18” Replica Mass Effect Normandy Ship, Coming Soon

The BioWare Store is now accepting deposits for those looking to purchase a super detailed 18” replica of the Normandy spaceship from the Mass Effect series. The replica is limited to only 1,500 pieces, and I’m sure they’ll sell fast. The deposit is $150, with another $150 to be charged when the replicas actually release this August/September of 2013, meaning the replica will cost $300 plus shipping.

A Little Bit on the ‘Your Patch Needs a Patch’ Side: I usually wait until a game gets a physical release with all the DLC before I buy, but with all the hubub about the game’s ending, I picked up Mass Effect 3 when it was on sale a few weeks ago. The game had a glitch where players couldn’t import their custom characters’ faces if they were created in ME1 like mine (as opposed to ME2). But I heard that Bioware had patched the issue so I didn’t worry. Well, I finally threw the game in yesterday, let the 360 apply the patches, and guess what. My face is still broken.
I checked out Bioware’s support forums and it looks like the patch fixed the problem for most players but not all. It’s been about a month since this has been discovered but Bioware haven’t even acknowledged the problem. Good thing I’ve invested 80 hours into this character.
Now that consoles are almost always connected to the Internet, there’s no escaping the mentality of “ship now, patch later,” so I tend not to complain. But when your patches don’t even fix the problem I tend to regret giving you my $40.

Normandy, We Have a Problem
Mass Effect 3 players everywhere are complaining of a bug that won’t let you import your character from the first two games. That means you leave behind your face and moral decisions. Not cool. According to the Internet, this is happening in both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
I try not to buy new releases because of that whole $60 thing but I was going to break that rule for Mass Effect 3. Now I think I’ll be holding off until I hear this bug is fixed.

"Don’t fuck with Aria." Leading up to the release of Mass Effect 3, Dark Horse Comics will be releasing Mass Effect: Invasion this October. Paul Renaud did this variant cover of Aria T’Loak for the first issue.

Mass Effect 2 hitting PS3 January 2011.

They said it would never happen…but it has! Mass Effect 2 will be coming to PlayStation 3 in January 2011 with “hours of bonus content”. If you’ve never played a Mass Effect title you simply have no excuse come the start of next year - this is a winner of a series and you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything else quite like it anywhere else. Hats off to the boys at Bioware for taking the plunge with Mass Effect and taking it out of comfortable territory.

Let’s just hope they don’t ruin it!
