Brothers Developer Snags a Ticket to Ride with EA

Freight fever

Drop a titan on it

Curious About Dragon Age: Inquisition's Co-Op Multiplayer? Watch It Streamed Right Here

Forged in the fires of friendship

It certainly hasn't received the same sort of backlash that Mass Effect 3 got when it was announced that Commander Shepard's final chapter would sport its own co-op component, but perhaps that's led to Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer offering flying a little under the radar. Indeed, much like the sci-fi...

Dragon Age: Inquisition's Producer Reckons Skyrim Changed the RPG Genre Completely

The sons of Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim may be several years old now, but it still holds enough sway to spark conversation around the 'net.

FIFA 15 (PlayStation 4)

Straight down the middle

Reviewing FIFA tends to get harder as the years pass, especially when there are no new gameplay innovations or drastic blueprint alterations to shout about. Last year's entry felt like a step up purely because of the graphical and technical improvements that came courtesy of new hardware, but FIFA 15 is obviously unable to...
