News Comments > Mass Effect: Andromeda Patch This Week
7. Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda Patch This Week Apr 4, 2017, 19:41 Phasenoise
 
I propose two small changes.

1. Stop putting the camera below characters faces. This is wildly jarring for people used to TV/Movies where the perspective is generally from eye level to slightly above eye level. Insisting we should see up Ryder's nostril is very odd, and its basically the default.
2. Stop having characters stare a foot above the person with whom they converse. Not only does this just look odd by itself, but it lends itself to that weird craned neck look characters often have in the spoof reels.

Those two things would help a metric ton.

The game itself is actually pretty fun, and the graphics are often incredible. The texturing is very good. Interestingly enough, they freaking NAILED the meshes, textures, and speaking animations of Krogans. Humans/Asari, not so much.

Coach seating is inhumane if you are over 5'10". Your knees will be crammed into the seat in front of you, god forbid they try to recline - you'll die.

I get they are saving costs, and I'm sympathetic. I'd even pay for a little more room. Sadly the gulf from "sardines" to business or first class is HUGE in cost. I'd like some Coach Plus where they can still treat you like shit but you get two more inches of space.

There is no way a bios update is going to improve performance by 25%. Please don't believe that.

It's FINE that nobody would be playing DoW2 anymore. The fact that 2% keep playing this odd grindy crappy offshoot is the anomaly, not the actual market to chase.

I'm fine with them leaving that out and making the actual RTS game itself better.

The art/sound/writing teams are usually done well in advance of the final programming and QA efforts. They can either move on to a new game, or develop content to be integrated post-ship for the original in that time frame.

That aside, I find most DLC dramatically overpriced for the value. I already paid for the engine and core development. Add-ons should be very incrementally priced.

Alternately, I don't buy and wait for the inevitable GOTY/Director's Cut/Platinum edition.

I'm confused over mixed messaging.

First it's all like "don't shoot women".

Now it's all like "not enough big women are being shot".

Make up your minds people!

Time moves forward. These games have really long legs - look at the number of people still playing Skyrim. Think of the graphics power you had in 2011 vs now.

Besides, its optional. Don't want it, don't install it.

If AMD had non-shitty DX11 drivers it would help a lot. The hardware has a ton of power and potential, and when developers largely bypass the drivers (DX12/Vulkan) we can see great results.

But they shouldn't have to do this.

Oi the matchmaking lately. I don't know why the game has it in for me lately, but jesus christ every team is a rogues gallery of complete incompetents.

I'm guessing it's some xmas rush of mouthbreathers or maybe young kids?

REGULATION IS TEH BADZ. STOPPING TEH INNOVATIONZ AND STUFFZ.

Meanwhile, countries with working regulation merrily go along with dramatically faster speeds, at dramatically lower prices.

But, I know, their innovation must be stifled SOMEHOW.

Are they doing a real singleplayer expansion in parallel, or just missing a giant opportunity?

All this multiplayer DLC seems so... "who cares".

Yep, was thinking that.

Some new media instructions, higher clock rates, but more or less the same chip. Precisely as you'd expect from the final Tock in a Tick Tock Tock cadence.
