Mass Effect 3 Has Commander Shepard Save the Universe From A Reaper Takeover

Mass Effect 3 Has Commander Shepard Save the Universe From A Reaper Takeover

In Mass Effect 1, we had to save the Universe from complete destruction by taking out a Reaper called Sovereign and the evil ex-Spectre, Saren. Then, in Mass Effect 2, we had to create a team, with help from The Illusive Man, that goes on a suicide mission to stop the Collectors from turning the Universe into nothing but death and darkness. Now, in Mass Effect 3, hundreds of Reapers are invading Earth and the surrounding systems, in which you MUST stop at any cost, or the Universe will be lost forever. Taking control of Commander Shepard once again, this is the invasion you have been trying prevent since Mass Effect 1. You will take control of Commander Shepard next year, as Mass Effect 3 is set to release in Buffalo, NY in early 2012 at your nearest Gamestop, Best Buy, Walmart, Target and anywhere else games are sold in the Buffalo, NY area.

Roles Are Being Reversed This Time in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

Roles Are Being Reversed This Time in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

Who hasn't played Resident Evil 2 on the PSone or on the N64, right? If you haven't had the oppurtunity, no worries. No knowledge is needed of that game to enjoy this new story. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City takes players back to the first time Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield make their debuts, but this time the roles have been changed. Instead of playing as the heroes of RE2, you play as, you guessed it, the bad guys!

Out From the Sea and Into the Sky in BioShock Infinite

Out From the Sea and Into the Sky in BioShock Infinite

Who could argue with the fact that BioShock  & BioShock 2  were incredible games? The graphics, the sound, the playability, the story; all of it just so well done. The underwater city of Rapture was such a captivating place to be, along with a cast of colorful characters. The brains behind the creation of Rapture, Andrew Ryan. The silent antagonist, Jack, from BioShock 1. The Subject Delta Big Daddy of BioShock 2. The normal-turned-insane splicers and, of course, the Little Sisters and Big Sisters. There are tons more characters in both games, but BioShock Infinite  looks to surpass these last two games and takes a chance flying high up into the clouds with a new city, where every American has the right to bear arms ALL of the time. The city of Columbia.

Frank West Returns For His Take On Fortune City in Dead Rising 2: Off The Record

Frank West Returns For His Take On Fortune City in Dead Rising 2: Off The Record

As we all know, Frank West has covered wars. He's also covered the story behind the Willamette Incident in Dead Rising 1, where a zombie outbreak took over the entire city of Willamette, Colorado. There, Frank, being a freelance jounalist, was dropped into a shopping mall via helicopter to get the inside scoop on what really caused this outbreak. He met many people in this mall, some who needed to be saved, some who were complete psychopaths and some who also tried to figure out what was going on. In the end, we learned the truth about how this all came to be. (I'm not going to spoil the ending for those who haven't played or fully beaten DR 1) What we didn't know is if Frank had survived or not.
