Argh. I was going to hold out against the next gen as long as possible, but if Uncharted 4 and Mass Effect 4 both get announced at the VGAs, I am done. DONE.

Between the 14th event and VGA, we'll hear from at least either SSM or ND about something new, I'd bet.

In both of those cases, you'd still likely have next year into 2015 before you had to have a PS4 or XB1.

If it's early 2014, it's likely to be a rush job like Dragon Age 2 was.

 

If it's late 2014, then they should have some time to polish it up correctly and make it a good title.  Hopefully.

 

Either way, it should be PS3/PS4/360/XB1 if it launches in the late 2014 timeframe, though since it's a new story arc that doesn't tie to the previous trilogy, then it could be PS3/PS4/360/XB1 regardless.  Wii U as well, though not sure why at this point.

I'd rather it be next gen so I can stop swapping disks.

So a few of us played a little N7 multiplayer celebration yesterday. Even after I said it doesn't matter what I unlock now because I haven't touched ME3's multiplayer in months I unlocked the Volus Engineer. Haha his wittle roll is adorable.

Yeah it was a good time getting the old crew back together. It amazes me how ME3 MP stays so fun after all this time. I was hoping to unlock the N7 banner last night too, I have one promotion to go and my adepts are at level 18. But I had to get to bed! It was already a "bad decision Thursday" lol!

Good read.

 

 

“I was watching a playthrough of a super-renegade player doing Tali’s loyalty mission. He was about to finish the trial, and after all his renegade decisions, I really didn’t want to watch him break Tali’s heart. Then he pauses the playthrough, goes to the chat box, and says, ‘I don’t know what to do, guys. I don’t wanna hurt Tali.’

 

There's this series in a nutshell, right there.

I'd have to agree with that blog post being a good read.  Another case where their imagination of how it would all go down eclipsed making it happen.

 

I think also when I did my renegade playthrough on ME2, I couldn't do the same thing to Tali, since I knew her loyalty would help later in ME3 with the Quarians and the geth.

Thanks for the heads up Shrike.  It went down to $29 and is on the waitlist.  I don't know.  Risk doesn't interest me much.  If this were monopoly or battleship or something I'd be all over it.

Great time playing the next Mass Effect game in Montreal. Ambitious. Beautiful. Fresh but recognizable. And fun!

If it was $29, then I don't feel so bad for missing it.  $6 off the regular price wasn't that hot of a deal.

Makes me wonder if ME4 will be X1/PS4 only or X1/X360/PS4/PS3.

Didn't see your post. It'll def be a last gen/next-gen game being under the EA, business model to hit as many customers as possible, umbrella and all.

 

I got the itch again, yeah lol running solo and with randoms in ME3 again. Hit me up if I'm online, I'm working on a few challenges.

Got back into mulitplayer. I switched disks to Halo 4 and noticed my Mass Effect 3's disc has a small crack on the inter circle space. NOooooooooo

Damn CE, even filled down the green DVD case rigid pegs.

Oh no!  That sucks!  I've been eyeing up the ME Trilogy pack for that very reason.  When it comes to this series, having a back-up is a good idea.  For practical purposes like discs' cracking but also from a collectors perspective.  But a very reasonable voice in the back of my head keeps telling me that I'll be buying next-gen digital remasters in a couple years anyway, so why bother owning two (or in ME1's case, three) copies of a game?

Good idea.  I might have to look into that as a "backup" since my ME1, ME2 and ME3 copies are all the CEs.

 

One to play, one to put away? :D

The best deal I've found on the ME Trilogy pack is at Best Buy with the gamer club thing.  My membership transferred over from the previous model they had, meaning, no way in hell am I paying $120 for the privilege of their f'ed up system......anyway.....its base price is $39.99 and with the GCU thing it knocks it down to $31.99.  That's the cheapest I've seen it, but I'm waiting for it to drop a little more or to slip it in with another purchase.  :-$

I think if you renew they still give out the welcome back packages, which include a Buy 2 get 1 free coupon.  So you could find two other games worth picking up and save even more.

These funko pop ME figures are pretty sweet. Now I need my wingman, Garrus. I wish they made Liara or Wrex, but they don't so I guess I'll get Grunt. Because it's a freaking little chubby Krogan!

Lol ChubbyNinja, you and Mass Effect merchandise.

 

On a semi-related note, dude names his daughter after Mass Effect and considering how many dumbasses named their kids after Twilight I'm ok with this.

 

A Father Says His Baby Daughter Was Named For aMass Effect Character


"Tomorrow my daughter is scheduled to be born," wrote a soon-to-be-dad named Adam last night. "Since day 1 her first name was always going to be Tali'Zorah. ... My wife fell in love with the name during our first playthrough of [Mass Effect] many years ago."

"Confused friends and relatives are told 'we wanted a nice Quarian name,'" Adam added, "just because it's funny to see the confusion become worse."

Tali'Zorah, really? Why not Natalie, or Talia, and then they could have called her Tali for short but given her the option of having a normal name too, if that's what she wanted someday. Just my $0.02.

I would imagine she'll just go by Tali. That's actually not a terrible name for a girl. I know a Tally.
