??? You lost me on that one Shrike. I don't get it.
Of the three, hands down Zevran is the man! That dude is a trip. I'm straight and I rarely play as females in my RPGs, but it was a lot of fun having him hit on you all the time.
Funny, I play as ladies in mp all the time....actually might prefer their builds in most mp games, but I really can't get into playing them in single player.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but he hits on you if you're a guy, too.

Well, we already know that we'll have a choice between human, elf, dwarf and Qunari and if you anticipate unique endings tailored to those races, times 2 for good/evil, you're at 8 endings. Given that we know we can make choices in the world that affects how regions/factions develop, 40 isn't unfathomable to me.
Already have my PS4. Just need this game. My most anticipated game for the year, followed by The Order 1886.

It's Mass Effect 4 or Final Fantasy XV for me. And I'm thinking Mass Effect 4 is probably going to be the first one out.
Unless of course by some odd twist Mass Effect 4 is cross-gen.
According to the information from Rocket Chainsaw, ME4 is "next" gen only. Lucky for me I already have the PS4, so now I just have to wait for the games to come to me. Dragon Age and Mass Effect with remote play in bed. Oh yes.
Here's the link: http://www.rocketcha...s-effect-40991/
- Mass Effect 4 is not called “Mass Effect 4″, but Mass Effect: Subtitle. Representatives at BioWare have implied as much, but we’ve been told that indeed Montreal’s Mass Effect does not use the title Mass Effect 4. It is currently operating under a subtitle name, which intends to carry across to the commercial build. The subtitle will embody the game’s major themes.
- Mass Effect 4 is third person. This might seem obvious, but we’ve included it more as an interesting titbit on the development process. BioWare has, in the past, experimented with different camera perspectives for all three of the mainline Mass Effect trilogy games, not always locking in “third person” from the very beginning. While they’ve too experimented with Mass Effect 4, the decision has been made to play in third person similarly to the original trilogy.
- Multiplayer returns. A no brainer. We’ve been told that Mass Effect 3‘s multiplayer was a surprising success for EA, internal buzz very positive. Multiplayer is locked in to return for Mass Effect 4. We’re unable to verify if the mode has changed, or if it’s a similar co-op arena mode to Mass Effect 3.
- Exploration is a major theme. Here’s a good one: Mass Effect 4 will focus on many things, but “exploration” is apparently the core focus of both the gameplay and the narrative. This is a core theme that is driving the overall design and direction of the new series at Montreal.
- New races will appear. Yep, we’ve got confirmation that this game will not be restricted to the usual Human, Asari, Turian, and so on. Tied in with the prior point, Mass Effect 4 will introduce new species (multiple!) that play major roles in narrative and overall direction. Other species do return, though we’re unable to confirm if any have been removed or downscaled in significance.
- Sequel to the trilogy is likely. Unfortunately our sources would not confirm exactly when Mass Effect 4 takes place in the canon. That being said, we were stressed that all signs point to this being a forward moving continuation of the franchise. As BioWare has said many times before, we’ve also been told that all things “Commander Shepard trilogy” will not be continued in this game; the trilogy is over, and this is something new. That being said, the implication is that this narrative is set canonically post-Mass Effect 3. What does this mean for the multiple endings? We don’t know. Oddly, we’ve been told that “flashback” like sequences to franchise/lore canonical events are not out of the question.
- Nextgen focus. Some are worried that like Dragon Age: Inquisition Montreal’s Mass Effect 4 would be a cross generation title. This is untrue. At time of writing, Mass Effect 4 is being built on Frostbite 3 exclusively for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. This is being done in order for the core design to flourish on next generation hardware, and not be held back by previous generation limitations. While this does not rule out a rough last generation downport later on, we’ve been told there is currently no intention to do so. Mass Effect 4 is fully “nextgen”.
- PAX leak unconfirmed, but likely. We couldn’t help ourselves. Talking with sources, we had to ask about the reputed PAX leak, which claimed Mass Effect 4 would feature a focus on exploring new worlds, two new species, deep customisation, and so on, was the words of a madman or a legitimate leak. Our sources were coy and refused to commit one way or the other, but did emphasise that the leak seemed “believable”. Take that however you wish.

Yeah I'm all for the Witcher 3 but I don't want to have to choose. That game is gonna be equally amazing.
It really is better for both games. CDPR did both Bioware and themselves a favor. Arguably, I think TW3 would have sold better but I think both will sell more overall because of this move.

Man that Frostbite engine looks gorgeous. Hard to wonder how inferior it'll look with newer 3D engines down the line in the future.
Well, Frostbite is going to be an engine that's constantly updated. Since they do a Battlefield release pretty much every year, I think we can expect yearly updates of the engine. Since they use it EA-wide, I think they can justify constant updates like that. They've dropped the numbering scheme and it's not available to outside studios, so they don't need strongly defined "releases" to provide stability for outside developers.
