Mass Effect

Postby Orfinn » Oct 30 2007, 17:13

Ever heard about this game, folks? Its a 3rd person action rpg from the Bioware guys. The geniuses behind KOTOR, Baldurs Gate etc (guess you all knew that alredy=)

For me it looks amazing, enormous and not at least promising.
its this kinda game I in fact have longed for so long. RPG spiced with top-notch action and free roaming in our very own galaxy, the Milkyway!
its to good to be true, I mean, you can visit any place of the galaxy and not only the mission based planets and moons, there are a pletora of uncharted worlds for us to find :D

The graphic is lovely! I just hope there wont be any slowdowns.

Talking about kicking ass in outer space! Mass Effect is the best example IMHO as a Milkyway answer on the GalaxyFarFarAway galaxy, the galaxy where Star Wars is set. ME will be just as huge as KOTOR, no doubt!

Linkys for more info.

...and theres always wikipedia

Im alredy consumed by this game, only drawback..its not coming to any other console or pc at all as far as I know, its an xbox 360 exclusive trilogy. For the last of the 360's years.

Yeah, the trilogy are planned to stretch out of the rest of the years the console have left, as with most other consoles, before new next-gen consoles are released. Estimated life span for Xbox 360 from the day it shipped is 5-6 years.


Hey Ethric, dont get upset. These so-called exclusives may come to PC. Remember Halo? It was said exclusive, but got converted to PC. It may be for Mass Effect to, So dont lose it ;)


And if you have any friends or family members who plays alot and have 360 and want to get ME, pay them a visit :)

Ah, I misinterpreted your statement.

Anyways, I've had the game reserved since it was possible to reserve it. After playing KOTOR, KOTOR2, and Jade Empire, there is no way I'm not picking up Mass Effect.

As to what class I'm going to play, I might for an engineer. Never know when you might need a good hacker.

I played both KOTOR games, awesome both of them (though nr 2 was unfinished) I will surely get my hands on this game too, the 23 nov.

I think I'll go for the Infiltrator, a dual class. I wonder what the 6 unlockable classes are. I cant see how the three different types: Engineering, Biotic and Combat can stretch out over another set of six.

I heard there were only six classes total, with the varients being combinations of the original three. I actually saw the official page dedicated to it, but I can't remember their names.

This looks good, but until it comes to the PC, I'll have to sit and wait. :(

The six starter classes are:

Soldier - Combat
Engineer - Tech
Adept - Biotics
Infiltrator - Combat and Tech
Vanguard - Biotics and Combat
Sentinel - Engineering and Biotic

Now, many ask themself what can be the unlockable 6 other classes.

Did you know there are six distinct character classes in Mass Effect, each with a different package of starting and unlockable talents? In addition, if you play well enough to survive the physical and political dangers of the galaxy, you will gain the ability to unlock six more specialization classes later in the game.

Be forewarned people, at least one copy of the game was sold early so be leery of message boards. I'm avoiding most of them like the plague, especially after having Bioshock ruined for me.

Edit: Btw Worthplaying reports the lesbian alien sex scene in Mass Effect has lead to a banning in Singapore :D
I, for one, am dying to find out what colour they paint Michael's toenails.

I saw one of the scenes. It's not even a sex scene by modern standards.

Beat the game today around 4:00 a.m. Sitting through class is a bit difficult, but I have my priorities.

I strongly recommend this game to anybody who enjoyed Knights of the Old Republic. Everything about the game works, with the small exception of texture pop-ups.

I completed the game as a soldier/shocktrooper who specialized in assault rifles. When you beat the game, you are allowed to go back with the same character with all of your skills on a higher difficulty level. Even better, if you earn certain achievements with various skills, they can be added as a bonus skill to any class. Since I specialized in assault rifles and killed enough people with them, I was able to pick that skill for the biotic character I just created. I think it's quite a nice feature.

It will. Both of the Knights games and Jade Empire did, so it's pretty likely that Mass Effect will be releasted on the PC some day.
