During a recent conference call about Mass Effect 2, BioWare CEO Dr. Ray Muzyka stressed the importance of emotional engagement in the game by mentioning the phrase "emotionally engaging" over and over again.
indeed we will :)
I love Dragon Age and I expect Bioware will make another engaging game. Too bad it wont be coming to ps3. Guess I will have to cross my fingers in hopes my pc will run it.
how broke are you, why don't you just buy a 360 and play the damn game? Its 199.99!?!?!
He has one but he could always be using somebody else's gamer tag for N4G.
You sir are hilarious. Keep the attacks coming at anything and everything 360 related lol.
Wow how pathetic, the same ps3 people commenting in every me2 article, how cut up about this game are you, I hear there's an article about valve, go shed a few tears there too, it's cheaper than therapy. enjoy ME2 everyone, it's good to be a gamer.
Because you fools give him attention. If you IGNORE trolls, they go away. Silly. That's why I blocked TheTruth. Otherwise, you're complaining just for the sake of it. Personally, I can't wait to pick this up and really max out my vid card settings. Can't wait to see what she can do.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... They apparently do not realize all of the promises they failed to deliver on the first time. It's a "I'll believe it when I see it" this time. They are bucking to take Dyack's prelaunch bragging award. And some people keep forgetting this is a multiplatform game. Ever consider they could care less if it is on the 360 and are only concerned about the PC version?
With the possibility of Shepard and probably others too actually dying in ME2, I'd imagine it would get pretty emotional. A question for everyone though: Why be pessimistic? Life's more fun when you're optimistic. edit: @above Story's the same on the 360 and pc. So.... what's your point exactly?
just make it fully nude. screw FOX news.
no school after next week.... all im going to do is work and mass effect.... and you know chill wit da homies.... but when they not around ... mass it up
The point is every time something negative is said about ME people assume it is a 360 attack. It isn't. Many people only care about the PC version and critical remarks concerning Bioware's inability to carry through on all of the tall promises they made the first time have nothing to do with the 360. Now Bioware is making another round of promises. People seem to forget how they promised you would be able to explore a vast galaxy only to be cut down to far far less. Enter a solar system and you can read about all of the planets, land on one that has the same ugly low res textures as the last planet, you can explore only a very small sectioon of the planet and that is limited to a small structre that mysteriously has a large underground area. Amazing. They can't build a building on the surface on these planets but they can carve huge areas out of rock. We'll also ignore that ridiclous, impossible to flip, MAKO that would actually sling your guts against the ceiling. By the way, how does the MAKO get back to the ship? After the way in which the first game failed to deliver on Bioware promises many people are calling BS until they actually see delivery this time. Foll me once, shame on you. Fool me twice... DISCLAIMER: The fact that Bioware failed to deliver on so much they promised the first time can only be seen if you open your eyes and don a pair of honesty shades.
@Morganfell There's no point in arguing man. To them it's 360 exclusive even though you can play it on PC. I know, makes no sense, but what can we do? Just sit back and laugh.
Yeah, I guess I get your point. It was kinda disappointing playing the same re-skinned level 50 times. And reading probably a small books worth of different planet yet never being able to go there. But I wouldn't go so far as to say ME1 failed to deliver. It did its job and was pretty good. Not as good as people make it seem. My problems with it were sometimes bad dialogue and frequently bad voice overs. Story was decent I suppose but they were all just standing around lifelessly most of the time. But you can't deny ME2 looks like they trying to fix as many problems ME1 had as they possibly can. Also, anyone ever tell you you're very thorough?
360 owners could careless about a game going to pc as well. It's MS for crying out loud and there's know war going on between 360 and PC users. PC is a more powerful platform period and so long as there's know PS3 version really thats all MS has been trying to prevent. The logic isn't hard to understand seriously.
I'm playing it on my PC now and I just can't stop. In the past week I've abandoned CoD and have put 25 hours into Mass Effect. I purchased it a few weeks ago when it was $10 on steam and I've never been happier with a purchase. I originally passed on Mass Effect when it was first released but I regret that now. Bioware are the RPG masters this generation, I also purchased Dragons Age during the Steam Black Friday sale so I can't wait to boot that up as soon as I finish Mass Effect. If I knew Mass Effect was as good as it is when it was launched, I would have gladly laid down $50 for it (PC). If they improve upon certain aspects of the game, Mass Effect 2 could be a defining game for this generation.
Resevoirdog, Where ME failed to deliver is a poersonal opinion. For me the features on which they missed were key for me. The exploration was one I mentioned. Another area was the dialog system was far divisive as results among choices. I played as a thorough renegade the first time, starting with the choice for Shepherd's birth history which has an affect. Then I went the Paragon route. Two opposite ends of the scale. The result? Very little difference. Even extreme remarks often generated the same response. Not always, but far too often.
I wouldn't doubt them.
This is bioware, characters and story and 2 bioware fundamentals, we already know the gameplay is going to be great, but the story and characters are always guaranteed to be amazing in their games
it's going to be wicked and can't wait to put over 200 hours just like I did ME1.
Haha! I loved that line! Have a bubble :D! I am really excited for ME2. I for one hope that ME2 will be really emotional. I want the game to grab me and drive me to an engaging story that will have me playing this game for years. Without a doubt, ME2 will be the only game I will play in 2010. Any other game will just have to wait.... Thank you BioWare! Happy Gaming! Cheers!! :D
promises a lot this game.
Its already incredibly emotionally engaging well for Ps3 fans at least.
Awesome!!!! My favorite RPG series of this Generation just keeps getting better!!!!! You're awesome Bioware. If you don't have a 360 you should really get this for the PC. It really is a great story.
When i can talk to the AI and they are smart like a human w is then i would get emotion for it, but im not gonna give 2 crap about some AI.
I guess your forte is any game lacking story where you can just run around real fast and kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible.
Droids how this it feel to not play this game on your ps3?
Hey, look! A movie....
You know its going to be emotional. Jesus its Bioware!! I don't recall ever playing a game made by them that was not emotional. There some of the best at telling a story in a game. If not the best! On a side not im hoping that they can top the ending and about the last 30 min of game play from the first Mass Effect. The last 30 min of game play plus the ending was one of my biggest OMG moments in gaming ever!! Such a great game!
get the heck out of here with this bull. the start of star trek the movie was/ will be more emotional and badass then anything in me2. We all know how x360 owners lie about stuff and overhype it. i mean im still remebering all you guys acting like gears was the best looking game ever lol. and you guys saying halo is the coolest thing and story is epic. you were wrong about both. I have never seen a x360 owner once say anything bad about any of there games ever really. alot of you just got into gameing or never played games from previous gens which pretty much make you opininon not matter at all.
You're such a fanboy. I'm sure you've never even given the game a try so instead you just bash it... If you've played it you'd never have spouted the garbage I'm responding to. Mass Effect is amazing, if you really hate the 360 that much get it for the PC, unless you're poor... I was once like you, a devoted PS3 fan, but anymore I can care less. I can afford whatever system and game I want and most multiplatform stuff I buy anymore is for the 360.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the greatest sci-fi story ever.
your short one line comment warrants bubbles. I'm playing through it now for the first time on PC and it really is the best Sci-Fi story I've ever experienced. The game has me mesmerized. I absolutely love it.
More engaging, controversial sex scenes to garner attention? Is that what they mean?
Pretty much as far as I can tell. Bioware along with almost all other developers seem to think that adding sex scenes to a game make it emotionally engaging. Most of these games could actually become emotionally engaging by developing the characters instead of simply saying ok Character A has performed the necessary dialog tree commands and now Character B will have marionette sex with them.
