Oh Noes, Mass Effect 3 Muliplayer Announcement

I know gamers go nuts for multiplayer, but I’m not one of those. I’m a solo girl, making major exceptions for Rainbow Six: Vegas, bitches!

As much as I trust BioWare in the RPG department, the announcement of multiplayer in Mass Effect 3 has slightly dampened my enthusiasm for the game.

Games that have great single player campaigns don’t need to tack on multiplayer to cater to the rest of the market. I’m not saying that’s what BioWare has done—I haven’t played the game therefore wouldn’t know, but the cynic in me is slightly worried.

Especially when I read this quote:

Success in multi-player will have a direct impact on the outcome of the single player campaign.

Noo! I usually skip multiplayer altogether, for various reasons, but it looks to be a crucial factor in one of my most anticipated games. Although BioWare are insistent it won’t compromise the single player campaign, and at least playing with friends solves the stupid AI issues I faced in Mass Effect 2.

I really pray it doesn’t fuck up what was already a near perfect franchise.

Heyo, I'm Ashley. I like video games, photography, and my dog, Indie.
