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!
March 2017 has been a important month for games thus far. It’s been high-profile release after high-profile release so far, and with the nextDark Souls III dlc and final Destiny live event set to drop next week, it doesn’t look like things will be slowing down anytime soon. With all these major releases dropping one after another it can be easy to forget that there’s plenty going on in the independent scene as well, but there are some games that manage to break through nonetheless. Narcosis is one of them.

As players, we want our games to acknowledge us. More specifically, we want to see our actions make some sort of impact upon the worlds displayed on our screens. Well, only up to a certain point that is. We neither want nor expect our games to acknowledge everything we do, especially when it comes to triggering their endings. Instead, we want them to ignore us as we dally about finding extra loot and completing side-missions, leaving the ending to be triggered at our leisure. Most games do this, and we love them for it. However, it does make one wonder what would happen if a game didn’t do that. Well, it seems we can now find out.

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?
Earlier this week, Sony announce that they would soon be expanding the library of games available for streaming via their PlaySation Now service. Specifically, they’ll be making a number of PS4 titles available to the services’s subscribers. If PlayStation Now didn’t seem worth looking into before, this addition to the service might just be enough to change some minds. Continue reading Looks Like We’ll Be Able to Stream PS4 Games Soon
“That’s it, I’m buying this!” Unless you’re adamant about waiting for reviews before deciding to buy, you’ll more than likely make that decision based on a game’s previews alone. We’ve talked a bit before about effectively using previews to inform your buying choices, but that only really applies to game’s one isn’t already interested in. For those that have already won our attention, it’s really just a matter of showing us what we need to see. What do we need to see in order to convince u to buy? Well, that depends…
