GS News - Will Half-Life 3 be revealed? Is Mass Effect Coming to Next-Gen?
Bioware are considering the Mass Effect trilogy for Xbox One and PS4, Microsoft are experimenting with graphics, and what will Gabe Newell reveal on Reddit?

I haven't been on GS in awhile, I like the new videos with Jess. She seems much more excited and comfortable, Then when she first started! I approve! Keep up the good work!
I'd buy the Mass Effect trilogy on PS4. Sure, I've got in on the 360 but eventually that will be phased out for an Xbox One. At least, that was the plan last summer.
I've played each Mass Effect about three or four times. I'd love to see what a revised version looks like, but I don't think I could play though them again. I'd much rather have that effort put into a new game.
The graphic wars will never end the trolls will keep coming on both sides once xbox makes there photorealistic engine then sony will make there's and it will be about who's more photo perfect, I'm just looking forward to playing the games that uses it.
It is more impressive to get gold on a Ps4 alone than on 3 systems together. I am surprised that the gap between Titanfall and Infamous isn't bigger. After all, Titanfall is the big flag ship for the xbo and EA pushes it like crazy oO I even got Crysis 3 because I preordered it for free oO
Things like new graphic features (dynamic lighting, shadows, ambient occlusion) are cool and all but those should come AFTER THE FACT of the basic and foremost image resolution!
The number one killer of graphics is when an image is "upscaled" to fit a monitor. Than you lose the crisp pixel per pixel aspect of gaming.
I think 1080p at 60fps should be the BARE MINIMUM of "next gen" consoles.. Fancy graphic rendering techniques should than follow.
Mass Effect for the next gen consoles -- GREAT!!
Half Life. Never played it! Hopefully they'll make a new Left 4 Dead game.
Great show Jess. *A big kiss on the cheek*
H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y J E S S!!
*Confetti is thrown*
*Firework goes off*
What did the ice cream say to the birthday cake?
"What's eating you?"
Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what the hell happened!
"The secret to staying young is the eat health, exercise, live honestly, and lie about your age."
"Age is simply a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."
Mass Effects multiplayer is all i care about, new and better please. Which would just need a whole new game, but for fun include the reapers.
The Mass Effect trilogy is one of the best told stories in games. I'd love to re-experience that all over again on the next gen.
But what would really make my day is knowing Bioware is working on the next Mass Effect title.
If Bioware released a complete Mass Effect trilogy set (by which I mean with all DLC included) in higher-def on next-gen, I'd definitely buy it. Greatest gaming experience of my life!
Mass Effect is one of my favorite games. Already have the trilogy so I won't be picking it up again. I'm not really into buying games more than once. Exception being Halo Anniversary. Hoping Halo 2 Anniversary will make it to 360.
OO yea Got a jump on this as soon as its released. Thanks Jess for the heads up now I gotta find out if this was a really huge Troll announcement or wat? I'm betting nothing at all to do with Hl3 but lets see.
UPDATE: NOTHING happened. No AMA. No Gabe. Nothing. a big old FU to everyone interested
There is nothing special about the Xbox One hardware, so there's no reason to believe they will miraculously pull off some miracle of graphics. It's the same basic architecture of a PC, and also of course the PS4.
And don't say cloud :). Latency and other network issues will not allow for it, at least not anytime soon. Completely offloaded, such as games being fully run on the server and only sending video to the user (like OnLive or Sony's upcoming PS3 game streaming), that's another story, but generally that means somewhat poor video quality which could negate any gains in graphical capability.
@balto70 i have played 2,3 on xbox and have the trilogy for pc with a graphics card superior to the ps4. the differences will be 60fps for both consoles and graphics wise i have had them all in max settings and the difference between xbox 360 and pc isnt that big to be honest they have never been demanding games.
@rodoxthedark Yeah but since the developers will probably yet again neglect the story and gameplay for those photo realistic effects I'll probably stick to the games that don't use it.
@dannydopamine28 Next Gen consoles don´t have the capability to run ray tracing on top of other graphical details... unless there is some new form of processing or some kind of revolutionary piece of code... MS's is once again spewing bullshit instead of focusing on games .
@dannydopamine28 It should be 720p 60fps for minimum, 1080p 85fps for default. That should be the case. ;D
@SaintsRowLA You were dead to me the moment i read "half life never played it"
@SaintsRowLA What did I just say?
@SaintsRowLA Take it easy buddy
@SYNAESTHE5IA I second that for sure! Awesome trilogy!
@RicanV I did spot that ;)
Sorry, I haven't played every game. I'm too busy. I only started playing video games back in 2009.
@tempertress @RicanV Cutie Jess and I both born on March 3rd, I could almost swear 1/2 my relatives were born in March. It was really weird to learn my cousins bf was born even on the same year and date ... possibly around the same time(not weird like in that "DOUBLE RAINBOW!!" way.)
I went out for sushi, God i love sushi.
Happy birthday, Jess.
@sunyatanada76 I'm in southern Los Angeles County. Maybe we'll meet some day.
I big hug. In Spirit, a big, warm loving hug with every ounce and cell of my being to you.
Have a great day.
@SaintsRowLA Don't hide your feelings anymore will you be my bff?
I am full of love and compassion, especially for you. I didn't want to get too mushy.
Nobody on this earth give a better embrace than I do.
*In Spirit, a big eternal embrace for Sunya. Our bodies, mind and souls melting into each other* For a long long long time.
*You could sit on my lap, you right shoulder pressing against my body, your face resting on my chest, with my arm wrapped around you in perfectly safe and loving refuge.*
@Vexov Happy Birthday to you too, bro ;D
