  1. It's a shame that Joe's costume didn't come twice in a row, first power rangers and then this. Otherwise it'll be even more hilarious. Well, at least the in game glitches makes me laugh hard.
  2. I've read and seen a lot of criticism about the game, which, in my eyes, seems mostly unfounded. I've played about 8 hours of the trial now and I absolutely love it. I was immediately sucked back in to the world that I loved from the first three games, almost seemlessly. However, I see a lot of criticism about the faces and how the game looks, amongst other things. Are people STILL salty about the ending of Mass Effect 3? Or is the criticism genuine? For me personally, this is definitely a Game of the Year-contender, so far.

  9. Bioware! You rat bastard dirty sons (and daughters) of bitches!! I was out...I was done and content after the Citadel DLC....and then you drop this in my lap! Damn YOU! (sigh) When's the release date?
  10. Eyyo. Reporting for duty. Just a FNG reporting in. I like Mass Effect (As I'm sure you can tell), like, a lot. A lot a lot. Mostly joined up for some social gaming. Only on PC, though, I don't have enough money to keep up my XBL gold anymore. As that goes, I play a lot of MMOs, Guild Wars 2, Planetside 2, SWTOR, ectetera.
  11. So I was looking on Reddit and I stumbled upon this link (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1031314) from NeoGaf which gives some info on Mass Effect 4, which is a really interesting read if you are into Mass Effect. According to the OP, info on Dragon Age Inquisition leaked in the same way, right before its official announcement, that al ended up true. I think it all looks legit, so let me know what you think.
  12. Interview with Ashe Soriano Online YouTuber/Content Creator. Known also as Ladyinsanity. We talk about her experience with with competitive gaming, YouTube, Twitch, and her current project with the ShoddyCast involving Dragon Age Inquisition. Original Broadcast: Nov. 8 & 16 http://wuec.org/broadcasts-2/ Want to hear more: Follow my blog Le Rouge Poste http://rothscm.wordpress.com/.
  13. So by now, most of you have probably heard that there's gonna be a ME4. This excites me as much as it worries me. I loved the ME series- even with how bad the over all ending was, the build up? As a role player, that emotional journey with my own personal Shepard was absolutely insane- and I'll never forget it. One of the best story/rpg gaming experiences of my life, hands down. Again, the ending left me fairly disappointed, but that build up... VERY few games even manage that, let alone an acceptable ending. (No, I'm not looking for a list of games that do this successfully). So with Mass Effect 4, I know the biggest question going around right now, is "are we going to be able to port all our saved data from the previous 3 games?". Here's where I sound crazy because- I don't want to be able to port my Shepards story. Yes I know the big breathe thing "oh shepard might have survived" thing. Don't care... I want a new story- same theme/etc., but the biggest problem I have every time I try and go back to replay the game series, is I'm always pulled back to replay my original Shepards. Again, I'm a role player, so once I've made a character, making a variant to him just isn't something I can manage with ease... I invest a lot emotionally into my RP characters. I want to be able to start fresh and new. Yes I want to know what happened to Shepard and what that big teaser breathe at the end was supposed to be, but I want the new game to be so far set in the future that the old decisions don't matter as much. I know that this probably isn't going to be the case, as the 3 decisions (story wise) were fairly different, and basically effected the over all world drastically... (it just wasn't delivered well...). Are we all synthetics/etc., or the other options. I'd love to be able to start fresh and new, with a new character to create, to invest role play wise, and learn these new things. If I'm just re-discovering all the things of my original Shepards past- I honestly don't see that as new! I already know what I've done with my character! I don't need to re-learn everything through little side reminders. This is a hard spot for me, as the things I loved the most about the original 3, were that I got to see all (or most...) of my little/major decisions come to light during the course of the games. Yet at the same time I want this to be the end of a characters chapter. Let there be a new character- and not a character who invests all his time into figureing out our old character! I want a new journey, a new adventure, new characters, etc., etc.. The main thing that SCARES me about the port system is that all my ME games are over on the 360. I have a PS4... How the hell am I going to port that saved data over? I assume if they do it, they'll include some kind of questionnaire, but that just feels lame to me... I don't wanna re-pick all my decisions! Some- if not most, I will have forgotten. I want the surprise of "oh s**t, that's right, I did that!", not, "Well I did that, but this sounds better". Well, I hope it's a new start. If they wanna add small little notes about Shepard, that's fine, but I'm gonna be pissed of the new series is all about trying to re-learn about a character- WE ALL F**KING LIVED FOR 3 GAMES. Seriously... That's just lazy milking of a franchise... What are your guys thoughts? Do you want a whole new game with no port option? Or do you want ports that just continue the story further.
  14. A interview I did for my WUEC Radio segment which was broadcasted on WPR. Revolution72 is most well known for his Mass Effect source-film Animation Manufactured Alliances. http://bit.ly/1o9wasm If you want to see more pieces follow my blog.
  15. What's your best moment of this franchise as it is full of best moments
  16. I just want all of you Fans of Mass Effect who played the Trilogy to listen to this music wich all of you know: I wanted to share this whit you to get a little bit nostalgic and remember your good times in Mass Effect when you where exploring the Galaxy and playing this Game. I want you to remember all the good memories wich you connect whit this Game, that you lean back and just listen to this Sound.I think when a Game gives you a feeling like this then it becomes more then just a Game, it gives you so much more. Its truly Art and you can feel the Hearts blood in it, it touches the Soule. Will there ever be a Game like this again? If yes share it whit me show me, and i will play it. Because until now only Mass Effect and Metal Gear Solid make me feel this way. Tell me what you feel if you listen to this. I just wish my Memories of Mass Effect are erased so i can play this awsome Game again.
  17. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=862537 Link contains more stuff including a link to a video and some stills of the Mako and character models and stuff. I'm still cautiously optimistic about this title. Bioware and EA are still on the dark side of gaming for me because of their half-assing of ME3 and its ending. Idk, man. What does the AJSA community think of it?
  18. Ign just posted a video about a possible Mass Effect trilogy leak on ps4 did anyone play these games and would you buy them again on ps4? If it's true I would definatly buy it
  19. Three Questions for the Angry Army... 1. Which Mass Effect Is The Best? 2. Who Is Your Favorite Squad Member? 3. Did Mass Effect 3's Original Ending Permanently Ruin The Series For You? Three Questions I ask myself every day...XD Gotta Say... 1. Mass Effect 3 (With Extended Cut) 2. Tali 3. No [it made sense to me, left a hell of a lot to be desired, but it made sense, and it worked in my opinion. Extended Cut is MUCH better though.]
  20. Yesterday, I finished the whole Mass Effect trilogy for the first time. Played it from the first mission of the first game, to the last of the last with the same Shepard. Let me first say: this game trilogy is absolutely fantastic. There are few games with this amount of content, replay value and good game mechanics all in one. After the Elder Scrolls, the Mass Effect-franchise is now my favourite. Now, I wanna say something about the ending. Prior to playing the three games, I've heard a lot of controversy about the ending. I know there was a lot of criticism about it, but I didn't know the finer details about it, because I didn't want to spoil the game for myself. Gameplay-wise, the last mission was absolutely epic. It really felt like it was the end of the ever-lasting battle that started in the first Mass Effect-game. So that was very satisfying. I was almost literally tied to my computer screen by the time I reached the final choice. When I got there, I was given 2 options. This surprised me a little bit, because I thought there would be three (I'll come back to this later). I chose the option that destroys the reapers, rather than controlling them. The ending cutscenes were rather satisfying, and after watching them, I really felt like I'd completed something significant. Then I was done, and I reflected back to 93 hours of gameplay. Then I searched online a bit as to what choices led to what results and what possibilities there were. There was only one thing that struck me: in order to get a high "Effective Military Ranking", you need to finish as much missions as possible to gain war assets, but ALSO, you HAVE to play online to get the "galaxy ready". This was rather disappointing. I played this game only in single player, because the multiplayer didn't appeal to me. Now the internet tells me that I needed to play online in order to get better ending results and the possibility of the earlier-mentioned third option. BUT: that is the only point of critique I have about the ending. Everything I was perfectly fine with. The ending felt like a satisfying end to the epic storyline and I really felt like I had accomplished something. Was all this controversy about the ending necessary? No, I think not. The journey to the ending was amazing and that's what it's all about. Now, the series' best-known trope is the "bad ending", while the series itself is filled with amazing stories and gameplay. It doesn't deserve that negative note. The ending wasn't bad enough to justify that.
  21. Angry Joe + Mass Effect = Yes.

  22. Hey Guys! Big News! Just kicked off a brand new show I've been planning called M1k3y's Sleeping Psyche! The show focuses on the dreams of one weird geeky psycho gamer (M1k3yVasNormandy) who has played, watched, and or experienced WAY too much of something, and is now paying for it when his psyche turns the tables on him and his world is torn inside-out. I'm very excited to see where the show is going to go. Thanks for watching, and please enjoy. Let me know of any feedback you have, comment, like, sub, ect, just let me know what you think, so I can improve and keep evolving. Thanks again.

  23. Hello Angry Army, I never played Mass Effect and I'm going to buy the trilogy at the end of this year to play on my vacation, but I heard that some of the DLC are important to the main plot of the game, I wanna know if this plot-related DLC are worth my money and if the main plot of the game can stand without all DLC.
  24. I finally completed Mass Effect 3 a few months ago after being a fan of the series since Mass Effect 2. Mass effect 2 is probably my favorite game of all time and 3 was fantastic as well (although I preferred it before the extended cut came out because that basically killed the indoctrination theory). What are your guys opinions on the series? Favorite one? Best/Worst moment in the game? Who did you romance/why?
  25. those three series are on my must play but I can only afford one.
