The embargo on The Order: 1886 exclusively on PlayStation 4 has finally lifted and as one who attended Sony’s private showcase in Santa Monica on February 10th, I was one of the very first to see live gameplay and learn more about what Ready at Dawn has sought out to achieve with the game that up to now, we only had a CG trailer for, at least that’s what we thought.
Watch below as I provide exclusive information about The Order: 1886 as the stunning gameplay footage rolls. Ready at Dawn is truly onto something amazing and if executed properly, could be a huge hit on the PlayStation 4 later this year.

Gamers online and offline can have a less then favorable reputation. Over the years this has started to change. One big factor in the change is gamers reaching out and doing good things for the community. Gamers (Heart) Japan charity that helped with Tsunami relief, and Child’s Play gave millions of dollars to children’s hospitals every year. One of these charities is Extra-Life, and this year The Gamer Access is participating. Team TGA will be gaming 25 hours straight for the Seattle Children’s Hospital, and you can game with us. Below is a link to our Extra-Life page. Donate (any amount is awesome), and not only do you help sick kids, but those who donate are picked first to game with us during the marathon. Below are each staff members screen names for each online gaming service and the times they will be on. We will be recording some of it (the last hour, we are all playing DOTA 2). So come on, help sick kids, play some games, and hang out with TGA staff members.

While this statement is often used by the various PR agencies throughout the gaming industry, it is not common for Bethesda to offer such a comment unless the rumors are actually true causing concern for those interested in the sequel to the 2006 release. Read more for more details on Bethesda's official response to such rumors.

It’s been nearly three weeks since Mass Effect 3 was released, and the rage over its ending continues on, unabated. This time around though, a more logical argument has arisen, past all the reports to the FTC and the charities. A GoogleDoc has been created, collecting all the fallacies that the ending(s) seem to commit. It seems that most players had at least one problem with what happened, and at least four different issues were apparent in most ME3 arguments, but this document proves that there were a variety of issues to choose from. Read more to read the document. Be prepared to read!

As a member of the media who is heavily involved with both the tech and gaming industry, there is no better feeling than attending an event where I have the ability to interview and meet with the creative minds behind the experiences created. For those who do not already know, The Gamer Access will be attending PAX East 2012 next week and to say I am stoked, would be an understatement! Joining me in Boston next week will be both Ashton Holiday and Britney Parks, who are both editors of TheGamerAccess.com, and I could not be happier to work alongside two passionate gamers. With that said, I am pleased to announce that we have been sponsored by one of the largest technology companies playing an active role in both PC gaming and computing in general.
