The BioWare Drop Zone Charity Auction starts today; it's their way of lending aide to the Edmonton Easter Seal’s Drop Zone fundraiser, in which participants dress up as super heroes and descend down the surface of a local, 28 story tall hotel to raise money for people with disabilities.

To that end, they're putting up various goods on eBay, collectables that should water the mouths of hardcore BioWare fans. Including opies of games, comics, and art books. Most are limited edition and all are autographed by the developers. Yet the most interesting prize of them all is the voice of Commander Shepard.

For “Mass Effect” obsessives like myself, the most recent of the sci-fi series’ numerous dust-ups has been what to call the next installment. “To call the next game ‘Mass Effect 4’ or ‘ME4’ is doing it a disservice and seems to cause a lot of confusion here,” Chris Priestly, BioWare’s community manager, explained on their forums.

“We have already said that the Commander Shepard trilogy is over and that the next game will not feature him/her. That is the only detail you have on the game,” he continued. “I see people saying ‘Well, they’ll have to pick a canon ending.’ No, because the game does not have to come after. Or before. Or off to the side. Or with characters you know.”

Yannick Roy, the head of the BioWare Montreal studio working on the ambiguously-named title, later dropped in to clarify his colleague’s somewhat testy assertions: “Thinking of the next ‘Mass Effect’ game as ‘Mass Effect 4’ would imply a certain linearity, a straight evolution of the gameplay and story of the first three games.”

EA made the announcement of "Mass Effect 2" official today, dating the game for 2010 but leaving Sony's console in the cold. Read More...

"Mass Effect" fans desperate for details on BioWare's sequel are in luck; we've just been told a teaser trailer for "Mass Effect 2" has shown up on the game's official web site and reveals the fate of the hero from the last game -- the news is not good. What do you think so far?

I haven't played "Baldur's Gate," but I have played BioWare's spiritual successor, "Dragon Age: Origins," and after a 10-minute session (albeit one without a proper tutorial), it planted the idea this style of RPG might not resonate with players who've come to expect differently from BioWare.
