Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Mass Effect Foundation #4 Review

Posted on Tuesday, October 22 @ 11:11:30 PST by Keri_Honea
There's finally a Mass Effect Foundation backstory that doesn't include Rasa, a/k/a our Forrest Gump of the Mass Effect universe! The canon foundation story this month features Kaidan Alenko, the biotic sentinel who players either loved or hated. Just to be clear, Rasa does make an appearance in this issue, but she's not part of this particular backstory, which is fantastic just because her presence would be reaching further than her presence in any other backstory.

If you played as the female Shepard in the first Mass Effect, you might have tried to get to know Kaidan Alenko a little bit. If pressed for more about him, he tells a story of woe about his days in biotic camp. Every time you talk to him, you start to wonder if he's going to start the conversation with, "This one time, at biotic camp..." And one time, at biotic camp, Kaidan got really tired of a certain teacher pushing them all around, and he ended up killing him during an exercise. This issue is that tale.

As I was very familiar with this story (I admit I romanced the guy in the first game and might have in the third if he hadn't said he was okay with me cheating on him with Garrus), Mass Effect Foundation #4 didn't really show me anything I didn't already know. I could see this being far more interesting to those who played the first game as a male Shepard or as a female Shepard who didn't care to get to know Kaidan.

Learning a little bit more about him might make him slightly more endearing to those who didn't like him or care about him, but I doubt anyone will run back to replay the game just to chat up Kaidan. Kaidan fans, of course, will eat this up.

Mass Effect Foundation #4 releases tomorrow, October 23rd for both retail and digital downloads from Dark Horse comics.
