A deleted scene from Mass Effect 3 has been put together by a Reddit user with the help of the game’s script. The screenshots used are from in-game cutscenes and not from a deleted sequence.
In this scene, Ashley asks Commander Shepard about his experience after his death at the beginning of Mass Effect 2 and his subsequent revival. It’s a short but powerful scene that adds a bit of layer to Ashley’s and Shepard’s characters both. We are not sure this was cut from the final game, but then again, a lot of things gets edited out in the production process.

Borderlands can be quite the type of game that grants extensive customizations and thus spawns near-infinite replayability – well at least that’s what we’ve learned from the first title. Now, during the recently held PAX event, Gearbox is suggesting that the much-awaited Borderlands sequel, will in fact improve even further the customization aspect of the franchise.
They also revealed something called Mechromancer – a female character that most notably is a half machine, half human, and apparently controls a robot that goes by the name D374-TP… or better just call it Deathtrap. Mechromancer won’t be included in the retail disc, with Gearbox saying it’s in fact an add-on character planned as post-launch DLC. Though you’ll be paying for this thing if you really want it, or just pre-order the game and get it free once it’s done.
Also, Gearbox stated that there will be a new character customization mechanic, which will accordingly allow players to experience with the option more often when their character progress and unlock more items such as gear and clothing.
Well that’s it. Borderlands 2 launches on September 18. Are you looking forward to the game?
Nintendo has yet to come out and offer a firm outing for the awaited RPG sequel, Pokemon Black & White 2. However, a Japanese online retailer believes that the game will be released this summer, on June 23 to be exact.
The new Pokemon title was initially announced for release sometime in June, so the 23rd day of the month doesn’t look much of a farfetched bet, especially if we’ve taken into concern that Pokemon games usually release on Saturdays in Japan, as Andriasang notes.
A western release of Pokemon Black & White 2 is likely to follow a few months later.
People Can Fly’s 2011 gore-fest Bulletstorm may have taken a liking with gamers for its outrageous gameplay, it however, didn’t do enough business for EA or Epic Games, it’s publishers, to consider a sequel.
Speaking to Gamespot, Epic boss Mike Capps said that “from a sales perspective it was good, but not amazing. I think EA was hoping we’d do better.”
“We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly. We haven’t announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon.”
“I’d love to go back [to Bulletstorm]“, he added. “I think there’s more to do with Bulletstorm. Heck, it kind of ended wanting more. I’d love to see another project, but right now we don’t have anything to talk about.”
Capps also partly blamed the PC version for the game’s non-success, citing piracy as one of the major problem.
“We made a PC version of Bulletstorm, and it didn’t do very well on PC and I think a lot of that was due to piracy. It wasn’t the best PC port ever, sure, but also piracy was a pretty big problem,” he said.
MEFCC is just around the corner and today we have a host of new updates about the event. The biggest one of course is the fact that the schedule of the event has been announced and it’s packed with something for everyone. Movie buffs will be glad to see that there are some excellent screenings arranged in collaboration with VOX Cinemas while a lot of workshops for manga and anime fans as well as people like me who want to learn filmmaking are present at the event as well. Plus, gaming championships.
The following is the schedule for the event for 20th and 21st April:
That’s not it. Far from it, in fact. Read the rest of the schedule at the MEFCC website.
Also, here’s the cool promo trailer that the guys have shot which has been directed by Ali F. Mostafa (City of Life). Stormtrooper walking down Dubai? Sold. Watch it below.
Now comes the bad news. Chad Michael Murry, who was previously announced to attend the event, will no longer be able to attend it due to a filming schedule. He tweeted this:
@MEFCC has been incredible 2 me & the show will b exquisite! Sorry 2 miss u guys this year but there will be more I’m sure. Cheers
He will be missed, but the guys over at MEFCC were quick enough to offset that with a great new announced. Max Landis, the screenwriter of this year’s surprisingly excellent superhero movie ‘Chronicle’, will also be attending the event and taking part in a filmmaking panel along with Ali F. Mostafa and Ashraf Ghori!
Are you guys looking forward to the event?

The true success of a video game can be measured by the number of times it has been featured on Reddit.
Oh wait, that’s not right. Okay, let’s try this again: The true success of a video game can be measured by the number fan-made shorts, parodies and covers it has inspired, which eventually gets featured on Reddit. Yup, that sounds about right.
Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one such example. The RPG reached a level of popularity unmatched by any game last year. It even gave the Internet a new meme involving arrows and knees.
Below is a list not of those, thankfully, but of some of the funniest, creative, and outrageous fan-made movies based upon and inspired by the fus-ro’s and the hoo-haaiia’s of Skyrim.
Morrowind and Skyrim Theme Piano Violin
While it loads: Pianist Lara6683 (left) and violinist ViolinTay (right) tunes up a superlative mix of the theme songs from Morrowind and Skyrim. The piece starts with Morrowind and cleanly seeps into Skyrim as if it were part of the same song. The tune is beautifully soulful and brings the majestic and epic feel of the two games quite well.
The Dragonborn Comes
While it loads: With 6 million views on YouTube so far, there’s a good chance you have already seen this. Here’s an excuse to watch it again. Malukah takes Jeremy Soule’s ‘The Dragonborn Comes’ to an altogether different level with a haunting rendition that will leave you spellbound for the entire two mins of it. It’s so good, in fact, that she would totally get accepted in the Bard’s College.
Skyrim Epic Rap
While it loads: Dan Bull puts together a rap on Skyrim we wish it would play whenever we would face a dragon in the game. It talks of a Dragonborn who wears a hat with badass horns, and who scoffs at the thought of you being a better warrior than him with a dragon shout that’s sweeter than sodastream.
How I Play Skyrim
While it loads: Michael Shanks has played a lot of Skyrim. Because only those that have trudged for hundreds of hours in Skyrim can truly understand the “unrelentingly, unforgiving, uninterruptedly epic experience” that the RPG is. The butterfly in the end is just…true.
The Best Skyrim Fan Film
While it loads: It’s not easy to make a Skyrim film. Especially when you want to make it the “best skyrim” film there is. There is the production to be taken care of, the direction, the location, the costumes, the epic-sounding dialogues, the glitches, invisible men, crashes, poor frame-rates, flying NPCs, and all that. It’s hard business.
Skyrim: Dragon Hunt
While it loads: Don’t mind the inconsistencies in this video – like the crossbow and the armor – Tim Antos’ short film came out a good months before Skyrim. Despite that, Antos manages to capture the feel of the ‘dragon hunt’ quite well, and unlike many fan made short, this boasts pretty decent production values.
Skyrim: The Arrival
While it loads: Here’s another fan-made movie with good production values. Skyrim: The Arrival is shot in first-person and tells the story of a dragonborn who “follows a dragon called RuneRax to earth encountering many friends and foes to discover a string of conspiracies surrounding Oblivion and the new realm, earth.”
While it loads: How would Skyrim be in 2012? It would still have people using the ‘bucket on the head’ trick to steal things, apparently.
While it loads: Lindsay Sterling’s and Peter Hollens’ Skyrim video is goofy but they make amends with an enthralling rendition of ‘Dovahkiin’. The back track is made up entirely of 114 tracks of Hollen’s voice, which is 113 more than the voices I can sing in.
