Best case scenario for me is that the next ME game takes place a long long time after the end of 3. Long enough that anything that happened in that ending has been forgotten and is just legend or something. Kinda like in the shitty google image search winter space picture.
That's the problem with ME3, you never had a real choice before. Save the council? Didn't matter same ending you stop sovereign and save the citadel. Destroy the collector base? Didn't matter same ending you still stop the collectors and kill human protoreaper thing. ME3 its not oh I chose blue, but regardless the reapers die. Its the reapers may die and....I possibly completely change the galaxy forever. The funny thing was people complained their choice didn't matter in ME3 when that was the only time it ever did.
Doubtful, wouldn't mesh with the whole character customisation that you have to do. He already has his own background, story, model, style etc..... plus he was easily my least favourite character in the series next to Jacob. Don't know what they were thinking.
This is what I'm hoping for. I want actual cities to have more life in them. I'd be fine with less planets and systems. From what I'm seeing, though, it sounds like they are going to create a galaxy that is bigger in scale than the original trilogy. I think it will just end feeling more empty.
Well, I know from personal experience that the PS3 versions have some terrible bugs. A PS4 version would hopefully smooth those out. I already own the games on PC, but I prefer console so a remaster would be perfect.
I want to replay the trilogy, but the rumors of an HD Remaster on new consoles is holding me back.
I hate this bullshit. If I'm going to play it again, I want to play the best possible version. I don't want to get halfway through 2 and have them announce a better version. I waited until E3 and it didn't happen, so I feel more comfortable starting, but who knows. I'd have to wait until Winter before I felt for sure that it wasn't coming.
Weird as hell to me that people still want decisions of their to matter in this new story. Let go and be reasonable. They are going to have a few references and so what if it breaks your canon. I want it to be brilliant and sophisticated, not fan service N7 hoodie fest that makes no sense.
So it won't be a prequel. Excellent! I'm just as interested in the multiplayer as the main story of the game as well. Give me Lord High Patriarch Grunt and I'll be as giddy as a school boy. I'd put those feels up with those from when we reunited with Wrex in ME2.
Gosh get over it. If Mass Effect 3 taught you nothing else its that its time for a hard reset. They need to present realistic choices with a loose plan in mind for future games which they can follow through on.
AKA - Don't make a quest about killing a species only for it to survive because the plot demands it and you've got a level built that you can't afford to scrap for 50% of players.
Mass Effect is at its best when it comes to characters, you're decisions should alter perspectives they have of you and little else. You can't have huge world-building implications for two games and then expect the third one to be vastly depending on these. Its not realistic from a design point.
So they will be referencing the trilogy? Interesting. Would like to know about that "nod" they give but I feel it'll probably be in the form of some CG history of what happened in the previous games. I loved the mass effect series but I want Bioware to really prove to me their vision from this game.
