The Mass Effect 3 single player DLC train is just starting to gain steam, which means we're probably going to be returning to the Normandy sporadically over next few months. If DLC isn't going to be enough to slake your thirst for stories from the Mass Effect universe, Mass Effect: Paragon Lost is a feature-length anime detailing the backstory of your favorite new crew member, James Vega. It doesn't take long to see that, while the world is populated by Asari and Krogans, the movie feel like a serious (and interesting) departure from the world we've come to know.Read More

We've known about this for a while, since BioWare caved and announced they'd release an addition -- not a revision, but an addition -- to the game's end, later clarifying that it would come out this summer and be free. Now it has a date, and it's very close. It's up to you whether or not you want to risk getting your hopes up.Read More
