BioWare Is Losing My Respect


For me personally I got into playing Mass Effect much later than the rest of the entire series of fans who've been playing the games since the release of the first game. Regardless of me getting into the game much later than most of the fans I grew to enjoy and love the gameplay, lore, and story of Shepherd fighting to save the galaxy from the Reapers. I was even one individual in the small group of people who didn't complain about the ending to Mass Effect 3 and found it to be a very satisfying ending to the series, but BioWare is starting to lose my respect for the Mass Effect series. 

My respect for BioWare and their decisions with the Mass Effect series began to decrease after deciding to release a free DLC that explained the endings of the third game due to the fact that the entire internet world was hounding them on a decision they made for the ending of the game. Even though the DLC was only an explanation piece of DLC I still lost respect to a degree due to the fact that they gave into to people yelling and screaming at them instead of holding strong to the decisions they made for their game series that they've worked on for over 5 years. 

Now with a new Mass Effect game in development BioWare is beginning to lose more of my respect for their decisions on the Mass Effect series. With it being stated that the game will be running on the Frostbite instead of the Unreal 3 engine is a decision that will bring a much better looking game to gamer's. Regardless though of their engine changes I still find their decision to make a brand new game absolutely horrible on their part. Mass Effect 3 ended with such a great way of wrapping up the series that people grew to love exponentially even though it was the most criticized game in the whole series. I feel that BioWare is just taking a franchise that has developed such a great fan basis with so much lore and story and just absolutely milking it for more money on their part. I personally would have been entirely fine with just releasing DLC for ME3 and moving on to work on Dragon Age 3 and more games, but a brand new game of Mass Effect just feels like to much. 

In my personal opinion BioWare needs to move on past the Mass Effect series they concluded and not milk a series that people have grown to love. These decisions have caused them to lose respect they've gained after fantastic games such as KOTOR, Jade Empire, Dragon Age, and the early Mass Effect games. If anyone else has anything to add to this please let me know your opinions on BioWare's recent decisions for the series.

Mirror's Edge 2 In Development?


In 2008 Mirror's Edge was released to much satisfaction from gamer's on all platforms. Fans of the game have been asking for a follow up for quite a while and they may be getting their wish. A tweet posted by a former EA Developer Ben Cousins on his Twitter a tweet that caught the eye of the industry. He stated in his tweet "It is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene that Mirror's Edge 2 is in production at DICE". 

This claim was soon addressed by a current employee at DICE Stefan Boberg who is the Technical Director of the Frostbite Engine on Twitter stating "Never trust a man who badmouths and talks down all his ex-employers... but still attempts to gain credibility by association #nohire". 

Rumors of the Mirror's Edge sequel have been floating around throughout the year, but this is the closest we've been to possibly seeing it become a reality. Even though this comes from a former EA developer its the closest we've come to hearing about a follow up. Time will tell if this claim is true and if gamer's will be getting the game they're wanting.

GTA: Vice City Removed From Online Retailers


If you were excited about the news regarding GTA: V and were wanting to relive some memories on past Grand Theft Auto games you won't be getting Vice City. It was announced yesterday that Grand Theft Auto Vice City has been temporarily removed from online retailers. According to Cinema Blend the reasoning for the temporary removal is due to music licensing issues inside the game. Cinema Blend also revealed that they believe the cause for this came from Sony Music Entertainment regarding the song 'Wanna Be Startin' Something' by Michael Jackson.

After filing this claim against the song being in the game retailers have removed it temporarily while these issues are straightened out. According to Game Informer this will not be affecting the upcoming release of the  iOS version of the game.

Skyrim: Dragonborn DLC

Bethesda has JUST released the trailer for their 3rd new Downloadable Content, called Dragonborn.



In this DLC its rumored to have Dragon mounts, new armor, new races, and very mystical landscape named Solstheim.

Concerning new weapons, we might be seeing spears as weapons in this new DLC!

Sadly, it has not been confirmed, nor denied, that the dragons will be player controlled, but we can always hope!

Dragonborn DLC will be launching on the Xbox360 on December 4th for a mere 1600 microsoft points! Personally that seems like a steal! Basically a whole branch of the game for a 3rd of its original, brand new price!

However, no statement from Bethesda on when, or if, the content will be available for PS3 or PC. {sorry PS3 users :(  }

Xbox360 users, I'm so stoked for this new DLC! Aren't you!?
