To become the best at Need for Speed: Most Wanted, you’ll need to take on Fairhaven’s most notorious racers.

Mass Effect 3 Prepares for Operation Overdrive

Geth ready

We quite liked Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer component, and it seems like we weren’t alone. Over six months since the game’s original release, BioWare is still supporting the title with new original Bounty Events. This weekend marks the start of Operation Overdrive, which will shoulder you with the responsibility of hitting a full...

The Original Mass Effect Is Coming to PlayStation 3

Weird

If you’re a PlayStation 3-only owner, your addiction to the Mass Effect franchise probably started with the second game. After all, the original title was published by Microsoft as an Xbox 360 exclusive way back in 2007 – but now it’s finally coming to the PlayStation 3. The Mass Effect Trilogy will launch at some point in the near...

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...

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. For the uninitiated, the aforementioned movie attempts to recreate the real-life search for Osama Bin Laden. In the game, it will be...

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. The content’s due out on 28th August. Let us know if you're going...
