NHL 17 shows off the new ways to keep pucks out of your net

NHL 17, like all annualized sports games, is committed to a steady stream of gameplay improvements each and every year. I had a chance to see that first-hand at E3 last month, where I wrote about some of the more important changes; this ne...   read

EA Access is adding Need for Speed, Unravel, and Garden Warfare 2

If you like the occasional EA-published game, own an Xbox One, and are patient enough to hold off on new releases for several months or so, EA Access can be a ridiculous value. The $4.99 per month subscription program is adding three new ga...   read

Mass Effect: Andromeda ditches Paragon/Renegade system for 'shades of gray'

Given how much Mass Effect erotica exists, its fitting that the newest entry in the series will move away from simplistic binaries and towards "shades of gray." How many, you ask? Perchance 50? My ankles tied, Garrus bent me over the comman...   read

Your Mass Effect 3 ending choice won't affect Andromeda
