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?
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!
