I think I've seen enough of Mass Effect Andromeda than I can say with confidence that I will not be playing it. When companies put out these kinds of technical and literary trainwrecks, don't tell them its ok by buying it.

Remember "QTE Expert" from the You Arcade in Shenmue? You did play Shenmue didn't you? Not only did the game basically invent and focus on QTE's, but it even had a mini-game in the arcade that was about as literal a QTE as you can get,...   read

About Cory Arnoldone of us since 11:17 AM on 08.07.2016

Definitely-not-a-weaboo Japan-based Destructoid writer.
Just a dude in his 20's trying to accomplish his dreams:
-Move in Japan: Check
-Attain fluency in Japanese: Preparing to smash the N2
-Travel the World. Next in mind: Russia, India, Germany, Israel, Eastern Europe
-Complete my massive backlog of movies and games: In progress
-Become a game journalist: Initiated



I like to tell myself I have OCD, which is one reason I obsessively try to visit as many countries around the world as possible and want to play every significant or at least well-received game out there (same goes for movies). I spend most of my free-time trying to clear those backlogs while also trying to obsessively learn as much about games in particular through various sources.



When I'm not busy overloading my brain with game stuff I'm watching (college) sports, traveling, and trying quirky new things in Japan like visiting owl cafes. I also contribute at Gematsu.
