by Kevin [ Thursday, 11th of February 2010 - 02:02 PM ]
Now this is what I like to see, more DLC not too long after a game's successful release, absolutely free. BioWare is continuing this trend of rapid-fire assault on the XBox Live and Games for Windows Marketplace by providing some brand new armor and weapons for the Normandy Band of Brothers (and sisters.. and krogan.. and asari..

Review: Mass Effect 2
by Michael Camacho [ Monday, 8th of February 2010 - 04:31 PM ]
*Disclaimer: If you have not played Mass Effect, then I urge you to play through it before reading this review, as it will contain some spoilers from the first game. After the original Mass Effect, Bioware had a tough job on their hands. They made an excellent game, but one that was hampered by complaints from the players. So during the two plus years since the original, Bioware has spent their time making the necessary changes. The final result is leaps and bounds ahead of the first. Read More...

The Launch Of Mass Effect 2
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 21st of January 2010 - 07:29 PM ]
So the launch of Mass Effect 2 is only a few days away now. So how does BioWare and EA want you to get excited for it? Well in the epic movie trailer type of way. At least this is how it seems from the new trailer for the game that was just unleashed on the gaming community. Man is it an epic video too. Honestly my words won't be able to describe the clip as well as just watching it. But if you still have yet to skip past my words to the video, let me sum it up. Read More...

A Mass Amount of Content?
by Kevin [ Friday, 6th of November 2009 - 08:45 PM ]
There's no real way to hide from a collector's edition. Every game is going to have one, and if you disagree - it's only because you have yet to find it. Mark my words.This edition is supposed to be limited in quantities, though I would wager that there will somehow be more copies trickling in after the initial rush. The fun'o'plenty pack is going to have a tin case, a hard cover "Art of Mass Effect 2" book, an issue from the Mass Effect Redemption comic and a behind-the-scenes DVD. Bioware is also saying that there will be unique in-game weapons and armor that can only be obtained by purchasing this edition. Read More...

Mass Effect 2 Gets Dated
by Ben Brody [ Sunday, 18th of October 2009 - 12:36 AM ]
Mass Effect 2 now has a solid release date: January 26, 2010. While it's anybody's guess whether or not it actually comes out that day, it can be safe to assume that EA would be idiots to announce such a specific release date then push it back (again). Then again, we've all seen stranger things. The game, which is a direct sequel to 2007's Mass Effect, still features commander Shepard, who for some reason has lost all his abilities from the first game, trying to figure out why large colonies of humans are mysteriously vanishing (geth maybe?) The game will take place 2 years after the first Mass Effect (and was originally supposed to be released 2 years after as well, but who wants to go up against Modern Warfare 2). The game will utilize your save-data from the first game, converting any decisions you may have made for better or for worse. Read More...

The Mass PAX Effect... 2
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Saturday, 5th of September 2009 - 04:16 PM ]
PAX isn't even in full swing yet and already the new shots and images are pouring in. Not just from the lesser known titles either. But the major ones too. Like this little game you might have heard of, Mass Effect 2. Maybe you've heard of it, maybe you haven't. Then again, you may have been living in an underground bunker with your parents since the 1950's and missed out on everything up until now. Cookie, online, if you catch the reference there. All humor aside now. Read More...

What We Are Able To Show Of Mass Effect 2
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 13th of July 2009 - 12:57 PM ]
Mass Effect 2 Developer Diary One of the big things that was kept behind guarded close doors a month ago at E3 was Mass Effect 2. EA wen to great measures to ensure that no one caught video or even spoke about what was seen in the small closed off room. With good sense given some of the spoilers and how epic this game looks like it is going to be. If you are a fan, you know what I'm talking about here. Well here is some good news for you that were not one of the lucky few to get into that hidden booth, but have heard about things from it. Read More...

Mass Effect: Galaxies Review
by Kevin [ Thursday, 25th of June 2009 - 10:03 PM ]
Mass Effect Galaxies, formerly Mass Effect: Jacob's Story, is an iPhone game developed by Bioware to offer fans of the franchise a little more in the way of mythology and action. It's a top down shooter with a great deal of personality for such a tiny title. It is not required to enjoy the series, but playing the game does give you insight into more of what is going on with characters you will encounter in the highly anticipated sequel, Mass Effect 2, Jacob and Miranda.Many of the same options in the 'higher end titles' appear here, including biotic powers and branching conversation trees. Unfortunetly, using the branching conversation mechanic here does not seem to have as much weight as it does in the aformentioned big brother to this game. Read More...
