Yesterday Eurogamer reported that Bioware senior character artist Furio Tedeschi posted a picture of the new armour for Mass Effect: Andromeda‘s lead character the Pathfinder. The high-resolution image shows the male character model, including the iconic N7 logos and a very Mass Effect-esque silhouette. The post on Zbrush Central read “our Pathfinder character model at Bioware Montreal…. for Mass Effect Andromeda – Modeled By Herbert Lowis [another Bioware artist]” It is an absolute treat for Mass Effect fans, who have been starved for details until now.
Anyway, the images below are from his forum post. However, you can see more of the model, [...]
A group of programmers called Poem Studios is remaking the classic 2003 RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic using the Unreal 4 engine. In conjunction with enthusiasts of the game, the team hope to remake and remaster the game, while adding content such as new missions, planets and more.

So far they have not run into problems with EA and Disney, the respective parent companies of Lucas Arts and Bioware, so maybe they are right. Either way, the group are not accepting donations at this time, and stress that all you will need to [...]

It’s no secret that Bioware has its fans all over the world. Just mention Mass Effect or Dragon Age in a crowd and I’m sure that you’ll get a response from one or a few who’ve played them and are excited to talk about one, the other, or both. Well, this is amplified a hundred times over at most conventions. Video game fans are a passionate crowd. Sometimes that passion teeters to the dark side, but for the most part, I like to think most fans are respectful and affectionate towards games and characters they love and spend time with. Bioware’s games tend to leave you feeling a part of their world instead of simply watching another’s world as it plays out. Fans take these [...]
