Mass Effect: Andromeda is currently the same price as Mass Effect 3 (PC) – $19.99

The Origin store is having a sale, and I found it interesting that Mass Effect: Andromeda is currently on sale for $19.99 which is the same price as 2012’s Mass Effect 3. It’s certainly been a troubled year for Andromeda, and I imagine it’s reputation is beyond repair at this point. Although I was incredibly excited for the game leading up to its release, I was quickly disappointed with it. I felt pretty much done with the game about four or five hours in, but forced myself to finish out the main story hoping that there would be something positive about it. The concluding mission was somewhat enjoyable, but most of the game was an absolute bore (I didn’t enjoy Dragon Age: Inquisition much either).

If you haven’t played the game yet maybe you’ll find it worth the $20 price tag, but I can’t recommend it to you. I still think it’s better to steer clear and hope for another reboot someday, however unlikely that is.

RISK is back (Xbox One)

RISK Xbox One

Back in December┬áRISK was posted on the Xbox One store and shortly after pulled from sale. It was mistakenly listed for sale (alongside Trivial Pursuit) and quickly pulled alongside a note saying it’s official release would be expected in early 2015.

Well this time it looks like RISK is here to stay. You can pick it up for $14.99. I’m probably going to end up purchasing it, but until then have any of you played it? What do you think of it? I’m somewhat torn on the price. I feel like $9.99 might be a more appropriate price, but maybe there’s enough content to justify it.
