Half Elf, to answer your BioWare question (to the best of my knowledge):

Bioware Edmonton - "A" Team (currently working on a mysterious new flagship RPG IP, contains last vets of some who worked on previous games)

Bioware Austin? - "B" Team - Kotor MMO f2p

Bioware Montreal - "C" Team - worked on ME3 Multiplayer and Omega DLC, and now Andromeda (lead writer did Halo 4), someone also made the decision to have a less experienced team learn FrostByte rather than use the Unreal 4 Engine

Also, all the important people (leads) that made the original games jumped ship I believe. Bioware is being consumed by EA, but EA is probably putting their money on whatever Edmonton is doing.

The game just came out guys, ease up on story spoilers. Use the secret tag.

the kettle soldiers are just angarans injected with power range-like baddie injection juice and turn into rock people, it's hilarious! Go go power rangers!

Who came up this crap, it's comedy gold.

So they break their silence huh.

Since I played me1-3 for the star trekness and dialogue, Andromeda is looking like a hard pass since I don't play me games for the combat Alone.

Better luck next time Bioware Montreal C Team.

The absolutely only way they'll get me hyped is if they still have the Original Trilogy setting and a large single-player campaign.

=-Rigs-=

It'll probably be rushed. Dice isn't known for good SP as-is, but co-op campaign mode would be ideal.

Also just out of curiosity after seeing TIE Defender teases for that Death Star expansion, DICE pulled a total cocktease move and made them unflyable. You only get to see a Defender if you drive over a token for it, and an AI assistant shoots stuff for you. One of the most iconic Expanded Universe Imperial starfighters from TIE Fighter and DICE makes it unflyable... That's some kiddie bullshit right there.

After Mass Effect Andromeda how can it get worse... oh wait.. it's EA.

I've been playing ME:A all week, not sure what you mean by "worse". The game is pretty decent, it's ME.

Oh I'm sure you know what we mean by "worse" and "worst". I submit Exhibit A and Exhibit B for viewing lols ;).

I assume the Char 2C is 'what if' it was used. They were only used during WW2, and only 6 were operational during the Battle of France. All 6 were destroyed. Hinting at a future WW2 follow-up game? But eh, whatever it's a game. Too bad BF1 isn't moddable though, I'd love to see what the Forgotten Hope people could do with something like this for a more 'historical' approach.

Great idea, but here's hoping they finally get around to Arcanium next! Lighter

Just download Arcanum Multiverse Edition if you need it 'enhanced.'

Tell ya what though... I'd play a WW2 Battlefield game again in a heartbeat

I think a lot of people would. Rolling around in a Tiger Tank on FrostByte would be pretty sweet. It's too damn bad though that EA/Dice don't put in the work to make FrostByte more moddable. There already would have been a WW2 total conversion mod by now for BF3/BF4 if that were so.

So I'm trying to decide on what level Andromeda is as far as 'not giving a fuck'

Aliens Colonial Marines or Fallout 4?

Instead of buying Andromeda Day 1, I bought Turok 2 for dinosaur shooting fun (violence against dinosaurs man!). Although I also started playing Mass Effect 2 again from an old ME1 import and the dialogue is like night day while watching dialogue scenes from twitch LP's of Andromeda. Andromeda dialogue and writing is sophomoric in comparison in many scenes, I simply can't not notice it. I'm generally very picky with books too, I don't just pick out something based on a cover.

Now I keep thinking about what would be an interesting premise for a future Mass Effect setting, and while going around reading about each planet in ME2, a lot of them that are out in the boonies of Milky Way are popular pirating locations. And then I thought, wouldn't it be interesting instead of a savior or do-gooder you start as a crew of a pirate ship or pirate Captain in the Mass Effect setting? I mean Andromeda is ripe for some piracy cropping up since it all went to shit. They could even let the player choose a race. Another idea would be starting out as ice haulers or haulers of whatever like The Expanse, and get caught up in some conspiracy between "Nu-Citadel" and other system powers.

Man I was really hoping for some epic new galaxy Sci-Fi with some "The Expanse" style or Hard Sci-Fi thrown into the Mass Effect wheel :\.

The RPS one is my favorite. Some EA person will want heads rolling at Bioware Montreal maybe?

Basically this whole ordeal reminds me of the Fallout 4 release. A lot of Massive Hype and concludes in Mixed Disappointment (fallout - ehhhhhh). Just an average ho-hum do stuff on the map game, with weird ass sex scenes, that doesn't really try to improve (in all aspects) above and beyond other games with the IP name/brand.

I'll check it out on a super sale way later or something. People will find their fun with it I guess, so to each their own.

Being a "Gamer" is only dependent on preferences. Some people play games to be immersed by really good graphics and cut-scenes, like Uncharted 4 for example. Some people like good game mechanics that are simple or complex, others good writing, or any combination. So the "Gamer" that goes into Andromeda looking to be immersed with animations that show human-like emotion to match dialogue, have their right to complain if that's what they are looking for IMO. It may seem dumb to others, but that's how it is so I can't really relate to the "not a gamer" thing. I hate Fallout 4 with a passion due to the writing and quest design, for example, but I don't call people that like it "Not Gamers" for enjoying it.

Meh, the animations are comedy, but I'm surprised the focus is so much on that when the writing is far better comedy with zingers like "My face is tired" and "You're not a pathfinder until you PATH found something" and Aliens talking like they are actually from this Century of Earth. Those keyboard bullies went after someone for dumb reasons, when the game has more problems than just animations.

Ok so facial animations stuff aside for a 2017 game ;), apparently this was mined from the Data Files. Even "romancing" is written as Comedy. Someone literally Ok'ed that for Design meetings, do they not know how to make writing that sounds like how people actually talk ffs? I think the ending bits are just grunts from the characters moving around or something though or maybe not...

It's an amazing game, (triple-plat'd it on PS4Pro, up there with Planescape: Torment for narrative framing and story,)

Huh, that's an interesting take for an Action-RPG. So, as far as comparing new release titles, better writing and dialogue than Andromeda?
