I started this game with ME2 and loved it. Played through ME3 great game and couldn't get enough. Went back an played through ME1 on xBox, and loved the story of that game. Ever sence wanted to play through all three on one system. Very excited about this announcement, can't wait for it to hit the PS3 (my guess mid December). However I have some concerns.
ME1 came out several years back, and was a beautiful game. But will it get an updated treatment for this collection, much the same as ME2 got when it was released on the PS3. I'm not talking a massive overall, just sharpened up. That isn't so much a concern as it is a hope. My real concern is with it's combat. That area is in desprate need of a massive overhall because it was pretty much broken when the game came out and it hasnt aged well. The cover system most of all. Will all the DLC be included from M.E 1 to the new Omega DLC comming in November also be included. I'm hoping so.
Well this is definitely great news since I was unable to have a xbox to play the first one. I have both the 2nd one and the third one and now I can play the first one. I am just going to buy the PSN Download for 15 bucks, I hope it comes with goodies or dlc? I think doing a run through from the beginning might give me a different perspective than just going off by the comic. I think I can keep Captain Kirrahe alive so he shows up in ME3.
I think all they need is to redo the end or the extended cut, I thought the 2d images were out of place and didn't feel like it, they fit the whole universe. Also I think they should keep Shepard alive and tell another story, but that is just me.
