I still say Bioware should disperse and go work for Obsidian. Then maybe we can have Obsidian coaching those new fools on what we truly want and MS supporting them and giving them the direction and resources needed.

Or better yet the actual older BioWare group that made jade empire, kotor and ME and DA:O. The current employee crop seems to be a big part of the issue

I didn't know until just now (after looking at their Wikipedia page) that they were also contracted to make MDK 2, one of my all time favorite games. That makes their fall from grace even more difficult. They went from making one of my top 3 favorite games from the Dreamcast era, two of the best OG Xbox games, the best new IP from last gen, to this:

I know lots of people think ME2's the pinnacle but that's the game I started to see a direction I wasn't wanting. Still good, but "Hey, what's up, this feels off".

In hindsight, I was fine with DA2, because I loved the narrative, even if the game itself suffered a lot, but they just don't seem to be able to recreate those original jolts like they used to. DAO was incredible, ME was incredible. I still, to this day, continue to forget DA:I and ME:A actually exist until someone says something about them and I'm like "Oh yeah, those..."

i liked 2 and 3 fine, well 3 with the fixed endings. though if they had all been like 1 though id have liked that even more, that was more distinctly bioware. would have preferred that. DA:I is def the weakest DA game for me, i fear for 4 for real.

I agree. ME2 I started to notice a really weird direction that just didn't feel right, especially the guns needing clips, just felt like a dumbed down generic 3rd person EA game. ME1 was the panicle of the searies for me even though it was by far the most unpolished of the 3. The lore, story, RPG system, and immersion wasn't ever matched after that game.

one of if not the last true bioware game i suppose.. 2 and 3 i still love because of the lore, characters especially and because they werent full on EA but it was getting there with ME3 and the loot boxes, and making multiplayer somewhat neccessary to the story if you wanted the best ending. you could do it without but you can only get your meter so high without multiplayer.

Yeah, 2 still had some great characters and IMO Thane was one of the best characters in any of the 3 games. I really like Mordin, Legion, and Grunt, they were all really cool well written characters as well. The entire Trilogy was really good but you could feel EA's seed slowly growing from 2 onward and, like you said, it became much more noticeable in ME3.

ya so noticable in 3 sadly, i was still excited for and played through it with all three of my shepherds though, very attached to ME series, and given a chance to play a 4k remastered complete trilogy id totally do it. id hope they would fix the meters in 3 that depended on MP though and make it not neccessary. thane was also the man, he was the only casuality for my brothers playthrough, i made triple sure to never lose anyone.. i loved them all too much.

I replayed ME1 probably 10 different times, then I think ME2 maybe 4-5 times (kept trying to get an achievement for not losing anyone, still kept losing someone at the end regardless of what I did), and ME3 only twice and the 2nd time was specifically achievement related. I would love an ME Trilogy remake and would buy it at full price in a heart beat, I just really wish that all 3 games would have played more like the first, if that were to have happened then I think it very well would have been the best trilogy ever in gaming. The RPG elements being completely stripped out in 2 really sucked.

ya imagine if they just kept refining the ME1 system.

how were you losing peeps in 2? as long as each of their loyalty missions are done i never lost anyone.

I have no idea how I was losing them, but when I attacked the hive I would always have to sacrifice one of the squad members. I did all the loyalty missions, had 100% paragon rating, everything I needed but something would always happen to where I would lose someone. It was often Zaeed that I ended up losing and after the 3rd or 4th playthrough trying for that 1 achievement I finally just said screw it and was done with the game.

Hmm.. that's interesting..even when you have to pick someone to hold them off for me they ended up making it since I'd done everything I was supposed to do, but it makes it seem like they won't when it happens.. As a mass effect conisuer this has me thinking lol.

Yeah, I don't know WTF was going on but I even went online to see if people were having similar issues and apparently some others were having the same problem. Some could fix it by doing certain things while some people were like me and screwed out of the achievement. Really actually pissed me off because I did 3 extra playthroughs I really didn't want to do.

Man, I remember MDK2 so well. I played it on the Dreamcast and whenever I think back about it...a feeling of frustration rises up from my gut. I can't remember what exactly about that game was rough, but it was either cheap or beyond my abilities at the time (that's likely). I recall replaying certain bits over and over and over and over again.... Maybe checkpoints were few and far between? But once I beat it I reveled in that glory for days...but traded the game away immediately the next day haha.

I remember being frustrated with MDK 2 too, but I only played it on Wii. I don't remember too much about the game itself besides almost being ready to give up a couple of times, but eventually I was able to beat it.

It had really tough platforming sections and the stages where you played as Kirk you had to be on point with sniping or you were going to have a rough life. The Dr. had some really tough stages as did the Dog. I really remember being stuck on certain parts for days at a time (no internet at the time) and the final boss seemed like he took around an hour to beat if you didn't die. I liked all the touches in the game, like when sniping you got a secondary screen that shows you on 3rd person so you avoid fireballs and other projectiles.

How does Monster Hunter play? I played one on the 3DS and it was suuuuuper grindy, you kind of just fought the same bosses over and over trying to get good drops to make new clothes and weapons. Does this one play the same?

i think everyone but me was in love with MHW, its pretty ok to play with friends though, but was a loot grind to me. borderlands is about the only loot grind game ive ever been able to play and really like.

Yeah that's kind of what I was thinking the game was so I'll probably pass on it. I just have way too many games to play and hardly any time to play as it is plus I'm moving in 2 months so time is even more restrictive than it usually would be because I have to get our house ready to put on the market in a little over 3 weeks from now.

Monster Hunter World was amazing. I lost a solid 2 months of my life to that game. Is addictive AF but must be played with at least 1 friend to appreciate. That's a solid list for GP as well.

everyone but me will give it ringing endorsements though, but there is something about the "feel" of capcom games that just dont quite resonate with me too.

edit: see..lol. it was more fun in MP for sure i will give it that.

Yeah, seems like a game that would be pretty fun in MP but I don't think I have anyone to reliably play online with at a moments notice.....and if I did I would love to play through RE5 again, loved that game in coop.

I never played more than a few minutes of 6, but my Brother and I played the hell out of 5. Coop was almost required because the AI companion had the worst AI in history. I loved that game though and would play through it in an instant.

Another solid month of games for Game Pass, one of the best deals in gaming today in my opinion. I'm looking forward to finally playing Prey, trying out Monster Hunter World (my first in the series) and finally jumping into those Life is Strange games. I still need to try out Vampyr and a few others from last month, I've been playing through Darksiders 3 and still keep playing Overwatch.

Prey is the only one that interests me. I have the rest or had. Monster Hunter is good but like someone said you need to play it with friends. I think EVERYONE needs to play Life is Strange. I picked it up super cheap on a PSN flash sale and I still need to finish the 2nd game.

Prey was an amazing experience for me. Some people didn'tike it for various reason but I just loved it. Enough to buy it on ps4 when it first released and I bought the deluxe version on Xbox when the mooncrash dlc released. It's kinda a mix between system shock, bioshock and dishonored. You can play thru the game numerous ways, depending on your play style. It's amazing what those devs can do

Oh yeah definitely, GP is far and away the best deal in gaming right now especially with the last 2-3 months them adding some pretty new AAA games like Tomb Raider, Just Cause 4, and now MHW. They're also going to have a promo here in the next few days where you can get a 3-month subscription for just $1`if you're not already a member. I got 1.5 years for free recently so I'm subbed up until next gen, but its a great deal for people on the fence.

Game Pass is the best. I don't use my Xbox as much as I should but I don't feel the need to buy any other games on Xbox because of this and it's a good feeling. Between this and Xbox Live, I'm set on games on the console.

There is certainly a point where you feel you've "caught up" with GamePass and are waiting on new things to be available. But even so it's still a crazy savings. I've been disappointed by several games (Just Cause 4, Hellblade)...so that's saved me $90 or so right there, and I still got to try them out at my leisure. That's nuts for $10/month.

Honestly, I'm in love with Hydro Thunder Hurricane which is a $15 digital game, so that pays for itself a few times over.

they've begun adding a lot more to GP also, I think this month its something like 10 games and if you don't buy much AAA games at launch then you have a ton of new content launching all the time, which is pretty sweet.

So the recent Star Wars hub-bub put me in the mood to play some Star Wars Battlefront 2. It's easy to hate on EA for their garbage points but I actually think the gameplay of BF2 is fun and the locations are interesting enough. But that's neither here nor there, because I fired up my Xbox One for the first time in months to find that the ORIGINAL Battlefront II is free on Games with Gold. What a wonderful surprise to find, downloading it now.

I imagine there are no multiplayer servers for this though, right? Which would be a shame, but I know that I had to play it via Steam with a stand-alone program that let you find fan servers for a long while so I'm pretty sure no more servers for the OG XBox version are still up despite it being available via backwards compatibility. Oh well, it'll be fun to revisit anyhow.

Looks like Obsidian was working on KoToR 3 back in the day but it was cancelled. Not sure if this was known already or not, but its the first I've heard about it. Some story elements are discussed and the game actually sounds like it would have been really cool:
