OXM UK: "Giving Mass Effect 3 a rousing finale is more important than paving the ground for Mass Effect 4, according to creative director Casey Hudson, though BioWare does have "a few ideas" for future Mass Effect titles already."
Me3 will probably be disappointing to anybody who played the first mass effect. Bioware has been continually dumbing down the RPG genre ever since they have been bought by EA. Mass effect 1 and DA Origins were developed before they were bought, while the sequels were developed after; there is a clear difference, and not in a good way!
actually, thats didnt bothered me much since the rpg elemnts in mass effect 1 is nothing to write home about. As a whole package, i thought mass effect 2 was way more intresting.
Agreed! "Cant wait" for Mass Effect 3!
DA2 bothered me but ME2 didnt. I will make my opinion based on ME3
They went way too casual with DA2... It was so disappointing not being able to change your companion's armor
ME2 was just fine.
Honestly, by this point I've come to accept the fact that ME is no longer an RPG/Shooter, it's just a TPS with very light RPG elements but at the same time, ME2 was great so I can't really complain.
I don't want ME4. I just want a strong, solid trilogy as originally planned. Don't give in to EA's indoctrination. Fight off the urge to milk a franchise into mediocrity.
Agreed, some guys just don't know when to stop. Kinda like every anime-series out there. (Not all, but most of 'em! Especially Bleach)
I agree. Mass Effect was planned as a trilogy and thats how Bioware should see it out. ME4 would be rubbish anyway.
Why would it be rubbish? Look at ME3, it looks amazing.. And you think ME4 would be rubbish, LOL
Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull..... Get what I'm saying?
The Mass Effect universe is vast and there are many stories to tell. Why cut everything short with a trilogy? it doesn't even need to be Shepard.
A Spin-Off, imo, would be great. Bioware has created such a great universe, why not make the most of it? As long as the quality and fun is there, I'll keep buying.
*spoiler alert* I wouldn't mind seeing what the crew did will shepard was dead for two years.
Me too, but would there be enough compelling content to warrant a whole game? I'd probably be more comfortable with it coming as DLC, like RAAM's Shadow for Gears 3.
-Metal Gear Solid 1-4 taught us that no story, no matter how bizarre it gets, is impossible... :)
Making it all the more challenging for themselves, interesting. Well after this they'll have some time to think about the 4th Mass Effect and how to appropriately program it for the Next gen Consoles.
Spoiler alert much? Quite clear by that statement that one of the endings is total ownage of the entire galaxy by the reapers. Which to be honest is one of the endings i was hoping for. I hate the idea of humans always being able to save the day no matter what the enemy is. Reapers wipe out all life forms every 50,000 years, its their job.
there is such a thing as wearing out your welcome, and Mass Effect 4 would definitely be doing that. i love the ME series to death, but three is enough.
Couldnt agree more. A fourth mass effect would anger me so much. I hate Extortion Arts more than anyone and if they drag this masterpiece of a series on beyond number 3 i will hunt them down. And hurt them.
Yeah you guys are so right since you can see the future and know how Mass Effect 4 will exactly turn out. Seriously what are you guys drinking? I would like to know so that I accidently don't drink it and make wild speculation out of my ass... There's no such thing as Mass Effect 4. It's not confirmed let alone given a time of release yet you're crying like little girls about how awful it'll be and how three games for a trilogy is enough...
The ending of Dragon Age Origins didn't stop Dragon Age II. Mass Effect 4 will just star Commander Hawke.
me1 is one of my fav games ever!!!i i hope its more like 1 than 2. i didnt think 2 was bad but i miss all the rpg stuff that was taken out.still play me1 on 360 all the time and got it from steam but cant get it ti play
Shepard lives at the end of ME3, becomes a consul member, marries Miranda & now runs Cerberus. That the intro to ME4. can't wait bring on ME4
i thought it was a trilogy?
So much for them calling it a trilogy if they go ahead with future numbered titles of ME4 and over.
Get your facts straight. Shepard's story is a trilogy, not the Mass Effect games.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... "Officially announced on December 11, 2010, the game is scheduled for a March 6, 2012 release and will mark the final chapter in the Mass Effect TRILOGY of video games, completing the story of Commander Shepard." http://masseffect.wikia.com... "It is intended to be the final game in the planned Mass Effect TRILOGY." http://www.rockpapershotgun... "Anyone who’s not looking forward to the conclusion of the Mass Effect TRILOGY is an idiot" http://www.webpronews.com/m... "For those who have been wrapped up in the Mass Effect saga, dating all the way back to 2007, the day for the “final” installment in the TRILOGY is nearly upon us. " http://www.gamespot.com/mas... http://www.metacritic.com/g... "BioWare completes the Mass Effect TRILOGY with Mass Effect 3" http://www.flesheatingzippe... "Bioware has admitted that the final episode of its Mass Effect TRILOGY will be much more difficult than its predecessors, stating that “normal” mode in Mass Effect 3 will be as hard as “veteran” mode in the previous two releases." Next time read up on what people are saying and you get your facts straight.... Let alone the fact that you didn't comprehend when I said NUMBERED.
Funny Blacktric. Bioware stated the main games as a trilogy, which has Shepard as the main person.
i want Mass effect to have 5-7 games with shepherd's storyline, like harry potter books. ME universe is so well made just like HP's.
Honestly, stop at ME3 and don't go further. Spin offs and (way further down the line) remakes I can deal with but I don't want a ME4 after ME3. It's planned as a trilogy, don't ruin it.
so they'll turn it into an annual series after this storyline's wrapped up? if you're wondering whether they will, remind youself this is ea and then you'll have your answer.
Personally speaking, I hope ME3 makes it impossible for a ME4. I feel At this point they've made a proper trilogy and with that means bringing it to an actual end. if they wanna come back and do a Lucas, that's fine. just let me get a real ending to a great saga.
Mass Effect 1 will most likely still be the best story-wise. Mass Effect 3 seems to solely focus on Combat, so now it has become a fully fledged TPS game.
Numbering games should be banned.
I'm sure all loose ends will be tied up except for the fact that we could possibly see someone familiar in ME4 regardless of who the main character is. I am looking forward to the story ending. You can always go through the 3 games again when this is over. I am replaying ME2 right now with all the DLC. I could careless about the multiplayer right now as the story really has me interested.
