BioWare Says 'Mass Effect 2' Is The Trilogy's 'Dark Act'

It's going to bet worse before it gets better in Mass Effect. BioWare has successfully teased Mass Effect 2 as we near its massive E3 reveal, but we shouldn't expect much optimisim for Commander Shephard and friends, as Mass Effect 2 producer Casey Hudson told IGN the sequel is the "dark act" of the trilogy.

"We look at each game in the Mass Effect trilogy as a three-act story," said Hudson. "But then as a trilogy we have our three acts. So Mass Effect 2 is the dark act. It's an opportunity to really explore the tougher, more brutal parts of the universe. They say in the first act you put a guy in the tree, in the second act you throw rocks at him, and in the third act you get him down."

Knowing this, I suddenly have a desire to play through Mass Effect again with Mass Effect 2 in mind. I didn't really take the decisions that seriously in Mass Effect, not believing BioWare would really follow-up on their ambitions, but it's looking more and more likely I was wrong. Anyone with me?
