New Mass Effect 3 DLC in the Works

How does more Mass Effect 3 DLC sound to you? Looks like we can expect some more pretty soon.... and a huge chunk of the team is involved, according to designer Jos Hendriks:
"It’s all hands on deck for this one. Pretty much every ME3 DLC writer here in Edmonton is involved. (which would include both Patrick Weekes AND John Dombrow."
And while chief composer Sam Hulick didn’t score the previous DLC packs, he tweeted that he is back and working on "an unannounced Mass Effect 3 DLC" last night. Composer Sascha Dikiciyan told Eurogamer that her and Cris Velasco are also in on it. If you’re in the mood for sad music, Hulick said:
"Tossing in piano and muted strings for this one particular piece. High potential for tears."
And c’mon... you can’t not like Joker, which is why you will be pleased to know that he is most likely making in appearance in this DLC. Producer Caroline Livingstone tweeted to him:
"@SethGreen Thank you for yet another fantastic session. And thank you for being such a kind person. You are lovely!"
Looks like this DLC chapter is shaping up to be the biggest yet, considering how many people are working on it. Since some people are disappointed in what the Omega pack had to offer, hopefully this will be redeeming!
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
