What Lies in Store For Mass Effect 2?

Gaming Steve writes, "Developer BioWare is reasonably tight lipped on the subject, detailing precious little info other than the fact that there are two more games stenciled in for release throughout the 360's lifespan, but behind that, nuggets prove scarce.

That doesn't mean we can't hypothesize though, does it? Perhaps do a little sleuthing of our own? Maybe even throw a few random theories into the mix. To do so will require the discussion of major spoilers, of course, so if your copy of Mass remains incomplete at this point in time, for the love of Ashley Williams, TURN BACK NOW.

With that out of the way..." (Culture, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Xbox 360)

ps3/pc versions
I bet you this penny
ZTO Jamie  +   2481d ago
PC maybe, but i doubt MS would sell the rights to Sony, unless for an very large amount of money.
Azures  +   2482d ago
ps3 version. kotor 3 will trump mass effect series tho.
SmokeyMcBear  +   2482d ago
....
maybe a game without rampant glitches or serious framerate issues or pop in.. or gameplay graphics that don't look like it belongs on the wii.
PS360WII  +   2482d ago
Salarian squad member would be cool. More areas and perhaps respawning enemies... along with a dialogue tree that branches the story line rather than the straight line it is.

I'm hoping the DLC will be cool and allow us free roam after beating the game ^^
Douchebaggery  +   2482d ago
you pretty much nailed it.
after 3 play through you realise that most of the decisions you make all have the same results.
PS360WII  +   2482d ago
yeah there is only one that actually changes things but that's in the final minuets of the game....

I'm just hoping for:

More planets to land on with a broader scope in geometry and population. I understand that creating totally different planets is a difficult task, but aside from the ones you land on for the story, most of the others looked far too similar.

There should be a greater emphasis on the Paragon/Renegade dynamic. In the other Bioware games, the similar system nets you more bonuses and even special abilities the other side can't obtain. KOTOR 2 had it best with you even being able to influence your crew. You can play that up in ME with access to special areas, stores, and the like that augment these bonuses and play to their strengths. For example, renegade players get access to a black market.

For the love of everything please, please, give us more than 4 side quest areas. I got so damn tired of seeing abandoned ship, above ground lab, underground lab, and cave.

I know the Asari are all monogendered, but do they all have to look EXACTLY THE SAME!? Aside for a handful being purple instead of blue, they all had the same facial geometry.

As far as the story goes, I'm hoping the main quest is longer than in the first game. Granted I spent 43 hours on my initial play through, the majority of that was finishing every single sidequest in the game.

And the coup de grace, I'm not going to deep into it because it's a giant spoiler. But there's a certain choice you make after a boss battle that had no ramifications on the rest of the story. I think it'd be cool if the save file carries over to the next game and you can see the result of your actions. If you've completed the game to at least that part you'll know what I'm talking about, if not then PM me and I'll tell you.

ME was an awesome game but like any game there was room for improvement. I have no doubt that Bioware will rock the sequels as the first one was a set up for a great story. I just hope they take advantage of it.

better engine and optimized code is a start.. then i'd like to see an EVEonline type thing where you can do what you want, when you want. start from a small fry, and become the whale.
Skerj  +   2482d ago
Hah thanks for reminding me, gotta log in to set a new skill to train. Kudos to you for bringing up the awesome of EVE Online. I thought something like that would be too daunting for ME, but oddly enough it was what I was expecting the first time. They could make it like Oblivion in space with a stronger narrative, or actually just merge some elements from Freelancer with the RPG elements and the story from the first. Instant win right there.
INehalemEXI  +   2481d ago
Yah I was actually hoping to free roam too. ME still was awesome though.

One thing is loading while in-game ...whats up with that. Less elevators and different loading schemes. Instead of the same gif of the mass relay with its gyroscope dilly.

I would like cgi sequences of actual travel and seeing the landscape/space were traveling through. It adds depth to the world and makes it seem larger.

sex with those pink jelly aliens?

Imagine...
"This one is aroused...yes, this one likes that, don't you, b*tch."

MS, BioWare, and EA
isnt MS still in talks with EA and BioWare about the seuqels?

" I think it'd be cool if the save file carries over to the next game "
Devs have said from the start that you'll be able to carry over your game file to the sequels.

" Microsoft will remain involved. Apparently an agreement has been reached for Mass Effect 2 and 3 to both be published by Microsoft, with BioWare and EA listed as developers."

^^Rumor^^ ofcourse so is the game going on other platforms no wait those are theories.
Nicosia  +   2482d ago
Maby pull a Ninja Gaiden 2 card? Also the head of the game studio talked about this in his keynote after GDC, there still talking so.
poos3  +   2482d ago
mass effect 2 and 3 will continue to be a trad emark or the 360 exclusive lien up it will never get ported to the ps3 never
Nevers  +   2482d ago
PLEASE GOD
just less elevators... some different scenery on undiscovered worlds would be nice too
Covenant  +   2482d ago
--On the technical side, they need to fix the framerate and graphical pop-in.

--Also, please eliminate the elevators...just a quick load screen and be done with it.

--Maybe have some combat involving the Normandy itself. Good space-based flight shooters are few and far-between.

--No more of this "finish the majority of the game with X squad member BS." You should be able to rotate members as needed w/o screwing yourself on achievement points.

--Expand the galaxy. Asari, Quarian, Krogan homes would be really great to explore. New species would be good, too. And an expanded Normandy crew.

--Make your Paragon and Renegade choices matter. They should emulate KOTOR and make your morality choices affect the game in broader ways.

--New character classes. What about playing as an alien...?

I can tell you guys this... More strange and exotic Alien Sex
moujahed  +   2481d ago
It wont be an XboX exclusive that's for sure.
ELite_Ghost  +   2481d ago
um
ps3 version, better graphics and online and online multiplayer!
AngryTypingGuy  +   2481d ago
I would like to see a little more variety to the planets. I would like more "vegetation" planets, with jungles and weird wildlife/enemies. There were a lot of planets in the first one that had mountains, mountains, and more mountains.
ZTO Jamie  +   2481d ago
Yeah, for sure.

Why has someone given you a disagree for this? So frustrating when people give you a disagree when you even slightly slander a game.
AngryTypingGuy  +   2481d ago
Yeah, people disagree over nothing. If you say anything even remotely anti-Sony, you'll have 20 disagrees. Idiots.

Anyway, it was just a suggestion. Mass Effect may be my favorite game of the year. It's all I've been playing since its release. I've beaten it once and am on my second time through. I love the game, but would like to see a little more variety to the planets' terrain in the next installment.
Big Jim  +   2481d ago
.
Hopefully they'll have far more frequent and far more explicit sex scenes.
bumnut  +   2481d ago
how about more populated environments? even shenmue which is an old dreamcast games has more populated environments.

i dock at a space station and there are only 5 people on it and i can only talk to 1 of them?!?!?!?! wtf

not good enough, i will not be buying me2 after playing the 1st one, unless they make lots of changes and it 'wows' me

they need to take a dump on UE3
game is great; Unreal Engine 3 is not. Bioware needs an engine designed with their game in mind. UE3 was not a good engine for a racer (Fatal Inertia), and is not good for big-scale RPG's (Too Human dumped it, and Mass Effect has engine problems)

also, with the pretty sparse worlds, not many items to find, lame sidequests, etc.; why not use 2 discs and add alot more content to the game? make the worlds fleshed out, instead of pretty backdrops; i know i dont give a fuhh having to switch discs for this
