I think I might be done with BioWare forever.

Welcome to the club. About the only thing Bio could put out now that could possibly entice me to buy one of their games is a Jade Empire sequel, and that's only because I love wuxia so freakin' much and I'm desperate for a wuxia RPG.

As for ME:A being a good shooter but bad RPG, no surprise there. Ever since ME1 they've been systematically stripping out the RPG elements and focusing on action. Coincidentally, Bethesda has been doing the same thing with FO and TES.

I would love to see Spiders do a spiritual successor to Jade Empire. They've got the janky gameplay but pure love of the genre that BioWare used to have.

Sorry for the double post but I had to share this

I dunno why I found it so funny. Maybe sleep deprivation

Nitpicking this game is probably all the fun I'm going to get out of ME:A since my old computer can't run it. This is a clear Win Win situation for me.

 

To you people who've played the game, how long after your fathers death is this? To me he sounds about as upset as if he'd dropped a carrot on the floor.

I can't remember exactly how long, but I would eat my hat (if I wore a hat, that is) if it was longer than 30 minutes. The opening happens so fast and so little of it makes sense that brushing off papa Ryder (heh) was pretty easy to do.

To be fair, there's a big slice of "I barely knew my dad. He was always working/busy/away. Plus half the reason we're out here on Andromeda is because he did something that got his official military career ended in dishonourable discharge and it's part of the surviving family starting fresh" background to it as well.  You do get the mix of options of playing it "I didn't know him" versus "I still loved him"

 

For the devil's advocate role as well, both the Ryder kids have been hard trained in crisis management/pathfinder apprenticeships in a sense, so doing the whole compartmentalisation and dealing with the immediate problems at hand facing 20,000 people potentially dying in the relative short aftermath of his death isn't too hard a stretch.

 

Hm, I wouldn't say the opening happens fast or makes little sense, it all pretty flowed in a logical manner (as Space Opera can get).

 

Just in case anyone might find it too spoilerific:

For what its worth, I actually think Andromeda looks pretty okay. A lot has been made of the animations and not without reason but it isn't much of an issue moment to moment.

 

I don't like how quickly they dispense with Clancy Brown though. You've got Mr Krabs there - use him!

Think how many potential flashbacks, hidden audio logs, and memory moments could turn up in the rest of the game. I get the feeling there's a lot more Clancy Brown used.

They made it a part of the culture war already. It's like the Ghostbusters reboot. Half the world is pointing the finger going 'look, a woman who is bad at something' she must have gotten her job because of her superior social skills, I feel threatened. 

 

 

The other going 'Freeedoooom' I will buy Mass Effect Andromeda and promote equal rights by doing so.

Saw a video comparing the hair physics from Tomb Raider to MEA, and it made me wonder if there actually is any sort of option for it?

 

Or perhaps the poor facial animations are there to draw away any attention from the fact that the ponytails are covered in polyester resin? :o
