Mass Effect Andromeda takes you on an adventure to a mysterious place far away from human eyes. No, not Aberdeen, the Andromeda galaxy!
But why would you want to go to Andromeda? I mean, it’s a long way away and as Mass Effect Andromeda shows us, the inhabitants aren’t always the most friendly.
But there’s plenty of reasons to go, so here’s our 10 Reasons to Go to Andromeda!
1. The Reapers Aren’t There
You might have heard of these robot chaps. they were quite the annoyances in the original Mass Effect Trilogy. Andromeda, rumour has it, is free of these mechanical monstrosities. So maybe it’s time to visit for a bit of robot peace?
2. A Fresh Start
Everyone craves a fresh start. Go on, examine yourself, you know you’d love to just drop it all, run off, assume a new identity and begin again. Well in the Andromeda galaxy you can! Choose a new name, choose a new history, choose whatever you like, no-one can prove anything!
3. You Want a Long Sleep
We’re all tired right? Work’s long, we never get enough sleep, and the world is….stressful right now. 600 years asleep would be PERFECT right about now. Imagine how rested you’ll feel after six centuries of cryosleep. Ah bliss.
Just hope we don’t have bad dreams.
4. TIME TRAVEL
Well OK, it’s more like ‘time passing’. But look at it like this, if you’re asleep for 600 years, it’s like you’ve time travelled 600 years into the future! Who KNOWS what cool things might have happened by then. Think how many more Marvel films there’ll be you can catch up on!
5. Air Miles
You might think you get a lot of air miles right now, flying back and forward between human locations. But if you could really get out there, take a trip to somewhere a bit further, think about how many air miles you could rack up! You could go on a free trip to Hawaii with all those saved up!
6. Andromedan Politics is Simpler Than Human Politics
No matter what’s out there, how many races are warring with each other, how many apocalyptic events are being put into motion, it’s still going to be simpler than what’s happening on Earth right now. The quagmire of our political reality is getting to be TOO MUCH, maybe Andromedan politics will be easier to understand and have opinions on.
7. You Might Meet Kevin Sorbo There
He’s probably still plopping about on the Andromeda Ascendant, pretending that his name is Dylan Hunt. It’s alright Kev, we know it’s you! Even if nothing else, it’d be nice to see a friendly face all the way out there, even if there’s a chance he’ll be DIS-APPOIN-TED by meeting you.
8.You Can Go Visit Sunny Algol
The real Algol is in our own galaxy, but in Phantasy Star, the Algol system where all the action takes place (and which acts as a plug for the universe’s evil) is located deep in the Andromeda galaxy. OK maybe Palma doesn’t exist anymore so you’re left with rapidly-wastelanding Motavia and absolutely-freezing Dezoris, and Rygol only comes around once every few hundred years. But think of the tan you can get on Motavia! Just mind the giant worms.
Did you know there’s floating rocks there? It’s true! The rocks, they float! That’s not something you can get at home, head out to ANDROMEDA for all your rock floating, floating rocks, and rocks that float needs.
10. It’s Really Far Away from Everyone Moaning About Animations
Ah, blesséd relief.
Mass Effect Andromeda is available right now, why not go for a trip to another galaxy today!
