    Bioware concluded its epic Mass Effect trilogy earlier this year, capping off a series that began back in 2007. Ending-rending aside, the series received has great adulation and praise from both critics and fans alike.

    With Shepard's story concluded, many wondered what would be next for the franchise. Well, it seems like we may have our answer.

    With an incredibly richly detailed universe, there is a wide range for possibilities open for the franchise. Will it attempt to follow after the narrative of ME3, perhaps to soothe the crunched colons of outraged fans? Or will it take us backwards, reveling in what can only be called a "loregasm"?

    Only time will tell, though personally, my money's on dance simulator.

    I played and beat the first game...the mining mini game in the second pissed me off enough to not pick it up again.

    I tried the first game for about an hour or something and didn't really like it. Just a personal preference, it seemed like a pretty decent game. I just can't stand most RPGs for more than about an hour... And that includes stuff like Skyrim which nearly the whole world seems to love.

    There is absolutely no way I'd play or even watch that being played.

    Honestly, I hope this will be a prequel, but not be titled Mass Effect 4. I'd like to see the beginning of the story, pull a Halo Reach. Show us what happened before Shepard. Then at the end, show Shepard getting ready for the events in Mass Effect 1.

    I've got 1+2 (steam sales) but haven't started them... was over at a friend's house yesterday and he was playing the first one in preparation for getting the second from gamefly, so I watched him play a bit (between farting on his cat and his son) and the series really looks like something I should get started on.

    I got warned about the elevators already.

    Eh, it's not that big of a deal. No worse than the loading times on the WiiU's OS. It's just a way to mask the loading times for the game... think of it as shooting the doors in Metroid Prime.

    Don't have a Wii U and haven't played the Prime series... but if it's for loading then I guess that's better than a static screen.

    I think it SHOULD have Shepard in it, ether a prequel or even another sequel. It just won't feel like Mass Effect without Shepard....... Unless, maybe a spinoff game about Garrus, Grunt or Wrex. I could deal with a Mass Effect game like that.
