I thought the mako was really fun in ME1, even though the handling could be wobbly at times :)

"Years away". Guess I got time to make another ME1-3 character then.

Nice. This is what I asked for when they released that fan survey a few weeks ago.

I actually like this. I thought the Mako was kinda fun in ME1 although the exploration did get a bit tedious. If they can refine that away, I think it could be great.

Not looking forward to the Mako returning, but the ME people are a smart bunch and I'm sure they can figure a way to make it less tedious. The worst news though unsurprising is that it's all years away. If only we had similar sources for the next Fallout and TES games.

ME2 was the best. ME1 needs a new graphical coat of paint and had the same hideout buildings over and over. The cutscenes at the end of ME3 make better sense now but still inferior to it's predecessor.

Mass Effect 1 was easily my favorite of the 3. I really hope Bioware take their time with this and give us a huge game that is heavily influenced by what made the first game so great. 


...and the Mako? It should never have been excluded from the other ME games and instead improved upon.

I am still mad.  I will always be mad.  On my deathbed I will still be mad.  When the seas heat up and the world descends into global catastrophe I will still be mad.  In the afterlife, when I get to the gates of Heaven, St. Peter and his angels will ask me "Are you still mad about ME 3?" And my reply will be "Yes."  When the race of man is no more and the ruins of cities have crumbled into dust I will still be mad.  Ancient alien civilizations will find the smoldering, volcanic corpse of the Earth and decode the ancient secrets of the Internet and they will find this post and so my eternal anger will be brought forth into the far-flung reaches of outer space.  When the last tiny flash of heat in the universe dies and all descends into entropy, my hatred will remain.

If it handles like the original Mako, then YUCK! XD

That would be so dumb though... They have to make it great this time...

I liked Mass Effect 1 for its larger exploration element and the larger variety of weapons, armor, gadgets, etc. So them bringing the Mako back while stating exploration is a large element of the new game is getting me excited.

Awesome, Kudos to Bioware, I asked for visual customization of the ship, but they gave me mako customization. I take it they'll do the same for the shape. Good job in listening to the fans.

I was ambivalent toward the Mako in Mass Effect; looks like I'll have to get used to for the next game.

@TazmanianD yep, there was something enchanting about breezing through the alien landscape in the Mako, watching alien stars shine during the night, even better were the few story specific missions like Novaria...it got a quite a bit repetitive as the non-story planets were mostly empty, if they could fill them out with something and make them feel unique, so rather allows less planets for Mako, but each of them unique, then it would be awesome

@XBlade1X

I know, some people are saying it was tedious but I loved the whole exploring thing on the planet's surfaces. It felt really good and I was gutted that they removed it from ME2 to put in that flying thing, what was it called again? The Hammer-Head, I think?

@RossRichard Meh, the problem was not the Mako itself, it was the long, monotonous experience...

@guydude3412  That would be epic, especially if you could play them as one game by choosing it in the options menu, if they enhanced the visuals and added features like they did when releasing ME1 on PC it would be epic, I would just play right through like it was one long game.

They always have been. Sometimes a day or two after other sites. By then again, I have seen it happen visa versa

Honestly, I forget about PC because I don't have one I play games on. But you are right. Xbox one, ps4, PC all in HD

I agree. That is what I am going to do when master chief collection comes out. All four games on legendary

@guydude3412  I know I've just noticed they are especially late the last few days, maybe some of the GS staff are taking their vacation time.

That's true, it is July. There is also less news in the summer, so they might have less staff as well
