In recent years some developers have taken it upon themselves to become “Hype men” for their respective companies. Now let’s get one thing straight, if I worked on a AAA title that looked like Bulletstorm, you bet I would hype the living hell out of it. The question however is, have the devs over at Epic and People Can Fly gone too far? Is this latest “hype” filled video for Bulletstorm dumbing down the talent of some amazing artists and programmers?
Mass Effect 3 had a major showing at day 1 of the E3 convention. We’re going to comb through it all as the day progresses, but we figured we’d start with the Mass Effect 3 N7 edition contents. I’m going to be honest with you, if this edition cost $400.00 and had life sized statue of Yeoman Chambers I’d probably find some way of buying it. From what we know now, the N7 edition looks very promising, although I rarely read an art book more than once. Have a look!
Collector’s Edition Mass Effect 3 – The N7 edition ($80) boasts a shit load of great extras for YOUR extra cash. In-game content, above art books etc, is always my favorite edition to any collector’s edition. In the case of the N7 edition you will gain access to : A Robotic Dog (which no doubt functions like DA2’s Mabari), Bonus N7 weapons (cool), exclusive companion outfits, and an additional downloadable mission and character. If you could care less about in-game items (shame!) the game also comes with a tiny lithograph (a fancy picture), a hardcover art book, Mass Effect 3 comic book, an N7 patch (that you’ll never dare put on anything), downloadable extended soundtrack, a Normandy avatar 360 prop. But wait, there’s more! Depending on WHERE you buy your collector’s edition there will also be exclusive pre-order bonuses from various retailers. For instance, if you buy your copy at Wal-Mart you get a DVD of THIS video (man I really hope you clicked that).
