IGN: The First 90 Minutes of Mass Effect 3

IGN: When I first started playing Mass Effect, I set out to behave like a stony-hearted space-bitch. I was going to take the universe for everything it had: credits, loot, fame, blue ladies, the lot. It didn't last long. (Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Wanna watch so bad but I just bought Mass Effect 2 on psn and don't wanna spoil anything.

It's a written article not a video, and there isn't any plot spoilers so you should be fine if you wanna read it.

I completed the second one and will eventually play this one as well.
Boy is this an overrated franchise.

Yea that didn't really make much sense to me either haha. But I do agree, it is pretty overrated. The first one was amazing in every way. But 2 just lacked a lot, and felt like a generic shooter, and 3 looks to be even more of a shooter than 2 was, and barely like 1 at all, not an RPG game any more, and that's why i'm disappointed.

BiggCMan - Did you even read the article? They had a huge section about, you know, all of the RPG elements they've put into ME3.

Just because someone thinks that it's overrated doesn't mean he can't play it at all. It just means that he thinks it's okay and nothing for being to be going crazy about.

WOW, talk about stupidity.

Seriously misleading title.

"First 90 Minutes" gives the impression that it's a video preview;
not a author describing the beginning of the game.

Why put a time-duration in the title then?

They could've easily had "impressions" in the title.

I agree, I thought it was a video as well... :\
HardCover  +   1275d ago
The author is talking about their experience with the first 90 minutes of the game. Seems pretty appropriate to me.

EDIT: Yeah, they could have also just not added anything and left it as is. I get that you misinterpreted it, I'm just saying that I don't think that it's a very big deal or anything. It's not like it says "video" or "footage" or "leaked" or "trailer" or something along those lines in the title.

Good article , this writer is tops .......... So it looks so far that Bioware is doing a fantastic job on 3

I am in the middle of Dragon age thinking .....How is it possible for the same company to make this game . flashed of gold here and there but how dull can a game get ?
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1275d ago
Dragon age is an amazing game for me.Different strokes for different folks I guess. Also, Dragon Age is closer to all the rest of their games. Mass Effect is the one that's different.

must not watch

i thought it was going to be a video. lol good no spoiler. im excited for the game didnt have a chance to play the previous ones. but from reading this it sounds like the game brings some sort of connection between player and game. and i like that. games these days dont really make you care for the characters much. its all pew pew pew *spawn* repeat. not that its wrong i just want more substance in my single players. i didnt even care for multi-player until this gen. a good story is what made me buy games
theWB27  +   1274d ago
IDK if your a PS3 or Xboxer but play the first ones before. Your decisions and story carry over from each title. Its worth it in every way.
trenso1  +   1274d ago
Ps3 and from my knowledge we don't have the first ME. If I'm not mistaken.
theWB27  +   1273d ago
Its not, but getting ME2 on ps3 will let you pick decisions from the first one then theyll still effect 2 and youll have a ton of influence on how your ME3 story will play out. I had 4 different story arcs for ME2 when it came out and Ive got about 3 for ME3. Same character different choices.
trenso1  +   1273d ago
interesting but i think ill wait for ME3 i know im putting my self at a disposition, but with ff13-2 and plating that along with ff13 i think my hands will be tied for a while
Redlogic  +   1275d ago
Does anyone know if BioWare has said they will incorporate more RPG elements back into Mass Effect. I felt like 1 was an RPG then 2 became a Shooter with RPG elements. I really would like 3 to have much more RPG in it.
StickTwiddlers  +   1274d ago
There is actually an option at the beginning of the game around this. You can opt for a more action, more RPG or the 'default Mass Effect experience'.
EmperorDalek  +   1274d ago
They showed the skill tree, it was bigger than ME2's and while smaller than ME1's, there will be a more variations of the powers. In ME2 you leveled a power to the top level and got to evolve it in one way or another, there will be more of those options in ME3. The level cap is back to 60.

Weapon mods are back with weapon benches, adding 20-25% accuracy and damage with two mods is something they showed in a video. Some enemies drop weapons. It also has 40,000 lines of dialogue, whereas the first two have 20 and 25,000.

It uses similar combat to ME2, but it adds thing such as rolling, stealth attacks (I think) and better melee attacks to make the combat better. I don't know about armour though.

This is what I remember them saying a while ago, so they might have changed some of these since then.

There aint anything RPG about mass effect 3.
giovonni  +   1274d ago
I know I'm getting it, Two was my joint, I would like to see a little of one and two added with in this one I enjoyed the planet exploration in two, but liked the choices and changing of the story in one.
2pacalypsenow  +   1274d ago
cant believe that chobot girl is in this game i just lost a little respect for this game , Glad Naomi Hunter is in this game (VOICE) :-)
munish23  +   1274d ago
I want to read this, but I can't. Mass Effect 1 and 2 were some of my most favorite games ever, so this one will no doubt be another. I have the collector's edition preordered, just about a month left to wait.
giovonni  +   1274d ago
I would like to be able to change everyone's story in the game directly or indirectly though.a little more, for example, I make a bad choice in the game or I don't agree with a crew member the majority of the game changes my relationship status, and they end up double crossing me somewhere down the line.
Or become a space pimp and get an std which hurts my rpg status until I compete the side mission to cure it.
