Welcome to the thread. We discuss a lot of things in here.
If after the third film there will be liveaction TV series it will play in JJ Trek, I'm pretty sure. And in Star Trek TV series are the main canon.
Edit: With JJ making Episode 7 as well. It should do well. People wonder how the order we be quickly rebuilt. A lot of Jedi survived the purge, they were (in more complicated words) to give up the order to avoid being killed. To re-emerge when the Sith had fallen.

Honestly, while Mass Effect was Shepard's story, the thing that made Mass Effect so bloody amazing was never Shepard himself, it was the storyline, mixed with the possibility to decide outcomes and the vast array of engaging characters that helped set the tone and mood for a fantastic trilogy.
Shepard was... just a face and the vocal representation of your decisions through-out the trilogy. The series will most likely survive with another protagonist as long as he/she has a reasonable background that do not alienate people, and they are put into a great context of outstanding video game factors.
However the problem is that people have got attached to Shepard. The biggest problem with a new storyline is that it isn't what people are attached to. Some people will embrace the new story and characters and fall in love with it just as they did with ME 1-3. Others won't be able to see past "not Shepard" and will always have the new experience tainted.
The Mass Effect games were such great games because the Story and the Game World was so in depth and can survive all new characters and still be just as great.

You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."
EA denial won't make the husk of Maxis and the husk of Bioware any more successful. A brand don't make games awesome, and EA overestimated the weight of brands in making people pressured to buy, even crappy games.
I honestly don't give much credit that this new Mass Effect game will reach the end of development. I think DA3 sure failure will convince them to pull the plug.
Geez, EA even had to search for investors to keep Bioware. EA never had to search for investors before, they usually sent prospects and waited for the quicker answer.
I don't think Shepard is the only problem with making more Mass Effects. If any of the main characters appear they have to choose a canon ending. Hell, if any organic races we're familiar with appear they have to do that. Unless they write it out in a few lines eg, "oh yeah that whole Synthesis thing, yeah that didn't take. Wore off in a week".
I really don't see how they can continue the story of the universe at all unless they do something crappy like make it a prequel. Honestly if the ending had been better I'd have been happy if they just tied a ribbon on it after three games and let it stand.
You would think that after a year and 17 000 posts we would be allowed to occasionally discuss something unrelated without being chastised.
Also, it is true that the story of shepard was more about the world and the people around him.
Good worldbuilding is a must in a good story.

i dont feel like we should create a chat thread just for 5 people to have a conversation in all honesty...
someone else might have gotten it wrong.
If those five people can keep it active without resorting to spam then it's fine to have as a thread
Started playing my N7 Shadow. And holy crap! Its a beautiful revenge on all those fucking phantoms who have killed me on other characters.
Too bad N7 Shadow can't be a class for Shepard.
Still waiting for my EDIbot . . .

Right guys, is there any aspect to ME that we havent argued to death atleast 5 times?
Oooh! I know! I know!
How about why that damn data we gathered from the Cerberus operative in ME 2 never showing up anywhere in ME 3!
That one we argued 4 times at most!

I doubt the upgrade will change its instincts.
Just because reapers change their attitude because synthesis made the A.Is solution work a.k.a no more harvests needed, doesnt mean that Kalros is gonna give a damn.
My money is that its behaviour will remain the same, its is chaotic neutral.
Anyone that expects to get up in its territory will get stomped on.
