Mass Effect Trilogy Review [ SPOILERS]

Hi, I’m Jen. Since Angela and I are on a mini pod-vacation, this week I’m releasing a Mass Effect trilogy review that my friend Chris and I recorded for Treks In SciFi. We produced the episode several years ago and I have permission from Rico of Treks In SciFi fame to post it here as well. Yay! Thanks, Rico.

I’ve wanted to feature the Mass Effect trilogy on Anomaly for years, but because I’ve brought up potential parallels in our recent Star Trek: Beyond and Stranger Things reviews, I thought now would be a good time to introduce you to the epic sci-fi RPG series I’ve been talking so much about.

It’s also top of mind because I’m entering the BioWare: “Explorer’s Wanted” contest, in which fans of the series have an opportunity to win a role in a new Mass Effect game. My hunch is that it’s the much anticipated Mass Effect Andromeda game (see trailer below). It’s a long shot, for sure, but I’m going to throw a Hail Mary and hope that they catch it. Wish me luck!
