Gaming / 04/05/2021 Mass Effect: Legendary Edition – What we know so far

The Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is launching May 14th, remastering the original trilogy with all DLCs and new elements to bring the older games into the Modern World. It’s quite exciting; my experience with Mass Effect was only with Mass Effect 2 and its sequel’s multiplayer (which unfortunately is not being included!). Perhaps the most...

Gaming / 04/05/2021 Most Memorable Gaming Experiences

It isn’t just your local council that has imposed drought restrictions this summer.
