Question Mass Effect: Andromeda



Well.. it's almost here.

Through EA Access on Xbox, I got a 10-hour trial of the game. I played for about 4 hours last night, and got through the intro, the tutorial level, and a bunch of walking around the ship/etc. Even scanned a few planets.

... and it's... okay. I guess. It's not great. The story so far seems interesting, it has potential. The graphics are really not very good in some parts. The facial animation feels like it's somehow worse than the old games on the Xbox 360. I'm not sure how it's possible.. but it's really bad. The vistas and space stuff looks nice, even the aliens look fine.. it's the humans.. like they forgot how to make people look like people. It's very distracting.

Combat is good, probably a little better than previous entries, but it's nothing revolutionary.

Talking takes as long as ever.. side quests are still kind of annoying fetch quests or scan this quests.

I'm going to try and finish out my 10 hours to see if I still want my pre-order. I was all gung-ho about this games before actually playing it.. now I might just stick to Wildlands!

Anyone else playing or planning on playing?

Seems like the general public is finally hopping off Biowares balls nowadays. Oh well, Witcher 3 has been making me want to go achievement hunting...

Traitor. You do not hear me calling for a Titan fall or an ODST drop.

It's ok, I tried to play a little last night, and got about an hour in and just nope'd the hell out and went back to Ghost Recon.

I canceled my Mass Effect preorder at Best Buy today.. even though I got the limited edition or whatever for $45 on sale. The game runs like ass on Xbox, and the animations are terrible across the board. I have a feeling there is still going to be a good/enjoyable story there, but I think I'll wait for Scorpio improvements/on sale later this year.

I wasn't expecting it to be as vast as it is. It's actually impressive. I never played the 1st, but I caught myself up on the story. The 2nd one was good, but the 3rd is truly a marvel. I rank it in my top 5 easily.

Yeah at first glance when I saw the map I was like "That's it?" but it actually covers quite a large area, and the cities are very full as well.

Regarding Mass Effect.. you got to watch this:
