New Mass Effect Andromeda Trailer Marks N7 Day

My love of the Mass Effect series brought me to BioWare in 2012. I’ve connected to it on an emotional level I never thought possible with video games. I still recall the pivotal moments throughout the trilogy with fondness, and think about all the time I spent with the Normandy crew, laughing, crying, and saving the universe.

I remember the tingles I felt after becoming the first human Spectre. I remember the excitement of pursuing a romantic endeavor with Liara… then Miranda… then Tali (my Shepard broke a few hearts along the way, apparently). I remember fighting the human Reaper in a state of genuine panic. I remember “M4 (Part II)” by Faunts playing as the credits rolled, and I caught my breath. I remember leaking a few tears after my final goodbye with Garrus: “Go out there and give them hell. You were born to do this.” There’s no Shepard without Vakarian, after all.

If you’re a Mass Effect fan, there’s a good chance more than one of my memories puts a smile on your face. You’ve got plenty more of your own, no doubt, and that’s why N7 Day was created: a day each year for us to come together and share the stories, fan art, cosplay, and moments that touched our hearts.

This N7 Day, we invite you to be a part of the celebration by using the hash tag #N7Day. Now that you know my passion — what does Mass Effect mean to you?

The Secret History of Call of Duty Zombies

Treyarch’s Zombies is still my all-time favorite co-op shooter. It’s a chilling challenge that pits you and some friends against relentless waves of zombies. Your arsenal: constant communication, careful teamwork, and whatever firearms you can scrounge from the all-important Mystery Box. It’s demanding of its players but, in the end, an immensely rewarding experience that always pays off.

With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops III and its new Shadows of Evil Zombies experience upon us, it seemed like a perfect chance to take a look back at how Treyarch’s vision has evolved throughout the years. And, naturally, get a peek into its future with Shadows of Evil.

Chug a Juggernog, load your Ray Gun, and watch our in-depth discussion with Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies and Campaign Director Jason Blundell to learn how it all began.
