    • Yep.  I thought the open world would be good, make it more like Mass Effect 1 in that regard, but instead it became generic fetch-quests over a couple of biomes...  And oh god I forgot to mention SAM and the constant temperature updates!  The battles had no weight either, you could say the battles in the original trilogy were a bit clunky at times but it gave a 'space marine' feel.  Flanking was important, cover, etc.  In this, you bounce around constantly moving being hyper with no sense of the greater picture. I had no intention of playing 3 until my partner encouraged me to get it on the PS3, kept feeling like that had moments and individual stories of interest but with a main plotline that really just sucked balls, and that was before the Star Child ending.  Dunno about the SJW bits, but the Bioware of today is just a flesh-skin being worn by EA, one that will be put out of its misery soon enough.  Oh, that reminds me!  The thing that got me the most was how the game felt like it was pretending to be a Mass Effect game.  I read a quote somewhere that pretty much summed up the issue: that the game felt like someone had copied someone elses homework and changed things around without really understanding what it was they were doing.  Gonna add that in the review actually. Oh, the two of you may be interested in the following article, as with anything on the interwebz the source of the piece's information could be questioned but it seems to explain many of the issues seen in the game. http://kotaku.com/the-story-behind-mass-effect-andromedas-troubled-five-1795886428
    • I loved the first two, but after seeing @Aurian play 3 and Andromeda, I had absolutely no interest. Honestly, the facial models looked amateurish and a real step back. It was laughably bad, to be honest. " While I managed to create a reasonable looking character the options seemed rather restrictive and strangely enough one of the difficulties I found was trying to dial back the hipster look.  Most of the hairs and beards are the kinda things you expect douchebags in Starbucks to have" Lolcano   This is what happens when the core team leaves and you get cost-cutting plus SJW idiots running the show. Yes, SJW's infected Bioware and this is what you get.  https://www.geek.com/games/mass-effect-andromedas-facial-animations-were-reportedly-outsourced-1694894/  
    • I loved the original trilogy. This one was a SLOG. They tried to make it open world. Instead of tightly scripted exciting battles that varied by location, there were all these boring open world battles that played the same way each time, and were far less exciting. Mass Effect's original trilogy excelled in interesting battle settings that were exciting. This was snooze fest outside one or two areas.  Bioware always sucked at the character customization, but I swear they get worse with each iteration.  Oh and F%$#^ing fetch quests. PISS OFF. Really, I'm supposed to save the galaxy and I am world-hopping looking for popcorn? Really?  Oh and SAM, stop telling me about temperatures and mining points every 2 seconds. SHADDUP.   
    • True, but I like to think most people in the community are level headed people who treat others with respect and what happens on Twitter is the exception.  (I hope)
