The original Mass Effect deserves more than just a fresh coat of graphical paint. It should be expanded and split up into multiple games, along the lines of the Final Fantasy VII Remake.
I'd prefer Mass Effect 2 instead.
do it with Mass Effect 2 and just have some conclusion at the end of 2 like 3 never existed.
Yeah let's just make 2 the only title 1 can be a quick intro and Andromeda is stricken from the record.
I'd prefer the whole trilogy
I’ve waited (and probably several others) All gen for a trilogy remaster or a remake. Cmon EA give the fans what they want.
2 is already still good visually. Mass effect 1 badly needs a remake the visuals are too dated now.
Mass Effect 2 is good though. The first one is rough; really rough.
EA will just screw it up .. Mine as well leave it.
I like the sentiment of the article. A lot of the points brought up were things I hadn't considered. Call me a sucker, but I just bought in to most of what Mass Effect was selling and for me, the series delivered. However, I think there are some good ideas in the article on how to improve the experience. I'm all for giving the Mass Effect Trilogy the FF VII treatment. Mass Effect 1 especially needs more than a simple remaster. Still, even if that's all we get (and HD remaster with all of the dlc) I would play it again without a second thought.
I think the plans was to announce a remastered trilogy next month at their EA Online event.
Of all the ME games, the first has definitely aged the worst - most noticeably the combat. I'd be ok with them retroactively applying either ME3 or Andromeda's combat into ME1 and ME2 if only to make it a more uniform experience for newcomers and to prepare them for whatever comes next for this series.
I beat the game last year on pc, second time since 07, and honestly I loved it again, but the combat in some combat scenarios could use some tweaking , more so because of the bosses but the regular grunts it is fine.
The combat in ME2 and 3 is friggin boring. They basically streamlined all the fun out of it by turning it into gears of war and locking off all your powers until the enemies shields were down (at which point most anything you do would 1shot them anyways) when what they should have done is lean into the physics manipulation side of the combat and let the player spend the whole trilogy coming up with new and interesting ways to win fights.
i would definitely like a remake of mass effect 1
Mass Effect 1 is still by far my favourite. It was the tougher game but felt smarter. The only things that really holds it back would be the endless Mako exploration and Planet Probing
I loved this game. But after Anthem, it would have to be quite the sell to get me to pay BioWare and EA more money.
I have a feeling bioware wouldn't be involved in more than a consultant capacity it would most likely be a third party EA brings in with the only goal to improve texture and combat like most studios do with remasters. I'd assume bioware is balls deep in butchering the next Dragon Age by this point
I'd prefer not to have the game split up into episodic format. But yes I'd be down for a full remake or at very least a revamp of the gunplay and the cover system. I died so many pointless deaths when I just couldn't get cover to work.
Preferably from someone other than EA and the decimated corpse of Bioware...
Are we really trying to imply Mass Effect is as iconic as Final Fantasy 7?
To me yes. You'll see the Mass Effect trilogy on any best games list. Ground breaking in every way and genre creating and genre defining. It will make top 10 lists and be in history forever. RPG's changed because of these games along with various other Bioware games. FF games not so much history making. Iconic in many ways but not defining.
It should be split into 3 parts that take 15-plus years to develop? Who would want that?
Sure if it wants to be just as divisive as FF7 R was for a lot of people.
I never played the original, but you can't say give the ff7 treatment.. Ff7 is what generations old? While mass effect 1 is what 13 years old? Give it another generation or 2 and then create a remake via VR!! That would be Holy shizzle mouth watering.
Groan another “treatment” article
I'd love a re-release of any kind, but I would love for it to be all three games. It could just be some lazy, upscaled ports and I'd appreciate it. I do have the nice set on PS3, but I'd love to have it on a system I currently use. I do dust off my PS3 occasionally for retro gaming, and when I want to play Tokyo Jungle, but it's remarkable how much I prefer my PS4, and I'm sure I'll soon come to prefer my PS5.
Lets put the ME Trilogy release from PS3 on PSNow and leave it at that.
It's not old enough for a remake. A 4k/60 fps hdr remaster would suffice tbh.
Nice idea ! and by the way change the combat to point and clic...
So. Let me get this right. Lets timeline this on a SE level. *** 2020: Tech demo surfaces of Mass Effect using the UE5 engine on PS5. Rumors emerge 2025: CEO of EA surveys via Twitter what the fans of the game would want in a remake. 2030: Official announcement trailer of the game. 2035: Mass Effect Trilogy: Remake releases to much divisiveness What is in Mass Effect Trilogy: Remake **A "Reimagined" storyline where the reapers time travelled to the past before Shepard defeated them and attempt to interfere in the rise of Shepard. **Massive amounts of filler fetch quests on planets such as gather minerals, and lost cats that somehow made the trip to colonize a planet. **GAAS integration 200% where any game mechanic requires instore purchases to progress. Any character progression or weapon purchases are done via the in game store. **Minor characters have more screen time than the actual main cast. Side quests completely dedicated to exploring **Introduction of characters and boss fights that never existed in the original game. **The reapers show up earlier in the game instead of being a plot twist to the ending. **Minigames galore to spend time on. **Transition to FPS type gameplay because why not In the end, a complete and utter bastardization of the game for a new generation of buyers. All in order to milk sales from a younger generation that completely fail to identify with the one that made the original games as big as they were, and worked to bring the remakes to light. Is that about right? Do we want EA to touch this, really want them to? Do we want a supposed remake (or blur the lines to a soft reboot instead) of a game that, in the end, will be nothing near what the OG versions were? Do we want Bioware's C team to touch this or even consult on this? Did we not learn a damn thing from ME: Andromeda? Anyone today that wants this will be 1-2 generations seperated form whenever it releases your tastes today will not be what they are 5-10-15 years from now. Just let the game die in peace. Let us not ressurect it into some grotesque version of something a newer, even more ritalin addled generation would identify with.
And throw Mass effect 3 story to the garbage bin, and write it from scratch, including the stupid ending.
Maybe if someone bought ea.
We haven’t even gotten to the point where 7th gen games can get remakes
Knowing the new Bioware after the original team left they would screw up the remake especially with EA hovering around like a vultures on a dead body. Personally I would like to see the whole trilogy over just one game being remade and I hope they bring back the original Bioware team to work on that remake. Damn EA just ruins everything they touch whether game studios or games.
I'd kill for a game that just takes place in the Citadel , GTA style.
I'm just hoping this ME trilogy remake/remaster rumor is true....I would love to play ME on PS5 or Series X.
