Rating: 5.0/5 (2 votes cast)

The week ended with a few big surprises. One of those surprises comes in the form of the open beta being scheduled for the Fallout MMO, the only downside is that gamers will have to wait all the way up until 2012 to get in on the action. Mass Effect 3 is also on the way and BioWare even has a timeframe in mind for when gamers can expect to see it surface. Capcom also has a mystery game in the works for the Xbox 360. These stories and a whole bunch of new trailers for fan-favorite games and upcoming titles in this January 23rd edition of the Blend Games Weekly Recap here at Electronic Theatre.
