Battlefield 1 trailer analysis reveals more WWI historical accuracy than expected

Battlefield 1 trailer analysis reveals more WWI historical accuracy than expected

Battlefield 1 took the FPS world by surprise a little over a week ago, with its debut trailer revealing a World War I setting, albeit with a sort of alternate timeline take on things. While some gamers were surprised that developer DICE would take its flagship series so far back in time when all the other war games have moved on to modern and futuristic settings, the history buffs on YouTube channel The Great War went with the flow and instead made a detailed breakdown of the trailer's historical accuracy.

Mass Effect theme park attraction opens in California in May

Fans of the sci-fi RPG game series Mass Effect are still in for a wait until the next title sees release in 2017, but at least now they have the option of visiting a theme park attraction to get their fix.

The attraction was developed in cooperation with Mass Effect's publisher, EA.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst delayed until June

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst delayed until June

If you're looking forward to Mirror's Edge Catalyst, then you're probably pretty excited for this weekend. The closed beta will begin tomorrow, and will last for five days. Unfortunately, while some people may be playing the game as early as this weekend, everyone is going to have to wait a bit longer for the game's full launch.

Today the game's Design Director Erik Odeldahl announced that the game would be receiving another delay. This is the second time that the game has been delayed. The game was originally slated to be released in February, and was pushed back until May 24th. Thankfully this delay isn't quite as long.

The game is now set to be released to the public on June 7th here in the US. I'm not quite sure just how much work can be done in those extra two weeks, but EA feels that it will be necessary, in order to address player feedback from this weekend's upcoming closed beta.

No one is ever excited to hear that a game has been delayed, but I really don't mind. Sure, I'll have to wait a bit longer. However, I'm of the mind that a delayed game is far better than a buggy launch.

Must-Have PC Games of 2016

Must-Have PC Games of 2016

While I tend to keep up with the latest console releases, I'm a PC gamer at heart. I like having a good computer with a nice screen that's going to play games with the graphics turned up as high as I can get them. I also like how easy it is to find games on the cheap, thanks to Steam sales, Humble Bundle specials, and countless others.

Need for Speed for PC trailer teases March 15 release

As promised, Need for Speed is arriving this spring — March 15, to be precise — a launch that had been delayed in September 2015. Though having to wait longer is always disappointing, the postponement was for a good reason: the extra time was needed to give PC gamers unlocked frame rates, something fans had been heavily requesting. It’ll all be worth it in the end, then, and as that end draws near, EA has revealed the PC version in a new trailer.

PS4 has outsold the Xbox One nearly 2 to 1

PS4 has outsold the Xbox One nearly 2 to 1

In the great Console Wars, there are really only two names that matter. Nintendo has always been an outlier, as they target different audiences, and rarely support the same games as the other two. Unfortunately, in this round, Microsoft has declined to decline releasing official sales numbers for the Xbox One, so it makes it harder to judge how each side is faring, in comparison to the other.
