Upcoming 'Mass Effect 3' Dlc Might Be A Big Deal

6 December 2012 10:35 AM, PST | MTV Multiplayer | See recent MTV Multiplayer news »

How big? According to Eurogamer, big enough to require an eight-person writing team which will include lead writer Mac Walters. The untitled Dlc is being developed by BioWare's Edmonton studio, and according to one of the company's designers, that number represents pretty much the entire writing team there.

But BioWare's not just throwing a bunch of writers at the next story set (presumably) in and around "Mass Effect 3."

Seth Green is making his "Mass Effect 3" Dlc debut in a return to his role as Normandy pilot/resident joker, Joker. Also returning is "Mass Effect 3" composer Sam Hulick, whose work can also be found in "Baldur's Gate" and "Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad" as well as "Mass Effect 2."

So what will the next piece of Dlc entail? It's anyone's guess, but each one has dealt with the same problem of getting their hooks into a player who may or may »

Why the Ending of Mass Effect 3 Started a Furor

26 March 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

BioWare A scene from the videogame Mass Effect 3.

During an appearance on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” for the 20th anniversary of his Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Angels in America,” Tony Kushner let slip a detail of the “very specific sense” he had about what happened to Joe Pitt—one of the play’s central characters that disappears very ambiguously from the story’s end. Neal Conan, the show’s host, must have realized the incredible opportunity he had in »

Non-Gaming Game News For the Week Ending March 9th: 'Mass Effect' Comic Roundup

7 March 2012 11:45 AM, PST | MTV Multiplayer | See recent MTV Multiplayer news »

As you dig into Mass Effect 3, you'll find the game has quite a few call-outs to events that happened between the second and third games in Bioware's sci-fi trilogy. Conveniently, these events happened in the Dark Horse-published comic tie-ins and more conveniently still, we've got details on the three trades after the jump.

Mass Effect Vol. 1: Redemption Tpb

The story of what happens next-exclusive to this graphic novel-will have the commander's companion Dr. Liara T'Soni undertake a deadly mission of extraordinary importance in the Milky Way's lawless Terminus Systems.

Mass Effect Vol. 2: Evolution Tpb

The Illusive Man sits at the center of many of the galaxy's greatest mysteries and is a key figure of Mass Effect 2 and beyond. Now, for the first time anywhere, the origin of the Illusive Man is revealed, in a story exclusive to this graphic novel!

Mass Effect Vol. 3: Invasion

Mass Effect 3: Secrets of the Game

2 March 2012 9:00 AM, PST | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

BioWare Mass Effect 3

I’m going to admit something here. I really don’t like Star Wars. Here’s the thing: There are certain stories that work well as videogames, just as there are stories that work well as movies or films. Space operas, with their seemingly infinite room for expansion, endless idiosyncratic planets and funny-looking aliens, and waves of lore and technobabble, make more sense to me as games.

This is what BioWare must have realized when it created »

It’s just a relationship. The beauty of that is — in an ideal world, 150 years in the »

2012 Graphic Novel & TPBs to Watch

2 January 2012 10:49 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The Flash | DC | W: Brian Buccellato | W+A: Francis Manapul

I’ve held off on getting the singles of this series so that I can pick up a lovely hardback of Francis Manapul’s gorgeous work. Like Jw Williams III on Batwoman, Manapul plays around with the comic page format to aid in the story telling process, in the process creating some stunning images.

Batwoman | DC | W: Jh Williams III, Hayden Blackman | A: Jh Williams III

Again like The Flash I’ve held off on getting the singles of this series so that I have more reason to buy the beautiful hardback that I know is coming in 2012. I cannot wait to get my hands on the first arc of the new Batwoman series, and see just how far Williams can push the comic medium.
