Puzzler The Turing Test Coming To PS4

Developer Bulkhead Interactive has announced that its first-person, introspective puzzle title The Turing Test is coming to PS4 on January 23 (it is currently out for the Xbox One and PC).

Players are put in the boots of Ava Turing on a space station orbiting Jupiter's moon Europa. Ava descends to the moon's base to help her crewmates who are in danger. Puzzles ensue requiring Ava to move energy via her Energy Manipulation Tool, and the solutions to these are often trickier than they may first seem, and game's story also makes one think.

Mass Effect Andromeda Coming In March

The last Mass Effect game released about five years ago, and that's a long time to wait for a new installment if you're a fan. Well, the wait is almost over: BioWare has announced the release date for Mass Effect Andromeda.

According to a blog post from BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn, Andromeda will be available on March 21. Previously, the game only had a vague "spring 2017" release, which means that the studio technically could have targeted April or May. However, Flynn says that the members of the studio played the latest version over the holidays, and the endorsement offered by those employees played a role in locking down the March date.
