Mass Effect


Recommended Posts

I enjoyed Mass Effect and I am not a huge SciFi nerd. I'm looking foraward to Mass Effect 2. not as much as Bioshock 2.

Mass Effect 2 is going to be a must buy for me. It's really the only thing I'm looking forward to this year.

You gotta be a sci-fi buff to appreciate Mass Effect.

Not correct. Sure its Sci Fi, but the main appeal is not the content of the story, but the underlining concepts, and just as importantly, the interactions. The dialog actually feels realistic in terms of content, or rather, what characters talk about does not feel cheap or drawn out. No real nonsense. Feels quite realistic. But also the chosen responses within the dialog feels right too.

Um... FFXIII?!?!

 

Well Mass Effect is a great game. Just what you would expect from a Bio Ware game... But DO NOT DOWN LOAD IT!!! You can pick it up at EB for $13. As for naysayers, thats on them, but if you like RPG's and are an adult... this has no child like rhetoric. No coming of age undertone bullshit. Its not some girl like boy around 17 whining about whatever... (Most JRPG's) The game is indeed adult. Im not even referring to the sex scenes. The tone is mature.

 

As for the graphics, like Cinder said, the game looks fine. Its a lack of graphical flare that I think is being viewed. Games like FF look fantastic, but the design of everything is abit over the top. Im not complaining, I love FF (except 9) but one has to admit, everything, even down to the smallest detail seems somewhat over produced. Tons of flare, on things that dont need it... if you follow. Mass Effect looks more realistic in this respect.

 

So in these two respects, the game does indeed feel more realistic. Natural feeling dialog and surroundings. My only complaint is the reuse of "dungeons" Or rather, the various interiors of buildings are reused very often, but with rearranged obstacles. I.E. crates etc. Oh... and perhaps the drawn out driving around planets... not as cool as it sounds.

 

For $13 the game is a steal. I have only gone through the game once (soooo many games to play) but if you want a game that takes itself, and your intelligence seriously, get it.

im soo hooked on this game, im currently on my New Game + and after that one i plan on playing it again as a female Biotic, Each time i always treat ashley like shit because she's not as hot as Liara (Alien snatch FTW!!!)

 

once i have some spare cash again i totally plan on getting ME2!

 

does anyone have any great weapon upgrade setups? so far my fav is the pistol with Frictionless Materials VIII+Kinetic Coil VII+Inferno Rounds IX, powerful shots, barely ever overheats, and that kick ass buffy/blade incineration effect once enemies die

Can't recall what i used. I just put the best materials ever on Shepard.

 

And yes, i create male and female character too :D For female, you can see extra scene for some girl-girl actions (like the one where you meet the high-end escort)

 

If this come to PS3, i will gladly purchase this game again :(
