Original X-Men director Bryan Singer has just tweeted “I’d like to officially welcome back James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult to X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Also thrilled to announce Sir Ian Mckellen and Sir Patrick Stewart.”

McAvoy, Fassbender, Mckellen and Stewart ... sounds like we are in for a treat!

New Mass Effect Game Announced

So, time for us to do more of that Breaking News stuff! Bioware Montreal has just published a new blog post, an in it reveals that a new game set within the Mass Effect universe is already under development.

So what do we know? Not a lot. It'll be using the Frostbite game engine (which fans of Battlefield should be happy about), though with some of the snazzy updates developed for Dragon Age 3. I have to be honest, I'm a little behind on my Dragon Age 3 knowledge, but I know they've been doing quite a lot of interesting stuff (my personal favourite is the idea of generic armours that look different on different characters, so that they retain some of the personality starting costumes had).

Other than that, it's all up for speculation! Thankfully the Extended Cut endings clarified that the mass relays were only damaged, so at least a post-Shepard world isn't going to be some depressing post-apocalyptic setting. Other than that, who knows?

Personally, after the military-centric events of the previous three games, I'd like to see some other aspects of the universe fleshed out; the underworld of the Terminus systems would be a good choice. What does everyone else think?

Female Turians!

Well, I'm sure I'm not the only one who wondered how we managed to get through an epic adventure the size of the Mass Effect trilogy without ever finding out what the hell a Turian woman looked like. Hell, all we know is that they possess the capacity for greater flexibility, possibly at the expense of reach.

Well, wonder no more!

I gotta be honest here. I probably would.

CVG has some screenshots from the upcoming Omega DLC, finally revealing female Turians; expect a net-wide increase in Rule 34.

Skyrim: Dragonborn

So, generally when I make a post I do a little intro bit, like this. Then i post the video, like this;

Then I give my thoughts. Unfortunately, all I can say following this video is "wibble".

Actually, I lied. The other thought is; we all knew that Bethesda had put access to Morrowind and Cyrodill in the game. So if we're getting Morrowind, maybe...
