I’ve already discussed my complete and utter disdain for the sheer volume of rumors propagating around the web for the past year regarding multiplayer possibly, maybe coming to Mass Effect. We think. Now, though, OXM has confirmation (and a pretty magazine cover) that in the next Mass Effect iteration, in some form or fashion, you’ll be shooting aliens with your buddies online. That sound you’re hearing is me banging my head on my desk over and over and over again until it suddenly gets dark. I don’t even know why I care at this point. I’ll buy the game. I’ll play the game. Chances are I’ll really, really enjoy the game. So why does the fact they’re devoting development time to multiplayer, something a lot of people are likely to enjoy (even if I’m not one of them), irritate the hell out of me so?
…Hey, you! You kids! Get off my f’n lawn!!! (Also: Discuss in the comments and tell me why I’m lame.)
