This year has been a wonderful one for gaming. While I haven’t managed to play as many titles to completion as I would have liked, I was still chuffed with 2015’s offering. Having made the switch from my ailing PC to the Xbox One, I was able to pick up some of the current crop of triple-A titles. As such I have decided to run through some of the games I enjoyed this year, followed by my runners up and then finally my game of the year.
So many great games came out near the end of this year, leading to a substantial backlog, and that doesn’t even include the plethora of games that Xbox have welcomed back into my living room with its Backwards [...]
According to moderators at Reddit’s r/masseffect, an anonymous source with access to an early build of Mass Effect Andromeda – the forthcoming installment of Bioware’s famous space RPG series – contacted them and shared details of the early game’s gameplay features.
The moderators explained that the source wanted them to reveal the information for fear that it would be “dismissed as fake” if the source had posted it him or herself. The moderators then claimed they were not supplied with any materials from the game such as videos or photos, but insisted that their source “supplied proof” that they were indeed someone who had played an [...]
Today at E3 2015, announced the release of the newest game in the long running effect Mass Effect series. Titled Mass Effect Andromeda, the game was teased through a trailer that featured a mysterious figure in black armor traversing a variety of landscapes to the tune of Johnny Cash’s “Ghost Riders in the Sky.” The game was then revealed at the end of the trailer to have a holiday 2016 release date.

This week on Gaming On a Budget, we are having a Bioware week. Some of the greatest sci-fi roleplaying titles of all time are now incredibly cheap.
Now we know that we have done these first two before, but they’re now part of a collection on Steam and honestly, is just too good a deal to pass up.
Mass Effect is a game that is considered somewhat of a spiritual successor to the astounding Knights of The old Republic series. Created by the same development team, it bore a sci-fi storytelling style similar to “Kotor” but with a more action-oriented feel. It put you in the shoes of an elite soldier who stumbles onto the greatest secret within human [...]
We have some really brilliant offerings this week on Gaming on a Budget, two of which are from the same company—though they are wildly different games in terms of their spectrums and aspects explored.
Described as somewhat of a combination between Thief and Bioshock was the well-received Dishonored. Borrowing aspects from both, the game put you in the shoes of Corvo Attano—a palace guard charged with keeping the Empress of Dunwall safe. Failing in his charge, the Empress is killed and he is forced to flee. Plunged into a world of darkness and conspiracy, Corvo must clear his name and discover the actions of those who would conspire against the citizens of Dunwall. But [...]
UPDATE: Miss Gavankar has confirmed that her role will be part of the upcoming FarCry 4 game as the character Amita, who can be seen below.
Actress Janina Gavankar, via her Facebook page, hinted at her involvement as a motion capture actress in a new Ubisoft title that she teases will be an “AAA” games. This has led to much speculation on Miss Gavankar’s page as to which one of Ubisoft’s many high profile IP’s that she maybe involved with. The guesses range from Assassins’ Creed and FarCry 4 to The Crew as well. There’s also an outside chance that Gavankar may be involved in an entirely new IP, but the actress did confirm the [...]
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 [...]
I’m sure when you read that title, you had one of two reactions: “Yes, finally, gettin’ real up in here,” or “Here comes another crazy right-wing-left-hook.” Fortunately, neither of these reactions are necessary because this article isn’t about whether or not homosexuality is wrong, the legalization of gay marriage, or what I believe about homosexual lifestyles.
The question we’ll be talking about is simply, “What roll will homosexuality play in video games for the near future”?
Now, homosexuality in general has been featured in video games for some time from gay and lesbian NPC’s in Grand Theft Auto to [...]
