Just typing the date “March 6th” gives me goosebumps! This Tuesday marks the release of Mass Effect 3, the long-anticipated finale to BioWare’s RPG space opera that’s coming to Blu-ray and PSN. As a series devotee, I’m dying to see how my storyline plays out, especially how it will build upon the (often poor) decisions I made in Mass Effect 2. If you want to hear more early impressions for Mass Effect 3, listen to our discussion on the new episode of PlayStation Blogcast.
