…Sorry, folks, I got nothing.

Unless you want to hear about how I’m ready to let that turian dude get exiled because he was engaging in conduct unbecoming in a turian.  Because I’m absolutely ready to do that.  When it comes to the Mass Effect universe, I have like zero tolerance for turians who let the species down. With great badassery comes great responsibility, and when your iconic figure is Garrus, well.

Sorry, yeah, this is mostly what’s taken over my brain.  You all know how that goes.

‘Reignite.’

Ach, who am I kidding? I’m pumping myself up for midnight.  Not going to play it all night, though. Just enough to confirm that the game is up and running. In the meantime, here’s some ridiculously good fan Mass Effect music.

The Mass Effect Combat Gameplay video.

Looks like fun.  Looks like fun that may end up being a resource hog on my computer.  I need to look up the Mass Effect: Andromeda specs…

A scene from the Mass Effect (1) LARP.

See? You could totally do this with a M35 Mako. Bioware wasn’t having you on.

Watch it fast, because it might or might not go away soon:

Today is N7 Day! [Bumped.]

UPDATE: Here’s the trailer.  Looks like it’s an adventure! …Which, to quote somebody or other, means that somebody else is in deep sh*t, far away.

I dunno when they’re dropping the Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer, but it will probably be today.  I will not lie: I am looking forward to it. And I just got my N7 hoodie back from my sister’s, so I will be appropriately dressed for the announcement.

…Well, OK, I have to take the car to the Jiffy Lube and then do groceries because we have no food in the house.  But I will be watching the announcement in spirit.  More or less.

Yup, they’re going to announce Mass Effect: Andromeda on N7 Day.

This is pretty much a given, at this point.  Also: GET THE HECK OFF OF THE SEA OF TRANQUILITY SYSTEMS ALLIANCE HERITAGE SITE, YOU DAFT IDJITS.  Geez, were you people raised by varren?

[UPDATE: As was noted in Twitter, it’s almost certainly not coming out next week. But we’re probably getting a release date. Finally.]

Yeah, there’s no real impetus for remastering Mass Effect.

I can totally see this. Peter Moore of EA:

“Could we make an easy buck on remastering Mass Effect? Yes. Have a thousand people asked me that? Yes they have. Do we have… No.”

Look. I have a Mass Effect hoodie. I have Mass Effect cufflinks.  I played all three games. Loved them to death – and yes, I was fine with the ending, if only because I was feeling guilty over what I did to Shepard at that point and I needed closure. But I’m not out there playing any of the games.  They’re not endlessly re-playable like, say, Skyrim was.  Maybe if the Mass Effect franchise had stayed a pure RPG and done open world and modding I’d feel differently, but they didn’t and that’s fine.

So, yeah.  Stick to ME: Andromeda, Bioware.  That’s what I want to see.

My belated look at the EA Mass Effect: Andromeda video.

A little weird that I missed this at the time, but it happens.

Crud. Mass Effect: Andromeda pushed back to 1Q 2017.

Pity: I was looking forward to playing it over the holidays.  And… wow. Has it really been four years since Mass Effect 3 came out?  Time absolutely flies by sometimes, it seems.

Don’t use Mass Effect 2 in your fanboy political ads. EA will *cut* you.

I liked Mass Effect 2. I found it to be more of a FPS/RPG hybrid than a pure role-playing game, although having played ME2 before Mass Effect I wasn’t as upset about that as other people. Anyway: great game, great game. Don’t ever rip off Bioware’s/EA’s IP for political purposes without permission. (more…)

Mass Effect: Andromeda to have bigger galaxy map, Mako.

At least, that’s the word.  And no Commander Shepard, which is simultaneously depressing and reassuring. Just because I want her back doesn’t mean that it’d be good to bring her back.  My reaction is all very narrative-based, I suppose.

Bad news? They’re gonna be pushing multiplayer.  Of course.  There’s money in that. …Sorry. Letting the cynicism seep in.
