Mass Effect 3 To Bring The Lulz

1 min read


Mass Effect 2 was – aside from some playful banter betwixt joker and Edi -  largely dark and ominous in tone. According to BioWare’s Casey Hudson in an interview with OXM, the third game in the series may just do a “Return of the Jedi,” bringing a little more light-heartedness.

"The second story in a trilogy is where you traditionally end up in a fairly dark place. The third story is where you try and bring some fun and lightness back into it," said Hudson.

"One thing we tried to do with Mass Effect 2 was as well as bringing in the more mature stuff, we also tried to bring in a lot more humor so that we can go to these places without making it an overbearing experience. I think we have a lot more fun this time through characters like Joker and EDI."

Continuing, he says that "Mass Effect 3 is going to be the epic conclusion … so, a lot more darkness but also a lot more humor."

So there you go. ME3 is going to be funnier. Let’s just hope they don’t try too hard – and there are no Ewoks or characters like Jar-Jar Binks.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
