(XL) Was the Ending a Hallucination? - Indoctrination Theory Mark IV!

Post by WeAreHarbinger on Wed Mar 30, 2016 5:07 pm

More survey slips.
http://www.pcgamer.com/mass-effect-andromeda-plot-slips-out-in-a-survey/

"Mass Effect: Andromeda takes players to the Andromeda galaxy, far beyond the Milky Way, where players will lead the fight for a new home in hostile territory—where WE are the aliens—opposed by a deadly indigenous race bent on stopping us."

So we're the bad guys?

"There is a major battle brewing, and it awaits you. It is unfolding across a galaxy of planets, with creatures and species entirely unknown. Draw your weapon, because the fight is bigger than you thought. It’s not just for your own life, it’s for all of humanity—the ultimate battle for a place we can all call home."

Um.
Why is all of humanity at risk based on a battle in the Andromeda Spiral, if any of the ME3 endings are Canon?
Why do we need a new home?

Sounds a bit like the Reapers were never destroyed in any ending, huh? That the whole thing was in Shepard's head, even...

Includes footage of what is supposed to be 2014 gameplay of ME:A while under development.  Really, it's just a little clip of not!Shepard with a jetpack.

Looks good enough to be legit, but wow then that main character really fucking looks like Shepard...

Murder-suicide with Dragon Age's continuity.  Very sad.

OK, so this song was posted a year or so ago, saying it was supposedly going to be used in ME: Andromeda.

Now it's got an almost entirely ME-based music video:



No idea of the truth of it being in Andromeda's soundtrack (would the soundtrack even be a consideration that far ahead of release?), but it seems pretty clear that the band really, really, really want it to be...

I saw this picture and I think it beautifully sums up my feelings on Mass Effect: Andromeda.

The music video is ok. And the song does fit the general tune of Mass Effect: it's got a core that can be looped to cover an arbitrary amount of credits and it sounds downright indie-Canadian.

Jesus, I really can't wrap my head around how someone can pay attention to ME3 and NOT realize "the decryption key in this... art". There is a twitch streamer out there - I will not tell her name, she appears to be a rather nice person - who played through the entire trilogy TEN times and just recently released an analysis that is SO wrong, naive and full of speculation and unanswered questions that I am honestly baffled by HOW someone can not see the forest for the trees. I mean, that is so staggering it merits closer investigation. This shit is written our CLEAR AS DAY in the third game! You get about a thousand warnings before the end of the game. Two of the options are riding on the words of the Reaper leader, who told the Leviathans A and then did B. There is a thousand more reasons why doing anything than destroy is just dumb and naive. Do these people have no idea of literary analysis? Gosh, this is so frustrating. I probably shouldn't expect so much from people, but it is still disappointing as all hell. Now I really hope Bioware does something to clear up the mess they left behind with these endings because I can't handle the amount of naivity and lack of education evident in the general player feedback any more. It poisons the entire franchise including the upcoming game. Sorry for this rant, but this is so damn incredible and frustrating. I mean, how is humanity going to go anywhere... Jesus.

That was my complaint.  The mass population of apparent idiots playing this game shocked and saddened me.

Having played a few of the recent jump pack enabled games, I can say that I'd be glad to have one on a true sandbox map. Less so on a typical Mass Effect map. We'll have to wait and see how useful or useless it ends up being.

honestly.... what is the fucking point of a mass effect game with the protagonist wearing a fucking rocket booster pack? how the fuck would he find that useful? jumping up fucking rockfaces? really?

hopefully the antagonists arn't fucking stupid enough to not blow rocketman to pieces. this game mechanic has fucking fail written all over it.

Because people from other countries are all with us, and it's only the Americans that are against using their fucking brain.

The jetpack jump?  Well I don't want to CALL anyone out by name but I have a pretty good OF whom they seem to be emulating here.  It makes sense, they alienated the smart people like us so it's their DUTY to cater to morons and cretins.  I can certainly think of a similar playerbase they can replace us with, and it doesn't require any ADVANCED psychology to woo those fucktards.  ...  WARFARE.

I cannot be the only one who jumped off a cliff in ME1 and left my Mako someplace that was really, really, reeaaaally hard to get back to on foot. Or the only one who went toe to toe with Geth Armatures at range while crossing difficult terrain, for that matter. There are plenty of spots where I can think of a Jet Pack having been useful.

And yes, flying out in the open leaves you with zero cover and increases the likelihood of getting shot. Look at Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to see what I mean. Jumps have to be done quickly with the goal of darting right back into ground cover as quickly as possible.
