A Small Change Just Made Building In The Sims 4 A Lot More Fun

The Sims 4 got an update yesterday that, among others things, added the two new careers to the game. But we already knew about that — the developers had promised they were coming back in November. Buried within EA’s announcement was something far more exciting for many Sims fans: the return of a beloved cheat code.


Dragon Age's New Update Took Away My Damn Scars

Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s second big patch went out today, largely focused on the RPG behemoth’s PC version. I took it for a spin and discovered a few tiny tweaks paired with a big change for the worse: my character’s scars are gone — her face pristine as fresh plastic — and I’m not alone in that.


The Best SimCity Is Now Free

Forget the busted remake. Forget the cash-hungry mobile games. The best SimCity Maxis ever made is still available, and as of now it’s a free download on EA’s Origin store.


Making The Sims 4 A Lot More Bloody

More often than not, The Sims 4 is a peaceful game. Players can kill their Sims if they wish, but Sims never kill each other. At least not intentionally. So what’s this guy doing — smiling serenely in his underwear, not acknowledging the blood all over his hands, like some whimsical Patrick Bateman?


Origin's 'Mega Sale' Is Actually Mega

You could pick up Mass Effect for $2.49, or Far Cry 3 for $7.48. EA’s Mega Sale on Origin is actually properly mega with a tremendous range of games and DLC on-sale. Plenty of games are discounted by up to 75%.


Dragon Age: Inquisition Benchmarked: Graphics And CPU Performance

As a long time fan of the series, our mobile editor Tim jumped at the opportunity to preview Dragon Age: Inquisition ahead of release last month. As with Kotaku‘s impression of the final release, Tim concluded that the fantasy RPG’s third iteration is a must-play.


'Major PSN Hack' May Be A Fake

Don’t freak out: Despite widespread reports you might have seen today, the alleged “major security breach” affecting the PlayStation Network and other services could very well be a fake.


Fine Art: Dragon Age's Concept Art Is Fantastic

A number of artists worked on Dragon Age: Inquisition, and I don’t mean to ignore their contributions to what is a very pretty game, but I have a thing for Matt Rhodes’ cartoonish style of concept art in particular.


When Dragon Age Goes Wrong, Everyone's Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker is no longer the moonwalking-est game on the block. Not by a longshot. Also, could Michael Jackson leap 240min the air against his own will? Didn’t think so. Thanks to the dark magic that is glitches, Dragon Age: Inquisition characters absolutely can.


EA Says India Won't Get Dragon Age: Inquisition Due To Obscenity Laws

You might remember that Dragon Age: Inquisition has some, um, interesting-sounding sexual content. That, according to EA, might not jive with India’s obscenity laws, so they have decided to forgo releasing an Indian version of the dungeon-and-dragon-packed RPG altogether.
