Indeed, the goal of Mass Effect is exploring new worlds and not dying in the process; as such the game does not only explore the sci-fi and action genre but also delves with the romance genre as well.

I feel disappointed. With Trump in the White House, erasing LGBT people from census questionnaires, planning massive anti-LGBT religious legislation, cutting HIV/AIDS research, surrounding himself by 97% homophobic and transphobic cabinet members, appointing an Anti-LGBT activist to the Civil Rights department and his promise to appoint anti-same sex marriage SCOTUS nominees, I was looking forward to this escape and after ME:3 and ALL of the Dragon Age games I was expecting fair and equal treatment as a fan who paid the same 60 bucks as all the straights and lesbians, I mean I didn’t even question it for a second… Read more »


While the game has two romance scenes, they’re extremely sub par in comparison to all other love interests in the game. The two gay male options are literally just a couple of side-NPCs, one of whom doesn’t even count towards the LI trophy. On top of this, the romance scenes for these two gay characters is very low quality IMO. As they only show some kissing, with the scene quickly fading to black. While straight/lesbian scenes virtually show full on nudity, much longer scenes, etc. On top of this, there are no gay/bi male squad mates to romance. Which in… Read more »


Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Josh. Hope you still find some enjoyment in the game, in spite of its glaring flaws.


Overall, I am loving ME: Andromeda. They’ve done great work with building out the character personalities and stories within the Andromeda universe. I’m highly curious to see just how good the movie night will be once I’ve managed to gather all of the snack items.

Bioware games are generally about the story and game play, not necessarily to look like the absolute best game out there. If folks are wanting games that look gorgeous, then linear,… Read more »

Nah, it’s always good to hear people’s insights. 🙂 Here’s hoping for better diversity and better games altogether.


Agreed! One of the primary ways of pushing for improvements in games/media-in-general is making our voice heard. So I’m hoping that, if they don’t patch or fix the M/M in Andromeda, that they’ll at least take all this criticism to heart and use it to improve in the next iteration. Though, it’d be an absolute pain to wait another 4-5 years to see if they learned from things. :/ Hope you enjoy playing ME: Andromeda and all it has to offer! I’m still amazed with the sheer number of quests they seem to have put into it. I keep bumping… Read more »
