The Mass Effect
franchise has set the bar high for sci-fi RPGs of our era. With Mass Effect 3 just
around the corner we wanted to get some more info on the game while we
had the chance. We caught up with Michael Gamble of BioWare who is the
Associate Producer of the game.
VG247 recently got their mitts around BioWare for an interview, where a figure that most of us will call into question was released -- only 18% of players pick a female Shepard in the Mass Effect series. Now, how many of us have female characters in MMOs? Go on, raise your hands. There are lots of us (myself included in a few games) that prefer a female to a male avatar in MMOs, but the largely console-based audience for this series seems to think otherwise.
For our latest preview of Mass Effect 3, we look at the importance of player choice, and if the final installment in the trilogy can raise the bar on one of the most epic opening sequences in modern gaming.
