I think it's a decent idea, but i would rather have a game, say Mass Effect 3, have all the effort put into the story and gameplay mechanics rather than online multiplayer. Although Mass Effect multiplayer would be awesome!
FUCK, so that's what they mean by the "far reaching" for mass effect. Online play, booo.
And only a complete retard could say Mass Effect MP would be anything but complete garbage. Hello, how is the combat again? Sorry but hawk you are nothing but a MP retard. Not everything needs MP, and almost all the games out there with MP, shouldn't have MP because it sucks.
MP would only take away from the actual game. Man how I hate MP retards like hawk, where ever game must have MP. Stop ruining gaming tyvm, oh and diaf.
No. Just no. This is a terrible move on EA's part. I'm not saying a game can't have multiplayer, but there are some games that just don't warrant more than one person playing at a time. Forcing all of their development studios to do this will more than likely lessen the overall quality of their titles.
im suprised you guys are not talking about the dlc. dlc almost always costs, so the way i see it now they are gonna take every little bit of extra out of the game and now you will have to pay even more for it. Nothing but a money grab.
Yup another greedbag company who will suck as much money out of their releases as possible.
now not only will you pay $50 or so but you will also get charged to download DLC which you may need to play said game and then the multiplayer part which do not be surprised if it is tied into their company servers to make you pay more.
Financially, it is a sound decision. They release a shell of a game for $60, then sell the bits they chopped off for $10. Before you know it, they've made $20-$40 more off you because the only redeeming factor is the online play, where the bandwagon community almost requires you to buy the latest DLC to play with them. The model has worked for year in MMOs.

Because your a idiotic cheap ass? MMO xpacks as DLC? Ya xpacks that can nearly double the content of a game is really DLC not worth 30-40 dollars. ROFL.
As much I would hate having Mass Effect and other games like it with multiplayer, I'm not going around talking stupidity.
