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 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.

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.

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]

E3 is underway, with the EA Play event being first off the ranks. EA has been teasing a lot of reveals in the lead up to the event, so let’s begin with possibly the biggest: Battlefield 1. EA livestreamed an hour worth of Battlefield 1 multiplayer gameplay, but sadly you would have to have been awake at the literal crack of dawn (AEST) to see it. Instead, EA have dropped a quick gameplay tra...[Read More]
