Mass Effect, one of my favourite franchises, is the topic of the latest Did You Know Gaming.

Watch on YouTube

Mass Effect’s secrets are laid bare in the video above, the latest in the endlessly fascinating Did You Know Gaming series.

To be honest, I did know everything in this video, but since I’m the site’s official Mass Effect tragic nobody is in any way surprised. Did you know the Turians are partially inspired on birds of prey?

The Mass Effect series will continue soon. Development has been transferred from the Edmonton studio to Montreal (although the two teams share a general manager, Aaryn Flynn). We don’t know much about the new game, but that doesn’t stop me speculating wildly based on a collection of clues.
