Mass Effect: Andromeda Review

Ryder awakens in the Andromeda Galaxy in 2819, following a 634-year journey on the Ark Hyperion. After having a checkup performed on them by Dr. Lexi T’Perro, Ryder meets SAM, an AI that is in charge of the Hyperion. While the crew are getting ready to awaken Ryder’s sibling, the Hyperion strikes a dark energy cloud, knocking out its power temporarily and interrupting Ryder’s sibling’s wake-up protocol. Ryder, along with Cora Harper, is called to the bridge where their father, Pathfinder Alec Ryder, is arguing with the captain of the Hyperion. Ryder discovers that the planet that they were sent to scout out, Habitat 7, is drastically different from what the long-range scans told them.

Ryder gets ready to be deployed as they are part of the Pathfinder team, led by their father. While on the shuttle down to Habitat 7, Ryder gets acquainted with Liam Kosta, a former security officer. The Pathfinder shuttles are suddenly struck by lightning, and Ryder and Liam end up separated from the crew. As they attempt to explore Habitat 7, they come into contact with an unknown hostile alien race, as well as many strange alien structures. After performing a search and rescue for other crew members, Ryder and Liam eventually reunite with Cora, and fend off another alien attack. They later join Alec, who previously went ahead to scout out the monolith. They storm in an alien structure, hoping to be able to shut it down and cease the lightning storm. Ryder and Alec find a hologram inside the structure, which Alec interfaces with to shut down the monolith. A large blast blow the two off an elevated platform, smashing a hole in Ryder’s helmet. Alec uses his helmet to save his child, sacrificing his own life in the process. Ryder is later brought back to the Hyperion and saved, and in the process, also merged with SAM. Ryder also learns that Alec, before his death, has made them the new Pathfinder in his place.

The Ark reaches the Nexus only to find it incomplete and no other Ark in sight. The crew find out from the leadership of the Andromeda Initiative that all of the worlds, including Habitat 7, were not viable for living, and the Initiative had been stranded in space for fourteen months, with dangers of supply shortage and civil uprising. As the Pathfinder, Ryder is tasked with finding a suitable world for the colonists of the Initiative, while also finding out what happened to the other Arks.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands Review

The game takes place in Bolivia in July 2019. The country has become increasingly unstable as the Santa Blanca, a previously minor Mexican drug cartel, gains more power and influence within the county to the point where Bolivia has become a narco-state and the world’s largest producer of cocaine.

The rise in power of this drug cartel concerns the United States Government, as Santa Blanca’s influence has begun to spread beyond Bolivia. The last straw comes when a bomb targets the U.S. embassy in La Paz and its intended target, DEA agent Ricardo “Ricky” Sandoval, is kidnapped, tortured and then killed by the Santa Blanca. As a result, the United States initiates Operation Kingslayer, a joint operation between the CIA, DEA and JSOC. The United States Army dispatches a fireteam of elite special operations unit called “Ghosts” to destroy the cartel and reveal the connection between Santa Blanca and the local government.[4] The Ghost team consist of Ghost Leader “Nomad”, Tactical Gunner “Midas”, Engineer “Holt”, Sniper “Weaver”. The Ghosts individually make their own way into Bolivia. They rendezvous and are brought to the mission area in Bolivia by helicopter along with their CIA contact, Karen Bowman. When they land in the province of Itacua thet are met with Pac Katari, leader of the Kataris 26, the only resistance against Santa Blanca. Pac Katari gives them their first mission – to recover Amaru, an older man who’s ideologies founded Kataris 26 along with Pac Katari who was captured by Santa Blanca. After this mission the Ghosts are, more or less, free to tackle the cartel in any way and order they see fit.

As the Ghosts dismantle the cartel piece by piece, they eventually are given the option to go after El Sueno. Ordered to regroup with Bowman, the Ghosts find her captive in the presence of the rebels. Told that Pac Katari has betrayed them, the Ghosts race to El Sueno’s fortress to capture him. After fighting their way through enemy opposition. The Ghosts and Bowman find and surround El Sueno, who has just beheaded Pac Katari. Despite surrendering to the Ghosts, Bowman receives a call from her superiors informing that El Sueno had made a deal with the Department of Justice to give up the heads of other cartels in exchange for immunity. The games ending will depend on whether the Ghosts fully dismantled the cartel or not. If the ghosts have fully dismantled the Cartel, Bowman takes El Sueno into protective custody, having taken down others involved with Santa Blanca. If remnants of the cartel remains, Bowman will instead execute El Sueno in cold blood, leading to her dismissal from the CIA and arrest for murdering El Sueno, although she has no regrets of doing so.
