Mass Effect Trilogy: Definitive Edition (What're the chances?)

#1BlacksentinelPosted 2/5/2014 6:09:36 AM
Anybody think it's likely EA will/would re release the Mass Effect Trilogy on the PS4 and XBone with updated graphics and all the DLC? It annoys me that the DLC hasn't been made available on a disc like many other games have done.

I think you're crazy. The games looks great as it is.

The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

Tomb Raider looked great on the PS3 and 360 also. I'm not saying the ME series needs a face lift. Seems like an easy cash in for EA.

It will be pretty expensive to redo every asset. I believe Square Enix had to pay a pretty penny to get it reworked.

It would be awesome. Rework some of the game mechanics in all of the games... but I doubt this will happen. I mean Kotor needed a remake in HD with new assets, improved and etc, but it didn't happen. There's some people who never played Kotor too.

I hate games with bad game design

The chances are probably pretty low considering that they just released the Trilogy set about a year ago.

And even if they did do it, I wouldn't buy it.

When you tell someone that they don't understand something, be sure to enlighten them instead of just being a vague and pretentious dick.

Bad idea I think.

I hate re-releases that are just the original game with an overhaul. For instance, I assumed Halo:CE Anniversary was going to be Halo: CE with nice graphics and all the little bits they added later that the MC could have done storyline wise but they hadn't thought the idea up yet. If I had realised it was just Halo: CE with nice graphics, I'd just have played Halo again instead. Stuff like not being able to board vehicles? There is no storyline reason MC can't do this other than the fact they hadn't thought the mechanic up. Sur,e I should have researched but honestly, I expected them to put a little more work into the game than just a graphical upgrade.

So they need to update the game and features and the like. But how? Do you make ME more like ME3 or make ME3 more like ME? Do you re-record voices? Do you make the Ashley Williams model in ME as slutty as her ME3 one? What shade of sexy blue should Liara be? Do you put Kaiden-ManShep romance into ME and a proper gay option (read: Not Liara) for FemShep in ME? Would you take out the infinite ammo weapons in the first game so that you don't have to have that awkward discussion in ME2 about how (story-wise, not gameplay-wise) it is a terrible and stupid idea? Fix some of the flags that went a little haywire?

I think... damned if you do, damned if you don't. If they don't change anything people will moan. If they change a lot of things, people will moan. I'd buy it, but I'm easy and I love ME trilogy enough to pay for it again happily.

I doubt this would happen. ME was never a "graphics porn" type of game anyway.

I'd much rather see the next Mass Effect game sooner on Xbox One than see the trilogy re-made.

This. Even if it was just a month's difference. Or a week, lol.

EA isn't in the habit of doing ports years later, so don't expect to see a next-gen ME Trilogy.

Besides, higher-res graphics aren't the only things that should be done: ME1 & ME2 need to have serious combat & control adjustments.

Xbox One games looked more impressive...but I wish they were on the PS4. **** you Microsoft! \m/ (O_o) \m/
