Mass Effect the movie?

I wish I could say Mass Effect is a great game, everyone else tells me it is. The 4 hours I played it for were great, not if I could just complete all my other games to give this a proper go I could possibly agree. Ok that has nothing to do with the fact that according to Gamespot  ex-Marvel CEO Avi Arad has optioned the rights to produce a film based on the EA-owned property. 

Giving the galaxy spanning story and diverse ranger of characters(from what I’ve played) this could make for one epic sci-fi movie if handled right.

  1. Well, I loved the 11 hours I’ve put into the game so far, but like Monsieur Le Nuge, I’ve been distracted by shiney / shorter games along the road. I have bought the two novels (written by Drew Karpyshyn – writer of amongst other things the Darth Bane novels and the plotter / scripter for Mass Effect the game) and am looking forward to reading them next.

    The ME universe has such a rich background built in and I can’t help but love that in a game. To be honest, I think the game’s spanning plot would be lost in a movie (Even Knights of the Old Republic would take two or three to tell properly I reckon) so this would have to be a movie set in the ME universe. Perhaps an adaptation of the Prequel novel?
