i think this looks great but i guess we're supposed to be ironically detached or something now because its an established franchise?
You're supposed to be non-ironically detached because this is fucking garbage to the power of infinity.
- It screams casual console cover shooter out of every pore. If you watch the combat video, it once again has those conveniently placed rocks, containers etc. just like the previous games so you know exactly when an area has been designed for a combat encounter just from its design.
- What to think of a "RPG" where you have to enter the menu and reroll your class every five minutes depending on the combat situation? That's some really immersive shit, right?
- The facial anims have been rightfully criticized because they look like copy&paste from Mass Effect 1 a decade ago.
- The graphics are generally "teh suck". It's the typical Frostshite problem where everything looks super-artificial like it was modeled from plastic and Lego. This is a horrible engine that does not actually put you "there" but it makes it all feel like a tech demo or a glossy showcase. It's maximum garbage is what it is.
And then you have fucking retarded marketing like this which is very reminiscent of DAO marketing with the heavy metal gore trailer that was clearly aimed at the sub-12 year old demographic.
This game has wait for a sale written all over it if I've ever seen a game with that writing on it.
Anyone with half a brain should at the very least wait until EA discloses their "exciting" DLC plans. All we know is that there won't be a season pass but there will definitely be DLC and knowing EA/BioWhore it'll be stuff you wish woulda been in the game at the start or makes ya wish ya woulda waited for a GOTY complete version or summin'.
So, yeah, it is OK to be totally non-ironically not buying this fucking shit, you know? What a concept!!! Not preordering the latest hype!! OMG!!! Is it even possible???
