Is BioWare Teasing a New "Mass Effect" Remaster?

Is BioWare Teasing a New "Mass Effect" Remaster?

Okay, BioWare. Time to 'fess up. Are you hiding something Mass Effect-related behind these recent tweets you've been posting? Because it certainly seems like you are. Earlier today, the official BioWare Twitter account posted a scene from the beginning of the original Mass Effect along with a caption tagged "#MassRelays." The tweet had no additional […]

How to Build a Better Role-Playing Game [Opinion]

How to Build a Better Role-Playing Game [Opinion]

Though Japanese RPGs have a firm template in place for how each release from that stable should be approached, Western RPGs have always been scattershot. Isometric visions of apocalyptic wastelands, sprawling high fantasy tales rife with warring factions, and even the gambles that mimic a JRPG, right down to the party's mannerisms and four-disc spread […]

Surprise! "Anthem" is Getting "Mass Effect" Costumes For N7 Day

Anthem is getting a fun new set of Mass Effect-inspired costumes, just in time for N7 Day. If you too were upset by the poor quality of Mass Effect Andromeda (as well as Anthem) to play either one, this may come as a depressing announcement. Fortunately, the costumes look very cool.

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 […]

Bioware has Plans For Mass Effect Going Forward

Bioware has given fans a glimmer of hope as the developer says it has plans for Mass Effect.   While I liked Mass Effect: Andromeda a fair bit, it's clear that its legacy isn't going to be one that is fondly remembered. The game launched in a troublesome state, it clearly being rushed out the […]

Dragon Age

BioWare Almost Confirms Existence of Dragon Age 4

Every time BioWare talks about Anthem and its lack of usual BioWare features, players start panicking about Dragon Age 4 and the next Mass Effect and what Anthem could mean for them. While Producer Mark Darrah spent a lot of time at PAX West last week talking about how Anthem isn't Mass Effet or Dragon Age, fans took to twitter to ask questions […]

Bioware head Casey Hudson has acknowledged that Bioware knows fans want more Dragon Age and Mass Effect games in the future, away from the world of Anthem.

Mass Effect's PC DLC problems seem to have been solved, even if you might end up spending a little more than you might like to get hold of every bit of content. The series has some truly excellent DLC. Playing the games without them certainly hurts the experience as you miss out on some killer stories. […]

Mass Effect: Andromeda

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 […]

Extras inspired Mass Effect

Mass Effect's Awkward Dialogue Scenes Were Inspired By Ricky Gervais's Extras

  While the future of the franchise is somewhat uncertain at the moment, with Mass Effect turning 10 years old, there is certainly time to look back on the fondest times with the crew(s). Nothing is more iconic or memorable in the series than the game's lovably awkward dialogue scenes, that work in the context […]

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. […]

The 'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Patch Fixes Some Stuff, But Is It Enough?

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.
