Before you say anything. Yes. Yes it is. Mass Effect 3 is everything that you’ve ever asked for in a Mass Effect game and so much more. So many times in conversations with friends over the past year have I said that I am legitimately scared for Mass Effect 3. I was the guy who was shouting from the rooftops, “There is no way they can make a better game than Mass Effect 2!” But they did, and I am here humbled and astonished at what I have witnessed. The culmination of the most epic space drama I have ever been a part of.

Back when I gave my first impressions of The Old Republic (SWTOR, for short) I promised frequent updates on the status of the game, my character and everything in between. The major roadblock to that, unfortunately, is what I perceive to be a brick wall I hit around level 40.

I can recall countless times in my lifetime where I’ve said those words “What a badass”, or “That is so Badass” while watching a movie or playing a Video Game, but you can’t just sit there and throw it around like it’s some kind of regular word. When you give that word to someone, you better mean it and they better be that! Or I’ll find you…I swear I will!
In high school, I had my first brush with MMORPG gaming when some friends of mine started talking about a game called World of Warcraft. From my friends’ stories alone the genre called to me like some digital siren. As a proponent of depth and interaction in gaming, I was fascinated by the idea that all of the main characters were people like me. The concept that I could forge real allies across continents and group with them to slay dragons and demons took hold in me in a very real way. The monkey had lodged itself on my back, and it was clad in the coolest armor!
Incontrol88, Thief92 and Mercwithamouth13 discuss gaming news, their favorite video game characters, and the first ever Community Arena pitting Captain Malcolm Reynolds vs. Han Solo! It’s bound to be a good time. Seriously.
