BioWare Says ‘Mass Effect 3’ On PC Will Not Support Use Of Controllers

Mass Effect 3

I’m a console gamer, through and through. I’m aware of how much more powerful and smooth PC games are, but playing with one hand on a keyboard and one on a mouse is irredeemably annoying and uncomfortable for me personally. The one and only way you may one day see me trying out PC gaming is if I used a console controller, and with consoles likely inching ever closer and closer to being computers themselves, that’s not happening any time soon.

But for anyone who prefers PC gaming with a controller over the traditional keyboard and mouse set up, Mass Effect 3 might not be quite as exciting as it once was to those of you who were looking forward to playing it.

On the BioWare forums, it was revealed that the PC version of the game will NOT support controllers. They still might work in some cases, but they won’t be supported by the game.

RAGE Xbox 360

RAGE
Xbox 360 I PS3 I PC
DEVELOPER: id Software
PUBLISHER: Bethesda Softworks
RELEASE DATE: October 4, 2011

Another of the many exciting game titles being released in this fall season, RAGE hopes to stand out as one of the top shooters gamers can get their hands on. Developed by id Software, inventor of the first–person shooter with titles like Wolfenstein, DOOM, and Quake, and published by Bethesda Softworks, the company behind all–time greats The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3, as well as the upcoming Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you could say that the game has a whole lot to live up to.

RAGE starts off after an asteroid (a very real asteroid named Apophis, which in 2004 was thought to have a less than 3% chance of striking Earth in the year 2029) hit our planet on August 23, 2029. You awake from a cryogenic sleep 109 years later, one of the few who were selected for The Eden Project, a program that would put twelve people with special abilities or traits in each of hundreds of Arks that would one day awake and begin to rebuild society.

Today marks the release of the first episode of Dragon Age: Redemption, a new web series based on the popular BioWare video game series.

The series stars Felicia Day (The Guild) and Doug Jones (Hellboy) and is produced by Day’s own production company, Knight of Good.

Dead Island

Dead Island
Xbox 360 I PS3 I PC
DEVELOPER: Techland
PUBLISHER: Deep Silver
RELEASE DATE: September 06, 2011

Ever since the release of that incredible first cinematic trailer, fans of horror video games and the zombie sub–genre have been frothing at the mouth to get their hands on the latest title from developer Techland (Call of Juarez and its two sequels, Bound in Blood and The Cartel) and publisher Deep Silver, Dead Island.

The game takes place on the island of Banoi at a beautiful vacation resort. Unfortunately, the beauty is quickly diluted by pure hell when a plague breaks out, turning most of the tourists on the island into bloodthirsty zombies and leaving you to fight to survive and try and escape the many horrors you’ll encounter.

But does the game live up to all the hype created by that first trailer, or does it fall a little short?

Skyrim Collector's Edition Box

Early last month Bethesda Softworks announced their Collector’s Edition for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which, if you’ve been paying attention, is a game I’m more excited about than most get for their firstborn children.

The incredibly limited edition of the game comes with a making of DVD, an art book, and a large dragon statue. But what wasn’t known was just how insanely gigantic the box it comes in would be. As you can see from the image above, if you’ve pre–ordered the Skyrim Collector’s edition, you will need to make some room on your shelf.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Xbox 360 I PS3 I PC
DEVELOPER: Eidos Montreal
PUBLISHER: Square Enix
RELEASE DATE: August 23, 2011

The Deus Ex franchise has been a favorite of gamers everywhere since the first title arrived in the year 2000. Its sequel, Invisible War, wasn’t quite as well–received as the original, but an impact was surely made with the two games. So, as you might have imagined, when a third game in the series was announced fans were elated.

The new game, titled Deus Ex: Human Revolution, is the first since 2003 and is a prequel set in 2027, 25 years before the events of the original game occurred. It follows Adam Jensen, the head of security for Sarif Industries headquarters in Detroit. The company specializes in the booming human augmentation field, replacing lost or damaged human limbs and organs with powerful new robotic replacements.

Skyrim Banner

Ever since Todd Howard made millions of gamers squeal with joy at the announcement of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, we’ve waited patiently for that 11/11/11 release date to finally arrive.

Now it’s only a couple short months away, and the various trailers and demos that we’ve seen of the game have shown us that this could just be the biggest and best game ever made.

With a game of that size, many assumed that Skyrim might end up on multiple discs when it comes to the Xbox 360 version, much like we saw with Mass Effect 2 and L.A. Noire. But Bethesda has a little surprise for us, with art director Matt Carofano confirming that Skyrim will, in fact, be on one single Xbox 360 disc.

All those rumors you’ve heard about Activision thinking about charging players a monthly fee to play their hit Call of Duty game franchise online with others? It turns out they were true, even though it was crystal clear that it would be the worst idea ever and that no self-respecting gamer would pay to play something they’ve been doing freely since online multiplayer has become so popular, the company is going to try their luck anyway.

The new service will be called Call of Duty Elite, and it will launch this fall along with the much-anticipated third installment in their ultra-popular Modern Warfare series, Modern Warfare 3.
