I just read that Mass Effect 2 has been announced for the PS3 and due to release in January 2011. While this is fantastic news for PS3 owners...what about Mass Effect?
Mass Effect 2 is a great game on it's own but without playing Mass Effect and being able to import a character and storyline, they will be missing some important appeal of the game. You won't have the Mass Effect 2 game reading your past decisions and creating a personalized game based on that. Instead you'll get the intuitive game that will try to guess what you would have done in Mass Effect. Too bad really.
Now I wish they'd hurry and release Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC for Mass Effect 2. I need a fix.
