The Normandy is going to get a tune-up
Mass Effect 3 has had its fair share of problems. Bioware, however, is stepping up and releasing a patch for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 to fix some minor and major bugs. Here is a list of what to expect from the update:
► Fixed issues when in some cases Shepards customized facial features from ME1/ME2 may not be properly imported to ME3.
► Fixed an issue when quickly and repeatedly selecting to Resume a Save could result in Player Level reset and a potential locking of powers.
► Fixed an issue when selecting Multiplayer in the Main Menu while under a poor network connection could result in an unresponsive state.
► Fixed a potential crash while accessing an in-game terminal from Eden Prime level.
► Fixed an issue when attempting to login while Server is down. It would display a Server Down message and accepting the Server Shutdown message would shut down the game.
► Fixed a potential memory crash while loading a Quick Save of a custom FemShep.
► Fixed an issue when restarting missions and acquiring an above max amount of weapon mods results in displayed debug text on-screen.
► Fixed an issue when an unresponsive game state could occur during transition after the Conduit level.
► Fixed an issue when DLC game saves can be accessed from an account without DLC if another account on the same computer has access to the related DLC. (PC Only)
► Fixed an issue when saves from different accounts on the same computer may become locked if one account has access to DLC which the other account does not. (PC Only)
► Fixed an issue when potentially the game could enter unresponsive state when transitioning from the Holding Docks area to the Normandy Docks area of the Citadel. (PS3 Only)
The update will arrive for PC on April 9th, and then for consoles on April 10th.

Get your hands on the anticipated shooter early
Ghost Reacon: Future Soldier launches on May 22nd for PS3 and Xbox 360 users. There are a couple of ways for gamers to get access to the beta that opens April 19th.
PS3 Users: Anyone with a PlayStation Plus subscription will have access to the beta on April 19th.
Xbox 360 Users: The first option is to use the code that is included with purchases of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction. The second option is preordering a copy of Ghost Reacon: Future Soldier, which will earn you a code.
The beta will feature two game modes. The first game mode is Conflict. Conflict features multiple objectives that each team must complete. Completing objectives earns points, and the team with the most points after fifteen minutes wins. The second mode is Saboteur. This mode won't be available right away, but it will be on April 19th. Saboteur leads teams to find a neutral bomb and eventually plant it at the enemies' base.
The two maps that will be available are Mill and Pipeline.
And the winner of the Golden Poo is...

The website Consumerist.com recently opened a poll up for their readers to vote on the worst company in America for 2012. The final round of voting consisted of Electronic Arts and Bank of America. In the end, EA took home the Golden Poo Award Companies that were in the poll included: AT&T, Walmart, Comcast, PayPal, and many others.
Gamers must be truly upset with EA's actions recently. For a video game publisher to beat out a popular bank like Bank of America is sort of a big deal. 250,000 people voted for this poll, so calling this a "fluke" would not be accurate. For the gamers asking, "How is EA a bad company?" The Consumerist does a good job of summarizing gamer's thoughts:
"There have even been numerous accusations that EA and its ilk deliberately hold back game content with the sole intent of charging a fee for it at a later date. It's one thing to support a game with new content that is worth the price. It's another to put out an inferior and occasionally broken ח product with the mindset of 'ah, we'll fix it later and make some money for doing so.' "
EA puts out a lot of games each year as a publisher. Some of the games are very popular releases. With this recent wave of bad-reputation, they may have to change some things to keep their fans holding on.
