Mass Effect 3 MMO is being talked about

Bioware founders have been think­ing about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of a Mass Effect MMO, some­thing I think we can all be excit­ed about should ideas meet devel­op­ment. Mass Effect is such a huge uni­verse that even the large in depth games dont real­ly begin to scratch the sur­face. Some­thing that has been acknowl­edged by the founders of Bioware. Dr. Greg Zeschuk stat­ed, “It’s daunt­ing, but the neat thing is it would lend itself to a dif­fer­ent type of game play. It’s fun to think about,”.….“I imag­ine peo­ple think it would be just like Mass Effect as it is… but there’s lots of peo­ple there. It’s real­ly inter­est­ing, I don’t know. It’s a tough one.” Dr. Ray Muzy­ka men­tioned a “pos­si­bil­i­ty space”, which is areas of the fran­chise that can and should be extend­ed. Muzy­ka had this to say. “When you deliv­er a game, and you deliv­erRead more…

Gaming in Stereo: Somber Halo Monday

[display_podcast] Today we take a look back at anoth­er Halo 3 song off the offi­cial sound­track. Say what you will about the Halo series, but Mar­tin O’Donnell and Michael Sal­va­tore have cre­at­ed an epic in the sound depart­ment. Today’s track is Nev­er For­get, a beau­ti­ful orches­tra and piano suite that echo’s the sor­row, the sac­ri­fice, the epic con­flict that spanned across the galaxy and beyond. I just can’t get enough of this sound­track and the series. In a world full of “mod­ern” set­ting shoot­ers, I real­ly miss the epic sci-fi con­flict. I hope you enjoy this calm and somber Mon­day.

Gaming in Stereo: Lost Planet Friday

[display_podcast] Lost Plan­et came out ear­ly in the 360’s life span and is still one of my favorite games of this cur­rent gen­er­a­tion. The game was clear­ly made by a Japan­ese devel­op­er for a west­ern audi­ence, there are foot­prints all over. Though despite this being a first attempt at cre­at­ing a game for the west­ern audi­ences, mas­ter mind Kei­ji Ina­fu­ne help cre­ate a game that had a great sin­gle play­er as well as a great inter­na­tion­al online com­mu­ni­ty. Lost Plan­et was one of the first games I played on Xbox Live and I made a lot of inter­na­tion­al friends due to the pop­u­lar­i­ty of the game across the pond. Today’s track comes from the collector’s edi­tion that I have and sad­ly is the only way to get the sound­track. The good news is they are on Ama­zon for twen­ty bucks,Read more…

Gaming in Stereo: Bottom Feeder Thursday

[display_podcast] This song was one of the rea­sons I start­ed this fea­ture arti­cle. I would lis­ten to this song in the show­er, in the car, on walks, and any­time in between. This is one of my favorite songs in gam­ing and off the Bas­tion: Offi­cial Sound­track. I can’t give Dar­ren Korb enough praise for the sound­track. This song comes late in the game but just has a puls­ing beat and a hint of Ara­bic tones; it’s just a won­der­ful mix. Today’s song is The Bot­tom Feed­ers; I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Gaming in Stereo: Sephiroth Wednesday

[display_podcast] I start­ed this fea­ture with one of gaming’s great­est hero’s, now we look at one of gaming’s great­est vil­lains. Sephi­roth is just one of those vil­lains you either love because of his bad fac­tor, or hate and weep because he is evil and killed Aerith. Today’s song is off of the same BadAss: Boss Themes album that last week’s Shred­der tune came from. Sephi­roth (Final Fan­ta­sy VII) BadAzz by Pro­to­type­R­ap­tor is full of pulse pound­ing beats that make me want to pop in Advent Chil­dren. I was going to do this song a few weeks ago, sor­ry for the delay. SEPHIROTH!

Borderlands 2 on Android?

Dur­ing last weeks PDXLAN Gear­box Soft­ware demoed Bor­der­lands 2, this in and of itself would have been an inter­est­ing activ­i­ty, what makes it stand out though is the fact the demo was being run on a Tegra 3 pow­ered Android Tablet. Tegra is Nvidi­a’s mobile CPU solu­tion and has the Tegra 3 is the lat­est quad-core vari­ant. It is already in a hand­ful of tablets such as the Asus Trans­former and is about to hit a large num­ber of Smart­phones. The fact that Bor­der­lands 2 was run­ning on this mobile proces­sor is not only impres­sive and says alot about its heft but also shows promise in the way things are going in the mobile com­mu­ni­ty. If a tablet can run a PC grade game it wont be long before mobile gam­ing is tak­en to a whole new lev­el. Does thisRead more…

Gaming in Stereo: Kirby Tuesday Redux

 [display_podcast]   Last Tues­day we fea­tured Kir­by and we are going to do it again, because I say so. Actu­al­ly I came across this song while lis­ten­ing to last weeks and fell in love with it. Gen­er­al­ized Veg­e­tal –Theme of Star Gen­er­al by Tren­thi­an is just awe­some. The soft brass and strings come to a crescen­do mid­way through to cul­mi­nate a great melody that just gives the pic­ture of Kir­by march­ing along into an adven­ture. A soft flute fin­ish­es the tune and takes us back into dream­land. I real­ly enjoy these remix­es, espe­cial­ly the Nin­ten­do trib­utes. There is a cer­tain mag­i­cal feel to Nin­ten­do that can’t be described, only felt in that joy­ous smile while play­ing some­thing like Kir­by. The song is off the Rise of the Star: The Kirby’s Adven­ture Remix Col­lab­o­ra­tion, same as last weeks and I imploreRead more…
