More On: What we're playing

EA Sports is bringing college football back without college players. Despite a record stock surge, GameStop's brick-and-mortar stores are still struggling. And Stadia will continue as a gaming platform, but Google won't develop games for it anymore.

So, this is what we're playing.

Although I didn't review Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood (Randy had that particular honor), I played the opening hours of the game, streaming it on release day. I don't want to say too much – both the stream and the review are live – but I am enjoying Werewolf: The Apocalypse in a very late-night-on-Showtime-in-1984 sort of way. If this game were a film, it would star Richard Greico and Rutgar Hauer (and maybe Kris Kristopherson). Just a ton of bloody, cheesy fun.
I've also been continuing my obsessive playing of Neoverse, the deck builder that I reviewed on Switch a few weeks back. Still amazing, addictive, and fun. I really love it.

Gamer confession, in three parts. One, the Mass Effect Trilogy is my favorite RPG series of all time. Two, it's in the 99th percentile of any sci-fi you put it up against—movies, music (?), TV, books, whatever you want. But three, I've never actually finished the last half of Mass Effect 3. I know, I'm clutching my pearls, too. I let the internet's opinion of the ending get me down. I never rolled credits myself. I was afraid they might be right and that Mass Effect could no longer be my RPG crownholder. But as the singer-philosopher OneRepublic once said, "It's too late to apologize. It's too laaaate." So, this week, with the (finally official) announcement of Mass Effect Legendary Edition, I'm ignoring that 7 out of 10 on Steam. I'm ignoring Metacritic's 6.0 user score. I'm seeing if you're still capable of being my favorite RPG series of all time.
