VIDEO GAMES: Get off the fence!
Well we're here folks. Tonight marks the release of Mass Effect 3. The final installment in the Mass Effect trilogy, and most peoples' most anticipated game of the year. There's a lot riding on ME3 as the first two entries in the trilogy helped build an immersive story filled with characters that gamers have come to love. I can't imagine anyone is really on the fence about getting the game because you fall into 1 of 2 camps. Either you're like me, and never really got into the ME series so you won't start with the third, or you've played the first two and you're at home playing ME3 as I type this (minus Hawaii). But in case you were wondering, here's a roundup of some top game sites' reviews. IGN gave ME3 an incredibly strong 9.5, Gamespot gave it a 9.0, 1UP stamped it with an A, it currently sits at a 93 on Metacritic, and G4TV gave it a perfect 5/5. So yea, it sounds like ME3 not only lives up to the hype, but exceeds it. Enjoy.
