mass Effect's project manager at BioWare, Casey Hudson, has been making some pretty bold statements. Namely, he claims that the characters are, in fact, real.
Yea sure they are.
like Lars and the real girl. You know, like really real.
While I love Mass Effect's characters, the most realistic and living characters created by BioWare are Baldur's Gate 2 characters.
Hope Mass Effect is as good as BioWare classics and is not a waste like NeverWinter Nights.
Hm, I played the hell out of Neverwinter Nights for years. It took time for people to warm up to it and get to creating the campaigns.
I've never been disappointed with BioWare. Im pretty confident that Mass Effect is going to be one of my favorites of the year (SciFi is my favorite genre).
With all the hype about how "Emotional" and "DRAMATIC" it is, the characters don't do much more than flap their mouths like Puppets. The character models look amazing. the lipsync is terrible, as well as the voice acting..
Its going to be a fun game i am 100% sure, but the voices & animation are no where NEAR Heavenly Sword or Drakes.
They don't even make angry faces.. or happy faces... The mouths just move.. GOD this is annoying. Lets not act like a bunch of FPS addicted HALO3 fanboys are going to run around caring for characters in a game. Acting as if the game is so emotional its going to make them cry.. FFS thats what Final Fantasy is for.
We hear this bs about games almost every generation.. The game with "real" characters.
Everyone who disagrees with me:
Please post videos of mass effect's characters Speaking/Animating in a way better than Heavenly Sword or Uncharted. If not, just keep disagreeing like cowards.
Dude shut up. Thats all I have to say eat a d|ck and shut up.
Heavenly Sword's cineamatics(ie CGI cut-scene) with the actual engine being used in Mass Effect?? Tell me, when all those good character animations are going on in Heavenly Sword can you interact with them or do you just sit back and watch them??
I won't argue that the CGI scenes in HS are great and the lipsyncing and animation is great.. But for you to slam Mass Effect is way off the mark. Let's compare the Starry Night Halo 3 trailer to the HS scenes you are referring too and then you have a better arguement and a fair fight.. Same goes for Uncharted and I think ME's character models and lipsyncing are better than Uncharted.
What? Is it not 4-D enough without the Emotion Engine(TM) from Sony for you?
Beat it troll, being an ignorant zealot is no way to spend life son.
Mass Effect takes a dump on those games. Don't even mention Heavenly Sword and Mass Effect in the same sentence. It's a disgrace to Bioware.
AHAHAHAHAHAA.........you think HS and Drake looks better than ME ahahahahahahahaha....I'll be god damned if that wasn't the funniest sh!t I've heard all day.
HS owns in the category. The facial features and voice acting in it are well beyond anyone else in any game. Good luck to Bioware with this one, they have some really stiff competition.
...has already said that the characters are more life-like than in any other game they have played. Most of HS's moments of conversation are done in CGI. I'd be ashamed if they didn't look better.
I give props to PS3 where it's due (Uncharted), but Mass Effect's conversation system is amazing.
its not a person its a PIGMANBEAR........NO WAIT! IS A BEARMANPIG AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!
you I saw a leprechaun, now suck my balls.
You hear that? They are real so don't be going around and shooting them. If you murder someone in-game that is real your azz is going to jail!!!
How come the 360 gets all these sci-fi shooty games? I want Mass Effect dammit.
because good developers rather spend more time working on their game than working on the hardware
"Casey Hudson, has been making some pretty bold statements. Namely, he claims that the characters are, in fact, real. "
No submitter, nice try to protray BioWare as "over promising" or "promising Real Life People!!!1!'.
He doenst mean *AT ALL* that the characters are __IN__FACT__ real. You either have a reading comprehension issue or are trying your best to spread inaccura FUD that makes BioWare look bad.
I personally believe the latter, because It is clear from the article that he says "These characters are living people”
....we should let Hudson finish his sentence....
“**I mean** they have personalities and you literally interact with them in the way that you'd have real-life conversations. You get to know them, you start to care about them", he added.
The author of the article took a little liberty, a little detour and split the man's quote in half, for the purpose of making a little light....
*AND* You have come in here and taken that "little detour" bit and used it to misrepresent what the guy at BioWare was trying to say.
They look look and play incredibly real but maybe some certain employee has been eating his kids super glue again, lol.
the one that takes a crap on this crappy game this game is nothing but hype just like the rest of your so called great games that were crappy to begin with! like Halo 3 and [email protected]
