Sign... Does it come with ME3's multiplayer???
No, they have omitted that from the Remaster, and thank fuck for that says I. They would probably make more people happy by just turning ME3s existing multiplayer back on - assuming it was shutdown.

I'd be more excited if ME1 had a proper gameplay overhaul, though freeing up weapon usage should make the other classes more bearable to play. Rather than just playing Soldier and then proxying all the tech/biotic skills you need from your squadmates.

Vanguard just isn't Vanguard without BIOTIC CHAAARGE.

I saw this thread and then decided to watch part of a ME2 youtube "movie", basically just all the cutscenes tied together in a row, and holy hot damn I hope in this collection they spend some time fixing up these cutscenes. At the time they were decent if not groundbreaking, but Bioware's awkward, squinty, over exaggerated and yet somehow plastic faces have super not aged well.

I was legitimately taken aback because I was extremely impressed with ME2 cutscenes when it came out, but now they feel almost uncanny valley to watch.

That is one of the key features mentioned in the collection's official website. I do hope it get's overhaul as well; Especially the hybrid classes

I’ve got closer than not to 1000 hours logged in Mass Effect 3. I remember silly details like that. Curing the Genophage is only a wise decision if there is a perfect storm of conditions. Lacking any of them makes it a far riskier prospect, and outright dangerous is Urdnot Wreav is in charge.
I forget if you actually got "war assets" from that. I just recall that logically "out of game" that I needed scientists over soldiers to figure out the catalyst (?) to be able to have a chance to win because there was no way the war would be won in battle even if the krogans magically multiplied in number. Of course, I knew the game wasn't going to have some salarian scientist be the key to figuring it out or winning the war because it's a game and all and you're not going to get locked out of a huge difference in the ending from a single decision, but that could potentially happen in the real world.

Yes, the multiplayer did give you War Assets. Quite a lot, actually. Iirc, you initially had to play the multiplayer to be able to get all endings because there weren't enough War Asset points in the base singleplayer. Tho the Extended Cut significantly lowered that threshold, and with the extra War Assets you can get from the singleplayer DLCs I'm pretty sure it would take intentionally fucking up main quests and not doing any side stuff to not get a high enough score for all the endings.

AAAAANNNNDDDDDD There goes what little respect I had left for BW.
Am confused. I read it, but the words in the article are mostly about how the first game is being kept on par with the later two. Only mentions the dev briefly talking about moment about a camera focusing on a butt, then says there is no list at all of the changes. Talks about not changing character models too. I see no attempt at looking saintly or any other changes, the headline appears to be worded just to...wait a second...other headlines on the site include such beauties as;

And a tab entirely devoted to "Censorship" with a cacophany of predictable wonders within. It's just a rage-bait site doing what rage-bait sites do best for angry young men.

Spoken truly ignorant of the work required.
If you check the link I gave that's literally what they said were the problems. I guess if you want to call someone ignorant you should tell that to the dev interviewed, I mean what does he know, he only work on the game.

I heard that. Vanguard for life!

I'd welcome shooting mechanics improvement as much as anyone else, but PLEASE, fix the inventory management in 1.
Please fucking Christ yes.

I loved that multiplayer, you get to play so many characters, granted if they made a Mass Effect 3 where you get to pick what species, and combat class I would totally buy it.

Stop just doing humans, I want to play as a Turian Ghost Infiltrator.

I still think they'd be better off just reactivating Mass Effect 3's multiplayer, that way no one has to get their favourites again

Normally, I wouldn't give two shits either. It's just cutscenes. But it's the way that they are defending themselves. They try to sound this was some sort of saint-like decision, when we all know they are pandering.

Oh well, I'm sure everyone who's crying about it will not give a shit when they get their hands on the collection
yeh I'm not going to buy the collection. I'll stick with the old games thanks. You know the ones that have no issue with sexy characters in an M rated game and don't think they're saving the world by trying to hide women's arses.


In situations like this it’s always best to say something like “We reviewed the material, man was it cringe inducing. We’re gonna trim it a little, make it less embarrassing to watch”

Because if I remember most reviews of all three games, and DragonAge as well, most people were pointing just how cringe and awful they were. Miranda’s was a particular target of mockery because they literally fuck in the engine room. In what would be full view of Ken, Gabby, and Tali and hearing shot of Jack.
You know what would be progress?

Restore the uncensored sex scene that were planned in 2 before Fox News managed to scare Bioware into trying to tone down an M rated game.

Ok coming back to this thread with possible new info.

The changes MAY just be in scenes based on the context. E.G. no more ass focused shots in scenes meant to be serious. Basically like 2 scenes the rest of the Ass shots might remain the same plus a few changes to how Femshep sits when wearing a dress that make sense.

The question now is do you trust Bioware on what they say?

I mean how is that Anthem 2.0 release we totally have got already or are getting regular updates on and doesn't seem like it's been swept under the rug hoping people would forget about?

That question remains regardless of Miranda's cheecks, or lack thereof.

Personally, i trust enough to not preorder, and wait and see how it turns out. Butt that's every game.

I was fine with the ending as well, it wasn't great, but it was far from the festering dumpster fire that everyone made it out to be, when they had their internet temper tantrums, flinging shit everywhere.

Even with the DLC, they still hated the series though, and would still shit on it, mostly due to just the ending. Which is why I find it funny that people are excited about the legacy thingy. I mean, it's still the same series, with the same ending, that was apparently shit back then, and would, in theory, still be shit now. But hey, new paint job, and the booby physics will make the cringy sex scenes more exciting for people who don't know about pornhub I guess. Yay? Just seems stupid to me.

Every time people get that ridiculous over an ending or whatever artistic choice for a piece of entertainment, it’s too easy to cringe at the thought of them breeding. Or worse, already having bred.

Eh, on the sliding scale of things to lose your shit over, I'll take "is too invested in video game boobies than they should be" over some of the more lethal shit people who breed are overlyinvested in.

I mean yeah, in my utopia, they'd all be civil and even-keel about all things. But at least they aren't storming centers of government because of the Buttroversy of Miranda.
