Courtenay Taylor is one versatile actress. She's lent her voice acting talents to Halo 5, Fallout 4, Mad Max, Resident Evil, and, of course, Jack from Mass Effect 3—but voice acting wasn't her original plan. In this interview with The Mary Sue contributor Ashley Barry, Taylor explains how harsh criticism of her voice during a theater audition eventually lead to her discovering voice acting, a career she hadn't even known existed beforehand.Read More
Mass Effect Andromeda Delayed 'Til 2017

CinemaSins has finally taken on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with a pretty lengthy video outlining the movie's "sins." I don't agree with most of these points, but maybe some of you do?Read More
Say what you want about EA Games; we're just going to go ahead and mark this one down in the win column. A Donald Trump campaign ad made by a fan (yes, he has those) featured some assets from Mass Effect, and EA is shutting that nonsense down.Read More
Potential footage from the new game popped up online last night, and while it's apparently from 2014, meaning that it may not even be an accurate representation of what we can look forward to as far as gameplay is concerned--one has to wonder, judging by the numerous takedown notices on YouTube by Electronic Arts, if it may not be so far off the mark after all.Read More

Our brains can't repel size of that magnitude!
Leave it to the Halo series to produce the most outlandishly large spaceships in this intergalactic pissing contest. Of course, none of these compare to the magnitude of the would-be Dyson sphere, so there's a bit of (probable) fiction that trumps them all.Read More

Stylish video game clothes? Is this a dream where am I

Excuse me for a second. I'm wiping a tear from one of my eyes. Between the swelling, moving background music to the perfectly hopeful, inspiring narration, I forgot that this was a trailer for a gosh darn movie.Read More
Or least-favorite, depending on your threshold for bad parenting.
I got the gaming bug from my dad, who used to sit three-year-old me on his lap while he played Myst and Doom - which, in hindsight, may not have been the best plan, but hey. So what better way to celebrate Father's Day than with a collection of cards (lovingly made by myself and my fellow Weekend Editor, Becky Chambers) dedicated to our fave, most-devoted in-game dads?Read More
