Mass Effect Andromeda Crew

  • Hmm... all krogans look alike to me. Actually, that goes for salarians as well. Wondering if that makes me a space racist.

  • They need a Sombra.

    Hopefully the human race in andromeda is not represented by a bunch of Americans. I don't mean that in any other sense then western representation. Would be nice to see some other cultural representations from Earth.

  • @El-Shmiablo
    So currently if I want to play my Ryder as a straight female, I have one choice? Cause I think the Turian was female too....

    Can I romance the Salarian then? Or was that a female too?

    Either way romance or not, I'm hoping there are more team mates to be shown.

  • Looks like those TV drama cast photos from the 2000s. Like the cast of 24 or something.

    I can't handle the melodrama and exposition in this series. Crappy shooting in between doesn't help. Not too excited but I'll give it a chance.

  • That crew looks very generic.. But here's hoping the game is still good! The ME universe is so good imo.

    I'm hoping it's good too.

    I need my space opera fix. If Bioware doesn't deliver some other publisher needs to step in with their own space adventure game.

  • @Art probably waiting for Amy Hennig's Star Wars game at this point.

    Is Amy the director or writer? Because she's not very good as a director.

  • @suplextrain not a fan of Uncharted I take it?

    From Games radar article:
    *Visceral Star Wars has a strong pedigree. Amy Hennig is the former lead writer of the Uncharted series, so you can thank her for your love of characters like Nathan Drake and Sully. Jade Raymond played a crucial role as the Executive Producer on the Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell series. Finally, Todd Stashwick is better known as a television actor in Batman prequel series Gotham as well as 12 Monkeys. He's since transitioned to gaming and will be lending his writing chops to Visceral's Star Wars game. All have been responsible for some impressive projects, and it'll be interesting to see what they can do with the Star Wars license. *

    No I am, but she directed Uncharted 3 and when you read and watch interviews about how she directs it's no wonder the game turned out to be a mess. Also to be perfectly honest (even though I like the series) the Soul Reaver series are very weak as games.
    I think she should stick to writing.

  • She also directed uncharted 1 and Co directed Uncharted 2. Just saying.

  • @TokyoSlim that has made me lose any interest I may have had in that project

  • @TokyoSlim said in Mass Effect Andromeda Crew:

    As I said, I don't view her as a good director. If she's the director for the new SW game then I lost whatever hype I had.

  • @bard91 when compared to a modern day Bioware game? You have weird standards. Lol

    I'll take the Amy Hennig and Jade Raymond collaboration in a heartbeat over whoever green lit Dragon Age II: return to shit mountain and/or pick the red or blue (oh, we also added green later) ME ending. I'm not saying that Uncharted is amazing or Bioware is utter trash . But I'm just comparing the two trajectories here. Bioware needs to get back on the horse after a string of mediocre (IMO) games, and Hennig has made one game that wasn't as good as the previous two she did.

  • @TokyoSlim I'm not super excited about ME Andromeda (I've yet to play Dragon Age: Inquisition, and I prefer DA a lot over ME), but at least BIoware games have always seemed at least good to me (DA2 is the exception), even if ME3 has a lot of things I hate.

    the Uncharted games on the other hand, I think are barely decent games, and hearing that the director of those games is in charge of any project would make me immediately unexcited.

    Dragon Age 2 is absolute garbage, that I can agree with.

  • @bard91 well then you better hope Andromeda is shiny and glorious. :p

    Inquisition was bloated. Had its moments, but they were oftentimes dozens of hours apart, separated by fetch quests you had to do to progress in the story. Which is fine if you like that, and insufferable if you don't.

    Everyone hates Sera, but I kinda liked her. I can't remember his name now, but the Qunari voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr was also great. Highlight of the game imo.

  • Anyhow, back on topic: looking forward to the new alien boning and resource management sim from Bioware.

    I have it preordered!

  • Looks ok. Need to give the characters a chance to grow on the audience though.

    Commander Shephard's legacy won't be an easy one to live up to.
