Mass Effect trilogy remasters won’t come in October, rumours say

Everything's delayed this year, even the games no one actually announced. The oft-rumoured remasters of the original Mass Effect trilogy have been delayed, according to a new rumour, though this isn't too surprising/disappointing given that we don't know for certain they're actually real. Rumours had said EA were revamping the first three Mass Effect games for release this October, or at least by March 2021,…

Mass Effect art book listing rekindles rumours of a remastered trilogy in March

Though EA's notE3 showcase has come and gone with nary a mention of a remastered Mass Effect trilogy, rumours persist. Now they're being stoked again by an Amazon listing apparently revealing an expanded version of the art book, The Art Of The Mass Effect Trilogy is coming in March 2021. Which makes some fans wonder: why expand the art book now? Hell, we all need…

The Mass Effect trilogy might be getting the remaster it deserves

Say those three words and I'm yours forever: Mass Effect remaster. The rumour mill has lit up today following a titbit of news from EA stating that a HD remake or remaster of one of their games is planned to release sometime this year. VentureBeat claim it's going to be a remaster of the Mass Effect trilogy. Or maybe a remake. The article uses both…

The 10 most unhealthy relationships in games

Happy love day, you disgusting piece of filth. Got you. That was an example of what today’s young people call “neggling”. This is when you are nice and nasty in such quick succession that the body becomes inexplicably aroused. Spasms of lust take over both neggler and negglee, resulting in a paroxysm of extramarital sex and, subsequently, the degeneration of humanity. This is just one…

EA have price hiked a bunch of their games on Steam

On Wednesday, EA raised the prices for a large portion of their game catalog on Steam. The increases seem to have affected most regional currencies outside the United States. Price changes are inconsistent, with some regions seeing small increases and others being slapped with 300% price hikes on certain games.

The 10 most annoying children in PC games

Children, life’s great copy-paste. Adorable, drooling idiots with no self-control and a habit of yelling embarrassing facts to the entire supermarket. In our everyday lives, human children are a snotty emblem of hope, vulnerability, and aspiration. In videogames, they are a cursed harbinger of escort missions, narrative roadblocks, “cutesy” voice acting, and precocious dialogue. They are annoying. But hold on, that’s the point. Many of…

The 11 worst years of our future, according to games

Here we stand in the dark neo-year of 2020. The spam bots have risen to prominence, the governments of the world are bickering over follower counts, and history class has been renamed "meme studies". Somewhere, in a dusty room in the RPS treehouse, a rogue human is compiling a list article for a crumbling PC games website. It is a warning to all those who…

Modders unite to polish up Mass Effect 3 for N7 Day today

It's November 7th, and according to Bioware that means it's N7 Day, where we salute the (colour-coded) hard choices made by Commander Shepard in defence of Earth. This year, an alliance of Mass Effect 3 modders have gotten together to release a slew of complimentary updates, polishing up old content, adding entirely new missions and expanding the player's impact on its galactic war. Below, an…

Mass Effect 2 & 3 overhauled with a huge fan-made texture pack

Face still feeling tired after the whole Mass Effect: Andromeda debacle? Well, the earlier, better games haven't stopped existing, y'know. Maybe revisiting them with a slightly more 2017 look will scratch your itch. For instance, with these mods that add over 3,000 replacement, higher-res, 4K-friendly textures to Mass Effect 2 & 3.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer Shows New Worlds

Mass Effect: Andromeda [official site] is boldly going where no Mass Effect has gone before, taking BioWare's sci-fi RPG series to a new galaxy, in the far future of the original trilogy's far future setting. Because of the N7 designation held by Mass Effect protagonists, November 7th is to Mass Effect what May 4th is to Star Wars, and today brought a new cinematic trailer…

Feature: Game artbooks just get better and better

The RPG Scrollbars: Artbooks Of Adventure

I'm a big fan of artbooks, which is quite lucky since not only are there plenty of them around right now, the quality of them has never been better. Forget the scrappy little affairs that used to be used to bolster out the Collector's Editions of games, much as concept art used to fill in for interesting secrets to unlock. Today's artbooks are typically huge,…

ME3-ish Combat But No Old Friends In Next Mass Effect

I have no flupping idea what to expect from Mass Effect Not-4, aka Andromeda [official site], given all signs point to it being a clean break from the Shepard saga. But the reveal that combat will be similar to Mass Effect 3's frantic shooty fare does start to make it a solid thing in my brain, rather than an entirely abstract concept with a few…

Jennifer Hale Interview: From Metal Gear To Mass Effect

Every Sunday, we reach deep into Rock, Paper, Shotgun's 141-year history to pull out one of the the best moments from the archive. This week, John's interview with voice actress Jennifer Hale. This post was originally published July 27, 2011.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 Reborn Mod Jumps Into Homeworld 2

At the end of Mass Effect 3, thousands of ships from all across known space come together to liberate Earth and smash the Reapers. Then a pretty cutscene plays, and we passively watch the ensuing cool space battle. But oh, what if you gathered and commanded the fleet, and they were following your strategy? What if the slog across the Milky Way were a bit…

Marvel’s Agents Of Shield Borrows From Mass Effect 3?!

Anyone who's watched Marvel's Agents Of SHIELD, and possesses more taste than a toilet roll, will have noticed that it's a massive stinking turkey of colossal proportions. Somehow making Agent Coulson an unlikeable character - an even more impressive feat since he's surrounded by utterly hateable characters - it's a miserable mess of dreary sub-sub-sub-CSI procedural tedium, and mortally embarrassed to be in the Marvel…

The Law Is No Shepard In Mass Effect 4

Just a snippet about something that was more or less a given, but I think it's worth stating and knowing for the record that the next Mass Effect will entirely and definitely steer clear of Commander Shephard. The controversial outcomes of Mass Effect 3 do leave some room for 'what happened next?' investigations, but the three-game plot had tied itself in so many knots by…

So Long, Shepard: Mass Effect 3’s ‘Citadel’ DLC

There's just something about goodbyes. Like, growing up, I had a pet parrot. She filled my youth with eardrum-skewering screams and will probably be able to take most of the credit for my first heart attack, which will come at age 29. Also, she's going to outlive me. But, if she doesn't, I'll be a complete wreck when she finally closes her infernal, saliva-less beak, er,…

Mass Regret: Last ME3 DLC To Be Not-Rubbish?

Bioware have so far seemed determined to end their first Mass Effect trilogy with a whimper rather than a space-Jesus bang, with the DLC to date having been distinctly underwhelming. Is it just using up old stuff to earn a few more pennies, is it a sign that the devs are fairly disheartened with the game after EndingGate, is it that all the good staff…

Take A T’Loak At Mass Effect 3 Omega

I'm not the sort of person who usually watches the deleted/extended scenes of movie special editions. I mean, I'm sure they're fascinating - and I'll definitely go for a swim in the deep end if I'm really, really into something - but odds are, I've already gotten the point. I've seen the credits roll on the vanilla version. I've taken the journey, and - unless it's…
