Resonance: The Outer Worlds – Main Theme

Even though the Mass Effect series has become my current jam, it doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about The Outer Worlds.

Why Mass Effect?

I knew that I’d never reach the grandiose levels of some players, but that didn’t matter as much as simply enjoying the wacky, post-apocalyptic world of West Virginia.
