One of the biggest shocks of this year was the news that Bioware’s blockbuster success, Mass Effect 2, was coming to the PS3.
However straight away the big question was how would PS3 players catch up on the story of the original Mass Effect which isn’t yet being released on the PS3.
Bioware haven’t been saying and there is still no official response but a moderator over at the German Bioware forums has stated that they will be releasing an interactive comic that will be used to not only bring players up to speed on the story of Mass Effect but to also customise the story of Mass Effect 2.
It’s one of those great ideas that seem so logical after you hear it so I suspect this is going to be confirmed by Bioware any day now.

I was wondering myself how this would work and it is actually brilliant. Interactive comic means you can make decisions and the comic panels can respond accordingly which ends up providing you with an import save for ME2. Well done Bioware. Hopefuly they get a good artist and top notch voice acting from their actors to elicit the emotions from the reader that gamers experienced in the game. I guess ultimately that will be the toughest part. Hell get the Marvel guys that are doing the Stephen King Dark Tower series. Those guys are incredible and im actually loving those graphic novels.

Hmmm Interactive comic = Mass Effect 1? A game that was 20 hours plus minus summed up in an Interactive comic?Hahaha, I am really curious to see Bioware pull this one off.

Well if they like what they see in the interactive novel and are interested in playing Mass Effect then they can go get the superiror PC version that doesnt have massive framerate, tearing, stuttering problems and long load times :biggrin:

Lol long load times hey, PS3 fanboys should be used to those. I mean MGS4 has like a load screen after every 10 minutes of gameplay and has to install every 45 mins…
