    I enjoyed the first Mass Effect and loved the Mako although most of the planets were empty and boring.ME1 was a light RPG but all the sequels were watered down after that to appease the FPS crowd when they should have stayed loyal to their original fans.I wanted both sequels to be even bigger and deeper than the first not cut to the bone and shrank in size.If Bioware make another ME game I hope they go back to their roots,but as they are owned by EA I doubt they will.I would like team members that stay or go depending on your actions.Four man teams like Dragon age.A massive Citadel with lifts like before.Mini games.lots of places to visit and see.More dialogue options.No taking sex scenes but romance instead that takes time not that happens straight away like the last game.How about wild animals on planets and ancient cities rivers and forests etc.

    I have mixed feeling towards the Mako, although the idea to customize it sounds nice I wonder exactly how customizable were talking about here. As for Mass Effect in general, there is quite a lot of gruff for the Bioware company after that third game, frankly as endings go it felt forced, but more so than that i'm sorta pissed that they caved and changed because of all the hate they were getting, im not saying that fan input is a bad thing, and its good for a developer to participate with fans to make a game better, but there is the subject of artistic integrity, it was a lousy ending, but it was there lousy ending. As for the future i'm perfectly fine with a ME4, its a good universe similar to Star Wars, where it should go beyond the story of just one character. The most interesting thing is that the trailers hinted towards this being a different time period, either pre or post Shepard, and that there would be returning races along with new ones. This could mean so many things, also the main character model they've shown is human like, but so are the Asari, so this could be an alien race, it would be interesting to see from the point of a different race. The recent change of heart in the Dragon Age series to allow players the choice in race, though completely unrelated, may imply the studio is open to the idea of having player choice for race in the game. All in all i'm still a fan of ME and Bioware in general, and will most likely get ME4, though i do hope its not called ME4, when it comes out.

    Not having anything to do with Shepard is a good first's a complete story, leave it that way given that there's a huge, fleshed-out universe to explore...but I'll reserve judgement until I know more. Bioware's got a lot of work to do before I'll trust them enough to take them at their word.

    I shan't go into my immediate, and not so immediate, opinions on this game but the ME series ended for me with the third entry. It's done now, I enjoyed it, warts and all and it was concluded. Time to do a Bungie and move on (sort of), BioWare.
  • Jackonomics2.0 - July 27, 2014 8:03 p.m.

    At E3 it seems to me that Bioware doesnt actually care for Mass Effect 4 but whatever project they do care about. Which makes it feel like Mass Effect 4 is forced. Meaning its gonna suck big time.
  • N7Spartan95 - July 29, 2014 11:20 a.m.

    I wouldn't go out and say that it's forced, since they seem to be taking an awful lot of time with it. According to the Comic-Con panel, the release is still years away, so we won't get our hands on it until 2016 at the absolute earliest, meaning that they've had AT LEAST 3-4 years to work on and polish this puppy. If it was being forced, EA would just rush it out as soon as possible to make a quick buck and we'd have it already. I guess they learned the dangers of such a policy after Battlefield 4's disaster of a launch. We've seen very little of the actual game thus far, so I'd rather reserve judgement until I've seen actual gameplay for myself. Saying it's going to suck this early on is just being jaded and pessimistic in my opinion. Personally, I prefer to be optimistic about this game's prospects.
  • Jackonomics2.0 - August 1, 2014 10:16 p.m.

    I AM being pessimistic Im guessing they are waiting till they actually feel like making it. They shouldnt have bothered to tell us about it at E3, because it left an impression that they didnt care, when in reality they want to take their time.
  • N7Spartan95 - August 2, 2014 12:27 a.m.

    They aren't waiting to make it, they ARE making it. We've SEEN footage. They're working on it NOW. They just don't want to rush it because they sure as hell don't want to end up in the same position as BF4. They're just not saying much at the moment because it's still in the middle of development. There's really not a lot to talk about. Still, with the anticipation surrounding the title they needed to give SOME kind of status update, so we got what we got. To be honest, I didn't get a "we don't care" vibe at all from E3. More of a "we're working on it, but can't say a lot right now" vibe. If the impression you had was because of anything, it was because Dragon Age: Inquisition was BioWare's star at E3, which is a lot closer to release and something they were actually able to talk about. I'm betting they'll be a lot more excited to talk about the next Mass Effect once it's closer to release and they can actually show off gameplay.

    I'm actually kinda disappointed by this. I was hoping for the game to be set during a different time period, and to be able to play as a different race. That fact that familiar faces will return could be a good thing, but it could also mean that all they're doing with the game is playing it safe.

    Awww........... Humans as playable characters AGAIN? I am disappointed........
  • N7Spartan95 - July 29, 2014 11:08 a.m.

    I think I read that they said it wasn't locked down or something. Meaning there's still time to spam them with emails and DEMAND that they allow us to play as multiple races. I WANT TO BE A TURIAN, DAMN IT!
  • Sinsational - July 27, 2014 2:36 a.m.

    I thought they said we wouldn't be playing a soldier again?....

    The only thing I didn't like about exploring in the Mako was that you usually ended up going to identical structures with the same internal layout. On the one hand if we ever do manage to get find a way off Earth, standardized pre-fabricated structures probably would be widespread, on the other it makes for boring gameplay ;)
  • Shigeruken - July 26, 2014 10:37 p.m.

    I liked exploring in the Mako. Most people don't have the patience for it though I suppose. With a little work this will be great in the next Mass Effect.
