    It was great getting to talk with BioWare about the care they put into this update to the Mass Effect series. Will you be picking up Mass Effect Legendary Edition this May? I know I will be. -Destin

      It's not as if the current Bioware has the talent to make new games anyway, even their remaster is subpar at best.

    Did they fix the ending? Because that’s by far the biggest problem with the series.

    They supposed to leave Mako alone as it was tho xD All fun was about not being able to control it XDDD

    Of course, the REAL question is: do we actually get a Tali face reveal scene, or are they going to stick with that stock photo on the side table nonsense?

    What about helmets and armors for party members? In Mass Effect 2 you cant really change anything about them.

    So they removed weapon restrictions for certain classes completely...? That seems odd.

    The graphical improvements are pretty minor. Disappointing.

    The branched conversations were 98 % illusion of choice. The developers even admitted to this. Only a few key conversation choices had any real impact on the outcome and story line.

    This looks so promising. Mass effect for me hooked on this game style and it'll be great to relive the experience

    You could have patched Andromeda and finally leleased the promised DLC´s.

  • TheRockFanNumber1

    What a lazy remaster

  • xxDuo

    I’ve already played through these games before. I’m not wasting money on remakes/ remasters.

  • FunteX

    In no way worth a replay, just for this very minor graphical upgrade . . . FACT stated, stands, and this release is forgotten . . . . =P

  • Stuart Lutes
    Stuart Lutes

    These visual overhauls rarely impress, unfortunately. The crisper graphics only serve to make the environments look more sparse. The visual tricks employed in the originals suited the limitations of the hardware at the time. The lower framerate, the film grain, the lighting bloom gave the old games their own beautiful film aesthetic which really transported you to another time and place. This next-gen sheen on old-gen geometry may be technically better but it doesn't MAKE it better and usually serves to sanitise the soul of the originals. Better character face models, load times and glitch fixes are welcome, however.

    So just post processing effects and some lighting changes. Ok

    1:19 "there are no longer class specific weapon restrictions" that is literally how ME1 has always worked. Well done doing zero research

    So games are pretty much like movies nowadays... devoid of ideas, relying on old ip’s , remasters, remakes and sequels.. give us something new ffs

    I'm more curious on whether ME1 is still so difficult to aim. Does it still shake, or more like ME2&3 now.

    • WackoJuMey

      They adjusted the aim for ME1, weapon sway is much lower (especially on snipers) and the bullet spread in long bursts has been reduced. Cooldown from overheating has been reduced as well.

  • Selvokaz

    Boosting in the mako does not look like you're going any faster.

    just from hearing the mass effect 1 theme i'm already happy

  • GWS

    A lot of the problem with the original was really bad level design. They didn't discuss condensing the amount of stuff done on the citadel which was basically half the game on the first one. The amount of walking time to get things done or to see the story was such a bore. The wide open levels in the original made a lot of the gameplay dead, including the mostly empty planets (don't let the fight they keep showing you fool you. It's about about half the action you'll ever see on a planet). The grittier and more detailed graphics will help make the planets a little less boring and feel like something other than driving on empty terrain. What they've shown me isn't enough though, but if you're new to the series this might be a great time to see what you missed out on.

    Maybe BioWare should have put some care into Anthem. That’s an idea !!

    i'll only replay the mass effect series if it's released on Nintendo Switch.

  • gypsygib

    Definitely one of the greatest series of all time.

    The only thing that would make this release perfect is new, numerous, emotionally satisfying endings for ME3

    Mass effect 3 was the most polished? Is this man drunk?

    But why are you comparing it to the 360? That's basically cheating. Compare it to a maxed out PC version, and then show me the differences.

    It's fun to think that somewhere there is a guy who's played original trilogy and now he has a son that's going to play remastered

  • veale728

    10:28 only monsters do that to Tali :(

  • CybershamanX

    No talk of the missing Pinnacle Station DLC the source code was corrupted? (Which is also the reason why it didn't make it into the PS3 version.) I'm not upset about it missing from the game, but you should have at least mentioned it just in case there are others who don't know and expect it to be included. Just saying'! ;)

    This needed to be a remake. If Square Enix was able to nail it with FF7, so was BioWare. Lazy bums, not even capable of a full remaster, leaving out the MP. This looks pretty much just a texture pack.

      they didn't get time from ea to do it

  • Burning bronze

    still not fixed the ending.

  • matternicuss

    Like most remasters, some things look better and other things look subjectively worse. For example in the original elevator scene, the dark lighting looks more atmospheric, like a noir film, whereas the remaster lighting looks flatter and less artistically pleasing. Remaster FemShep also looks a bit too “plastic”, but we’ll see when it’s released.

  • Jason Dana

    Major question here: Team Mako or Team Hammerhead?

    • jomnix

      Mako, the hammerhead is like a tissue paper

    what about that hideous me3 dress did they fix that

    Do we still have to press the Back button for grenades? That was kinda weird.

  • ShinJen

    Always heard positive things of this game. This will be my first time playing this Trilogy once the remastered comes out!

  • Azwel

    Me1 is the best game in the trilogy only if it didnt have clunky combat. Other than that, looking forward to 5th playthrough.
