    Only the last 5 minutes. Everything up to then was fine.

    Except in the case of ME, that fucks over all choices made in ALL 3 games.
    Not all of them, but some of them. Still didn't ruin the game, except those last 5 minutes.

    Nah that fucked it for me it made every choice I made throughout 3 games feel pointless.

    I had multiple play throughs, did multiple different things, still didn't ruin the experience for me. Some of my choices still paid off in some way, things like killing or not killing Rex, the Genophage thing, yada yada.

    That ending is complete dog shit tho.

    As gameplay experiences they only got better with each one imo.

    I called ME going down the drain as soon as EA took rights to it.

    So you called Mass Effect being a bad series all the way back in 2007 when the first game came out? EA has always been a publisher for the series. They picked it up in 2008 after Microsoft.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_Effect_(video_game)

    ME was already done before EA bought them, ME2 is the one where EA started flexing their muscle.

    In what fashion?

    They wanted it to be more casual which is why everything was gutted and it felt more like a shooter then an rpg. They also made the game easier to attract a bigger audience.

    And they still made a good game anyway so what's the issue?

    I mean I wasn't happy about stripping the RPG depth either but it was still a good game.

    Oh I didn't hate ME2 it was good just a step down from the original, 3 can go die in a dumpster fire.

    It was 2/3 of a good game, the last third just ruined it for me. Only ME I didn't do multiple playthroughs of, did play mp a lot though.

    That game...One of the most beautifully crafted stories in ANY medium EVER. And it's on the DS!

    That's not The World Ends With You or Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure.

    Those two games alone are worth the price of admission.

    Planet Puzzle League, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Chrono Trigger DS, Pokemon Black/White(2), Contra 4, Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, Mario 64 DS(which is way better than a port should be), and way, way more titles than I could possibly think to list right now.

    Did Po just list re-releases as good things?

    Who are you and what you done with Po?

    I have less hate for portable remakes of console games in general for their portability...

    Also, those two games are two of the few remakes that actually add something other than a fresh coat of paint...

    Since they come with exclusive new areas, music, items, characters, and even multiplayer features where there wer none before.

    I honestly dont see the problem with remasters, a lot of them add things. Repeated remasters are annoying (looking at you capcom) but in general arent so bad

    I really wish Mass Effect would stop doing the "short summary" approach when it comes to picking a choice for dialogue options. Way too many times have I chosen an option, only for Shepard to say something more biting or callous than what the summary implied. Just show me exactly what I'm going to say.

    Human Revolution got it right.

    I absolutely agree with this. Playing through Fallout 4 currently (friend lent it to me, I'll try anything for free) and while I'm enjoying it a lot more then Fallout 3 (I have a lot of issues with it tho) one thing that is absolutely a step back from 3 is the dialogue tree. 3 listed out exactly what each option was going to say, while 4 is going the Mass Effect route of just telling you what the mood of the response is going to be, and even then it's sometimes off and I've gotten responses that weren't what I had intended. Kind of annoying and was done better in FO3 and games like Deus Ex.

    The dialogue here is actually pretty in line with Mass Effect humor, but th execution of the lines are bad. Also flirting with characters in the first 3 games was never this heavy handed and direct. At least I don't remember it being like that except for Jack maybe. Idk about the FemShep romances.

    Speaking of Mass Effect romances this is fucking hilarious

    I kinda like that Ryder seems to be a bit more forward with their love interest, least in that scene. Dancing around the subject all the time is fucking annoying and awkward.

    The dialogue in Mass Effect isn't always great but it never felt like I was watching adults acting like a bunch of teenagers. Fem Ryder acting like she on Buffy.

    Remasters adding things can be touchy depending on what they add or enhance. I didn't go over well for Modern Warfare Remastered. To be fair they did state it was to be a match of the original. 3 months in they added new things that while didn't break gameplay, did break what they originally thought.

    I liked REmake more than the original RE. Still would wish for REmake2...but capcom will eff it up

    I adore Mass Effect 3. But I didn't play it until all of its DLC was out, so I never got to see the vanilla ending. I got the Extended Cut and walked away very satisfied.

    What they need to avoid is remastering recent games. WTF are games like TLoU getting remastered? Save that shit for the older titles people actually remember and want to see realized in a better light. A lot more fighters need remasters while we're at it, or at least HD rereleases.

    I'm fine with remasters if the games are 10 years old or more. Games get forgotten over time, so re-releasing them is a good way to reintroduce them to the newer generation as well as people who want to replay those games again but improved.

    I believe that any games with a decent following at least 2 generations old should receive a port at the very worst, so people who haven't experienced them can play themselves. Some people, like myself, switch consoles between generations so it's a good way to help stragglers. Just don't charge full price for them unless they're legitimate remasters that add a lot of stuff.

    Well since there were cheats to bring her back in your party, the fact that everyone was mad about it, and also the evidence that she had assets later in the game that were unused such as dialogue, I'd imagine so.
