Mass effect 1&2 didnt need multiplayer to me
None of the series needs it. I am curious though. It seems they are going in a new direction here. Still no so sure of the outcome, but totally hopeful. As long as the SP is not touched at all, and no 10000 Kill Online Deathmatch trophy/achievement, I'll be cool I think.
It's all co op. think mass effect horde mode. It's not needed, but it will add 12+ hours to my copy of the game so I do not mind.
AKA we had to so EA can implement an online pass :/
It occurred to me today that this is EXACTLY why there is multiplayer in the game. Right on. 12
Are you stupid or is this a joke? Mass Effect 2 had no online but had an online pass in the sense with the cerberus network?
Well Mass Effect 2 does have EA printed on it... cerberus network / online pass same thing.
You sir, beat me to the exact same comment. Bubbles for thou!
Errrrrrrr they had the cerberus network pass in Mass Effect 2, they're doing it because EA has to shoehorn mp into everything.
i bought this game yesterday on my ps3, and in no way does it need mp, it would take from the experience of deep space travel ect. the same way im playing dark souls offline first because i want that trapped, doomed feling and i want to feel i beat the game on my own.
i played onli mass effect 1 on xbox 360 it was a little flawed but overall a really good game that imo dnt need multiplayer im gonna buy part 2 for my ps3 and wheneva 3 comes out ill get it
Definatly buy ME2, its one of the best games I've ever played.
Translation: EA told us to do it. It'll be rubbish.
The only RPGs that need MP are MMOs, unless it's co-op but even then, Rather have a longer SP than co-op horde-like missions. MP in Mass Effect 3 is a waste of resources. I rather Bioware made anything SP related to MP -even a CG that shows what happened between installments would have been preferable. People will check it out for 10 mins, maybe say, "hey that didn't suck", then go play BF3 or COD or some other MP focused game. SP better be 30-50 hrs first playthrough still.
Don't know why people are complaining about MP in ME3, BioWare already said that they plan on pretty much dumbing down the RPG elements even more so (if possible without taking them out completely) and basically making it a TPS.
