Mass Effect: Andromeda

Release Date: Tuesday, March 21, 2017

  • See it on Amazon for $47.99 with Prime (PS4, Xbox One or PC); or $53.99 with Prime (Deluxe Edition for PS4 or Xbox One)

A new adventure awaits in the universe with Mass Effect: Andromeda, the first next-generation game in the expansive sci-fi RPG franchise Mass Effect created by acclaimed studio Bioware. Mass Effect Andromeda takes place far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy. With stunning visuals and a new galaxy to discover, BioWare delivers the next generation of space exploration.

Mass Effect: Andromeda takes players far beyond the boundaries of the Milky Way into the depths of the Andromeda galaxy. Become the Pathfinder and lead humanity’s search for a new home in this uncharted and unforgiving region of space. Discover the secrets of a vast galaxy, battle hostile alien threats, build your crew and tap into deep progression and customization systems to make them your own. This is the story of humanity’s next chapter, and your choices throughout the game will ultimately determine our survival and place in the Andromeda Galaxy. As you unravel the mysteries of Andromeda — with the future of our species resting on your shoulders – you must ask yourself … How far will you go?

Sing

Release Date: Tuesday, March 21, 2017

  • See it on Amazon for $19.96 (Blu-ray)

From our Review: Illumination Entertainment has been on something of a roll ever since 2010’s Despicable Me through to this year’s The Secret Life of Pets. Sing, sadly, sees the roaring creative engine under that hood slow to an idle purr with the occasional throaty rev. Also, coming at the tail end of a year where there have been far superior humanimal animations in theaters, Zootopia specifically, and just more effectively constructed animated movies period, it already faces a number of hurdles even before the opening credits roll.

Assassin’s Creed: The Movie

Release Date: Tuesday, March 21, 2017

  • See it on Amazon for $19.99 (Blu-ray)

From our Review: Assassin’s Creed, the first film to spin out of Ubisoft’s popular action/adventure franchise, has high aspirations. Director Justin Kurzel has reunited with the stars of his last project, 2015’s Macbeth, to create a project that is just as serious, just as weighty, despite at its core being about the quest for a magical apple through advanced virtual reality. Though it’s bolstered by some glorious action sequences and a stellar cast that really gives us their all, the lack of any levity whatsoever in Assassin’s Creed amounts to a soulless experience that wastes its potential.

Troll and I

Release Date: Tuesday, March 21, 2017

  • See it on Amazon for $39.99 with Prime (PS4 or Xbox One)

Deep in the Nordic wilderness, a teenage boy named Otto is forced to flee his home after a band of brutal hunters rip through his village in search of a mythical creature rumored to inhabit the forest. Now on the run for his life, Otto inadvertently finds and befriends the elusive creature being sought by the hunters. Thus begins the perilous adventure of Troll and Otto.

Discover the dynamic bond between Troll and Otto, two outcasts struggling to survive together. These unlikely friends embark on a journey through treacherous territory plagued with rivals. Natives to the forest, Troll and Otto must use their inherent skills to sneak, strategize, and battle their way back home. The forest is filled with unknowns, and teamwork is pivotal to staying alive.

Dreamfall Chapters – PS4 and Xbox One Versions
