The harvest

If the Reapers have been around for thousands of cycles and harvest the most advanced species in each of those cycles then why are they still leviathan reapers? If the leviathans made them then why are the reapers still leviathans and only decided to harvest humans into a reaper form instead of species from other cycles?

The end of an era

So I was digging out my watchlist and talk recently, and reminescing on my misspent youth all those years ago editing guides and stuff around here. When I came across this discussion where it was noted Temporaryeditor78 fell afoul of recent policy changes.

It's not really my place to comment on the thread directly, I'm really but an outside observer and I'm not looking to make a stir, but I thought it was worth writing some notes about, because it has to be said, TE did a lot of work over the years. Nearly 30k edits is nothing to sniff at. He made large contributions to the consistency of the wiki and the upholding of a consistent MOS, which is something of a rarity in wikispace these days. The fact that he was still consistently editing wh…

A few clarifications

A few clarifications regarding Mass Effect 3:

  1. I played ME3 many times from beginning to end, more than I care to count. I played ME1 and ME2 too, but it was only a long time ago and not nearly as much as ME3. I don't play MP, though, as it feels like an unrelated different game.
  2. There is no right or wrong way to play any game, however, if an achievable goal is set under certain constraints, there must always be more optimal (right) and less optimal (wrong) ways to achieve that goal. For example, in a chess match, if the goal is set to lose, not to win, then every otherwise wrong move now becomes right, and the otherwise worst move (if it exists) becomes the very best. In a game like ME 3, if the goal is set to merely experiment with diffe…

Talking the Talk: A Look at Dialogue in Mass Effect: Andromeda

This is a review I wrote for an assignment way back in April. I found it on a USB recently and decided to post it here. Enjoy. Or Don't. Either-Or.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is the latest role-playing game to be developed by BioWare. Five years after the last entry’s release, Andromeda invites players to return to the immersive world of space battles, blue alien babes and interstellar exploration that first arrived on shelves back in 2007.

The game opens with humanity’s first entry into the titular galaxy. After six hundred years in cryogenic storage, the player’s character, the male or female Ryder, awakens to find the golden worlds they sought to colonise damaged beyond habitability and is then tasked with finding a new planet to call home. The …

Over 95 hours and not close to finishing (no spoilers).

Sooooo..... I expected the scale of Mass Effect: Andromeda to be a little larger than the first Mass Effect, having read about it before the release.

How wrong I was.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is immense in every sense of the word. As a completionist, I'm almost disheartened when I look at the cluster map, asking myself, "Another 2-3 golden worlds to explore every nook and cranny, with seemingly with no end in sight?". I believe the major contribution to this feeling is the daunting number of tasks the game has to offer. One article recommends focusing on the main story missions first which I did... to some extent. Despite trying to focus on the main missions, I can't shake the feeling that I need to clear out existing assignments and tasks, be…

The Facial Animation 'Scandal'

All over the internet it seems that much of the criticism of Mass Effect: Andromeda seems to fixate on the poor facial animations. Are the animations poor? Yes, they are, and I think even animators at BioWare would agree with that. I do think the amount of criticism is excessive and I think the fixation on it makes it tough to find and honest review, but I don't think it's unfair. Mass Effect has long been known for its storytelling, and when the faces of those telling the story aren't convincing, it really harms the ability of players getting into the storyline.

I do think that a shortcoming of this magnitude is inexcusable. While some animators have said that it is because of improved graphics and players becoming more adept at seeing poo…

ME:Andromeda Reviews

It's the day before release and the reviews are starting to roll in:

Gamespot: 6/10 IGN: 7.7/10 GameInformer: 8/10 Polygon: 7.5/10 PC Gamer: 80/100

The common criticisms seem to be that there are technical issues, they don't like the supporting characters, and they feel that there aren't enough "big decisions".

I feel that reviewers have gotten into the habit of overplaying technical issues. I find that often they are playing on a non-final build, and naturally those builds have less polish. Essentially, if they don't keep the game from being fun, they should affect the score too much. It seems that the penalties given here were pretty harsh.

We'll see about the supporting characters. I do think it will be hard to beat the original series in t…

Could the Andromeda Initiative have planned a way to return to the Milky Way Galaxy?

The stated goals of the Andromeda Initiative are to not only explore and establish permanent settlements on the "Golden Worlds" of the Heleus Cluster, but also to establish a reliable route between these colonies and those in the Milky Way Galaxy. So will the Nexus and/or Arks be sent on another 600 year-long integalactic journey back, to report the Andromeda Initiative's success to the Citadel Council? (assuming Shepard didn't refuse the Catalyst's options and the Citadel races succeeded in ending the cycle of the Reapers' "Harvest") Or will the Andromeda Initiative construct its own mass relay to connect the Heleus Cluster to the Milky Way's relay network? (not implausible, as the protheans constructed their own mass relay, the Conduit, …

Fandom Wikias are for Admins only...

I would like to address an issue going on with the administrators retaining quality control over the wikia to the extent where I simply can't make an edit without an admin subjecting it to rollback. I've been a major fanatic of the Mass Effect franchise (for the epic space opera that it is) for over five years but as an editor on this wikia I've constantly been treated like a total stranger to the point that it simply feels like living a police state. I even considered dropping out time to time, but this is the only wikia I know that's completely dedicated to all things Mass Effect.

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…

What We Know So Far V - 4K Tech Video and Other Information

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…

ME Trilogy Remaster likely a no-show

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.

Womp womp.

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.

Why Andromeda?

Not that I think it isn't a good place to continue Mass Effect at. I'm just wondering, if the Milky Way peoples were able to build an intergalactic sleeper ship, why not first explore the satellite galaxies closest to the Milky Way, such as the Magellanic Clouds? I'm just saying our of curiosity. But I can imagine the Local Group being explored as a whole someday, if they wanted to do it.

About these Andromeda books...

First of all, all the reports that came out in late June said that the first of the Mass Effect: Andromeda books was to come out sometime this month. Has anyone found anything as far as an exact date? I've searched various online stores and I can't seem to find anything as far as it being on sale yet. The best source I've found, the publishers rights guide @ just says August 2016. Also, something interesting is that the title of the book on the cover graphic does not match the stated title Mass Effect: Andromeda Initiative. This could indicate that the name changed at some point, or it was simply a mistake. According to this guide, the book is 336 pages long and i…

The BioWare Social Network is shutting down

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.

Ultimate Infiltrator Sniper guide ME3

With the correct selection of skills, weapons and mods, the Infiltrator not only becomes the most lethal sniper in the game but possibly the most lethal class in general, based mainly on how quickly they can make groups of things they don't like become dead and simultaneously rarely receive damage. The Soldier can be focused to be a decent sniper, it's just that the Infiltrator will be a lot better at it, and every other class and build have key aspects on how they fight that a sniping Infiltrator can surpass.

  • In mid to long range weapon combat without sniper rifles, other classes with other weapons need to fire multiple shots into any target, even weak ones, in order to kill them. At these ranges they often can't get the critical headshots…

Indoctrination Theory Theory

Yes, yes, I know, hear me out.

The so-called "Indoctrination Theory" holds in theory that Harbinger intruded Shepard's conscious mind via a seemingly advanced and overly elaborate indoctrination phase. Meaning; while our protagonist lied down in dust and rubble and blood, events occurring post "harbinger shot", as we will refer to for the sake of this blog, only exist in Cmmdr.
