Jesus Christ. When all is said and done I’ll have been waiting five fucking years for my next Mass Effect. Five fucking years!
Pretty wild guerilla (?) marketing. A staff member from BioWare wore the company’s new IP on his shirt throughout GDC and no one (understandably) noticed. I imagined there are many folks currently attempting to find a picture of said Lad, and divine the new IP. Do the hard work for me, friends.
What the fuck. Like, *the game* I was sweating this year.
What the fuck? Man. I want ME4 to be good so hard. So hard! So hard, that this news really concerns me. The optimist within this meat-shell hopes this is just a case of Chris Schlerf returning to Bungie because he missed the joint and they made him a sizable offer to save Destiny. Not, you know, him abandoning a ship of dumpster-fire ruin.
BioWare has dropped a new Mass Effect 4 trailer in celebration of N7 Day. It’s all good and such, with Commander Shepard “signing off” or whatever. But man. Can we see some fucking footage? Like even a dialogue wheel? Maybe?
Mass Effect! Motherfutzer returns next year, and god dammit I cannot wait. Also arriving next year? A friggin’ Mass Effect theme park ride.
Welcome back, Drew Karpyshyn! You are the writer of the original Mass Effect, and a lad who had spent a long time with BioWare. You wandered off, and realized how good you had it at your former employer. Now you’ve returned. Wizened. Grateful. Homesick. Us BioWare fans are happy to have you back, too.
Jade Raymond has hopped from one enormous, bloated, annualizing company to another enormous, bloated, annualizing company to start her own studio. But uh, she’s also going to be overseeing a couple of my most anticipated games, on top of that. Mass Effect: Andromeda, and the as-of-now-not-revealed Star Wars game from Visceral.
