Mass Effect 4 to be shown off at Comic Con?

Every year in San Diego, Comic Con descends on the city and promises to bring plenty of geeks to town. Lately, though, it has become more about series and movies than actual comic books, and sometimes even big video games. This time, it looks like Mass Effect 4 might get shown off, too.

Mass Effect Frozen parody will make your day

I know that I was late to the Mass Effect party, but since joining I've become a die hard fan like the rest of you. I was also late to actually see Frozen, only catching it on a plane way after everyone else. Now, they are combined and the result is as genius as it should be.

Mass Effect Coming To Next Gen Consoles

Mass Effect is one of those games that I know many people would label as must plays. The trilogy was extremely successful and highly recommended. Think the story is finished? Fear not, it seems like gamers are in store for more Mass Effect goodness.

Ten games that we want to see remastered

When the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 era started, publishers were quick to bundle older-gen games together, selling off a slightly HD collection of previously played titles that had been given a slap of 16:9 paint. With the new-gen, that’s not going to be a passing fad, although developers and studios are quick to call re-released games “Remastered Editions”.

What’s in a name? The most popular Mass Effect names

We get a lot of freedom in games these days. But we kind of take it for granted now, especially in the name game. Most games these days that offer open worlds want you to give your avatar a unique handle, something that Mass Effect encourages. And according to Bioware, these were the most popular names in their previous game in that series.

Mass Effect trilogy coming to PS4 and Xbox One

According to a Chilean gaming retailer, zmart, the much lauded Mass Effect trilogy is about to be released as a single title for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Star Wars to follow Arkham model

EA's Andrew Wilson has only been CEO for about six months now, but he still has a strong vision for the company. He wants to focus on making great games, regardless of platform. That said, he has a specific vision for new Star Wars games, and I like what he has to say.

The spoiled RPG gamer?

There are a bunch of fantastic RPGs coming this year. We've got Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Witcher 3, the Elder Scrolls Online. I'm not going to include Final Fantasy XIII: Lighting Returns on that list, but it might even be a pretty good one, or at least half-way decent. But RPGs have changed so much over the years - have we become spoiled by the modern ones?

The Lazygamer Top 100 games of this generation – 11-20

Finally, we made it to the top 20 - and these are some fantastic games. I don't think anyone can argue with us about them, although you all probably will anyway. But we don't mind - they still made us happy during this gaming generation. As usual, the disclaimer is in place; this list isn't based on scores, sales or metrics, just on our discussions, bickering and threats against each others' loved ones.

The sexy concept art of Mass Effect, Dragon Age

Before a game can go from idea to fully realised, it needs some concept art along the way that’ll help sell the idea. It’s one of the most under-appreciated parts of game design today, and looking at the concepts that Matt Rhodes gave to Bioware for their Mass Effect and Dragon Age games, it should be criminal to undervalue these skills. See for yourself after the jump.

Bioware talks possible Mass Effect spinoffs

Shepherd's Mass Effect story is over, but that doesn’t mean that the universe isn’t ripe for picking, and there’s a multitude of stories within the Universe that could make for their own spinoff games.

Mass Effect 3 celebrates a year of multiplayer

TAAAAAAALI! Ahem. Can you believe that it’s been a year since Mass Effect 3 launched? Since then, the game has done pretty darn well, minus the colour-coded ending controversy that is. That’s a year of multiplayer operations and teamwork, summed up in one number-heavy infographic.

Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC gives the crew some shore leave

It’s been a year since Mass Effect 3 launched, and despite a rocky ending controversy, it’s been a damn good ride. A constant stream of DLC, multiplayer events and cupcakes have kept the Normandy crew in deep space for a while now, but even they need shore leave. But not the kind that consists of dodgy ladies waiting at the pier and Space-TDs. Citadel does just that, as the final DLC is packed with content to give the Normandy crew a grand finale. Here’s the trailer for that upcoming slice of gameplay.

These amazing Mass Effect characters aren’t official

We all know that a fourth Mass Effect game is on the way, although it’s not going to be Mass Effect 4. Our money is on it being a prequel. Because rule of three, gaming industry. With a new game comes new characters, worlds and vehicles. What will they look like? Who knows, but if Bioware wants to design the future with some real talent, they’re going to need to take a gander at the portfolio of these amazing artists.

Where the next Mass Effect fits

There’s an air of the unknown about the next game set in the Mass Effect universe. What we do know is that it won;t feature Commander Shepard, and that it’ll run on the Frostbite 2.0 engine instead of the Unreal engine that’s powered the previous games. And now Bioware’s filled in a few more blanks.
