If you have been following all of my comments and posts on the forums, (wich would be kinda creepy) you know that my number 1 most anticipated game pick of this year is Mass Effect, and I know that Im following the typical fanboy rant, but please just take the time to discover the awesomeness of mass effect. So here I bring you ten reasons Mass Effect will blow your mind.
Reason number 10: Its made by Bioware.
If anyone knows how to make quality games its Bioware, they are known for making great games. Knights of the old republic was probably the only rpg that I've played all the way through and it was great the whole time, anyone whose played a Bioware game knows what I'm talking about.
Reason number 9: Asaris are hot!
You all know what im talking about. Im usually not this perverted, but when I was trolling the forums awhile back I saw the tag name "Asaris are hot", I could only nod in agreement. So when you say to yourself "pfft, whats wrong with this guy." look at the image, and like I did, and nod in agreement
Yeah...shes pretty hot.
Reason number 8: The universe is stunning
Now the game takes place in our very own universe, everything piece of scenery and detail around you makes you feel like you're on a planet, an abandoned space ship or a mining facility. Whenever you stop at a new location, you will take a minute to look around and cry. Yeah, its that beautiful.
Yeah...thats pretty hot.
Reason number 7:Roam around and visit uncharted planets
Tired of unravelling the main story? Go take a load off at an uncharted planet and see whats happening there. Try out new armor or weapons, take a scenic drive in your vehicle, or find secrets in the planet.
Reason number 6:Vehicles, do I have to say it again! Vehicles!
When you arrive on a planet you can rove around in your very own customized...buggy thing!! Plus the developers say that you will find more throughout the game!
I dont know the name of this thing yet, but its customizable!
Reason number 5:Customization
You can basically customize everything in Mass Effect. Everything from armor and weapons, your abilities and skills, and even the characters in your party and your very own buggy thing! You can customize your character down to your past, where you were born and what parts of the military you've served in. Pretty sweet.
Reason number 4:A nice dialogue system
This time around you will make choices that effect your characters standing with a person, and now you must make the first decision that comes to mind, and you will get facial reactions that get detailed down to each little difference that makes an expression. If you interrupt them mid speech they will obviously give you a pretty angry response.
bitch what did I tell you! I gave you an order, go do it. Like a total pimp
Reason number 3: An improved morality system.
When it comes to the whole good and evil morality choice systems in games Bioware at the top of the class, however this time its not so clear cut good and evil. You'll make decisions that will effect the entire galaxy (hence the name Mass Effect). You'll face deep moral conflicts that will vanish the clear cut good and evil, this time around. Theres lots of space in between.
Reason number 2: A great story
Mass Effect is one of those games where the universe is so grand and the story is so epic that it has room for a book. Bioware did not dissapoint with KOTOR and they definentely wont this time. They are great storytellers and are good at keeping your attention. Theres even a book out.
when I get this I will read for the first time...In a long time.
Reason number 1: Real time combat!
Bioware has always had the dice rolling thing down, KOTOR was the first step to take that away, but you always knew the dice were rolling in the background. Jade empire was another step with a martial arts combat system, a nice try but not an awesome system. In mass effect its all real time shooting, and now theres many ways to approach a situation, your tech skills can allow you to turn a machine against its owner or u can just blow it up. You can even stop the action and tell your squad certain commands. oh yea. I feel giddy inside.
Mass Effect is my most anticipated title for this year. I cant explain how excited i am for this game, oh wait... I Can! Crazy excited. Thats how excited I am for this game. read
