It is funny to hear how ME3 is inspired by games like Halo and such but back in 2005/early 2006 with ME1, Bioware said that ME1 was inpsired by games such as Deus Ex and movies like Blade Runner and Star Trek 2.

Oh boy have the tables have turned....

Why o why2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

what, no more rpg influences then..Shows its direction i suppose. Its becoming more of a shooter than an rpg

...Most of the franchises that keep things simple and easy enough for most people to buy, actually.

In other words, about everything that's wrong with videogames nowadays.

Most people with your type of complaint are the ones that suck at those games.

Wizziokid2550d ago

Call of Duty... really.
don't follow COD Bioware, you're better than that.

Johandevries2550d ago

You were better than that.

...With so many "inspirations" I fear the final game will be rather uninspired.

Halo = The Scifi elements
Assassins Creed = Stealth takedowns/Omni Blade
Gears of war = Shooting mechanics

Call of Duty?????? WTF!

I'm starting to not like the way some of this stuff sounds..

LightofDarkness2550d ago

"Call of Duty??????"<---- multiplayer. Just wait for it....

krazykombatant2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

Ummm weapons customization= COD probably. (blops to be exact)

Nate-Dog2550d ago

Lol was CoD the first franchise to introduce that too?

2x 360 Exclusives and 2x Multi which perform better on 360. Still the most qualitiy is on 360.
