About a year ago, I wrote a couple of posts about the forthcoming Mass Effect Andromeda video game.
I mentioned it once in some random thoughts about the assertion that the secret to happiness was having something to look forward to. At the time I was looking forward to seeing my great-granddaughter Melody for the first time, and to my new insurance taking effect, and to this, the latest installment of the Mass Effect series.
And then I mentioned it when Bioware announced that the game would be coming out in fiscal Q4, which is January-March 2017. I’m still not sure if there is an official release date, though I keep seeing March 21 mentioned in random posts. There are also new Mass Effect novels that will be coming out, and as a completist and aging fanboy, I will read those as well. I really do enjoy the Mass Effect universe.
In the present, the ending days of 2016, I am subjecting Shepard to an Insanity run on ME2. It’s the only thing between me and another platinum trophy. Earlier this year, I earned the platinum for ME1. I wanted to earn platinums for ME2 and ME3 before Andromeda comes out, but I probably won’t make it in time. I’m having trouble saving Garrus/Archangel at the moment and don’t see things getting easier.
In my pursuit of happiness, I have other things I’m looking forward to as well. I will write about these things later, I think. Probably around New Years.
