It should say something that in my 100+ hours in the game I honestly don't even remember the character in question...

It's a super minor character. She shows up on Eos, and the only reason anyone even interacts with her, is because she gives you the quest to go investigate the tremors that lead to (spoiler) the Remnant Architect boss fight.

The only reason I even remember who she was was because the game kept telling me to "Go talk to Hainley", and whenever I did so, she had nothing to say. It wasn't until 30+ hours later that the quest finally became available.

Utopia radically overhauls a lot of the systems in game to good effect. I started a new playthrough with a newly created race and the differences in just race creation are obvious. Totally having a blast so far, just picked up my second Ascencion perk and I've already maxed out one of the Traditions but I have been playing since ~0700 (or whenever it became available) and am smack dab in mid game.

Sounds awesome. The one thing that always made me a bit hesitant about this game is that it seemed you could fairly easily grind to a halt in the mid game, without being able to make decently quick advances against the AI. Is that still the case, do you think?

I'm very much tempted to purchase this now.

...the transsexual character starts every conversation with "I was born a different sex"...

I had been wanting to ask how badly it was done, is that actually how bad it is?

Yes, it is literally that bad. It comes out of absolutely nowhere, and it's clearly just Bioware going "We have a transgendered character! LOOKITHOWPROGRESSIVEWEARE!"

It's pathetic pandering, and done so in a pisspoor manner.

I mean, the character in DA:I did it too suddenly too (the Inquisitor comes out of nowhere and asks "So when did you decide this wasn't who you are", or something like that and it just baffled me, because there had been NO hints that the character was transgendered at all. So this was apparently some psychic bullshit knowledge that came to my character...), but at least it was done after you've already talked with him like five or six times. (even though no hint of it had ever been brought up.)

The Andromeda character, it's the first time you talk about it, and it comes out of nowhere. I fail to see why anyone would be "hurt" over it, but it's just pandering. It serves absolutely no purpose other than some EA manager ticking some frikking box.

We apologize to anyone who interacted with or was hurt by this conversation

Sigh

In any case, maybe now they'll finally stop trying so damn hard with their "Look! We have every possible flavor of character!"

It's literally some EA manager toolbag sitting there, ticking boxes. "Do we have gays? Lesbians? Transgendered? Good. Ship it."

millennials -- generally defined as people under the age of 35 -- "love the programming on television but they don't love the experience on television," Kelly Merryman, YouTube's vice president of content partnerships, said in an interview. "How we can reimagine the television experience for the new generation?

"By pretending they'll endure that exact same experience, but on a FIVE INCH SCREEN instead! By the way, you guys won't believe how much money I make to come up with shit like this!"

Why on earth would you pay money to livestream Thursday Night Football???? For those twelve Detroit Lions / Jacksonville Jaguars / Cleveland Browns fans who don't have TV?

Maybe the bids were $20 versus $100? lol


They bid FIFTY MILLION dollars... If they up the price of Prime because of it, I'm going to lose my shit.

There'll also be one more upcoming patch fix that was tweeted by the lead designer:

Ian S. Frazier: Among other things, this patch reduces the frequency of common "interruptors" such as SAM's hazard updates.

YEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

I'm on Elaaden now, and dear God it's even more annoying here than it was on Voeld...

They are looking to rely even more on community efforts to shape up the marketplace

Of course they are. Rolleyes Anything that gets them out of doing actual fucking WORK themselves.

Soon Steam will announce the awesome "Self-Support Portal!" where you can go to fix your own problem!

If you don't defend yourself, you shouldn't be able to "continue the legal battle."

We as the taxpayers have already coughed up enough money for your horseshit.

That said, since they're in Germany, Blizzard won't be able to do jack shit.

still want that proper sequel to Red Faction 2 btw.. fuckin A that would be good

Did you not like RF: Guerilla?

thats what i meant... is 2 before that one?

Yeah, Guerilla is technically Red Faction 3. There were two sorta ho-hum straight level shooters before Guerilla.

I agree though, I'd love another RF Guerilla. Imagine Guerilla in something like Frostbite. Drool

I'm disappointed in the devs. They somehow managed to remove all the atmosphere of the first one and replace it with a rather generic steath-based game with no style at all. Everything I liked about the first game is gone.

?? They replaced drab boring Dunwall with fresh looking Karnaca, and there's "no style at all?"

finally get to see whether or not this runs shitty or people are just stupid

They released a few patches that cleared things up a little, but there are still areas in some of the levels where it just noticeably chugs. On the flipside, it's nothing a 970 or higher doesn't just power through.
