It’s a busy time this week what with Game Developers Conference in full swing. I’m about to head off to the event to check out a localization panel, because covering that is exactly the sort of thing that will make 1UP’s traffic soar as the Internet rushes in to learn more about concurrent multi-regional voice recording sessions. Yep.
Also big this week? Mass Effect 3. I didn’t review the game for 1UP because I didn’t have enough time to finish it; our original plan was for Thierry to do a “renegade” review while I would tackle the “paragon” angle, but since I haven’t seen the controversial ending yet I decided to settle for letting him fly solo and taking part in our video review instead. I still have a lot to say about the game, though; it’s just that I’m going to say those things in the form of a series of op-ed pieces over the coming weeks instead of a single review. I posted my first one this morning, in fact.
