BioWare responds to Mass Effect 3 ending furore

VicViper

6 years ago

I came away from it kinda numb/disappointed with a feeling of well that was that I guess, I'll be the first to admit I'm a fan of the universe, I wear that on my sleeve (Literally, I have the N7 Hoodie) I am the kind of fan people hate I bought the T-Shirt and the art book and the Normandy model, total super fan but now I will hesitate when I think about getting another Mass Effect game.

Regardless of weather they make another ending, they don't have to I can accept that that ending is the ending just as I accepted that Micheal Bays Transformer movies are the best we'll get regarding that franchise and there will never be anything of the Animated movie's quality again, the fact that I now think that about the franchise is kinda depressing in a first world problem way.

Maybe they have something awesome planned which will totally get my back fully on board again, the universe is still pretty awesome, I can hope. And to slightly diffuse any heaviness from above video Games Eh?

Kingdoms of Amalur online pass hides 7 single player quests

VicViper

Well that's a bit fucked, I thought the online pass was just that for the online stuff, not that I planning to get it anyway the demo was a bit meh.

You can't call it an online pass then block of the off line bits that called lying.

Just call it the anti-pre-owned-we-want-full-price-off-you-so-buy-it-new pass and be done with it.

I went into sc:conviction expecting the Jason Bourne like game they showed in the trailers and had blast, in this case though I would be a bit more reassured if the shows the stealthy bits more.

Still the engine looks great and I'm up for more 47 and the trailers make it look cool and so does what has been written, can't wait to play it.

@superfurry it's no just they do seem very one sided, also why anyone wouldn't take the upgraded demons talent makes that levels choice seem redundant.

@the_inchworm your right about the lack of community, the cross server dungeon finder has meant you never really get to know the people of your server, it's all very straight to business and impersonal now.

Haven't /played in a while, might be around a 90-100 days plus what ever time I put into alts, barely play it at all now with Skyrim and some of the recent console release also with star trek going F2P I'll have even less reason to go back.

DoDonPachi Resurrection: Deluxe Edition Review

VicViper

7 years ago

Welp after a few runs, balls to the hammer hard but exactly what I wanted, I saw the dlc menu option but didn't enter it but now that I know there is a black label etc to get I'm off to buy it.

Any chance that we'll get more Cave games is more than enough reason to throw a little extra cash their way.

Might encourage Treasure too as I wouldn't say no to Gradius V as a arcade release or someone get Irem to fire R-Type Final up there.

oh and Espgaluda 2 please next if you don't mind.

Ah OK I know there was a Brewmaster in one of the RTS games but not about the pnp RPG stuff. pity Brewmaster isn't a class you could play now that I think about it.

So I'm guessing we'll be lvl 100 by the time we get to punch Sargeras in face and kick his titan ass.

I feel slightly disappointed, I thought that we might at least take the fight to the burning legion or something more impact full than another hidden bunch of zones.

I just don't have the nostalgia for the Pandarens I guess as I never played much of the Warcraft RTS games. Hopefully they give out some info that sells me on it.

EA details Mass Effect 3 Online Pass

VicViper

7 years ago

@Immediadress
Well if they're flat out lying/mid leading to us that's going to be pretty bad I would hope that's not the case. Mass effect has been a shooter though looking back the Rpg elements weren't that elaborate and they are bringing back the weapons mods in this one.

Calm down people, first off its been repeated numerous times that the affect that the MP has on the single player is an optional one you can still achieve this via the single player quests whatever and still get the best ending without ever going into the MP.

Pretty much every EA game in recent months has had the online pass so is this such a huge surprise? people weren't expecting this really?

Personally if I get to run with a four Korgan crew co-op style with my friends I'm thinking I might have a lot of fun, just saying, maybe the the MP will be awesome. Mass Effect has been one of the best game series in a long time getting better with each one, I'm giving Bioware the benefit of the doubt with this one. I need to see how my Shepherd's story ends.

The World Ends With You sequel hinted at

VicViper

Hopefully a sequel if it still uses two screens would be playable on all DS's, I don't desalt want to buy a 3DS. The original was brilliant always had a jet set radio vibe with the music and the character designs. A JRPG that wasn't about the swords and elfs for once.

Maybe they find a forerunner or alien repilcator or something and it's Cortana's design, she probably had the designs of the precious gear and plenty of time while Master chief was frozen to come up with a new design, maybe that's how they spin it.

Luckily i had some points with GAME so this is coming to me for about twenty quid, no Kinect yet though, might grab that in a month or two but I love Rez and still play the XBLA version from time to time so a 'sequel' for it is a instabuy.

I look at this as more of a shoot em up after you get your first experience through it as then its all about that perfect run like Rez oddly enough.

Mass Effect 3

VicViper

7 years ago

I'll be honest I don't miss none of the Rpg elements from ME1 that were removed such having to switch between tungsten to shredder ammo and back again every time a fight started or scroll through hundreds of suit mods and amour ( which often was sorted badly, really a human can't wear krogan armour why is it in my humans list? ). I thought ME2 was better as mass effect has always been a Rpg shooter it just wasn't a very good shooter in ME1.

Unless they remove the ME2 power, armour and weapon choices then I can see where we could complain but I really want to take my Shepard to the end of his story. They say their adding mire RPG stuff but that does sell well as demos during a trade show

@erp
I was working on a link but it's awkward to do on an iPhone, there looks to be destructible environments based on how a missile takes out one of miamis skyscrapers so it's either alternate but really close earth or Tom Clancy style near future.

I guess that means no superweapon or ridiculus big ass planes this time.

Having just beaten the first one recently I have to say it's a little empty and flat even with the general Tom Clancy world links which I actual like.

Still maybe I'll give it a go anyway

Saturn games on PSN/XBLA?

VicViper

8 years ago

@Cappy

I had thought about that when I read that reason that they weren't ports earlier, even with just the source code there might be still a bit of work as I'm guessing you do code in how you want game to use the systems audio and graphics channels/processors but maybe not as much work as I was thinking it might need.
1 0

VicViper

I thought they said that the chip architecture was so weird on the saturn that it made porting the games nigh on impossible due to the way the games had to be programmed for it? Guess money is a great motivator.

I can't think anything bar the Panzer dragoon games that were good enough to be ported that haven't already shown up. Wii got some of the House of the dead games, virtua cop has shown up...

Edit wait never mind, Sega... I want a port of Burning Rangers and Croc: legend of the Gobbos, Firestrom: Thunderhawk 2. I owned all of these back in the day and still have a copy of Discworld 2: Morality bites kicking around.
