Well, that's all for this week's round-up! I'll be shutting myself out the outside world for a little bit to play ME3 but I'll be back next week with another slab of news! If you're lucky, you just might see a review for it pop up with the next round-up

The Mac and PC verisons of CS:GO can still play together, it's the PS3 & PC players who can't play together anymore.

And I'm not sure why Valve wants to release a Steam box. There's already one. It's called a PC. If they do come out with one, let's hope it's the end of these shitty consoles holding gaming back.

Pumped for the new Bioshock. However, is it really news that a new COD game comes out every November?

I havent played the other Mass Effects. I watched a roomate play ME2 for awhile, but never played it myself. Would jumping right into ME3 be a mistake or is it something i can get into without playing the others?
