Gaming Heads Reveals Garrus Statue

Posted by Ben Huber on May 26, 2014 in Hobbies and Collections, Videogames


One of the most popular characters from Mass Effect is being immortalized by Gaming Heads as an impressive new statue. This figurine of Garrus Vakarian from Mass Effect is 21 inches tall, which makes him — well, it makes him massive. He also comes with two different guns (the Incisor Sniper Rifle and the Phaeston). Limited to 500 copies worldwide, you’ll probably want to hurry if you want one: pre-orders are open now on Gaming Heads’ website. Garrus runs $349.99 and will come numbered and with a certificate of authenticity. Pretty cool! Oh, and yes, there are payment plans. More images below! Read more…

Pre-Order Risk: Mass Effect Galaxy At War Edition

Posted by Bob Muir on Nov 7, 2013 in Videogames

Risk: Mass Effect Galaxy at War Edition

After several years of not playing many board games, I got back into them in college. Since then, I’ve been trying out some new ones, but certain board games are classics, like Risk. There’s a new variant edition coming out soon: Risk: Mass Effect Galaxy at War Edition. This Mass Effect-flavored game has you taking control of one of three factions with their own win conditions to fight the Reapers, the main bad guys of the series. The game is available for pre-order for $50 and might be worth picking up if you want a new version of Risk or if you’re a fan of the game. Read more…

Return To The Citadel In Final Mass Effect 3 DLC

Posted by Bob Muir on Mar 5, 2013 in Videogames

Mass Effect 3: Citadel

It’s been a long, tumultuous road for Mass Effect 3 and its downloadable content. While I don’t care to play it, the multiplayer has surprisingly flourished, aided by free updates. Meanwhile, additional singleplayer content has been rolled out in the style of Mass Effect 2. But while they may be similar, the wind has been taken out of their sails due to the fact that they don’t have any effect on the controversial ending. Regardless of what you think of the DLC so far, the end has come: Mass Effect 3: Citadel will be the final storyline DLC until Mass Effect 4 (currently in development).

Quadriplegic Gamer Solos Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Games

Posted by Bob Muir on Nov 27, 2012 in Videogames

Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer

Many were surprised that Mass Effect 3 actually had a multiplayer mode worth playing, instead of what seemed like a tacked-on feature. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea (and not what I bought the game for), but it’s certainly a well-made co-op mode. When I was playing it though, I never left Bronze difficulty, the lowest of four difficulty settings. For those who aren’t pros at shooting games, it provided enough of a challenge that I wouldn’t dream of not teaming up with partners to beat the computer. And yet, there are those who can solo not only Bronze, but the next difficulty level Silver, and one of those people can do it without possessing control of his limbs. Read more…



EA Brings Together Mass Effect Trilogy For November Release

Posted by Bob Muir on Sep 27, 2012 in Videogames

Mass Effect Trilogy

The awesome thing about holding off on buying major trilogies is that you know they’ll be bundled together down the line for cheap. Less than a year after the release of Mass Effect 3, the Mass Effect games are getting that bundle. Mass Effect Trilogy will be available come November 6 on Xbox 360 and PC for only $59.99. The bigger news, however, is that this bundle is eventually coming to PS3. Read more…

SDCC: Mass Effect Anime Trailer Looks… Alright

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 14, 2012 in Anime, Videogames

Excited about that Mass Effect anime announced a little while ago? Here’s a good look at it, with a full-length trailer being released at Comic-Con this week.¬†FUNimation is partnering up with Production I.G. and T.O. Entertainment to create the film and, well, it looks simply average. There are a few interesting shots in the trailer but for the most part it fails to excite me. Paragon Lost will be all about James Vega’s battle with the Collectors, so essentially this is something that will probably not grab most people unless they’re die hard Mass Effect fans.

The REAL Mass Effect 3 Ending

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 23, 2012 in Fandom, Videogames

Ok, maybe not, but who doesn’t want to see an Animal House version of the Mass Effect 3 ending? TuneIntoTheRock and some buddies realized after a night of revelry that this combination was one the world needed to see, and now it exists here. It’s quite funny, even for me as someone who isn’t a big Mass Effect fan. The little jab at the writers at the end is cute, but I think we’ve all had enough of that by now. Still, great video, TuneIntoTheRock!



Expanding the Mass Effect 3 Experience

Mass Effect 3 Galaxy at War logo

If you’ve been following the site, it’s no secret that I’ve been looking forward to playing BioWare’s Mass Effect 3. Critics have praised the game and while some gamers have voiced concerns regarding everything from day-one paid downloadable content to the doctoring of stock, royalty free photography, I’m still enjoying my experience for the most part. I admit that I’m not a very social gamer but due to BioWare’s new interactive “Galaxy at War” system, you’re almost forced to deal with the multiplayer aspect just to improve your single-player campaign’s ending. Fortunately, there are a couple workarounds for those of you with an iOS device. More after the jump.

Mass Effect’s Commander Shepard in Salt Art

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Mar 6, 2012 in Hobbies and Collections, Videogames

To help commemorate tonight’s release of Mass Effect 3, I thought I’d post this interesting bit of fan art. Until today, I never knew salt was something people actually used for artistic purposes, but as you’ll see in this time-lapsed video, salt art can be quite impressive. No doubt it’s incredibly time consuming, but that doesn’t seem to be an issue for Bashir Sultani, the artist responsible for the piece. It actually took around two and a half hours for him to complete it, though I imagine someone who isn’t used to working with salt might have taken much longer. If you’re interested, he has entire YouTube channel dedicated to the art and it’s definitely worth checking out.

Accidental Beta Leak Has Massive Effect

Posted by Michael Sacco on Nov 5, 2011 in Videogames

Mass Effect 3

Man, this kind of thing could only happen nowadays, in the era of always-on broadband internet and complex gaming infrastructure. Somehow, an internal beta client for BioWare’s much-anticipated console RPG/shooter Mass Effect 3 was accidentally released to the public on Xbox Live. And it’s not just the multiplayer, which was slated to have a public beta in January — it’s the singleplayer campaign too. BioWare appears to have taken down the download page from XBL, but there are already videos of the highly-unfinished singleplayer campaign and its companion multiplayer mode as well. In the videos, you can see options for a few different singleplayer modes, such as “Action Mode,” “RPG Mode,” and “Story Mode,” which BioWare says are some sort of variable difficulty level to make sure everyone gets the play experience that suits them best. Hey, I’m trying to avoid spoilers for the game, so congratulations to those who got the chance to download the beta before it disappeared. Enjoy it in my stead. Read more…
