Why You Should Play FemShep In Mass Effect Legendary Edition

Entertainment
The Mass Effect Legendary Edition is just two days away and while we've already broken down why you should give it a shot anyway (regardless if you're a returning fan or new player), we've got one more case to make. Please, for the love of all things Garrus Vakarian, please give FemShep (Jane Shepard) a shot. When you boot up the trilogy, there is an option to play as Male Shepard (John Shepard) or Female Shepard (Also referred to as FemShep with Jane Shepard). Mark Meer is the voice behind the former, with Jennifer Hale taking Shepard to new heights with the latter. With over 30 playthroughs under my belt, I can promise you that I've played every which way you can imagine: every romance - including the one night stands, John versus Jane, Renegade versus Paragon, all three endings...

Xbox Insider Members Can Sign Up For A Chance To Reserve And Purchase An Xbox Series X/S

Entertainment
Many of us know how difficult it’s been to buy an Xbox Series X/S or PlayStation 5. A global computer chip shortage has put a bottleneck on console production and whatever stock becomes available is quickly scooped up by bot-using scalpers. In an effort to circumvent scalpers and get the new Xboxes into the hands of genuine customers, Microsoft has announced a new pre-order initiative using its Xbox Insider program. Per The Verge, the program is called the Console Purchase Pilot. It gives Xbox One owners signed up to the Xbox Insider program a chance to both reserve and purchase an Xbox Series X or Series S through the console itself. For those unaware, Xbox Insider is a free program that allows members to test software updates before Microsoft releases them to the public and also...

Gabe Newell Teases Possible Valve Games Coming To Console

Gabe Newell Teases Possible Valve Games Coming To Console

Entertainment
The Orange Box gave console players Half-Life and Portal, but could more Steam games be coming to console? According to a recent Q&A with Valve's Gabe Newell, it looks like it's likely! One fan shot their shot to the king of PC and his answer has the community pretty excited for what this could mean.  One Redditor shared a clip of when they asked if any more Steam games would be coming to consoles. Newell responded, saying, "We will have a better idea about that later this year." If you were at all curious about if this is something players want, all you have to do is listen to the clip and hear the chorus of "oooohs" that immediately happened after.  You can watch the clip right here.  Obviously, we don't know what this means quite yet, but it could go a few different ways....
Destiny 2 Crossplay Activated Early Accidentally During Season Of The Splicer Launch

Destiny 2 Crossplay Activated Early Accidentally During Season Of The Splicer Launch

Entertainment
Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer is officially live and brings with it adorable baby Fallen, an attempt to hack the Vex network, and a chance to see a different side to a race that has been an enemy for far too long. While Destiny 2 crossplay is also on the horizon for the shooter's roadmap, it wasn't meant to debut so soon. Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened when Bungie accidentally turned on this feature ahead of schedule. I noticed this last night when running the new seasonal challenges but honestly didn't think too much of it at the time. It didn't even register for me that this was too soon, but The Verge's Tom Warren had no such thoughts and shared a video clip showing Stadia and PC players taking to Crucible against one another:  I can confirm Destiny 2 crosspl...
