Bioware's Edmonton & Montreal studio GM, Aaryn Flynn, has been canvasing for opinions on a Mass Effect trilogy re-release in a NeoGAF post.
1080/60fps . Better graphics , better textures and make us get Mass effect 3 full achievements/trophies without playing online and make our choices matter this time around .
8k and 960 fps! Make it happen!!
Get a PC, its already there. 8k on masseffect can easily happen. For the 960fps you would need tri sli GTX 980, with a 5GHZ+ CPU lol(still wouldnt get to 960fps though maybe in the 100's)
1 billion k 1.2 billion fps There
Just want all DLC included. And smoother framerate
Of course Bioware won't change the story, but a couple of things I'd like to see improved: * The games are already in HD so a proper remaster of the graphics with 1080p 60fps with higher resolution textures can definitely be achieved in a game that isn't open world. TLoU demonstrated it can be done. * Ignore 'parity.' Make the game so it utilises the strengths of each individual console. Rumble triggers in XBO, touchpad and DS4 audio on PS4. * Voice commands on 1-3 for all consoles. * Include all DLC including Javik from the ME3 Special Edition. He is an important character, a Prothean who shares some fascinating insights and history about the last cycle of the Reapers; which is especially important considering the threat in the universe! I got him free with the N7 box set and was stunned that it was not included as standard. When Bioware revealed a list of most played player characters he was understandably at the bottom of the list. So I think all ME players should get to play him. * Remove the long load times (ME1 lifts). * Add audio narration to ALL entries in the Codex, and make sure the text font that is large enough to be readable from a couch. * ME3 was obviously focused on the main quest life or death quest. But it would be good if more minor NPCS, quests and locations are added because they help depict the game world more and I feel 3 lost some of what the first two games had. * A demo teaser of the new Mass Effect gamer. Cynical remasters designed to cash in on loyal fans are a dime a dozen. But if done with love and care like The Last of Us Remastered or Halo: MCC then I would happily tell Bioware & EA to shut up and take my money!
All I want Kinect One support, like the original ME3, but make it on all of them. Include all the DLC!
nothing. go back and continue working on ME4 or hopefully(wishful) kotor. im getting sick of this remastered bullshit all year round potentially delaying actual new games. ive already played all me games just fine on console and so have a crapload of other people.heck ive even bought most of the dlc foe 2 and 3.
Besides enhanced visuals and all DLC included, controller support for the pc trilogy would be nice.
uh no. How about just Mass Effect 4? Honestly - this is starting to seem like one big ass next-gen conspiracy these companies are in on. So we just gonna get remasters and remakes this entire gen? REALLY?
This is exactly what i have been saying all along. Console gamers are getting excited for nothing. Paying again to get what? the same game just an upres and better fps. I thought people chanted here that console gaming was supposed to be cheap. How is purchasing the same games again and again cheap. This same upgrade is given to a PC user for free on all games ever purchased (could be worth thousands of usds) when they upgrade their hardware in a 4-5 year cycle. Realise PC gamers now buying GTX 980s or even owning Fermi or kepler based cards can run games in 4k Res then down sample to 1080p(DSR) all for free for whatever game they bought last gen. Economically i find it ridiculous when corporations are rereleasing the same game on consoles and the same consolers are chanting how cheap console gaming is lol.
agree with you guys. @ Bioware... No thanks. GTA5 and TLOU were arguably the pinnacle of last gen and at least the very two games truely deserving of a next gen remaster. MCC, well it gets a pass for it being Halo 2's 10th birthday. I am sorry but ME I don't think is deserving in anyway. Why not focus on a truely next gen mind blowing Mass effect experience built from the ground up for next gen consoles... ah I know, because your owned by EA! Gamers really need to get their act together and not pony up to these cash-grabs. The publishers should just say it.. we don't want to make new games anymore, we are just releasing remasters of our back catalogue. Dead Space 1 was my favorite new IP of last gen, but as much as I love it I would not want a remaster of that. I would rather they focus on new IP's with new experiences to offer. This is really getting stupid that I pad £400 to keep having remasters thrown at me.
@Blaze929 "uh no. How about just Mass Effect 4? Honestly - this is starting to seem like one big ass next-gen conspiracy these companies are in on. So we just gonna get remasters and remakes this entire gen? REALLY? " Your getting warmer......keep following that rabbit down that trail......it gets warmer.
1) Make a significant visual improvement 2) Make a significant Ui improvement 3) Worth while gameplay improvement 4) Brand new content
The big deciding factor, for me, would be that all dlc must be included. No way in hell I'd buy a collection, then still give them more money for dlc.
Man, I love Mass Effect as much as anybody but I've played those games so many times I wouldn't buy the remaster....ME is my favorite trilogy in gaming and I choose to let the great memories I have of the franchise live on in memory and not go back to it. Of course, I say that now...when I see gameplay my love for the series may sway me and levitate my wallet from my trousers offering payment for the marvels I've seen.
1st person mode!
Instead of just visuals, maybe some new content to expand upon the game not just making it "look pretty"
Holy Shit, It's being discussed! Had a feeling it would eventually come to this especially since how successful all the other cross-overs and remaster are doing. This is SOOOO elementary!! All BioWare has to do is code the the PC version. The pc version is as good as it comes, the consoles are pc's, so cross coding/port it should 10 times more easy. Copy and paste the pc version, trans-code the keyboard/mouse controls to each consoles game-pad, give the port a fat juicy 1080p/60 texture res pack update. And the ultimate condition of this remake is that BioWare have to give us ALL ADDONS AND DLC INCLUDED, NO MORE SHADY MICRO-TRANSACTIONS!! GIVE US EVERYTHING, and I'll gladly pay $60 again for Mass Effect Trilogy for my PS4. Now, all Bethesda need to do now is ask gamers what they would want in a Skyrim remake for the new consoles. They mind as well do it, since Elder Scrolls Online more or less Bombed!!
If they did what has been done with mcc, I'd be very happy.
It would of been good if they added some of the deleted missions or enemies or any of the deleted content, which there is a lot of instead of just Graphiczzzz
I was thinking of getting the series for ps3. but i hold on to it, hope it get a tmcc treatment and not a wack port
An epic ending and seamless gameplay through all 3 games.
I'm Commander Shepherd and this is my favorite idea in the thread. Have it be like one massively huge game.
In all the times I went back and replayed these games to do different things with different Shepards, one thing I always hated about the first one was how horrid the gunplay is when compared to 2 and 3. They improved how the combat felt SO MUCH that it made it very hard to go back to ME1. It would never happen, but I would love to seem them revamp the first game to play the same as 2 or 3.
Giving it the MCC treatment and maybe allowing the full achievements/trophies in ME3 without online play would make me happy
All I want is to have the trilogy on current gen...i don't even care if its 60fps or even at 1080p...and that in the process they fix all the bugs in the original version 1.
I want all those characters and races I saved throughout 3 games participate in an epic last war instead of adding numbers to some lame galactic readiness percentage.
- Fire Casey Hudson (oh? You already did that? Excellent!) - Higher resolution textures - global illumination - Ambient Occlusion - Soft shadows - Tessellation - Proper Anti-Aliasing (yea.. I know the engine is DX9.) - Allow me to blow James Vega out the air-lock along with the reporter and the british chick. (keep the gay guy. he's a good shuttle pilot) - Bring back proper dialogue (neutral choice in ME3?) - I want all my decisions from 1, 2, and 3 to make a difference. Not red blue green. - Eliminate the stupid space-brat
I would buy it if they did all of that, but unfortunately there is like a zero percent chance of them changing the story at all, even in a small insignificant way. I don't know... I'm really up in the air on this one. I haven't played any of the DLC for ME3, because I was so disheartened and deflated by how awful the ending was that I just couldn't do it any more. But now that it has been a couple years, I have to admit that part of me wants to go back to that world. I loved it so much... Right up to the end when they crushed my soul. :(
definitely not for me,Bioware games have terrible gameplay
Looks like we're in the minority but I agree. I bought the ME Trilogy, played through ME1, got a little way into ME2, and traded it for something else. The story and cinematic stuff were cool but the shooting gameplay was terrible. I played Dragon Age: Origins, and felt the same… cool story and cinematics but terrible gameplay. I was interested in the new Dragon Age despite skipping the second one, but then I saw some gameplay and now I'm not interested anymore. Bioware is incredibly overrated imo.
Improve the combat of ME 1 to that of ME 2 & 3.
The idea of the combat in the later titles being better than that of the original is subjective, and oh-so very arguable. At the very least, they were two very separate combat systems, both approached in an entirely different way.
How about a coherent narrative across all three games? No? Then don't re-release the trilogy. How about just the first game?
The first game is all i can replay again, then just ignore the other games like they don't exist. It's a shame that it could've been much better.
Leave ME1 the hell alone, it was perfect. Just update the graphics like 343 did with Halo 1 & 2.
I think its a re-'re-release
I never got to finish the first one bcs of RROD, so I would be open for a trilogy remaster in a single disc.
1080 60/30 all MP maps , all DLC and don't screw ME 4.all that reasonably priced.
Fix the plot-holes and make a new, better ending.
Thought they did that with the directors cut....
Not really, they did not adress some of the plot-points from the first two games (basically just throwing out the dark energy plot-line and introducing the new ending witch made no sense) and then there's the starchild and crucible plot-devices.
I don't want a remake. Put your resources into the next Mass Effect, just focus on that please.
The next gen works, something like the Halo MCC. Will buy.
I finished ME3 again 30 minutes ago so I'm done with the series for now. What I'd really like to see is more details on ME4, that's the least they can do for the man who stopped Saren.
not Mass Effect 3... lol
Get rid of the load times. The citadel elevator in mass effect 1 and going from one floor to the next on the normandy in mass effect 2 took forever.
All I would like is an HD update released on PC with controller support, 3 games and they never gave PC players that simple option.
If they do go ahead with this then I can sell my PS3 towards a PS4 finally. I'd like a BioShock trilogy as well :3
I'd rather they re-booted the trilogy rather than a remastered version. The story needs fixing (what about the dark matter?, cooldown weapons?, get rid of the star child, fix the issue with Tali's face, give us a new final battle against the reapers with more scenes of the other races involved, fix the slow elevators, and make a better ending instead of the Normandy picking up the crew in front of the Reaper and getting stuck on a planet.
I'd rather them not bother with a rerelease. If you were interested you would have played it by now, the VERY few who haven't and want to could easily pick up a copy on almost any system for much cheaper. The graphics would be very minor and there's little else they can do. Just leave it alone.
Man I just wish there was backwards compatibility on next gen. Oh well this will be the reason for me to switch to pc anyway. I want a remaster of KOTOR!!!
