November has come once again to grace its presence upon the games industry. You can tell because every store that carries new games visibly sinks a little bit every Tuesday. So then, what jewel shall we find in this week’s pile of new games?
This year has truly been the year of the Role Playing Games so far hasn’t it? We started off with Final Fantasy 13-2, went into space with Mass Effect 3, and two weeks ago we climbed up a titan in Xenoblade Chronicles.

He makes lifelike props from movies and video games, and his latest project is that of the signature assault rifle from Mass Effect (Pictured above).
RPGs comes in many shapes and sizes. You’ve got your standard D&D style game with dungeons and dragons and knights. You’ve got your JRPG with your spiky haired, androgynous protagonist and ludicrous plotlines. Then you’ve got your Bioware RPGs. ”What’s a Bioware RPG,” you may be asking. Well, play anyone of their RPG, and you can bet that all they’re other RPGs are going to have some very similar mechanics.
