"For $60 you’ll get full access to all of this content – although of course some teenager who is online 24/7 will get to experience it, and then when you log in, you just get to see the 15000 targets all killed by other people with more spare time than you do.

"So, really, for $60, YOU just get to do jack fucking shit."

Sounds great, guys.

Okay, so did that one trooper just move behind the fallen soldier, pick her up, call in a Skyranger, then run roughly 700 feet with a soldier on his back, all in a single turn?

That seemed... rather impossible.

Really, REALLY want to see a change to Engagement. The absolute worst part of EU was spending time to cleverly and quietly move a squad forward only to have spotted enemies get free movement to cover before combat. Let me get fucking sneak attacks and/or stealth kills.

There is a mod that lets you disable that, and to be honest, it makes the game just truly absurdly easy. Two snipers hanging back with squad sight = a LOT of dead aliens before they can even take a move.

If they allow for that, then they need to put in an "enemy converges" mode where after you take a few of them out, the rest all just bumrush you. (Which could be cool, as you could set up a defense). And then have silenced weapons to keep from being converged on.

In any case, I see why they do it. It sucks, but it's either "See them and they scramble for cover", or all the aliens just sit in cover waiting for you to show up.

By Ubisoft, so the graphics won't look anything like this when it comes out, but it still looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Everyone remember that 2070 had truly ludicrous amounts of DLC, so probably best to wait for a bundled edition.

They also blocked cross region trading and gifting on all game listings for Anno 2205 and yes, they sell a Season Pass already (part of the Gold Edition, listed as 70€ or 80€ without whatever rebate is in the works there. That's some extremely insane pricing for a game like this...

Ouch, that just reminds me that they absolutely DLC'ed Anno2070 to death. I got the entire game plus expansion for like 30 bucks or so, and it had a fantastic amount of content, but when I see how much of it was due to the DLC, I'm gonna guess that out of the box, anno9999 won't be as awesome.

I'll wait for a bundled edition.

KOTOR Online: Awesome trailers, meh game.

Pretty much. I'm a little surprised Disney hasn't killed it (I guess that means it's making money) seeing as how it's non canon now...


Undoubtedly EA has a license for several years and would charge Disney a metric fuckton of cash if Disney tried to cancel it before the contract is up.

The crafting an entire settlement thing just looks fun as hell. I can't wait to build a monstrously fortified Yankee Stadium in the middle of fucking Boston.

That leaked survey thing has a whole section on collecting resources, thanks EA just what people love about your games - BUSYWORK!

Witcher 3 proved you can have meaningful secondary content without making it repetitive grindathons, why can't EA with its infinitely bigger pockets figure this out?

Well, CDProjekt actually cares about their players, whereas EA only cares about money.

But the shit writing and the end-o-tron 4000 with the colored lights was basically like taking a shit on someone's chest and calling it a souffle.

...

Anyway, Shepard won't be back, but I really, REALLY hope we get Jennifer Hale back for FemAndromedaN7.

In true Ubisoft fashion, the graphics got downgraded again by roughly 40000%.

Might still be cool, though.

Well, looks like my Xmas is set, between this and Just Cause 3.

Then Square Enix will drop the bomb tomorrow at E3 announcing the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Q4-2015, and then we'll have the stress of deciding which one to play.

Feast or Famine!

That said I'm tentatively intrigued. I'm wondering why all the armor, weapons and technology looks the same if this is supposed to be 'long after the events of Mass Effect'.

It's weird that they did that anyway, since they've always kept saying that it'd be set during or even before the time of Shepard, not after. Shepard picking Red, Green or Blue was the final end point of that galaxy.

My guess is that a single human ship was sent on a cryogenic voyage to Andromeda, to safeguard the human race from extinction at the hands of the Reapers. So this could be a million years later while they still have the same technology. (of course, this completely goes counter to their stated way of FTL technology, which requires discharging in a planet's atmosphere to prevent cooking the crew with radiation.)

Also are they just going to white wash the final events of ME3? How every intelligent species was basically stuck in earth space with absolutely no way to leave? Or how many systems were utterly destroyed with their relays blew up? It appeared that most of the galaxy basically blew the fuck up.

Nah, they'd already retconned that in the Extended Cut ending. (After trying their fucking hardest to pretend that they hadn't made "mass effect gate blows up means supernova in star system" part of their lore.)

While the gates are temporarily destroyed, in the Extended Cut endings you see the humans (or the Reapers, depending on your ending) repairing the gates.

Chu Chu! I'm fucking DOWN for more Mass Effect!

1.5 years away though.

Also, this is a terrible trailer. Country music should never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever evereeervevrebvrebrebrebreraegreryg be used for a game trailer. EVER.

Supposedly the Xbox One version will have mod support? Fucking weird. How will that even work? A simple NPC mod could bring the system to its knees.

Yeah, that would need to be very carefully culled to solely allow for mods that alter UI and things like that. Something like Mart's Monster Mod would make an Xbone not even power on.

Super Excited about this. That looks so awesome. And they were showing off the Xbox version of the game. so you can imaging how much nicer the PC version will look.


Sadly, Bethesda isn't really well known for releasing better looking PC versions of their stuff. It's always the same game across all platforms. :\

(Okay, at least they released a somewhat decent HD texture pack for Skyrim, so hopefully with the 8+ million PC sales of Skyrim, they've decided to put more than 0 cents of effort into their PC port.)
