Mass Effect 2

Well, here's the first bit of info for Mass Effect 2.

If this is to be believed, I think we'll be seeing a much closer look at the Geth and how they are made.

Thoughts?

Cool. If it's true, I didn't much like "him/her" anyway. >_>

Explains why there is a new patch in the works for the first game, or at least they are saying there is a patch in the works

This looks awesome but Im a little confused is the Geth in the clip holding Shepards "body" or is it wearing his armor? It looked like the N7 marker was on the Geth itself.

I'm guessing the Geth transformed Shepard and either you play as the newly transformed Shepard or he'll be the final boss.

Although, maybe you don't play as Shepard and you have to search for him and what happened to him.

They always have to switch it around somehow. Seriously, you can't have an RPG when you've already unlocked everything.

Well, you could, but I've never seen it happen.

Machine was wearing shepherd's armor. Did the world look like Noveria to anyone else?

Fuck that, I liked Sheppard. I would rather play as him then a new character. I hope it's not like KOTOR to KOTOR 2. The Exile was alright but nowhere near as cool as Revan was.

If Shepard could survive everything he did in the first game then I don't think anything short of a Reaver could kill him and especially not some Geth. I'm calling BS on Shepard dieing.

Well the armor is only special forces for humans... maybe Earth was attacked by the Geth? Shepherd's KIA status is too throw them off while he's on his ultra top secret mission.

Yeah they wouldn't kill Shep. Figure they captured a geth and reprogrammed it.

Well the Cerberus group will probably be playing a major role in the next game, maybe they've moved on from bio experiments to Geth? Geth/human hybreds?

I doubt Shep died. According to Bioware you play through the trilogy as Shep can't do that if he/she is dead.

Kalas: O_O Forgot all about Cerberus. Maybe, yeah.

Doubt they would kill Shepard, But turn him into a Human/Geth hybrid via Quake/Doom/Resistance methods they just might do. Would be kind of epic if you where a Tech specialist in the last game.


Quote:
Mass Effect was originally conceived as a trilogy, but EA has confirmed that Mass Effect "will be a franchise for [EA] for a very long time" indicating that the franchise may extend beyond the planned trilogy.[89] The next title in the series, tentatively titled Mass Effect 2, plans to use much of the same game mechanics as the first title in the series. Not much is known yet about Mass Effect 2 – Casey Hudson, Project Director for BioWare, has said that players should keep their Mass Effect save-files, because decisions made by the player in the first game will continue to have influences on their character in the sequel. Players who have not played the first Mass Effect will start a new character in Mass Effect 2, and will be brought up to speed on the story elements that have taken place thus far in the series.[90] BioWare announced that they will reveal level design for the sequel at the upcoming GDC.

It has also been recently announced that the sequel should be hitting shelves sometime between January and March 2010.

A Teaser Trailer for Mass Effect 2 was released by Bioware on February 20, 2009[91]

This looks to be a turnout to an awesome game which I am definitely going to play. And I won't mind so much playing as someone other than Shepard, it'll most likely be a good thing.

I played through it and bought an Xbox for it awhile back.. You know, when they said there was no chance in hell for a PC version. Then EA bought them, lol. I've forgotten about the story enough that I should be able to play it again soon, yay me.

New Trailer!!
Developer comments video.
Demo and more developer comments.
Official site.

More Mass Effect story, new alien races, very heavy weapons, explodable, cripplable limbs. And finally an answer to why Bioware doesn't do sequels, they'd destroy the industry, no one would want to play anything else.

I am still fucking pissed that we haven't received any real information about the patch for MEPC. The one they said was "coming soon" 5 months ago.

Mass Effect 2 looks fucking awesome.

That beeping noise just annoys me in one of those videos...

From the looks of it, we aren't going to see much from the Geth compared to ME1. LOKI mechs are probably Cerberus and the ship that attacks the Normandy in the trailer is probably theirs as well.

Official site reveals you are teaming up with Cerberus... so no.

Looks like a very cool game, the company makes some very quality stuff. I'm looking forward to Dragon Age as well.
