Anthem's hilarious and horrifying cutscene bugs

At the Very Least, Anthem's Cut Scene Bugs are Hysterical

So they might give you Andromeda flashbacks, but the bugs in Anthem's cutscenes are at least hilarious. The game's early access launch has also had some major connection issues, so it's turning out to be a pretty bad soft-launch period for the game. We can hope the tweaks will be ironed out before the full launch, but […]

Mass Effect: Andromeda Deluxe Edition Finds Its Way Onto EA Access

Mass Effect: Andromeda's launch was certainly a hot topic. The game was met with huge fan backlash, but since it has seen a lot of work. Patches have sanded off the edges, and now, what many found janky and messy looks fairly impressive. That's why now might be a great chance to dive in. If […]

Microtransactions Are Alive And Well, And We Made It That Way

Big budget, AAA games publishers like EA and Activision absolutely love micro-transactions. And from their perspective, we can't even blame them. They're making money hand over fist and that is exactly what they want. But that's only in the short term. The micro-transaction revenues netted from Destiny 2 and Shadow of War typically end up being used to […]

Andromeda Dev Blames Problems On Lack Of Diversity At Bioware

There were many things wrong with Mass Effect: Andromeda by the time the game shipped, but developer Manveer Heir has blamed the large share of the issues on a lack of diversity at Bioware. Which, we pretty much expected. Lack of diversity isn't just apparent at Bioware but with about every game developer, especially those working for […]

Mass Effect: Andromeda Will Get No Single-Player Expansions

Mass Effect: Amdromeda is a continuous train of disappointment. The game was rushed, repetative, and riddled with odd motion capture and facial animation bugs. And now we won't even be getting any single player expansions to make that campaign a bit less repetative. ME: Andromeda will just get multiplayer DLCs like weapons, skins, and maps. […]

GTA V Is A Top Selling Game Of 2017 Despite Releasing 4 Years Ago

  In case you ever thought it was too late to succeed, Grand Theft Auto V, which released in 2013, is still one of 2017's top selling games. Yep, GTA V sold more copies in 2017 than NBA 2K17, MLB The Show 17, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.  Not only is the 4 year old game still one […]

YongYea is the first YouTuber to come out and show everyone just exactly what the new 1.06 patch does for Mass Effect: Andromeda and the results are interesting.

EA's End Of Year Results Show A Sales Record For Battlefield 1

EA, predictably, had a damn good year in 2016. They released their 2016 end of year results earlier this week, and it looks like Battlefield 1 took home record sales by returning to WWI. What is noticeable is that there is no mention whatsoever of Bioware's Mass Effect: Andromeda which was released late into the fourth quarter […]

Bioware Just Can't Catch A Break With Andromeda, Apologizes Over Trans-Character Controversy

The same day they released the long awaited facial animations patch, Bioware also issued a statement dealing with the recent controversy over Mass Effect: Andromeda's trans character.

Bioware has increased streaming support for those in the streaming community, tutorial placement has been changed […]

Bioware Has Heard Your Complaints About Andromeda And Are Working On It

From bizarre facial animations, weak gay male romance options, to your usual bugs, Mass Effect: Andromeda has had a rough launch week. Bioware has been monitoring the complaints and intends to work out some fixes in the next few weeks. "It's been a week since we officially launched Mass Effect: Andromeda worldwide," Bioware said in a […]

Andromeda's Gay Romance Option Is A Disappointment

Oh Mass Effect: Andromeda. This is the game that tried, but didn't quite make it on a lot of fronts. While the multiplayer is absolutely solid, the single player campaign which should be the heart of any Bioware title is lacking in so many ways. Yes, the facial animations are awful, the body animations are also terrible: […]

'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Gets A Price Cut On PC In UK
