    Why is it that ever since this, there has never been anything like it? Every space game is literally just flying a dumb ship in space and no alien societies and races interacting or anything.

      I wonder the same. I don't mean to put this game on a pedestal. But it still boggles me that no one else has tried this kind of setting in an rpg. The worldbuilding seen throughout its many cultures that inhabit it. Bethesda tried their "hard sci-fi" approach in Starfield and that was nothing but a snooze-fest. Supposedly Larian Studios is developing a Sci-fi rpg of their own. I wonder if it will emulate Mass Effect seeing as how BG3 does have qualities that some would see as a spiritual successor to Dragon Age.

        it's literally just Star Control 2.

        and the answer is nobody makes bioware style RPGs anymore, not even bioware, and modern devs haven't played anything older than Skyrim.

          Well, I guess I haven't looked back at the past far enough.

          >nobody makes bioware style RPGs anymore
          It seems like Larian is following a similar style though to be fair they are the rare exception when it coms to modern devs.

      I played it again recently and it's still a damn good game. BG3 wouldn't have been wanked over so hard if it had more competition like it in current year.

    Because the magic doesn't come from the game but from nostalgia, same as every fricking similar thread. Zoomers will feel the same about the Fortnite login screen when they are 40.

      Yeah the games are massively flawed but the only other game resembling it in both design and setting is KOTOR

    The SWTOR mmo is kind of the same thing but with a Star Wars skin. It even got an expansion (Knights of the Fallen Empire) that is just like Mass Effect 2 but better.

    the guys who made Baldurs Gate, KOTOR, SWTOR and the expansions made a new studio and are now working on a game called Exodus. It features time dilation and you get to run your own space dynasty.

      I wonder if it will still just have a human centric cast. It would be nice to explore a setting with a variety of species inhabiting it.

      Exodus will be a very slop game, but with some okay ideas from Drew. Mac Walters is also trying to make a TLOU clone, which reveals that he's definitely the guy that ruined BioWare, because out of him, Drew and Casey, he's the only one who already came out and said "I'm not making an RPG", he talks about how amazing AI will be for making easy concept art, and he thinks games should be "bespoke" and linear. Literally everything including lazy getty concept art that sucked about ME3, which he was Product Owner on.

      Casey however, he's aware of what you have to do to go back to what was kino, long long ago. That's why he left EA despite getting really nice paychecks.

        Yeah I'm curious which areas of the narrative Drew is contributing to. I assume he will help make it fascinating. The actual concept primer, setting and 400 page content bible is by Jesse Sky. The last project he did before Exodus was with James Ohlen, they wrote an acclaimed tabletop book called Odyssey of the Dragon Lords. He also wanted to make a Mass Effect rpg book, but apparently licensing is a complex thing.

        Not sure when it's out, don't think there's a release date

        No proper gameplay as of yet, besides snippets of generic third person combat spliced into some of the marketing footage. I think there are articles of James Ohlen talking about some of the IP-specific innovations, but I'm not sure how much they've revealed.

        pic rel is a pretty good primer on the setting

    One of the most overrated games on Ganker. Replayed the trilogy recently and the first game has aged like milk. Hasn't even been that long either.

    Casey Hudson is our bro. We just betrayed him when he ruined the ending with his egotism and being delirious from a full year of crunch-mode.

    He appeared in a new interview about his company Humanoid Origin. It's shaping up to be Tango Gameworks esque, where a lot of talent is arriving. He poached a lot of the better BioWare devs after he left EA, including their VO Director and the Audio Designer from ME2/3, who made everything sound so organic, and made the Reaper "BWAAA" sounds, and the Gethy click sounds.

    Casey says we have to be conscious of the fact that when ME1, 2 or 3 were new, we didn't yet know what the "magic trick" was, to stuff like the conversation system, so they're not trying to directly recreate that but trying to recreate the "magic" we felt by challenging the idea of "what interactive dialogue with characters" can be again.

    I think he's kino. I think what he makes will be kino.

    Magic. Good one. Its just a little bullshit story about nothing in a generic universe. Few side missions in 2 were good and sometimes the fact that it was so lame actually made it funny and thus somewhat memorable.

    But long after I forget that this trilogy even exist I will still wonder about the universes and stories from the books I've read.
