Hope it's better than the last one

AngelicIceDiamond2982d ago

But thank God its not a prequel though.

Halo2ODST22982d ago

Prequels are great, just look at halo reach & Wars while Squels ... Halo 4 .. so squels arent always good, im not saying mass effect 4 will be bad, just defending prequels

Cobberwebb2982d ago

I don't care for some side story either, it really needs to be set after ME3 events to interest me.

Fez2982d ago

What's everyone got against prequels? They can open up the story with new characters and explain what motivated the characters in the original game(s).

Imagine someone should down MGS3 because it was "just a prequel"!

DarthZoolu2981d ago

thank god I hate prequels

Jonny5isalive2981d ago

commander Shepard is going to come back as a cyborg reaper and garrus and crew need to take him down!!!

mikeboccher2981d ago

It's literally impossible to be a prequel so it's not that much of a surprise

It will be hard for Bioware to achieve it then, Mass Effect 3 is a masterpiece, just like the first two.

Alexious2982d ago

Haven't played it, but I've heard everything from "it rocks" to "it sucks". I'll be playing it for sure before the next one arrives.

Gazondaily2982d ago

The ending let it down to be honest but otherwise a great game yeah.

Tontus2982d ago

Mass Effect 3 gets far too much crap flung at it.

It is a masterpiece and I'm satisfied with the extended cut ending.

DoctorRedBeard2982d ago

Mass Effect 3 definitely was not a master piece. It was a good game however it was a huge let down from Mass Effect 2. ME2 being the best in the franchise in my opinion. ME3 was good but not on the same level. the ending for one was one major downer for Mass Effect 3.

WitWolfy2981d ago (Edited 2981d ago )

All I have to say is death of franchise thanks to the "RGB" ending.

The ending alone made a lot of fans me myself included to turn their backs on the franchise altogether.

Tdmd2981d ago

I agree. It was a amazing game that got way too much crap from gamers because of how it ended - which, with the extended cut, wasn't bad at all.

I loved the last one, I just didn't care much for the end.

Imp0ssibl32981d ago

The journey is more important than the destination anyway.

Magicite2982d ago

after great work on dragon age, Im sure they will do the same here.

Imp0ssibl32981d ago

Yeah I'm loving the new Dragon Age!

antz11042982d ago

Aside from the very end 3 was amazing. Best online co-op in a good long while too.

Antifan2981d ago

Mass Effect 3 was damn good (except the ending).

Trekster_Gamer2981d ago

I only hope their next installments are as good. theyve a lot to live up to.

I am so ready to jump into the next Mass Effect!

Seriously can't wait to see some actual footage after playing Dragon Age!

elninels2981d ago

Can I has space inquisition?

DarkOcelet2982d ago

Thats good to hear, it seems they will go back to its roots by blending Mass Effect 1 exploration system and Mako roaming with Mass Effect 2/3 action gameplay. Hopefully they add more RPG elements to the game.

Trovalli2982d ago

Yeah I would really enjoy more RPG elements. They kind of strayed away from it in 2 and 3.

Imp0ssibl32981d ago

They went too heavy with shooting, true. The RPG roots must be remembered!

Alexious2982d ago

Yes, kind of like Dragon Age 3 blended Dragon Age 1&2. Bioware is on a roll.

clouds52981d ago (Edited 2981d ago )

They should make the space exploration part too that was planned for mass effect originally. It was planned to have 3 aspects:
-3rd person shooter rpg
-space shooter dogfight / planet landing
-planet exploration with mako

Give me that!

_-EDMIX-_2981d ago

lol, very surprised anyone remembers that tidbit. That was originally what Mass Effect was supposed to be when the first started development. Because it was only going to be on 360 and this concept was before MS chose to use the DVD format again, they didn't plan to be hindered by disk space.

(most developers didn't)

Thus, Mass Effect 1 is an odd one as you can see the design of the game is really that of a game that wants to be open world...but can't.

ME2 ditched trying to be a RPG, space traveling etc type game, but deep down inside......yes, indeed many Mass Effect fans clearly want the series to be like KOTOR and or clearly better then KOTOR lol, in regards to exploration.

With Bluray and both systems having HDDs, I just can't wait to see whats in store for the series. This is game is going to be likely what the team wanted for Mass Effect 1.

If he says so then we are all quiet :|
