Mass Effect 3

Recommended Posts

The ending for me didn't make any sense and was a little bit molyneux-esque, ie promised the world and didn't deliver. I went for the blue explosions, but watching the conspiracy theory videos about Shepard being indoctrinated makes me feel that I was wrong (even if they aren't true). It's like the ending to KoToR 2 though, that didn't make any sense either as they had to cut a load of stuff to get it released on time, silly Bioware

Mass Effect Trilogy for the PS3! I can finally see what teh fuss is about - I never wanted to start on ME2!

 

Its like Uncharted in space with someone caller Miranda taking up the bum isnt it?

 

The second one is, and from I hear about Uncharted 3 the third one is equally disappointing. Great series overall though.

Or as long as Microsoft had the exclusivity deal.

 

So if I play as FemShep will I have to sleep with a male version of Miranda or does FemShep have different love interests? I presume I cant make her a great big Space Marine Red Headed Lezzer can I?

So whilst others were looking forward to new 'massive game' Red Dead Redemption, 2 I've been back to replay the Mass Effect series over the last few months - maybe 40-50 hours in each game. Originally got in to it after Alex & Vinny stated playing though this for Mass Alex on GiantBomb and like many others was inspired to play along - I soon found myself playing way past where they were up to, partly to avoid spoilers but also because it's just so damn good.

This is the first time I've been back to play this since finishing ME3 (April 10th 2012 according to this thread). Playing them back to back has been an amazing ride. It's been so long that I'd forgotten the majority of the story, so it was like playing through them as new games and this time I just bought ALL of the DLC so there was plenty of genuinely new stuff too. I used to prefer ME2, but I think the passage of time and playing them together gives a bit more objectivity (we are years past the ending controversy)... so now I think 3 is the best, mainly due to the refined combat and also some of the incredible moments in the game.

I was enjoying each game so much that I tried to do and see as MUCH as possible, not because to hit a completion number but because it's just so fucking good - trying to absorb as much of it as possible. This time I went with a female Shepard and holy cow, Jennifer Hale's performance is incredible. As I came towards finishing 2 and same with 3, I was genuinely feeling sad that this would be the last time for several more years that I'd play this (I know I can play anytime, but realistically). Maybe I'm just a soft shite now I have a kid but I shed a tear on two occasions. 

Endings wise, ultimately I ended up going with Synthesis rather than Control or Destroy. I think I went with destroy originally and wanted to try something different. Synthesis is a genuinely happy ending, resolving the reaper (and synthetics vs organics) problem altogether and doesn't result in lots of death. Also, the changes made improve the ending were definitely good.

So what they hell do I play now? There's nothing really like this... I Iove the futuristic science fiction but not interested in medieval fantasy style. A really nicely improved version of Phantasy Star just came out on the Switch for the cost of a couple of beers so maybe I try that, they made an auto-mapping system and a nuber of other quality of life improvements!

I read our thread yesterday and listened to podcasts at the time. It can only be let down to go so quickly in to even a mediocre game.

I tried to play ME1 on BC, but it was horrible. Nasty framtrate, even worse during firefights.
Would love to do it all again, but time is short for games atm.

I didnt notice anything, was this on standard Bone or an X?

Yeah my games time is severely curtailed. I've been getting the odd session when my 19 month old is asleep in the day, but it's mainly in evening, sometimes until late. Man, I wonder what my 2012 self earlier in this thread would say...

When did you attempt it? When bc launched it was poor, but they fixed it later.

Also, ME1 had a pretty choppy frame rate anyway.

I'm wearing my Mass Effect 3 t shirt. It's one of my I'm home and not leaving the house again today items of clothing.

 

Not that I ever wore it when it was new because it's Mass Effect 3. If it had been 2 I'd have proudly worn it outside the house ;)
