Shadow Realms - 4v1 RPG from Bioware

Shadow Realms has its genesis in old school Dungeons & Dragons. When I first started designing BioWare RPGs back in the 90s, what drove me creatively was the desire to give players the experience I had while playing pen and paper games as a youth. The great storytelling, the feeling that anything could happen - these were experiences that you couldnt find in any other game. And the great thing was that these adventures never had an end. A good Dungeon Master could keep a story going for months or even years.

...

It is a game that finally fulfills that fantasy of a never-ending RPG where the players meet up regularly to keep their epic adventures going for as long as they want. All the enemies, traps and challenges are squarely in the hands of another player, who controls them just like a Dungeon Master. The monsters and villains are smart and unpredictable, making every battle a test of strategy and power. Best of all, everyone gets to enjoy a story that plays out like their favorite TV series, but where they decide the fates of its world and characters.

Shadow Realms isnt just hearkening back to those early BioWare PC gamesits finally bringing the magic of tabletop RPGs to the digital realm.

Apparently the word from the ESRB at this point is that the upcoming Mass Effect will receive an M rating. In a letter that was posted on the Mass Effect forums, the board cited among other things some Partial Nudity. I should warn you the following excerpt from the letter contains some minor spoilers, but theyre really inconsequential...
