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…

Messiah Complex Prt 2: Towards Mass Effect 3

I left Mass Effect 2 in a similar mood to the way I left Dragon Age. I admired the craft, enjoyed it a lot but found myself dwelling on the question of “what next for Bioware?”. There's ribs of the old Bioware skeleton sticking out, but some of the changes in format feel – to me – like transitional ones, on the way to something…

Mass Effect 2 & 3 To Be Bridged By DLC

Bioware producer Casey Hudson, speaking to Videogamer, has revealed that the current line of DLC being produced for Mass Effect 2 will eventually bridge the gap between that game and its sequel. "So, for the time being there's going to be a continued stream of DLC for people. We'll start to have packs that'll tell the story between Mass Effect 2 and 3. But beyond…

Have U Got The New Look? ME2/DA Make-up

I came to Mass Effect 2 late, and after a couple of weeks of man-chat and man-shoot, finished it off last night. And so, I wandered off to Youtube to have a look for some of the choices I stepped away from and to relive my sexing of a mental lizard. At which point, I come across the make-up tutorials of UtopianDream (Who's affiliated with…

“Aggressive Maneuvering”: ME2 DLC Details

The Mass Effect 2 commercial extension modules are nearly here. Firstly there's some free DLC, in the form of the "Firewalker" pack which is out on the 23rd. This features five new vehicular missions, and a new vehicle: "The Hammerhead is a heavy assault vehicle that hovers over the battlefield at up to 120 kilometers per hour and features a guided missile system ensuring accuracy…

Bonus Wibble: Mass Effect 2

John's already thoroughly Wot-I-Thunked Bioware's rather splendid star-biffing RPG, which remains very much the RPS DEFIN-O-TAKE on the game, but I have these words about it lying around from something that's not ever going to be published. So I might as well quietly leave them on this table here and walk away whistling, really. It's also an indulgent excuse to do something with a meagre…

Mass Effect 2 review

First of all, to explain why this review is so late. We’d hoped for code well in advance, but sadly it wasn't sent to us until the release day. I have since played the game to absolute completion. Thus it is only proper to tell you Wot I Think. (You can safely assume this review contains enormous Mass Effect 1 spoilers, but I will not…

Happy-Fun-Time: Win Mass Effect 2 DDE

Everyone's playing it. I'm playing it. John Walker's playing it, even though he hasn't worked out how to heal. Your mum's playing it; she's romancing Garrus, and he's making her feel more alive than she's ever felt before. So - why aren't you playing Mass Effect 2? If the answer is 'I'm already busy playing Dragon Age: Return To Ostragar at bloody last, and it's…

Mass Effect 2 Savegame Scandal/Salvation

I tried to post this yesterday, but the blog's back end mysteriously ate all my words so I gave up in a huff. I believe it to be the machinations of Loki, the Norse trickster god, and villain of children's picturebook Thor #606, written by Karen Gillan and on sale now in all good Early Learning Centres. Anyway - like half the world I've been…

Mass Effect 2 Launch (Final?) Trailer

A Mass Effect 2 trailer you say? But those are more rare than the freckled unicorn! I'd heard rumour they were even extinct. But no, it is real, it is yours to watch below.Has any game received more trailers? Better question: has any game had so many good trailers? This latest, and perhaps even last, is absolutely stunning. 150 awesomes. The game comes out on…

The Year Ahead, Part One

Below is the first part of our intricate guide for PC gaming in 2010. There's a horde of muscular-looking titles on the horizon, many of them likely to stop you and demand your money, like ludological bandits. Meanwhile, others that we expected to land, such The Old Republic, have already fled to 2011. Read on as the clouds in our crystal ball roll back...

Subject Zero: Compare & Contrast

OK, we've posted rather a lot of Mass Effect 2's approximately 3178 different trailers to date and thus should restrain ourselves from hereon in, but I can't help but mention this one. Last year was fascinating/horrifying in terms of Bioware marketing - with Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2 both they alternated wildly between trying to appeal to the more traditional RPG fan and then…
