Ahh Mass Effect, how I love your sweet biotic embrace. I had a feeling the Mass Effect fans would swarm the Charting a Course: Developing the Next Mass Effect panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International so I hobbled down to room 25 ABC about three hours before the panel began just to make sure I got my curious butt in the door, and it’s a good thing I did.
The gang braves AFO. Ash plays Gone Home and sees Kick-Ass 2. Matt gets a bean-bag chair and an instant coffee maker. Scott plays Adera, and worries about open world gameplay. LETS GO NERD APPROPRIATE!
The gang is back together again for the first regular podcast of the new Rated NA Century! We talk a little Hero Academy, Nintendo, New Xbox, Beyond: Two Souls, and Oxyana. We review Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, Adera (ft. Ali Hillis) and Oblivion. SPOILER ALERT: Bioshock Infinite spoiler talk (54:20 – 1:08:07). Finally, a great NAQOTW where you tell us what you love about where you are! Wish you were here!
Scott finds a lot to like (including Ali Hillis) in this old school inspired puzzle-adventure game for Windows 8.
We welcome the awesome and talented Ali Hillis back to the podcast. She takes us through her origin story, how she got into acting and video games, and her love of animal rescue. Our chat concludes in a rapid fire session we call the Lightning round… get it?! Finally, Rated NA responds to a challenge of our PC gaming cred. It’s on.

I think it’s time to let Shepard retire and see what else is out there in the galaxy. I’m really curious, and excited, to see what Bioware comes up with next!
Insomniac games is known for the incredibly fun Ratchet and Clank franchise, but what happens when they focus on something a bit more…. explosive? The answer may just be Fuse. While we still don’t know a heck of a lot about Fuse, we do know this new trailer has us amped up to shoot things with our buddies. Check it!
Hmmmm…. “We’re in early stages of designing a completely new Mass Effect game. What would you want to see in it?” This afternoon Mass Effect Executive producer Casey Hudson sent out a tweet that got the imaginations of Mass Effect fans working overtime. While this is something we’ve discussed at length on our podcast Rated NA, we’re elated to hear that Bioware is hard at work on a next-gen Mass Effect title. After a bit of stewing here is what we’d love to see.
