Dragon Age: Inquisition combat makes me want to play Final Fantasy XII

Let's be fair, a lot of seemingly arbitrary things make me want to replay Final Fantasy XII. A lack of time coupled with a naive hope for an HD re-release always keep me from doing so, leaving me in a perpetual state of want...

Play Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare in bed with Remote Play

I played a ton of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare on Xbox 360, and now I'm getting into it again on PC. Still super fun and arguably one of the best shooters of the past few years. On August 19, the game comes to PlayStat...

EA announces Xbox One subscription service and it's actually not bad

PlayStation Plus, Games with Gold, and now EA Access. Electronic Arts has announced a new Xbox One-exclusive subscription-based service ($4.99 per month, or $29.99 annually) that gives its members access to The Vault, "a coll...

Is BioWare's new nightmare called 'Shadow Realms' or 'You've Been Chosen?' photo
Is BioWare's new nightmare called 'Shadow Realms' or 'You've Been Chosen?'
by Bill Zoeker

BioWare sent out a mysterious teaser trailer for its new horror IP. The trailer implies surreal psychological terrors, but the identity of this game is even more of a mystery. EA's trademark activity points to the name "Shadow Realms," but the channel hosting the video and the website for the game are called "You've Been Chosen."

BioWare's 'Nightmare' teaser trailer is unexpected

BioWare sent emails to fans overnight that include a "Nightmare" teaser trailer for what appears to be a new intellectual property. The video is live action, so it's hard to say what this will be other than "Hey, the guy wit...

NHL 15 flaunts its alliteration with the Superstar Skill Stick

Slapshots from the point, cheeky tip-ins, and wristers through traffic are all perfectly fine, but when you play an NHL game, you want to embarrass your opponent. You want them going to get their jock out of the rafters...

So, uh, EA is giving out The Sims 2 Ultimate for free photo
So, uh, EA is giving out The Sims 2 Ultimate for free
by Jordan Devore

EA recently announced the end of its technical support for The Sims 2 and in doing so said that players would be given a free The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection upgrade as thanks.

That was an unexpected move, but this one's even more surprising: folks who don't even own The Sims 2 can also get the game and all of its expansions for free.

You just need to have an Origin account and, from the Games tab, redeem the product code "I-Love-The-Sims" -- it'll remain active until July 31, 2014 at 10:00am Pacific.

Never once thought I'd own any Sims expansion content, and now I have it all. Wild!

EA improves revenue in first quarter of 2014, delays Dragon Age and Battlefield

As Electronic Arts' first fiscal quarter came to a close on June 30, the publisher found that it had beaten expectations for profits and revenue. EA credits much of this success to the runaway success of Titanfall. CEO Andrew...

Dragon Age: Inquisition pushed to November

Battlefield Hardline, and now Dragon Age: Inquisition -- it's delay day at Electronic Arts. BioWare has moved Inquisition from October 7 to November 18 (Nov. 21 in Europe). Considering how stupidly packed with high-profile re...

Good, good: Battlefield Hardline delayed to 2015

Visceral Games is pushing Battlefield Hardline from October 2014 to early 2015 in order to better meet player feedback from the beta it ran this year. After Battlefield 4's troubled launch, I doubt any of us need to be convin...

FIFA 15 puts priority on emotions and giant dogpiles

Last month, I did my best to tell you what EA Sports wanted to put emphasis on for its three big sports titles this year. Then, it went and undermined me by releasing videos that say exactly what I wrote. In the unfortunate ...

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15

About a month ago, I explained how EA Sports' big focus for NHL 15 was physics. In the event that you didn't believe me (or hate reading), this video adequately sums up the studio's intentions. Watch it to learn how pucks bounce or to see Matt Duchene crash the net like a total badass.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is just as pretty indoors as out

The first part of this walkthrough with creative director Mike Laidlaw managed to get me excited for Inquisition despite not touching previous Dragon Age games. This one, too, looks pretty darn cool, even without bears to freeze. Plus, Dorian's sweet mustache.

Who is yelling in this Madden trailer and why, why, why

I wanted to fit a "Red Warrior is about to die" joke in this trailer for Madden's new Gauntlet mode. I got as far as "Redskins is about to die" before I started watching this video and was greeted with an over eager, discordant voice over. Bosssssss levelsssssssssssss. Who thought this was a good idea?
