Today's the 7th November, also known as N7 Day, if you happen to be a massive Mass Effect nerd. For a decade now, BioWare has been using N7 Day to celebrate its sci-fi series, wheeling out announcements or reveals as well as spotlighting community efforts.

Sadly, there don't appear to be any big announcements happening today -- where the heck is our remastered trilogy? -- but the Canadian developer has put together a nice celebratory blog post regardless. Said post features an interesting video that details Mass Effect's history. You can give that a watch at the top of this article.

It really is a huge shame that Mass Effect: Andromeda turned out the way that it did. The series clearly means a lot to so many people, and now that EA has put the franchise on ice for the time being, we're more than happy to look back and remember why we enjoyed the original trilogy so much in the first place.
