TGS 2011: Mass Effect 3

Quick rundown:

  • The Squad points system has been overhauled to offer more focused specialization for each power: area of attack vs. focused and powerful
  • Apparently there is no one brave/stupid enough to go up against the Reapers (due apparently to indoctrination), but the return of this “fertile female” to the Krogans means they will join Shepard in the fight.
  • Since no one is currently against the Reapers, that means all the Cerberus troops you fight against are allied WITH them somehow — not too surprising given the end of Mass Effect 2.
  • Liara is totally wearing her Lair of the Shadow Broker outfit! Lazy? Or just continuity?
  • Heat sink packs are still littered about this game. Oh well!
  • Play controls haven’t changed much, but I often find myself rolling out of cover when I just want to stand up. Is there a better button for this?
  • All of the usual biotic powers work the same way as the last two games, so warping the armor of the final piloted Cerberus mech was really no problem.

No, really! I turned to Vinnk after I was done and asked him if he was scared for me facing off against that huge machine.

All too easy.

VERY much looking forward to this in March 2012!

What are your Mass Effect 3 Predictions?

Pretend it’s Wednesday.

Got it? Great!

Now, pretend that everyone who wanted to play Mass Effect 2 on whatever major platform has now had a chance to do so since its release on PS3 “yesterday”. Never mind that the last 24 hours have hardly been enough time to get through a single playthrough, let alone multiple you may need to let the whole story seep into your pores. This author and videographer has (obviously) had significantly more time to digest everything that the first two Mass Effects have had to offer in order to bring you this predictions video!

Keep watching this space for our next KEEP PLAYING video about Mass Effect 2’s many, MANY romance options! And feel free to make your own predictions below.

Mass Effect 3: DESTROY ALL HUMANS

It looks like the Reapers are no longer content to work through third-party agents messing around in the Terminus systems. They’ve on on the offensive by taking over Earth!

So can Shepard get the galaxy to finally unite under the Reaper threat, or will the Council races use this as a perfect excuse to rid themselves of the human “problem” once and for all since the Reapers don’t seem to be interested in anyone else. (As Shepard may remind them: “Yet”.)

What do you think? Leave a comment below!

$20 Game of the Week: Mass Effect 2(Xbox 360, PC)

Note: This is also coming to Playstation 3.
The sequel to 2007’s sci-fi role playing masterpiece, Mass Effect 2 once again raises the bar for RPGs. Set two years after the events of the original Mass Effect, you once again step into the shoes of Commander Shepard as he/she joins the organization Cerberus, an underground organization dedicated to protecting humanity at any cost. An all new alien menace is abducting entire human colonies, so Shepard has been tasked with putting together a team of bad-ass space mercenaries and stopping them. However, stakes are high, and many say that this is a suicide mission.
