One of the most exciting Xbox 360 games for 2007 is Mass Effect, the hot new RPG from powerhouse developer BioWare (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic). In September, Microsoft hosted the X06 conference in Barcelona to give us a look at its lineup. The Mass Effect trailer there dazzled attendees, and it's finally going to hit Xbox Live and the official website this Friday... meaning tomorrow. We'll link you to the forum thread with its measly details, just so you know for sure. What we are sure of is this - this is one of the games of 2007. Keep your eyes peeled for more.
Shooting the hell out of your friends in Rainbow Six Vegas? We are - but that doesn't mean the game doesn't have problems. Apparently it has a laundry list of them, because Ubisoft's official forums have been graced with a whole mess of fixes we can expect to see go live... soon. The post doesn't say exactly when. But if you want the full details of what you'll see get fixed up, check it out - right here.
Sega has launched the official Virtua Fighter 5 site... but it's pretty damn empty right now. Outside of a movie that plays when you load it up, all you can do is read some pretty generic game info and look at screens (while listening to the series' patented blend of tuneless synth-rock.) Why are we sending you there? We know there will be good stuff later, so we figure you can bookmark it now. Meanwhile, our latest hands-on impressions, screens and movies will ease the pain.
Rockin' the zone
