Welcome to Queer Fudanshi! Let’s talk. Today, we’re going to talk about Mass Effect, Mass Effect: Andromeda & gaymers.
New to Monday Posts? Every Monday I pick a random topic to share and talk to you guys about. In addition, each topic can have a varying category.
There are Ramble times where I discuss topics in a more casual fashion such as Why #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyFriend is Plausible, but not Possible, or How Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (AKA The Scorbus Play) Failed the LGBT Community. Lastly, there are Character Studies such as the ones I did for The Mindy Project and Ugly Betty where I discuss Queer characters from media with detail. Are they great representation? Are they not? And why.
So Let’s Get Talking.
Just as in last week’s Random talk about Rictor from the X-Men was made up in honor of the film Logan’s release, today’s topic is about the Mass Effect series in honor of the newest game, Mass Effect: Andromeda, coming out tomorrow. (And to honor the fact that I will soon be disappearing from the world to play the game).
The topic is about the relationship between Mass Effect, Mass Effect: Andromeda & gaymers. Specifically, there’s a little about the premise of the story, the background of game development, and the LGBTQ factors that make people think the game is so LGBTQ inclusive.
