In another moment of my personal and professional lives clashing I stumbled on this moment in Mass Effect Andromeda the other evening where Drack pointed out one of the major problems with Cyber Security in the 21st Century that's prevalent even in the 29th Century!
No spoilers in this video.
With Andromeda coming out towards the end of March, now is the perfect time to play through the first three games which fostered my love for this phenomenal sci-fi series. Except I’m only playing two of them.
Ruairidh, I hear you ask, why only two?
Well, while the original Mass Effect kick-started the franchise with an amazing original story and gameplay it is really Mass Effect 2 that is “THE” Mass Effect we think of when talking about it. That’s not to say that Liara, Kaiden, Ashley and Wrex’s contributions in the original should be discarded and ignored though.
Last week the wife and I decided to take in the latest iteration of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix. Having never read Daniel Handler's original book series myself and only watching Jim Carrey's 2004 film, I was curious to see what the differences would be between the two lead actors. With Neil Patrick Harris and Jim Carrey delivering some of my favourite moments and catchphrases this was certainly going to be interesting.
So I started writing this review when Titanfall 2 was going through Multiplayer Beta, which I had a cheeky go of. I thought I'd share some views on my trial and the original Titanfall (which is available on EA Access).
So I've been up to a fair bit for UnHipsterPod recently...
On Friday Tom and I sat down to record a video promo available on the home page as well as on youtube so that rather than listening to find out what we're about people can watch a short, minute long video to see us in action!
We then recorded our audio podcast with special guest Sam Smart where we talked about our favourite TV Shows. It's now available on Stitcher and iTunes.
We're busy coming up with themes and ideas for the next month or so of shows as well as figuring out the logistics of being able to sit in a pub and podcast...
Got a fun night ahead of me though as Tom and I are drafting for our first ever Fantasy Football (American) league with our friends. It should be an interesting and fun experience!
Anyway, that's all the news I have right now, but I'm really enjoying doing this, and I hope that we get people interested in what we're doing.
Thanks for listening, reading and/or watching.
I'm really just writing this to make sure that the page isn't empty...
I've been writing most of what you're reading on this site anyway, so give me some slack!
I promise my next post will have actual content and not just filler which I'm hoping will make this look busy...
What you don't know is that it took me until then to realise I could space everything into paragraphs.
