Liked the first, didn't like the 2nd one so nothing they show is going to excite me about this one unfortunately. Modern day Bioware = soso games.

Dead on arrival. Do we really need another waist high cover based shooter (with pathetically shallow "rpg" elements) because i certainly dont. I think i'll just replay ME1 seeing as it was and is the better game. Since bioware where bought out by EA they've really gone down the crapper.

What's wrong with the graphics, seriously. Look at pic 7. The wall and ground textures are good and sharp. Now look at Sheppards armor. It's low-res and looks like something which should be in the actual background (skybox, mountains etc), but not on a character!

The armor textures were always weak in the previous games. Is it so hard to improve them?

My point exactly. What was wrong with the first game ? According to BIoware almost everything so they decided to satisfy GOW fans and kill RPG elements in RPG game. Briliant. I'll play it nonetheless but unlike ME1 wont bother playing it more then once. Gotta rush thru and forget ( same with ME2 ). Bioware is a king of wasted potential.

Bioware are the kings of pandering to ADHD-gamers more like it.

Mass Effect had rather light RPG elements but it ist stila a freaking mammoth RPG as compared too Call of Reaper: Space ops 2. I'm guessing that ME3 will be even worse. How do you stab soemone with a hologram?

That's your question about a sword made out of a high powered laser beam? Not how they make the light go out only a few feet from the hilt or how they power it, but how a hig powered laser could cut things?

Well i mean suspension of belief is important. I find it a bit jarring that suddenly you use your wrist computer thing to stab stuff when it was only used for hacking in the two previous games. Why not just ad bayonettes t the guns or something like that? It just makes no sense to me, in what is otherwise a pretty nicely constructed sci-fi universe.

I mean that's waht bioware are still good at (usually); building worlds with lore that makes them feel interesting and fantastical, without breaking suspension of belief.

Lightsabers are cool and can cut in pretty much anything, dont try to make sense out of why its so long as it is (i sense jokes coming in lol). Its a fictional weapon in a fictional world, let it be.
Commented on 2012-01-04 23:25:08 In reply to Megido
Come on its not that far of a strech, this is very futuristic tech, and i'm sure there will be some blurb on it, in the game that you can read up on to get your explanation lol...

Megido wants to know, also why Shepard can stab people with holograms attached to his hands.
Commented on 2012-01-04 23:27:00
Because it looks badass, end of it!
Commented on 2012-01-04 23:32:38
It'd also be badass if he flew through space on a bionic shark and had a gun that shot napalm-donuts and Warlocks, but aditionaly it'd be quite weird, as is the stab-o-gram.
Commented on 2012-01-04 23:45:06
It's not just a hologram, they call it an omni-tool for a reason ... in ME1, technicians use omni-tools to repair stuff. Anyone ever asked how they did it ? Nope, because ME1 is an "RPG", so it's ok. But ME3 is a "Shooter", so suddenly, it stopped making sense.

You guys .... seriously.

And just to put this fire out with gasoline, I'm sorry to say that ME1 was as much a shooter as ME2, only it had average shooting mechanics and a very cumbersome, bulky interface that made everything look and feel complicated when it shouldn't have.
The "RPG" interpretation of the Mass Effect Franchise revolves around the fact that you play the role of YOUR commander Shepard. You design his/her face, you make decisions for him/her, and you see the consequences they bear from one episode to the next.
When I see those screens, I see an interpretation of the ME universe. It's not my Shepard, and he probably didn't make the choices I made. That's what I'm interested in, and that, to me, is what Role-Playing is all about. Not spreadsheet, but to actually Play a Role.
Even in Pen and Paper RPGs, I tend to favor choices and storytelling over complex systems. Because sheets of paper and dice rolls tend to break people's willing suspension of disbelief.
If the storyteller is good, you wouldn't even need dice. That, to me, is what Mass Effect is trying to achieve. And I personally enjoy every second of it.

ME3 will Rock!!! Nuff said :)
Commented on 2012-01-04 23:55:16
Yeah but part of playing that role is limitations, that you have to make choices about your character, not just max out all the little bars and be awesome at everything. ME just focuses on the insanely binary saint/baby-stomper choices that, in the end, doesn't matter because you just get a "Do you want the good or evil ending, Mr. Shepard?" prompt before watching the final cutscene anyway.

Nah, give me more micro managing, more interesting choices and less binary Good/Evil crap. I mean if Fallout 1/2 and Baldur's Gate ould pull it off, then why not ME? I mean Bioware actually made Baldur's Gate, even if it's hard to believe that to be true anymore.
