Alrighty, so what may just be the final DLC for the Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer has released, and a ton of things have come along with it. Mostly I’ll be covering the characters and maps, as I haven’t really gotten used to the weapons enough to really give you all a streamlined view of how they work. I do know for sure that they work similar to the prothean particle rifle in that they don’t rely on ammo crates for usage. Otherwise I can tell you that they don’t seem to be up to par, but that may just be a level issue, as I’m comparing them to level X rares and a couple mid-range UR weapons. Anyway, prepare to delve into what I think is the finest DLC Bioware has published to date. (more…)

If you’ve finished the Mass Effect 3 campaign, you know that the extended cut was released last Tuesday for US and Canada to possibly fill any plot holes some [all] players wanted.  There have been an entire mess of theories arising, the most popular being the indoctrination theory, which in short was the idea that the entire final 30 minutes or so were simply an illusion and that you were in Shepherds mind fighting of metaphors for indoctrination.  Was that Bioware’s actual intention?  Does Shepherd still have an enemy to fight?  If you haven’t read up on the theories yet or are just curious to what my take on the series is, I suggest you continue reading below.  But beware, if you’re still interested in picking up the series, mass [lol] spoilers ahead.

It’s flip week I suppose, seeing as I covered the sequel to a game before the actual game came out. Anyway, this week’s game of the week is Mass Effect 2. Featuring an all-star cast of lovable characters, my favorite of which is currently Doctor Mordin Solus after his glorious rendition of The Major-General’s song. With a wide-array of ways to play with an even wider array of things to say, Mass Effect 2 is definitely one of the best games I’ve played to date. Check out the rest of the article to get my in-depth review of Mass Effect 2. (more…)

Alright, so admittedly I haven’t delved much into the single player campaign, and although I haven’t really gotten into the depth of this amazing series, I can at least give my current opinion on it. Mass Effect is a game similar to others like Dragon Age, in which the choices you make determine the outcome of the game. I can call it similar to Silent Hill in that there are always multiple endings depending on the path you chose during the story (such as Paragon or Renegade, which are essentially good and evil respectively). You play as Commander Shepard on the default, with the ability to change your characters looks and background with a few simple choices (or import your character directly from an ME2 file). Essentially the choices you make determine the outcome of the game and the fate of the universe etc, just like many other games of this genre. Read more to see my in-depth review of Mass Effect 3.

Mass Effect has significantly changed my life when it comes to gaming.  I used to not be such a big video game guy as it took me nearly 5 years to finally get a PS3 after it was released.  Mass Effect 2 was among the first game I got.  While it was difficult to get into, not playing Mass Effect 1 and buying it used so I couldn’t control decisions from the first game,  I managed to eventually persevere through it and get all the correct DLC to get the way I wanted.  By the time Mass Effect 3 came out, I spent 30 hours gaining everyone’s loyalty and etc., I had successfully gotten a fairly perfect Paragon mode with all my crew members.  I spent another 30 hours playing through Mass Effect 3 and my Paragon Male Shepherd chose the synthesis route and I thought I was done and satisfied.

It was interesting that I never truly considered the Renegade route.  Even more astonishing that I never remotely considered a female Shepherd.  And after going through some forums I read some very interesting quotes regarding my decisions: “Anyone who has never played a Female Shepherd should be considered sexist” and “Playing through renegade is a completely different side to the Mass Effect universe”.  I’ve taken these statements into account and decided to knock out two birds with one stone.  So here is my journey as Renegade FemShep.

This is the video of an alternative fan made trailer of Mass Effect 3 that incorporates more in-game graphics than the movie production values of the original trailer.  This trailer gives you all the goosebumps you want.

The original is below.  Compare.

From what I expect to be a move from EA after they received the worst Video Game Company award, they used their most recently popular game Mass Effect 3 to try and win back the hearts of fans with free DLC.  There’s plenty of content to be had here with a plethora of new characters and maps.  I personally can’t wait till I’m able to play with these characters on these new maps, as the multiplayer was beginning to get a little dull and repetitive for me.

For all of you Mass Effect fans it is time to rejoice! Despite being an idea created by deviantart user lupodirosso, this idea has gained some backing through internet forums and news aggregation sites alike, including Kotaku and Reddit. Though we don’t know how long it will take before people start sporting Wrex or Garrus inspired hoodies, the fact that someone has taken time out of their busy (or not so busy) day to craft these for us means that at least someone, somewhere will definitely want to be paying for something along these lines. Kotaku has already stated that similar designs have been released by BioWare, meaning that these designs could come into production whenever they so choose to hire this man. For now, however, I know that I’ll be sleeping soundly, dreaming of a collection including the very chic and stylish ME hoodies. BioWare TAKE MY MONEY!

Being a video game blog along with movies and television, I’m going to try and catch up with the relative lack of posts the video game category currently has.  And today I’m going to go through the list of games that I’m buying brand spanking new [used games are a different issue to be discussed in a different time].  2012 had quite the roster of highly anticipated games, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the following 5.  Ordered based on release date.
