Highlights from the EA showcase – E3 2017

E3 2017 has well and truly kicked off with EA’s press conference earlier this morning. Of course, we were still fast asleep at 5am, but that doesn’t mean we’re not across it all! Here are the highlights from EA’s conference. BioWare announce a new IP The RPG giants revealed a teaser trailer for a new sci-fi/fantasy game called Anthem. The trailer has some serious Game of Th...[Read More]

Mass Effect Andromeda review: Galaxies behind

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. As someone who was a huge fan of Bioware’s original Mass Effect trilogy, despite its ultimately unsatisfying conclusion, I had some high hopes going in to Mass Effect Andromeda. I was looking forward to diving back into a sci-fi universe packed with inter-species politics, engaging characters and some real chin-scratching ethical dilemm...[Read More]

Star Wars Battlefront II looks like it’s learned from the mistakes of the first

This morning we were treated to a trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II, which for reasons that escape me isn’t called Star Wars Battlefront IV. A sequel to Battlefront‘s 2015 reboot, which had just a few problems, it looks like DICE/EA have learned from the past. The first reboot was a pretty lackluster experience, sure it looked amazing, but the gameplay was severely limited. With no ...[Read More]

Guys, Mass Effect: Andromeda has a new trailer and it’s pretty rad

Mass Effect: Andromeda, Bioware’s next instalment in their gigantic space opera franchise, is just around the corner, due for release on March 23 (March 21 in the US). That less than two month wait is still going to feel like a long time for those excited to jump back into the series’ sprawling, deep sci-fi universe, so as a nice gift (or perhaps a cruel exacerbation of the wait time),...[Read More]

Mass Effect: Andromeda has a release date, and it’s soon

After many years of silence and a slow drip feed of information in the past few months, developer Bioware have confirmed Mass Effect: Andromeda will be launching on March 21 2017 in North America and March 23 in Australia/Europe. Bioware general manager Aaryn Flynn made the announcement this morning in a blog post where he thanked players for their patience, and surprisingly “...[Read More]

Battlefield 1 review: A bleak masterpiece

Reviewed on PC & PS4, PS4 copy supplied by publisher. The second you boot up Battlefield 1 you’re introduced to a series of soldiers who lose their lives no matter how well you play. The quick succession of deaths and the chaos fuelled muddy setting is designed to do one thing, show you the horrors of war in one of the darkest periods of the 20th Century. It’s done incredibly well,...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 Titan Tips – Mechs maketh the man

Previously we looked at the Pilot; now we move onto the titular Titans. First, let’s start with general ways to earn your Titan. The most straightforward way to earn build time is killing minions, pilots, and even just damaging Titans. Capturing objectives and amping points in Amped Hardpoint matches will also help to build your Titan faster, so PTFO. The most neglected method, but also the fastes...[Read More]

Watch the Mass Effect: Andromeda cinematic trailer here

It’s November 7, at least in the US, and that means it’s N7 day, which in turn means it’s time for more Mass Effect: Andromeda news. We got our first taste of the next Mass Effect at E3 earlier this year, with the news our previous progress won’t impact the new universe. Then at the Playstation 4 Pro announcement we got to see the first proper gameplay demo running on the n...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 Pilot tips – Wall run and gun effectively

There’s a lot to learn if you’re new to Titanfall, and here we’ll cover the basics as well as a few more advanced Pilot techniques. My first tip to both new and returning players is to simply play the campaign. It offers a variety of situations and environments and really helps to teach the basics of both Titanfall 2’s gunplay and movement. I even recommend grabbing the Pilot collectables, as many...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 review: Rise of the Titans

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. This doesn’t make any sense. A good multiplayer-focused AAA FPS that also has a good campaign? What is this, 2007? Yes, the follow-up to Respawn Entertainment’s flagship title has built upon everything its predecessor had and even managed a few surprises. Titanfall 2’s campaign puts you in the boots of Rifleman Jack Cooper and after the untimely d...[Read More]

Battlefield 1 Behemoth guide – Wreck or get rekt

While we trudge on through Battlefield 1 for our review, let me just take a second to present a guide to tackling the classic multiplayer shooter’s newest addition to the formula: behemoths.  These monstrosities will spawn for losing teams depending on the score difference and time that has passed, and they have the power to turn the tide of the battle if used effectively. Here are some tips...[Read More]

FIFA 17 review: Cutting corners

The following review contains spoilers for FIFA 17’s new story mode, so if you’re the sort of person who will be upset by having FIFA spoiled for them, take a long hard look in the mirror. FIFA 17 is simultaneously one of the least ambitious FIFA games we’ve seen in a while and the most ambitious. Does that make sense? No? Let it happen. The core gameplay doesn’t depart too...[Read More]
