This week, we're covering one of the most talked about, and often divisive, games of the last 20 years, the epic trilogy capper MASS EFFECT 3! The rest of the trilogy isn't present on the Wii U, and it can be a lot to jump in on the last chapter of an established series; luckily, MASS EFFECT superfan Katie Bray is on hand to help us dissect the game's rich universe, epic story, memorable characters, and surprisingly solid combat! But does the experience stand on it's own, and does the Wii U version keep up with it's console big brothers?

This week, we're getting sweaty and undead-y with THE WALKING DEAD: SURVIVAL INSTINCT,  based on the AMC TV show! The game casts you as breakout character Daryl Dixon, and tries to blend first-person shooting with survival sim elements, so you'll be tampering your zombie-killing with resource gathering and trading. And let me tell you, it sure is a game.
