Mass Effect 2 for the PS3 has gone gold and will be available next month. PS3 users will be happy to know that this version will be running off of the Mass Effect 3 engine.

Offering up more than six hours worth of content on-disc than its PC or 360 brethren, BioWare has is saying that the PS3 version of their sci-fi epic, Mass Effect 2, would be the definitive version. Now, PS3 fans have another cause to be excited for this upcoming port, as BioWare has announced that the game will run on the Mass Effect 3 engine.

“We actually created the engine for Mass Effect 3 and used that to make Mass Effect 2 on PS3,” producer Jesse Houston said in the BioWare podcast. “So we took the content, the story, and all of the other assets that made up Mass Effect 2, and we put it into the Mass Effect 3 engine.”

The engine isn’t the only thing getting an overhaul in ME2 for PS3, as the controls will be updated for the DualShock 3, and the patches that rolled out for the 360 and PC versions will be “rolled up” into the PS3 version.

Mass Effect 2 has officially gone gold, and will be available next month. If you’d like to see how the new ME3 engine stacks up before then, a demo will be available on PSN on December 21.

Quick rant on Mass Effect 2

By: BatRastered Feb 4, 2010 | 3 Comments

WTF is up with this import utility?

First of all, let me say that I loved the first Mass Effect, and so far the sequel is living up to its legacy. Having said that*,  I had some issues on the first full day of playing it.

I have a small issue with the load times. I don't mind loading before and after a mission. I don't even mind the elevator load times this time around. The problem is when you die during a mission (usually because that dickwad Shepard won't take cover behind that wall that's RIGHT FUCKING IN FRONT OF HIM!! A. A. I'm pushing A!! FUCK!)... Sorry, anyway, when you die you have to sit through an annoying loading screen. WTF? Why is this the only game that does that? I've played plenty of games with checkpoint/autosave like this that load instantly after a death (e.g. Halo). What is so complicated about this? It's not like it's loading a different level, it should already be in memory. F!

I had a big problem with the import utility. If you don't know, Mass Effect 2 allows you to import your save game from the original Mass Effect. This preserves some of your decisions from the first game and gives you a monetary bonus and a small experience bonus (one level) and either a paragon or renegade boost depending on how you finsished the first one.

When I started the import utility and selected my HDD as the storage device, it said no save games found. WTF? I looked in the xbox menu for the data on the HDD and it's there... In fact I had three different save games from the first game. Hmm... Tried a few more times, no luck. Went on the interwebs and found some forum posts bitching about it... Turns out if you swapped xboxes between beating the first game and running the import utility, it doesn't work. Somehow the save game is tied to the original xbox and there's no way to copy it over. However, the save game still works with the original game... so... I have no fucking idea what's going on at this point... Seems to be a bug, and considering the defect rate on the xbox hardware and the length of time between these two releases, a bug that could affect a great deal of people. I hope they fix this, but for those of you effected by it, here's the workaround: I hope you still have your original Mass Effect disc, because you need to pop that in and load up the last save you made before killing Saren (you do still have that save, right?). Kill his weak ass again, make your decision about who should run the council, or whatever, wait for the credits to roll, and exit. Your new autosave should be importable now. Fucking ridiculous.

To: EA/Bioware. Fix this stupid shit! Thanks, your friends at Gouki.com**.

*Thanks to Lary David, I can no longer say or write that phrase without smiling.

Mass Effect movie is a suicide mission

By: goukijones May 27, 2010 | 3 Comments

Avi and Ari Arad will produce.

So yeah any video game movie you gotta be skeptical. I'll be seeing Prince of Persia tomorrow and I'll be sure to let you know what I think.

Over at my old friends site DarkHorizons.com he post a story about the Mass Effect movie getting a green light. Mass Effect is one of my all time favorite series. I really don't want Hollywood to nubfarm this movie up. It's gonna take a huge budget and serious cast and crew. Some of the weapons, locations and effect of Mass Effect could be way cooler on the big screen than Avatar. Here's a little excerpt. 

"Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures have scored feature film rights to BioWare’s hit video game franchise "Mass Effect" according to a press release from Electronic Arts Inc."

2010 video games I want blog

By: goukijones Jan 3, 2010 | 9 Comments

Here's a list of video games I want and don't want to play in 2010. It's going to be an amazing year. Number 1 in the world baby King of Jimmys!

Mass Effect 2 Its so close I can't believe it. I love Mass Effect 1. The guns the music the flying the ship through the space and being a fuckin' asshole to everyone in the galaxy. Can't wait to play part 2! Mass Effect 2 giveaway

Bioshock 2 is right behind ME2. If you got vacation days coming, use them! Fuck the multiplayer Jimmy whining about multiplayer suck. Bioshock was so much fun just by itself. I will play the multiplayer though, carrying the kicking and screaming little sister around as "the flag" is cool and looks awesome.

Final Fantasy XIII Fuck yeah Jimmy. I loved XII. I spent more than 365 total days in real life playing Final Fantasy XI and that's just ridiculous. So I will at least try XIII. XIV?!? GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE. A new online Final Fantasy will come out this year too. I'm done with everything.

ModNation Racers I'm playing with the Beta now and absolutely loving it. It's a kart racer with the exact same controls of Mario Kart 64. Every race gives you that same exact feeling of fast-paced close finishes racing. Oh yeah!

Mass Effect 2 review

By: goukijones Feb 3, 2010 | 1 Comments

How to be a space renegade. Starring Jimmy Shepard commander of the PwNormandy! Kill aliens and squad mates and be a complete ass about it the entire time. Mass Effect 2!

It took me about 35 hours to play through Mass Effect 2. I did 98% of the side quests and all of the loyalty missions. I'm ready to tell you my opinion. Mass Effect 2 is totally super! Below you can ready my random takes and thoughts as they pop into my head while think about my experience with Mass Effect 2 during the last week.

There's been a lot of changes to the game. The combat and the dialogue game play are very similar to Mass Effect 1. First major change I noticed is no more Mako. The Mako was the tank/jeep you would drive around in Mass Effect 1 when you go dropped onto planets. Now you get dropped right on a linear path to your objective when you land on a planet. I only care, because I liked driving the tank/jeep around looking for items and loot.

Experience, Credits, Minerals all have specific values now and are used for different item upgrades and store purchases. The credits and mineral gathering are cool. You hack safes and PDA's for credits. I enjoy how you scan the planet looking for stuff, it's a cool mini-game and separates you from the regular game play. What absolutely seems absurd is somebody didn't realize you don't get experience for killing enimes. You get experience from completing missions and quests only. You don't ever level up during combat and that sucks.

Minerals are now used to upgrade your guns. You only get a couple of different guns to choose from and all the upgrades are universal. This is one of the first things that I didn't like. I liked having different guns with different sets of enhancements and different biotic armband thingys to choose from. This is also the reason why there is no inventory to manage on Mass Effect 2. Good and bad.

When you orbit planets now you have a scanner that you can "rub" all over the planet looking for spikes in the scanner for materials. You have a set number of probes you can luanch down into the planet and until you upgrade the scanner it's slow as shit. Fun for people who like to comb games for secrets. Planet depleted!

There are no more identical warehouses full of space thugs and random Jimmys to talk to. No more elevators either, although its just a loading scene of an elevator moving through a holo-map of the Normandy spaceship. The loading screens are cool though. I only miss the news of me ripping ass althrough the galaxy while you rode the elevators in Mass Effect 1. Plus all this adds up to make the galaxy not seem so big.

The voice acting is spot on again and the conversations are why this game is such a success. I am such an asshole in this game and it is so much fun. Female Shepards unite! +34 Renegade was the highest count I got in my first run through of Mass Effect 2. In Mass Effect 1 I got Renegade +25 after killing that entire colony that was poisoned. lol. The Mass Effect series is awesome!

Michael Dorn is Warf in Star Trek The Next Generation, the Klingon Jimmy! In Mass Effect 2 he voices every Krogan in the game. The Krogan are the most stereotypical race in the game. They have alien dog fighting on their home planet Michael Vick style. They all belong to different Krogan gangs represented by colors and names. Shoot first and axe questions later, the truth is ... it's all about the paper.   

During conversations now there are real-time events where you can be good or evil and those are fun and keep you paying attention. I pushed a guy out of the window once, and let random squad mates kill random people at will. Totally awesome.

The game is fun evil more than good. The story is interesting to watch and if you have a character to import from Mass Effect 1 you get a special feeling when you remember busting a cap in that Krogan that was on your team. The Krogans in Mass Effect 2 remind me of killing him and hate me because I destroyed the "cure" for their people also. Fuck'em.

I'm gonna try play through number two on insanity difficulty level because normal was just way to easy. You'll get 35 hours easy out of Mass Effect 2 and its a lot of fun. I say buy Jimmy! Unless you are the REAL Jimmy and will just Gamefly it now and wait two years for it to come in the mail. Don't be a Jimmy!
