This weekend players from all around the world battled the Reapers in order to complete the very first Mass Effect Multiplayer online challenge, Operation Goliath. The first (of hopefully many) mission had two parts, to eliminate 1,000,000 Reaper Brutes, and…
Bioware is known for excellent storytelling, and Mass Effect 3 does NOT disappoint. At it’s core the Mass Effect trilogy is all about heroism, family, and adventure. While other RPGs have made the promise of a “branching story line” based on player decision, none have come close to the level of complexity that the the Mass Effect franchise actually achieves. By now you’ve heard how it works, as the player progresses through the narrative he/she is forced to make a number of difficult game-changing decisions. I would venture to say that almost everyone that has played Mass Effect has had a slightly different experience, and that’s just incredible.
First off, thanks for allowing me this opportunity to write my first blog post for Nerd Appropriate! How exciting! Speaking of exciting things, I had the pleasure of attending the West Hollywood launch event for Mass Effect 3. Take Earth back!
Over a year ago while recording one of our early podcasts we sat around daydreaming about what the perfect Mass Effect multiplayer experience would be like. We stated that if multiplayer were to work properly, it would have to be just as rich and in depth as the single player experience. We also agreed unanimously that Mass Effect multiplayer should never be competitive (team death match), but objective based action and survival. Now who knows if Bioware was actually listening, but it seems as though the message got through. Mass Effect 3 multiplayer is here… and I’m indoctrinated.
We’ve been waiting for information about the Mass Effect 3 mobile experience for quite some time. As a matter of fact, we listed some predictions last November here on the site, and it appears as though Bioware agreed with a lot of what we had to say (thx!). Let’s take a look.
This just in. Bioware revealed a bit of interesting information via Twitter a few moments ago. If you were worried about having to start all over from level 1 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.
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.
As if we needed more to sweeten the deal, EA revealed early this morning that they’re going to reward their loyal customers by way of some brilliant cross-marketing. Similar to their Dead Space 2/ Dragon Age 2 mash up, people that show some love to Kingdom, will receive some in game Mass Effect 3 goodies and vise versa .
What a treat for Mass Effect fans. I’ve been wanting to write about this amazing recording done by voice actress Kimberly Brooks for quite some time, but with my
internet on the fritzthe Reapers attacked I haven’t had the opportunity. Recently Kimberly Brooks did an incredible voice recording of Ashley’s e-mail to Shepard following their heated meeting on Horizon during the events of Mass Effect 2.
Every once in a while our good friend aXL99 creates some of her incredible nerd-infused art live for all to see. For those that aren’t aware, aXL99 was featured heavily in this summer’s Bioware art contest and was recently Bioware’s featured fan artist (shes that good).
Some new Mass Effect 3 info hit our mailboxes today, and while we probably should have reported it earlier we were more than likely crawling inside of tauntauns to avoid the icy blizzards of Hoth. As if you couldn't tell,…
There is something afoot, we just don’t know quite what it is yet. Recent comments made by EA/Bioware seem to confirm that there are something “mass”ive coming our way in the form of a new Bioware flavored social experience.
