New Mass Effect 3 screens reveal mystery turian

Oh god, where is Garrus?! OK... OK. Let's calm down for a minute. Surely there's a reasonable explanation for this. It's probably just the stand-in palette-swap turian for assholes who imported a save where Garrus was dead. Right? BioWare wouldn't pull another Grunt on us, would they? I mean, we obviously know already that Garrus is in Mass Effect 3, so there's really nothing to worry about. Let's sooth our fears by looking at the other screens...

*Slight ME2 spoilers ahead*

***************************** ****************************** *
It may be Garrus's "friend" you can choose to save or kill during his loyalty mission. Since Bioware did say people will be dead, or alive, depending on your ME2 ending. This guy may replace Garrus if he died in your finale and if you chose to keep him (his friend) alive (or just didn't do Garrus's loyalty mission).

You mean Sidonis? He has purple stripes on the side of his chin while that Turian in the screenshot doesn't seem to have them. But other than that small detail, they're very identical.

Maybe he just got his face fixed and some new armor.

Blacktric4675d ago

Turians don't erase their facepaints though, so it can't be Garrus. Besides, this Turian has much more extensions going out of his head in comparison to Garrus.

Could just be a bystander, not likely though

Lozo4675d ago

hmmm.....looks like that C-Sec guy from the first game (forgot his name).

Beany4675d ago

The texture resolution on the armour seems too low to belong to a major character.

EA Hiring Ex-Military Personnel to Help Build Next Battlefield Game via "Hiring Our Heroes" Program

EA has hired ex-military personnel in order to help shape the next Battlefield game as part of the Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) program.

OtterX19h ago(Edited 19h ago)

Why don't you Hire Your Old Dev Team who brought us the brilliance of Battlefield Bad Company 2 while you're at it. It was more exciting than anything recent in the Battlefield series. It just needs to be updated to reach modern times, but it was so great at its core.

This would be nice but that team has tossed out the finals and has arc raiders on the back burner

20 thousand still play the final's

Why get slapped around by ea when you already have something going on.

What the next battlefield needs is a step back simple functional not a live service and smaller player servers than 2042. Just make it like battlefiled 3 with bad company destruction just something simple

But they already killed off ridgeline games that had ex halo/cod devs so no singleplayer unless they make another dev team for it.

It's what made zipper and slant six awesome. They had military vets working for them, no just as consultants, but as developers as well. I wish Sony never closed them, MAG 2 or an update to MAG and a new socom is much needed.

just_looken6h ago

Older ps3 battlefield titles did the same even went to the range to get sound files.

But all these titles we are talking about were on the ps3 a console so powerful it offered free mp and games did not need 4 levels of payment plans even more crazy was the player size of mag's games.

A return to the golden age of Battlefield seems so far away now

Str8Chaos741h ago

Sadly I think you are correct. They just don’t get it. They will do their live service game with its Battle Royale and fail at both.I hate being so negative, but I have little faith in EA at this point.

There are no "thoughtful" ads in video games, EA

I think the only type of games that can gets away with it would be sport games, having those sponsors ads on the side like on real life.

But don't put freaking Doritos ads in Star Wars or something, it breaks the immersion. If it is a pop-up ads, then big no.

Hofstaderman29d ago

EA can thoughtfully eff themselves.

Makersbreath229d ago

EA coming back for the crown of being perceived as the worst company in gaming.

Chocoburger28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

One of my favorite series is the THPS franchise, and it was packed with ads, but it didn't bother me. Posters for skateboard companies, JEEP, and Nokia phones. It did sort of fit in with the game world, but that was the past, these days ad would be intentionally intrusive or unskippable loading screen type of imagery. Ugh, I know EA would do it in a horrible fashion. Screw them.

Report: Sexual Misconduct Investigation Conducted at EA, Suspects Named and What They Did Revealed

EA senior staff has been investigated for sexual misconduct involving female coworkers, and these said people have been named publicly.

isarai34d ago

Aye just call Phil, i mean he somehow made Bobby Kotick's scandal disappear and gave him a few million dollar high five on the way out.

Cacabunga34d ago

I wonder if it will be censored with some in game ads.

MrBaskerville32d ago (Edited 32d ago )

Microsoft did, Phil Spencer played a minor part. He instigated the buyout that led to Kotick escaping all his controversies while getting a golden handshake.

Someone on Twitter calculated that the people hired in Tango and Arkane Austin could get a decent salary for roughly 17 years for the money Kotick was paid.

InUrFoxHole31d ago

Yeah some thing tells me Kotics $ was already guaranteed before MS made the deal. As for the studios... Let's be honest here... none of those studios made system sellers.

XiNatsuDragnel34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

EA about to go down like Activision and then Phil saves the day saying.this is good for the industry and consolidation will help create competition. /s.

MrBaskerville32d ago

Then they shutdown Codemasters and studio behind Jedi Survivor.

Atleast they could hardly do much damage that EA hadn't allready done. EA has shut down most of their studios by now.
