Mass Effect 3 Review

With the end of one of gaming's most critically acclaimed trilogies, does Bioware deliver an ending the Mass Effect universe deserves or has Electronic Arts made everything they touch turn into a pile of cow pies? *Disclaimer: Reviewed on the Xbox 360*   Story: The universe is on the brink of extinction thanks to a sapient race known as "The Reapers."  All of this drama has been building up through two games and Commander Shepard is still the one running around trying to get the entire universe that the Reapers are real.  Now that the Reapers are attacking every single species in the universe, the universe has no choice but to listen to Shepard.  Despite the apparent danger, the other species were not willing to unite and take on the Reapers.  With that said, Shepard has to be peace maker and unite the species to fight the Reapers who threaten to doom the entire universe. We begin the story on Earth.  Everything se...

Weekend Box Office for March 9-11th

This weeks top ten: Dr. Seuss' The Lorax- $38,8 M John Carter- $30,1 M Project X- $11,1 M Act of Valor- $6,9 M Silent House- $6,6 M A Thousand Words- $6,1 M Safe House- $ 4,8 M The Vow- $3,8 M This Means War - $3,7 M Journey 2: The Mysterious Island- $3,6M   John Carter opened up this weekend with a poor second place with 30.1 Million. So far the buzz for this Sci-Fi movie has been lukewarm due to complaints about  uneven plot pacing. With other movies similar to John Carter opening up with stronger numbers, many critics consider it to be a flop.

Expand your Pallet

Recently I had a chat with some of the guys in MediaBeast and the topic of motion controllers, and I realized something about gamers. We are picky people....It's sometimes worse than my aunt trying to feed my 2 year old cousin.   I look at gaming like food. Some food you might have to get an acquired taste to enjoy it. Or sometimes if you eat one type of food, like organic food, it may be hard to turn back to junk food, because you feel that it is the right food to eat. On the other hand you have people who only eat "healthy" food and when someone with junk food comes along then that person just won't eat it, hell they might look down on people who don't eat the food that they eat. I feel that sometimes you might want to eat that bag of potato chips every so often. Treat your self to something different. You shouldn't eat only one food group, that's why we have a food pyramid. Oh wait they changed it.....now it...

App of The Week: Sleep Cycle

We all hate waking up for school or work after a great or terrible night of gaming with your buddies or playing with that guy that calls you a homo for using the USAS-12. Waking up in the morning sucks. This semester I'm in classes from 9am to 10pm on Mondays and Wednesdays and one class on Friday and I also have work on the days where I'm not at school. This schedule would stop most normal people from playing videos games at night or even try to run a blog. Alas I am no normal person if you haven't figured this out yet. Not only do I play video games, I also have to study for my school work too. So now you're probably thinking, "Wow this guy must really hate waking up in the mornings then", and to be honest you're correct. I actually hated waking up in the morning, but I have found out something that has recently made waking up in the mornings a breeze. There is an app on iTunes called "Sleep Cycle", and how it works is pretty...

What is… The Hype Review Series

What is the Hype Review System? This is MediaBeast's new video review system on YouTube. What we are trying to do with this new review series is capture the excitement or disappointment that a gamer typically has with a game. We split the series into three parts: Part One: Hype Up! Part Two: The Morning After Part Three: When The Smoke Clears   Part One: Hype Up! What this episode captures is the initial hype up that we are feeling for that particular game. Before a game is released, people generally have a level of excitement towards a game. This is due to how well the game is advertised, whether it has a demo, and the general buzz for the game. When we do our Hype Up! Episodes we will: Give our Likes/Dislikes Give our"Hype Level" for the game. Give Release Date Info The Hype Level is scaled from zero out of five. Zero being someone being hyped for Elmo Counts to Three, and five being someone being hyped ...
