Ever since the panel at San Diego Comic Con has started, we haven't gotten much information lately. However, sites like Reddit and Twitter have been leaking out information. Slowly but surely. Here's what I found so far. I'll add more in time, so keep an eye out for any information.
Some tweets from Nerd Appropriate:
- @masseffect #SDCC - Bioware Edmonton and BioWare Montreal are both committed to making a great game -MG
- @masseffect #SDCC - There have always been challenges (going game to game) - (attempting to make) a spiritual successor -MG
- @masseffect #SDCC - Frostbite engine has allowed the team to do a lot more than ever before.
- @masseffect #SDCC - on multiplayer - It was born out of the idea of playing as various races in the ME uni…

Ok now here's question that I've been wondering ever since I learned that you can bypass wrex when he finds out you sabotaged the genophage cure using Mass effect leviathan terminals. The question is if you successfully bypass Wrex as outlined on the quest page for Priority Citadel III, do you still keep the krogan war assets you would normally lose by sabotaging the cure with Wrex as leader?
Without actually testing it myself it would seem plausible since he still appears before you on Earth and since Wrex isn't dead, it would seem like krogan forces don't fragment and weaken your total war assets.
the second question is if you bypass wrex using this method and he appears before you on earth as if the genophage was actually cured does it af…Read more >
Mass Effect: Next is comming and I wish there were some improvements.
- Volus companion or drell companion or batarian companion, but I still like quarians
- Interrupts present in ME2 and ME3 replaced by dialogue wheel with time limit, so I could know what am I going to do. When I used paragon interrupt in Zaeed's mission I expected just to scold him, not to hit him.
- Negotiations as proper choice of words not just charisma vel reputation. It would make conversations more realistic and seeking middle ground harder but more satisying. Of course not enough charisma would still result negotiations unavailable.
- Return of neutral 3 opinions in dialogue wheel, I don't always want to be naive good-natured altruist or agressive bastard. To some matters I a…
Engineers don't usually get to spray the room with bullets a la Rambo, but they can win battles in their own sneaky way. This post is just a personal collection of my favourite Engineer moments, taken from ME, ME2 and ME3, on Insanity mode. Updates will be on-going.
Tech powers didn't play as much of a part in my playing style in Mass Effect as they did in the later games. It was satisfying going through mostly with a pistol and (on later playthroughs) a sniper rifle, although Electronics and Damping certainly got used a lot in close quarters. In ME2 especially, however, I went through several missions without firing a single shot. Other missions, containing enemies that tried to flank me, required the occasional single headshot to fin…

Just thought I'd post this here, Mike Gamble and some other devs are doing a panel on the next Mass Effect game at SDCC in late July:

Charting a Course: Developing the Next Mass Effect
Mass Effect developers from the Edmonton and Montreal studios discuss what it's like to expand on a well-established and beloved video game franchise. Panelists Carl Boulay (lead animator), Fabrice Condominas (producer), Mike Gamble(producer), Noel Lukasewich (senior artist), and Jessica Merizan (community manager), share their experiences in shaping the next Mass Effect game with new possibilities while staying true to t…Read more >
OK so here's the deal.according to the released trailer,we'll be having another N7 associated character.now, by the end of ME3, we see a break down of all galactic synthetic technologies, which we can assume will lead to a break down of governing systems. so if we're having N7 again,what does it mean for game's timeline? is it in the past,or some future when damages are repaired and a galactic society is restored.and if so,how is it that the N7 program has survived? Ideas people?Read more >
As I said before, I think I like Mass Effect out of all the RPGs I know for it's good story, music, direct combat, tasteful romances, clear morality guide, and the possibility to find favorable options. To me, Fire Emblem is okay, The Witcher among other things is interesting, Fable is good, while Mass Effect is great. What do any of you think? Please be civil.Read more >
Mass Effect (Spoiler Free)
Hello and welcome to my mass effect review for xbox 360, now i got this game in December 2013. Yeah im very late, however i have finished all the mass effect games and i absolutely love them.
Beginning: Mass Effect starts of with with ambassador Udina and Anderson talking about the new spectre candidate Shepard, in one of the most amazing intros i have ever seen. You start on board the Normandy and interact and find information by having conversations with other Characters, which is a very cool feature.
Story: The story is about Shepard and her/his depending on which gender you choose to be,is about a rouge spectre called Saren, a turian hell bent on destroying humanity and releasing a ancient race called the reape…Read more >
OK i think we have reached this conclusion many times over that mass effect universe's wiki deserves a lot more attention and much more activity, and since I'm too lazy to think about ideas! or too short on time to follow any of the ideas I don't actually have,I'd say let's put our heads together,and think of a few ways that we can try to give mass effect the attention it deserve,and see how we can carry them out.so don't be shy,let's hear what you guys think and what you think we can do for our wiki.

- A good, compelling story.
- A compelling premise. ME3 was the first and only game that I stood line for at a midnight launch. I did that not for graphics or gameplay but to experience the Reaper War. By comparison, my biggest problem with Dragon Age II was that there was no real impetus tying everything together. Have a real purpose that goes beyond just being a day in the life.
- Emotion. Mass Effect has made me laugh, given me goosebumps, and almost made me cry. I want more of that.
- Great characters. One of the biggest draws about Mass Effect and Dragon Age is in the interesting characters that you fall in love with.
- Dialogue. Mass Effect is full of great lines from the funny, to the badass, to the epic, to the touching, to t…
- A good, compelling story.
See here. Note that the video also includes footage from the new IP as well. What do you think?
Some things I've noticed:
Prothean pyramids? They certainly don't look like Egyptian pyramids (other than shape. This is the first time I've seen three Prothean pyramids together. There's also light coming from them. I get the feeling this is a new world or at least a new part of an existing world.
"To go somewhere new." Also a shot of an updated version of system navigation. I really like how the navigation looks in terms of movement, placement of celestial bodies, etc.
Our new hero? Note the N7 logo. This seems to contradict the statements that you will not be a military character. This also really narrows down the timelin…Read more >
E3 2014 begins Tuesday. Wikipedia has a list of games that are supposed to be showcased. Which one's are you excited about or at least interested in? I'm interested in the following games:

Although the actual interest in a collective reading of the novels didn't reflect the impression from the initial blog and chat responses, the MEBC still draws breath! The discussion of Ascension took place in chat only, but we would like to announce the start of Retribution in case anyone would like to hop on board.
Retribution introduces Kai Leng and deals with events directly referenced in Mass Effect 3, such as the gruesome Reaper tech implantations we get a glimpse of in Priority: Horizon. Retribution also offers insight into the (master)minds of Aria T'Loak and The Illusive Man, and further expands on Anderson and Kahlee's history.
The first passage comprises everything up to chapter 7, i.e. the prologue and chapters 1 through 6. We wil…Read more >
Greetings Mass Effect Community,
Wikia is excited to announce our E3 2014 coverage. All week long, Wikia and several Wikia Stars will be representing you the fans at the most exciting video game show in the world. We want to include you every step of the way, starting with bringing your fan questions to the show along with us. What are you excited to see most at E3? If we get a chance to speak to the developers and publishers of your favorite games, what do you want us to ask them? We can't promise we will be able to ask all of your questions, but we will do our best to get you heard by the creators themselves. Let us know your questions in the comments below and be sure to let us know what you want to see most at this year's E3.

Enter Shepard, who, sometime during two shuttle flights and a chat with TIM, has apparently utterly forgotten how to fight.
"Urgh! Argh! Eeeaarrgh!"
"Do you hear that?" Jacob asks, displaying a finely-honed sense of both timing and mockery. "Sounds like FENRIS Mechs."
Shepard does not, in fact, hear anything through the red haze of impending death, but gets the gist through subtitles.
"Please cease your hostile behaviour," a LOKI mech requests politely, shooting Shepard several times.
"Urgh! Argh! Eeeaarrgh!"
Shepard zooms in, fires Overload at the LOKI mech, then fires her heavy pistol until the clip runs out. There is progress: she is sure the red crosshairs appear once or twice.
The LOKI mech stu…Read more >

As the discussion winds down for the Mass Effect: Evolution comic it is time to turn our attention to the next item on our reading list. Mass Effect: Revelation, the first novel in the Mass Effect series by Drew Karpyshyn, serves to expand upon the shared history of David Anderson and Saren Arterius while introducing characters and themes vital to Alliance history and Council politics.
This post will serve as the discussion space for the initial readings, the prologue and chapters 1 through 3. Hopefully everyone is as excited as we are to delve into the backstory of the Mass Effect series. Happy reading!

Since we are doing the works in chronological order for the regular MEBC, we decided to launch a special edition dedicated solely to the treatment of the ongoing Mass Effect: Foundation comic series.
The 9th issue was released a couple of days ago, leaving readers everywhere perplexed: can an adult salarian's cranial horn grow back once it's been broken off (only for it to be nicked again not much later), or did Mac Walters reckon history needed rewriting? Put simply: what the hell did we just read?
The STG mission where Mordin loses his horn was supposedly already detailed in the Shadow Broker's archived report, which makes it impossible for these mission accounts to be valid simultaneously. The discrepancies entail implications in regards …Read more >
People on reddit/or on this wikia take this seriously:
Reddit Page About Cat Liara
I wasn't the first to do that as if you take a look at my profile pic, which I found on Google image search, is a cat liara...
It's a dumb joke thing based on boredom. And fyi it's category is under user images, it's not an actual thing. I'm just messing/joking around.
And I've explained my wikia name before.
Shepard because I was joining the ME Wikia, and cat because I'm really dumb on names so I thought of one of my favorite animals, thus this.
But anyways I only found out about it due to some on my friends here on the ME chat. lol..

Whether from a dusty bookshelf or long-lost folder on a hard drive, the time has come to pull out the novels and dig up the comics. Originally an idea by YamiX0, the Mass Effect Book Club brings together seasoned devotees and sprightly newcomers for a chronological readthrough of the series – and you are invited!
Starting with Mass Effect: Evolution, the comic providing an outline to the Illusive Man's background along with a peek into the fabled First Contact War, each participant will individually read a certain work or passage in a pre-determined period of time. The group will then assemble to exchange views on the selected reading through comments on the respective blog post, and possibly in Chat.

I only got into Mass Effect recently (okay, a year ago) and I only beat ME3 for the first time three months ago (I went near-full paragon, synthesis ending, if that matters to anyone). I was not as disappointed as most (mainly because I knew what I was in for ahead of time), and actually liked the majority of the ending(s), but that part with the catalyst just pissed me off. So this is how I'd fix it:
1. Replace the Star-Kid (I refuse to call him the Catalyst, as I believe Shepard was the actual Catalyst) with Harbinger in hologram form (similar to the end of Arrival). Harbinger has already been established as the leader of the Reapers. We don't need to have a last second new reaper leader thrown in. Even if Harbinger said the exac…Read more >
I'm just wondering if there are any other Xbox players out there willing to join me on Mass Effect 3's multiplayer?
I'm thinking of doing a full run through of every map in the game in campaign order at some point in the future, varying the difficulty as we go, and I'm looking for a group of experienced players to join me.

Pretty nifty article that suggests they may release remastered games to help tide us over until mass effect 4..or whatever they'll call it.

The trilogy has concluded 2 years ago with another addition to the story being on the way in the near or distant future, yet I can't help but feel that quite a few questions have been left unanswered in the story.
So I asked myself what seems to be the most reasonable explanation to these unanswered questions, to both me and the rest of the Mass Effect community.
How exactly did Cerberus find about Bakara on Sur'Kesh and the turian bomb on Tuchanka? The female krogan is being kept on a top secret salarian base and the bomb has been buried for over a thousand years and kept just as much of a secret, yet Cerberus just happens to know where to look for them? Yes I know that there was a passing mention of a salarian traitor that contacted them, …

Anyhow, as you might have guessed, this blog (surprises me they haven't removed this) is about Origin, the revered software thingy made by The best company in America, EA. What im wondering here is, how is it? Im planning on getting it becuse reasons and considering how much crap i've heard about it (on sites like youtube mind you) it seems to be absolute shis. So is it something worth using? Or will it just help thy devil span EA to conquer the world and all that?

Since Wikia offers a blog, may as well use said blog right? XD
The number one thing that has been on my mind whenever I think of Mass Effect is likely the same as everyone else's: What is Mass Effect 4 (Which, for simplicity's sake, is what I'm calling it here.) going to be? I have read many a forum, blog, and whatever else I can find speculating on it. All we really know is four things:
1) It is likely not to be called Mass Effect 4
2) Shepard will not be in it, as his story is over according to BioWare.
3) The game uses Frostbite's graphic engine.
4) It will take some gameplay cues from Dragon Age.
So, as I'm sure you can imagine, and probably even know, speculation has ran quite rampant. I have heard 4 possible choices for what the next Mass …Read more >
I know the thing I am asking you for was probably debated over a lot in the past and well , it is kind of important issue for many people. None of the ME games on PC have controller support , a fact that I learned after my recently purchased ( Yesterday :D) XBOX 360 controller did not work with ME3 . And honestly , I have no problem to play with a keyboard and mouse , but this laptop that I have (HP Envy 15 jo48tx) has a very weird mousepad. I can't use the KB and the mousepad at the same time while playing a game and it's also very problematic. Therefore, I am asking here , on the ME wiki , whether someone knows about third party software which would allow me to use the controller

I looked at all three games and to me there is only one answer to this question, the illusive man. To me he seems like a very well thought out character, and by that I mean I get why he does what he does, it’s not just random to drive the story, which it does, but it does so in a way that makes sense. I got the four mass effect novels for Christmas and have started reading them and so far I’m very impressed and can’t wait till I get to the part about the illusive man.
I loved him as a character because he wasn't a fighting type guy, his real weapon was mind and I liked that, and he was trying to do the right thing just using the wrong way to go about it, but to be fair, the entire galaxy was about to be under siege by sentient machines, so …Read more >
Hey everyone, ever since I completed the series for the 4th time I've really been looking for another Sci-Fi game to play until the next Mass Effect comes out, which could be in a long time. I've found some games that look pretty awesome, but unfortunately they're not out yet and some of them could possibly be coming out at the same time as the next Mass Effect (already know I'm taking that week off). Despite the fact that they're not coming out for awhile, it's still fun to see how the development of these games are doing. The first game I'll talk about is probably the most well known, Star Citizen. Star Citizen, to me, has a very Star Wars feel to it. It has the option to play a campaign mode as a fighter pilot, or go straight into the o…Read more >
so I have been making a new power class system or my ME4. all thought I will not tell all of the ideas now. I would like to share some ideas for new powers I had to understand them just think that they might as well be ME3 powers:

While most fans have turned their gaze to the next Mass Effect game, some of us are still clinging to old hopes – such as that of a revised edition of Mass Effect: Deception.
The novel's various issues are well known to most fans of the series, and many have likely at least glanced at the google doc that is referred to as a "list of errors" on the novel's page here on the wiki. The purpose of this document is evidently to protect Mass Effect canon, but despite doing an overall decent job of it, the doc itself contains too many inaccuracies to qualify as a valid source of information (which any references here should naturally do). Perplexingly, some of the corrections or explanations provided in the doc contradict canon even more than the v…Read more >
REDDIT POWERS ACTIVATE!
One day, when I was browsing the Mass Effect page on Reddit, I've stumbled upon a webpage so petculuar and so interesting I thought I decided to share.

Hello everyone, like many people I was Blinded by my dislike of the endings and my dislike and disbelief of them was so bad that i fooled myself into believing this false theory, thus i grew desperate and blind enough to try to defend it. after a week or two of denial on the wiki and people asking me to stop i came to the realization that i may actually be in denial and my take on the endings started to divide as did my beliefs in the indoctrination theory. in the time before that i thought i was being unjustly attacked and in the end after realizing i had written some outrageous stuff, i realized i was the blind one. hear is how i turned from it, i started examining videos of endings and remembering previous endings i had seen, i realized…Read more >

1. Wrex and Kaidan.
I like this squad because it is impossible to kill and paired with a typhoon and a claymore it also have high weapon damage. it go's very well with my infiltrator to keep enemy of my back.

Wow, it's astonishing that nobody has made a blog yet about this. BioWare, in celebration of N7 Day, released a series of pics teasing the next game. It looks like ME4 is further along than anybody thought, and it's not unreasonable to expect a substantial announcement soon, perhaps at the VGAs.
(Also, yeah, I'm still lurking. No, this doesn't mean I'm back. The community here depresses me, where once it was my favorite online community. I mean, really guys? You're still whining at each other about the ending? What's done is done, move on. Please.

There are many different views about the mass effect 3 ending, I'm just going to talk about mine, I'm not here to debunk others, at least not primarily, and remember that this is my opinion, if you have different views then that's fine.
First of all, I was a late-comer to the mass effect party, and by late I mean everyone had passed out or left by the time I got there, I played the first mass effect around March 2013 ( told you I was late) but I did get all three game for £5 after trading in a few older games I didn't want anymore.
I purposely didn't download the extended cut to see what it was like without it, and while I was left with many questions, I felt like they didn't need to be answered, you can use your own imagination to make out …Read more >
HEY ANYONE READING THIS! how are you doing? I'm doing great thanks, I just recently got back int mass effect after I sold my xbox and most of my games including all three mass effects - In retrospect I'm not too sure why I sold mass effect - but I still had an xbox in the lounge and after a few weeks really wanted to get back into it so I bought the mass effect trilogy and after around four weeks I have completed my first play through in a long time. I always choose the control ending because I feel like it's the most heroic thing that Shepard can do, (just my opinion) people it says it shows that Shepard is losing because "he drops his gun", but then if you think about it, why would he need the gun to hold onto two handles? anyway I'm kin…Read more >

Well. I had the chance today to run across yet another of Lancer's debates - this time on User talk: Cattlesquat. And while I can understand with what Lancer says to a degree, I hardly agree with it. As usual.
This wiki's policy - as Lancer points out - is different to Wikipedia's. Almost every edit here on RC gets patrolled, rather than just major ones. QC is tighter, talk pages are for getting on with discussion, not random discourse or IP address comment.
And that's the reason I write this. There needs to be some closure on this. Some sort of warning to the noobs that they're not diving into what they think they are - for both the editors' sake, and the noobs like us. While Lancer himself has left, plenty others stand by the same rules - …Read more >
