I originally watched this clip over at Kotaku just to see some new footage of Gears 3, but what I discovered was that this clip was actually a very well produced segment on how the video game industry operates. It also goes into detail on where the major U.S. players reside, how much games really cost to produce as well as the manpower needed to produce a “AAA” title.
This just in. Bioware revealed a bit of interesting information about Mass Effect 3 via Twitter a few moments ago. If you were worried about Shepard starting all over from level one all over again, exhale! Your Shepard will pick up right where he/she left off. According to this recent tweet by lead designer Preston Watamaniuk “The level cap for #ME3 is 60. If you import from #ME2 you retain all class powers and your xp level.” With this information it appears we won’t have those terrible “level one blues!” We all hate lvl one right? I’m excited that Bioware went this route and increased the level cap to 60. I’d hate to see them have to explain how Commander Shepard “forgot” all of his/her abilities all over again. Nice!
