The Road Ahead for Mass Effect: Andromeda

Mass Effect: Andromeda has a troubled road ahead. Five years removed from the release of Mass Effect 3, and the sour taste of 3’s ending, Andromeda launches to little fanfare, and the internet begins dissecting the facial animations, long loading, ship travel times, and more. In response to this, Bioware have pushed the first major patch…

In the first video in a new documentary series detailing the gameplay of the latest Mass Effect game, Bioware takes us through the combat of Andromeda, and how it’s changed from previous entries.

Mass Effect Launches Andromeda in March

As confirmed by BioWare General Manager, Aaryn Flynn, Mass Effect: Andromeda will reach our grubby little mitts on March 21st for North America, and the 23rd for Europe, because fuck us right? Why do companies still do that anyway? It's an asinine, utterly barse-ackwards business practice that just rubs people up the wrong way. So…

Mass Effect Andromeda Initiative Is…a New Trailer

The mysterious Andromeda Initiative has been revealed to be...a trailer, and not a particularly good one at that. Adopting a recurrent sound akin to the Inception “BWONG" interspersed between snippets of bombastic actiony sequences. Mass Effect: Andromeda seems to be promising us...more Mass Effect. Don't get me wrong, it looks very pretty, and certainly feels…

E3: EA Conference 2016

So it’s E3, in case you didn’t know. And EA kicked off the event in a, frankly, barely lukewarm manner. In the sixty minute run time, there were certainly a lot of words, but very little actually said. It wasn’t what one would call a terrible presentation, but it was most decidedly underwhelming. Falling short…
