With the franchise's latest game bombing commercially and with critics alike, is it time for EA to consider working on a Mass Effect remaster?
EA is the only major publisher that hasn't hopped on board the remaster craze
Yeah. I can't really blame them, though. A remake probably won't make them nearly as much money as releasing a new game with a half-assed multiplayer system.
A remake is different from a remaster. Remakes and remasters never make as much money as new installments, but they do raise awareness and raise money regardless.
Yeah. I meant remaster. I also agree, because as I've said in the article, the remaster would give EA a chance to gauge and generate interest in the franchise.
To be honest they could do a remaster/remake-retelling to fix any issues fans had with the games. I'd like to see old cool down weapons introduced in the second game and then for the third game they can literally change the entire ending, non of that star child crap. It would prepare them for a 4th game with Shepard.
I doubt EA will go that far. Even just a reskin to make the models look up-to date seems like a longshot. But who knows, right? Maybe if we collectively throw enough cash at our monitors, EA will listen.
For f**k sake.... ENOUGH WITH REMASTERS. Seems to me that people prefer playing the same games over and over again instead of new ones...
Why do you care If the games are fun and enjoyable to the individual?
Remasters don't prevent companies from making new games. Maybe pay a little more attention. Almost all remasters that come out also have a new installment in the franchise that recently came out, or one in development. So if you don't like remasters, don't play them. But their existence has literally no effect on you what so ever.
That's the power of nostalgia for you.
That's the power of a truly well-developed game. Nothing to do with nostalgia. There are some games for 10/20/30 years ago that run circles around today's releases in terms of fun and replayability (a lot of them don't have achievements either...imagine that).
At this point, let the IP rest for 5 years before you announce anything new.
2022 seems like too far away. At that point, the original ME would probably need a remake with modern mechanics, features + graphics than just a facelift with a remaster.
Still my favorite Mass Effect game, the original game was full of discovery and exploration. I would buy the game immediately.
Definitely. I might have been one of the few that loved exploring the planets with the mako.
No about 3 years ago was a time for Mass Effect remaster. Now it's soured.
Why? Mass Effect 3 had already came out 3 years ago, so it couldn't have been that game's ending that soured it. Andromeda has nothing to do with the original trilogy. So it couldn't be that. So why is it soured now?
Just the first one
ME1 with Andromeda graphics + features would be sweet. I finished the first game seven times I think before I moved on to ME2 and ME3.
NO considering the disaster ME:A was ill pass on a mass effect remaster
