Sorry Mass Effect, but it’s not me, it’s you

Two nights ago I decided to play some Andromeda multiplayer. I hadn’t played in well over a week and was looking forward to shooting some aliens. The first game I joined ended with lost connection to Mass Effect server. No big deal, let’s have another go. The second game went fine for a bit, but ultimately I wound up staring at the blue screen of death. FFS. I reload the game, go back into multiplayer and try again. I was able to finish a game and extract, huzzah! But the sound cut out during Wave 4, leaving me with not but 60hz hum to listen to. It obviously wasn’t meant to be.

Last night I decided to try again. I found a lobby no problem and the host set it to a bronze strike team mission, cool. First couple waves went fine, then we had a host migration. It was all good though. We restarted the wave with 4 players and a new host. Before the wave ended, I was once again basking in the blue glow of an error screen.

You know what? If you want me to play your game, get your shit together. And if you ever want me to buy another BioWare title, you best get your shit together in a hurry.

Out came Mass Effect: Andromeda, in went Horizon Zero Dawn.

      1. I’m about 50-hours in so far and still not anywhere near completion. I keep getting sidetracked after seeing things in the distance and going, ‘Ooh what’s that?’
