Sophia Park & Ben Gelinas
In today's episode we are joined by special guests Sophia Park of Aether Interactive/DMG, and Ben Gelinas, former writer/editor from BioWare and indie dev! We make some small talk before getting into the thick of things, Mass Effect. We talk about Andromeda; its missteps, misinterpretations, and its heart. We chat about the series as a whole as well, our favorite characters and moments and why we think Andromeda deserves another look. Ben gives us insight into Bioware and the writing process for Andromeda, while Sophia gives us perspective and helps us view Andromeda in a new light.
