Epic Conventions in Mass Effect

I’ve got another article up for Mass Effect Week at Medium Difficulty, about how the Mass Effect series exhibits a lot of the qualities of the original epics. And some of the literary ones, too. It is, dare I say it… EPIC?! That’s one thing BioWare always strives for: large-scale, life-or-death, cataclysmic struggles between good and evil and really, really snarky. Go big or go home, unless your home is on Earth, because I hear that’s on fire or something.
