The Tower of Akenash, a beautifully realized and vertically designed structure, houses the best of Lord Barimen’s noble soldiers and one pesky, sneaky, and murderous green goblin: Styx. This valiant act of intrusion carries with it the mission to steal the Heart of the World Tree for reasons unknown. In order to pull off such a grand […]
Originally published for the Xbox 360 in 2007, five years later, Mass Effect finally arrived to the PlayStation 3 in December of 2012.
