Next Mass Effect Game


Recommended Posts

Not to spoil anything, but it’s definitely better to do Virmire after everything else on your plate.

You don’t HAVE to— some people do it before. Some people even wait to recruit Liara until after Benezia is dead, the story really does allow you do things in any order you want, but it is also definitely designed to work best a certain way.

Virmire is one of those story choke points where things condense down before opening back up again.

That’ll work!   I only tried the streaming once, and since it’s on my own network between 2 computers, I didn’t notice any latency.   Here’s the living room setup with 5.1 surround

Funny enough, the SW Lego games are the only ones where I felt compelled to replay to find all the collectibles. It’s criminal how expensive they are now for as old as they are. I had them on the Wii.

It’s been interesting. Here’s what I have played since I got it— State of Decay 2: This is a lower budget open world zombie survival game that I live despite all it’s flaws. I had played it exten

Agreed - fab to have such a “open world” game and choose your path. Very like their KOTOR games but so much better (story-wise I mean - nothing beats learning to be a Jedi!)

I regret never having played KOTOR. I've tried, but it's just too dated for me to get into. hopefully the rumored remaster happens soon.

What console are you playing it on? I’m thinking about picking it up for my base PS4. I’m a trophy whore, what can I say?

I’m on the PS5 using the PS4 disks. As I say, nothing to compare it to coming in fresh to it (the notorious “yellow light of death” destroyed my PS3 and any hopes of playing it originally), but can’t fault it so far!

Trophies definitely made easier compared to the original lists I have seen (as in there being less need for multiple play through’s).

I’ve played through the entire trilogy on my PS3.

My wife gave me a $500 gift card from Best Buy, along with Demon Souls for Christmas. I gave up trying to find a PS5 and just used the card to get a switch. I guess I could just get it for PS4 and hope that I can find a PS5 by the end of the summer.

It hasn’t been optimised for PS5 or Series X, so I wouldn’t hold out for a next gen console and just play it on PC or PS4.
 

It’s basically the same deal as Cyberpunk where the next gen console releases are just ports of the current gen. Difference though is BioWare have indicated no future update to optimise it. So if you want to make the most of it, play on PC. 
 

Bioware though may come to their senses and optimise it for next gen though, otherwise seems a wasted release.

They wouldn’t be the same teams working on both so no reason they couldn’t update.

But I’m also coming off a lot harsher on them than I mean to. It still looks and plays great on next gen - just not something I’d wait for it to play. Just grab it now.

It is really weird there isn’t optimization for the new Gen. What’s the point of this release then? Buy the games again for slight texture differences? It is no wonder Gaming PC owners laugh at consoles. I have already spent hundreds of hours playing these games on PS4, every possibility. This was sold like the Million Dollar Man intro and as such I was like damn that’ll be neat to see on my eventual Series X.

Disappointed.

It’s a lot more than a slight texture difference and it’s been in the works for a long time. I’m guessing remastering for next gen would find them needing to start over. Keep in mind the IP was kinda dead and doing this was also a way to reinvigorate it for the new game which will be next gen.

Nah it’s still really good on Next gen. I’m playing on Series X and it’s still higher res and higher FPS, but still just a port of the PS4/Xbone version. Though from all accounts so is the PC version since all the tech settings are scaled back. But yeah really baffling to target this on the older gen this late.

Man I hope so too.

KOTOR and KOTOR2 with restored content are legitimately two of my favourite games of all time. Probably right up there with Fallout 2 and Skyrim.
