Loads of EA's best games available for cheap.
Best ofWe decided to ask the entire PC Gamer team who among the vast pantheon of BioWare NPCs they hate, and who they love.
...these movies, books, comics, and art that share the series' cosmic setting as well as its personal moments.

Every week Andy celebrates a great map, level, or location from a classic PC game in On The Level. Warning: spoilers ahead for the entire Mass Effect series. The Normandy is the most advanced military starship in the galaxy, but it’s also home. The hum of the engines, the beeps and chirps of the computers, and the murmur of the crew are the sounds of solace in the Mass Effect series. It’s
How do you follow an act like the galaxy's most high-stakes game of three-card monte? Apparently by completely starting over. BioWare has long insisted that Mass Effect 3 marked the definitive end of Commander Shepard's story arc, regardless of whether you picked the green pill, the red pill, or the blue pill. The good news, of course, is that it's created a universe that leaves plenty of room
I'm starting to realise it would be easier to list the distributors not currently holding a Black Friday sale. Even so, we'll give Origin the spotlight for a second. After all, their sale does have some good discounts on a selection of EA games, and, let's be honest, people are hardly going to check Origin's store page unprompted. Now you've had that prompt, head over for up to 66% off certain
The ultimate ending to the Mass Effect trilogy was famously... divisive. Now, Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 lead writer Drew Karpyshyn has openly discussed his original plan for the trilogy's conclusion. He also uses the phrase "techno-science magic reasons", which I am 100% a fan of. Talking to VGS, Karpyshyn details the ending, which he admits wasn't "super fleshed out". The plot would have
Bioware have been discussing what's next for the Mass Effect series. Not in a "this is what's happening" kind of way. More, "wouldn't it be good if we did something like this, NOT THAT WE ARE." Speaking to OXM, the Mass Effect development team talked - in the vaguest, most theoretical terms - about the possibility of a spin-off starring one of the characters or locations made famous by the series.
Origin's latest beta update is primarily targeting "power gamers with muscular 64-bit systems". Which is an odd phrase, and not just because no regular person has said "power gamers" without being violently sick soon after. Muscular 64-bit systems? It's 2013: my calculator is basically running a 64-bit system. Although, in fairness, my calculator is just my regular desktop - so is in fact running
Greg Zeschuk, the co-founder of BioWare who left the games industry earlier this year along with long-time partner in crime, Ray Muzyka, has some interesting things to say about working with EA. In a recent interview with GamesIndustry International, the RPG magnate-turned-Internet beer celebrity downplayed the idea that EA was pulling the strings after the buyout—even going so far as to say that
We've already seen our first look at DICE's powerful Frostbite 3 engine in yesterday's Battlefield 4 reveal, and it looks like we'll soon see more of its considerable capabilities in other EA-branded franchise titans. A tweet sent out today by BioWare Edmonton and Montreal General Manager Aaryn Flynn reveals the next Mass Effect and Dragon Age 3: Inquisition harnesses the newest version of the
The last hurrah for Mass Effect's memorable cast and crew wrapped up earlier this month with Mass Effect 3's Citadel DLC, but the legacy of Commander Shepard lives on with the critical decisions, dialogue choices, and punched reporters everyone experienced in the trilogy. BioWare now has an infographic tallying up the cumumlative player stats for Mass Effect 3, and it shows a surprising rift in
In a panel at PAX East, Mass Effect executive producer Casey Hudson has given some details about the next entry in the series. Okay, so 'details' might be a little strong. 'Vague hints of the studio's development plans' is probably closer to the mark. Hudson did, however, also give a similarly cryptic teaser about the existence of a brand new fictional universe being developed by BioWare Edmonton.
