Latest Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer Highlights Pre-Order Bonuses And Multiplayer

EA has put out a new trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda today that provides a brief overview of the various bonus items players will receive for pre-ordering the highly-anticipated sci-fi RPG. Although we’ve already heard plenty about the Deep Space Explorer armor set and exclusive skin for the Nomad vehicle, this is the first time EA has actually shown them in-game. Neither piece of content is exactly encouraging me to rush out and secure my pre-order, but free stuff is always appreciated, especially if it means my own personal Ryder will look cool while bounding about the galaxy.

The Nomad, too, gets a lavish bonus skin, replacing the usual colors with a blinding gold finish that, we hope, doesn’t get exposed to extreme heat, for obvious reasons. Perhaps more interesting is the brief multiplayer footage showed off in the trailer in order to promote the Booster Pack included

It's been a while since we last had a look at a film from the central Asian nation of Kazakhstan in these pages but with Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov hailing from that nation and actively looking to spur and support local production - particularly of action oriented cinema - it seems only a matter of time before we see a whole lot more. Case in point, Kairzhan Orynbekov's Heist He Wrote.Orynbekov's directorial debut after picking up support credits on Daft Punk's Electroma and 2005 action epic Nomad: The Warrior, Heist He Wrote revolves around a group of would-be screenwriters who capture a little more attention than intended when a script they wrote for a competition catches the eye of a local mobster who forces them...

10 Greatest Games Consoles You Never Played

Sega

Of all tech industries, video game hardware is one of the most difficult to break into. In general, video game investment is highly risky, with the majority of retail released games ending up as commercial failures. Considering the amount of capital required to launch a console, it is a difficult task to even break even on the hardware.

Video game history has seen a huge number of commercial failures, with some disasters big enough to crash the entire industry. Most notoriously, the flop that was the Atari 2600′s E.T. directly led to the video game crash of 1983. The tumultuous nature of the video game industry has meant that seemingly indestructible market leaders have been ground to dust, while several unexpected newcomers have risen to the top.

This list takes a look at the 10 greatest consoles that you’ve never played, and in some cases never even heard of.

In the former camp, The Luna Cinema (Thu to 29 Sep) begins a three-month roam across central London and scenic spots in the south-east this week, starting at St Albans' Highfield Park this Thursday with Dirty Dancing, followed by Top Gun at Canterbury's St Augustine's Abbey on Fri.

Film alfresco: the best pop-up cinemas

An inspired setting for a screening can make a film more powerful. Here are some of the most interesting locations, including a cemetery, a haunted hotel and, er, a hot tub

For something so temporary in nature, pop-up cinema has become a permanent part of the landscape, with concepts becoming weirder and wilder. Erecting a screen in a park no longer cuts it. Last year we saw cinemas built under motorway flyovers, and the year before a disused petrol station got a silver-screen makeover. This year screenings are taking place in hot tubs, cemeteries, lidos and even a purpose-built post-apocalyptic drive-in, complete with wrecked cars.

The more people taking cinema out of cinemas, the more imaginative these events must become to stand out. In an age in which film can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime, anyhow, pop-ups can make cinema an unmissable event. An inspired setting for a screening can make a film more powerful,

WB’s Fantasy Epic The Seventh Son Adds Kit Harington

Now that his “Arthur and Lancelot” movie has been pushed back by Warner Bros. due to budgetary reasons, “Game of Thrones” actor Kit Harington is looking for something to occupy his free time in-between shooting the HBO fantasy series. What better project then another fantasy movie that’s being eyed (of course) as a new movie franchise? Harington has been added to the cast of Warner Bros’ “The Seventh Son”, the studio’s big-screen adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s series of young adult fantasy action-adventure novels. Sergey Bodrov (“Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan” and “Nomad: The Warrior”) will direct for the studio. “The Seventh Son” will adapt the book “The Spook’s Apprentice”: Thomas Ward is the seventh son of a seventh son and has been apprenticed to the local Spook. The job is hard, the Spook is distant and many apprentices have falled before Thomas. Somehow Thomas

Nomad Cinema Rocks Up At Whiteleys

With their archaic Odeon finally being given a 21st century makeover – nobody there received the memos about 3D, digital projectors or air conditioning – Whiteleys shopping centre in West London looked set to be cinema-less for this Christmas period.

But at the time of year for miracles, here on Queensway there has been one. The Nomad cinema has arrived to cure the winter blues with a series of classic movies – from cult classics like The Big Lebowski, greats from yesteryear like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and contemporary films that have made a smash like the funniest comedy of this year, Bridesmaids.

Famed as a traveling cinema, Nomad has dropped its anchor in the vacant store next door to HMV – a perfect location to blindside entertainment hungry shoppers. Think of it as watching a film in your mate’s garage on his massive projector. Admittedly this would require you to have an

30 Great Games That Defined Dreamcast

A 1999 demo promoting the ruinously expensive Shenmue (called “What’s Shenmue?”) featured an exclusive scene in which then company president Yukawa-san could be seen slumped at his desk, head in hands, surrounded by piles of unsold consoles (above). Deep down, Sega must have known the Dreamcast didn’t stand a chance even before they axed it two years later.

Even though the Sega Dreamcast enjoyed a relatively short lifespan (officially somewhere between its 1998 Japanese launch and late 2002 termination) and wasn’t supported at all by the most powerful publisher of the day (Electronic Arts) the well-loved machine still boasts an impressive library of titles.

Even extending this “best of” list, from the originally planned 10 to a whopping 30 games, has seen me leave out such gems as cult top-down shooter Ikaruga, well-regarded sports sim NHL 2K2, online deathmatch game Outtrigger, stylish BioWare-made shooter MDK2 and Street Fighter III: Double Impact (to

This week's new film events

Martin Scorsese's Paradiso Outdoor Cinema, St Germans

Scorsese isn't the first person you picture paddling in a Cornish estuary, but Port Eliot Festival has persuaded him to curate a season of evening double bills. His selection is defiantly old school – 1974's Murder On The Orient Express is the most recent. There are sumptuous epics such as The Leopard and The Red Shoes, and classic noirs Human Desire and The Narrow Margin. For more up-to-date fare (and more shelter), the parallel Paradiso Piccolo indoor event has newer documentaries and features including Project Nim, Velvet Goldmine and author Kevin Sampson introducing his rock'n'roll saga Powder.

Port Eliot, Thu to 24 Jul

Alex Pettyfer Is "The Last Apprentice"

  • Dark Horizons
Rising young British hunk Alex Pettyfer ("I Am Number Four," Beastly") has opted for one young fantasy lit adaptation over another it seems.

Screen Gems has been very keen on landing Pettyfer for their adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s best-selling young-adult books "The Mortal Instruments". However, Vulture reports that talks have reached an impasse and Pettyfer won't be starring. It's news seemingly confirmed this week by an open casting call that was announced for the role he was intended to play.

So what happened? Pettyfer has instead been offered the lead role in Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s best-selling series "The Last Apprentice" (aka. "The Wardstone Chronicles"), a book series he's much more a fan of apparently.

The story deals with a teenage boy training to be an exorcist in the 1700s and already other stars are circling including Jeff Bridges in the role of the boy's mentor,
