Well I was really pleased with the game so I just hope movie won't make a bad impression.

I hope they don't mess this up, seeing as Mass Effect is one of my favorite RPG series of all time...

It's a dating simulator.



and

This anime is going to be retarded. There is absolutely no reason for them to do this other then milking this series for all the money its worth (and after that pile of shit that was ME2 it isn't worth much).

Going to be a giant waste of space just like that 'halo anime'.

Shepard-Commander.

Okay, okay. Aaaanyways, I'm watching this even if it is terrible. I wonder if they'll have any of the original ME cast or if it's just a spin-off.

Considering their approach to every single other spin off material it won't feature Shepard at all. That way you can insert the side material as "Canon" material into your own storyline for ME. Since each players story is different.

I vote for them doing the Rachni war, or Cerberus before Shep. Something in the past that would expand upon blank space.

Why are you watching the S2 of the anime that you loathe?
¬‿¬ And those guys who think they are elite because they watched (earlier or) more anime than others.

Yeah they'll have to use someone other than Shepard. Although if they were to use him no doubt it would be paragon Shepard (so in other words no punching news reporters).

As long as Shep's love interest doesn't turn out to be an under-aged loli we should be okay.

I'm gonna assume you don't know what the fuck your talking about. You play the role of Shepard in a fictional universe and make choices for your character as you move through the narrative. How is this not an RPG?

Am I the only one who thinks this will fail horribly? Because it will. I'm calling it right now.

Anyone even remotely connected to the gaming scene will know that EA's marketing department have been a bunch of nitwits the last couple of years. They're stopped caring about making quality games, just making sure as many people buy it. This is no different, just another gimmicky tactic to garner more publicity. Heck some of EA's other campaigns cost more than making an anime.

The game doesn't even translate well into an anime. What happened to player-driven dialogue and story? I want to decide if I help someone or shoot them in the face, not let some director in an office do it for me. The only way to avoid this is to not feature Shepherd... no sorry, no Shepherd just isn't going to work. And I don't see how they're going to translate some of the voice acting into Japanese, IF it's going to be Japanese at all. Last thing we need is for Mordin's hilarity to be lost in translation. *sigh*

Instead of doing this, why not spend some time and money fixing the giant turd that is Dragon Age 2? Fucking EA dipshits.

And yet most of the choices you make have very little impact on the story, it just determines who survives at the end of the suicide mission nothing more.

And let me tell you I know what Im talking about, I have been a bioware fan for quite a long while but ever since EA acquired them they went downhill. Didnt even bother to buy Dragon age 2.

It also determines whether you survive in the end, meaning you won't be able to use your own Shepard in Mass Effect 3 if you don't make it in Mass Effect 2.

Let's hope they get it right. Haven't played the game myself but the art and the setting always looked intriguing to me.

They did it many times with VN-based anime. Though I have to admit I hated almost all of them.. But, this kind of anime seem to be having a lot of fans, too. Considering that ME don't have player-driven storyline as "strong" as most VNs, I think they'll be fine... well.. I hope... umm..oh, hell, I think you're right.. I have a serious bad feeling about this..

Meh.

I have a feeling this will suck just every other anime of a western franchise. I'll keep an eye out for this but that's about it.

Interesting, but I'm sure that anime version will be quite distinct from the original game. Maybe even some characters will be absent, replaced by exclusive, anime-only ones. And the plot will be very AU.

Ah, forgot to mention loli-alike Liara.

Don't care about this.

ME1 was a good bioware game, with some design flaws.

ME2 was outright sellout commercial third person shooter that streamlined away what was great about the game (mystery, awesome characters, exploration storyline, rpg elements, inventory, etc) and made game appeal to generic gaming community.

ME3 so far does not look any better than ME2, sadly.

This? This is just another step for EAware to sellout the franchise even more. Not interested.

It's so funny seeing all the bashing about RPG.
Get the fuck out of the 90's and grow up some.

-laughs at your horrible aged games being cited as anything remotely good-

Fanboys stuck in the past are almost as much fun to laugh at as weabos.

Exactly what I'm thinking. They're starting to churn out glorified call of duty games. What with DA2 being potentially the worst game I've played since one....

Now they've hopped the MP bandwagon of high-concentrate failure and are making anime. Excusez moi as I facepalm myself into a concussion.

well judging from the leaked script of ME3 it's turned into a retarded anime so, should fit in just fine.
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't laugh or cry..... All it does from dusk till dawn is make the soldiers die.

Mass Effect Multiplayer isn't BAD. I played it a bit. It's FUN.
But it's a tacked on feature that ruins the impact of the single player story.
The fact its also a fuck you in the form of anti piracy protection that hurts paying customers, as per usual, is an added kick in the pants.

Do not know what think of this anime.

I can't see a way for Production I.G to mess up. They've put out pretty solid stuff in the past.

MAL is the dark underbelly of the anime community. While other naive fanboys and fangirls run around in real life forming clubs and squealing in deafening high pitch noises about their favourite animus, we remain here, meticulously dismantling the credibility of each and every show, until all that remains is a steaming pile of tropes and ass pulls which we then devour to gratiyfy our glutinous and masochistic desires.

An ME anime and they decide to make it about James? How about a person people actually gave a crap about like Tali, Garrus, Wrex, or Anderson?

Hey, you think he's going to overplay the Hispanic thing like he does in the game? "Pendejo" this and "Loco" that?
