Since I didn't see any discussions about it here, bottom point, what do you think of Biowares latest project, Mass Effect?

Don't listen to Shiver, he's lying. This doesn't need any links. The topic is perfect just the way it is. I sincerely think this project is looking exciting, and hope it will succeed!

Just a little question Luki:
This freshly exhibited sarcasm of yours, it's a new thing, or was it always there buried deep inside, waiting for the frustration to reach unbarable levels?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_Effect


Why is it going on Xbox 360 only?  Bioware says they have a good relationship with Microsoft, but my guess is they just got payed off by Microsoft, since it's known to pay off third party developers before.  Still, the Xbox 360 looks like a big improvement over the first one, so I will probably be getting one.


The main reason I want to play it is 'cause in many ways it seems like a spiritual successor to Star Control, even if the developers claim to have never played Star control 2...

Unfortunately, that means I'll prob never play this. Microsoft's strong-arm tactics pretty much ensure that a lot of good games will never get played by myself.

Not exactly true. Even though Mass Effect is an Xbox 360 exclusive title now, it probably won't stay like that forever. Look at KOTOR and Jade Empire, both of those were xbox 1 exclusives, and now, they are both on the pc. (Well, Jade isn't on there YET, but coming out on the PC) So don't count Mass Effect out of the PC crowd, it will just be a good wile after the release until it comes out on the PC.

The second. I spend my time looking for work and writing applications. This is just a tad frustrating. Wink

Oh, I feel for you.
A friend of mine went through the same recently. From what I remember he sent almost a hundred aplications, got somewhere around three replies, one was positive.
Thankfully one was enough.

If you wish I can post something stupid every once in a while so you'll have an excuse to vent your frustration Wink

Anyways, hang in there, you'll find a job eventually.

I am very very excited for Mass Effect. The whole exploring uncharted regions of space reminds me a lot of SC2.

Here's to hoping. Still, I suppose that's what you get for finishing school.

Sarcasm is very badly conveyed in a text-only medium, so don't feel bad about it. Or are you being sarcastic? Wink

Nah, I wasn't being sarcastic...now, ARE YOU BEING sarcastic there...oh the never ending paradox! Haha. But yeah, Lore should have added more info to the thread, but he linked to the wiki, so that's enough info now to get the basic jist of mass effect.

It is this sentence from Wikipedia which reminds me of a "Star Control".
