Looking for something to do this week? Well, I can help you! It’s time for the Picks of the Week!
Game: Mass Effect 3
Really this is the obvious choice, but as the game is such a huge release you’d be silly to pass it up. Not much to say without spoiling, but I’m sure we’re all interested in how Shepard’s fight against the Reapers turns out. So get to it?
Book: Birthright – The Sin War Trilogy Book 1
With Diablo 3 on the horizon, now is a good time to go and refresh yourself on the lore. Going back into the early past – long before the Diablo games take place – to the legendary Sin War. Learn of the Nephalem, the origin of the pact between the angels and demons, and a little bit more information about some of the characters we find references to among the items of Diablo 2 – and will find references to in Diablo 3. But even just on its own, discounting Diablo 3, Birthright and the Sin War trilogy are good reads that I recommend any fan of dark fantasy take a look at.
Song: The Saga Begins by Weird Al Yankovic
Take one part American Pie, one part Star Wars, one part comedy, and a whole helping of Weird Al and you have a hilarious parody retelling the story of one of the least popular Star Wars movies – Episode One. But unlike the movie, the video for the song is absolutely worth seeing twice!
Hope you enjoy these recommendations, and Happy Gaming!
