The Capcom DLC fiasco continues to burn like a raging wildfire. BioWare also continues to address that they acknowledge the fan's discontent with Mass Effect 3's ending. Sega hints at a possible Shenmue HD which just might ignite enough sales to warrant an actual conclusion to one of the most original games ever made, and Microsoft confirms that there will be no new Xbox console this year, nor will there be any announcements for a new console this year, handing 2012 to Nintendo on a silver platter. These stories and more in this March 17th, 2012 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
