Collect ‘Em All: Mass Effect 3’s ‘Retaliation’ DLC

Oh those crazy Collectors. What won't they take? Entire colonies, the last pudding cup in the cafeteria,┬álives, your favorite parking spot, that coat you'd been waiting to nab on sale, etc, etc, etc. They'll just never stop. Well, unless you force them to. That's the idea behind Mass Effect 3's upcoming and still rather miraculously free "Retaliation" multiplayer DLC. The Collectors have invaded, and it's…

BioWare Teases ‘All-New’ Mystery Project, Next Mass Effect

After hearing the news that both members of BioWare's doctoral duo are headed for greener (or beerer) pastures, you might have worried that the studio would lose its flair for role-playing epics and start churning out farming sims, 1990s FMV adventures, or tasteful ballroom gowns. In a shocking twist, however, it's instead going to make more Dragon Age and Mass Effect. On top of that,…

DL Sea: Mass Effect’s ‘Leviathan’ Mission Dives Deep

Really, if you think about it, the ocean is basically space, but more blue. I mean, both are sorely lacking in breathable air, give us the ability to defy basic physics while shouting "wheeeeee," and are absolutely, positively, I-really-really-hope teeming with life. (What if fish aren't real?! Wouldn't that be a total bummer?) Also, Mass Effect 3's now claiming that both have Reapers, and I…

Updates Overwhelming: ME3’s Earth, Aquaman In DCUO

We live in a terrifying world of constant change. You might, for instance, neatly tuck each of your games into bed a night and gingerly kiss them on the cheek, safe in the knowledge that - when you awake - they'll be there waiting, same as always. But honestly, who knows? They could just suddenly update and transform into strange, multi-tendriled monstrosities. You could awake…

Mass Effect: Paragon Lost Offers Details, Gets Vega

Hurrah! It's the first proper trailer for the upcoming anime prequel Mass Effect: Paragon Lost in all its glory. And by glory, I mean of course... oh good lord, you have to be kidding. It may have Production IG involved, but we're not exactly talking Ghost In The Shell here. The fun series, I mean. Not the boring, over-rated movie and its even more tedious…

Earthbound: Mass Effect 3’s Next DLC Headed Home

After a long, bone-density-ruining day in space doing space things, it's only natural that you'd want to come back to Earth, kick back, and put your feet up on something familiar - say, a footrest, Big Ben, or the city of Vancouver. But, in Mass Effect 3's Earth DLC, you'll return home to find the place ransacked, with Reaper forces making a mess of everything…

Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut review

You know what - let me apologise and make something clear. The phrasing wasn't ideal, but my intent was only to call those who stamped around demanding the ending be changed for them, and behaving in really extremely unpleasant ways, farts. Not those who didn't like the ending, and those who expressed their disappointment with the ending. Not liking things is clearly not worthy of…

BioWare Calibrates Mass Effect Extended Cut For June 26

You may not have heard, but the Mass Effect trilogy tried to end earlier this year. It was all like, "OK folks, that's our show!" And then everyone held hands and bowed at the same time. As the curtains closed, I even briefly caught a glimpse of Shepard and Harbinger hugging. They had quite a run together, those two. Fans, though, weren't so keen on…

Space Punk’s Not Dead: Mass Effect 3’s Rebellion DLC

Sadly, this is not the intergalactic sequel to Brendan's now-deceased column series. Much as we wanted to mix things up with a sassy Elcor sidekick, contractual issues left the whole thing stalled out on the launch pad. So instead, you'll just have to settle for some particularly rebellious Mass Effect 3 multiplayer DLC. Specifically, the Vorcha are making their no-good, law-breaking debut by, er, joining…

The Other End Is Nigh – Mass Effect 3 Actors Return

This may well be an example of the dread medium known as UnNews, but I post it purely because it at least allays fears that the forthcoming extended cut of Mass Effect 3, which fleshes out the game's notoriously damp-squibby ending, will simply be a montage of still images with captions like 'Garrus Vakarion retired to found the first inter-planetary branch of Gregg's Pasties' and…

Hey You, Play Games With RPS Readers!

Yes, they're all at it. There's a whole bunch of them playing Tribes Ascend, and they even have their own server. The same is true of the Arma corps, who get up to regular shenanigans, which now even includes shooting zombies. Then there's the surprisingly popular Mass Effect 3 shootery, which is taking place over here. If you prefer things a little more persistent then…

All Together Now: EA’s “Online Universes”

Eurogamer bring the news that Keith Ramsdale, EA's Northern European boss, has declared that the company wants all of its brands to become "online universes". That doesn't mean everything will be massively multiplayer, but rather that each player will never have an excuse to stop playing EA games. Play Battlefield, for example, on a console in the evening, a PC in the midnight hours, a…

Mass Effect 3 Resurgence DLC to Add Multiple Player Maps

Yes, that's right: multiple players. Not singular players or angular players - which are, of course, works of incredibly esoteric modern art. Mass Effect 3's Resurgence DLC is arriving on April 10, and - somewhat amazingly - it's totally free. For the price of nary a nickle, dime, or duplicitous Citadel store endorsement, you'll nab two new maps, six new characters, and three new weapons.…

To The End? Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut Set for Summer

Hey, remember those "content initiatives" aimed at providing "clarity" for Mass Effect 3's ending? Well it looks like they will part of a spread of DLC arriving in a few months time. I was hoping they'd swap out the ending for a Bollywood dance number and something involving puppets, but oh well. I suppose DLC that's "more personalized for each player" will do in a…

EA Responds To Hate Campaign From Homophobes

In response to a vile show of hatred, EA - the Worst Company In America - has made clear they are taking no notice of their recently being inundated with complaints about the portrayal of gay and bisexual characters in their games. GI.biz reports that the publisher has confirmed they've been on the receiving end of "several thousand" emails and letters protesting the inclusion of…

Mass Effect 3 Ending Hinted At By Mass Effect 1 After All?

Here's a thing that looked fake but isn't. The notorious Mass Effect 3 ending - could it have really been hinted at in Mass Effect 1? A post on Reddit showed a planet description that seemed to describe, well, that's a spoiler I'll put below. But apart from the picture that had been rather hastily added, that planet is really there. I've flown there myself.…

Frozen Synapse’s Changed Ending: A Mass Indie Effect?

All the important games are changing their endings these days, you know. If you want a high profile, that's the way to go - and as Mass Effect 3 teaches us, preferably after initially concluding your narrative with a last-minute bodgejob riddled with continuity errors, then subsequently bowing to fan ouctry. Frozen Synapse developers Mode 7 Games did no such thing, but have sensibly realised…

Mass Effect 3 Ending Saga Nearing An End?

I'm not entirely sure how to take this statement from BioWare's Dr Ray Muzyka regarding the astonishing drama surrounding the conclusion to the Mass Effect trilogy. It's not saying outright they'll change the ending of the game, but there's this: Building on their research, Exec Producer Casey Hudson and the team are hard at work on a number of game content initiatives that will help…

What’s Right With Mass Effect 3’s Ending

The obsession with endings is a peculiar one. Perhaps it's a result of having been indoctrinated by a lifetime of movies with "surprise twists", or stories so poorly written that they rely on their final hook. But however we've come to this place, it's one that fails to recognise the real pleasure of being told a story. Mass Effect 3 tells a story, and I'm…

Bio Beware: The Latest On Mass Effect 3’s Ending Drama

Initially I had a load of things I wanted to say and analyse about Mass Effect 3's ending, but then a week passed and I realised I'd stopped personally being bothered by what that notorious final cutscene did or didn't answer. I'd had an adventure, and now it was time for another one. Mass Effect games have always been peculiarly adept at entirely dominating my…
