BioWare Co-Founders Quit Video Game Industry for Good

What's up, doc?

Affable executives Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka have announced their departure from BioWare – and the games industry in general.

EA Unceremoniously Announces Dragon Age III: Inquisition

Oh

It’s probably telling that Dragon Age III: Inquisition’s announcement flew straight over our heads. We spend all day, everyday scouting out the best PlayStation 3 news – but this announcement didn’t come with the fervour that typically accompanies a big sequel reveal. “More Dragon Age?” pondered drowsy voices around the Push Square...

A Ridiculous Amount of People Have Played FIFA 13's Demo

Back of the net

If you live in North America, you might be shielded from the popularity of football (or soccer as it’s more commonly known on your shores) – but make no mistake, it’s a religion in some parts of the world. That’s evidenced by the sheer amount of gamers that hurried to download FIFA 13’s demo, which released on PSN earlier...

Watch 8 Minutes of Brutal Medal of Honor: Warfighter Gameplay

Light 'em up

This eight minute Medal of Honor: Warfighter trailer is supposedly based on real-world events – but we’re struggling to believe that life in the military is quite so action-packed. The video shows a group of Tier 1 Operatives infiltrating an Abu Sayyaf stronghold – and leaving a breadcrumb trail of burnt out helicopters in their...

News: Insomniac Games Lights Up First Fuse Trailer

Insomniac Games Lights Up First Fuse Trailer

Hmm

We adore Insomniac Games, but we can’t seem to muster much enthusiasm about its latest project, Fuse. It’s not the game’s multiplatform status that’s getting us down – moreover it’s the title’s complete lack of identity. As this debut trailer demonstrates, the third-person shooter couldn’t possibly look any more soulless. We...

Medal of Honor: Warfighter DLC Promotes Controversial Movie

On the hunt

Medal of Honor: Warfighter may be struggling to secure headlines on its own terms – but its collaboration with controversial Sony Pictures flick Zero Dark Thirty was always going to be a sure fire hit.

Mass Effect 3: Leviathan Trailer Takes a Dip

Under the sea

BioWare sure knows how to put together a good Mass Effect 3 trailer. We didn’t have a whole lot of interest in the title’s upcoming Leviathan expansion pack, until we saw this short video which shows protagonist Commander Shepard taking a trip beneath the ocean.

DICE Quadruples Official Battlefield 3 Server Count

Big ears

DICE has listened to the complaints of Battlefield 3’s rabid fanbase – and deployed a bunch more official servers as a result.

Doing it properly

Criterion’s enthusiasm is infectious. “We’re going to make the best racing game on Vita this year,” an excitable Alex Ward told IGN last week. And judging from the reaction to Need for Speed: Most Wanted's first showing, it’s going to take some beating. Unlike the vast majority of other developers, the Guildford-based...

EA's Frank Gibeau Has Seen the PlayStation 4

Lucky chap

Privileged EA Labels president Frank Gibeau has set his eyes upon the PlayStation 4.
