Month of Mass Effect, Day 29: Future Forward

I’m shamelessly stealing the Mass Effect Month article series created by the always awesome Athena over on AmbiGaming in 2017 (which was the Mass Effect 10th anniversary) and turning it into one of those 30 day challenge thingys! Definitely check out Athena Veta’s great content on AmbiGaming and consider supporting her Video Game Relevancy Crusade (TM) on Patreon, if ya got a few bucks to spare.

Please Note: Enjoy… but be warned that there will be unmarked SPOILERS for all of the Mass Effect games. Read at your own risk!

Today’s Mass Effect series question: Where would you like to see the Mass Effect series go next?

I’ve been mentioning this a lot, I know, but I’d love to see Andromeda get turned into its own trilogy. Yeah, yeah… lots of people hated it. Whatever! I loved it. And damn, Andromeda left SO MANY freaking questions unanswered… where is the Quarian Ark? Will Ryder’s mom be cured (her name is Ellen and I found that cool, by the way)? Where did the kett come from? What are the kett doing? Why are the kett exalting things? Is there a way to fast travel around the Andromeda galaxy without the Milky Way’s Mass Effect Relays? What other species are out there? Who are the Remnants and why did they make all the Vaults/Meridian? What is the root cause of the Scourge? Is anything at all connected to the Reapers of the Milky Way galaxy?

*questions continue on forever*

Also, I would be freaking ecstatic if there was a Mass Effect 4 continuing Commander Shepard’s story. The writers could easily dismiss the weird ending of Mass Effect 3, calling it an Indoctrination trip (Athena has a great video theory on this) or maybe a bad dream injured Shepard was having. The best version of the Destroy ending shows Shepard emerging from some rubble after their “sacrifice” so they can definitely still be alive. Or maybe a game where Liara is the protagonist? I’ll stop pipe-dreaming now.

Thanks for reading!

If for some odd reason you want to read more of my posts, you can find a somewhat organized (and usually up to date) archive of my ramblings… I mean, articles here!


Really like what you read and feel like financially supporting Livid Lightning? HA! Probably not, but hey, here’s a couple ways to fuel my writing pipe dream!

"Lightning" Ellen

My name is Ellen, and I've been babbling on the interwebz about video games for over 15 years. Video games themselves have been a large part of my life since 5-year-old me first encountered a SNES in a children's hospital. Fun times... Video game escapism is still the #1 coping mechanism for adult me these days.

      1. Definitely cause it does seem like BioWare is unfortunately on a chopping block right now which scares me. But I would love to see what Primus will bring, will she continue exaltation to a point where it can be done for all races? Also we still don’t know much about the Remnant, Angara and Jardaan! These are all things a sequel could bring.
