Role-Playing Games Week Recap 11/24/2021
Mass Effect might get a show, Black Friday is live, list of December 2021 game releases coming.
Amazon rumored to bring Mass Effect to life
According to deadline, Amazon is working on a deal to bring Mass Effect to their platform in a new series. Their new series Wheel of Time has done well and seems to open the eyes of the rest of the team that the fantasy genre can be profitable for Amazon. Mass Effect would be a great universe to bring to life in a streaming series so I can’t wait to see if this comes to life.
There is also a strong indicator that Mass Effect legendary edition will be coming to Game Pass soon. EA Play has been part of Game Pass for a while now and it would only make sense to release the legendary edition on Game Pass as part of EA Play. This would follow their usual cadence of releasing a game and after a few months moving the game to EA Play.
Black Friday deals are live
If you are a frugal gamer then you should be shopping for games now. Almost every retailer has started their Black Friday deals online. From Wal-Mart to Best Buy to Gamestop if you are looking for a deal on games now is the time to buy.
Don’t forget about online stores like the Microsoft store. I picked up Beast Quest for 90% off last night. It doesn’t get great reviews but for about $2 I couldn’t pass up a game. This is a great time to pick up Game Pass Ultimate cards at discount prices to extend out your Game Pass subscription.
December Games For Gold announced
- The Escapists 2 – December 1 – 31
- Tropico 5 – December 16 – January 15
- Orcs Must Die – December 1 – December 15
- Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet – December 16 – December 31
If you haven’t played Orcs Must Die I highly recommend it. It was a game I played when it first came out and it is a lot of fun. Orcs Must Die is a live-action tower defense game where you build traps and battle invading Orcs.
