Mass Effect: Andromeda — Screenshot Theater

When life gets busy, there’s nothing like a good ol’ screenshot gallery, amirite?

Wait, what?

Nothing. Never mind. It’s just that I made this super quick Mass Effect: Andromeda screenshot theater video for Virtual Bastion’s YouTube channel, and you should totally check it out. Totally.

VIRTUAL BASTION

Being over three weeks old now, Mass Effect: Andromeda feels a little like old news. Most people I know who have it have already completed at least one playthrough. Speedy hares they are! I, on the other hand, am the tortoise in this gaming race — slow and steady. And yes, this is a fancy way of saying that I haven’t made much progress in the game since my first impressions post. (sigh)

Ac!d Commander: And Now…the Big Twist! (GASP!)

This is my new game project: “Ac!d Commander.” It involves Metal Gear Ac!d for the PSP. Rather than being in written form, I decided to do an actual Let’s Play, making videos and everything. I’ll be posting one to three new videos every Friday from today until the game is over. I welcome any comments and discussion. Apologies in advance for any audio hiccups, video malfunctions, or other jackassery, which will surely ensue.


One video this week, but it’s got one of those “holy shit!” moments. (As if this game wasn’t full of them already…) And it’s a great one. Trust me, you’ll wanna watch.

(By the way, it’s not one where I fuck up and die…that’s par for the course.)

Dumb Clothes

It’s okay, you can say it…I don’t mind. Really.

I know that my current wardrobe is…

boring.

There’s no two ways about it. Though kind people might say my closet is full of “staples” or “classics,” the truth of the matter is that my current cast of clothing options is dull. This is not to say that I don’t enjoy color or prints or a nicely-designed and classy pair of jeans, it’s simply to say that I’m not very trendy.

Anymore.

What stories will they tell of us in the future?

Being someone with a livelihood that’s invested in historical and cultural institutions, I was quite pleased to stumble into a museum of sorts during a recent session with Mass Effect: Andromeda. The spot is called the Cultural Exchange Center. It’s tucked away in an unnoticeable corner of the Nexus, a massive space station and central hub of the game. The center, while not vast, contains a number of interactive holographic displays of items, such as the Citadel, and races: human, Krogan, Asari, Turian, and Salarian. The room appears to be a work-in-progress, as there are a couple blank displays, as well as one that will likely hold the history of Ryder, the Pathfinder. (Though that’s only a guess.) With the species displays, players are presented with a general greeting from each hologram, and then may choose to learn more about the species’ home world or history. Being the goofy person that I am, I chose to spend some time listening to as much information as each display would give. I summarily found my jaw on the floor each time a display when over its races’ history.

Site News: Changes Inbound!

Last week I was pleased to be the bearer of great news concerning United We Game‘s future. Like, really great news! Like…like…superscrumdiddlyumptious news!! Just…click below before I make a total fool of myself. Like, a real total fool. Like…like…

VIRTUAL BASTION

When Hatm0nster, The Duck of Indeed, and I came together some four years ago to venture in the world of game blogging and journalism, we had no idea where that journey would take us. All we knew was that we wanted to create an inclusive virtual space that revolved around games, involved the gaming community, and would serve as a refuge for anyone who wanted to pay a visit. Our goal was our name: United We Game! Because while we are strong as individuals, we’re even more powerful together. Through video games, we are united by a common pastime and a common set of goals and mutual feelings. We are united by a desire to express our opinions and discuss them in an open forum.  And we are united as a community; we invited you to join us. Many of you have stuck with us, written with us, shared your…
