It's been five years since our adventures with Commander Shephard. For most, it was a disappointing affair; having spending countless amount of hours only to have been delivered an abysmal conclusion to the series. We now have BioWare's next instalment: Mass Effect: Andromeda, set some 600 years later, so how does it fare up to its predecessor? Set in the year 2185, man (and Turian, Asarian, Salarian and Krogan) is boldly going where no man (or Turian, Asarian, Salarian or Krogan) has ever gone before - into a whole new galaxy, thanks to ancient technology discovered on Mars. We see ... Read More »
Mass Effect: Andromeda has had a bit of a rocky ride since its launch. There has been much talk about the flat voice acting and poor facial animations. This has affected sales of the game to the point that some people who claim to be big fans of the franchise are skipping on the experience.

Bioware are no different and have announced that there will be ... Read More »

The games Lead Designer 'Ian Soon Frazier' informed us that EA Access members are already playing with the day one patch in place - Hey folks, the live support team ... Read More »

Mass Effect: Andromeda is released next week, (23rd March) and due to some players being able to preload the game we know how big it is, and it's pretty big!
