2010 is looking to be a good year to be a gamer. While 2009 was a great year for gamers; as we have played some of the finest titles this generation such as Killzone 2, Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 2, Assassin’s Creed 2, Forza 3 and many more, next year could be the best year for gamers since this generation started back in 2005.
The first quarter of 2010 will bring to us some of the most anticipated games this generation. Two of those are favorites among RPG lovers, Mass Effect 2 and Final Fantasy 13. While I have enjoyed some JRPGs this generation (Lost Odyssey, Tales of Vasperia, and Varlkryie Chronicles just to name a few), WRPGs are becoming the dominant choice for RPG gamers around the world, unlike last generations. So, If you look closely at the title of this article, you are going to see a battle not just between two of the most anticipated role playing games this generation, but also between two different style of role playing: the western style VS the Japanese style.
Mass Effect 2 is the sequel to the highly acclaimed space opera RPG, Mass Effect. The game takes place in the year 2185, two years after the conclusion of Mass Effect. With the Reaper invasion stopped and Saren and the geth defeated, Commander Shepard learns that entire human colonies are mysteriously vanishing. Shepard won’t act solely by himself, so in addition to his team mates (old and new ones), he will be joining with the human supremacist organization Cerberus to resolve the mystery behind the vanishing of the human colonies.
