I think Andromeda has shown that wishy washy attempts to divorce the series from the ending of ME3 suck total rear end and if there's ever a new Mass Effect game the writers should have the confidence and intellect to pick an ending or move forward with some combination of the two (excluding Synthesis which everyone knows is terrible).

no, let it die

as much as a part of me would like some kind of reboot of ME But Improved, leave it in the grave. it's where it should have stayed after ME3.

We've got this thing licked!



The problem with any attempt at another Mass Effect game in the near future is it would almost certainly be helmed by Mac Walters (presuming he wasn't shuffled into a constructive-dismissal make-work position with the rest of the non-cherry-picked members of Bioware Montreal). That's a prospect nobody wants.

All major sci-fi franchise sequels this year were huge letdowns for me, yet all new sci-fi properties were extremely good. Maybe Luke Shepard was right. Maybe it truly is time for the Mass Effects, to end.

a mass effect Sims clone where you design your own ship and buy clothing and decoration lootboxes for your MEs. pronounced "mees"

when your MEs have sex it zooms into a choose your own adventure softcore porn minigame, if you last a long time you get credits to spend on lootboxes

you can pay RL money for replay tickets, allowing you to bang your subordinates more than once a day

coming in 2019

I'd just retcon it so Sovereign's failure on the Citadel results in the Reapers forgetting about our galaxy for another couple millennia.

Shepard's space adventures continue, and she lived happily ever after.

By mysterious coincidence, the events of ME2 transpire almost identically, just for different reasons. (Cause I don't want Shepard missing out on her ME2 buds)

You choose a color at the start of Mass Effect 4

- Red nothing happens, there's a line about how they rebuilt
- Blue there's a line about how the Reapers rebuilt stuff then self destructed
- Green you're asked to pick again. If you pick Green again there's a green filter over the whole game

quote:

The plot of ME:A should have been the human ark showing up, then Ryder looks up and sees the Krogan ark cutting the human one off then you play as a Krogan and you and your squad of angry frogmen headbutt your way to prosperity. Dialogue options include headbutting, punching, shouting, and shooting.

...

Just imagine it, instead of the Not Mako you could drive that giant truck-thing from ME2 and 3 on Tuchanka. The plot could be about who's angrier and dumber, the new alien invaders, the hostile new worlds, or you. Tensions could appear from not being in Council space so shut the gently caress up, turian diplomat, we're going to do what we want and use all the cool weapons you said were probably war crimes, and resolved by either agreeing with the krogans or punching the diplomat and then agreeing with the krogans (the "paragon" option).

The big moral choice at the end of ME:Krogan is whether to screw over the Krogran ark for some nebulous and contrived reason to help all arks survive or to decide to gently caress everyone else over for only the Krogan's gain. The first option is permanently greyed out.

The Green ending just means there's an extra line about how awesome nanotechnology is now but no effective gameplay changes because they effectively had nanotechnology before anyway.

Sometimes when you get mad they say "uh oh, green eyes mad!" But it doesn't effectively change anything.

The Engineers and Infiltrators get green eyes and the Sentinels wear cool shades so you can't tell what's up with them, man, maybe they've been smoking the green.

You're forgetting about the sentient hats. Because synthetic apparently means 'looks like a printed circuit board' in Mass Effect land.

I agree, Let it die. I still wanted Mass Effect after 3 because I thought the universe might be salvageable. Now I think that even if they manage to make a good game or two, some franchises (I'm looking at you, Star Wars) are better served by just ending instead of going on forever. Bring on the new poo poo. Give me more Horizon, plug that poo poo into my veins.
