I tried to like Mass Effect but unfortunately all the BioWare fans and their love for fucking aliens put me right off.

It's akin to bestiality in my mind.

Back in November, BioWare announced the Legendary Edition with word that it would feature updated "textures, shaders, models, effects and technical features" as well as all single-player DLC and promotional packs, remastered for 4K Ultra HD.

"Our goal was not to remake or reimagine the original games, but to modernise the experience so that fans and new players can experience the original work in its best possible form," BioWare boss Casey Hudson said at the time.

Ok well here’s hoping

I can’t believe some of you are STILL hung up on ME3’s ending enough to convince others to avoid it altogether 🤣🤣🤣 Such assholishness

ME3 is solely to blame for opening the floodgates to crybaby enthusiast entitlement. WAAAAAAH WE WANT A BETTER ENDING.

Thanks BioWare


Honestly the problems I have with ME3 have nothing to do with how it ended. I actually thought the ending was fine. It was certain moments leading up to it and certain characters or lack of that brought it down for me.

Chobot’s embarrassment of a character fucking sucked too.
People who are still hung on the ending are just sad people. It's fucking time to move on. However, that ending was pretty fucking dog shit though. The DLC improved half of it but the other half still sucks with the god child and dumb Reaper logic.

You can remain completely single in all the games. And really, the romance stuff is like a drop in the ocean for these games. There's a very loud minority that focuses primarily on alien romance. But the characters are great in their own right, whether you bang them or not.

As for the remaster...
If they don't modernize ME1, it's a failure. And they better keep the Mako in there.

I don't understand... Is it a remake? Remaster? For last gen? What am I missing here? Because "this is not a simple remake" makes me think full on remake with gameplay redesing / enhancements etc. But then it is reduced to graphics remaster? Which is nice, but a lot of time has passed, right? For example there is a certain RPG at the moment which will make the ME gameplay feel really outdated.

And why are we excited if this is frostbite, and "new" BioWare?

I mean I am excited but I have a feeling this is a mistake on my side.

I get it. I get it.
I can't wait to buy this game.
Put it on my shelf.
Not have the time to play it.
And watch the Youtube videos on how they compare to the original ones.
And see the fan frustration that certain player wishlists remain unfulfilled.
Ahhh… the joys of adult gaming.

Might I interest you in the Good News I have about the God Emperor of Mankind?


The Emperor is my shield bud.

Sick of all these xeno lovers thinking its 'cool' to bang an oversized turkey and think it's OK just because it talks and calls itself 'Garrus'.

And don't get me started on the one they call 'Tali'.

I want to puke.

Miranda 4 life.

How disgusting! They had sex with virtual aliens in a video game! Oh what sick animals that this world has brought us when gamers can have sex with aliens!

From the lack of info it will probably be a barebones remaster making it barely run on Xbox Series X / S and PS5. We will see, but silence does not bode well for this release.

I'd be there day 1 if ME3 mp was included but now....ehhhhh, no thanks. I really don't need to play this trilogy again and doubt they'll make any substantial improvements to ME1. Would love to be proven wrong though.

I'm currently replaying ME1, don't know if I should stop or just play it again when this releases.

Probably an unpopular opinion, but I hope they update the combat, preferably with the system from Andromeda. While the story and characters were lacklustre the combat was very good.

ME1 combat was garbage and so was the frame rate. They just need to make it as good as ME3's combat and I will be happy. I thought combat in 3 was excellent personally. The animations were a little stiff and not lowering your gun was annoying but overall pretty damn solid.

Y'all really got some wishful thinking going on if you think they're gonna actually update the gameplay in 1. That's a remake, not a remaster, this is gonna be a bunch of ports with a lick of paint.

And I'm with you, it really needed it, I'd buy it in a heartbeat, but this ain't it. Would be very happy to be wrong.

One thing is for sure, after the debacle that was Andromeda, things can only get better, and in the absence of Mass Effect 5, this is a more than welcome re-entry

Mass Effect was my favorite franchise back on the 360/PS3 era! And since I'm a sucker I will probably buy the Legendary edition but I have 0 doubts that this is going to be a cash grab with a nice, newer coat of paint. I really hope I'm wrong and Bioware not only remade ME1 but also added additional content and quests... That's not going to happen is it. :messenger_face_steam:

I think EA and Bioware would have promoted the hell out of this game if that was the case. Imagine ME1 being remade the same way as Demon's Souls was for PS5.

Yeah you're right. we haven't even seen one screenshot and the game is coming out in 2 months or so. That doesn't bode well. It's EA and modern day Bioware, I guess we can't ask for much.
