Action-adventure games have always had a special place in my heart. Before I knew Super Mario Bros 3 was a platformer, I considered it an action-adventure game. You were jumping on enemies heads, traveling to distant lands, and wearing different suits to unleash new powers. It had all the make up of a current action game. My brother and I would take turns playing as Mario and Luigi in the game’s “sudo” co-op mode. Playing Mario Bros 3 on my NES, was a fun event in our household. The interactions between my brother and I, in person, were enough for us back then. So what has changed so much from early 90′s? Why are classic single-player franchise’s getting force-fed online multiplayer?

I’m a huge Mass Effect fan. I have all the games across the Xbox 360 and PS3, and I intend on buying Mass Effect 3 Special Edition on the Wii U. However, Mass Effect 3 misfired on a few key points, but what really leaves a sour taste in my mouth with Mass Effect 3. Is the blatant laziness of copying Gears of War’s hoard mode, the annoying fetch quests that were useless, and the utter laziness of making all the original endings the same. Now that we know Mass Effect 4 is in development, here are some major features the game needs to have in order to return to its former ‘Mass Effect 2′ glory and innovate all together.
Mass Effect Trilogy hit stores yesterday for the 360 and PC, now Bioware is hosting the First Annual N7 day like we reported yesterday.
The awesome Mass Effect Trilogy now available in stores. Bioware is hosting the First Annual N7 Day. Hit the link for details.

Mass Effect 3 has some new DLC for the singleplayer. The Groundsie Resistance weapon pack is a single player only pack that adds seven additional weapons to commander Shepards arsenal.
The Xbox 360 and PC version of the Mass Effect Trilogy have already been dated and now we have a leaked date for the PS3 version based on a few retailers.
Straight Right, the developer working on the Mass Effect 3 port on Wii U will be working on another Wii U port from a Square Enix branded game.
Mass Effect 3 Omega is one of the biggest expansions in Mass Effect history. Mass Effect 3 Omega, a Xbox 360 timed exclusive, has been priced and dated.
We have recently discovered that the BioWare cofounders, Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk have retired and we now have BioWare’s reaction to their leave.
There are new details for those PS3 gamers who have not played Mass Effect 1 and are looking forward to the release of Mass Effect Trilogy on the PS3.
