Mass Effect: Andromeda — Screenshot Theater

Being over three weeks old now, Mass Effect: Andromeda feels a little like old news. Most people I know who have it have already completed at least one playthrough. Speedy hares they are! I, on the other hand, am the tortoise in this gaming race — slow and steady. And yes, this is a fancy…

Despite having a wholly exhausting Tuesday (the 21st – release day), I was determined to enjoy all that Mass Effect: Andromeda could offer that evening.
