BioWare is still mostly in the we’re-not-talking-about-that-yet phase of hyping next years’ Mass Effect Andromeda, but the outlines they’re sketching show a game that’s returning to the strangeness of the 2007 original.

You can’t always get what you want.

Gaming Heads is the one responsible for this Mordin statue, which is good, ‘cause someone else might have gotten it wrong. Sorry.
