EA Access: A Perfect Move

215d ago ... This. Is. Brilliant. Completely and utterly B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T. So in a move similar to Games For Gold for Xbox systems or PS Plus for Playstation platforms, or more accurately Playstaion Now, Electronic Arts have announced EA Access: a service which will not only allow paid subscribers to play a number of older EA licensed games, but promises to give early access to upcoming triple-A product...

Could We Be Always, Sometimes, Monsters?

238d ago ... [b]By Fogknight[/b] How can you know when you are actually making  a morally correct choice or not? How can you know if the choices you made were the right or wrong ones? Will every bad decision bring a consequence or not? Those are some of the questions we ask ourselves during our lifetime before we make some serious decisions.

 Many games have used the element of morality to engage pla...

Former glory

385d ago ... I'll make this short, mostly because I don't speak english actually. Need For Speed and Dragon Age, two completely different games. These two were the first to come to mind, but I'm sure there are a lot of games, juste like these two. They are great titles. At least they were... once. I feel that a lot of games have lost their touch somewhat. Sometimes they try to restore it, but it rarely w...

So, That Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC…

849d ago ... First and foremost plot and story details about the afore mentioned game, the series in general, are going to be mentioned so if you’ve yet to but plan on playing it and don’t want things ruined for yourself please stop reading now. Likewise the following will generally be about critical – read negative – observations of the ending for the Leviathan download content so if you happen to be a rea...

Explaining Mass Effect: A Theatrical Role Playing Experience

1078d ago ... Fairly recently I came across a Youtube user by the name of Smudboy who does through story and plot analysis on games. Currently he’s on a playthrough of Deus Ex Human Revolution, has covered Dragon Age 2, but its his work on Mass Effect 2 which first got my attention. Multiple multi-part examinations that looks at specific characters, problems with the presented science and even conflicting ma...

ME3 Multiplayer Brings up a New Issue

1238d ago ... So, we've all heard by now, right? Mass Effect 3 will have multiplayer! (it's okay, I'll wait for you to all calm down) I think most of us knew this was coming. From the not so coy "oh, we're not commenting at this time on multiplayer" at E3 to the decision to push it back more than a few months from its original release date. Now that it's here, all we have to do is just see where it go...

Dragon Age II : Updated Impressions

1436d ago ... After spending some quality time on it ( 18 hours ) I would like to share my updated impressions about the game. I would like to start by indicating the pure fact that Dragon Age Origins is better than Dragon Age II. Better in story telling, better in animations ( some might argue combat is faster and etc and it looks better, i disagree - my personal idea - ), better in voice acting and bett...

DRAGON AGE II PS3 Demo: Commentary & Playthrough

1467d ago ... This is my take on Dragon Age II. It looks to have an epic story but the gameplay feels very generic to me so far. In anycase have a look at the video and let me know how you guys also feel about this game.

EA = Best Publisher of 2011?

1469d ago ... Electronic Arts, in 2011, are amongst the best of the best. We can draw conclusions upon who will win GOTY but no other publisher has as many AAA games coming out this year except for Sony. I won't be focusing on Sony in this blog however. Firstly, look at the list of EA only games: Mass Effect 2 Bulletstorm Dead Space 2 Crysis 2 Darkspore Battlefield 3 Need For Speed Shift 2 EA Sp...

N4G at PAX - Day 2

1640d ago ... Media got some early access time this morning, which allowed me to get into the first round of Dragon Age 2 players. Playing as a female rogue, most of the changes to the game seem subtle. The combat was a bit more acrobatic, but everything felt very familiar, in a comfy way. After that was inFAMOUS, so there will be at least a handful of inFAMOUS shirts for you all. I did, of course, check...

Want Multi-Platform Equalness?

1651d ago ... With this generation of consoles, we make a bigger deal and fuss of the power between 2 consoles. However, from the target of game developers for multi-platform games, we never get to really see the seperate power between the 2 consoles. What I am saying is Would you rather have a developer try to make a multi-platform game equal on all platforms, or have each game different taking advant...

Innovation... Or Not

1726d ago ... Something's been bothering me for the past few years: innovation. Specifically, the word "innovation" and how carelessly it's been tossed around by gaming "journalists." (Yes, the quotations marks are there to indicate a lack of authenticity and/or legitimacy. More often than not, "innovative" seems to be a nonsense word--a cluster of letters with no real meaning, only a vaguely positive con...
