Gone Gold - Mass Effect Legendary Edition

A tweet from Mac Walters has word from BioWare's project director on Mass Effect Legendary Edition that the Mass Effect trilogy remake is now gold. Presumably that means it's on track for its planned release date of May 14th. Here's word:
Mass Effect Legendary Edition has gone GOLD! It's been quite a journey - time to celebrate briefly. Maybe even dance a little... if that's you're thing.

I want it because I never realized playing Evil FemShep was so damn fun until I think ME2 or 3. Was she as much fun to play in ME1?

Evil shep was ALWAYS amazing, and had some of the best scenes imo


No not evil Shep, FemShep was funny as hell. There is a scene where she convinced a drunk Volvus to charge with his almost non-existant biotic powers.... "charge..... *sigh*" lol


I never experience these things because I always play the idiot good guy... i need to branch out more.

History for the younglings: "Gone Gold" back in the 90s meant the game was in it's finished debugged state and put on a gold master disc and sent to the duplicators for putting into the retail boxes that you bought in person at a physical store. You had to play whatever the final code was, no day-one patches, no hot-fixes, no downloadable content, no lockboxes, etc. The game had to work the first time, for everyone, which is just amazing by today's standards.

That's not entirely true, I remember Hero's Quest 4: Shadows of Darkness had a zero day patch, I'm not sure if the internet existed in Netscape Navigator/Webcrawler form, but I did "connect" and "download" a fix. Of some kind. That Katrina...

I... I... I am Nicolai. Have you seen my Anna? I am looking for my Anna.

This I must first do. The sacrifice of life, for one of love.

My God that game was the best. I think I never finished it. Got stuck somewhere. But man I replayed that game a trillion times. It had an amazing, magical and mystical vibe to it. It was one of the best games I had ever played as a kid.

It was probably a lot easier before PCs became as diverse as they are today, and games were still mostly running in DOS with no programs running concurrently other than a memory manager, a disk cache and a few drivers. But even so, games didn't always work smoothly, even back when most people couldn't get the patches from FTP. Off the top of my head, I can remember Elite First Encounters, Ultima VIII & IX, Daggerfall and Battlespire all being extremely buggy.

Hey kids! Pay twice for the same game! Demonstrate what suckers you are and we'll do this for every property we own and put every developer we bought out of business!

Honestly people, you're morons if you pay for this.

I'm twelve, I never owned the original Mass Effect Trilogy. Should I wait to buy this or buy the originals? Thanks in advance, I don't want to be a sucker.
Dear twelve.
You sound very intelligent, so much so that I almost mistook you for a 13 year old.
Purchase the originals if you are cash constrained , you'll save some money.
Otherwise wait for the LE release.

Thanks, young dumb and full of 12 year old cum in Brentwood.

You pick your origin story in the first one, and I decided on ruthless and sole survivor - or something to that effect. I wasn't evil *per se* but most of my choices were renegade, "get the job done" choices, I think the biggest good/bad are deciding if you're pro-human. If you're pro-human you'd likely kill Wrex.

Well that remains to be seen. Under no circumstances should you pre-order the remakes. EA doesn't deserve that kind of trust. No AAA publishers do.

I started this series by the 2nd game and after looking into it, I never gotten the first one since it was pretty cluncky and reviews were meh.

So I would not feel bad now for buying the full updated series for the price of once game to check out the full story.

It's not like every gamer in the world already owns these games.

I really want this to be good. But this is EA so...

Still, Fallen Order and Squadron were surprisingly good, so who knows.
