Quiet Fronts – Gaming Updates
Well, the lack of obvious updates. Let me explain a bit…
Mass Effect 3 is done. There aren’t going to be any more updates to multiplayer and there aren’t going to be any more DLC packs.
Star Trek Online has constant, almost quarterly, updates but in between there’s massive bug fixes and the wait for more content feels pretty long. That said, Legacy of Romulus was HUGE so I totally get waiting a while for the next pile of stuff.
Neverwinter transitions from Open Beta to “live” on the 20th of June. We’re expecting the first module but they’ve been pretty tight-lipped about a lot of the contents. I’m hoping for the Ranger class, but honestly, at this point I’ll take any class.
Diablo III doesn’t seem to be getting an expansion any time soon, which I think it sorely needs. I think Blizzard focused mostly on porting it to console and that’s a great idea, just it feels like things are a bit lacking in the mean time.
XCOM Enemy Unknown is supposedly getting a DLC sometime in the future, but I have no idea when that would happen.
So, it’s all quiet on the western front… as far as I know.
Anyway, I’ve had a busy day recording more XCOM and messing around in other games. I’m going to get back to that.
Until next time!
