Developed by Bioware and published by Electronic Arts, Mass Effect 3 is scheduled for a U.S. release on March 6, 2012, March 8, 2012 for Australia, and March 9, 2012 for Europe. This chapter in the Mass Effect franchise will follow the Mass Effect 2 DLC, “Arrival”. This time commander Shepard and the rest of the galaxy will take on the invincible Reapers. This version sports a new combat and cover system, and improved AI.

Players will have the option to import files from Mass Effect 2 opening up about 1,000 variables, otherwise players will experience a fresh game with no origin. A four player multiplayer combat mode called Galaxy at War will also be available, but you wont be able to play as any of the single player characters. Players will have to create brand new characters. You can play as human or non-human characters including krogans, drell, salarians, asari, and turians, each with their own set of special powers. multiplayer missions will affect the single player campaign which looks to be deeper and more difficult than the previous two versions.

We here at couch geek are eagerly awaiting this game and are especially excited about the Kinect functionality which will allow players to control the game using their voice. This should dramatically change the gameplay and make it more immersive. Imagine not having to pause the game to open menus to change weapon or use powers. Characters will respond to your voice commands, order them to cover you, take cover or use special powers and weapons. People will be buying the Kinect just so they can play this game!

The Mass Effect 3 demo will be available for download on Valentine day February 14, 2012 for XboxPS3PC, and will include multiplayer mode. Get it and shoot us a line to tell us what you think.

If you haven’t already done so you need to demo ‘Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning‘ on your PS3, Xbox360 or PC. This open world RPG is a collaboration between the founder of Image Comics and creator of Spawn, Todd McFarlane, former major league baseball pitcher and superstar Curt Schilling and New York Times bestselling author, R.A. Salvatore.  The 45 minute demo is absolutely spectacular! We here at Couchgeek cant get enough of it. I for one have  already played it 4 times and want more! The fights are epic and weapon switching is seamless. No more pausing the action to go into a multi level menu just so you can switch from a sword to a hammer or other secondary weapon. The smart button assignments makes it a breeze. This game is forever going to change the RPG genre. Click the Kingdoms of Amalur link above to learn and more.
