Did you miss the first installment of this month’s Digest, in which we dissected BioShock Infinite? Imagine your good fortune—the episode is still available online!
It was the final moment for an icon of science fiction, and fans were angry. They wanted a fitting sendoff for the characters they’d grown to love—a sense that their journey mattered. What they got instead was an ending that came out of nowhere and was distressingly pat about what had come before. I’m referring, of course, to the final episode of Star Trek: Enterprise. But now that I think about it, Mass Effect had kind of a similar deal, didn’t it? Well, in any case, the Citadel expansion gives players one last visit with their crewmates from the Normandy. Drew Toal joined me to eat a pineapple donut and to discuss this poignant farewell to the Mass Effect trilogy.
