We’re back for episode #102 of Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast with your hosts Erik Norris, Alex Keen, Joey Davidson and Mike White.

On this week’s show we discuss two major games, one which just released (read our snap judgments!) and one that just saw its first trailer hit the internet. We are of course talking about Mass Effect 3 and Assassin’s Creed III, respectively. Both Erik and Joey dive into what they’re enjoying about BioWare’s epic trilogy concluder, covering the breath of options available in the game, as well as touching on the Kinect integration, multiplayer, and arguing over how a single statistic determines if you’re ready to take the fight back to those Reaper bastards.

In regards to Assassin’s Creed III, our crew shares their excitement about the Revolutionary War setting of the game. We also manage to compare Ubisoft’s latest to both The Patriot and The Last of the Mohicans, although we doubt Mel Gibson or Daniel Day Lewis will be showing up to the party (we can always dream!). Finally, we ponder if Assassin’s Creed III will finally put Desmond Miles in the spotlight for more than 15 minutes.
