Daily News - 22nd May 2012 - Mass Effect 3 Re-Ending News, Wii U controller Redesign? and More!

Hi everyone. I know it's been DAYS without a proper update, but we had no internet in the house and almost immediately after we got it back I had a wisdom tooth removed, so was in a bit of a coma. to make it up to you guys, I fully intend to hammer a podcast out, probably this weekend, though whether I can get enough guys together will be the challenge. I need to start thinking about how to get more views aswell... Ugh, impossible tasks. Updates will return with their usual (ir)regularity from now, thanks for your (justified im)patience.


Bioware Bringing Back Mass Effect 3 Voice Actors For Extended Endings

That ending stuff, eh? Remember that? Remember when Bioware said they were gonna work on extending it and then we heard nothing for a month or so? Well the silence has ended! G4 report that atleast 3 of the voice actors for the game have come back to record more dialogue. So far the only confirmed voice actors returning are Admiral Hackett, EDI, and Kaiden Alenko. If only those 3 characters had extra dialogue I'd end up pretty disappointed, but I'm sure there'll be more. Here's what Kaiden's voice actor, Lance Henriksen, had to say about the process:

"I just did another session with them. They were saying there's a little bit of a problem with the abruptness of the ending. So we did a whole series of things to add to the end of the game, to live up to the quality they've been doing. Usually, when a guy loses the game, the game shuts down; it's over. It's done. The players don't like that."

This guy gets it! Almost makes me like Kaiden more! ...Nah, nothing could make me like Kaiden.

He may have been well boring, but he keeps in shape, I'll give him that.



Wii U Controller Rumoured To Have Endured A Slight Redesign

It's gonna be impossible to tell what it will be like to wield a Wii U Controller until you get one in your hands, but until that point it's probably safest to assume that Nintendo have some idea of what they're doing. They've taken the Wii U controller and kept the basic layout (touch screen in the middle, 2 sticks, ABXY buttons, Start, Select etc.) but have updated it with Gamecube-style analogue sticks, and repositioned Start and Select buttons to presumably make them more ergonomic. I loved the old Gamecube analogue sticks, so keeping those is a surefire way of making me happy. i like the look of the controller, just hope the eventual Smash Bros game will play well enough!

Like I say, need to hold one before I judge, though it looks an abolsute beast to wield!


And finally...
