CC: Mass Effect 2 has caught the eye of everyone recently. With an average Metacritic score of 96, making it the third best Xbox 360 title in history. But what's next for the series? Mass Effect 3 of course.
It can only be good
Can you imagine it? I mean seriously. Can you imagine it? It's going to be eeeeeeeeeepic.
Part 2 just came out... Why didn't they just Make "Mass Effect: Massivly effective" and have part 2 and 3 in one game? I hate the developers who think they higher the number they put on something the better they think they'll be percived. Final Fantasy is up to what, 13 -- 15 if you count the X2's and online junk. They do that because people are idiots and think since it lasted so long it has to be good... Well, Friday the 13th is still going strong... Doesn't make it good. Halloween, still truckin'... Doesn't make em' good. Harry Potter, anyone? Please... end the number game and follow ups. Bring on the new.
I don't understand what you're mad at, you wanted them to make a spin-off?
So, you'd rather have Bioware spend 6 years making Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3, and package them all as one than have them release in 2-3 year intervals?
That is practically not financially possible. Each product they make must bring in some profit to fund the next project.... ... and yes, the $20-70 they charge for each installment is worth it relative to other games sold. It's as if you are complaining they are making sequels, in which case we would have significantly smaller titles to select from.
Mass Effect was planned as a trilogy from the beginning. It's a tad late to be whining now. :o
Edit: WRONG POST But I will say that is one of the crappiest complaints I've read in a while. "Should have been on the disc" only works for DLC, not y'know, full sequels.
@noglis, Be gone fool, this is about a game that is not on your system, and that you have never played or seen. So for you to say that it doesn't warrant a sequel is insane. The Mass Effect story is one of the greatest Sci-Fi stories ever told, and it goes without saying that the gameplay is amazing, it is a Bioware game.
You poyina heads obviously missed the mark when it came to comprhension. I'll break it down nice and easy for you... I find it personally absurd to be thinking about part 3 so soon after part 2 just came out. Sure you can start production on it, we all know you're going to milk and bleed it dry until it can't be leaked anymore but why not take some time off, evaluate what you did right and wrong and then release info about Mass Effect 3. We all know its coming... We know 4 and 5 and 6 and 7 are on the way too... This is just how Bioware works. They're a one trick pony. But save yourself the absurdity of looking generic and work on the game and not talk about it so much. Naughtydog does wonders when taking off 2 years in between each game... Uncharted 2, GOTY... Can't say the same for Mass Effect 2, which will be long forgotten by 2010's GOTY awards.
Jesus christ, so much fail in such short a time. They planned it as a trilogy from the start, which is why it is different to most sequels, in that the entire story is based around the continuity, name another game where you can tranfer your save game and have completely different endings, and gameplay based on what you did in another game. If like other games they just did a story fit for a 1 off, then all of a sudden went "guess what, the bad guys are back" then it would be wrong. BUT They planned it as a trilogy from the start and to finish it now would leave it unfinished. You also have not played the game you idiot so you cannot comment on the merits of a sequel. It took me 44hrs 39minutes to finish my first playthrough, so they hardly rushed the game out in order to profit. The story arcs ( and there are hundreds all at once ) the level and character design are deeper and more detail than any other game i've played, they went all out, and that they have more to give is amazing, it's a shame you will be out...scratch that, what I meant to say was AHAHAHA
Must be nice to know when you release a game that it will sell enough for a sequel.
Looking forward to it
I'm sure they will meet that challenge.
And because it's Bioware I really think that they can surpass Mass Effect 2 in every way. Really a great developer and still keeping it real for the gamers. Mass Effect 2 is a masterpiece and everyone should enjoy this game.
I fear this game might not be reconized highly enough if it came out closer to Christmas by which I mean VGA's and such... but let's face it do we care? We still get to play this awsome game.
Please put some sort of activity mini games on the Normandy in part 3
im absolutely excited for mass effect 3, right now im playing the crap out of mass effect 2 and i don't see myself stopping, i just hope bioware gets every single thing perfect, graphics, gameplay, exploration, mass effect 2 was a giant leap for man, but mass effect 3 needs to be a giant leap for mankind!
This is getting worse. Mass Effect 2 is not that great than i expect with the hype reviews. I'm so disappointed when i play the game, it's nice and cool story but if i believe the hype reviewers then is my expectation far higher than normal. I play the game first 20 hours then i don't have interest in the game anymore it's so linear for a RPG game, i stick with Risen or Gothic the real RPG game without the linear limitation.
Yeah well have fun playing those then. Thanks for coming.
Yeah you stick with "Risen" you are definitely getting the better experience there.. /sarc
Yeah I agree I think.... lemme try read your post a few more times and get back to ya.
When you say so it must be true. Because your the real idiot ... ah, I mean killer ...
It's not a failure on the reviewers part. If you don't like the game because it's not open world like Risen, it's kinda your fault. Don't buy RPGs that aren't open world if you... don't like RPGs that aren't... open world. All the reviews in the world won't change that.
That's strange because I actually stopped caring about ME2 because we were drowning in hype, and guess what, it exceeded my wildest expectation, even when I was expecting so much. Goes to show what a great game they made, and that the experience is intangible and cannot be conveyed easily with words.
lol i had to read that a couple times before it made any sense.
M$ must be handing out free blowjobs to Bioware. Why else would they continue to develop on such a terrible console. But regardless, the milking begins.
