The lights are on
Imagine a Mass Effect trilogy without aliens, set entirely on one planet. In the first of our series of interviews with Mass Effect's director Casey Hudson, we discuss the genesis of Bioware's sci-fi epic and the different paths that it could have taken. Check out the video below to learn how the project began and why Mass Effect's director doubts a trilogy of this size and scope will ever happen again.

what a cool guy
I love this man. Thank you for this wonderful universe and I hope you reconsider about making a new series with a trilogy.
awesome interview. just awesome. and I really agree with his point about the whole save feature and trilogy thing. It's amazing what they've been able to accomplish with the success they've had, and I just don't see it being done again, especially when there's always something new right around the corner.
*** why is this interview so *** short? I could listen to this guy for hours.
Amazing. He is really passionate about the work he is doing and that is an excellent sign for the ME Universe. These behind the scenes videos are appealing to the special features nerd inside of me. I cannot wait for this game to come out!
I think Casey Hudson is a great game maker. I understand it took alot of people to make those games happen. Bioware is one of the best, in my opinion, but the way he looks at things is really cool and understandable. I hope now that they have spent the money to get the awesomeness that is Mass Effect structured, created and made, that franchises like Dragon Age and on will benefit from the save game system, dialog sphere and so on. I feel like I was in the minority when I say Dragon Age 2 was awesome. I loved the first one and the second. I just hope I see more great games from Casey.
p.s. - KOTOR was the best Star Wars game btw. Star Wars + RPG = win!
You have been able to do that, and you've done it better than any other developers out there.
He certainly knows how to make great games. It looks like they've decided to bring back more RPG stuff for the third one as well. That should make it the best of the three.
Man, I would love to have his job. Great work! Can't wait for more from the ME series!
very good interview
Well, ME will certainly be going out in style!
Sure hits a lot of interesting little points. Excellent interview, and editing down.
As long as they stick to the formula, keep up the amazing writing, create some more difficult moral decisions, and make my ME2 decisions matter, this could be the greatest game ever. Also, the interview was good.
Very nice interview, and great game director. With games such as KotOR and the Mass Effect trilogy under his belt, I wonder what he'll do next. Perhaps a new IP will be created?
Talk about coincidence; he mentioned that Gladiator was one of his favourite movies and I just finished watching Gladiator two hours ago, weird. As for the interview interesting stuff.
