Why not? Let's have a Mass Effect thread. Aemon Send a noteboard - 02/02/2010 05:02:32 PM
Announcing a thread for a particular game isn't something I've done in the past, but considering the success that SciFi/Fantasy has with their book-club threads, let's give it a shot. Keep in mind that this post is supposed to inspire discussion, not control it. If you don't like the idea of posting in an official thread, or think your opinions will be lost in the crowd, feel free to make your own thread. There won't be any locking or deleting going on. Also, as an aside, I'm not playing game-favoritism here. If you ever want to see an official thread for a (newly released) game, make a post, and send me a note. I'll sticky it for ya.

That said, let's get on with it.

Rules for this thread:
  • NO SPOILERS in reply titles.
  • Replies should be assumed to contain spoilers unless marked otherwise.
  • If a top-level reply is marked as having no spoilers, all further replies to it should also avoid spoilers. This only applies to top-level replies. If someone marks no spoilers in the middle of a spoiler discussion, you don't have to suddenly switch modes. :P

Topic ideas to get you started:
  • Reviews (spoiler and non-spoiler)
  • Plot
  • Mass Effect 1 vs Mass Effect 2
  • Characters
  • Technology (graphics, voice acting, loading times, etc)


Go nuts. :D
