Mass Effect the Movie??

I was quickly scrolling through game related news, when I stumbled upon something extremely interesting. The massively popular video game series Mass Effect is being turned into a feature length film. Although this is not the first popular game to take this route, it may be the first to actually succeed. When Bungie attempted to convert Halo into a feature film it was a complete failure. Although they released intriguing teasers for the movie, it was never finished due to money issues and it left many fans hanging.

In this case, Mass Effect seems to have more funding, better special effects and all around a more professional feel. The movie will be staring Commander Shephard’s male voice actor, Mark Meer, and will follow him on his quest to take down the story’s main villain, Saren Arterius. The move definitely seems like something worth checking out. Although I have never been a huge fan of Mass Effect games, I think it will be interesting to see how this movie turns out.

What is your opinion on this release? Do you think it will be good for the Mass Effect series, or will it just bring down the legitimacy of the game? Comment and let me know if you’re going to watch it when it is released!
