Best game ever.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

wow...so that's what it looks like when someone agrees with you.

I refuse to connect the Xbox360 to the Internet (not one single trailer has ever been able to finish). Is there another source available?

I don't know, this doesn't seem that impressive, so far. They haven't revealed a whole lot of info, and the little they have revealed is about the graphics, and from this video they don't seem that good, in fact I think the animations are a bit wooden.

 

As for gameplay, all they've said is that the dialogues are awesome because they will be the best ever in a game and the tactical action will be also awesome just because. That is, all we've gotten so far is pure hype.

 

Now, I'm not saying the game won't be good. Considering it's from Bioware I'd say it will be at least competent, however I don't feel there's enough information to say anything about the game's potential.

And it's probably 5(including romances and sidequests) hours long, if the recent trend continues.

Everyone that was at E3 disagrees with you on graphics, as does everyone that's posted on the subject that viewed in via the marketplace.

What do you mean by fixed main character? You create your own - unless you mean fixed by you having to play a human so the story makes sense. Framerate was improved (as well as the overall visuals) by a single optimization pass after E3, Bioware dev was talking about it on their forums the other day.

Visually, the game looks really good even with the current framerate. The dialogue system which they seem to be praising... Well, NPCs talk to you, you choose a response and they replay based on that responce! Am I missing something? That's certainly nothing new or groundbreaking. It looks like there is no character creation either and he has a voice and his own personality apparently. That just seems wrong for a western RPG, but then again that might encourage a healthier, more intricate plot involvement. The story seems pretty lame at the moment, but I'm it will get better once more of the plot is actually be revelead.

 

It's definitely the most interesting Xbox 360 game I've seen so far.

 

 

 

...

 

 

Any chance on a PC release?

I'd assume some parts of it will be fixed.  The character has a voice over, so you can't have too much variance in terms of physical appearance.

 

Though I see no reason why your attributes couldn't be custom.

 

Well, hopefully they'll do a DX2 and have both a male and female lead choice.

With the full voice overs it may be less likely.

 

I haven't played DX2 though. It would have had full voice overs as well, but would there be as much opportunity to talk in DX2 as in Mass Effect?
