Four more for Mass Effect 2

Four more for Mass Effect 2

We managed to find a few images of Mass Effect 2 that haven't been shown here yet. Nothing really special or even new, but well, it's still worth a look if you are really looking forward to the game's release.

They might be some kind of advanced contact lens, giving him a HUD that provides information on what he is looking at.

Waiting for reviews on this. While I liked the first (although it had a LOT of issues) this one looks way too much like a generic shooter to me. I want a Mass Effect RPG, not a Gears of War clone.

WTF??? How you get gears of war clone out of all the media shown so far for ME2 is beyond me. I'd call Uncharted 2 as much a gears of war clone as ME2. Unless you are joking and I compeletly missed it.

The game should be amazing just like everything bioware does. I don't even know if they are capable of making a non-AAA game.

Every preview I have read says the focus in Mass Effect 2 is combat, which doesn't interest me at all.

As for Bioware only making AAA games, did you play Dragon Age? What an ugly, chuggy mess that was. Looked like an Xbox 1 game and played like a PC game from 10 years ago.

come on, it wasn't that bad.

You obviously didn't play it.

No, he obviously didn't play it. Even though it wasn't graphically amazing it was still far more detailed and well done than just about any other RPG so far this generation. Bioware does RPGs right and the overwhelming amount of reviews praising their games seems to be about all the proof I need.

Are they for everyone? no. But no AAA games ever are.

Oh FFS stop trolling. Why would I comment on something I hadn't played? Seriously. why would anyone do that?

Of course I have Dragon Age and spent about a dozen hours on it but never really got into it. It's a very, very ugly game visually, with (PS3 version here) a truly dire frame rate, hideous character models, terrible animation, awful lighting, blurry textures, and abysmal art direction. Add to that the boring combat (I was a mage, which I guess didn't help), boring story, and fiddly menu system and the whole package was a total dud for me.

Oblivion did a similar type of game and world far, FAR better. Clearly Dragon Age was done by BioWare's B team, or maybe C team, as the visual gulf between it and Mass Effect 2 is staggering.

Still, in Dragon Age's favour, at least it was a proper RPG, which Mass Effect 2 doesn't seem to be.

So we've got some rage about the graphics (if you played it on PS3, one would think you would be used to terrible graphics by now) and a vague comment about "boring gameplay".

Yup, you either didn't play it, or missed the whole point. Bioware games have always had so-so graphics, in fact Mass Effect was the first game they ever made that actually had gameplay worth playing the game for. The games live and die on their worlds and their storylines, and if you somehow managed to miss that, then you must have had your eyes closed or never played it at all.

I'm thinking the latter. And you're calling ME a troll.

Ugh @ the senseless bickering.

Anyway, I can't wait for this, replayed the first one last week to get me even more psyched.

Wrapping up the first one soon! Have this baby all paid off

Okay, end of discussion?

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @nostradamus: BioWare talks Mass Effect Andromeda squadmates, cut content and that missing release date: [url] Read 5th answer. (4 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (4 Hours ago)
