Mass Effect 3

BioWare’s Mass Effect 3 is only one short week away, and fans of the series are more anxious than ever to finally get their hands on the trilogy-maker and final game in the Commander Shepard storyline. Before the game is released, it’s a good idea to reacquaint yourself with the events of the first two adventures in the franchise. And one of the ways to do this, naturally, is through the art of rap music.

YouTuber Dan Bull, known for his geeky video game raps for titles like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Modern Warfare, among a variety of other videos he makes, has created just such a video, rapping about what went down in Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2.

Head below to check out the Mass Effect Epic Rap now!

Legendary Pictures Bringing ‘Mass Effect’ Movie To Comic–Con

The Movie God   |  @   |

We all know how bad movies based on games tend to be (and vice versa), but there are some games out there that, if done correctly, could make some pretty fantastic movies.

One of the big ones that jumps to mind is the Mass Effect trilogy. One of the biggest game series to-date, the BioWare property takes the action–RPG to incredible places, making for an intense and compelling story and a truly must–play experience for any gamer out there.

A Mass Effect movie has been whispered about for a while now, dating back to around when Mass Effect 2 was being released where Casey Hudson was quoted saying “Obviously we have a tremendous amount of interest from people in Hollywood to make a major motion picture about Mass Effect. The most important thing for us is, we don’t just want to see a movie get made. We want to see a great movie get made, if it’s going to get done at all.” That was followed by the news that Legendary Pictures had secured the rights to turn the game into a movie, but that was the last we heard about it…until now.

Geek Discussion: What The Hell Is Wrong With Our Video Game Text Sizes?
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

This is a topic that has been itching at me for a decent amount of time now, but I’ve tried to store it away and forget about it. This, as we all know, is not very healthy. So with that, it’s time to vent off about this progressively glaring situation and allow all of you a place to sound off.

For those of you who are unaware, a disturbing trend has become the norm when picking up a brand new video game. Imagine waiting one, two, maybe three years for an exciting new game or massive sequel, and when we finally get it in our hands it’s like Christmas morning. Now imagine gently placing your new game into your console, firing it up, and preparing to set off on a new adventure…only to discover that you can’t read the words on the screen. This is what has been going on more often than anyone has the stomach to handle.

In these many titles the text is so small, that reading them comfortable is impossible. The words aren’t completely illegible as many claim, but in order to read, you have to be fairly close and sometimes can find yourself staring blankly at a word, trying to figure out what it is (Click image just once for basic idea of what the font is like to read for me personally). Now I’m no genius, but when you have to decrypt an unencrypted word, SOMETHING has to be broken somewhere along the line, right?

2010-01-25_mass_effect_redemption_cover_01.jpgWith the imminent release of Mass Effect 2 tomorrow, buzz around the series has reached a fever pitch (how sweet was that ad during the NFC Championship last night?!) and earlier this month Dark Horse capitalized on the buzz by releasing the first issue of Mass Effect: Redemption a four-issue comic series, written by BioWare lead writer Mac Walters, scripted by John Jackson Miller (Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, The Invincible Iron Man), and drawn by Omar Francia (Star Wars Legacy).

Now, the comic series will soon be making the leap from the beautiful comic pages of yesterday to the iPhone’s digital screens of tomorrow. The first issue of Mass Effect: Redemption will debut on iTunes February 3, just in time for the release of second issue of the series in print form.

The comic tells the exciting back-story that led up to the events of Mass Effect 2, while exploring the exotic and dangerous future Milky Way of Mass Effect. It will also reveal previously unseen locations, aliens, and enemies of the rich science fiction landscape found in the game.
