A Mass Effect 3 PSA: Multiplayer Can Affect The Ending

A lot of the Mass Effect 3 reviews are focusing on the bleakness of Bioware's story, and quite a few are shocked at the game's darkness in regard to the choices they made. Some guy called Tom Francis over at whatever the heck PC Gamer is, has figured out exactly why it's even darker than expected, and it's a bit of a dodgy trick that…

Play It Again Mordin: Tweak ME2 Saves For Mass Effect 3

Tomorrow (or Friday in blighted Blighty) is Mass Effect O'Clock, and the day when we discover whether or not the purported conclusion of Shepherd's adventures can live up to over a year of having enough marketing to make twenty Daikatanas a success fired continually at our exhausted eyes and ears. Which means we have scant hours/days to ensure we get the ME3 we want. I'm…

RPS Asks: Favourites From The Mass Effects?

So I am busy playing through Mass Effect 3 at the moment, with my collected thoughts on the events, happenings, and systems therein to appear on Tuesday. I've been doing a bit of retrospective browsing over the first two games, too, and comparing events in those to the events in the third game. This process led me to wonder this: what has been your favourite…

EA Pulling Mass Effect 3 From GAME

Oof. High-street retailer GAME's troubles are deepening, with reports that Electronic Arts will not be supplying them with games, including Mass Effect 3. Pre-orders the store has already taken for the title will only be refunded in store credit. While both EA and GAME have yet to confirm, the official Mass Effect 3 website has updated informing anyone that has pre-ordered ME3 to reorder the…

All The Mass Effect 3 DLC Costs How Much?

No. Nooo. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo way. Destructoid writer but not X-Files creator Chris Carter (who is probably incredibly bored of that reference) has been doing a bit of maths, which immediately makes him a more capable human being than I am. The purpose of this mathleticism was to collate all the disparate bits of DLC, pre-order bonus, unlocks and whatnot available for the upcoming marketing monolith that…

Thought: Mass Effect’s Day One DLC Explained, Pondered

A cause of occasional, but rather fervent ire of recent times has been day one DLC. Why do people get pissed off? Because times were you'd buy a game, and get a game. Now, the perception is you buy a portion of the game, and are then asked to buy the rest in premium lumps over the next few months. And when one of those…

Flock To It: Mass Effect 3 PC Demo Available

There's a demo of Mass Effect 3 out. And I don't want to play it. The culmination of a years-long series, heavily focused on the story of Shepard versus the Reapers, is something I want to approach fresh and clean, not over-burdened by hints and experience. But that's me - you may want to dive head first into the demo that offers two missions from…

Stop Everything: 40 Minutes Of Mass Effect 3 Video

What better way to set foot into the upcoming week than having me going: "Stop! You there, yes you, wearing the 'I Heart FemShep' shirt and hugging the plushie Thane. No, the guy behind you. Yup, you. Nice neck tattoo. I know you have work, but there's an important thing you have to see over *coughMass* here *coughEffect* and you *cough3* really, really *coughfootage* need…

Masses and Masses Of Mass Effect 3 Trailers

I can't wait for Mass Effect 3. I'm replaying ME2 to make sure I get the perfect starting point. I'm planning to buy the new Mass Effect: Deception novel and go through it making corrections in ANGRY RED PEN. I'm even pitching the official musical version of the story, featuring amazing lyrics like "Spectres don't fear the Reapers. Nor do Garrus, Tali or Thane..." What…

Keep Your Mass Effect 3 Saves. BUT WHY?

BioWare may have mentioned once or twice that Mass Effect 3 is the closing of the trilogy. Now, obviously you'd have to be more naive than a tiny puppy to believe they'd not make any more games in the enormously popular universe, but it did feel reasonably safe to say this would be the last outing for Shepard. But perhaps not, after BioWare's Mike Gamble…

Mass (Voice) Effect 3 Trailer

Words. Words need voices, or they're just stupid, noiseless blobs. For example: what if I were to tell you that you're now reading these words in the voice of Futurama's Professor Farnsworth? Oh my, yes indeed. Bioware have just released a small teaser trailer showing you who is making their blobs into voices for Mass Effect 3. Now I know it's the third game in…

So, Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Looks Explodey

Bioware's white-hot marketing plasma has congealed into a glistening multiplayer combat trailer for Mass Effect 3, which you can see below. In the excitable two-minute sequence, Super-Shep and his surprisingly humanoid alien friends get stuck into a good old clobberin' session. There are quite a few explosions, and the footage is basically designed to show how while one player is shooting the enemy, another can…

Mass Effect 3 Single Player Shows Mars

Not the best quality video, for some reason, but the chaps at Evil Avatar spotted a Bioware trailer showing off Mass Effect 3 single player and talking to developer Mac Walters. I'm not sure if this was the video Bioware intended to release as it seems to cut out at the end there. I'll have a look around and see if there's a fuller version.…

Mass Effect 3 Punches Worldwide Love

Somewhere in a meeting room in EA, a place where heartbeats have been replaced with the papery flap of money being riffled, a meeting took place. “February 12th?” “Dear God, no. That's the day the creator of Peanuts died!” “Okay, how about the 13th, then?” “Excuse me, but did you really just suggest we launch the demo on first day of the The Festival of…

EA Demos To Unlock Items In Other Games

You know, I didn't bat an eyelid at the Mass Effect/Dragon Age pre-order crossover stuff, because it seemed like a random lark within Bioware games. Not so! And not limited to the preemptory pounds, either. EA look like they're going to try the cross-pollinatory approach across a bunch of their other games, too, starting with Mass Effect and Kingdoms Of Amalur demos. We mentioned this…

Mass Effect 3 Has Fat Monsters: PROOF

Anyone who's not looking forward to the conclusion of the Mass Effect trilogy is an idiot. That's the official word given via the parliamentary press secretary for David Cameron, speaking to a field of bees this morning. And if you needed any more proof, there are five new screenshots of the game out today, each emblazoned by BioWare's ludicrously pointless logos, and one of them…

A Lot Less Conversation: ME 3’s MegaWorm

It's going to be Mass Effect trailers from here until March I reckon, at which point we can finally play the game and enjoy the conversation as well as the guns. This new'un resolutely focuses on the latter, or more specifically giant space beasts at war as tiny ManShep legs it around a collapsing cityscape in their wake. Spectacular stuff, but scripted from here to…

Mass Effect 3: Shepard’s Dynamic Stabbing

Bioware have put out a video focusing on Shepard's improved animations in Mass Effect 3, which you can see below. The clip shows off how his reactions when taking cover are more nuanced, and also shows how melee is made a little smoother and more believable with improved animation syncing. It's quite an interesting insight into the little tweaks that the devs are able to…

Look! Mass Effect 3 Combat Skills Videofilm

Here are some details about Mass Effect 3 combat abilities. They've been encapsulated in video form so you don't even have to read anything to find out about the new class-specific powers. However, if you don't want to watch a man enthuse over the contents of the game's special edition you should skip forward to around 1 minute 50 seconds. There's nothing too surprising, with…
