Epic Games Is Making An Unreal Tournament Announcement
If I remember the login system wasn't optional for me.
So are you saying that mass effect is part of the Unreal storyline?
You remember wrong, then. There's a "cancel" button, right next to "log in".
No I'm not. What I'm saying is that the concept of both games was the same. In both you are a captain of a spaceship, are on a task of galactic peacekeeping, both are story- and dialogue-based, both were supposed to be non-linear in that you can select the missions to go on, in both the choices are supposed to matter, both are supposed to have vehicles, both are strongly about the visuals of each planet and are supposed to be about exploration etc. Not a whole lot of that ended up in the final Unreal II, because Atari ordered Legend Entertainment to release the unfinished beta (cutting out all of the WIP sections, including the multiplayer, which in a much reduced and simplified form Legend released separately after the fact) and then promptly dissolved the company; however, the design docs survived. Whether or not Bioware was aware of them I'm not sure, but the similarities are striking.
