Mass Effect is getting four spin-off novels bridging the gap to Andromeda

The Mass Effect series will be getting four new spin-off novels bridging the gap between the trilogy we all know and love and the highly anticipated fourth entry, Mass Effect: Andromeda, due in Q1 2017.

"The novels will act as prequel and sequels to the events in the games and will become part of the overarching Mass Effect saga. They will focus on key characters and answer the many questions fans have been asking," explained publisher Titan Books.

The first book is being penned by acclaimed sci-fi author N. K. Jemisin, who was nominated for both a Hugo Award and Nebula Award for her debut novel The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. That was later expanded into the Inheritance Trilogy.

It also won't feature any "quick time events," those button-mashing, stick-waggling action moments introduced in Resident Evil 4.

Gray market reseller wants to make amends, indie dev remains skeptical

Not much has been accomplished, but they're talking

Grey market game reseller G2A and indie game developer Tiny Build have been involved in a sort of public relations war over the sale of Tiny Build's games through the service. It now looks as if G2A may be willing to adjust its business practices to be a bit more developer-friendly.

The entire episode began when Tiny Build discovered $450,000 worth of its own products had been sold through G2A, our previous story stated. Later, CEO Alex Nichiporchik was able to purchase his own game codes from resellers on G2A and link them back to credit card fraud perpetrated through Tiny Build’s online store.
