Anyone looking to blast off to Mass Effect: Andromeda's universe next month needs to know if their rocket can even get off the ground. Don't worry, space cadets; there's no need for a super-futuristic rig to travel to worlds beyond. Today, ...   read

Teamwork makes the dream work with Mass Effect: Andromeda's power combos

Mass Effect has always been about getting by with a little help from your friends. The companions play a key part, each of them contributing to you not getting killed. In Mass Effect: Andromeda, their combat skills have a more active ...   read

Dead Space 3 wasn't originally designed for microtransactions

For all intents and purposes, Dead Space 3 is a pretty big failure. It eschewed the ideas that the first two games were building on and contained all of the worst bits of the modern games industry. There was a microtransaction-laden system ...   read

Natalie Dormer will be voicing Lexi in Mass Effect: Andromeda

Natalie Dormer, of Game of Thrones fame, will be voicing the Asari doctor Lexi in the upcoming Mass Effect: Andromeda. She seems to be the only big name celebrity in the game, at least as far as reveals go. The previous titles had a few fam...   read

It's been some time since Respawn first started talking about Live Fire, its pilot-only six-on-six mode, but I have to commend today's release date announcement relative to the release itself. The free update drops tomorrow, February 23 wit...   read

Here's an in-depth look at Mass Effect: Andromeda's combat system

This space conflict isn't getting resolved without a space firefight. Or, more accurately, many space firefights. Mass Effect: Andromeda labels you as the Pathfinder and that sounds peaceful enough, but every path through this game se...   read

Battlefield 1's Winter Update brings ribbons and higher level caps

Aside from They Shall Not Pass, an upcoming Battlefield 1 expansion, DICE has also been toiling away on the game's Winter Update. I don't like seeing the "W" word this time of year -- no more snow, please! -- but I do like the sound of high...   read

This ain't no fakie: Skate 3 got added to EA Access today

The Good About-Video Games Writer in me says that I should pack this standard fare news post full of cool skateboarding terms like kickflip, grind, and elbow pads. Doing so demonstrates a familiarity with both video games and skateboar...   read

BioWare finally remembers that forcing 'good or bad' choices doesn't work for every game

BioWare used to be a master of nuance. Growing up I'd play their RPGs in awe of their ability to tell a story without having to resort to rote "this is good or bad" moral choices. Often times the outcome was grey, and you'd have to live wit...   read

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will span multiple eras

Based on where Star Wars Battlefront started and where it has ended up after numerous updates and several paid expansion packs, I'm expecting better things for the sequel. A story mode is, of course, the big one. We already knew to expect t...   read

Tony Hawk says new game is in the works, without Activision's involvement

For gamers of the late '90s and early 2000s, the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series was a phenomenon. Not only had we never seen an extreme sports games be so well realized, but each new iteration added so many new elements that it felt like the d...   read

The new Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer has a Krogan, and that's enough

The new cinematic trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda puts protagonist Ryder in a precarious position. He's an explorer, a man with few resources relative to the army that the antagonist has. It's not really any different than Commande...   read

You can now get a real Big Boner on Xbox One

Shadows of the Damned is a pretty overlooked game from last generation. It may not be Suda51's best title, but it has a really great story, solid gunplay, and some awesome visuals. It also provided us with an excellent soundtrack by Silent ...   read

EA claims Nintendo is making a bigger effort for third parties with the Switch

Once again, a big publisher has a lot of nice things to say about a new Nintendo console without actually supporting it. Remember how excited EA was for the Wii U? Well, it still has a grand total of four EA games for it -- and two of those...   read

After quite the wait, toddlers are now in The Sims 4

The impossible has happened: toddlers are now in The Sims 4 by way of a free update. I'm an on-again, off-again Sims player at best, so my reaction here is a general "Aww, that's cute. Look at those lil outfits!" But the folks who are in f...   read

Don't ignore CES this year because there's gonna be some Mass Effect gameplay

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) takes place in Las Vegas at the beginning of each year. It's sort of an odd one for us in that it's just a smidgen too tech and hardware-centric to really get excited about. It's on our radar but it rarel...   read

Mass Effect Andromeda ruled out for Nintendo Switch by game's producer

In true EA fashion, they want to see if the Switch sells before fully supporting it. It sure beats the Ubisoft strategy of going all in, calling it the best thing since sliced bread, vowing your undying support, then pulling out within a fe...   read
