Because it's always midnight somewhere...

Mass Effect: Andromeda drops tonight in North America! What are you doing to prepare for it? Share your thoughts, feels, and last minute squees here on this post, but just remember: no spoilers!

As a reminder:
The MEA MP Gamertag Swapmeet can be found here.

Another post will be going up at midnight EDT for first reactions. Please reserve this for pre-game burblings, especially for our European and Australian members who will not see the game until later this week.

DTakes23 interviews Danielle Rayne, voice of Vetra in Mass Effect Andromeda
I like pi!
Here's my review, overall I quite liked it! Here's the part where I talk about love interests if you want to skip everything else.

I tried to avoid any significant spoilers, but if there's specific things you want to know am happy to answer comments. I've only played 6 and a bit hours because a big mission was about to start and I'd rather wait until I can finish it properly. Would love to hear from anyone who can fill in the blanks re: flirting with characters (eg with a male Ryder)

T-MINUS 3 DAYS

Today's banner is dedicated as a final farewell to Commander Shepard, the character that initially carried many of us into the Mass Effect fandom and prompted the creation of this community and, later, the SLF tradition which began back on February 19, 2010, 24 days after the release of Mass Effect 2.

If whoever gets to this post first could create the following top-level collection threads, that would be fabulous:
<B>Remembering Shepard</B>
Post screenshots of "your Shepard" and your favorite memory from the original Mass Effect Trilogy


<B><FONT SIZE=4>EA/Origin Access Play First Trial Spoiler Thread</FONT></B>

If you're taking advantage of the first ten hours of the MEA single-player/storymode and want to talk details (aka 'spoilers'), please use this as the top level comment and put all spoilers within an &\lt;LJ-SPOILER&\gt; tag.

(Ed. note: remove the backslash (\) from within the & lt and & gt code in the second c&p example prior to posting)

The Rules

* Post any and all fandom fluff (i.e. non-gameplay related YouTube videos, reviews of the game from other sources, silly fan speculation, icon posts, image macros, photo manips) or semi-to-totally off-topic stuff here and ONLY in this topic until the next one the following week. The definition of fandom fluff is entirely up to you, as the aforementioned are just general examples.
* NO PERSONAL ATTACKS/DRAMA. PERIOD.
* WIP posts for fic/art/whatever must all be posted to one thread.
* Some comments may be NSFW. However, anything containing full-on nudity (especially if it includes reproductive parts) must be text linked.
* You may advertise for non-Mass Effect/BioWare related communities during SLF (but not outside of it)


*** ON SPOILERS ***

SLF should be considered a spoiler zone for all traditionally released "Mass Effect: Andromeda" material and the entirety of the original Shepard Trilogy. If you haven't finished ME1-3 -OR- you're avoiding any and all MEA spoilers, enter at your own risk!

All SPOILERS from the EA/Origin Access Play First Trial should go behind an <LJ-SPOILER> tag and in their own thread (see above)

Monday night at 11pm EDT an "initial reaction" spoiler thread will go up where people will be able to share their full game thoughts for that first week or so. Please refrain from posting those here.
ME - AI logo
Since some people have already started access to multiplayer in the EA/Origin Access Play First Trial, how about another gamertag sharing session for multiplayer meetups?

I'm going to handle things a bit differently this time around with separate threads for each of the three platforms to make it a little easier for people to find the tags relevant to their system.

Please include the following info when you post:

Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One
Gamertag: The name people can find you under/your account name
Availability: The times you tend to be online and willing to group up. (Remember to include your timezone!)
Voice? Do you have Skype, Ventrilo, Teamspeak 3, Mumble, Discord, Xbox or PS4 headset, that you're willing to use?

Add anything else you'd like people to know, such as what kind of game you're looking for- are you in for the challenge and achievements or just to goof off?

(Side notes:
- This post will be reference linked copiously in posts going forward so it won't be lost in the deluge.
- I'll be attempting to resurrect our previous Tactics Tuesday posts for MEA starting on March 21st.)

February 23rd, 2017 - GiantBomb Plays some Andromeda!
Sakura White


Giant Bomb gets their hands on an unfinished copy of ME:A

Mostly, they show off b-roll video that has been released before, but Brad talks about some of the first mission that he got to play through and what he encountered/thinks.

Unlocked got to play some as well.
GamesRadar talk about their gameplay.
More impressions

"Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer braves a hostile new galaxy as Dr Lexi T’Perro in Mass Effect: Andromeda

In the newest instalment of the Mass Effect series, Lexi enters the depths of outer space, stepping on board The Tempest. Natalie Dormer voices one of the game’s central characters and one of the first characters players will meet when they wake up from their 600-year cryo sleep.

Dr Lexi is calm and compassionate with a feisty edge. Her role is to maintain crew fitness, both physical and mental, and research how the environments and situations they are exposed to throughout the Andromeda galaxy affect human biology and psychology.

Mass Effect: Andromeda will be available on 23rd March on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Origin for PC."

Haha! I shared this post about the excitement for Mass Effect 3 on my FB and received it as a memory today. Still pretty applicable for the new Andromeda! Right?! (Next month, and February is short again this year!)

One month left! And don't forget, February is a short month!

February 3rd, 2017 - This Week on MSPixel!
mememe
This week on MSPixel, just to take a break, I've been drawing a series where my husband, who hates RPGs, manages to experience several RPGs. One of them was Mass Effect.



Look, we were all naive once.

(I did other RPGs too, if you want to click through to the main site and have a laugh!)
