[B]Release Dates[/B] November 2007 for Xbox 360 and June 2008 for PC. [B]Wikipedia[/B] Mass Effect is an action role-playing game developed by BioWare for the Xbox 360 and then ported to Microsoft Windows by Demiurge Studios. It is set in the year 2183 AD. Thirty-five years prior, humanity discovered a cache of technology on Mars, supposedly built by a technologically advanced but long-extinct race called the Protheans. Studying and adapting this technology, humankind has managed to break free of the solar system and has established numerous colonies and encountered various extraterrestrial species within the Milky Way galaxy. Utilizing alien artifacts known as Mass Relays, the various space-faring races are able to travel instantly across vast stretches of the galaxy. Within the game, humanity has formed the Human Systems Alliance, one of many independent bodies that make up the collective of "Citadel space". The player assumes the role of an elite human soldier named Commander Shepard, who commands the experimental SSV Normandy alongside Captain Anderson. The Normandy is sent to the human colony world of Eden Prime to recover an unearthed Prothean beacon. To assist in recovering the beacon, the Citadel Council, the galaxy's primary governing body has sent one of their top agents, a turian "Spectre", named Nihlus. A small team consisting of Nihlus, Shepard, biotic Kaidan Alenko, and the quickly-killed Corporal Jenkins, who is replaced by Gunnery Chief Ashley Williams, discover that the Eden Prime colony is under attack by alien synthetic life-forms known as the geth, led by a rogue turian Spectre named Saren Arterius, who kills Nihlus. After the battle ends, Shepard locates the beacon and receives a vision. While initially struggling to understand the vision, it turns out to be images of biological creatures being slaughtered by machines.[/quote] [B]Screenshots[/B] [QUOTE=Wiggles;18358102][URL=http://masseffect.bioware.com/_commonext/images/me/screenshots/2007/masseffect_75_1280x760.jpg][IMG]http://i33.tinypic.com/2el751l.jpg[/IMG][/url] [url=http://masseffect.bioware.com/_commonext/images/me/screenshots/2007/masseffect_63_1280x760.jpg][IMG]http://i36.tinypic.com/2w3x7gg.jpg[/IMG][/url] [url=http://masseffect.bioware.com/_commonext/images/me/screenshots/pc/masseffect_pc_15_1280x760.jpg][IMG]http://i37.tinypic.com/bfqasj.jpg[/IMG][/url][/quote] [B][I]Two years later...[/I][/B] [IMG]http://i36.tinypic.com/sxdaom.jpg[/IMG] [B]Countdown[/B] [QUOTE=Wiggles;18358102][B]North America[/B] [url=http://me2.tigerdyr1981.dk][img]http://me2.tigerdyr1981.dk/me2cdi.php[/img][/url] [B]Europe[/B] [url=http://me2.tigerdyr1981.dk][img]http://me2.tigerdyr1981.dk/me2cdi_eu.php[/img][/url][/quote] [B]Official Trailer[/B] [QUOTE=Wiggles;18358102][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tb17mHotTkI&hd=1[/media][/quote] [B]Game Information[/B] [QUOTE=Wiggles;18358102][B]Platforms[/B] Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

I just knew it was going to be jellyfish. Let the first few pages be about the Hanar

"I anxiously anticipate the new quote for the Mass Effect Megathread which, for all intents and purposes, will be around to usher forth Mass Effect 2." I knew it had to be the jellyfish.

I knew it had to be the jellyfish.[/QUOTE] If there is the option to punch a Hanar in ME2, even if I'm paragon I will knock it's lights out.
Let me tell you about the glory of the Enkindlers.
[QUOTE=hypno;19563864]Let me tell you about the glory of the Enkindlers.[/QUOTE] Hold it, get an evangelical permit first, then we'll hear it.
[QUOTE=jechtman;19563852]If there is the option to punch a Hanar in ME2, even if I'm paragon I will knock it's lights out.[/QUOTE] I can see it falling into a formless blob, then saying something like, "This one is most displeased with your violent tendencies." [editline]09:12PM[/editline] [QUOTE=hypno;19563864]Let [B]this one[/B] tell you about the glory of the Enkindlers.[/QUOTE] Fixed.
Enkindlers = Protheans.
[QUOTE=Canuhearme?;19564091]I can see it falling into a formless blob, then saying something like, "This one is most displeased with your violent tendencies." [/QUOTE] "This one will not pray to the Enkindlers for mercy on you." Nah that didn't sound right.
[QUOTE=Uberman77883;19564139]Enkindlers = Protheans.[/QUOTE] Earthclan = Human.
i hate all that "this one" crap they spew out fucking jellyfish, can't even be called a man o'war
[QUOTE=Uberman77883;19564139]Enkindlers = Protheans.[/QUOTE] Just for those not knowing.
[QUOTE=jechtman;19564140]"This one will not pray to the Enkindlers for mercy on you."[/QUOTE] That makes me think of Hanar enemies. The concept of Hanar wielding an assault rifle and wearing body armor in and of itself is hilarious.
I wish you could get an Elcor in your party
[QUOTE=Frayyyy;19564199]I wish you could get an Elcor in your party[/QUOTE] In that same vein, it should have a Volus commanding a machine gun mounted on its back.
[QUOTE=Canuhearme?;19564195]That makes me think of Hanar enemies. The concept of Hanar wielding an assault rifle and wearing body armor in and of itself is hilarious.[/QUOTE] If anything it would be a bubble gun shooter. Hang on, just thought of something...
[QUOTE=Canuhearme?;19564231]In that same vein, it should have a Volus commanding a machine gun mounted on its back.[/QUOTE] That would be beautiful ;_;
Oh and Wiggles, post a link or two to the previous Mass Effect Megathreads somewhere in the op.
That reminds me. $20 says we see the pathetic Turian officer who couldn't even talk down a Hanar in Mass Effect 2.
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOvGGDH03gg[/media] Took a video for proper justice :(
[QUOTE=bepassley;19564613] [URL="http://www.facepunch.com/#"]View YouTUBE video[/URL] [URL]http://youtube.com/watch?v=zOvGGDH03gg[/URL] Took a video for proper justice :([/QUOTE] That's something Space Marine Shepherd would do, but I just couldn't bear myself to do it.
[QUOTE=Canuhearme?;19564231]In that same vein, it should have a Volus commanding a machine gun mounted on its back.[/QUOTE] They should totally take the mako gun and mount it on an Elcor
the mako would do a 90 degree turn and flip you off of a bridge before you got a shot
Hanar + Elcor = Best possible species ever
[QUOTE=bepassley;19564828]the mako would do a 90 degree turn and flip you off of a bridge before you got a shot[/QUOTE] wait what
[QUOTE=the_killer24;19564985]wait what[/QUOTE] Exactly
I wonder if we'll see Turian females this time.
Thought you were going to have a collage of all our Shepards, Wiggles.
FUCKING KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE NAMED THIS [quote=ze spy;19558399]Because it's a big stupid jellyfish? [/quote] Fuck YEAH!
Mass Effect 2 needs more murderous Elcor. [editline]10:20PM[/editline] And Shifty Looking Cows [img]http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/masseffect/images/thumb/d/d7/Spacecow.jpg/240px-Spacecow.jpg[/img]
