BioWare’s Mass Effect 3 is only one short week away, and fans of the series are more anxious than ever to finally get their hands on the trilogy-maker and final game in the Commander Shepard storyline. Before the game is released, it’s a good idea to reacquaint yourself with the events of the first two adventures in the franchise. And one of the ways to do this, naturally, is through the art of rap music.

We all know how bad movies based on games tend to be (and vice versa), but there are some games out there that, if done correctly, could make some pretty fantastic movies.
One of the big ones that jumps to mind is the Mass Effect trilogy. One of the biggest game series to-date, the BioWare property takes the action–RPG to incredible places, making for an intense and compelling story and a truly must–play experience for any gamer out there.
A Mass Effect movie has been whispered about for a while now, dating back to around when Mass Effect 2was being released where Casey Hudson was quoted saying “Obviously we have a tremendous amount of interest from people in Hollywood to make a major motion picture about Mass Effect. The most important thing for us is, we don’t just want to see a movie get made. We want to see a great movie get made, if it’s going to get done at all.” That was followed by the news that Legendary Pictures had secured the rights to turn the game into a movie, but that was the last we heard about it…until now.
