Yay! Liner notes!

Edit: There was a T-Man from Bude? Seriously?  I think JJM and I are the only two people to know where it is!

Have any of those issues been collected into TPB?

Also, I wish they'd let you pen a Mass Effect series that didn't have to tie in so much with the current video game plot and characters, freedom to tell your own story within that universe. Maybe after 3.  Sad

Just the last two issues of the run have been collected -- most recently in the Disassembled Prelude hardcover:
http://www.farawaypress.com/fiction/books/avengersdisassembledhc.html

Mac Walters' game design role makes it possible to do stories that have important in-universe consequences, so we want to take advantage of that. But like I said, I've increasingly gotten more input as the Mass Effect stories have been going along, and as I've gotten more familiar with the setting.

I'm kind of glad, though news of it being "tweaked" to appeal to a larger audience has me a tad worried.

Yeah, me too. Does that mean Mass Effect 2 didn't sell well enough? I'm kind of doubting it. Does this mean that it will just be a linear cover shooter with interspersed cinemas? Kind of sounding like it at this point. Hopefully they won't kill all of the role-playing elements...

Bioware has went on record saying "they want Call of Duty's audience". Take that as you will.

Oh god.  Why does every game have to be every other game?  What ever happened to niche markets?

Now that I think of it, what ever happened to games where you actually had a buddy over and you played together?

It's like game companies think no one has friends and online is the only way we play games ... oh, and FPS is the only way to experience the game.

Honestly, as long as the game is good, I don't mind if they make a few tweaks.  Compared to the first game, Mass Effect 2 was a weak rpg with an amazing story and characters.  Customization was practically nil compared to the first game, but I read that ME3 will be more like ME1 when it comes to the rpg elements. 

I'm not worried.
