The next Mass Effect welcomes back a number of BioWare veterans onto the project, including the original art director, cinematic director, and narrative designer. The new Mass Effect trailer premiered during The Game Awards 2020, and while it doesn’t show its hand regarding the story or setting, it’s enough to revive long standing love for the series, video added below…

“We can’t wait to continue our adventure together – revisiting our favorite memories in the Mass Effect universe, and creating brand new ones!” said series director Casey Hudson in the announcement.

BioWare has got Derek Watts on board, who is the original art director for the series. 

Oh, and lets not forget Derek Watts. Original Art Director for Mass Effect. He’s back too. Ready to rock.

That sleekness of a Star Trek set combined with the starkness of the Alien movies, you’ve got Derek to thank for that, and their input into the fifth game will not go unnoticed.

Cue lots of moments where you go “ooo” and “aaa” when your ship cuts through the swirling darkness of storm clouds on an uninhabited (?) planet.

The next Mass Effect game (presumably Mass Effect 5) will benefit from Brenon Holmes’ “ingenuity” from his experience on the Mass Effect series, Dragon Age Origins and Inquisition, and even back to Baldur’s Gate 2.

Brenon is a veteran of 3 Mass Effect games. His ingenuity and work helps to bring amazing gameplay systems to the Mass Effect Universe.

It was their brains that brought “amazing gameplay systems to the Mass Effect Universe,” so we’ll definitely be looking forward to a lot in the next game.

And, last but not least, Dusty Everman is back after departing the studio five years ago.

Their vision of the Normandy ensured it would become an iconic ship in gaming, and in the sci-fi genre itself. All in all, it’s very exciting news for fans. affirmed that turbulent times are in the past. 

A report from Kotaku revealed that the poor performance of Mass Effect Andromeda and Anthem caused the first iteration of the game to be binned not long into its production. “We were working towards something very cool, a hugely reactive game, smaller in scope than Dragon Age: Inquisition but much larger in player choice, followers, reactivity, and depth,” said an anonymous employee. “I’m sad that game will never get made.”

‘Battlefield 6’ Will Feature A World War 3 Settings (Rumor)

Battlefield 6' Will Feature A World War 3 Settings

Battlefield 6 is set to release in 2021, and by all accounts it sounds like we’re in for the biggest and most ambitious Battlefield adventure. 

According to a new rumour, the BF6 will move away from the historical focus of the previous two games and take us squarely in the middle of a modern conflict once again. Specifically, it sounds like a World War 3 scenario is on the cards.

William_Fichtner posted on Reddit, claiming that Battlefield 6 will take place during a NATO vs. Russia conflict in World War 3 They also suggest that War Stories will return as part of the campaign, and will “track several soldiers from different countries as the war rages in every corner of the world.”

“One will feature a US Army squad fending off a Russian attack in the suburbs of America,” they explain. “Another war story will feature a MI6 agent embedded in a rebel group in Eastern Europe, with the objective of stopping a Russian advance into NATO territory.”

The post also touches on “massive” 64 VS 64 multiplayer, which is something we’ve previously heard. Modes are said to include TDM, Domination, Conquest, Breakthrough and Grand Operations, with Grand Operations now taking place over the course of five days. They also touch on three large-scale maps, which apparently include an American suburbs setting, a European city, and a Russian forest.

EA recently shared a few concrete details about Battlefield 6 during an investors call. We learned that the next entry in the popular FPS series is coming to next-gen consoles by holiday 2021, which means we’ve got about a year to wait. It also looks like DICE will be sharing more details – which, presumably will include a first-look – in the spring.

“Cyberpunk 2077” Characters Can’t Get Their P*nises to Stop Poking Through Their Pants

Cyberpunk 2077" Characters Can’t Get Their P*nises to Stop Poking Through Their Pants

Cyberpunk 2077 launched December 10th, and players are running into some surprising glitches. The game isn’t running very well at all on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A lot of the problems players are experiencing are frustrating — like frame rate issues and crashing.

Some folks are more amusing, like the one in which Cyberpunk 2077 players can’t get their characters to keep their massive hogs in their pants. You can customize the genitals for your character, V — you can choose to have a p*nis or a vag*na, with two different penis options and a size slider. For some players, the customizable genitalia are causing issues: Their p*nis just won’t stay in their pants.

Apparently, this is not only a problem for p*nises. Br*asts cannot be contained, either.

Clearly, this is a problem, unless there is something I don’t know and needs explanation. CD Projekt Red has not spoken publicly about the widespread launch problems. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is out now on Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. (It’s playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, too — but an enhanced version specifically for those consoles is scheduled to be released in 2021.)

‘GTA 6’ Fans Ask Rockstar to Take Its Time on Development After Seeing ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ On Console

'GTA 6' Fans Ask Rockstar to Take Its Time on Development After Seeing 'Cyberpunk 2077' On Console

CD Projekt RED first announced the game back in 2012, but it wasn’t really until 2018 that we started to see the game in action and get a taste for just what it could be. Gameplay trailers promised a sprawling, thriving city the likes of which we’d never seen before, with a huge emphasis on player choice and freedom.

After the long delay and hyping, console fans was disappointed how the game runs on console.

CDPR was faced with a fanbase that was expecting a perfect game, but would also get incredibly annoyed at any further delays. In the end, Cyberpunk 2077 released after its third delay… and there are inevitably people now complaining that it wasn’t ready.

To be clear, Cyberpunk 2077 is a monster on high-end PCs and the first wave of reviews (all of which played the game on PC), had a lot of praise for the RPG. However, the game is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles too, and this is where the majority of complaints have been levelled. Fans are running into countless bugs, pop-in, poor quality textures, and other such issues (while some fans is complaining that the game graphics looks like 2006 GTA Auto on PS4 & Xbox One) meanwhile, the game runs well on next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X but graphics ain’t that impressive

Grand Theft Auto fans, who have clearly been looking at Cyberpunk’s messy console release and have come to a conclusion: Rockstar should take as much time as it needs to develop/work on Grand Theft Auto VI to avoid experiencing such disappointment.

In a post entitled “After Playing Cyberpunk 2077, R* Should Take Its Sweet Time”, Reddit user ExoBoot describes CDPR’s console launch as a “mess”, and expresses hope that Rockstar doesn’t fall into the same issues. “I don’t care if GTA VI is coming out in 2024,” they wrote. “Just don’t be rushed and give us an amazing experience.”

Others in the thread were quick to agree. “Can all of you NOW finally stop bitching about R* being so quiet? They’re doing us a favor,” said one user. Another pointed out that maybe it’s better not to announce a game eight years before release – although of course we all know that GTA VI is coming, regardless of the fact it hasn’t been officially announced yet.

“Rockstar are the masters of not rushing though,” one commenter assured the rest of the thread. “RDR2 took what, 8 years of development? and it released in a pretty damn good state.

“I still maintain that no matter what patches upgrades CDPR do, RDR2 will always look better than Cyberpunk. I’ve played about 10 hours and boy it’s an amazing world and story but golly the graphics are abysmal, RDR2 had it all amazing story, amazing world and amazing graphics.”

Oxford University Study Shows Playing Video Games Can Improve Your Mental Health

Oxford University Study Shows Playing Video Games Can Improve Your Mental Health

A new study conducted at one of the UK’s foremost universities has concluded that the playing of video games could be beneficial to an individual’s mental health. 

The Oxford University study – headed by lead author Professor Andrew Przybylski – states that playing games can be good for your wellbeing and mental health. The study focused on games such as Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, and its findings are based on 3,274 participants. They add that the study reveals “much-needed evidence to policymakers on the link between play and mental health”.

Przbylski said, as previously reported by Sky News: “Play can be an activity that relates positively to people’s mental health – and regulating video games could withhold those benefits from players.”

The study discovered that the social side of games like New Horizons contributed positively to players’ wellbeing. Of course, the games used in this study are both pretty chilled experiences; but I know plenty of folk who blow off steam with shooters, or use sports games to socialise with pals they can’t see in real life, right now. With some 2.7 billion people regularly playing video games worldwide.

‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Runs at 60 FPS On ‘PS5 and Xbox Series X’ But Looks Awful

Cyberpunk 2077' Runs at 60 FPS On 'PS5 and Xbox Series X' PS5 Frame Rate Ain't Impressive

Cyberpunk 2077 came out today for all platforms. The game is now confirmed to run at an unlocked frame rate on next-gen consoles but suffers as a result. 

The game supports the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X in addition to the new generation consoles: PS5 and Xbox Series. There is a strange technical limitation placed on almost every platform. In the case of the PS4 and PS4 Pro, the game targets 30 FPS but fails to achieve this target especially when roaming around in the Night City.

Meanwhile, the Xbox One and Xbox One X, the performance is beyond terrible, especially on the original Xbox One. The game is seen running at a frame rate as low as 15 FPS and even on the powerful Xbox One X, it fails to hold a steady 30 FPS. CD Projekt Red has already confirmed that the day one patch which is out now is the real deal and there likely isn’t a further update, at least for this week.

This offers a toggle between a stable 30 FPS at a higher resolution on the Xbox Series X and an unlocked 60 FPS with a lower resolution that appears to run at dynamic 4K on both PS5 and Xbox Series X.

The performance of the game on the PS5 is inconsistent with the frame rate struggling to hold 60 FPS and there is no way to lock it at 30, unlike the Xbox Series X. As a result, the controller response is all over the place which is crucial for a game like Cyberpunk 2077.

There is no clear winner in this race here, but we have to give the edge to the Xbox Series X for offering a locked 30 FPS option compared to no choice for the PS5. It does lead to a slightly better controller response because the frame rate is steady in this mode.

But hey, It’s the game launch day, so there is a good chance that CD Projekt Red will work on the performance issues on all platforms in the coming weeks.

Over $300,000 Of NVIDIA RTX 3090 Graphics Cards Have Been Stolen From a Factory In China

Over $300,000 Of NVIDIA RTX 3090 Graphics Cards Have Been Stolen From a Factory In China

More than $300,000 Of NVIDIA RTX 3090 graphics cards have been stolen from a factory in China, first reported by Tom’s hardware

it’s reported that 40 cargo boxes of graphics cards were stolen from an MSI warehouse in the early hours of December 7. This isn’t only a financial blow to MSI and the sellers of the RTX 3090, but it’s also a consumer issue as the RTX 3090 is already incredibly hard to come by. $340,000-worth of those cards isn’t a small amount of stock to go missing.

According to the original report, because of the high amount of surveillance in the area, as well as the fact that MSI inspects trucks regularly, the company thinks it’s an inside job – someone who worked at the warehouse knew how to get the stock out without being noticed.

This situation is a little like the console scalping we’re seeing surrounding the PS5 and Xbox Series X at the moment.

MSI Chinese mainland factory was stolen, stolen 40 boxes RTX3090, the total value of 2200000RMB ……😓
MSI has been officially announced and informed to the police ,Reward of 100000 RMB for reporting effective information. pic.twitter.com/JWw8hOMioG

Although it is unclear how many cards were stolen, as we just have a value of how much the boxes were worth – it’s obvious that even selling a few of these cards at a marked up price is incredibly profitable.

MSI is asking for information on the burglary with a reward of over $15,000 to individuals that can help them find the culprits and the company is working with the police to find out who stole its merchandise.

Scalper Makes $40,000 in Less Than a Week From Selling PS5 Consoles

Scalper Makes $40,000 in Less Than a Week From Selling PS5 Consoles

Given that Sony was caught off guard by the sheer number of gamers wanting to get their hands on a PS5, it was inevitable that some were going to be left disappointed when it came to snagging a console at retail prices.

Till now, some PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X fans have not get their hands on the console’s, there are also those who have missed out because the demand for the next-gen consoles has been so high – which makes the existence of scalpers that little bit more annoying. Scalping is, as we’re sure you know, the process of buying stock of tech, clothes, or pretty much anything and then selling those items on for a higher price than RRP, making the seller a profit.

It has now emerged that one particularly greedy scalper in the United States managed to get his hands on a scarcely-believable 221 PS5 consoles. Charging nearly double their original price at $1,000 each, the individual involved is pocketing almost $500 each time he sells one.

In the last week alone, the scalper involved claims to have made nearly $40,000 by making sales at his inflated rate. Unsurprisingly, the man involved refuses to disclose his full name, insisting that he simply be known as “Mark F.”

Scalper Makes $40,000 in Less Than a Week From Selling PS5 Consoles

It is estimated that Mark has spent more than $99,500 in acquiring his PS5 stockpile, which he says he obtained via a combination of online purchases and bots.

Even when taking into account his significant outlay, if you multiply his profit per unit by the number of consoles in his possession, it quickly becomes apparent that he stands to make a tidy profit should he shift all of his hardware at its current price.

The highly sought-after nature of the PS5 at present means that you would not want to bet against him selling the whole lot before the festive season ends. 

A source from UK scalper CrepChiefNotify recently spoke about a surge in the use of bots to secure items such as the PS5 – a practice that has been prevalent in the shoe industry for years.

The source, identified as Tom, revealed that the group “knew where to go for stock before it was announced” and were “watching all the sites for when they drop stock” and “running bots for members to almost 100 percent guarantee at least one PS5.”

He continued: “Bot developers have seen the demand rise for next-gen consoles and have changed their focus from being sneaker-focused bots into multi-use bots for electronics too.”

The race to secure a PS5 was never going to be an easy one for gaming fans. However, the ever-increasing use of technology to try and rip off genuine consumers is a worrying trend.
