Sinclair Networks False Claims, Mass Effect: Andromeda DLC Is Possible

Last week a fake company, by the name of Sinclair Networks, made a false claim; that due to the games poor sales and reviews, Mass Effect: Andromeda has cancelled any plans for future single player DLC. The fictional company claimed to have worked with Bioware on the most recent Mass Effect: Andromeda patches. The initial news from Sinclair Networks spread across gaming media outlets like wildfire, terrifying Mass Effect fans with the idea that they would get no future expansion on the game.

Sinclair Networks was quickly shot down for their false claims. So maybe Mass Effect: Andromeda will come out with DLC. Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Producer, Fernando Melo, answered back on Twitter basically saying that even though they could not discuss any future plans at this point, that they had no affiliation with Sinclair Networks. Electronic Arts also had an interview with PC Gamer stating, “We’ve never worked with Sinclair Networks and they had nothing to do with the development of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Beyond that, we don’t have any news to share at this time regarding DLC.”

So now we are as clear on Mass Effect: Andromeda DLC as we are with who Sinclair Networks is. Since we didn’t receive any official news confirming or denying future Mass Effect: Andromeda single player DLC, it is hard to know what to expect from the future. All we do know is that the studio has currently been focusing most of their attention towards the highly anticipated Anthem, following its showcase at E3 this year. So while DLC plans have not been denied officially for Mass Effect: Andromeda, it does seem unlikely.

I have always let my imagination run wild. Now that I am an adult, not much has changed. Now I spend most of my free time doing so through video games, film, television, and comics.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
