    • @Ben Lunch Mass Effect Legendary Edition will feature better graphics in relation to the original trilogy. Now, I don't know about you, but that is usually seen as a improvement... And changing those camera angles won't change the storyline of the game or ruining it in any way. You idiots are overracting and seeing censorship where there is none.

    • @Roses are red, but Zerglings still are purple "Mass Effect will be relaunched to a new generation of players with new and improved graphics." We dont know that. A remaster is not automatically better (or even as good) compared to the original and Mass Effect is not the first game remastered. Some remasters end up better than the original but many remasters dont and instead end up undoing creative choices of the original. For example to look "oldtime" Mafia II had a blue-ish filter while to look futuristic Deus Ex had a golden-ish filter. When remastered (Directors Cut/Definite Edition) they not only increased resolution. They removed the graphical filter which result in a vastly different experience. Now this wouldnt be a problem if you could chose filter on/off in the OPTIONS MENU. Its simply almost never a good idea to go back to a big movie, a game or a book and try to re-make parts of it to fit a different era and specially not for political reasons. For example what if LORD OF THE RINGS was made today? They would need to do the same thing Game of Thrones Season 8 did and have a more "modern thinking character" invent modern democracy while complaining about Kings being chosen by being sons of Kings. And sure you can talk about how thats an "improvement" but how good did the end product up now again?

    • @Ben Lunch Well, I *_trust_* that Bioware will not make any drastic changes in the game. The only changes will be in the graphics and in those ridiculous camera angles. But if Bioware f*cked up even such simple things, they will deserve to have their doors closed _permanently_ by EA.

    • ​@Roses are red, but Zerglings still are purple You are contradicting yourself here. If the detail of the "camera angles" was insignificant it wouldnt be significant to change. Its CHANGING things that require risks and resources. Not the other way around. If how the camera angles look was insignificant to you then your own position would be the wrong one. The proper way handling unimport things is keeping them as they were. There is no need to try improve anything which is not important as improvements ALWAYS have the risk of making things worse.

    • @Roses are red, but Zerglings still are purple Bioware themselves blamed the issues with Andromeda on Anthem taking resources away so clearly Bioware themselves were not happy with Andromeda. The narrative after Andromedas disastrous release in 2017 was that Anthem would make up for everything and become the next BIG thing. Then when finally Anthem was released in 2019 it ended up worse. The point however is that Anthem was an EA game through and through. There was nothing even resembling the old Bioware in Anthem and the things you complain about were not accidentally put in. They were chosen to pander to the values of EA which were 1. Monetizable game mechanics and 2. Games as service (always online crap). To counter criticism EA took in the Sarkeesian legion to Bioware to help design "Anthem" which is the reason the "city hub" of Anthem seems utterly separated from the rest of the game (with insane loading times between the hub and the gameplay). Thus they pretended EA was all about "diversity" when EA was all about pushing monetizable game mechanics and "games as a service". Thus when they announce the remaster of an old game I am sorry but I dont TRUST them with any changes. Specially not those made using the same argument and people Anthem did. Now do you understand my position better? I dont want ANY non-removable changes to the remaster. If people wants to play with different angles than the original game let that be an OPTION in the OPTIONS menu.

  • They called it Ass Effect 2 for a reason! While it’s not a deal breaker I definitely believe it to be censorship. Sure anyone can look but you can’t zoom in just like that. The point of her character was to show off everything

    • How was her ass the point of her character? If you are talking about the whole engineered looks thing then be aware that her massive fuckin milkers are still going to be present in most of the shots portraying her, dont worry choom. the thing is, her ass appears in scenes that are supposed to be important and serious in regard to her backstory, don't you think that it's fitting to remove these shots as they kinda ruin the atmosphere of the scene?

  • I don't think anyone who owned the Mass Effect series with all the DLCs should pay more than $10 for a graphical upgrade with less content. After all, Bethesda gave out Skyrim Special Edition to all owners of OG Skyrim with all its DLCs. Unless EA is going to give us more content (maybe some cut content), there is no point in paying more than $70 for this. Even Halo 2 remastered with all its new animations never cost me that much.

  • Censorship of any kind in videogames is a bad thing that should be hated by everyone, it doesn't matter what's concerned by the censorship (censorship even make pointless the rating system for videogames). Besides, the legendary edition won't even include DLC from the original games! I'm sure Pinnacle station is not there and who knows what else Bioware did to f* this up...

  • This is important because of the REASON for it. They don't want to pander to "male gamers". Please think on that: they are adjusting the game because they think their male base is disgusting. They don't deserve our money for this. They have the time and budget and moral high ground to fuck with camera angles but none to remodel characters, add all the DLC, rework the ending, add the multiplayer... this is *LITERALLY* a cash grab where they insult you in the process. Don't fund this shit, people. Everyone wants to cancel shit, so add this to that list. Please don't let this be successful.

EA are known for no effort maximum gain... look at their fifa reskins etc, theyre just reskinning ME

    • I'm personally buying despite having the original games for a few reasons. 1: less crashes, the mass effect games on the old consoles crashed all the time to the point it got dumb. I had 2 ps3s and they still crashed on those systems. With the Remastered edition those crashes are more then likely gone. 2: Can stream, I wanted to stream mass effect for years just didnt have the proper equipment..with them coming to ps4 and me having better streaming equipment I'll be able to. 3: updated graphics and textures, gameplay, more customization options...this one is kinda self explanatory. 4: 40 DLC...dont know about you but on my ps3 some DLC wasn't available, so I'm glad I'll be getting all 40 of them, plus all 3 games in one package for 70 bucks (Canadian) I'm not gonna complain about that. 5: Some people dont have the original old consoles so why not buy the remaster if you had the chance? So yeah, I think it's not just a matter of "why buy it if you have the original" I technically had the original FFX and FFX-2 but still bought the remasters, the same could be said about any game that Remastered

The butt shots didn't really add anything to the game, but it's not like it was something that needed to be censored either. What a pointless thing to do imo.

  • I don't care much about this, but in general it seems buying the original trilogy separately is superior to buying the legendary edition. The graphics still look good and there are mods which fix many issues I've had with the series(even the final ending). Either way, people should be cautious when pre-ordering the Legendary edition. This isn't the Bioware that made DA:O, KOTOR+2, Jade and ME1+2+3. This is the Bioware that made ME:A, DA:I and Anthem.

  • @YongYea You saying you were bothered by the camera angle in that scene when you first played the game is complete bullshit and you know it. Nobody was thinking that deep when they played the game there where too busy enjoying the experience to care about that stupidity. Bioware didn't have a problem with it before however now it's a problem and they want to make a camera adjustment. And some people aren't calling this Censorship because of the context of the scene. Let me break this down in the simplest way possible so some of you who are defending this change can understand: Censorship is Censorship regardless of how big or small the change is. This change did not need to be done I don't give a shit what there reasoning is. They couldn't help themselves they needed to make these changes in order to appease those that where bothered by it. The fans weren't bothered by it but somebody was and that's why the change was made. Fuck you Bioware/Electronic Arts for once again catering to those who do not speak for the fans or anyone for that matter. I don't support censorship in anyway shape or form so I won't be getting this so-called "Legendary Edition." I'll be just fine playing the original Mass Effect Trilogy on Playstation 3 the way it should be played.

    • Exactly, if miranda was gone from the game entirely and replaced then okay...I would see there point, but this? There changing a camera angle...its not the end of the world. There is no "censorship"... I look at it like this: if a woman is having a serious discussion with you...are you going to focus on her breasts or ass? No, of course not. So bioware changing something as small as this makes all the sense in the world to me

  • It's censorship. Period... Any rationalization for making this change: it wasn't intended, it's just a camera angle, it's awkward, it's sexualizing, it's a minor thing, it's just an ass, it's unintentionally funny etc. It all boils down to this: "I don't like it or care for it, therefore it must be changed to suit my taste or I'm ok with it being changed to suit what I like. Other people, if I ever think about anybody else than myself, can't be allowed to enjoy something I don't like or care for or at least I'm ok with others being denied access to something I don't care about (me, me, me I wish the world revolved around me)." No matter the reason people like the scene as it was and no matter the reason one might want it changed... it's about this. Can you allow other people to enjoy something you don't like or care for yourself? If the answer is yes you will not like this change. If the answer is no... You essentially are the stereotypical selfish only child / man child whatever and shouldn't be playing an m rated game anyway, because you are clearly not mature yet.

  • I'm not a fan of the framing of lady butts in the game industry but I'd rather they not change it at all if it was in there originally. It stuck with me all these years and it'd be weird to see a remaster without it. It's like when rated R movies air on cable networks and they edit the language to be less colorful. For example: Kill Bill's 'My name's Buck and I'm here to pARtY'.
