Mass Effect 3
« on: December 11, 2010, 08:21:09 PM »
after Meh pointed out the EA pre-order posting to Mass Effect 3 I went to IGN and saw the article about it. the pre-order posting also gave hints to the storyline for the game:

"Earth is burning. Striking from beyond known space, a race of terrifying machines have begun their destruction of the human race. As Commander Shepard, an Alliance Marine, your only hope for saving mankind is to rally the civilizations of the galaxy and launch one final mission to take back the Earth."

sounds to me it could be like it'll be like story from oblivion or dragon age. i foresee main missions involving the rachni planet and quarian/geth war

EDIT! Official trailer : http://www.gametrailers.com/video/vga-10-mass-effect/708363

looks badass of course!

Nice.  Definitely a pre-order.  Hope it's for 2012.

Batman looks badass too (imo).  Aside from TOR, looking forward to Dragon Age 2, Batman, and Gears 3 in 2011.

As well as the Verizon Iphone.  lol

im gonna be curious how the hell we're supposed to take down a reaper fleet when one reaper raped the citadel. but im sure it'll be some nondirect thing like planting some virus or using the.. what was it.. black hole matter or somethin? whatever tali was talkin about in ME2

also why earth? so far it hasnt really mattered in the ME universe. are the reapers that fascinated (or pissed off) with shephard that they go straight for earth? or maybe cause we fucked up their human reaper they need more. QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS!

Yeah.  Seems a little rushed.  I like ME and am for sure gonna get it, but I hope they tie this up right.

Would be nice to see a ME MMO in a few years.

reminds me of an exchange from thank you for smoking:

Quote
   Nick Naylor: Now, what we need is a smoking role model, a real winner.
    Jeff Megall: Indiana Jones meets Jerry Maguire.
    Nick Naylor: Right, on two packs a day.

    Jeff Megall: Sony has a futuristic sci-fi movie they're looking to make, Message from Sector Six.
    Nick Naylor: Cigarettes in space?
    Jeff Megall: It's the final frontier, Nick.
    Nick Naylor: But wouldn't they blow up in an all-oxygen environment?
    Jeff Megall: [long pause] Probably. But, you know, it's an easy fix. One line of dialogue: "Thank God we created the, you know, whatever device." You ought to make a product to tie in with the movie, such as a new brand of cigarettes.
    Nick Naylor: Sector Sixes?

there's going to be one more DLC pack for Mass Effect 2 before 3 hits. Probably gonna be the mission(s) that bridges the gap between ME2 and ME3. Could be "alliance-themed" in that it's about Ashley/Kaiden and the Alliance/Cerberus relationship

also got my gameinformer in the mail and IGN pretty much covers what they talked about. except a couple tidbits of where ME will go after ME3 (they talked about a ME MMO) and of course the screenshots. one in particular of Ashley Williams and how she looks now. she has the same face from ME1 but long hair and .. it'll take getting used to lol

they also listed some of the confirmed party members, most of which are from ME1 and a completely new guy. i really hope they get most if not all the characters cause ill be pretty mad if the characters i liked from ME2 end up having just cameos

PS: also i suppose if anyone wants to know the story/ending to Arrival just PM me and i can fill you in
