This week Trees makes another trek to the casino while Fred is dealing with furniture and odd balls at the grocery store. On the gaming front, Trees continues with Mass Effect Legendary Edition and a bunch of Dead Cells (including DLC), but the hot topics are MiiTopia arriving and the joy of Snowrunners. Fred is still enchanted by Spider-Man Remastered (although he had played the original version on PS4), not quite feeling Disco Elysium: Final Cut, and being gutted by the state of PS VR’s port of Vader Immortal (all 3 eps).

This week Fred and guest Matt Bradford re-visit the Mass Effect trilogy.  Although GH101 tackled this with a previous episode, it was time to go back to the well and delve a bit deeper into the mechanics, evolution, and critical opinions placed upon one of the most significant series of last generation.

One of BioWare’s largest gaming achievements would have to be Mass Effect.  In the follow-up to Jade Empire, and after 3 years of development, the original premiered on Xbox 360 and established the closest example to Star Trek in gaming.  An entire universe was literally developed for the series and despite some stumbles here and there, the Mass Effect series is of the most notable from last generation.  Join Fred, Jam, and special guest Me10dee as they delve into the world of Commander Shepard.
