Mod Makes Mass Effect's Climactic Space Battle Playable In Homeworld

As a fan of space combat sims, my gut twisted as I watched the massive battle between the Reapers and everyone else play out via cut scene in Mass Effect 3. I wanted to control it. Phoenix Interactive's Mass Effect Reborn mod for Homeworld 2 gives me that chance.

Mass Effect Reborn, released in early beta earlier this month with a planned full release in late April or early May, gives Homeworld 2 players control over the forces of Earth and friends, as the ancient Reapers arrive to kill everything kill-able in the universe.

I love it. I wish game developers would do this sort of thing -- realise that their adventure game couldn't handle say, a fistfight and tag in a fighting game developer to make it happen. Mass Effect's engine not built for a universe-rattling starship skirmish? Don't worry, BioWare, Phoenix Interactive's got this.

    OMG I need to download this! Time to dust off that copy of the Homeworld 2 disc! Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ^_^

    Looks pretty sweet, but I say that about everything ME. =P

    I really hoped there would be a Mass Effect 3 RTS spin-off game. Imagine if after finishing Mass Effect 3 you could go and play an RTS that tailored the content to match your main game decisions. Even if it was just a slightly more detailed version of the Galaxy at War iPhone app running via Smart Glass between missions it'd be pretty sweet.
    Probably the most disappointing thing about the end of ME3 was how it felt like they just threw away a universe without exploring any of the other stories and games that could happen there. It feels like there's no way they could make a Mass Effect Metroidvania game starring Garrus. =(

      I agree, Mass Effect is a universe rip for spin offs.

      I think they should start July separating Mass Effect 3's Multiplayer for free from the base game and release it again to keep people interested in the IP
