Mass Effect 2 shows its Dark Side.

1 min read


The second instalment of the Mass Effect series is well on its way, except, it doesn’t look as though it’s going to hit the same stellar impact that the first game had. If you’ve already watched the demise-filled teaser trailer (or last week’s E3 sneak peek), then you know what I’m talking about. This time around BioWare  apparently decided that they need some evil in their lives, hence the announcement by the series producer, Casey Hudson, that ME 2 will be the series’ “dark act,” who sees the game as:

“an opportunity to really explore the tougher, more brutal parts of the universe.”

Hudson went on to describe the themes of the Mass Effect trilogy’s story arc, explaining,

“In the first act you put a guy in the tree, in the second act you throw rocks at him, and in the third act you get him down.”

So who exactly are we throwing rocks at again? Anyway, I am still excited about the next episode in the trilogy, simply because the first one impressed me so much. Will it be an utter let down? Maybe? Maybe not? I’m still packing my pulse rifle into my overnight bag…just in case.

    About time the dark side of the force engulfs the galaxy… wait, this aint Star Wars!

    Might make the gameplay more sinister which could be a good thing, tired of playing the good guys all the time! :devil:

    Well, at the end of ME 1 I left the council to die. They should have listened to me when I gave them a chance. :whistle:

    Besides, I hope it gives you a choice like inFamous or Sacred 2 do if you want to go the dark path or the light path.

  • Can’t wait for this,because the first one surprised the
    heck outa me just how much I enjoyed it.Never thought
    I’d enjoy it as much as I did,because it was more RPG
    than I like in my games.
