I’m just coming from a quick Mass Effect: Andromeda session and let me tell you this: I wasn’t wrong last week, but I’m actually starting to enjoy it. It certainly isn’t GOTY material, something every BioWare game should strive for, but it’s nowhere near as bad as the early impressions everyone had made you think. If you want a bit more Mass Effect in your life, don’t. Wait, what? Didn’t I just say it’s not that bad? Yeah, but it’s broken as fuck on PC right now (and slightly on Xbox. No idea about the PS4 version.) The reason why I’m not playing at the moment? Constant CTDs on my system and I am not alone. So while I believe that ME:A will be worth your time eventually, maybe stick to some of the other amazing recently released games for now. Horizon, Zelda, Nier, Nioh,…
So, what will you be playing over the weekend?
Thomas: Despite the intro, I’m still trying to get a smooth(ish) experience out of Mass Effect. Wouldn’t be a PC gamer if CTDs and freezes kept me from gaming. Plus of course some stuff on the Switch. Splatoon 2 beta is right now, maybe I’ll check that out.
Tru: Not much time with fighting for my teaching credential but I did get my hands on Horizon Zero Dawn and have been ADORING it. Best new IP in a very long time. Also got a copy of Mass Effect: Andromeda, not sure I will have time to play it, but I hope to.
Scroo: More NieR: Automata for me pretty much. Still some Shadow of Mordor here and there and our Game Club pick as well.
Cody: Life and Lawn care. Hopefully I'll be able to hop on the mountain in Steep at some point
Andrew: Spending some time revisiting the PSP. Also, more Breath of the Wild.
Wolfe: adventures of pip is done! [playthroughs 2 + 3. 2 was practice for the lp. which is the /actual/ reason i've been playing it again.] i keep talking about playing more mordor and then i never do that, so maybe i'll pick it up again? :P - i dunno, man. i've already killed 715293 orcs. i'm not sure i have the stomach for more, right now. quest for glory 3 keeps yammering on and on and on and on. i forgot how much setup that game has before it lets you play. as for a mind forever voyaging, i've been allowed into 2061, but haven't ventured forth, yet. going to have consider what to replace pip with, though and i have noooo ideas. :)
