Yo all my little Tayers! Slinkers in da hooouse!
Urgh, yeah, I will never try sound cool ever again...
I feel like my recent open forums has all been so personal. Lots of things has been going on and I had my ups and downs. (Well mostly downs.) So I am so damn pleased to say that I have nothing to say about my life this week. Finally my life is boring again!
Speaking of boring...
I’ve been playing Mass Effect: Andromeda, and.... I don’t really like it. This might be the first Bioware game I’ve feel disappointed in. It’s not the worst of them, I feel Dragon Age 2 has that spot firmly still. But Andromeda suffers from being not bad, nor great, just boring. By comparison to Dragon Age 2, it had a really engaging story and great characters that that kept me playing a poorly developed game. While this one I really have to struggle to care about what I am doing right now. Which is a shame because you can tell that a lot of love went into this game. It’s not some hasty sequel where the publisher tried to squeeze in as much greed as possible. It’s easily the most ambitious Mass effect since Mass effect 1. Even if I like Mass effect 2 the most, I can say it’s a compromised game compared to Mass effect 1. Gone are the space exploring and all the planets you could stumble upon. So I think it’s nice that Andromeda tries to do that yet again.
Although I could go over everything I don’t like about game. But there has been so many angry youtubers and articles about that already. It feels like I appreciate what this game trying to do so much that I just feel it’s a big shame that it doesn’t manage to deliver despite the effort. Of course that is just a bias idiot talking.
Anyway, before I start to cry, lets go ahead with the list:
- What is the most recent game that disappointed you?
- What is the most recent good game that was a pleasant surprise for you? (Mine is Night in the Woods.)
- Do you feel like you live a boring life at the moment? (This doesn’t have to be a taken as a bad thing, rather it can also be that you feel like you a have firm routine of your daily life that even if it’s not eventful, it’s comfortable and maybe free from stress .)
- I guess we could talk more about Mass effect...
- Or talk about anything!
(I’ve listen to this youtube channel so much lately. Do yourself a favor and turn it on while working, or just on the subway/car/buss and just want to relax. You deserve it. Cause I love you.)
