Video Games. Mass Effect 3 Story Ending Leaked?

masseffct3

Mass Effect 3 -- Release Date March, 2012

The story ending of Mass Effect 3 may have been leaked.  Internal files made their way on line and were taken from an earlier form of Mass Effect 3's multiplayer beta files.

Mass Effect 3  is due out March, 2012 for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

Here is video box art for Mass Effect 3.

The latest news on this topic is that Bioware may be working on a new epic ending for Mass Effect 3.  In the meantime, Bioware is urging video game players  not to read the story files if they want to experience the purest form of the story.

In my opinion, leaking how the story ends is like someone telling you the ending of a movie you had planned to see. Hopefully video game companies will put into place controls, if possible, to prevent these actions from occurring in future games.

My minute is up!  Thanks for visiting my website and please come back soon.

Article:  Latest Call of Duty Video Game Breaks Sales Records

The numbers are in!  Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 set a first day sales record, with a whopping  $400 million in sales in its first 24 hours in stores! In fact, Activision's video games sales of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 broke it's own first day sales record from last year when  Call of Duty Black Ops sold $360 million in sales on its first day of release.

The number of units sold of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3?  6.4 million copies within its first 24 hours of release in the U.S. and U.K.!

Electronic Arts' Battlefield 3 also had good news regarding the number of units sold.  Battlefield 3 sold 5 million units within its first week of release -- making it the fastest selling game in Electronic Arts' history!

Here is a picture of video game players/customers lined up to get their copy of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3.

Ms. H's take:  I think the record breaking number of units sold as well as the sales of Call of Duty Modern Warfare on its first day of release is very impressive. Activision seemed to have been prepared by ensuring there were enough games available to satisfy the overwhelming demand for this game.

Based on  the first day's sales, it looks as if Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 will be even more successful than its predecessor -- Call of Duty Black Ops!

Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary has been remastered in HD from the original game that debuted on the Xbox in 2001. This game helped to revolutionize the first-person shooter and introduced one of the most iconic science fiction universes of all time.

Video Games: A Different Kind of Video Game - Family of Heroes

Article:  With the Help of a Video Game, Virtual Help for Families of Veterans

Happy Veterans Day!   Veterans Day is when  we honor those who are fighting or who have fought in wars to protect our Great Nation.  Not only do we honor those who are currently at war, but those who fought in wars in the far and not so far distant past.  Today is their day; however, I believe it would be fitting to recognize military heroes throughout the year as well! Veterans -- Thank you for your service!

I'm happy  to discuss a video game that is geared to help families of veterans who may be in need of help.  

The game is Family of Heroes which is  an interactive role playing game developed by Kognito targeted for families  to help communications with veterans returning from military deployments.

The video game lasts about an hour and follows three families who face different challenges.

Psychologist Barbara Van Dahlen who runs a veterans volunteer program called Give an Hour, states this game may not be the right method to help all families, but is a way to offer a variety of options to get information and training out to the affected families.

Here is a graphic for the Family of Heroes video game.

Ms. H's take:  I believe offering an interactive video game to help communication between families and veterans is to be applauded.  I agree with the V.A. officials who state the Family of Heroes interactive video game is not expected to take the place of other traditional programs such as face-to-face outreaches, help liines, support groups and other means to assist veterans and families of veterans who may be in need of help.
