The Mass Effect Trilogy is one of the finest sagas we've seen in video game history, in fact it's one of the few collections of last-gen games that we'd love to see given the remaster treatment on current-gen consoles. But if you can't wait for that, you can pick up the Mass Effect Trilogy for under a tenner right now on PC.

BioWare recently took to NeoGAF to poll fans about what they'd like to see from a Mass Effect Trilogy remake, and we're all for the idea. Experiencing one of the most impressive Sci-Fi space operas in recent history in a single package, brought up to date for new-gen systems, is a tantalising prospect.
But only if it's done right. To this end, we'd like to add our voices to the debate and discuss exactly what we'd ideally want from a new take on the Mass Effect trilogy.
Let's start slow and simple, because this one's non-negotiable. To be worth buying as a truly complete collection, all the DLC from each game needs to be included -- or at the very least, everything except Pinnacle Station. You can keep Pinnacle Station.
Obviously we're big value fans here at Dealspwn.com, but there's a more serious point to be made, since many of the DLC packs genuinely add content and context to the all-important narrative and story. From Ashes, for example, split the fanbase and raised up a storm due to it being an optional bonus despite containing a pivotal character and extra storyline, while all of the expansions helped to flesh out the universe in some fashion. Aaryn Flynn has already suggested that a potential remake would include the DLC, "organically implemented" into the storyline, so hopefully this will be a no-brainer.
Oh, and the masterful Citadel expansion will feel even more awesome when enjoyed after 80+ hours of bonding.Click here to read more...
What the new generation of consoles really needs is loads of games we've already played to death.
That seems to be the general consensus at Big Publisher Incorporated, because yet another revamp appears to be on the cards. Rumblings suggest that the Mass Effect Trilogy is headed to PS4 and Xbox One, which begs the question: do we actually want or even need it?
Well... maybe. Perhaps BioWare will even have time to show us Tali's face, if they're not too busy raiding royalty-free image banks.Click here to read more...
Annoyingly, this is taking ages to drop with most online retailers sticking to a £40 price tag. Hurrah for Cool Shop then who have knocked almost half of the price off. If somehow you're yet to get stuck into the Mass Effect series we'd recommend thinking up a good excuse to drop everything for a month or two and get involved. This include ME2's Cerberus network pass for numerous DLC drops.

BioWare has officially confirmed that the Mass Effect Trilogy edition will be available in Europe next week, setting the PC/Xbox 360 release date for Friday November 9th and dating the PS3 release for Wednesday December 7th. The original Mass Effect will presumably make its PSN debut on that date.
They've also helpfully explained what DLC comes with which version.Click here to read more...
The Mass Effect Trilogy Edition will include different DLC packs depending on which platform you purchase it on. Good news for PC players, in that you'll get the first Mass Effect's (terrible) DLC alongside a Cerberus pass for Mass Effect 2 and online access to Mass Effect 3 - but bad news for Xbox 360 owners in that you'll have to buy Pinnacle Station and Bring Down The Sky separately. The PS3 version is still up in the air, despite more confirmation that the original Mass Effect will be hitting US PSN as a standalone download.
However, EA still isn't willing to confirm if and when the trilogy edition is headed to Europe.Click here to read more...
Hello! Welcome to the relaunching of Game Buzz as a weekly half-hour podcast centred round the week's news. Every Saturday we'll be aiming to provide plenty of comment-laden wafflings and lashings of opinionated banter as we dissect the hottest stories of the week. We'll still be broadcasting the PWNCAST on Sundays, though that will maintain a focus on games themselves, gaming culture, and broader topics.
This week has been a bit of a slow burner. We take another look at BioWare this week, discuss some hands-on time with Halo 4, look at the early pricing for the Rift dev kits, and talk about the upcoming Mass Effect Trilogy.
Parental Advisory: We've tried to keep it as conversational and informal as possible, and you should be warned that there may be some instances of strong language.

BioWare has announced that all three Mass Effect games will be bundled together into a single boxed edition next month. The Mass Effect Trilogy contains over 75 hours of story content and all three original games in a , though we don't know what (if any) DLC will be included.
This will mark the first time that PS3 owners can experience the whole narrative and take a character through all three games without playing the original on a different console. The original Mass Effect will also be made available as a standalone PSN download in due course.
Things kick off on the newly announced 'N7 Day' - 7th November - in the US. This will likely mean Friday 9th for us Europeans, but we'll keep you posted.
