Mass Effect: Andromeda's multiplayer will receive all maps for free

Mass Effect 3 may have been a disappointing end to the alien dating trilogy, but BioWare handled the multiplayer component with a bit of grace. Instead of shoving in a bunch of maps with the season pass for the game, all the extra maps were...   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

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
