Mass Effect 3 gets a voice

We all know at this point that there will be a Mass Effect 3 extended cut DLC, free for anyone playing the game, and set to help players finally close Mass Effect like it should be, but we have not know any of the particulars till now. It is now known that the voice actors for Admiral Hackett (Lance Henriksen), EDI (Tricia Helfer), and Kaiden (Raphael Sbrage) have signed on to help us end the saga. We still have a bit longer to wait, but it is slated to come out this summer.

Here is our hope that the rest of the cast will sign on as well, to give the Commander Shepard the send away he deserves. Keep your eyes peeled here as we will tell you more as it develops.

 

Diablo 3‘s woes continue

The five character classes of Diablo III. L-R Wizard, witch doctor, demon hunter, barbarian and monk.

After all of the trouble that Diablo 3 has faced since its release, you would think by now that the great Gaming Powers that Be would cut it a break and allow it to rest a bit. Sadly that is not in the stars, so to speak.  It has been reported today at GamesIndustry.biz that there are rumors flying of a new problem for those players enjoy Diablo 3. It appears that hackers are stealing accounts and taking items and gold, which is pretty much stock in trade, but what makes this story bizarre is that Blizzard Entertainment uses an authenticator to protect against these types of attacks.

What we are hearing is that even players who have and use the authenticator religiously are also being hacked, and wiped clean, which would be an indicator that the authenticators are doing very little indeed to stop the cyber thieves.  At this point the only warning we can give players is to log in daily, check your account, and if you notice anything out-of-place, notify Blizzard immediately so they can get right on fixing your account for you. Also, change your password. The setup that I have always used is as follows. Make sure your password has at least one capital letter (exmpl: H T P), at least one lower case letter, at least one number, and at least one special symbol (exmpl % * @) which will make it much harder for cyber criminals to figure out your information.

BloodEagle’s ghetto hangout

This weeks show was brought to you by Word to ya Motha!, a new energy drink being sold by that outstanding company We Ain’t real. That’s right, you, our dear listeners get to witness first hand what happens when a Native American attempts to gain street cred by going full on Ghetto, and failing miserably. Do not fret though, as what I lack in street cred I more than make up for in Gaming cred, although I am not even sure what that is, or if it exists, but if it does, I am chock full of it! This weeks episode sees some impressions of The Secret World, a bit more about Guild Wars 2, and then we highlight some companies making what we feel to be bad decisions. With our new, upcoming changes, we will start doing reviews, and I wanted to ask you, the people, what it is you want to see in a review done by us. Obviously we will never accept money or kickbacks for reviews, nor will we succumb to pressure by developers to do a favorable review, but I would like to know what things in a review make you sit up and take notice, as we get set to start designing our review process. The one thing we have settled on is that each review will be done three times, once by each of us, because we feel that each of us have different likes and dislikes, and will bring something different to each game that we do review. With that aside, do you want to see a 5 star system, a 10 point system, or maybe even a 100 point analysis?

ORIGIN Symposium III

Not Single Playerery

Ever had “one of those weeks”? That seems to have been my week this week…..ALL week. If it was not one thing happening to piss in my Cheerios, it was another. Life need a big, red REDO button, that if things have not gone as you had planned them by Thursday afternoon, without waiting to see how crappy your Friday is going to be, you can just hit the button, and start over again at Monday morning, with a full week ahead of you to figure out how to get it right. I wonder how much R&D I would need in order to create that button? This weeks show was great, with some lively discussion about The Secret World, Guild Wars 2, making the perfect game, or in Chaelura’s place, the perfect hardware vehicle to play the perfect game on, and as usual, a bit of user feedback from our LDG SpecCor Michel. We are getting closer to the big reveal of all the great stuff we have coming your way, so stay tuned true believers!

(Released March 23rd 2012)

This week is a BIG show, running 1 hour and 16 minutes at its full length. Based on audience feedback, I am adding a new feature to the show notes this week, each segment will have a number beside it letting you know at which point in the show each segment starts. This will allow you to quickly find the segments that are of interest to you. If you are wondering what made this show so long, it is because there was some good info out this week, as well as the upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic 1.2 patch. We recorded the show as normal, only going over by 6 minutes, then if you listen past the end of the show, you will be able to sit back and hear the first part of the highlights of the 1.2 patch. Next week we will cover the remainder. While you are listening and enjoying yourself, do us a favor and follow us on Twitter, Like us on Facebook, even leave us a comment so we know what you are enjoying, or not enjoying about the show. I hope next week the implement the Galvion Drinking game, and this week was devoid of a Golden Shovel award due to no one pissing off the audience.
