You Can Buy Ultima VII!

This is what games look like.

Good Old Games have been adding a bunch of EA games in the last few weeks. But today’s requires a post. They’ve got hold of the complete Ultima VII, widely considered to be the best in the Ultima series. (Argue!) So in there is all the extra bits and bobs, The Black Gate, Forge Of Virtue, Serpent Isle and The Silver Seed. For $6/£3.85. Which is nice.

Filling The Gulf: Battlefield 3 Heads To Oman

My brain hurts, okay.

All these bloody Karks, coming into our country marrying our jobs… I think they should all go Back To Karkand. I hate myself.

Look, let’s just move on. Just watch the latest BF3 video, showing the Gulf of Oman below.

Are You Likely To Choose Jedi Consular?

Do not underestimate the sneaky-sneaky. Right, who's going to get wound up about an Adam Sandler quote?

Given the choice between being a Jedi Knight (nahyt) n. a mounted soldier serving under a feudal superior in the Middle Ages, and a Jedi Consular (kon-suhl) n. an official appointed by the government of one country to look after its commercial interests and the welfare of its citizens in another country, it seems hard to imagine why anyone would choose boring Mr. Government for Star Wars: The Old Republic. But the video below attempts to show you why melee lightsabre combat might be something worth avoiding in favour of making people dangle in the air like twits. And the sneaky-sneaky.

New Pics For The Old Republic

I hate it when I get that nagging feeling that these are in fact older screenshots and there's been a mistake.

Well here’s a special thing – seven new Star Wars: The Old Republic screenshots that are a) mostly not rubbish, and b) not ruined by a giant and pointless BioWare logo! What better way to start the day? (Um, cuddles and pie, maybe?)

RPS Exclusive Lack Of A Battlefield 3 Review

Well, it serves them right.

As you’ll have noticed, RPS is yet to have brought you a review of Battlefield 3. This is because, unfortunately, EA seemed to forget to give us a copy in advance of release. So instead, below is a picture of a puppy on a unicorn.

New For Old: Old Republic Battle Footage

EA have been busy at Gamescom. Here they are showing what it looks like when a team of eight players go on a mission to stop a dangerous bloke escaping a prison, in Bioware’s upcoming space-friends MMO, The Old Republic. Here’s four minutes of unedited (but likely heavily rehearsed) in game footage:

Gamescom: Six New Mass Effect 3 Shots

I like this one best.

Gamescom has produced six new screenshots of Mass Effect 3. Want to see them? Do you? I bet you do! Well… go on then. Being from BioWare there’s a bloody stupid logo obscuring half the picture on all of them. BioWare? Grow up. No one’s going to pretend it’s from their game. (Until Limbo Of The Lost 2, I suppose). And extremely disappointingly, despite the announcement of the official FemShep, ManShep continues to appear.

Friendly: Battlefield 3 Reveals Co-Op Mode

Some not co-op.

The headline says it all, really. The single-player game of Battlefield 3, which hasn’t had much attention so far, will be playable with a chum. The demonstration was shown on PS3, meaning it looked nowhere near as good as the trailer that followed, with the two developers pretending to not know what they were doing (and to be playing). They totally rescued a hostage! They drove a tank together! They revived each other! But there you go – co-op. In Battlefield 3. Got it? Good. And new screenshots! Added below.

Warhammer Online: Wrath Of Heroes Trailer

More cartoonish?

Freshly announced at Gamescom from EA comes Warhammer Online: Wrath Of Heroes. It’s an attempt by Mythic to take their MMO tech and reinvent it as a three-way, 6 v 6 v 6 battle game. It will also be free-to-play. The graphics are changed, with a more cel-shaded theme, which you can see in the trailer below.

The Fade: Dragon Age II Gone From Steam

Caption: This is a man with a sword. I am on *fire* today.

Oh, I hope this isn’t a sign of a dark, headline-writing times to come. I don’t want to spend the rest of 2011 writing ‘Game X Gone From Steam’ every other day. The latest departure from the packed ranks of Steam is EA and Bioware’s Dragon Age II – and right on the eve of the launch of its new DLC Legacy.

Something which may be no coincidence.
