Yesterday it was revealed that Freddie Prinze Junior would be starring as Commander Shepard’s sidekick in Bioware’s upcoming Mass Effect 3. I’ve always felt that Mr. Prinze Jr. was given a bit of a hard time after the Wing Commander debacle and never had an issue with the guy. The truth of the matter is that I’ve always admired him a bit.
There has been a disturbance in The Force. I am unsure whether the “mainstreaming” of gaming is simply people becoming accepting or a fault line opening up within the industry. Is gaming culture becoming accepted, or have game developers learned how to craft their games and market them in a way so they aren’t perceived is such a negative light?
