Humanity has reached the stars, joining the vast galactic community of alien species. But beyond the fringes of explored space lurk the Reapers, a race of sentient starships bent on “harvesting” the galaxy’s organic species for their own dark purpose. The Illusive Man, leader of the pro-human black ops group Cerberus, is one of the few who know the truth about the Reapers. To ensure humanity’s survival, he launches a desperate plan to uncover the enemy’s strengths—and weaknesses—by studying someone implanted with modified Reaper technology. He knows the perfect subject for his horrific experiments: former Cerberus operative Paul Grayson, who wrested his daughter from the cabal’s control with the help of Ascension project director Kahlee Sanders. But when Kahlee learns that Grayson is missing, she turns to the only person she can trust: Alliance war hero Captain David Anderson. Together they set out to find the secret Cerberus facility where Grayson is being held. But they aren’t the only ones after him. And time is running out. As the experiments continue, the sinister Reaper technology twists Grayson’s mind. The insidious whispers grow ever stronger in his head, threatening to take over his very identity and unleash the Reapers on an unsuspecting galaxy. This novel is based on a Mature-rated video game. From the Paperback edition.

Die Menschheit hat das All besiedelt und ist nun Teil einer grossen Gemeinschaft von interstellaren Zivilisationen. Doch jenseits der Grenzen der erforschten Gebiete lauern die Reaper - eine Rasse von lebenden Sternenschiffen, die die organischen Rassen der Galaxie für ihre eigenen, dunklen Zwecke missbrauchen wollen, in dem sie sie "abernten". Der geheimnisvolle Anführer des Cerberus-Syndikats ist einer der Wenigen, die diese Wahrheit kennen. Um die Interessen der Menschheit zu wahren, setzt er einen verzweifelten Plan in die Tat um, der die Stärken und Schwächen des Gegners entlarven soll. Dazu will er einen Menschen mit Reaper-Technologie modifizieren. Der ehemalige Zerberus-Agent Paul Grayson scheint für ihn das optimale Versuchsobjekt für seine schrecklichen Experimente zu sein. In einer geheimen Forschungseinrichtung des Syndikats wird Grayson mit der Technologie der Aliens ausgestattet. Zu spät erkennt Cerberus, dass die Reaper-Implantate längst zum Leben erwacht sind und versuchen, die Kontrolle über Grayson zu erlangen, um mit ihm den Weg für eine Invasion der Aliens freizumachen.

From the prequel novel, Revelation, to the series capstone, Deception, these original adventures weave together a science fiction epic as they follow Starship Alliance commander David Anderson and his young protégée, scientist Kahlee Sanders, in their battle to save humanity. Packaged together for the first time, this exhilarating eBook bundle includes: REVELATION ASCENSION RETRIBUTION DECEPTION Since discovering a cache of Prothean technology on Mars in 2148, humanity has spread to the stars. Now, on the edge of colonized space, ship commander and Alliance war hero David Anderson investigates the remains of a top secret military research station. Who attacked this post and for what purpose? And where is Kahlee Sanders, the young scientist who mysteriously vanished from the base hours before her colleagues were slaughtered? Sanders is now the prime suspect, but finding her creates more problems than it solves. Partnered with a rogue alien agent he can’t trust and pursued by an assassin he can’t escape, Anderson battles impossible odds on uncharted worlds to uncover a sinister conspiracy—one he won’t live to tell about.

Videospiele sind aus der heutigen Zeit kaum wegzudenken. Lenkte man vor etwa zwanzig Jahren noch Pixel durch zweidimensionale Welten auf dem Monitor, muten die detailreichen Avatare der Games heute nahezu real an. Diese Abbilder des wirklichen Lebens stellen für viele Menschen Welten dar, die parallel neben dem RealLife existieren. Computerspiele sind daher wichtige, virtuelle Spielplätze, denn sie erlauben es dem Spieler zu experimentieren. Dazu gehört etwa das Austesten von Grenzen oder das Annehmen einer völlig anderen Persönlichkeit. Identifikation mit einer Spielfigur ist in dieser Untersuchung ein wichtiger Punkt. Denn in der vorliegenden Forschung wird das Hauptaugenmerk auf die Rolle von Moral und Ethik in Videospielen gelegt. Diese Forschung soll insbesondere einen Überblick darüber liefern, inwiefern dies der Fall hinsichtlich des Spieles Mass Effect 2 ist. Unzählige tiefgründige Handlungsstränge verlangen hier den Konsumenten Entscheidungen ab, die oftmals sehr nahe an der Schmerzensgrenze der persönlichen Wertvorstellungen liegen, diese auch in Frage stellen und die Identitätsarbeit der Betroffenen möglicherweise beeinflussen.

Sie gaben ihm alles – aber er wollte mehr! Vor langer Zeit vertrauten die Götter einem großen Krieger drei Talismane an, um diesen gegen die Mächte des Chaos zu wappnen und die Welt der Sterblichen zu beschützen. Aber Daemron wandte sich gegen das Gute – und forderte die Götter selbst heraus. Als Strafe wurde er verbannt und hinter einem magischen Siegel eingesperrt. Um dieses Siegel zu brechen, pflanzt Daemron einen Samen in vier Kinder: die Brut des Feuers.

Excerpt: Mass Effect is an award-winning, worldwide mainstream-popular series of futuristic RPG third person shooters developed by the Canadian company BioWare and released for the Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows and, from the second installment, for the PlayStation 3. The first game in the planned trilogy centers around a player created character named Commander Shepard and their mission to save the galaxy from a race of mechanical beings known as the Reapers, and its followers, including the brainwashed Saren Arterius. The first game sees Shepard facing Sovereign, a Reaper left as a vanguard, who plans to allow the Reaper fleet currently hibernating in extra-galactic dark space to invade the Milky Way and destroy all sapient organic life, continuing a mysterious cycle of destruction. The second game takes place two years later, and sees Shepard battling the Collectors, an alien race abducting entire human colonies in a plan to help the return of the Reapers. The third and final game will center on the final battle against the Reapers. Since the beginning the series has been a major critical success. Both games have received critical acclaim for their storyline, characters, voice acting, choices, and the depth of the galaxy.
