On this week's podcast (episode 22 for those of you keeping count) John, Simon, Rachel and Miguel ponder what the future might hold for the Mass Effect series after the poor reception Andromeda received this week. While there's a good chance it has sold very well, the fact that it has a Metacritic score of just 74 and a user rating that's even lower has to mean the studio is taking a long hard look at whatever it does next.

Later, Simon and Miguel argue over Simon's passion project – a hastily-Photoshopped vision of a future Zelda game with more realistic, higher-fidelity visuals. We won't just tease you with a description of his wishes, we'll show you. Here it is, in all its magnificent glory.
