“Mass Affect”: What destroyed Mass Effect 3’s ending?

Posted by on Mar 29, 2012 in NEWS, Original Content | 1 comment

The ‘Masses’ Affected:

The internet has been set ablaze over Bioware’s “Mass Effect 3” controversial ending. “Horrible!” as some described it. Wow! Gamers are not playing when it comes to “playing” huh? I’m hearing  everything from boycotting, to burning their copies, to returning their games — with Amazon even jumping into the fray, offering refunds, organized charities — in an attempt to fund Bioware to change the ending, to article after article of distaste.

Word on the street is that gamers are upset over the Mass Effect 3 ending mostly because it didn’t honor the choices they made from the very beginning (Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2) until now and didn’t have the impact they were expecting. This much-praised RPG from Bioware boasted that the decisions you made throughout the triology would have a significant impact throughout your journey — something gamers craved and got excited for.

At first I didn’t think it was that serious, I saw a couple of articles but no “biggie” right? Just a couple of disgruntled gamers expressing their opinion — perfectly fine. Then, those one or two articles turned into three, four, five, then literally flooded the internet before you knew it. As I saw this materialize I couldn’t help but wonder, so I came up with some theories and results on why Mass Effect 3 may have disappointed many — compiling info according to what different gamers said about their beloved Mass Effect 3 — essentially “Cause and Affect”.

Madden NFL 13: Wishlist — what I want — WHAT WE ALL WANT (Part 3)

Posted by on Mar 27, 2012 in Featured, Microsoft, NEWS, Original Content, PlayStation 3, Sony, VIDEOS, Xbox 360 | 8 comments

The Madden series has been critiqued and bashed with reckless abandon, “glorified roster update” comes to mind. It seems EA and Tiburon over the past few years have been including more and more — the gaming community, to offer their feedback on how they could make the Madden  series in general, but Madden 13 specifically better.

I will speak on some things that I feel will make Madden fans very,very happy. On the podcast (Controlled Substance) we have  a segment called “Letta 4 the Betta” and  it’s our letter — in digital form to our favorite developers to give them suggestions on how to make their games — well — better. Consider this my letter — in written form to EA and Tiburon. The “real” Madden fans and football fans in general should appreciate this piece. Feel free to comment and give feedback CCwants to hear from you.

I will go into extreme details on what I believe will make the game better and why it will make the  game better and hopefully we’ll get what we want. Let’s have some fun shall we? Part 3 is now live, also you can  read the explosive part 1  and part 2.

Street Fighter X Tekken Review

Posted by on Mar 22, 2012 in Microsoft, NEWS, PlayStation 3, REVIEWS, Sony, Xbox 360 | 0 comments

 

I never thought I would be interested in Street Fighter X Tekken up until recently. I have been introduced into the Street Fighter franchise lately just by random curiosity and a couple of people claiming that it was better than the Mortal Kombat series. With that I thought I would give Super Street Fighter 4 a try. My thoughts on Street Fighter came around in a great way. So how does this connect to Street Fighter X Tekken you may ask? Well Essentially Street Fighter X Tekken is a new Street Fighter game with Tekken characters also in it. So my expectations for this game was pretty high when having Super Street Fighter 4  in mind. We will just have to find out if this new franchise collaboration will reach my expectations.
