The Mess of Mass Effect Andromeda

Well, let me start by stating I’m a huge fan of the Mass Effect universe so I’m just throwing a couple of thoughts down here on my blog. I have been playing Mass Effect ever since ME2 came out (somehow missed ME1 when it came out) but I quickly got ME1 and since have lost count how many times I’ve replayed the trilogy over and over and over again…

So of course when Andromeda came along I was as excited as any Mass Effect fan would be. I went full out and preordered the super deluxe version… because.. it’s Mass Effect why not!

Anyway, once released I immediately start playing and… shocker… I actually like it! Yes, the title of this blog entry make it seems like I’m going to moan how bad it is and so on but… no, I actually like Mass Effect Andromeda. Sure, it has it faults like the laggy multiplayer, sound track that is ‘different’ and a few little bugs (like quests getting stuck) but mostly I like it.

The problem with it though is this: lots of other people that didn’t like it and started giving the general impression that this Mass Effect game is bad. So much so that it seems even the developers/creators of it seems to be in retreat, giving up or running away (well that is the impression I’m getting). Why am I saying this:

  1. The downsizing of the development studio that created Andromeda. Yes, it may be normal some times to do this after a release of a game to have people starting to work on other projects but the timing of all of this seems a bit suspicious.
  2. Previously there were talks of a DLC/sequel related to the Quarian ark – even at the end of the game it is hinted that this must be coming. However, since then it has become awfully quiet and seems all talk about a DLC/sequel has disappeared. Perhaps they are busy with it somewhere is secret but the silence plus downsizing together… is making us fans start to worry a bit.

Well, lets hope I’m wrong to worry about this and there will be some more (new) Mass Effect in the future. We would like to know what happen to our Pathfinder and the team plus what the Quarians are up to! Please Bioware, don’t disappoint!
