Mass Effect Andromeda goes on

After having finished Mass Effect Andromeda I was not expecting to have much left to do. I had a few things I had not yet completed, but to my pleasant surprise there seemed to be at least a couple of things that were not triggered until after the main story was finished. I am not […]

Finished Mass Effect Andromeda: Well worth the money

I’ve finished Mass Effect Andromeda and the game is, in my humble opinion, well worth what I paid for it. There is a lot of things left unfinished, but that is good in my opinion, it gives a lot of place to expand out into and I really look forward to future expansions and games […]

Mass Effect Andromeda Walkthroughs and Guides… helpful or not?

Why I do not live stream

There are a few reasons for my not live streaming play, the biggest being that my connection does not allow for such things to be possible. I can not share play or let others watch my gaming. It is a shame, since I have had several requests to watch my gameplay, but until I have […]

Mass Effect Andromeda: Victory in Defeat

Early this morning I wrote about a battle I had got into where my companions were locked in another room and dead while I tried to solo an Ascendant. I am happy to report that I won the fight, I beat the cuss… and was then slaughtered by the four bad guys that had got […]

SOLVED: Mass Effect Andromeda PS4 stuck on black loading screen after cut scene

One of the first major things you do in Mass Effect is visit a certain world where you meet up with a new species called the Angara. Everything went smoothly for me, until the end of the first talk with the Angara where one of them joins my crew, then the game went into a […]
