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]

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]

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]

Mass Effect Andromeda won’t be affected by previous trilogy choices – E3 2016

While reporting on Mass Effect Andromeda’s kind-of-a-trailer from the EA Play event on Monday, I pondered as to whether or not players’ decisions in Mass Effect 3 would have any impact on the upcoming game. I was hoping perhaps Andromeda would give some meaning to the choices made throughout Mass Effect 3 that turned out to barely influence the ending at all. Well, while speaking to IG...[Read More]

Bioware teases Mass Effect Andromeda – E3 2016

Although it teeters on the edge of being one of those annoying “in development” videos, this is the most we’ve ever seen of the follow up to the Mass Effect trilogy. Shown by developer Bioware during the EA Play event earlier this morning, the video comprises of members of the production team creating the various people, aliens and environments in the game, along with a first loo...[Read More]

These are the Star Wars games you’re looking for – E3 2016

With EA’s conference at E3 wrapping up, we can now look back and pick at the gaming carcass for meaty morsels of news. Well that’s what we tell ourselves anyway. So let’s get the BB-8 rolling and check out the latest Star Wars news. EA seem to have a lot of fingers in Lucas pie this year, with various studios collaborating with them on Star Wars titles. Check out the video fresh ...[Read More]

What I want from Mass Effect: Andromeda

Over three years ago now, I was getting super pumped for the third and final installment of the Mass Effect trilogy. I’d managed to convince my mum to give me the day off school (as any self-respecting 17-year-old would’ve attempted in my position) and, after getting my hands on a shiny, glorious N7 edition Xbox 360 copy, I spent the next 16 hours dividing my time between playing and texting a fri...[Read More]

The internet hunting for Bioware’s new IP is amazing to watch

  It all started, as many online frenzies do these days, with a tweet. The Game Developer’s Conference was last week, and upon its conclusion Alistair McNally, one of the head developers at Bioware (creators of Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Baldur’s Gate and Knights of the Old Republic), sent out this sentimental message. And that’s #GDC2016 in the books. One the things I love most abo...[Read More]

Will we ever see a game like Neverwinter Nights again?

– Karly Taylor Still cruising on a D&D high from my Sword Coast Legends article, it got me thinking about previous Forgotten Realms video games. Blasphemously skimming over Baldur’s Gate, I found myself reminiscing about the lesser-known Neverwinter Nights instead. It’s a third-person RPG developed by Bioware back in 2002, set in the same D&D universe as Baldur’s Ga...[Read More]

In Memoriam: Mass Effect

– Tom Heath Whereas our previous In Memoriam articles have focused on the unavoidable deaths of characters from beloved video games, today we shall be paying tribute to one that was completely non-compulsory, and was twice as heartbreaking. The game is Mass Effect, RPG maker Bioware’s sci-fi dating simulator that also happened to have a kick-ass, choice driven narrative and, as such, I...[Read More]
