A Lot Less Conversation: ME 3’s MegaWorm

It's going to be Mass Effect trailers from here until March I reckon, at which point we can finally play the game and enjoy the conversation as well as the guns. This new'un resolutely focuses on the latter, or more specifically giant space beasts at war as tiny ManShep legs it around a collapsing cityscape in their wake. Spectacular stuff, but scripted from here to…

Filthy Bioware Teases Tease New Game

Bioware are releasing a whole new game after Mass Effect 3 is sent out into the big wide world. All we know, though, is that it's a new franchise, and this is the first screenshot of it, as bestowed upon the industry's number one chum GameInformer. We don't know a name, we don't know if the inclusion of buggies and deserts is a red herring…

Feature: Interviewing Mass Effect's "FemShep"

Commanding Shepard: Jennifer Hale Speaks

Jennifer Hale has appeared in a great many more games than you probably realise. The person behind the voice of the female Shepard in all three Mass Effect games is also responsible for Metal Gear's Naomi Hunter, SOCOM's HQ, and even the grunts and groans of Metroid Prime's Samus. And of course her spookily good British accent as KotOR's Bastilla. Amongst literally hundreds of others,…

Speed Dating: Pick A New FemShep

Oh dear, there appears to have been some kind of mistake here. Bioware, as part of their long-awaited marketing acknowledgement of the female version of Mass Effect hero Shepard, have offered fans the option to vote for which of six new versions of FemShep (I really dislike that portmanteau for reasons I can't entirely pinpoint, but it seems rather too late to resist it now)…

Mass Exodus: Bioware Senior Dev Joins LoL

We don't tend to do too much in the way of 'person x changes job' stories here, which is primarily because the knowledge that disgusting organic creatures are responsible for our beautiful, clean, matter-free digital worlds is a horrifying truth we can't accept, but also because... well, people do change jobs. This one stood out to me, however, due to both source and destination. The…

Make It Stop: BioWare NWN Forums Hacked

This is a depressing year to be on the internet. And a doubly-depressing one to be a newswriter on the internet. The latest (but, let's not bloody kid ourselves, not last) game company to suffer the peculiar ire/amusement of hackers is Bioware. Fortunately, only a very specific bit of Bioware, so don't panic too much: their 10-year-old Neverwinter Nights forum. It actually happened a little…

Mass Effect MMO Speculation Is Nebulous

Despite admitting that they've yet to figure out any kind of useful multiplayer for Mass Effect, Bioware's Casey Hudson has said that the idea of an MMO in the universe "makes sense". Speaking to world-bestriding super-magazine Game Informer, he said: “Part of what you’re trying to do is save the universe so you can live in it. That’s part of the promise, I think, for…

Mass Effect 3: Revenge Of The Spoilers

Spoilers! Get yer spoilers 'ere! Only three quid a dozen! Howzabout that then ma'am, a punnet full of Mass Effect 3 details, yours for just a paaaaarnd. Actually, I'm guessing these are not especially meaty ME3 spoilers, as rather than spoiling late-game plot stuff they document the status quo for Shepard and chums at the start of Bioware's next galactic opus - but if you…

Lord, It’s Not My Shepard: A Mass Effect Movie

I'm regularly taken aback by how quietly enormous Mass Effect is. While common conception is that EA's getting its mega-corp bottom kicked by Activision, it's got a breadth of franchises that it's CoD'n'WoW-dependent rival does not - and Bioware's sweeping space opera universe is one of the foremost of those. It's really doing the Star Wars thing, I guess, as there was perhaps a vast…

Free Mass Effect 2 For Dragon Age II Owners

Coo - want Mass Effect 2 for free? If you've bought Dragon Age II, then it's already yours for the taking. Indeed, even if you buy a copy of Dragon Age II now, before 30th April, you can get the superb space-RPG for zero dollarpounds as well. This is, BioWare say, how they're celebrating their having sold one million copies of DA2 in two weeks.

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 4/5

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything? Did you even read the words of esteemed colleagues Rossignol, Walker and Smith detailing the first three parts of this Olympian list of The Most Important PC Games Of All Time? I am quite sure that I, Deacon…

ME2 Alternate Appearance Pack #2 Incoming

I was all ready to put a positive spin on this, like "Thinking of replaying Mass Effect 2 with the latest bits of DLC? The second Alternate Appearance pack, with new outfits for Miranda, Grunt and Tali will be out on February 8th for 160 Bioware Points (abour £1.20)." But no, because I've noticed that Bioware are advertising this news with the slogan "Put the…

En Masse: More Mass Effect 2 DLC Coming

It's true! No details whatsoever just yet, but it's coming. Bioware has announced that the game's daily Cerberus Network news updates will stop on January 24th, the one year anniversary of the service, but will resume a week before the final DLC pack and two weeks before Mass Effect 3, which should land this 'Holiday Season'. See those quotation marks, Bioware? You must imagine them…

Abbreviation Blowout: ME2 & DA:O DLC

What would it be like if Dragon Age's Morrigan and Mass Effect's Liara T'Soni met? I fed that question into the RPS supercomputer and it spat out the above image. I don't think it was trying very hard. Anyway as of yesterday both ladies have received their very own DLC, with DA's Witch Hunt and ME2's Lair of the Shadow Broker both available for download…

Mass Effect 2 Statistics Are Properly Batshit

Okay, so wrap your head around this. IGN have done a short feature where they talk to Bioware Executive Producer Casey Hudson about the studio's stat harvesting in Mass Effect 2. For their part, Bioware have revealed some of those stats, and some of them are genuinely mad. More people chose the Soldier class for Shepherd than all the other classes combined. Players skipped an…

ME2: Lair Of The Shadow Broker Trailer

Catching up with the gaming news from my latest bout of travelling too much, I discover from VG247 that Bioware have released a trailer for the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC out on September 7th. It's basically continuing Asari Liara's adventures involving that most shadowy of brokers, the Shadow Broker. It also promises to allow you to continue a relationship with her, which probably…

The Mass-Effectification of Dragon Age 2

Why change a winning formula? That's what I was left wondering after discovering that, on the one hand, Dragon Age sold better than any Bioware game ever as of November, and on the other, that the formula is changing dramatically for Dragon Age 2. It's worth noting that the PC version isn't changing as much as the console versions of the game. We will apparently…

Ooh: Mass Effect 2 Demo, DLC Tomorrow

Mass Effect 2 is a game that some people thought was okay. If you haven't played it - and you might not have done, what with all that stuff you were doing - then it's a good time to play the demo. Demo? Yes. Here's what the digital mouth of EA/Bioware say about that "demo": "In the demo, players step into the role of Commander…
