I have no words...
No. Wait. I'm wrong. I have some words to say. First off, let me start off with some good news. That's what this blog is all about, in light of the US election: the good news. A whole slew of information about Mass Effect Andromeda over the past few days.
N7 Day happened on Monday, November 7, 2016. With it came the cinematic trailer everybody has been waiting for. Here's my breakdown:
- An arc ship mysteriously breaking down as her crew tumbled around. Some were sucked into space. The male Ryder screamed and fell as the ship crashed into an unknown planet. As this happens, Alec Ryder says, "We slept for hundreds of years... dreaming of a new home. But when we finally awoke, our dreams of peace, were shattered." in juxtaposition…

It's here. Some gameplay footage of the upcoming Mass Effect: Andromeda. If you ever have any feelings of excitement or ecstasy, don't worry. It's only natural you feel that way. In fact, I'm fairly certain more people are here for that than the Playstation 4 Pro.
That's not all. In an interview on Playstation Access, we don't play as a single protagonist whose gender we select at the start, we have two protagonists--a brother and a sister. Not only that, do you remember the N7 soldier from the E3 2015 trailer? Yep, he's their father. One big happy family, right? Knowing BioWare, they'll probably pull off something like Fallout 3 and 4, having one of the siblings and/or the father killed for the feels. Along with that and some dad jokes. The…Read more >
On September 1, 2016, Peter Moore have ruled out against remastering their games, including Mass Effect. He claimed that they would rather move forward with their upcoming games, with remasters distracting from that.
Do note that this was quoted before Patrick Soderland's interview regarding the potential for a remastered version.
UPDATE: Now EA are considering making a remaster after a lot of demand from the last interview.Read more >
As of today, BioWare will be shutting down the BioWare Social Network, or BSN for short, on August 26th. It will be in read-only mode until October 25th. BSN is known for a lot of things, such as being a fan community with some esoteric elements, like people finding out what Tali's sweat smells like (no, I'm not making it up). While most fans met with each other there, some are disappointed with the closure while others are content or pleased with the news.
If you're wondering how much of a cesspool BSN is, you can check out Something Awful's article on it.

Please stay on topic. Be courteous and excellent to each other. Don't discriminate based on sexuality, gender and identity, race, religion, political affiliation, etc., and make things safe for work. A little bit of profanity is fine, but don't be excessive about it.
Hey, guess who's back? Me! It's been a while since the last time I posted any news/leaks related to Mass Effect: Andromeda. To make it up for the lost time, here are some goodies.
If you haven't heard, not only would EA would be participating at E3 2016 later this month, they'll be hosting their own press conference and livestream called, you guessed it, EA Play. Not only would they announce more info about games like Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2, people are hoping they'll release …
