Chalk this one up as another step that Nintendo is taking in the right direction after previously linking purchases directly to specific hardware. A situation where if you bought a second or newer console, none of your purchases carried over. Confirmation of this change came from the recent setup and UI leak, which as it turns out was a stolen Nintendo Switch. One that was subsequently returned to Nintendo, with the people responsible currently being investigated.

Over the weekend BioWare released a new gameplay video for Mass Effect Andromeda, focusing on the combat and various skill that will be at Commander Shepard's Ryder's disposal. Although it's light on squad mechanics it does give us a good look at the very fast and fluid action that we can expect. Compared to the original game, the series has definitely come a long way, and the new skill system seems to be built around being able to change play-styles on the fly without being locked into any specific skill tree.

We can understand that there are still Windows XP purists out there, as it was one of Microsoft's best operating systems. But Vista? We can't think of a reason why anyone would still be using that thing. Anyway, with Microsoft dropping official support for these OS's a while ago, Blizzard is looking to implement a similar policy in the near future. Which means that the Windows XP days of World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm, are coming to an end.

Okay, so that might be an exaggeration, but based on this new look at the upcoming Dawn of War III the sheer amount of units we get to see on screen is impressive in its own right. Add in hero units, explosions galore, variable terrain, and some pretty great animation, and Dawn of War III looks to be a combination of everything that has come before it. And more importantly, a straight-up hardcore Warhammer 40,000 RTS game.

After quite a few years of being held in Sydney, this year's EB Expo is heading back to Queensland for a two-day event over October 7-8 in the Gold Coast. For those that might recall, EB Expo originally began as an event held in the Gold Coast in 2011 before moving to Sydney where it has been held for the last five years. As for the reasons behind the change we don't really know much outside of the fitting new tagline #BackInParadise.

We recently took Arkane Studios' reimagining of the Prey IP out for a space station spin and found, among some very awesome gameplay, that the game is definitely taking some great cues from some very, very great games, while also forging its own identity. And it's definitely something you want on your radar this year.

According to the leak, by NeoGAF user hiphoptherobot, they got sent their Nintendo Switch pre-order a few weeks early. And so naturally they un-boxed it, fired it up, and captured the footage of the initial setup stuff and the overall UI. Normally, the part about someone mistakenly getting their console weeks ahead of launch would be the news story here. But as Nintendo have shown us basically zilch on the UI and console navigation front, strangely, this is our first look.

With the full game out March 31 it was only a matter of time before we got word that an Open Beta was happening for Ghost Recon Wildlands. And for any big game release that features online stuff, these days the term Open Beta is sort of a 21st century version of those CD demos that used to come on the cover of magazines in the '90s. You know, to drum up hype for an impending release. Or it could simply mean Open Beta. As in opening up certain parts of the game to a huge audience in order to stress test its features.

And it's being optimized for use with an Xbox controller by Melbourne-based studio Tantalus Media -- who you might remember from the recent Twilight Princess HD Zelda re-release. This new version of Cities: Skylines though, will coincide with the Windows 10 version, which thanks to UWP, probably makes it fairly easy to get it running on Xbox One hardware. At this point you're most likely asking yourself, "A city sim on a console?" Well, Sim City did it a few times over the years, and if there's anything that Sim City did -- Cities: Skylines can do it too!

That's right, additional Acts 6 through 10 that will see players revisit familiar locations and new ones too to witness the results "of your past deeds". Which we assume translates to thousands of new monsters to replace the ones you've already killed. And new loot. With a planned release date sometime in June or July this year, this represents Path of Exile's largest expansion to date with a number of new items and changes.
