MASS EFFECT 4 (and beyond)

Recommended Posts

I am gobsmacked that I'm the first one to think of naming my male character after this space hero.

So, it says that you can go and do multiplayer missions as part of your own single-player campaign, or as part of other people's campaign's (obviously). But does this mean, if the host is sending a crew of 4 (or maybe more?) Krogans, and you join, you get to/ have to play as a Krogan, even if you haven't unlocked any Krogan classes in your own campaign?

I think they would more do it as straight matchmaking - similiar to ME3

So if you choose to do a single player side mission as MP - it just puts you into a room waiting for other players and then you can start (or wait) for however many players and they pick whoever they want to play as.

I think you only select a crew if you are having the AI do it.

AND if it is like the system used in DA:I - you didn't even select the types of characters to use just the approach you wanted to use (Diplomacy or Stealth/Conspiracy or Brute Forces)

Oh, that would be cool - if you join a mission and its stealth style,so everyone picks infiltrators with cloaks, and then you do another one (or the same one again) a day later and it's Assault so you all pick Tank characters. That would be an improvement over the 'ten waves and extract' one way combat (that's still really good) in ME3.

Bwah.  Objective based missions be damned.  That is just something for me to strategize and overthink.

Give me the glorified ME3 shooting gallery any day.

Just for the sake of clarity - in DA:I

When you select one of those - what they call War Table Missions - you pick a style - say "Forces". Then a timer goes and at the end of it you receive your reward. You don't actually play anything.

So I would assume if ME:A is using this - they are doing that with the option to actually play the mission instead of waiting out the timer.

Well, this deal may not only end up in ME:A, it could premier in the remasters of the ME trilogy if today's news feed is to be believed.

That sucked. But maybe 4-person parties? It's unclear if the Asari was an NPC or in your party.

Honestly the only thing out of that is confirming what we all suspected

Trailer coming on N7 Day

I think its nice to see something even if it isn't much. I wasn't expecting big reveals until N7 Day.

It was a man in a videogame, so 50% chance it was Nolan North, 50% Troy Baker.

Ryder family theory confirmed:

Visuals are great! Disappointed that there was no combat gameplay.

So, the ethnicity of my character will determine the ethnicity of my sibling, right? Or do I have to deal with the Fant4stic thing where I am a black man with a badass soulpatch and my sister is an adopted Caucasian woman?

BTW - the internet being the internet

Lots of bitching that the character was male during that video

It was a fucking tech demo.  Seriously?

Well we have one mystery solved.  The boyish looking Asari with the smokey eye makeup we saw in prior videos is a typical member of the species.

Thinking about it, I'm not sure if my feelings have ever been conflicted more about a game then ME:A There is shit I like, but I love Bioware games for the story, and I'm not sure if they have told a great story, start to finish, in one of their games since ME:2. And I just have a feeling whatever big changes they make to the universe are just gonna annoy me.

The family dynamic sounds pretty cool. I'm curious if we will be able to play as both siblings over the course of the game or just focus on one.

100% chance his mentor will be Keith David.

I have no idea what that is as I've never played MGS.
