'Entertainment innovation" coming 2016

Electronic Arts kicked off their 2015 E3 conference with a bang, revealing Mass Effect: Andromeda, a new entry in the Mass Effect series. Not much is known other than a "holiday 2016" release date.
Honestly? I'm still in for more Mass Effect games -- I never really cared that "the ending for the third game sucked," because that doesn't completely negate three fantastic 30-hour experiences.
Casey Hudson rides again
Casey Hudson had been with BioWare for some time before he left late last year, and is most notably known for the Mass Effect series as of late. It seems as if he's headed on to another pasture, joining up with Microsoft to w...
Don't let the reddit thing scare you off

Mass Effect 4 drops last-
Hopefully, these assertions aren't disingenuous
Like my grammy after we put her in a home, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 are slowly fading away to make room for the new generation. Aaryn Flynn, general manager of BioWare Canada, spoke about how Dragon Age: Inquis...
Decade-old animation tests uncovered!
Part of the beauty of the Mass Effect series is that you can be whomever you want. There isn't a pre-ordained hero that tries to save the galaxy; you can make Shepard male or female, good or evil, gay or straight. "I'm C...

Also, we are eight years old.
Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.
It's back, but I wanna see something new
BioWare made an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend to divulge some of the first details about the upcoming Mass Effect title, but all we really know for sure at this point is that there's going to be a new Ma...
