    I see what you mean but you are wrong, you tell me I should buy these games that don't break an existing and incredibly tired formula because I should try something new when the problem is these games are not something new. In short: BioWare are the ones that need to try something new, not I.


    Edit: And I wonder on which websites you went to get cotton panties ads xD
    Private browsing mode, they are purely random.

    If you are willing to spend $60 for that, feel free. It makes about as much sense as Phoronix advertising super-soft cotton panties.

    True, the formula stayed the same. But it was very well executed, although they kinda screwed up since the first game.

    And I haven?t paid $60 for those games. Mass Effect has cost me ?3.75, ME2 ?12.50 and ME3 ?6. Holiday sales .

    I did not know it was bad to play games that included perilous adventures and saving worlds

    I'm very much a sole Linux user/gamer and very much in the never-want-to-use-Windows-again camp, but I just have to say I wish people didn't always bring up and link to the Valve "Faster Penguins" article and claim games run faster on Linux as a general fact.

    It's true in some cases, not true in others and I think some people get their hopes up that switching to Linux now will instantly net them extra FPS, but (especially with sometimes less than stellar or yet to be optimized ports), that may well not be the case at all.

    Having said that, whilst I know I probably lose FPS in some games at the moment compared to if I was running Window$, I'm a very happy Linux gamer.

    Electronic Arts is DICE's sole owner... so that is not very likely.

    I'd like DiCE to port their previous Battlefield games, especially those using the "Refractor 2" engine, such as Battlefield 2 which happens to be in Steam as well...

    In short, the moddable battlefields, the ones that matter

    Mass Effect is an amazing game, but it was released before EA gobbled Bioware up. Going forward I don't see Bioware releasing anything worthwhile (that at least don't involve micropayments, demonic DRM, unfair DLC practices and prices etc. and that already started in Mass Effect 2).
