galaxies and shires

I’ve just finished Mass Effect: Andromeda and I really enjoyed it.  On the downside, there were a few too many ‘busy’ tasks which I ignored and the planets felt a bit… rushed, I suppose.  I did expect more differences in the flora and fauna between planets.  I think playing it way after launch was beneficial…

end of blaugust

I really don’t know what happened this summer, I was really looking forward to it and I just somehow missed it.  This summer has just been so busy with so much to organise – I’m completely out of routine and couldn’t make room in my head for either gaming or blaugust…  it’s hard writing about…
