IGN article wrote:Despite all of that, I couldn’t shake the feeling that the Ryders, and some of the supporting human characters, look a whole lot more like they walked out of The Sims 3, rather than walking out of a game releasing in 2017. Their eyes, eyelashes, and mouths specifically look particularly cartoony, with some awkward dialogue animations.

If IGN a major ass -kisser outlet for Bioware has the audacity to say that it must be pretty shitty as seen in the trailers so far. That so called character kit update is a touch up that any amateur adobe user can do in a few minutes. It's already too late anyway the thing is about to ship. Animations are here to stay, the max that could improve are the shaders but with butt ugly looking fish eyed humans to deal with an update of that sort wouldn't matter.

"... when creating your character it does ask you to select the gender of the “legendary Commander Shepard”..."

Seems doubtful they would use either of the default Shepard images, given player customization in previous games.
So the only reason to make this choice is for... who's voice appears at some point?
Which means Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale will appear, but aren't officially credited yet. Speculation abounds I'm sure. Neutral

It doesn't mean Shepard VA.

It can just mean that if referring to Commander Shepard, it uses he or she, her or him.

Which I suppose might be a little weird, because they could have just as well made that a conversation option, like the Council choice in ME2. So sure, its possible that they use Shepard VA for an intro before doing any conversation option.



What was more interesting to me is that there is confirmation of a 'Mass Effect Archives', a Dragon Age Keep like system. While it isn't confirmed that ME1-ME3 choices are featured or will be featured at some point, it at least leaves open the possibility for some point (MEA, MEA DLC, 'ME5').

Yeah am guessing that's just to use the right VO files so that Shepard is addressed as he/him/his or she/her when required.

Mark Meer is far too versatile to be tied down to just one type of role. He will be in ME:A as other Aliens, possibly as Vorcha, Volus etc.

....surely the Krogan wouldn't have brought Vorcha with them....

EDIT: And then I remembered that someone brought a Pyjak to Andromeda. Ugh.

Utterly boring, SJW, tired, cliché narrative, pure Mac Walters hack job.


As I said years ago, just like ME3, the only great part of this game will be the multiplayer. So I'm not going to disappointed or bitter, because I knew what to expect. The last great Mass Effect single player experience was Citadel DLC, then before that the master piece of ME2.

If you've played the recent SWTOR expansions or DA3, you know EAWare can't do great narratives and single player RPGs anymore. It's quite obvious.

My advice, if you didn't love ME3 MP, pass up on Andromeda. Wait for a sale. Hell DA3 was discounted big time mere months after its release, same will happen with Andromeda.

Suspect

Once upon a time, you used to be a fount of positivity TurianRebel. You absolutely spurted with the stuff. What happened to you, mang? You changed.

Are you sure you're not confusing him with TurianBatman?  I remember confusing them for a while.  Took me longer than I care to admit to realize my mistake.

Oh no, Citadel was definitely crap. I detested the main story of that DLC. It made a mockery of how I viewed the game world.

Citadel was just pure unapologetic cheesy fan (read: groupie) service. It felt totally out of place.

Meanwhile Bioware Arryn Flynn is drumming up Full Nudity rating from ESRB, apparently now that is a big thing for ME. Along with Mike Gamble's "pretty good banging" (I don't even...)

Today's sophisticated gamer: Oh shit no full on nudity??! Not gonna buy this game!.

Yup that's how we rate them games in 2017.

No, they're too busy catering to SJW filth.

IGN have done a video of part of Peebee's loyalty mission.



It's being excoriated in the comments section and the like / dislike ratio, while still positive, is nothing to write home about. I won't spoil too much but Peebee does something incredibly irresponsible that should have gotten her thrown off the ship and the combat seems a chore to me.

Also, isn't it a bit odd how often Ryder has to fight Milky Way species? I know that people prepared to spend 600 years asleep on a possibly suicidal trip into unknown space probably wouldn't be the most stable sorts, but they seem to have recruited actual gangsters to come along on this "mission of exploration".

A petty dislike but it bothers me that Ryder's dialogue doesn't sound like she's wearing a helmet. I always loved that about ME 2/3, where if you wore a face covering helmet it would show in your dialogue.

Anyway yeah i'm not into this at all. It's almost release and i can't say any trailer, footage or article has made me go "give it a chance" it's just turned me away more and more. Also EDI > SAM.

I missed the Thane thing. Must not have been paying attention.

I kind of went like this upon seeing the Normandy photo shoot and everyone saying Normandy.



It's just me, but I think crash landing a ship into a planet with volcanoes and stuff is a jab at this. They did say there was going to be references to the trilogy in Andromeda.

Heh, maybe Mac read that later Rama book, in which the aliens sent Rama back to Earth, so that we could send a fine contingent to represent humanity, and some bright figure saw it as an opportunity to save moolah by emptying the prisons into the thing. :P

SimCity's Launch Arcology doubles as a convenient way to get the homeless out of your city: by shooting them into space.  It would amuse me if the arks are treated similarly with governments sneaking in undesirables and political enemies just to get rid of them in a means they can write off as probably humane.

Heh. Space Australia.
