"All hands on deck" for the next piece of ME3 DLC.

Sam Hulick scoring it? Seth Green back? Voice actors back in the studio? Large writing team (although uh oh, Mac Walters)?

I'm in.


I'm really curious for this. Cautious excitement building...

From what I've been hearing about the Omega DLC (Not bad, but not great. Just kind of average. Have yet to play it myself, but a lot of what people are saying already irritates me), I'm just glad that BioWare Edmonton is doing the next DLC and not BioWare Montreal (who did Omega).

For the unaware, BioWare Edmonton is the MAIN Mass Effect team (i.e. they did the trilogy) and BioWare Montreal is some newbie studio created not too long ago. Yes, they have a couple of people from the original team, but it doesn't make a lick of difference in the end.

so for those who have played Omega so far...would you agree that it seems more like an 800 MSP DLC than a 1200?

The VGA's pretty much sucked overall, but that was the highlight of the night for me. Garrus is so f'ing great. "Son of a ..."

Crying shame ME3 didn't win more awards, but eh, whatever.

They've gotten a lot better though. The highlights were that, Samual Jackson put into various games, and Linkin Park performing live. Trust me, yeah they used to be really bad, I mean really bad.

It's a shame they couldn't somehow work a "We'll bang okay" into that VGA skit.

I finished up Overlord and Arrival today. I enjoyed both of them. The Hammerhead was way better driving then the Mako. Going to start a new Mass Effect 3 game later tonight.

Any chance we'll ever see/hear Hale/Meer's acceptance speech if they had won character of the year? All 5 sets of VO actors had to record an acceptance speech since it was a live vote.

Also over under on Omega being part of a 1-day sale for Holiday? Waiting for it to go on sale plus this next (and final?) DLC before I do a new game plus to do all the DLC in a playthrough.

GS: Now that another Mass Effect game has been announced, why was it decided to not only change studios (Edmonton to Montreal) but also to change game engines? Will we still experience the same style, choices, and action we’ve come to know in Mass Effect games? Does changing engines delay the games release date?

BioWare: While I can’t comment on why it changed studios, fans can expect a similar style of choices and action that they’ve come to know in Mass Effect. Casey Hudson is very much involved in the new Mass Effect game, as well as many from Edmonton. BioWare Montreal is a great studio and they did fantastic with the multiplayer for Mass Effect 3, so fans should know the series is in good hands. The game isn’t far along in development so I can’t comment on specifics because they isn’t any yet, Frostbite 2 is a really good game engine that we are also using on Dragon Age 3. As far as release date, there’s nothing to be announced yet. You’ll hear more about the new Mass Effect game [next year] in 2013.

GS: If you were to give a rough idea on a release window, what would you say?

BioWare: Late 2014 to Mid 2015. I honestly can’t tell you an exact because full development on the game started a month or two ago.

My guess is it changed studios because the Edmonton team is working on a new IP, which they've stated elsewhere. Guess my hopes for Jade Empire 2 are further shelved.

Even though that article really didn't say anything of any substance, it still makes me happy knowing that we will spend more time in this universe. I just hope that the series isn't pushed aside as a 2nd tier property and given half-hearted attention. Montreal HAS done a good job with every aspect of the series they've been involved with and the writing is still coming, or at least being supervised, by the series mainstays. A very good thing.

Speaking of writing on the ME series, does anybody know if they ever fixed that Deception novel? For the heck of it I was trolling Amazon and went to that books page to see if there was any mention of a revision and there wasn't. Didn't they flat-out commit to fixing some of the most glaring mistakes? I could have sworn they did. Not that there was any chance of saving that atrocity.

I know what the new 'threat' to the galaxy will be;
Sowers

They are going to use more space magic to go around and change the endings that Hudson & Walters wrote.

With an increase of homemade cookies, crayon-colored cards, and cartons of Eggnog making their way into the office, it means that the holidays are almost here! It’s been a fantastic year, and there is much rejoicing to partake in, but for now, we’re tired. The time has come to cash in our paid time off and break for a winter vacation.

So, beginning December 21st the BioWare offices will be closed for the holidays. Multiplayer fans, please be aware that there will be no N7 Bounty Weekends for the weekends of December 28th or January 4th. Now before you go replacing the candy in our stockings with coal, we’ve prepared a little something for you as our way of wishing you a happy holiday season!

3 Kits Unlocked (Drell Assassin, Batarian Slasher, and Volus Protector)
All Hazard Maps Available
Two new card packs to help fill out your collections
Thank you for all of your amazing support this year, and especially for playing. We’ll see you in 2013!

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...
