BioWare: Don't Get Rid of Mass Effect 3 Saves

 Pages PREV 1 2 3 NEXT
 

Please...Just focus on proving everyone that said ME3 will be the final straw wrong...I just want ME3 to make me scream tears of joy. That's all I ask...

I would be shocked if this was for anything other than dlc or a spinoff before the next console generation arrives.

They did the exact same thing with .Hack//Quarantine

I am convinced there's going to be a new Mass Effect series

HobbesMkii:
Garrus and Liara spin-off into their own series where they solve crimes on Illium. Garrus plays the role of the by-the-books cop while Liara is the wild card rookie. But look for an old friend (Cmdr. Shepard) to drop by and help them out from time-to-time. It's called Lethal Effect or Mass Weapon. Your save game isn't that important except to determine whether or not the Shepard cameo is MaleShep or FemShep.

Naw, cut that shit.
Garrus, is a wild card and he knows it.
Wait, any ever notice how Irish Garrus's voice is? You hear it whenever he says Shepard.

And let the milking, commence.

In all fairness they might turn out interesting so... im not complaining, i just wanted to say that because it sounded funny in my head.

I beg to differ. While Garrus goes all anti-hero badass in ME2, we all know he is getting too old for this shit.

Maybe they're going to make an MMO... Oh wait.

Err, I'll be boring and say DLC then, maybe an expansion pack, ooh.

Clearly Shephard is going to die for good at the end of ME3 and we will instead continue the story of James Vega and whatever the new reporter is called in "Citadel Shore"

Dammit Liara, I'm getting to old for this shit and It's only 2 weeks from retirement.

Might as well has a Volus in place of Leo Getz

.... Oi... Bioware, unless you create a game where Shepard storms EA headquarters, I am not really going to consider anything after ME3.

my ME ends with ME2. surely not surprised to read this but as long origin is required, ME3 (sorry, i mean spyware origin) will never see my HD from the inside. so there will be no saves of ME3.

and when i keep reading the ME3 forum, things are sure not getting any better. tones of posts are removed claiming that the comment was not ME3 and origin related.
it proofs to me clearly that €A forces origin to everyone and uses bioware as puppets, trying to make origin look good and remove comments of anyone saying otherwise about it.

DustyDrB:
I'm absolutely fine with them carrying on the Mass Effect universe sans-Shepard. I'd love to be a Quarian on his or her pilgrimage, or a Turian trying to climb the military ranks. Go ahead, piss and moan about "milking the cash cow". I'll be too busy enjoying the stories and gameplay.

This^^^^^^

Although I will be sad when this trilogy ends. I actually care about quite a few of the characters in the trilogy now.

I'm sure you have already heard this before, but you are a genius. I would pay various amounts of money just to see that.

I would love to play a Hanar or Elcor specter!

HOP TO BIOWARE!!! CHOP CHOP!

...What?

No, I am pretty much done with Mass Effect. 3 will be my last EA purchase. Depending on the DLC offerings for ME3, but that is a big maybe.

I'd like to say it was one thing, namely Origin, but that was the straw that broke this camel's back. It's been building since EA took over Command & Conquer.

A Hanar and Elcor buddy cop game would probably be the best thing ever.

"This one is too aged to proceed with such matters."

...I would probably be ashamed of myself...but I would buy it.

I am just imagining an LA noire style mass effect game with a more humorous plotline.

I can just imagine the joys of trying to figure out the lies based on the expressions of a quarian's or volus' face!

Interrogating Elcor would be interesting...

"Evasive statement. I have no idea what you are talking about officer."

"Insincere admisssion. I did not kill that person."

How might a shepard have kids with Tali, Garrus or Thane? And Jack doesn't seem the kids type. Though Tali and Garrus would probably want to adopt.

I guess we can expect to hear ME4 news if The Old Republic starts losing subscribers.

It'll effect Mass Effect 4.

YOU KNOW THERE WILL BE ONE. It may not be focused on Shepard (which is for the best, I think), but there will be one.

Zen Toombs:
I would love to continue the Mass Effect universe, but for anything but DLC I would mostly rather that they set the game in the far future or past. Otherwise it would likely be too complicated.

Also, in terms of DLC, please don't release someone as cool as Katsumi as late as you did for Mass Effect 2. You'll make the fanboys cry.

And that was the advantage of me getting the PS3 release MWAHAHAHAHA!!!

Thing is, I didn't use her a lot O.O She was cool but I mainly led a team with Tali and Garrus xD

Stalydan:

I love those two, and romanced Tali on the "Me" playthrough, but I could never bring myself to run her more than the bare minimum.

Besides, for Katsumi I've played the game about 6-7 times through. The first time I got Katsumi, the game could've been named "Shep % Kat + 1". If the plus one was some sort of lizard monster.

Maybe the next Mass Effect will have Shepard's kid as the protagonist. Any romancin' you did in the previous game would decide what species it would be.

This is probably so they can say:
"We did not put in that many choices to make ME4 easier to do!"
"But isint that what you said about ME2 in regards to ME3?"
"Uhm...well look! COMBAT ARMOR THAT SHOWS OF A CHICKS ASS!"
WHERE!!!!!!! -looks away-
"Suckers..."

Honestly at this point I dont think that Mass Effect is anything more than a desperate attempt to cash in some more money for EA.

That's ridiculous. The decisions in Mass Effect didn't have any effect on Mass effect 2. Mass Effect 3 won't be different, we already know that it dosn't matter what you did with the collector base. We will fight against Cerberus.
I'm sure that the other decisions only matter in some dialogues.

The previuos games have already taught us that secret.

So.......I should keep my Mass effect 3 file for a Dragon Age game? :3

Hat Man:
They said that they want to do more with the franchise.

It will probably be something like DA:Os imported saves into DA2. The events happened off to the side so they don't influence you directly, but you can seen the fallout of your choices in the long run.

This is my guess.

There was some discussion previously in this forum concerning the idea of a post ME3 game that we called "Mass Effect: Origins" where you could play as any of the races and (likely) got recruited as a Spectre and sent out to deal with various situations.

If that is the case, then the decisions that the player made in ME3 would be necessary to frame the universe. Who's in charge of what? Which planets got blown up, which ones were saved? Are the Krogan cured or not? Who is currently living on the Quarian homeworld? Stuff like that.

What I've sometimes been thinking is that we don't defeat the reapers at the end of ME3 (This ISN'T a spoiler, just speculation). I mean, the odds are on there side and since multiplayer has an impact on singleplayer, if you defeat the reapers, there would be no reason for the multiplayer story. It could be that the next game is pockets of resistance against the reapers...
Who knows?
Sorry if someone already said this.

Omnific One:

I'm really not sure if I would buy another Mass Effect game without Shepard. Mass Effect 1 was the first game I got for my first dedicated console, and I'd say that ME won't be the same without Shepard and some of the cast.

To be honest, I'm operating under the assumption that Shepard isn't going to survive the end of Mass Effect 3, one way or another.

I mean, if you track the story of Mass Effect, what do you have? Initially, the galaxy disbelieves Shepard entirely. Then, when Shepard has some measure of proof, the threat is downplayed and Shepard is sent off on largely meaningless errands... which wind up killing him.

Then, after having returned as a sort of cybernetic Jesus-figure, Shepard is ultimately proven utterly right, presumably at the beginning of Mass Effect 3 when the Reapers show up and start killing everything in sight.

Having Shepard martyr himself (in some fashion) in order to destroy the Reaper threat (in some fashion), seems almost inevitable.

that is exactly what it is going to be, at the most 1 of the squad will be in the next game. people dream too much :p

How well would that work if Garrus was dead though?

The saves will clearly influence the state of the universe during the upcoming Mass Effect - Futurama crossover. Romance options will include Leela and Amy for ManShep, Fry and Hermes for FemShep, and Zoidberg for everyone.

MarsProbe:
Sometime after ME3 finishes off, they may or may not release a trailer that shows Shepard emerging from some sort of stasis pod at the behest of EDI to find themselves on a rapidly disintegrating ship. After transferring EDI onto a portable storage device, Shepard uses some heavy weapons to shot his/her way out of the wreck to find what's left of the ship, and finds it drifting towards what may either be a huge spacestation or a super mass relay that will send them off to a distant galaxy.

I see what you did there.
