Don’t know about you, but we sure are happy to be bringing another week to a close. And what a week it’s been for fans of Mass Effect! Hope everyone who got their hands on Mass Effect: Andromeda is having a good time with it. Back here in planet Earth, we’ve been adding lots to our YouTube channel, so let’s take a look back on the week that was!
Thank you all for joining us on this lovely Friday (Happy St. Patrick’s Day to those celebrating!) for another look back at our week in YouTube. All in all, it was a solid week. Even with the end of the cutest game in the world (probably), Kirby’s Return to Dreamland, we ventured on with a number of our continuing Let’s Plays. Keep reading and watching to see how things are progressing!
For as long as I’ve played Mass Effect, I’ve only ever played it on the Xbox 360. I imagine that this may be the case for many players, as well. After all, the first Mass Effect was an Xbox exclusive for a long time. It was ported to PC about a year after it’s release, but its port to the PlayStation didn’t happen for five years! And by then, which would have been 2012, Mass Effect 2 had been released. I played that on the Xbox 360. And then, when Mass Effect 3 was released on all platforms, I still played it on the Xbox 360. And just recently, when I got the full trilogy…yep, you guessed it…I got the Xbox 360 version. Nothing against the PlayStation, mind you — I heard that the PS3 version of the trilogy looks pretty nice – it’s just that, well, when I play Mass Effect, I like having that 360 controller in my hand. It feels comfortable and right.
Once I decided to commit myself to Mass Effect: Andromeda, I was faced with a slight dilemma. Harboring such comfortableness (read: stick-in-the-mudness) with Mass Effect on the Xbox, would I, or should I therefore have to get Andromeda on the Xbox One?
Hey there, good people of the Internet! It’s Friday (YAY!), and that means it’s time for our weekly YouTube review. This past week we had some great times in our continuing Let’s Plays, and we bid farewell to one that is now complete.

For reasons that still aren’t entirely clear to me, I was recently compelled to start Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. And what a strange ride is has been! Since my first post on the game, I’ve completed two more cases: Turnabout Samurai and Turnabout Goodbyes. If the first two cases were, for me, an introduction to the games mechanics and style, then the second two cases proved just how tricky (and weird) a defense lawyering is! Well…in the Phoenix Wright universe, anyway. (Maybe in the real world too?)
Playing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is largely like watching a mystery novel unfold. Each case presents you with a cast of characters and a grouping of evidence that you must then follow and use, respectively, to prove your client’s innocence. (I learned quite abruptly that getting a “guilty” verdict is akin to losing a life. The game makes you start over and try again.)
Hello everyone! Today marks the start of our new weekly wrap-up of video offerings. (So we’re no longer doing the monthly posts.) Each Friday, I’ll be posting here a few highlights from our YouTube channel, and hopefully you’ll click, like, subscribe, and share — because all that is pretty darn awesome, and it helps motivate us to keep bringing YOU the best gaming videos that we can! Also, leave us a comment and let us know what you think or what you’d like to see us play in the future. We’re readily open to any and all suggestions.
With that, let’s get on with the videos!
Regular readers might have caught a post I wrote a c ouple months ago in which I was a little down on Mass Effect: Andromeda. Unfortunately, I was harboring some bad thoughts about what Andromeda was purported to be back in early December, and that something was, as I perceived it, a mere shade of what I had hoped from a new Mass Effect adventure.
Well, here we are now, just twenty days away from Andromeda’s release, and…yep, I have to admit that I’ve changed my tune. I am now, fully and without exception, all aboard the Andromeda train. Woo woo!
