    And rightly so

    We've noticed that it's become cool to hate Uncharted 4: A Thief's End in some circles, but that's not stopping it from scooping up awards like they're going out of fashion. Naughty Dog's sequel netted another gong this weekend, taking home the coveted Game of the Year accolade from the 2017 SXSW Gaming Awards. It beat out Dishonored...

    It's been an electric start to 2017 in many ways, but the industry's just quickly taking a breather before Mass Effect: Andromeda drops. It means that this week's UK sales charts aren't all that exciting, with Ghost Recon: Wildlands retaining its place at the top of the best sellers list. LEGO Worlds is already starting...

  • News Mass Effect: Andromeda's Animation Thing Has Gone Too Far Now

    Fans go on the offensive and force BioWare to respond

    The Internet has an unfortunate habit of taking a joke too far, and that's exactly what's happened with Mass Effect: Andromeda's goofy animations. The title's weird expressions – which have tired faster than a certain crew member's face – have been ridiculed for several days now, but the...

    Deep space, deeper trouble?

    This has really blown up, hasn't it? Arguably the biggest story of the week, Mass Effect: Andromeda has some rather terrible animations - we're talking worse than usual BioWare animations kind of terrible. Naturally, the gaming sphere is currently flooded with gifs, videos, and clips of the game's shoddy human faces and...

  • News Sony Is Finally Killing Off the PS3 in Japan

    It's been available for over a decade

    Ah, the PlayStation 3. The last-gen machine launched over a decade ago in Japan, and even after the PlayStation 4 hit the market, it was still shifting units. Over the last couple of years, however, things have slowed dramatically; once the PS4 hit its stride in the East, PS3 sales fell off a cliff. With that in...

    At least not anytime soon

    In case you haven't heard, Mass Effect: Andromeda has some rather dire animations. "Par for course as far as BioWare is concerned," you may say to yourself, but based on what we've seen, Andromeda is somehow worse than the developer's previous efforts. Some of it is just downright awful. Obviously, stuff like this isn't...
