Is this our first glimpse at the name of the Mass Effect: Andromeda protagonist?

Would certainly make some sense

The internet is full of really eagle-eyed geeks, the kind of people willing to freeze frame trailers that seemingly show off absolutely nothing and find nuggets of new information in them. Sometimes they are right on the mone...

Mass Effect: Andromeda teaser is all filler

A new journey and details about it await
Nov 07
// Kyle MacGregor
Happy "N7 Day," Mass Effect fans! I hope you can muster up some excitement for this teaser trailer, which is mostly a montage of old space footage with Commander Shepard (voiced by Jennifer Hale) putting a bookend on the original trilogy, as we move forward with a new story and different heroes. Mass Effect: Andromeda is expected to launch in late 2016.

We're not getting any new Mass Effect: Andromeda news this N7 Day

Also: N7 Day is a thing, apparently?
Nov 03
// Joe Parlock
Apparently November 7 is a day for all things Mass Effect that EA really wants to get off the ground. Think of it like May 4 is for Star Wars, except only really BioWare pays attention to it. You see, the joke here is that Co...

Electronic Arts reveals Mass Effect: Andromeda

Holiday 2016
Jun 15
// Chris Carter
Electronic Arts kicked off their 2015 E3 conference with a bang, revealing Mass Effect: Andromeda, a new entry in the Mass Effect series. Not much is known other than a "holiday 2016" release date. Honestly? I'm still in for more Mass Effect games -- I never really cared that "the ending for the third game sucked," because that doesn't completely negate three fantastic 30-hour experiences.

Also, we are eight years old.
Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.
