The fabled Mass Effect team up in Edmonton (eh, hoser!) is back to work, although this time they’re building an entirely new franchise. The exciting news came from the team’s Executive Producer, Casey Hudson, who stated the team is “building something new”, and the franchise will be based on “a whole new universe”. The news dropped just yesterday during a panel at the PAX East games conference in Austin, MA. Or was it Boston … ?
Quick, someone sell me on the PS Vita. Anyone? Bueller? After taking a new 9-5 gig this past fall, I have found myself on the road for work as many as three weeks out of the month, meaning I wake up in a Holiday Inn Express (baller!) about 12 times per month on average. Some may call it depressing, others would also call it depressing. In reality the job is great, but I miss my PS3 (and my fiance, of course!). I am a pretty stubborn handheld gamer however, as the only system that I have ever stuck with was the original Nintendo Game Boy. For those of you reading this at the local Applebee’s after getting shot down for attempting to sneak into that rated-R movie tonight, I’m talking about the old school, black and white Game Boy that was about the size of a brick. The Game Boy with the color screen? That was still a few years out in my day. My only other foray into handheld gaming was the Sony PSP, which I actually owned on two occasions. My dilemma then is the same issue I put forth to you today: is the Vita worth it? Much like the Vita, the PSP had so few worthy games that justified the hefty purchase price. Once I beat the only good games in the library, and there was nothing new on the release list, it was back on the used hardware shelf at GameStop faster than you could comment below on how awesome my Photochop is. Welcome to SQ btw.
