Mass Effect: Andromeda (PC/PS4/XB1)

  • The exploration trailer does have me more excited, however I will wait on this since I didn't like the direction the series took on the past, so I'll wait and see how it turns out,

  • I've been trying to keep my excitement in check.. and while I'm still a bit nervous, I'm starting to get pretty excited. I loved the first three games and it feels like its been awhile since we've had a good sci-fi adventure game

  • @JoleeHonso I think it will be either strong GOTY contender, or it will be completely forgeotten.

  • @Nillend if its just average I'll still be happy but I have high hopes. its been a long time since we got a new bioware game and this trailer really shows all the world content going on.

  • ME games have a special feeling to me, so I'm excited for this.
    I don't worry too much about this game. It might not be a 10 out of 10, but I know I will enjoy my time with it.
    My opinion might be iffy though, since ME3 is my fave game.

  • I'm going to have to finish Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn before I even touch Andromeda.

    Not to mention that I haven't fully finished Nioh or Yakuza 0.

    I'm still hyped, but nothing is going to pull me out of Hyrule just yet.

  • I am very interested in Andromeda but I am still in the process of saving Hyrule and will be for a while. I think by the time I have wrapped up my time there Persona 5 will be out so I'll be jumping into that. At that point I'll have a pretty hefty backlog that I will have to sift through and rank the significance of to determine playing order. Not sure where Mass Effect will land in that list now but its definitely on there.

    There appears to be a spicy hot redhead who is probably the only good choice if you're straight because God knows there's not a single good lay in your main squad.

    You can't take away my sexy redhead!

  • @Fkevy1hre If someone can, then Biowere.

  • For anyone who cares. You can start your Origin Access 7 day trial until March 21 in Europe. This means you could start it today and play Mass Effect on the 16th if you like. However, if your like me and dont live in Europe you can use a VPN to access the 7 day trial at this time. North American 7 days trial ended a week ago just before Mass Effect releases early.

    I think people should give no mans sky a second chance. Although I admit its not my type of game (something about the colors in the game puts me off). My bro just received a copy this morning and I had a chance to play it for a while and it was not as bad as I was expecting.

  • I just finished Horizon Zero Dawn, so now I could breath for a week or so and then look in Andromeda's direction. I'm on the fence, to be honest. Haven't preordered, definitely waiting for the reviews. When's the embargo, by the way?

    But I do have to say that that Exploration trailer was really good. I wasn't that into this before that, but oh boy, did that have everything I would hope for in a game like this or what! So addictive. Still, I want to hear more about the game as a whole, get some sense of the big picture. Thus, reviews, please.

    Just a heads up that Blood will stream the start of the game in 3,5 hours (give or take)

  • This game has some Bad Faces! Like really. I was starting to get really into this with the Exploration trailer, but now that I've watched some stuff those faces break the magic all the time. Especially with humans. No expressions, just a weird smile all the time. Disappointing, that sort of thing. I feel my mood is changing. Still waiting for the reviews, though.

  • @Sentinel-Beach

    The reviews are not gonna rate it down because of Bad faces. The game still offers the same game play we come to expect from Bioware. It has improved on a lot of aspects but I'm afraid this game looks too inflated and that will definitely have an affect on graphics, story and characters.

  • @Sentinel-Beach @MSBi

    I downloaded the origin early access last night. I was happy with the character I was able to make. Her face looked fine. However, yes the animations are a little wonky. I don't know if it is that it's any different then other bioware games or that we have been playing a lot of games wit mocap now. Mind you some companies I'm sure are doing a better job with animation. Either way, I'll probably enjoy it. I understand ppl want perfection in all areas, but the game is still really pretty, and as long as it offers a good RPG experience I'll be happy.

    On a side note, if it's anything like inquisition I'll probably hate it lol.

  • @CGamor7

    Well I haven't played Inquisition. Thanks for the comparison. If I am disappointed it will be the first. Even though past mass effect games were wonky too and had glitches which I wont name here (tons of them). that did not inhibit the experience, it amplified my enjoyment. That's how i role. In no way I am encouraging bad game design and development. A game is game. Fun is why I play.

    People complaining because in there heads they have convinced themselves that ME:A will be GOTY and the closer got to the release the more disappointing it was for some people which made the very same (hyped up people) question if they wasted there time hyping up this game so they assumed defensive mode.

    If you look close enough you would see a game is being played in real life. I am trying to spectate.
