Bioware has revealed that Mass Effect 3 will be shaped by over 1,000 story variations from the first two games in the series.
Nice... this is the game i always find myself falling back on when im bored or in need of a good story. at the moment im on my 4th run through of ME2, and trying to keep my entire team alive this time. Mass Effect 3 is gunna be EPIC
Can't wait to see some Reaper action.
1000 story variations? Now that's an RPG.
Bioware once again proving why mass effect is this gens best new franchise .
on 4th run? damn you are a mass effect addicted creature! i bet you score already with every female character
It's one of those rare games you can just play over and over and never get bored of it. When the trilogy is complete it will be the best game series to have if you're ever trapped on a desert island with only one series lol. You could play it a million ways. I'm a bit disappointed that the inventory system of ME1 isn't returning though. I hope they make it a bit more complex than in ME2.
yeah, I hope they bring a little more RPG elements back to the next game whilst still keeping the 3rd person shooter feel. Scanning planets was less fun than finding items. I loved the mechanics in ME2.
yeah i'd really like to be able to configure my squad properly again. None of this pre-defined shit, let me make them whom i want them to be..
They could leave pre-set load out options for the kids who just want to pick up and go, but leave the deep customization available for those of us who want to put in the time to deck out our squad as we see fit.
My friend recently started playing her second play through of ME2, without having ever played the first one. I, too, have started my first rolling over my old Shepard after completing my second run of the first game. The amount of threads that run into ME2 are staggering, to the point where I feel playing ME2 first makes you miss out on all the little things that were put into place. One of the main things I am excited for is this theme continuing in the third game, 1,000 almost seems too low but then again it's mostly main story/select side mission things that carry over. Hopefully Wrex becomes space president.
I want to see Tali's booty.
Dude I am with you on that. I totally ditched the hot brunette for Tali just to see her face and see her naked but dam you Bioware for not showing any sex in the game - hell even Dragon Age had some nudity in it. Some thing about Tali that turns me on : )
It's because you don't know what she looks like, so you have to resort to using your imagination to fill in those *ahem* physical gaps, which in its own weird way makes her a more enticing prospect. Hence why the reveal will inevitably be a soul-crushing disappointment. 'Cos she'll never be as hot as you imagined her.
I love this series so sad to see the end of this trilogy but will be interesting to see where the go with the next, no doubt the next one will be multi-plat
and whys that?
Very nice ^_^. Seems very promising.
I feel like I should avert my gaze, or bow whilst chanting "I'M NOT WORTHY, I'm NOT WORTHY!" Or maybe you're just very very very very neutral.
The amount of foresight this must have taken is ridiculous, just think of all the storyboards they must have had to do, across three games no less!
I need to replay the ending of ME1 then replay ME2 with that character a bit pissed off like. Hopefully they'll date ME3 then i will have the compunction to get on with it.
I'm really impressed with what they've been doing in terms of story variation and previous game carryover. It's ambitious things like this that make the Mass Effect series amazing. I don't understand how people can like other games (StarCraft 2, Uncharted 2, etc) so much more when they do nothing unique, original or ambitious when compared to some of the things Bioware is doing. It's just damn impressive.
I absolutely cant wait for Mass Effect 3. Any news is fantastic news. @Bioware, Put the music back in Mass Effect 3 as it was in Mass Effect 1. Running through a level with that nice soundtrack made the game great. It will be a "10" rated game with that music reinstated for ME3.
cant wait one the best IP's this generation.
Gotta Catch em all
I've been trying to start a bunch of replays from games from the last few years, and they all got old fast, as someone above said, it's the game you keep going back too.
