It’s Halloween night and usually I watch a film. This year I decided to fire up the Xbox instead. Not often do I replay games once I’ve been through them once. The Mass Effect trilogy and Resident Evil 4 are the only ones I can think of. Something about this one made me want to go […]Read more "Game Replay – Alien: Isolation"
My journey through the Andromeda galaxy has finally come to an end. After a year and a half plodding along doing side quests and exploring, I finally got around to embarking on the final mission. This involves hunting down the Archon and finding Meridian; the huge Remnant city that can bring life to the entire […]Read more "The Andromeda Experience – 10"

Right, now I’m into the story a bit more. Having cleared out Eos and got as far as that can go for the time being, I did all the enforced conversation stuff on the Tempest and then decided to immerse myself in the next bit of the story by flying off to Aya, home of […]Read more "The Andromeda Experience – 5"
Hello again, Just a quick one but it’s been almost a month since I did the last update on my progress through Mass Effect Andromeda. I’ve also discovered that I can take screenshots on my Xbox and upload them to my Hotmail account. To be honest, I haven’t made much progress in the single-player campaign.

Eos. This is the first new part of Mass Effect Andromeda that I’ve found since I started. The introductory part had all followed a pattern that was quite familiar. However, I took my ship, The Tempest, out for a spin into the Heleus Cluster to the first world to which I had been directed. After playing […]Read more "The Andromeda Experience – 3"
