DLC is taking forever. Shadow Broker was fun, but damn I need my Mass Effect fix.

Less than 24 hours away. I have a bunch of saves from me2 that i need to sift through and see which one i import first. I know for sure i have a shepard that ever since i picked up me 1 in 2007, has been nice to the aliens: save the rachni queen, aid the krogan, save the destiny ascension. I did destroy the collector base at the end of me 1 though.

Anyway, EXCITED for this epic game.

Eh I have multiple saves, but honestly
Don't expect my choices to matter, so I'll just playthrough with different classes.

I'm going to do one more save file.

Have one for me I'm paragon with slight renegade

My brother is full renegade, my cousin is the same as me but a little more renegade and I'm making a new save with all the wrong choices on purpose.
The one thing I want to see in life,TOHO buy Gamera.

Pre-Ordered this as a b-day present for my brother. He's a HUGE Mass Effect fan. I like it too, so I'm looking forward to playing it.

So apparently this game somehow surpassed both Dragon Age 2 and TORtanic in terms of disappointment. Can't say I'm surprised.

Not to a whole lot of people, obviously. Otherwise, this so called "news" of the game being disappointing would have come quite a while ago.

So yeah, I still stand by what I said: The game hasn't even been out for 24 hours yet. Give it more time.

Then if the game has been out to so many people, and is such a "disappointment", and you hate Mass Effect for whatever reason, how come you're just now figuring it out? You know, after the game has already come out? Shouldn't this have been news to you for a while now?

Besides, I've noticed that you hate Mass Effect for some reason that I haven't seen you say (even though you're the only person I've ever seen say anything bad about Mass Effect), and as Godzilla 1995 pointed out, the game is getting great reviews and has probably sold a lot of copies already. So really, you could just be blowing all of this out of proportion, and just hating on a really good game.

What? Yeah, the game has been leaked for a few days. I'm just talking about it now.

(even though you're the only person I've ever seen say anything bad about Mass Effect)

I don't hate the first Mass Effect, it's a pretty decent RPG with acceptable writing (Namely the Reaper speech). I do hate that EA has essentially run this series into the ground and people will continue to eat up Mac Walters awful writing and Bioware's pathetic casualization. Go anywhere else that isn't Bioware's forum, people can't stand Mass Effect 3 (see that meta critic page) and are starting to realize where Mass Effect 2 went wrong.

It's pretty obvious we're talking paid reviews when you consider the HUGE contrast between "critics" and user scores.

*Looks at the Metacritic page*

...The game has a 94 out of a 100! The only game that has a higher score than it right now is Skyrim! That's not disappointing at all.

What? Yeah, the game has been leaked for a few days. I'm just talking about it now.


...Except that the game was released to everyone last night, so it doesn't really matter if the game was leaked for a few days anymore.

(Large budget, hyped ending to a trilogy)
Totally not paid reviews.

What do you mean it doesn't matter? The point is that people have already realized how bad it is because of the leak.

Metacritic is still one of the premiere websites for reviewing, and the base score says 94 out of 100. It's still more impressive than most games. I don't care if they were paid or not, the game still has a score that would make most game designers cry.

What do you mean it doesn't matter? The point is that people have already realized how bad it is because of the leak.


...Except that, as you said, the leak only happened a few days ago. Subtract a day from that, and you get two or three days. That's really not enough time to decide if a game like Mass Effect is "disappointing" or not, especially when the critic scores say it's a damn good game.

What the skreeonk?

Let me try to explain what's happening. The reviewers were paid, as in given money by EA/Bioware (the company distributing the review copy to critics) to say that their game is good. This isn't an "oh we love critics so much that we're slipping a nice paycheck with our review copy for being such awesome people," this is a "You HAVE to say good things about our game unless you don't want review copies anymore/want to be fired from your job." You think that's respectable? You think that's something Bioware should be proud of?

Subtract a day from that, and you get two or three days. That's really not enough time to decide if a game like Mass Effect is "disappointing" or not, especially when the critic scores say it's a damn good game.

Two-three days is more than enough to finish one playthrough of Mass Effect, it's not that long of a game. It's enough time see the awful animation, it's enough time to hear the hamfisted, poorly voiced dialogue, and it's enough time to reach the ending that ultimately leads to none of your choices making a difference.
