A taste of Mass Effect Andromeda has me wanting more

By  • 

Bioware finally takes the blanket of secrecy fully off Mass Effect Andromeda this week. It’s impossible to overstate how popular the Mass Effect franchise is. I have friends with weapons from the game tattooed on their forearm (Hello Stein.) Members of my family have insisted on sending me home from a party early so that I could play the first three games in the series. Yes, I’m that guy amongst a sea of gaming fans who has managed to skip every game in the series until now. Don’t look at me that way. I didn’t have an Xbox 360 when the first Mass Effect arrived. By the time the last one was available I was living on my own. Rent payments and Ramen came first.

Stacks On Stacks: Mass Effect Andromeda, Switch Launch Games & What I Won’t Be Playing 

By  • 

Remember the shivering cold days of late November? Every once in a while, we’d stop to think about all the games that’d just made their début. We’d sit in our arm chairs, finishing another Xbox One game on our bucket lists and luxuriating in all the free time we were going to have to enjoy them over the holidays? Jokes on you folks. It’s February and Spring 2017 games are just around the corner. It’s time to kick this bad boy into high gear.

Quick Words: Of Xbox Insider Program, Early Updates and Thurrott

By  • 

I don’t just spend a lot of time interacting with technology. I spend a ridiculous amount of time reading about it too. Since the tender age of 17, I’ve read one guy at least once a day, Thurrott’s Paul Thurrott. If you asked me why I still read him day after day, I wouldn’t be able to tell. I think it’s just out of habit at this point because it surely isn’t about the content. Take his shot at the Xbox Insider Program from earlier today.

Ask The en: Steep, Xbox One Price Cuts & Leaving Groove Music Pass 

By  • 

I have to admit that I had a very hard time resisting the urge to start this month’s Ask The en with a quote from Albus Dumbledore’s end of term speech in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. First, I’m a geek. Second, it feels like only yesterday I was sitting down to pen the first 2016 edition of the column. It also seems odd that already we’re talking about holiday Xbox One price cuts, the last few game releases of the year and other random musings. Yet here we find ourselves.

Bruh, We Gotta Talk About This Watch Dogs 2 Season Pass

By  • 

I picked up my Xbox Controller and said, “Xbox on.” A few minutes later I found myself inside the game menu. The game has a very convenient screen for learning about new downloadable content. I saw a character skin that I liked and figured I’d download it. After all, I spent $100 on a game and Season Pass. I might as well take full advantage.

If we’re already paying full price for title, why is it ok for video game DLC to cost even more? I asked a few people they buy it.
